We went to Le Gavroche restaurant for my birthday dinner on the 23rd of August, from the moment we walked through the front door you could tell we were going to be treated with a top quality meal and service.
We enjoyed a nice glass of house champagne in the bar with some nibbles brought to us, after our drinks and 10 minutes to browse the wine and food menu we were directed to our table downstairs, as soon as you enter the restaurant you realise the history that resides within this room, the décor is plush and relaxed.
Once seated the wine we chose upstairs was bought to the table, my partner tasted the wine and to be honest the sommelier looked a bit perplexed that I had asked the lady to taste the wine, myself I am a real ale drinker and as much as I enjoy wine with a meal my partner was more experienced in wine. We had also picked the Menu Exceptionnel while enjoying our pre-dinner drink to which I must say the waiter was absolutely fantastic in taking into account my partner dietary requirements (No fish, Seafood) and suggested 3 changes.
The meal itself from the Cheese Soufflé through to the cheese board was fantastic, every course looked amazing and tasted so much better.
In a few of the reviews on this site people mention that men must wear there jacket through the meal, this is correct and male guests are required to wear a jacket, this worried me before we arrived as I am naturally a warm person and find eating when hot difficult and uncomfortable. All my fears were averted though as the bar and restaurant were at a very comfortable temperature level and in no way did I feel I would like to remove the jacket, also my partner who didn’t wear a jacket said she was very comfortable the temperature.
To conclude I couldn’t recommend this restaurant more, the whole experience was superb from start to finish, Thank You Michel Roux and all the staff for making what I hoped would be a superb meal into a fantastic and unforgettable one.
