Diner Reviews
  • "went for dinner after business meeting, great top table menu and very filling. Venue, food and wine was fabulous and great environment to chat without being overheard."
    dined on 29/07/2014
  • "We understood that when booking through open table we would have some form of discount or some extras that others wouldn't and we had no such benefits. Everyone was very attentive to us and the experience was wonderful. no member of staff mentioned "open table" to us and so we wonder if, in fact , they know about you. The food and ambience were indeed wonderful but we would wonder about open table again as there seemed to be no benefit to us financially or in the provision of extras"
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "There's a risk that at 0730hrs you feel a tad pallid - but breakfast a 1 Lombard Street should address that challenge. Staff always attentive and capable, food freshly cooked with enough choice for everyone. Highly recommended - but please don't make it too busy!"
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "Very centrally located restaurant almost on top of bank tube station. Service is good and the food is of a high standard. A good choice of menu to suit all tastes which is presented well. Portions a bit on the small side."
    dined on 21/07/2014
  • "Impeccable service, and ordered the set menu offer through opentable & was most impressed. Superb lamb cutlets."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "We were very happy with our dinner. The restaurant was happy to cater for gluten free diets. We chose this restaurant because of the special which was for a three course meal plus appetizer and we were expecting an alcoholic drink as an appetizer so were a bit disappointed to find that it was a small bowl of cold soup. Other than that the meal was lovely."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "It's a wonderful space, the food and service are very good, and the tables are well spaced/it's not too noisy. An enjoyable occasion."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "Visited 1 Lombard Street for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. Service is excellent and the OpenTable menu offers a good choice of delicious dishes for a reasonable price."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "My daughter and I had the open table menu which we considered really good value at £19.50 - delicious food although slightly small portions! Also, great service - except we weren't offered bread! Would definitely go again!"
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "Good breakfast, but the restaurant should open a little before 7.30 as there was a queue of us waiting to get in, not good for business, theirs or ours!"
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "1 Lombard never lets me down. It is unfailingly excellent. The staff are top-class and make me feel special - it is a stand-out in the City where competition is so tough. Well done - please don't change a thing!"
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "The opentable offer was great value and an excellent excuse to visit Lombard Street Brasserie. The service is faultless and the food ordered was excellent - although to charge a £9 supplement for two of the dishes (steak or scallops/prawns) seemed a little excessive - certainly for the fish dish. However, there was a reasonable selection of choices for the main dish overall. Overall, a great dinner with a good atmosphere on a Tuesday evening."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "Went for breakfast with clients, hadn't been for a while and wanted to re-visit - Service was mediocre at best, had to remind waiter about several items we had ordered but they failed to deliver. Three of us ordered the same item Scrambled eggs with salmon, all three had differing portion sizes, with mine being a tiny portion of both eggs & salmon. Pointed this out to the waiter, who just shrugged his shoulders, and then proceeded to share my feedback to the other senior waiter - who both then laughed?! Not the best response for a client with a complaint, even if a minor one. Needless to say I will not be choosing this restaurant for our client meetings again."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "Had business breakfast at 1 Lombard Street. Always found it reliable with good service. Only comment is that I wish they served better toast."
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "We took our son and his friends out for dinner the night before his wedding and we all enjoyed the evening. Good food, attentive service and nice ambience - no free champagne though!"
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "We had the £19.50 deal - 3 courses & appetiser. The food was nice - not amazing but we weren't expecting amazing for that value. The cocktails however were disappointing. Expensive, small servings and we both found them completely average."
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "This is the second time we have been to 1 Lombard St. in the evening and had the 'top table special offer menu' - outstanding quality and value on both occasions. The venue is great - a beautiful building with a lively feel. Service faultless and cheerful. I have also been there for a business lunch - very busy but again good food and service."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "Excellent venue, great food and service. Would visit again."
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "Went for lunch on last Friday - in office dress down grab - smart short sleeved shirt, dark trousers - i.e. smart/casual rather than office smart. Given that I have previously dined there (mid-week, in suit) I had prior experience of the brasserie. It was telling therefore that the service this time was noticably worse. Don't get me wrong, the food was as good as before (hence the score), but the service was much less attentive."
