“If you love wine… heaven!” – a “huge list (almost 2,000 bins)”, “some with no mark-up from merchant prices” and including 110 available by the glass (hence the name), is the big attraction at this plush Cavendish Square venue from a famous Parisian operation. It “finally seems to have found its footing as a real restaurant, not just somewhere that serves food as an afterthought to the wine list – there’s some very good cooking here”.

Named for its “phenomenal wine list” – featuring 110 wines available by the glass using the Coravin wine storage system – this London outpost of a famous Parisian group offers a professional all-round formula, which also incorporates high-quality, modern French cuisine and “excellent service” (with particularly “superb sommelier knowledge”); all served in the “well-lit and welcoming” setting of a stylish dining room, looking onto Cavendish Square. On the downside, it can seem expensive; and “on a quiet night, atmosphere is lacking”.

“The clue is in the name – they really do offer 110 wines by the glass (au homage to the Coravin wine storage system) with a menu designed to pair with this vast selection”, at this spin-off from Paris’s famous Taillevent group, which occupies a smartly appointed dining room on Cavendish Square. The vintages themselves are carefully selected and this is one of the most interesting destinations for taking a wine-lover in town. Perhaps inevitably, it sometimes feels like the seasonal French cuisine “is playing catch-up with the wines”, but most reporters this year felt it “was rather good too!”

“You will never get bored, although you might get drunk!” at this London scion of Paris’s famous Taillevent group, where “you can try 110 different types of superb wine by the glass”. Set in “an attractive former private banking hall” – on the opposite side of Cavendish Square from the back of Oxford Street’s John Lewis – its “staff are extremely well-drilled and make everything effortless and smooth”. However, “the total cost of a meal takes it out of brasserie territory”, while the “seasonal French cuisine”, though “enjoyable”, doesn’t always seem in keeping with the level of ambition that the final bill might imply.

Owner's description

Our concept - 110 vins au verre. Because the aromas and flavours found in wine are eulogies to diversity, vintages contribute to new nuances of pleasure and because a gourmet meal offers a unique opportunity to explore them... for all these reasons Les 110 de Taillevent came to be. For the first time ever, a luxury brasserie created by an acclaimed French gastronomic institution is offering 110 wines by the glass (served in 2 measures of 12.5cl or 7cl), each glass associated with 30 seasonally-inspired "à la carte" dishes specially conceived to deliver unparalleled precision in the pairing of food and wine. To complement each dish, Pierre Bérot, "Mr Wine" at Le Taillevent in Paris, offers a choice of four wines in four price brackets, all expressing the aspects of a perfect match between wine and food. A real diversity of propositions made possible thanks to an innovative wine conservation system. From the fresh, envigorating citrus flavours of a New Zealand sauvignon, to the generous fruit of an Italian Barolo or the depths of the tobacco and cedar notes of fine Bordeaux, a lifetime is not long enough to explore all the flavours of the world's unique terrors. Les 110 de Taillevent London offers a unique opportunity to immerse you in thousands of wines from the prestigious Le Taillevent Cellars.

"Whilst the food is well executed it’s the extensive (and incredibly reasonably priced) wine list that makes this worth an occasional visit. "
