Restaurant description

The flagship restaurant of the spectacular Lanesborough hotel, Céleste offers high-end contemporary fine dining, and retained their Michelin star in the 2018 Michelin guide as well as holding 3 AA Rosettes. The blissful Venetian-style dining room features a domed glass ceiling, suspended chandeliers and ornate wall carvings.

Weaving artful flair through the finest available ingredients, the Céleste restaurant menu includes sautéed squid with black ink porridge, native lobster with smoked broccoli purée, or wild roe deer saddle quince confit with cinnamon and celeriac and red wine sauce.

Guests dining in Céleste can expect magnificently decadent desserts, such as their Guanaja chocolate with caramelised cashew nut praline, chocolate mousse and roasted coffee bean ice cream, or hand-crafted sugar fig, sangria sorbet and fig leaf foam. This fairy tale space also boasts 2 luxurious wine tasting rooms, and afternoon tea at Céleste in London is multiple-time winner of the UK Team Council’s Award of Excellence.

    We were generally disappointed with this restaurant. Undoubtedly the room is impressive but the staff, whilst pleasant, were not professionals and the head waiter was wearing a badly stained jacket which was far too small for him, it didn’t make a good impression. The food was average and expensive. I wouldn’t return and I couldn’t recommend it.

    Beautiful Hotel. Brilliant food. Terrible Service, too many issues to list out enough to say that it really felt like the staff differentiated between those guest that were there on the Bookatable a deal and those that were dining ala carte. Very disappointing.

    Celeste is superb - every morsel is absurdly delicious, the service is world-class, and the Star Deal really is remarkably good value.

    Not a good dining experience The service was very poor - we felt like second class citizens ?perhaps because we were eating from the bookatable set menu The wines were ridiculously high end price wise, so the value of the overall experience was poor despite the good deal on the food The food was of a reasonable standard but poorly presented as well - a bit sloppy for a restaurant of this standing Not a michelin level experience at all

    CELESTE s experience was very good indeed, as usual remains one of my favourite places . Food was very good , overall a superb experience. May I mention, I was a bit concerned to book it again, as during my last experience where a party of 6 were attending and disappointed ie. portion sizes. 3 gentlemen were present in our dinner and food size was unacceptable. The only thing I noticed, the protocol by their personnel at the restaurant was not as usual, maybe due to the turnover of it. I ve noticed it was less refined than used to be. Previous stuff nationals were French with a higher dine savoir faire attitude. As I mentioned before this time I was delighted, so was my companion which was visiting England and she is looking to book the restaurant with partner when next in England. Kind regards.

    we had the festive menu and everything was fine, just that I didn't like the turkey option for main course very beautiful and luxury ambience i think this restaurant is best for the ambience and maybe good for dates and special occasions or business meetings
