Nice food and great venue - unfortunately the guy in charge of the wine list was very rude - he talked without event looking at us and appeared very annoyed - I usually don’t care that much but this was a bit too much

Very beautiful space with high ceilings, various art and a very inviting looking bar. Staff were very polite and helpful. Great food and tea - Rare Tea loose leaf - the best!

The lemon sole was dry and overcooked and whilst this was replaced that meant one diner was left to eat alone. The pork pie starter was style over substance- I asked for more piccalilli than mustard but was give their standard amount of everything. Crispy chicken burger was not crispy. Overpriced and very disappointing as this place came highly recommended.

I hate to leave a negative review, I've had some lovely meals at Berners Tavern in the past... but I was surprisingly under-whelmed by our Saturday lunch visit. Limited menu, extremely pricey - service great as always, but I'd rather Dean St Townhouse any day for the same buzzy atmosphere, but far more exciting menu at much better value.

the Restaurant is tastefully decorated, however quite noisy. We had a table for two which was fairly Small but ok. We ordere the Chateaubriand, which we'e requested to be Medium, however it came back Medium raw and for this cut of meat almost chewy. Would not recommend ordering it, especially for the Price. the sides (Mac&Cheese and triple cooked Chips) were good. The Side Salat we had, was missing a Dressing. Prior to our visit i had made a few requests online, which had not been followed. after mentioning this at the end of our visit, we did not get any "gesture of appology". If you never been I'd give it a go, but don't have too high expectations. I'll certainly not be visiting again.

The service was impeccable! Bryce from Berners Tavern welcomed us and checked on us periodically to make sure everything was being taken cared off. There is a special attention given to guests and you will feel very important. We came as guests from the hotel on our honeymoon from Florida and that information was given to the restaurant who made much effort to make our dining experience enjoyable and grand!
The food was amazing. We opted for the steak for 2 that comes with a big salad. They have wonderful desserts that we were so full already we cannot eat anymore but Bryce wanted us to try this fried ice cream and he gave it to us complimentary.
The little things makes it just wonderful.

We went for Sunday lunch. The roast lunch food was average. The roast potatoes we so greasy. The vegetables were limited (just greens). There was limited cocktails on the menu. The saving grace was dessert. It was amazing. I do not mind spending money on good food but this was just not worth it for me.

Brilliant. The only downside was that we were pressured to leave the table after 2 hours. There were 7 of us so was rushed. And we weren't told about it when booking.

We had a ‘pit stop’ whilst shopping on Black Friday. We had a fantastic lunch. We could not decide what to have to drink so ordered a couple of glasses of champagne. Our waiter recommended a cocktail that he thought we would like so brought this over for us to try with 2 straws - it was fantastic!! As was the lemon sole, cooked to perfection. We were well looked after as thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Highly recommend

Disappointed. Lovely elegant dining room. The waiting staff were overly attentive. Attention should be discrete and not be so intrusive e.g. constantly interrupting with “is everything ok?”. My client complained that his breakfast tea was stone-cold (it was). His sour-dough toast was burned on the edges and he found it almost impossible to cut into. The waiter replaced the food and the pot of tea but it was frustrating. For the prices charged the experience was poor. 7/10.

The first time we were here 2 years ago, we adored! Two days ago we went very eager to have a fabulous dinner and night. We ordered salad and Chateaubriand for two.We got a piece of meat that was definitely not a Chateaubriand and thta came cold. We returned it only to receive it again in same temperature. It was then replaced by two riv eyes equally cold that could not be eaten! We left totally disappointed and we of course were not charged but only fo the salads and beverages! It was a big disappointment for the place and ambience are great...We will not visit again.

Great meal,I really can't recall having a better Mac and cheese (thought my colleague was exaggerating). Lovely place and I got a truffle with a candle in it as it was my birthday!

Only oddities were: (1) the weight of the knife that was unusually light relative to, for example, the salt and pepper shakers; and (2) a picture adjacent to me was slightly ajar, which was a little annoying for my OCD. Minor quibbles.

A lovely restaurant recommended to me a few years ago, I've been back three times since and I don't live in London, perhaps I need a new recommendation but it is very good there. The main restaurant room is an incredible sight with the architecture and the countless ornately framed photographic and art work adorning the walls.
