Although our waiter was good, it was clear he was covering too many tables, and a bit rushed. Waited a long time to order, and longer to get drinks. Food was good, but nothing outstanding. Felt the mains came v quickly after starter. Overall fine but wouldn't rush back - better places to go for better steaks.

We were staying at the hotel, so decided to try the restaurant and very pleased that we did. The restaurant was quite modern in design, with modern lights and open plan. The food was very good and we had read that it was one of the top steak restaurants in London, so we both tried the fillet steak and it certainly was very good, tasty and cooked as we liked it. The service was good, with a friendly waiter. Both before and after the meal we had a drink at the bar, which formed part of the restaurant. The barman was very friendly and very good at mixing cocktails. We enjoyed a very nice evening here and would recommend the restaurant and bar to anyone, whether staying at the hotel or coming in from elsewhere.

My starter was lovely but most of us had steak for main and it was chewy and tasteless. Not to the standard expected of a central London grill. The waiting staff were friendly and polite and hard working but service was slow, and my G&T was just gin and I had to go back to the bar to ask for tonic water. We were not given the pre-theatre menu we had booked until we asked.
The place was pretty empty so there was little atmosphere. It was clean and nice decor though.
They add a 12.5% service charge to the bill. This is increasingly common in London despite it being illegal for tips to make up waiting staff wage, and 10% being the customary amount to tip anyway. The customer should tip an appropriate amount based on service received. It’s not up to me as a customer to fund staffing costs additionally to paying the cost of the meal; that’s the cost of running a business and the staff should be paid properly.
It wasn’t awful, but there are much nicer places to eat in central for better value, so I wouldn’t bother.

Lovely ambience and food delicious. My only irritation is the fact that you need to ask someone for a card in order to use the lifts down to the Club level to visit the ladies! There is no mention of this when you arrive, so having given ourselves plenty of time to visit the ladies before heading to the theatre, we found ourselves rushing around trying to find someone who could give us an access card!

The location was great, and the service was excellent - especially Alex the sommelier/bar manager. Unfortunately there were only another couple of tables in use so there was little atmosphere.
The main frustration though was access to the toilets for which you need a key to access the lift. None of these seemed to work! I asked for help from the charmless hotel receptionist who clearly found this a huge inconvenience. The state of the toilets was also dreadful but when I again spoke to the receptionist she told me to tell the restaurant - she was very rude and unbelievably unhelpful.

Great location but the ambiance is a bit eclectic. Sort of a blend of formal and casual. The decor is quite nice but several tables had people in shorts (including us) and no one seemed out of place.

The food was good. Pork was really excellent. Steak was a bit on the tough side. Meatballs were first rate.

If you see an Opentable special though, make sure you mention it. The waiter did not provide the discounted specials until we asked.

Beautiful dining environment with soft lighting and music. Perfect for a birthday treat or special date. Service was good - we were charged for a bottle of water that didn't arrive on our table but this was rectified at the end. Food arrived quickly, hot and we'll presented - however both the steak and the lamb were full of gristle - I would have expected a slightly better cut of meat for this establishment. The cocktails were delicious - they are happy to make you a drink which isn't on their menu and the serving staff were happy to take photos. Overall a lovely experience and would return for another occasion. Easy to find from embankment station.

For a hotel restaurant, I was impressed. The food menu reminds you that you are in a hotel and is therefore limited. However, what it lacked in variety it made up for in taste.

The friendly and attentive staff in the restaurant were superb. The hotel staff on reception are somewhat cold and indifferent to restaurant customers. The ambience is sumptuous and takes to back in time to a 1920s speakeasy. If you have a visual impairment you might be in trouble as it's candlelit and quite dark.

Going to lavatories again reminded you that you are in a hotel. You need to request a key to access the lift (much like asking a teacher for a hall pass) and they are quite far away.

This was one of the most unpleasant meals I have ever had. I ordered sausages, mash and gravy only to be told there was no mash only quinoa! Quinoa with sausages and gravy? The chef did make me some mash but the gravy was a really weird tomato flavoured sauce. Dessert was burnt apple pie (is this what à la mode means?) and burnt caramel sauce. The Barnsley chop was apparently delicious as was the fillet of trout. The chocolate brownie was very strange and my friends left it.

We had the pre-theatre menu before a play at the Playhouse and all the food was delicious and served promptly so we could be on time. But what a little gem in the heart of Charing Cross - the room was beautiful as it’s the restaurant of the Grand Hotel.

Arrival and seating was a farce. After arranging a confirmed booking through OpenTable app I was questioned several times about the validity of my reservation, even when seated.
This was embarrassing in front of my guests!
The female waitress was more interested in chatting with her boyfriend behind the bar than serving us and looked annoyed at having to do anything.
The waiter on the other hand gave excellent service and was professional.

The point of a pre theatre is to serve good food in a fast and quick manner .. so that the customer is not stressed about getting to the theatre on time. Well I have never been so stressed about getting to a play on time despite the theatre being literally across the road. It took 25 minutes to take the order and a further 25 to serve the first course! The food is actually very good... and the prices competitive but you need a bit of extra time to fully enjoy. And just for info the toilets are quite far away on a different floor that needs a lift and a pass card.

Such a lovely surprise, very nice food and excellent service, wonderfully welcoming staff, full marks!
Selected because of the proximity to the Playhouse theatre, pre theatre menu really good.
