Amazing experience. Delightful staff, delicious food and wine.
I last visited and gave the restaurant an unequivocal 5 stars. Sadly this visit was not as good. The restaurant is a nice place to eat and the food of a very high quality.
The problem was it was last night before tier 3 and it was busy and they only had 6 front of house staff so service was not as expected. What really was poor was the wine service. I Chose a £100 bottle of white but the sommelier tried to upsell me to £350 bottle. Now I know enough about restaurants wine list markups to know so will not pay £350 for a bottle that retails at £100. I ordered a bottle of red that arrived as we we were finishing our main course. I refused to accept it. Credit to the sommelier he apologised and gave us four glasses on the house.
As I say the restaurant was stretched but at this level and price point it is no excuse. It spoilt what should have been a great evening. I will go again to see if we can capture the magic of my first visit.
Great as always. Thanks for an excellent night all
Perhaps our eighth time of coming to William Drabble (over as many years) and it would always have been 5 stars in the past. Food was good - but I can get 'good' anywhere - service was OK, but the annoyance was a wine pairing that was second rate and meanly served. It was served autocratically (not given tastes or options) and after a lengthy explanation of the wine's wonders - nothing impressed. I still have great confidence that William Drabble is a very fine chef - but cost pressures are perhaps cutting standards. Great pity - but I doubt that we'll ever return.
Functional service - missed offering the cheese course on the menu gourmand and a glass of red wine with the meat course
Food was attractively presented and tasted pretty good although I would say it‘s not one of the best Michelin starred restaurants we’ve dined in. The biggest issue I had was that the food was only warm rather than hot. Given there were only 6-8 of us dining at any given time, I couldn’t understand why. The service was impeccable.
Wonderful from start to finish!
We had a nice lunch and service was good and quick. We really enjoyed! Chocolate pudding was delicious ....
A lunchtime outing. In view of the Covid problems and fear of what is coming next we thought "it's time to treat ourselves". We opted for the full works. Tasting menu and paired premium wines. As expected small plates of wonderful dishes... the good bit's of a normal plate of food. Service faultless, food fantastic. A total of eight courses. With six (or was it seven !!) matching wines.
A wonderful and as you might expect very extravagant meal. Prawn, smoked salmon, lobster bisque and a separate lobster dish, foie gras, turbot, venison, a mouth cleanser and finally a deconstructed lemon tart. Some classic wine pairings and a couple of new taste for me.. a Swiss white and a South African sweet wine. The final bill was BIG !! but we might not be able to go out soon.. so if you want to push the boat out this is the place to go.
Very enjoyable lunch experience, great service and good food !
Great food and service. Restaurant was very quiet (probably because of level of diners during COVID).
As ever, great food, fully worthy of a Michelin star
Service was not up to a Michelin star restaurant. Food was fair, nothing special really. And wine prices were overpriced.
It was vert relaxed atmosphere, food was delicious and the wines to go with each coarse were lovely. The only negative was that the coarses were very rushed with very little time between.
I have now words. Perfection. The best business meal for one I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy.
It was a very enjoyable lunch. We had a tasting menu of 7 courses. Size of a portion was just right, taste was great, services were excellent It was very quiet over lunch as not a lot of customers but the chef was still doing his best to provide good quality of food.
A pleasant meal, pleasant ambiance, well-cooked food, charming staff, but cuisine lacked innovation. A “safe” meal and undoubtedly a good one, but not a memorable one.
Really lovely lunch. Great value set lunch with matching wines. The only thing was that the courses felt quite rushed and close together but that may have been because it was lunchtime.
Lunch menu excellent value for money. Service fist class. The menu choice is limited but gives you the chance to try something different. We chose the ox cheek. Would never order normally but it was excellent. Never tasting anything so full of flavour. Absolutely recommend the whole experience
Had high hope for this michelin star restaurant? had a tasting menu that day, food was average. the spoon was not clean at 1 of the course. I won't go there again.
The food at Seven Park Place was excellent, and I thought the three course dinner with various amuse-bouche, palate cleansers, chocolates and glass of bubbles represented excellent value for money. The service was very sharp and attentive, and despite the room being somewhat physically disjointed the staff were immediate available whenever needed. The main disappointment is the venue itself. The dining room was warm to the point of being uncomfortable, the toilets were dirty, and the dining room felt cramped & disjointed and not befitting of the quality of food and service. I think William Drabble and his team are doing wonderful work, but let down by a poor environment.
