Harden's survey result
“Smooth-running and elegant” – the recently-adopted, more modern and svelte style of operation (no tablecloths, and a new central bar for counter-style dining) is suiting this Roux-branded dining room: part of a luxurious five-star hotel, opposite Broadcasting House. Despite the harder-edged look, the ambience remains “delightful” and the cuisine is “first class”, with the option of eating à la carte, or from the six-course tasting menu. “Spot-on service”, in particular, featured in numerous reports this year.
“All round 10/10!” – The re-launched Roux-branded operation in this “elegant” and “beautiful” dining room, a stone’s throw from Broadcasting House, jumped up several gears this year, as a lift in ratings coincided with its February 2018 re-launch in a new more “relaxed and simple” guise, incorporating a new, central dining counter and adopting a luxurious, ‘no-tablecloths’ style. “Not one thing is amiss” when it comes to the “exceptional” modern French cuisine (which now takes a more ingredient-led approach), service is exemplary, and the overall experience is “one of pure indulgence” (especially for a romantic occasion).
Fans of the Roux’s management of this “calm and elegant” chamber truly adore its “quiet” and “romantic” style, while also praising its “polite and seriously attentive service” and “superb French cuisine”. Its ratings have waned in the last couple of years however, as a small but vociferous minority give it flak for “unadventurous” food they consider “average for the price”.
“The room will make your date swoon”, at this “oasis”, over the road from Broadcasting House, whose spaciousness and serenity also mark it out as being “great for a business lunch”. “Classic cuisine is beautifully presented, and immaculately served”.
