Club Gascon reviews

I would eat here every week if I could afford it. There is a slightly theatrical element to the service, which I like. The food has been exceptional every time I have been here.

OK, where to start? Lovely place, great food and staff... but (and a very big BUT) an extremely confusing menu. Wasn't sure if I was ordering a degustation or à la carte - the prices were like à la carte but the portions were like a degustation. Wine list restricted to Gascon varieties (asked for an Alsace and it was liked I asked the sommelier to give me a blow job). Extremely expensive for what it is. Much better places to try in London before this. My wife and I went there for a meal and it cost over £220 - definitely not worth it!

The food was fine, but I endured some of the most appalling service I have ever experienced.

Some quite wonderful and unusual food but has been spoiled on several occasions by shockingly poor service.

A far better feel to the place in the evening, I think, but wonderful food on really unusual plates at any time of day. And a really terrific wine list. Our service was great, never imposing, very knowledgeable about the food and hilariously unable to pronounce "wholemeal" when offering us the bread.

Every course I had was just splendid and beautifully presented. I still can't work out how they cooked my salmon.

Highly recommended.
