Tiny, tiny portions at exorbitant prices. For another £5 or so you can get a whole Dover sole somewhere like Scott’s instead of their tiny turbot which was so small that they served it in a cereal bowl. The starter of rabbit cannelloni and langoustine did not taste of much but it looked nice. Two extra mains were ordered as people were still hungry after their starters and mains. They give you plenty of bread, presumably to fill you up. We didn’t order any desserts as we saw at other tables how small they were. We shall not be returning.

The meal was good. Mayonnaise/cream in earlier taster menu dishes could have been less, and other flavours more pronounced. Later courses in menu good. Second strawberry dessert very good. Wine selection could have been broader but was acceptable.

We were probably too loud a group ourselves. However the hosts were incredible, helped us chose a perfect wine. The meals were incredible, both delicious and beautifully put together.

We tried the 7 course taster menu - this was excellent. If I'm really picky one of the dishes was perhaps slightly too salty, but the overall standard was very high. The highlight for me was the rhubarb, ginger and basil pre-desert. Good service and I think good value. We will return!

Arriving earlier than my guest, I sat out on the veranda in the early evening, abgreatvview of the working city, the service was excellent from start to finish.
The food was perfect and the flow of the evening was uninterrupted and flew by quickly

Restaurant, food and service were great.

However, as I had booked table through the Opentable website I thought I had booked the Evening Standard offer. Unfortunately the offer was not available on Saturday night but when I made the booking this was not made clear to me. I therefore went with my friends on the night only to discover we could only have the A la Carter menu. Much more expensive than I had expected and very embarrassing to be told my understanding of what I had booked was unavailable!
Would it be possible for the Opentable website to make sure I am notified if an offer I have selected is not available for that particular date and time?

Meal started well, with the usual pre-starter bits and pieces, starter was very good sand the service impeccable.

The meal was let by a bland main course for both of us, with flavors so subtle as to be almost invisible.

The Evening Standard 3 course deal is great value anyway but the exceptional quality of every dish (incl 3 amuse bouche) make the Angler a standout option every time we go. Coupled with excellent service and a relaxed atmosphere, this is a must.

We've been meaning to try Angler for a long time and finally had the opportunity. The setting and spacing between tables was excellent and the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a shorter tasting menu which was varied and very tasty as were the amuse bouche's. I had brill which was melt in the mouth and my husband had halibut also delicious.
We will definitely return - it was outstanding

Positioned as the penthouse of a classy yet lively hotel, Angler’s dining room is stylish and understated, which is just what you’d expect from a French inspired gourmet eatery that finds its home in the hustle and bustle of East-Central London’s corporate hub.

From the foyer to the final floor, the transition between hotel staff and Angler’s own is seamless and welcoming. Coats and bags are exchanged for a luxury leather token and you’re guided to a table of your approval.

The introductory courses come out in well measured intervals and sizes, making a perfect bridge between arrival and starter. The amuse-bouche came as 4 dainty bread rolls, delicately crafted and full of rich complimentary flavours. The hors d’ouvres followed, 2 unique takes on the classic cracker, a French twist on a British classic.

The wine was poured, a bottle of Austrian’s (not so) finest, the Blaufränkisch was dry and full bodied, however not being a connoisseur myself, we should have maybe made more use of the friendly sommelier. The final appetiser: a slice each of sourdough, freshly baked and accompanied by a smooth herby butter, a perfect end to the hat-trick of welcoming dishes.

The starters were appropriately sized and beautifully presented. The scallop was slightly overcooked but the Dorset crab was an almost perfect dish. The mains were both nicely sized and accompanied by an interesting array of artisan flavours. The Turbot, being one of the most expensive mains, was slightly bland, however the Cod stole the show and proved to be very good value for money.

The night was capped by a quadrant of chocolates, the milk far outperforming the white, and we was left to finish off our wine completely uninterrupted by the staff for almost 45 minutes, a courteous understanding by the French contingency, mirroring their traditional custom.

Would very much recommend, whilst the cost may limit this restaurant to special occasions, it’s a price worth paying for top quality seafood.

The restaurant is smart and modern located on the top floor of South Place Hotel, Moorgate. It has a small bar and outside terrace.
My husband and I had the set lunch menu with a glass of Chandon bought from Buyagift. The quality of the food was good and the service was excellent. However, we were disappointed by the size of our main course served in small bowls as if the portion had been cut down. Also the wines were very expensive but we had a glass of the Italian house white which was pretty awful. On the plus side, we enjoyed the fresh crusty bread, the canapé, pre dessert and petit four.
