Harden's survey result
“OTT-opulent decor, with a ‘push for champagne’ button in each booth” have carved a big name for Leonid Shutov’s fantastical Soho haunt, whose “high novelty factor” is extremely romantic (“you just have to take a date”). When it comes to Eric Chavot’s menu of luxurious classics (“amazing beef Wellington” for example) results undisputedly taste “very nice”, but the food is “expensive for what it is, and you get more adventurous cooking at the same price-bracket elsewhere”.
“Who doesn’t love a button by the table that is exclusively for ordering Champagne?” And the “matchless”, fantasy-plush interior of Leonid Shutov’s lavish Soho ‘diner’ creates a “gorgeous” setting, especially “for a fun date”. Eric Chavot’s menu of “luxury staples” delivers some “pretty good food”, and – while the fact that it’s certainly “not a bargain” is a sticking point for a few reporters – most “don’t begrudge a penny”.
“Everyone is dazzled by the exotic boothed interior and the press-for-champagne buttons”, when visiting this lavish Russian-owned diner in Soho, which is “super for impressing your guest”. Sceptics say its comfort food is “poor for the price”, but a number of reporters note that it’s “miles better than it was” under chef Anna Haugh (appointed in late 2016).
“An emergency champagne button.... what more can you ask for!?” – Leonid Shutov’s splendidly “OTT” Soho venue, with its conspiratorial and “romantic” booths, provides a “gorgeous setting for a fun night out” or “enjoyable brunch”. Critics fear its “comfort” food is “expensive and ordinary”, but most reporters feel it’s “very enjoyable”.
Bob Bob Ricard Restaurant Diner Reviews
""Over The Top" decor makes this a fun venue. Booths available for most people. Food tends towards the "comfort" end of cooking."
"Always a fun ( if expensive) night out. The food is not exciting but well done."
"Went to Bob Bob with high expectations and came away feeling Robbed Robbed! The food was uneventful, bland at best and rather poorly presented. The only interesting factor was the bell to press for champagne and after a few of those the novelty wears off. It's only saving grace was the decor and ambience."
