No 97 is a little neighbourhood restaurant located on leafy Maple Road in Surbiton.

City meets country. In all the good ways. An easy mix of innovation and international cuisine with openness and rootsy warmth. It’s a natural extension of who we are – part city slicker, part bumpkin, with a vision that is guided by the seasons, our travels and our experiences.

No 97 is us. A husband and wife team, surrounded by a top bunch of people. Our concept is simple – contemporary dining in a relaxed environment. It’s food inspired by fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, paired with an eclectic selection of wines, gin and innovative cocktails.

One of out favourite restaurants and last night didn’t disappoint at all.

I really cannot think of anything negative at all. The whole experience was absolutely brilliant. Cannot recommend No. 97 highly enough.

Looking forward to coming back again.

We sat on the terrace out the back and it was lovely. The service was fantastic (thank you Deano!) and the food/drinks were delicious. The waiter even made us a drink that used to be on the menu. Looking forward to the next visit already!

A wonderful evening at #97, only the third time we’ve been here (and I live just local - my friend travels from Wales!) but always a great experience and always promising to come back. After starters of salmon and duck these were paired with appropriate wine and various bits in between, like a mackerel amuse bouche and some vermouth and bitters palate cleanser. Le pièce de la resistance was the dessert: my friend had the raspberry parfait and I had the white chocolate panna cotta which was just so divine, I was loving and savouring every little bite! And there was still a little something after: a passion fruit jelly and chocolate brownie. Along with the excellent service we had from Joe, who admitted he was new (but you still did a great job!) we will definitely be back again 😇😎🥰

Fine dining style food at very reasonable prices.
We had a lovely experience. The menu only offers 3 choices of every course which makes it easier to decide. The food is beautifully cooked with complex flavours. Sides are huge and there are amuse bouche and sweets afterwards. We had 2 courses for £34 each, sides and a bottle of Prosecco, felt almost too full for a desert and the bill came to £50 each including service.
Higly recommended and will visit again.

Feels like standards have slipped a little. Food very good, but service not as good as we’ve come to expect. Long waits to order etc very
Very limited menu choice. This seems to have shrunk over the years we’ve been coming. Hopefully just a blip.

Everything fine. Music a loud disco/club beat but maybe that's the place; hellish if you work there but manageable for one evening. Service and food really good.

Took three friends out for dinner to celebrate a Birthday that was missed during several lock downs.

The food was excellent - service at start was a little slow but the place was very busy - as always the food was top notch.

The tasting starter and mini cocktail a really nice touch as were the palate cleansers of frozen yoghurt and pomegranate seeds.

As always the staff are friendly and my friends really enjoyed the meal I suspect they may back.

Excellent, attentive service, without being too much.
Lovely choice of great food for each course and lovely extra touches- including complimentary still or sparkling water!
Lovely, vibrant atmosphere and a choice of places to sit - garden, outside, main restaurant or counter.

If you are somewhat looking for a fine dining restaurant willing to spend £50 or more per person for lunch this is the right place for you. Cocktails looked good but wine list wasn't satisfying at all. Food is decent for its price but I would not give a 5 star rating as I've had better. Staff were efficient but they did not smile at all. Not sure if I would willingly go back. Overall, Good!

We celebrated our anniversary and had a fantastic experience, with great food and amazing service. We even had a little ‘happy anniversary’ card on our table when we arrived and the same message written in chocolate on our dessert plates. Multiple little tasters are offered at the beginning and end of the meal, making it that much more special.
Only downsides were the tables were a bit too close together for comfort and the music was quite loud, making the noise level of the room in general pretty high, but overall a beautiful experience and a great way to celebrate.
