Having wanted to eat at the Gilbert Scott for ages, it really didn't disappoint on value with the Opentable offer.
The service was good, not great, and could have been a little less intrusive at times, but overall, I would recommend eating here. The lamb was perfectly cooked and the duck ham was very, very tasty.
Snagged a reservation last minute for three of us enjoying the 3 courses for £35 with a free cocktail and free signed Marcus Wareing book (valued at £20). Excellent food and a nice ambience. Noisy but the high ceilings cause that not to be a problem. Front of house really struggled with the number of tables and rather let down the kitchen. Food came out tepid but just the right side of 'warm enough' Wine service was poor. Had to wrestle to get the wine list off of the sommelier. He was friendly enough, just a bit pushy. All in all a fanastic meal and they gave us a book each which was very kind. Will be back on a quieter night.
As always, GS is outstanding! Took my daughter for her 12th birthday, and the entire team were brilliant and attentive. Food was sublime... Definitely opened up my daughter's taste buds!
We went for an early evening meal after a matinee and before catching a train. It was the perfect venue for this and a lovely meal. We will be back.
The set lunch menu is excellent value. The food is very good as is the service.
Lunch was a very good experience, set in a very nice room. An added bonus was the inclusion of a Marcus Wareing cookbook.
Lovely set menu with cocktail and copy of Marcus Waring book! Good value
Cooking was on point except for really heavy croquettes and cheeseless truffled Mac n cheese.
What really lets this place down are the little things....Seats were unbearably uncomfortable and had no padding; poor choice of music blaring out of tinny speakers; slow service in my section- had to wait 15 plus mins to order desserts and restrooms a walk back past the grand staircase and third on your left if you know where that is.
The deal we had was amazing. The staff are absolutely lovely. The setting spectacular & the food wonderful
It was a freezing cold day and the heating was off- I had to sit with a heavy coat on- I did complain -the manager should have offered at least a reduction or a drink . It marred the occasion
I eat here every timethat I am in London, which is 4-5 times a year. Everything is fabulous--come early and have a drink in the equally fabulous bar. The fixed price menu is a real bargain.
Very helpful, friendly staff. Romantic atmosphere and amazing food. No issues, just very good food and a great restaurant.
Very nice restaurant- food was very good and the service was excellent- little pricey for everyday but great for a special occasion or a bit of a treat
The prices have really gone up and portions gone down! Dorset crab ok but toatally lacked seasoning and there was no salt/pepper on table. Lamb ribs delicious. Unfortunately the ginger cake whilst having a lovely flavour was so over cooked you could not cut it with a spoon and had to pick it up to eat so couldn’t have ice cream with it. The free honey/gin cocktail was too sweet and barely drinkable. So having been here many times as love ambience etc food was not up to standard
We had the £35 a head special offer which included their Beekeeper cocktail and a copy of Marcus Waring’s latest recipe book. That was good value though there were supplements of £3 on one starter and £6 on one main course and bread was £4 extra. The food was lovely, though, and the service very professional and pleasant. They start dinner service at 5:30pm which suited us fine. Altogether it was a delightful meal.
It was the second time in two weeks and enjoyed as much as the first time for great place and nice atmosphere
Poor service, waited 25 minutes for them to take my order. Ambience felt stuffy. Waitresses did a good job of not making eye contact.
Food was ok and small portions. For the price not good value. Better options in London.
Met a friend for dinner. Had the set menu, it was delicious and great value. The carrot and beetroot started was perfect, the lamb ribs melted off the bone and tasted exquisite. We shared a dessert of ginger cake with caramel sauce and ice cream. Truly heavenly.
Wonderful food unfortunately meal was ruined by Hugh air conditioning behind seats.
Great food and gorgeous dining room. The cocktails were also really nice. The service was generally really good however it was unfortunate that our waiter really let the side down.
Would definitely recommend and would go again (hopefully not unlucky enough to get the same waiter twice!)
Wonderful service and delicious food. Beautiful hotel and restaurant. Well worth the visit. Will be going again myself. The set menu deal was amazing value.
Waiting staff were great but food wasn't anything special. Seemed a bit lacking in something.
Chicken to die for, duck very tasty but those triple cooked fries were not fries, just big chunks of undercooked potatoes.
I went on a Saturday afternoon with 3 friends. We found the venue to be absolutely amazing with the St Pancreas Renaissance Hotel a stunning place to visit. As for the meal, the staff were very good and the food was lovely. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to have a lovely meal with friends. Have already recommended this place to several people.
Having dined at the Gilbert Scott on Friday evening, and choosing their set 3 course meal, I was disappointed to learn, when it came to the dessert options on the set menu list, that all options contained foods that I am allergic to. They could only offer a dessert choice from the a la carte menu which would have been an extra charge to the meal. I haven't come across this before and have eaten in a lot of restaurants in London, which are normally extremely accommodating, they have prepared something that I can actually eat, and at no extra charge to me, I would have expected a similar outcome from a restaurant of this calibre, it should have been easy to make an exception due to food allergy risk.
