    My daughter and I booked Scoff and Banter for a pre-theatre dinner. The food and the Argentinian white wine were delicious and my daughter received a birthday treat too. Service was very good, maybe helped by the fact that the restaurant was having a quiet night! Beth particularly enjoyed the French onion soup and my Portobello mushroom wellington was very tasty. We both enjoyed everything and will be happy to return on another day in London.

    We were for Christmas lunch. Got a table next to the service way and asked for another one. We had to insist several times before we could change to a place next to the entrance. The room was chilly, no heating, cold winds whenever the door was opened. So, better come with woolly sweaters than in festive clothes! The service had his own ideas of how to care for their guests: we were asked for drinks before we were seated and had put off our coats. Immediately after that we got the first course, drinks came much later. The crispy duck was dry and burnt. Before we had finished with the first course they already brought the "dish cleaner" course. We had to ask to take time, make a break, as we felt rushed by them. Main courses were alright. We definitely will not come again!

    Amazing service, very friendly and attentive. We had ribeye and fillet steaks and both were cooked to perfection. Good sized and value for London.

    We booked on open table for the two course for £22 with a drink. When we arrived the host seemed very perplexed when we said we had a booking, and then showed us to a table. We were given menus and chose from them. Only when the bill came did we find that this was not the £22 menu but the main version. I guess our fault for not checking but it certainly cost us more than we were expecting. This being said absolutely everything was amazing! The food was delicious and the cocktails were perfection. Would highly recommend the mushroom wellington, it was worth the extra waiting time. The restaurant was really clean and fresh, beautiful place. Would definitely go again

    I had lunch at Scoff & Banter with 5 friends. The set menu was very good value. Despite the fact that the restaurant was virtually empty and there was a lot of staff, the service was haphazard. The first waitress placed the empty wine bottle in the cooler, instead of indicating it was empty and taking it away. Another waitress took away my friend's water glass before we had finished eating. If you have a lot of time, I would go back there for a decent reasonably-priced meal. Although very close to Tottenham Court Road station, it's in a quiet road.

    The food was good, though nothing special. But the service was incredibly slow, which was remarkable since we were one of the only tables with people in the restaurant. I think you can find better options in the neighborhood.

    Nothing wrong with this place. However, it is essentially the restaurant within one of the Radisson hotels. Atmosphere was pretty dead (we went at lunchtime), food was fine. The waiter was a nice guy and very polite

    Terrible service. Two meals were brought, the third not. No apology, no explanation. It seems clear they mistakenly gave the order to another table. But despite repeated queries, no information was given. Given it was only a duck salad we were waiting for - not something that needed to be cooked from scratch - the delay was unforgiveable. But the way it was managed was the real problem. Poor management, poor training. And also the service staff clearly have no clout in the kitchen, and weren't able to persuade the kitchen to prioritise. No adjustment to the bill. There are plenty of places to eat in the area. We won't be coming here again...

    I had the Milanese Chicken which was delicious. Succulent on the inside with an amazing panko crust. It was served with rosemary potatoes which I usually adore but unfortunately they were undercooked slightly hard and not browned at all. I asked for just the potatoes to be cooked a little bit more which they did as I continued to eat my meal. My daughter had steak which was also lovely and the sauce was delectable. When we booked online our booking stated 2 free desserts but we were so full we just shared the balck forest trifle which was beautifully presented and tasted devine. It was my daughter's birthday and at the end of the meal the waiter brought a little chocolate cake on a plate with Happy Birthday piped in chocolate. Absolutely delightful.

    Nice, spacious restaurant. We were looking for something where we could quickly eat only a main course and that turned out to be possible here. Food was delicious. Recommended.

    Food was very good, efficient and friendly service. We ate early so there wasn’t much atmosphere due to there not being many people around, but the room was very pleasant and clean.

    The menu design is much more interesting than the food. Bland international hotel fare. Beige hotel lobby vibe. Loud obtrusive music to hide the lack of patrons. Service was extremely attentive and very polite.

    We wanted to order from the Set Menu but were only given A La Carte menus. I asked for the Set Menus but none of the waiters knew they existed. They directed me to ask the manager behind the bar. Two set menus appeared. I asked for two more for the rest of the diners. One set menu appeared, the fourth was for group bookings which caused confusion when that diner tried to order from it! Our last course of slices of cheddar and stilton and biscuits at the end of the meal came with a fork and spoon...no knife! It was all a bit surreal but the atmosphere was nice and the staff were sweet. It was all just a bit strangely incompetent. The hotel toilets were very swish!

    Great place to meet and chat. Lovely service but they all took way too long to give us water. Very apologetic when they noticed. Burger was delicious. Lovely wine. Super location. Near the British Museum and just minutes from TCR.

    Food was good, level of service was excellent until they didn’t give us our drinks. They charged us & had to be told twice to remove it from the bill! Apart from that, overall experience was really good. Gave us a birthday cake for my boyfriends birthday for free - nice touch!

    I love this place and the cocktails. Both are good value and very tasty. The waiter could have been a little friendlier and warmer. The place is spotlessly clean.

    Lovely meal after a visit to a busy British Museum. Interesting menu with something for all tastes and service was fantastic, very attentive waitresses. Would definitely go back next time we're in the area.

    Lovely airy restaurant in a hotel - small menu, well executed with good vegetarian options too. Service was good, attentive but not too intrusive. My friend's birthday and they added thoughtful touches too. Would go back and try their afternoon tea, not too far from Oxford Street too so good location.

    Been here on several ocassions and would always highly recommend it, on this ocassion the service wasn't its usual excellent level. Felt very rushed as it was Valentine's day which was disappointing. Though in generally love this place and this one evening will not stop us coming again.
