The portions were very small for the prices, including the drinks, and it took over 40 minutes to receive the food. But the food tasted amazing.
They brought us out a bill which included extra food we didn't order, but they removed it when point out. 1 waiter told us all to stop laughing so loudly so... I'm sorry we were having a good time at your venue? It won't happen again?

Great location, food was delicious and drinks were perfect but unfortunately the service wasn’t great. Waited 30 minutes before asking someone to take our order and the delay wasn’t taken into account before the table was needed back.

Concept is great, execution gone wrong. They have put far more seating than they should instead of cosy it’s cramped. However if you are a big group 4 or more seating gets better.
1.Garden is real but unkempt, random selection of flowers. Fake ones might have been better.
2. Heating is comfortable if you are seated next to inner seats but the outside row its bad. And because it’s so cramped blankets don’t help.
3. Drinks - Great if they arrive. If you like your first set of cocktails after first sip make sure to order immediately as service can be delayed.
4. Food - Do try the fennel bread. Small palates were great. Large ones -disappointment. We had ordered Chicken and Fish.
5. Deserts - cheeseboard yes rest pass.

Service was chaotic but staff was helpful.

Our Verdict - Romantic Date - Pass; meeting group of friends - great.

The space is lovely but the food was a bit disappointing.

Everything was way too salty -- appetizer and main course.

Took away from our enjoyment

The setting is gorgeous and the staff look great, not really the best for vegans on the current small menu although there is one plant based main option which is aubergine, it’s not bad. I think like most places the staff could do with being a little bit more attentive when you’ve only got 2 hour slots. Cocktails are lovely and will go back for drinks for sure. Interested to see the rest of the building when it’s open!

Great food and service, very pleasant atmosphere and very interesting flavors. My recommendation would be for the menu to describe the plates in more detail, as we tasted great flavors which were not described on the menu.

Even under the rain, our evening at the Pantechnicon was was of finer monents I have ever experienced. The service was excellent, it was warm but pristine. The dishes were like art, complimenting every sense. The Aubergine was the best dish I have had in my life and that is not hyperbole, I have no idea how they extracted such tastes from the legume alone. The wild garlic was a good touch too. Thyme and Rye is a must, as well as the Champagne. A wonderful night.

Before coming to Pantechnicon I was concerned after seeing some 1-star reviews about service, but I was proven wrong - the service was excellent! We were greeted at the door with a smile, even the kitchen staff waved at us as we walked up the stairs and the table service was super friendly and professional (they were only a bit slow with taking the first order, which could probably have been sped up if we gave them eye contact).

The dishes and cocktails were exceptional (a safe yet delicious choice for mains is the chicken, and the rhubarb liquorice cocktail to start with). Being from Sweden I was very impressed with the menu.

I rated ambiance 4 stars as I wish there would have been heaters on the outer row of tables as well - it got to about 2 degrees at 10 pm, but there were blankets placed on each chair and the nearest heater was located about 2m away. That won't be a problem for much longer as we head into summer, however.

The setting of the terrace in Belgravia is absolutely stunning and we enjoyed a moonlit dinner for 2. Overall, I've already raved about this place to my friends, and if team Pantechnicon keep chirping away at that speed of service I'll be coming back many times, for sure. A new favourite!

Sadly the waiting staff failed to submit our food order and only when I spoke to one of the managers 30 minutes later do he confirm this to be the case. They did not proactively come to us to apologies or admit to their error.

The food and the service was very lovely!! Understandably the space in the roof top terrace was maxed out, however it was so tight to manoeuvre between tables without being at risk of knocking something off your own or your neighbours’ table. Personally I would have preferred more personal space and for any returns, I’ll wait until indoor space is available as the conservatory part looks lovely and spacious.
