First visit to Vacherin andFirst visit to Vacherin and will certainly be going back! excellent food, well presented, and good service.17/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely, romantic lunchEverything about the restaurant was terrific. The service was even more exceptional. We will return for certain.10/05/2013 00:00:00Classic French at its bestGreat deal witht the TopTable steak deal, beautiful steak, delicious starters, amuse-bouches and all the little extras with a nice french restaurant. The fig tart for dessert was nice but not great, but the rest of the meal more than made up for it (which is unusual for me to say as a dessert lover).
Service was very attentive but not obstrusive, and overall would certainly be very keen to go back.
The a la carte menu is fairly pricey, but probably worth it if the rest of the food is of the same quality that we had.05/05/2013 00:00:00One of the best steaks I haveOne of the best steaks I have ever had. Great quality meat, perfectly cooked02/05/2013 00:00:00FantasticThis was my first visit to the Vacherin, I've always been keen to visit in the past. It lived up to expectations, the service was to die for - very friendly and attentive. 5****! The steak was delicious also, great value for money. Will definitely be visiting again. Thank you for a fantastic evening!30/04/2013 00:00:00The steak deal is amazingThe steak deal is amazing as you normally need to spend a lot of money to get a decent cut. The wine list is extensive and the desserts are delicious. Even with extra courses and wine its great value for money for the quality you get.
The service is impeccable and it feels like you are fine dining but without the price.
Its a great local restaurant to have and I would highly recommend it.25/04/2013 00:00:00FabulousA hidden gem in Chiswick. Food is cooked to perfection and the service is attentive and friendly.
We have been for lunch on a Sunday and dinner mid week and had a great time on both occasions.23/04/2013 00:00:00FabulousWe went to Le Vacherin for a girl's night out on a Saturday evening. The atmosphere was lovely, and importantly it wasn't too loud - as much as we love it we sometimes find High Road House uncomfortably noisy. Food was really good. We used the Top Table offer, which offered a varied menu and was very good value.20/04/2013 00:00:00Great steak and wine dinnerLe Vacherin has a warm and pleasant atmosphere in Chiswick and great food. It's easy to get to by public transport and park if you are driving. Often there are great value offers in top table, like the steak and wine dinner for £12. The service is sometimes rather cold, but was excellent during our last visit. Will come back for sure.15/04/2013 00:00:00Le Vacherin, ChiswickAs ever the service was meticulous. We were eating from the set menu which had a wide choice. Starting with a delicious cheese souffle, followed by a generous piece of trout. i finished with a selection from a fabulous cheese board. my husband had a rich daube and the mouthwatering chocolate pud.
A lovely evening, presented to the highest standard. The ambience was better in the other room, but it was ok where we were.
Yes we will go again.13/04/2013 00:00:00Amazing!!!!!We've celebrated my boyfriend's 40th birthday, it was amazing. The service is spotless, food is very well presented, amazing flavours. Highly recommended and definitelly coming back!!11/04/2013 00:00:00Toptable offer makes thisToptable offer makes this a very affordable luxury evening out06/04/2013 00:00:00great valueWe had the 3 course top table menu, which was great value for money. All the food was delicious, and staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Only criticism would be that tables a bit too close together03/04/2013 00:00:00Fantastic offer through toptable...three courses, glass of fizz for £25 is always going to be great in London. When the quality of the menu and food are like this, then it has to be outstanding. Good breadth of options despite being on a set menu... btw, the full menu looked pretty awesome as well!27/03/2013 00:00:00Good all roundVisited Le Vacherin on Sunday...
