Absolutely loved every aspect of this restaurant. The food is outstanding, freshest ingredients,prepared to perfection especially the buratta with blood orange and heritage radicchio and the carpaccio. The service is attentive and friendly whilst not being intrusive and they have an impressive selection of wines all at reasonable prices. The cocktail list is also excellent and could tempt you into staying from brunch to dinner to try them all out.

Good food and drinks. The service could have been a lot better, our waitress made a mistake in our order. Not a big deal and it happens and the manager apologised but our waitress didn’t even acknowledge the error. They also served our food twice when there was no one at our table (my friend and nipped to the toilet and then I had to take a call outside - both times the waiters tried to leave our food growing cold at the table rather than wait 2 minutes for our return). For a meal for two we were charged £180 so would expect a higher level of service.

I went for lunch with my granddaughter. Our welcome and the ambience was excellent. My granddaughter is Vegan and I have an allergy to chilli, both requests were dealt with professionally and with a smile. It was no trouble. We ordered, service was prompt but not rushed, so far so very good. I had prawns as a starter, they were hard and very dry, the sauce was ‘watery’. Onto the main dish, my granddaughter was happy with her pasta, I had lamb. How disappointing! The meat was extremely chewy, to the point that it was difficult to eat, and the vegetables tasteless. I have visited beforehand for brunch and the meal was pleasant. All in all, it would seem that the chef was not up to standard. Sharron Phillips

First visit, won't be the last. The food was great - best beef carpaccio I've ever had. Pasta was on-point, main of lamb delish, and the desserts got a thumbs-up too. But the star of the show was the service. It wasn't intrusive, but it was super-professional. Every time I looked up to get someone's attention, they were there in a flash. All in all, a lovely evening.

On arrival our table was ready .courtiously shown to our table drinks order taken within a few minutes . We had cocktails to begin with which were amazing .we had various starters but notably was the carpaccio of beef which was very good then went onto main course which we had crab linguine again fantastic.after our main meal we had to have dessert ,so what better way to Finnish off an Italian meal than having tiramisu .
Overall a great experience and can not wait to come back.

The food was great. The only drawback was the noise. So many restaurants are far too noisy these days. It makes having a conversation difficult. Restaurants can reduce noise by adding items like carpets and table linin. Modern minimalist design is hard on the ears and bad for the vocal chords. Restauranteurs need to be reminded their eating establishments are not nightclubs, discos or concert halls.

Fantastic evening until we were picked on ..... apparently there was a two hour window..... not at all mentioned in the booking but a waiter who we hadn’t seen all night suddenly told us ‘ all of london has one’ ( ie two hr window) we had not long been offered and bought another bottle of wine.... clearly an attempt to gain all the money yet not offer a comfortable service. The table next to us did not get asked to move even tho they were only fifteen minutes behind us! I decided as we were 3 women we were seen as an easy target! The waiters were lovely- just this one guy who tried to evict us! Lovely food so a shame about our treatment!

It was a mixed experience at Benardi’s / the food was excellent but the service was shockingly poor. We order was wrong, we had to ask for dessert menus and then ask to order dessert. They over charged us for an additional bottle of water and we just couldn’t be bothered to wait again for service.

Loved he food- disappointing service.

I have been many times. This time I was shocked by the terrible service. Three people had to find out table, then we sat down and weren’t given menus had to ask twice. The wine we ordered we were given the wrong bottle. The out plates were not cleared. We were not asked if we wanted more drinks. After our meal we were given desert Menus and never asked if we wanted anything. I asked for the bill three times. I was shocked by the service and would not go back !!!

Selected this restaurant pretty much based on the previous reviews and was not disappointed. From the moment we arrived to the time when we reluctantly had to leave, the whole experience was exceptional.

On arrival, we were greeted with a professional warmth lacking in most places today. The restaurant is beautifully styled with a relaxed but competent feel to it. But the staff are some of the best we've encountered recently.

Our waiter was attentive to our needs and was extremely helpful in terms of managing our time limitations (train to catch). He expertly directed us through the menu and the service that ensued was swift without being rushed. Food was delicious.

Definitely planning a return visit when we can savour the whole experience rather than be dashing off for a train.

Well done guys. Wonderful dinner.

We enjoyed a very nice dinner with friendly and efficient service. The food is very inventive with excellent pasta and fish which is all served alongside a lively atmosphere. One minor criticism was that the excellent Soave Classico which I ordered was not properly chilled and the staff were unanable to find an ice bucket which somewhat detracted from the wine. Nonetheless Bernardis is well worth a visit.

I like this restaurant, the service is SO good, the food really is creative, criticism? The provision of so much loud music for Sunday lunch is just unnecessary, the louder the music, the louder people shout until it almost becomes unbearable! (They might like to look at their wine prices, they really are voer the top, good wines but extortionate prices!
