Squaremeal Review of Restaurant Gordon Ramsay ?

Hall of FameSome 18 years down the line, readers are still deeply, madly in love with Gordon Ramsay's three-Michelin-starred Chelsea flagship: "the best meal I have ever had in a restaurant", exclaims one fan, and we know what he means. "Grand" interiors, supremely polished service, a breathtaking wine list and the devoted attentions of master orchestrator Jean-Claude Breton ensure that this is top-end dining at its silky best, while the kitchen's brilliant craftsmanship has kept the menu firmly in London's vanguard – witness an amuse bouche of verdant, herb-infused ricotta topped with beautiful nasturtium leaves and radishes or a glorious peppermint soufflé with bitter chocolate sorbet. Pitch-perfect renditions of Ramsay's signature dishes also have their say (the legendary ravioli of lobster, langoustine and salmon, for example), and are joined by new ideas such as meaty halibut perched on crab and cauliflower couscous with a delicate ras el hanout-infused broth. Although chef patron Clare Smyth stepped out of the kitchen in 2016 to set up her own restaurant in Notting Hill (with Ramsay's backing), head chef Matt Abe remains – so you can expect more of the same from this peerless London aristocrat.

"Oh my God"

by   bronze reviewer (8)

Jun 2017

The fact that my dining companions most used words and phrases during our dining experience was either "Oh my God!" or "Oh wow!" should tell you all you need to know about this restaurant, and let me tell you, she's not wrong! It was my second visit here, I'd been two years prior and it was a welcome return to hands down the best restaurant in London, but it was my friends first time. In fact she'd only started on her "Michelin dining experience" earlier...

Disappointing experience

by   (1)

Nov 2016

This is a long story but if you don’t want to be an innocent culprit of the cancellation policy in Restaurant Gordon Ramsey, you’d better not to miss it. This was happened in July this year. But I was only able to take time to write this after I received my bank record in September and a couple of business trips were over in the last 2 months. On 11 July 2016, I visited Gordon Ramsey at 68 Royal Hospital Road, London SW3 4HP ("Gordon Ramsay") with my family. Prior to our reservation...

Best dining experience in London, period

by   gold reviewer (47)

Sep 2015

Editor's pick The review title says it all and I'm really not exaggerating. Everything is absolutely faultless. The restaurant itself really surprised me - it's tiny! It almost felt like someone's front room. It really adds to the feeling that you're somewhere special and in for a treat. The whole evening felt effortless - they knew it was my birthday so brought Champagne straight away and subsequently everything was flawlessly paced and presented. To start I had the lobster ravioli...

We are regulars here, and without exception have always experienced the best service with a smile and a chat, food and wines; the sommelier is simply the best in London. Once you've eaten here a few times, why go anywhere else – it just doesn't compare. We go now for New Year's eve which is just sublime. Keep up the good work Team Ramsay.

A few changes, but in essence as good as ever.

by   platinum reviewer (95)

Sep 2013

Editor's pick We've been eating at these premises since Pierre Koffman had his smallest version of Tante Claire, and over 15 years Gordon Ramsay's restaurant has proved a worthy successor. It has long been our “favourite” – at worst first amongst equals -and has been reserved for birthdays or anniversaries, for the two of us, and sometimes our family or friends. But in the past year or so, things have changed a bit in London, and this sort of fairly formal modern European cooking and presentation may not be...

Jul 2013

To admit upfront I'm not a GR fan at all, rather the contrary as he is the example of a great chef going way over the top, mass merchandise himself and completely loosing focus and as result quality. Having said that, for quite some time he is no longer cooking here anyway (probably and arguably for the better) and the food is amazing. Very attentative service with a tiny setting with just a few tables. You'll be treated to high-end top haute cuisine. No experimental or innovative touches but extremely...

This is without a doubt the best restaurant i have ever been to. The only problem is that the quality of food and service spoils you for anything else. My daughter and I could probably described as “foodies” but when you have had the best, forget the rest. One or even two Micheline stars is not good enough any more. If you go anywhere else and pay £100/£200 for dinner this place is a bargain. What price perfection? It is expensive but so is a Chanel handbag.

My first time dining at Gordon Ramsay’s signature restaurant to celebrate (?) my 40th birthday – incidentally it’s depressing, if clever, to see that I’ve now automatically become a ‘40’s male’ on Square Meal when only a couple of days ago I was happily a ‘30’s male’ – and it was an amazing, if costly, treat. Clearly the venue comes lauded with praise from most who dine there, and its one of only 4 in the UK with the maximum 3 stars from Michelin and it’s the first time I’ve managed to attend one...

Editor's pick Best restaurant in London but I have only been able to afford this three times in my life, so it is a very special treat. What I love is the Maitre d' Jean-Claude Breton make's you feel like you are a regular and you are treated the same as the man with the Bentley and the ladies with the rocks if not better as he seems to know it really is a special treat. My other half loves the fact he always gets to the bathrooms before him to open the door and has never missed, nice little touches. Boxed chocolates...

I have never had such great service and yet enjoyed it so little. There are almost as many staff as diners here, and they do what they have to to get their stars. But it is all so insincere – words such as obsequious and fawning spring to mind. It would have been great to just once feel as though you were getting a little bit of someone's own personality, but personality seems to have been banned. The food is fine, it is good cooking no doubt, but compared to many other places in London it lacks...

    I think this blog is no stranger to Gordon Ramsay chains, having reviewed Maze, and Savoy Grill (and an upcoming post on Bread Street Kitchen). Gordon Ramsay Restaurant is deemed to be one of the best, if not, the best restaurant to serve quality dishes represented by its 3 Michelin star rating. Expect prices to be as high as Mount Fuji but quality, plating, service to be at the highest standard. Clare Smyth, made Head Chef is the first and only female chef to run a 3* restaurant. (Also made partner of the GR group 2013.)

    It first achieved it’s Michelin rating in 2001 having opened as Ramsay’s sole restaurant...
