My wife and I have just returned from a 2.5 hour lunch (the taster menu) at Sketch, to celebrate her birthday. I had eaten here (on business) several years ago and was looking forward to returning. Prior to our visit, I took a quick look at some recent reviews and have to admit that I was a little nervous due... More

From the moment you arrive and are taken up to the Library, the experience is quite spectacular. Food is simply delicious and extremely well presented. Deserves every accolade that it gets.

We arrived at 9.30p.m. and left at 12.20a.m. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. From stepping into the building and the front of house to the top quality food and champagne, it was a sensory overload. Every course brought something new to the taste buds sensation and the staffs attention to detail and knowledge of the... More

Quite a fabulous ambiance, as has been noted elsewhere. The food is excellent and I recommend starters and sides because the main dishes are very small (two little-finger-sized croquettes? Come on!). The La Rochelle (salmon) was well done. Dessert was larger than the main course (fruit sorbets extremely good and my friend very satisfied with the chocolate). Staff: the receptionist... More

It's been a long time I wanted to go there and my husband finally managed to book it for my birthday this year. As I was pregnant they adapted the menu of their degustation so I could avoid the food needed. First, the decor it is something that often miss in stars restaurant, where deco is often bland with small... More

Interesting design, the old one was marvelous too. (try searching up the internet for some pictures). Best bathroom design I've ever been to in a public place. Oh, you need to see it. All food was very good! The Chantilly Lace is really how the name describes it, as silky and delicate. You can spend the whole night there, as... More

We had tapas with our drinks. Beautifully served in a bar with a different ambience. The lighting is interesting with comfortable seating. I was astounded by the "pods" which are the loos. Great fun and very different! Perfect pop-in after a lovely day

Had an amazing meal at Sketch this week. Personable sommelier, inventive food, exciting design throughout. We enjoyed it completely. Not stuffy at all - just a great atmosphere to enjoy delicious food. Didn't feel dessert was at the same level as the previous 4 courses - but I was full at that point so didn't feel like I missed out.... More

I am a lamb addict and whenever I see lamb in the menu I go for it. So (of all other exciting options available) when I noticed Roasted Lamb Fillet with Crunchy Red and White Onions (and wonderful coriander leaves that were not specifically listed) as Meat choice on Gourmet Rapide Lunch Menu - well, I needn't look further.
