A few months ago I had been invited by some collegues to the Gallery and honestly I hadn't been that impressed.
I decided a week or two ago to come back anyway, thinking things could only get better compared to last.
And I actually go surprised... in a good way.
Our starters (a tuna sashimi and tuna cream, some kind of beetroot jelly and ice cream and 3 types of ham) were both delicious. Especially the beetroot even though I don't like particularly beetroot!
Our mains (a Lobster with beans and watermelon, some veal made into meatballs with spices) were very intersting too.
The night went so well, we were looked after very well by our waiter, very polite and he made us feel very comfortable looking after us so well.
We went to the bar afterwards where we were advised some cocktails which were a great way to finish the night.
This night has really changed my whole views on Sketch and I have now for sure added it on my list of places to go to for a nice dinner.

A friend of mine took me to the Gallery a weeks ago and to be honest I was a little reluctant after having read some mixed reviews about this place on this site.
What I have to say is that the dinner was lovely. We were suggested some cocktails on arrival which were very original, nothing like I have tasted before...
Foodwise the menu I have to admit had a lot of things I could have chosen and was very undecisive. The waiter was able to take me through the menu and recommend a few dishes which I may have liked.
For starter I chose some seabream with Guacamole which was a very nice starter. Very tasty.
For the main I chose the Seabass which was very well prepared. Just cooked to perfection with a smooth mash potatoe and a light touch of smokiness from some haddock...
Unfortunately I didn't have anymore space for some dessert but my friend's fruit salad looked very nice.
I have to say I had a very nice time, the waiter was very helpful and knowledgeable but never intrusive. Very friendly too.
This has to be for me one of the best experience I had in London in many years and can't wait to return soon.
