Really enjoyable food and wine (well matched by the sommelier). The food was at least as good as that in much more expensive places serving equivalent tasting menus. Ambience spoiled slightly by very loud table nearby.

We went for our 25th wedding anniversary and upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and a card on the table wishing us a happy anniversary from the whole staff. We had the wine pairing with the 8 course meal and each course, and wine, was explained to us throughout the evening with polite conversation with the staff throughout. We felt relaxed and at ease whilst enjoying a delicious meal and some surprising wines, which we would never of considered before this evening, but will now certainly be seeking out, especially the "NV Tannat "Alcyone"" which will be on the Xmas table with the Xmas pudding!
We were not rushed at anytime and the courses came at a steady and relaxed pace, so that we could enjoy them without ever getting "overwhelmed" and had time to enjoy the wine.
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and would recommend it to others.

We went for my son's birthday. Had a drink at the bar first then headed into the restaurant. We loved the decor - feels like you might be on Orient Express! The service was excellent and the food was outstanding, with the lobster being our favourite dish and the kentish strawberry desert was to die for.

Highly recommended.

I’ve eaten out in London a fair bit over the last few years and this was one of the finest and most enjoyable dining experiences I’ve had. The food was incredible, mixing flavours I didn’t know would even go together, it was like nothing I’ve eaten before! The incredible food, mixed with the impeccable service made this a night to remember! Could not recommend this restaurant enough!

The food was absolutely fantastic. The flavours and textures complemented each other. Each dish blew me away.
The service was perfect.
I was extremely impressed with it all.
It could have been slightly better with some background music as it was slightly quiet.

A brilliant restaurant. Service was great, wine was excellently paired and the 9 course tasting menu is fantastic - but there is a lot of food, so don't have a big lunch! Arrive early and have a drink in Manetta's bar.

Had the 7 course taster menu. Food was excellent with the chef using some unusual ingredient combinations. Staff happy to substitute one of the courses for another from the 9 course taster. Service was very very good. nothing too much trouble. We will definitely eat at Omer again.

Spectacular dining experience. We went for the nine-course meal to try everything on offer and, what can I say, it was all brilliant. Particular stand out dishes for me were the butter poached cod that just melted away in your mouth. What really suprised me was the quail with sweetcorn polenta, I've never tried that combo before and it was brilliant. I could go on but you have to try all of the course out for yourself. The chocolate dessert was simply the best (not one of the best, the best) chocolate dessert I have ever had in my life, I'm still thinking about it a week late when I have some chocolate.

Also this place does something I love, which is as much bread and butter as you like, you sometimes don't get this and love having bread thoughout a meal, I'm there to feast.

The service is what you'd expect from a Michelin star place - perfect. Napkins get magically folded, crumbs are disappeared. The matradee was wonderful to chat to and she made the experience so much fun.

Only downside if I had to find one is their range of none-alcoholic drink was a tad lacking, only three mocktails. The mocktails were excellent and exactly what you want from them, complex with lots of presentation. I would have liked some non-alcoholic wines to pick from or perhaps some more grown up mocktails. I had a bottle of NV Eins Zwei Zero Sparkling Riesling in a previous restaurant similar to this and that was superb.

Finally, a shout out to the decor - it was I think 1920s (maybe, I'm not sure) but so soft and full of character and histroy. It was refreshing to be somewhere that wasn't ultra-modern or just overly simple.

Absolutely incredible flavours, each course so delicate and a real flavour journey.
For me the dessert was simply the best I have ever tasted, it was a warm chocolate slice of pure flavour and texture, complex and unforgettable.
The value for money is stunning and each wine we had was perfect.
Quick cocktail in the delightfully dark and discreet bar afterwards.
I will be back before it gets fully booked forever. Outstanding.

The 7 course taster menu was astonishing.
Beautifully presented and served.
Bursting with flavours.
And with amuse bouche and petit fours actually nine courses.

An incredible evening ! We had the 7 course menu with paired wines. Every course was fantastic and perfectly individual and complemented beautifully with the choice of wines. They were all incredible! We were looked after so well but the team and particularly Aga Josko the restaurant manager. Sofian and the team had created masterpieces and indulged us in a trip to the kitchen at the end to say thank you. A memorable night with friends and looking forward to returning again

We have been to the Ormer many times before. This week we went to experience the new lunch tasting menu - we weren't disappointed! We had the seven course menu and were delighted with the varied taste of the food. Coupled with the excellent service (they remembered us from our last pre-covid visit!), it was again the wonderful experience we have come to expect. A few points of note. Many of the portions are of a tasting size (i.e. not a plateful) but with the excellent bread we felt full at the end. There are two menus and you can chop and change between the two. We had the additional cheese course, this is large enough to share between two or three. Finally, traffic is currently light so we came in by car and parked (pre-booked) in one of the nearby parking establishments.
