Food was below average and really not good enough for this price range. Place was beautiful and service was great but food was really underwhelming.

A relaxed, professional environment where you can just lap up the luxury! Highly recommend a visit to the bar afterwards for their jazz singers!

The restaurant has an amazing ambiance and the staff are very attentive without being over zealous. The food is fairly reasonably priced and you don't have to spend too much (£15 for a burger and fries). That being said we spent 190 but that was 3 courses and wine.
The amber bar is amazing well worth a visit

We had dinner at L’Oscar on New Year’s Eve before heading to the fireworks. We chose it from reading Open Table reviews and it couldn’t have been better. Every single items we ordered was terrific. Great warm bread, the pappardelle was terrific and the ribeye was cooked to perfection. Our salad was refreshing and the potatoes went with the steak as they are supposed to. We will definitely be back on our next trip to London. And the room itself is beautiful. The service by the entire staff was impeccable. Ana-Mari took care of us and did an exceptional job. This was in our top 3 dinners of 2019. We returned home New Years Day or if not we would have been back at L’Oscar for another meal!

I enjoyed the Moroccan soup to start with an amazing mix of flavours, the cod for main was delicious and cooked to perfection whilst the dessert of sticky ginger pudding and vanilla ice cream was perfection. The champagne was amazing as was the decor and service. Thoroughly recommended and will be back soon.

We were all extremely pleased with the welcome, the ambience, the food, the value and overall pleasure of dining at L’Oscar before going on to the theatre. We shall all certainly recommend this to our friends and are already planning another trip to London which will include a great meal at the restaurant.

My new fave place! Pure opulence and decadence! I visited the Baptist bar before my reservation at Café L’Oscar the service and drinks were divine and the experience continued into Café L’Oscar for our 9pm reservation for dessert (AMAZING) and cocktails (DELISH). Being a Monday evening it was very quiet and that just added to the sultry atmosphere. Thank you to the amazing staff, you all made my partner’s birthday so special. We’ll be back!

The food was served far too quickly and this left us feeling rushed. The starters came out after 5 mins of ordering and no sooner had we finished, our plates were cleared and the mains were served! We were so rushed that by the time it came to looking at a dessert menu, we couldn’t face it.
The staff were friendly and polite and the food was first class - just a shame about the timings, we were in there not much more than an hour.

despite having a booking there was no table available so we were put in the lobby room. Then we waited 10 minutes before anyone came to us. I ordered Sausages, bacon and toast. I got one sausage and one piece of bacon. For the prices charged it was a disappointing breakfast meeting. Service was slow from arrival to departure.

Have walked past so many times on my way to work and have wanted to visit to see if it was as good as I imagined. And yes, it was. Everything about our visit lived up to expectations - from the sumptuous decor to the welcoming and professional staff. The food was well presented and delicious - with the menu catering for everyone. Fabulous experience, can’t wait to return.

Cafe’ L Oscar is a lovely place to go good service and interesting drinks but no bar snacks with them. But the food was really disappointing my friend is a vegetarian and she found the choice very uninspired a veg ratatouille veg pie and a mushroom pasta ! Our starter was good a lobster salad . Me and my husband had a cheese burger which was very plain no relish and the fries were the worse I have ever had I have no idea what oil they are fried in but they were horrible.

We had seen this place and liked the look of it so we booked and were not disappointed. The food was terrific (and the fries plentiful) and the surroundings were first rate. The staff were attentive and did everything they could to help. My partner asked for gluten-free and they went as far as ensuring the fries were done in a fryer that had not been used that day so that the oil would not have come into contact with anything else. Little things like that make a difference. We will be coming back.

Our meals were excellent. Garlic soup. Navarin of lamb. Cod. All highly recommended. Why the mediocre review? Bordeaux should not be served in a water goblet. Serve bottles of pricey wine in appropriate glasses and I’ll come back.

Overall an excellent lunch; they had run out of gluten free pasta, so my preferred dish was out of bounds. Suggested they get a pack from Sainsbury's opposite, but the idea didn't impress the maitre'd. I would have been impressed if they had and guaranteed a return visit ... but there you go.

Had a great time with a group of friends, very lovely waitress and super friendly and lovely decor.

We all had the pre theatre menu which was very good value and high quality.

However, we found the least expensive wine was simply too expensive for a repeat event. With 5 of us our bill was well over £400 and our wine was £45 a bottle which is simply too expensive I feel.

I would recommend the place but stick to sparkling water. They need to offer a mid twenties bottle of white quite frankly.
