La Dame de Pic London

Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

The first UK restaurant from French megachef Anne-Sophie Pic is located at the Four Seasons hotel in the City. That alone should tell you all you need to know. It’s ostentatious. It’s really frickin’ expensive. There’s foie gras and lobster on the menu and a fat book of a wine list. The room is palatial and the mirrored walls give the place a sprawling MC Escher vibe. Finding your way to the loo when smashed would be a nightmare.

A starter of skinned little tomatoes in an intensely flavoured consommé was marvellous: sweet-savoury and almost cakey in taste. It came with a sublimely light burrata ice cream. A mouthful of both tomato and cheese concotions taken together screamed ‘ethereal pizza’. Deep green pasta parcels stuffed with air-light goat’s cheese were equally fab – not, thankfully, overpowered by the matcha-infused broth poured over them. It was all very clever stuff, as you’d expect for a mind-boggling £23 (the toms were only a quid less).

If only the mains had been as good. The breast meat and a smoky side dish of grilled legs in a Brittany pigeon dish (£41, please) were excellent. But a tiny slab of foie gras needed proper searing and the promised coffee notes in the sauce were entirely absent. A cut of John Dory (£38, ta) was also cooked well, but it remains a boring fish.

You can’t fault the skill displayed here. This was meticulous cooking, close to being great but just falling short on punchy, memorable flavours. And almost maniacally pricey, too: two starters, two mains and one bottle of water clocked in at £150. But that won’t bother everyone. La Dame De Pic is an irrefutably classy joint for the well-heeled foodie.

What a beautiful dining experience this was. We came here for my sister's birthday and we left blown away by not only the food but the service.

The menu itself is adventurous and classically composed at the same time.

Every dish has so much love and effort woven into it and its so apparent in every detail and taste.

To top it all off we were greeted by The 3 star Michelin chef Anne-Sophie Pic who came over to every diner and had a talk with us.

What a lady and a true artist in the form of cuisine. I will happily go there over and over again to experience such bliss!

French Michelin starred chef Anne-Sophie Pic just opened her new restaurant in the luxurious hotel the Four Seasons.


Of course not everyone can dine in a nearly palace restaurant, but we all can lunch!



One good reason to visit La Dame de Pic is its 3 courses lunch menu for £40.


On arrival, you got offered a small reduction juice plenty of savour and a pretty crispy leaf made with some spices.


I spent a full week with my friend trying to decide what to eat. This is always hard as everything looks good, and I am not often eating in that kind of place. I don’t want to let go on an amazing food experience.


I am French, and bread is something I particularly miss in London; I was so delighted to have this basket on hot bread on the table, I could have eaten it all even before the dishes arrive.

I did great to refrain myself from doing it, because the food was extremely good and delicate, and my dessert, the matcha and hazelnuts opera was a piece of art!



If you got no chance to go during the week because you are not working around the City of London, note that during the weekend, the restaurant is as well proposing a lunch menu but for £55 this time, and is offering 5 dishes.


Booking highly recommended!
