a stunningly ambient and aesthetically pleasing piece of Paris in Richmond but with stunningly pleasant service from staff who smile and seem to love their job. A warm and inviting place that is no doubt a neighbourhood haunt both Winter and Summer. Cant wait to return.

Service needs attention, wait time for food was way too long. Over an hour and a half

WAYGOOD
Responded on 15 December 2021

We are concerned with your feedback on a wait time so we have broken it down to a time line after checking in with all the staff on Saturday and our system . Your booking was for a group 6@ 7.30 , first arrival 7.40, last arrival 7.55 , food order taken 8.06 first course sent 8.23 and the main course was sent out at 8.58. A staff member was meant to passed on our pasta special had sold out and a fresh batch was being made in service hence a delay on mains. Sincere apologies from us all .

Very small portions. Pricey menu, limited range. Service was slow and the waiters often rushed to take our uncleared plates and cutlery before we had finished! Lovely ambience and top decor.

WAYGOOD
Responded on 19 November 2021

The décor has been a real joy to put together and now see people enjoy it is a further joy , our sincere apologies that you found your service slow ( the team really cares about our service so they were disappointed to read that) , we have put together a menu of small 5-10 medium 17-19 and large plates 24-35 with lots of people choosing to share . Our menu is intentionally limited , quality fresh ingredients as well as constantly changing.

Not a good introduction to the restaurant by an inexperienced staff member who was gauche, blunt, overtalked, and opened the door letting himself into the venue and closing it on me. Once inside, he didn't know where to place me while tables were being readied. I suggested sitting at the bar. He was unsure, then talked loudly at me telling me where it was forbidden to park. Another staff member eventually approached and offered me a glass of water and finally led me to our table.
The subsequent staff were helpful and pleasant.
The food was unremarkable, with my partner having to return a very gristly steak.

WAYGOOD
Responded on 14 May 2021

Our sincere apologies for a poor beginning , I'm pleased to read things had been retrieved with subsequent staff, I believe the replacement steak was also well received . Yes the parking behind us belongs to the adjacent property unfortunately.
