Despite its very Gallic appearance--checked tablecloths etc ,the place was completely empty @ 1pm--thus no atmosphere at all. Huge choice menu,so probably not much cooked from scratch. Food presentation poor BUT tasted excellent on the whole.
Quirks included no ice-cream with the crepes& ice cream ! Also the 3 lamb chop dish was served 1 well done,1medium &1underdone !---my wife had asked for medium rare I dont want to be too unkind--good features included excellent service{Tho he only had 1 table to attend !] & proper napkins..

Lovely atmosphere and great little restaurant- we went for lunch - mussels, fries and a glass of red wine for an excellent price.

Very friendly and attentive staff, perfect service - it’s a great find.

When arriving at Euston Station it is well worth the short walk to get to this restaurant - we will definitely be back.

First class meal in excellent surroundings. The food was very tasty and well prepared. We both had escargot - wonderful. Our mains were just as good. We normally only have two courses. My wife had Creme Brûlée and I had seared apple which was wrapped in a delicious crepe. Fantastic. We were very pleased to have made a booking. There were many diners present when we arrived but the restaurant soon filled right up. There was no rush in serving and any suggestion of moving us on. We were able to enjoy the food leisurely. The House Red wine was excellent. All in all we had great food, excellent service and attentive staff. Recommended.

We stumbled across Denise's with a voucher for 50% off food and decided to try it out for an after work dinner before commuting home, the restaurant was busy for a Wednesday night at 6:30PM.

The starters were good, our group Duck Pate and Avocado with Prawns, both very tasty. The mains were top quality, I ordered the fillet steak, which was massive and melted in your mouth. The only thing that could be improved was more salad/veg with the steak as it didn't come with anything else.

The pasta and chicken kiev were also divine that the rest of the group ordered.

The normal prices were very reasonable for London and we will no doubt be returning in the future.

Been here several times now
French Mediterranean food
I usually have the sole
It’s unusual to find a restaurant specialising in sole and now I’ve got the hang of filleting without any bones I just love it
I keep thinking that Denise could do with a good lighting designer cos the venue has all the special features that if they were lit properly would enhance the atmosphere no end
