This is a fine dining experience. First class drinks, food, ambience, facilities and service. We have enjoyed a 4 hour Sunday Brunch and not a second was wasted. This is not a cheap place, but it is excellent value for the money. The restaurant is located on a high floor with terrace garden and London scenery (not so accessible in... More

Pricey but worth a visit for a romantic evening. We had our anniversary dinner here (booked months in advance). The lamb shoulder main dish was absolutely divine! The meat was so tender and flavourful it was one of the best I've ever had.

A little cramped with not much space between neighbours but it is made up for by the food and also the outdoor terrace.

This is still a place I do enjoy going to - service was actually excellent - friendly and attentive - even though the place was packed. The wine selection is excellent - overall 8 out of 10 and would definately go back.

My daughter and I stumbled in, soaked and freezing, and were greeted with open arms. They took our wet things to dry them, gave us the warmest table in the room, and when hearing of our vacation plans, presented us with this amazing dessert! We shared a "Grannies cottage"- really an after dinner drink, but we needed the warm Hennessey!... More

We came here for my birthday. A group of ladies. We had the set lynch menu. It was a gr8 price @ £26.99. Dinner menu was £29.99. The choice was hard! I choose salmon to start, fillet of beef for main & an amazing apple dessert. The staff were amazingly accomodating, friendly & super efficient. This has been 1 of... More

Recommend booking when the evening standard menu is available for good value. Enjoy a drink on the terrace before dinner. Escargot starter is great and the "green apple" dessert is quite a treat!

The access to this restaurant is via a lift which transports you to the top floor of a mini skyscraper in the heart of the city. There you are gently "vetted" by a security man who apparently decides whether or not you are a bona fide client. The restaurant is extensive and has an outside terrace where one could presumably...

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
