    We both had a most enjoyable evening at Forty Dean Street. The food was delicious and well presented. Drinks were great. We were looked after throughout the evening. It is a beautiful place to dine. Would definitely recommend.

    I have been here before and had an incredible time in the past. Service levels are now at a point I would not return. I visited with a friend last night and the waitress put Parmesan on my vongole I am highly dairy intolerant and did not ask for Parmesan. They had to take my food away and remake it for me, it at which time my friend had finished his meal. He also didn’t get the containments he asked for. We complained but the manager gave a very basic response which I found rude. I asked for compensation and it was refused. Will not return

    Lovely pre theatre meal. Was quite busy and therefore service was a little slow but that did not bother us at all. Staff were super. And food was excellent would definitely recommend, but give yourself a good hour before you need to be at the theatre

    Atmosphere and general buzz really good. Starters were all good but main courses a little disappointing. The lobster spaghetti looked like spaghetti bolognaise and at £30 was not what we expected. Service very good.

    Fantastic food & cannot fault the service either. Ratter disappointed they couldn’t make me a Mojito cocktail, my second choice of drink was a vodka, lime & soda, sadly they don’t have lime cordial, so my third choice of drink was a Prosecco. The seating was very close together, loads of empty seats so why did the waitress choose to sit two couples either side of us? Had we not been sitting so close we would have had dessert & more drinks, shame! So went to a bar nearby instead.
