Roux at The Landau Ratings and Reviews
Great traditonal breakfast
For anyone who dislikes paying for a full buffet breakfast, when you only want part of the whole thing, this was ideal. No buffet here but included on the menu is a traditional cooked breakfast, including juice, toast and tea/coffee, as a complete one price package; and all served to you at a table. This was real treat. And at this price very reasonable. Great service in pleasant surroundings. A good start to the day.
Dinner at Roux at the Landau
As usual this dinner was great ! Very good food , excellent service ! Soufflé desert is always wonderful ! Always an excellent restaurant!
Every aspect of our dinner was perfect. The staff friendly but not fussy and the food superb.
Can't Fault Roux at Landau
Another superb meal and service at Roux at Landau. My guests were blown away by the food and service and all of us can't wait to return. The menu and wine were excellent as was the service. £67 a head with after dinner liqueurs and service. Great value.
Amazing culinary experience
Had a 5-30pm Business meeting. The service was first class as was the food, the whole experience far exceeded my expectations. I shall be back in a regular basis. 10 out of 10, great job Mr Roux
Monday Night Magic
We had dinner here on Monday evening, the biggest problem was what to choose as everything sounded superb. In the end it was kind of irrelevant as everything was superb! The service was attentive and amusing rather than obsequious which was refreshing. Definitely going back but to make it easier will go with the tasting menu next time!
Not as good as we expected
We ordered the set menu. Having been to Dinner at Heston Blumenthal we found the venue dissapointing in comparison. The staff were very correct and kind and sorted our uncooked fish dish straight away. I don't think we would go back in a rush.
Beautiful food. The bitter chocolate mi...
Beautiful food. The bitter chocolate mille feuille was outstanding. Attentive service without being overpowering. Would definitely recommend and would return.
Great food & service.
It's our second visit to the Roux and look forward to returning again.
A very special meal
We had the tasting menu with matching wine, which was just gorgeous. Every dish was lovely and the wine to match complemented everything. Was the perfect amount of everything and the service was unotrusive, friendly and professional. Would highly recommend.
All we expected
Everything went very smoothly and fully up to expectations. The service from all the staff was impeccable, even with a large party being served in the private dining room. Memorable from the meal was the Ox Cheek which was outstanding and it was also so refreshing to be able to order Cheese without a supplement, and be presented with a large fully stocked trolley to choose from.
Does not disappoint if you for fine dining
Lunch with wine was £106 for two which included good wine. Food was excellent and inventive, wine with the lunch deal was not shabby either. If you like fine dining it is unbeatable.
One of our favourite restaurants in London for quality of food, service, attentiveness and amiability of staff, ever changing menu and creative dishes, wonderful atmosphere and all round brilliant time! Have been to Roux at the Landau around 5 times now and it never fails to please!
Wonderful As Always
We have been several times before and it never changes always wonderful food, good value for money and an excellent wine list. Even the wine that accompany the du jour menu is excellent. Thank you to staff and chef for making our wedding anniversary the best again.
Outstanding dining experience.
From start to finish, the Landau experience is of the highest standard. Friendly, attentive and professional staff ensure everything is to your satisfaction. The wines and food are of top quality. Ambiance and decor are elegant. It is a venue that you will want to return to - we do.
Seems to be improving further
Perhaps just short of truly outstanding but very good in all aspectsif anything better than before.
Exceptional food, in particular the roas...
Exceptional food, in particular the roast cornish squid starter and chocolate millefeuille dessert. Unfortunately the service was poor; inexcusable given the restaurant was 70% empty. Elder clientele are given preferential service.
Excellent lunch, food & service first class
We enjoyed the 3 course lunch for 47 pounds including wine it was a bargain! The food selection on this menu has limited choice but every dish was excellent and great value. We will defiantly go there again to enjoy the delicious food and great service.
Fabulous food in a great location.

Excellent meal served by helpful friendly staff. Slight confusion over menu selection but this was quickly resolved. All food was perfectly cooked and very tasty but the desserts were particularly good. A very enjoyable experience to celebrate a special occasion.
Business Dinner at Roux at the Landau
The Roux brand is writ large at the Landau. The ambience; staff friendliness; the freshness of the table settings; the unobtrusive, yet friendly table staff;and the quality and presentation of the food set the benchmark for dining at this end of the spectrum. This made our business dinner very enjoyable.
Good Environment Service Poor Value
We paid for 4 Set Brunches @ £45 each. But we were charged extra for coffee, tea and sides like fries and tomatoes which were supposed to come with the main course. What is the point in having a set Brunch if even soft drinks and coffee tea are not included? And how can you have a Main Course like an Omelette without fries or tomatoes? A rip off.
the restaurant was amazing outstanding one of the restaurant I been to for a long time this meal was my husband & I not over priced at all just amazing fine dining its a must we are already thinking of rebooking and it I don't normally go back to restaurants straight away but this one is a must I just wished I got the lovely young lady's name who was looking after us she was so lovey
I took my parents here for dinner. We had the £45 for three course and half a bottle of wine and coffee. We got 5 star treatment even though we were using an offer. It was a night to remember. Loved every moment and staff and food were amazing. Did not disappoint. Plus we left stuffed!
