Reading the below reviews, I was very excited to visit this restaurant after booking online. I travelled to London alone on business and decided to eat at this restaurant on a Sunday evening. It didn't start off well - stood at the door for a few minutes before venturing to the bar to get seated. The staff seemed very disinterested and simply gestured to an empty table. I waited for about 10 minutes before being given a menu and bread - and was given two menus although I was eating alone. Took about 10 minutes after for someone to offer me a drink.
I ordered the grilled mussels to start with. They were boiling hot - and didn't cool even after 10 minutes (couldn't enjoy them as they burnt my lip!). I followed this with the bavette steak. The meat was extremely tough and chewy I only ate 1/4. I told the waiter after my meal and he simply nodded and walked away.
The food wasn't great but the service was the worst I've ever come across. The staff barely spoke, were completely inattentive and I don't think anyone smile. I asked if they were still serving the set menu and the women simply uttered 'no.' The lack of friendly service really ruined the meal for me.
Finally, there was a piano player who started playing after my starter. I don't think he finished an entire song - he was too busy talking and hugging customers, standing up to look and touch money in his tip jar and stopping to take sips of his beer. I just thought this all was slightly unprofessional.
All in all a depressing meal.
