We live fairly locally, had heard this was a restaurant worthy of 'special occasions' so as foodies we finally went with high expectations. Disappointing considering all great reviews, but then we do cook and have high standards. Started with fried coley and a ham hock with barley which was fine but frankly would have been better as a main. Both... More

Lambert is a wonderful "local" restaurant, in a slightly gastronomical desert...here in Tooting Bec/ Balham, most especially at lunch time. A gourmet yet unfussy place, confortable, professional, welcoming. Classical cuisine, along with personal choices and twists, never dull. Good choice of wines. Not pretentious, though ambitious and original, a real gem that we thorougly appreciate, treasure,and keep for special occasions.

I have visited this restaurant several times now, and can say that it is consistently excellent. Service is relaxed and efficient and a recent visit was made very special with some accurately cooked and delicious scallops. All was topped off with an excellent and original interpretation of lemon meringue pie. Wonderful

Had a meal with a group of friends at Lambert s last night. The food is superb and of a party of 7 everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dishes. The thrice cooked chips are divine. We had a wonderful waitress who looked after us all evening and made sure all of food and drink wishes were taken care of. Excellent Cheese... More

Meal was superb and service excellent. The gin and juniper refresher was a wonderful way to start a meal.

Really good service and a great mushroom starter, as well as fine bread and butter were the highlights. The beef dish was a bit chewy but rather decent but the chips were a disappointment. Desert was reasonable English crumble but not exceptional sadly. The cheese board was superb though. My rating is a bit harsh and would say this is... More

I had Sunday lunch here with a girl friend. We had excellent Bloody Mary's and excellent wine but we both thought the roast was underwhelming - nice beef but gravy a little dull, short on spuds, one small batter pudding, and uninspiring veg (nothing as lush as my own Sunday roasts!) Puddings were better and the overall lunch was pleasant,... More

Decor was bland, portions were tiny, service was REALLY slow and I left hungry. Saving grace was the fantastic triple cooked chips but our sea bream portions were very unsubstantial, the fish and chips was 90% batter and the starter of pumpkin was undercooked. Very underwhelmed and won't be going again.

We went as an adult family to this restaurant, based on my daughter's past experience of an excellent wine and food evening. This time she was a little disappointed, although we foun dit quite acceptable. The decor is 'gastro pub', typical suburban London, with 4-6 people crowded around a small table, and the tables packed together. Ambience is more farm... More

We went for Sunday lunch.....had a very limited selection of food, partly because we only had a main course and to be honest the starters all sounded much more interesting than the mains. That said, the beef was delicious and so tender and flavour some I can't fault it. The beef sat on top of some uninspiring cabbage and some... More
