    A very quiet Sunday evening at Brasserie Blanc - I wanted a quiet dinner but this was like a chapel of rest. It was Easter Sunday! The staff were efficient and tried hard to be welcoming. The food was good if not outstanding and somewhat inconsistent with Monsieur Blanc’s well-earned culinary reputation -(albeit that this is a Brasserie not the hallowed Oxford property and restaurant). Wine list was uninspiring. Pricing and range of offerings was reasonable. I don’t wish to condemn the restaurant - and would not want to dissuade others from trying it out. RCP

    I haven't been to Brasserie Blanc in a while and was very happy to be back. I invited a colleague from the USA who was in London for a week and we had a delicious meal and a good chat. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and prompt, without being all over us. A lovely experience.

    An elegant and relaxed dining experience. Dined with my husband. Service was attentive which we especially appreciated since we live in America and service there is normally very attentive, sometimes overly so. We enjoyed our cocktail selections, shared an appetizer and dessert, went our own ways with mains. Husband had the fillet steak which was expertly cooked and declared “very flavorful “. I had the herbed gnocchi with mushrooms (a lot of mushrooms!) which was unlike any gnocchi I’ve ever had before. Was expecting a pasta made from potatoes (that’s gnocchi, right?) but got 6 small potato ‘pillows’ rolled in crumb and herbs and deep fried. The dish was tasty and not overly filling so I was content. The dining room is a little dark but not the darkest I’ve eaten in and there are noise dampening discs on the ceiling which kept the chatter confined to each table so that is a big plus in my book.

    We hadn't been here for a few years, so it was nice to be back. It's a perfect spot to meet friends when travelling from various locations - it's so handy for Waterloo station. The food was delicious as always, but the one difference we noticed was the service was a bit slow and not as attentive as it used to be. Our waiter was charming, but perhaps they are a bit understaffed?

    We ate here before a theatre visit and it was excellent. Friendly, helpful staff, great service, lovely atmosphere. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The poached pear for dessert was just delicious. We will definitely visit again and would certainly recommend a visit to Brasserie Blanc.

    The staff were very busy talking to each other so it was difficult to get their attention, but they were pleasant when they came. The food was indifferent to be honest. The ham hock starter was fatty and tasteless, with too much apple sauce. The smoked haddock fish cakes were better. But not a memorable meal at all. I ate in a BB in Leeds a couple of months ago. The food was better, but overall I don't recommend this chain. Its reputation runs ahead of its delivery.

    This is becoming our ‘usual place’ for the family Christmas get-together. It was just great. We buggered up the booking, which they sorted out with grace and good humour; an extra person arrived, which they dealt with without complaint and then the food and service were super! Polite, chatty and helpful and then, when we ere eating they left us to ourselves just checking up to make sure we were okay (and not pressurising us to buy more!) I love this place and recommend it highly enough. And then the bill was surprisingly reasonable for a lovely meal.

    Setting not up to standard expected for a Raymond Blancs restaurant however staff were lovely. Was very disappointed to find they had no fillet or chateaubriand even though it was only 7.30pm on a Saturday night. After a change of choice the food served was delicious.
