Roux at The Landau
Wonderful!Great ambiance, wonderful food, friendly & attentive staff. Recommended for all. Go - it's fab!21/05/2013 00:00:00What a cracker!!!I was fortunate enough to be able to take advantage of a
Meal deal at the landau- and although I wasn't expecting a huge amount- having been left disappointed in the past by such things, I can truly say that this knocked the socks off the competition. We both enjoyed a truly great evening with fantastic food. The sommelier recommended a fabulous wine to accompany the proceedings, and the staff we friendly and very helpful. I will be saving my pennies so that I can make a return trip in the not too distant future - as I fear the meal deal will no longer be on offer !!20/05/2013 00:00:00We visited the Roux at TheWe visited the Roux at The Landau again for a friends 50th Birthday and he was not dissapointed, the food was very good the cheese board excellent and very good value for money.18/05/2013 00:00:00Incredible attention to detailWe went for an early dinner for my boyfriend's birthday. We both chose to eat the tasting menu with wine pairing.
Everything was beautifully presented, tasted amazing and the wine pairing was so well thought out that every dish was made even better by wine which complemented the flavours brilliantly.
The staff were incredibly professional and attentive of our needs and the attention to detail in every aspect of the meal was just incredible.
The food isn't cheap, but we felt like it was money very well spent.18/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely EveningWe started with lovely cocktails in the bar. Dinner was great. Excellent vegetarian options. Cheese board was superb. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant. Good flavours, well presented and a comprehensive wine list to match each course. Jamie in the bar was fantastic and met the eccentric needs of four rather squiffy individuals who embraced the cocktail menu a little too well! We will be back.18/05/2013 00:00:00Perfect for a romantic getaway!My husband and I started our evening in the Artisan bar, which is stunning, service excellent. We took the chefs menu for our dinner choice £60 for 5 courses £100 with wine course. What can I say, it was truly delicious! Excellent value for money .18/05/2013 00:00:00Had a great time, food wasHad a great time, food was fantastic so was the wine! We were really looked after from start to finish.17/05/2013 00:00:00We had the set lunch, whichWe had the set lunch, which is well priced for a top quality restaurant, with very good, albeit not outstanding food. The restaurant is effectively part of the swish Langham Hotel, but with a separate entrance, with service and facilities of a 5* hotel (including central location and good taxi availability).The restaurant is a large light, elegant open room, with quite a lot of tables for two around a semi-circularly side. A good venue for special occasions and business, and celebrity spotting.17/05/2013 00:00:00Absolute PerfectionFrom the moment we arrived, the friendly and efficient reception set the tone for the rest of the meal. From the taster to starter, main and dessert the whole experience flowed like a classic concert. It was one taste sensation after the other with every ingredient complementing the other in the dish. No superfluous additions, just like the service- perfect balance. The wines red and white were exceptional and once again complemented the dishes down to the finest notes. Every minor detail was absolute perfection! At The Landau culinary dreams come true - no explosions, garish twists or experiments- its about the food! Well done to The Chef, The Staff and The Landau.17/05/2013 00:00:00Great FindGreat value esp the champagne menu. Lovely long lunch and great ambience for small gatherings.16/05/2013 00:00:00A Special PlaceWorth every penny, we have eaten at the Landau several times and are always treated like Royalty
Superb waiting staff are attentive but never intrusive. Top marks to Franco!!
Delicious food was expected and delivered.
Special in every way16/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely atmosphere and attentiveLovely atmosphere and attentive service. Food was well presented and prepared. Tables were not cramped so conversation was possible. The 3 course menu including champagne was affordably priced and special mention must be made of the cheese buffet. Excellent choice! I do however have one negative comment - 12.5% service was included in the bill which is acceptable. There was then the option of paying a gratuity, which I feel is a bit cheeky! Not sure if any other London restaurants do this - I certainly haven't encountered any!16/05/2013 00:00:00Great from start to finish!We arrived and they seated us at one of their best tables. We had the toptable deal of £35 for 3 courses+a glass of champagne. The champagne was lovely and would have cost £18 a glass. We chose 3 courses from a set menu. They arrived with a lovely amuse bouche of handmade crisps and asparagus veloute. Next came bread; we chose three selections and they were all delicious. We started with broccoli soup and quail, then had lamb and chicken and finished with sorbet and cheese. Every single dish was beautiful and tasted a dream. The staff were incredibly nice and attentive. I should mention that the drinks were great, but very pricey: £15 per cocktail. But we didn't mind because the toptable deal was such great value.16/05/2013 00:00:00Overall a very pleasurableOverall a very pleasurable dining experience. I wouldn't expected anything else at one of Michel Roux Jr's restuarants!!15/05/2013 00:00:00slghtly disappointed but...It's our second time to dine here; this time we invite more friends to come with us. However, we are slightly disappointed: three reasons - fewer smiles on waiters, slightly worse service, and tasteless coffee.
