My first visit. My guests had been before. Not quiet but music not intrusive. Service was friendly and impeccable. Meal and wines perfectly matched. Find it first though! It is not in Lombard St but next door to Mansion House. We will be back

I'd forgotten has good 1 Lombard is, going back yesterday for the first time in a few years. Great food, beef carpaccio and Dover sole, discrete but efficient service and a beautiful and convenient location.

Description
1 Lombard Street is not only the Square Mile's most established restaurant but arguably it's best placed, sited in pole position next to Mansion House, the official residence of the Lord Mayor of London, and directly opposite the Bank of England.Housed in a former Grade II-listed bank, it was opened in 1998 by former banker Soren Jessen and comprises a restaurant, Brasserie, private dining and events rooms.Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, five days a week, the bustling 200 seater Brasserie is suited to all tastes, budgets and occasions.Casually elegant, warm and inviting, it features the building's stunning glass cupola – a centrepiece dome designed by Italian architect Pietro Agostini.The food here is comforting and classic - the lamb cutlets and salt and pepper squid are genuine City favourites.There's a formidable choice of steaks and many delicious desserts, including chocolate fondant with soft pistachio ice cream and passion fruit creme brulee. 1 Lombard Street is where the City meets for breakfast, lunch and dinner, launches new businesses, signs deals and celebrates profits. And it's even where the City gets married.
