Met a friend for catching up... We enjoyed the food, but some of the items were not well described so they came as a surprise. Good wine list. Tea selection is limited and unknown by wait staff. Service is deferential.

We all really enjoyed our meal. The food was all really good which you would expect for the price but there were a few standout dishes - the lobster carpaccio and the scallops special were superb. The service was excellent and the ambience was nice....More

Hard to categorise Corduroy so Modern American will have to cover it. Excellent quality ingredients cooked with skill,and served with care. An oasis of peace in a frantic city.
