Excellent ServiceWonderful food, excellent customer service, early bird offer is good value.10/05/2013 00:00:00ExcellentCharlotte's Place is the perfect place for a real treat. Menu is inventive and delicious. I visit quite often and am never disappointed.09/05/2013 00:00:00Great little place! 2nd visitGreat little place! 2nd visit in two months and the food was equally as good as the first visit given the monthly change of menus. Great staff, nice laid back atmosphere and ambiance. Looking forward to the next visit sometime soon!27/04/2013 00:00:00This reataurant just gets betterI think the 1st time I ate here must have been within a couple years of it opening in the 1980's and it was like dining in someones sitting room; the food was good.
It was a long time before I returned, for no reason other than I just did not get around to it. I've been a few times now in the last 3 years; it is modern but comfortable and the food is just great. The early bird deal is good value and only requires that you sit down by 7pm and leave by 8.45, which is not that early. Excellent food.27/04/2013 00:00:00Great Value!We had the early evening menu with complementary aperitif. All food courses were delivered with attention to detail and without exception very fresh and full of flavour. only slight criticism would be prosecco and white wine not chilled enough. However, minor details! Value for money is outstanding. This restaurant is a great neighbourhood find.25/04/2013 00:00:00Another Excellent meal withAnother Excellent meal with great staff and amazing well priced wine list.20/04/2013 00:00:00TerrificCharlotte's Place was excellent.

Quite simply, the best £26 meal you will find anywhere
The dishes were well conceived, well prepared, well presented, and the tastes were just bursting out of everything. Service was a little over-attentive, but thats my own failing for not liking it....
What a divine pleasure.
HIGHLY recommended19/04/2013 00:00:00CHARLOTTE'S PLACE DOES IT AGAINThis was our third visit and it didn't disappoint. Our welcome was warm and friendly, our table was comfortable and the food was delicious. What more can I say?18/04/2013 00:00:00Lovely lunchAttentive service with some excellent advice about wine.15/04/2013 00:00:00Very pleasant restaurantStarters were presented beautifully. Mains cooked very nicely. Desserts sublime, especially the mango sorbet. Pleasant relaxing atmosphere.12/04/2013 00:00:00Ealing GemCharlotte's Place never fails to impress. Imaginative and delicious menu, friendly service, excellent value, lovely setting with views over Ealing Common - delightful! I have been a regular at Charlotte's for many years and look forward to many more years of enjoyment. We are so lucky to have this restaurant!!11/04/2013 00:00:00A gem of EalingI wish I had discovered the place earlier! Fantastic, high quality dinner, extensive wine list and very nice staff. I can highly recommend the fixed price early dining deal!10/04/2013 00:00:00a wonderful evening - amazing food!I had dinner at Charlotte's Place with my parents who had never been there before. They are still talking about the evening and the food! We loved the Smoked Salmon Scotch Egg, which was just delicious and refined. The pork belly was very tender and cooked very well, and came with beautiful cabbage. For dessert, we all tried different items, but all three of us were raving about our choices. The only downside was possibly the portion size, which was slightly too large, but we still finished it all as it was a shame not to eat! Wonderful view on the park, and pleassant relaxed environment and a restaurant with great service - I certainly recommend this restaurant!06/04/2013 00:00:00Consistently excellent foodReal attention to detail. fine ingredients and top-class cooking here, along with an excellent wine-list. It's a touch cramped, from the entrance-hall in which you brush past coats to the waiters who have to squeeze past you as you dine (after spending their days negotiating the narrow stairs). It doesn't quite have a homely feel, but it's relatively informal for a restaurant delivering such good quality. It never disappoints - and regularly delights. Really good value.05/04/2013 00:00:00Good choice for the right occassionMy husband and I recently had our first meal here, and we were not disappointed. Staff were extremely helpful - even phoning us before the booking to tell us of an offer we were not aware of, which we gladly took. The food is of a very high standard - it's probably just a notch down from haute cuisine fine dining, but much better than gastropub, many of which tend to charge similar prices these days for less quality. Healthy wine list, good solid menu with decent range to choose from. Meat, fish and poultry all clearly carefully chosen and fantastic desserts. Complimentary still or sparkling water made it a better experience.30/03/2013 00:00:00Great meal and evening as ever.The five of us had a reat evening> the fod and service were great and we were able to talk undisturbed.28/03/2013 00:00:00Yum Yum Yum!Another fabulous meal at Charlottes - thank you. The cod with oxtail is amazing and the decontructed crumble was a huge hit! Great wine list too and attentive serivce. The Early Diner option is a bargain!26/03/2013 00:00:00Memorable lunch at Charlottes PlaceDelighted to have discovered this restaurant just down the road. We were warmly welcomed, and the quality of food and drink was superb. The full menu was offered as a lunchtime set menu for just £20 for three courses, and all three courses for both of us were imaginatively conceived and delicious to eat, easily rivalling the food I would expect from a much more expensive restaurant. Portions were ample. The same menu at the dinner price of £30 is still great value. Our pre-lunch Bloody Marys and wine were excellent too. The house wine was £4.50 for 125ml, though a wider choice of wine by the glass would have been nice. We booked in advance for a weekday lunch, although there wasn't any need to on this occasion. Will definitely be returning!26/03/2013 00:00:00HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDI have visited Charlottes before with friends. I took my parents for the first time after rave reviews. They were incredibly impressed. It takes a lot to impress them. They loved the mix of tastes put together. The service was perfect as always. Well done kitchen and front of house staff.23/03/2013 00:00:00OutstandingAnother visit to Charlotte's, but this time in a small group. As always the quality of the food was excellent. I cannot recommend this small, friendly restaurant highly enough. I am looking forward to my next visit when the seasonal menu changes again.22/03/2013 00:00:00Innovative top quality foodWithout being silly, Charlotte's Place is creative, offering surprising or unusual combinations such as cod and oxtail, or pig's cheek with sausage roll. Excellent quality, and very pleasant and helpful staff. A decent wine list, the Clarets and Burgundies with typical restaurant mark-ups, but some interesting bargains elsewhere, I drank a Catalan red for £44, which the next day, at a business lunch in Jamie Oliver's City meat restaurant, Barbecoa, was priced at £70. exactly the same wine and vintage. I now eat here at least once a month.21/03/2013 00:00:00MEMORABLE LUNCHFrom the moment we arrived we felt cherished. We were greeted at the door by a lovely young lady who remembered us from our last visit of about a year ago! The food and service were superb and it was great value. We're going again very soon.21/03/2013 00:00:00EXCELLANT FOODExcellant food but I wish there was more VEGETARIAN options. It is my favourite restauant in our local area and I would visit more if not for the former.20/03/2013 00:00:00Lovely MeanOur meal was lovely and a double celebration of my Boyfriends birthday which then became our Engagement dinner.
