Six friends, table is close to the door. The biggest thing to complain is the dim light. Service is great, appetizers are not to our taste, the following main course is good except the oyster, the sauce with oyster is weird.
Overall, the experience is great, 8courses for 150GBP

Amazing experience for our last meal out before Christmas. The service was impeccable, with all staff knowledgeable about the food being served. Vicktor was particularly welcoming. Portion sizes were good for a tasting menu and wines were well picked to go with the food. Highly recommend as a special occasion restaurant.

Sublime, unbelievable food served by the most professional, friendly and welcoming staff! Most restaurants in this category offer excellent food, but this was a cut above. Imaginative and interesting the whole way through, it was also perfectly portioned such that we did not feel bloated at any point. I never thought I would be waxlyrical about a mushroom... But, for us, the ambiance imparted by the staff really set this place apart. If you want a quiet romantic meal, they will no doubt detect this and oblige accordingly. However, if want a more interactive experience, they are fully willing to oblige. We had the pleasure to be hosted by Jack and his excellent team, who all imparted their knowledge with both passion and humour. We cannot wait to go back, using any special occasion as an excuse!

An amazing birthday experience. From the moment you enter the restaurant till the end it feels like home. Warm and happy smiles, spotless service and the food....every dish has a story and surprise on your mouth. We had the tasting menu and it was worthy. The combination of colours and flavours was fantastic. If you want to celebrate a special occasion or even to have a quiet and lovely lunch you should go.

This is the best all round restaurant experience we’ve had yet. The food at El Bulli was more cutting edge, yet this is better than any other 3 star Michelin experience, primarily because, unlike most 2 and 3 star experiences, it’s not trying too hard, yet it’s near perfection. A lot of 2 stars disappoint. But this doesn’t. The vegetarian tasting menu was sublime. The service is there when you need it and not when you don’t. The sommelier is great and it’s not full of braying, offensive new money yaboos. It’s just right. Everything is just right. Thanks to all at the Ledbury.

Best food I’ve had in London - amazing tasting menu, which was perfectly matched with a fantastic group of wines.

Very attentive, but never intrusive staff, and a lovely dining room which was lively but not overly noisy.

They make a good martini, too.

First 2 stars restaurant that I have tried. Met my expectation and hit top score on all front!

Service was warm and friendly. Cosy environment, felt I was in a 5 star luxury hotel. And the food... just amazing. Delicious, full of fresh seasonal ingredients cooked perfectly. Every item on every dish was put together to lift the taste of the plates to a greater level. I applaud for the attention to detail in every aspect. My wife and I had a wonderful experience and definitely one to recommend for a special occasion!

Food as always was great - but at £130 pp for lunch it’s not exceptional enough. Either they need to take more risk or revert to their £49 weekend set lunch price point

Shame - used to be my favourite

Fantastic - everyone was so friendly, helpful and happy!

The meal (we opted for the four courses) was amazing - the flavours and creativity were superb. Having dined at many Michelin restaurants the Ledbury is at the top of their league. We were also delighted to meet the chef and see the kitchen - this was very much appreciated. A big thank you to everyone for a great culinary experience.

Food excellent. Service by and large good although one or two slightly surly waiters/sommelier, perfunctory rather than friendly overall. Probably a bit of retraining needed to get with the times.

This is undoubtedly a wonderful restaurant that’s been around for years and we had a lovely evening but whilst the food was good, it didn’t blow us away. In fact, the dessert courses I actually found disappointing. We were celebrating my birthday so I did get to taste 3 of them excellent service; food - just good. And that’s not quite good enough for 2 Michelin stars.

The Ledbury was our very first outing to a Michelin starred restaurant some 10 years ago, which started our passion for good food, so it was great to return. Pleasantly not much has changed; outstanding service, like meeting old friends, and quality of dishes made even more special by the personable and knowledgeable sommelier. Would happily have given the Ledbury a full sheet of 5 stars if it wasn't for the White Beetroot, Baked in Clay, Caviar Salt and Smoked Eel which we found hard to stomach. Not the fault of the restaurant, just us not caring for very strong fish tastes. Let's hope it's not another 10 years before we get back.
