Pleasant, enthusiastic staff and an interesting fixed menu comprising 3 main courses, 2 deserts and 3 amuse bouche. Whilst not overly convinced by some of the chef's decisions, it was, overall, a very enjoyable experience that kept getting better. Definitely worth a try!

I should have thought that being able to make a reservation for a highly rated restaurant a few days in advance of diner was a warning sign. Some of teh dishes especially what they call amuse bouche or appetizers were very good. The main dish were not as great. Deserts were mediocre, luckily my partner opted for the cheeses (which were not recommended). Not that the cheeses were great but the desert was disappointing.
Waiters were OK but it felt they were young amateurs more interested in their social lives than in the guests

No amount of pretension can cover up bad food. It’s just the opposite at Le Chateaubriand, a rather pretentious name for a bistro with the food served in a buzzy setting makes you weep with joy there’s a good chef in the kitchen and helpful and excited staff in the dining room.
Since the menu at Le Chateaubriand is a set menu and changes every day it’s difficult to say what’s the best part of the meal since it’s unlikely you’ll have the same meal we had. I will say every one of the five starters was a surprise and delight. The portions were small so don’t fear the numbers. We chose the wine accompaniments and each course brought us a surprise from Normandy Cider to Georgian (Not USA) wine to a Jura Mac Vin to go with the Cold Potato soup with Bottarga, to a Loire Chenin Blanc that helped along the tomato water with chilis. On to the Poached Pollack with a confit of fennel with a New Zealand Orange wine. Our main course was a Pintade (Guinea Fowl) with burnt baby corn with a Pinot Noir Champagne. The two desserts were a Cherry sorbet that sang of fresh plump juicy berries and a Meringue with an Olorosa Sherry. There was not a single course we wouldn’t go back and enjoy over again.

Great place with good dishes and wines. The tasting menu is a variety of flavours. Staff is lovely but service could be better for the price...

It was overpriced for the food and for the atmosphere. We had 9 dishes, but we did not like at least 4 of them, the rest was just ok. Overrated place. Lovely staff.
