This restaurant is very good. The food is of excellent quality and the service is of equal caliber. The dining room is small but the tables are evenly placed and not over crowded even when the restaurant is full. It is expensive but definitely worth it on a special occasion or a date night.

Once again, a real winner, fabulous food, love the menu, it was difficult to choose as there were so many great sounding choices. The hot chocolate croustade was a highlight, absolutely delicious and unmissable!

Always delicious and exceptional food. A lovely dining experience which never fails to impress.
Quiet so you can here yourself speak. Service very good, but has been even better in the past.
Having said that one of my favourite restaurants in London. Highly recommend.

Tasting menu 5 courses so opted for wine pairing at £60 per person we got 3 glasses small measure each .
Ridiculous price for wine pairing £20 per small glass.
Total bill for 2 persons £355 way overpriced venue .

Really enjoyed our meal at the Glass House. We went for lunch and couldn't have eaten dinner after that if we'd wanted to - so full! The food was excellent, wine too and we'd definitely go back again if we were back in the area.

Service was very attentive, perhaps a bit overattentive at times but at least we weren't forgotten!

Only slight annoyance was that my coat chain was broken by the coat check. The restaurant could do with sorting out the cloakroom situation as the coats were all piled on top of each other and the weight of the others damaged mine.

Amuse bouche was oyster with additions which overpowered the taste of the oyster. In general too much fruit additions to savoury dishes. The salmon and cod tartare again was overpowered by fruit. In my view there is little synergy between raw fish and fresh fruit and the subtle flavours of the fish lost. Apple with black pudding just about worked. The main course was excellent.

We had a delicious meal with a wonderful selection from an interesting menu.

We were a little disappointed to be told on arrival that we had to choose quickly as the kitchen was closing . One of the diners was a little late and we had to order for her.
However, the meal was in the end leisurely and delicious.

It's a while since I've been to the Glasshouse and this time was better than ever. The food was very good indeed. The service a bit slow but then it's a busy time of year and we were relaxed about that. And the noise levels were fine despite being very busy. The wine list needs watching on price - like many fine dining restaurants they now bump up the prices on wines so you need to pay close attention to what you are prepared to pay. That said, our wine was excellent. All in all a great dining experience which we will repeat!

Our third annual, girls’ night out visit. It’s a treat we look forward to all year.
Not cheap, but so worth it.
The food is superb and the staff just make every moment special, from the excellent wine recommendation to the pure theatre of the cheese trolley.
Quite the best place to get for a special occasion.

The food at the Glasshouse is outstanding, brilliant varied menu and perfectly cooked and presented. Shame about the service which was sketchy, for example the staff took ages to take a wine order which then didn’t arrive until after our food. We also had to ask for top ups from the bottle which was placed well out of our reach. We went at lunchtime and although the restaurant was fairly busy when we left, the first hour was very quiet and with no music or chatter in the restaurant the atmosphere was non existent. A little music, especially so near Christmas, may have helped.
