It is I think unfair to critisise the speed of service. (If you wish fast food, and a fast "hit", try McDonalds.) If time drags, they cannot be held accountable for the company you keep!

When a friend and I went, it gave us space for good conversation, punctuated by extraordinary food. I could not have asked for a better setting for such a productive and enjoyable evening.

The staff really cared about our experience, and believed in what they did. One word summary: 'fresh'

Good service. Ok food. If you have been to Chapter One (Michelin Star), it's no where close. Food is ok. We enjoyed. Will go back to Chapter One.

In a nutshell it took 40 minutes to get our starters,which were pretty average and not very warm,three of us ordered fillet steak for our main,I med/rare, 1medium/well 1 well, after a short while the waiter informed us they wouldn't do the steaks that way as it would not be nice, fair comment, I was having the medium rare which came over medium the other two were well done,and it was pretty tasteless.
It was pricey too, not a problem normally but not for what we were served.
Wouldn't bother returning

Our first meal here - overall i enjoyed the experience with well dressed tables, slick waiters & service, & an excellent expresso.
The food (I had a fennel salad, a ribeye followed by the fresh strawberries) was fine but I was surprised by the final bill (£££!).
Another table of boisterous diners somewhat tarnished the evening for me.
There is so much choice in London, I doubt I'll return.