Good As always - a reliable local restaurant - pleasantly busy, attentive staff, good food, always a pleasure - we are regulars who dine out in all the top London restaurants & if one is looking for something not too stuffy , but with high calibre service & food in chiswick or west London, then this is the place ,never fails !24/03/2013 00:00:00DinnerWelcoming atmosphere and delicious food. Will come again!23/03/2013 00:00:00good night outI went to Le Vacherin for a toptable offer meal. The meal was lovely (the duck confit too salty however), apart from this though everything was perfect really great. I would love to go again.20/03/2013 00:00:00Special Tasty Eating ExperienceVery pleasantly surprised by the appearance of La Vacherin when arrived, the immediate ambience, warm welcome from the front door to where we were seated, eventhough very busy we were made feel special. Having Gluten intolerances I get very embarrassed @ a new restaurant to explain my problem & was so pleased to be treated normally, not like I was an inconvenience plus they already had lovely home made gluten free bread. As foodies everything we ordered was "tasty tingling on my taste buds" & over the moon I showed it. Jimbo, very impressed he made another booking for Sat 30/03/13 & can't wait! The attention to detail & staff was warm and natural. Can't wait to go again!16/03/2013 00:00:00Had a wonderful long a lunchHad a wonderful long a lunch on Friday and will definably be back.. thank you for letting us stay so long x15/03/2013 00:00:00Le Vacherin 3 courses £25Had a lovely dinner at le Vacherin, with the 3 courses for £25 offer. It was a great deal and the food was really good. Will return.15/03/2013 00:00:00Perfect for a special occasionPerfect for a special occasion or indulgent evening out with the comfort of a local restaurant, Le Vacherin ticked all the boxes. Great value on the toptable menu.09/03/2013 00:00:00Good time was had by ALLFriendly atmosphere
Good service and helpful
lovely to see Malcolm'swarm welcome
Good food03/03/2013 00:00:00Top in ChiswickHaving read a few sketchy reviews on here we were somewhat skeptical given we were celebrating a Birthday, but having made a split decision between this and La Trompette, we were not disappointed, Le Vacherin far exceeded expectations! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was second to none, as well as being extremely friendly. We will not hesitate to return!27/02/2013 00:00:00Lovely meal & all round experienceWe had the toptable 3 courses and glass of fizz for £25 which turned out to be excellent value! It was a Monday night and we were the first in the restaurant at 7pm which we thought was a shame to begin with but was actually fine. We took a window seat and after the attentive but not overbearing service settled into a very pleasant evening.
We did have to mention that we'd booked through TT for that menu, which was no trouble but just as a warning to others.
We had soufflé, escargot, sirloin steak for main and chocolate fondant for pudding. All delicious, although I probably wouldn't order the steak again - although tasty, I think they might reserve the best for the main menu.
All in all very good and I would certainly recommend it!11/02/2013 00:00:00Celebratory mealWe had never been to this restaurant before but were made very welcome.We were there at lunch-time. Service was attentive throughout and the food was delicious.We were served an amuse bouche, a deicious soup with roquefore cheese. We then both chose twice baked cheese souffle and then Confit of duck. We thoroughly enjoyed both dishes. The wine list also had a wide variety of choice In terms of price and wine.Overall it was a good experience in our view.06/02/2013 00:00:00Definately recommendedI would definately dine here again. The service and food were faultless. Thoroughly recommended.05/02/2013 00:00:00More than just cheese5 for Sunday lunch [2 returning for 4th time]. Good choice on menu, including Sunday roast. I would've liked my roast more 'oven-hot' than 'room temperature' but amuse-bouche, starters and other mains as well as accompanying veg were all served hot and portions were good. Service was impeccable. Disappointing that 2 wines chosen by the carafe were not available, especially as I'd chosen and drunk them recently.26/01/2013 16:00:00thought this was a very goodthought this was a very good all round restaurant. Good service and good food. Would go back25/01/2013 16:00:00Almost on our doorstep, andAlmost on our doorstep, and always meaning to go but didn't get. Delighted we managed to get organised and enjoy their 3 course top table menu on Saturday lunchtime. This menu had a range of interesting dishes to choose from. Everything that arrived: the bread (plus flavoured & plain butter), amuse bouche, mains and desserts were all delicious. Staff were very attentive and friendly and the place had a happy relaxed atmosphere. It was half full, with just a gentle hum of others chatting and enjoying themselves. Well worth returning to again and again!25/01/2013 16:00:00Enjoyable evening, delicious foodThe three course toptable menu was well put together and le cremant was delicious. It soon got very busy and the service slipped a bit but overall had a very enjoyable evening.24/01/2013 16:00:00The Toptable menu gave excellentThe Toptable menu gave excellent value for money. We had a superb meal.
