Both my starter and main course were extremely salty. The desert ‘s texture is horrible and smelled wired like cat food. Very disappointed with the food. However the stuff were all very nice!

Celebrating 2 family birthdays. The service was so good - waiter was engaging but not obtrusive. He helped make the experience a very good one. The food was excellent and well presented.

Nice lively place, excellent service, food was great, but as we got the set menu we didn't get lucky with our mains. They were not bad at all, just not our favorites and were unsure about them when ordering already, but not much of a choice, which you expect from set menu. It was a great value and the white onion soup starter was the best onion soup I have ever had.

We had to ask for the set menu - it was not given to us with the a la carte menu. We all had the Brandade of Cod - our fault for not knowing that it was salty cod made into a puree. A bit disappointing. Large party arrived midway through lunch who were very noise and we could not hear ourselves talk.

Covered outdoor seating is good with patio heater providing some comfort on a mild afternoon, Service was attentive. Excellent food was good value, but winelist started at £50 which meant a two bottle lunch for 4 became pretty expensive. probably what you would expect for Piccadilly area dining.

Only complaint was that it took multiple requests to my server for the food menu. And we had to ask about a drink order that did not come timely. But totally loved the atmosphere and will return.

Came for classic afternoon tea . Slightly disappointing this time and not up to usual standard . Only give 3 very small sandwiches . Advised of dietary preferences and although taken care of the waitress was initially unclear whether we could be catered for which we found surprising . For one item which I advised I could not eat no substitute was provided . Cakes were ok but nothing very exiting . Would not rush back .

Service was excellent. Food very good too, but main course portion a bit small - needed a side dish.

A little expensive to go on a regular basis, but worth it for a special ocassion.

Great experience. Nice atmosphere and buzz about the place.

We had pre dinner cocktails for a friends birthday.

Only minor criticism is that I had to go and get someone to take the order! Otherwise all good!

A great choice for a reunion lunch for seven. A pretty courtyard in the oasis of Ham Yard, good service at a very busy time, and fantastic food. The bill was a reasonable £70 each for (mostly) three courses and two bottles of wine. My friends had not been before and all really enjoyed it. And I'd rather like to live in the hotel, love the decor.

This is great place to go for drinks on a date, the ambience is wonderfully done. The prices are what you'd expect to find in such a lovely spot, but as much as we wanted to love the food, it just wasn't good enough for that price point. The duck had quite a bit of gristle to contend with, and the crab linguini while the best meal of the three, didn't have anything to liven it up from being just the sum of its parts.

I don't feel they were miles off getting the total package right, and I hope to one day return and eat my words on the food front!

We were well looked after and the welcome and service were very warm. Understanding when we were delayed for our table because we helped someone who was unwell at Piccadilly station. Never felt rushed, even though we were the last in the restaurant!
