If I can give 6 stars, I will. Food is excellent without saying (not just me, with 3 Michelin stars, even the expert agrees). But the highlight is the whole experience. 101% to the staff members. Extremely professional, yet very friendly and very knowledgeable. Overall...cannot recommend higher!More

We stayed at the hotel Christmas Eve and Christmas day. We went to lunch at this restaurant on Christmas day. For 3 hours, we enjoyed the wonderful service and food. There were 6 courses for lunch and I have to say that we were absolutely...‘full’ at the end as each serving was on the more generous side. We both had to lie down for a few hours afterwards (probably should have gone for a walk in the rain). The service was very attentive. The atmosphere is stark but warm and as the restaurant filled up, became quite buzzy. Obviously this dining experience is not cheap but worth every penny for special occasion. The staff at the hotel and the restaurant went to enormous efforts to ensure that everyone had a wonderful Christmas experience. Recommended.More

You'd think that after 17 Michelin stars, he'd know how to deliver. He does. Excellent food beautifully presented by attentive and cordial staff members. Definitely worth your time and money.

The dinner that we had was one of the most wonderful experiences we had. The ambiance and the atmosphere of the restaurant is quite unique since it gives you the aura of something flawless. The food is exquisite with many brilliant flavours that give you...pure pleasure while eating them. The famous lobster that we had is a great choice, it was fantastic and it reminded us the reason why this restaurant has 3 michelin stars. Additionally the service was stunning, polite and very helpful.More

I didn’t find the food inspiring, or to the level of other 3 Michelin starred restaurants, but that’s not the reason for the 2* review. Four people on the table, three had the same main course option, I chose another. All of the meals came...out the same, I mentioned to the waiter that I had the wrong main, I was more than happy to eat this, not a problem, mistakes happen. After I had eaten this course, empty plates were placed in front of the other three guests, then the correct meal was brought out for myself? I’m now confronted with the situation of eating another course, whilst the others watch on with the fore-mentioned empty plates. There was no need for this baffling resolution. Surely, it would be move on from the mistake, as I were not bothered, or give everyone the meal?More

A wonderful experience that lived up to its promise, and worth the admittedly high price. The lobster is as good as everyone says. The service is superb. The Mont Blanc is almost surprisingly light and elegant due to the clever use of yuzu.

It’s probably not viable to come up with a unique superlative to this extraordinary experience. I primarily went because my son had a personal adores Alain Ducasse and had wanted to eat here for a long time. I did not have high expectations yet knew...it was going to be good. I’ve been to The Fat Duck, Waterside Inn, Ramsey, Le Gavroche etc. All exceptional. But having had The Tasting Menu where every course was stunning and experienced wonderful service in an exquisite dining room, I really think as a complete experience, this surpasses them all. I would go back in a heartbeat.More

My friends and I have visited many Michelin star restaurants and this is by far the worst experience we’ve had. We dinned at the Table Lumiere, which was beautiful. But the food was mediocre, presentation was quiet boring and old-school, and the service was the...worst I’ve experienced in a fine dinning restaurant. We were rushed into the first course. The waiter literally shoved the plate in front of my face while I was eating my bread. He held it in front of me, and without saying a word waited for ME to move the bread plate to the side. He then sat the dish down and left without telling us anything about the dish. The bill also came out incorrectly at the end. We had to pay a holding deposit for the table, which should have been deducted from our bill but wasn’t. They fixed this for us but it was a very amateur mistake in my opinion. It’s not like they just opened the table for reservation… and I believe a deposit has always been required to book the Table Lumiere. Needless to say I will NOT be going back to any Alain Ducasse restaurant in the future. And I seriously wonder how this place got its Michelin 3 stars….More
