It was a wonderful place. We know that their bread, pastries etc are great but never been to their restaurant. Amazing place, very friendly, professional staff. Great pastries (of course!).

    Disappointed. maybe because we were eating a late lunch and between their lunch and evening dinner sessions! French restaurant by name yet hardly any French ambiance about the restaurant. Food was ok but would not rush back

    Awesome pre theatre meal with great ambience

    The Pre-Theatre menu is excellent value for money for central London - £15 for 3 courses. The service is warm, friendly and efficient.

    The restaurant was lovely, the staff attentive and we had a large choice of tables however when we got there the menu and the options were different to what we saw on the website. After eventually finding our booking confirmation details they said the offer on the website was very old and they no longer offered the wine within the fixed price menu. This was very dissappointing as this was one of the main reasons we booked with them. However after some discussion the manager agreed to honour the website deal as a gesture of good faith, which we were very happy about.
    The food was excellent and despite the problems the staff were very friendly and al in all it was a very pleaseant evening.

    I had planned to surprise my boyfriend with a cake and champagne before going elsewhere for dinner and then theatre because I love their cakes. I had ordered Succes Chocolate (highly recommend) and 2 glasses of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label. I was seated in the corner round table which was perfect for my plans. The part which made my experience here so amazing was the quality of service from the staff. Absolutely amazing! Very friendly and helpful, as well as quick and attentive. I even spilled a glass of champagne which they cleaned up and didn't charge me for. I will definitely be coming by for a meal next time I am in the area purely for the level of service. Thank you for making this part of our day special!

    Good experience overall.
    I expected the interior to the restaurant to look fancier though, and in particular I didn't think i'd have to enter through the bakery.
