Balthazar London Ratings and Reviews
The food was good considering the location and the price point.
It was a busy Saturday night and it was buzzing. The staff was quite nice and easy to talk to.
I would advise a friend, who doesn't know London so well and isn't to fussed with the price of things.
I would like to try it for brunch, because the bread and the madeleines were to die for ;)
We are returning customers and picked this restaurant because we were dining with 'out of towners' and it's got a great atmosphere and the decor is impressive. What I'd forgotten though is actually how good the FOOD is - much better food than comparable brasseries such as Zedel or the Ivy Group.
We were a few minutes late, but our table was held, we enjoyed Balthazar classics (beef stroganoff and pan-fried salmon) - and an enterprising waitress, discovering that a birthday treat of desserts had been wrongly ordered by our neighbouring table, instead served them up to me, having heard it was my birthday the day before!
Met my Mum and my Aunt for a meal after the matinee of 42nd Street. I was delayed and they were looked after by the staff really well. There was a nice buzz about the evening and the food was great ! Especially the chocolate fondant. Straight outside they could get a taxi straight back to their hotel , so stress free for 2 very with it octigenarians !
Great service and food as always. I dine here quite a lot and I did feel the table was crammed in this time with not much space between our neighbours. When the bill came it also felt quite pricey for what we had at £65 per person. Other than that still remains a favourite place.
Balthazar never fails to satisfy. The staff are really on the ball and if you want to have a quick business meal and catch up its the perfect place. Very fast service, good food with lots of options. There is a really mixed clientele, business lunches, dates, family gatherings and the atmosphere is lively and loud.
Took my girlfriend here for a surprise afternoon tea for her birthday. The food was excellent and plenty of it for the two of us! The service very efficient and friendly and the atmosphere of the place was great.
Really nice place and will be definitely be returning!
Food was lovely it was the best fish pie I have ever had. The portions are big sadly we couldn’t manage a pudding but the certainly looked nice.
My only complaints would be it was a bit noisy so difficult to hear each other we were also packed in when I left to go to the toilet I couldn’t get back in my seat so we just paid the bill & left
We had a delicious weeknd brunch, great food and coffee, but the experience was let down by the service. There was a lot of staff hanging around chatting yet we had to wait ages to order, for our drinks etc and it was quite difficult to get anyone’s attention when you wanted to order more drinks or get the bill. If the service had been better I would have scored them a 5.
