We visited this place for Sunday late breakfast on 17.08

Before coming when we called the person refused to take booking stating all tables are sold out. On request he finally accepted the booking.

We arrived and the restaurant was filled with mere 25% capacity. Till we were there there was table to seat over 40-45 people empty. Which makes me wonder if they did not want people to come for breakfast to their restaurant??

Anyway LPQ food is good but this place Did not have any spreads. They served us breads but No spreads!! Only butter. This had happened In the same restaurant 3 weeks ago and I thought it was one of the incident. But imagine eating breads with kids without their regular spread of chocolate marmalade and jams.

On questioning the staff said their shipment is stuck at customs for 3 months. For 3 months??? What kind of excuse is this?

I've had bf at LPQ in other parts of world like NY etc and it's amazing experience. Unfortunately Mumbai is a drag on their name, value and experience.


Not taking booking and having no stock of spreads shows the kind of mismanagement this outlet offers.

We were 8 of us who went on rainy Monday evening to celebrate a family birthday. After placing the orders, we were told that there is no John Dory Fish which 2 of our family members wanted to order. So Basa was chosen as an alternative. After placing the remaining order, we were told that now the Lamb Shanks were not there which was again ordered by 2 other family members. This ruined the complete experience and the special occasion for us. When we asked for the Manager, we were told that he had gone home........which was the icing on the cake.

I could not blame the service staff as they were really efficient and polite but with the limited menu if things are not available even from that and no manager also, it speaks very poorly of the management.

What was finally served to us was no doubt very good except the chicken.

This LPQ outlet is located in BKC. It is easy to find the place as it is in the Maker Maxity building which you can never miss. The name essentially means daily bread (I think so!). I happened to visit the restaurant few Friday nights back with my wife. I didnt have a reservation so was apprehensive whether we will get a place or not. It wasn't very busy that day so luckily we got a place easily.

The restaurant is decently sized with a good mixture of small and large tables. The decor is largely wooden (in appearance atleast) and looks classy. The entire place has a romantic feel to it due to dim lights and candles on each table. Hmmmmm. As we arrived, we were warmly greeted and ushered to a table next to the glass facade. We could see the garden outside and so it felt very nice. The menu is not very big but that is not really a bad thing. They don't promise everything under the sun and then deliver sub-par food like many places do these days to please as many people possible.

Going by the hype they seemed to have a specialty called "Tartines". I wasn't aware what it meant until I saw the description. Its actually an open sandwich. So, we ordered one roasted chicken & smoked mozarella tartine and one spinach and ricotta ravioli. We were promised fresh food and both the dishes were really very fresh. The tartine was a great sandwich and all the toppings tasted absolutely fresh. The ravioli too was well made and tasted fresh. Both the dishes were great and a thumbs up to the chef.

I will definitely recommend the place for its great ambulance, courteous service and awesome food.

Visited the BKC outlet and to my surprise the walk-ins are treated as they are geabage. The attitude of the host and hostess is totally unacceptable and rude to the core. They think you are there cos you have come for some free walk in the place to eat free food.
The valet asks for the parking fee before you even step out of your car. The guy flicked money from the glove box that had change money for tolls. Don't think I would visit that kind of place again when you are spoilt for choice..
