You can not go wrong going for dinner here. It is totally worth the slightly higher price tag. The food is to die for and the service is excellent! It was a great experience!

This is quite a good restaurant, probably one of the best in London, and the outside courtyard, quiet and secluded in the back, is very nice. The food is well prepared. The main thing I really missed was creativity. Most of the offerings on the menu are pretty standard fare, perhaps reflecting that the market in London is not that adventurous. The menu includes some interesting Asian items, but nothing too exotic. No draft beer, only bottles, and a similar wine list to similar restaurants (thanks to Canada's dumb limitations on what wine can be imported). If you're looking for a good rack of lamb or seafood linguine, this place can deliver. If you're looking to sample leading edge new cuisine creations, this is not that place.

Black Trumpet is a restaurant that has it all. Elegant indoor sitting with high ceilings in multiple levels and 2 sided fireplace that's dividing the space and creates relaxing, warm atmosphere . It's unique, Stunning patio with flowers ,greens and pond is a great place in Summer to have a romantic dinner or getting together with friends. The food was excellent as well. We had seared Salmon and Steak with Caesar salad and it was delicious. Black trumpet reminds you of some of the fine restaurants in bigger cities. Barry Gryb &Sherry Farid

I had a great experience here. Had a last minute reservation and they had room for two of us on a busy Saturday evening. Food was impeccable and service was great. Staff was very friendly. I would recommend the mussels and the salmon, they were to die for! Lovely restaurant and would recommend.

We had eaten at the Black Trumpet three times before...and found the service and specially the food amazing!! But last evening we choose the Black Trumpet again...and invited four friends to join us. The Staff remained terrific...but the food was definetly not what we had expereinced before...which had been wonderful!!! The mussels were ordinary dull..almost tasteless, the Seafood pasta dish was dry. The last time I had it, the pasta was fragrant and juicy....so yummy! Three of us had the pasta...and we all felt the same. The other three meals were ok...but not great. Will we come back...perhaps for another try....because the first three were excellent meals,
