The moment we arrived we felt very welcomed and experienced exceptional service, the food was sublime. Such a shame we don’t live in London, we travelled from Australia to dine here and the restaurant exceeded our expectations so thank you “The Ledbury”.

Was great!
My wife doesn’t take any alcohol, too many flavours on desserts, I should have told the restaurant before.
We definitely go back again.

Thanks

Impeccable in every course and the best services in London. Not over the top like some 2 star restaurants. Very relaxed atmosphere and the food is out of this world. I don’t drink but the sommelier was excellent talking through the wines for my table.

Magnificent. The best restaurant in London. We were celebrating our marriage with friends from Australia and it was made extra special and memorable with a tour of the kitchen and playing up a dish.

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.

We were a party of four and our experience of dining at The Ledbury for lunch was absolutely wonderful.
We all decided to have the 6 course menu ( and thank goodness we did not have the eight course) as we were more than satisfyingly full. Every mouthful had sensational taste and was visually beautiful. The waiter who served us ( and forgive my poor memory of his name) was professional yet friendly and highly informative of questions we had about the never ending delicious food.
We loved the atmosphere which was attractive and yet relaxed and will definitely be back.

Six friends, table is close to the door. The biggest thing to complain is the dim light. Service is great, appetizers are not to our taste, the following main course is good except the oyster, the sauce with oyster is weird.
Overall, the experience is great, 8courses for 150GBP

Amazing experience for our last meal out before Christmas. The service was impeccable, with all staff knowledgeable about the food being served. Vicktor was particularly welcoming. Portion sizes were good for a tasting menu and wines were well picked to go with the food. Highly recommend as a special occasion restaurant.

Sublime, unbelievable food served by the most professional, friendly and welcoming staff! Most restaurants in this category offer excellent food, but this was a cut above. Imaginative and interesting the whole way through, it was also perfectly portioned such that we did not feel bloated at any point. I never thought I would be waxlyrical about a mushroom... But, for us, the ambiance imparted by the staff really set this place apart. If you want a quiet romantic meal, they will no doubt detect this and oblige accordingly. However, if want a more interactive experience, they are fully willing to oblige. We had the pleasure to be hosted by Jack and his excellent team, who all imparted their knowledge with both passion and humour. We cannot wait to go back, using any special occasion as an excuse!

I was visiting the ledbury with my boyfriend Jacob the 5. Of December - we come from Copenhagen. Visiting the ledbury was such a magic experience, and lived up to everything we was promised by friends and more. Thank you for an amazing tasting menu and service. It would not have been the same without Darren and the service that afternoon. Darren made it a very special experience, and we will be back again in the new year. Thank you for the best food experience.

An amazing birthday experience. From the moment you enter the restaurant till the end it feels like home. Warm and happy smiles, spotless service and the food....every dish has a story and surprise on your mouth. We had the tasting menu and it was worthy. The combination of colours and flavours was fantastic. If you want to celebrate a special occasion or even to have a quiet and lovely lunch you should go.

This is the best all round restaurant experience we’ve had yet. The food at El Bulli was more cutting edge, yet this is better than any other 3 star Michelin experience, primarily because, unlike most 2 and 3 star experiences, it’s not trying too hard, yet it’s near perfection. A lot of 2 stars disappoint. But this doesn’t. The vegetarian tasting menu was sublime. The service is there when you need it and not when you don’t. The sommelier is great and it’s not full of braying, offensive new money yaboos. It’s just right. Everything is just right. Thanks to all at the Ledbury.

Best food I’ve had in London - amazing tasting menu, which was perfectly matched with a fantastic group of wines.

Very attentive, but never intrusive staff, and a lovely dining room which was lively but not overly noisy.

They make a good martini, too.

First 2 stars restaurant that I have tried. Met my expectation and hit top score on all front!

Service was warm and friendly. Cosy environment, felt I was in a 5 star luxury hotel. And the food... just amazing. Delicious, full of fresh seasonal ingredients cooked perfectly. Every item on every dish was put together to lift the taste of the plates to a greater level. I applaud for the attention to detail in every aspect. My wife and I had a wonderful experience and definitely one to recommend for a special occasion!

Food as always was great - but at £130 pp for lunch it’s not exceptional enough. Either they need to take more risk or revert to their £49 weekend set lunch price point

Shame - used to be my favourite
