Celebrated French chef Claude Bosi launched Claude Bosi at Bibendum back in 2017, with a ground-floor seafood and oyster bar and first-floor restaurant which is ‘unashamedly fine dining’, with the chef's signature contemporary and light-hearted flair.

The a la carte menu features some of his signature classics and the chef’s Michelin-starred alma matter, with ingredients sourced predominantly from the British Isles and France. The striking upstairs dining room with its dramatic and iconic floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows has been redesigned to house a larger central open kitchen. The light and airy dining room will feature the original Conran chairs with a soft colour palate of muted blues.

    We had an excellent evening at Bibendum. We chose the 5-course set menu and enjoyed several elements of it. The Bibendum Egg was excellent as also the rabbit. The artichoke ice cream as dessert was totally unexpected! Never tasted it before. The service was highly professional with top class waitresses and sommeliers. I like the fact that Claude Bosi made a brief appearance - a nice touch as one often wonders if these top chefs are actually involved in the day-to-day management of the cuisine, or just give their names to the restaurant and delegate responsibility. Finally, genuinely impressed to find the 'Passito di Pantelleria' but probably should not be surprised due to the humungous wine list!

    Originally, we tried to book the oyster bar from their website, and it redirect us to “Open Table” app. Not sure if its a bug on their webpage link, it direct me to book a table for the restaurant. I told the waitress that we actually want to visit the seafood bar, but she told us we will need to pay 125 pounds cancellation fee in this case, and she also said that when their staff call me for confirmation I should have inform them, but i did not know the first floor restaurant is not the seafood bar. Anyway lots of options on the menu comes with a supplement charge, all the food was too salty, the bill was 536 pounds for 2 person for lunch, no wine, no petit fours was served. General service was good. But they did not bother to write my name on the anniversary card :p and the gift bag was just the menu of our lunch 😅

    I felt like the chef was intent on showing off his skill and imagination, rather than providing a balanced and memorable dining experience. Too much busy-ness, not enough focus. And the hare, as part of the tasting menu, was completely over the top. Each one of the three hare courses was enough by itself to stand as a main course, and taken together, this was no "tasting menu" -- it was a matter of "gorgint the customer." Far too much food. Wasteful. Excessive. Inappropriate. Disappointing.

    Everything at Bibendum was perfect. Every element of every part of every course of the 7 course tasting menu was incredible. Really interesting pairings which worked well and were delicious and the service was understated and very knowledgeable. It is hard to identify the stand out dishes as it was all so well done but the signature Bibendum egg with many layers of different ingredients and the trio of amuse bouche including the foie gras ice cream (which we first had in Hibiscus, Bosi’s first restaurant in Ludlow) were the most surprising and complex. It was all a riot of flavour with so many different elements - the rabbit with langoustine was really good and also the monkfish cheek encased in pastry which came with the monkfish blew my mind because it tasted like pork.  The dessert also amazed us: Jerusalem artichoke icecream, served in a candied artichoke skin along with Jerusalem artichoke tart topped with sweet buckwheat. I wasn’t sure about several ingredients or pairings on the menu but I went with it, secure in the knowledge that the chef had mastered it and it was absolutely wonderful. Claude Bosi was in the kitchen and we saw him as the silent doors opened and closed throughout the evening. Utterly sublime. Thoroughly recommended.

    We tried to book the Oyster Bar but somehow ended up with the main restaurant. Staff were lovely. Food was not to our liking and a very restricted menu. It rather seemed as though we were supposed to worship their greatness rather than actually consider the food. Frankly a poor experience. Except for some lovely staff who seemed to realise the facade

    Went for the set lunch with half bottle of wine per person. The Bibendum building is lovely and the staff very attentive. All food was exquisitely presented. A Pre starter cake was dry. The beetroot starter was good but the winkles had texture but no taste and the foie gras in a pasta parcel had little taste. Main course game pie was excellent but the rabbit with £25 supplement and one medium sized langoustine again underwhelmed. The mango dessert was very tasty. This chef appears to value presentation and neatness over taste as with the sensationally butchered tiny cuts of rabbit, perfectly tender but with hardly any smell or taste of rabbit.

    I visited Claude Bosi in November 2021 and May 2022 and was very satisfied. On both occasions I had the lunch menu but instead of the optional half bottle of wine I had wine by the glass to allow for different options. It was explained to me that the price of the half bottle would be deducted from the price when it was not wanted as part of the package. This time I was charged the full price including half a bottle of wine I did not have and was not even offered. Total bill of £300,- for three courses and three glasses of wine. I made a query and it was explained this was a new pricing policy. This is not apparent on the web-site. I do not mind paying for an expensive meal as long as it is exquisite but I do mind paying for something I am not having and am not even offered. This time will thus be the last time.

    For exclusive luxury dining this is the place to go. You will feel special and appreciated all night long. The staff are lovely, funny and attentive at all times. They are part of and extremly knowledgable about the art coming from the kitchen. We had the best seating in the house, and could follow the many chefs as they created these many fantastically beautiful and tasteful dishes. The whole experience was magical.

    We had a wonderful time - 4 hours of exceptional food being brought for our delectation! The service is perfect/ unobtrusive but diligent and not at all stuffy. The building is fabulous and o loved the extra touches of Michelin man butter dishes, salt and pepper etc and even decorated the perfect chocolate soufflé. I loved every minute and wish we could afford to do it more often!

    We chose the Taste of Season menu (November 2022). Every dish was delicious and flavourful. In more than one occasion, I was surprised by the tasting experience, as I was expecting it to be different. Everything from the crockley to the presentation, and delivery of the dishes were clearly very well planned by the chef. It was a very enjoyable experience.

    Very disappointing. Numerous and for the most part overly salty amuse bouche. Prawn starter unpleasant, raw prawns drowned in what my dining companion described as 'tasteless mucous' together with deep fried prawn heads that would ordinarily not be consumed. Very well executed deer main but again overly salted. Mushroom desert interesting and well executed but not to our taste. Went to the bother of selecting 3 wines from the wine list online to save spending time trying to read the voluminous wine list at the table only to not be able to find any of them and be told by the sommelier the wine list online is very out of date. Payment took around 20 minutes, three failed attempts and two members of staff to finally go through as payment machine not working. The background music was truly appalling unless you like transient pop music from the 80s like '99 Red Balloons'. Stunning location and very pleasant service but given the above definitely not worthy of the price point, so so many better locations in London to enjoy fine dining. Overall would not recommend and will not be returning.
