    There were some really original and successful ideas for sandwiches, but they seemed to have been made a bit too much in advance - they were still good, but past their best. The patisserie, however was excellent. There were some (minor) mistakes in service which tended to be blamed on other peolple rather than being actually apologised for.

    I mistakenly didn’t tick the experience tab when booking online, so when we got to the restaurant they would not let us have the set menu. Also the food was well presented but the crispy warm duck salad was soft(not crispy) and cold and cold duck under a micro salad is not very palatable.

    We ate in the bar (it was a Wednesday and the restaurant appeared to be closed), it was a bit soulless and not like the pictures! The food was quite tasty, but there were only a very few, unexciting options. Service was good. Not awful, but I won’t be returning.

    Waitresses lovely but food offering extremely poor with very little choice. Not suitable for people with intolerances as the offering becomes even smaller. We only ended up having starters because of this and they were underwhelming. Overall a very bad experience and would not return or recommend.

    A “shot in the dark” reservation for a family meal, close to the Albert Hall for a pre-show treat. Lovely ambience, despite not being busy. Menu good, and service very attentive and prompt. No complaints - would go here again. A couple of “plain” main dishes such as the chicken Milanese, steak was good but a little overdone. Veggie wellington a great alternative for the vegetarians. Overall a lovely experience.
