Diner Reviews
  • "We went to entrée on Friday night to celebrate my husband's birthday. He got a nice free glas of prosecco and a birthday candle. Food was great, staff friendly, and we enjoyed the piano music after a nice wine. All to have an enjoyable relaxed evening."

  • "great food ..... great presentation ...... enjoyed the food - great favours. Would come back again."

  • "Another great meal at Entree. Great good and service. We took advantage of the 2 courses and prosecco for £19.50 offer from open table which meant it didn't cost an arm and a leg either. Would thoroughly recommend."

  • "I made a last min booking here on sat night as I've been before & its been great in the past. It did not disappoint, although I did feel the portions seemed smaller than before and the prices were higher. I ordered the chicken main course, which was £17.50 and it was basically just 2 slices of chicken breast and 1 ''slice' (in equal size to one of the pieces of chicken) of potatoe for that amount of money. It felt like rations! And, due to my companions small serving of pasta, I gave him one of my pieces of chicken! We woke up starving! Also, upon booking, I thought were were on a deal where we got 2 course and a glass of prosecco for £19.50 but this menu was not offered to us. Maybe you need to ask which is naughty...Hmm"

  • "I chose this place on the recommendation of a friend and was not dissappointed. It is reasonably expensive but no more than other similar standard restaurants in the area. The ambience is really amazing, they have a little bar with live music downstairs and the night we were there the music was really fantastic. The food was not amazing but certainly not bad and we were a late booking so that may have been the reason that the food was a little below standard. Would definitely return."

  • "Have wanted to go here for a while and Entrée did not disappoint. The waitress was friendly but not overbearing, making excellent recommendations for the food and drink. The duck was cooked to perfection and triple cooked chips were delicious. Even the green beans had the edge. My boyfriend had the steak tartare - beautiful mix of flavours and the egg cream was something else. portion sizes were good but not too big to compete with and the chocolate fondant was divine too. Not a cheap option but would certainly recommend for a special occasion."

  • "There were 5 of us for a Tuesday evening dinner. Not sure if the BYO was specific to a Tuesday, but the £5 corkage certainly made this a great deal. The food was delicious. Especially the French Onion soup. Everyone at the table was very happy with their decisions, although we think the Duck was dish of the night. Great service, friendly atmosphere, great food. Not much more you could ask for."

  • "We went before the theatre and had the set menu 2 course for £19.50 with presecco. Excellent value for money, suburb food and the service was very attentive, as we stated we didn't have long to eat."

  • "Held a small birthday bash for my wife, great atmos, delightful service and the piano bar downstairs is killer."

  • "Ate here with friends a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it, so booked it for last Saturday with another friend. The scallop and crab lasagna was still great but my friend and I had the vegetarian ravioli and it was not good. I never send anything back but we sent back our mains as the pasta was not cooked. I know what al dente is and it was simply not cooked. When it came back out it was still not that well cooked but at that point we could not be bothered to send it back again. The pudding and coffee were lovely as was the starter but the main was a disappointment. We eat regularly in Clapham with friends and i have to say based on this i would definitely hesitate to go there again. Shame as it used to be good."

