Fabulous pre-theatre dinner - loved the anbience, the service and the food. Will return for sure - the salmon was delicious and in an area with much overpriced and hyped places, 45 Jermyn street always stands out.

Very disappointing breakfast. The croissant was burnt at the edges and very meagre in size. The open omelette with mushrooms and gruyere was the most unappetising thing we have seen in a long time. It would have been better suited to a greasy spoon in some backwater. It was presented in the plate like a dirty brown cowpat. The poached eggs on toast were similarly poorly presented. It was as though cooked by an accountant. There was just one piece of toast with no butter and two lonely poached eggs (which saved the dish by being nice and runny). We have eaten and shopped at Fortnums for many years and see a steady decline. Perhaps costs are being cut or perhaps everyone is just tired. Whatever the reason we won’t be dining there again.

We had a nice lunch at 45 Jermyn Street on Sunday the 30th of June. We ordered two glasses of
Viogner and were given CONDRIEU "PETITE CÔTE¨. Lovely wine and great pairing with our food,
Chicken Waldorf Salad. However, when the bill came we discovered that the wine was £25 per glass.
Being a wine collector myself, I recently bought a case of this wine (although the 2017 vintage) and paid
£ 24/bottle......I have to say that I think your mark-up is a bit much and would recommend you to adjust
your prices to a realistic level.
Apart from that, we had a pleasant experience at your restaurant and would visit again. Yet then we would have the Chablis Domaine du Colombier, Burgundy 2017, which at £ 11/glass is much more reasonable. Thank you and best regards.

Excellent quality food, well presented. Liked the international touches such as poke and tacos, which worked well. There were six of us and there were enough interesting choices on the menu that we all had different dishes. Service attentive but not overly so. Very good wine list. Nice environment and the little touches of humour were appreciated.

The food was very good and the Saturday menu was was very reasonable for the location, food and service. But they need to have something a tad cheaper than £40 for a carafe of wine. We went for the bottle which was £52 which meant we paid the same for the wine as we did for the meal which in my view is disproportionate.

We booked a table for noon on a Sunday expecting to be able to get brunch but it had already stopped. This makes no sense to me as surely if brunch stops before noon it is just breakfast.

As a Code member, I got 50% off food but otherwise value would be poor

Not recommending 45 Jermyn Street doesn't mean it's terrible. It's not. Rather it falls between wanting to be upmarket and therefore able to command a premium with a narrow, niche menu and popular, where it has more competitors who offer wider ranges and better value. Caught in the middle is not a good place to be.

Went for a birthday celebration dinner for my wife with our two daughters prior to the theatre. Had a fantastic meal from the pre theatre menu with impeccable service. In addition waitress must have overheard it was a birthday and at the end of the meal brought out a plate saying happy Birthday in chocolate and 4 delicious chocolates. Lovely touch.Will definitely return.

We have eaten at this establishment many times over the past three years. This is the worst by far in any those experiences because the service was so poor. We had to wait quite long before getting even water and drinks started. Several times during the meal we had to get up from the table to ask for things from the bar because there was a complete lack of service for quite long periods. Further, there was very little communication about why things took so long, even though we saw other tables getting service on a quicker and more regular basis. The food and ambience were wonderful, but the lack of service really took away from the overall experience, especially for meal for 4 that cost £400. Will rethink before booking this establishment again even though it has been one of my favorites in London for quite a while.

This is our go too restaurant in London for breakfast, however the service levels have gone down. The main greeter is unfriendly and the restaurant wasn’t busy, but they forgot our orange juice. The Buck Rarebit is nowhere near as good as it used to be, and it was served lukewarm as though it had been hanging around. Such a shame as the restaurant and menu are both great.

The menu options were good. My friends gazpacho was excellent and they took on board her dairy free diet. The rabbit tagliatelle ragout had bones in it. My lamb dish was superb but the avocado was just the wrong side of ripe. Ordered a vin santo. A red Chianti arrived. Hmm. Chocolates arrived as an apology and were delicious So we disputed the service charge. Cannot fault the apologies by the management and the issue was resolved very satisfactorily. Customer service brilliant. So dispite the issues I would still recommend this restaurant
