We ate here with a 50% off. Wouldn't have been able to justify paying full price but it is rather fancy. Very quiet - we had a table Monday Eve at 7ish and there were only a few other diners. Tried my first ever oyster here and enjoyed! Steak and fish were both also great as was the wine. Shared a dessert as we were too full but couldn't resist!

Found this newly launched restaurant on opentable. Had never seen it there before and when we walked in, you could tell it was newly renovated, the paint was still fresh. The restaurant was far from crowded, but that just meant more time with staff who were very attentive. The food was delightful. The steaks cooked to order, the mash potatoes were the best my wife had ever had, the roasted garlic delightful, and for dessert, so glad I saved room, the baked Alaska. Magnificent. For a starter I also had a pleasant soup, artichoke with apple. Definitely one we will recommend to others and likely will be returning to soon.

Took advantage of a half price deal on food (but then blew the savings on whisky!). Oysters were very good. I thought my fillet was a little small for the regular price of £35 but since I only paid half, I can't complain. My colleagues had a rack of lamb and a sirloin, which they both enjoyed. The wine list isn't extensive but it is good enough and not over priced. The service was friendly and attentive. All in all I would recommend this place as a good venue for a quiet meal and I will be back in future no doubt.

I had not heard of this restaurant before I saw it on Opentable and I am glad I found it, as the place is definitely one I would go back to. It is ideal for business meals because the food is good and served at a desirable pace, the service was just attentive enough and the ambiance is nice and it is not too loud in there.

We wanted to book for a Tuesday night. The latest table available was 6:30pm so we booked that, and bust a gut to get there so early after work. When we got there, the restaurant had only a couple of tables occupied so I don't know why a later table wasn't available. You get there and they take your coatbefore you go down to the restaurant. The ambience of the basement is nice - lots of light and mirrors so not dark and dingy as basements can be. Traditional British/French style. They seated the few tables they had apart so you had a lot of privacy which was nice though there were so few customers that I felt we had to try not to talk to loudly so as not to disturb other people as there was absolutely no background hubbub of conversation that you would normally have at a restaurant. There was some background music which was appropriate to the ambience. The service was very good. The menu and drinks menu was limited in quantity and variety - the wine list was the only drinks list and when I asked about soft drinks it was just standard fruit juices or mixers. They did happily provide tap water and sparkling though. For a steak restaurant, with a very limited menu, it was ridiculous that both the sirloin and rib eye were off the menu leaving only the cheapest or most expensive cuts of steak. Also the "mains" were not mains at all, you needed to add 2 sides to make a complete main course. One of us had the gnocchi main on its own and it was like a large starter - he was still starving after that. The food was very tasty however. As a bread fan, I thought the appetiser board of homemade breads was particularly good and came with 2 interesting tapenades. The garden salad however was just a few curly leaves and 3 or 4 thin slices of radish. So 4 of us had 2 courses with the necessary sides (and 1 had 3 courses) and with drinks and service it came to £30pp, that was with the 50% off food offer. So an OK price with the offer but definitely would not pay full price.

Good food and service. Based in the London Capital Club, it has the ambience of a classic old gentlemen's club. For some this would be a plus, but for us it lacked a bit in atmosphere. Very good value for money though, with the 50% off Opentable deal.

One of the best steak I ever had in my life. It's great value with the 50% off offers.
Everything was amazing apart from the dessert. As none of us consume alcohol, we found the vanilla ice-cream tasted extremely odd. I checked with waiter but was told that it's non-alcoholic. We sent it back and insist the chef to taste and eventually confirmed that it does taste alcohol and got them taken off the bill.

Service was attentive, steak was amazing, just a slight disappointment that some choice of cut already out at our 1800 dinner booking. and of cos the unfortunate odd tasting ice-cream.

tavern steak and oyster has been my first choice for quiet dining with quality service. The greatest part is it does 50% off with opentable on Friday 🤗

I came at the right season so their fin de Clair oysters were large, fresh and succulent.

I also like their coupling of roasted bone marrow with any steak (it gives the steak some extra lush)

I m disappointed with their olives starter to share, which were too salty, and their apple and quince crumble, which was totally underdone.

The current "celebrity chef" menu seems a little expensive, certainly compared to the previous menu , and especially if the celebrity is not there on the day you visit. Very competent food culled from a range of well known restaurants across London , which presumably enjoy the oversight of the same executive chef. Great attention from the staff who are trying really hard. Atmosphere somewhat lacking as the restaurant is not attracting enough of a lunchtime crowd. Perhaps it will become more popular. Will go back if only to try the dishes from the Ivy, which I haven`t eaten at the Ivy.

Really rather a posh experience with a coat check and hairspray in the loos! Great food, not huge portions so great for those watching their weight. Well presented dishes. Incredible value in glamourous old fashioned environs if you think you could pay similar money to sit in an echoey Pizza Express and be screamed at by kids. I'll return.

We went for the evening meal. There was very little steak available to order already at 7pm. The steak was requested rare but came medium/well done. The medium rare steak was similarly over cooked. We were not charged for either steak. At the start of the meal we had the draught Pilsner Urquell which had gone off. In both cases the staff were excellent. The deserts were good.

We used the 50% off offer, so it was good value, but overall I wasn't very impressed. Most of the steaks, one of the table plates and the daily special were not available, we were told they'd had a busy lunch service (we were there at 6pm). Service was very friendly and quick, which is should have been as the restaurant was almost empty. The food was good for the price we paid but I would not have been happy paying full price when there are so many other better steakhouses around.
