Galvin La Chapelle
Time Out says
Brother Jeff’s special slice of the Galvin siblings’ pie, La Chapelle is an awe-inspiring architectural behemoth with ecclesiastical overtones and a menu of impressively rendered modern French cuisine. The signature lasagne of Dorset crab with beurre nantais sounds too good to refuse, as does the beef sirloin with braised oxtail, pommes Anna and morels – although dessert fans should also prepare themselves for delectable confections such as tarte Tatin with Normandy crème fraîche or mint chocolate crémeux with lime and crème de menthe ice cream. If money’s no option, also splash out on a bottle of Hermitage La Chapelle from the prestigious Francophile wine list. Service is as smooth as the silkiest béarnaise sauce – as you’d expect from a Michelin-starred high roller.

I went here on a 4 course set meal deal offer. So impressed! Beautiful building, lovely atmosphere, really friendly & attentive staff. The food was sublime- special mention for the crab lasagne starter which literally melted in the mouth. Sadly the a la carte is outside my budget but the set menus are great value & this was a very special experience. Highly recommended
I had such an amazing experience in Galvin La Chapelle! We made a reservation online for the all-in 7 course menu. Unfortunately we do not like Foie Gras, which was on the menu so I wrote that down. As we arrived in the restaurant, two friendly and warm ladies welcomed us and took our coats. Immediately the architecture and decoration catches your eye - it's absolutely stunning. Once seated, I experienced one of the best customer experience: the menu was adapted to our wishes as we did not like Foie Gras, the staff was so friendly and had eye for detail. The food was great, although I expected a bit more from some dishes, but I would definitely recommend it!
Visited The Galvin La Chapelle about 2 years ago for an early dinner with a buddy. Don't think I've enjoyed the food and the service ever in any other london restaurant as much as I did here.
What an incredible pleasure it was to dine at La Chapelle. Dorset Crab Ravioli, followed by the most succulent Chateaubriand , accompanied by a crisp Chablis and awesome Pinot Noir. Every mouthful was delicious. Service was warm and attentive - and then came the highlight. Jeff Galvin came to the table to say hello. I used to work in the hotel business and he shared his stories of training at The Savoy. He was relaxed and made us all feel relaxed too. Possibly the best meal I have had this year. 5 star stunning - and thanks to Mr Galvin, who makes the magic happen.
The restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere, we sat in a sort of booth in the corner. (7 of us)
The food was supreme and wine pairings perfect.
Fantastic restaurant. We held our wedding reception here for a group of 25 - the restaurant was absolutely faultless and the service impeccable. Many guests commented that it was the best restaurant they had ever eaten at and that is some feat when serving a large group. Hat's off to La Chapelle
