Serge et le Phoque is a Fitzrovia outpost of a Hong Kong restaurant, and it ticks all the posh new restaurant boxes: it’s in a fancy new hotel, there’s an expensive wine list, and it’s expensive. The menu is small portions of classic French food, and it’s ultimately a nice enough spot, but the whole experience feels a little bit dated. The signature pigeon dish might have been impressive in say 2010, when it was still unusual to find it on menu - but it’s now done better elsewhere, and at a lower price. If you do end up here, definitely order the monkfish, but know it’s small and that overall, residual hunger after eating is a real occupational hazard here. If you’re into eating at sceney high-end hotel restaurants then you might like it here - for the rest of you, we would probably direct you and your hard earned cash to some other restaurants, like Core by Clare Smyth.
