We were recently treated to lunch at this restaurant by friends. Our host had requested a table in the patio area. It was a beautiful day and this was an excellent choice. The patio is lovely and private. Although we were able to hear a train passing by on the nearby railroad track, the sound... read more

We dined at the Black Trumpet twice in three days. The new menu is a very welcome change. It seems to be a little more inspired this time around, with a few more options to choose from. They also have a good wine and beverage selection. The courtyard is one of the nicest al fresco dining spots in London and... More

This restaurant is located in downtown London,ON. The main dishes my party ordered were cooked to perfection (lamb, beef, boar). I think that whenever I've to meet again any client I would think of this place.

I went here for lunch with my mom and my sister. The atmosphere is excellent and perfect for dining. We ordered the kim chi ribs as an appetizer. The meat was so tender and flavourful! I had the falafel wrap and it was one of the best things I have ever had. I'm not a big fan of falafel, but... More

We were given a private space upstairs for our group of 11. Our server Dave P was professional, fun & mirrored our group well. He was terrific at upselling - because of his descriptions we all added lobster tails where available & many took him up on dessert because of his commentary! The restaurant & bathrooms were clean & updated.... More

The Black Trumpet was recommended to us and didn't disappoint. We sat in the beautiful patio. steak frites for lunch featuring a generous size steak. Condiments were in porcelain cups and not their plastic bottles. Steak cooked perfectly. Waiter was great and very friendly. Fantastic.

We recently dined at the Black Trumpet for lunch and had a wonderful experience - the food was excellent and our server was a very friendly and helpful young man. The weather was nice, so we dined on the outdoor patio - a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Try the kimchi ribs - yummmmm! We'll definately be back!

Grew up in London and since have moved to Winnipeg. Whenever I am back in London for a special occasion we try to make this place our dinner choice. The food is absolutely top notch. The menu would appeal to anyone and there is NOTHING on it that has not been amazing (we have tried close to everything). The service... More
