Friendly staff

Booked with Opentable for a dinner. Staff were friendly welcoming us and serving with passion. Food standard was ok. Overall, it's enjoyable experience to have a casual dinner.

A lovely evening meal, served by two very friendly and fun ladies, which felt very welcoming. Good quality food and a nice, albeit fairly compact, menu to choose from. Decent selection of wine to accompany the food too. Would definitely recommend for an evening meal, whether it be for friends, business or couples.

109 is at the top end of the Kew Road, just steps from Richmond Circus. That's in-between Richmond's center and Kew, in an area that gets lots of traffic but not much foot traffic. It's well worth walking just a bit more to find this unusual restaurant, with its own distinctive style. Most places around here can be pigeon-holed as... More

Returned last night for the fifth time in a couple of years and I am delighted that this stunning little place has not changed. Last night was warm so the window front was open and you could have been abroad, lovely decor, exceptional unobtrusive service and a wonderful atmosphere before we have even eaten. The food was smashing - great... More

Very expensive, limited menu and no atmosphere at all. Went with bunch of girlfriends, luckily not busy so we could have a chat and a laugh (which I know annoys other diners). The only good thing was towels in the loo but the handcream although a nice touch was cheap and stank. I won't be going again.

Booked last min with my partner in a Saturday evening. Delighted if a little surprised we could get a table. This really is a little gem. Maybe 24 covers so easy to think it would be booked. 😊 We had the crab with avocado and grapefruit salad plus gazpacho with chilli sauce. Sensational. The Scallops were really good as well.... More

I have eaten in this establishment some 20 times over the last 15 years, and can say without any prejudice i have never had a bad meal. Having been recently in Richmond I decided to visit for dinner and the maitresse 'D gave me a great welcome as it had been 18 months since my last visit, and even thought... More

I dined here with friends last year and liked it enough to go back again, but I really wish we hadn't. The service was friendly enough and the setting is pleasant but the food had gone way downhill. Allegedly, there was a stand in chef last night. Two of us ordered the only 'special' - main course mussels, and they... More

The best part of my meal were the freshly cooked chips....the rest of it unfortunately could not be described as freshly cooked at all...dry and bitter and definitely not fresh. This was a second visit with friends...our first was really good which is why we returned. I can safely say there won't be a third visit. The quality of the... More
