French Restaurants in Westminster
1. Relais de Venise L’Entrecôte French restaurant in Westminster 50 Dean St - W1D
“Bish, bash, bosh… great steak!” – “amazing result!”. “You know what you’re going to get”, and “what you’re given is very good” at this Gallic steakhouse chain which “does what it says on the tin” – a “no-decision” menu of steak-frites, served with the chain’s trademark ‘secret sauce’, plus seconds if you’re still hungry (followed by a variety of puddings). “They’re busy, so be prepared to queue, and to vacate your table as soon as you’ve finished.”
2. Café Monico French restaurant in Westminster 39-45 Shaftesbury Avenue - W1
This would-be-instant-classic Theatreland brasserie – artfully designed by the Soho House group using the name of an 1877 original – “could be great for its location”, right amongst the bright lights of Shaftesbury Avenue, and has a fine interior. But the food falls very short – which is “a real shame”: the menu of French and Italian classics “promises so much” but too often “delivers nothing!”; and, for somewhere so central, the venue inspires remarkably little feedback.
3. Folie French restaurant in Westminster 37 Golden Square - W1F
Frenchman Guillaume Depoix has taken over a corner site in Golden Square (previously a PizzaExpress), with a view to opening ‘the perfect Soho brasserie’ in November 2019 (a brave post-Brexit move, we think). He has extensive front-of-house experience, with four years in London under his belt, plus Alain Ducasse’s Plaza Athénée.
4. Les Platanes French restaurant in Westminster 26-28 Bruton Place - W1J
In a Mayfair townhouse that was formerly the short-lived Babel House (RIP), this ‘contemporary bistro de luxe’ features a southern French menu from chef Thierry Laborde, and opened in mid-2019, too late for any survey feedback. In his early review, The Evening Standard’s David Sexton focused on its handsome design, variably realised and expensive cuisine, impressive wine list and bargain set lunch (£25 with wine).
5. Moncks of Dover Street French restaurant in Westminster 33 Dover Street - W1S
An all-day brasserie-concept from luxury Mayfair restaurant Park Chinois: the 92-cover venue launched in July 2019, with chef Gennaro Vitto, who was previously a pastry chef at Park Chinois, at the stoves.
