your comments review this restaurant and win a bottle of champagne
I wanted to take my partner out for a romantic dinner date; having eaten recently at Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley, Artisan at The Westbury, Galvins at Windows and Tom Aikens I wanted to go for a bit of old school English sophistication. And I am very glad that I did. This was easily the best experience of the five; absolutely top drawer from the glass of champagne in the Connaught Bar to start with through to the doorman arranging a taxi at the end of our evening.
The appetizers were interesting; the selection of breads delicious. I went for the langoustine which was a delight. My partner went for the line caught calamari. For my main course, I chose the venision which was exquisite; cooked to absolute perfection. My partner went for the sea bass which was equally good.
The level of sevice was impeccable; attentive but not overly fussy. Tables were spaced sufficiently far apart to allow intimate conversation. Tableware was design led but in keeping with the grandeur of the room.
I cannot praise the quality of the experience highly enough. This was the best restaurant experience in London this year with food which was quite the equal of what MW at The Berkeley is doing.
