We had a fantastic evening at The White Onion. We had a table in the window which was great and the staff were lovely, professional and extremely helpful. It was my wife's birthday and they added some special touches including a personalised menu. The food and wine were outstanding. We had scallops, venison terrine, duck magret and monkfish (plus a divine chocolate mousse) and it was all pretty much perfect.

Wimbledon Village is a great place for a night out and The White Onion is a real gem at its heart.

Excellent food - some very creative dishes all done very well. Service could have been slightly more attentive towards the end but no real complaints. Definitely on our go-to list.

Excellent food and excellent staff and service. The only slight quibble - and it may be personal taste - but the dishes sometimes have too many ingredients and tastes on the same plate. May need to be slightly less creative maybe. Otherwise a very nice place to eat. Recommended.

I took my neighbour for a treat for her 87th Birthday. The staff printed out a Menu with 'Happy Birthday, Jean' at the top, and my friend was delighted with such a charming welcome.

The food was exquisite, a very pleasant place to lunch, and we'll be back again soon.

Wonderfully attentive and knowledgeable staff, excellent menu, however I had to send my beef main dish back as it was basically inedible. The rest of my party thoroughly enjoyed their meal.
To give the restaurant it’s due they replaced the dish and did not charge us, however in the interim the side dishes had gone cold and there was no attempt to complete the whole meal.

Another excellent meal at one of our favourite restaurants. Service was attentive, friendly and efficient. The menu was brilliant. We had scallops oven-baked with cauliflower and miso puree and artichoke soup. Mains were veal sirloin with sauerkraut, which was tasty and unusual, and fillet steak with braised ox cheek. Sides of cumin buttered carrots and creamy mash. Chocolate fondants and ice cream for desert. The wine list is brilliant too - a lovely Grace Ridge Californian pinot noir went down a treat.

This was our second visit to the White Onion and the food was even better this time than the last. I chose the duck egg starter because it was unusual. It was delicious and I would definitely have it again. My main was beef. It was thinly sliced and rare, which was perfect. The flavour combinations with it just added to my enjoyment. The set menu is very good value and shows plenty of imagination, which a lot of restaurants fail to give. Excellent experience!

Really happy to have discovered this restaurant in Wimbledon. I took my parents there for Sunday lunch and we all enjoyed both the food which was delicious and the great service. It also wasn't expensive given the quality of both. We shall definitely return.

We went for our anniversary and it was well worth the 45 minute drive.
The service was impeccable, the food was amazing and the cocktails were fantastic.
It's not cheap but it was well worth it.
We will definitely be returning.

The restaurant is brilliant. We have now eaten there many times and have never had a bad meal. The service is excellent, very attentive and efficient. The restaurant manager remembered my wine choice from two months ago! The menu is always interesting, usually two meat, two fish and a veggie main courses. Lovely deserts. Wine list stretches from affordable to great and expensive.Very interesting "off the beaten track" selections.

Great find! Hadn't been here before but wanted to take friend visiting from Edinburgh somewhere 'special' and the White Onion did not disappoint.

Warm welcome although we'd arrived a bit early, had asked for quiet table and request had been dealt with perfectly.

Food was lovely, service attentive and the atmosphere was buzzy. Will certainly return to try some of the dishes we didn't have this time.

The service and food was perfect, as like it was before. Beautiful food - fresh and the most amazing ingredients put together. Lovely service. Young girl and manager was very attentive and left us to talk. No rushing and filled up the wine glasses just perfectly. Highly recommend this restaurant. Worth the money 100%!

Lovely lunch at White Onion. The artichoke veloute was incredible to start. Catch of the day was cod, which was excellent and my mother had a delicious squash souffle. Deserts were also fantastic. Excellent value. We will be back!
