£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
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.
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!
Thank you for a memorable anniversary lunch. We were glad to keep cool on a very hot day.
Very disappointed. The meal was good but not excellent, the service was brisk and clinical and watching some of the waiting staff have a full on row during service, unprofessional. To be fair their argument summed up the atmosphere in the restaurant which was, not surprisingly, half empty on a Saturday night.
The wine list: I have never come across a wine list that lists and prices their wines as carafes (1/2 Bottle) and not bottles. It is NOT clearly stated and not a practice I have come across in any other restaurant- Michelin starred or otherwise. This practice is obviously in place to extract as much money from your guests (tourists) as possible. It is unacceptable and underhand. We will not be coming back.
A very good restaurant with a perfect sercice. Magnificent location.
Excellent ambience as always with friendly staff and excellent food. We will be back!
The food was great. The service was very polite, but a little slow. Some of my guests had to leave before the end of the meal.
We had to be in London to apply for visas. The day had been difficult but the Gilbert Scott restaurant was so beautiful and calm. The staff were welcoming and it was obvious that they just wanted us to feel welcome and enjoy the evening and the food.
a good choice of dishes on the menu, friendly and efficient staff, and nice atmosphere in an amazing setting
Great food and great service in a beautiful room. The perfect place for a quiet get-together with an old friend.
Superb food, wines and service in a magnificent, restful venue and yet only a few steps away from busy central London.
Love love love this restaurant. It’s not cheap but the quality is high, the choice is great (vegan options available) and the service is A*. The Aberdeen Angus roast beef (only available as Dunday lunch) was superb. Everything else lovely including staff.
Lovely atmosphere with very good food and service. Worth it for a special occasion.
Second visit, this time for my birthday, we had a very enjoyable meal, made all the better by exemplary service by both our waitress and wine waiter. The food was very good, feeding my passion for beetroot and my partner’s for crab (albeit with a very reasonable supplement. Our mains, sea bream and pork belly were beautifully cooked and presented and both sides, green beans and chips excellent. The desserts were very good, if totally unnecessary, and I received a very nice birthday surprise. Overall a delicious lunch and we have vowed to return for a visit to the chef’s table.
We went with a client and all settled for the set menu which was brilliant value. Three courses for £30. The bread was just delicious. I could have eaten that all night. Portions were just the right size – for me anyway. I don't always go for the dessert as they can be disappointing but we ordered one of each and all shared. It was impossible to pick a favourite as they were all gorgeous. Service was exactly what you would expect from an establishment like this. All in all pretty damn good!
Disappointed overall. Food was good but not as special as the prices and hype would suggest. Room is not as special as the rest of the old part of the St Pancras hotel in decorative terms. Tables very close together and air conditioning blasting near windows means diners with their back to the window are in a draught, noticed lot so people refusing to sit there, making the seat back higher would deflect the draught over their heads.
Wait staff good but not exceptional and some seemed to be new.
We loved the relaxed feel of the restaurant and the atmosphere matched. We didn’t feel rushed during our lunch, with all the staff friendly and helpful. The food was first class and will definitely be returning.
Great venue for a business lunch, staff attentive but not over bearing. Beautiful building and the food was fantastic.
Perhaps I shouldn’t dine out on what Is considered a special occasion ‘fathers day’ which seemed to throw the restaurant into a tizz!!
Good value, friendly service food was good but to waiting 30 mins for a booked table when they are so militant about how long I have when they choose to sit me on time!!! A bit rich if you ask me. Not even a glass of wine comped for the wait!!!
Second time to the Gilbert Scott everything was excellent except although the food was wonderful to taste it was cold not good for a roast dinner even the plate was cold. We did mention this but did return food as we were hungry NO action taken by the restaurant to compensate
Amazing food and decor. The pigs head starter was delicious and so was the lamb shoulder. Will definitely be dining here again
My friend and I had an absolutely perfect
evening at the Gilbert Scott to celebrate his birthday. The staff were extremely attentive and very knowledgable and the restaurant was beautiful. The food was exceptional and I’m already looking forward to finding another occasion to return!
