Booked set menu for a special Saturday night birthday. Food was brilliant, especially the beetroot starter and the chocolate dessert. The staff were so helpful, they couldn’t do enough to help. They brought a special dessert for the birthday girl and we’re so apologetic that the free cookbook wasn’t available

Our dining experience overall was excellent. Service exceptional as was the value. We had 3/4 courses for £30! A few dishes had supplements, but even they were not expensive. Food presentation really good too, and would happily return, special price or not

Very disappointed with the vegetarian option on the set menu. Overpowering taste of mustard killed any other flavours. Have eaten in all the Marcus Wareinv restaurants and had wonderful food bug not on this occasion unfortunately.

I Love this place and been many many times to dine and just for cocktails, but I checked my bill the next day and I had been charged £3 for two glasses of tepid tap water (Thames Water’s finest!) then to be charged service on top has left a bad taste in my mouth! I have tweeted them so let’s see if I get a response

Since I last fined at Gilbert Scott it seems to have become a little meaner - bread is now charged an extra £3.40 and in the bar you have to buy nuts rather than be ‘given’ the smoked popcorn. It all felt less than generous.

From the moment we arrived the greeting was welcoming , the dining hall is stunning, the cocktail was delicious, the bread moorish and all the food tasted fantastic and was superbly presented, all the staff are friendly and approachable which is refreshing in a higher end establishment. Well done all ! We will return !

Would have been 5 star but unfortunately the 2 ladies on reception desk at the restaurant when we arrived, all be it 10 minutes early, were to say the least unhelpful bordering on rude. A shame as apart from this every other staff member we encountered were excellent, very helpful, very knowledgable and very pleasant to engage with.

Wonderful meal and very well looked after. The lighting was a little bright and tables too close together which meant you could hear every word your neighbours were saying plus tables for two were very small but overall, we had a beautiful meal and can’t wait to go back.

Been here several times before and am never disappointed. The food is brilliant - I had a salmon starter followed by pork belly which was just the right balance of tastiness and naughtiness! The sommelier is also excellent - clearly knows his stuff but is humorous with it. Service was spot on as ever. Not a place to go if you want to rush because it's good to savour the total experience.

We have a team lunch for work colleagues last Friday. The cocktails to start with were lovely, the food was delicious, the wine was good and the service was excellent. We didn't want to go back to work. We enjoyed a pleasant relaxing lunch, which was not too long though, we didn't have to wait for ages for any of the courses, it was all "just right". We were also given a signed copy of Marcus Wareing's, what a wonderful take-away!

Amazing! I want to come back again and again. I'm a huge foodie and when it comes to 'special' evenings a bit of a snob sometimes but I could not fault a single thing. Every plate was delicious even my courgette salad starter (hard to believe by the name of it but I promise as a non salad lover it was device!) the offer was very well priced and the setting felt like I was part of the rich & famous. Can not recommend enough, I will be coming back more than once.

I was surprised at all the additional costs, on a set menu, particularly the chicken.
The service was fair and the lift was difficult to use for one of my guests.

Firstly the food was excellent, however I booked the table early part of the year for a special birthday celebration as we were staying in the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. I was disappointed as I selected the three course menu inclusive of cocktails for the special rate. On arrival of the bill the cost was higher and the staff didn't recognise or acknowledge throughout the meal it was a special birthday celebration. There were other parties celebrating birthdays which the staff acknowledged. I mentioned I had confirmation via email the menu was three courses plus cocktails for £30 and we were celebrating a special birthday. The Waitress amended the bill and apologised they overlooked the birthday celebration. There was no suggestion of offer of a drink or anything just apology. Customer services is key in any restaurant and I feel this definitely was overlooked and a shame as the food was excellent.

Overpriced wine and food. Food was ok but very small portions and expensive, wine very overpriced and mediocre. It use to be a nice place, but something has happened to it. Wouldn't recommend. Definitely not going back.

A very lovely restaurant. The dining room is stunning with amazing high ceilings and interior decor. Comfy but classy all round. Good service, excellent cocktails and a great bar at the front. Food was the lunch set menu that had lots of options and came in at £35 for 3 courses, a cocktail and a cookbook - total bargain for what was very good food, particularly the fish and the desserts. Would return for sure - a great spot for a fancy lunch around the busy kings cross area.

Very good food, attractively presented; excellent service; lovely venue; special diets taken care of; not too crowded (it was Saturday lunch); soft furnishings which absorb sounds therefore good for conversation. We were five; four of us chose the £30 for set menu of 3 courses or £35 for same plus beekeeper cocktail and Marcus Waring recipe book; one went a la carte for a wheat-free and dairy-free main course only. We were all pleased. Bill came to about £50 per head, including extra side dishes, wine and service. The beekeeper cocktail was refreshing and pleasant though didn't seem to have much alcohol in it. If you want the recipe book, the £35 deal is excellent value; if you don't, take the £30 deal and choose your own drink. Highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

Excellent 3 course set meal with cocktail and meal. Great value for money...but wines very overpriced. Very good choice even on this menu. Staff and service excellent and attentive however inner tables far too close together to avoid others conversation or being pushed past at service station. Can fully recommend though as food is delicious and setting worth experiencing.

The service at this exquisite restaurant is a little slow and a little pushy. This is unfortunate because the ambiance is so great and the food is decent. Overall the prices are a little high for what you get and the menu could do with accommodating a greater range, but it's a great place to take people on business or for pleasure - and out of towners love it!
