We had the tasting menu for my daughter’s birthday celebration. The menu was amazing, the food was beautifully prepared and presented and the staff and service were amazing. We even got to meet Michael at the end of the meal! We will definitely be returning - as my daughter said if this is what birthdays are like she would like one every day!

The service was average, the food was OK

The manager was appallingly rude; one of the worst I’ve experienced. Absolutely shocking for any restaurant, never mind one priced toward the upper end at of the market.

I can see why the restaurant was barely half full. Avoid.

Went for a dinner (around 2000) on a Thursday night (June 27th) with my girlfriend. Only had starters and mains but the whole ordeal took us more than 2 hours. We had to wait very very long for everything (getting menus, someone to take our orders, for wine & food to arrive etc.). Even when we were paying (the restaurant was more or less empty by then) it took staff solid 10-15 minutes to show up with a card terminal. To me it's an indication of either gross incompetence or structural under-staffing (kitchen, waiters, bar etc.)

On a positive note, the food was really good but I cannot rate a place any more highly if it doesn't get simple service tablestakes right. A number of tables around us had the same issues (e.g. wine only arriving when people were already done w. their mains!). Not sure I'm coming back anytime soon

P.s. what also strikes me as surprising is the amount of effort the place puts into one-day-only menus (e.g. Cinco de Mayo, July 4th etc.). They always seems to be working on something special. However, I wonder if a higher priority should be getting the basics right first...

In a party of four eating three courses every dish was a success. Exemplary service. Pricey but not inappropriate for the performance delivered. Ordinary location but not claustrophobic.

Ordered tasting menu with wines, first time we got warm food and had to wait 5 minutes for wines. With deserts, wines were forgotten completely. One wrong dish also served. Food was ok, but as a tasting menu not really worth it - you are better off buying just one main course but 580 euro 6 course tasting dinner with matching wines for four persons, neither the service, nor the quality of the food lives at least up to our expectations.

5 people at £100 per head for the tasting menu. Absolutely disgusting, chewy scallops !! Not worth the money and will not return after many years of annually taking our client there.

Perfect place for a date, really warm and friendly service, it was a really beautiful building which was classy without being pretentious.
The gentleman that served us drinks was a proper host, felt very welcome. Great experience, little pricy for what you got though.

Unlike many of London's ubiquitous modern European restaurants, Michael Nadra's menu is refreshingly distinctive in both variety and taste.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food + service was very warm and welcoming.
Highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys great food in a nice setting - you'll feel you've had an evening out without any pretence or stuffiness :)

The restaurant is set in the lovely location. With not many people there it feels quiet and relaxing which I like. The service was good either, can't complain.
However, I found the menu choice to be very limited and the food simply bland. My main dish (seabass) was lacking flavour and didn't stand up to the price. The dessert was good but again nothing special. I found the restaurant to be very overpriced for the food quality and ambience they offer.

Valentine’s Day. Set menu had some terrific highs, but also some disappointing lows. The tuna sashimi was exceptional. The beef carpaccio also extremely well prepared, a real treat. But the welsh lamb was a disappointment. The meat was thinly sliced and tender but it had very little flavour. It was served with a fried cylinder that reminded me of cheap buffets. Fortunately, the passion fruit tart was very good and prepared to the perfect consistency. But I was left with an unpleasant burnt aftertaste which I am sure the chef had not intended. So all in all, this was sub par for a restaurant with a Michelin star.

As ever, we had an excellent meal. Since it was Valentine's Day there was a 4 course taster menu, proceeded by a glass of champagne. Each course was better than the next - beautifully presented and wonderful and interesting food!

The cooking is done by someone who knows what they are doing
Waiter charming but would not serve outside this is the punters choice not because it causes inconvenience to the staff
The delicious food would be helped by a fixed price lunch menu or bigger portions or both
