Description: Missouri Angel restaurant in London, near Tower Hill and Fenchurch Street, is the place to go for modern American cuisine on the east side of the City. Formerly the Angel pub, Missouri Angel is now an elegant restaurant on two floors redolent of prairie simplicity in its d��cor of neutral walls, wooden floors, white-linened tables and an air of calm and enjoyment throughout. Missouri Angel is not only an American restaurant, it���s also a mighty fine steakhouse featuring grain-fed beef that���s been aged from four to six weeks in Nebraska before being perfectly seared and landing on your plate. Other dishes include sweet corn chowder with pancetta and St Louis style ribs as well as fish and fowl dishes. The pinstriped clientele packs the place out at lunch for the fresh, seasonal ingredients, the sundrenched dining rooms and the friendly service. The wine list roams the globe in an open-minded way.

Came here for dinner on the premise of getting some high class American classics and was a little disappointed at the distinctly european but with a few token American-style dishes on the menu.

My starter was a "Southern style lobster fritter" which sounded great but ended up being 3 enormous balls of mostly breadcrumbs and so over flavoured that I struggled to detect any actual lobster. Wouldn't have complained but the starter was over £11 on its own!

Next up was the main course of "Midwestern meatloaf, sweet cured bacon and truffle mash". A plate appeared with enough food to feed at least 2 people. Now normally I wouldn't complain at this but the meatloaf was wrapped in undercooked and fatty bacon, with the loaf itself being pretty dry and flavour less. The exact opposite of southern style in my opinion. To be fair, the (again ginormous!) pile of mash was creamy and tasty but I struggled to detect any truffle flavours. Disappointing and at nearly £18 well over priced.

I was also amazed to find that not a single American beer was on offer - surely a place with the name "Missouri Angel" would be able to sell something other than the standard Peroni, Heineken etc?!

In conclusion, I was very disappointed having eaten an amazingly tasty and cheap meal at the much better and just round the corner Bodeans the previous night. If you want delicious, authentic and well priced American food don't come here, go to Bodeans!!

I have been here several times, and food has always been incredibly tasty... Whether you choose to have have crabcake, lobster fritters, salmon, sea bass, a rack of lamb or a New York strip, yo won't be disappointed - it's American food at its best, simple but delicious. And the private dining rooms are absolutely unique... just be prepared to for a steep climb up the stairs...

Arrived a bit late at 9-45pm,but waiter Muji ensured we were seated and our meal prepared.
The blackened salmon was excellent as were the sides of mash and mushrooms.
Pecan tart was delicious as a dessert.
unfortunately we were the only diners as the evenings tend to be quieter than the lunchtime trade(and we were late) so the atmosphere was not applicable.
The only thing I would say to the restaurant is that they should not add 12.5% service charge to the bill,as I would have preferred the waiter to have the money as he went out of his way to accomodate us.
Suggest you book in before 9pm as they finish serving at 10

Lunched here several times, fairly imaginative menu, obviously loosely based on USA, plus excellent service make this a place I would highly recommend. On my last visit, last week, asked for a medium rare steak but it came up over cooked but I was very impressed with the way my "complaint" was dealt with and how quickly a properly cooked steak was returned to my table. Also, a nice touch whereby the restaurant email you on the morning to confirm your booking.

As a venue for a Business lunch this is superb, was here with 4 clients, the food and wine were very good, as was the service and ambience, on the down side it can be very expensive, but then again this is on the edge of the "city"
