    Three friends enjoyed the delicious tasting menu. We met earlier for fizz in the bar which was perfect then went through to the spacious window table. Service was perfect, right down to the lovely lady who kept topping up our water glasses with chilled tap water throughout the evening! The one suggestion is to improve the range of wines and prices. With only a handful of bottles under the £100 mark you do feel a bit pressurised. I eat at D& D regularly so i know as well as great fine wines they could include a selection of more affordable wines - similar to Coq dArgent wine list for example. Otherwise a great evening, great setting and fabulous service!!

    Really nice food but overall experience was massively let down by Pierre who was sullen and rude. Our bill had three incorrect items on it which weren’t ours but when we complained he seemed very unhappy and never apologised. Unfortunately he was also on the desk when we left and didn’t say a word when we asked for our coats, just looked like it was beneath him. Don’t work in the service industry if you don’t want to be polite to people! His bad attitude tarnished our experience and my husband’s birthday

    Went on a weekday , week before Christmas and it wasn't very busy, yet was seated right next to another table of 2, even though most of the tables where empty. Overall ambiance was quiet and has a smart/semi formal vibe to it, probably good for business dinners/dates. Opted to take two tasting menus at 155 each which seemed abit pricey at a 1 star designation, but thought if the food is good then worth it. Servers were attentive and polite but they seemed lacking in confidence when announcing dishes and one of the descriptions of the dish was inaccurate. Didn't seemed as refined as other Michelin stars I've been to. Food wise, individual elements were very well cooked but most of the courses didn't seem to have coherence and/or didn't really work. For example the venison, whilst cooked perfectly, had a sauce without much punch to it accompanying it and also had a barbecued pear and a kebab. Whilst these elements individually tasted good they didn't seem to link together in one dish (pear too sweet to match the venison). The best and only memorable dish i'd recommend was the langoustine, this was cooked to perfection and the sauce was delicious. The sea bass tartar and crab salad were good but not exceptional and perhaps slightly lacked on flavour. The signature cod was well cooked but once again the sauce had little to no flavour and there was just a drizzle of it on the plate. Squid was also on the plate but it didn't link well to the cod and/or sauce and felt abit like a random accompaniment. Desserts were okay and of the two the cardamon ice cream was definitely the better (gianduja chocolate cake was other). The petit fours were the only thing which i would definitely not eat again, the chocolate filling was excessively sweet. At this price point, I would not try it again against other Michelin star restaurants or be able to recommend it.

    Lovely food in parts, odd in others. Too much bread and water, not a vegetable in sight with the mains. Great starters, and chefs bits and pieces, but we felt let down by the mains. Cheese was nice enough but no choice. Waited 45 mins to be told ‘there are only two soufflés’?! Despite being the only table in the end, I still had to waive down service on two occasions. Got drinks wrong.

    Everything about the Angler is absolutely brilliant and spot on. The food is outstanding and cooked to perfection. Full of flavours and textures but not overpowering or heavy. The service is impeccable. Attentive and on point but not overbearing or interfering. The decor and ambience is great. Not stuffy or feeling like you have to speak in hushed tones.

    I had booked the Angler for myself and my wife for our anniversary. We both had the tasting menu, and the chef modified the relevant dishes to suit my pescetarian diet. I was actually treated to the head chefs specialty cod dish which was absolutely amazing. Super helpful and friendly staff, amazing setting, and incredible food. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a special culinary experience in London.

    Poor service; we were seated and then ignored - took ages just to get a drink; then had to ask for the wine list. First of all courses came too quickly and before our drinks arrived, so we felt rushed, then long waits between courses; forgotten by sommelier and had to fill our own wine glasses, which is not something you expect in a Michelin starred restaurant. The cod smelled very fishy which generally means it wasn't as fresh as it could have been. Not the standard we had been expecting especially compared to other restaurants we have been to.

    Dear Mary1958, Thank you so much for your feedback and for visiting our restaurant. I want to apologize that you did not enjoy your experience. The team and I are very disappointed that we did not deliver the standard Angler service and can assure you the above points will be reiterated to our team to ensure that this does not reoccur. I also want to assure you that all of our fish comes in fresh every day and served on the day. We would be grateful to have the opportunity to make this up to you and invite you back to the restaurant so you can enjoy a true Angler experience. Please reach out to the restaurant directly so I can arrange this for you and discuss your concern further. All my best, George McGettigan Director of Food and Beverage

    This was our second visit to Angler, the first being immediately before lockdown when the circumstances were a little bit unreal. We had the tasting menu, and whilst we were worried about the cost we decided that the best is worth paying for and it was just that. The flavours and the tastes were indescribable with Caroline claiming that each course was her favourite in Portuguese to our waiter who came from that country but still spoke perfect English so that I didn't feel left out. A fantastic evening

    Food and wine pairings were outstanding. Although the staff were helpful and polite (the sommelier especially was great), the overall experience was let down a bit by the service - felt quite understaffed, particularly at the beginning of the evening when we were waiting for a considerable amount of time for our initial drinks to arrive (the appetisers arrived before our drinks). Other small things like the wine glasses all having lint/dust on the outside of the glass, presumably from being polished with an overly damp cloth. Ambience was fair - didn’t feel like a particularly intimate dining room. We were initially sat at a table closest to the entrance which was less than ideal as it was a main thoroughfare for waiters, and for guests arriving/leaving with the elevators dinging regularly. Our second table was an improvement, but they really need to get soft-close wine fridges.. the regular banging of the fridge doors was a bit disruptive to the experience. Overall an enjoyable evening, but didn’t feel up to the standard of other Michelin-level restaurants.

    Wonderful food, beautifully served. My only complaint and one which did not permit me to award 'Outstanding' at the beginning of the survey, concerned the excessive exposure to heat and to sunlight, despite there being mechanical shades. The staff either wouldn't or couldn't lower them for us. As a result, we were uncomfortably hot and/or dazzled for much of our meal. I would need reassurance on this point before contemplating a further visit.
