Our group of four visited The Tasting Room on a Monday night - the restaurant was surprisingly busy for a week night but we had a reservation and were seated promptly at an intimate table with candlelight. We ordered a bottle of wine to share over several appetizers, including the bacon wrapped scallops, seared ahi tuna and grilled chorizo -... More

This place is beside the Grand Theatre. The food is amazing. I have never had something I didn't like. The service is really great too!

Out for dinner with another couple and decided on heading to Richmond Row to the Tasting Room. I had been here in the past for drinks and appetizers and thought it was alright. Why not try it for dinner? Well, the menu does not provide a great deal of variety, in fact I thought it to be a touch overpriced.... More

This is located on the Richmond strip, so a great starting place for a night on the town. A place to enjoy a beverage at the small bar side, have a birthday dinner, or time with friends. I recommend reservations, as it is very small with limited tables. It is not ideal for a romantic dinner as it is a... More

Atmosphere is quiet and nice, we sat up the stairs and found it very intimate. Food was good, we had the Brie appetizer, it was yummy but could have definitely used a chutney or pesto, something more than cheese and bread. For dinner, the Mr ordered the chicken with piri piri, which was cooked perfectly and he really enjoyed. I... More

Short review of the tasting room. I've been serveral times love the small romantic setting of the restaurant. Food is excellent I recommend ordering a bunch of appetizers for the table when on a date and sharing a bottle of wine it's a great food experience. Price is expensive but you get what you pay for.

Very nice lunch, food was good, staff very nice, and not to expensive. We ate lunch, and decided to order several of the appetizers instead of the main meals. Although we did decide to try the fish Taco's and share. They were fantastic. I recommend those and the Korean short ribs.

To be honest, we haven't really dined in our home town for a while now.....Last Saturday changed that with an impromptu reservation at the tasting room for 6pm. Reviews looked good and the online menu sounded interesting. We were seated at a "high table" for 2 at the back near the kitchen area. very busy place to sit and the... More

Continues to be a spot with good shareable dishes. Venue can get noisey with a packed bar area but I think that shows how popular and successful this restaurant is. We have had many meals here. Great beef tenderloin, beet salad and wine list.

At the recommendation of some locals I went here wanting to have a light meal. The restaurant has a nice ambience and was quite busy for a Tuesday night. From their appetisers menu I asked the server how large a portion was the ravioli was and she said there were two pieces, so I ordered the ravioli and scallops wrapped... More

Welcome to The Tasting Room located 2 doors from the Grand Theatre in the heart of Downtown London. The Tasting Room is both a bar and great restaurant. The ambiance is warm, casual and yet up scale. Lunch and dinner are served daily, while the extensive appetizer menu offers plenty for those who just want to nibble. Our renown "Wine Flights" offer a unique way to sample various wines!
