                Lovely friendly funny waiter. He made every effort to amuse three older ladies who were so delighted to be back in London. Made our day.

                We had lunch at this restaurant and had a very enjoyable time. The décor is very nice, it has comfortable seating, the food was delicious and the service very good. Thank you Caffe Concerto. Highly recommend this restaurant.

                Looks good from outside but in need of some upgrading - worn and torn seating covers. Service was good until we were ready to leave when waitress took ages to bring the bill as she was chatting to other diners.

                Reservation for a quick pre-theatre supper was well handled, and it looks nice in the pictures, but that's it. On entry the place stinks of cooking oil - I could feel the grease on my skin and my clothes still smelt a day later. Overall the décor is nice but many of the banquette seats have rips and tears in them, and are dirty looking (probably from the greasy air). Our poor young waiter was just not up to it. Seemed reluctant to actually serve, didn't understand the word Vodka let alone any attempt at discussion. I got the impression he was very much in training, but got no support from the few other staff. Looking at the overpriced picture-menu (not a good sign :-) ) and judging the likely quality of food by the experience so far, we drank our aperitif, paid and left for a decent restaurant. The staff seemed wholly unsurprised and unconcerned that we left without eating. Any restaurant where you find yourself debating which might be the safest option to eat (we thought probably the pasta, but not with fish in it!) is not somewhere to actually eat. Such a shame as the location (and décor if refreshed) are good. Just seems to be a tourist joint fore those that know no better. Sad.

                Service was poor and not friendly, the environment wasn’t welcoming. Air conditioning in the cafe is not great, after afternoon tea my clothes still smells if deep frying oil.

                It was a pity that everything we ordered was not available. There were 3 of us and all types of cakes, pastries, tarts were not available. Eventually we managed to find something for all of us. We were told this was due to the fact that Caffe Concerto were now concentrating on being more of a restaurant, than a caffe.

                I couldn’t answer your questions & I can’t recommend caffè concerto. We arrived on time The front of house manager couldn’t find my booking. I couldn’t load my confirmation email. So we weren’t given a table. We went across the road to prezzo we had a fab time

                We enjoyed an excellent lunch and the service was very good and helpful. The waitress even brought my companion some extra saute potatoes as she did not like the sweet potatoes which were served as part of the dish. The atmosphere was busy but friendly and we were able to enjoy a very leisurely with excellent service.

                HORRIBLE! They told me I made my reservations too late and they almost didn’t sit us, even though there were so many tables open. Service wasn’t great as well. When I asked for the check they made it seem like I was asking too much out of them. Do NOT go here.

                Slow in acknowledging and there seemed to be no booking system in place, I had to prompt the manager to ensure the booking was verified on Opentable. Although food was good one plate was incorrect and observed to be returned for rectification. This resulted in one plate being lukewarm whilst the other was hot. When challenged the manager denied this, but subsequently our server confirmed this. Service charge was therefore deducted, at our request, from the bill.

                Was a little sceptical after reading other reviews but gave it a try regardless. Staff a little abrupt and a smile would have gone a long way. It felt like some of the staff were new and had to check everything with other staff members. Decor a little strange. At seating level it’s looks lovely but when your eyes go above the panelling you see bare dirty walls and pipework. Food was mediocre. Had to ask for extra water in what must be the smallest tea pot in the world. Refills of sandwiches etc not offered but there was enough to fill you up if you aren’t very hungry. You get what you pay for. If you’re after the full afternoon tea experience then I’d strongly recommend you book something a little more up market. Ambiance is everything and sadly this venue comes up a little short.

                Lovely food and atmosphere. However our drinks arrived after our food came, and I was very disappointed to see they all came with plastic straws, which are not recyclable and can harm marine life. It would be wonderful if this restaurant changed this like other restaurants are doing, then I would be more than happy to return.

                We had afternoon tea. Family of four. Returning guests. Everything for OK but some of the cake was lacking taste. Not so unusual but a pity. We got their on a busy Sunday afternoon. And the restaurant was packed and a little chaotic. Two or three staff asked if we waiting for a table. Food was served before bubbles and tea. But all in all OK and we will probable be back.

                Generally everything was good but our waitress was, bluntly said, just rude. It did ruin our experience especially at the end. Some other guests has the same problem. We will definitely not come back to that particular cafe.

                Unfortunately the cafe team hadn’t received our booking although I had received confirmation. Therefore they hadn’t been able to set the table up. We were able to work around that and had a successful celebration

                Honestly, kinda gross. Tea sandwiches stale. Scones stale. Teabags in little metal 'diner' pots. I can't resist sweets or savorys when it comes to tea and left almost everything on the plate. So sorry to report. Definitely in need of some attention.
