    This place was such a shame. £48 for a rib-eye and what arrived was a thin, void of any flavour piece of meat. I’ve had better steaks at flat iron. The whole point of a great ribeye is the fat, the bone and the marbling. This had none of it. My husbands ham was ok but nothing to right home about for £34. The cheapest bottle of wine was £65 which is ridiculous, I’m all for spending a lot of money on a beautiful wine, but having recognised quite a few of the bottles and then seeing the price tag, we’ve have the same bottle for a lot less in other restaurants. This is the restaurant time forgot, dated decor and not in an ironic way, stuffy service and zero ambiance. It was Friday night and this place was dead! Such a shame as I had such high hopes for it. We will never come back here. We were previously at noble dot for a drink and wish we had stayed there, where the wine was reasonable and the food coming out of the kitchen looked incredible. There are 100’s of way more incredible restaurants that are worth your time over this place.

    I thought it was overpriced for what it was. Not a memorable experience.

    We highly recommend this restaurant - we went there for dinner and had 3 courses. The food was technically really excellent, we particularly enjoyed these two mains: monkfish and ham special with madeira sauce. The service was great and we felt very well looked after (thanks Salvatore, Federico, Nino and Sofia!). Good flow between the courses, without lots of waiting around. Very nice ambience too. Looking forward to returning!

    The food was nice, but the plating looks where nothing like the pictures on the site, the service was way to eager. Every 5 minutes there was someone to ask us anything, within 2 hours we were out and about. We where looking for a Romantic evening, but felt rushed

    I first came when it was Park Place by William Drabble. That was the best French food I had ever had and I’ve dined at a lot of restaurants including La Gavroche Marcus, Joel Robuchon. Unfortunately Francatelli and the new menu is not for me. It doesn’t show off the chef’s amazing talent which is disappointing. Nothing wrong with the food but nothing memorable either. It will be for a different clientele. If Park Place comes back will be back in an instant.

    This was our second time here. We went there before New year the food was excellent so we decided to go there to celebrate our anniversary. The service was exceptional, especially Sofia and Federico. Starters and Desserts were delicious but the main was a bit salty for Gammon Ham. However everything is excellent and we will be back again.

    We had a really enjoyable lunch. We chose from the a la carte menu as we didn’t find enough on the set lunch menu to excite us. We all enjoyed our meals; the steaks were really tasty and tender, the fish and it sauces terrific and the parmentier potatoes delicious. So much so that we asked for and were given the recipe. It was a very quiet restaurant, but the service was courteous, knowledgeable and most friendly. A wonderful experience.

    While it was a nice meal with good service we were underwhelmed compared to the price and reputation. The ribeye had to be sent back as it was not cooked properly (on top of that it was very uninspiring to have a piece of meat blandly sitting on an unmemorable plate with a small jug of really not very nice sauce). The cottage pie was delicious. Otherwise, if we were staying at the hotel we would have been really happy with the in house restaurant - but I wouldn’t recommend travelling to it
