Fine dining in West End?

Hi there,

I'm looking for a very nice restaurant somewhere in the West End, non-Gordon Ramsey. Needs great wine list with some reasonable picks, nice linens. Can we any type of food, ideally French or Asian, but we are flexible. Something relatively new would be a plus. Thank you.

  1. Hibiscus. French. Inventive. Google it. It just opened about a month ago.

    1. L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon might work for this. We had a lovely meal there last Christmas Eve.

      1. I have always had good experiences at Axis and Indigo (The restaurants at 1 Aldwych). There is a small bar above Axis which is always empty when we are there for some intimate drinks... or if you prefer there is the main bar which I love. I have been there several times and cannot think of one criticism I have of the place... except maybe the Crimson velvet curtains at the entrance of Axis!

        1. La Petite Maison is v nice - it's in Mayfair, so not West End as such. Aubutus is also good, right in the heart of Soho and you can get wonderful wines by the carafe (250ml)

          1. The lindsay house - not new but is fine dining

            Also Arbutus is meant to be good.

            The dim sum at Yauatcha is fantastic
