* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“So delicate, so refined and so delicious” – the “elegant” cuisine at Gordon Ramsay’s luxurious Belgravian has proved commendably consistent over the years, and its “wine offering has something to tempt even those most well-trained palates”. Thus, it remains one of the brighter spots in GR’s ever-more middling restaurant empire. On the downside, although the room itself is “swanky – with a huge wine cage in the centre of the space” – its atmosphere can fail to ignite. And then of course there’s the “ridiculous bill”. For most folks, though? “First class!”

“An impressive wine vault in the middle of the dining room” provides a talking-point at Gordon Ramsay’s “beautiful” and “romantic” (luxuriously anodyne) Belgravian, whose capacious wine list is one of its defining features. Russell Bateman joined as chef in mid-2018, and, according to most reports, his “fabulous” modern cuisine “ticks every box” to contribute to a “fabulous all-round experience”. Ratings slid here a bit this year, though, due to concerns about value: “it’s good, but so painful on the wallet”.

With its “stunning” cuisine, “wine list that reads like War & Peace”, “caring and attentive” staff and “beautiful” interior (arranged around a glass-walled wine vault), this luxurious Knightsbridge dining room is the only restaurant in Gordon Ramsay’s stable that lives up to his name nowadays, and on practically all reports is “a joy to visit”. Let’s hope new chef Russell Bateman, who joined in summer 2018, can keep up the good work.

Reviewed 7 months, 22 days ago

"Food and service were both excellent. Lots of charm in both. Very difficult to pick a standout dish on the tasting menu as they were all so good. We also appreciated their flexibility on the wine pairing. But the room...as a couple out for dinner it felt like we were not the target market. The room, with the god awful spotlights and drab colour scheme, felt like a throwback dinner in the City. Why is it so brightly, and badly, lit? It diminishes the impact of the central red wine cellar. On a wintry night the room did not feel intimate or cosy on one end of the spectrum, or grand on the other. The food and service are being badly let down by an ugly and dated room."
