I took my wife to BBC for brunch as a surprise treat for Mother’s Day. This was the first time for both of us. We were both very pleased and impressed! Everything was excellent: all of the exceptionally friendly and attentive staff, the wonderful outdoor ambience, and the very tasty, special Mother’s Day menu! We will be back for dinner in the near future. Job well done, BBC!
The rooftop was just excellent. Perfect weather of course, but the excellent service was what made the evening so excellent
My friend and I were greeted by several staff including Freddie, the GM, and seated at a beautiful corner table on the rooftop. Our server was friendly and attentive. We both ordered the Halibut and it was delicious! I highly recommend the BBC!
This was our first time and we really enjoyed our rooftop dinner.
Took forever to receive first drinks. Service slow and inconsistent
We love BBC. We had a nice corner table. A very good server. All the food was very good with the exception of my salmon, which was under-cooked. Delivery of our main courses was slow, but we were having a good time - happy to be out in a favorite restaurant.
British Bankers Club continues to be great. Their rooftop outdoor seating area is wonderful - almost like being inside, but actually outside, so safer during these difficult times. Service is great, and the food is good - my girlfriend and I enjoy eating here on a regular basis.
Lovely rooftop area with great service and ambiance.
Excellent service and food! The breeze was cool but the heaters kept us warm. We will return!
I love the rooftop, it’s heated but bring a jacket. The fries are amazing and the tar tar. It’s not always consistent the menu isn’t solid, where it doesn’t always tastes the same every time. I’d give it a higher rating if it was consistent.
I'm still not tired of having Maine lobsters here. The staff expect us, and know what most of our order is as soon as we walk in.
Ate on the roof. Really fun. Wine not a great asset but otherwise terrific place
Waiter was very confused how to operate his mobile order taking device. Really struggled. Needs training.
Very good surprise, excellent food !!
It was great! Great food, service etc. Overall great experience.
The waiter was extremely rude seemed miffed that we wanted anything but the food was amazing
Like many others, I have been by this place many times/for years, but never visited. It was worth the trip. Service and the atmosphere were the stars. Highly recommend sitting on the rooftop (reservations a necessity)--there is outdoor dining at ground level, but it is not the same as the rooftop. Rooftop dinner menu is simple, but with sufficient continental menu choices. Oysters are a real winner as are some of the desserts. Underground parking nearby makes this place even more appealing.
Our waiter was useless. Service was rushed and we had to ask 3 ties for another round of drinks. Waiter knew we were celebrating a birthday and did nothing for the birthday person.
Food was mediocre. Grilled lobster was overcooked. Starters were good though.
Overall a disappointing experience.
We hadn't been back to the British Bankers club for years, but went there for an anniversary dinner. Couldn't have been more pleased. We dined on the roof and it was pleasant with abundant heaters. The staff was so attentive and friendly and the food delicious. We will go back.
The food is creative, delicious, and beautifully presented. The service is always terrific - helpful, attentive, knowledgeable and this time it was Matthew who was especially gracious. The plaza is a nice place for outdoor dining, though no match for the magical rooftop terrace! BBC is always a treat.
Very limited menu. 4 out of 5 of us ordered the same thing which was very good. Breakfast breads were delicious. Took a very long time to get some salt and pepper and ketchup. There was really nothing special for the Easter holiday.
We had Easter brunch there with my Husband and little one. We felt extremely safe dinning outside especially still being a Pandemic. The waiter was thoughtful and the dinning experience was great.
Beyond fabulous from starting with unique cocktails,satisfying entrees and ending with a sublime chocolate dessert, all guided by courteous and knowledgeable staff- what a great evening!
The rooftop is awesome, especially on a spring evening. Mathew was outstanding - friendly and attentive. The filet was excellent and the drinks were great. Will def go again.
Bartender was rude and made poor drinks
I came for a girls brunch and had a blast. Server was amazing and great customer service. I live right around the corner and this restaurant is a family staple. I’ll be back soon.
