    The food was beautifully cooked and hard fault. My only criticism would be for my palate I found it heavy on the salt and there could be more greens to bring more balance to some of the dishes.
    The service was well below what we would have expected. Some of the staff were quite offish. Wine waiter took 45 minutes to bring a menu to the table then had to wait another 10 minutes for it to arrive. Junior members of the staff were far more polite and engaging, learn from them.

    It was extraordinary! The only comment is that there were times when I wasn't able to understand the server as he explained the dish being served.

    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.
