it was so loud our server couldn't hear us ordering, as a result all of our drinks were incorrect...every time. He was very nice, but a native french speaker and with the insane noise level he was facing an impossible task in getting our orders taken. We love a good party, but bagatelle is more club than restaurant. The food was so outrageously overpriced it actually made us laugh, the fact that it was mediocre made it even more comical.

Experience was AWFUL!!! They sat us downstairs in the lounge area not in restaurant, people kept putting their drinks on our dinner table, there was no light to see our food, we could not talk from the how loud the songs were. The hostess was not accommodating at all I told her i was waiting 3 weeks to have dinner here and i had no trouble waiting for a table but refused to let us wait making it seem like if we didn’t sit in the worst table in the house we weren’t eating even though a couple came in before us and were told to wait if they wanted a table. I was going to book here for my birthday dinner in a few weeks but noway would i come here again. Service was awful from the door to the table and the food was mediocre. The restaurant is only as good as its service would NOT recommend!!! Cannot be compared at all to the branch in Dubai.

Disappointing. I do a lot of fine dinning in London
The starter was crab with spaghetti. No sign of any crab
I always spend at least £400 for dinner . It’s not a restaurant I would return too unfortunately.

Great service, good cocktails, average food, at a high price point. If you're paying Michelin Star rates, you are expecting good quality food!

We order the signature Bagatelle Sunday (which didn't appear on the menu) in exchange for returning some very dry and bread-y pancakes, only to be charged a cool £60 for a few scoops of ice cream on a bed of mini-marshmallows, topped with oodles of whipped cream (and a sparkler). Please make sure you clarify to the staff that the order is in exchange for a low quality food item on their menu !

On the positive, the staff was great and energetic and tried to energise the room.

Bagatelle is a place for party and overpriced drinks. Food was good but the cheapest bottle of wine on the menu is £70, with an actual retail price of about £6-7. Way overpriced for what it is. Service was less than good - we booked a London Restaurant Festival menu and had to fight for it, as the waitress was trying to convince us that the offer isn't available on the day. She did that with quite an attitude, which set a tone to our evening. I had to go online to the Opentable website and show the restaurant manager what was being advertised. As the evening developed, it got busier around 8.30pm with music getting louder. We left at 10pm or so and the party was starting, which seemed quite fun. If you are looking for a glam party, I guess it's a good place to be but food/drinks are way overpriced for what they are. Be prepared for service targeted toward making people spend money rather than enjoy their culinary experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner at bagatelle. The staff were really welcoming and attentive to your needs. Enquiring about your needs without overwhelming. Luc was really hospitable. The food was a delight! We ordered the Lobster linguini to share and portion was huuggee for 2 people. We couldn't finish it! But it was delicious, yum! I'd definitely go back again and recommend the restaurant!

Best restaurant I've been to in London! Such a great atmosphere, nothing like I've experienced before, everyone gets up and dances on the chairs and they made my birthday special with sparklers and shots. The staff are friendly, welcoming and make the evening great fun. Only down point was we only had the table for 2 hours and wanted to stay longer.

Our reservation was at 10:15 and we arrived early at 10:05;
When we arrived the restaurant host told us that the table is not ready yet and to wait few minutes and that’s was fine since we arrived early but what happened next was not accepted in all standard.
We waited for one hour and 15 minute, each time we asked about our table they say not ready.
How come that I have reservation at 10:15 and they give me table at 11:30.
Why I wasted my time to make reservation and I waited same us if I don’t have.
Added to all of that last time I spoke with them they said come tomorrow and we will seat you because this is our policy.
They were laying, because all the people comes after us they give them table and each group was around 4 people.
So it was very clear and you cannot miss it that we and our reservation was ignored by the restaurant staff; and I don’t think that they have policy that says even if you have reservation you will wait more than an Hour.

I dine in many popular highly recommended restaurants in London and over the world this is the first time i get in satiation like that.


At the end I will say restaurant that not respect their customer it’s dose not worth to spend a penny at it.

The ambience was very nice but everything else was below average. The food is over severely overpriced for what's it is worth, and service is really bad, the pressure you to order the food quickly without giving us time to settle down and made us feel like we are sitting on conveyer belt and have to order and eat our food so quickly.

An amazing vibe/atmosphere! Went for brunch for a nice girls day out and had the best time, great music and everyone’s there to have a great time. Negatives being the good, pretty average. Burgers were cooked raw when asked to be medium well so half the table had finished eating when the new burgers arrive. Drinks are very very expensive. All in all, good vibe and decent food

I've visited Bagatelle on Thursday(20.06)
I was really looking forward to my dinner with my best friend ,unfortunately we were running a bit late due to my friend finishing work a bit later to what she suppose to(she is a nurse )
I rang Bagatelle and did make them aware that we are coming but we are running approx 20 min late-the girl from the reception said that it was ok ,however we will have to vacate table at 10(which obvs was a fair call!)
We got to the restaurant at 20:25 the girls at the reception greeted us nicely and then one of them said that we have an hour for dinner -I didn't think much of it ,only when I sat down at the table I said to my friend that it's 1,5h not an hour and probably she got that wrong
We ordered some drinks ,starters and main and really enjoyed overall atmosphere of the place.
After finishing all the food the waiter asked if we wanted any desserts I've asked him if we can have 10 min rest ,and he said that we don't really have much time as they needed a table back so I looked at the time and at that point it was 9:25 I said to him don't we keep the table until 10???(standard 2h)
He said that he needs to confirm with his manager
Than the guy with the braces on his teeth came and started the conversation with :"I TOLD YOU THAT YOU CAN HAVE TABLE FOR AN HOUR"I was a bit shock with his approach and lack of customer service presented
So than I said to him why is that?Fair enough we were late but still 2h is just a standard time for a table
Than he raised his voice again and told me that :"I AM LUCKY THAT HE DIDNT CANCEL MY RESERVATION AS IT SHOULD BE DONE AFTER 15MIN OF "no show"
At that point I just wanted to leave and avoid further embarrassment as didn't enjoy somone talking down to me anymore
So I said to him not to worry and asked for bill ,but he still didn't let go and carry on talking I did tell him that I didn't need his lesson and asked for the bill again
£225-and massive disappointment from the service we got
