The service was impeccable. Beautiful dining room. Very kind, polite and friendly staff, aswell as being professional.
Fabulous lunch. Warm friendly staff and amazing food.
Everything was perfect the attention to detail was amazing. My daughters 18th and she was made to feel very special. All the chefs and kitchen staff stood and greeted us on arrival including Claire. Absolutely fantastic food
What an elegant treat! The food was outstanding and the staff pleasantly attentive and well informed.
By some distance the best dinner we've ever had - a nailed-on 3rd Michelin star will be awarded in 2021. From the moment we walked in to the moment we were shown out it was a truly outstanding experience. Its taken me 15 years to get into a Clare Smyth restaurant but well worth the wait. AMAZING!👏👏👏
Excellent, as always. The Cep tart is one of the best starters I’ve had. The additional truffle pasta course was a real treat (I wish it was available all year, hint hint). And the Coreteaser is just as perfect as it has ever been - we considered ordering an extra one for good measure. Service is always attentive and enthusiastic. Will be back as soon as possible in the new year. Clare is a genius and you really should treat yourself to this experience.
Amazing food in a lovely relaxed setting where you can wear what makes you feel comfortable. The staff are both friendly and professional, ensuring you feel special and are well looked after. The food is of course faultless. We chose the seasonal tasting menu and it was all quite incredible. Beautiful delicate flavours. The crab dish was my absolute favourite. I have eaten at all the Uk 3 Michelin star restaurants and this is by far my favourite of them all. It was our second time to Core and I know we will return in the new year, hopefully with other family members once it is possible. And the loveliest of touch was when you walk past the chefs when you enter the restaurant and they all take time to wave hello. Lovely.
By far the best food experience you could have. Never fails to impress, superb👍
Just fantastic. Super friendly staff. Amazing food. Great wine choice. Lovely atmosphere. Can’t recommend enough.
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. It was a secial occasion for my daughter and they made her feel so special without going over the top.
Cannot recommend highly enough.
Thank you to the Core team that made for a wonderful evening.
Absolutely the best restaurant in London
Food was excellent and presented so beautifully by Clare and her team, everything was delicious
Amazing creativity, fascinating to see the Chefs preparing your dish, worth trying at least once in one’s life
Unbelievable flavour, creativity and service. It’s well worth going for the seasonal menu and the wine pairing.
This was our fourth visit to Core, and it won't be the last. A lovely warm welcome, friendly staff, delicious food, great wine matching, and we got to meet Clare! Such a beautiful restaurant, well thought out and tastefully done. Well worth a trip to London
The ambience is beautiful from walking through the door and were welcomed by all the kitchen staff including Clare herself. ALL Core staff and so professional knowable and so friendly making you feel right at home. We decided on the tasting menu even though we are not big eaters but we managed just fine to leave no trace of food on any plate:-)
Nothing short than delicious.
The best dining experience in London. Having been to a number of the best restaurants in London this is definitely up there with the best. The service was immense. The staff are so knowledgeable and clare and her team produce amazing food.
From the greeting at the door to the coat collection and farewell everything was superb. Wonderful to see Clare in the kitchen overseeing the teams. The food was amazing and luxurious. The wine and water pouring never missed a skip. The pacing of the multi course menu was bang on. What a wonderful experience!
Fantastic afternoon - lovely service and outstanding food from start to finish. It’s not cheap but great for a special occasion or a treat. Would thoroughly recommend.
Best meal and experience I have had since a visit to Gordon Ramsay Hospital Rd many years go. A warm welcome, personable, professional , knowledgable team....SUPERB food on the Classics menu, gentle ambience...a thoroughly delightful evening. Two stars well-deserved...i feel a 3rd may be imminent...
Perfect balance. Delicious food, creative dishes, well balanced quantities, attentive but not overpowering service, well distanced tables. 3rd visit did not disappoint
Very consistent courses throughout the service, which was exemplary.
Fantastic restaurant, great food. Great afternoon.
Amazing experience There is a reason why Clare is the best. Quality of ingredients was outstanding
We were the first customers to enter post lock-down and were treated like royalty! All the kitchen staff greeted and clapped us to our table, as did the front of house staff!!
We had the Ala carte menu so effectively 6 courses with add ons Every piece of food was perfect in taste and presentation.
It was clear that the front of house staff had been starved of their lifeblood - customer interaction! They could not have been more friendly/courteous/professional - a team of which Core/Clare can be extremely proud!!
We will certainly return and will encourage our friends to the excellent experience that is Core Dining
Our second visit and the food was even better than the first time. Simply amazing.
Amazing dinner, wonderful service! Food was excellent and we were sat in-front of the kitchen and watched all the process of preparing and i loved it!
Everything about this restaurant is excellent - a credit to Clare and her team.
Wife’s 40th birthday - very special. Fantastic food and service, highly recommend.
Absolutely fantastic food and service. Staff were unbelievable, and atmosphere was just right
Amazing and authentic food. Brilliant and attentive service. Great sommelier
Great experience overall. Some dishes were very impressive. Also minor dishes were served. But overall really good.
Fantastic meal and a great atmosphere. The scallops and venison were fantastic. Great wine selection. Staff very knowledgable and coping well under the current rules. Thank you
It was our 10th anniversary and certainly a memorable one. Core is indeed a place where cooking, art, innovation and luxury come all together to give you an experience like no other. We certainly look forward to going back.
A very well run restaurant. A really good layout to be able to enjoy the dining experience with good, (very rich) food. Not looking to find fault and nothing was wrong but nothing stood out as exceptional either. We ate from the a’ la cart menu, added an extra dish and everything was good. We sampled wine, Champaign and cocktails and enjoyed it all. Compared to other similar restaurants its good, i’m happy we went but I would not choose go back in a hurry based on this experience.
Loved it definitely go again
Stellar, memorable experience . Food was exquisitely presented and an explosion of flavours that went on and on. The servers were charming and the ambience scintillating. One of the best meals I've ever had.
Phenomenal food for a very special occasion. Not only was the food exceptional but as diners you were made feel really special.