Having eaten at the Roux at Parliament Square & having a really fantastic tasting menu experience, I had high hopes for Roux at the Landau, but left feeling hugely underwhelmed at both the meal and the service. The booking we made was on OpenTable for a 3 course set-menu, coffee & petit fours. Despite the restaurant only being about half full, it took about 10 mins to be offered water &no drinks order was offered, so I had to request to look at a drinks menu. The Sauvingnon Blanc I had was incredibly acidic & I at £11 for a glass of wine, not that enjoyable! Our food order was taken 20-30 mins after we arrived and we were then offered some bread, which was cold and I expected a better quality of baguette, which was quite stodgy. The starters were OK. Both nicely presented. I had the salmon & my partner the duck terrine. The salmon was good quality, but this dish was not anything special, as was the terrine. The mains were both a real let down. I had the confit duck with butter beans & sausage. The duck was well cooked & the sausage tasty, however the beans accompanying the dish were not flavourful at all & it wasn't properly seasoned. My partner ordered the chicken dish and his was even worse than mine - whilst succulent, it was completely devoid of flavour. Not what you would expect from a Roux restaurant! And certainly not something I expect from French food, which is usually bursting full of rich flavours. For dessert I had a slice of cheesecake. Again, very simple, nothing special. My partner ordered from the cheese board, and we did have 2 excellent goats cheeses that were very different to any other cheeses we had tried before, & one of the waiting staff was very helpful in suggesting where to source them from. It's a shame really, I love french food and had such a good experience at Parliament Square, but with the slow service & average food, there are far better places to eat at this price point & I wouldn't return again.
Dinner at Landau
I had read good reviews of the Landau so I thought it a good restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. The ambience is really lovely, and the staff the evening we went were all polite and helpful. However, my wife was not drinking alcohol that evening and asked the waiter to recommend something to accompany the meal. He sent the sommelier round, who actually sniffed when she asked him for a recommendation. He said she should just order anything. I asked a waiter for more bread, at which we looked at me and smiled broadly. Oh dear, how un-cultured of us. Set the tone really for the evening really! After that we just ate our meal and did our best not to offend the staff by our presence... Food was good but I just don't know believe it had the Wow factor for the price paid. Perhaps an off night? Shame as I really wanted to write a fantastic review of the restaurant (I am such a fan of Michel from his TV shows)
Nice but could be better
I went to Roux at the Landau for an early dinner for 2 and took up the special offer (3 course-meal + half-bottle of wine for 45 quid or so). Although I specified that when booking, the staff didn't seem to be aware of it and I had to ask for a proper menu stating clearly the offer. The food was very good, and I would describe our dining experience as very pleasant, but there were a few glitches with the service that prevent me from giving 4 stars. First, we felt the staff lacked coordination and appropriate training: we were pressed from all parts to choose drinks immediately even without a drinks menu (asking for one apparently surprised one of the waiters), same with the food. The service was a bit rushed throughout, the guys seem desperate to do well but they need to realise that customers who book dinner in a place like this don't want to be rolled in and out of the restaurant as quickly as possible... otherwise we'd go to Nando's... Was it because of the "special offer"? We are used to fine restaurants and were surprised to be made uncomfortable like this. Another detail that troubled me was that the "half-bottle of wine" promised on the menu turned out to be a carafe. This is clearly not the same thing and the menu should be clear about it. The wine itself, however, was delicious (we each had a different white, one from Languedoc, one Chablis). I enjoyed my meal very much but I just wanted to stress why I can't give it full marks.

Food were amazing! Staff are very attentive Good selection of wine too! Overall I would recommend friends and family to go!
Michel, control your meals@ your restaurants
Amuse bouche of a sort of cream in a pate had no taste. Tranche of salmon ect. was so small I ate it in a few spoons. My wife had the sea bass with lentilles vert. We had the same at the café de Paris for 15 euros as Plat de Jour. So this was nothing special. I had the Confit de Canard, sausage and baked beans (Heinz) (what a combination???). I took with red Sauvignon, It was flat tasting. Desert was Lemon cheesecake/ apple sorbet, good but not a lot to enjoy. Coffee was the worst I have ever ever tasted in a star restaurant. As I had food allergies, mentioned well in advance we got two little sugared fruit candies with that horrible coffee. This was the second time we have been there, and we were looking forward to a very good meal. C'mon Michel! on the BBC you would have thrown the food at the cook! I think the problem is not that you are a good chef, but you don't control your sous-chefs. I had the same problem in Leon, France. Bocuse's main restaurant is EXCEPTIONAL. But the Bistros are very poor, especially SUD. My confits de canard reminded me of the typical Leonaise junk food (sausage) or maybe a cassoulete. I realize it costs a lot to maintain star quality. The best meal in leon was Chez Leon de Leon who gave up his two stars to give good quality at a good price. In a very good restaurant I would get my money back and an apology.
