The service is really good
We enjoyed the best restaurant ever.
The combination of ingredients was perfect as well as the presentation of the courses. The fine selection of wines made this extraordinary experience complete.
The whole service was very well performed.
First class food, wine and service from start to finish. Flawless.
We absolutely loved the restaurant. A perfect dining experience. Memorable beyond believe. Very theatrical, exquisite food, great ambiance, and very attentive and professional staff. Loved it!
Core Was recomended by a chef in Singapore and we asked to meet and convey our complimdnts to Clair but sadly she did not want to meet us
Always a pleasure to dine here and this time was no different. The seasonal menu was particularly delightful, especially the Cheese & Onion course.
Awesome experience. My wife and I were there for our 40th wedding anniversary. It was spectacular food and service.
Charged us for the wrong menu but did refund and sort it out
Wonderful Dining experience and atmosphere. Would definitely visit again in the future.
it was the best dinner for our anniversary! thank you for not giving up on us even though we ran late!
Made to feel welcome .
Nothing was too much trouble
Always an outstanding experience!
The service was impeccable without being intrusive Catered for dietary requirements with no fuss Able to swap a dish out for something else we preferred and food excellent
So much attention to detail, from the vintage Michelin Guide books displayed on bookshelves to each delicious course being presented with both artistic and surgical precision. Every seat in the beautiful dining room is thoughtfully placed so that no guest ends up in a facing the wall for their entire meal. Service is outstanding. The courses are described well and perfectly paced.
Would definitely recommend CORE - overall excellent dining experience and definitely something I would come back to: Ambience, Service, Atmosphere, Presentation full marks. Taste is excellent, but just not quite blow your mind every mouthful you find elsewhere, but still excellent - 4.5/5
Best potato ever ! Excellent wine pairing. Very nice ambiance
Best restaurant ever !!
The staff was friendly and the food told a story. I will come back again.
A must try restaurant for foodies while visiting London. The innovative menu was spot on and service was warm and welcoming.
It was absolutely fantastic from start to end. The food was sublime and the service impeccable.
I highly recommend CORE. The experience was a delight to the senses, a gastronomic dream with wonderful passionate service in a very comfortable and fresh setting. This restaurant is MUST VISIT!
Went there to celebrate husband’s birthday. Simply awesome. Extremely friendly staff, but definitely genuine, not fake friendliness. Had a chef come over to present one of the dishes. The food is very sophisticated and delicious. Obviously requires a budget but worth it for sure. Five stars!
Wonderful experience - superb food presented beautifully. Each course explained by well trained and friendly staff. Perfect place for that special treat
Excellent experience in all regards. Service, food, wine were all top class. Beautiful dining room.
Just fantastic, one of the best places that we have been to. Wonderful food, atmosphere and staff.
Excellent service from the bar area to the restaurant. The food was superb although we found some dishes over salted! Having commented to the staff of saltiness, the kitchen did reduce the salt. We had the seasonal tasting menu- Outstanding dishes were the amuse buche, the seafood dishes, the lamb, the cheese plate !!
Outstanding experience. The food was excellent. Claire has developed a great culture and it resonates in the personality of the staff. It is not snooty in any way. I’d highly recommend to anybody
One of the best experiences that we ever had. The service, the food, the ambience, everything was fantastic.
outstanding ! delicious ! 2 Michelin-Stars: ..“ bien méritées“
Fabulous food, fabulous service. The whole experience was wonderful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Core. Every bite was full of deliciousness. The team at Core were professional and friendly. Thank you for such an amazing experience.
The classic menu with wine pairing was excellent choice
We loved the food. Would give 5/5 but one of my dishes which had potatoes was very chewy and hard instead of crispy. Had informed the staff but then there was no follow up from the kitchen regarding it. Lastly they had Superb presentation.
Probably, the best fine dining experience we have ever had and we've had more than our fair share.
Fantastic. Every dish is a work of art. Very creative in presentation and scrumptious in taste!
Eating at Core was our special treat while on vacation in London. My husband, son and I had the Core Classics tasting menu. It was delicious. I could see the progression of the meal with each dish. The service was attentive. The whole staff was friendly, professional and made us feel special. Thank you Chef Clare and staff for the wonderful meal.
Could not be better. An absolutely fantastic night.
Fantastic food & service. We were a table of four & chose the two different tasting menus with matching wines. Both were divine with incredible flavours often within a delicate sliver of food, beautifully presented.The wines truly complemented the food & everything was introduced & explained well. The staff were all exceptional with the best service I have ever experienced. It was my son’s 30th birthday & they certainly made him feel special. We will be back !
Wonderful dishes made using the very best of produce by an extremely talented kitchen brigade. Service in the elegantly appointed dining room is absolutely first rate, friendly, knowledgeable and very efficient. It is hard to imagine a more completely perfect dining experience.
