Wife’s 60 th Birthday.
Booked no.1 and was a bit dubious as the reviews sines lockdown weren’t great but came as a recommendation so stuck with it.

Great reception from the second we arrived, coats taken and shown to our table.
Staff were very attentive and the little touches made it a great night.

8 meals all delivered hot and together. The table was silent, always a good sign when the foods good.

A complimentary glass of bubbles for the wife and a candle in a cake at the end all nice touches.

Food was deliciously, I had the Lobster Linguine, wife had the duck, the others had steak, fish etc.

Couldn’t fault the attentive service or the food.
Unfortunately we had to leave straight after the meal due to a Tube Strike as we wanted to stay and have cocktails and enjoy the ambiance.

Thanks to everyone who looked after us and made the experience so good.

We will return 100%

The fixed menu was very good value for 2 courses plus G&T! My chicken Milanese with salad was perfectly nice & treacle tart delicious. The place gets very noisy later unfortunately, so maybe not so good for a quiet conversation.

We booked dinner at 1 Lombard St. opted for the fixed price menu (3 courses and a G&T for £30). Great value at a great restaurant, or so I thought. Surprisingly, when we arrived (7.30 on a Friday evening), the restaurant wasn’t busy.

When we were seated at our table, I noticed we had only been given the al la carte menu. When I asked for the fixed price menu, the waiter audibly huffed and returned with 2 menus that he skimmed dismissively across the table towards me and walked off without comment. Clearly, he wasn’t impressed. I think that set the tone for the rest of the evening.

The Fixed Price menu offered three starters, Sardines with ‘green sauce’, Oysters or a Roast Squash Salad, an unusual selection. The mains were less taxing, but I noticed that several options (both starters and mains) required an additional supplement. For steak and chips the supplement was £14 which I felt was heavy on a £30 Fixed Price menu. Vegetables were £5.50 a portion. Bread was £4.75.

Given the choices and multiple supplements we ended up ordering from the al le carte menu along with a bottle of wine.

Our meal was punctuated by waiters attempting to repeatedly top up our wine glasses. It was both intrusive and annoying. I would estimate that we were interrupted 4 times in 10 minutes by different waiters. Despite our requests, the waiters appeared unable to understand that we simply wanted to be left alone to talk and to enjoy the food.

When I asked the waiter to recommend a dessert wine, he smirked and sneeringly suggested the Tokai. When I asked why, he was unable to explain his recommendation. At £17 a glass the Tokai was twice the price of the other wines. I think his reasoning was obvious. Upselling is clearly the name of the game.

Overall, the food was great, but the attitude of the staff and their behaviour towards us overshadowed the experience. We will not be returning.

I went during London Restaurant week and had the 3 course set menu (£ 35). There were two options per course. There was a 3rd option for the main, at an upcharge if you wanted the steak.

We were greeted with a friendly smile on arrival., though waited approx. 15-20 minutes for service us, and that was only by way of me calling a waiter over for a bottle of wine. It was not busy. I will say the gin and tonic was great, and the middle bar impressive though overall I was a little let down by 1 Lombard, as I was looking forward to eating here.

We were frankly confused by the adverts for bottomless prosessco and champagne. We never did get a good explanation of the G &T added to the advert for £30 per head 3 course meal. Please just be clearer for these promotions. There did not seem to be a head waiter. We had a delayed start on a quiet but reasonably filled half a restaurant. Amazing decor. Old bank?
The menu seemed promising. Sardines and cauliflower soup were reasonably good. The fish was fresh. The hanger steak was spot on. Very large cut. The chicken milanese was also very good. There was a nicely presented cod main.
We had some difficulty remembering to order as no waiter came for a while. Probably distracted by the tabke of young women who arrived after we did but whom got service, drinks and food well ahead of us.
So we were the last to leave I think as we then had to wait longer.
The treacle tart was accepatable, but the hazlenut and plum tart was more of a stodge with a tiny bit of hazelnut and not much plum.
Altogether a good effort in this Hix restaurant. Stick to steaks and Oysters maybe?
The bottomless proseco was a good deal at £45 per head for 3 courses. However we never did find out about why G & T was added to the board for the £30 per head. It was 15%service after all. I nearly forgot about the waitress dropping the dishes on me - an accident and luckily they were empty! No comments from anyone to us for the delays, the dessert( which was not eaten), or the accidental crockery attack as I don't tbink they had a front of house or head waiter. May benefit from such a person who should be able to reduce these mishaps and pacify customer to return or feel at least valued. I ran a restaurant before. I may not return for a while.

Food was very good and presented nicely. Disappointing that the only rose available was sweet. Some of the advice we received from the servers about dish choices was a bit ‘off’ and led to a bit of disappointment on one of the main dish choices which was a shame. Quite expensive for the dishes on offer- nonetheless an enjoyable evening and overall a nice meal.

Food was fine, but not particularly special and the set meal wasn't enough, so with extra sides it is no longer good value. Twice the waiter tried to clear our plates whilst one of us was still eating. There are better places with tastier food & better service for the same price.

Our welcome was severely lacking, no one to greet us at the door so having hung around for a couple of mins we walked in to the restaurant to make the waiter aware of our arrival. Confusion meant that we were spoken to quite fiercely by a female manager / staff member which felt very uncomfortable. Anyway as the evening went on the waiting staff were very attentive and we ended up enjoying our evening, food was very good.
