La Trompette

I went here for the umpteenth time yesterday for lunch and the food was, as usual, spectacular. I took a foodie friend who had never been before and he was very impressed. We both had pate to start, which was sublime. The main courses were fantastic - my lamb was cooked to perfection and my friend's halibut was equally well prepared. The cheese board is simply the best, and the wines that were suggested by the sommelier were heavenly. The staff are extremely attentive and helpful. I don't know why I bother eating elsewhere in West London!!

The Grange Pub and Dining Room

I went to this pub for the first time this summer, and have been back several times since. This is simply one of the best gastro pubs that I have been to. The food is well prepared by skilled chefs in an open kitchen. The portions are generous and are not at all overpriced. The staff are really friendly and helpful; the atmosphere is great. What more can I say other than the fact that I would strongly recommend a visit to this pub!

Maroush III

I have been to almost all the Maroush restaurants in London - the food is always fantastic and this restaurant is no exception. I was brought up on this cuisine - my fiance (who had not really eaten this type of food before he met me) is a massive fan too, thanks to Maroush. The meat is so incredibly tender; the mezze is extremely tasty and varied. Everything is freshly prepared and well presented. I would strongly recommend a visit to this restaurant - you won't be disappointed!

The Evangelist

I work close to the Evangelist and have been here many times for lunch and for evening drinks. The food is very good - it is fresh and well prepared in an open kitchen (not what one might expect from what is essentially a trendy bar). The menu is varied and it seems to please everyone in my office when we all lunch together. The service can, however, be a bit hit and miss. In particular, there is one waiter who seems to sleep walk and is, therefore, prone to make mistakes. Apart from the one fly (or should I say waiter) in the ointment, I would recommend this bar/restaurant to anyone in the vicinity.

Bertorelli (Charlotte St)

The food is at best average and the service is below average. My friend likes it (due to the sliding doors connection)-as I haven't seen her in ages, I thought I would try to book a table here for dinner. When I rang to make a reservation I was kept on hold for ages. I told the lady that I wanted a reservation for Sunday and, after she repeated my request for a reservation and put me on hold umpteen times, she eventually remembered that they are closed on Sundays!!!!! Never again (not even for a friend!).

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

My partner took me here for our anniversary and it was by far our best dining experience ever. The food was absolutely sublime and the service was impeccable. The staff were informed that it was our anniversary and they made the evening very special (one of the waiters even sang "'appy anniversaire monsieur et madame" to us!). I hope to be taken back to this restaurant for our anniversary every year.

Blah Blah Blah

Fantastic restaurant - my veggie friends adore it (they normally get stuck with pasta in a lot of restaurants). I am a meat eater but I could easily convert to being vegetarian if I could eat food like this everyday! It is great that you can bring your own wine too (a 'rule' that I quite like) and, after a few, you can even deface the table cloth with the crayons provided!

Ming Court

Having eaten in many Chinese restaurants in London, I must say that this is simply the best. The food is sublime and the service is impeccable. I would strongly recommend a visit to this restaurant to any lover of Chinese food!
