The Northall, Corinthia Hotel London Ratings and Reviews
As a regular Northall visitor & really convenient for the theatre opposite, it was a disappointing evening. We never even got our bread, service was slow, not very attentive & the bill was wrong - twice! Not up to their usual standard ..... Massimo’s was better last time.
We had a post Christmas/New Year lunch and everything was up to the Northall's usual high standards. The menu had a good variety of dishes, included a glass of bubbly in the price and the food was excellent. The service was prompt but unobtrusive and our waiter was lovely. Overall, we rolled out of the restaurant pleasantly full and very happy.
Pre lunch drink room temperature and had to be sent back. This was booked months for Sunday jazz lunch however we were not told on New Year’s Eve there was no Sunday jazz lunch as they were too buisy setting up for New Year’s Eve celebrations. One main course sent back as it was cold it was not an enjoyable experience and would therefore never return or recommend this restaurant.
The hotel is splendid and we were surprised to find so many available staff over the holidays. We were a pre theatre booking at 6pm. The service, in spite off plenty of staff fell very short. I spent most of my meal turning around trying to either order, get some water or trying to get the bill, which still took an age to come and I had to stand up and go to the till to request it. Considering there were more staff than diners this was not good , the lack of attentiveness .
My husband and I went here for dinner on my birthday. I was very excited about the 3 course pre-theatre offer. The ambience, food and service were great - however, unfortunately we were overcharged. We went for the 3 course meal with champagne (32£ each) but ended up having 2 courses with tea and coffee and a glass of champagne each and a wine. Our total bill came up to 174£(!) we realised that we had been charged for the 3 course meal with champagne AND 2 glasses of vintage champagne for 24£(!) each. We never had more than two glasses of champagne meaning that on top of charging us for a 3 course meal, we also got charged for drinks we didn’t have. I understand this is a high end hotel with a wonderful atmosphere and outstanding service but I really don’t think it was worth the price considering I didn’t even have dessert. Just to note my husband didn’t say anything to the servers as this was my birthday meal and he didn’t want to make a fuss.
Wonderful dining experience, ambiance and service. Set lunch menu was exceptional value with cuisine selection to satisfy most palates. Á la carté offers broader selection but still excellent value for the quality and presentation of food, location, setting, and service
The so called lobster cocktail starter seems to have been cooked by a child mixing lobster bits with cheap Sainsbury lettuce, while the main mushroom dish was very mediocre. Requesting clarifications from the waiter on the way the food is prepared or seasoned would results in automatic answers such as "thank you sir" with no further information. The bottle of champagne was served very late. Overall disappointing dining experience in a nice setting
Had to change the booking last minute, the staff were very helpful and accomodating.
From the time we arrived at the Northall to when we left the whole experience was excellent. First class service, great value menu and the food matched everything else. We had the set menu with a glass of bubbly. A very nice bottle or two of red from the Languedoc. Would highly recommend a visit and look forward to returning after the January diet!
Nice meal in very pleasant surroundings, but the service was very poor for a restaurant of this quality. We were never offered an aperitif, and when we asked for one it took so long to arrive that our food was already on the table. I found a small knife under my feet, presumably not cleared away from a previous booking, and then we had to ask for the bill twice before we received it. It's a shame, as the food was very good, but the quality of service meant that overall I felt a bit short-changed.
I had high hopes for the Northall, having booked for a 40th Birthday dinner. I was sadly underwhelmed.
The restaurant itself is stunning and very comfortable.
Sadly though it lacks atmosphere, and this isn’t helped by the average food, mediocre service and eye watering prices.
Such a shame because the Corinthia is so grand, with beautiful public rooms and an enviable location. The Northall really lets it down.
Extremely high quality ingredients, knowledgeable staff (wine advice was excellent) and the luxurious setting and comfortable seating make this a relaxing place to enjoy British-sourced meats and fishes. Also, the noise level is not too high or low. Nice buzz, but not deafening.
Sadly, on this occasion, it was warm white wine and cold food. After a good start, it took a long while to get the main course, which arrived cold. The wine wasn’t chilled properly and the discussion with the somewhat defensive sommelier suggested alternatives would be the same, so we didn’t bother (the lovely designer fridge doesn’t appear to be fit for purpose). Fortunately, the manager took our constructive feedback seriously, which makes me hope it was a blip rather than a downturn, but it certainly wasn’t up to my previous visits.
I booked the table as I was celebrating my anniversary with my girlfriend and as we arrived we were welcomed in and wished Happy Anniversary. I asked for champagne on arrival and it prepared for when we were taking our seats.
The service was great, with many different people looking after us making sure our drinks were topped up and everything was to our liking.
The food was delicious, I had the steak and my girlfriend had the sole. Both of which were great.
A lovely little bonus at the end was that we were presented with a pudding on the house with the words “Happy Anniversary” written on the plate with a candle. It really was a lovely evening and would recommend to anyone.
This hotel is one of the prettiest in London, which is say something, partly due to the beautiful floral arrangments (made by the in-house florist, Baod). The dining room has a menu that is adequate varied but excels at cocktails. We had two: "Perchance to Dream" and "Lady Hamilton", with ingredients as inspirational as their names. However, I must reserve my words of highest praise for the service. Exquisite, superb... whatever suggests the best available. I'm known amongst my friends for being ruthless and nitpicky when it comes to service, but I could not fault anything in how we were treated by the maitre d'hote, waiters, chef or florist. Everyone acts as if he is pleased to see you. My eyes accidently crossed those of the chef who sent out a beaming expression in return. I've never felt more welcome in a public place.
Still one of my favourite restaurants but, by golly, it's becoming seriously expensive. Some of it's my fault. No one forces me to sit at the bar drinking Champagne - but their nibbles are irresistible. I had to ask for a table d'hote menu (which they referred to as the Express Menu as if it was only for those in a rush). Even this menu was quite dear and it would be a wicked waste to rush through it. The standard is very high and the service, apart from the menu issue, outstanding. But I guess I'll be back before long, just the same.
