Very good food but the ambiance is quite formal and stiff and old fashioned / business vibe. Felt the waiters were almost pushing the wine menu, and sense that rather than caring we had a good experience they just were on a mission to get us to consume more
Food excellent, wine list extensive. We got a bit stung by not asking how much the bottle of wine was after having a small carafe and ended up with a hefty bill but that was our fault!
Superb service and atmosphere; excellent food and an impressive wine list
Service was great, menu was different to the one online which was disappointing. Portion sizes were small. Do not think i would return here or recommend to a friend, I have been to better places for the same cost.
We had a very pleasant lunch.
Small problem which has nothing to do with the Gilbert Scott restaurant but which I shall evoke here is the fact that in spite of two emails to the St. Pancras Hotel regarding a large envelope I inadvertendly left in the ladies' cloakroom on the ground floor of the hotel no reply has yet been forthcoming. The envelope contained an important legal document and I would like to retrieve it. So, although the Gilbert Scott experience was excellent I am left with a poor taste in my mouth concerning the attitude of the hotel.
Part of gastronomic journey with nephew
It’s a beautiful restaurant in a fantastic setting with superior service. I don’t usually eat game and decided to try the grouse. It was served rare and was impossible to cut. Even after being cooked more, it was still quite tough. Not a good choice for me. My dining partner was delighted with the halibut.
I have visited the Gilbert Scott on several occasions with my wife and also had a fantastic experience. We decided to come for Sunday lunch with our two kids (14 and 16) to celebrate my daughters GCSE results. Not only were we not disappointed but my kids also understood why we rate this restaurant so highly and so enjoy our visits. Staff made a fuss of my daughter and chef served a complimentary amuse bouche and special Congratulations dessert for her! Our food was delightful, service exemplary and the ambience as ever magnificent.
Well done to Marcus Wareing and the team for maintaining such high standards - looking forward to our next visit!
A really special meal! Fantasic ingredients all cooked to perfection. Friendly and funny staff without being obsequious. And some of the finest wine i’ve tasted in the last couple of years. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
Comfortable seating in a stunningly impressive architectural gem. Service was smooth and the wine list extensive. They even created a miniature birthday cake when they overheard that one of us was about to have a birthday!
The food was very good, we both had fish, cod and sea bass. Not so sure about the spring greens as a side. Spinach would perhaps have been better, but that's personal taste. Service was very professional, and quick, not rushed, and unobtrusive. The restaurant was pleasantly busy. Location obviously ideal if using either St Pancras or Kings Cross. It was a business lunch and I would certainly use it again.
A really excellent restaurant for a special occasion
We dined here recently as a belated birthday celebration for my husband’s mum. The cocktails are amazing and the food is delicious. The wine menu is quite extensive and service is very good. Definitely recommend dining here for special occasions and/or special date night.
It was my second visit with a customer, outstanding food, service and wine. Really enjoyed it and will be back again.
Well talk about a game of two halves... my chicken and mushroom terrine starter was sublime. My lamb chops main course was so completely average I felt I had been mugged for the £25 it cost me. Nothing specifically wrong with it so I couldn’t send it back, just bland, a bit chewy, two bits of brocolli next to it, no flavour in anything... basically something I would cook on a bad day... shame.
This was a mid-week get together so we didn’t want to spend too much money - however, we were steered towards and expensive bottle of wine so beware. We ordered the set menu with a summer cocktail (Pimms with some fizzy wine). The set menu options offers enough choices for everyone’s tastes and none were a disappointment although the desserts were not of the same standard. So great for a Thursday night but try the a la carte for something more special.
I didn't think it was up to its usual standard, and the wine prices seem to have gone through the roof!
The food was delicious and the wine very good. We opted for the £30 set menu with a summer cocktail of Pimms & sparkling wine. Service was excellent and the staff very attentive. I’d definitely recommend dining here.
We went for the £30 special offer set menu which was very good but we felt that the wine list could do with a few cheaper options. We went for a moderate white which we thought was steeply priced at £44. With the sommelier hanging around one feels a bit uncomfortable asking for the cheapest. A good house at around the £30 mark would be good.
As usual a lovely dinner in beautiful surroundings. Food was excellent as was the service - attentive and friendly without being overpowering.
Great food, in a lovely setting and very attentive/helpful staff.
we had the al a carte menu. it was way overpriced and the food was nothing special. The desserts were miniscule and not great. with 30% vat and 12.5 % service id expect a much better meal.
