After a sensational evening I was tempted to regrade some of my 5 star reviews to 4 star or ask Tripadvisor to create a 6 star category! Everything was amazing - the unique environment, amazing restrooms, army of professional staff and of course the wonderful food. Each dish was perfectly prepared and consisted of a mix of flavors to tantalise... More

I was invited to a business lunch at sketch a couple of days ago and it was most enjoyable. First impression upon walking into the venue from a bright daylight was rather surreal. I ascended the dark staircase with fluorescent lights along the sides and greeted by a sparkly figure clad in sequins at the top of the stairs. Made... More

I hadn't been back to Sketch since 2008 and it is still as cool and funky as I remembered. Food is world class, the room is uber cool and the bathrooms are well - you just have to see them :). The service is the standout - so not English probably helped by the absence of any English staff. Enjoy... More

The first time I went to SKETCH, I was expecting your standard European gastro lounge, but I was completely blindsided. SKETCH is more than a restaurant. It is an experience with so many options. You can either have a pleasant lunch in their beautiful Victorian themed tea room or sit in the lounge, order your favorite coffee drink and drool... More

We ate in the London based Michelin two star restaurant and had an amazing experience. The service right from when we walked through the door to the minute we walked out was the best My wife and I have ever experienced. The taster menu with paired wine was to die for. I really don't regret the rather large expenditure that... More

We were referred to Sketch, a London based Michelin two star restaurant, while dining one night in Los Angeles, by a former London resident. We were not disappointed. However, we started out on a sour note - we had brought along bottles of white and red grand cru burgundy, only to be told that they would not allow us to... More

When I went their I did expect something very classical but I find out that it was funky and fun place. Everything is pink and provocative where decoration are very different.It has a brasserie ambiance with a touch of hippies.
