I've wanted to go to Sketch for many years now but had it on my list of 'special occasion' venues and so hadn't been as nothing seemed quite good enough. Finally, finally my husband took my (not so subtle) hints and surprised me with a visit for my birthday a few weeks ago and it was entirely worth the wait.... More

- which is saying something - and not just because we had just returned from a trip to Greece where I had been obliged to overdose on taverna fare. Sketch goes from strength to strength, the surroundings never fail to please and the new chef (who says Austrians can't cook?) is delivering superb food via the best staff in London.... More

Back to Sketch after some time and never disappointed. Friendly hostess offers table at the front or more cosy sofa area which we picked. Had cocktails (Kick the kettle, lovely bubbly are nice), haddock soufflé, cheeses, creamed spinach then washed down by a glass of champagne. Friendly service, really chilled out evening. One of the must go places. Try their... More

Walking up the mysterious stairs up to the restaurant you don't know what you will expect, and then the doors open and takes your breath away. The beautiful interiors and the atmosphere of the room was just absolutely spectacular, the comfort and warmt you feel. My friend and I came to treat our selves and got more than expected, from...

We dined in the gallery - a symphony of pink and gold, attended by alert and friendly staff dressed in high end grease monkey suits. My kids couldn't get over the amazing egg pod bathrooms and glowing white staircases. In addition to the incredible design and decor, the food was fantastic and innovative. While expensive, Sketch is truly a whole... More

A really memorable evening - theatre the whole way. Can't wait to go back. Loved everything about this restaurant. Service, food, ambience - all fabulous. This is a restaurant for a special occasion, when you're looking for something a bit different. Wonderful
