However great service and wonderful food .

We were blown away with the whole experience but that was perhaps due to it being our first 'proper' meal out since lockdown. Exceptional. Enjoyed each of our 7 courses (veggie menu excellent) and the accompanying wines.
Only minuses were how crowded the bar was for a drink beforehand and that it was sometimes difficult to understand the waiters because of their masks.

An excellent experience from the moment we walked in: innovative and exciting courses, warm service and a perfect ambience. After 7 courses (which turned out to be more like 11 with all the extra treats) we were incredibly full and already trying to decide when we’d come back!

The food and service were simply excellent and the ambiance was very pleasant. Some nice touches that made it feel like an occasion (we went for a birthday). Unlike many establishments, the acoustics were okay, so we could converse easily.
Dear Lollies, Thank you for your message and choosing us to celebrate your special day. We are very much look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future. Kindest regards, Mirko Benzo Restaurant Manager Hélène Darroze at The Connaught
We have been repeated customers at the restaurant for dinner. This time round we did lunch instead & very pleased to find it a very good value for half the price of dinner where we enjoyed fewer dishes but wines & water were included in total cost. Food was consistently good with outstanding dish presentation & matching utensils. Services were excellent as usual. Pairing wines for set dinner have been a bit overpriced & not that impressive though.
An excellent menu, perfectly designed and executed and paired with very good wines. Service was exceptional and there were choices for every one. Subtle but excellent music too.

Thank you to Luca and the Lady blonde Maitre-D for their great professionalism and outstanding hospitality.
The food served was three stars and the new surrounding made it perfect.
We will come back again and again.

This is certainly one od the best rastaurants in London. At a winę pairing the pouring is a bit skimpy. But we do love it and will be back!!

Great food and service, but a poor room with indifferent lighting.
Everything was perfect. Both food and service were outstanding.
Special thanks go to Mattia for making our experience at the Connaught unique.

Quite outstanding. The food and the ingredients were quite superb. Wonderful service but there was no pomposity which one normally associates with establishments like this. Wonderful
It’s a very good restaurant but
Well, we can see her challenge to UMAMI with her vision. But sorry to say , it is too simple and as Japanese who knew UMAMI well, we felt she hasn’t really got how UMAMI works for foods.
We expected something new chemistry between French and UMAMI.
So it was a bit disappointed, sorry to say.
But the service was comfortable and wine were marvellous.
After all, we really enjoyed our experience. Thank you.
Delicious food, professional and courteous service. Overall an enjoyable lunch
Some touches of class but generally not up to the standard of it's peers.
Firstly credit where credit is due. Being able to customise your own menu of 5 or 7 courses of your choice is a fantastic concept and it was really enjoyable plotting a way through the menu. Then the food is very good - but without being mind blowing.
The overall experience leaves you feeling a little short changed however. The service was surprisingly inattentive - after some confusion on arrival we then waited 10 minutes for anyone to bring us a wine list, water, anything! There were some nice touches but too many long waits for anyone to come by. It felt over priced as well. At nearly £500 for two for dinner and drinks I would far prefer to spend that at Core, The Ledbury, Marcus, etc. where I feel you get more "wow" for your money.
Everything was impeccable. Ambiance, setting, service, food, drinks. I highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions. It is obviously not cheap but it’s worth it.
Outstanding meal!! Excellent service and professional. I highly recommend this restaurant.
While some of the food was excellent - crab, venison and foie gras, the dry hake and so-so baba disappointed
We went on a Friday night and couldn’t get a seat in the bar for a pre-dinner drink, which didn’t befit the five star experience
The menu was innovative, with amazing produce, and promised a lot. However look out for the hefty supplements...
The final disappointment was the newly renovated room. We were not fans of the peachy colour scheme and lighting was on the bright side
So while there were high spots the experience did not match the price tag
Definitely not worth the time or money. Service was inconsistent, sometimes fast, sometimes slow. Food was nothing special and the supplementary costs for dishes were outrageous.
It was an incredible experience. The food and the service were both amazing. One of the highlights of a recent trip to London.
One of the best propositions in town for a classy business lunch if you go for the set menu.
Flawless service and particularly creative wine solutions for pairing with the food.
This is a treat, the neighbourhood is magnificent, if you make a mistake and instead of turning right after the entrance in the hotel, one turn left, no worry, you are also in good hand at Jean Georges...
This two star Michelin is all you may expect from a restaurant of that level, superlative delicacy in the food and service, the wine list is a dream, I had a glass of Montrachet, one of Yquem, an Egon Muller white, a Charmes-Chambertin from David Duband, a Dominus from the Napa and a Vouvray Haut-Lieu from Huet... all superbe! I decided to have truffle only in the best restaurants, the others try to fool you with second choice or fake truffle with no taste or smell... this is not the case here, they serve generous shavings of strong flavoured Tuber. One of the very best meal of the year! I really enjoyed the very polite, skill full and distinguished service, in French, without being obsequious.
very sweaty and Warming service for us, today is my birthday and I received a birthday cake from there
A firm favourite which never fails to please. Refurbished since our last visit with a modern look (not sure if it's really an improvement, but it's a matter of taste. Food and service remain impeccable, and if you stick to the lunch menu (even with supplements) it is excellent value.
Amazing diner for my boyfriend 50. it was a very sweet evening in a very quiet place in London.
Lovely room, absolutely top notch service, actual choices on the menu so everyone doesn’t have to have the same thing, excellent food.
Very nice food and lovely setting. We experience three Michelin starred restaurants in the one week and compared and contrasted. The food was what you would expect from a two star but the value was not and it was a little annoying that certain dishes carried a fairly hefty supplement. No dish was outstanding, not even the signature dessert which I have to say was a fairly ordinary rum baba! We were also slightly put out that we did not have a matched wine that was advertised on the menu and another lower grade wine was put in its place. Also we were not offered wine at all for one dishes despite the fact we would have been happy to pay so all in all not great service either but everyone was pleasant.
Came to the restaurant for my mom and aunts first visit to London. Did not disappoint! Food, presentation, and service was spectacular. The added bonus was that a fully vegetarian set menu was available for my mom which gave her a lot more options. Planning to be back for special occasion situations
This was our second visit. The first one, a couple of years ago, was remarkable. This time, however, service was sloppy, and the experience, overall, not as exciting. They should try a bit harder, for the prices they charge.
Plats beaux mais sans réelle surprise en dehors du visuel pour le crabe .
Le personnel très souriant et agréable sans aucune faute en dehors de l attente au départ de prés de 10 minutes avant de me voir proposer une boisson .
J avais une réelle attente qui n a pas été comblée ayant eu un immense souvenir il y a quelques années chez Hélène Darroz a Paris .
Good, as always, is outstanding. The recent refurbishment has been done tastefully and is an improvement.
We went for the set lunch menu which is excellent value for money. Fingers crossed this changes on a monthly basis
An amazing dining experience with some of the best food I have tried for a while. Make sure you order the grouse as it was my knockout dish of the night! Doubt I’ll be able to return anytime soon as it is very expensive but hopefully one day I’ll get to relive the wonderful evening I had there.
As always, the experience is perfect: seamless non-fawning service, wonderful amuses bouches that really set the tone for an unforgettable meal. We chose the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing that was beautifully prepared and presented with the right balance of seasoning.
I do not like things over-salted, which for me shows a lack of palate on the part of the chef and they always get it right. The wines served were delicious too so the whole lunch was joyous - what more is there to say ... just book!
