“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.

“If you have the money, the great indulgence of wines that are rarely served by the glass” (“where else can you buy a £500 bottle of wine in a 250ml measure”) can be satiated at this London outpost of the famous Parisian venue, which occupies a converted banking hall behind Oxford Street’s John Lewis – a dignified space, but one whose “small tables” make it feel more like a brasserie than a fine-dining destination. Arguably, “the wonderful wine list has put the food unfairly in the shadows”, as some of the “modern French-style dishes show great skill”, but – that said – while “the set lunch is excellent value, other prices seem to have crept up of late”.

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.

A wonderful corner venue on Cavendish Squa...
Reviewed 5 months, 12 days ago

"A wonderful corner venue on Cavendish Square that used to be a Coutts Private Bank. Real character and interest in the venue but also a wonderful ambience as despite the high ceilings and “big architectural tropes” the restaurant is welcoming and comfortable. The food was outstanding; imaginative, different and delicate. The wine pairings were eye-opening and informative. The only disappointment was the service, particularly for such a high-end restaurant. One wine pairing was delivered and introduced but the paired course never came - it had somehow been forgotten. And so we had to chase for it twice and finally ate it without any wine; as the glasses had long since been drunk. Several times we had to try hard to catch a waiter. And when we left reception forgot to give us the bags that were on the ticket and we had to go back later in the week to make a special journey to pick them up. "
