“Mostly Nice Food - Poor Customer service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

We recently brought some visiting friends to the old spot for an evening meal. We have been to the restaurant before and really enjoyed the food thus we decided to visit again.
The starters and main meals were enjoyed by all the people at our table and the waitress was very prompt and efficient.
We then started our deserts but one of the people at our table has an issue with desert. She got someone else at the table to taste and confirm, the issue with the desert. It was mentioned to the person (who I believe the manager) collecting our dishes that there was an issue. The manager became very defensive and dismissed the issue immediately , as if the 2 people who had tasted the desert were quite obviously wrong. There was no apology, no explanation from the kitchen. We didn't want money off the bill but just pointing out the obvious. When we left the Manger blanked us as we left the restaurant.
A poor experience for the money paid. I'll be enjoying Well's other fine restaurants from now on.

“Truly superb food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2011

Have now eaten lunch three times here over the past couple of months and can honestly say that the last time we enjoyed food as good as this was at the Michelin-starred 'Harwood Arms' in Fulham. The chef/owner is ex-Bibendum, and it shows - perfectly executed, generously-portioned modern British seasonal food with solid French foundations. The lunch offers particularly good value and I think the standard here is hard to match in this region - highly recommended.
