    Lovely dining experience, intimate, and professional yet perfectly informal. Excellent,attentive and knowledgeable staff.
    Food was simply delicious, beautifully presented and complex but not at all pretentious. The lobster and chicken dishes were favourites but we were wowed by the Apple desert....just beautiful. Wine was pared perfectly and enhanced the experience.

    Well paced service, enjoyable experience, knowledgeable staff.

  • ((((* 13 August 2018 by Sebastian from Manchester

    It was very nice but I was expecting more. We had the 9 course menu and they ranged from nice to absolutely brilliant. The food was absolutely worth it. The service was fantastic. Everyone was helpful, accommodating, professional and knowledgeable. I would return for the food and the service any time.

    However, the place and the atmosphere were completely off for me. First of all, the light eliminated any sense of intimacy with mainly lighting from the very top ceiling taking centre stage. Then there was the music, an incoherent playlist that had the added bonus of repeating the songs. Lastly, the table positioning (in conjunction with the lighting) made you feel even more exposed.

    Very enjoyable.

    I loved every minute. I always do when I go to The French. The food is sublime and the staff more than courteous and professional. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
