French Restaurants in Marylebone
1. Blandford Comptoir Mediterranean restaurant in Marylebone 1 Blandford Street - W1
As befits a well-known wine expert, Xavier Rousset’s “buzzy” Marylebone bar has a “superbly curated selection of vintages by the glass”, but also “excellent”, straightforward Mediterranean (primarily Italian) cooking. Top Tip: “very good value set lunch for £20”.
2. Les 110 de Taillevent French restaurant in Marylebone 16 Cavendish Square - W1
“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”.
3. The Wallace, The Wallace Collection French restaurant in Marylebone Hertford Hs, Manchester Sq - W1
The beautiful glass-ceilinged atrium of the Wallace Collection museum in Marylebone provides the “perfect atmosphere for tea – very civilised and respectable”. “The café’s food (from caterer Peyton & Byrne) is hit and miss, service not brilliant but the space is really impressive”. “Always does the trick for a business meeting – so much better than sitting in a coffee shop”.
4. Clarette French restaurant in Marylebone 44 Blandford St - W1U
This year-old Marylebone wine bar, owned in part by a scion of the family who own Château Margaux, has yet to win a huge fan base amongst reporters – those who have discovered it however award high ratings to its wine list and its menu of Mediterranean small plates.
5. Orrery French restaurant in Marylebone 55 Marylebone High St - W1
D&D London’s “pleasant light room above the Conran shop in Marylebone” has a “fantastic airy atmosphere” with attractive views, and its ambience is only limited by its “slightly corridor-like” proportions. “Dining on the roof terrace in the summer is an added bonus” too, and as a business venue it can be ideal. Fans say its Gallic cuisine is “first rate” too, although overall ratings are more middling, perhaps because it’s “priced accordingly”.
6. Le Relais de Venise L’Entrecôte Steaks & grills restaurant in Marylebone 120 Marylebone Ln - W1
“The simplest menu” – the only items are “great steak-frites” accompanied by their “legendary secret sauce” (though you do get a choice of dessert) – makes for a “winning formula” at the three London branches of this international French-based chain. “If steak and chips tick your boxes, this will too!”. “Time it wrong, and you’ll have to queue”.
