I asked for a quite table and we were given one, that was a plus point.
The food service everything was great, I hadn’t been there a while but the standard was the same as years ago.
I love the place.

Unlike on previous occasions, we were disappointed by the table assigned (in a corner and very warm), as well as a couple of the dishes: the shrimp burger was tasteless, and the sea bream was swimming in oil.

The evening was ruined because of an incredibly noisy table next to ours. Although I mentioned this to our waiter nothing was done to address this sensitively.

I've been coming here for decades but this evening wasn't good. A glass of St Veran £17? My main course of steamed sea bass was so salty there was little else to taste. As I was the guest I couldn't complain. The service too was shambolic, they seemed to be in chaos and much running around with curt nods of 'yes, we'll be with you in a moment'. We asked six times to order a desert and finally gave up and asked for the bill instead. They were profusely apologetic, took the starters off the meal (which was generous but not really the point). Once that feeling of unease and impatience enters a meal the relaxation and pleasure have gone.

Great evening, great atmosphere and amazing food with perfect friendly service. Try the beet salad for starters and roasted Thai sea bass for mains. Finish off with the honeycomb ice cream. Would go back just for that!

I love this restaurant for its laid back elegance. Wonderful attentive service. I ordered salmon fillet and have to admit was the largest piece of salmon I have ever been served and it was delicious.
My three friends also enjoyed their dinner too.
Second time I have visited restaurant and the will be back.

Rare to find a spot that gets it all right! This is a don’t miss! From the moment you walk in, it’s simply a lovely experience! All service wasn’t point and the food was made with care. Try the squash soup and the tiger prawn appetizer! The salmon for a main course has an Asian fusion flavor. Delicious!

Appallingly poor + rude service. I arrived at the restaurant, showed the hostess my opentable reservation, and she sat me at a table. 2 min later, however, she came back saying she couldn't fine my reservation and accused me of showing her one from a different date. She then very rudely demanded I get up and return to the front of house, saying they were full and she wouldn't be able to seat me. I calmly made it clear that I wasn't leaving, and eventually the manager came over and sat me and my guest at a small table that was 3 feet from the piano, making it a very noisy meal. I'm a regular customer at this restaurant and eat there probably 8-10 times per year, yet they treated me like a complete undesirable. Worst service I've had in a very long time and really not cool :(

the food was amazing. Three of us cost £200 roughly which is a bit on the pricey side but the food was lovely so it comes hand in hand. The staff were pleasant and live piano was a nice touch. We went early in the evening so there were only a few tables so was nice and peaceful however if it was packed then it may be overcrowded and noisy.
It was a lovely start to our evening before we went for a show. Would definitely recommend to people heading out to that area or going to a show.
