This is only really a 'good' rather than 'very good' as one or two elements were missing. Great location and wonderfully laid out seating. We were in the restaurant rather than the brasserie and were met by a very friendly lady who showed us to our table but we then had to wait 15 minutes for a pre lunch drink. Menu was good and there was also a fixed price menu which was extremely reasonable and had good options - 2 courses for £19.75. The main menu looked a bit expensive in places, eg £30 for sea bass. The wine list was a bit on the pricey side too and if you moved off the 'house' list you were straight into the £40 per bottle territory. Starter was amazing (haggis, neaps and tatties - it does have a Scottish theme after all) and portion sizes were perfect. My only real grumble was the service which was a bit average -our main courses were brought out but our starter plates were still in front of us in spite of us having finished some 15 minutes earlier.

We visited for a birthday celebration and to see The Jessica Lauren 4 and Jocelyn Brown. By booking a table we not only enjoyed great live music but also had a very pleasant meal. The menu had a decent variety and the quality was very good ( try the excellent cheese board!). Our server was first rate and the overall attention to customer service was very good. If you are into whiskey there is an outstanding whiskey bar. A great place to see live music (Jools Holland is the patron) and enjoy a meal at the same time. If you are driving to the venue the Canary Wharf car park is good value after 6.00pm.

Well, it was ok. On a gorgeous London day, everyone wanted to be outside and we didn't care as all we wanted to do was eat so we opted to be the only ones eating on the first level indoors. The servers were otherwise focused on the throngs of people on the terrace (can't say as I blame them!) and we were forgotten about "a little". Not a crime but not bringing us back, either.

Our first visit to this venue (birthday), we booked premium seating in the restaurant, which allowed us to keep the table all night for the band. Check them out they were called The Congo faith healers, they are on You tube and have their own website. All I can say is absolutely brilliant, their music was spot on and really entertaining. The service from arrival to when we left was top class, nothing was too much trouble, there was a great atmosphere. The food was delicious and there was an amazing menu of wines should you want them, we had the house Rose, really nice.
To keep costs down you could dine downstairs in the Oyster bar downstairs and then see the entertainment, this still allowed a good view of the band. Not cheap but good value for the money.

I took some friends for dinner as we all like Jazz, and the concept sounded interesting. Our first complaint was the pricing of the wines, they were ridiculously expensive. The service was ok, but lacked warmth and the food was ok but nothing brilliant. I was so looking forward to having dinner here but left really disappointed.
