Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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).

Summary

“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”.

Summary

“Love the ‘press for champagne’ button on every table!” – this “wacky” Soho diner is “perfect for an intimate meal” or “girl’s lunch” thanks to its fun, boothed seating, “OTT” decor and “charming” service; on the downside, the cooking is no more than “high-end comfort food” and “prices are silly for what you get”. Top Menu Tip – “excellent beef Wellington”.

"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."
