“OK ........ but not good enough to return.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

we attended a family meal booked by others, at this restaurant and so had no part in the choice and were interested to see what it would be like. The entrance is unprepossessing, in the light of the definite article in the name of the restaurant, and one steps directly into the bar area - no staff were around and we approached a waiter who completed her task and then returned to take us to our table. The restaurant was busy (it was a Saturday evening) and, over the evening, all the tables were full. The service was prompt & the menu was reasonably varied with a mix of dishes largely of a European/British style. Vegetables were extra. As a visitor to London I am not sure how reasonable the pricing was - my sirloin steak was just under £23 (extra for the salad). We had a range of starters fishy/Veggi/meat and all were voted as tasty, our main course was the same. The wine list was varied and included decent House wines at reasonable prices as well as more expensive wines. Our bill, for 6 including starters, mains and 4 deserts with 3 coffees and 3 brandies included a 12.5% service charge (again, not sure if it's usual to add the service charge or whether 12.5% is normal) The total bill was a scrape under £400.
Would I go again? I don't think so. It was ok (the company was excellent!) - but I expect more than ok for £60 a head.
