Description: This is one of the few places in London which consistently offers a combination of fine cuisine with top live music acts and dancing every night until 3am. The restaurant has recently been refurbished and serves modern French/Mediterranean style food. This is a great place to go if you want a lively atmosphere and entertainment in a West End location. What's cooking? King prawns with lobster sauce, Dover Street gravadlax, toasted goats cheese with Mediterranean roast vegetables, char grilled fillet steak, pot roasted duck with carrot puree, braised parsnips and potato sautee.

“Great venue, Food, Music, Staff all good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

We received a Virgin Experience voucher, for two people, 5 course meal at the Dover Street Wine Bar, and we were not disappointed. From the phone call to use our voucher and make a reservation, to our arrival and departure, everything was perfect. Nice happy, smiling friendly staff, service was excellent, food was really well presesented and very tasty.
The early evening Jazz trio provided nice background music whilst dining, and the late night group started at 10.30 pm, and Soul Fiesta on our evening were very, very good. Great variety of music, and good musicans and singers.
We will definitely return, maybe on a weekend , so we can stay later..

“Great night out with fab food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Booked the set menu offer which gave you 2 courses and your table for the evening. Staff were attentive but not all over you. Interesting clientele particularly when later band came on! Food was great and wine was reasonable. Jazz to start at 9pm was great and at just the right level, band were excellent too. Fantastic value for a great night out.

“Thank you Mum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

I had my first experience of this place and I loved it. It was a present from my mum and I have got to thank her for letting experience it. The food was great, though at one point I think the staff forgot about us!
Cheesecake is to die for!

“Disappointed - had expected so much more....Interesting that reviews are one extreme or the other??”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Ok food was alright, music was good. If you buy vouchers you will be sat in terrible place, no view of band. Service abysmal, we cleared our own plates. Interior nothing special, certainly doesn't warrant price. There was a driver in our party ( so sober and could keep count), they stitched us up big time with number of drinks. and they don't tell you at beginning of evening but if you're a la carte, ( they tell you on desert menu-sneaky) that there is a £2.50 per person charge for listening to the music. The only redeeming feature was that the company was great! Aside from that, this place made a big deal of taking deposits, not wanting to sit us together ( some had vouchers, some a la carte) and some waiting staff a lot more helpful than others. there are far far nicer restaurants for the money, probably ok to pop in for a drink, but then I wouldn't pay door fee of £15 for that either. Ive always thought bad reviews were from people that sit there with nothing better to do, this is the first review I've ever written- but theres a reason there are so many bad reviews for this place

“Enjoyable Night Out with Good Food & Music!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We visited last Friday on the 30/05/14 after purchasing the 2-4-1 4 course dinner. We booked for 21:00 and when we arrived we were promptly shown to our table which was by an empty bar at the far end of the restaurant, not the best location but not the worst either!
We were given our free cocktail which was a peach belini which was OK.
The food was enjoyable especially the steak that we had as a main and the cheesecake for dessert was delicious. What made the evening entertaining was the live music during our meal that added to the ambience of a lovely evening. Unfortunately they finished at 21:45 but we were not left silient as they have a DJ that played music until the next band was on!
