Overall really enjoyed The Glasshouse with its excellent food, cosy ambience and attentive staff. The only reason I didn’t give this 5 star was because our table wasn’t ready when we arrived however the staff were very apologetic and offered us some bubbly while we waited which definitely helped the slight annoyance. I would still recommend The Glasshouse though!

Food was excellent. Flavours were perfect and dishes were very attractive as well as extremely well thought out. Every mouthful was a delight. The rice pudding was the best dessert I've had in a long time.

The service however let the kitchen down. I was passed my dessert plate over the top of the cheese table as my partner was choosing his cheese selection as if I was in the local cafe. Very disappointing and a complete mismatch to the standards expected by chef in the kitchen.

Always excellent food (although slivers of cheese with a supplement payable, were so small they were almost transparent). Service is usually very good but one of the male servers on this occasion kept just leaning across rather than walking around which is annoying. Will definitely be back again tho.

Excellent all round! Have been meaning to come here for ages as we live locally, so delighted we made it in the end! Friendly, unimposing and impeccable service with delicious food. We both ordered a range of dishes and ingredients were seasonal, beautifully cooked and presented. A lovely atmosphere, we will definitely be coming back.

We had a delicious lunch at The Glasshouse The food was excellent and the service attentive and good. It is a set menu so if you don’t want three courses it can be expensive. We had three and although the food was more than ample, didn’t feel over full at the end, which is good.

I had high expectations which unfortunately were not met. There are too many tables in the restaurant, which means you are seated very close to neighbouring tables. The bottle of white wine we ordered (from a ridiculously long wine list) wasn’t chilled; so we had to wait while they stuck it in ice to reach satisfactory temperature. My husband requested his venison to be cooked medium to well, and it arrived rare. The food is outstanding, but it lacked atmosphere. A great place if you want to hear other peoples’ conversations.

Had lunches at the Glasshouse a few times now.
The food is really good (hence the Michelin star!) classic win a twist. Quality & fresh ingredients perfectly cooked.
The service is professionnel and friendly with a very knowledgable sommelier. The actual restaurant is nice fresh & airy in a lovely location.
I would come back again & again.
Highly recommend it. But be aware it’s a little pricey. But worth every penny. It’s a very special place & you get what you pay for. Thumps up.

Great restaurant. Attentive staff and nice ambiance. Good food and great value for a Michelin star restaurant. Desserts were rock solid and required effort to spoon. And bread and butter were cold. Only reason for 4 stars

lovely food, great service but personally I felt it was lacking in atmosphere somewhat. No music and no Christmas decorations at all, bit of a shame in the week before Christmas! first drinks were slow to arrive and quite slow to take order but then food arrived quickly and wine waiter was attentive

Outstanding meal. Hardest part was limiting the menu to three choices from all the incredible sounding options. A must visit. Harder to find two better London restaurants than the Glasshouse or their sister restaurant Chez Bruce. Service is fantastic and take advantage of the Sommelier’s recommendations. We tried a Czech Pinot which was outstanding.

Had been to the glasshouse back in 2012 and the food was fantastic and we had always planned to come back.

However, our expectations for an amazing meal were met with mediocre quality food. The wine that was provided was ok. The older waitress was very nice and the young lad on his first service was quite endearing. We didn’t take the service charge off the bill - because the staff were fine.

When you’ve said that, youve said it all! Very, very disappointing

As expected, the food was pretty much spot on though a very slight gripe would be that my scallops were a tad over cooked. Other than that we were both very pleased with the meal. The service was reasonably good but not quite the level we expected. That said, it certainly wouldn't put us off going back again.
