An excellent restaurant at a prime location, I had a business lunch where we chose standard lunch menu. All the dishes starter, main course and dessert were wonderful. The reason why I've given four-star on the food is due to the slight saltiness of the Oxx Cheek dish that I had. The Oxx Cheek was one of the best that I had very recently, due to the salt issue I've given four starts. Otherwise, the restaurant is a superb place and looking forward to going back again.

The lunch set price menu, especially without the wine option, was excellent value, considering the very high quality of food and all the amuses that came in between the courses. It was pleasantly quiet at noon, but after 1 pm became busy, and thus a bit noisier. Service was excellent apart from one minor coffee error. Altogether a memorable meal.

Excellent food and service as to be expected in a Jason Atherton Restr ambience was good but quite low key and 'understated elegance'. Service was really one of the best ive had -

Second time here. Experience just as good. Service was immaculate. Food amazing. Comes with lots of palate cleansers in between courses. Great for friend catch ups, lazy lunch... don't rush when you come here, savour the experience.

Been wanting to go here for a while and it didn’t disappoint. Was perfect from the moment they took our coats. Excellent choice of cocktails at the vibrant bar. Beautiful food choices with various amuse bouchée. Staff were fantastic, attentive without being overbearing and the whole ambience was lovely.

My second time dining here. We arrived after getting a last minute reservation through my opentable app. However they couldn't find the booking!! The reception was very friendly and made sure we were seated and made to feel welcome even though they couldn't find the reservation. The food was fantastic and being vegetarian the options were plenty. They have a lovely ambience at the restaurant and it always feels very at homely (very expensive home not mine :-))

Cocktails at the bar were excellent and worthy of 5 stars. The food was good but for us didn’t have that wow factor for most it. The amuse bouche were good but again, with the exception of the mushroom tea which was superb, a little under whelming. The cheese was also superb. The service was ok but we felt a little in attentive at times although those ordering a taster menu seemed to get much better service..... Having eaten at The Greenhouse a few months ago I felt this meal just wasn’t to the same standard whilst both were comparable in price for the set lunch menus. The Greenhouse had that wow factor for all the food and the service was impeccable. Maybe we just made the wrong choices from the lunch menu at Pollen Street and would be more impressed on a second visit but sadly first impressions count.

Fabulous place to go to for a special occasion. The Tasting Menu was delicious and the wine flight matched all the courses perfectly. The service in the restaurant was incredible, attentive but unobtrusive. We will definitely be booking to go there again.

Fantastic environment and a great service from the reception to the dessert. Several complementary pieces were served and the deer was divine. Thanks for making this Valetine's so special. Hope to come back soon!
