Food was surprisingly poor, had a Caesar salad for starter and was no better than a disappointing salad from pret. A bowl of bland leaves with too much dressing. For main I had pesto pasta, also pretty bland. ☹️

The restaurant has run out of food but it wasnt because they were busy on that day by but because the orders to suppliers were not placed on time.

Have been a few times and was disappointed on this occasion. Two of the mains specials were luke warm - sent back and then 15 mins later waiting were not much hotter. These were taken off the bill and staff were apologetic. Still would go back but need to up their game.

Food was excellent m, but very poor service and at times rude too. A shame as it could be s great place. Not all mains were served together and our gluten free friend left begging for something to eat. Really rude Italian waiter did not make good of the situation

Little disappointing

Nothing was particularly bad but nothing particularly good either

The main thing was the quietness, the restaurant looked empty and had put everyone in the same corner to dine so I felt like it had little energy.

The decor was not bad but needed a bit of an update ! Very outdated- looks like it could do with a makeover

The staff where nice

The food menu it self is very basic nothing to complain about but for a Ramsey place I thought it would be a little more creative.

The food we had I cannot complain it did what it said
On the tin.

The presentation was again not modern outdated and boring, looks like the chef lacks some creativity .

Overall I’d say not bad !

But really needs a makeover and a new menu

Probably will not visit again

Lovely evening with bestie. Our waiter, Igor was so professional and friendly. London House if you read these reviews please promote this guy as he truly he is management material with great people skills! Despite juggling a few tables he was attentive. Food was average - nothing special but wouldnt deter me from eating there again. I might be surprised lol!!

Had a very nice birthday dinner here with my girlfriend on the Satruday just gone. Started off with a scrumptious cocktail in the lounge area whilst they readied our table (a cosy corner booth) and then we got to indulge in the special carpaccio starter, T-bone steak with rocket salad,jersey royal potatos and a garlic herb butter sauce for her and lamb cutlets with roasted veg and pan jus (I think!) gravy for me followed up by sticky toffee pudding and lemongrass cheesecake for dessert. All superbly cooked, very flavoursome and textured beautifully though I did find the lemongrass a little bit too bitter for my tastes as a dessert.

And our server brought out a birthday brownie for my girlfriend complete with candle and singing! I can't remember if I made a special request with the booking but it was a very nice touch nontheless. Hats off to Davide for that amongst his other excellent service throughout the evening.

Do make sure you bring some cash with you as the servers work hard to make for a delightful visit and they won't get any of the service charge. I forgot to bring cash with me and I still feel guilty about not being able to reward Davide for his commendable work during our visit other than paying compliments.

Sadly, we didn’t have a very good experience here. My friend has been before and had a nice meal. Our waiter, at the beginning, wasn’t really listening to us and we felt he was just going through the motions - he asked us if we wanted bread, we said no, he still brought it (and put it on the bill), I politely mentioned that the cod I had was bland and he just didn’t really react. It was a Saturday night and it was quite quiet - I am not really surprised. My friend’s pasta was good - tasty (although not a lot of it), but my £27 cod was soooo bland and not filling - I had to buy a side order of fries. A shame. At the end the bread and our cocktails (which were 2-4-1) were all charged, so we challenged this and they were taken off the bill by the very apologetic head waiter. At this point, I didn’t mention the disappointing fish - maybe I should have done because I don’t think our initial waiter would have told him. Oh well - won’t be rushing back.

Great place for a nice dinner out with our adult children. The food was delicious, despite being just a little bit spendy. Service was a mixed bag as the main server was attentive to our questions and needs, but the cocktail server splashed a generous bit (maybe 20%?) of the $22 martini on the table, flatware, napkin and my daughter's sleeve without offering to even mop it up (let alone make another) Each course was beautifully presented. The dishes were tasty and unconventional. It's built out in a vintage building and well-integrated in a sweet neighborhood. Space was comfortably casual, putting all at ease, but not quite as posh as the prices would assume. I am sure it is a gem amongst the locals. There looks to be a lovely outdoor area to enjoying the warmer weather... we will definitely be back!

The right variety of fine meat cuts with both basic and more elaborated appetisers and wines, served with all the charme and cordiality inspired by an Italian managing team, in a warm and soft atmosphere resembling your own place in your best dreams! Good for events with family and friends, but also for more intimate occasions thanks to the several nice private areas, whether internal or with a view over the pretty Battersea square.

Hadn't been to London House for a while as previous experiences had not been great but this was very different. We had a super warm welcome, including the 2 dogs with us. The food was great. Perfect for a late Saturday lunch. No one rushed us, it was all very relaxed and informal. Will definitely put London House back on our list of good local restaurants.

The artichoke soup was goo but the size of the croutons were inedible. The chicken dish was swamped in an over strong lentil sauce which overpowered the chicken

What an awful experience. I would never go back. Went for lunch on Christmas Day with 6 of us. A complete farce throughout. It was chaos when we arrived, people standing around waiting for booked tables that were late. Our table was 30 minutes late with no explanation, only half of the drinks order was brought, bread was only offered after the main course arrived. We were given an amuse Bouche but no cutlery to eat it with. The brioche with the pate was stone cold. Many more faux pas occurred. The restaurant was full of dogs. It cost nearly £900 for the 6 of us. Completely RUINED our Christmas Day. No explanation was given for the appalling service and late table despite repeatedly raising the issues with the maitre d’. When I chased our drinks order the manager disappeared for 10 minutes and never gave any explanation for the missing drinks. Final insult was the manager offered not to charge for the coffees because of all the issues (on a ~£900 bill)
Gordon Ramsay should be ashamed to have his name associated with this disaster.

Fantastic seasonal menu, delicious food and good portion sizes. Customer service was very good and I didn't feel at all rushed to leave after I finished my meal. The prices for food and good but the drinks menu is on the expensive side (more in line with the West End).
