Avoid. Shoddy, slapdash service: disinterested, disengaged & hugely disappointing. Les Deux Salons is authentically Parisian in terms of its complacement, soul-sapping service. This so-laidback-it's-insulting approach means I can't comment upon this establishment's culinary delivery. I booked a table mid-week for 2.15pm. I arrived on time and was seated immediately. I chose my order within minutes, but wasn't asked for it. I was able to order an aperitif at 2.25, and it arrived around five minutes later, but my ‘waiter’ moved on so quickly I wasn't able to place my food order. By 2.40, I had finished my drink but was yet to be asked for my order. The ‘waiting’ staff milled around, clinking crockery and chattering to each other, but nicely avoiding any customer eye contact. After waiting 25 minutes for service, I managed to attract attention and finally placed my food order. I was then told that my choice was unavailable, although this fact hadn't been pointed out when I was seated and handed the not overly-extended menu. I decided to leave, but not before I was asked to pay for my aperitif. There are thousands of restaurants in London more worthy of my, and your, custom. Forget, even if I can't forgive, this one.
