City of London's most booked Bonus Point tables

Booked through the Open Table app weeks ago, but on arrival reception staff did not appear to have my booking. Starters came out quickly, but mains did not arrive until prompted, to find the kitchen had not prepared our meal. When mains finally arrived, the dishes were not what we ordered. Waiter was fantastic with a couple of extra dishes, dessert and coffee on the house. Disappointing as have been before, and only an attentive waiter brought the evening back to satisfaction. More

Steak | Liverpool Street, City of London

We were celebrating my son's 18th birthday and so pleased we chose this venue. Food, service and ambience were excellent with a little surprise thrown in at the end when the hostess realised it was my son's birthday. Party of 6 and all of us had a great evening. We will definitely be back. More

Italian | Liverpool Street, City of London

Celebrated my birthday here and had a wonderful evening! We had our own area and the staff were very welcoming and quick to serve us. They forgot to make 2 drinks that were ordered and were very apologetic and then gave us them on the house. The food was delicious, the background music was great and we all had a really good night out! More

OpenTable Diner -

If you’re in need of a restaurant that offers great steak/ food overall nothing can be said against the M. The place is very sleek as well. Service isn’t bad but doesn’t match the price category. The servers try more or less to offer good service but seem to lack coordination, knowledge about their foods and attention to actual details. Long story short the impression that the coatcheck/host offer at the entrance is not upheld afterwards. I’ve been twice and know a thing or two about hospitality so maybe I’m just too critical. Enjoy the Steak!! More
