Having visited Lamberts before a couple times a few years ago, I thought this would be a good place to take my mother on a trip to London. As noted by my Mum, the decor is rather sparse, but that is probably on purpose. To start, the scallops were very good, and the accompanying sauce well seasoned. However, three very... More

Hi Russell, Thank you so much for your response, we appreciate all criticism, especially constructive as it helps us to learn from our mistakes and also set things straight when necessary. Re: the scallops, those on our menu were hand dived - no trawlers, not traditionally fished but hand-picked by someone and thus incredibly expensive for us to purchase. You... More

Best sage I have ever had. The food in general was delicious (my friends are meat eaters and they loved it too) and I was pleasantly surprised that they could accommodate my allergies!

Do not be put off by the menu which I found rather misleading. A group of 30 of us had the Christmas Party menu (three courses for £30) and the quality and variety of food served was excellent. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their choice of meal which was complimented by two different white and two different red wines. The owner is... More

Dined last evening after having heard great things about the food from friends. There visits were over a year ago so maybe something has changed. I was underwhelmed I have to say. I found the choice limited . I had the Trout starter which was lacking flavour followed by the lamb. I left the lamb as it was too tough... More

Hi Katenmm, I'm sorry your visit wasn't what you were expecting. You are quite right in that the choice is somewhat limited - we only use British ingredients that are in season and readily available so that dictates our menu, plus we choose to keep the options limited in order to reduce waste - we have the highest possible rating...

Overall the food was excellent. We all had different things so was able to sample the majority of the menu.The actual cost was reasonable for the standard of the food. The main reason why the rating is "average" is that the restaurant was nearly empty,the French (!) music was loud and on a loop, and we were incorrectly overcharged for... More

Good afternoon, Glad to hear you enjoyed the food so much. I shall investigate this French music (in a British restaurant, surely not?!) and I hope you forgive us for the honest mistake of getting the price of your wine wrong. I hope you'll give us another chance in the future... Jack More

The problem with building restaurants up is that it is much easier to quibble at them; had we come across Balham’s Lambert’s by chance I probably would have considered it a half decent find but I have to say I was expecting it to make more of an impression on me given the reputation it appears to have. Although there... More

Went in for lunch yesterday menu was v small which is not a problem rarely does a menu not contain something I like the sound of. There were no meat starters I think it was 2 veg and 3 fish.

Good morning, I'm very sorry to hear you weren't keen on our menu - we get countless positive comments on our food but I guess it's not for everyone. However, our menu is seasonal so hopefully you'll give us a go in future when there might be more dishes up your street =] Jack More
