Soutine is an informal neighbourhood restaurant in St John’s Wood on the High Street, within close proximity to London Marylebone Station, Regent’s Park, Lord’s Cricket Ground and Madame Tussauds.
Taking inspiration from the great boulevard cafés of Paris, the restaurant offers relaxed and informal dining from early until late. The classic French bistro menus include classic French dishes such as Croque monsieur and Soupe à l'Oignon.
Soutine consists of a front room and pavement offering relaxed café and bar seating, leading to a slightly more formal space at the rear.

    Nice place, very good service. Our waiter was nice and make an extra effort to take a few pictures for me and my boyfriend as it was his birthday. Food was good and tasty. Nothing extraordinary but all tasted good and executed well.

    Felt very unwelcome. Waiters were polite but rather brusque and dismissive. Prices were higher than advertised and gratuity was added to the bill (even though we were a party of 2). Steak was fine and well cooked, but did not look much like a ribeye cut (although this may be due to what americans are used to). Hard to be specific but just felt like they didn't want us there.

    A midweek lunch outing. Warmly greeted at the door and promptly shown to our table. For me the best table in the restaurant. When we go again, I'll say, we want table... or we are not going !! The menu is an A3 laminated handout, no specials of the day but there is a good choice on offer. The fixed price menu is simple but adequate for a quick lunch, early theatre outing. I opted for Wild mushroom on Brioche (the sauce to pour over.. very special), my friend herrings again with a very special sauce. Mains one Beef Bourguignon, other an Omelette soufle. Both piping hot, excellent. For me the one missing offer was no green vegetables !! Strange ?? Waiter offered me lettuce !! I said no thanks. All in all a very good lunch, the food washed down with a bottle of Alligote and a couple of glasses of red Burgundy for me and by casserole dish !!

    Cricket day out at Lords with a trip out for lunch - just really special - great food, could have eaten everything on the menu. Had a barstool seat and the guys behind the bar worked like crazy to make sure everyone was well fed and watered - could not fault it!

    Very nice ambiance with good solid professional service. I tried Prix Fix lunch. The celeriac starter had too much mustard in my opinion and came without any bread. The main course fish was excellent with ratatouille. The tarte au citron was also very nice. The 15per cent service charge is higher than the London average. I will go again over all and will try a la carte.

    1) cooking for Ukraine +£1 it would be great if the waitress would tell us if we’d like to participate in it not just add it as a default. 2) 15% service charge is a bit excessive (normally in London it is 12,5%) 3) waitress could be more attentive and maybe more happy/smiley

    Well done keeping our wines within reach - excellent value by today's standards! Two points to make We had the special - roasted cod etc .I chose mine because of the attraction of broad beans and Jersey royal! Both were practically non existent. I spotted one bean on my play and the Jerseys were crushed - what a waste. This early in the season they should be served boiled and whole - crushing is for later ' new' potatoes, not early Jersey gems. M chocolate mousse was a disgrace. It reminded us of childhood nursery desserts - eg Angel Delight! It was sweet, over sugary and worse RUNNY - like a soup. What was even more disappointing was that i left 90 of it but the waiter did not enquire why this was the case. Nothing was said which left a very poor impression, hence this comment. Clearly no one cared and all they wanted was for us to leave. More attention to detail there - and a new recipe for a FRENCH chocolate mousse please
