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.

Great service and ambience. Portions were a bit small though. I know the fashionable way to eat these days is all about flavour and texture combinations (which were good) but I don’t want to spend £40 on dinner and leave still feeling hungry.

I am a regular here. Every time, it is superb. This time was no different. Both the hake starter and sea bass main course were superb. My wife enjoyed the pork very much. Highly recommended.

First class restaurant, great food, great atmosphere and great staff. If you go as a couple I recommend sitting at the bar rather than at a table.

Great character and atmosphere to the place and being seated at the counter didn’t detract from the overall experience at all.
The food was fantastic and generously portioned too.
The only down side was the volume of a patron was slightly loud, and by the end of our visit we were all very aware of what he was ordering over the phone! (Not No. 97’s fault of course).

Really enjoyed the meals. This was our second visit.
We have been to many top fine dining restaurants and 97 rates really high.
The only negative was the desert, the doughnut was tough and tasteless.
Really recommend the food and cocktails!

Fantastic standard of food at a good price. We haven't been for a while but decided to take some friends from out of town. It was as good as we remembered. Loved all my food - hake with Iberico ham, the beef and the apple doughnut dessert. This place deserves to do well. Great friendly service both upstairs and downstairs at the gin bar.

Fantastic lunch and don't know why its taken me so long to visit - I live locally. All five of us loved everything - the place, the service, the food. Quality, Quality, Quality! Its definitely a place we'll be visiting again. The breads, truffle butter and complimentary sparkling water were nice touches to a great lunch - only wish we'd had time to stay longer!

We arrived at 7.00pm for our table and were told the table was booked for a 2nd sitting at 9.00pm, which shouldn’t have been a problem
The waiter took 40 mins to take our order so getting a starter after 8.00pm, meant as our dessert arrive the receptionist came over plucked the bill down and said the next guests are here.
We rushed out dessert and left
So a nice meal for 4 rather spoilt and e left without coffees or finishing the wine.

It’s a lovely evening out to relax With friends over lovely food and lovely drink. My only real disappointment is the rushed feeling because of back to back bookings, service is Relaxed as it should be but then you’re rushed to free up your table. We were offered another table but it still felt too rushed.

We had our anniversary dinner there last year and this. It is an outstanding restaurant with a difference that makes it special. The food including the in between course nibbles is brilliant. Our waitress was so friendly and yet not intrusive. The veggie option(s) were delicious.
