A word from Petrus
Petrus' modern French menu combines classic flavours with exquisite presentation. Guests can choose from 500 wines expertly guided by the Head Sommelier. The modern, light interiors of Pétrus have been designed by the acclaimed Russell Sage Studio, who have used a gentle palette of oyster, soft silver and copper tints, as well as dashes of the famous Pétrus claret red throughout the room. Up to six guests can sit at the Pétrus Chef's Table for an unparalleled view of all the action in the kitchen.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Starter, not up to the mark; I've had better scallops in restaurants without stars. Main dish, sole, was fine. Desert was fabulous. They staff was nice. All in alll a good but not great dinner. "
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "Bueniiisimo todo. Es un restaurante espectacular, eso sí caro, nosotros pedimos el "lunch menu" por 35 libras pero nos mereció la pena. Repetiríamos para otra ocasion especial. El servicio muy bueno."
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "Booked lunch Good Friday food was excellent and nice little surprises between courses Spent 3 hours just the two of us and the time flew by means we were more than happy At the end we were invited to the kitchens which was a nice touch no one else were I guess the wine waiter liked us Apart from the food being excellent some great wines and had a lovely Louis X111 Remy with our coffee bit pricey but worth every penny Never had a bad meal at any Gordon Ramsey Restaurant possible Royal Hospital road a tad better for service but certainly would recommend For the experience Gordon's places def better than Heston !!"
    dined on 18/04/2014
  • "We had a marvellous time at Petrus. The food was just outstanding (including all the extra's!) The whole experience exceeded my expectations, from the michelin star food, the very attentive service and the ambience of the restaurant. Can't wait to go back again! "
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "The food was served well - both the aesthetics and the taste. The service was good."
    dined on 15/04/2014
  • "This was my second lunchtime visit to Petrus. The food and service was fantastic. Expensive, but fantastic. Extremely highly recommended!"
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "We went just for a bit of nice food. So we had the tasting menu, the food was ok but not to what you expect from a Gordon Ramsay restarurant. Food looks great but to me it is more about look and complication than taste itself. But service is great , i mean better than what you could think from top end restarurant."
    dined on 14/04/2014
  • "My only disappointment in the meal was that it took a rather long time to get through three courses. The time in between each course was a too long where the customer was left just sitting and waiting. It took us about 3.5 hours to get through a three course meal. It made for a long and late evening. It is unnecessary to have such long gaps and lay time between each course. It was a bit frustrating and made it difficult to enjoy the food as we got restless between each course."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "A real special restaurant with an outstanding service and every detail is cures in every little particular."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "This is the third time we have been to Petrus and it never fails to impress. The food is really goog and good value although the drinks are a little on the expensive side. The moly minor reservation on this occasion was the presence of young children some of whom were not well controlled by their parents."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "The Petrus experience has been amazing. The food is delicious and very well showed, all the team is totally kind and works to make the dinner a moment to be reminded for a long time. I have loved the leeks with trouffles, the skate and the white chocolate parfait, morover the scenic special effect of the chocolare sphere. The price is high but correct compared with the food and service that the restaurant offers."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "Exceptional food, full of little surprises and a tour of the kitchen at the end. brilliant service. All the staff were very friendly. I bought this for my wife's Xmas present and she said it was the best she had ever had."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "The was outstanding, but what really did it for us was all the little surprises and these small tasters that we got in between our meals. We had the three course meal but ended up with around 6-7. We had read about this dessert called "the chocolate sphere" and we know now what the fuss was about! Don't leave without trying that."
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "The lunch menu at £35 is great value I have been several times and never disappointed. The staff are lovely, attentive and helpful and the food is always fantastic."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "We decided to try Petrus for our 25th wedding anniversary and we are so glad we did. From the moment we walked in we felt we had our own personal attendant and never felt we had to share him with another table. The food was simply amazing, from the delicious bread to the gorgeous desserts. At the end of the meal the chef sent a special treat to us as a way of saying happy anniversary...it was very special to us as it was white chocolate and we had shavings of white chocolate on our wedding cake so it was the perfect finishing touch to a beautiful meal and a special evening. We would definitely recommend Petrus."
    dined on 07/04/2014
  • "I took my best friend to Petrus for a belated birthday celebration gift. We entered and were met by 2 persons, 1 who greeted us graciously, the other to take our coats. We were escorted to our seats and the event began as if being at the theatre. Each course was presented lovingly with an anticipation of hope that we would enjoy our respective courses. The interaction between us and the staff was light and refreshing. We were allowed to take our times during each course to talk and enjoy the moment, at no time feeling rushed. We ended our time the same way we entered; with a feeling of thank you, "come again" and wishes of a nice afternoon. It was slightly expensive, but oh did we enjoy ourselves! We will be going again."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "First but not our last visit to this amazing restaurant. You are spoilt from the moment you arrive, the attention to detail is wonderful, the service just so but discreet and the food will totally blow you away. My wife and I opted for the tasting menu and the accompanying flight of wines - don't be put off by the extra cost as you get to drink some fine wines which are expertly matched to your menu, each wine is introduced and explained and the added touch of individually printed menus detailing the wines was a very nice touch. What would I recommend? Easy! If you enjoy excellent food, fine wine and superb service simple get yourself down there now!! Would we go back? Flipping right we would!!"
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Simply amazing! Topped off by a visit to the kitchen to meet the head chef! Perfect for special occasions."