As for food, we like them as much as our first visit.15/05/2013 00:00:00OutstandingWe were a little late for our 1900 booking, the cut-off time for the set menu, but (after a little to-ing and fro-ing) they let us have it anyway. What a treat. After some divine amuse bouches in the bar, and then at the table, our three courses were as delicious as food gets...and for £45 including coffee, petit fours and half a bottle of wine each it is hard to not consider going back again this weekend.15/05/2013 00:00:00I booked a table here forI booked a table here for my girlfriends 30th. We had the set menu with a glass of fizz for £35. All I can say is AMAZING15/05/2013 00:00:00Woo-ed at the LandauHad a fantastic meal at Roux Landau to celebrate my wife's birthday! The room is impressive and the service was first class, attentive but not overbearing and we felt very relaxed..
We had the 3-Course offer including Champagne, tea & petit fours which made it excellent value for money! All the dishes were tasty and portions adequate. The warm fresh bread and appetiser between courses was a nice touch as was the personalised birthday message for my wife..
I would happily recommend this restaurant without a doubt... You will not be disappointed!14/05/2013 00:00:00Brilliant as usualWe have been to Roux at Landau many times and it is always such a pleasurable experience. Service is excellent and the food fantastic in presentation and taste.13/05/2013 00:00:00Monday LunchAsparagus and scallops for the starter, the scallops were seasoned to perfection and the truffle was very generous. Guinea fowl and salmon for our main, the jus served with the guinea fowl was delightful and the salmon cooked so lightly with a yummy crispy skin, it just melted in your mouth. For dessert we both enjoyed the apricot soufflé which is worth every minute of the 12 minute preparation. The soufflé was so light and the rice pudding ice cream provides a really interesting texture in the mouth. The dining room is very light and airy with tables set comfortably apart but not too far that you cannot share dining compliments with neighbours. Service is discreet and attentive making the whole experience very relaxing and enjoyable.13/05/2013 00:00:00Restaurant was excellent valueRestaurant was excellent value as we booked on a special deal (3 courses & a glass of champagne for £35), service and food quality was extremely high as you would expect and there was no attempt to upsell us or any awkward moment where I had to confirm that I had booked on the cheapskate deal.
The Lamb main and the quail starter were especially good. The wine we selected was lovely, and although the dessert selection on offer was a little unimagininative if you wanted something sweet the cheese selection was extensive.13/05/2013 00:00:00wedding dress shoppingHad dinner with my daughter at this restaurant on monday 13th after a busy day shopping for wedding dresses. Food was excellent, both enjoyed quail to start and then I had seabass with my daughter choosing the lamb dish. Seabass was wonderful skin had an amazing crisp and the lamb was perfect pink. Staff made you feel welcome even though we were 20mins late. Attentive but not invasive. good wine list and reasonable value choices.
