Great service, cozy atmosphere, great food - the heirloom tomatoes in particular were incredible.

The food took a long time to come out, but was delicious. In particular, the duck. It was a bit expensive but an enjoyable evening.

Wonderful, chilled out restaurant amidst the hustle and bustle of Brick Lane. The staff were really welcoming and friendly, willing to describe every dish. The food was amazing! My partner and I were celebrating our anniversary, this place ticked all the boxes. I will be back!

This was our second visit to Blanchette, the first having been a year ago. We were bringing old American friends used to eating well so were keeping our fingers crossed that standards had not deteriorated. We needn't have worried! The food, service, wine and atmosphere were all excellent - indeed, my wife commented that the food was the most enjoyable she'd had for a long time: classic French bistro, yes, but inventive and particularly good cuisine.

I was really disappointment with my visit on Friday night. We had to ask for our drinks twice (took 15min to get them). However when they did finally arrive, yummy. Then the duck we ordered came out luke warm and so chewy I could not cut it. We sent it back and they kindly replaced with lamb dish that they didnt charge us for. I've recently been to the Soho location and the food and service blew me away! Somewhat strange how different the experiences were between locations. Soho team, I'll be back..

I was really impressed by the taste of the different dishes. It's not often that I stop talking to enjoy the food. Everything from the appetisers to the desserts was excellent. Highly recommended!

An absolutely fabulous meal in a very pretty restaurant. The walk from Bethnal Green tube was not the most promising start, but the décor once inside Blanchette is lovely- very romantic for our 20th anniversary! Nice buzz.The staff were delightful and attentive, but not pushy. I would definitely recommend it. Good for groups or couples.

Service was slow, there was only one waitress serving tables (and it was pretty busy) and one barman on the bar. The plates that were on our table when we arrived were removed before the bread we ordered was given to us, so we had no plates to put it on, which seemed odd. My duck course was served without a sharp knife, so I struggled to cut it up and it was well done, which wasn't what I would have expected (I wasn't asked at the point of order, but I usually expect duck breast to be a little pink at least). Our empty plates sat in front of us for over 15 minutes while the only two members of staff stood next to us polishing cutlery...this was after a number of diners had finished and left, so I can't imagine the cutlery had run out and needed prioritising over remaining diners. We were asked if we wanted dessert, which we did, but we knew what cocktails we wanted so we ordered those while we perused the dessert menu. 5 minutes after we'd ordered the cocktails, but before they were served to us, we were asked by the same waitress if we would like anything else from the bar. I clarified if the kitchen was also closing, but she said just the bar and we had more time to order dessert, but this seemed stilted and jarring considering we'd just ordered cocktails, but not received them. Was she suggesting we order more drinks before receiving the round we'd already ordered? Eventually I managed to get her attention again...I could see other diners struggle with getting her attention throughout the evening and I ordered a dessert. It was a birthday dinner for me and a candle we hadn't otherwise had on our table was plonked down with my dessert and with the mention that they'd run out of proper candles. It seemed a little cackhanded. Also quite disappointed to see that the floral arrangements adorning the tables on the website and instagram pages, were nowhere to be seen on any of the tables on the evening. Also the meringe of the passionfruit meringue dessert that I'd watched the video of on the website wasn't remotely gooey in the middle, as had been a main selling point in the video. Not sure I'd be in a rush to go back to be honest. More staff would be useful and, although it's a french influenced restaurant, a slightly less laissez-faire attitude would make it more enjoyable.

Blanchette proposes revisited, original and tasty French cuisines. If you are a fan of great food and an adventuruous you have to come to Blanchette. The place is causy as well as very welcoming. Members of staff are also great to make you feel comfortable and guarantee you a great time.

The lamb dish was very fatty. Poor quality for a main course.

We have really nice food, and a nice drink at the bar. When we got moved through for our food however it felt very rushed. We didn't get offered another drink until long after our food came out. The food was really tasty but everything came out far too quickly
