OK, prices are “sky high”, but the “divine little morsels” on offer at the Parisian über-chef’s “very sleek” and “seductive” Theatreland outpost are a total “wow” for most reporters (especially at lunch, which is “tremendous value”); “sit at the bar, so you can see what’s going on in the open kitchen”.

"Exsquisite presentation. Staff professional yet informal at the same time. Chairs in the downstairs restaurant are a little uncomfortable for the elderly. Not cutting edge cuisine, althgough it delivered on the flavour front."

"The food has always been delicious and deserts very attractively presented. In the past the deserts had been presented within golden balls. Nowadays, they're more normal."

"Obviously you have to rate this restaurant by its price bracket - the food was undoubtedly very good, but for the price which exceeds better restaurants, it is just ok. Food was pretty good but overall experience was not worth the price. We had the 8 course tasting with wine pairings. The meal started beautifully with the amuse bouche, caviar dish and lobster with ginger broth being particular stand out dishes. However the food was generally a bit rich for an 8 course tasting and the main course was very oversalted, to the point that it was inedible. Service was friendly but waiting staff changed too much for any continuity, and often our water glass was not refilled. This was especially irksome when we had wine pairings where we were poured tiny glasses, meaning that we went thirsty between courses (without even water to drink), and even for an entire course which apparently did not have a wine pairing. Considering the wine pairings are £70 a head which is the same as 2 very good bottles of wine between the 2 of us, I felt that we were being ripped off – we never had this at the ledbury or other similar restaurants. When I compare the experience at the ledbury with dinner here it is night and day. Being offered a small box of petit fours for the oversalted dish was also a bit lame."