lovely end to a busy day.13/05/2013 00:00:00We opted for menu du jor,We opted for menu du jor, which was a great selection at a great price and excellent quality for starter & main. The pea soup in particular was very smooth and enjoyable. We felt the a la carte dessert menu was more attractive and we were able to replace with £5/item. The Bitter chocolate millefeuille with maple ice cream and salted pecans was definitely worth recommending. Venue with good ambience and service was good.11/05/2013 00:00:00First time and we fell in loveIt was just super, I took my parents there, who were visiting me here in London. We decided that we gonna go with tasting menu, and I must say it was the best thing we did. All wines were delicious, the 5 course menu had many varieties and because my mom is vegetarian, she had her own main course and , which also was super. We really enjoyed it, and the service was just top of it.11/05/2013 00:00:00a wonderful experience 10 out of 10I have had excellent business lunches here before - great food, great service - and thought I would bring my wife here for dinner on our wedding anniversary - it was outstanding. The scallops were to die for, my pave of beef was so tender it melted on the tongue, a great wine list and a charming wine waiter, we had the Chablis and the Brouilly which were perfect and replenished without intrusion. All the staff were helpful and really lovely to talk to. For the cheese course the young lady serving was a real expert who put together a very complimentary selection. The bitter chocolate desert was a real treat as well, and then there's the room - a pleasure to spend an evening in. All in all a wonderful experience.11/05/2013 00:00:00Beautiful roomThe restaurant is situated ina hotel but has a separate entrance. The fixed price menu was good valua and the food quite delicious. The room is very beautiful. Service is professional and attentive.10/05/2013 00:00:00Special birthday dinnerWe went to Roux at the Landau for my husband's 50th birthday and it was exactly what we expected. We had the Chef's menu with the wine matching. The food was excellent, the wines matched nicely and the service was just right. Definitely a place for a special meal.10/05/2013 00:00:00A great start to the weekend.An afternoon meal for a 2 day visit to London, for my wife and I. we had the Toptable offer of 3 courses and a glass of Champagne for £35 per person.
Everything about the afternoon was really enjoyable,the food outstanding, the wine choices to complement the courses by the wine waiter also excellent. The Service by all at the restaurent wmade us feel welcome and 'special'.
We would return again without hesitaton.
A really unforgatabl experience.10/05/2013 00:00:00Birthday lunch with the famileWe had a lovet tasty lunch at the roux at the landau. The room and the service was superb. The food and we have a good choice for each course was very nice indeed.
I can recommend this restaurant for special occasions and the deal is well worth the money.10/05/2013 00:00:00Lunch with my partnerThis was my second visit to Landau. Although the restaurant became very busy, the service was still perfect. The room is lovely.
Our pea soup starter was absolutely delicious; it was like liquid velvet and the hen's egg was perfect. I had duck breast as my main course. It was a simply cooked with minimal fuss; perfect for lunch. We both enjoyed the same chocolate mousse desert which was just perfect end to a beautiful meal. Thank you to all staff members in Landau.10/05/2013 00:00:00Memorable Dining ExperienceHad an early reservation for a set menu deal at 5.30 for a group of 4 people thought we would be time limited due to availability, left the restaurant at 10 pm and never felt rushed. Fantastic food and service in a delightful setting. Even though we had booked a deal felt the choice was great and that we received the same level of service as if we were dining a la carte. The restaurant was very busy throughout the evening but it never felt like this with regards to the attention of staff and the general comfort of the environment. Would highly recommend and will be returning again. This restaurant within the 5 star Langham must surely be its 6th star.09/05/2013 00:00:00Worth to goFood & services are very good, but it's a bit noisy~08/05/2013 00:00:00Fantastic birthday experienceDining at 'Roux at The Landau' was a memorable experience from the warm welcome to the pleasant goodbyes.
The food was outstanding and the chef was very accommodating. He created a fish dish with potatoes and broccolli for my 11 year old son. The starter with smoked char (never knew that this was a fish) was exceptional, as was the main course with pollack and squid.It was mu husband's birthday and the staff brought out petit fours with 'Happy Birthday' iced on to the slate dish. Thank you so much.
Throughout the time the waiters were attentive and very friendly.
Shall...I return to the restaurant. Yes ...most definitely.08/05/2013 00:00:00A great lunch at Roux at the LandauThe lunch was a very special occasion being the 50th birthday meal for my sister. The set lunch menu with wine was excellent value. The standard of the cuisine was exactly what you would expect from a Roux restaurant. The staff seated us in a lovely separate booth which enabled us to have a lovely private conversation and really enjoy the occasion. The service was immaculate and every member of the team was attentive to their respective duties without being overbearing with their presence. The maitre d'hôtel and sommelier were particularly welcoming. I recommend the restaurant for a special occasion or an important meeting and will definitely return.08/05/2013 00:00:00Outstanding!Went for my nieces 21st birthday treat and once again was not disappointed. Great food, exceptional service and wonderful venue. My niece was very impressed! It's been my 2nd time at this restaurant and would definitely go again. Great value for with the special offer.07/05/2013 00:00:00Champagne Lunch at the LaundauI booked the special offer menu through Top Table of a 3 course lunch plus champagne. The staff were charming, the food and drink excellent, and everyone lunching there seemed to be enjoying the experience. There was a mixture of business lunches and those there for pleasure.
