What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.2

Having dinner in Berners Tavern feels like eating inside the Sistine Chapel, or at least a really, really rich guy’s house.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

The Berners Tavern is definitely one of my favourite restaurants in London. It never disappoints. Yesterday was my birthday and I was happy to take my parents there to celebrate it with me over lunch. It was their first time and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Maybe one of the most beautiful rooms I have ever dined in! Absolutely stunning, but loved the way the 70’s/80’s tunes offset the formal surroundings. The service was friendly and attentive, the starter salad was beautiful and delicious, as was the amazing chateaubriand! Can’t wait to come back!!!

The food was very disappointing, lacked the real flavour of a sunday roast dinner.

My partner ordered the roast chicken and i have to say in my opinion it wasn't cooked!

Service and greeting were very good, food quality was pretty average, not as good as I expected
I had the roast beef which was nearly blue and was a bit tough and inedible in the centre Yorkshire pudding very dry and average, vegetables minimal, roast chicken tasty but again not worth £28
It wasn’t bad enough to complain but not good enough to return !

Excellent venue, food, and bar service. A bit annoying being interrupted at the dinner table every 5 minutes over two hours but I guess they were just being diligent.

The food was a little disappointing compared to previous visits. I also had some good friends from Melbourne who dined with you earlier in the week and they didn't rate the food either. It was good, just not as good as I've had previously. The ambiance is always amazing and the wait staff were exceptional.

Very glamorous surroundings, and very spacious, but although the ingredients were top notch, a late breakfast at 1030 felt like the bacon and sausages might have been waiting on the hot plate since 7am. Happy to return though at an earlier hour.

Food was excellent as was service, only real issue is price point was off putting. £30 for a roast beef whilst amazing is punchy. Glass of wine from £20 as well is off putting.

All in £186 for two people sharing a starter and two mains. No desert or coffee.

If price is not a issue I would recommend it.

When one enters the Tavern one is immediately awestricken by the sheer beauty of the interior. After being taken to our table by the very cordial receptionist we were given their more than copious wine list, drinks and food menu. We were a group of five so we’ve tried variety of dishes and all were great. Tartare steak is always a great choice for starters, but I was pleasantly surprised by how something simple as a focaccia can taste so great. We followed with rib eye stakes, which were cooked exactly how we wanted them, delicious mac&cheese topped with wine braised beef which melts in your mouth, and some really nice chicken breast which was presented really nicely on the plates. For dessert we had trifle, something to have if you want something light, eclair, which was presented immaculately, not to mention delicious, and a peanut, caramel and chocolate cake for those wanting something really scrumptious. We had some nice wines with our dinner, and if you ever get overwhelmed by the wine list, the sommelier will be more than happy to help you choose the best wine for your food. The rest of the staff were really nice and attentive, they even made us a cocktail we’ve ordered that wasn’t on the drinks list, which was really nice of them. My only complaint was the noise level, that is the music that was playing, it was somewhat distracting for me and at moments it made it hard to talk to people across the table .

Staff were not focused on the guests
We were shown to a table next to 2 noisy tables and the restaurant was clearly not full - we asked to move which was fine as there was lots of space - we had already said on the booking it was a birthday lunch so someone might have had a bit more thought in placing us!
Unfortunately it is a Marriott Hotel and run on their very average standards
The food is good but on the expensive side, the room is good but it lacks the passion and enthusiasm a of well run restaurant
A dull lunch with poor service which could have been so much better
Love the Edition styling but not the Marriott management
