“Excellent - but much too much”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

We chose the chef choice which was very good but when I wanted the food to stop coming I knew I am in trouble ...after four deferent dessert dishes. It is expansive restaurant and you know in advance that it will be so. Next time I will order from the menu myself.
I have to admit that I overall enjoyed the Ermitage restaurant in Montreux much better for food and atmosphere much better
For lunch and early dinner

“Right up there but a bit too expensive”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

This was my wife and my fourth visit and we again had a marvellous meal (there were three of us for lunch), the service was absolutely first class, the food was very very good but the only criticism was the price.
If this was dinner the cost would be totally acceptable but just too hot for lunch.
We will definitely be back again, but it will be to be spoilt, and most likely for dinner.
The one definite no-no was the fact that there was a table of two close by who were obviously food critics as they were photographing the food and making copious notes, most probably they ate for free but this establishment does not need parasites like these to critique their food.
For example, we have often eaten at Gordon Ramsay's three Michelin star restaurant (Ramsays) in London, and always wondered why he was not listed in the "great restaurants" of the world (when in fact his is most probably the best) but he has a strict policy of not allowing critics to sponge on his goodwill for a free meal, consequently they very rarely come when they have to pay for themselves.
In closing, Le Pont de Brent is fully deserving of its two Michelin stars and most probably deserves a third, I could easily name three or four that should not have three stars and will do so after I have the second meal there.

“Hate to rain on everyone's parade but...”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

I was a bit disappointed. Look, the food was excellent, and the service just splendid, the nicest people. Somehow, I can't justify how ridiculously expensive if was when comparing to other Michelin star and world-renowned restaurants. I would say that New Yorkers who have dined at Le Bernadine, Jean George or Daniel (and lets throw in Per Se and French Laundry while we are at it) - I don't think you will find this on the same level while being quite a bit more expensive. Sorry, just didn't feel it was worth the money.
