My wife and I frequent the restaurant and have always enjoyed it, so I decided to take an old friend and a possible business partner. Did not disappoint. Highly recommended.

Great food and service. Taster menu excellent. Each course was very tasty and beautifully presented. We were also able to change a couple of the courses to suit our dietary requirements.

We had the tasting menu which was delicious and at £45 excellent value, six courses but each dish was small and light so we didn't feel stuffed by the end.
This is a great place for foodies who like sharing a range of small plates with fresh, seasonal ingredients.

As I work nearby, Picture feels like my neighbourhood restaurant - it really is that ‘little place round the corner’ which gives you a warm welcome. There’s a great atmosphere and service, the food is exceptional. For central London, the prices and portions are reasonable. It feels intimate - the music really is part of the ambience, and not something you have to shout over. Highly recommended.

My first ever review....this has to be one of the most underrated and best value restaurants in London. The food is all fresh seasonal produce prepared simply letting the combination of flavours shine through. We've been several times now since it opened and....unheard of in London....the lovely staff remember us. There is always a bit of friendly banter that goes down well. The only advice I've had for them is the prices are too cheap!

Wonderful food. We had the autumn tasting menu. All of the dishes were delicious, especially the soup, the pork and the beef dishes and the chocolate mousse and milk jam dessert. A restaurant we will return to.

Really delicious lunch, I like be the menu style to allow me to try 3 very different and equally delicious dishes - please try the pork, that was my favourite! Service was efficient, not as friendly as I personally like but that's just my preference and it certainly wasn't unfriendly. We would return.

Had a pleasant evening - popped in for a selection of small plates on this occasion, as was pushed for time. Roast lamb, fillet steak, pea veloute - smaller portions but rich flavours - you think you're going to leave hungry, but feel sated. Service is efficient and friendly without being invasive . Prices are in keeping with other restaurants in the area.

We'll be back for the tasting menu next time

We had a terrific meal at Picture this week, an old friend was in from out of town and the bar was the perfect place to catch up and enjoy the very creative food. The tasting menu was tempting but had a few things I wasn't into so we went a la carte and didn't regret it. The wine list was manageable, reasonable and interesting, there was a wine on the list that I'd seen priced at £20 more at another restaurant just the other day. The bartender was new but helpful (and very friendly) nonetheless and the rest of the staff knew the food in depth. A great find.

Unfortunately our open table booking was not registered with the restaurant . As I had the print outs this was not a problem and Laura at reception made us most welcome and this continued throughout the meal . The idea of choosing different and varied courses excellent and the plates were of a decent size. This meant I could have 3 savoury dishes and my friend savoury & sweet. Very good vegetarian choices. The offer was excellent value . Service and food of a high standard. Well worth a visit.

The vegan options for one of our party were poor - she was literally served a plate of broccoli and there wasn't much effort made to help come to a solution.
The waitress also announced we'd booked a dining offer - which we weren't aware we had when we'd booked via Opentable - but at the same time hads we knowingly booked an offer, it's really unprofessional to announce this as guests may not be aware that the host has organised a deal. This could cause embarrassment. Overall it wasn't a very professional performance from the front of house staff, or the chefs. The food was nice but the rest needs work

A very neutral experience - nothing was wrong, but nothing was outstanding either. We didn't have the tasting menu, which may have worked harder, a la Carte was hit and miss.
