Terrific restaurant for lunch or dinner. Varied dining options, restaurant or private room or patio in the summer. Great service and food.

Service, food, ambience excellent - pricey though. Situated in the heart of downtown, on the main street this restaurant offered what I have been looking for in London since I arrived in May this year. Classy. Definite recommendation for a special occasion

We try to always bring our UWO boys to this restaurant when we are in town visiting. The food is outstanding, the service and attention is excellent, and we never feel that we have spent too much, because we always get great value in return. I even tipped the water server, as she was so attentive to our needs. A... More

I made a reservation for a business dinner. We were sat in a small room off to the side with a large birthday celebration. A room with no ambiance or charm. We arrived in separately and after the first group it took some time to order drinks. Drinks were not brought quickly at all after ordering either. In fact two... More

It was my first time to the Black Trumpet and it was wonderful. I was planning a special evening for my friend's Birthday and we were not disappointed. The prices are higher but the quality and quantity are there as well. That is something hard to find when all three come together. Thank you Black Trumpet for making my friend's... More

We always find our selves back at The Black Trumpet. We eat all over the city, and I am always thinking about the food here. The fish special every night is amazing, and paired with a great wine, you can not beat it. The Black Trumpet is the first date restaurant my fiance took me to and we always enjoy... More

The food and the service in the Black Trumpet was excellent. I had a steak and it just melted in my mouth. However, the prices were over the top in my estimation. A good place for a "special" meal once in a long while.

After not being able to get into the Icarus Resto. Bar, as we had originally hoped to try, we were steered to the Black Trumpet.. What a bit a serendipitous good luck!! We did not have reservations ( and they were packed ), but the fine gentleman named Kapitan made sure we were seated promptly ( at the bar )... More

I took my ladyfriend to Black Trumpet on Aug 29th for her birthday. For appetizers, we ordered a caesar salad and tempura maki rolls. The caesar salad ($11) was OK and the tempura maki rolls ($12) tasted like their were cooked in fish oil. Then we ordered two grilled beef tenderloins ($36 each). One was to be medium rare and...

Wonderful atmosphere! Food is like London. Mediocre!!!! My friends steak was horrible for 36 dollars i expect more. My chicken for the price had little or no lobster in it. Service was good until a big table came in and Marla ditched us for the tips. So sad. For this price i could have had many wonderful meals and beers... More
