Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Some of the best service and food I have had from a restaurant in London. The tasting menu was a great change from some of the more overdone venues in the city. Heartily recommend

A shaky reopening for front of house didn't spoil an excellent effort from the kitchen, but it did stand out from previous visits. The tasting menu was very nice, but things like not taking coats on a rainy evening and forgetting the table when we were trying to pay show a lack of attention to detail that let's the restaurant down.

Outrageously good fish restaurant at the top of a boutique hotel in the City. Lovely covered outside terrace. Service is outstanding - thoroughly deserving of it's Michelin star. Sadly outrageously expensive, despite all of it's outstanding qualities. Currently only serving their £100 a head tasting menu - it came to £250 a head which is too much for what they give.

We had a fantastic pre-lockdown meal at Angler. Staff were the perfect balance of attentive and friendly (my favourite). The food was delicious and wine selection was a nice range. A real asset to the City!

I had not been back to my favourite restaurant for a few months as I had intended to return for Christmas but it was not to be. I was so excited knowing I was returning to familiar surroundings.

My evening started already on a high note, when I found out that Tibor was going to be our waiter for our table. He certainly has grown very confident and was so pleased to bring us beautiful plates. He was supported by Kasia, the waitress alongside his service.
Our favourite table awaited us and it started well with a lovely glass of bubbly, only matched by exquisite food and so beautiful to look at. Once again, thank you for making our evening a truly wonderful experience and feeling so well looked after on each occasion.

テイスティングメニューの100ポンド・9皿のコースをいただきました。飲み物は別途ワインペアリングのby the glassのコースで100ポンドでした。生の桃やチェリーなどいくつかのフルーツにアレルギーがあったので当日申請したところ、不必要なメニュー変更をされてしまい、しかも変更されたメニューがあまり美味しくなかったことが残念でした。実際、メニューには私のアレルギー対象の果物は含まれていませんでした。しかしホール担当者が何度かキッチンに確認しにいき、最終的にはデフォルトのメニューで提供していただいてOKと合意したにもかかわらず、結局シェフがすべてのメニューからフルーツを取り除くか、フルーツ抜きのメニューに変更してしまったのです。9皿のうち確か2皿が完全にメニュー変更、2皿はデフォルトのメニューからフルーツ抜きで提供されました。
たとえば変更されたメニューのうち一つは蒸した白身魚に海藻?が絡まっていて日本風のだし汁がかけられたものだったのですが、だし汁はとても塩辛くて飲めないくらいでした。また、鯖のタルタルにリンゴとシソが添えられたメニューからはリンゴのみが抜かれてしまい、なんとも間の抜けた生臭い味わいになってしまっていました。また、このお店はシソ、わさび、Japanese artichokeなどの日本食材を多用しているのですが、前述のだし汁といい、Japanese artichokeが日本では何という野菜にあたるか尋ねても正確な回答が得られなかったことといい、日本食についてあまりよく知らないのにこれらの食材が使われてしまっている印象です。(ちなみにJapanese artichokeはチョロギでした。ごくごく小さく切ってあったのであまり存在感はなく、季節外れですがウドのような食感でした)
問題点ばかり記載しましたが、デフォルトのメニューを食べた夫はとても美味しいと言っていましたし、サービスはよく、特にワインペアリングは後半3皿のデザートまですべてワインを合わせてくる徹底ぶりで量もたっぷりでした。隣のテーブルが20人規模の宴会だったのでややうるさかったのですが、普段はもっと落ち着いて食事ができるのかもしれません。私の食事条件が特殊だったこともあり、おすすめできるかどうかの判断はやや保留としたいところです。

Booked for a birthday party and it was an excellent choice. Lovely ambience, starting at the bar for a introductory drink then settling in the restaurant for a wonderful meal. Service was a bit of a let down, apart from the restaurant manager who was attentive, the other staff appeared rather wooden which was a huge a let down for a Michelin-rated establishment.
