We were surprised that even after two attempts they could not cook a steak medium rare, but we were so hungry after being made to wait 30 mins for a table in spite of having a reservation with OpenTable, we didn't care. The soup took 25 mins to arrive and only after reminding them that we'd ordered starters and they didn't even come with one slice of bread -and we were not offered bread either. It was quite hard to get anyone's attention. There were a lot of problems in ordering our food, communication between the staff and the kitchen, but they were very busy, so perhaps we were unlucky. The head waiter did his best to remedy the problem with our main meal, but I didn't want to spend more of my time to address the other issues because I could tell that they knew that they were having a difficult day.
Food was pleasant enough, Salmon starter was tiny, fish cake lovely, pecan pie too chewy and difficult to cut with a spoon but again tasty.
Service was friendly but quite slow and with not many people in the restaurant I’m not really sure why.... Had to get people’s attention a number of times and the majority of staff were on breaks eating on the upper level from 4pm which didn’t help the very laid back service
Considerato che era Capodanno il giorno in cui siamo stati a cena, direi ottimo.
Due piccole note : verificare la coerenza degli ingredienti tra piatti indicati in menu e i piatti serviti e non accostare formaggi molto saporiti e stagionati
Food was not amazing
Came here for the Mrs Birthday, it is a good place, first time I had a Beef Wellington, the pastry seemed a little overdone even though the beef inside was good, one of the best gravy's also, my girlfriend really seemed to enjoy her steak. Only downside I would say is the slow service and getting someones attention. I had booked the 50% of mains via OpenTable which wasn't recognized, when I came in - I also tend to get embarrassed quite easy and felt down looked at when I asked for this (which was at the beginning, just to make sure we had the offer as I know places would dispute it after you order the food). Also it was my girlfriends birthday and I was trying to get the sparklers and happy birthday surprise arranged but when asking one of the waiters they said yes just order the desert and all we got was happy birthday written on the side of her plate when I clearly had asked for more. Overall okay, if you're just going for food then good, service not so much.
Food came out cold, steak was very small for what was considered a 1 to 2 person Porterhouse. When asked for the food to be sent back they just reheated the sides reheated (but still cold) and they were returnee later than they brought back the meat so everything wasn’t consumed at the same time. It wasn’t a great experience at all and I won’t be returning
Lunch was good but service could have been a little quicker - maybe worth asking if guests have a time frame for their visit.
Disappointed would be an understatement. My anniversary dinner at a restaurant that claims to be a steakhouse was terrible. How someone manages to undercook chips, mess up a Kir Royale, and serve a dry steak on a plate full of blood is beyond me. Getting 50% off the mains through Open Table still felt like I was overpaying for thus sub standard meal. Don't go! Hawksmoor or any other real steakhouse will be cheaper and infinitely better.
The food really was very poor. The steak was tasteless. Don't bother wasting your money.
good quality steaks. Not really good attention to client, so service was pretty bad. They didn't tell us that the price for the PorterHouse steak (55£ perfect for sharing) was instead 55£*2=111,00£. It didn't have that value for 24oz steak. Try other better
Dined on Friday 1st February. We had the Cornish Crab on a toasted crumpet, the crumpet was soggy at the bottom so not a great start. I had the Chicken Schnitzel for the main and it was served burnt, how it made it passed the pass I dont know. The Head Chef needs to be more attentive with the quality of the dishes.
Overall it was disappointing.
I met some friends from the north of England, they really enjoyed themselves and loved the food, would recommend.
I have eaten at this restaurant several times over the last year and have never been disappointed. The food and service are good and I would certainly recommend.
Very friendly staff. place nicely set out. food very nice. only thing service was a bit slow.
While the food and service was good, they have overcharged our group for their drink package (£220), when they havent gave us the price and our request.
Also they made it clear that service charge was mandatory.
However we enjoyed the food and the good service.
Poor meet and greet service upon entering the restaurant, slow or non existant bar service and poor selection of wine available.
Waited over an hour for the food to arrive even with the restaurant not being busy. Service was very slow.
Music too loud.
Wine (Malbec) was off, but waitress ha dled well and brought a second (good) bottle..
As far as steak houses go, this is only OK, nothing fantastic, only worth going with a discount voucher.
MPW restaurants never disappoint and this is no exception... I was a regular at Frankies in Chiswick and this looks like it will be too!
My partner bought an experience voucher from Virgin (I think) for £98 to treat me for my birthday (important detail, as you'll see later). Went there on my birthday (Friday, 31st August 2018)
1. Food was tasty
2. Service was excellent
3. Loved the cocktail, which was included
1. Asked for my steak to be rare to medium.. and stressed that this means more rare than medium. Got my steak and it was medium; no blood in sight though it was still tasty... but for a meal that cost a fortune and with the big name above the door and it being, supposedly, a specialty steak house - a pretty poor show.