A very good meal in lovely surroundings. Waiting staff were attentive and discreet. The sommelier was friendly, professional and informative. A perfect anniversary dinner.
Poor staff training. The girls at the cocktail bar when not working seems to be gossiping about customers. The overall service is poor and can tell many waiters are junior and have had little experience. Food was good with the exception of the panna cotta which was disgusting. The iberico pork was exceptional however.
Went at lunchtime on a Sunday, have to say that although the food and service was great the menu lacked a Sunday twist ie a roast option ironically the smallest portion of beef short rib I have ever eaten came at a £6 supplement
Impeccable food... as I expect from any kitchen associated with Marcus Wareing… beautifully presented (crispy pig's head is a real eye opener). The service is attentive and professional and never feels intrusive. The dining room is a splendid reminder of the old Midland Grand Hotel. The fixed price menu is a steal at £30 for three courses.
Excellent service, with a good menu - overall a delicious meal in great surroundings.
£30 set three course with a cocktail sounds like a good deal until the waiting staff continually try to get you to add extras to your bill. Not impressed
An airy venue on a very hot night with a lovely dinner starting with a gorgeous cocktail which took on board my dietary issues. We will be back!
Gilbert Scott is a great restaurant in a stunning building. The food and ambiance were unbelievable and the set menu catered nicely for vegetarian and pescatarian options. The service was great and we were made to feel special without being overbearing or intrusive. I liked how there was plenty of room on the table - no need to constantly move glasses and sharing plates around.
I would highly recommend this restaurant for everything from a business meeting to meeting friends to a date or a special occasion.
Lovely venue and food. Unfortunately, not very attentive staff. We waited a very long time before ordering food. Each time we wanted something it took ages to catch any staff’s eye.. i had to poor myself water quiet a few times .
When booking i did mention its a special birthday but the staff had no idea when I mentioned upon our arrival... They said it’s too late to ask for a cake and candle. However ,they managed to give as a Happy birthday writing and a candle on a separate plate when we received our deserts. I don’t understand why couldn’t they just stick a candle on the desert we ordered and write the message on that same plate? That is all i asked for...
Overall we were a dissatisfied with service because at this level of a restaurant one would expect a bit attention to detail.
We enjoyed the food but we probably won’t be back again.
Lovely meal with my mother prior to her journey from Kings Cross - Beautiful building, lovely meal and overall a fantastic experience!
Fairly relaxed atmosphere and we liked the seating arrangement throughout the restaurant. The food was gorgeous and the services excellent. When I’m in London next time I’will definitely go again.
The building and location drove my decision to book lunch here. The food was ok -seemed to be aiming at fine dining but fell short of that aspiration. The wine selection and service were both good.
We dined from the set menu, which at £30 per person gives 3 courses and a cocktail. The cooking was, as usual, outstanding and represented excellent value for food and service of this standard. The only issue I have is the outrageous mark-up on wine. But, of course, wine is optional.
Very enjoyable night. Got the summer set menu, great value. Special mention to the truffled cauliflower side...
The food and restaurant service were to the usual very high standard
The reception service was however poor.
Having had a severe train delay and having phoned to inform the restaurant that we would be late they confirmed an 8.15 availability upon arrive just after 8pm i was told that it would now be 8.30pm. I have a very tight schedule but there was no flexibility and a poor dismissive attitude was displayed
Being a regular visitor to this restaurant i was very unimpressed
Booked in for the 3 course tasting menu plus summer cocktail deal on our way back from holiday. We arrived early and it was no problem to change our booking to eat straight away. Beautiful hotel setting both inside and outside (i felt a little underdressed in shorts and T-shirt but was not made to feel uncomfortable). We were able to leave our luggage in the lobby til later. Attentive but not overbearing staff all through the hotel including the restaurant. Food delicious - I enjoyed the soft serve ice cream with honeycomb the most. Our side of chips probably up there with some of the best we have had. I'm a big eater and was worried that I might not be full after the meal but this was not the case. If anything I felt the food was just a touch slow to come out - the restaurant was not busy.
9/10 would go again and recommend to others.
Always very friendly - my wife and I regularly go for the amazing sunday lunch (go for the beef!) and are never disappointed by the food or the staff, who are friendly and now recognise us, which is a rare thing in London!
