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.

The main draw of this restaurant is its wine samplers, called "Flights". I enjoyed the Australian Shiraz Flight, and my partner enjoyed the Cab Sauv Flight. Rather than order a main, we shared a Wedge Salad and 3 starters: Asian Beef Tips, Shrimp and Bacon-Wrapped Scallops. We found the combination of tastes and textures delightful, as was the wine tasting... More

We went there for a 10th anniversary reunion for our staff, and it was a lovely place to go. The food was somewhat expensive, but it was OK. The wine fleets were a nice assortment, and the wait staff were lovely.

This is my favourite restaurant, and has been for over 15years! The Tasting Room is located downtown London; make sure to reserve a table by the window so you can people watch! The flights of wine are fun, appetizers are highly recommended. My husband and I typically share apps when we go! You won't regret trying The Tasting Room. Enjoy... More

This is a relatively small, pub like restaurant that was very loud the night we visited. We found the restaurant, while visiting London, on TripAdvisor's list of the top ten in the area. We came about 5:30 and was seated promptly. We had brought a bottle of our favorite California wine and were informed that restaurants in Ontario, Canada do... More

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!