The food was gorgeous and the wait staff very attentive.
We will definitely be back!!!19/03/2013 00:00:00What to do on a Sunday eveningWhat better than a relaxed meal with one's grown up children, even if dad has to pay! Always good food and well presented. I have awarded 4 stars as I prefer to eat upstairs, however for those who want a cosy hidden away assignation then the lower floor might suit their purpose.17/03/2013 00:00:0070th birthday mealCharlotte's Place was an ideal restaurant to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food and wine were absolutely
delicious. We were made to feel very special. Service was excellent.

The menu is great and the homely atmosphere, combined with the haute-cuisine makes it a memorable gastronomic experience.26/02/2013 00:00:00I feel very luck to have suchI feel very luck to have such a great resteraunt as my local. And because it is such good value for money I can afford to go on a regular basis.23/02/2013 00:00:00Nice but priceyIve been dining at Charlottes for over 15 years. While its lost some of its unique appeal, staff are very friendly and food is good, although the menu can be a bit limited. Wine selection is ok, but can be very expensive by the glass. Upstairs is nicer, but beware going in cold weather as it can be chilly by the windows and I have now picked up a cold from a recent trip!. I still miss Charlotte and the lovely steaks she used to serve but the staff are there to help and it's one of the few decent places to eat in Ealing.21/02/2013 00:00:00FabulousGreat welcome, knowledgable staff, wonderful food. Can't wait to have an excuse to go back.18/02/2013 00:00:00I was taken there for my birthdayI was taken there for my birthday recently and had a superb meal.The only negative was that the wait between courses was rather long.Otherwise excellent.17/02/2013 00:00:00I've been to Charlotte's PlaceI've been to Charlotte's Place a few times and the food has always been very good especially for Sunday lunch. The service is very personal and friendly so I would highly recommend it.17/02/2013 00:00:00Fabulous as alwaysCharlottes Place always surprises me - the quality of the food and service always seem too good for such a little, suburban restaurant. The experience is wonderful every time we come. The wine list is impressive but reasonable and the staff are knowledgeable. Highly recommended!17/02/2013 00:00:00Good lunch set menuDelicious! Service excellent. Had requested a window table but were offered a table in centre of restaurant. However as soon as I complained we were reseated elsewhere15/02/2013 00:00:00A gem on Ealing CommonVisited Charlotte's for the first time and was impressed.Nice warm greeting at the door with friendly and attentive staff to show to table etc.Lunch menu had several options for each course covering a good range of fish & meat dishes. Well paced service and the food was presented in a caring and appetising manner. Ample portions were both tasty and satisfying. Nice touch was to get complimentary bottled mineral water with the meal. A good first experience and one that will lead us to return again.14/02/2013 00:00:00Good serviceWe used this restaurant for my company's dinner party. Very good service so we felt confortable at any time. The general manager was satisfied with food, wine, and so on. Thank you very much.11/02/2013 00:00:00Superb restaurant in EalingOne of the best restaurants we're ever experienced in London - holds its head alongside (or even above) many of the more well-known high-end Central London restaurants. Amazing food, professional and friendly service. Can't wait to go back!10/02/2013 00:00:00Creative FoodWe're still talking about the crab ravioli, a few days later, so that's a good sign. Our other starters ans mains were excellent as well. Desserts were just 'good'. Lovely, friendly, attentive service and a pretty good atmosphere. And some very reasonable wine options. We'll be going back sometime.08/02/2013 00:00:00Something specialGreat food and service. Stylishly presented. Something special.08/02/2013 00:00:00The friendliness of the staff,The friendliness of the staff, wonderful service and consistently tasty food are well worth the visit. The wine list is great value and very interesting too and... the staff know their wines.02/02/2013 00:00:00A gem hidden away in ealing.A gem hidden away in ealing. Great service and the early bird menu is outstanding value and quality31/01/2013 16:00:00A Tastebud ExplosionThe chive butter sauce offset the crab ravioli to a tee & the pork/fennel sausage roll was a treat. Roast cod with oxtail was a match made in heaven. Exceptional food once again and a great bottle to match. The "early diner offer" is a good deal, but a bit rushed.31/01/2013 16:00:00Sunday DinnerSomething to look forward to and the end of the week. The Jerusalem artichoke soup was hearty, tasty, quite different from other tastes, delicious. Followed by a traditional Sunday roast, cooked to perfection. Had green kale as a side, which was light and tender, very well cooked.26/01/2013 16:00:00
