“Worth the price”
Reviewed 7 July 2011

I try to reserve the rating "Excellent" since there are some restaurants that are in a stratospheric realm worth of an exceptional score. The River Room at the Savoy is such a place. From the moment you enter the Savoy lobby, you feel the richness of the environment. Passing through a spectacular cocktail area to the restaurant looking out toward the Thames, whets your appetite and raises expectations. You will not be disappointed. Service is impeccable and the food (Dover sole for our entire table) is perfectly prepared and presented. Yes, this may have been the most expensive meal I have ever enjoyed, but, it was so wonderful an experience that the check did not counter the pleasure. Save up and go for a very special occasion.

“Pre-theatre dinner amazing bargain!”
Reviewed 29 December 2010

27th December for pre-theatre dinner with family in the River Room. Had cocktails in the American Bar first - slightly wobbly service but great nibbles and superb cocktails. The River Room is attractive and furnished well with very comfortable seats. The set menu for pre theatre dinner had 3 starters, 3 mains, and 3 puddings. Exceptional value at £24 for two courses and £29 for three courses. I had a lobster starter which was to die for and then fillet steak. Despite being there for 1 hour 40 minutes, we only managed two courses as the service was slow - although the staff were very nice. Would definitely use it again for pre-theatre dinner. A la carte is reassuringly mind-bogglingly expensive if you eat at a later time. I think pre-theatre menu is from 5.30pm to 7pm.
