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!

We started with drinks outside which were good and well mixed before moving inside to eat. Whilst the menu is small but varied we settled for the rump of lamb which was delicious and perfectly pink; ham hock terrine was also good however the crab less so. A decent white which was recommended went well with the food. It's a... More

Four of us had a delicious Sunday lunch yesterday. Melt in the mouth beef, fresh fish, perfect puds and smooth, aromatic coffee. Staff are warm, welcoming, attentive, not in your face. We love going to Lamberts and have never been disappointed with our choices whether it's the Saturday lunch, evening or Sunday lunch menus. Of course, eating out for the... More

Four of us went for dinner on a Saturday evening and enjoyed the food and wine selection. the service was just right - not too pushy but attentive. I think we were the last to leave after sampling starters, mains and deserts. Would definitely go back.

Very impressed by the food. Simple sounding dishes but with outstanding ingredients made this a very enjoyable dinner. Craft beer selection could be a bit better though. Not cheap, but your money goes toward top of the range ingredients. Atmosphere is relaxed, good place to bring the folks next time they're in town.
