    Very welcoming excellent guest experience and I was provided with a great table. With hindsight, I should have gone for the scallops, which looked amazing! The crab was plated very well indeed, but lacked flavour dimension and came with tiny bits of shell. I would have served it warm, with a bit of lemon garlic butter sauce. Fresh dill would have set it off with light seasoning of salt and pepper. I would have also used curled leaf Parsley for the edge garnish providing some additional aromatics and freshness. Ribeye was very good and cooked exactly to order. Next time tho, I go [Medium To Well] just for a lighter pink in the middle and greater rendering/camerlization of the fatty tissue, which traditional medium prep didn't really allow for. The meat was very fresh and very tender. Gigantic tick. Demi Glaze was Flawless as was the broccoli sautéed in garlic and butter (Perfectly Al Dente without being under) which was my star of the plate along with the demi glaze. Double gigantic tick. Service was attentive, so I was well looked after. Be advised that there is a 15% service charge that is included in your bill. So for the menu I believe mains and desert are priced very well for Central London and represent good value. Starters, I would say appear to be a tad on the somewhat expensive side, given that you can actually get a non steak main course in other restaurants for close to the same amount of money. Its not a place for the light of wallet (and neither should it be so). Overall its a great experience in an excellent restaurant with wonderful ambience. I highly recommend because of the excellent fresh produce, extremely tasty food, good service and outstanding front of house. It's important to be made to feel welcome and they do this well. I look forward to returning in the not too distant future. StrangePerfectionRating = Very Good indeed. Thanks team. See you in a fortnight.

    Lovely restaurant, with really great food and ambiance. Conveniently located in the centre, but tucked away an elegant corner of St. James'. Main courses were outstanding, the desserts were fine.

    The marinara sauce was more ketchup than marinara. My husband's pasta was not fully cooked- not al dente as they kept insisting but raw. Then it took 20 minutes for a new entree that they promised would be 8. On a good note, the gluten free pasta was the best I've ever had. We do NOT recommend!

    It’s a shame but post Covid this restaurant seems to have lost its way. The menu seems reduced and the overall quality, taste and service are not what they were. It’s now expensive and bland.

    We went to this restaurant with friends just before xmas. it was funny to see that the majority of patrons were men ;-) The ambiance is lively and therefore the noise level can be quite high. We sat near a window but it was quite difficult to speak with our friends sometimes. The food was really good. Their crayfish pasta are amazing! The service is friendly and efficient. Will try at lunchtime maybe next time ... Hoping for a more calmer setting.

    Was not very impressed with the food. They had a problem in the kitchen and had taken all the things off the menu I had been wanting to order before I got to the restaurant. The nice staff actually went out of their way to get the chefs to make me a lobster linguine, so I did appreciate that however, it really wasn’t worth the hassle and could cook better my self at home. (That’s saying something). Overall nice staff and restaurant but way over priced food for the quality received.
