We came back for lunch after several years and wondered why we'd left it so long. We were at a corner table in the Lecture Room, delightful. The staff were attentive and the food superb. We went for the Gourmet Rapide Lunch menu, 53 pounds each with 3 courses and wine. All the food, including the amuses bouche and petits... More

If only their menu had more variety! Beautiful food and I adore this venu! Fillet steak is to die for! But they need to throw something a little more exciting into this menu , to match the excitement of the fun venue

What a fantastic restaurant! I already enjoyed the swank and happening Gallery restaurant downstairs, but Sketch Lecture Room and Library is an absolute winner. We were seated in the Library and would rate our dinner experience as the best in London. The service is very friendly and very much in tune with your dining table needs. Dinner flows at a... More

Had an excellent meal here off the tasting menu. The amount of what you get and the quality has to make this place outstanding value for money. Service started very slick, however as the room became busier it did drop off which was a surprise. One downside was the booming from the club downstairs, however I imagine there is not... More

Places as big on design...that are instant London hits don't always last......Sketch has lasted as it is terrific. Full marks for design......this restaurant must have cost more than most to create...and it was worth the effort. Design, food, service, atmosphere.....all spot on.

but in the last few weeks we have been guests of friends at Hedone and Kitchen Table at Bubbledogs and eaten at The Manor, Lima Floral and The Clove Club. What is certain is that all are as or more expensive than lunch in the Lecture Room and none offer the same overall experience of welcome, service, cuisine and absolute... More

This place was amazing. They let me sample wines before I bought them even though I asked to try 4 different types of white. Great service. A bit pricey but the experience overall was very good. Go before 7 as it tends to fill up quite quickly.
