We like Greenhouse a lot. Its our great go to restaurant when we are in London with friends to show them a dining experience, Paris its Le Cinq - but we live in Melbourne Australia. We have been to Greenhouse 3 times in the last 3 years. Le Cinq more. We compare it to other London rated restaurants and are now going back there every time we are in London. We generally take the tasting menu. The wine list is very good but I concentrate on the French Burgundies White and Italian Red Super Tuscan. We did a taste off of Sassicaia 2005 I think and Antinori Solaia 2006 or 2008. They were both great but the Sassicaia won the day according to our friend. I called it a draw. Yep this is a complete tossers review. Very happy.

Slightly disappointed this time . Previously been to the greenhouse a couple of times but this time the service was poor . We waited over 45 mins just to receive a menu and the initial drinks took a while to come . Some parts of the menu are not changing ( or very little ) and whilst I appreciate the chef has his favourites ,variety and new experience is anticipated by some . Some of the additional supplements on the menu seem extreme and therefore slightly limit choice
Despite my comments I have a fondness for this place and would still return . Be prepared for a 300-600 spend for two

An excellent restaurant in an extremely pleasant setting. Good food, good wine. Some excellent members of staff, but a few rather pretentious ones too.
The discovery menu is heavy going, and not really worth the £145 price tag. That said the food quality was very high. Wonderful ambience, well decorated and perfectly lit.
Overall a very enjoyable experience. People looking for value for money should look elsewhere, but for those looking for class, elegance and prestige, this place is a must visit.

Food was a little salty for my liking, but presentation and service was outstanding! The place was lovely and there was plenty of space between the tables.

Also if you are looking to drive there parking around there is mainly residents permit, so you’ll have park a few streets away and walk down.

Overall, was really delicious and they catered around things I don’t like eating, so that was a great surprise

I wanted to treat a friend I hadn't seen on a long time to a leisurely, elegant lunch. And this was perfect. The service was so attentive and kind, the recommendations appropriate and specific. And the set lunch would have been good value hadnwe not gone slightly overboard on champagne. The dishes were creative, particularly for a set lunch. It might have been a set lunch, but it offered a very good glimpse of what a more elaborate meal might have been. I intend to find out! A lovely, restful place. Élégant and sparse (gorgeous Bernardeau contemporary china) but not cold. Designed to feel like an oasis of a calm, and it works.

I arrived early and was warmly greeted by a lovely young lady which made me feel very much at home, though this is just my second visit.

I was at the Greenhouse with another good friend, also from Singapore to celebrate his birthday. We were both in Europe, for different reasons, but the stars were aligned to allow us to meet up for one evening in London. I took the opportunity to organize a surprise Birthday Dinner for him.

We had a wonderful evening with an excellent menu paired with two bottles of great wines, albeit with expert advice from the Sommelier Matthieu (I hope I got his name right). Matthieu made us feel very at home and well serviced.

Thank you very much for the memorable evening at the Greenhouse. I look forward to coming back to the Greenhouse when I next come to London.

My friend and I made choices from the lunch menu. There were plenty of tasty additional 'amuse bouche' treats too and the meal was just the right size for lunch, not too heavy. It was not too busy so we were able to linger as we wanted. I thought it was a delicious menu: we both had the razor clam starter, then I had the pollock and my friend had the roe deer venison. It was food I could not have prepared at home. Well worth a visit.

We didn’t actually get into the greenhouse even though we had a confirmed booking. So I can’t rate the experience. It was a little suspicious that they had “technical issues” and the restaurant was supposedly closed. However they got us into their sister restaurant the Square at half price and it was incredible, loved every dish. The atmosphere was modern and while the service started out a little stuffy it warmed up and turned into a great night.

We ate the fixed price lunch (£40 for 3 courses). The food itself was interesting with unusual combinations of ingredients and well executed. There were several surprises that were included in the form of amuse bouches etc which was very generous. The service was excellent and of course the wine list of 3500 wines (I didn't count them) is exceptional. My guest chose an unusual Patagonian Pinot Noir, which we enjoyed, and which complemented the various dishes very well--considering we had a mix of fish (hake) and lamb as main courses.

The date was special, so we decided to go for the discovery menu - £145 pp.

The pigeon was fantastic. It was the highlight of the evening. But that’s the only highlight if I’m being honest.

Smoke ell was too salty, fish needs a hint more salt. Crab meat had a bit of shell in it which almost cracked my tooth off. The pigeon feels like a pre-main to me but it was the actual main, followed by an average cheese dish. I explain my disappointment to the meal, but even the complimentary cake they gave me was average.

You can criticise me of being too picky. But being a 2 stars means you are ready to be judged at any time. Nevertheless, the price also pushed up one’s expectation. Being average means being in a danger zone sometime.

The idea I have is that, the restaurant is trying very hard to make its 3rd star. You tried to showcase all the techniques on one dish, good! But make sure don’t miss the fundamental point - the flavor.

Overall, it was an absolutely fantastic meal. The fish dish and veal were the most impressive ones. Unfortunately, I found one small shell of crab in starter. The only thing waiter did was to say sorry without any material compensation.
