    Good was excellent, especially the Cote de boeuf and the rhubarb dessert. Service was very attentive, friendly and professional. It was quite quiet due to rail strike so atmosphere not the best but it’s a beautiful dining room.

    Disappointing. High priced for small portions. Rib eye gristle, very rare. Salad terrific. Wine very high priced. Beautiful surroundings.

    The restaurant was mostly empty which wasn’t anyines fault but there wasn’t the ambience I remember in such a large room. I’m dairy free and there was very little I could choose from. When I asked which ingredient had replaced the dairy in the risotto that I had , no-one knew. this was poor. Waiter went to kitchen to find out and came back and just told me it was dairy free. I think the meal was expensive for what it was. The risotto was nice but not good value for money . Maybe that’s why the restaurant was empty. My memory of Berners tavern was quite different to today. I won’t be rushing back.

    Brilliant experience as expected, however when our proffered wine was not available and we chose a more expensive one, I don't expect for our service change bill to go up as well...

    After having some great drinks at Berners a couple of years ago we thought we would head back to try the food. Overall the food was average at best whilst charging very premium prices. We went for the lamb sharing dish for main for £90 and was ok at best. The lamb pulled apart lovely but the flavour was lacking, It was really lacking a sauce to bring it all together. We stayed for a few drinks after and again these were very good. Overall I would not go back for food but would go back for drinks.

    Venue excellent, atmosphere great, but a pretty negative with up-selling. We were a group of 12 and on arrival offered glasses of champagne. Without the bill payer knowing, they were pushing the glasses of Dom Perignon at £55 per glass, without telling anyone the cost. We get the bill at the end of the night and 16 glasses later, the cost of the champagne is almost as much as the food.

    Exceptional service, great location and atmosphere. Food is traditional but good, a bit pricey. Drinks are good. Huge markups on the wine. Overall very nice, but feels a little bit overpriced

    Exceptional food! The bread and wild garlic butter were divine, along with the pork and pistachio pie (served table side) and the homemade focaccia with peas, goats cheese and mint. The room (once 5 townhouses and a ballroom) has stunning decor and ambience. Would definitely recommend this restaurant

    Great restaurant, luxury ambiance, service, food and drinks. The entire staff is very friendly, professional and efficient. In particular Francesco was the star of the night. He is a very knowledgeable Sommelier and his service was impeccable. He knows how to understand his customers and how to recommend wines accordingly. We had an amazing night overall and we will return for sure. Highly recommended!

    Ambiance was amazing, very elegant. Bar was beautiful and the cocktails were great. The service was very good, although we had many people waiting on us (too many) and our table appeared to get lost in the shuffle at one point. Food was very good, but not amazing. Elevated classics. Overall, we had a lovely evening.