Choice on the special menu was appreciated.23/01/2013 00:00:00Nice eveningWe ate here midweek on a Toptable offer of £25 for 3 courses incl. a glass of fizz. The restaurant was smart, warm & inviting - just right for a cold winter's night. Starters of cheese souffle & French onion soup were very good and steak main courses were perfectly cooked and delicious. We opted for ice creams and sorbets for pudding which were unexceptional but ok. A carafe of south American Merlot was well priced and very drinkable. Service was nicely paced and reasonably attentive - all in all a very pleasant evening and good value.21/01/2013 16:00:00Delicious French food in ChiswickWe booked a great deal with a set 3-course menu and were very pleased. The restaurant was very full but service was still impeccable and we did not have to wait too long for our food. The tarte tatin was particularly special.18/01/2013 16:00:00Pleasant surpriseReally lovely evening. We had the 3 course & drink for £25 deal and it was excellent value for money. Portion sizes and flavour of food were excellent, ambience was great and service was very friendly. The only slight disappointment was the speed of service. We were there for a while, which given the pleasant ambience was not a big issue,but if you visit be prepared for a long meal (2-2.5 hours)! Overall though, I'd definitely go back and would recommend to friends.14/01/2013 16:00:00Our favourite restaurantWe really love going to Le Vacherin, it is our favourite restaurant.
Very often we take friends and family here and they are all always very impressed.
This time we went with family coming all the way from Hong Kong and wanted to make sure that they have a great time and great food. Le Vacherin always has great food and wines14/01/2013 00:00:00Excellent service and veryExcellent service and very good food in a nice atmosphere. Recommended.12/01/2013 16:00:00Excellent food and atmosphereWe booked a 3-course meal with glass of sparkling wine for £25 at Le Vacherin in Chiswick, London, for two people on Friday night. We had been there before when they had an outstanding £10 steak+wine deal. The quality of the food is exceptional and, when these deals are available, very good value. The souffle, roast duck and creme brulee were excellent. The service is professional, and generally friendly but sometimes unecessarily formal in my opinion. I highly reccommend this place for a refined evening meal and special occasion.10/01/2013 16:00:00Outstanding ServiceThey say that first impressions count and the delightful young lady that welcomed me as I walked into the restaurant set the bench mark very high. I cannot fault this restaurant in any way and as someone who eats out regularly I must say that it was well worth the trip out to Chiswick and some of the better known restaurants that I have eaten in could learn more than a few things from Malcolm John and the team at Le Vacherin. The food was exquisite and excellent very god value for money, the service outstanding and the ambience perfect for a romantic evening or a business dinner. I will defintiely be returning.08/01/2013 16:00:00High quality French food.High quality French food. Very welcoming service, the Top Table menus arrived with the glasses of Cremant de Bourgogne which came as part of the £25 menu. The restaurant was full and buzzy which may have accounted for the slightly slow arrival of our food.04/01/2013 16:00:00le vacherinThe atmosphere has changed here since the arrival of new maitre de - for better.in addition to the excellent food the staff are more relaxed and there is now a warmth that was missing previously. The to table deals ate such excellent value and there is no scrimping on portions or variety. What a winner!02/01/2013 16:00:00More than just a cheeseXmas Day set lunch; so much choice in each course we could have dined every day til NYE without repeating the same dishes. Mains of venison and monkfish were both delicious and the accompaniments were substantial. Wines by the carafe are available with enough range to tempt most diners. With amuse-bouches and petit-fours............and no cooking or washing-up....... this represented good value. The service was extremely good and the decorations contributed to a warm, seasonal ambience. Deservedly, it was almost full. Highly recommended................tho' don't wait til next Christmas before trying it.24/12/2012 16:00:00An oldie but a goodieI was looking for a West London restaurant for a group dinner, age range 26 - 56. Having tired of all the usual Notting Hill haunts we thought we would give Le Vacherin a go as the reviews were good. We were very glad we did - it was excellent. The choice and quality of food were very good, the ambiance was lovely and the service was faultless. I would go again.17/12/2012 16:00:00Another great dinner at Le VacherinWe really love going to Le Vacherin, it is our favourite restaurant.

This time was no difference, we had great food and great drinks at incredible value
We really love the service by Marco who loves his guests and goes to great lengths to make them happy.19/09/2012 00:00:00Evening mealWe had a fantastic evening meal at Le Vacherin. Very good value for money on the toptable offer, including a glass of bubbly.
Sunday lunch is also highly recommended.07/07/2012 00:00:00Generous portions and great vfmThe food was really good quality and a good selection of options on the top table menu (3 courses for £25 including a glass of sparkling wine!)
I dined with a friend on a Thursday evening and for us the ambience was great - not too quiet but not too loud - perfect for chatting!
The only thing I would criticise is the overly attentive service! I am all for attentive service but it was a bit annoying when every time we started to chat another waiter would turn up to pour warer/ wine/ ask if all was ok etc etc....
Overall a very positive experience and I would definitely go back!!24/05/2012 00:00:00A most enjoyable evening.A most enjoyable evening.
