My wife & I hade a very nice pre-theatre meal at this French Bistro in Bloomsbury area of London minutes walk from Holborn Station and within 20 minutes walk of Prince Edward Theatre were we had tickets to see Aladdin. I had a beautifully cooked medium rare fillet steak with au poivre sauce and then a crepe flambéed at the table with loads of Grand-marnier liqueuer, whilst my wife had sole fillets and a then a rich chocolate mousse, sat in a lovely table for 2 by the front window. Looking to go back next time in London for the theatre and would have tried the frogs legs starter had we not arrived a little late after having problems with our Uber taxi collection.
The food was superb, full of flavour and not small portions. it is a hidden gem close to Holborn station. well worth a visit if you're in the area.
great food tournedos Rossini was melt in the mouth, everything we ate was of a great standard and portions. Sophie our waitress was polite helpful and a good sense of humour.
Excellent service and food - will go there again soon! We had planned to go for about two hours - ended up there for well over three because we were not rushed!
This was our first time visiting Denise's resturant and unfortunately I was a little dissapointed. We were shown to a table that still had someone's belongings left on the seat, my wine glass was dirty and I could have done with a new menu as mine was badly damaged so was difficult to read. The starter was a very good portion and pleasant and I enjoyed my main meal, that was very nice, the dessert however wasnt great and expensive for what it was. I probably would return but maybe I would try an evening service and perhaps skip the pud!
Steve and I went to Denise's last night on Tastecard, the food was delicious, and the service very good, what a lovely cosy restaurant, we will definitely go back, the only criticism we have is that it doesn't do the restaurant justice the décor outside , it look more like a café than a French dining place!!
Absolutely adorable people run Denise's. You could not find kinder staff. We only had goats cheese salad as it was a warm day but being curious I looked in other people's plates and it was all looking delicious. GO and try it. Barbara (14th August 2017)
I booked our table for 2 online which was easy and confirmed by e-mail. When we arrived there was only a 4 seat table available. No problem except after a short time we were asked to move to allow for re-arranging the tables to make room even though there were only a few people present in the restaurant. A minor problem but could have been sorted beforehand. On the upside, the menu is very comprehensive and the food was very good and presented quickly. Geoff from Bournemouth
Denise's is always very good - and we've been going there for about 20 years. Denise, herself wasn't in the restaurant when we were there but both food and service were excellent
Denise's Restaurant provided a pleasant environment, excellent food and cheerful efficient service. As a Tastecard member it was a pity that the bill was produced without the discount but that was corrected without fuss.
