Amazing decor, lovely staff, appalling food. There was hardly any zucchini ... mostly breading with a missing zucchini inside? How could you serve that?

As always it was a great meal and visit. My seat wasn’t terribly comfortable (there was no foot rest at the end of the table so my feet were dangling) but everything else was perfect.

lovely atmosphere in the evening if you like clubbing. Good menu and the flavours were excellent. i think the starters were small but the size of the portions in general are fine. i would go again but during the day and i would recommend the food.

The manager at the time of our arrival was very unaccommodating with a request for an easy access table due to a health condition. This did spoil the occasion

Fabulous decor, food and location. Initially noise level was a bit high for those of us over 30, but it quietened down during the evening and we had a lovely time.

Just love it here. Fabulous decor, great service and imaginative food - that tastes delicious. Stand out starters were tuna carpaccio, spicy fried shrimp, tuna and wasabi tacos - altho they were all great. Then from the mains, I had the blackened cod with wasabi ... served and ate beautifully. But it was clean plates all round! For dessert, the Orbiz ... or Orbitz ... looked stunning and again tasted great. Love that the food is so stylish - but not at the expense of flavour. Will be back ... again!

the design is great, the chairs are comfortable, the room is very well designed.
the lobster linguini was tasteless, with no tomatoes and hardly any lobster.
the sole goujons were over fried.
the champagne was warm.
the desserts look amazing but taste awful.
the food seriously lets the place down.

Lovely restaurant with very attentive and friendly service. Food was delicious and presentation of our dessert was beautiful! We went late in the evening and I found this to be the perfect time to go as it was more quiet you could actually hear the music and have a decent chat. Will be back!

Lovely atmosphere. Bustling Saturday afternoon lunches and or brunches. Food was good. However food was Luke warm. Not hot coming out as you’d expect.

One meal had to be returned as was simply too cold. And we ploughed through the rest as we were so hungry!
Slight downer. But overall good and would come back again

Went for lunch with family. Food quite good but with some disappointments.. Muffin of eggs Benedict was stale. Leaves of rocket and parmesan salad were wilted. Food, though generally good is far too expensive for what it is. Crab starter for close to £18 was enough to feed a small cat not a human.
Waiter forgot aforementioned salad order. Had to chase.
Space nice and airy but atmosphere ruined with too loud Eurotrash dance music playing in all corners. If I wanted to feel like I was having lunch in Ibiza I’d have gone to a bar in Camden Market. When I asked if it was possible to turn the music down they said it was their policy to have it loud.
Staff nice but seemed distracted and a bit stressed.
It feels like it should be a more elegant affair (which is what I was expecting following reviews) but our experience was somehow dragged down by these things and a feeling that this is an upmarket canteen / bar for wealthy Selfridges shoppers rather than an uplifting restaurant experience.
On the plus side chips both sweet potato and normal variety were delicious.
I’d come again at a push if hungry and happen to be in the building but won’t go out of my way again. Maybe dinner is a better experience.

We had a wonderful meal here last Friday with our three children in the early evening. The service was good and very friendly with a nice choice of dishes and something for everyone. It is quite expensive but lovely for a special occasion. The interior or the restaurant is gorgeous and the mirrored bathrooms are fabulous!

I've been a few times now and have 2 recommendations:
1. Thursday evening at the bar is great, with friendly local people.
2. The ladies loos are wonderfully decorated with full length bevelled mirrors on every wall, creating beautiful light and infinitive reflections.

The food is good but not amazing. The service is professional and friendly. The Hirst Pegasus sculpture is OTT and super fun.
