your comments review this restaurant and win a bottle of champagne
A friend and I decided to try 1 Lombard Street for breakfast this morning and were left feeling underwhelmed and undervalued.
Firstly, a few positives: Nice decor, good location, friendly enough staff
Secondly, the negatives: Despite being first in the building we were shown to the worst table with waiters and staff constantly bustling past. We asked to move but were told it was the only table available. When we had finished our meal and left the restaurant it was still less than half full.
Given the restaurant was empty for the first twenty minutes the service from the eight-or-so staff was slow and inattentive. The food was acceptable but nothing spectacular and the servings small. Having asked for the bill twice it took over ten minutes to arrive (for a city breakfast spot is really not good enough).
Overall we felt underwhelmed, undervalued, and that this establishment could do so much better.
We will certainly not be rushing back.
