Went here with my boyfriend on a whim one night. Apparently you have to make reservations in advance even during the week! We were going to find another spot to go when the hostess ran outside to find us (in January) to say there was a table leaving earlier than expected and we could have it. Super nice of her.... More

Whether we're stopping in for a meal, or just a quick snack and a glass of the wonderful "Butternut" chardonnay (my favourite), the Tasting Room never disappoints.

We did a share meal and each of us ordered 2 appetizers. The food and service were both fantastic. Would definitely come back again.

As time goes by I have acquired a different taste for fine food. This restaurant does capture great cuizine with amazing service along with also a reasonable dollar value. Way to go!!

We go to the tasting room quiet often , and I believe that it is one of the best places in London. They have a variety of choices , and the food is consistently good. Excellent service as well. I would recommend for couples, friends, and business meetings. Less so for families.

We went here for lunch and it started out nicely with good drinks. We ordered duck wings, mushroom ravioli, mussels, and garlic and artichoke dip. The mussels and ravioli were very good but the duck was covered in way too much sauce. Unfortunately, when my boyfriend bit into the dip there was a large piece of a dish in his... More

Hello Leah; I have read your review, as well as the other Facebook reviews left by you, Rebecca and Stephen. I think that posting numerous reviews with the same experience is a tad malicious. May I suggest that if a server does not react to a situation that needs attention, please ask for a manager? A manager would have bent... 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!
