    We dined here last October and everything was flawless. This wasn’t our experience this time. We arrived around 5:40– too soon to be seated— so we sat at a bar table— adjacent to the bar. My assumption was someone would pop over and get our drink order— however we sat there for 15 minutes totally ignored. When it was approaching 6pm I flagged over a gentleman— expressed my dissatisfaction that nobody acknowledged us— he very kindly and quickly offered us a complimentary glass of champagne which we accepted. Gracious move I acknowledge but I was still perturbed I had to actively get someone’s attention. We moved to our table— a simply breathtaking table right by the window— and we were immediately approached by our waiter— Jorge— who was very engaging and professional. I’m a vegetarian so I closely review menu options before booking a reservation. To my utter delight when I reviewed the online menu I found the same incredible pasta dish (pea and shallot) was available as the last time we dined. However when I scanned the current menu— the vegetarian main option was different. When I pointed this out I was informed the online menu is inaccurate and the only vegetarian option available is in fact the one on the menu. Of course I understand this but may I please request someone update the online menu to avoid disappointment? Despite this hiccup our food was outstanding—albeit served @ an alarming quick speed. I must admit our first experience dining here was so perfect I suppose it would be hard to replicate. Nonetheless I did have some disappointment this evening— honestly this won’t deter me from returning— just made me feel less valued as a patron. I’m never shy about letting a restaurant know if they haven’t delivered— because how else would they know? So major props for attempting to make everything better— but despite the attempts— fell short just a bit. When we return to London we will book again and hope our next experience is like our first. Thank you

    We ate on Easter Sunday. Unfortunately our food had to be returned numerous times. Initially for being luke warm. Then twice more for overcooked fish. When the main course is over £50 you would expect a better culinary experience. However, surprisingly we still had a lovely experience as the supervisor Jacopo handled the situation with professionalism his expertise in this difficult situation was exceptional. Turning the experience around. Thank you Jacopo !

    Wirklich ein rundum tolles Erlebnis! Natürlich besticht das Restaurant mit einem unvergleichlichen Panoramablick über London, aber auch Essen und Service überzeugen hier auf ganzer Linie! Besonders ist unser Kellner Alex hier hervorzuheben, der wirklich einen hervorragenden Service gemacht hat!

    Not great experience. Place is crowded and from the minute you seat, they state your table is only available to you for 90 minutes. Service is rushed, you barely finish your course and they are removing your plate. Nice views but not worth £150+ for 2 persons.
