The most expensive meal I have ever experienced and by some distance the best. Choose seven course option with premium wine matching and everything was superb and beautifully balanced. Especially loved the Foie Gras with the Riesling Auslese match!
Definitely worth every penny!

Hi

The service and setting was exemplary

Starter and desert were both presented and tasted magnifique however the main course of John Dory that both my wife and I chose was extremely disappointing
The portion was tiny
It looked nothing on the plate. A real shame

However it did not spoil the lunch as everything else more than made up for it

Always excellent, except when booked through books table. Do not use their service. It is full of bugs and completely rubbish. But the restaurant is chic, and charming.

Shocked by the low standard of food being served under the roof of such well established London landmark. The head chef might be a two starred chef, the actual people who cook the food in this restaurant are low skilled chefs. From the 7 course dishes ordered, two were served cold when they should have been served hot. Another dish was undercooked to the extent that I wasn't sure if it was safe to eat whilst the remaining dishes tasted bland. Perhaps they simply forgot the seasoning. I will give them credit for the presentation of the dishes, they were very neatly presented. But look is nothing without substance. The restaurant ambience was however very fine with very comfortable furniture. The guys at Michelin needs to re-evaluate this restaurant. If this place is two star rated, then the rating system needs to allow the award of 10 stars. You get my message.
