Daphne’s at one time was a favourite until I moved away from the area
So returning after a 5 year break I found that nothing much, but the prices, had changed
The front part of the restaurant where we dined is still intimate and relaxed
The service is good, the food without being amazing is good except for the zucchini Frito which are the best in London
This is a restaurant for special occasions and I hope they will be welcoming me back for many more years
Very underrated, but great atmosphere and delicious food. One of my faves.
The meet and great at reception was very welcoming, table service was fantastic, food was amazing, all round 10 out of 10 from us.
This was my second time at Daphne's, the other being over 10 years ago. This time was just as good as the first, food is incredible, wine choice exceptional and staff could not have done more.
We went in early before a show, so sat down at 5:30 and left at about 7:15. It was obviously quiet but the attention to detail was still spot on.
It's not the cheapest place on earth, but the small touches are worth it, for example, we ordered a starter to share, which is normally 3 scallops, and as they knew we were sharing, they gave us 4 instead - which was nice!
Well worth a visit, but don't go if you're on a budget
Always a fantastic experience. Well looked after, good atmosphere and good food.
A bit of a shambles on the Open Table menu. Had to ask for it despite booking with this option. Having chosen from the Open Table set menu they provided the waiter returned to say that given is the wrong menu and so we had to choose again from a lunch set menu...
As always top and very nice food, the cod is amazing
A disappointing experience in every way. We got seated in a lovely corner table, only to be told a few minutes later that we'd been seated at the wrong table and someone with a similar last name to ours was to be seated there. We were then moved to a small table near the kitchen door, not ideal with a busy kitchen.
The service started out okay but waned as the night progressed with the last person we interacted with that cleared the table not giving so much as fleeting eye contact, let alone a spoken word. He had an air of indignance which made me feel uncomfortable and questioning all of the positive reviews I'd read before making the booking.
To add insult to an already ailing injury, both of our meals arrived lukewarm. My side of artichokes and tomato was well seasoned and the flavours delicately balanced, however the Dover sole was under seasoned and as aforementioned, borderline cold.
Utterly underwhelming and will not be returning.
The service, the food, and the atmosphere were all outstanding. Can't wait to visit again.
Excellent service from the lovely team on the door/cloaks all the way through to the end of the meal; unfailing courtesy and attention ...and delicious food & wines
Everything is great but it is always vert hot inside- at least the front area. So dress up light.rest is all great
always a fantastic experience. look forward to many more meals in 2018 !
Daphne’s is the best Italian restaurant in London bar none - a pedigree since 1964 and deservedly so - molto bene!
Lovely food and service
