                        We booked the table through open table and we were not disappointed. Staff were friendly and polite. Food was of a high standard and the wine was excellent. Would definitely visit again and recommend to others

                        We were there for a pre-theatre dinner. The service was painfully slow and inspite of us arriving at 5.30 we still hadn’t had our bill by 7.20 when we needed to leave. One of our party didn’t get the main course she had ordered but we were running so late by then, and they said it would take 10 mins to rectify the order, so we had to make do. The mains come with virtually nothing else on the plate so you get stung for “ sides” which at £6 a go, make a mockery of the good value pre-theatre price and make the experience far less affordable. Very disappointing.

                        An unexpected surprise - the venue is stunning and the location fabulous. Aside from a few glitches with service (more than made up for with free champagne) everything was perfect and the food genuinely delicious. Great value too! Recommended.

                        Beautiful building, very olde-worlde; although the restaurant seems very upmarket at first, it is not intimidating and is a very relaxing space to eat in. My companion & I could have sat chatting for hours - which we nearly did, as unfortunately the service - despite a plethora of waiters - was VERY slow (though impeccable, when it came!). After an hour and 20 minutes, we were just finishing our main courses when we realised the time, and that we had to leave for the theatre in 10 minutes. After apprising the staff of our situation, they quickly brought the bill, and, because of the delays, removed the cost of the (cold) desserts - which was just as well because after then minutes there was still no sign of them and we had to leave. A pity, because they sounded very nice. The salmon rillete starter and sea bream main that I had were both very good (but if you want any veg with the main you have to order separately and pay extra). The set menu is good value, because this is a pricey restaurant - the cheapest wine was £12 per glass. So, a lovely place to eat, but expensive and the service left a lot to be desired.

                        This was a dual celebration Saturday lunch and certainly met all our expectations. We were the only guests in for lunch which made the room quiet but the service was exceptional right from arrival to finish. It livened up as we were leaving with a party in for afternoon tea. The restaurant is moving and it sounds as if the set menu special with champagne(which was v nice) is stopping so if you are considering try it quick.

                        This was my first time in this restaurant, booked for a mid week dinner with a friend. Very nice decor alhough seating quite ‘ deep’ and could benefit with having some cushions. Couldn’t fault the food which was lovely and portion size perfect. Wait staff very attentive, almost too much so - needed to ask that we wanted a bit more time before looking at the menu again for dessert as they arrived with menus as soon as we had finished main course and the plates were removed. I also assume they didn’t know what a lime soda was as I had to ask twice for it and on the second occasion was asked how I would like it to be made. In summary, nice food slightly let down by wait staff.

                        We came here for lunch after seeing the Charles I art exhibition at the Royal Academy. The refurbishment has been lovely. The staff were friendly and attentive. We had the set lunch menu - £20 for 2 courses and great value. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and will return. It's a lovely haven of peace just off bustling Regent St.

                        The food was very good. The setting is very smart. The service is attentive but a little slow for pre-theatre. If they improved the pre-theatre speed then this would be the ideal pre-season location for the theatres in Shaftesbury Avenue.

                        Very welcoming staff, extremely pleasant ambience. Food and wine served with care and attention. Friendly personnel and I especially liked the free glass of champagne, because the staff decided that we had waited too long for our dessert. Would enjoy returning there.

                        A quiet oasis, but even so inte middle of everything. We had lunch here, and thanks to our waiter Giuseppe the meal was perfect. He was very friendly and attentive, and the food was good. We will be back.

                        Staff were friendly. Relaxed though was slightly worried because took a while to order food. Restaurant was quiet but might be due to it being early evening in January. Relaxed atmosphere though perhaps slightly sterile. Food was excellent.

                        I would definitely recommend this hotel. We had lunch in the Ten Room restaurant. Our meal was perfect, particularly the liver paté and the beef cheek. My only criticism was that the waiter did not mention the set menu, only giving us the a la carte one. Fortunately, I knew about the set menu as we were not prepared to pay the a la carte prices! The ambience of the hotel (cocktail bar and tea room looked beautiful ) was tasteful and calming after the chaos of shoppers outside on Regent Street.

                        Went for dinner New Year's Eve. Disappointing overall. Food good but main course portion ridiculously small. Service charming but very scattergun. As for ambience, the restaurant was perfectly happy for guests to spend dinner on the biggest night of the year in T-shirts, trainers and tracksuit bottoms. It was New Year's Eve for goodness sake in a smart restaurant, surely they can insist on at least smart casual. Meal worked out at over £150 a head without being extravagant in wine choices or quantities. If this is the experience one should expect on New Year's Eve from one of the smartest venues in London, I am lost for words.

                        My wife and I both enjoy going to Ten Room - a lovely setting with good service and a touch of elegance without being stuffy in any way. The staff are pleasant and welcoming although occassionally a bit inattentive. They are happy to cater for gluten free and offer some quite healthy menu options. Our one disappointment this time was the food. We chose for the main course bream with kale and had side dishes of veg. The fish and veg were tasty and well cooked - but all of it was done in butter which made the overall meal far too greasy for our liking. Indeed we both felt uncomfortable afterwards. Butter obviously adds richness to a dish, but it needs some acidity to cut through it and balance that fat. This was the first time we have been disappointed with the food.

                        Ten Room is a comfortable and classy venue with attentive staff and great food. The adjacent Green Room bar is lovely - cosy and inviting and so imaginatively decorated for Christmas. I found this venue hard to fault.

                        Booked the table for my girlfriend’s birthday. Due to the heritage and price of the food I was expecting an elegant, luxurious experience. Instead, the food was average at best, and the service was really poor. Ordered a couple of cocktails that took forever to arrive and had to prompt the waiter. Do not want to be harsh but I think our waitress was new and was not equipped for the role. Certainly not worth the money and would not recommend to anyone else. Such a shame as I wanted this to be a special evening.

                        Food and service were ok but we were on the edge so we had a constant stream of people going from the bar to the toilets It was like dining in a corridor. Considering the cost of the meal this was naturally disappointing