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "I was surprised how quiet this restaurant was for a Thursday night. Food was good and the top table offer is really good value"
    dined on 03/07/2014
  • "it is certainly a spectacular place with it's beautiful atrium. Service was good and attentive and the food tasty and well presented. The gruyere and onion tart was one of the best I have tasted and the tuna steak was cooked perfectly and worked well with Nicoise salad. Only downside, my partners linguine was not hot enough, but this was quickly remedied."
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "To peoples who know difference between average meals and very tasty fine cusiines. Third time at this fine establishment. Quality dining experience in beatiful historic surroundings. Great for city lunch or evening dining."
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "Great for a business breakfast as the service is swift and the food of a very good standard. Bit of a frown at my jeans but should probably expect that in The City!"
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "A great venue for a city lunch. The place is always busy and has a good buzz, although service remains good and swift. The food is excellent, if a little on the pricy side but definitely worth a visit. Very heavily business orientated."
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "Great food and ambience not too noisy for having business discussion yet there was a nice buzz about the restaurant. Food was great and service fast and efficient"
    dined on 23/06/2014
  • "This was my first visit, for a business lunch. Fantastic ambience in an impressive building. Service was excellent and our light meals good quality (duck egg salad and fish cakes). Recommended"
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "Lively atmosphere with good quality food. Conveniently located in the City so one to consider for business meetings."
    dined on 17/06/2014
  • "The waiters were fantastic. Very attentive and efficient."
    dined on 13/06/2014
  • "Perfect for a quick business lunch - good food, quick service"
    dined on 13/06/2014
  • "Delightful air conditioning on a day we so needed it. Excellent food... Decent portions beautifully presented. Table a little too close to the bar (and backsides) which the maitre'd tried to sort. Very good wine list too. When the post work drink brigade left the atmosphere improved."
    dined on 12/06/2014
  • "Had not been to 1 Lombard St for a couple of years - decided to give the special 3 course menu a try. Was pleasantly surprised - the salmon gravalax starter was a winner - small but perfectly formed. My lamb was very cooked well - althought there was not much of it. My rhubarb tarte tartin was delicious - terrific! Tthe wine list is pricey but we found one for £22 which was lovely and just within budget (and European rather than new world which is much preferred!). Overall, we had a lovely evening - one thing I would say is that if you are with a big burly lad, you will need to order him a few extra sides as the meals are very small (fine for little ladies but lacking for the lads)."
    dined on 11/06/2014
  • "Nice place in the heart of the city. Waiters are helpful but not always attentive and available. Food is very well presented and unfortunately quite average. Will return only for drinks unless food quality improves."
    dined on 06/06/2014
  • "Excellent food, fantastic genuine service and good prices for the City, I would definitly come here again."
    dined on 06/06/2014
  • "Food was exceedingly good, especially the prawns and scallops with chilli jam and coconut. Service was so-so. Atmosphere was rushed and hectic and it was extremely loud. It seemed more like a drinking bar than a restaurant. Not a good place to have a conversation. On the expensive side."
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "Visited 1 Lombard St with 2 other couples to celebrate several birthdays and the food and service didn't disappoint. The set menu prices are extremely good value and choice is adequate - even with 3 bottles of wine the bill came to <£50ph. Service is attentive without being fussy - the restaurant is bright and airy and comfortable. Only downside was how croweded and noisy it was (a victim of their own success I guess). Having the bar in the middle of the restaurant means that increasingly noisy drinkers make it difficult to have a conversation at the table without shouting. However, with food and service this good that's a minor irritation and I'd recommend this for anyone."
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "Very good, great atmosphere and great Open Table offer"
    dined on 04/06/2014
  • "Second time here for a business lunch and would go again. Food is great, with a decent selection for most tastes, and the brasserie itself is light and spacious. Overall a great experience."
    dined on 03/06/2014
  • "The Open table set meal was a bargain. The restaurant setting is lovely and, importantly, the tables are spaced well apart. Service was spot on. The food was nice but the ham hock terrine to start was terrible - tough and tasteless and, unfortunately, a couple of things on the set menu weren't available. "
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "Very good food and service; thoroughly recommended"
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "The special offer is great value. The food here is top class. I had the tempura courgette flower, trout ending with rhubarb tart absolutely delicious. It's a great looking place. Although being smack in the middle of the city means the obvious clientele are there."
