I booked a table for the pre-theatre menu 3-4 weeks before my boyfriend and I were coming down to London - they even rang me to confirm that the table had been booked. Then on the train down to London, on the day we were supposed to be dining there, i received a voicemail saying there was a mix up with the girl who booked the table and they cannot accomodate us tonight - Happy New Year! How rude! Wouldnt mind but i spoke to a male voice!

Shame they didnt want our business as i chose it as it looks nice with great views on the net but i suppose it wasnt ment to be - reading other reviews - it looks like this isnt a rare occurrance or being turned away on the night!

We ate at another restaurant which was very yummy, good service and had 20% off food with theatre tickets on the same street as the show! No reservation required.

It's one of my favorite places in London!
New cocktails menu is fabulous!
btw, 2for1 cocktails with the view like that, it's just fantastic.
Well done!

we booked a table here for my birthday for the pre theatre menu for 3 of us, We received an email confirming our booking but when we arrived were turned away on the stairs by a member of staff and told the restaurant was shut for a private event.
I contacted the person who had emailed the confrmation and received a lengthy reply saying she thought everyone had been told and that she would look into it and get back to me the very next day
This was a few weeks ago and i havent heard anything else...
so basically dont book as like us you may end up in the middle of august in leicester square desperately trying to find a table so that you can eat in time to get to your show
Appalling way to treat people!
