    First, the positive things about our experience: The food was really good (still with Jason Atherton’s touch) Beef Wellington was a bit too raw for our taste but overall everything we ordered was tasty. Disappointing things: The hostess thought she was the queen of England trapped in the body of a hostess - she was very unwelcoming. The waiter and busboys needed a lot of training, they simply weren’t capable of serving in a restaurant like the Clocktower. They tried to take away the plates while we were still eating, reached over the table, filled the same glass with wine, when the 2nd glass was ordered, tried to push us out and gave us the feeling that they couldn’t get rid off us fast enough etc. So, we are most likely done with the Clocktower, but can’t wait to Jason Atherton opens his next US based restaurant preferable in Las Vegas.

    Service was great - never mind getting cut in line buy some people checking in. Peter was great and so was Sarah the server. The restaurant is honestly beautiful and such a cool vibe. It got line once a 10+ showed up for a birthday, my luck I guess. What I ordered was all just ok, but there was definitely some other things I knew I wanted, but didn't simply because I've never had beef wellington or a scotch egg. I'll probably never order another unless it's made by Gordon Ramsay himself. I'd come back.

    Staying at Edition Hotel and made reservation for Clock Tower. Got there at appointed time and host was less than welcoming - almost rude, actually. Says she couldn’t find reservation and even when I showed it to her on my app, she said “I’ll have to see what’s available.” We were do ally escorted to one of the rooms with probably 15 or so tables - there were only 3 occupied the entire time we were there (8:30 to 10). I usually don’t leave reviews but I felt this lady almost went out of her way not to welcome us. But service from wait staff was attentive and food was excellent - but won’t be back because of host.

    This restaurant used to be amazing. I went there many times. But it seems they have lost their chef, and now the food is terrible. It is not surprising that they lost their michelin star. We ordered two medium-rare steaks, but they brought out medium ones, which they insisted we try. We decided to eat the first one because we didn't want to wait but asked them to replace the second one, which they did. But then that came back rare. It seems they were incapable of making a medium-rare steak. I decided to take it home for a steak sandwich the next day, but when I got home I discovered they had packed someone else's chicken instead of the steak. All the other items we ordered were also disappointing and the service was poor.

    Food was so so, doesn’t live up to Michelin star. Service was ok, as what one should expect from a high end hotel restaurant. Most disappointing part : it was a birthday dinner as specified during booking, they totally missed out the birthday candle on our dessert!!?

    The food was lovely! (We had Scallops, Beef Wellington and Shepherd's Pie). However we had to cut our evening short and missed dessert as we were endlessly waiting on our server to come and take our order. Eventually we ran out of time and asked for the bill which again we waited for an eternity to get and then pay. It was really disappointing as we were celebrating a special occasion and in the end it was ruined due to 1 server being too busy (I don't know if there was a reason for this). It was obvious this was happening to a lot of other tables too.

    A Steven Starr restaurant that once again delivered a most memorable experience from the décor to the service to the menu. We have been Starr Philadelphia restaurant devotees for ages and we were not disappointed by the experience in New York City. The food was beyond delectable to the point that I mopped up my halibut sauce with the bread, and the desserts tasted just as delicious as they looked. We were mor than satisfied with the cuisine, experience, attentive service, and overall value even at NYC prices. A dining experience not to be missed if you have the opportunity.

    The food was excellent! The burger was perfectly cooked and executed and the eggs were all done as requested. The flavors were not very innovative but classics executed really well. The staff was also very professional and pleasant. On the downside the restaurant was quite dirty. All chairs had dirt and the table(s) were covered in dust. Everything that came from the kitchen was impeccably clean though.

    For the price, it would be wise and appropriate to have a vegetable on the plate with the fish entrees instead of just a dead piece of fish on a plate. The chef should know this. The presentation was substantially lacking in imagination and content. The crab was tasteless as was the tuna. The best thing were the oysters and they weren't cooked....... This restaurant was a real tremendous disappointment after having been to 4 other Jason Atherton places in London. I won't be returning here.

    The absolute worst experience I have ever had in a restaurant. The service was extremely bad. From not serving us water for about 30 min after we sat down to opening our wine and forgetting it on the counter and not pouring it for 15 min till we flagged someone down. We order appetizers and one of us did not have a plate for 10 min. The champagne was never refilled. The wine was never poured. The Mac and cheese for $20 had literally 5 rigatoni and water at the bottom. The waiter knew nothing about the dishes and had to ask about each one. The manager did not communicate to the waiters what she was telling us, resulting in us looking like we did not want to pay for food items that had been comped. Overall worst experience ever wasted our favorite Christmas holiday dinner on a place that once had a Michelin star and now has worst service than a fast food restaurant.

    We were put at a corner table that didn’t seem to be anyone’s responsibility. The service was spotty and disjointed which might have been because it was Christmas Eve. Regardless, people were getting seated after us and being served while we were still waiting to place our drink order…not a great dining experience.

    Felt like no one was in charge. The check in refused to take our coats so we just dropped them on the chair by our table. We asked to compare wines but after long wait just gave up on it. Food order was mixed up. In general no drama but also no reason to go back.
