    I was dining here with a couple of girlfriends, and as we was sitting by the wall we didn't get much attention from the waiters and waitress. While we spent some time waiting for someone to take our order we accidently spilt a drink. An annoyed waitress came over and put some towels on the floor and one on the table. We kept on apologising for being clumsy but we did not get any acknowlegement and was not once offered to get another drink. After we ordered our food the main took over 35mins to arrive and we had to chase it up. A waitress came out and apologiesed sincerely and that our main will be with us shortly, I think at that time we gathered that they had forgot our order. Overall it was ok. But I don't think we would visit again.

    Enjoyed a nice evening on Tuesday and the restaurant was surprisingly busy which probably affected my experience. The set menu deals were good value, but the service was a little patchy (due to them being full) and the food a little below par (but still decent).

    We had a fantastic meal on the 3 courses for £19.50 offer. I was impressed with the food. Service was hit and miss. We were served by three different waiters, two of whom were very charming. The other waitress gave me a stale piece of bread and when I asked if I could have a different piece and reached for the basket, she jerked it away from me and told me off pretty rudely. I was quite taken aback especially since this was in front of work colleagues. Lucky they weren't clients. Apart from that blip, a good meal and really terrific value with the special offer.

    Have not managed to get in a couple of times at short notice recently, so was pleased to finally go back to 1 Lombard St. Especially pleased to see a OT deal as well! Deal was good VFM in terms of quality of dishes, though was a little hungry again by the time I got home. Prob would order a side next time. Very good wine list. Attentive service though wine was "refilled" when glasses had barely gone down a centimetre - a little crass/overenthusiastic, and the dishes were served in pretty short order. No-one refilled our table afterwards (we went to the bar area) so there was no particular need for speed. Anyhow great atmosphere as ever and would go back again just for that.

    I took a colleague to 1 Lombard Street Brasserie for an early evening meal. It was quiet when we arrived at 4:30 but began to fill up after 5 and was buzzing by the time we finished! Try the duck Caesar salad starter, it's great! The Dover sole was lovely and taken off the bone at the table. It's a little pricy, but it is the City! Definitely worth a visit!

    4 members of our family met here and were delighted with the service and care taken with one of our party who cannot eat wheat or dairy products. Great care was taken to ensure he did not have anything that might upset him. The set meal was really good value with a good choice of food and everything was beautifully cooked. Our only comment was that the music, especially the drumming was intrusive and made it difficult to have a conversation which could make it difficult for a business meal or special occasion

    Pleasant bustling room, good attentive service. The menu was interesting, like salmon tartar. The combination of poached egg Barbqued salmon fillet and hollendase was delicious. However, the amuse Bouche of leek and potatoe soup needed a spit of something like truffle oil not swamping in cheap olive oil. The flavours on the salmon tartar were also unbalanced, more shallot or even capers would have helped and we both had to add seasoning and lemon juice. What is more a meal billed as three courses for £20 each ended up as nearly £100 with only wine and coffee.

    Sitting next to the gloriously art deco circular bar which is lit from above by an equally art deco domed roof to enjoy wonderful food, excellent decor and flawless service made me think I had flashed back to a bygone age. We had beef carpaggio followed by thai green chicken curry and I can't think of a way in which I would look to improve either. The malva pudding that followed was excellent and made me feel like I was back in southern Africa - cooked to perfection and drizzled liberally with an ideal, accompanying sauce. Spot on. Looking forward to going back.

    The Brasserie is an unusual setting and a lovely place to have a business meal or supper after work. Due to its location, the venue obviously attracts a lot of city types and the mixed restaurant/bar area has a very vibrant feel. The food was great and the set menu choices were varied enough that you didn't feel constrained. The wine list was impressive and the service could not be faulted. Would highly recommend.

    1 Lombard Street provides a good impression on arrival. I had informed the restaurant of my dairy allergy. The Open Table special offer menu offered good value. However I could not have the appetiser of pea soup but nothing else was offered as an alternative. I had to have the salmon as main course which was very dry and overcooked and no sauce accompaniment. I was offered a fruit salad which was basically fruit in a bowl - sliced kiwi, black berries, raspberries etc. with no jus. My eating experience was very poor because I have a dairy allergy. For a restaurant of this calibre I was extremely disappointed. A request for a second glass of champagne took 10 minutes to appear.

    About my zillionth time in the venue, always lovely, classic white cloth on the tables etc 3 courses for 20£ ... portions small ish, food tasty, not scrimping on quality. Had Carpaccio... "entrecote" ... was just stack and chunky chips... go round the corner if you want authentic entrecote. Nice moist sponge pudding. Cant go wrong, service a little patch, but Tuesday and £65 all in for 2 to eat - I'll be back again.

    Very nice set menu with good options for the mains. I wasn't so keen on the Red Mullet starter, which was like a fishy pate. However my main course of Salmon was delightful and both the salmon and asparagus were cooked to perfection. Desserts were on the slightly boring side, with only an interesting looking panacotta and Malva Cake. I had the Malva cake.

    My friend and I took advatage of an open table offer for a 3 course meal at 1 Lombard Street. The service was excelllent and the restaurant beautiful. Unfortunately we both found that the food was on the bland side and was lacking in seasoning. I had the feta and pine nut salad which was ok. Salmon for main which was bland and needed more flavour. Food is on the safe side and It did not leave me wanting more unfortunately.

    Two visits in past month... cold plates of scrambled egg served both times. Bonus... The plate was actually hotter than the eggs this time though (the plates are never warm enough... Which is half the problem). The quality of the food used to make up for the poor service at breakfast here. Not any more it seems. Shame because the bacon is the best in the City. Please sort ASAP. Not good enough sorry.

    We had the Top Table offer of 3 course £19.50 and the food was excellent. Service was very good and the waiters attentive but not too much so that it becomes annoying. I only gave 4 stars for ambience which was not the fault of the restaurant but because of some other customers who had obviously been there all afternoon. They were not too bad just a little noisy at times. Overall it was a lovely place to meet with friends for a catch up.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
