5th November 2012
I booked a late dinner (10:15pm) for myself and my girlfriend, as we were attending Phantom of the Opera in nearby Haymarket.
The show finished slightly late and, coupled with slight traffic we arrived at LDS a few minutes late.
This was no problem for the staff at LDS, who directed us to our seats in the center of the restraunt.
I had wanted to treat my girlfriend to a romantic French meal before “popping the question”.
LDS is the best French restraunt I have been to outside of France.
The staff were extremely attentive, both the water and wine glasses never becoming empty.
I had the steak, which was cooked to perfection and served with a delicious sauce. My girlfriend had the whole chicken, which she claimed was the best chicken she had eaten, although the generous portions were too much for her, though that is certainly a positive. I would say if top quality ingredients are used it certainly shows on the plate and palate.
LDS close at 11pm, however we were the last 2 diners and it was past closing when we left. With this in mind I had desert, the delicious lemon tart, but I passed on coffee due to the time.
The staff never made us feel rushed even though they wanted to close, and thanks to this excelent service I tipped over the optional service charge.
As for the question I popped, she said yes, making it easily the best meal I have ever had.
Highly recommended and we will definately be back again.
