What Insiders Are Saying
Having dinner in Berners Tavern feels like eating inside the Sistine Chapel, or at least a really, really rich guy’s house.
The service and the food where under my expectations
Such a gorgeous room! We loved everything. The cocktails were moctails but ok...the food was great except for the broccoli which tasted like chemicals and didn’t need to be charbroiled.
The Berners Tavern provides a sophisticated and stylish environment for a night out. The service is flawless and the food is amazing! I will continue to return as I cannot fault anythint about this place!
Chateubriand was not hot and not served on a warm plate. Staff were very attentive at offering more bottles of wine ( before w ordered food). Boone came to ask us what we thought of the food a few min after being served which at this price we would expect . If they had we. Might have sent chateaubriand back. Atmosphere excellent and ambiance /decor fabulous .. food experience did not match
Went on a Saturday evening for our anniversary & it was phenomenal
Went to Berners Tavern for my birthday, they very kindly brought over a little chocolate moose cake with a happy birthday message at the end of the meal - the waiter was very friendly, knew a lot about the menu. We were there in the late afternoon which is probably why it wasn’t too loud - food was great and the decor/ambience was fantastic. The champagne trolly was a particular highlight!
Breakfast - the full English was *ok*
Went to Berner’s with my wife and two children. Food and service were very good. Having said that, it’s more of a dinner place, at least to us, with staff in bow ties and a more formal air about it. Didn’t fully suit a family wearing shorts in town for a long weekend, though that never impacted the quality of the service, and it was our job to know that before going. Would recommend if you want that setting.
Good food and a nice atmosphere. The service at the table was good ,especially the way the waiting staff who managed our concerns re a guest with a nut allergy was excellent. However, very it was disappointing that our table was not ready until 30 minutes after our reservation time and then we had to ask to place our food order after sitting at the table for 15 minutes with no sign of anyone wanting to take our order. I noticed this did not apply to serving us your over priced champagne almost before we had even sat down at the table. I would like to suggest that if you need to keep people waiting for their table you at least offer them a drink and give them a realistic waiting time. I am sure that
if we had arrived 30 minutes you would not have kept our table for us.
Great food... friendly and attentive service.... but pretty pricey!.... ambience and setting however is amazing!
Dinner for my birthday with a couple of friends. Very pleasant welcoming staff., A little cake was brought to the table, Great experience all round.
The bacon was very tough. The cutlery needed sharpening.
Orange juice was nice, probably not go back for breakfast.
Amazing place to have dinner with group of friends
lovely breakfast experience in a relaxed setting. They do poached eggs perfectly.
Always excellent and the staff were first class also
Very enjoyable evening with good food and atmosphere. The menu is relatively unadventurous for the price band.
The menu wasn’t anything exciting - and quite overpriced for what we got.
Nice, laid back. Team gave us space but served us well.
This was a great place. The quality of the food was excellent but unfortunately it was cold . Not what you’d expect from a restaurant of this standing . I’ll definitely return and hope this was just an off day .
Breakfast menu very basic and not much choice. Avocado and eggs was very basic, nothing special about them at all. It also came within less than five minutes of us ordering, far too quick, we wanted to have a nice relaxed breakfast not in and out. Service was good very polite staff.
Disappointed at having to wait 45 minutes between starter being taken away and the main arriving which when it did was cold. Poor and overpriced wine and Had to ask several times to be served our wine when the glass had been empty for 5-10 minutes. Overall just a poor experience sorry. Definitely not worth the £400 bill.
Glamorous space and very good food. Perhaps not the best value for money, but the interior space makes up for it!
The interior is beautiful with high ceilings and amazing artwork on the walls, but the food is not to the standard we expected. The breakfast we had was very bland, and seven members of the party commenting on the tasteless stale bread.
Special thank to the italian waiter (from Naples) Who is really really kind and patient.
We met friends here for dinner on our last night in London. It was the perfect spot, lovely room, lively atmosphere, wonderful service from the servers and the sommelier, and incredible food. We were six people and they let us share multiple plates. Overall we had a great experience here.
Everything from the food to the service and ambience was superb...well worth a visit!
When we come to London, Berners Tavern is a must stop for dinner. One of our go to places. We’re never disappointed!
Lovely welcome and attentive staff. Fuss made of my father who’s birthday it was, which was very nice. One of our group found their lamb a little tough and the dish was changed with no problem. Negative comment only really the price of the wine!
Went for breakfast - lovely dining room and brought my friend a small cake for her birthday.
The clear goal of management is to provide lots of staff to meet the needs of their clientele. The unfortunate result is constant interruption from waiters asking to take your order and asking if you are done. We were asked to order before a drink order was taken. There is a dogmatic approach in London to a 2 hour dinner max. Unfortunately, the experience is exhausting. Berners has great ambiance and delicious food which makes us passable. Set the stage with your server upfront that you’ll move along and be out in 2 hours but you don’t want to be harassed.
We enjoyed our dinner experience, from fantastic attentive service, champagne cart, to food. Our pork chop and cod entrees were delicious!
Excellent quality food in a very nice restaurant, service was attentive. We went for the Sunday lunch and were very happy
Not the best meal I’ve had at a Jason Atherton restaurant. Disappointing
Food is on the whole good, let down by fairly average service by the waiting staff who you have to remind. Room looks great.
A bit disappointing as the service was subpar, there seemed to be a focus on trying to get us to make our selections to the chefs preferences as opposed to ours. I have visited in the past and it could be that the day of our attendance was an off day.
It was really great!
Everything is perfect.
Specially the service is good and the food is great as well! highly recommend
1st class in everything: food, service, environment and location.
classy, beautiful perfect service and delicious food. can you ask for more from a restaurant?
Had a lovely Sunday lunch.
The service was great. Will definitely be back
