I have only ever eaten here once but do come here regularly for drinks, particularly during happy hour (16:30-19:30) where the cocktails are loovly and cheap. The food was OK, and was exactly what i expected from an American style restaurant. When i come for drinks I always find the waiters/waitresses friendly and fast, and the dimmed lights and background music give the place the kind of atmosphere i like. One negative comment I could make is that the staff greeting at the door could look less miserable!

China Rendez Vous

This place was great 5 years ago. The good service is still the same and so is the very quiet and relaxing atmosphere, but they obviously hired new chefs as the food is now yucky plus they've hiked the prices quite a bit. For a more enjoyable meal, I would suggest eating at Feng Wei in New Cavendish Street.

The Providores & Tapa Room

A place to avoid unless you're a posh B*****D and have loads of cash to waste. Unfriendly staff, and everything you purchase is overpriced. Would rather get a baguette and some cheese from Waitrose and eat standing in the high street.

Carluccio's (St Christopher's Place)

Great atmosphere (to the previous reviewer: of course it's going to be noisy if there are over 100 people eating there!). The food has always been good when i've been there and the waiters/waitresses always quick and polite. However, there is on criteria you could add, which is "cleanliness": I would give it a 3 out of 10 as i often find my cutlery and plate in a disgusting state, plus they need to hire a toilet cleaner. I won't go into details about the toilets!

Hellenic Restaurant

The good thing about this place is the friendly service you get from the waiters. Apart from that, the decor is awful (but still clean enough!) and this place needs some serious refurbishing. The food was even worse! Aren't the Greeks supposed to be good at making Houmous. Theirs was tasteless and I even felt embarrassed to put salt and pepper on it. I should have bought my Houmous from Waitrose or Tescos and eaten at home! Quite overpriced too for the "prison" food that's offered.