This was my second visit to this restaurant after having thoroughly enjoyed the experience on the first occasion. However the experience this time around was no where as good as the first. It all started with the menu, the one on their website and on OpenTable bears no resemblance to what's being offered in the restaurant. When I enquired about this the waiter's response was 'we were in lockdown for 3 months so you have to ignore everything you see on the website'. Not acceptable as many other, less prestigious, restaurants have taken the time to update theirs. That being said they did accommodate a different starter but when my partner asked about the desert the response was 'it is what it is'...ie take it or leave it. Again, not the sort of response you expect. The food itself was also average, it tasted good, but you expect more than good from a Michelin starred restaurant. I also don't usually comment on toilet facilities, as I haven't had to, but the ones here were an absolute mess! Lockdown or not, if you're open for business you should ensure your facilities are clean. I left feeling really disappointed.
Absolutely lovely birthday lunch with friends.
Had the 3 course lunch and paired wine , couldn't fault it
Excellent food and brilliant service in a stunning environment.
No aircon (due to Covid apparently) when the weather is so warm is problematic.
Wonderful evening, great food and service. Thank you very much
Our first visit for some months (for obvious reason!) and what joy! Fuelled by our memories of pre Covid era of exceptionally high standards for quality of food and service we braved the heatwave and hoped for a very pleasant lunch. The heat notwithstanding, the whole experience was superb from start to finish. In fact both of us felt that, unbelievably, everything seemed to have been taken to an even higher level. Thank you everybody for all your hard work in these extremely hot conditions and we look forward to another visit.
Worst experience ever! Outside 31 degrees Celsius inside 34 degrees! I don't think anybody can have dinner at 34 degrees. Apart from this, I don't think that the employees should work fully dressed at that temperature. Please stay at home or if you want to visit the restaurant do it when it's cold outside as they are not using air-con due to health reasons related to COVID. Please keep the restaurant closed if you can't trade properly. You don't deserve the Michelin Star at all.
Their AC was broken on one of the hottest days in the year. I don’t normally sweat a lot but my shirt was soaked. When you pay that kind of money (it was expensive even for a Michelin starred restaurant) for a meal you expect to enjoy the experience and certainly did not. At least buy a fan while it gets fixed!
Really enjoyed the food. We were there on a very quiet Saturday so there were only two other tables.
Our first meal out since Lockdown. Excellent food, amazing presentation, flavours and textures, with a great wine list. Attentive and friendly service too, this was a truly lovely experience, except lack of air conditioning on a hot evening.
No air con, lots of flies in the restaurant even landed in our wine and on our food. Meat dishes were over salted and service was awful. Nowhere near a Michelin star restaurant standard.
Had the gourmand menu. It was all superb. In fact there again and it was even better. Well worth the Michelin star in all aspects. If you like good food and are in the west end you should eat here.
In the time of corona virus I assume it was untypically quiet. I was previous unacquainted with this restaurant which was the suggestion of my companion. I must acknowledge myself as very much a pleb so I do not naturally tend towards such a level of cuisine. I doubt that many of my friends would go for the level of cost either. Apropos, of the following question the truthful answer is 'it depends'.
Service was phenomenal. Food exquisite. And the wines were perfectly paired. A phenomenal experience.
This is a superb place to eat. The food is worth of two stars and is prepared by the actual chef. I had the gourmand menu and all seven courses were exemplary. My standout was the John Dory but every dish was top class.
Lovely room although quiet on the night I was there. I believe this is in the top five in London. A must visit in my opinion.
The place is great for a date night!
My girlfriend and I love the place.
It was so lovely to go to a gorgeous civilized restaurant. The food was delicious - it was a terrific deal - and the staff were really helpful and lovely; it was quiet and comfortable. Such a relief to have a pleasurable dining experience after the last few months. Thank you.
Some excellent staff (10/10 for the barman) but some very disappointing service let-downs given that we were paying top dollar.
1. We weren’t offered the tasting menu. Had I not known about it - we would have thought the option simply did not exist. When I asked about the tasting menu - that menu was fetched without apology or explanation. Odd.
2. The premium paired wine menu (£130 per head) was ok. I think I’d expect it to be better than ok. One of the wines was served in the glass rather than from the bottle (which we never saw). Odd.
3. We were not offered the cheese course although it was clearly an option. I would expect to be asked whether I would like to take cheese before proceeding past that part of the menu. We weren’t offered it and would have elected to have it had it been offered. Odd.
4. We weren’t offered a digestif with our coffees. I had to ask for something after the coffee was served. This is very odd. Why would you not offer a digestif?
5. Once the coffees (and eventually the digestifs) were served we were abandoned. We weren’t offered more coffee or another drink or even invited to the bar. Neither were we presented with the check. This is very strange. It was as if we became invisible. Eventually - we ventured to the bar where the waiter was sitting at a table and we asked for another drink and the check. Odd.
Food-wise it was fine. The lamb was not exceptional and the fish skin served with the fish course was chewy rather than crispy. The foie gras was excellent as was then gazpacho.
Altogether some serious flaws in the service. Ones that I simply wouldn’t expect in an average restaurant let alone one which has lofty aspirations.
Our first night out since lockdown. Did not disappoint overall.
