L'Escargot Marco Pierre White reviews

My sister and I treated our younger sister to a meal at L'Escargot before going to the theatre, for her birthday. The service was excellent and the restaurant was very nice. However, when we arrived for our booking at 5.20pm we were told we had to go out until 5.30pm, which was the time our table was booked. We were told there was a bar we could go to down the road and to return at 5.30pm. It was freezing cold outside and there wouldn't have been enough time to go anywhere else.

The other disappointing thing was, the meal my sister ordered was completely tasteless and had to be sent back. The waiter did bring her something else but she really wanted a pasta dish.

I have posted this in the hope that improvements are made.

My friends and I had dinner at L'Escargot yesterday evening and unfortunately it was not a satisfactory occasion. The starter (parsnip soup) was cold, the main (turkey) was salty and bland, and the dessert was tasteless. However, the coffee and mince pie were delicious. The meal was certainly not worth the expense.

Was disappointed with this restaurant. The food was pretty poor considering the price, and we felt as if we were being rushed.

Ate a delicious meal here - absolutely fantastic. Would recommend the veal as it's excellent. Make sure you eat upstairs though, for a real experience.
