“Fabulous!!!”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

We had a meal here as part of our dinner bed and breakfast package at the Caley. What a great experience!!!
The food was delicious. A special shoutout for the crab lasagne with it's delectable sauce and the raspberry soufflé, which was to die for!!
The staff were attentive without being intrusive and when we had to wait a little longer for our entrees than the head waiter deemed acceptable, we were both given a glass of complimentary champagne. Great, particularly as we didn't feel we had waited long at all!!!
Highly recommended!!

“Scrumptious food and wine”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

We went for dinner on spec, and were very pleased with the food,service and ambiance. Good bread and butter, delicious crab lasagne and onion velouté starters,with very well cooked duck confit and the plaice with shrimps was absolutely perfect. A side of Dauphinoise potatoes was very good and the wines by carafe were good value and matched well to the food, with the Sommeliers help. Keeping to the high standards of the Galvin Brothers London Restaurants ! Well Done!

“Easter Sunday lunch”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We were attracted by the 3 course meal offer for £29 and booked for 2.30pm. The place was still pretty busy with only a few free tables but there was a good buzz going on. There was a hiccup with the service that was eventually sorted out a couple of days later so I don't need to labour that point. The food was almost faultless- the pea veloute starter with smoked haddock and poached quail egg could have been supported with a bit more haddock but that really is nit-picking; it was delicious. Next up was roast beef with all the trimmings and all I can say is that it was the most perfectly cooked and tasty piece of beef I've had for some time. In fact I'm struggling to think of a better slice of beef I've had and that includes kobe and rib of beef at Tom Kitchen's place. An apple tarte tatin (£4 supplement) finished off a terrific meal. It isn't cheap at almost £90 for three courses for two and a couple of glasses of house wine however it is definitely worth a return visit.

“Really impressed!”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We had an event for 30 people at the Galvin Brasserie de Luxe, booked because we had really enjoyed a meal upstairs at the Pompadour earlier in the month. The food was excellent (melt in the mouth smoked salmon, perfectly cooked and incredibly flavoursome duck confit, and a delicious panna cotta with just the right about of acidity from rhubard), but what really stood out was the level of service. The staff were attentive but not overbearing, and made the night run beautifully. I would recommend the food to anyone, and the fact that the staff were so prepared made it a really great event. Thank you!
