  • Surprise Birthday Day Dinner

    Dined on 17/10/2014
    I booked a table for 3 for a surprise birthday dinner. We dined in the cosy section of the restaurant. We loved every dish that came to the table even the apéritif. My starter was the pork belly on a bed of Barley and really enjoyed the kick of spice. For main: Lamb shank with veg, as soon as I touched the meat it fell off the bone. All three demolished the plate. Our Hungarian Waiter was the best. He accommodated my needs at every point of the evening. He even recommended a Hungarian sweet desert wine to compliment my dish. The desert was a super treat. Bread & Butter pudding with ice cream, lush! We also received a complimentary desert with a birthday note & candle written with chocolate. My waiter made the evening and I will come back.

    MoreWinePlease
    Dined on 3/10/2014
    Decided to take my father out for dinner. Some lethal martinis to start. A meaty Puligny Montrachet followed. Steak tartare was executed perfectly but would have liked some shallot or spring onion on side. Charcuterie board was balanced with fatty and lean meats of various cures and styles. Lamb rack was succulent and of obvious good provenance. Sea bass was cooked to perfection. The Gevrey Chambertin 2010 was decanted during entrees, opened up well and was extremely moreish. Fantastic for a youngish vintage. We really shouldn't have decided on armagnacs, but we do like Signonac (which I see a lot of these days, as it it such good value).

    Dined on 2/10/2014
    A potentially lovely evening was ruined on Thursday evening by terrible service. The waiter mentioned they had a big event on but as a diner that is not my issue, that is poor management of resources. Well over 2 hours for 3 courses, offered one drink all evening. The opentable menu was quite small and I had to have some of my collegues food to top-up my meal. Overall, won't be going back

    Regularexec
    Dined on 2/10/2014
    We were a table for three with a set menu for £19.50 - which really was quite good value as there is significant choice (although soem with £ supplements) on the set menu. The food was what one would expect for a restaurant of this quality, with the exception that one of our party found a small plastic ball inside their mint icecream! Management was very apologetic. The service was hugely inattentive and our waiter seemed below average in all respects - although his manager came to his aid on a number of occasions, which suggests he may have been new. Wine was good, although a little expensive by the glass.

    The restaurant itself is beautiful, a wonderful romantic ambience and the staff go out of their way to provide exceptional service and make diners feel welcome. We decided on the mackerel and entrecote steak as part of our 3-course meal. every course was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. We were also able to sample a few of the cocktails on offer, whilst a little pricey they are a must. The icing on the cake, however, came when a member of staff approached me asking for my partner's name (cleverly concealed in a menu!) I wondered what they had in store. Our dessert arrived, with "Happy Birthday Chris" iced around my partner's plate. He was chuffed! A lovely surprise gesture. We look forward to dining here again!

    Dined on 1/10/2014
    We wanted to have a family dinner. One of us works in Kennington, one in Canary Wharf, and the other three live in North London, so we wanted a suitable central London location. We decided on Bank, and the restaurant is well located, directly above the tube station. On our arrival, we were greeted very warmly, and shown straight to our well-positioned circular table. For the next three hours we were very well served with food and drinks, and allowed a lot of time for us to talk and catch-up, which is what we wanted. We had chosen the opentable special 3-course menu, with free appetiser, and so our final bill was very reasonable. More importantly, we all really enjoyed the food. So, all in all, it was exactly what we wanted.

    This is a good restaurant to dine at in the city, but is some way off of the standard you receive in the hotel restaurants of Mayfair. The food was delicious, the only negative was that the lamb shank was not particularly hot.

    The food is good and the ambience is great, but they were busy (two big parties) and the service suffered as a result. We waited a long time for our mains (so long that we joked they had gone to forge the pan to fry the fish). The Maître d was embarrassed by the wait and said he would waive the service charge (without us asking), but it was still on the bill when it arrived and we had to ask for it to be removed. Will go back as I know it can be better than this.

    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.

    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.
