Great veal. Gerald whiskey sour. Prompt and clinical. No was everything ok with your meal, no refil of water or can we get you some more wine. The bare minimum of service

“Absolutely delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

The food is worth dying for and the service is exceptional - as you would expect from a Jamie's. Slightly pricey of course, but still worth it if you compare it to other similarly priced restaurants.

“Great Pasta, too self important”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The restaurant is great for the food. Excellent pasta. Once of the best meals in London. The service and attitude of the servers, however, is quite poor. I went there on a business lunch slightly before noon on a Friday. It is a large restaurant, and the entire place was empty except for 1 table. They made us wait for 5 mins when we said we did not have a reservation and then seated us all the way in the back. The service was slow and the waiters had an air of superiority to them which was completely un-necessary. If it weren't for the excellent food, I would never go back if it weren't for the fact that I thoroughly enjoyed my meal!

“Lovely food excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

We dined here last week and had a very enjoyable meal. Our starter came before we chose the wine though but they were accommodating and took it back. I would've liked my starter to have been slightly larger (crispy squid) but when my veal main course arrived I was glad it hadn't been any bigger, the veal dish was quite large but absolutely delicious. I did have some help getting through it I'm pleased to say and it was cooked perfectly. We couldn't manage dessert but we have to say our waitress was a ray if sunshine. Unfortunately I have a bad memory for names but she really was efficient and a real delight. I think when this place gets a dedicated bar and seating area it will be perfect, at the moment... It's just very good. It may be an idea to do a cheaper two course menu though, it would be more reasonably priced to eat there more frequently as we would like to. Would definitely recommend.
