We've been to Eat on the Green since it opened, but unfortunately, as an eating experience it is not consistent. We've been a few times when it has actually been excellent, however, we've been considerably more times when it has been just average. We usually go for our wedding anniversary and birthday celebration, purely because it is near to where we live and is convenient.
Last night the menu was mediocre to say the least. The beef dish of sirloin of Aberdeen Angus, was padded out with a cheaper cut of meat and the portion size was small. Although this dish was accompanied with a small variety of other vegetables, it was served with only 5 chips! Previously, a small portion of side chips was also included. The Sea Bass was 'served on a bed of mashed potato' etc, which bearing in mind can be purchased for as little as £2.50 per fish (probably less for trade price), was minuscule in portion (2 small bits) and I would suggest was only half a Sea Bass. Taste-wise the food was good (average). The portion sizes were reminiscent of 'nouvelle' cuisine from the 1980's. Since we've been eating there regularly, we think all of the portion sizes have been reduced on everything, even down to the size of the canapes.
We treated our friends to a Christmas Eve meal a few years ago and as they had previously eaten in some of the best restaurants in London, thought it was pretty average for the price.
Lindsay was very attentive and the restaurant has a nice ambiance, but we really would prefer the food and menu's to be consistent. The last time we went the menu was such that we didn't know what to choose because it all looked interesting and the scallops and everything else was excellent, last night it was difficult to choose because the menu was mediocre and the food was pretty average. Overall, it was a bit of a disappointing evening.
