    the service was exceptional from the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out. The food was incredbly goos value with the toptable deal and chef's extrs were perfect. The toptable menu is limiting so beware. If you want more variety then this menus is not for you - choose the al la carte!

    Appalling service: did not offer to take my coat; did not greet upon entering; food very substandard; it seemed that they did not like the fact that we did not have wine and therefore our bill was too low. The cloak room attendants' attitude was another low point: my colleague had misplaced her ticket and the ill mannered lady was annoyed at this fact, ergo did not offer any help at all and served other customers. Incredulous. Dreadful from start to finish.

    I had heard about 1 Lombard Street Brasserie and walked passed it every day on my way to and from work. I had previously booked and had to cancel because my friend could not make it. This time I was not going to cancel and was going on my own. However, at the last minute I invited another friend. We both enjoyed the food and the venue was a great talking point. The location is also perfect. The service was impeccable too. Thank you.

    I was very disappointed by the food.I have eaten there several times and found it to be very good. We ordered the risotto as a starter as they had run out of the advertised starter .The risotto was inedible.The rice was so hard it was almost uncooked.It also looked completly wrong for a risotto with no creaminess whatsoever.Not sure how it got out of the kitchen We sent it back.The waiter asked if it was too al dente..we replied that it was completely undercooked and he didnt look as though he belived us. The flavour was good when it arrived again 20 mins later but not a good start to a meal.

    For the most part our experience at 1 Lombard was good. It's a nice restaurant and the staff are very attentive and helpful. The £20 three course deal is very good value although adding drinks will hike the bill up a lot. The only problems were the roast cod with shrimp was tiny when all our other mains were lovely and generous and the creme caramel was a scrambled disaster. The lamb and steaks were great as were all the entrees.

    I've been before, but this time was left disappointed by the set meal we ate - soup appetiser had a cover of olive oil leaving a weird taste in the mouth - had to ask for spoons for the soup because it was too thick to slip easily out of the espresso cups; salmon sushi nicely flavoured, too much avocado; pork belly dry but mis-matched spicy ingredients; lamb shanks well-cooked, but a little dry; parsnips dry & woody & green beans hard & undercooked; dessert (coffee creme caramel) the best course, but sauce was more like a packet sauce. Wine was okay; service was patchy & at times, inattentive.Rosemary bread was delicious.Based on this experience, I would not return, even at the set menu price of £19.50 for 3 courses, per person.

  • Surprise Birthday Day Dinner
    Miss007Foodie
    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.

  • Special dinner with father
    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).

    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

    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.

    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.

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
