Lovely lunch and enjoyed food despite mix up with salad being served with no anchovies. I Love the setting of this restaurant. On this occasion not as perfect as before had to wait and call to get service few times. Normally full attentive to needs.

Came with my boyfriend during restaurant week on our first trip to London. It was an excellent date night. The restaurant week menu was delicious- he ordered the sirloin and I ordered the truffle tortellini. We also got the spinach and pear salad as an appetizer and the popcorn Creme brûlée for dessert. I’m not exaggerating when I say everything was excellent, from the service to the food. Very reasonable cost. It’s also a beautiful restaurant. Will definitely be back.

The three of us chose different items from the menu - Lamb, Swordfish and Steak - all were excellent. The wines were nice although the Chablis came warm and we had to wait for it to be chilled at the table which was not as it should be.

George always gives a wonderful welcome but it is frustrating that i always seem to have to flag down a waiter to order - and while I know it’s a very busy period over lunches - there seems to be an inconsistency with staff looking after particular tables. I think it could be smoother and faster for everyone.
However, the food is consistently good and overall I still will visit relatively often.

Food was not very good - black pudding overcooked and the bacon not crisp as promised on the menu.
Plus point - no charge for the food on the bill. Staff did so without requesting it.

The food was delicious, our waiter was great, however the Maitre D was so rude when we arrived I won't be returning. He completely and utterly ignored me as a woman and only spoke to my male companion. I It was so shockingly obvious I was being dismissed for not being male. When we arrived the Maitre D only spoke to my colleague when he told us to wait and then again when he asked about the reservation and begrudgingly made eye contact with me when it was established I had actually booked the table. He then asked my colleague if he could take his coat and bag but didn't ask me at all!!

Such a shame to have a man like him as front of house, first impression of such a lovely restaurant with great food.

Good location and seating but it was freezing cold as there is air conditioning coming through vents near the window side of the brasserie. No decent brown toast, mediocre service despite plenty of staff there, the toast is underdone, the plates on which they serve it are worthy of a children’s tea party they are so small...all in all could be much better.

It was the perfect location for a reunion with a very old friend. The staff were lovely and didn’t rush us at all. Tasty food with a particularly delicious dessert - coconut and lime tart. Beautiful building too.

It has been a while since I last visited 1 Lombard Street but my memories of great food and atmosphere were still correct.

We both ate from the set menu and both chose to upgrade to the steak. What a delightful decision. It was perfectly cooked, totally delicious. We washed it down with a bottle of white.

The service was attentive but not intrusion per usual.

Beautiful venue with decent food and prices - but the music is TOO LOUD and the chatter from the bar is noisy. Not enough sound proofing so it is echoey.

We had a very enjoyable meal at this restaurant located in an interesting building. It was a little noisy as there were a lot of people congregated at the bar and service was a bit slow, but it was not a problem as we were in no rush. The set menu had some excellent choices and was very reasonably priced.

I was quite disappointed following my recent visit and having been here before several times. The service was just not as attentive as you would expect and the food was a combination of overcooked and cold which was a real shame. I have to say that the restaurant staff did their best to make things good when I told them but a little more attention to detail upfront would be far better in terms of customer experience.

Very noisy and staff unfriendly. I booked with a request for a quiet corner table for a business meeting but the table given was not entirely appropriate. The noise required us to repeat ourselves a number of times when ordering.

We waited an hour for our food. Apparently the chef was not happy with one of the dishes and cooked a new one but we weren’t told this until we’d waited almost an hour. Nothing taken off the bill, no complimentary drink or coffee - and 12.5% service automatically added to bill. Food fine but expensive.

The staff are efficient, friendly but not over-bearing. They leave you to enjoy the meal, have your meeting, etc.

Disappointing experience - the restaurant crams all diners into one corner rather than spacing them out across the floor, which results in a noisy, hot environment. Service was slow and frosty and we had to return lamb that was raw inside. Surprising for a restaurant that prices itself as rather upmarket.
