    2 of my friends from NYC wanted to have an experience in French gastronomy so I took them to Helene Darroze at the Connaught. We took the 9 course menu to let the chef surprise us but indicated dislikes: chocolate and onions. The food was excellent, amazing flavours, perfect cooking, a real travel.
    Unfortunately the message on the onions was not given to the chef first and my friends who dislike those ended up with big onions in their plate. The waiter advised the chef but it happened again once. Same with the chocolate sauce that came along.
    This tainted a bit the experience as you would expect form a 2 star michelin restaurant the customer satisfaction is so high on the agenda that those mistakes would not happen. I had never seen it happen in France in any of this type of restaurants.
    On the other, service was excellent, ambiance fantastic, we did the closure at 1.30am happy and taking away some delicious macarons for the next morning.
    All in all great but some point to still improve.

    very disappointing - very slow service, very expensive for what it is and I went especially for the galette, which was very small slice and not very good - first disappoitning experience at Helene Darroze

    From the moment we arrived we were treated exceptionally well. The whole dining experience was superb, from the service to the food. One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. I took my sister there for her birthday.

    A thoroughly enjoyable meal with fantastic food and great service. Five selections (though could have had 7 or 9) were enough for a good meal accompanied by a bottle of wine.

    We loved the entire experience. Everything, from the food to the wine, was excellent and the service at very high quality. We felt like very valuable customers.
    Just a quick note: we chose the 7 dishes experience and that would have good to be advised about quantities as we could barely finish our last dish which is obvioulsy a shame. Thanks

    Food divinely good. Exciting menus, wine pairings perfect, service impeccable. My only small caveat is that the staff all speak their english with heavy french accent and sometimes is hard to understand their explanations of dishes. Otherwise, perfect birthday lunch w my husband.
