More about L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon

Read the latest blog post on L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon

One of the West End's most desirable restaurants, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon serves simple yet exquisite French cuisine courtesy of multi-award-winning celebrity chef Joël Robuchon. Already with several accolades to his name, Joël Robuchon's Soho restaurant has been awarded 1 Michelin star and 3 AA Rosettes.

Influenced by Japanese restaurants, the layout of L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon encourages an engaging dining experience. The eating counter surrounds the open kitchen on the ground floor, inviting diners to converse with the chefs whilst watching them prepare their meal. Unique to Joël Robuchon's London restaurant, you can also interact with other diners whilst sitting opposite each other. A more conventional restaurant setting can be found in La Cuisine on the first floor, where the experience is similar to dining in the kitchen itself.

Within short walking distance of Covent Garden and Leicester Square underground stations, the Soho setting of this internationally acclaimed restaurant makes it perfect for a pre or post-theatre meal in the West End of London. Nearby theatres around this restaurant include the New Ambassador's Theatre, Piccadilly Theatre, Palace Theatre and London Arts Theatre. The comfortable, stylish ambience makes L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon an ideal restaurant in Covent Garden for romantic meals, business dining and special occasions. Valet parking is available and a smart casual dress code is operated (no shorts or trainers).

Had a very memorable dining experience. Food was excellent and the service was attentive, but not intrusive. Liked the look of the restaurant and watching the chefs in the kitchen.

From the moment we entered the restaurant we knew that it was going to be a fabulous dining experience and we were absolutely right. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. The courses were all generous sizes and the White Asparagus was to die for. The wine was selected for us and was well matched with the food. Finally, we chose a counter seat and it was great to watch the chefs at work and also to talk to other diners sat alongside. Definitely worth a return visit.

Beautiful and very trendy design. Open kitchen looks quite nice too. Great Service. Brilliant wine recommendations. Food was very nice but i wouldn't say it was very special, don't take as a negative comment, i did enjoy every bit but i had some better experience in other Michelin star rated restaurants.

This was a first class eating and wine experience.
The set menu is varied and the wine matching excellent.
The quality of the cooking and the overall service also outstanding.
Highly recommended.

Fabulous service, after they attempted to seat our party of four at the counter (!). Very good appetizers and entrees, excellent desserts. The only spoiling element was the party seated as we finished our desserts, who were wearing so much cologne we could not taste.
