In London on a Monday and met up with friends, we had heard about this place so decided to give it a try. Thank God we did! It was busy and bustling at 12.30 and we were shown to a table in the bar area. Service was quite possibly some of the best I have had, not in your face just quite and efficient with perfect timing on delivery and attention. Food was brilliant, with perfect sized portions and beautifully presented. No wonder the place was so busy on a Monday! I most certainaly will be back and try it at Supper.

This was a lovely place tucked away just off Regent Street. The food was delicious with unusual combinations and beautifully served with attentive service but not intrusive. The food was nouvelle cuisine size but very enjoyable and the sommelier very knowledgeable.

We went here for my 50th birthday & we were made to feel extremely welcome. Unfortunately we only had an hour to eat our meal because we had tickets for the theatre, we mentioned this to the staff and this was not a problem at all. The food was delicious & tasty & the service was great. Yes, it was very expensive but we sort of expected that! As for Jason Atherton, what a nice man he is and how nice to see a "celebrity" chef working in his own restaurant - he took the time to speak to us, both before & after the meal which made it all the more special.

I had the monkfish which was very nice, I also tried a bit of my sons lamb which was so tasty & would definitely recommend. He actually thought it was the best meal he'd ever had (& he's had some real good ones!!)

We will definitely be returning and this time we will make an evening of it so that we can really appreciate the whole experience.

My only criticism is that it doesn't open for food until 6pm so if you're planning on going to the theatre then go to the matinee instead of the evening performance!

We came here on a recommendation from a friend. We went after seeing a show and sat at the Dessert bar (as we had already had dinner). There are about 8 seats at the bar (I think!) where you can watch about 6 chefs create amazing works of art. We had the Goats Milk Rice Pudding and the Peanut Butter and Jelly dessert - as well as the White Orchid cocktail. Each one was incredible!!! The service was fantastic (from the bartender to the waitress to the Chefs behind the counter). Ambiance is lovely - hip and modern. Location is on a little side street off of Regent - you feel like you're tucked away in a tiny town even though Picadilly Circus is just down the street.

It really is top of the pile, the food and service are faultless. Great touches include free try plates and I'll definitely be back to sit at the sweet bar to watch the experts in action,fabulous.