  • "This is my second visit to Entree and again the food was very good and the service impeccable"
    dined on 31/05/2014
  • "Great food, friendly and attentive service and very gluten friendly! When one dish wasn't available gluten free, many other alternatives were offered "
    dined on 28/05/2014
  • "Starters (crab and scallop lasagne, and onion, mushroom and gruyere soup) were 1 Michelin star quality. The mains were generally very good but not as special as the starters"
    dined on 22/05/2014
  • "Great food and great service. The £19.50 deal on opentable is exceptional value. Definitely recommend!"
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "We had a great night at Entree. The food was lovely and the set menu was good value. We especially liked the Arancini, Bavette Steak and the Chicken dishes. The fish cakes were a little disappointing (more potato than fish) but otherwise everything was fab. Our waiter was super friendly and helpful (even though it was only his 3rd shift). The singer added ambience without being intrusive. I look forward to returning again soon. "
    dined on 10/05/2014
  • "Great food and lovely service. Food was well presented and tasted great. Will be back. "
    dined on 02/05/2014
  • "Late booking for Good Friday, so was unusually quiet. However food was still lovely and beautifully presented."
    dined on 18/04/2014
  • "The first time I went to Entree, I was impressed that it was something a bit different in Clapham - interesting food combinations, great cocktails and a fantastic pianist. This time, although it was a busy Saturday night, a below average guitarist/singer playing weak covers, and food not all that different from what you'd get anywhere in Clapham for half the price. Entree has a lovely atmosphere and the service is excellent, but it just shows how much under par food and poor music turn a restaurant from a place where you notice the atmosphere, great cocktails and music to a place where you only notice that the bill is a lot higher than you'd expect for what you're getting. May go back, but will check the menu and who is playing before I do."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Entree is a great neighbourhood restaurant, with very good food, a lovely atmosphere and live piano on weekend evenings. I'd highly recommend this restaurant. Their toptable deal is excellent value."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "Food is tasty and delicious, the staff are incredibly polite and friendly. The only thing to note if you're vegetarian (like me) is that if you go for the toptable set menu option, there are no veggie options for mains, but they were happy to substitute the (only) veggie dish (ravioli) from the a la carte menu which was tasty. Overall a great dining experience, would definitely go back."
    dined on 01/04/2014
  • "What a shame a very good local place has now gone down hill . I have eaten here a great deal in the past and always enjoyed the food and service,Entree has been going more than 3 years and the whole place is now looking very tired from the food decor you name it all is very very sad.The menus was the same old food the muse booch not up to the old standard and not even a full glass ,the only thing that could be classes as enjoyable was the bread. I won't be returning unless the whole place pulls it's socks up."
    dined on 25/03/2014
  • "did a toptable deal here on a Friday night. The food was great quality but the choice was limited on the toptable menu option. service also perfect throughout. "
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "We went to Entree for dinner on a Saturday night and all really enjoyed the food (particularly the crab and scallop lasagna starter), the wine and the cocktails (particularly the dessert cocktails!) The service was fantastic and the ambience was great with live music audible from the bar below but not so loud that conversation was difficult. Would definitely recommend."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "I took a couple friends here to catch - up and have a discussion about a future event. The noise level at Entree was that of a wine bar or a busy market. Fish cakes were very bland - ordred sole for main and it was a recipe for blood pressure - so salty! Staff was pleasant and attentive - thankfully this was tt deal so inexpensive - but food and environment was less than impressive."
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "An amazing surprise 40th dinner for my best friend back for two nights from Hong Kong - all the I hoped for & more!"
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "The food was great and the cocktails were delicious but don't expect an atmosphere. We were lucky as a large party was booked downstairs which gave the impression the place was busy despite a virtually empty top floor. If the party hadn't been there it would have been a meal void of atmosphere and could have ruined it. However, if you want good food and good drink and there are a group of you, this could be perfect."
    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "Food really good, atmosphere decent, really like the bar downstairs, good value. Will keep going."
    dined on 25/02/2014
  • "I have been to this restaurant a few times in the last few years, and decided to go on Saturday night as I have had good experiences in the past. Unfortunately they had run out of steak on the set menu, and on the normal menu, which was pretty rubbish for a Saturday night with a butchers right next door! We ordered off the set menu as we had booked through toptable. The amuse bouche was lovely, as was my french onion soup. Unfortunately the chef seemed to have gone salt crazy and over salted my sole, the sauce and the chips we were sharing, rendering them inedible. The waiting staff, however were lovely."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "I had never come across entree but stumbled upon it looking for some inspiration for somewhere to go away from the usual Northcote Road selection. The front of house greeting was warm and sincere. Throughout the whole evening nothing was too much trouble but neither were they hovering by your table waiting to pounce on empty plates and wine glasses. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. I've already recommended it to other friends who live in the area and will definitely be going back whether for a catch up with friends, birthday or romantic meal."
    dined on 19/02/2014
  • "I chose Entree to take my girlfriend for a Valentines dinner and it proved perfect! The ambiance was great with just the right lighting and blues/ jazz music in the background. The food and service was excellent. We ordered olives to start and to our surprise were also given amuse-bouche "compliments of the chef" - bread with a lovely rich creamy soup. We both ordered steak which was very tasty - the chips were amazing, very crispy! When we finished we were given a 241 cocktail voucher so we went to the bar downstairs to listen to the live music in the form of an acoustic guitarist. All in a great evening and we would definitely visit again. It's my 30th coming up and I'm considering having it here based on our evening. Recommended!"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "Was fine - service attentive but not overbearing, quality okay and quantity sufficient. Better than most in this area."
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "Second time of visiting this restaurant and in short, we'll be back. The food was lovely but it was backed by some of the best service I have received (friendly, knowledgeable but relatively low key. Appropriate key whatever the correct term for that is)"
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "Another great performance from Entree. Food always well presented and executed, interesting menu with plenty of choice (even on set menu). Service friendly and sweet - even keeping the kitchen open to rush through a dinner for a very late arrival to our party. Would definitely return."
    dined on 06/02/2014
  • "Excellent service, delicious food, great ambience; intimate and warm."
    dined on 06/02/2014
  • "Chance to eat well though out food in a local restaurant atmosphere. Service is friendly but slightly haphazard but no means a criticism, quite charming really. If you live south of the river and fancy a mid week meal in civilised surroundings its a good choice, the food is probably a feather overpriced given the location though. Would recommend it to friends living locally as one to try out."
    dined on 05/02/2014
  • "Had a fabulous dinner with friends at this lovely little restaurant. The piano player wasnt playing on a Thursday evening but have been here before and he really makes a difference would be lovely to have him there on more evenings/a little earlier to bring back that ambience."
    dined on 23/01/2014
  • "Always consistently excellent. Menu changes frequently, small and concise menu with interesting selection. Friendly and attentive staff - a neighborhood gem!"
    dined on 21/01/2014
  • "inedible cut of beef; tough and not cooked and veg the same."
    dined on 19/01/2014
  • "I live about a hundred yards from the restaurant, but had never been there. I had peered into it while waiting for the bus and never seen much activity within, but when I took two friends there on Friday for dinner, I was surprised to see that all the tables were taken. There was, thank God, no music except a very faint piano tinkling from downstairs. We were nicely welcomes and our coats and hats gathered, the service throughout was excellent, and the food good. The only real fault I could find was in the paucity of vegetables. The mashed sweet potato(?) that I had, and mashed potato of my friends, was a mere smear, and we could have done with more. General impression good. See star allocation."
    dined on 17/01/2014
  • "Lovely romantic dinner in Clapham. My husband and I went for dinner at Entree and we were instantly taken by the romantic ambience, the gorgeous fish and excellent service. We will come back again, no question about it, to test the rest of the menu."
