    Understated contemporary restaurant that is an ideal place to entertain professional clients. A small menu of excellent dishes means that choosing needn't take all evening and the quality and delivery time are assured. The winner list follows the same theme- quality over quantity. And at around £55 a head for three courses with wine and coffee, the value is excellent too.

    Food was good quality, ambience and service both excellent - but the discount was not applied. Was in a meeting and did not want to quibble about the bill - but won't be booking there again as for the price, without the offer, you don't get much for your money!

    Staff were very friendly & accommodating. Ambience was lovely. But food was nothing special. Everything was over seasoned! Sausages on child's menu was dry & overcooked. Served super hot sweet chill in sauce with spring rolls on children's menu. Only went because of TT 50% discount on food. Would've been very unhappy if we had to pay full price on food.

    No wonder the restaurant was so empty on Easter Monday as their food was very salty. The stone bass and duck leg we had were badly cooked, highly recommeded the chef to taste the food before serving.

  • The set menu was very limited
    3lovlies
    Dined on 19/2/2014
    The set menu was very limited choice but the 50% off a la carte was excellent value and the portions were full size not the usual 70% size when you choose a deal. Food was well displayed, tasty and in large portions. So much so we could only manage 1 dessert between 3. The staff were helpful, shame the restaurant suffers from extreme drafts from the street doors opening at each end (same problem as last time we visited). Not very atmospheric but that's always difficult in this type of hotel offshoot restaurant, however a good layout with tables well spaced. Overall though a really good eating experience. We may try this venue again in the summer as there is outside seating too.

    Dined on 14/2/2014
    I booked up this restaurant for valentines and had the 5 course tasting menu. There wasn't anything spectacular about the meal and the last course was just a baked apple in pastry. Considering it was the last course I would say by far it was the worst. Presentation was ok but the sizing a of the courses were strange with starter and pre starter being bigger then the main and the desert being bigger then anything else. The fish course was over cooked and chewy and the vegetarian option I had was very disappointing as it basically identical to the duck course without the duck. I wouldn't return to this restaurant as I felt what we paid was overpriced to what we had.

    Dined on 7/2/2014
    The food was ok for the half price deal but definitely not worth the full price. The service was awful we had to ask repeatedly for the menu (we had to go and get the waiter to come over to take order), water was not replenished so again had to repeatedly ask. Meanwhile the staff were standing around chatting, especially one who was showing guests to the table who kept messing around and signing through to another staff member from the hotel reception over our heads. We had to wait a ridiculous time for just two courses - by the time pudding arrived the ice cream had completely melted into a sauce, they did offer to replace but we didn't have the time, would not return, even for a deal.

    Its rare you find a good food deal in the City on a Friday lunch and with some very nice options. Surprisingly the place was quite quiet and the service was a little slow so probably worth deciding order quickly if on tight lunchtime schedule.

    We needed to eat somewhere close to the Tower of London and the Addendum came up trumps. We were a party of 4 including a vegetarian. We chose the 3 course set meal and found both food and service to be very good. The staff were friendly and although the restaurant was very quiet the atmosphere was good. We would go to the Addendum again.

    While the serving staff were attentive and friendly, but disappeared entirely once coffees were served, the food was brought to the table already cold. The kitchen has no understanding of the difference between cooking a steak (most expensive item on the menu) medium rare or well done. Both orders were served well done - and cold.

    WRLGVIP
    Dined on 16/7/2013
    Booked a table outside hoping to enjoy a sunny London lunchtime, but Addendum is in the middle of a building site, so it is noisy, dusty and has trucks arriving every few minutes. Service was slow and not attentive. For business lunches service needs to be much slicker that this. Food was nicely presented but didn't taste particularly great. Toptable 50% off food meant that two courses were only £12.50 but still I would not go back.

    We used Top table's 50 percent discount offer on our recent trip to London. We were surprised to be offered a fabulous table in the window.The restaurant was bright and airy, even on a very hot summer evening. All of the staff were very attentive, ensuring our experience was pleasurable. We chose a starter, a main and a side each but could not manage a dessert. The food quality, temperature and presentation were all superb. All of this, plus a bottle of decent wine, and 12.5% service totalled just over £50. We will return!!

    We booked a table in Addendum as we were staying in the Apex City of London and arriving fairly late. It was an offer of £16.95 for 2 course including a glass of wine which seemed like very good value. However, the choice was very poor - 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 puddings. The service was good and friendly, and wine nice, but the choice of menu was disappointing - salmon, sausage and mash, and a veggie dish as mains. Being a Northern Lass, I expect to get my veggies included, but they were charging £4 for extras. Service charge was added at 12.5% too. I felt the choice was poor and portions small. There were quite a few restaurants nearby, so I'd choose these next time.

    The food was very late and when it eventually arrived it was cold. We asked if there were any problems while we were waiting, but staff said the delay was due to the amount of customers and that they were short staffed. However quite a few customers who ordered later than us had their food coming out before ours and within reasonable time. We were then overcharged on the service charge (I had a 50% of voucher, but I was still charged service in relation to 100% of the bill), service charged was well over 20% of the bill. After the problems with the meal we were not happy in the slightest.

    We went to Addendum on Wednesday evening. The restaurant was almost empty and overlooks a building site so there was not much ambience. We ate off the set menu which was good. The food was well cooked, interesting and excellent value. But we go out regularly in London and won't be coming back here.

    We booked for a lunch here and my companion and I enjoyed the food, ambience and good service! It is rather quiet, which is a shame, as they deserve to have ore customers. The food was well presented and very flavoursome, and the unobstrusive nature of the service added to our enjoyment of the total expereince. I would certainly go again.

    TheAllFather
    Dined on 16/2/2013
    The restaurant is very much what one may expect from a central London hotel, clean, smart, stylishly decorated. The menu was relatively small but this is by no means a bad sign. The food was very good (although my steak, despite being cooked to a perfect medium rare, was salted a little too heavily) and the wine menu presented a reasonable choice of very drinkable reds and whites. The only real drawback is that, while the advertising for the restaurant makes a big deal of its full height panoramic windows... and its proximity to the river and tower of London... it doesn't mention that the restaurant itself in on a small backstreet and, at the time of our visit, gave a stunning view of a building site over the road.
