Restaurant Story London
We opened in April 2013 gaining our first Michelin star only five months after opening.
Inspired by chef Tom Sellers’ culinary career and the history of British food, our dishes are an edible story, each one inspired by a memory. We want to share these memories with you through what you see, smell and taste.
To help achieve this, we select only the freshest seasonal British produce and then pair it with an exclusive wine list featuring small wine producers and select British craft ales sourced locally.
- Surfaces sanitised between seatings
- Common areas deep cleaned daily
- Limited number of seated diners
- Distancing maintained in common areas
- Extra space between tables
- Waiting staff wear masks
- Sick staff prohibited in the workplace
We went expecting something special, and it ended up even better still. Every individual dish could have been the pinnacle of any other meal and the wine pairings were sublime! The staff struck the perfect balance between being attentive but not intrusive, and their explanations of the dishes were absolutely on point.
I've already told so many people that this has to be a top choice destination once this newest lockdown ends, and I can't wait to return.
Wonderful, as always. Team doing themselves proud on the last day before lockdown! Thank you Tom, Jack, John and all the team who looked after us so well.
The food, the experience and the venue are all perfect. It is not a cheap night out but given what you are experiencing I highly recommend.
It is a lovely dinner for those who appreciate an unique and delicious meal. Tasting menu was incredible!!
Great experience, exceeded expectations. Can’t wait for another special occasion to go back!
One of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had. Can’t recommend highly enough. The staff were incredible and the food was outstanding. P
Highly recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a special dining experience.
Beautifully presented and delicious dishes with attentive service.
Lovely experience highly recommend
Beautifully presented tasting menu. We had both the regular and the vegetarian tasting menus served at our table. The dishes are so inventive and fun. The service was immaculate from start to finish. Thank you for a special and memorable evening.
Excellent in every way
30th birthday treat
At least Michelin 2stars-level serves and foods.
Most excellent food, drinks and service. Superb dinner
A wonderful experience that was even better than expected
Amazing food, really enjoyable tasting menu. Would recommend
I treated my husband for a meal as a wedding gift. Honestly, we both loved our experience at the Story. The food was presented beautifully, the staff looked after us so well and all the little details were just so special. Thank you so much for making it a lovely experience.
A very good tasting lunch menu. We had 3 guests all with different dietary requirements which were all handled well. Each of us received different menus, but all dishes were coordinated and arrived at same time. The staff were very attentive and pleasant. We took the corresponding drink flight which was well matched and contained some choices we never would have considered but worked well.
Overall a very good experience. Most enjoyable
Amazing food. We did the wine pairing which I would recommend.
The staff are attentive but not intrusive. Tom Sellers oversees everything. He served and explained one of the dishes which was fab.
Great place would definitely recommend and will return.
Story is a place to remember. Excellent food, attentive genuinely friendly staff. A must go.
Top dinner experience in London. Food is beyond incredible and the team cater to your likes and dislikes. My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary and the Restaurant Story team made every moment feel special. Will definitely come back again.
Just stunning...... presentation, flavour, service (v.covid appropriate without spoiling the experience) and overall experience was faultless.....had a simply wonderful lunch with my sister. The calm kitchen, out of which comes the most spectacular food, is open to the dining room and the discreet but friendly team of waiters make this a truly memorable place to dine.
The most incredible food and service I have ever experienced!
Stunning food and great service. Always made to feel welcome and special. New additions to the menu only added to the experience.
Simply the best .. is the only way to describe the story.even 4 days after the event I’m completely tore about which cause was the best ....I love it all
A pretty punchy restaurant price wise ( we were just over £1000 for four) but in fairness we didn't hold back on the drinks! The dishes were interesting and the beef dripping candle was a new one on me. I particularly liked the lobster and lamb caesar. Overall a pretty good experience but with strong competitors such as Core and Kitchen Table who have the edge.
Incredible food, 9 course plus more. Don't eat before you go
Extraordinary tasting menu with a really interesting drinks accompaniment. A little on the expensive side, but it's worth it for a treat.
Visiting Restaurant Story was a wonderful experience. The level of thought, skill and care that Tom and the team put into making it is evident from the moment you approach the restaurant and are greeted and never falters before you sadly have to leave some hours later.
Fabulous food, great staff and lovely restaurant surroundings. Not cheap, but came away thinking that we had had a great meal and service experience.
Took my husband for his birthday and it was absolutely perfect! The space is intimate without feeling cramped, and the food was just incredible. Can't recommend enough and I'd absolutely go again for a similar celebrations.
I never get bored of this restaurant - everything about it is special. I am so happy that Tom and his team rode through the storm. The new sommelier has done a great job with the pairings and introduced some amazing new wines. Happy Restaurant Story is back in business.
Best restaurant I have ever been too! Well worth the money for a special occasion or birthday.
Fantastic meal for a special occasion, a real treat!
Really nice experience and the food was exceptional! Highly recommended if you’re looking for an intimate Michelin restaurant.
Faultless. Fantastic food, fantastic music. Easily my favourite restaurant of all time.
Absolutely exceptional in every way, sadly including the price, so it’s definitely one to save for a special occasion
We had a lovely experience at Restaurant Story. A great place to dine for a special occasion!
Quite simply the best dining experience we’ve ever had! Mind blowing! Dined at Core, Zuma, Le Gavroche, Novikov, Five Fields, all the best places but they don’t even come close to Story. Every dish was amazing and the whole experience was phenomenal. Every little detail thought out to the tee! Will definitely be back again and again. Thank you so much to Tom and the team.
Fantastic food, fantastic staff would highly recommend.
Quite disappointed that no
Waiter is wearing a face covering. An easy thing to give the guest an extra feel of security to enjoy the evening.
First dine out since lockdown.
Great food and lovely ambience. I especially liked the beautiful scallop and enjoyed the Paddington bear inspired fromage, also found the Japanese-style pull-apart milk bread (chigiri-pan) very interesting.
All nicely light and just right portion for me. Perfectly content after the 7 course lunch.
As for a new guideline of social distancing and hygiene, there was hand sanitiser on each table, which made us more comfortable to eat out. Really appreciate it.
