Very low quality fish, was served the thinner part of a turbot filet.
Very low quality freshness, frozen turbot.
Very low quality cooking, overcooked turbot.
You could eat better on a motorway station.
Shame as the place looks nice, but clearly they don't have the mean or access to the right food quality that their menu prices suggest.
Amazing setting, delightfully creative food, warm and attentive service
The food at Serge et le Phoc is highly sophisticated but not over-complicated. The value offered by the set lunch is outstanding. On the day we went the Evening Standard Magazine published a pretty unflattering review (2 stars out of 5) and I couldn't agree with their critic at all. Mind you she spent a fortune on the a la carte menu and I didn't!
The slightly bizarre feature is that there doesn't seem to be any way of knowing that you have arrived at the Mandrake, apart from a man stationed outside who tells you to proceed through an unlit entrance-way. Inside the décor is tasteful and in places very innovative.
Excellent flavour combinations from an intriguing menu. The service was a bit awkward but well-meaning and very friendly. Good set menu options and a nice ambience. Not as busy as we'd expected considering it is newly opened. Definitely worth a visit...
We arrived at the Mandrake late on a dark evening and the entrance was very dark.
I thought it was for Halloween but the doorman said it was always like that.
The Bar area and the whole feel of the hotel is very original but the choices of gins and drinks in general was exceptional.
The food and service is of a very high quality, although my wife did not enjoy her fish very much (foam all around it), my Pidgeon was lovely and the cabbage and broccoli superb.
A very different vibe to this restaurant but a very enjoyable evening.
I wasn't sure what to expect as hadn't read many reviews, but absolutely loved it. I could eat the dacquoise every day although I wound probably die from obesity. The staff were also so lovely. It was a shame the main bar was closed for a private party but would definitely come again.
Beautiful restaurant with really attentive and friendly staff. We had a wonderful time!
The hotel looks like a very high class setting for an affair, but the restaurant within is discreet and producing very classy modern European cooking. Excellent value lunch menu - two courses £22, three for £27 - and some seriously impressive dishes. Well worth a visit, one of the best value five star meals I have had in London.
Very nice hotel especially the main bar & downstairs bathroom area. The restaurant was busy. Food was nice especially the octopus starter, pigeon main & chocolate dessert. Service needs improving although staff were very friendly. Long waits for orders to be taken, dessert menu to be offered & bill payment. Cocktails were forgotten & brought after starters. Hopefully teething problems that will be ironed out. Will be back.
The place is amazing.
The staff was kind but a little wait for the food.
Food is good but portion can be improve.
I loved it. The service was impeccable and the food was out of this world. Seriously accomplished stuff.
It was Sunday lunch and the restaurant was a little quiet, but the food, decor and service were excellent. All staff members were very polite and friendly and happy to show off their beautiful hotel. We will definitely be back and hopefully next time it will be a little busier!
Mouthwatering food in an elegantly set dining room. Up to the (impossibly high) standards of their Hong Kong restaurant.
outstanding food and service.really recommended if you are into foodies .great experience.
