A real favourite and one of the best spots in the area. The food is fine dining quality without the stuffy service or expensive price tag.

Absolutely delicious food, and great value for the quality of each dish on the set menu. The vibe is lively but not too loud. Good music and the waiters are very knowledgeable. The wine pairing introduced me to some great new wines that I’ll definitely be drinking again. Would definitely recommend!

I visited Salon this week and It was hands down, the best meal out I’ve had all year - and I have been eating out as much has been humanly possible!

Every item on the set menu was incredible and the team were fantastic in looking after us.

I’ll definitely be back!

The set menu is incredible value and a fantastic example of a restaurant doing things it’s own way. Even though I have unusual dietary requirements, the team were happy to help, sent me the seasonal menu in advance and made sure to double check on the day. We have been before and we will go again.

Amazing food, great service, quite pricey wines but still an excellent evening. Can’t wait to go next month and try that months menu. Doesn’t disappoint. Veggies don’t be put off they have vegetarian alternatives to the meat/fish options for each course!

Very good food - enjoyed by us all. We just found it strange there was an additional charge for the main course - unless you wanted the vegetarian option - bit odd. Would certainly return, lovely staff.

Good food, nice atmosphere and fantastic staff however fell short in terms of value for money.

- Total bill for 2 came to £180 which felt overpriced for what you got.

- The £6pp supplement for a meat main just felt a bit naughty from them considering it was for a very small addition of pheasant breast.

- Opted for the wine pairing for an additional £30pp. Unfortunately felt they had tried to be a bit to clever with the pairings which in my opinion backfired, resulting in 3 dodgy tasting wines and 1 glass of very nice red. Have been to a number of tasting menus and this is the first I’ve wished I’d opted to just buy a bottle from the standard menu instead.

Other than that, as I’ve mentioned above the courses were delicious and the staff were very friendly and attentive.

Probably wouldn’t recommend to a friend but can see why others would like the experience.

This is probably one of the best places I've eaten at in london. The set menu is great as it makes you try things you wouldn't normally eat or order, and I was beyond impressed with how unique every dish tasted. The service was top notch and the place had a great ambience!

NEVER disappointed. I gladly bring new faces to this place and each time they're delighted with it. The £40 tasting menus are a stroke of genius in these difficult times. They're a treat, yet affordable and help the (delightful) staff keep interaction with guests to a safe minimal level. I like being told what to eat - I try things I otherwise wouldn't, there's no restaurant envy and no time wasted fiddling about wondering whether I've made the right choice or not. And I'm even happier when I pick exactly the right wine as I did this last visit - an excellent bouncy chilled red. Cor! I'll be back. (possibly this Saturday for brunch)

Bad experience I am afraid. I booked for 10th Oct, but got a reminder on 2nd October to say table was booked for 3rd. So I rang The Salon and asked to change to 10th October. The guy was lovely and amended it for me. I rang on morning of 10th to check the time (as I hadn't seen a reminder come through), only to be told very abruptly that my name was not down for any reservations that evening and they could only squeeze me in at 5.30pm, no apology. so we had to cancel the babysitter and stay in.
