SquareMeal Review of L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon

Bronze Award


Like its neighbour The Ivy, this hotspot hides its interior from the gaze of casual passers-by, so there's a delicious sense of anticipation as you arrive. To begin, sip a chic aperitif in the bijou bar with its secluded rooftop terrace. Located on the first floor, the restaurant is the largest space (good for groups or business lunches), but we think the ground floor holds most appeal, with its shiny red stools and open kitchen dramatically framed by sleek black decor. Meticulously choreographed chefs can be seen preparing intricate multi-layered plates notable for their complex flavours and textures: a silky poached egg coated in crisp rice batter topped with caviar; juicy tiger prawn spun in vermicelli and laced with exotic lime and sumac; velvety hot foie gras with a ‘rolled heart’ of tangy green apple and hibiscus juice. Service never disappoints, and satisfied customers rightly deem the whole experience “excellent”.

Acceptional restaurant - I loved the entire experience; we had a wonderful sitting at the "bar" area overlooking the kitchen and it just heightened the experience;.

Went with visiting family. We were all impressed with the quality of the food. The service was outstanding. We felt they went above and beyond. Great value with set meal and a glass of champagne.

The partner I booked this for came back to me and said 'It was really awesome I would say one of the best meals I have had in London, though quite pricey'.

Had a fantastic time with my friends there. Sat next to the beautiful “garden wall”. Wow! The food was delicious and fabulously presented. Had the chocolate desolving dome. Lush! Would like to return some time again.

Always a reassurance
Whenever it is a Robuchon, there is always the reassurance. Enough said. “Go and try out for yourself if you still haven't done so!”

Although there are more economic options available we opted for the 8 course tasting menu with wine matching and were not disappointed. While undoubtedly pricey, the food was of an extremely high standard and the servers courteous, friendly and professional throughout. Other diners may prefer a more formal presentation but the style at Joel Robuchon worked well for our party. From the amuse bouche (foie gras, port reduction and parmesan foam) through to the end this experience was a delight. Highly recommended for a variety of occasions (romantic dinner, pre-theatre or relaxed weekend lunch).

The food is quite outstanding and entirely worthy of the 2 Michelin stars. Value of money amongst the global elite of restaurants is comparative and in this case, while not cheap, this is value for the money. To be able to watch the chef and his team on the ground floor L'Atelier is a privilege and you should ask to sit at the bar. Cannot fault it and now in my personal global Top 10 restaurants
