French
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.

    Wonderful and efficient service. In the middle of our tasting menu, we realized we had a dietary restriction that we forgot to disclose. We offered to simply skip the course as it’s our fault we ordered something we couldn’t eat - but the staff was remarkable, making substitutions at the last minute to accommodate us with grace and kindness. Unparalleled service. Exceptional taste and presentation.

    It was a wonderful experience. We have been admirers of Michel Roux for many years and I, an enthusiastic amateur cook, have several of his books and have tried some of his recipes. My husband and I flew from South America to London for our 40th anniversary and without hesitation decided that Le Gavroche had to be the venue for our celebration. The evening even surpassed our expectations. Delicious and creative food, extremely friendly and fun staff and a lovely setting made our evening unforgettable. Our only regret is not having taken a picture with our favorite chef. We will have to come back!

The welcome, the service , the food and the helpfulness of the sommelier all under the personal easy direction of Michel Roux Jr made most memorable evening. It made our special celebration very special indeed. Thanks to all.

    Yes it’s expensive, very expensive, but the menu exceptionelle coupled with the wine flight is an exceptional experience. Very knowledgeable and attentive staff but never over-bearing. There wasn’t a best dish in the menu we had, everything was superb in its own way. Michel greeted us at our table which was nice. Would certainly recommend if you had something worth while to celebrate.

    We had to be at a show at 8pm so chose to eat at 5pm. It was as if we had our own private restaurant! It was so fantastic! The waiters were constantly anticipating our needs. The food was devine! We did the tasting menu and unlike other tasting menus I’ve done before, the portions were very generous! I don’t want to give too much away as there were lots of little surprises and treats we weren’t expecting and made it all the more special. Would highly recommend!

    This is the third time we’ve eaten in Le Gavroche and it doesn’t disappoint. The decor, service, friendliness of staff, knowledge of the staff and how helpful they are, outstanding food and to see chef again just puts the Cherry on the cake. Special mention to Remi the sommelier for his help and advice on choosing a delicious wine.

    A memorable evening - every part was outstanding. Our 3 course meal was outstanding - cheese soufflé was melt in the mouth followed by lamb cutlets which were exquisite and accompanied by the tastiest vegetables I have even eaten. The cheese course that followed was possibly the best cheese trolley I have ever seen which was supported by a very knowledgeable lady who advised us on what cheeses to eat. This was washed down by a superb bottle of Morgan. The staff who waited on the table were extremely professional and slick in their attendance. A special mention for Freddie our wine waiter - his charm and outstanding wit were very much appreciated. An outstanding evening!

    All dietary concerns dealt with effectively and service is wonderful but after attending for 6 years every Jan we felt the menu has become a little static - although some items like the double cooked soufflé should never be removed as to do so would be a crime against humanity. The food is still superbly presented and beautifully cooked but a change up in the petit fours would be nice and the sugared brioche could have done with a little more moisture that wasn’t a rich caramel sauce as it was a little dry by itself. I’m nit picking though, it’s still a delight to visit but perhaps our yearly pilgrimage may stop now and move elsewhere. I realise this could be quite unfair as I’m sure it probably does change and is tweaked but it’s just the feeling we had at the end of a lovely meal. Maybe as it was venison again for me for the 3/4th time in a row there, I don’t know but it was my wife who commented that much as she adores our yearly start to the New Year tradition, her whisky sour and the food she’d like to go somewhere else as it has just lost something - maybe it was just having the same petit fours at the end of the meal as always that left us feeling like that. Service was fantastic as always and please add the mushroom arancini as a starter option. It came as part of the amuse bouche and was the star of the entire 4 courses. One actual complaint - for about 10 minutes there was a sewer smell coming from the toilets, which coincided with the arrival of dessert. Not the best combination to smell together. Thankfully the lingering traces were overpowered when the hot coffee arrived and it dispersed them.

    The atmosphere was amazing and relaxed. All the staff were very attentive and friendly from the moment we walked in. We were made to feel very welcome. It was a pleasure to meet the chef himself as well. Because we were on our honeymoon we had a little surprise with our dessert. The food was delicious. Cleared plates with every course. Thank you everyone there for making it a special meal.

    Early dinner for our wedding anniversary. Friendly and attentive staff from the outset. Nice ambience with tables set apart although felt a little dark. The signature cheese soufflé was delicious and light but the cream felt a little thin. Venison was excellent. Turbot was well cooked however the mushroom sauce felt too rich. Passion fruit soufflé with white chocolate ice cream was absolutely delicious and presented with a candle

    The service was mainly outstanding. Knowledgeable and friendly. But - The head waiter/ maitre’d was a little aloof. The junior wine steward didn’t listen quite well enough…(question about differences within the Chablis on offer resulted in a speech about what Chablis is in general). But otherwise good and helpful. I would like to see an offer of wines by the glass with each dish. The menu was difficult to read in the low light. Especially the wines noted in grey underneath menu items. But all in all a brilliant reminder of how great this restaurant is. We were frequent visitors years ago before an overseas move.

    We originally came here for a friend’s 50th and were blown away by the quality of the food, service and ambience. Always wanted to come back to see if we imagined it! So we had the opportunity to bring friends as a wedding present to them and it didn’t disappoint. The food was amazing, the service is fabulous, it’s classy but unpretentious - we felt special. It’s pricey but as a special treat every once in a while, it’s certainly worth it.
