    Unfortunately, when we dined there there were at least 5 menu items unavailable and as the menu is not extensive, this limited choice noticeably. I would have thought that in a restaurant only yards away from Harrods and in central London, maintaining their stock of ingredients would be pretty straightforward. Also, choosing a wine from the wine list resulted in a visit to the 'cellar' by the server only for her to return and say it was out of stock for two different choices. Eventually we had to settle for a bottle of the house red, resisting pressure to buy our wine by the glass instead. On our visit, on a Friday between 6:30 and 8 pm, there were only 2 other tables occupied, yet the service was slow and no one seemed to be keeping an eye on things. The overall impression was of restaurant that is struggling and we would not choose to dine there again despite the food being good. As a footnote, we were staying at the hotel and the breakfast service the next morning was equally poorly run. It was better on our second morning.

    Had high hopes for the restaurant and did vast research of restaurants in the area. Came from south wales to treat my mum for her birthday. The ambience was very nice. I ordered the croque monsier and my mum the fish and chips. Mine was nice enough but my mums fish was very slimey and a few bits UNCOOKED we complained to the waitress who apologised and asked if she wanted something else, at this point I had finished my meal so she don’t want me to wait for her. There was no offer of taking the meal off the bill or even at a discounted rate. She didn’t eat the fish. And then charged us a service charge on top. Really disappointed and wouldn’t visit again. Such a shame as it was a special occasion.

    Sadly the 3 course special menu was only available Monday-Thursday (my mistake) so ate off a la carte. Not a good start with a very inexperienced waitress pouring a beer by upending it into a tumbler. Upon being served a.replacement we did mention to the other server that we’d expect a 5 star establishment to train their staff on such a basic task! The food was really good and service spot on. Very empty restaurant so rather flat atmosphere/ambience. Such a shame as the standard of the food IS very good.

    A fantastic location just around the corner from Harrods. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, quite spacious and airy. We were attended to so well by many staff and couldn't fault the service. The food was exceptional and wine list extensive. All in all this was a special place to come with my date.

    Enrico was very nice and really serviced our family very well. He sat us in a corner where we were comfortable and didn’t bother the other guests. You all must get the harissa butter chicken. It is deboned juicy and tender. Steak was delicious but the fish was a little too funky for my taste.

    Sophisticated setting with harpist setting a elegant note. Service was outstanding with excellent advice for wine and food selections. The only negative was the food itself. My chicken was rather bland, needed seasoning. My husband’s steak was well cooked but also needed seasoning. Easily fixed to make it delicious and enjoyable meal.

    We had suck a lovely time here, from beginning to end. The location is on a quiet street near Harrods. The staff was welcoming from the moment we stepped through the doors. The food was outstanding. I highly recommend the steak tartar and the baby chicken with harrisa butter. Our waiter was wonderful with wine recommendations and lovely to have a chat with! We would definitely come back here on our next trip to London.

    I just came home from one of my many visits to The Bar and Restaurant at The Capital and decided it was about time that I leave a very long overdue and well deserved review. In short they are 10/10, 5 stars, excellent. My friends and I have been going here for a while and as we live in the neighborhood, we have lots of options to choose from but we always end up back at The Capital (or wish we had). We are all self confessed foodies and 'drinkies' but we also want and expect service, comfort and atmosphere too-- so we're kinda picky. The Capital never disappoints... the quality and variety of the food is so good- whether you're having bar snacks or you want something more indulgent. And the staff really make you feel welcome, and taken care of... the right mix of fun and humor and professionalism which makes it a great place for relaxation or a business meeting. We've been coming for almost a year now and it's been consistently excellent; hard to find these days. Thank You Capital, see you soon.

    For a Saturday lunch, adjacent to Harrods, the restaurant was quiet. The exception was the Muzak which should not be necessary in the right setting. The Restaurant Manager was not around to show us to our table but arrived to take our Order. However, the first course was not as described on the Menu (Smoked Salmon with beetroot and horseradish) It arrived with a crab pate which was changed immediately as my wife is allergic to Shellfish (for one made out of trout). The main choice on the menu was not available. So, I had bavette of beef which was rather tough to chew. My Wife had a nice risotto. We both had desserts. I am pleased we went but, I am not sure that I would return. Reasonable value all things considered.

    Afternoon tea was a let down for us. I can’t recommend this for someone else based on our experience. Perhaps this was an off day. I would recommend looking elsewhere for tea service. I will say all of the food being served to other tables did look lovely. The ambiance was also nice.
