    We came here because we had heard good things about it. The restaurant was very pretty and was like eating in an art gallery. The food was good. The staff seemed bothered and although they were not rude directly they were the least friendly staff we have encountered in London. I wouldn’t return and would go back to The Wolseley instead.

    Service, venue and ambiance excellent. Unfortunatley the main meals were over salted. We sent one of the main meals back as it was inedible the other was not noticeably over salted until towards the end of eating the same resulting in one of the party not feeling great after.

    I used to like this place but I went recently and it’s really gone downhill. Staff were very pushy with upselling (kept interrupting our conversation) and everything was quite overpriced. There are much better options in the area.

    Beautiful dinner for our vacation to London. The service was incredible. We enjoyed the Chateaubriand and finished with baked Alaska. A special thanks to Sebastian for sharing his recommendations on Scotch whiskies. The sommelier recommended an excellent wine. Our primary waiter, Alex, was great. The other attending staff were also fantastic. Old school service, great food and a lovely atmosphere. Thanks so much.

    Exemplary service, never disappointed. Bottles are placed on the table with the label facing you, stored on a silver plate for the water bottle. Always someone on hand to top you up. The staff work as a team. Fast kitchen, top quality food. When it comes to a place that is almost perfect and such high standards it’s hard to find an area of improvement, so the most finicky I can be - a small serving spoon for my ketchup would have been perfect. Ketchup, mustard and mayo individual pots arrive on a nice tri-stand, small silver spoons would complete the picture. Having the Mac and cheese main with braised beef my cutlery was substituted rightly for a fork and spoon. Given how creamy and cheesy the sauce is the spoon is critical for enjoying all the gooeyness. Food was very tasty. Staff friendly, helpful, accommodating and professional.

    Berners Tavern was recommended to me whilst visiting London. The room is absolutely spectacular - like dining in an art gallery. The service was a bit full on, and I felt a little rushed through our meal. The Chateaubriand for two was divine. The bomb alaska type dessert, which was recommended to us by the waitstaff, was not all that spectacular and the bottle of wine served was not as cold as I like so small things but overall a lovely, expensive restaurant to visit, especially for a special event.

    We have eaten at the Berners Tavern many times, over many years, and have always loved it. Last night however was not their best. Although the restaurant was only 25% full, immediately upon being seated with our guests we were ambushed by a barrage of questions by various staff who showed little subtlety in their approach. The food is always good, but for the first time ever, our regular order of the slow roast lamb shoulder was overcooked and dry in the middle. All of this would have been OK were it not for a waiter coming to us as we were finishing dessert, asking us to leave the table immediately for a newly received booking to be seated. I understand London restaurants need to manage their sittings, but this is normally communicated in advance or upon being seated. To do it in front of our guests with no pre-warning, for a booking just received and having barely finished dessert was embarrassing. We will be back, but in all our years this was the first time we've left feeling dissatisfied. I sincerely hope this was a one off.

    Never fails to impress with the stunningly high vaulted ceiling main room, to the near perfect symphony of coordination between the staff to the delivery of exquisite tastes. Only surpassed by the remarkably well appointed wine list with depth and verve throughout. Worth a diversion of your time.

    The restaurant is interesting and beautifully decorated. The service was cordial and efficient, and the food was more delicious than I could ever have imagined. It’s more value than you get in most restaurants, for sure. But it is expensive, so if you keep that in mind, you will truly enjoy it when you go. Highly recommended!

    Exceptional experience in almost every regard. Food was incredible - and the tableside service of the sole is foodie theatre heaven! The only downside on the whole evening was that we were seated at a large table with just four of us and given the noise level in the restaurant, it was almost impossible to hear each other without shouting. Definitely not the spot for an intimate date night but if you're going with a group then highly recommended.
