“Such a variety of choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Lots of places to eat and drink here - but the main restaurant for lunch is really very good indeed. Discreet, welcomingly old-fashioned style of service, and a great location.

“Dining at the IOD a delightful experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

I had the pleasure of hosting my family and friends at the IOD restaurant last Wednesday evening.
The food was exquisite, the ambiance delightful and the staff could not have been more helpful and efficient.
The background music provided by the young lady pianist Emiko Miura completed a rather special evening.

“Brasserie at IOD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I have been a member for many years and have often used the Brasserie at breakfast and lunch to entertain business contacts. I do recommend the breakfast and very often hardly anyone there, lunch is usually busier but the service is good the food good value for Central London.I aslo use the wine bar regularly which again especially in the evening is very rarely crowded and the service is attentive, lunch in the winebar tend to be busy but the sandwiches are good.

“The IoD's "Brasserie" restaurant is always good value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I have been using the Brasserie restaurant, at the IoD, for many years now and I went again yesterday. The food and service has always been excellent, with an extensive menu and wine list choice. It is a lovely place to finish off a business meeting upstairs and I like the quiet and pleasant atmoshere. All my guests have enjoyed their meals, with very professional service. The Brasserie is strongly recommended for IoD members.

“First class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

Great evening with beautifully prepared food. The service was discreet yet attentive. The ambience is second to none. You do feel special when dining here. To top it all ask about the history. When it was the united services club, Ian Fleming, the James Bond author, had lunch here very day.
