Brilliant as always. Great menu and interesting wine list. Scallops with orangery sauce were interesting. Cod on a lobster risotto with lobster sauce was great as was the magret of duck. Gingerbread de brest dessert was excellent, even though there was no gingerbread! It was choux pastry with fruit and cream.
Lovely St Veran to drink.

Lovely food served by fantastic staff. We always love the service at The White Onion- welcoming, friendly and professional. The set lunch offers very good value for money and cocktails are brilliant. Best restaurant in Wimbledon.

Whilst there wasn’t anything intrinsically wrong with our meal, it certainly wasn’t as good as the last time we’d been there.
There was just something missing’ about the whole experience and whilst nicely presented the food was not exceptional. That said I did enjoy my stone sea bass carpaccio starter.

Excellent service and a really lovely vibe. Looked after my Mother who uses a wheelchair impeccably. Thank you to Emmanuel our waiter. Food delicious, apart from the strange broccoli accompaniment - deep-fried broccoli flowers is odd and wasn't a very nice side dish. Much better to have the broccoli fresh in our opinion. The stone bass carpaccio was amazing though!
The White Onion is fabulously good value for money. Not to be missed. Thank you - we will back again soon!

Definitely coming here again. I like it when a place can make you the drink you ask for evennif it isn't on the menu. The crispy egg with confit duck was excellent, as was the cod with crab risotto.

Another brilliant meal at our favourite restaurant! Superb service and excellent food. White onion soup (which was brown, but never mind!), foie gras terrine, duck breast, slow cooked suckling pig, chocolate fondant. All beautifully prepared and served. Washed down with an excellent Bogle Californian chardonnay.
Can't wait for our next visit!

Great food and very welcoming staff ( from Italy). Coctails were great as well. Only problem is the lack of soft furniture to dampen the noise of our over-excuberent neighbours.

We have only given 3 stars for food because of the lack of choice for our vegetarian diner.
Our table was very pleasant at the front of the restaurant but was barriered off by a glass partition from the rest of the restaurant.

Lovely dining experience. Food was very good. The only slight negative was that the cod dish didn’t have enough risotto as it felt I had more cod than risotto. Delicious though. Service was fantastic, smooth and friendly. Great restaurant. We will be back

Food was fantastic as always and the staff are always friendly. However, service was on the slow side particularly when we came to getting the bill. I guess it was because it was Valentine's Day and the restaurant was very busy, so don't let it put you off. The food and ambiance was wonderful!
