SquareMeal Review of Le Garrick

Bronze Award

Oozing Gallic character, this candlelit basement feels worlds away from the West End – though vintage theatrical flyers and the obligatory set menu (£13.50/16.45 for two/three courses) put you firmly in Theatreland. Reasonable prices (especially for the area) are a reminder that this is not French fine dining, instead expect a roll-call of bistro favourites and hearty classics, from moules marinière and pâté de maison to boeuf Bourguignon, confit duck and entrecôte with sauce au poivre. On our last visit, garlicky escargots made a great start, followed by a robust Toulouse cassoulet and rich boudin noir on a bed of creamy mash. Washed down with a quaffable bottle from the all-French wine list, and with a cheeky pot au chocolate or cheese to follow, this is comfort food par excellence. Convivial service adds to the appeal.

Popped in here for a late drink and ended up having supper and some very good Provence Rose wine, the staff were very entertaining and attentive without being in your face, good value as well, we were in the basement and i was surprised that it didn't feel cramped in anyway.

A unique little restaurant - booking definitely advisable and sit downstairs where there are lots of little alcoves and nooks. Traditional French style food and excellent service. Will return.

Like entering into a real French Brasserie. Classic French dishes, service you can't fault and you always leave with a smile on your face. Perfect for a date!

The best team with amazing service, cosy booths, french food and a fabulous french wine list. 30 years this year so must be doing something right!

Enjoyed my meal, very tasty. However, I love the basement area where you can sit in a secluded area without having to see other diners. It is private and cosy. I am not a romantic sort but I really like the privacy this restaurant offers. I hate being in other restaurants where you had to sit so close to other diners and see their faces and expressions. The staff at Le Garrick were very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely come back for sure.

Merci pour un diner vraiment agreable. Tout est cuisine a la perfection, plein de saveurs et de coeur! Ma poule au pot ressemblait tant a celle de ma grand mere que j' ai eu un petit moment de nostalgie delicieux..l'onglet de mon homme etait divin..Un vrai bon repas rempli de "hhmmmm, c'est bon!" La demoiselle qui nous a servi est acceuillante, drole et bien informee.

Great Service - Poor food
19 November 2015  
When my friend and I entered we received a great welcome. We had chosen a mid-week afternoon (tues 17/9/2015) to ensure a table. We chose Le Garrick because of a good review. The waiting staff were great, attentive and professionally friendly. We ordered two Bellinis to start. It was FLAT! and at £7.95 each - a miserable disappointment. My friend ordered Onion Soup - what a disappointment - sitting opposite her I could smell the pungent Oxo cubes that had been added to this classic french soup. For the mains my friend, having lost her appetite because of the awful taste of the soup which she did not continue with after the 3rd mouthful, went for a safe Rainbow Trout. I ordered something equally safe, Entrecote Steak with Pepper Sauce. What a disappointment. My steak which I was told would be grilled - that grill must have been broken for the beef tasted of warm tasteless scum water. Really Awful. The pepper sauce had no taste whatsoever. Terrible. I did not risk a dessert but my friend did which she enjoyed. I complained about the flat Bellinis and as a show of apology the dessert (not the Bellinis which were more expensive than the single dessert) was taken off the bill. The total bill, including the bottle of wine came to £75.05. When we first arrived there we both declared we would tell our friends about this interesting cellar restaurant. BUT after suffering the food we would definitely not recommend it. In fact we would tell our friends not to. The chef was definitely not a French chef. Whoever 'cooked' our meal should be ashamed. Having read all the other great reviews we have to ask ourselves why we had such a disappointing meal. Signed. Fran & Helen 2 very disappointed women. :-( P.S. I have since been told that the original owners had sold and Le Garrick now has new owners. Oh dear you've let the orignal owners and it's reputation go down the tubes.
