French
London's most authentic French Brasseries with 2 venues in the capital, GAZETTE captures the essence of local French village cafés with a commitment to fantastic seasonal food, wine discovery and true hospitality all served in comfortable informal surroundings from breakfast through dinner.

GAZETTE was originally born in Battersea in 2007 and had a gentle expansion with the opening of the Putney branch. GAZETTE is described by owners Pascal Even and Walter Lecocq as a rural style of French brasserie, one you’d find in Provincial areas of France.
Both want it to reflect the spirit of local French cafés and offer a cuisine that is simple, generous and vivacious, with lots of daily specials and on-going food events, and where transpires the warmth and cordiality of true French cuisine.

    Delicious lunch to celebrate my daughter becoming a fully qualifies teacher. We shared a dozen oysters which, being English, were delicious. She then had octopus and I had moules frites. Just what we both needed. For a pop in, treat yourselves and get on this is perfect. For a long endless lunch it would be even better. This is now, without doubt, our local.

    We waited 15 mins to be seated. Once we were sat, 15 minutes passed and no one came to take our drinks order. Got up and left! Poor service which is disappointing as we’ve always had good meals and good service here.

    Gazette has great food and it’s fairly priced for London. We’ve been a few times and always enjoy eating there. The only thing that makes it uncomfortable sometimes is that the staff are clearly not that happy working there and it creates a slightly negative ambiance. It’s very close to being a 5 star experience

    Awful service, very disappointing. They messed our order, then it took ages for them to arrive. This meant we had our meals separately as it took so long. No apology, no compensation, and no gratitude. Not what you'd expect from a place like this and paying c£100 for lunch for 2. We won't be coming here ever again. This place is so pretincious as are their staff.

    The food was amazing and the drinks were great too. The service was outstanding, however our plates took quite longer than expected. Other than that we would definitely recommend it. Ambiance is ok, not sure if it was the time we went, but is super casual.

    This is a follow-up to my critical first review following the recent make-over. Completion of the back wall with its eclectic collection of 'stuff' has considerably improved and softened the ambiance, but the main improvement is the lowering of the previously harsh lighting levels. The counter area still looks a bit too shiny and canteen-style for an authentic French brasserie, but overall the experience was good though still not as 'intimate' as of old. I wonder if more can be done to tone-down the noise level which the new hard surfaces seem to amplify, possibly with the introduction of a few more fabric surfaces ? Possibly even the cheese offering might return, which seems a strange omission for a French establishment ! Overall a much better experience and a good evening.

    Unfortunately, a disappointing meal. We’ve got a salmon tartare for the started which was decent. Swordfish steak and duck fillet we’ve got for our mains were poorly cooked (duck was really tough while fish was oversalted and overcooked), spinach on the side was bland and looked as if someone had forgotten it in the fridge for a week and then just put on a plate without even cooking beforehand. Was really hoping we’ve discovered a cozy French brasserie for casual dinners but I’m afraid I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone and will not come back.

    This is still a good place to eat, but it has undergone a makeover which has totally changed (destroyed ?) the ambiance. From intimate and comfortable it has morphed into bright and clinical, with nothing to absorb the noise or to soften the effect. Some may like it, but it has changed dramatically from the inviting French Bistro that became a Battersea success story. Here was a great opportunity to stick with the brasserie charm but maybe increase the covers and increase contact safety by (eg) putting in some traditional booth seating. Instead you walk through the door and encounter a gleaming canteen-style counter, bright floor tiles and white, white walls and ceiling. Let's see what happens, but if it doesn't work they should quickly rip it out and dumb it down. Quel dommage.

    Bathrooms were blocked and there was the noise of the pumps going for a while. My husband and son’s moules were strangely over and under-cooked. Many couldn’t be opened and others were mushy. We were there for a Father’s Day meal but it was rather disappointing. Service was also slow - took 20 mins to clear our plates but they weren’t that busy. We were the only table in our section. Felt it was rather tired. Menus pretty scruffy. Won’t be rushing back which is a shame because we were returning after not going for a few years.

    Still a lovely restaurant. New shorter menu should be better but we were disappointed. Caesar salad was all lettuce with mozzarella instead of parmesan. Asparagus was small, over-priced and average. The restaurant was short-staffed (they at least told us) so service was slow. French service is part of Gazette's appeal but this time it was too slow and unresponsive. Overall disappointing.

    Sent under cooked (raw in some parts) salmon back and they in turn, pan fried into flakes and put back on plate; not what I expect from a restuarant and they still charged full fare. Good cocktails and bar staff; inexperienced waiter. Was sat right next to the culterly area in an empty restuarant, noisy and distracting. Overall OK.

    First visit to this location, second visit to Gazette. Ambiance at the Putney location is better. More quaint and cozy. Food was nice but wait was quite long for mains. Service was sporadic. Had to repeat order multiple times. Location is in newer part of Battersea being built up so there is nothing else in this area. Would be nicer in the summer when can sit outside. would come back.
