Just stunning, beautiful food and lovely ambience. The waiters were good but maybe a little bit too attentive at times ( took drinks before we finished )

Beautiful place, food was great. Only thing I'd say is the platters offered should say what's on them as helps if want to order one and then other bits without picking the same.
The waiter however knew exactly which was great service

On arrival our waiter tried to argue that there was no set menu and we are crazy for asking about it. Eventually they established there was a set menu which we had had booked. Service throughout was unfriendly, officious and haphazard. The food was nice, although the four courses weren’t particularly filling. I am not sure if the cocktail on arrival had seen alcohol. Overall a disappointing experience.

Food was great, service was great.
Wasnt too happy about the cocktails as the whole glass was ice which left me paying £15 for a cocktail for (not even joking) 4 sips of a cocktail. Apart from that everything was spot on.

Staff are very rude we explained the drink had to much ice in as it was white wine and the waitress went off in a huff and gossiped about us to other staff

This restaurant is superb. A nice lovely atmosphere and great food. We had the bottomless champagne brunch, and our glasses were never empty. Very attentive staff, and food came at a sensible pace, we never felt hurried.
The only downside was an optional £10 charge for 3 tiny pieces of sashimi. We ‘d give that a miss next time.

Very nice food and drinks and waiting staff were nice and attentive.

Lower rating as I booked using OpenTable for a London restaurant month tasting menu deal, I even showed the waiter what we had booked who told us the chef will not be accepting this even though it was right there in my booking. So they gave us the theatre menu instead. It was nice but I specifically booked because of the deal so not that thrilled about that.

Lunchtime menu £29 for 3 courses + miso soup was great value and food was terrific. Place was a bit quiet but service was very attentive and its a beautoful restaurant. Had the aubergine starter followed by the salmon on barley. Then the 'forect floor' dessert was a piece of art...amazing..

Upon booking the reservation we were supposed to be offered the Autumn Dinner menu offer which is £39 per head, but was told this wasn't available. So this was extremely disappointing as this was one of the deciding factors for choosing this restaurant. It was me and my partner's 10 year anniversary so to be told that was a real shame. I ended up forking out £200 for the night as I still wanted to make the occasion extra special.

The biggest disappointment however, was I specifically called the day before to check that my request did come in fine and this would be done, whereby I asked for an anniversary message to be put on the dessert. I have done this every year for my partner and was told on the phone no problem this would be done, however, nothing appeared on the desserts whatsoever which was a real shame as I wanted to give her an extra surprise for this occasion. So even though the food was good, there were two big factors that really put a dampener on the whole night.
