    I've been to the restaurant a few times and most of the time, i have loved the food. However, on this occasstion i found the meet a little too hard and not a lot of taste. The starter with the volute was just foam and again no taste. I opted for the set menu.

    My wife, son and I celebrated the Freedom of the City of London at the Royal exchange and the Sauterelle. It is a great environment overall: great cocktail bar, good top end shopping and great food and service. We had such a great lunch that I recommended it to a friend the next day. They planned a lunch the next weekend but the Royal Exchange was shut (it was Lord Mayor's Show weekend) - so check that it is open before you go!

    Second visit here. Had the Monday evening £35 3 course unlimited bubbles. Good value and the quality of the food is superb. The beef carpaccio starter is fabulous. The mains followed very well. The Lamb was superb as was the cod. The puds were ok, felt a bit of an after thought but didn't create an issue. Sometimes a little slow at topping up people's bubbles but it was a school night I suppose..! Would definately go back. The restaurant manager is superb and his staff were a delight. Formal service but not stuffy. Lovely evening. Going back for lunch next month

    Booked with the 3 course set menu + unlimited bubbles for £35 deal - menu nicer than that listed on the website, with a decent range (for a set deal). Beef carpaccio starter with cheese fondue was a real highlight, mains and desserts also excellent and well executed. Service was good, if a little formal. Would return.

    if you are a pair, you may want to ask for a table overlooking the court of the Royal Exchange at night, in particular, was an added bonus to a wonderful dining experience. It was hard for me personally, to choose from such exceptionally good options all of which were highly appealing. The final choices did not disappoint, all delicious and beautifully presented. For the quality and the imagination, this table d'hotef was outstanding and amazing value. The price only went up for us as we added wine to the detailed offer but cannot fault anything as it was certainly worth it, altogether a big success, my guest was also blown away. Think I will be back very soon as the menu was so tempting.

    The service, the food and the atmosphere were superb. Staff were so very professional but friendly at the same time. Each plate produced exclamations of delight - the puddings were little plates of art. The building the restaurant is set in is very impressive and the clever glass walls allow the diner to admire the architecture. Would definitely recommend

    Sauterelle is certainly a high quality restaurant tucked away in Royal Exchange, we took the Monday night offer of 3 courses and unlimited Prosecco, which I'm glad we had the food and bubbles lived up to expectation, and the service was simply excellent.

    This place is amazing value! We chose the 3 course set menu for £25 (which includes a glass of wine) and each course was delicious. The food was truly excellent (and I eat at a lot of London's top restaurants), the setting at the Royal Exchange building is beautiful and I would definitely recommend a visit. It was quite quiet for a Friday night; I can only guess that not many people know about this restaurant as it is tucked away. Truly a hidden gem.

    Dined on 21/8/2014
    We came to Sauterelle because of an offer in the Evening Standard for 2 courses and a drink for £20. However, what originally seemed to be a good value lunch celebration turned out to be less than we expected. The food was delicious, but the portions were extremely tiny and no sides were available with the set menu. We were only offered one slice of bread, followed by a tiny main course (we ordered trout and chicken) and an even smaller dessert (we had the hazelnut parfait). At the end, we were given petit fours (financiers and truffles) with our bill, which we gobbled up gratefully. The service was very slow, but friendly. Come here if you want to splash out on the a la carte.

    I've eaten at the restuarant on a few occassions and I have to say that the food was again spot on. The flavours were lovely. Cost is on par with most City restaurants but the set menu was reasonable value. Today, it was very busy and as a result service was slow. Notwithstanding that, I'd recommend a visit.

    Set within and looking over the Royal Exchange hall offers a great location in impressive surroundings. The bar offers a good selection of pre-dinner drinks and cocktails and they have a broad and varied wine list. The food is good and professionally presented, served by helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommended for business lunches and dinners.

    We ate here with friends on Friday evening. The restaurant was busy but not packed. It would have been nice to have had a table by the window, but the ambience was pleasant, and the staff were lovely. The food was excellent, with plenty of choice on the Opentable deal. The amuse bouches and petit fours are a nice touch too. I would recommend this restaurant.

    Beautifully prepared and presented food, served by friendly and professional staff in a mezzanine restaurant overlooking the best of 19th century architecture in the centre of the City of London. What more could anyone want? Except the Evening Standard promotion giving 2 courses and a glass of wine for £20! Will be back for special occasions - first class.

    We had a great evening at Sauterelle, with their fantastic 'three courses and unlimited fizz' offer. This proved great value, but the food and service remained top-notch. The waiting staff were all very friendly yet professional. I opted for the Corninsh cod which was cooked to perfection and my friends who had the chicken found it moist and delciious and the parmesan gnocchi were fantastic! The dessert was also excellent. We shall certianly be returning.

    Had an enjoyable meal last Friday for our Wedding Anniversary. Great surroundings within the Royal Exchange building and had seats looking out onto the old trading floor, making a Started with celebratory glass of champagne and then a fine bottle of bordeaux with the meal. My wife went for the vegeterian set menu, while i took the salmon starter with the Aylesbury duck for main. The duck was prepared beautifully, and was tender and flavoursome. Service was attentive, discrete and unobtrusive and they also made a surprise for us with the dessert as we'd mentioned it was our anniversary. Overrall we thoroughly enjoyed our special evening and would definitely recommend.
