Just ate here last weekend. Opted for the tasting menu for two with matching sommelier-recommended wines. Dinner was a bit of a disappointment. Out of the eight dishes, just 3-4 were very good, the rest were nice but nothing special, with one or two even being a little odd, with an overly heavy emphasis on fois gras. Having tried many other Michelin starred restaurants around London and the UK, this one did not feel up to standard.
We were also surprised to find a toddler at dinner with a group on the next table. She was "vocal" and kept on gesturing our way. Initially this was cute, but eventually we wished things would return to the era when bringing a baby to a Michelin starred restaurant (or indeed any good restaurant) late on a Friday night, would not be considered either appropriate or acceptable.
We asked that a certain meat be omitted from one particular dish which was duly noted, however when it arrived, after taking a mouthful, we detected the said meat. We found this to be a pretty poor show. What if we had had serious allergies???!!! The restaurant did make a small deduction from the bill to reflect this, but we felt let down and this cast a big shadow over the rest of the meal (this happened on course 3/4 out of 8 so it happened early on).
Aside from this one serious incident, the service was generally good.
Cocktails and matching wines were wonderful. Atmosphere was great, but when we went up to the bar at 1am, it was dead, despite being advised by the restaurant staff to take drinks up there and soak up the (non-existent) scene!
I'm not sure I would recommend this as other restaurants with far more delicious food are in abundance in London - Michelin stars or otherwise. We did have a pleasant evening, but it was punctuated with issues (annoying child and cock-up with the meat dish). Overall we had a pleasant evening but felt rather under-whelmed as we left.
