Terroirs has been serving true food and pouring natural wine since 2008. A London institution and industry favourite, it's still a must visit place for foodies where you can rub shoulders with international winemakers.

Terroirs is split between two levels. The street-level restaurant has some outdoor seating and a large bar that can seat up to 14 people, with a great view of the open kitchen.

The Cellar downstairs has very high ceilings and original brick walls, with an additional kitchen and bar area which hosts our regular wine tastings, visiting winemaker dinners, magnum parties and cellar cinema screenings.

This unique space is also available for private hire.

We arrived 15 minutes early for a confirmed (and reconfirmed) dinner reservation for 9.30pm on Friday evening. Not very late for this part of London one would think. The receptionist advised us that they had a nice table for us, but that they had virtually run out of food. I asked her to show us what was left on the menu, which is not very extensive anyway, and she crossed-out about 75% of the items. The lady was very apologetic and explained that they had been rather busy.

This was not in fact a particularly busy evening. We obviously could not eat there, and since there are many good restaurants in the area we fortunately found a table nearby, but this was an absolutely unsatisfactory experience. I had a smartphone in my pocket and the restaurant had my contact details, yet no effort had been made to alert me to any problem.

I complained to Opentable who responded quickly and well. I received a further apology from the GM of the restaurant group offering to look after us well if we booked again, but frankly that is what one expects anyway. Clearly Terroirs was off the rails and I will not be going back there; Opentable needs to take a strong line with a restaurant that threatens its reputation in this way.

We have eaten at Terroirs on a number of previous occasions. We like the atmosphere and the service is generally good. The staff are friendly and efficient. Last Thursday, after a day visiting two art galleries, we chose Terroirs for a belated anniversary meal. We shared a selection of charcuterie, which we have done before. Our one disappointment was that we were charged for a second basket of bread. This seemed mean to us, given that when we had a similar meal in Bordeaux in April we were given a second basket of bread with no charge. However this, in itself, would not deter us from visiting Terroirs again in the future.

Most of the food was OK but £15 for 4 very small pieces of cheese is a ripoff. The cheese wasn't even that good and could have been from the Coop. Waitress had a bit of an attitude problem'

I "sent" some family members here as a pre-theatre meal, and they loved it. Didn't get a detailed review of the food - but I've always enjoyed eating there, the food and the ambience are great for a get together.

This is the third time I have been to this restaurant. Each time I have told them we need to be out by a certain time to go to the theatre. Each time the first course has been delivered quickly and each time the wait for the second course has been unacceptable: each time I have had to complain and each time the response has been lackadaisical. It is such a pity as the food is excellent, but I advise against going to this restaurant for a pre-theatre meal.

The quality of the food and wine is excellent. This is the closest thing to being in France that we have found in London. We love the rillettes and always find other dishes that please us. A bit pricey but worth it. One of our favorite places.

Smallest ever main course portion sizes for £22. It has the air of being run by YTS ie people who’ve never run a restaurant before. We weren’t offered bread and had to ask for it for the cheese course - 4 lumps of cheese were just brought on a plate- no butter, no grapes, no celery, no walnuts, no chutney, no dates, no nothing. I wouldn’t recommend
