The only restaurant in London with this kind of service that’s not attached to a hotel. From the moment we walked up to the place we felt taken care of. The nice man opened the door for us, a lady showed us to the service desk, the service desk confirmed our reservations, another lady showed us to our table... the waiters were also very capable. The champagne list was short but very good. The champagne button was a brilliant idea, although I wouldn’t go too crazy with it since the prices are quite high. The Egg à La Bob is a very good starter regardless of price. I also strongly recommend the chicken Kiev (front and bottom in the picture), I have tried other items on the menu but from the texture, to the taste, to the presentation it is excellent. Additionally when it comes to food I would also advise to stay away from any sea food unless you know that’s what you like. Russian cuisine has a somewhat different approach to fruits of the sea then the rest of the world and this is authentically represented (its supposed to be like that). Another big reason I gave this restaurant 5 stars is because there were no depressed elderly black men waiting to put soap on my hands in the toilet (which is what I expected from this type of restaurant). No instead the staff trusted me to handle my busyness by myself just like I have every other day of my life.
Extraordinary in every detail... how to describe a simply wonderful dining experience...? Friendly professional staff with a beautifully trained eye for detail, a genuine sense of pride and a gently relentless, consistent, exquisite presentation of themselves and their food. However as a word, “food” is awkwardly inadequate to describe the edible masterpieces that are created within the Bob Bob Ricard kitchen. We enjoyed a sensitive confluence of fresh ingredients that resulted in my favourite fish pie and a flamboyantly artistic yet simply delicious interpretation of dessert. Combined with excellent cocktails, fresh mint leaf tea and a table setting of carefully placed signature crockery, this restaurant is an experience well beyond simply dining, this restaurant is a representation of creative humanity at its best.
Overall this restaurant offers a very nice dinning experience. Food was tasty with a good variety of both fish and meat options. Good wine list and cocktail menu. The staff are very friendly and attending. And most of all, the restaurant was spacious with comfortable tables and seats/booths that offered both privacy and a more romantic setting. The art deco styles of the interior very very nice and appealing to the eye.
This is a beautiful, centrally located restaurant. My daughter took me to dinner for my birthday with a friend, I was a little reluctant as it is a bit expensive. As a treat it is definitely a good recommendation. But if someone isn't able bodied it may not be advised. The waiting staff were helpful, polite and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was lovely. I couldn't relax because I'm trying to get her to save for a mortgage! But had I not been worried on that score it would have been perfect!
Such a novelty to have a champagne button, but actually, come for the food and the button is an added bonus. This place is class from the moment you walk in- beautiful interior and amazing atmosphere. The food is superb and incredibly well delivered to the table. Warm and charming service. Always on my list!