The Gilbert Scott is a treat for all the senses. The food is splendid, and the ambiance has a magical elegance to it. A starter of pig's head croquettes was unctuous, crispy, and a wonderful combination of crunchy and oozing textures. My main, turbot with brown butter hollandaise, fennel and crispy whitebait, was simple, uncomplicated, and bold: it's not every day you get whole whitebait in London! Dessert were strawberries with mascarpone and shortbread, ending the sense of a holiday Mediterranean seafood dinner.
The strongest point in the meal was no doubt the starter, with the other courses delivering a linear simplicity that delivers what the ingredients intend to, but with few unexpected twists or turns to rather conventional preparations. Still, if you're on the market for classic, well executed meal in elegant settings, this is the place to visit.
I went with my Dad for my birthday lunch and had a wonderful experience here! I will definitely go back with my husband & for afternoon tea I hope. The service was faultless, the food wonderful and the architecture of the building is very impressive, but being so grand, it is not intimate or cosy, which I would prefer on a date. Love it though and can't wait to return!
Exceptionally high quality food (the pork belly was divine) and cocktails. Great atmosphere and service, as usual.
My husband and I travel frequently to London, and we almost always stay at the St. Pancras. I have dined at The Gilbert Scott on many occasions, and we were both very disappointed in our meal last Sunday evening. Our service was a mixture of both lazy and rushed. Lazy, in that we were rarely approached by wait staff (or the sommelier, who also appeared to be doing double duty as floor manager); and rushed, in that we had wine and starters whisked to our table before we’d even finished our cocktails, mains hurried over before we’d barely cleaned our starter plates (and in that case, lazy came back into play, as we were already well into the course before our wine was delivered); and a general feeling that the sooner we left our table, the better. This was an astonishing departure from the quality of service we’ve always experienced at TGS previously, and we were quite surprised. It was a Sunday evening, and not busy.
The food was, as always, delicious and beautifully presented – the kitchen was on the ball. But our enjoyment of it was diminished by a sense that the front of house wasn’t that interested in our experience. By contrast, when we decamped for drinks next door in George’s Bar (sister establishment), we were greeted as welcome guests and served with enthusiasm and professionalism.
Finally, when I booked the reservation, I’d indicated that there was a birthday – my husband’s. I didn’t mention it again when we arrived (as I didn’t want to tip off my husband that there might be a surprise at the end of the meal), so perhaps that’s my mistake. In any case, no one ever inquired about a birthday, brought a dessert, nothing (I have celebrated a birthday at TGS previously, and a small sweet was brought at the end of the meal). If I should have confirmed upon arrival, that is my mistake. But given the whole of our experience, this just added to the feeling that no one was very interested in our experience there. A disappointing birthday for my husband, overall.
WHAT A BUILDING AND SUCH A GREAT EXPERIENCE AND GREAT FOOD.
It was a special birthday treat which we very much enjoyed
We were shown to our table at around 20.30, the Waitress then came to take our drinks order, we then ordered our food, our starter arrived 20 minutes later, we then had to wait around 50 minutes for our main course, we did not order deserts because it was to late and the waiting had taken the shine of what should have been a happy experience for my wife. My wife had always wanted to eat at a Marcus Waring restaurant and travelled from the West Midlands with a stopover at the Pullman Hotel just to be close to the restaurant. The experience totally spoiled my wife’s birthday, the manager was very apologetic but only took the service charge off the bill, we were not even offered a drink.
Very very disappointing.
The compensation offered is irrelevant, the occasion was marred.
Overall food was very good, service and attention was excellent.
I was accompanied by a foodie on a business dinner and she felt it didn't hit her high standards. I had a very enjoyable evening.
had gone there for my partner's birthday and the staff was super sweet to us, and even got a lil dessert with a candle as a complimentary birthday treat.
We have had the set menu lunch before but it was even better this time. The cocktail was delicious even though I wouldn't like the ingredients separately! All of the three courses were as good as they could be & I would have to recommend the caramelised banana soft serve ice cream.
Part of our offer included the cookery book, which some reviews said hadn't been available. We had mentioned it when we arrived and again when we paid the bill. After quite a wait we were brought one copy and were told it was one per table. We said it was one per diner and another book was found. It was my friend's birthday and we were both very pleased with our meal and also the books. We will definitely be going again.
