Went for my wife's bday with friends. Was our 1st time. Excellent service and food. Great wine list although the 1st bottle we ordered (white) hadn't been chilled before and as such the 1st glass or two were not at ideal temperature. Not a deal breaker but was a bit surprised. That being said, would recommend and come again.

Where to start....simply put: the best meal of my and my new wife’s life. We’ve eaten at Per Se and Le Bernadin. This was better on every level.

The service was the best I’ve ever had. It was perfect execution but with personality, humor, charm, and class. It was 3 star service with a soul.

Special thanks to Jack, Lynn, and my fellow yank (Arizona) whose name escapes me at the moment.

Also to Chef Brett Graham for putting me to work and food beyond description. You and your people better get that third star or I’m going to find the Michelin Man and punch him in the jaw.

My favorite restaurant in the world.

Marvelous lunch! Started with tomatoes and crab, followed by cod, and the main course was the short rib. All were delicious, but the beef was extra special! Splendid strawberry tart for dessert. Highly recommended!

Truly such a wonderful dinner. Our meals were outstanding. This was especially so for my vegetarian dining companion who noted that nothing she ate seemed like an afterthought, or less-than the omnivore’s option - something she rarely experiences.

The service was impeccable - the staff seemed to anticipate our needs before we knew we had them. They slipped in and out like ninjas, without us noticing, to refill water glasses and remove empty plates.

Everything was professional without being gimmicky or unnecessarily theatrical.

Thanks for a lovely night!

Just the most magical evening. Seamless service, beautiful food (and wine), quiet and elegant ambiance. Perfect for my darling friend’s birthday - by the way, I didn’t mention it to the restaurant beforehand, and suddenly after our *second* dessert plate, out came a third for him inscribed with birthday wishes. I think they must have overheard us mentioning it - just one example of the wonderful service. Thank you!

The Ledbury exceeded expectations--the food was exceptional, as was the service. As one of London's best restaurants, you would think it might be pretentious and stuffy, but it was warm, friendly and thoroughly enjoyable. I cannot recommend this more highly.

Was visiting London and was recommend to try out this Michellin 2* restaurant. Tried out its set lunch, I think it’s value for money coming from a Michellin 2* restaurant, the dishes have great presentation and good food quality. The entre / finger good are great, but the other dishes lack the wow effect I was expecting from a 2* restaurant.

Service wise, we got plenty of attention as it has ample staffs. However the overall service is very robotic when compared to lesser restaurant such as Darwin Brasserie at Sky Garden.

After doing some thorough research I eventually narrowed down my graduation dinner to two places in London. The Clove Club and The Ledbury. I picked the Ledbury because of the more traditional style and because of what the chef was doing. Graham was trying to make traditional british cuisine the best it could be. And it did not dissapoint! After taking a trip to Cosme in New York earlier last year I can say that the taste was just as good if not better. (Of course, Cosme being mexican and the Ledbury being British it’s tough to make a comparison but you get my point). Each course was different, interesting, and delicious! Not to mention the service was incredible. Hands down the most helpful and knowledgeable staff I’ve ever had the privilege of speaking to. There was this (I believe Spanish?) man who helped my mother fully understand a dish by writing the ingredient down and SHOWING her the ingredient. He went back to the kitchen and brought her what they were cooking. It was very cool. The sommelier knew exactly what he was doing. The wines matched perfectly with every dish, not to mention like me he is a sucker for the story behind the wine too! Each one was different and delicious. I could go on and on about this place, and I may somewhere else, but for now, I cannot recommend this place more. Truly outstanding! Below is just a few of the many dishes we had.
