Very pleasant and helpful staff, with excellent service. My companion and I stayed for more that the allotted two hours; but, because the restaurant was not too busy, the staff were more than happy that we should do so.

Lunch pre-proms.. Globe artichoke for me, goat curd salad for Mrs J. followed by kennet crayfish and chilli linguine for me and sea bass for Mrs J. All very nicely done, friendly, attentive service, nice fresh bread and no problem sir if you just want tap water, good coffee. great place, we'll be back. Oh, and on the walls nice victorian style prints of technical drawings of plants but also animals. The Gents loo has the snake on the door...

Delicious food and good wine list with some great wine makers listed. My beetroot and goats curd starter was a work of art, my main of grilled salmon, Jersey Royals and monks beard was incredibly fresh and delicious but had a hefty price tag and my trio of sorbets was really fruity, fresh and tangy - the peach was especially tasty. The service was helpful and friendly but a little slow and although at 8pm I was able to talk to my dinner companion, by 10pm it was so noisy I could barely hear what she was saying and we were shouting across the table. Nevertheless I recommend the restaurant for a fun night out with friends but would avoid it if I wanted a romantic evening with my husband.

Sunday lunch had good roasts on offer. I was disappointed at the wines I was told were unavailable after I had ordered them, and then given the standard London restaurant "we're updating our wine list" when they have no intention of doing so. I expected more from them.

We invited some friends to the Botanist. It was our first experience there, we were a group of six. Food was excellent with good selections but very small portions and not as advertised! Wine list was amazing. Service was superb. Unfortunately It was poor value for money. The good news my friends enjoyed the meal to the max! The bad news I was still a bit hungry when I left needing more supplements at home. It is highly recommended but the portions have to be made bigger!

The Botanist is the "default option" for a meal before going on to the Cadogan Hall. Food and wine are very satisfactory, if slightly expensive by my standards, and the only disadvantage is the terrible racket from the bar. I would strongly urge a sound-proof screen between the bar and the dining area.

Restaurant was not that busy when we dined. Food was great, though service was very slow. Waited at least fifteen min before our order was taken. The staff was pleasant and accommodating when at the table or when they got there.

We dined at 18.30. It was very busy outside with lots of noisy young drinkers. Bar area so busy I could not make myself heard in dining room. The waiter was outstanding. Very helpful compared with our last visit when we could not attract the attention of anyone!
The meal was outstanding.
