Amazing food and service

One of the West End's most desirable restaurants, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon serves simple yet exquisite French cuisine courtesy of multi-award-winning celebrity chef Joël Robuchon. Already with several accolades to his name, Joël Robuchon's Soho restaurant has been awarded a Michelin star and 3 AA Rosettes.
Influenced by Japanese restaurants, the layout of L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon encourages an engaging dining experience. The eating counter surrounds the open kitchen on the ground floor, inviting diners to converse with the chefs whilst watching them prepare their meal. Unique to Joël Robuchon's London restaurant, you can also interact with other diners whilst sitting opposite each other. A more conventional restaurant setting can be found in La Cuisine on the first floor, where the experience is similar to dining in the kitchen itself.
Within short walking distance of Covent Garden and Leicester Square underground stations, the Soho setting of this internationally acclaimed restaurant makes it perfect for a pre or post-theatre meal in the West End of London. Nearby theatres around this restaurant include the New Ambassador's Theatre, Piccadilly Theatre, Palace Theatre and London Arts Theatre. The comfortable, stylish ambience makes L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon an ideal restaurant in Covent Garden for romantic meals, business dining and special occasions. Valet parking is available and a smart casual dress code is operated (no shorts or trainers).

Really good quality food, tasty, beautifully presented and the portion sizes were small enough to allow us to try several different dishes. Great service, and we felt very well looked after. We didn't like the counter seats we were initially given as we felt that we were overlooked and overheard by the kitchen staff, but the waiting staff were happy to move us to a proper table. We also didn't much like the high chairs, but at least they made us sit up straight and pay full attention to the food. It was worthy of the attention. This restaurant is too expensive for everyday dining but worthy of a special treat.

Very creative (and obviously delicious) food! Great selection of wine as well, the sommelier did a good job suggesting the right wine for the occasion. Given the quality of the food, we thought it was (relatively speaking) not stupidly expensive.
On the other hand, quality of service was average. they didnt seem very passionate about their job and were too quick to bring the food. Also the music selection is not great (and unnecessary given the venue / food experience)
Fantastic dinner overall!

We had a wonderful lunch, the food was delicious, beautifully presented and the service was attentive & well done. A great afternoon. Booking service, easy and efficient. Steak was wonderful, creamy mash, the extra things to try in between courses we’d ordered and bread for table was lovely touch. A good experience. Thank you.

Although we booked the £45 three course menu through your website, we were told upon arrival that they do not offer this set menu on sundays and only have a la carte. We were looking forward to our lunch and were thoroughly disappointed.

A delightful experience. The food and service is second to none and being able to watch the chefs at work is pure theatre. I'd recommend this place to anyone but don't all go there as I won't be able to get a table next time.
My only niggle and it's a small one is that not everyone likes chocolate (yes believe it or not I don't) so would like a more varied dessert menu but don't let that put you off.
