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.

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.

The food and service were excellent and the wine list comprehensive and sensibly priced.

The only reason not to give 5 stars in each category is because we were given a table in the corner at the very back of the restaurant. This is surrounded by hard surfaces and noise echos making hearing difficult.

We had the set lunch which offered a good choice to suit different tastes. They were able to provide gluten free bread (we had notified beforehand) and assure us that the batter on the broccoli was also gluten free. The restaurant got busy but was adhering to the current Covid rules. All in all a pleasant experience that we plan to repeat.

Booked for my daughter Birthday as we couldn't do the promised Family gathering due to restrictions and the evening was amazing!

The staff made her feel special straight away with a 'Special' menu with Happy Birthday at the top, a table in a quiet corner and a beautiful Birthday inscription on her dessert.

Food was beautiful as usual with a simpler menu. The bread is also a significant plus throughout the meal.
Service was efficient, safe (mask) and friendly.

Strongly recommend.

Lively atmosphere despite Covid restrictions in place and very professional, attentive service meant we had a wonderful evening. The food was carefully prepared to showcase fresh ingredients, wonderful flavours and very attractively presented.
They gave us excellent guidance for wine as we wanted to try something new from Italy.
Would highly recommend the White Onion. Very lucky to have such a place in the suburbs

Excellent restaurant. Second visit there. High dining. Every mouthful full of flavor. Probably doesn’t matter what you select from menu as it’s all so good. Service attentive yet not intrusive. Higher price but worth it.

We've been coming here for a number of years and it was faultless as usual. This was for our 5th wedding anniversary and the level of service was outstanding from our server Johan.

The food was delicious and the wine pairing excellent.

Felt really safe in COVID times with good spacing between tables.

Highly recommend.
