I thought the setting was outstanding. Don't miss sitting in the bar for a drink first or walking past the grand staircase for a taste of 1930's style. Dinners were very good and not over priced. Wine list with some gems. We had a not so great experience on the service side which by my observation of the dining room was not characteristic of what I saw going on at other tables. Unfortunately this emphasised how uninterested and unfriendly our waitress was. It was like a little bit of France nestled in the middle of a restaurant in London.

Went to celebrate an engagement with family and the staff were great. They were more than happy to accommodate a vegan guest for the set meal, and gave us a celebration plate for the engagement.

Arrived for a business lunch on limited time. The waiter was very rude and dismissive of our reasonable questions about which menu items would arrive the fastest. This poor accommodation of our time restriction was all the more surprising given the restaurant is attached to a train station!

I will not be returning.

I had a requested a quiet table with my booking. But we were shown to a table in the centre of the restaurant. Having said that it was not too noisy overall.
I was disappointed to find that the only way to get a Sunday roast was to have a three course deal and even then no standard dishes were offered.
At both courses the servers had no idea who had ordered what and as a result two of us actually consumed each other's meals! They were nice though!!
At that price I expect better.

Really nice location and ambience. Small group meal with friends.
Good value 3 courses, small glass of sparkling for £30 but be aware that approx half the courses have a supplement, there are no sides or bread included so looking at minimum £40 per head for full meal and obviously not of same complexity as a la carté.
Set menu not for a special night out but good for a gathering. Will likely return for a la carté for a special night.

We had a really lovely dinner. Service was great and very kind friendly professional staff. Food was excellent. We mixed and matched from set menu and a la carte which made it a bit more affordable. Beautiful dining room and good atmosphere. We will return.

The setting is incredible - beautiful period dining hall. Food is immaculately presented and just as tasty. The servers were very attentive, but we waited 45 minutes before and between courses. A meal that should’ve taken an hour took over two.

Busy sitting so we were left alone for quite a long time and weren't immediately offered the set menu so service was not as good as usual. Food very tasty. Beautiful dining room and excellent cocktails.

Lovely decor - high ceilinged room reminiscent of a period drama; service was thoughtful and attentive; I wanted a glass of champagne and since I didn’t recognise the brands on the menu the sommelier was very helpful and I had a lovely glass of pink. The food was very tasty, as you would expect. Highlights included pink and succulent venison saddle as a main, arancini as a starter and an indulgent chocolate nougat as a desert. It’s a Marcus Wareing restaurant, so not cheap. I recommend for special occasions.

The stunning architecture of The Gilbert Scott makes a great environment for another stunning meal.
The 3 course set menu is great value with a glass of fizz, still of high quality.
Service great and would visit again but not order the GF bread at £4 that wasn’t impressive but didn’t spoil the overall fab experience for my party.
Liked the option to pre authorise my card to stop my friend’s paying!
Will visit again.

Great and elegant dining experience for our last night in London. Enjoyed the side booth table. The Sommelier came over to help us choose a wine and it was a perfect choice for our meals. The service was superb and appreciated the Manager taking the time to come over and welcome us to the restaurant. There were so many restaurants to choose from but so happy we chose the Gilbert Scott. We would definitely come back here to eat and have already shared with our family and friends.

Booked set menu but not enough choice so ate a la carte. Great crab and avocado starter, small but nice. Chicken for main cooked perfectly and loved the triple cooked chips. Pudding of chocolate nougat was heaven it was my partner’s birthday so he got a dessert with a candle in it, a lovely touch. Not cheap, but good for a treat

I had looked at a few places to try for lunch and thought this sounded really good . when we arrived the staff were welcoming and friendly the sommelier I think guessed we didn't know a lot about wine and didn't make us feel uncomfortable but was encouraging with our choice , and the room we dined in was bright an airy and the food was really tasty so overall we really enjoyed it and were pleased with our choice .

Had the set dinner menu although we had to ask for it as we were only presented with the a la Carte when seated. Food was very good standard, perhaps the fish slightly over seasoned being hyper-critical. Our second visit here; both times had good meals but not necessarily anything special.
