    My 2 guests were served inedible steaks fortunately my South African client was made hungry enough to eat his steak while my colleague couldn’t eat more than 2 mouthfuls. Tough and full of gristle Also no bottle lagers. Just cans! Ridiculous. The Marriott should completely review this restaurant. The service in the bar was poor (rude Eastern European lady) while the restaurant service was very good

    Expected more from this place. Booked it to celebrate our anniversary. The atmosphere there was poor would not go there for any special occasion. Food was ok but overpriced for what you got. Would not go back there again.

    This restaurant is in the Marriot hotel. It's decor is hotel-ish. Good cocktails (esp. the Jubilee). Tomahawk steak was a good choice for 2 people with a couple of sides and a salad. Food was prepared well and tasty. No complaints, just expect a hotel atmosphere rather than a cozy steakhouse vibe.

    The best bread with butter I tried in my life (every little detail counts? Then the meet was just fantastic, the flavor was amazing. This could easily be my favorite restaurant in the world so far (And I have travel a lot). The staff very nice with an international background, making the ambient very interestingly inclusive, and super nice. Kudos Gillray’s team !

    We were staying at the hotel for 3 nights. This review is purely for the dinner we had at Gillray’s and does not reflect on the outstanding service and food we received during our 3 day stay. There was a very rude person on the front desk. Our server was showing us to our table and the front desk person was trying to stop her saying the table was reserved. Yes it was reserved for us! I did not like the way she looked at us and spoke to our server. She did not smile she was quite off putting. I wanted the lobster. I was told no lobster. I ordered a fillet steak. People who ordered after us got lobster. Our steaks were poorly cooked. I asked for medium rare. My very small steak was cooked medium in places, medium rare in places. It had no taste. The side order of chips were dry and unappetising. Quite pleased I didn’t get lobster as I can’t imagine it would have been done well. The service was very slow indeed. By contrast our breakfast servers and food were brilliant in the same restaurant. The evening servers and chef need to take lessons from the morning chef and servers!

    Beautiful restaurant with view over the Thames. We had the pre theatre menu and it was good value for money. My only comment would be that the steak was warm but the chips were the best. The brownie dessert was delicious.

    Sat ready to tuck in, only to be presented with a list of dishes that were not available. Not what you would expect for a Tuesday evening.
