I always enjoy the food, service and ambiance here. I prefer to order wine from the menu as I don't find the options in the flights to be the best, but they might appeal to others. My favourite dish is the scallop salad and it is a craving of mine that keeps me coming back. One of my favourite restaurants... More

The Tasting Room's gourmet grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of Tomato soup really satisfied on a cool, rainy Saturday lunch. The ultimate comfort food! It was delicious and too filling to finish it all in one sitting. Of course I brought the remainder home to enjoy at a later time. The quiet, cozy atmosphere, great service and delicious food...

We were a group of ladies dining prior to a play at the Grand. Our food was flavor-filled and delicious. Our service was excellent. The restaurant itself is quite noisy, but that is overpowered by service that excels and a wonderful dining experience.

Last night (August 8, 2015) my wife and I came here to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. We maybe visit the Tasting Room a couple times a year, with one usually on our anniversary. We arrived just before 5pm thinking we might beat the dinner crowd, and we did... by about 5 minutes. Turns out we forgot about the theatre... More

This is by far the best restaurant in London. Everything from the cozy atmosphere, to the wine flights and delicious food is impeccable every time. The appetizers are to die for and ordering a couple can easily be made into an entire meal.

With the exception of vegetable springrolls, everything we had was unpalatable, but pretentious in its presentation. We had fish which tasted odd: we thought it was simply out of date, but the waitress after talking to the kitchen said it had arrived the same day and was perfectly fresh, adding « Maybe you never had salmon trout before. ». We will... More

I love this place for going to after an event. It's got great finger food and the atmosphere is great for getting together with friends. Also, the flights of wine are great if you are looking to try a little bit of everything. If you need a place to after an event with friends so you can talk and relax.... More

We had a wonderful culinary experience. Usually, when we are going out with more than 2 people it can be hard to find something that all of us like on a menu. Instead at the Tasting Room we found the opposite we all had a hard time choosing because there were lots of yummy choices. Not only was the menu... More
