The beef is to die for. The côte de beouf was out of this world. Though with cocktails and wine it came be quite expensive.

Excellent meal.

Was my birthday lunch and I was treated to a great meal and brilliant service.

Covid restrictions meant that there were fewer patrons than usual but this simply meant we had almost the whole back section of the ground floor to ourselves. Felt very reassured with all the adaptations in place for the current situation.

Bottomless champagne brunch was brilliant as was the service. Just a shame the restaurant was half empty due to COVID-19!!

It’s a Sunday - it’s covid, it is not crazy busy - the service really really should be sharper than this - the food I was good , but having the meal brought up in incomplete meals - and very slowly too simply isn’t good enough at any price point

Fab food and excellent service. One of our steaks came over cooked but it was remedied straight away and complimentary drinks to apologise.

Expensive but worth every penny. Absolutely first class from start to finish and one of the best steak meals we have ever had. As good as any of the steakhouses I've been to in the USA. Looking forward to our next trip already!

A good adult friendly environment, where grown ups can enjoy the food, wine and conversation. The waiter, Sebastian was engaging and entertaining. Would definitely go. The last time I dined there was in 2012 - it is a pity it took me so long to go back!

Great food!! Excellent quality steaks, appetisers and side dishes. Tasty cheesecake but worse ever chocolate brownie (hard as rock, tasted like cake quickly warmed after stored in freezer).

I mentioned it to my waitress and she kindly deducted it from my bill.

Such a high quality restaurant shouldn’t be let down by their desserts station.

It was the first time in this restaurant and it was great experience. However the table next to us for birthday a small attention and in our booking notes was a birthday too and we didn’t receive the same ‘attention’. This is the only downside as the rest, including the service and the food quality has been great.

We enjoyed our meal here, slight hiccup when the meat arrived overcooked so was sent back and then we were pushed to finish it in time when it did arrive due to the 10pm curfew. However, the service was superb and the quality of the food could not be faulted. The staff were most helpful and apologetic and this would not deter us from booking again in fact I am about to rebook as this is clearly what I call a "proper restaurant" who know exactly how things should be and have no issue in putting things right if need be. Very professional staff so hands up to them they won us over! Can't wait to go back.
