Great meal and definitely worth a Michelin star. The food was great and the cooking was executed to perfection. The tasting menu is superb. The service was also top notch - extremely professional and friendly at the same time. Highly recommended

Outstanding service; good food but portions are quite small and a bit overpriced. Although I guess, the price is also about the place which is very high standard. Perfect for a business meal.

Very attentive service. Restaurant itself was quiet and Michelin Star expected well arranged. Now, the lunch menu was fantastic, simply fantastic in both ways: quality of food and creative presentation as well as in term of price/value. I’ll definitely come back again.

I had one of the most wonderful dinner with my friends. The food was delicious and spectacular.
The service was perfect with a really friendly and knowlegable team of waiters and the sommelier did an amazing job with the wine pairing. We really enjoyed our time at that beautiful restaurant and I can just recommend everybody to try the Angler.
Thanks again :)

As a group of three friends we had a lovely evening - great food with discreet service. Good wine and cocktails list and the tables are spread out so you don't feel that you are sitting with the table next to you! Surrounded by windows so it was lovely and bright. We will definitely return.

Had a really good evening at the Angler, the tasting menu was superb and lets you experience 3 starters, 2 mains and 3 deserts from the a'la carte menu. The resturant is in a great location on the top floor of the hotel with views over the City of London financial centre. The staff were attentive and polite. Although mainly a seafood menu the Lamb was out of this world.

Enjoyed the Taste of Spring menu - lovely little small plates before the starter which were probably the highlight. Starter of lobster cocktail, main of sea bream and dessert of a white chocolate mousse. Food quality really very high but quite small portions - not left hungry but definitely felt a little underwhelmed. £45 for the meal including a glass of champagne not bad all things considered but when the competition is so high in the area, slightly disappointed....would certainly have given full marks if the portions had been more generous

service was pretty much immaculate.
cooking was very good, although the combination of crab with hot orange sauce jarred slightly.
and the terrace bar appeared to be mostly populated by noisy big groups who weren't dining in the restaurant anyway, so don't rely on that for a quiet pre-dinner drink.

I booked originally for a business lunch but had to change to evening dinner due to circumstance the restaurant was very accommodating.

The food as excellent although we only had the spring taster menu . Everything was fresh well presented and although at times difficult to understand presented by the staff impeccably.

My only minor gripe was the amount of attention we were given was a little overpowering but not unpleasant.

Although a little on the pricey side I will return to experience the excellent food tastes.

Menu was very limited ... half a dozen starters and the same for mains. Only one starter and one main was not fish. The food was excellent although it was the usual French Haut Cuisine ... a.k.a. Tiny portions. You do receive lots of little things from the chef ... pre-dessert nibbles... pre starters, post starters ... it was more of a degustation. Lots of little portions of food but equisitely done. I’d go back as it really is a pleasurable dining experience but don’t starve yourself beforehand. We had 2 starters, 2 mains (there are no sides), bottle of wine, glass of wine, glass of dessert wine, 1 dessert and 1 cheese board. £280. The wine was £75.

I had been so looking forward to this meal as it had been some time since my last visit and I had built it to my client up as somewhere quite special. Which for the food it undoubtedly is.

Sadly, we were not received with a warm and welcoming smile, more like a School mistresses dressing down for being a 10mins late and were told that our booking had been cancelled.

Luckily it’s the restaurant and terrace we’re half empty so that managed to find us a table on the terrace.

We were then rushed to order the food by a rather impatient waiter who again had the unsmiling, charmless demeanour of the receptionist.

This continued throughout the meal - no sooner had we closed our cutlery our plates whisked away and the next course delivered. Then the dessert menu. Rush, rush, rush - a reason given this time though ‘you are the last table in the restaurant and the pastry chef is waiting only for you’

The champagne unfortunately was served at a much slower pace and we sat with empty glasses on several occasions whilst they decided which waiter should be pouring it for us. Other terrace guests were simply helping themselves!


The food however was exquisite - and certainly did not deserved to be rushed!

And after a change of shift we did eventually get a waiter who seemed happy and was able to engage in a suitably friendly service - smiling and pouring drinks!

More formal restaurant with a lovely room, excellent service, Michelin-starred food. Most of what we had was excellent. The crab ravioli as an appetizer was fabulous. My husband loved the halibut but I found that the taste of the sole was drowned out by the heavy sauce. All in all, we enjoyed the dinner while we were on our London getaway.
