“Faultless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

We went here on a Friday night and the atmosphere was beautiful. Such a tranquil place in the the centre of London. Try and get there while it's still light to make the most of the terrace view!

Food was superb, beautifully delicate flavouring. The service was perfect, friendly and attentive without being too pretentious or over powering.

We are already planning our return!

“A wonderful evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

We have a wonderful evening for my niece's 18th birthday , the service was fantastic and friendly, we mainly chose from the set menu but a few changes were made to satisfy fussy eaters, nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
The food was lovely, portions generous and presentation beautiful.
I would definitely eat here again it was excellent value for money and the staff just lovely.

“Nice Evening Out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Would recommend this restaurant for an up-scale dining experience. The four of us started with oysters, foie gras and escargot (the best choice). Entrees were the canard, turbo, salmon and veal, which turned out to be a huge chop (not cutlet as per the menu). Do not miss ordering the soft mash; rich with butter and creamy; the wilted spinach was also very good.

Service was efficient and professional. We never felt the courses came too quickly or too slowly. Very good wine list.

Enjoy!

“Could D'o Better.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

We had late guests arrive in London and we wanted a place to go. We tried The Bleeding Heart. Full. Looked at these great Offers on London and found this restaurant. Quite famous I understand. The evening standard were doing an offer. £30 a head. Great value we thought and knowing the wine and the add on swill take it higher, not a problem. We did The Savoy last time on Book that Table. We arrived and nice place. We sat down and still a nice place. Took the offer meal and still a nice place. We are 4 so they knew £120 was a dead cert. £300 later and I am writing this review. The staff need to be smarter in their knowledge of Getting The Money from the Punters. We had 2 bottles of wine. I could have drunk 4. We had an extra 2 Salads- Mixed as the waiter said in parrot fashion back to me. We had Boiled New Potatoes We had Espinache We had ticked root vegetables. We had the pud and a coffee each. We were the last to leave. I feel it's a great place for business luncheons and a Very Early Evening Dinner. On the way home and as our guest left London. It's the First Time I have Not given a Tip over the Mandatory Bill. The money wasn't the issue. The Attitude of The Staff Is. I won't be returning. The Pub below is better, at least they told us we had 20 mins to closing. I even bought the girl serving us. "Drink for You". That was the best £27 spent. Should have had dinner there, at least it would have been appreciated.
