This place has exceeded my expectations of excellence! Attentive staff, exquisite food and an all round perfect place to dine in - for both a casual or special occasion. Highly recommended.

A wonderful, unexpected oasis of charm amongst the hustle and bustle of Shoreditch! Great atmosphere, great food, great wine. Only negative was the food didn't come out at the same time. Two starters then 10 minutes before the remaining two came out. Definitey wouldn't stop us going back though.

A beautiful, wonderful and unexpected food and drink experience at the heart of Brick Lane. The French accent from the staff makes it whimsical...so I highly recommend Blanchette to everyone in and out of London.

One of my favourite restaurants. I took some friends who had never been and they all raved about food/service/decoration. My only gripe is that there’s only one rose on the menu @ £46 a bottle!!! Please add more reasonably priced wines in general

Food and service was superb. Dishes were of a very high quality, especially with squid with spring greens and chick peas. All the ingredients tasted fresh and flavoursome. Nice intimate feel. £8 for two bottles of water seemed rather expensive though - especially since no option was raised whereby we could simply have a jug (partly our fault, we should have asked). I also have a natural aversion to a 'service charge' being automatically added to a bill, which was at least 10% I recall - around £10. The menu should mention the extra charge. Still, you expect it in London these days. Table was a bit small considering it was recommended that we order a few dishes for 'sharing' - we could not fit a lot of them on our circular table for two, without moving and adjusting a lot of things around. The courses came in quick succession, which contributed to this issue. We had a nice evening though, friendly place with really good food.

The place is well decorated, our waitress was french which is a nice touch. Food was amazing, you have to try the bread and confit duck.

So busy you forget your standards: I have been several times to the brick lane establishment so very disappointed on this visit. Just poor from the first engagement. The head of house refused us a table for two (which I believe I had booked) even though there were 2 empty at the time. Seemed to me he saved the tables for younger clientele. That is how the night shaped up. Older clients at the bar younger ones up on the higher level So no table option only the bar. Placed on the corner by the window which meant a continual pushing and shoving as both clients and staff tried to get by. The main door does not close on its own so cold draught all night as people came in and out leaving the door open. The head of Bar did a great job keeping the night going but I felt outside looking in on the ambience of the restaurant. Overall really really disappointed. I live locally but with so much choice in London why would I ever return. I hope someone actually reads this. But hey I was ignored on the night so I don't expect much different on-line.

Restaurant Response

Dear Kieran, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We are constantly on the lookout for ways to improve the experience we wish to give as a restaurant, and are very thankful you have given this to us. The entire team and myself would like to apologise for the lack of table options available on the Saturday evening you visited us, and can understand how frustrating it must have been given your booking was meant to be for a table and not a counter seat. Being the manager on duty and having greeted you personally on that occasion, it would be a great pleasure for me to have you back in to enjoy some bubbles and snacks on us, in hopes of properly expressing my apologies and provide the truthful experience we've always hoped to offer you. Please do not hesitate to contact me on [email protected] if this can be of interest, I would be looking forward to hosting your dinner personally. Myself and the entire team here at Blanchette Brick Lane apologise again for the disappointment and sincerely hope to see you again in the future. Kind regards, Antoine Restaurant Manager, Blanchette Brick Lane 020 7729 7939 [email protected]
