A really nice meal had by all 3 of us. Starters interesting and tasty. Main courses also well thought out and presented. Puddings big. Staff very kindly turned down the music so that we could hear each other. Wine nice : good choice. Service overall : efficient, friendly and informed.

The food was nice, the service could definetely be improved. Not very attentive, forgot to bring the bottle of wine we ordered and just overall is was below average. Upon leaving they also forgot to get our coats so we had to ask again for these.

very slow service, food ok but mostly cold and side orders forgotten, overpriced...not a great experience for a special family birthday. However, the staff were polite and responded to our complaints by substantially reducing the bill.

All the food was delicious and well presented. Interesting menu choices. I can recommend the crispy pork terrine for a starter.

Our experience at Malmaison Brasserie was rather disappointing. Having booked a great deal through Bookatable we were looking forward to an exceptional dining experience. We had a last minute cancellation in our party so I went in to notify the team 30 mins before our booking so that they could alter our table - but this wasn't done at all. I was also called Sir by the lady I spoke to, I'm visibly a female!! There was inconsistency in the timings in our food being served, having to wait a few minutes for each different dish that had been ordered for each course. My starter of salt & pepper squid was more like squid in tasteless batter on a bed of mushy tomatoes. The chicken was undercooked and when checking this with a waitress she agreed. When the same mentioned for the other chicken dish on our table the waiter dismissed this as our lack on knowledge on the colour and texture of poussin. They took the cost of these 2 chicken mains off our bill without it having to be requested. Having had such high hopes for a great dining experience will definitely not be going back.
