I see the mixed reviews - but as a New Yorker who frequents many high end restaurants,1 Lombard Street truly delivered. We were a large group for lunch. Food was prepared nicely and service was quite good; I had fish and chips for nostalgia sake,...More

Standard breakfast meeting joint for City types. Easy. Service is attentive, food out quite fast. Prices are more reasonable than you might think from the look of the place. Solid choice and easy to find as it is right by Bank station.

I go here for breakfast periodically. The service is very nice, and you can usually get a table without a reservation. However, I would recommend you make one. The scrambled eggs and the avocado on toast are both worth ordering.

Description
1 Lombard Street is not only the Square Mile's most established restaurant but arguably it's best placed, sited in pole position next to Mansion House, the official residence of the Lord Mayor of London, and directly opposite the Bank of England.Housed in a former Grade II-listed bank, it was opened in 1998 by former banker Soren Jessen and comprises a restaurant, Brasserie, private dining and events rooms.Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, five days a week, the bustling 200 seater Brasserie is suited to all tastes, budgets and occasions.Casually elegant, warm and inviting, it features the building's stunning glass cupola – a centrepiece dome designed by Italian architect Pietro Agostini.The food here is comforting and classic - the lamb cutlets and salt and pepper squid are genuine City favourites.There's a formidable choice of steaks and many delicious desserts, including chocolate fondant with soft pistachio ice cream and passion fruit creme brulee. 1 Lombard Street is where the City meets for breakfast, lunch and dinner, launches new businesses, signs deals and celebrates profits. And it's even where the City gets married.
