The Glasshouse Ratings and Reviews
A relaxed and lovely neighbourhood gem for the special get together or even just a mid-week meal. The staff are welcoming, attentive and helpful. The sommelier encouraged being asked challenging questions put to her about the recommended matching dessert wine.
I have been a number of times to the restaurant and it is never disappointing. Saturday was exceptionally good and the food wonderful - it really was sensationally pleasing on the palate.
The highlight was the cheese board and the lady (sorry I missed her name) who presented it to us. She loved her cheese and so did we. She served it with knowledge, enthusiasm and passion. It was the first cheese performance at that level I have ever had. It was worthy of an Oscar - and I mean that positively in every way.
Eat everything, enjoy everything but really rejoice when the cheese arrives. You are lucky to be in the presence of "La Femme de Fromage supreme". Bonne appétit to all.
A special occasion dinner for my husband's birthday. The food was amazing - fine attention to detail, definitely recommend the egg yolk raviolo. The staff were friendly and attentive, the ambience was great as it wasn't too loud that we couldn't have a good conversation.
The service and food were impeccable. My daughter and I loved every course. The sommelier gave excellent advice about choosing wine. The food looked beautiful and tasted even better. The portions were just right as we managed 3 courses without feeling we had eaten too much. We will definitely go back
Classic training is obvious in every aspect of this restaurant yet it's combination of perfect, seasonal ingredients are refreshing, adventuresome and delicious. Burrata with tomatoes, olives and the thinnest slice of fresh, white peach? Amazing. Poussin with a perfectly crisp/tender texture and Dover plaice- perfectly sized portions, paired with wines suggested by a very knowledgeable sommelier for mains and then desserts- of the exact size and combination of rich, savory and bright flavours- this was a dinner to remember! If you go the the Kew Gardens or Wimbledon you must visit this restaurant!
Great evening at the Glasshouse. Took the tasting menu - great range of dishes, served at a good pace. Look out for the interesting cheese selection. Only feedback (given that the service was otherwise excellent) - it would be great if dishes were explained when served.
