Restaurant is poorly laid out with the serving station in the middle of the room. REsult is noisy and lots of traffic for most if not all tables. The staff is incredibly young - they could benefit from some maturity. Surprisingly even though there were lots of servers, finished plates sat for surprisingly long before being cleared. And stop the phony french accents - none of you are French and we cant understand when you fake it!! We had the tasting menu with pairings - the food is good but unspectacular. The wine pairings were uninspired (an unremarkable reisling and a so-so pinot noir) and in some cases embarassing. They tried to serve us an undrinkable Australian cab with the rib eye and when we complained they brought out a pedestrian Sangiovese - not an awful wine, but hardly is a match for a steak (we suggested something bold like a napa cab or a borolo or amarone, but they looked at us like deers in the headlights). The cheese selections together with a nice Fonseca 20-year tawny port may have been the highlight. The dessert was a bizarre basil sorbet with some congealed coating on it and half ripe fruit on the side. Strong suggestion - hire a sommelier with some experience and upgrade your wines significantly. And find some wait staff older than 22. Right now there are so many better choices in London.
