An excellent lunch menu, beautifully cooked and presented. Excellent staff and and pleasant dining room
A really stunning tasting menu with a myriad of flavours and everything perfectly cooked. Charming, obliging and knowledgeable staff. We're not into seafood so they were happy to swap the Octopus for the Mushroom Tart, which was delicious. The total bill for two with pre-dinner drinks, tasting menu with wine came to £330 including service, which is more than I've ever paid for a meal but it really was special - and they gave us little anniversary cakes as an extra touch, which was nice.
Awful service. Unsurprisingly empty. Don’t go.
On arrival we discovered this is the hotel restaurant for the Sofitel and it has the attributes you would expect of a restaurant set up to serve a major chain hotel. Our server was fantastic, and the food was expertly prepared and presented, but the menu was limited and unimaginative in an unimaginative space. We enjoyed it and have no complaints, but the overall experience unfortunately did not match the price.
Fantastic lunch menu. Size gives you absolute comfort that everything will be perfectly cooked.
Great attentive service
Egg Custard Tart .... the best on this planet
I’m not usually a Vegetarian but I was this night. The food was just okay for us herbivores, there were very few options (counting the cheese platter). There could have been something more substantial and interesting as the meat mains (eg. lamb with the honey). Was also disappointed to have booked a table well in advance and not be informed that it was a high seating arrangement - couldn’t move as was told no tables were available but I saw an empty table of 4 behind me unoccupied the entire night (we were a party of 3). Not going to directly assume it was because I’m Indian but I didn’t see a very diverse customer base in the restaurant so the thought did cross my mind. Food took nearly an hour to arrive after ordering and dessert took over 20 minutes as well. Server was great but pretty helpless when it came to timings with food. Overall the experience I expected when I look at the restaurant from the outside was nowhere close to what I got. Not to mention the price we paid for the few dishes. Don’t think I would return. Would just keep going back to imperial treasure next door, which never disappoints.
Extremely slow service. More than 1 hour to start first dish.
Beautiful venue, well organised and friendly staff and excellent food, can't wait to return
Service was excellent. Breakfast was okay.
Great food. Nice buzz during lunchtime. Very friendly waiting staff
Food is a bit hit and miss - very rich and oily and not a great deal of choice on the menu
Outstanding food and great portion sizes.
Beautiful setting and decor.
Ideal for a business lunch or a quieter family meal.
Fabulous flavours and quality ingredients. Particularly loved the beef. Luxury setting and service attentive yet relaxed. Perfect for a special occasion.Walking distance to theatre district.
Great lactation very nice inside - menu very limited not as advertised
Had a lovely time with my friend. Would recommend.
Ordered the 8 course tasting menu with wine “pairing”. Pairing is in quotes as not all courses are actually paired with a wine. Last course never arrived. Ambiance was a nice hotel lobby.
Great meal as ever!
Lovely food, drinks, wine and staff. The sea bass was amazing as was the beetroot, black pudding and white peach starter. The only reason I've given it 4 stars is because they charged us for 2 set menus plus a la carte starter and main instead of 1 set menu. Had we not checked the bill we would have paid £27 unnecessarily.
Spacious sophisticated ambient place. Effortless service , fab food at a very good price.
Very elegant restaurant with clearly experienced staff. Food was certainly elevated in style and a sophisticated attempt at providing refreshing lunch options; however, I was underwhelmed with the overall taste balances. Expensive option, but couldn't fault the staff and service side.
Service towards the beginning of our meal was poor. We were going to the theatre and had booked our table to suit this, however as the restaurant was almost empty the servers appeared to have been given other tasks to complete and we had to push to be seated for dinner about half an hour after our booking. We had been waiting in the bar.
Once we were seated the service improved a great deal. The setting, decor and location are all beautiful.
The food was good, however perhaps not quite as good as the price would imply. I had lamb which was very rare - I had to remove large layers of raw fat which I tried but could simply not stomach. The lamb ought to have been better done, to my taste (I was not asked how I would like it cooked). Everything else about the food was lovely, particularly the cheese board and the chocolate cake dessert.
amazing experience, great service and great food
Really great experience. Lovely food and service.
We had the taster menu and it was beautiful. Lovely variety in the dishes. Some things that were familiar, some that were not. Highlights for me were the octopus and the mushroom tart. The lamb was also beautifully cooked and the ice cream was a revelation. The value for money was actually excellent, of course the taster menu is an expensive option, but there was a lots of courses and the portions (unlike other taster menu's I have had) were a good size. The service was impeccable and the building/room are beautiful. Perhaps the only point of difference was the intimacy of the restaurant. Given how open it is and the music choice, it was possibly lacking in the intimacy we were hoping for. Though this didn't detract from us having a wonderful meal and ordinarily (when it isn't our anniversary) we may not be as concerned with how intimate the setting is.
We had an excellent waitress but the food was extremely average. The ambience of the restaurant could be enhance by nicer music. Unfortunately it felt like just another hotel restaurant. Will I go back? I doubt it. Expensive for the quality we were served.
The food is amazing. The staff are friendly and helpful, and are as attentive or inconspicuous as needed.
Will definitely try to return to try the 7 course taster menu
Fantastic pre theatre meal! Highly recommend! Beautiful restaurant, beautiful food!
Fantastic!! A real treat with superb food and excellent service. We were welcomed warmly and looked after thereafter. Great choice of food with an excellent wine list. Very good value for money at a high quality restaurant. I look forward to returning very soon.
We had the tasting menu which was most enjoyable.
Excellent attentive service from knowledgeable staff.
Friendly relaxed atmosphere.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent restaurant with extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff, cannot wait to return; the Australian Pinot Grigio is an absolute must!
Wonderful dining experience.
Tasting menu was brilliant with superb wine pairings.
Staff were friendly with just right level of attention. The nice relaxed ambience allowed for easy conversation.
London at it’s best!!
We recommend Wild Honey. Service was superb (lovely front of house team). Food was very good. We all said we would eat there again.
And some of our party can be quite fussy… ! impressive place. Thank you for a great lunch and making us feel so welcome.
Just superb cooking, very good service and excellent value
We enjoyed everything about our dinner here, especially the slow cooked lamb which was absolutely delicious. Beautiful room, decor, atmosphere, friendly and very good food. Thank you very much for a lovely evening..
Lovely food and friendly service...we have enjoyed a lot. Looking forward for another visit and will definitely endorse to my friends to try the food...
Come and dine here before they get their inevitable Michelin star in case the prices increase. The service makes you feel home from home. Superb food - best custard tart ever. The tasting menu is truly outstanding.
Lovely evening at wild and honey - food was impeccable. Will definitely be returning!
The food was fantastic, the service fabulous and the ambience relaxed. The only snag we had was the fact that anchovy was part of a salad on the veggie menu, when I enquired I was told that was a typo, but alas the salad tasted fishy! They did take it off the bill but I wasn't very pleased I'd eaten fish when Im an ethical veggie!
Can recommend the Hereford beef! Delicious with its wine based sauce + Charlotte pots! Friendly service too + nice relaxed atmosphere! Prime location too near Trafalgar Square!