Great, comfortable outdoor space and excellent food.
Great experience. Great drinks, very good food, great service and terrific setting.
A fun restaurant with a lovely rooftop outdoor dinning space.
Everything was good except the dessert pavlova was a disaster. They did not even take it off of our final bill even though we sent back the entire dessert and gave the feedback how bad it was. Food was great but dessert is mainly gelato and this terrible pavlova. They could have had common desserts - tiramisu or panna cotta.
Had a fantastic dinner on the rooftop. Food was excellent and we enjoyed ourselves.
Such a gem in Menlo Park! Love everything about the place
Had a great time with friends at BBC. Food and drinks were fantastic. Seems like the food was kicked up a notch since the last time we were there.
BBC advertised their special St Patrick's Day menu. When we arrive for our reservation, we were told the special was no longer available. Main reason we went was for the special menu.. We were told that almost all of their restaurants had run out. How can you offer a once a year event and fall short ? Rather than brisket I had to settle for a hamburger.
Hoped for rooftop when on line reservation made, ended up on concrete looking at busy El Camino traffic and told we would have to have booked four days sooner to get rooftop. Not clear how to specify rooftop with online reservation system. Portable heater not enough, super cold. Waiter overwhelmed and not experienced. Approached table nearly 15 min after seated, not familiar with the menu. Drinks and apps brought within 25 min, but did not take our dinner order until we had been seated for one full hour. Food came 35 min later for three of us. Exceptional food, horrible service, awful outdoor freezing "ambiance" at the same premium cost as indoor or rooftop seating would have been. Food worth the cost, but value of experience was definitely not. Two hours sitting in the cold for 20 minutes eating time.
Hello, my name is Frederico and I'm the General Manager here at the BBC. Thank you for the feedback of your night. My apologies on your experience here with us, drinks should never take 25 minutes and service should be attentive. We will continue training our current and new employees to better serve our guests. When making a reservation please book outdoor and special request rooftop. We do our best to accommodate reservations on the roof but do have limited seating with first come reservation
Wow. The kitchen has really upped its game here, and food is absolutely outstanding. Over several visits we have been delighted with inventive, tasty preparations. Among the standouts are the grilled artichokes with a terrific zesty tapenade, the surprisingly sophisticated beet & burrata salad, the truffled moscarpone orchiette (which is to die for). Even the grilled chicken comes in an outstanding preparation, really elevating it. Oh and the roasted harissa cauliflower steak is stunning, even non-vegetarians will be happy. Cocktails are also clever and super tasty - I was in love with the Low Hanging Fruit, but this time tried the Liquid Asset, and it may be my new fave.
Service has been lackluster in the past, but they have upped that game too. Carlos is a gem, if you get him tip BIG, he is worth it. Kind of hate to rave too much, don't want to have trouble getting in next time... but like all local businesses they could use you. So enjoy dinner on their patio, or order up - you won't be sorry!
Hello Happyeaters, my name is Frederico and I'm the General Manager here at the BBC. Carlos is a great team member and has been with us for a few years now. Very happy he took amazing care of you and your guest. We look forward to hosting you again in the near future. Best, Frederico
This place was amazing. Staff? Amazing. Food? Amazing. Drinks? Amazing. Ambiance? Killer. This place was stunning. We sat roof top and it was absolutely worth it. Staff was extraordinary. Food was divine. Everyone from the greeter to the chef was proud of the work they were doing. Absolutely going back.
Hello JoeyG, Thank you for the feedback. We look forward and to continue giving this experience to you and all guests visiting the BBC. Best, Frederico
I could go broke eating lobster here whenever we want. So good..
We had to wait almost 15 minutes to be seated at our table.
Food was excellent, cocktails were all terrible (we had 4 types and they were all bad). Love the music! Very cool place, we will be returning... just not drinking.
