Went here for a pre-birthday dinner and opted for the Evening Standard Offer Menu.
3 courses £30 includes a glass of Chandon. The meal I chosen were;
1. Amuse Brouche - Pumpkin soup, ginger foam
2. Seafood Ravioli, lobster bisque
3. Steamed Salmon, leek, mussels, veloute
4. Honey cake, passion fruit, ginger ice cream
plus Broccoli and Cornish new potatoes on the side and a Glass of Wine.
Dish presentation - top-notch, Ambience - very upmarket, Service - excellent, Seating - very comfortable
Had a lovely evening and would certainly come again.

Service at Orrery is exceptional. The staff is genuinely going above and beyond and it makes for a very pleasant experience. The mena changes quite often and is quite interesting. Only negative is it is a bit expensive... but probably worth it.

Having booked for my wife’s birthday I found the experience most disappointing. The venue is stylish and the atmosphere lively. The food was good at times but uneven - I could not finish my fish main course so sweet and sickening it was. Service was a big letdown - indifferent at the best of times, inexistent at others. The staff completely forgot us towards the end of the meal, as soon as we stopped ordering wine. there was no sweet with teas and coffees and the staff seemed more interested in seeing our back. I had mentioned the bday occasion on booking but no effort was made to even mention it.

Definitely poor value for money - the main merit of he restaurant is to have tables available when most others in this category don’t - I can now see why this would be the case!

The food is really nice and the lunch menu very good value for money however sadly the French Manager and our waiter didn’t seem happy to be working. Their service was almost rude. There was a fire alarm as well in the middle of the service, which is not their fault but we all had to get out in the cold without our jackets and only had a small apology from the staff. Also, we booked a late lunch and they started ironing all of the tables around us and chatting away while we were finishing our coffees. The team on the other side of the restaurant seemed nicer and happier to be there.

Once again a wonderful experience. We had the tasting menu with the accompanying wine choice. All was perfect. The service really hits the spot: friendly and helpful without being overly obsequious.
I have only given 4 stars for value for money because, obviously, as a fine dining experience its not as cheap as many restaurants. For fine dining its pretty good value!

I went here with a friend I love the Orrery I have been many times before. The lobster ravioli was fantastic worth visiting just for that. I can’t wait to go back soon. The waiter who served us was really friendly but the tall dark haired waiter is one to be avoided.

Another return to Orrery! As ever it is a pleasing experience- lovely room and well spaced tables and supremely attentive service. We opted for the early evening menu which is excellent value (3 courses and a Bellini for £39,) as the dishes we wanted on the more expensive menu were also on that shorter menu.

The food is always very good - sophisticated if maybe not so surprising or memorable.) But in that relaxed ambiance we had an unhurried evening.

Unlucky to have two very noisy tables nearby - usually it is very calm there!

Definitely recommended if you like this setting.

The food and service were outstanding. From the amuse bouche and the wonderful bread to the chocolate with the coffee, the food is amazing and they handle special dietary requirements with tact and strict attention. The sommelier suggested wines (by the glass) that worked perfectly with the food we had chosen. Unfortunately there was a mix-up in the kitchen with our main courses but the staff handled the issue with consummate professionalism and could not have been nicer. We’ve been to Orrery before and always had wonderful experiences and we’ll definitely come back.

I have eaten at Orrery several times and the quality of the food is always reliable and of a very hight standard. This time I came with 2 cousins who do not live in London. They loved the venue, quality and choice of food and location. The service is always cheerful and friendly, never stuffy. The pumpkin soup amuse bouche was a delight and the seafood pasta very tasty. For mains we had lamb wellington and steak which were all delicious. The only slight disappointment was the chocolate fondant which tasted a bit floury. As always the staff were friendly and witty but not obtrusive. A lovely lunch, thank you.

Fabulous meal at Orrery. The lunch set menu is exceptional value for money with lots of choice. A couple of dishes have a supplement and the Missus had the crab starter which was fab and worth the supplement. The mains were equally superb and all considered the best meal we’ve had this year and we eat out pretty much every week. Some affordable wines too, the dining room is light and airy and service is both professional and fun. Looking forward to visiting again soon!

The hostess offered us initially a poor table location (front door area, beside wait station) despite the restaurant only having one other couple in it. We had a reservation so it is not as if we were walk ins. She did put us at a nicer table when I said the table was not appropriate.... but the damage was done and I felt annoyed and still am that we were offered a poor table when all others but one were vacant and did not fill over the course of the evening. Is this standard procedure to see if clients will accept a poor location first? The staff otherwise were attentive and the food was very good.

WOW! Totally blown away. Have been wanting to eat at Orrery for a good number of years, goodness known why I've not made it until now. Went for a lunch with a close friend on a Saturday, we had the 3 courses for £29. So many great things about this place - the impeccable service, the faultless cooking, gorgeous venue, so much choice on the menu that I wanted everything. We didn't feel rushed and so nice to eat lunch in a restaurant where you can hear each other when you chat! Bravo!

Fantastic service from the Orrery team as always. A couple of items not available from the menu this time but still great food and the sommelier was in great form as always with his choice of both white and red. The cheeseboard was a grand tour of France and the uk and paired with a great red.

Service was friendly and, apart from a long wait to get settle the bill, efficient. Champagne cocktails in the bar were wonderful also.
