I have been here to all type of occasions: romantic birthday celebration, business dinner for 10 people and most recently for a family lunch. It never fails to deliver great service with creative food in a very nice atmosphere. The food is always flawless and special. And the legendary mash potatoes are addictively delicious and epitomizes their cuisine: the ability... More

I love this place so much. Every time I am in London I have to have a meal here. Even though it has been a few years, the food was still great! The service was great! I wish it wasn't too crazy, or I would have gone twice!

We had been several times to Robuchon in Paris and were always very satisfied with the quality of food and service. Unfortunately, his London address does not live up to those standards. The same dishes were just nowhere as good as in Paris and the general atmosphere is not as cosy either. Fortunately there are so many outstanding restaurants to... More

Fish bone left in fish. Good ingredients, careless execution, disappointing handling by waiting staff.

Meeting up with an old work colleague from 'way back' had the set lunch with the primary purpose of catching up. Service was excellent - friendly, humourous, helpful, knowlegdable and made excellent recommendations. Gave us plenty of time and space to chat, we weren't hurried and the food was well paced, and completely delicious. Set lunch was fabulous - good... More

Starry-eyed would best describe our anticipation to dine in the hallowed halls of a Joel Robuchon establishment. This is the man that has been touted as the chef of the century and holder of 29 (or 30 or 31 but who's counting) Michelin stars. That is just plain otherworldly. Maybe it was the anticipation or the burning desire to love... More

A French restaurant but not a bistro or country restaurant .A very detailed approach to food .We did not sit at the counter ,which I think has advantages if less easy for a group to talk Perhaps what is most striking how different flavours stand out whether in the beef consommé ,or chestnut veloute. Certainly a place to bring someone... More

I used to go there quite often a few years back. The food and service were excellent. I love the concept, still do. But the quality of food and service degraded. I had not been in a while in the london restaurant. Went back last night as a walk in. They had space on a Saturday night... says it all.... More

Description
Drawing on Joel Robuchon's internationally renowned culinary expertise, already accredited with several Michelin Stars at restaurants throughout the world, L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon's philosophy is based on serving simple cuisine of the most exceptional quality. This London restaurant has been awarded Michelin Star, as well as 3 AA Rosettes, establishing it as one of the most exceptional places to dine in London. Robuchon's menu delights the palate with clean insightful flavours and refreshingly understated presentation. The dishes are predominantly French with Italian and Spanish influences. The dining experience at L'Atelier is an interactive one. On the ground floor, the eating counter surrounds the entire kitchen where the food is prepared. Robuchon sees the immediate benefit of this Japanese-inspired layout to chefs, as one can gauge the reaction of clients, and even converse with them whilst they watch their food being prepared. Unlike the sister restaurants in Paris and Tokyo, the London restaurant also has another 20 seats where diners can sit opposite each other. Meanwhile, La Cuisine on the first floor offers more traditional restaurant seating in a setting that could be likened to dining in the kitchen itself. Wherever you are seated you will enjoy the highest quality food in an informal, convivial environment. Valet parking is also available. Please note, last reservations are taken half an hour prior to closing time. Dress code: Smart Casual, shorts are not permitted.
