My girlfriend took me toThe Tasting Room on Friday night Sept 23/16. We didn't have a reservation but found suitable seating at the bar. The selections of wines were good. We chose to do Flight sampling, great choice. We had dinner at the bar. Food was very good. Atmosphere was busy and the staff was great and attentive to us.

This place is a staple on any visit to London, Ontario. The décor is amazing...the food is served as tapas (perfect for sharing). The atmosphere and vibe are a key reason this place is always packed. One recommendation - would be ideal to see additional selection and changes in the wine flights offered. From memory, would appear to have had... More

My husband and I went to dinner here tonight and we enjoyed all the food we ordered. It was not busy primarily because it was a pleasant evening and the restaurant does.not have a patio. Also plays at The Grand Theatre have not started so that crowd was not present. It actually was pleasantly quiet. When the restaurant is full... More

My mom and I visited for a girls night, we live in separate cities and enjoy making a "date night" when we can get together. The tasting room 100% made our night!! We ordered champagne and red wine, an appetizer and two meals that we were extremely happy with. We had a lovely waitress who chatted with us about her... More

My girlfriends and I love The Tasting Room. It's probably THE most happening restaurant in London. Knowledgeable wait staff, bartenders and a rockin' kitchen make it our go to restaurant for every occasion.

I have been trying communicate with this restaurant for days to book a small wedding party. I have e-mailed twice and called twice to see if we can get a menu selection. No one seems able to help apart from telling me to e-mail. I have had no responses from the e-mails. Now I've been told to call back in... More

Hello; I'm terribly sorry that you've had issues with trying to book your event. I was away and unable to access my email until today. I consider the email address private and do not have a manager that can access it. It was not because of availability that they could not book your reservation, it was because you asked for... More

Hadn't been in awhile, and didn't think we'd get a table without reservations. Were headed to a play at the Grand and just busy and didn't plan ahead. We lucked out and quickly remembered what we've been missing.... Great times! :)

Reasonable selection of wines by the glass and a tasteful app menu makes for a perfect reason to sit at the bar with a friend or more.

Great restaurant in Downtown London! Food, service and atmosphere are great. Their mac'n cheese is soooo good. Actually, I have never had a bad meal there.

Welcome to The Tasting Room located 2 doors from the Grand Theatre in the heart of Downtown London. The Tasting Room is both a bar and great restaurant. The ambiance is warm, casual and yet up scale. Lunch and dinner are served daily, while the extensive appetizer menu offers plenty for those who just want to nibble. Our renown "Wine Flights" offer a unique way to sample various wines!
