    I booked the restaurant to celebrate a birthday with friends. We all had a wonderful time. The service was excellent, food delicious (with a terrific choice) and a great ambience. We spent hours here - a perfect Sunday afternoon. The Sunday Brunch with champagne offer is very good value for money.

    Stunning building and beautiful dining room, with charming Italian waitress - service attentive but not in your face. The 3 course opentable deal with glass of champagne at £30 was great value - although glass of champagne half a glass, not full. We had one glass of wine each and that nearly doubled our bill to £112.50 for two including 12.5% service, not quite sure how that worked out (as each glass around £14) - I'd worked out total should be £102 - but my companion had bill. Good choices on theatre menu and food beautifully cooked and served. If only drinks not quite so extortionate would be perfect.

    Excellent food, service and ambience, but laughingly ridiculous prices for any extras. Puts a whole shadow on all the positives when a glass of wine or a coffee costs as much as a main meal in most other restaurants. The sommelier was needlessly rude.

    Having just proposed to my now fiance on our 5 year anniversary, dining at the Northall was the perfect experience to complete a perfect day. The food was sublime, the staff were very helpful and prompt, perhaps the best service I have experienced and we really enjoyed the music played too. I have already recommended the Northall to friends and family.

    We dined at The Northall before a show and the staff were most accommodating, checking what time we needed to be away and taking us through even though we were early and they were not officially open yet. They offered gluten-free bread for the guest who needed it and were generally friendly and concerned. The food was all good, well prepared and interesting and the regular bread delicious. Good portion sizes, not mean or too much. The hotel decor is splendid adding to the experience. The £30 for three courses and a glass of champagne represented good value for this standard of restaurant.

    We went to try the pre theatre supper deal. Northall Bar is beautiful room. Plenty of space and very attentive staff. The pre theatre menu was good but the service was slow. We weren't going to the theatre but if we had been we would have missed the first act. Three course and glass of champagne for £30 was excellent value and the food was of a high standard. If you order anything else your bill will quickly double but we did think it was still good value.

    My friend and I went to Northall to celebrate by birthday before going to the theatre. It was 5.30 and empty on a Monday, but very soon 5 other couples arrived and the beautiful room benefitted from a few more people. It's a large space with high ceilings and nice background music, which compliments the excellent food and service. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable without being intrusive (just the way I like it), the food was well paced and all arrived hot and delicious. Reasonable size portions of intense flavours, so the 3 course meal left us more than satisfied. The pre-theatre menu includes a glass of champagne for £30, which for the quality I think is a good price. Recommended.

    Got in pretty early and was at the bar working till i met my friend for dinner. The bar staff were pretty attentive and ensured that I didn't feel alone. The food was amazing apart from the apple and cinnamon cake which I was looking forward to but was disappointed. Apart from that, can't fault and will definitely be going back.

    Dined at the Northall last Saturday, we opted for the 3-course pretheatre meal, which was £30 and included champagne. Food was lovely with the lamb perfectly cooked, and service was top class. Menu included a glass of champagne.If I could grumble, I would say that portions were a little on the small side and wine was very expensive. But we had a lovely evening overall.

    Nice three course offer at The Northall. Haven't been for a while, but the set menu was really good value. Gazpacho to start, which was delicious. A stuffed courgette with smoked tomato essence was lovely, although the lemon gnocchi was just weird. Dessert of strawberry mousse was light and pleasant. Wine good. All very pleasant, and excellent service, but the meal didn't set me alight.

    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.

    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.

    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.
