    Food was really good, let down by service. We booked via opentable with the evening standard menu and when we arrived we were told we were too early for the kitchen although that was our booking slot as offered on the Opentable app. Within 15 mins the waiter came back to take our order so the waitress simply didn’t need to make a fuss about the time and could have killed 15 mins with initial drinks order and issuing the menu to us. The waiter maurizio was great and looked after us throughout the evening but the lady who seemed to be running the show was less than hospitable. After the initial telling off for being too early, she then told us that because we were ordering from the Evening Standard menu we couldn’t sit outside. There was no one else in the whole restaurant. After our included glass of rose, we asked for a £30 bottle of Rose from the wine list. The lady waitress came over saying the rose we wanted was £50 and started to open it. When challenged the bottle we actually asked for arrived and was offered free, mainly because of our dissatisfaction with the experience so far. Maurizio our waiter was a complete gentleman and looked after us impeccably. The overall experience was let down by the lady manager. There was no one else in the restaurant, so should they not have been looking after the customers they did have?!? Such a shame as the food was tasty. The experience is a stark contrast to the Michelin star restaurant upstairs!

    We were literally the only 2 people in the restaurant. I was told I couldn't have a vodka martini because there was no bartender at the very large and well stocked bar. We both ordered burgers and when asked for medium rare were told they could only be well done. One arrive medium rare and one arrived well done. Wasn't worth the time or money.

    Of the six main courses on the menu by 1:30pm three had run out. Given the table was pre-booked weeks ago and was not a walk-in booking this is not acceptable.

    The food was very good - although quite expensive. The advertised menu of weekend brunch on the website was not available it seems. And service was very slow - we sat there for quarter of an hour with no menus, drinks took ages to arrive etc.

    This restaurant is clean and comfortable low lit. The staff where efficient but not engaged. They we all from abroad The menu was limited but adequate not cheap alcohol was fair priced the food was well presented and cooked but and was adequate for the price we paid. It was not special so difficult to say it was good value the price is similar to other of this type where the site has no particular draw like a veiw. This means I feel the food needs to deliver a bit more to compete with other places that have something like a veiw particularly if they want repeat visits. I think as part of the hotel it's in it sits as a convenient eating place abd is the same for non residents so a bit bland

    Hotel restaurant which, particularly given the quality of the steaks and cooking, is poor value for money. My steak was £42 without chips etc and was grainy and burnt. The service was friendly and helpful though.

    We should have known it wouldn’t be good when we arrived at 845 on a Friday night and it was empty. The service was ok, but steaks and lobster were cold, overcooked and must have been in the freezer since before pandemic. The fries were like chewing old pencils. Never again.

    Not happy they do not charges accurately and do not acknowledge a mistake - A mackerel pate starter came without the sourdough toast and took ages and two requested to different servers until it was provided and then at then end when given the bill it was shown as an additional charge for the toast - not readily amended and it was only after I insisted they brought me the menu and I could show them that on the menu it was clear it was included and part of the course that they final removed it form the bill - will not be going back there agin

    Took my 12 year old son there for for breakfast for a treat. I eat here a lot during the week with clients and food and atmosphere has always been good, hence going here a lot. My son had the fruit salad for breakfast. £7 for a few strawberries, blueberries and blackberries was very poor. It wasn’t a kids portion but that is what he was served. Very disappointing.

    For a restaurant suffering the restrictions currently imposed, one might be forgiven for expecting a heightened level of service and attention to detail. Sadly, quite the opposite. Waiting at the door for a long while whilst watching people doing nothing significant - obviously serving comes first but they were just pootling about. Then no-one took our breakfast order. Sat like lemons for ages, eventually flagged someone down. They didn't have salmon for the salmon and scrambled eggs so asked for it on toast. Were constantly having to flag people down for any kind of service, more coffee, water had to be asked for... Toast arrived with no butter or question of butter being preferred, my guests benedict looked decidedly sad for itself as if it had been on the pass for a while, the scrambled eggs themselves were decidedly average. Overall...a very poor experience - in marked contrast to the Ivy, where they are attentive, friendly, serve good food and create a welcoming environment. I would heavily recommend looking elsewhere than South Place Chop House.

Service excellent the venue emptied around late afternoon and then some evening clients arrived but by 20:00 hours the restaurant had emptied again but given the current pandemic overall it was a good atmosphere.

    I got two tinny fish cakes with a bit of green salad on the side, that’s for £19. I had to ask twice if that was a starter or main course. Even by London standards that’s a rip off!

    I thought the restaurant's decor and atmosphere was really lovely. The table was a good size for the party of 5 we had. The menu had some lovely options, however I felt that the size of the dishes we ordered varied greatly, although this wasn't reflected in the price. For example, the chicken pie was quite small at £18, and the pork dish was enormous and only a couple of pounds more expensive. I also thought the service was quite slow, especially considering we arrived quite early at 12.15pm. Overall, it's a convenient option for a business lunch.