Foodie Son's Birthday
Lovely ambience in restaurant, service is attentive and precise but not overplayed. Dishes were unique in the main, (not something I have had anywhere before). Good sized and well presented portions. I had a delicious squid, with lemon aioli to start, followed by iberico pork chop with a cabbage and lentil accompaniment. Amazing wines, beautifully selected. Prices a bit heavy for a non- Michelin star restaurant , but you pay for location and the name I believe. My son, was 16 that day and thoroughly enjoyed the evening, he was presented with a Happy Birthday treat at the end of the meal which was a nice touch, we pre-warned them of course. The booking was thorough, I received an email reminder in advance, and a call on the day which was comforting, as we had travelled a long way to be there, and it was a surprise dinner. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Good food and service, dull room
We had a very good value lunch menu including wine, the service was excellent as was the food. I think the dining room could be a little brighter or the windows dressed, the view is hardly anything to look on to!
Nothing to rue at the Landau
This restaurant does not have the atmosphere of Le Gavroche but as expected at a Michel Roux restaurant the food is lovely and the service impeccable. We had the set price meal and thought it very good value.
Arrived @ 12.30 for a 13.00 booking and much to our surprise the staff were still laying the tables in the dining room, service supposedly starts at 12.30! Eventually someone noticed us and suggested we might like to retire to the bar for a drink. This we did, the bar is great. Went through to the Restaurant and were quickly given menus however some time elapsed before anyone returned to take an order from us. I had the brandy scented lobster bisque as a starter which was extremely good the best lobster bisque I have had. followed with the Bouillabaisse and then the Pear & almond tart which was also very good. The food was all I expected however the service was not (Interestingly much like Kaspars @ The Savoy). Not sure what is happening in these big London hotel restaurants but they need to up their game in my opinion. The exception has been the Goring which was faultless. My review score 85% Worth a visit for the food.
A Perfect Meal
From start to finish, this was a perfect dining experience. The food was fantastic, the service impeccable and what a charming venue.
First visit to Roux 23.10.15
Prior to our visit The Roux contacted us to ask if we would like their special menu 'Inspired by London' which they were offering for the day of our booking which we accepted. As we had not been before it seemed like an idea to try probably what we would not normally have ordered. This proved an excellent choice as all 4 courses were delicious. The sea bass with eel, bacon and horseradish cream was excellent. Service was exceptional throughout. Just to top it all Michel was in the restaurant and spoke personally to all diners - happily having his photograph taken with anyone who requested it - what a lovely man!
Consistent excellence at Roux at the Landau
We had lunched at Roux at the Landau a number of times. It is very convenient for the shops of the West End. This time we had the set menu which offered a good choice at a fixed price. We both had different things but the food was excellent, the service impeccable and friendly and the ambience just right. We have never been disappointed at this restaurant and will continue to go back. Michel Roux was in the hallway as we were leaving and I was able to thank him for the lunch while he helped me on with my coat . Such a nice touch. This is a really excellent place.
Absolutely amazing food! Took my my for her birthday and we both loved every mouthful! Throughly recommend this restaurant.
This was my girlfriend's birthday dinner and she was delighted with her tasty starter of onion consomme with parmesan-filled tortellini and the main course of pork chop. She remarked that the accompaniment of lentil and trotter 'fondue' was much better than having potatoes and that the pork was the best she has ever had; the meat really did look beautifully cooked and I could see that the 'fondue' showcased it almost perfectly - almost, because there was just a bit too much of it on the plate when dished up. I had booked online and indicated one vegetarian (me); there were options for me on the menus shown online, which you don't always expect, and I was impressed that I was given a separate vegetarian menu of 3 starters and 3 mains. The starter of roasted artichokes was a delight; each mouthful was subtly different, with an occasional little burst of a flavour you didn't expect but which was totally in keeping. It was a lovely little plate of autumnal sweetness, making me imagine myself out for a walk on a soft, lushly grassy field littered with chestnuts under the trees. The main course was equally and unexpectedly seasonal, a pasta dish with mushrooms and cheese. This was nice and warming in a cottage pie sort of way, but the cheese overwhelmed the mushrooms to the extent that I couldn't taste them, so it got a little heavy going. We were both quite full by the time we got to dessert, so my girlfriend went for creme brulee and I couldn't resist the toffee apple souffle. The creme brulee was pleasant, with a proper crust on top and a large lemon shortcake biscuit; nice but not special, and rather large. The souffle was a lovely object to have on the table, but was not quite perfectly fluffy and again was rather too much - and a bit too sweet. It was served with a small side of gingerbread ice cream, which was reminiscent of Grasmere gingerbread; I'd have liked a smaller souffle and about twice as much ice cream. The staff were nice as well.
If you want a special meal where the service is perfect, the ambience is perfect and the food is outstanding, then The Landau is the place to go. I cannot praise this restaurant enough and cannot find a single fault, it is that good. This is now the second time we have been for my wife's birthday, and the second time was just as good as the first.
