Paulina our waitress was very accommodating. She managed to persuade the chef to allow us to have breakfast as we had just missed the slot.
The food was well presented and the service impeccable

This visit was disappointing, as we booked booth, only to find that we were given a small table. Fortunately, one staff member noticed the issue my disabled husband had with this before the 3rd member of our booking arrived and a lady at another table kindly offered to swap with her. It was clear our tabled hadn't been reserved.

We were given complimentary drinks, a Diet Coke and a Tea. However, the food order didn't go well either, as a Jerk Chicken Burger was ordered with Gluten Free Bread. It was only when the food was virtually ready they came to say they had no GF Bread. Fortunately, our friend said that was OK, he would have it without the bread, as the food came 2 mins later. If he had wanted to change his mind they would have had to start the order again. We also asked for a glass tap water, that never materialised.

When it was time to pay, she did say she had given us a small discount, to make up for the bread. I think if they hadn't done that we would have complained about the Jerk Chicken, as it wasn't as it usually is, it was just a few strips of Chicken, like Goujons, not a Burger. When she brought the bill, she brought the card machine, waiting to be paid, before we had even had chance to check the bill - all very disappointing.

We visited Tate Modern and we wanted an easy going solution after the exhibition, close to Blackfriars tube station.
Cosy atmosphere and polite waiters.
Tuna salad was excellent and the burger a bit dry but we overall enjoyed it

It was a Friday night, very quiet ambience and atmosphere .

Service was slow as the bar seemed to have issues, the wait for food with limited bar menu was disappointing.

It wasn't what I expected for a planned social gathering in the City.

Would go back on who ty her night to see if things are better
