Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked a table for dinner online and checked by phone that we were in the restaurant and not downstairs. We arrived and were told that our table would be ready in about 10 minutes so we were shown downstairs to wait. Apart from being...served drinks - but had to remind someone about the water we had asked for - we were ignored. About 15 minutes after we were sent downstairs we asked a waitress when our table would be ready and again were told 10 minutes. We waited another 15/20 minutes we got up and left. There was no sign of a free table upstairs or of one becoming available. During the time we were downstairs apart from our drinks order we were totally ignored.More

Ate here with 7 members of my family today. What a lovely experience! Friendly professional staff, amazing food and superb adaptation for the one gluten intolerant member of our group. I wish I was local and could come back asap!

Despite leaving a message and emailing no one responded to me concerning my intolerances which I found worrying. On arrival they had noted one intolerance but not the second. However they advised me what I could eat which was one starter, mains with exceptions and...one dessert. The Amuse Bose made especially for me and starter were both tasty. The roast beef was tender but we all had two very small slices and the pork was dry. My husband thought the roast potatoes were soggy. The service was mediocre. Overall we’d rather spend a little bit more on The French Table which is exemplary. However, in the week I have had a good lunch here.More

We had a sublime meal here for our anniversary last night and the restaurant added extra touches for the occasion, from a handwritten card to a beautifully personalised dessert plate. All dishes were absolutely delicious, creative, seasonal and executed with such finesse. Great to see...a female chef in the kitchen too! We’re lucky to live around the corner and will be back regularly!More

My business colleague choose this restaurant for a catch up close to his house I stayed locally and the restaurant was a 5 minute walk from by loggings Situated on bustling road the restaurant was outstanding! Bright and funky interior, I was seated quickly and...had a perfect view of the interior bar and open kitchen I quaffed a couple of drinks whilst awaiting and when Andy arrived we ordered a bottle of Gavi and selected our fare I opted for crispy pork belly and stuffed Rabbit terrine and both finished with a wonderful cheese board and a port ! All was exceptional and a wonderful evening was enjoyed by all I will definitely returnMore

We had an amazing dinner at No97! As it was a Saturday evening it was very busy and our table was for outside. As it had been raining we were unsure whether to stay in case we got wet. Hulio the gentleman who was looking...after us was very kind and said it was up to us but there was a heater and canopy so the rain would not affect us. So so glad we stayed! Hulio and his team were so nice and hospitable and looked after us so well. The dinner was a set menu and everything was delicious! My mum who is hard to please when eating out said this was one of the best meals out she has had so that's saying something! From the service to the divine food it was such a lovely evening! We were so lucky as the rain had stopped too! Hulio was so friendly and a pleasure to converse with, my children who both speak Spanish had a nice chat with him too! We will definitely be returning soon! Thank you to all the staff for making our evening so lovely!More

The team were amazing and made us feel very welcome, the food was outstanding. They have a new manager, he was great, he took time to talk to us. The food was modern but with some great twists. I would highly recommend 97.

The food is excellent here, but the really knowledgeable staff made this special introducing each dish and making each course exemplary - that is up until recently. Had dinner last night - and the waiting staff were average at best, hanging around the pass, little...time for customers, and generally back on the average scale. The food is here around the best in the area, and the staff made the difference. But no more. Will be looking for other contenders for top spot now which is a shame as was a loyal customer.More

I took three friends for the first time to what I consider is the best restaurant in Surbiton. The food was fantastic as usual and my friends loved the amuse bouche and the attentive staff. I had the glazed mackerel, which was wonderful. The stone...bass, which was really good and the burnt orange cheesecake, which was awesome! The only disappointing dish was the mushroom risotto, which my friend said was bland. A great evening though and we'll all be going back soon. Keep up the good work!More

I was treated to lunch here by a dear friend. We weren't keen on having the Mushroom Risotto so the kitchen made us Courgette Risotto instead. It is the BEST risotto I have EVER tasted, so you really should put this on the menu. Also...we both had the Mango Cheesecake for pudding...DIVINE!!!! Thank you for such a wonderful dining experience.More

Starter was underwhelming mainly because I was expecting it to be hot- but the main course of chicken was absolutely superb. The cheese plate was great and overall the evening was great. Excellent vibe and wonderful staff . Thanks to all.
