Family all unexpectedly free for lunch so mid-week birthday lunch. Chosen for convenient venue it turned out to be a great meal. Super choice of food and it all arrived delicious. We will definitely return. Ambience a bit austere, and only one other table occupied.

A friend of mine bought me a dinner at Lambert's as a wedding present. He got my husband and I the 3 course dinner + 1 cocktail for £85 - so £170 for 2 people. Seeing that nothing in the restaurants costs more than £17 I was very surprised to see how they got away charging that much money for... More

Hi Camila, I'm so sorry this has been a huge mix up on our part. The £85 voucher is for 2 people..... your friend had bought 2 vouchers for the same thing and that caused confusion on our side, i wasn't working that night but was trying to balance the till on the following tuesday and was confused myself as...

Been back to this local again with friends. Still same good food, good service. New menu is appealing and has something for everybody. Crab crostini and Hanger steak followed by a Crème Brulée. Cannot complain. Place was full. Wine list is OK although too many new world wines for me amongst the red, old world mainly under Fine Wines. Still,... More

We are lucky enough to live nearby this wonderful restaurant. Sometimes it is difficult to find a restaurant in England that offers seasonal food, with a technique that blends British classics with Mediterranean influences, and all in a classy environment (for a proper dinner out). The wine menu is very well balanced and the service is polite, nice and makes... More

Over the years Lamberts has become our restaurant for entertaining friends. it's always buzzing, so you have to book, but the staff are never frazzled. Service is good but above all it's the quality of the food you go for. Concern for provenance means that what the chef uses is always top quality and the resulting dish shows it. Whether... More

Truly excellent food, the crab meat and the hanger steak were particularly amazing and exceptionally well cooked. Good wine too and some nice cocktails, both the classics and the originals. Only slightly disappointing part was the cheese dessert, which wasn't the best. But overall a great experience with very friendly staff that comes highly recommended. Would certainly go back again.

Dinner on a Saturday evening with sister. Food fresh and full of flavour, lots of seasonal ingredients I'd never heard of but waiter extremely knowledgeable and answered all questions. Wine went beautifully and service was attentive but discreet. Couldn't fault!

Lovely lunch with matching wine. Fabulous wine! Extremely attentive staff, made us feel completely at home and nothing was too much trouble. My only criticism is that too many people walked past and didn't come and join us to support the lovely restaurant!

The food at Lambert's is truly top quality, excellent ingredients, beautifully cooked and a nicely balanced menu. Great choices of wine and cocktails. The waiter was friendly, always on hand if needed but not constantly checking if we were okay, as is so annoying in many restaurants. The decor is also nicely understated. Took my sister in law here for... More

A favourite we return to again and again. Central London quality at more local prices. Joe who owns the place is passionate about food and where it comes from. Enjoy!
