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.

I've been 3 times with my wife for dinner and haven't ordered an entrée yet. The selection of amazingly tasty, shareable appetizers is so fine that we just have to order several, along with a flight of wine. Nice atmosphere, great waiters and waitresses, and superb food make this a must visit for a fine evening of food and drinks.

I went to this location to celebrate an anniversary, having not had high expectations due to past experiences with restaurants in London, and had one of the best dining experiences in the area. The beef carpaccio was superb, accented with perfectly brined and bright tasting capers. The atlantic salmon and oven roasted red potatoes paired nicely, with natural flavours present... More

My husband and I took my Mother-in-law here for her birthday celebration. This restaurant is well-known for their appetizer selections. We choose to order a variety of appetizers instead of individual meals. Our server helped us by organizing them to come out with ones that would complement the others. The wine selection is fantastic and there is an option to... More

I had the opportunity to recently eat at this restaurant with my family. The appetizers were delicious, the portions were generous and the service was excellent. Our waitress was extremely helpful in helping us select dishes and she was very pleasant. Some foods were a little too salty for my taste.

Thank Souazic

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!
