I had a business dinner booked for 6 pm on a Thursday evening. We were seated upon arrival and the drink orders and subsequent dinner orders occurred in a reasonable timeframe. The appetizers arrived - salads and wontons which were very nicely plated and were very tasty but after that dinner went off the rails. We waited a full hour... More

I had dined here previously so I was excited to see this restaurant on the londonlicious list when I was planning my father-in-laws birthday dinner. The resteraunt is beautifully decorated and we were seated at a table beside a gorgeous fireplace. The server was fantastic and very efficient. My father-in-law loved his bucket of muscles. I had the calamari which... More

I've been to The Black Trumpet once before and remembered it being fantastic. Perhaps it was an off night, but my husband and I had a horrible experience. I had the Londonlicious menu. I had the squash soup, mushroom pasta and the creme brulee. The creme brulee was fantastic, but the soup was awful and the mushroom pasta was average.... More

Went to The Black Trumpet for my birthday dinner and had a great time. Our food was amazing, our drinks were good, and our waitress was very knowledgeable. We'll definitely be coming back!

Had lunch at the Black Trumpet during Londonlicious. I had the mussels which were very good but my main course was so delish! I enjoyed the chicken on a bun with Brie cheese and cranberry chutney and FRESH CUT fries! Yum

Have had several opportunities to dine here. Great outdoor patio, best kept patio secret in London! Food is always great and filling. Good for couples, families and larger groups.

Ordered the Elk, medium rare. Could not cut this piece of leather like piece of meat with the provided knife. Complained, the nice waitress brought a sharp paring knife, 'sigh'. Maybe my experience is unique, one-off. If not for the nice waitress, this would be a 1/5 review. Don't order the Elk.

A colleague and I hosted a business networking dinner for 26 at the Black Trumpet, and it was a great success. From my initial planning with staff, to being the last person out the door, this was a first rate experience, and I'd unreservedly recommend the restaurant to colleagues and clients. Very pleasing decor with an excellent space for our... More
