"It felt like ambitious restaurants used to feel the last time I was doing this job back in 1995. What redeemed Gauthier Soho was the level of the cooking." READ REVIEW

"Each dish is beautifully composed, the elements as polite and harmonious as a string quartet or a performance by Justin Bieber. The word exquisite comes to mind." READ REVIEW

"While not groundbreaking in style or content, there's no doubt that Gauthier is a worthy addition to the motley collection of bars and restaurants of Soho, and it would be very mean to dismiss the food there based just on the rather staid and uncomfortable atmosphere in its upstairs dining room."
