Beautiful surroundings and the staff went over and beyond for us.
I asked for a chai latte which they don’t make, but no effort to them, got one made for me from the coffee bar next door. I really appreciated this as it completed a lovely meal.
The staff are very attentive and pleasant.
Will be back, thanks.

I would not have contemplated dining here without the First Table offer. The name does not do justice to the high quality of food,presentation and service our group experienced. It is not just a venue to consume oysters and expensive bubbly!
I would visit again for dinner because the place has a great atmosphere and a dining experience to match. Excellent wine list as well.

We had an amazing experience at Louis Champagne & Oyster Bar. The food was absolutely fantastic, and the service equally as good.

The food was all fresh, delicious and the presentation was outstanding. The waiter even tailor made a couple of specialty Gins to accompany our meal.

Would definitely dine here again, and won't mind at all paying full price for a such a great dining experience,

It was a wonderful experience for both of us. The oysters were so fresh and creamy, the lobster was perfectly cooked, the ocean plate is very delicate, but not ideal for share though. The bite size dessert was great! We will come back

Beautiful decor, jazz in the background, waiter pleasant friendly and attentive, and happy to go the extra mile. The food is just right-the whitebait fritter was light lemony with asparagus and greens that matched to perfection. This is a great place to make a special occasion special. Have been before and will come again.

Have been wanting to go for some time - thanks to First Table making it possible. The food was outstanding- I started with the tasting plate - so beautifully presented and delish. All three of us had the lobster as our main. Cooked to perfection . My friend said the duck fat potatoes were the best she’s ever had - that is a big call !!! Service was warm, friendly and attentive. Can’t wait to come back !!

Fantastic dining experience! Food was beautiful. Champagne batter Cleveland oysters were amazing - don't be put off that they're not Bluff! Full of flavour and cooked to perfection.
Slipper lobster tender and succulent. Beef fillet cooked to perfection and duck fat potatoes to die for!! Surroundings are intimate but not cramped. Waiter was attentive and helpful. We'll be back.

It's a nice quaint little restaurant and the service was wonderful. Friendly and helpful staff. And the food was beautifully done! The lobster was made to perfection, in my opinion. And the oysters tasted so fresh and delicious...and I normally don't like oysters!!