The room is large and elegant, but unlike the Gautier, not in any way homely or intimate.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.07/05/2013 00:00:00Roux at The LandauAlthough the choices on the set menu were few, the quality was superb. Couldn't fault it. Very good value and an excellent dining experience.07/05/2013 00:00:00Superb meal at LandauThe service was unobtrusive yet very relaxed and caring. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious.
Altogether my family found the whole experiences very memorable
We are looking forward to our next visit in thenear future and would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to all our friends.07/05/2013 00:00:00The room is very pleasantThe room is very pleasant and service both attentive and discreet. We had the Chefs menu and the food was very good with an interesting combination of flavour's all attractively presented. The menu of day appeared to represent very good value but we simply preferred the selection of dishes on the Chefs menu.04/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely setting, decent food.We went for my mums birthday dinner on the set menu. The setting is lovely, and the staff are all very friendly and attentive, and they didn't rush us. They also marked the occassion with the petit fours by personalising it with a happy birthday message.
The food was decent enough and they did cater for an olive allergy etc. My only criticism is that although all the food was perfectly nice and well cooked, it was not outstanding, but I would go again.04/05/2013 00:00:00First disapointment hereI took my family (3 of us) for dinner there last Saturday and although the service was very good the food certainly wasn't.
The Sole (45 pounds) was overcooked and dry. The sirloin was good, and the lamb was average.
What was really disappointing were the starters. Two of us had Scallops (an automatic choice for me, when available). The restaurant had clearly run out of scallops (we ate late) and should have told us so. Instead we had 2 very small scallops each, totally inadequate as a starter. I had this dish many times at this restaurant and looked forward to it, so I was particularly disappointed.04/05/2013 00:00:00Next time we are in London,Next time we are in London, please have a table vacancy for us.03/05/2013 00:00:00friday lunchtook my sister for lunch. Greeting was warm and friendly. Sevice was outstanding. We had set 3 course with a glass of champagne. food was delicious and portions were great.
Just lovely03/05/2013 00:00:00excellent all round restaurantThoroughly enjoyed our dining experience staff were extremely friendly and helpful to assist with wine selection, food selection and even offered to de head and tail king prawn starters.
Food was definetly in my top three dining experiences.
Only minor gripe was it got warmer and warmer in there and started to make me want to hurry dessert to get some fresh air.03/05/2013 00:00:00Roux at The LandauAbsolutely fabulous experience. Food was perfect, service impeccable, cannot recommend enough.03/05/2013 00:00:00Great food, service and value!We went to the Roux for dinner as a birthday celebration. The service was fantastic from the start, lovely ambiance. They even catered for my cows dairy intolerence without any objections! We opted for the toptable offer of 3 courses with a glass of champagne for £35 which is great value when a glass of champagne off the menu is around £16! We ended up actually having five courses when you include the extra little chefs specials. One bit of advice is have the cheese board, it was amazing! I can only eat goats cheese as I am intolerant to cows and I was expecting one cheese, they gave me 6 different goats cheese! Fantastic! Oh and make sure you order a glass of the chablis, it was divine! I would definitely return!03/05/2013 00:00:00The special offer three courseThe special offer three course lunch with Champagne was excellent, just the right amount of food for lunch, very good attentive service. Only to be aware of the cost did escalate by buying wine by the glass which was good but priced between £9-£13 per 175ml glass ( a bit steep !)
Good ambience and would go back for special occasions03/05/2013 00:00:00great lunch venueBook the Top Table deal for lunch at Roux at the Landau, at £35 for three coursese including a glass of champagne, in a lovely room with very good food and excellent service is a great deal.02/05/2013 00:00:00Excellent meal and serviceWe went for a mid-week lunch for my birthday celebration and, as with all good restaurants, lunch (particularly the table d'hote menu) represents exceptionally good value for money as well as being an excellent meal. Amusee bouche, 3 course meal with cheese as an alternative to dessert, coffee and petit fours with half a bottle of wine was £45 per head. When it is easy to pay £20 for a main course at a gastro pub, this is excellent value even before finding that it really is fine dining at its best. Friendly attentive service and no sense of being rushed. We will return.02/05/2013 00:00:00Can't be faultedThe lunch time menu is fantastic value. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff are fantastic.01/05/2013 00:00:00
