Texas Embassy Cantina

This is not a place to go to for high cuisine. It is a fun time with lots of tequila and a jumping crowd. My wife and I attended a classical music concert at St Martins and then listened to some down home Texas music with a couple we met there who were actually from Texas and had a rip roaring fun night. The food wasn't bad and the portions were fine.

Anyone who leaves a restaurant without leaving a tip is just cheap and ill mannered. Waiters and waitresses work hard dealing with customers and being on their feet all night long. They are not responsible for your food taking a long time or not being prepared right. If you have a problem like that call the manager but don't short change the wait staff

The Little French Restaurant

Small little bistro with excellent food, wonderful service and nice ambiance. The starter of sauted chiken livers was out of this world the chicken with mushrooms fantastic and my wife( all 113lbs of her) ate every bit of the sizable portion of Coq Au Van.

The creme brule was the best I have ever had on two continents . Keep this place a secret so thta it never changes

Il Convivio

Our best dinning experience in London. After catching Wicked we made our way to this restaurant with help from the Zagat guide, London and were not disappointed. The service is second to none. Incredibly well informed professiomnal staff. The wine sommelier was friendly and helpful, the head waiter was a total professional who could run any high caliber restaurant in the world. His explanation of the food and his attentiveness to everyone's dinning experience was a joy to behold. Even the hostess was warm and ingratiating. It began to rain durng our dinner and the restaurant gave us one of their huge umbrellas to take with us. After our fantastic dinner we decided that we would return here for our last night in London. The hostess remembered us instantly from 4 nights earlier. The food was mouth watering from the seared scallops in a balsamic reduction served over asparagas, to the creamy mushroom risotto or the grilled black cod with sweet grapes and the special angel hair pasta with mussels and clams to the wonderful desserts like the pinapple carpaccio.

This is a special place with a warm yet sophisticated ambience and some of the best food that defines elegant dinning

Napule

Let me say this up front. I'm from Brooklyn, New York where pizza is king and the pizza at Napule was the best I have ever eaten. I can understand that some people are disappointed by the mess that they order but anyone who orders a pizza with have a ton of junk food on it deserves what they get.

My wife and I ordered the simple margrita pizza with basil and it was superb. The quality of the cheese and sauce was excellent and the crust crispy and perfectly done.

The caprese salad with bufalo mozzarella was so creamy and tasty it was nirvana. Anyone who thinks this pizza is not great is just too use to eating Pizza Hut or Pizza Express or Pizza Whatever to truly understand the art of a perfect plain pizza.

It's just like ice cream - if you can't make a good vanilla, the rest of the flavors will probably be bad too.

We had no problem with the service after returning for a second night on a busy Friday night with no reservations, the manager remembered us from 5 days earlier and gave us a table within 15 minutes.

If you are a pizza lover, go here and have an orgasmic experince
