Motcombs - Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We love Motcombs, we celebrated our wedding lunch here 10years ago!
The place is lovely, the food is delicious and its location is really nice.We spent a perfect dinner. We could not desire anything better. Just 2 objections:
1) when we arrived was like they did not know about our reservation
2) they did not apply the 50% off steaks on friday.
By the way we had a really special and pleasant night
This is a real neighbourhood gem. Priced very competitively for its position on Motcombe Street, the menu is varied, priced extremely keenly and changed very frequently. The food is delicious with speedy and attentive service. The wine list sports some very decent examples at a very fair price. Sunday lunch is available for two for under £30 and this too is stunningly good value and exceptionally tasty when we tried it.
We are frequent but irregular diners at Motcombes and will continue to be. Its a lovely cosy place and the downstairs dining room (weekdays only) is particularly impressive.
Once again we were happy to have chosen Motcombs, this time for a family group of 10. Non intrusive but great service, good choice of food for all courses and everyone was happy with their choices. Wine selection good. The atmosphere is comfortable and pleasant and pleasingly it is possible to hold real conversations as the noise levels are perfect.
This is our third visit to Motcombs and we have been impressed every time, The food is high quality presented well.The service is outstanding, the staff paying attention to all our needs. The House wines were very reasonably priced for London and excellent quality.
Consistently excellent meals. The cuisine is absolutely excellent in comfortable and quiet surroundings in Motcombs basement Wonderful choices on the menu all served with fresh, high quality produce and excellent flavours. Good portions, well presented by excellent and unobtrusive staff. The service is well paced. I have returned to Motcombs on many occasions and I have always had a good meal and experience. TOP MARKS and good value for money. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND
We will continue to return to Motcombs as it consistently proves to be a wonderful dining experience on all levels. It's quite an old fashioned yet very pleasing environment - low-level lighting, candlelit, good sized tables, white tablecloths and comfortable chairs in the basement dining room. It is nicely cooled with efficient air-conditioning and, most importantly, fronted by exceptionally amiable yet not intrusive staff. Superb menu, beautifully cooked, presented and well timed in its delivery. Good, fresh produce and very adequate portions. We enjoyed starters, mains deserts and beverages. Without exception, the evening ticked all boxes. Excellent value at around £40 per head. Highly recommend
Having been to Motcombs once before for lunch I thought I would try it again and bring a client along and I wasn't disappointed. The food and choices were excellent, the atmosphere was perfect for a client lunch and the service was great, I will definitely be back.
I dined on my own at Motcombs, London SW1, as I have done 1 or 2 times per year over the past 10 years. The food and ambience are consistently excellent. The choice and quality of wine (red) offered by the glass was disappointing on this occasion. Service is efficient but would be improved greatly if they could just smile ocasionally and demonstrate a little more warmth towards their clientele. There is also the hint of an expectation of a tip, despite adding 12.5% to the bill!
Motcombs, London SW1 - fantastic food, great service - understated but never ignored. Only down side was that gratuity included, yet bill presented with a total then clear space for voluntary gratuity. Luckily I'd read reviews so was aware but you could easily be caught out. Fault of management and not staff. Would still definitely go back though. It's one of our favourite London dining venues.
Great, intimate setting. Staff is warm and friendly, and there are plenty of them, so service is prompt and attentive. Kitchen is open, so you can watch the food preparation, but it's not at all intrusive noise-wise. Great variety on the menu, and I've never had a bad meal here.
Motcombs, Knightsbridge, London. We had dinner there on Saturday evening, 11th September. The food, the staff and the ambiance in the basement restaurant is excellent. It was relatively quiet for a Saturday night but if anything that improved our experience. The meal came to£83 for two including a £20 bottle of wine, the cover charge and the service. I would say it was reasonable value although I could not understand the £2 per head cover charge.
Motcombs, London is a favourite of mine and I have never been disappointed. It is a joy in every way. The decor is elegant but relaxed and the food and service is excellent. It is an ideal lunch spot and and is usually busy with an interesting range of characters!
Evening dining is equally good but the 'buzzy' atmosphere is in my opinion best at lunchtime. It is ideal for couples/parties who want to have a cosy/convivial evening.
I would highly recommend this venue.
As every Motcombs was warm and welcoming and the atmosphere was reflected in both the staff and the customers. The food is always great, without exception. We had the avocado and prawn dish and the scallops as starters followed by the lemon sole in parmesan breadcrumbs, the calves liver & bacon, the shepherds pie and the lobster risotto, all of which were hot, tasty and excellent. Being pretty stuffed we couldn't manage a dessert but finished off with coffees and peppermint tea. Excellent!
Motcombs is in Knightsbridge, London, a beautiful location especially as Motcomb Street is decorated with tasteful Christmas trees! Wonderful cosy dining room downstairs, we had a mirrored alcove table, quiet for talking but we could still see what was happening around us. Excellent fish and seafood. Wine list looks scary at first but some very reasonable new world wines to try too. Service discreet but efficient.
