Description: “Expect zesty and satisfying French-Mediterranean cooking – as well as great bread.” Michelin Guide, 2018 Award winning restaurant, The French Table showcases contemporary French cooking in a laid back and comfortable setting. Located in the leafy suburb of Surbiton it provides the local neighbourhood with a great place to eat time and again, and for those coming from a further afield, the exemplary cooking definitely makes it worth the trip.

I live round the corner from this gem of a restaurant so it would be tempting to visit way more often but in truth, I am scared that going more than 3 times a year would make it less special....I am very probably wrong though as i have never had anything but superlative food and service from TFT and i doubt that will ever change.....How Eric has never received a Michelin star is beyond me but in a way i am secretly glad as it would become even harder to book a table and i guess the prices would rise (It is very well priced for the quality by the way !). In summary, If you have never been....GO !!

Had an excellent lunch served by very friendly staff. The food was excellent as usual and the variety was very good. Will be back, hopefully, in July

I have visited here several times and always find the staff to be polite and very accommodating.
The food has always been outstanding with great options and wonderfully flavoured dishes, the homemade bread are amazing! The drinks choices are varied and well priced, with the house wines being very drinkable.
Would recommend The French Table to anyone and cannot wait to go back soon!

We have eaten on and off at this bustling neighbourhood restaurant for over fifteen years and under the stewardship of Eric Guignard's ever consistent and excellent cooking the French Table has remained consistently excellent. There are few restaurants that merit travelling out to the suburbs to enjoy but this is one we have no qualms in jumping the train from Waterloo to Surbiton for the short walk to Maple Road to enjoy. Back there again this weekend with friends who had never been and who became instant converts. The cooking is delightful and seemingly uncomplicated with attention to excellence in a well balanced menu rather than a fanfare of fussiness. Eric excels with his fish courses but nothing he cooks will ever disappoint. The service run by his wife Sarah's front of house team is always proficient and friendly and there's no shame about offering the bread basket at least twice!
The wine list starts with a good selection of well priced wines clearly aimed to accommodate the return of its regular clientele but stretches at the top end for those seeking something more exotic; the house champagne is still one of the best in London and sourced only by the restaurant - worth a visit for a glass of that alone.
The French Table has built a substantial and loyal following making booking ahead a must but after another great evening there we still feel it deserves all the plaudits it enjoys - always more than worth the visit. It is always superb!

French restaurant located in Surbiton and one of the best restaurants in this area. Delicious home made bread and they even offer gluten free one. Nice place for date dinner.
