Square Meal Review of Bob Bob Ricard ?

From business brokers to courting couples, everyone loves Bob Bob Ricard’s glamorous blend of ‘outstanding food’, fun ambience and ‘hugely decadent’ decor – a little bit Disney, a little bit Murder on the Orient Express. Efficient staff keep every gaudily kitsch surface buffed to a sheen and each velvet curtain tweaked just so, creating the illusion that you’ve stumbled down a brand-new Soho rabbit hole. The menu mixes international comfort food with Russian classics – think chateaubriand, lobster mac ‘n’ cheese or chicken and mushroom pie alongside caviar, pelmeni dumplings and smoky borscht, all beautifully cooked and presented. The competitively priced wine list pops some of the choicest corks in town, and with Champagne buttons on every table, it’s easy to be tempted: be prepared for what might be a shocking bill, although satisfied customers reckon it’s ‘worth every penny’.

  1. Organising this years couples dinner the pressure was on. Miss G used her membership and got us into the lovely Soho House last year and I decided to take up the role for 2013... I wanted somewhere we wouldn't easily think of going, somewhere a little bit random and somewhere definitely a little bit special... 'Press for Champagne' in each of the dining booths is all I knew of Bob Bob Ricard before my visit last week and what a great 'thing' to be known by. It immediately ooozes fun and glamour with only three small words and a button press away a waiter whisks over to your attention to take drinks orders... brilliant no more waiting!!...

    Munch My Way :: Bob Bob Ricard

    I’ve heard from many friends and food bloggers about this restaurant, Bob Bob Ricard.. Located right next to Carnaby Shopping St, serves a delicious selection of brasserie classics.. Due to the good time I had with the food and company.. I forgot to take the interior and restaurant window.. Oh well, just the food looks good enough!...

  3. After a matinee in the west end, a group of us decided a cocktail was in order before dinner. The west end is not somewhere I would choose to drink cocktails, too many places serve expensive premixed drinks in a crowded noisy environment. BBR I had been assured would not be like this. The entrance on the side of Beak street is reasonably unassuming, it is once the door is opened that the opulence and pretentiousness take over. A gaggle of waiter, receptionists and coat handlers meet you with the eponymous words ‘Do you have a reservation?’ it was 6 oclock and the place was pretty empty. After a quick look at the ipad it was determined we could have 2 seats at the bar and the other 2 would need to stand. When we were shown to the bar there was not a soul there, we were informed by the bartender that we could have all four seats ...

    Clandestine London :: Bob Bob Ricard, Golden Square

    Alabama was excited about this one. She’d been here before and she knew I’d like it. She wasn’t wrong. Located near a corner of Golden Square in London’s agency land, Bob Bob Ricard is a calmly lit art-deco restaurant with a stylish basement bar complete with plush intimate booths to conceal covert activity. Based on a 1920s train carriage design...

    vialaporte :: Bob Bob Ricard // Soho // London

    As you enter Bob Bob Ricard, you might feel like you’ve just entered Restaurant Prunier in Paris. Walking through the lobby, lavishly decorated with black marble, smooth brass, gold and shininess everywhere, waiters will take you to your table where you’ll be sat at some of the most beautiful booth banquettes in London, where you discover BBR’s now infamous Champagne buttons. Turquoise and pale pink, the colour scheme is in complete harmony...

    Ross eats :: Bob Bob Ricard

    Luxury; a word that used alongside a restaurant musters up visions of bankers splurging their monthly bonus up the wall, of people needlessly spending high prices on ‘rustic’ food, or, as it generally is for me the kind of place I take myself for the occasional pick me up, or for a reward for getting through a tough time. Their websites says that the ‘Bob Bob Ricard Menu offers luxury English and Russian classics’ and along the way I found it also provides a number of delightful quirks and, most important of all, some damn good plates of food...

    A Table For Two :: Bob Bob Ricard

    Open for lunch all the way to late dinner, Bob Bob Ricard is definitely a place to keep in mind if you’re looking to indulge, impress or just treat yourself at any time of the day. Do book ahead as weekends are particularly busy, however if you’re planning to snoop the place up before handing over your credit card, drop by Bobby’s Bar downstairs. Grab your suit jacket and high heels and enjoy a nightcap in style...

  9. After Hawksmoor, Bob Bob Ricard was a restaurant I had been wanting to visit for such a long time. And I mean really long, like two years long. Having been a regular in Bobby’s Bar for pre or post-dinner drinks at other establishments, I’d eye up the Russian/English combo menu and sigh. Bobby’s Bar became one of my favourite places in London, scratch that, anywhere. A place that I would bring loved ones and continually recommend to others. The most stunning space, think opulent Orient Express with a slight American diner feel. Dripping in brass, with marble and wood panelling, a red theme for downstairs and blue for up. The ‘press for champagne’ button at each restaurant booth sums the place up, it is like nowhere else in London, truly special. My most adored part is the downstairs area in the bar, dark and glistening with black cab style pull down seats. Just imagine if owners Leonid Shutov and Richard Howarth did hotels too…

  10. To the uninitiated a visit to Bob Bob Ricard in Soho is a bit like walking into one of those Carlsberg adverts, you know the ones about the Flat, the Hotel and the Bank. Well BBR is a Diner and if Carlsberg did Diners this would be it...
