Everything was great, Savoy standards, grat food, service, decor was amazing, I will definitely come back when the Restaurant is fully open.
Only thing is I just didn't expect it to be placed in front of the hotel...sort of..in the parking..

Dear AdrianaD, We very much enjoyed reading your review of Solas, Your compliments are amazing and will be shared with the team. We are also glad that you mentioned about the prominent position of the restaurant, on the grand and historic Savoy Court. Set well back from the road, under an art deco canopy, we thought this was just the spot. A bit of a surprise, but one that we are happy to hear you enjoyed.

The place was beautiful and service excellent. Food great but minimal portion sizes - trying to fill guests up with bread.

Also being chased out after an hour and a half (hour glass sitting on the table to remind you) makes it feel like a fast food outlet.

Pity a great place otherwise

Services was lovely, decor was cute but I would not return…not because it was freezing outside but the food was such a let down and overpriced. Oysters delicious the rest wouldn’t bother way overpriced and not good at all had lobster roll OMG if I was a chef I would be embarrassed to serve it and scallop ceviche bland and who decided to add passion fruit seeds (facepalm emoji)

The seafood and drinks are amazing, but at the usual Savoy price point, meaning very expensive, even in comparison to other places of similar level.

The service was outstanding and the team had done an amazing job at injecting the spirit of Savoy brilliance into the decor and the whole experience.

I only wish the weather was more cheerful on the day…

Food was not good. The chowder was a cream Bisque with a few clams. The oysters were drowned in a sauce, it should always be served on the side.The lobster roll was a tasteless joke. Should be so much better.

Lots of glamour. I love how they’ve pulled off a nice experience in what used to be a driveway. Servers were polished and courteous. Food was incredible. The only critique is that service was a bit slower than I’d expect for London. With a timed reservation- 1:30 minutes for two, the delay in getting drinks and food could mean skipping dessert.

A great idea - probably the best outside dining in London just now? Great service and the decor is terrific. With only one end open to the elements we felt fine on a windy day. I think it'd be a great idea to keep the outside seating - much better use of space than as a road.

Excellent food and lovely drinks . The lunch was overshadowed by regular reminders - from the start - that we only had the table for 90 mins. Having booked for a special occasion it was sad to feel rushed. We then had to refuse pudding offered with 12 mins to go. Should lunch at the savoy be rushed ???!! Lovely lunch but not a special event.
