This is our one time favourite restaurant, my meal was to die for . So glad we got a table before lock down again. Will rebook as soon as they are open
Superb menu great lunch. Just love this restaurant
Excellent meal well presented and served. A good experience.
This was the first visit and have to say extremely impressed. The set menu was very good value for quality and all food was delicious.staff very helpful and friendly. The blood orange tart was amazing.
Cannot wait to go back.
Pleasant ambiance, good food and thoughtful service.
The White Onion is an excellent modern restaurant. We were made very welcome and the service was wonderful.
We really enjoyed our lunch, and will return in the New Year!
Highly recommend the cocktails!
The restaurant was well run and we felt quite safe. The background music was set at just the right level. The food was excellent but my wife’s steak was a little underdone. This was quickly rectified
Another great meal at this lovely restaurant. Really good flavours and excellent presentation and service. Lets hope it is not too long before we are allowed to go again.
Lovely food and service. Wish we had asked our waitress her name so we could add it to the review. Definitely would return. Just hope they can keep going with all the COVID-19 restrictions.
We had a really enjoyable time at the White Onion. The lunch offer is very reasonable and everything we had was delicious. Service was friendly if a little slow. We didn’t mind, as we were looking for a lazy long lunch, but just something to be aware of if you happen to be in a rush. We would definitely return!
So good to be back at the White Onion after second lockdown. We really missed this local neighbourhood gem (though the takeaway and heat at home menu/service was a great weekly highlight over the enforced "takeaway only" times).
Super tasty, well-thought out menu and the service is great. Highly recommend the "popcorn broccoli" side; it's so addictive! And definitely recommended to be brave and go "off the beaten track" with your wine choice - Pedro really knows his stuff and chooses amazing flavours at surprisingly reasonable prices.
First opportunity we have to eat out post easing of lockdown and The White Onion is our top choice! It did not disappoint. We thought the chefs had time to fine tune their skills. Hard to choose between the dishes but excellent as usual.
Fine dining at a reasonable price. The White Onion never fails to disappoint.
Wonderful restaurant with discreet, understated yet supremely efficient service, rear atmosphere and excellent food & vino. The lamb was especially sumptuous.
Outstanding food, ambience and service but a tad pricey.
Always love this place.. so cozy, welcoming, and the food is guaranteed to be amazing. Francesca the waiter was super friendly
A lovely meal with wonderful food, excellent service and no rush . We would definitely recommend and will be back! Thanks you
Excellent food and excellent staff.
It was an outstanding experience. Would definitely recommend to others. My wife and I plan to come back sometime!
Great food and service. We had a brilliant meal thank you !
Great venue, very nice food and presentation, attentive staff
This is an excellent restaurant. The food is freshly prepared and first class. Service is friendly and atmosphere relaxed. When you think of the pre-prepared rubbish you get at local gastro-pubs the value is outstanding
Consistently impressive, friendly and enjoyable. Highly recommended
Service and food perfect. Would looking forward to rebooking and now in another lockdown. Will book again for sure. The bread was amazing...
Beautiful food great service
The restaurant was clean and took Covid-19 secured measures with tables spaced apart. Staff was friendly and informative. Food tasted delicious with sufficient quantity. The 3 course lunch menu was good value for money.
Lovely food, elegantly presented by really passionate staff.
Flawless as ever.
Interesting menu, perfectly presented food with beautiful combination of flavours.
I genuinely cannot fault the White Onion.
Worth travelling to come to.
Some of the best food in the local area and always a good experience
Great food and service, it's a pricy place but you get what you pay for - would definitely recommend
I must say I have been really looking forward to trying out this restaurant and I can say I was sadly disappointed. The food was ok, not great, which is what I was expecting. Based on the price there are many other places I would rather go to. Not sure if this is just for Sunday lunch Menu and I should give it another go for dinner... still deciding. The service was really good which definitely saved our overall review
Food is always amazing and service is very smooth and attentive
The experience overall was great. My partner did think his cod (a fish that we eat a lot) was a bit too "fishy" when it's normally a more subtle white fish taste, so he struggled with the dish a bit. I tasted it myself and also thought it tasted a bit off. Other than that everything else was really nice and we would go there again for sure to try other dishes.
Delicious food and excellent service! Had a very enjoyable evening, I especially recommend the cod for the main.
The food was not only beautiful to look at, it was absolutely delicious. And the service was incredible too. So friendly and attentive
Delicious French food in a relaxed and pleasant setting with good service.
Unfortunately I was really disappointed by my experience at The White Onion. The menu simply wasn’t good enough. The gnocchi was extremely heavy and dense, the broccoli was greasy and the chocolate creme brûlée was a heavy chocolate mousse, not a brûlée with dry, heavy shortbread biscuits.
This restaurant was once a firm favourite in Wimbledon village but the standards just have dropped. Sadly I don’t think we’ll bother to return again as it’s simply not worth the money.
Had a wonderful lunch at the White Onion yesterday. Great cocktails, super delicious food and efficient but friendly service - thank you -:)
Please see my other reviews all very good. Good local restaurant.
Excellent meal once again! We love coming here - the food & service is 10/10. Cannot wait to have another lunch/dinner here.
As always another fabulous meal, this time to celebrate my sons 18th birthday and he absolutely loved it. Can’t wait to come back again very soon
