Passion, Precision and Perfection are epithets justifiably applied to Alexis Gauthier’s gastronomy. Since opening Gauthier Soho in 2010 and receiving plaudits from all the major guides, his restaurant has gone from strength to strength, delighting guests with exquisite cuisine, comfortable surroundings and highly professional service. To achieve all three simultaneously, especially the last given the lamentable decline in standards euphemistically... More

The standard of the food and service is excellent. The setting is lovely. The cost is very low for what you get. We had the three course set lunch which came with all the extra in between courses, a glass of champagne, a gin and tonic and two glasses of wine each and the total bill including top came to...

I think this must be one of the best value places in London. The food is excellent, the wine offered with the fixed price lunch goes very well with the food and the service cannot be faulted. The three course lunch also includes canapes, an amuse bouche, a pre-dessert, petit fours and delicious breads so it is in fact a... More

Lovely French Restaurant in the heart of London we go every now and then when we visit our son. They have reasonable priced set menus for lunch or the more expensive taster menus with wine and the deluxe menus with champagne, the choice is yours. This occasion we selected the Deluxe lunch three course menu to celebrate my wife's birthday.... More

Secluded in the hustle & bustle of Soho, you will find the best vegan fine dining experience. The moment you walk through Gauthier's front door, you are met with an inquisitive calmness within yourself; the softly spoken sommeliers guide you through to your seating where you begin your 3 hours of sensory delight! The entire afternoon was a brilliant birthday... More

We have visited for lunch so many times but Good Friday was the best yet. The Spring menu was well put together, and the canapés and amuse bouche really set the mood for some really fine dining. The delicious selection of breads complimented excellent starters and for main, the fillet of beef with braised ox cheek and bone marrow was... More

Great choice of courses and held great expectations but two courses lacked seasoning and were poor to say the least. Dressed crab was wet in texture, lacked any flavour and had bits of shell in it, the dressing was lacking any flavour and was just wet. The Rum Barba was bitter to the point of unpleasant and had no sweetness... More

We went to Gautier to celebrate my birthday and it was just amazing! It was a special menu of 8 courses with paring wine... The construction of the dinner was beautiful! Starting with the tinny garlic bread that melts in the mouth , going to the bisque that I could definitely swim in, perfectly cooked scallops and finishing with the... More

Very innovative menu. It was a great dinner experience with excellent food and extremely interesting wine pairing with lesser known names worth trying.

Went here to celebrate my Wife's Birthday, had a great time. We had the fixed price menu with 2 glasses of wine and one champagne. The food was delicious, as were the amouse-bouche. The only slight niggle we had, was maybe a little over seasoned for our tastes, other than that, marvellous wines and great service. We will return soon.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
