Amazing experience; great food, drinks, vibe. My sister's and I come from NYC and this has been one of our favorites so far! The waitress was so nice! I am definitely coming here again!

Food OK. One fillet was ordered medium but came burnt on outside and rare in the middle. It was cut too thick to cook that temperature. Waiting staff didn’t seem to know about the meat beyond their script for where the cut came from.

Unfortunately they were out of beef, salmon, and chicken, which were were only told when they came to take our order. Not the end of the world though, it happens. One of our meals was missing gravy, we asked for some more, along with some mint sauce for the lamb, but they didn't have mint sauce, only salsa verde. They brought the salsa verde (£1.50), but forgot the gravy again. We gave up asking after that. The food itself was very nice, priced pretty much the same as everywhere else nearby.

Food was horrible; soggy vegetables and burnt potatoes so obviously were reheated. Staff were continuously rude and looked miserable which made us feel bad for asking for simple things like a straw (got an eye roll and a nod when I asked for one instead amid a simple “Yes no problem”)

Shame as it’s a great location and nice decor/vibe but would definitely recommend one of the numerous restaurants nearby instead. The cocktails are nice and it’s great to have Happy Hour on a Saturday night. Overall though I think there are better food and service options nearby that give a better experience.

Excellent food as always and lovely waiting staff. Not hurried through our meal as in some London restaurants and as a result ordered another bottle of wine!

Second visit was impressed the first time, had to return and see if it was an occasion or if the food and service are just that good! The restaurant is 5 star I’ll be back next time I return to London

Probably the worst restaurant I have ever eaten in.
Starter - tomato and mozzarella in olive oil and balsamic with what can only be described as a poppadom like cracker to mop up the oil - really, whose clever idea was that?
Giant meat ball in sauce. Meat ball tasteless but totally overwhelmed by a sauce which was so rich as to be too strong to eat. A very unpleasant taste.
Lamb belly - I know this meat is quite fatty but where was the meat?
Totally disappointing and quite expensive evening. The restaurant offers so much from the outside but if ever a place needed to change their menu and chef this is it.
Save your money and AVOID

We came here with 7 people including 2 kids (11 and 7) at 8pm amid the Thursday night adult dining crowd. Although some of the other diners were not super happy with our presence, the staff could not have been cooler. Very attentive, helped the kids have a good time in all the grown up racket and gave us their best. The food had its moments, but fell a little short, except the lamb rump and the Mac n cheese. Didn’t matter - we had a lovely time. Thank you for hosting us - were stoked! 🤙🏾

We tried out the pre-theatre menu which was reasonable value. The staff were helpful and the place had a gentle buzz.

I went with friends and I had been before and this time the meat was cold and tough and it was very disappointing. Maybe not same chef as usual. I didn't feel like returning the food but I should have done + felt bad as I had told my friends the meat was very good. not on this occasion.

Excellent from the moment you walk in, the staff was knowledgeable, welcoming, very attentive to detail and customer service. It was a pleasure to not only be served by such a great group, only to realize the chefs had produced the balance in a quality meal. I asked for a dipping sauce for my meat, what was produced hands down was the best sauce I’ve tasted. I hope to return again...... AMAZING!!!!!

The food is exquisite. Flavours are strong but not overpowering. Always cooked to perfection and generous helpings. Staff are always friendly and quick to respond. Facilities are clean and although environs may feel crowded, which also means noise levels are higher, we visited on a Monday evening so it was perfect for meeting up with an old and dear friend.

Fantastic food , all three courses was outstanding and very tasty

The decor and atmosphere was lovely

Service wise was slightly less so , we did have to ask for the pre theatre menu , and the service towards the end of the meal became slower but all in all a great experience

The price of the pre theatre menu is great! you can get a 2 courses meal at 15gbp, but the roast beef i have ordered was too dry and a bit overcooked. but my friend's lamb belly was good.

It's a good place to eat before watching Hamilton.

They were understaffed on the night I dined. Despite that fact, they hustled but there were lapses in service. A diner unfamiliar with the hospitality industry might have confused it with rudeness. Would recommend.

Went on a Sunday when the menu changes, so we couldn't order certain things.
I asked for medium rare flank steak, but it was above medium, so a shame. Staff very attentive without being intrusive, and great to find another restaurant serving caraffes!

Enjoyed the ambiance and the food. If you are looking for a good pretreated meal, that isn’t outrageously expensive in London you have found your place. Young trendy crowd with the older folk sitting away from the bar. Minutes away from Victoria theater.
