CLOSED FOR REFURBISHMENT UNTIL FEBRUARY 2019
Sheltered from Chelsea Embankment by cleverly planted greenery, this “gleaming” high-ceilinged brasserie remains airy despite all the smoke and sizzle emanating from the enormous charcoal grill at the heart of the dining room. Large windows let in plenty of light, and the mood is enhanced by sky-blue banquettes, mint-green paintwork and glittering chandeliers. The kitchen absorbs flavours from the French regions, so expect a roster of dishes ranging from Burgundy snails in garlic butter, Scallops Carpaccio with Citrus and Ginger or the traditional Beef Tartar served with home cut Chips – plus specialities from the aforementioned grill. Meanwhile, members of the Chelsea set get their fill of Espresso Martinis and glasses of bubbly in the chic upstairs ‘salon’. Prices aren’t cheap and the food can seem rather “heavy”, but there’s no arguing with the discreet location right by the river.

I hadn't heard of Cheyne Walk Brasserie when I was taken there so I had no expectations which I always think makes for a good review. It's in a nice location in Chelsea, away from the hustle and bustle of the King's Road and right on the river. Inside it feels very French and on a Saturday night it was busy and lively. There isn't a bar as such, but a room upstairs with seating for a pre dinner drink which was a nice start. The food was reasonably good (I had scallops then duck) but a little heavy (it's not often I'll not have a dessert!). The service was nothing to write home about, just adequate. Overall, the evening was fine but for the price I feel there are better French restaurants in London, I just wasn't inspired.
Had heard lots about Cheyne Walk Brasserie and finally decided to try it. While it was a pleasant enough experience, it did not really live up to expectation and we left feeling disappointed.
It is a nice old building in the backstreets of Chelsea. Was busy so there was a reasonable atmosphere but it felt a bit sterile. Not sure why but there is something about the layout and decor that is not very cosy or welcoming. However, I did like the open grill/barbeque area in the middle of the room and it was nice to actually see food being cooked and prepared there.
Menu had a good range of choices. The wine list was reasonable but not particularly inspiring.
Food itself was nice. Good ingredients and techniques delivered some tasty plates. It was pricey though and did not feel like value for money.
Service was efficient but relatively brusque. Not exactly unfriendly but lacking any warmth.
I doubt we will return.

This place used to be wonderful, now you are met by rude staff who hurry you along . The service however is awful. It took at least 45 minutes for our order to be taken. The crudite basket is lovely but our mai courses left a lot to be desired. The fish was limp and old and the meat chewy and tasteless. Mine was so bad I couldn't eat it and refused to be charged for it, even though they tried to keep it on the bill three times! Very overpriced and will not be going back.
