I found the food mediocre at best, certainly not close to French quality or standards. Wine was good. Waiter was nice and helpful but kept interrupting us unnecessarily.
Venue looks old and not well kept, and it smells like it. First and only time I went and I wouldn't recommend it due to food safety concerns.
At the end of our meal we spotted mice just by the table behind us where customers had just left. We immediately got up to go pay and leave. We informed the staff and manager of what had happened. They apologised saying that this is London and that's how it is in basements in London but they make sure food stay protected. No concern at all about the other customers sitting there unaware. We didn't want to make a fuss so paid and run for the hills.
This West end stalwart is quite simply superbe! I took my parents who are total Francophiles & I don't think they'll eat anywhere else after our wonderful evening. Our French waitress from Bordeaux was utterly charming. She easily talked us in to the most delicious champagne cocktail aperitif I have ever tasted. The food was délicieux but it was the service that elevated this from a good to a great dining experience, merci!
What a gem! The food was excellent – I had French onion soup and steak and frites; perfectly executed and full of flavour. And best of all - the downstairs area is atmospheric, candle lit and cavernous; great for a romantic, intimate dinner… Highly recommended.
