This was a nice special occasion restaurant situated in an old London library with some of the books still on the shelves. The service was good and the food was as is expected in this type of restaurant. However the men's' room cleanliness was adequate but not up to a very high standard expected from this type of establishment and only one of the wash basins was working.

The food and service was great! It is a great place to have a work dinner. Hari the waiter was so lovely and explained the dishes really well!

They seemed to have invested a lot into students and getting young people into the industry which is awesome however can cause a little bit of a delay with the orders, however we were willing to wait.

I have been receiving raving comments all day today from my team explaining how they had such a wonderful night.

Thank you Cinnamon Club!

The celebration menu for September was excellent. The restaurant showed creativity in menu design [simpler dishes -hence 4 stars - but good portion control to produce a satisfying tasting menu/ feast], cooking [quality ingredients skilfully -cooked and artistically presented] and value for money [set price]. Everything we had come to expect from The Cinnamon Club was in evidence. Service was friendly, welcoming and skilful. We had a delightful lunch in every respect; for us it was very pleasurable return to an old favourite and a relief to see this good restaurant emerge unscathed from the recent difficulties of the lockdowns.

The staff were very attentive, despite waiting for 5 minutes to be shown to our table as the maitre de was on the phone. The food was exquisite as was the wine. We had salmon followed by salt marsh lamb the flavours and textures were perfect. With a bottle of wine, the bill was £147, which I thought was excessive

Celebration for our Danish niece's 18th birthday so a family gathering of 8 with Danish relatives we haven't seen since before Covid. The food, drink and service were all great but our table was disappointing given I'd booked over a month in advance. We were in a darkened sub area which was incredibly hot and tricky for us to chat as a group. It was still a lovely evening, just wish we'd been in the main room.

The waiter suggested that he would pick 4 starters and 4 main courses, creating almost a tasting menu for the 4 of us. His suggestions were a gastronomic delight washed down by Bengali gin and tonics- again his suggestion. Such outstanding service. Unfortunately we didn’t get his name. We are regular diners and this has reinforced our belief in the restaurant.

Food was different and really delicious. I had the salmon starter and the lamb main course and they were both great choices. We tasted each other’s dishes and the kingfish starter and chicken mains were also also delicious. The selection of tandoori breads was great as was the garlic and coriander naan although for 3 of us the assorted bread AND 2 garlic and coriander naans was too much. The waiter was great - gave us great advice and sorted out pistachio kulfi for me even though it was only on the tasting menu. He was also really friendly and engaged with us. We thought it was really good value considering the experience and the quality of food and service. It was actually not a special occasion but there was not space for family meal as an option.

The food was excellent as ever. However service was pretty slow and waited a long time for our drinks.
Despite telling them it was a treat for my wifes birthday they managed to forget this. Made more frustrating and obvious as the adjacent table was an anniversary and they got made a fuss of. As did another table celebrating a birthday.

This was our 1st visit to the Cinnamon Club.
How refreshing not to have overbearing music being played. Convivial atmosphere in the authentic surroundings of a former library. Nothing contrived here.
The food was delicious. I enjoyed the contemporary and lighter style of the dishes. The accompanying, recommended wines were beautiful.
The evening was slightly marred by slow and at times forgetful service. Our Amuse Bouche arrived at the same time as the Starters (and only after we had requested them). The Dessert Menu had also not been updated so that I didn’t receive the dessert that I ordered. This was a bit disappointing and unexpected in a restaurant of this calibre.
The restaurant amended the bill to reflect this.
I can’t give a simple yes or know as to whether I would recommend this restaurant. I probably would but with a little clarification.

Excellent food let down by exceptionally poor service. After being seated our table was ignored for 30 mins. In order to get service, we had to approach the reception desk. Not one member of waiting staff ever looked in our direction - they appear to be trained to ignore our table.

The tasting menu was a real treat, and the courses were well spaced.

We asked a passing member of staff for our bill at the end of the meal. When we realized we had waited a further 20 mins for the bill we approach the reception desk again - this was the only way to gain any attention.

When leaving we ask to leave a compliant, the staff were unable to provide any contact details - all in all the service was hugely disappointing.

First visit after lockdown. The ambience remains outstanding - a quiet dinner in a spacious library with good room between tables. The food overall was excellent though I was not entirely convinced that the fusion of east and west quite worked with the desserts. The wine list was comprehensive, including some Indian wines. The service was good but nothing exceptional. I think the staff appeared a little overworked and the usual warmth and smile was not quite there. The dinner was not cheap but we will return for that special occasion.

Very expensive Chardonnay ordered and served not only late half way through the starters but also not chilled and was warm
It was refused and left to chill which a significant reason we would not recommend your restaurant

Cinnamon Club is set in a wonderful old British library setting near Westminster Abbey. We had the early sitting as we had a show to go to. The food was wonderful and tasty, with good cocktails and wine. It was a bit quiet as it was the early seating but got more atmospheric later in the meal.

Just enjoyed the best ever dinner at the Cinnamon Club, as a customer since it opened 20 years ago. My guest and had the tasting menu and it was superb: faultless, elegant, modern cooking using the finest ingredients, with flair, subtlety and perfect balance - seriously, I loved every morsel! The staff were wonderful too - just the right amount of attentiveness, swift discreet service, with just enough description of each course to stimulate the appetite, leaving us to experience the treats for ourselves. Looking forward to returning soon....
PS Do try the wonderful selection of gins, and I recommend the spiced apricot Bellini - delicious!

It may be the post pandemic difficulty hospitality business is in, but it took 40mins to take the order and fix the shaky table, reminded of 3 times; starters came in - no drinks served, wrong bill at the end. You would expect venues like cinnamon club to care more for their reputation. Food (tasting menu) was OK, but too expensive for what it was. The place was quite busy, maybe a la carte option is better, but service would still be the same.
