Description: This Green Park institution was a hit when it first opened its doors in 1947 and since then it has remained a favourite amongst London���s dining elite. The interior is similarly timeless, with a warm neutral colour scheme, monochrome photographs, and a popular bar that runs the length of the restaurant to ensure that solo diners or last-minute latecomers have somewhere to perch. Like its sister restaurant, The Ivy, it���s ideal for business lunches, romantic liaisons and special occasions alike. The menu showcases modern European favourites, presented with flair but without fuss, and includes classic dishes like Salmon fishcake with buttered spinach sorrel sauce; Bannockburn rib steak with B��arnaise sauce; and dressed Dorset crab. An extensive wine list and flawless service completes the picture and makes for a truly unforgettable experience.

“Still the coolest....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The service is just the best, the food is consistently excellent and you can eat cheap, sixty quid for two, or you can blow your brains out. Difficult to get a booking but its worth trying a walk in if there are two of you to see if you can eat at the bar. Jesus runs it and has been working there from the start, when Chris and Jeremy ran it. Better by far than Scotts (a lot cheaper too) and with more panache than the Ivy. Good for both pre and post theatre, but my favourite is lunch.

“Food is Hot, the prices are not.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

I visited this restaurant for lunch on January the 2nd. With very high expectations. I would give this 4/5 if the food was more reasonable. £15+ for a basic starter in an almost cafe environment. I'm sorry but it would of been cheaper to have lunch at restaurant Gordon Ramsay in Chelsea which has 3 michelin stars. I don't skimp when I go out put I felt the money was not justified. Plus side, great friendly service nice bar to sit at for pre dinner drink and very nice wine.

“A little taste of celebrity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

On stepping out of the cab and into the restaurant, you feel a little like a celeb. Nice buzz to the place with live music. Very eclectic menu. Good honest cooking, no frills but very tasty. Not cheap though, but worth a treat and a good place to celeb spot, if that way inclined!

“Excellent..... well done Caprice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I haven't been for a while and decided to take my wife for her birthday. We had a fabulous time, the service was excellent, food and wine spot on and we sat back and had the most relaxing, fun time. Great value, based on the experience v's price, we left with another very fond memory. Thank you Caprice.