2. the REALLY bad news:
(i) When my partner got the bill, they had deducted £49 for her (good), but only £10 and change for me, so they ripped us off there for about £39 (remember, the voucher cost £98, i.e. £49 x 2)
(ii) They calculated the 12.5% service charge before deducting the voucher amount (which was already less than it should have been!).
Finally, considering they are a steak house, you ought, on the experience voucher, be able to get a steak without paying extra. NOT SO here! You're OK if you want a tiny bit of rump steak, but EVERY other steak required at least a surcharge of about £15.
As a result, my partner ended up paying a total £161 for 2 people to have a decent meal, which we could have got elsewhere - at similar quality - for half the price - if this is what it means to eat at a Marco Pierre White restaurant, he's got it VERY wrong. I haven't told my partner all of this as she wanted to treat me and I don't want to take the shine off her generous gesture, but this was rip-off dining at its worst.
I would definitely not recommend this place to friends or family and will never return. A very poor show indeed.
This is a mixed review- the atmosphere was great and the staff attentive wthout being overly so. Great wine list. There were four of us and three of us chose sirloin and the other guest chose rump - the three sirloin were disappointing cuts, very fatty and to say we ordered medium rare, the meat was very tough. I’d give it another chance but not high on my list to be the first choice for a return visit.
Staff were inattentive and lacking customer service basics.
Food was not up to be quality of rival restaurants however the price was higher...
Food was great, and service was good. My only issue was the seating, it felt like you had a large leather blanket over your knees which was the under layer of the table cloth. It made it awkward to sit and relax
The food wasn't that great. Ridiculously overpriced.
Food was served in good time and was delicious. Mix up made with my order but resolved very quickly. The staff were very pleasant and engaging which goes a long way. Generally a very good experience.
Decent place to eat, food was above average. Sides aren't even worth ordering I got cream potatoes for £5 and it literally was a mouthful that was the only complaint.
We found the restaurant very customer friendly. The staff were very friendly and professional. The food was delicious It was commented on by someone in the party as to how you were made to feel you were the only one and treated with every consideration. The waiter just happened to see parcels for our birthdays and the desert came out decorated for the occasion. Well done
Great atmosphere for meeting friends / quiet conversation. Excellent service. My chicken was undercooked, but I was immediately given the option of having it cooked further or ordering something different, without any fuss or argument. The staff were suitably apologetic and polite about the issue. I would recommend the restaurant for its good food and great service.
Awful. Bad overpriced food. Poor service. Long wait. If you are thinking of going, don't.
Fabulous tender steak, perfectly seasoned, good size portions, perfect for a business lunch or dinner. Good location & friendly service. Thank you for a meal enjoyed by all 7 of us,
Visited on a Friday afternoon as part of wife's birthday weekend. Ultra attentive staff, pleasant atmosphere, unpretentious. Food was excellent although would have liked a wider choice of starters. We shared the Chateaubriand, which was cooked perfectly to our request and excellent quality. The desserts were stand out. Shared a bottle of inexpensive claret, although there is an extensive fine wine selection (assuming you've just won the lottery or want to impress a client). Prettyngood value based on the half priced mains deal. All round recommended.
Considering it was new years eve, the price was good. Food was indeed yummy! Will defo be back!
We went there for our work christmas diner, we were all happy for our food choice, the ambience was good, remarkably not noisy which was nice. Well located, close to the station.
Well worth a visit, great food and great service
Didnt quite live up to expectations. Ribeye was slightly overdone for medium rare, no chargrilled flavour. Fillet was good as were the sauces. Sides of fries excellent.
Really disappointed with the lunch service
Coffee arrive before desert
Colleague asked for toothpick and 20 minutes later had to ask again.
If it was busy I could understand
Didn’t offer to take coat on arrival.
Small things you don’t want to want to think about especially as it’s a quality expensive lunch.
It’s all about service in this competitive industry
The dishes were cooked and presented superbly, the waiter service and overall experience was 1st class.
I order a porterhouse steak, medium and it was presented to me medium rare. The steak was sliced so it was evident it was not medium yet it was served to me. Needles to say I brought it to the waiter’s attention...it then took another 10mins before the manager had to come over to remove and said he would ‘make me a new one ‘....which turned out to be the same one with a few of yen slices still towards the medium rare spectrum. The serving of creamed potatoes was about 2 tablespoons for £4.75...which I also brought to the waiter’s attention for him to address. It’s ridiculous that they would even think of giving that to a customer!! I had no problem with the waiter, he was very attentive and accommodating but the food took very long to prepare and with the experience i had it just left me annoyed so I won’t be returning.
