Birthday dinner and was excited to go. Was placed at a table for 2 at front window. This front window table is next to the expresso machine at the end of the bar, which meant if coffee is being made, you can't hear ANYTHING. Also, it blocks the entire view of the restaurant, so we were cut off from any... More

A great restaurant with very delicious and usually creative foods. Staff are extremely nice and attentive. The food is delicious, just the space is a bit small, so make sure to book a reservation otherwise the restaurant may be booked up. Great food and amazing new cocktails weekly. Highly recommended spot.

The Only on King is great! The food is consistently amazing and the menu is constantly changing with what's in season. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere that is the perfect balance between relaxed and upscale- no pretentiousness. It might be a little on the pricey side, but you could easily spend the same amount at any other restaurant in... More

My wife and I who are in our 60s were in London for a reunion and needed a light meal between events. We chose a salad and the gnocchi appetizer to share. The tastes were out of this world. The quantity was perfect for our situation. We loved the atmosphere too!

I've had over ten meals at the only on king, the first three times were absolutely incredible but the quality of my meals have been declining ever since. The food is tasty but is usually pretty one note, just rich. You can cover every meat dish in demi Glace but it doesn't make it instantly good.

The potato and roasted garlic soup was out of this world. Very fresh and tasty. An outstanding start. Mains were salmon, pork and tuna ravioli. All the mains were extremely good. The pork and ravioli was particularly good. The bread pudding for desert was another hit. Service was excellent. They have a small but well rounded wine list. They were... More

Ate there with my adult son, his wife and a fellow professor of theirs. We all had excellent meals, except my wife, who was not impressed by the tuna meatball. I tasted it and I too thought it was unremarkable. The tuna taste was lost in the rest of the ingredients. Speaking for myself, I had a corn soup and... More

The food, atmosphere and service are wonderful. We ordered the soup, a salad, an entree and dessert. All were spectacular. The only complaint would have to be some strange, screechy music that detracted from the otherwise first class experience. There is obviously talent and a passion for food in the kitchen.

I recently dined at the Only with a group of my gal pals and we had a great meal. There was a special menu featured (3 courses for $35) which was an awesome deal. Each course was super fresh, delicious and just overall awesome! I had the zucchini soup (so good!), the trout (also yummy) and then the mocha semifreddo... More
