5 stars for stunning food, 1 star for yet another pretentious wine list that are becoming increasingly common in London restaurants. From a quick scan of Chez Bruce's very long wine list I reckon that just 10% of the included wines cost less than £50....More

Fabulous. Great food and service. I was expecting the bill to be greater and was pleasantly surprised. We went to celebrate and the staff helped us do exactly that. Thank you.

We wanted to pair our wines with our meal. We waited for the Somellier (15 mins) to be told he couldn't take the wine order until we had ordered our food. Another 15 minute wait to place the food order and then a wait to...More

I’ve been to Chez Bruce twice before in the last five years and would have said up to this point that it was absolute perfection. However: something seems to have changed and it has just slipped down in the specialness stakes. The dining room is...More

Chez Bruce consistently provides excellent food, wine and service. Outstanding for lunch and for dinner, and the upstairs room is wonderful for private parties.

I doubt it very much this is a Michelin starred restaurant and I don't think it would be appropriate. A guide dog may be a different thing. The best solution would be to contact the restaurant for a definitive answer.
