Fodor's Review

Masterchef Michel Roux Jr. works the floor in the old-fashioned proprietorial way at this clubby Mayfair basement institution—established by his uncle and father in 1967—which many still rate as the best formal dining in London. Resplendent with magnificent silver domes and unpriced ladies' menus, Roux's mastery of classical French haute cuisine hypnotizes with signature dishes like foie gras with cinnamon-scented crispy duck pancake, soufflé Suissesse, roast venison with red wine jus, or saddle of rabbit with Parmesan cheese. Desserts like the chocolate omelet soufflé or upside-down apple tart are expertly accomplished. Notable three-course set lunches (£56) are the sanest way to experience such flummery—with half a bottle of wine, water, coffee, and petits fours thrown in.
