Description: Since 2005, Marble Arch in central London has become a somewhat of a gastro-destination thanks to celeb chef Gary Rhodes��� W1 Brasserie (and its fine dining equivalent, W1 Restaurant). Located in the luxe Cumberland Hotel, chef and patron Gary Rhodes has created an appealing menu of modern European dishes, encompassing all that is good about French, Italian and British cuisines and British produce. You could start with a luscious charcuterie plate, then move on to a seasonal pasta dish and finish with a full-bodied British grill, or succulent roast chicken. Though that would mean missing out on dessert and, with tempting dishes like cr��me caramel and raspberry souffl�� on offer, and that���s not something we would recommend. The Brasserie, like the Cumberland Hotel, boasts striking contemporary d��cor, and its popularity and friendly professional staff ensure the atmosphere is always buzzy and welcoming.

Had dinner at The Cumberland . Nice food but not memorable. Wine very good with attentive service. However for a table booked for 8pm we had only just finished our starter at 9.25pm. Because of the long wait I wouldn't go back.

Fistly, there seems to be more thought put into the velvet encrusted mirrors and sparkly drop chandeliers than into the food (not a bad ambiance if you're into that sort of thing). Also this isn't a negative review, there's nothing particularly wrong with the food however it wasn't necessarily memorable or mindblowingly good. AMBIANCE A little too exhuberant for what... More

This restaurant is located in The Cumberland Hotel, which is a few minutes' walk from Marble Arch Tube station, off Oxford Street. This hotel has 3 bars and a sister brasserie to the restaurant. The restaurant's ambience is very enjoyable, as the decor is opulent and the tables are well spaced. Service is excellent. The waiters and waitresses are attentive,... More

we celebrated our wedding anniversary here with a special offer of the tasting menu at £49. It was very good value with some superb flavours. Once you have negotiated the awful Cumberland Hotel foyer, which has zero atmosphere and all the charm of a vast airport concourse, the restaurant is surprisingly small. The decor is, er, odd and looks like... More

Went for lunch on a saturday. Being tucked away at the very back of the hotel does this restaurant no favours. It is also let down by its abrupt and unwelcoming front of house staff - given that we were the only diners bar one other lone diner, i would have thought they'd be expecting us...? Its a really lovely... More

Absolutely love this restaurant for a special occasion the food is out of this world so tasty and like a work of art. I love the amount of courses you receive that leave yoy satisfyingly full at the end. The dishes are imaginative and cooked to perfection. Staff are wonderful too very professional and efficient nothing is too much trouble

We ate at the Rhodes W1 Brasserie and the food was excellent and not too badly priced for Cental London. The raspberry soufflé was executed very well and the best I had ever had. The brasserie wasn't too busy, it was nicely decorated and service was fairly prompt.

We had a 7 course taster menu here. It was good value and lovely food. I didn't like the beef but everything else was delicious. The service was good. The tables were nicely spaced, which kept it private.
