We were welcomed very nicely, we were told there would be a wait for our mains which was ok, then they brought out the children’s who are 10 and 14 first then my husband and I waited a further 30 minutes for ours! The waitress said the chef wanted to feed our children first so they didn’t get upset, I pointed out to the waitress their ages and they are not toddlers!! When our main finally came out my husbands burger was very over cooked, my potatoes were cold so it was sent back. They brought us some fries instead which nobody wanted!
Over all very disappointing and we would never return or recommend.

Classy and relaxed. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and unhurried. Given that it’s in Mayfair and everything is high quality, the pricing is reasonable. I’d certainly go again.

A gem of a find. Met for a leisurely lunch with girlfriends and couldn't have picked a better venue. From the greeting to paying the bill the staff were outstanding - attentive yet left us alone to chat with minimal interruptions. The food was very good and the offer with half a bottle of wine was very good value. Will definitely be going back for our next ladies lunch.

Small restaurant but with very nice atmosphere! Was an incredible experience, the staff was super nice and all of them knew the menu, so if you have any doubt or question don't worry they gonna help you. Food experience: I love the chinaware and cutlery matching very well with the restaurant and then the food, is difficult to explain how good was if you didn't try. Jerusalem artichokes soup was amazing, very delicate and delicious. Pollock creamy and tender and everything was really good. And of course the desserts, we have a lemon tart and creamy cheese cake, are not enough words for describe them. We are really happy about this experience presentation food and staff was an amazing experience. Fine dining restaurant
Definitely we gonna come back

I brought my friend here for brunch to celebrate her birthday and I can not fault this place! It is in quite a strange location but when you do find it, its a hidden gem. The service was fantastic and I was never left with an empty glass, let alone a half empty glass. The food was delicious and the interiors were very classic and clean. I can not boost this place up anymore. I was also given a complementary birthday dish with truffles and chocolates which was a nice touch. I will definitely come here again without a doubt

Thoroughly enjoyable evening from start to finish and GBR. We began with cocktails at the bar. The mixologist was a delight - friendly, knowledgeable and nothing too much trouble.
Superb meal from a varied and well balanced menu. Each menu options was available either as a starter or main course. Great idea! Keeps it simple and allows you to try more than one which is useful if (like us after tonight's experience) you aim to go back.
Good wine list - not desperately expensive at the bottom end and some excellent offerings if you want to splash out a bit more.
Bravo !

Food quality excellent. Nice quiet discreet place for a business lunch. Service was slow and a little clumsy, not what you'd expect at a place like this - hopefully was a one off bad day. I'd return to give it another go another time given the strength of the food.

Impeccable service and stunning location, invited friends over to this place to share a dinner that from internet looked cosy and convenient.
Food was very good and well presented and we ordered a nice bottle of wine too, but we ended up spending 50 £ each which I wasn't expecting. So, no complaints, just a pricey place! Visit it if you can afford it ;)

Got there early (at 5pm) and the place was quiet. Got busier towards 7ish but it made for a great place to have a catch up and eat some nice food. The service was excellent - incredibly attentive.

The food was good! Not a mind-blowing culinary experience but it was very good - tasty and well made. No complaints from either of us. We would recommend it to others.

Tip: We booked 2 for 1, but they also showed us the set menu and we changed our minds, thinking it presented better value for money.

Stopped in at the last minute for lunch with a sassy 3 year old. Service was fabulous and they were great with the little one. Food quality and quantity perfect; a little pricey but given the elegant ambiance and outstanding service overall would say a great value.