Food was absolutely excellent. Wine list really good; Service generally very good except for quite a delay in getting the bill after we had asked for it.
My hesitation in recommending it would be the ambience. It was quite noisey, and we were given a table for 4 in the middle, which was quite close to the table next to it,(also in the middle); An edge table might have been better.
Wonderful place great food and good serrvice.
Bit dissapponted with the service. Food was ok but not the level expected from a marcus wareing restaurant. Perhaps attention to watering needs to be paid. Not easy to understand their english and i did not see a genuine passion for food and their job.
I booked this place for a thank you meal for 4 people. The food was very good, the service was good and the venue was a great place to eat. However the whole experience was spoilt by placing us next to a wall heater that only expelled cold air. The result of this was that we felt the chill as we dined. When we spoke to the staff they conceded that there was a problem with the heating - i.e. only cold air was coming out - and that they were unable to turn it off. They did try to cover the vents with cushions and books, but this did not stop the cold air from coming out. This air-conditioned dining experience ruined what was meant to be a once-off thank you. We were one of the first guests to arrive for dinner (6.15pm) and so I think the staff should have seated us away from the heaters, as I am quite sure that this problem was not something that happened to occur on that evening. £20 was discounted from the total cost of the meal but for a first visit the experience will be unforgettable for the wrong reasons.
The space was amazing and the food was well prepared and presented (my venison was perfectly done)….the service was downright sloppy.
Between sitting down, and being asked to give our order - 20 to 30 minutes passed unattended. There was never a “do you have any questions about the menu”. It was a transactional “are you ready to order”. When we tried to place our order for a bottle of wine, we were rebuffed……”that is for the sommelier”. During the meal, several requests to have water glasses refilled were forgotten - and we were left with empty water glasses from before the starter arrived through the rest of the meal. No one refilled our wine glasses…of course we are perfectly capable of refilling our own, but I imagine for the style of the restaurant as well as your price point, this was another service faux pas.
Too bad really. Their sister restaurant - Tredwells - was a brilliant experience, and the reason we wanted to try Gilbert Scott. Forgive the pun, but the Gilbert Scott left a bad taste with us. The space presents such a strong first impression, but service is always what leaves the lasting impression.
We were left sitting for 35 minutes before someone came to pick any drink or food order, and the again ignored for the bill. I've been here a few times and it's usually fine, but was very slow. They knocked a couple of drinks off the bill for the delay, but still a quick business dinner took too long
This was our second time to The Gilbert Scott.
It was such a lovely evening
Mediocre food, slow service, bad use of space, zero ambience, a huge bill. And a tasteless cocktail. No thanks
The excellent food and impeccable service compliment the beautiful setting in the Victorian splendour of St Pancras, making an occasion of any meal. It is possible to hold a conversation without straining to hear and the bar is a haven of tranquility.
Sunday lunch, pleasant staff but inexperienced and insufficiently manned room, slow service. Very mediocre food including bog standard roast beef etc. Presentation ok. Generally more “school dinner” than Marcus Waring. Even a limited £35 a head menu should offer fresher, hotter and more exciting food.
As usual and expected an all round great dining experience.
Attentive but not intrusive staff.
Fabulous food and drinks.
The special touch of a mini birthday cake for my husband was well received.
A special place, we ll be back !!
Delightful restaurant in a beautiful hotel. We started in the amazing bar for a cocktail - what a little gem that place is! Food in the restaurant was delicious, the service outstanding and very good value for money. It was our 10th wedding anniversary and the staff brought us out a two little mini lemon meringue pies on a plate with "Happy Anniversary" written on it in chocolate sauce. A very nice touch!
From walking into the restaurant my wife and I were made to feel the staff were doing us a favour by letting us dine at the establishment. My wife was treating me to a fine dining experience for my birthday, after being seated on a tiny table whilst the restaurant remained only 50% full for the entire time we were there. Service was rushed the sommelier wanted to take the wine order before we had even see the dining menu! The starter was average at best, we were convinced to have the rib of beef by the waiter. Unfortunately this was tough, it tasted nice but very tough and over half was left. Very disappointing.
From the minute we arrived we were made to feel special and welcome a relaxed atmosphere in this beautiful building. Both the set menu(excellent value) and the al la carte (which we chose from) were both interesting and had a good variety of choices available. Great selection of wine all staff very knowledgeable and courteous but not pushy. Although they stipulate a time frame for the table in no way were we rushed. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
Enjoyed our meal , very attentive staff . Who knew how to leave the correct amount of time between courses
We really enjoyed everything about this dinner. It was a real highlight during an already wonderful 3 day trip. Really excellent food, great environment and a small mishap handled supremely well and thoughtfully.
