London's most authentic French Brasseries with 4 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.

    The restaurant was full and that impacted service as was maybe understaffed. The food was good, but ambience and service was not of the standard of their Battersea one.

    Best experience so far at Gazette, everything great from initial welcome to bill! We went for set two courses, vegetable/cheese starter delicious and lamb equally so. Were offered taste of two reds by glass and both good value and highly drinkable. Tarte Fine and Breizh to finish then coffee. Perfect 10!

    Went with some friends for an early evening meal. We ordered the cod and others had risotto. Food was presented and tasted well. With the doors pulled open it gave the restaurant an airy feel. Worth another visit.

    Delicious food and great, attentive service. We had a 2pm booking for lunch with only one other table occupied, hence the lower score for ambience, but other than that it was a lovely lunch and we will definitely return.

    Dreadful experience ~ poor service that came with bad attitude coupled with the worst steak. Both steaks were cooked incorrectly and one had more sinew than lean. The food was sent back, one steak was returned burnt to a crisp and the other the same piece of meat but a different shape. We left without eating ~ please don’t waste your money!

    I was a regular at its predecessor, Strada, but Gazette, Putney, is not my cup of tea. The location is uninspiring, choice of food is unexciting and service barely adequate. The branch in Battersea is much more appealing and livelier, in a more attractive location, but, unfortunately, less accessible.

    Is my second time here, great location for the locals. The main course I had was quite heavy handed with seasoning, but I waited for quite long and just ate it (the restaurant was busy). It is a good restaurant all in all. I might come back again, but not in a rush.

    We were there for Mother’s Day, table I booked months in advance was too small, although I booked for 5 adults. Service was slow, food was average but I sent my food gras back and the second one was still slightly undercooked. Bill was sky high I used to love this place but I will not go back there again.

    We visited on a Sunday afternoon, 12.30, and unfortunately, out of 4 meals ordered, they had run out of 3 of them. They kindly offered to replace the meals, matching the coat of the original. Service was very slow, but since it was a slow Sunday afternoon, that wasn’t a big problem. The food was good, but the ambience was unfortunately that of a lot of disgruntled customers who were maybe less forgiving of the wait times. I would not recommend Gazette on this occasion but have been there a number of times in Balham (now closed) and Wandsworth and really enjoyed.

    An extremely busy Saturday evening and as there was a party downstairs the kitchen could not cope adequately; thus service after the starters was very slow. Also the ventilation was not good and with so many diners this needs to be addressed. The food when it did arrive was very good and we will return!
