Holder of two Michelin stars and, more importantly, winner of the OpenTable Best Food award, Michel Roux Jr’s Le Gavroche is among London’s most well loved restaurants. An unimposing doorway in the heart of Mayfair leads in to a temple of gastronomy. Whet your palate with an aperitif in the cosy bar with its country house atmosphere before moving in to the classically designed main restaurant where crisp white linen meets heritage paint colours and tasteful artwork. There may be a dress code here but Le Gavroche is nonetheless unpretentious and comfortable – sink in to a comfortable chair and be spoilt for choice by some of the finest French food the UK has to offer and the pick of a 60,000 bottle wine cellar.

    We arrived for our 2045hrs booking and were informed our table was not ready….we were seated at the bar where a charming man made conversation and outlined our drinks options for the evening. After quite some time (easily 20 minutes, maybe more) we were shown to our table. Sadly the temperature for my wife, in a dress, was too cold. She moved seat on our table, which resulted in a waitress asking as to why. My wife explained that a large number of people in the restaurant were wearing their coats and that she too was feeling extremely cold and she had been sat directly under an air con vent, the waitress expressed concern and a desire to help but nothing was done. When at the end of the evening I had had quite enough and relayed the dissatisfaction of my wife and I to the lady in charge she merely looked on in dumbfounded disbelief that she was not receiving the usual accolades drenched upon her…no apology or request to resolve or address the issue was received or presented, she simply retreated out of sight. Having previously dined at the Riverside Inn we had great expectations of the London brand but were sadly very disappointed.

    Well, last night I had the absolute privilege of dining at ‘Le Gavroche’ in London. This was a long held dream of mine which eventually came true! The Menu Exceptionnel was seven carefully created courses, beautifully presented and AMAZINGLY delicious food. Classic French dishes in a wonderful 2 ⭐️⭐️Michelin Restaurant was the perfect evening ! Executive Chef Rachel and her brigade were absolutely outstanding, and the front of house were the absolute pinnacle of fine-dining service….special mentions go to Sweety and Debora for doing a great job and giving us such a special evening xx

    Visit here has been on our bucket list for many years. Restaurant was about half full. Interior of premises on lower ground floor in need of updating. Service was patchy & rushed. We had tasting menu & asked for one course to be substituted. There were issues with each course & substituted fish we had from a la carte menu instead of meat main was full of bones & served with very strange tasting sauce. Was this bad luck on our part or is restaurant trading on its past reputation? Very disappointing as we expected better

    Very good food ( menu exceptionale) and wine ( avoided wine pairing), but took sommelier’s advice on bottle or white & red. Very good choice of Burgundy wines. Not the best ambiance, as it is a bit claustrophobic in basement. Very attentive staff. Very good experience

    We have been to Le Gavroche 7 or 8 times over the years. It is out favourite restaurant bar none. However last night the food was very disappointing when we went for our 40th wedding anniversary. We had the menu exceptionel and of the 7 courses 4 were underwhelming to say the least. Very disappointing considering the usually excellent standards.

    Le Gavroche stands out on many levels, service , classical ambience and quality of ingredients and execution of cooking. However for seasoned diners who have traveled enough, Le Gavroche May feel stuck in time where similar establishments have lightened up the decor and the food. Some standout dishes were the crab salad, cheese soufflé (though I wonder how a regular portion would feel like in one’s stomach vs. the appetiser portion I had), the Lo water was really the highlight of the entire meal. The succulent meat was complemented with this gorgeous roasted seafood scent . The veal was dry but the peas in the veal dish stood out with its sweetness and creaminess. Worth a visit once, difficult to make a second visit unless the establishment takes itself forward with concept, decor and menu.

    Been wanting to come here for some time.. Reserved 3 months ago and the plan worked.. Had the menu exeptionelle and enjoyed a 7 course taste of amazing food... Found it to be good quality food with a deep understanding of flavors and textures. It is not over the top fancy and gimmicky but good food that is steeped in history and it was the perfect interpretation of French cuisine..

    The food and the wine pairing were excellent, we enjoyed our meal very much. The wine we choose was the least expensive, but outstanding. The food was amazing. The sommelier was very professional and helpful, worth mentioning. What we didn’t enjoy was that we felt very rushed. We got the starters while our champagne was barely touched, and the waiters, male and female, were watching us in order to clear the table for the next course. And this went on and on. The restaurant can do better !

    After many years it was lovely to return. Once seated, we looked around the room wondering where we had sat on our first visit. We pointed to a table and moments later Suresh came to welcome us back. I challenged him that it must be too long to remember us but he said no and pointed to the table we had occupied many years ago. The exact same one the we had initially thought! Amazing!

    Our initial impressions could not have been better. The welcome was warm, the food was exceptional, especially the cheese soufflé and the lamb cutlets, and it was a pleasure to see Michel Roux working his way around the tables. For the first hour, service was friendly and relaxed. Then, almost imperceptibly, things became frenetic giving the distinct impression that the restaurant wanted its table back to accommodate other diners. As it happened, another table was vacated and a new set of diners were seated there. The pace of our meal then returned to relaxed. In a restaurant of such quality and commensurate expense, feeling rushed was unwelcome. I really wanted to love Le Gavroche.

    An experience from start to finish the food was amazing the staff were so attentive a warm welcome as soon as you step into Le Gavroche we were welcomed by one of the managers, we were looked after by Sweetie a young Mauritian lady who made us feel comfortable welcomed and made sure our visit was one to remember her knowledge of the menu her descriptions of what was put in front of us not only looked like a piece of art but tasted amazing and she explained everything about the food ! The visit was also made special by the sommelier who described every wine that accompanied the taster menu his knowledge and descriptions of each wine it’s taste and bouquet on the nose was a pleasure, a great evening of food and wine for my wife’s birthday made even more special by the people looking after us. I can highly recommend this restaurant as a perfect venue for any special occasion or just a night out .
