The service at this restaurant is impeccable, we were dinning with a child and the staff were very accommodating. The staff make this place extra special, they are such fun and understand that you want to have an experience and you are not there just to eat their mouth watering food.
On arrival we were met by the matradee who took our coats and showed us to our seats. We were sat near the window at a booth table, the restaurants sophisticated low level seating are a modern twist on the 30s era style that I alway feel like I could be Bette Davies, or maybe I just wish that :-)
The wine list is presented on an ipad which is used in many restaurants abroad nowadays, but haven't seen in London before which shows that this restaurant are willing to see how new technology can be used in modern dinning. This time we ordered the Moët and my glass is never empty. The service from the staff can not be faulted and is such that you never feel they are over powering, which can't be said for many other restaurants in London. From ensuring my glass is never empty to folding my napkin after I leave the table the staff are extremely attentive.
I ordered Oysters for starters. They were the best quality I had ever tasted, presented in a glass bowl of ice. The Bloody Mary sauce accompanied the Oysters perfectly with the slice of lemon. My table also ordered a Prawn cocktail which looked inviting too. Huge prawns in a rich creamy sauce, again presented in a glass bowl. For our main we ordered steak, mine of which was a fillet. Good quality cut and cooked medium rare (my choice), the perfect blend of tasty meat with a juicy middle yum! This time we shared a portion of chips and green beans as we didn't eat a lot of them last time and I am glad we did because it meant I had much more room for my steak. Delicious food. The child at our table ordered chicken nuggets and chips and enjoyed them.
Desert was a crumble soufflé, we didn't mind waiting the extra time for this as it was so light it tasted like sugary clouds. To end the meal at The Rib Room it is a tradition that you have a glass of brandy fm their brandy cart, we don like to disappoint :-) it has a well stocked brandy cart and cigar case. Just to make sure I was completely full this time I ordered a coffee to keep us awake till we or back to our hotel.
The best restaurant in London, and wish it was local to me. So, with that in mind, we will be back when next in the capital and would be very grateful that if you enjoyed this review and found it helpful, you press your mouse/finger on the little button that says YES. Thank you in advance x
