Never been before until a glamorous Hen Party - A private room was booked - 16 of us. Very stylish place, great atmosphere and service. The food was outstanding and all the party enjoyed the evening. So I will return for diner a deux.

This place came highly recommended and we had high hopes on arrival as the restaurant has a unique decor and atmosphere. We could not have been more disappointed! The food was seriously awful. The starters were just ok but the main courses ranged from bad to worse. My sole was rolled into a stuffed golf ball with the consistency of... More

Bob Bob Richard is a funky and posh restaurant, which charmingly has a 'Press for Champagne' button by each table. Unfortunately, the lunch menu felt more like a heavy dinner and I would rather recommend guests to visit for dinner, rather than lunch.

BBR provides a grateful environment, however, the service and food are quite disappointing. I had dinner reservation booked to welcome my friends arriving from the States. On the day of the booking, I received a voice mail confirming the booking and subsequently returning the call to confirm. Immediately thereafter, my booking was unexpectedly cancelled. I had to make another phone... More

I had booked Bob Bob for my birthday. I thought it would be a change from the usual places I go to and I had heard good things about the place. The table was booked for 10pm and we arrived at 10:30pm. No less than 14 attempts to call the restaurant were made on the day to reschedule this. Assuming... More

From the moment we walked in, we could tell we were going to be treated well. Our coats and shopping bags were taken to a storage room for us to sit comfortably in our booth. The servers were all professional, the food was impeccable and the ambience was serene. Though slightly more on the picey side, the experience was worth... More

Loved this place! Very good food and a nice nod towards Russian food - but not overpoweringly so. Decor is classic and layout means you can have a private conversation easily and not be drowned out by the general hubbub. Love the "press for champagne" button in each booth as well. Highly recommended for dining in Soho/central London.

I've been to Bob Bob Ricard a few times now and it never fails to impress, the interior and the service are both high end and worth coming back for. For starter I had the crab which was generous and delicious, for main the pork belly was moreish. Friends had the lobster Mac and cheese and some said there could've... More

Have wanted to go to Bob bob ricard for a while and it really lived us to its expectations. First of all the staff and service is amazing, from the door staff to the waiters, it couldn't of been better. The food was lovely, you of course have to have the signature dessert. I would really recommend a visit here!

Thank RoseMPS

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
