Food was quite good but my rib eye steak was thin and a little tough. Service was quick and efficient. Cocktails were first rate.

I went with friends and I had been before and this time the meat was cold and tough and it was very disappointing. Maybe not same chef as usual. I didn't feel like returning the food but I should have done + felt bad as I had told my friends the meat was very good. not on this occasion.

Excellent from the moment you walk in, the staff was knowledgeable, welcoming, very attentive to detail and customer service. It was a pleasure to not only be served by such a great group, only to realize the chefs had produced the balance in a quality meal. I asked for a dipping sauce for my meat, what was produced hands down was the best sauce I’ve tasted. I hope to return again...... AMAZING!!!!!

The food is exquisite. Flavours are strong but not overpowering. Always cooked to perfection and generous helpings. Staff are always friendly and quick to respond. Facilities are clean and although environs may feel crowded, which also means noise levels are higher, we visited on a Monday evening so it was perfect for meeting up with an old and dear friend.

Fantastic food , all three courses was outstanding and very tasty

The decor and atmosphere was lovely

Service wise was slightly less so , we did have to ask for the pre theatre menu , and the service towards the end of the meal became slower but all in all a great experience

The price of the pre theatre menu is great! you can get a 2 courses meal at 15gbp, but the roast beef i have ordered was too dry and a bit overcooked. but my friend's lamb belly was good.

It's a good place to eat before watching Hamilton.

They were understaffed on the night I dined. Despite that fact, they hustled but there were lapses in service. A diner unfamiliar with the hospitality industry might have confused it with rudeness. Would recommend.

Went on a Sunday when the menu changes, so we couldn't order certain things.
I asked for medium rare flank steak, but it was above medium, so a shame. Staff very attentive without being intrusive, and great to find another restaurant serving caraffes!

Enjoyed the ambiance and the food. If you are looking for a good pretreated meal, that isn’t outrageously expensive in London you have found your place. Young trendy crowd with the older folk sitting away from the bar. Minutes away from Victoria theater.

This was my second time eating here, Sunday roast both times.

The first time was absolutely amazing. This time didn’t live up to that. The beef roast was over cooked, the Yorkies underwhelming, and the roasties mushy all around (not crispy on the outside).

Pre-theatre dinner. We had to send our sides back because they were cold and our dinner was also not hot but we didn’t want to send steak back in case it was ruined! But the staff were very helpful and brought us more sides and we just ate the rest anyway! Overall it was delicious, 2 for 1 cocktails and the atmosphere was great. We’ll definitely be back.

We had a good pre theatre meal. It would have been better if the waitress had explained what came with our main course. We ordered potatoes only to discover they were already included in our meal. She should have told us this. Also we had to grab someone’s attention to order wine and to ask what dessert special was. A good meal but experience could have been better

The service was poor overall, we had to wait 30 mins for simple food to be delivered and I had to ask several times for cutlery, drinks and finally the bill.

For a quick lunch time break this really is not suitable, it probably more focus on the tourist trade than city works or its neighbour Mayfair & Chelsea.

Only in terms of value for money but not in terms of atmosphere. It was far too noisy with the tables located too close together and the air conditioning seemed non-existent. A quite uncomfortable eating experience.

We ordered rib-eye steak and flank steak. Good but not outstanding. Considering the price, it should be considered good value for money.

Atmosphere is lively and noisy. Great to have a happy mood but not too good if your are looking for an romantic dinner.

Fantastic food. The dinner for two option coupled with one salad and one side was enough food for two adults and one nine year old child, with some to spare. The service was excellent, even though it was busy, and the place welcomed our nine year old, though I wouldn’t call it a “kid friendly” place. Decent for kids for a pre theater dinner, but I wouldn’t take them there for a late dinner.

I highly recommend reservations. We made an early reservation at 1745 to make sure we made a 1930 show, and the place filled up quickly around 1800. My only negative critique is that the restaurant was exceedingly warm. Finally, don’t skip the desert! The Apple crumble is fantastic.

We did have problems with the meat being overcooked, but the management were very obliging and did everything they could to put it right. Service was very good from the young ladies, very attentive and concerned that we were not happy the way the meat was cooked. The 'real gravy' isnt really as it was very thin and initially arrived luke warm, but came back piping hot but still very thin .
The air conditioning did not seem to be working as it was very hot inside, and we moved outside as soon as we had eaten.
Not much variety on cocktails or types of Gin, but its located in a very buzzing area which is conveniently near to Victoria train station.
Overall I have awarded a 4 star, but I think they could easily get a 5 star if the chef ensures he doesn't overcook the meat, as it was very tasty.
We will definitely give it another try.

Lively venue near Victoria Station. Have been there several times. Always find the main dishes good value and tasty - but the desserts are a bit of a disappointment. Good deal with 2 cocktails for £12 before 7pm - nice idea but why should they have to be 2 the same?? Noise level rises and becomes quite difficult to hold a conversation across the table.
