Went on a busy Friday night and there was a good atmosphere, pretty loud but I was ok with that. It drowned out the drone of my boyfriend’s voice (joke). I booked the table for 20:45 but called and moved it to 21:15 as thought we may be late. Turns out we made it on time but as they moved... More

Took my family to celebrate my daughter's birthday Fantastic table overlooking a beautifully lit up St Paul's Cathedral, certainly won the wow factor from my daughter, her boyfrind and wfe Really good food, attentive staff and fantastic atmosphere, although menu a little limited if you are not a carnivore Quite expensive but all things considered a great evening

Modern interior design with big windows overlooking at St.Paul's cathedral, tasty food for dinner and good wine; however a bad side of it is that as they are very busy the staff seem to be in a rush for you to leave once the food is finished, instead of giving you time to enjoy the wine and probably order something...

Lovely views of St Paul's - this is a very pleasant restaurant. Good decor, and a nice ambience on a Thursday lunchtime. Ribs 3 ways was ok but no better, my friend's T-bone was apparently excellent. Overall, I was a bit underwhelmed by the food, but perhaps had overly high expectations. I'll go again, but I feel that this is... More

Not cheap at all, and the wine mark ups seem high to me. And the starter portions (my crab in particulaar) are not generous. But the meat mains are superb. My rare fillet was flawless, and the accompanying bone marrow perfect. Service was good too.

What an experience. For all the wrong reasons. I booked to dine here to celebrate my other halves birthday, hence it was supposed to be a special night out. The setting and the restaurant itself is perfect. The food was well prepared and presented, with some good flavours coming through. HOWEVER. Our server had a weird attitude with us for... More

This Jamie Oliver restaurant is upstairs in a shopping center. Diners overlook the surrounding area in a modern, fashionable setting. The menu is large here but most of the main entrees are meat oriented. The short ribs were quite good. Fabulous bread appetizers included sourdough, garlicky naan, and spicy shortbread that looked like no other. Sweet treat dessert platter was... More

Knowing it was Jamies restaurant i expected the food to be amazing. But sadly i don't think it was. It was actually ok. For the price you pay for id probably would've gone somewhere else to be honest. The service was good and the food wasn't too long. We had some starters which were good but had a weird salad....

Our T-Bones arrived and everyone said "You aren't going to eat all of that are you?" Even I thought "NO WAY" but not a morsel was left, this has to have been the best steaks my husband and I have ever eaten and we've been to quite a few good steak restaurants all over the world.

Given we had high expectations the food at those prices should be perfect. my scallop starter was great (and small), the scallop main good but my husbands 46 Pfund steak was cooked way too much and a rather thin cut - he ordered medium rare. At least the head waiter agreed and offered another one. I must say they even... More
