We had a very pleasant meal and met a lovely couple next to us who joined us for drinks in the Artesan bar afterwards.
I love the Roux family so it almost pains me to say this...the food was very nice, but not memorable?
Don't get me wrong I would definitely eat there again and the staff were professional and attentive, it was just nice....which in itself was just a little disappointing.
Perhaps I had built it up too much and will find my disappointment rectified on our next visit.

When you see the name Roux, you have high expectations. We left this restaurant very disappointed, and wouldn't recommend it. My scallops were good to start, but my wife's leek soup was bland. Her pasta was too thick and the whole dish lacked taste or finesse. Like may French restaurants, they don't cater well to those patrons who don't eat meat. My beef was cooked well, but the overall dish was nothing special. My rum baba contained no rum. The previous night we had dined at the 3 starred Alain Ducasse, so anything was going to be a let-down, but we didn't expect to fall this hard.

The only redeeming feature was that the manager, Franco, came by to apologise. He was very charming and even took a couple of dishes off the bill, which was unnecessary. He was so nice, I even felt sorry for him.

This restaurant does not have a Michelin star, and on this showing it's easy to see why. There are much better options available nearby.

Great bar - do go for a drink before dinner. Nice staff in bar and restaurant, friendly. We took my mother for her 70th and had a very pleasant evening - elegant room, nice buzzy ambience, nice that they had written 70th birthday celebration on the menu. We had a set menu, but when I said I didn't like rum baba they offered me several alternatives, and I chose a chocolate millefeuille instead, which was fine. But it wasn't as special as Martin wishart or sat bains... (Though I know Edinburgh and Nottingham are a long way to go from Portland Place...). The wine flight arrived disconnected from the food, and somehow nothing quite flowed - the service though friendly was a touch amateurish, the food though accomplished was a little bit old fashioned (even after I'd wriggled out of the rum baba...). So in summary a nice enough dinner in a nice enough place, but you'd think you could do better in London for the money...

Was taken here by my partner for my birthday and it lived up to expectations.
Food was tasty, not too 'fussy', and high quality.
Staff were very attentive, but also friendly, and knowledgeable .
Décor is very white! Not a typical 'relaxing' dining environment with laughter, chatter and 'hustle and bustle', but when you come to a place like this that isn't the type of atmosphere you are looking to experience. It is very serene and elegant, you do not feel rushed to leave the restaurant and it helps you focus more on the food, wine and conversation.
Also they did a lovely surprise for my birthday with some petit fours on a slate with the words 'Happy Birthday'. Perfect.
Especially recommend the Pineapple soufflé with white chocolate ice cream- Amazing!!!