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "Fine dining at its best! We were treated well from the moment we stepped through the door on our first visit here for lunch mid week. We can't fault the food or wine, service was efficient without being intrusive. The décor was simple, seating & tables comfortable."
    dined on 01/04/2014
  • "We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. The lemon sole for the main course that I had was excellent. The service was impeccable which made the entire experience wonderful."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "Beautiful dining room but lack of genuine service. It was robotic and cold. No one cared to explain the menu or check in. When we asked about getting an extra course, the server abruptly ended the conversation by saying she had to ask the Chef. One of the numerous servers simply placed something on our table, mumbled a quick "happy anniversary" WHILE she looked across at another table and walked away. We felt so insulted by the lack of care we were shown. I have eaten out in many countries, and this is by far, my worst dining experience. I would not eat at Petrus again even if someone paid me to. Go to Dinner by H. Blumenthal or Hibiscus.They care about their guests, something that was conspicuously absent in Petrus' dining room."
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "THE FOOD WAS FABOLOUS, AND ALSO TEH SERVICE. WHEN I'LL COME BACK TO LONDON I WOULD LIKE TO EAT AT PETRUS. A LITLLE GIFT OF EXCELLENT FOOD FOR MYSELF ;)"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Went on 29/03/14 had a superb meal, great theatrical service, dishes were big portioned even though we were on Set Menu for lunch. Suckling Pig dish (main) was great, i asked for more gravy sauce for main - no problem, asked for more bread - no probs! Great price for michellin food. will be back!! Quilon Michellin Restaurant was the highlight though..."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "What can I say out of this world from start to finish made us feel so welcome staff were fab and the cheese board was out of this would"
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "I had a lovely experience having a long lunch with a friend. It was just ridiculously expensive-- nearing $500 for two, so I could not ever recommend it to my friends, however pleasant it might have been,"
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "Service was faultless, food was superb. Tasting menu definitely show what they are good at! will go back again very soon!"
    dined on 27/03/2014
  • "I booked a celebration meal for myself & my husband, as our birthdays are close together. The service was really good, charming staff, very attentive. The food was fine, but not any better than we have had in many other good restaurants, none of which had a Michelin star. Maybe I was expecting too much. My starter was great, white asparagus, crispy chicken & morels in a lovely sauce. I had duck for my main, which had a rather rubbery skin, & the lettuce leaves with sauce poured over did not work for me. My husband had a crab starter, good but tiny, followed by ox cheek, apparently quite nice but not special. My dessert of millefeuille was nice, my husband really liked his coconut soufflé & pineapple sorbet. Good but not amazing."
    dined on 25/03/2014
  • "I have dined in some of the best restaurants in the world, and this is right up there. The teasing menu was spectacular with probably the richest foie gras and the best duck I have ever had. Desert was a masterpiece."
    dined on 24/03/2014
  • "This was our second visit at Petrus and as expected, it was excellent! Can't wait for next time:-)"
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "Lunch booked to celebrate a special birthday was made extra special by the attentive and high standards throughout. A thoroughly enjoyable experience with top class food and service."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "My dinner at Petrus was excellent. the attentive serviceto perfection, great food and wine pairing perfect. deserves the reputation it has."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "6 of us went to celebrate my wife's birthday and although we only went for the standard lunch menu we all found something in the selection that we could choose and it was all really good food. Made all the better by little touches of 2 flavours of savoury popcorn before we ordered, a little "amuse bouche" between courses and little balls of ice cream before coffee. They even gave the ladies a little cake as we left."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "And it just kept getting better. A perfectly seasoned and spiced roasted poussin with a dessert that made you feel like a kid again. Amazing."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "Treated my boyfriend for his birthday, and found everything about Petrus wonderful, from the decor and lighting to the service. We opted for the 5 course taster menu and the food was delicious and presented in the way you would expect for this type of restaurant. They also bought out a special birthday desert which was lovely. We literally had to roll out of the restaurant, would love to go again- found the price for the food quite reasonable for the type of 'high-end dining' but the wine list was very exhaustive and pricey."
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "The restaurant design is very elegant, with tables well separated. Unlike many other establishments the ambience is quiet and calm without the din that often prevents decent conversation. The set lunch with its several small unannounced tastings is terrific value and beautifully presented.Service us expert and friendly and the staff explain the menu with great knowledge when asked."
    dined on 18/03/2014
  • "This was my first Gordon Ramsey experience and I have to say, it was very good but not amazing. We were shown to our table by the maître d’, who returned five minutes later to ask if we’d like an aperitif. When informed that we’d prefer a glass of water he actually rolled his eyes. The service from the rest of the staff was actually pretty good and the food was of a very high standard (as you’d expect) but the omnipotent smugness of the maître d’ did somewhat overshadow what would have otherwise been a very pleasant experience in some very plush surroundings. However, if you’re going anytime soon, I’d recommend the lobster & salmon raviolo as a starter….and apparently the scallops were fantastic!"
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "Very good experience I had. Excellent service, amazingly good food, and so many people working just to provide the best dining experience for the guest. I was there while on holiday and would definitely come back if I visit London again."
    dined on 13/03/2014
  • "Overall very good experience, though food had some room for improvement, which were all ok but nothing special. Having said that, the level of service, location, and overall feeling was excellent. Would go back again and perhaps try the tasting menu."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "My husband took me to Petrus this weekend for my 50th Birthday. It was an experience I will cherish for many years to come. From the canapés to the coffee & chocolates, every course was a mouthwatering explosion of taste. The staff were so attentive without being obtrusive and so friendly and helpful. We were able to go down to the kitchen and meet the chefs which was a really nice end to a wonderful evening. When we are next in London we will definitely be back at Petrus."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "We dined at Petrus for my husbands Birthday, the food was gorgeous, the extra courses we weren't expecting we're a lovely touch and the service was fantastic, the staff were really friendly and happy to chat to us. The atmosphere was fine, there seemed to be a lot of business groups around and not many couples but that was fine. We opted for the 3 course a la carte menu and actually ended up having about 7 courses with all the extras the brought. The pork belly I had was amazing and my husband loved his scallops and mutton."
