The staff were very friendly and helpful and very professional.
The food was amazing, tasty and hot.
I felt very safe there as there were partitions between the table.

The best for an ideal glamorous start to the day! Outstanding service that surfaced at all the right times, and with all safety measures in place. The dishes are crowd pleasers and the perfect portion size. Look forward to sampling more of the menu on my next visit!

Overall we had a good time but we felt that our meal was very rushed! Time allowed wasn’t enough for three courses.
Music was too loud, to the point we struggled to hear each other over the table.

Overall a very nice experience, delicious food and nice atmosphere. The ladies from the staff seemed very rude and it felt like they looked down at us.. Also we had to wait for almost 30 mins even though we had a booking.

I have been here a few times and I find that the restaurant is very consistent with outstanding service and high quality food. Dishes are presented to the standard of a fine dining restaurant and flavours always complement each other well. On this occasion I was with a friend for a meal but previously I have sat on my own at the bar and the staff are always very friendly and chatty. One of my favourite places in London for sure and great value!

No service whatsoever, bartenders busy doing a stock take, hostesses with no compassion and waiters totally oblivious. Food and ambience is always great but the rest becomes unforgiving

Second time here and would highly recommend. Food is very good, its a step above other gastro pub fare and close to fine dining for the price. Portions are also decent and desserts are excellent - try the Orbit for a bit of everything on one plate. Don't bother with the cheese board though, only disappointment.

Atmosphere is lovely, bustling and cosy at the same time with a good view over Oxford Street and drinks are reasonable as well for the location. Definitely try it, much better than your normal department store restaurant.

Ate here before and the food was fab, unfortunately this time was a different experience. Overcooked food. Cold chips, cold broccoli. Rude and surly server. Wish we had dined elsewhere.

The service was absolutely shocking from the moment we arrived. It really let the place down.
It’s such a shame because I’ve previously visited this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed.
In terms of the food and value for money no complaints.
Just goes to show how important service is just ruined the whole experience.

We overall had a lovely experience. We over stayed our table time and we were moved to a new table that was free however we were quickly given our bill without asking for it which made us feel pushed out. We even explained before hand we would like to be moved to the bar but this wasn’t offered.

I took myself to lunch , dressed up and all.
I’ve never seen the nicest staff in my life, they recommended the most delicious cocktails I’ve ever tasted.

The food OMG was just delicious especially the black cod, truffle mash etc everything I ordered was worth every penny I spent.

I booked a table for 11:15pm arrived 10 minutes early at 11:15 We asked to give us our table they said your table is not ready yet even when I have booked a table few days ago for that time to have a breakfast with my family so waited for 15 min and at 11:30 they gave us a table and took 15min that someone to come and take our orders and they gave us lunch menu when I told the waiter that we are here to have breakfast he said oh we just served breakfast till 11:30 .I told him it was your fault not us because we arrived even early he said sorry I can’t do anything.I was so angry but didn’t want to ruin our day out I said ok.so by force we ordered from lunch menu.The food was good but the service was really crap.

Once we arrived the male hostess was extremely rude, made us wait for a table and gave us a table in the back room which didn’t have as much ambience as the rest of the restaurant.
The food was good, lobster spaghetti lacked lobster but the chicken Milanese and chocolate orbit dessert were delicious. Cocktail was average and overly sweet. Overall it was a nice time but tainted by the initial rudeness of the male host.

We waited for 10 minutes while our table was being prepared which was the only negative of the evening. We had the salted sourdough which was delicious and duck curry and aubergine which were 10/10! We will be back.
