    The two of us had the pre-theatre menu, consisting of three courses. Very nicely plated food in all cases. Definitely no need for any sides. Good very tasty, wine a bit on the expensive side. Service excellent.

    I went to The Northall with a friend for the pre theatre menu. The place is really amazing and the staff very professional. We had 3 courses and a glass of champagne. The food was excellent and the champagne as well. If you plan to eat before the theatre, give you plenty of time to enjoy the food and the place (1 hour is not enough!)

    This my wife and I's first time at the Northall but it won't be the last. The food was outstanding. My wife though the dover sole was the best fish she'd ever had. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Sommelier was very informative. The setting is beautiful but not overly stuffy. Felt comfortable in dress jeans and shirt but others had three piece suits on. Also very easy to get to, just a couple steps from Embankment tube station. One of the best dining experiences we have had.

    Dined on 27/8/2014
    Loved the restaurants air of relaxed opulence. Service was faultless, friendly, attentive, always there when they should be but never obtrusive. The menu consisted mainly of contemporary classics with a great selection of seasonal dishes. The food didn't disappoint, it was flavoursome, well cooked, the quality of ingredients evident, simple and elegantly presented. My grouse was perfectly done, just the right side of rare and well accompanied by a pearl barley risotto and fresh kale. We loved the English wine we selected with help of the sommelier, who was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Thoroughly recommend.

    Great for pre-theatre (menu for £30 including glass of champagne is good value and quality). Food was very good, except for the fish with curried muscles which was a bit dry and oily, though. Very classy and elegant surroundings. Initially a bit empty but by 7pm it had a good vibe without being loud.

    Highly professional yet very friendly and welcoming staff made our visit a pleasant and relaxing experience. Portions a little on the small side so we were glad we order three side dishes between four of us. Overall an easy place to talk and unwind with good food and outstanding service - well worth the trip up from the Cotswolds

    Whilst the service I thought was 'OK', and the atmoshpere/ambience was low key (fairly quiet actually for a saturday night) the food, location and setting is first rate. Bit under-estimated I think, I'd never even heard of this restaurant however I think it's a good place for a special occassion or a nice meal out. Impressed with Food and the decor/setting.

    Booked the pre-theatre menu that was actually very flexible with its timings. Three courses and a glass of champagne for £30 is excellent value, particularly with food this good. The room is 'understated opulence' (!). This is a place where you can hear yourself think - great for intimate conversation. The service was mostly attentive but waned slightly towards the end... Highly recommended.

    The exquisite salon at The Northall - all soaring ceilings and neo-classical columns - makes for a wonderful setting. One to which the food is, happily, more than a match. A short but well formed pre-theatre menu finds room for the intriguing by way of a 'Pick Your Own Garden' opener, essentially a de-constructed goats cheese, red pepper and olive terrine served in a very generous portion. The theme of individualising and highlighting the elements of a dish continues through an excellent parsed steak and oyster pie and to a desert of cheesecake ice cream served with expected accompaniments. Not that this was an overly fussy affair: flavour, just-so cooking and unobtrusively attentive service are the order of the day here. Excellent.

    I came here with a friend and had the three course theatre menu. The food was tasty and original. The service was friendly and knowledgable. The only slight problem was they mixed my friend's up but we were pleased with the way it was dealt with. Wine was really good but expensive. I'd definitely come back here though.

    We went back to the Northall for a celebration meal because the first time we went we were bowled over. There is always a worry that the 2nd time round would not be as good. WELL NOT HERE - it was better!. The service and the choice of food was excellent and the wine waiter knowledge was first class and very approachable. The crab and beef starters were superb. The posh fish and chips with mushy pea's were the best my husband has had and the fish en papiot was superb. My husband went for the choc a holics delight for a 2nd time - he could not resist it and I has the cheesecake. Can't wait to go back

    We chose the Corinthia for pre-theatre dining because it was opposite the Playhouse where we were seeing a show. Unfortunately due to a police incident we were very late and it is to the restaurant's credit that we got through the three course set menu in 45 minutes. The food is very good and deserved more time really. It is modern european but with a twist in that its deconstructed in a Blumenthal sort of way. For example the steak and ale pie was presented in its component parts, steak, gravy and pastry, separately. It worked and the food is well done. Worth a visit, but be warned that parking in that area is difficult at any time.

    We had the pre theatre 3 course dinners with a glass of champagne. First- the garden bland with a very nasty, gritty dried olive topping. The main beef and oyster pie was deconstructed with very dry chunks of beef, a tiny bit of flaky dried out pastry. The oyster mushroom was nice. The cauliflower was not cooked enough, very hard, swimming in a thin cream and gruyere sauce all very disappointing. Strawberry pavlava was delicious. Whilst I don’t like to be rushed the service was very slow indeed, the staff were friendly and gave us a free coffee to make up for the fact that we didn’t eat most of our food. This restaurant needs quite a bit of tweaking to be really good. Food needs to do more than look pretty it must taste good as well.

    The setting and ambience were lovely, and for carnivores such as myself, the food was rather good. My fiance however ordered the 'tart' which actually turned out to be a quiche which was loaded with egg. They really shouldn't call something a tart if it's really a quiche. The staff however were good about it and offered to replace the dish, although the options were pretty limited to a basic salad or the risotto.

    Very good value for money, the food is beautifully done. Usually would expect a 3-course set menu to have at least one average course, but all the dishes were very well made and presented. I had the mackerel for starter, the rabbit for main and carrot and apple cake for dessert, all of them are delicious. Will definitely come back!
