The best service I have ever had in a London restaurant with incredible attention to detail. Had the testing menu, superior variety of dishes, great meat and desserts. We went there to celebrate an important occasion and it was an outstanding night.

This vaunted restaurant carries the weight of expectation, which is usually the first step toward disappointment. Not, however, in this case. The food, service and ambiance were all top notch.

The service was efficient, relaxed and unstuffy. The sommelier suggested some excellent wines at not-ridiculous prices.

The food was extraordinary - particularly the starters (mackerel/ scallops) and desserts (esp. passionate soufflé). Great flavours and all perfectly cooked as one would expect.

Expensive, sure, but well worth a visit. Probably the best meal I have ever had in London and certainly on par with Heston's Dinner.

We went to eat at Ledbury restaurant, 2 michelin star restaurant in Notting Hill. We were there 20 min early, but we were told to come back, not inviting us inside whereas people are already sitting and tables available. We finally came back on time. It took forever to have the menu and the water. The rest of the service is like going to the funeral, so cold. The food is good and the cooking is perfect even not very inventive. As much as we got an amazing welcome in Copenhagen restaurants at the Noma and Geranium, we got a really bad attitude here.

However, as good as this restaurant is, it is just one room, with no bar, no particular ambiance, a "to be seen in place", rather than a "I love it here because the food is so great", place.
The food is good, the servers are exceptional, but at £218 for 2 courses and only one person drinking (a half bottle of wine), it is very overpriced.

One of the best meal we ever had. Sommelier was amazing. Presentation, taste and service all were really top notch.
Wine list was great.
