We arrived an hour earlier than the booking and they were able to give us the table which was good. We had the set menu with a complimentary cocktail. All was very good. I had steak as the main and it was nice and tender. Would definitely go again

This was my 4th visit and in every way was as good as the 1st. The food is modern, inventive and beautiful to look at. Service is attentive but never feels intrusive. The surroundings are magnificent. My only slight disappointment is that the wine list, whilst exhaustive focusses too much on fine wine, rather than more affordable everyday wines.

Food was excellent but 2 of us ordered gluten free. Read and twice when this came to the table it was inedible. The first time it tasted though it had been blasted with a blow torch. The second was good, the third was dry like cardboard and the fourth was edible. For the price and the quality of the establishment that was not acceptable!

We dined in style for my friends birthday after securing a good 3 course meal with aperitif. Otherwise it would have been too expensive for our pockets. It was however a lovely experience as it is such an iconic place and the restaurant was charming. Although lighting low and atmospheric we had to use our mobile with torch facility to be able to read the menu choices. But all part of the fun I guess. Will definitely recommend.

We had a lovely reunion meal here and were well looked after. We had the menu offer of £30 for 3 courses and aperitif which was good value. The lamb chop was superbly cooked and the Bon Bon with it delicious . All flavours were excellent and variety of choices on set menu was good.

Very good food, service and ambience, spoiled a little by being placed inches away from a business foursome who talked loudly about problem issues with their project ( Crossrail) making it impossible to create and enjoy an intimate experience our special occasion.

We have just eaten at The Gilbert Scott for our 44th wedding anniversary. We have dined here before on several occasions and loved it but tonight was a huge disappointment . My husband’s seared mackerel starter was really under seasoned and was full of bones and my crab salad starter very ordinary. To the Main Course - my husbands seared pollack was cold and really didn’t pair well with the portobello mushroom - - my belly pork was not cooked well and the crackling was not crisp - fat not rendered well. The triple cooked chips were however excellent - the star of the meal. The staff were attentive and apologised for the bones in the mackerel. I really am so surprised at the poor quality of this meal. What has happened at The Gilbert Scott? A very expensive , very poor quality dinner!

Gilbert Scott was so crowded that it was not a pleasant experience this time. The last time we went, we had a booth and a very nice dinner. For this dinner we were seated in the middle tables. We were so close to another table that we were uncomfortable. Service was good until the end of dinner. We waited and waited for our check. Finally we got up and asked a staff member for help with getting the check as our server had disappeared. We definitely will not go back unless we are assured of a booth and even then I am not sure that we will want to go.

The special menu for 30 pounds was exceptional value. The food was truly delicious - the salmon starter was very good and not too rich, and the grilled lamb chop was cooked perfectly, with a Middle Eastern spiced ball of chopped lamb. The vanilla soft with honeycomb was too delicious to give a miss.

First time visit - £30 3course+cocktail deal - two were disappointed with portion size (lamb chop) but my sea bream was excellent. Wine list is a tad pricey and sommelier is VERY keen ... too keen. helpful, but bit intrusive. Cocktail was minute and nothing special sadly.

Simply marvellous meal. Every mouthful was sheer joy. The starter of smoked salmon was accompanied by bursts of zingy lime cucumber, amazing, and the main course consisting of incredibly fresh fish was cooked to absolute perfection and accompanied by a sauce that was light and rich at the same time, but not in the least overwhelming. Superb.

Michael, the chef, should be commended on all levels.

Brought my mother for our last night in London, and had a perfect time! White glove service, a delicious welcome cocktail, wonderful wine suggestions from the som and food suggestions from the servers, and incredible value for the quality. The room is also stunning. I do fine dining fairly regularly but my mum does not and she was very happy with the experience - fine service at brasserie prices. We were there early (pre-theatre) and it was very quiet - if you want more ambiance I'd suggest visiting later. Thanks for an amazing meal!

Nice food and lovely location. After food was ordered we had to ask several times about ordering wine and then when it came to paying, two separate people came with card machines. Perhaps the service needs a little coordination. Other than that, great night!

I was slightly underwhelmed by everything. We had to ask for the wine menu and our wine then only arrived with our starters. We had to ask for the aperitif with the Top Table offer and were effectively told off for not confirming we had the offer when we confirmed the reservation!!! Really!!
The food was good but having wanted to come to this place for ages it wasn’t quite what I expected and I’ve had much better food and experiences in seemingly less reputable places. Not at all what I had hoped it would be.

The special memu was very good value and all the dishes were tasty and at least a little bit special. The complementary apertif was a nice touch. I was disappoinbted that the default by the glass size for wine, across the menu, is 125ml. I believe 175ml is a more reasonable size and found it hard to believe that I was paying more for a sixth of a bottle of wine than I would pay for a bottle on a Friday night (minimum price of £9). this detracted from the expereince somewhat, but the atmosphere was lovely and I would go again for the food.

We had the offer of £30 for three courses and an apperatif. The menu choice was three of each course - just about an adequate range. The courgette starter was great as was the panna cotta and fruits of forest desert. Main course lamb was tasty if on the small side but the vegetable was a great disappointment - broccoli on the menu turned out to be a faint smudge of green liquid. Proper crisp green vegetable please. The wine is exorbitantly expensive so we stuck to water. The service was excellent. We were moved from a table under a speaker - very noisy - to a quieter table and served helpfully and promptly.
