My fiancée and I, who both eat kosher and have experienced Jewish food from all corners of the earth had dinner here on a weeknight. Having previously been once before we decided to go for the tasting menu (seven courses) with the accompanying wine flight (7x150ml glasses, 1ltr of wine per person). This costs £240. We don’t 'fine dine' but we did that night and it was worth it. Entirely.
I don’t want to ruin the surprise of anyone who goes for the tasting menu. Suffice to say that every bit of meat or fish that was served was full of flavour and cooked very well. In one dish’s there were one too many complementing flavours but the others were absolutely spot on. The presentation was excellent and each course was perfectly pitched such that we were satiated by the end and there were no conflicting or lingering tastes crossing over from each course.
Before going to the restaurant I had glanced at the wine list and was going to go for one of their low reds. I am glad we didn’t. The wines provided on the night were eye opening. For me, there is red wine and dessert wine with nothing in between but all four of the white wines we were served very good, with perhaps one being slightly behind the other three. Certainly if you go for the tasting menu don’t skimp on the wine and take the flight.
Finally, service. Diligent and accommodating. Our water glasses were never empty and the maître de was always happy to clarify about the dishes and the wine. He was more than happy to write down all seven wines (they differed slightly from the original menu) that we had and suggested others.
The tasting menu was a one off experience which will linger but I will definitely be back for the a la carte.
