“Credit where credit is due”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

The last time I reviewed Seven Park Place, the unfortunate incident of the cancelled table robbed it of a top rating for me. My return visit today however could not have been better, The staff could not have been more engaging, from the delightful doorman whose manner was as sunny as the spring day to the restaurant manager himself who came over inquire about the difficulty of the last visit and ensured this one was faultless.

The starters, preceded by a beetroot amuse-bouche, were both superb. I had a poached egg on a bed of black pudding and crispy bacon which was perfect in every element and beautifully presented. My guest had the scallop mousse he had previously, as he had enjoyed it so much the first time. For main course, the fish and duck were both served with a delicious sauce and imaginatively chosen beds of vegetables.

We then went for the cheese plate and had one portion between the two of us - a good move as the slices of five different cheeses were very generous - so much so in fact that we did not have a dessert afterwards which is very unusual for me.

Coffee was served with a wonderful box of exquisite truffles followed by marshmallows.

With superb service to match the fine food on this visit, I could not give it less than excellent this time around.

“Fabulous afternoon tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

I was there with my family for afternoon tea. There is a great choice of tea and the service was very very attentive. The price is also very reasonable, as there is quite a few of us, they have allowed us for extra room and got us into the lounge/ library area. It was a great afternoon.

“Fabulous Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

We have never eaten at Seven Park Place before - however, I can't wait to return. We were seated in what seemed like a "secret alcove" beautifully decorated. The staff were all really lovely. We went for the tasting menu - every course was a taste sensation - the langoustine tails were particularly memorable.

“Lunch for 2 on Tuesday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

The Restaurant at the St James Hotel London is a real must for food people. The room is small but extremely well decorated. I would suggest no more that 30 could eat at one time.The service was excellent and very friendly without being over the top. The food was as near good as possible and we both enjoyed each course,
Please book and expect an excellent meal at a fair price. £167 for 2.
This is a must when visiting London

“memorably mouthwatering.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

We were looking forward to trying Seven Park place and really, we were not disappointed with the food at all, it was divine. The menu was varied but for us it was a no brainer... taster menu was the only option, we went with the sommelier wine selection too.
Each course was perfect, seasonal, fresh and clean flavours, absolutely delicious.
Whilst the wine choice was interesting, and offered us choices we would definitely not have gone for ourselves, we will go for our own choice when we visit again, and we will be returning.
The staff were invisibly efficient, the timing between courses was spot on and portion size suited both my husband and I.
The restaurant is small, beautifully decorated and very intimate.
Enjoy.
