Went for a proper lunch with wine and meat. This is a great venue for such an occasion. The restaurant above the bar is small, but has a nice atmosphere. We started quite late and so most other tables were finishing but the service was excellent throughout and there was no hint that we should leave even when there was a shift change in the staff. The steak was very good and well cooked. I found the pepper sauce a little too creamy for my taste but all in all the whole experience was a good one and I would definitely go back. Prices were reasonable for the City and there are wine selections that mean you can enjoy good wine without rationing it and that is rare.

I booked this restaurant on a whim for my friends birthday as we were going to be in the area and I love steak. This has to be by far the best steak I have ever had. It was cooked to perfection, flavours and all. The mash potato was extremely creamy and I will definitely be going again.
The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly and welcoming.
Great location for transport links and great value for money.
defo worth a trip.

The service was impeccable. We ordered express menu which doesn't mean they'd usher us out in a hurry :) We shared some sides etc which was confusing but the service staff was so genuinely nice and patient and made sure to accommodate our request. Food was great and plentiful, cocktails interesting, as for dessert, I had food envy for salted caramel fondant my friend ordered. It was Friday night so quite noisy as the restaurant was above the bar with open ceiling.

Excellent location near Bank Station and quiet area upstairs for block booking. Good food and friendly service with just one guest served late for scallops but otherwise 9 out of 10

We were four work colleagues who came for a 'celebration', but also a 'business meeting' dinner. We had three courses each and were very well looked after by waitress Christina. The food was very nice and there was nothing to complain about. However, there was nothing very remarkable about it either. Although the restaurant upstairs was quiet, there was still loads of noise from the downstairs bar that was heaving with people. That said, the atmosphere was lovely and I would go back. Not a place to talk or for romance though!

Here as a guest of a potential client, and was very impressed. Good friendly service, equally good food and drink and a good ambience helped the business meal go well. Will definitely be back! A hidden gem in the City of London!

Food was pretty good all round and came fairly quickly, price was in line with other restaurants in the city but not especially great value. Waitress serving us was a little surly despite our relaxed demeanour.

Ok but not able to recommend. It’s quite expensive for what it really is. Felt more like a bar with a restaurant second than vice Verda. We had to ask for our sides which arrived 5 minutes after our burgers.

I booked the Silk and Grain to meet a friend for a business lunch. We sat upstairs. The restaurant is in a great position and is very comfortable. Service is also very good and friendly. The menu and the food were lovely! Very nicely cooked and reasonably priced.

Very enjoyable early evening meal at Silk & Grain - the service was excellent, not overbearing but friendly. We ate off the set menu and were not disappointed, everything was beautifully presented. Check out the great cocktails - a real treat!

Great food, the steaks are excellent. I went on Monday night and the upstairs restaurant area was closed. We were seated on tall benches in the bar area, not very comfortable for a three course meal. If they had told me in advance I would have cancelled. Bit disappointing as the upstairs area looked great.

If you are having a business meeting ask for a table upstairs as its quieter. Great table, great food, great venue. My business guest was impressed so ticked all the boxes for me. Will definitely be returning.

Fantastic food (the steaks are outstanding) and great value with OpenTable offer of 25% off food. One of the only deals available on a Friday evening, which is when we dined. I requested somewhere quiet and we were sat in the dining area upstairs, which was lovely. Booked for 18:45 and we were the only ones there until a bit later when more customers arrived. Even though downstairs was roudy in the bar area with city workers finishing their week, upstairs was lovely and stayed fairly quiet throughout the evening. Great service too, thank you. Will definitely be returning.

This place was recommended to me and we went here for pre-theatre supper, somewhere close for the Barbican. I was expecting it to a nice relaxed very smart restaurant as that is the impression I got from the photos on the website. It is a very buzzy pub on the ground floor and a smart dining area on a mezzanine floor above which overlooks the bar. It is very smart, loud music but not too loud we couldn't hear ourselves talk. The service was excellent, the food was very well done. My only disappointment was that I didn't realise we were effectively in a pub. However I would recommend this place, it is close to shops and the Barbican (if you don't mind a bit of a walk that is or grab a cab) but due to its location I suspect it is more for workers drinking and eating post their working day.
