OpenTable Diner (New York Area)
3.0
Dined on December 15, 2017

The interior of the London is on the depressing side. An institutional pastel green pervades, and the table tops are wipe-clean glass. It is redolent of the canteen of a hospital. Our waiter was more fit for a diner than for haute cuisine, and did nothing to elevate to the level a $85 per head meal deserves. The crowd is a mix of hotel guests, businesspeople and midtown tourists. The maitre d' was at least solicitous when i mentioned the substandard service.

Pretty terrible all round, ambiance of a cheap diner, without the quality food.

The London used to have a fantastic restaurant. What is left is a low-ambiance, cavernous lobby bar with the feel of a cruise ship. The food options are very limited and exceptionally overpriced. It felt like a string of compromises that do not result in something they should call a restaurant.

I used to love this place but hadn't been for a couple of years. It's changed a lot. It used to be a Gordon Ramsey offshoot. I knew it no longer was, and the food is still mostly good - it's now beautifully presented pub food - but in expensive tiny portions. The ambiance used to be plush - I remember it being a lovely winter refuge - but the lighting and decor now seem rather cold (did they change the lights?). Three loud guys were watching a sports game at the bar, making it feel like a pretty average hotel bar. The initial welcome was warm but the rest of the service very stiff. Overall, kind of odd. I don't think I'll go back.

Food wasn't bad, but i can find better for a cheaper price. Service didnt know what was happening half the time or just decided to only half listen.

Waiter came to our table and just stared at us and waited for us to tell him we wanted to order a drink. We were there for dinner but after that just had a drink and went else where!!

It was "ok". Felt the staff was not very attentive. Took a long time for our steak amd refills. Did not have the same waiter. Food was good but nothing that I can say was amazing. I would not go again.

Terrible service, food & ambiance. Overpriced with bad service. Go elsewhere if you want to enjoy yourself.

Abysmal service - inattentive and disinterested. The place was empty and we had to send up a flare to get attention and order. Dishes left on table way too long before clearing. Food was adequate. It was better when it was a Gordon Ramsay restaurant from the food perspective but service was not that great then either. For The London, which is a fabulous upscale hotel, this kind of restaurant/service seems like a huge disconnect.
