Anywhere that has a button on the table to order champagne is on the right track... Although they also need a button for beer, wine and G&T. Had a great night out with friends pre-Christmas. Really good atmosphere and service - food to match. It is pricey but, as ever, you get what you pay for. Definitely would return.

So I was taken here as a suprise a while ago, and it still has a lasting impression. It is definitely expensive, bur worth every single penny. With Champagne a buzzer away. The perfection is second to none. This is by far one of my favourite places to eat. I love that it is in a discrete location so you... More

I almost didn't review this as this place is so fab that I don't want too many people knowing about it. This place has got it all pretty much right, if what you want is great food with frieds in a buzzing place. It reminds me of the best days of the Criterion & the 90's heyday of the Atlantic... More

Trip advisor reviews drew my attention to the restaurant and it sounded like it was just the place for us. We absolutely loved it! Welcomed at the door and coats taken to the cloakroom before being seated in the intimidate booths. The staff were attentive throughout, being there when you need them and not interrupting our night. Like when my... More

I want to start by saying that I have docked one star (green blob) from the "overall rating" because our evening/this restaurant was let down by some sloppy service. The welcome host and reception team were snooty and one of the three servers who attended to us over the course of the night was clearly under trained and not of... More

This isn't your every day restaurant, this is absolutely something special. A fabulously dimly lit Art Deco inspired restaurant which oozes charm and seduction, the heavy crystal cut glasses glistening on the table, catching the tea lights, the wonderful BBR logo'd placemats. This place is just wonderful in every sense. Endless list of cocktails that bring forth oohs and aahs,... More

I am a bit picky when it comes to dining alone. I can gobble down on a burger and be done with it, but if i go to a restaurant on my own, I need it to be really good. Not only the food, the environment needs to be such, that it feels natural to be alone. Bob Bob Ricard... More

The member of waitstaff serving us was very friendly and pro active in making recommendations. Found the food underwhelming however. Portions were on the small side and £6 for a 250ml glass of apple juice that wasn't even freshly squeezed is just ludicrous. Go if you like gimmicks but the food is nothing special for the price.

Our dinner was not without fault, but the "excellent" rating reflects a special venue and perfectly cooked food. The restaurant has a very relaxed and intimate feel- all seats are arranged as private booths, so perfect for a date. Attentive staff and fantastic wine list- we opted for champagne and our waitress never allowed our glasses to be empty. Baked... More
