Salon is a relaxed and informal restaurant that specialises in an ever-changing seasonal Set Menu, with all the finesse and attention to detail of fine dining, but without any of the fuss.

Our weekend brunches (Saturday & Sunday daytime) are legendary, with props in The Guardian, Time Out and Harpers Bazaar to name just a few!

We have a bar space downstairs where we serve cocktails, natural wines, beers and snacks.

Upstairs in our Dining Room we offer a 4-course Set Menu and a 7-course Extended Menu, please specify on your booking if you would like the Extended Menu.

We had a lovely diner and the food was delicious. The only thing was the time between each course. Within 1 hour we were done eating and finist. The kitchen wanted to close and clean you could see that from the table. But the food was perfect but to expensive to eat in one hour.

Food was again outstanding, and prepared to perfection.
They have a young team of dedicated and lovely waiters there who make you feel at home. These guys know their stuff. Wine selection is also outstanding & fairly priced. I often go to their wine bar & have to go back to the restaurant more often!

My favourite brunch place in London. Definitely needs a second restaurant. The hash browns and sourdough toast with sweet potato hummus are to die for.

The food, service and atmosphere were great, the only downside is that for their Saturday brunch / lunch you only get a table for one hour. This might make sense if you are ordering one brunch dish each but we ordered lunch items with snacks and desserts and I think they should allow longer for this.

A really perfect evening, only comment that 2 of the courses on the extended menu were fairly similar, in that they were both in a butter sauce, which although delicious would have liked to mix it up a little more! Other than that everything was perfect!

The food served was not as amazing as the reviews suggest. The sriracha benedict was very salty, and there was a lot of bread versus actual condiments. In addition, I was surprised to be served only one poached egg with two slices of bread. For the price, the portion size felt measly. At every other dining experience where I've ordered an eggs benedict, I've been served two eggs - one on each slide of bread.

Food was nice. Really irked by the fact you have to pay extra for the meat option for your main course, kind of defeats the point of a set/tasting menu. Wine/cocktails were good and the staff were all really friendly.

Had to wait a while for our table & weren’t offered a drinks menu during that time but think they were just very busy on a Saturday morning as have been to Salon previously and haven’t had this issue.
Menu was great, although missing the hash dish I have previously loved!
The food we did order was delicious with great coffee and came in good time once we had ordered.
Love it here, would always recommend!

I genuinely wanted to love Salon, and there were aspects of the meal I really enjoyed. The mussel starter was incredible as was the dessert course, really outstanding. The flavours were interesting and unusual. For me, the main (partridge) was a bit odd, and my partner felt the same. It was unusual and I give marks for that, but it didn’t leave me with a “this is incredible” taste on my palette, more one of “this is good, and interesting.” It’s quite possible my palette is not elegant or refined enough to have enjoyed the main, but hey, that’s how I felt!

All in all we loved the atmosphere, intimate feel, music, and service. The meal was interesting and at times really hit the mark, at times for us it did not. A memorable meal overall.

We had been recommended Salon by friends but sadly left disappointed. The food just wasn’t up to scratch. Skate in buttermilk was bland, a potato risotto (why ‘risotto’?) was just diced spud in stock and the main was a small piece of underseasoned pumpkin. Venison, for a hefty £6 surcharge, was good, as was the apple pudding and the chocolates, but we left a little hungry and convinced it’s just not as clever as it thinks it is...

Having recently eaten at Levan, we were keen to try this sister restaurant. We found it to be extremely crowded so much so that the waiting staff knocked into my husband upwards of 10 times whilst trying to serve tables around us which was comical but also intensely annoying. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable but the food just missed a beat. The salmon starter was overly fishy, the kale tempura was over cooked and left us feeling full and a bit greasy before we’d even eaten anything else. However they redeemed themselves with a perfectly balanced apple terrine dessert that was the most delicious texture and the perfect amount of sweet, salty, soft and crunchiness. Sadly though we won’t be rushing back.
