My husband and I came to 28-50 when we first got married and it's stuck with us as one of our favorite restaurants that we would reminisce about.

Last night I took my husband here for his 31st birthday.

For 2 courses and 2 glasses of wine we paid £135. We drove to hours to get to the restaurant and I had saved up money over a course of months for the evening.
Sadly it was not a meal to match the occasion.
We had just finished our starters when a waiter asked us if we wanted tea or coffee before he bought us the bill.

My husbands main was hard for him to stomach. He had the Hake, which was cooked well...but the sauce it sat on tasted as he described like 'toilet cleaner'.
My steak came well done when I had asked for medium rare.

We just didn't feel like we got the service or experience we have had years before and certainly not the experience we would hope to have on the night of a loved ones birthday.

We felt uncomfortable making a scene or a fuss and so we skipped dessert and set off back home.
I felt embarrassed that my husband hadn't got the birthday meal he probably wanted. After all this was my gift to him this year.

It is a very small restaurant with LOTS of customers. We were struggling to hear each other. Our table for 6 was in fact two tables for two stuck together and it was so close to the window, that I have banged my head twice on their frame. It is really nothing special. I probably wouldn't have minded, if I just have popped in, but I relied on the reviews here and made a reservation a week in advance. Really isn't worth it. The so called "great choice of wines" is in fact around 10 cheap ones and around 5 more expensive ones. They charge you 12.5% service charge and when you leave, there is not anyone even to look your way.
Food was ok, we found it was very bland. My husband's lamb only had 3 tiny slices of meat. It was also barely warm.
The overall experience- it is not for a special occasion. Maybe for a quick drink with friends and a chat.
And they did not have any baby changing facilities.

The ambiance in this place was great! Very cozy but young and modern. The service was also wonderful! Our server was so warm and friendly with the service being quick and thorough. I also really appreciated the wine selection and pricing. I would go back for that alone. The only thing I found disappointing was the food. It was a great selection and beautifully presented. It was just disappointing in taste. The chicken was bland, the peppercorn sauce was lemony and steak was overly chewy. However, the cheeseburger and fries were wonderful!

Nice place nice ambiance good food. My fellow diners said although the Lamb was tasty the portion size of lamb and potato was far too small, they felt hungry still after the meal.
Charcuterie and cheese board was nice but only 4 crackers and a few cornichons. But very disappointed that our high table was not available. We were sat on a regular but smaller table that was fine but too small when the food arrived. we were told that the high table was reserved for a group of ten, then we sat all evening watching it empty. Not impressed with a blatant lie.

Dear David, Thank you for your comments on the good atmosphere and food. I'm really sorry you were not accommodated at the high-table as requested, this was reserved for a large group booking who did dine at the restaurant. They do appear to have been accommodated at the high-tables so I'm not sure where the confusion has occurred here. I'm sorry the evening wasn't as you would have hoped but we do hope you try us again. Kind regards, Ginny

In terms of the slow service, every restaurant in London is struggling with a lack of staff and keeping up with the level of service in restaurants is proving very difficult in the run up to Christmas.

Ambience was nice but food is not value for money. Portions were soooo small. Bread (cheeseburger) was dry and stale and prawns were not served hot. Point of personal preference - artichokes do not pair well with lamb so I wouldn’t order that dish again.

Thought that dessert would save the day but the blackberry tart was tiny. Really tiny.

On the bright side, service was fantastic and the fries were perfect. Autumn mess was interesting as well.

We have always believed that the overall experience at our restaurant is value for money, however, due to the increase in cost price of food in the country, every restaurant in London is under enormous pressure and the cost of dining-out is increasing accordingly.

Very slow and disinterested service. Main course was served without two elements. When I pointed this out I was told the kitchen had run out. No prior notice was given when ordered or when served. Was given 50% off main course, but left me wondering if I had not said anything they would have hoped I didn’t notice and charged full price. Disappointing as food was good. Service very poor.

Not a good experience all round. We booked as this boasted to be a great wine venue - we were never served by a sommelier or anyone who has any real knowledge of wine

Food was nice but over priced. For the main we ordered seafood platter for minimum 3 people which did not have much on there - pretty sure order was wrong as only had 2 oysters on there. We weren’t even given plates with the platter and when I asked waitress If we could have plates I was given a funny look. Not sure what the expectation is here - majority of the platter was shellfish / mussels etc

After the stingy main we thought we’d make up for it with a desert but we weren’t offered one. We we’re actually left a good 30/40 mins from finishing without anyone coming over to see if we wanted more drinks or anything else - we just asked for the bill and again got another funny look.

Couldn’t wait to get out. You should just leave this stuff to Noble Rot - real wine restaurant with great service

Very poor overall experience, especially for a £200+ cost.

The ambience is lovely, particularly outside on a warm evening, and the staff were very friendly. We particularly enjoyed the friendliness and cheerfulness of the young sommelier, who doubled as our waitress and did her very best to make up for the shortcomings of the menu/food.

The starting cocktail was flavourless. We ordered the seafood platter thinking it would be enough for a light meal. It isn’t. It is not deserving of the name, or its position on the menu. It’s a starter at best. And needs to more than a pile of mussels and clams adorned with a couple of small grilled prawns (certainly not tiger) and a couple of bland oysters. It missing its star performer, the crab. Which we were later informed was not available and would not have been a crab anyway, but a small crab salad. This should not have the price tag it has and in any event shouldn’t have been offered or charged in full, if it was going to be incomplete.

We were still hungry, so we ordered 2 rib-eye steaks - that’s how satisfying the seafood was (half of the pile of mussels and clams left in the dish). The steaks are advertised at 280g, but couldn’t have been more than 150. We ordered medium rare and they came well done. Probably should have complained, but this is evidence of a poorly managed kitchen, and who likes to complain when trying to enjoy the evening.

Honestly there are better options in this city, even in Marylebone, and with a price more in line with the food quality.

I have to note though that the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, which coupled with the ambience, provided for an overall lovely evening. Will choose another kitchen next time however.

Thank you for your review. We are grateful for your praise of our staff and that is something we can be proud of. You may be aware of the rapidly increasing costs in our industry, and, sadly that means pressure to raise prices, not the other way round but we will urgently investigate your comments, making sure our portions are correct and our ratios are industry standard. The chef will be stung by your suggestion of a poorly managed kitchen, but we will make changes together if they are needed.
