This could turn out to be a vibrant catalyst to lift the dreary Tower Hill area, from hackneyed barrow boys “beer and pint dives” to Asian fusion cuisine and fine dining

Not hugely impressed with weekday lunch. Much better experience at the French restaurant opposite. Food was ok nothing really stood out for me. I felt the wasabi prawns were a bit bland. Service was polite but not hugely attentive. Long wait for main course. Sharing cocktail was nice. Overpriced for what it is. Disappointed.

We had the Mei Ume tasting experience, bought on time out, and it was fantastic! Every course was delicious, and the portions were the perfect size to leave one sated but not uncomfortable at the end. The service was attentive and helpful without being obsequious, all round this was a fantastic lunch. would recommend.

Booked earlier in the day, on a recommendation from a colleague. The restaurant is beautiful and service was great, but the options for the set meal were a bit pedestrian, and the Lychee Martini is an acquired taste. The other cocktail we tried was phenomenal though. May be worth a try for a la Carte for a special occasion

We booked the Time Out tasting menu offer at £35 per head including a cocktail. The food was beautifully presented and of a very high standard but I would not have paid the full price of £99 per head especially as we didn't receive the full tasting menu but a modified version. Service was attentive and friendly and the restaurant itself is beautiful. Very unusual yuzu cocktail that we both loved!

Absolutely delicous Japanese and Chinese mix. Makis are so fresh and innovative (one was rolled wit specks of Parmigiano on top). The wine was also good and different from the usual choice. The other high point of Mei Ume is the decor, with its marvelous ceilings and architecture, in line with the rest of this somptuous 4 Seasons hotel on Trinity Square. I only put 3 stars for ambiance as we were one of only 2 tables that Wednesday evening of mid January. The architecture makes the ambiance, though - as well as the waiter, who was discreetly present to fill any of our needs. I recommend. Will certainly go again myself.

Why aren't more people going?! The January 2018 deal is excellent - £29 evening deal at a high class Pan Asian Restaurant in the beautiful and subtle Four Seasons Hotel at Tower Hill - I dare you to beat the beautiful building (exterior and interior), the ambience and the staff. The deal is only available if you are seated 6.30-7pm Mon-Sat and only lasts for a few more weeks. Try it! You'd be mad not to!

Great décor in the superb Four Seasons hotel. Pre-dinner cocktails in the Rotunda bar were expensive, but superb.
Food is of a very high standard and, having been to Japan and China, very authentic. Sushi/Sashimi looked and tasted very fresh and vibrant and the dim sum was some of the best we've had. The main courses on the tasting menu were lovely, but a bit safe. The matching wines/sake went very well.
The ambience and service were very welcoming, with the background music loud enough to drown out the next table, but not so loud you couldn't speak normally to each other.
Overall, this was an excellent eating experience and one I would recommend.

The music was too loud and the room too dark for my taste however my main comment was the price of the drinks. £15 for a single cocktail and £23 for a glass of champagne - way too much.
Food was pleasant but nothing special, so we won't be returning.

Hugely overrated! Most of the dishes were very bland in flavour, and the signature duck dish was highly disappointing. The service was also poor with the wine waiter very rudely, and continually, interrupting conversations to keep asking if we wanted another bottle of wine and then try to talk about the wine; this despite it being the same bottle each time and him being told each time to just keep bringing more wine without asking us (there was six of us!).
Another example of extremely poor service was that I told them, on at least four different occasions, that there must be no mushrooms on any of the dishes, yet they still served up noodles with loads of mushrooms in!
Definitely avoid this place

Wonderful food and excellent attentive service. Everything you would expect at the Four Seasons hotel. Portions are all for sharing and therefore be mindful how hungry you all are as our waitress was clearly trying to ramp up our bill for 7 people by encouraging us to order more food than we needed. Example being do you really need two whole Peking ducks (£85x2) for a table of 7 when also ordering a selection of appetizers/dim sum, sushi and another 7 main courses with rice and noodles to accompany. "The ducks are small" was her eastern European response. I can confirm they are certainly not and even a party of 8 would be left with seconds for all to share. Wine list good although at Four Seasons pricing. Desserts are interesting and worth exploring. With 4 bottles of wine (£50x4), a round of cocktails and enough food for everyone with a little left over, the bill including service was just over £1,200. Expensive but quality food, great service and hey, its the Four Seasons so what do you expect!

Was expecting excellence from this top class hotel. The restaurant was boiling hot which spoilt the whole experience. Also the service was unprofessional & amateur. I would not recommend this restaurant, although the food was good, but not outstanding. This needs a complete rethink if it is going to do justice to this beautiful hotel
