Wonderful evening at the Ledbury. The service was exceptional and the food was well presented and delicious.
The wine sommelier was informative and presented a good range of wines.

Very dissapointed about the food. Expected so much more from a 2 star michelin resturant. None of the dishes were exellent, and some vere even so undelicious that we wouldnt finish them. Spent so much money on a bad experience, will not recomend anyone who loves gourmet food and fine dining to come here.

To echo the other reviews, just go, just get the tasting menu. It is obviously one of the most expensive dinners in London but it’s also the best. My partner is a vegetarian and was equally complimentary about the vegetarian tasting menu.

For people like us, the Ledbury is a special occasion destination and the occasion of my good friend from the US visiting was the ideal time to go the Ledbury. Things got off to an excellent start when happened upon Brett Graham himself in the garden at the front of the restaurant as we passed by before they opened. We chatted to him for about ten minutes about his philosophy on farming and ingredient sourcing. His passion and commitment to a balanced, environmentally concerned approach was a delight to see. When we dined the food and wine were excellent, but as we are self-styled foodies our standards are very high; on this occasion, some dishes (e.g. the Langoustines) were world class, other dishes although very good didn't hit the highest peak, hence four stars. The room is good, well laid out and acoustically balanced. THE TOP HIGHLIGHT - was the service. Wait staff, and in particular the sommelier, were first class in every way at all times. Great night. Thanks.

Definitely an enjoyable experience. The Ledbury deserves the Michelin two stared rated. All the decorations in the restaurant make me delighted, the dished taste good, some of them are very impressive. Also, the services are just right for me. Highly recommend this restaurant to everyone and I believe it worth my revisit.

We went here for my birthday as a treat before the arrival of our first baby. I had emailed the Ledbury before our arrival to let them know about my wife being pregnant and her food allergies. When we arrived these were played back to us when we were seated without having to remind anyone. As we were there on a Friday we had the tasting menu which any of the dishes that contained something my wife couldn't eat were changed with suggestions from Darren with no issues. I had food envy with some of the items they swapped out and they upheld the same quality regardless. The overall experience and quality of food and service is something we will not forget. I would highly recommend the Ledbury to anyone.

The service was very good and so was the food, all just lacked a bit of “passion”. The servers performed their job well, and with the exception of the lady serving the cheese, they lacked any passion towards what they’re serving. The food was good but there was no wow-factor with anything.
