As time goes by I have acquired a different taste for fine food. This restaurant does capture great cuizine with amazing service along with also a reasonable dollar value. Way to go!!

We go to the tasting room quiet often , and I believe that it is one of the best places in London. They have a variety of choices , and the food is consistently good. Excellent service as well. I would recommend for couples, friends, and business meetings. Less so for families.

We went here for lunch and it started out nicely with good drinks. We ordered duck wings, mushroom ravioli, mussels, and garlic and artichoke dip. The mussels and ravioli were very good but the duck was covered in way too much sauce. Unfortunately, when my boyfriend bit into the dip there was a large piece of a dish in his... More

Hello Leah; I have read your review, as well as the other Facebook reviews left by you, Rebecca and Stephen. I think that posting numerous reviews with the same experience is a tad malicious. May I suggest that if a server does not react to a situation that needs attention, please ask for a manager? A manager would have bent... More

We got tickets to the Grand Theater and looked for a restaurant close by to have dinner before hand. When making reservations, they specifically asked if we were attending a show at the Grand. They confirmed that 5:30 reservations provided sufficient time for a pleasant (not rushed) dinning experience. I assume that this is standard practice for them and it... More

Wine specialists help you out and allow wine tasting. Some good recommendations were given. Have not eaten there so can't help you.

Best place for tapas and drinks downtown before a night out with friends. Come earlier and enjoy an amazing meal but make sure to book a rezzo- they fill up quickly. Great atmosphere, fun staff, I never have a bad experience here.

Our group of four visited The Tasting Room on a Monday night - the restaurant was surprisingly busy for a week night but we had a reservation and were seated promptly at an intimate table with candlelight. We ordered a bottle of wine to share over several appetizers, including the bacon wrapped scallops, seared ahi tuna and grilled chorizo -... More

Out for dinner with another couple and decided on heading to Richmond Row to the Tasting Room. I had been here in the past for drinks and appetizers and thought it was alright. Why not try it for dinner? Well, the menu does not provide a great deal of variety, in fact I thought it to be a touch overpriced.... More
