1. We had to ask for the a la carte menu despite this being on the website. We were initially only shown the 6 and 10 course tasting menus.
2. Food very ho hum, pretty but somehow devoid of texture - major use of artful arrangements but little substance. In particular a piece of turbot was curiously hard and salty (sous vide?)
3. There was a gap of 45 mins between our main course and pudding - possibly forgotten.
4. Decor tired and somewhat dated.
5. Old fashioned hierarchy of waiting staff.

There were some good things: staff were very nice and sweet. And we also got an unasked for dessert as it was our anniversary and I must have ticked some box when I booked!

Lovely venue , had the tasting menu for 2, food was great quality and in a timely manner. Couple of the colleagues came across a little arrogant which is why I’ve marked the service down and their jackets could’ve been cleaner.
They knew it was my partners birthday so brought out a little extra dessert for us! Very thoughtful and much appreciated

Simply did not enjoy this experience. Why allow you to make a booking for 6:30 pm when the restaurant is not prepared or open? Sat down at 6.55pm to have staff setting the table and loading candles on the table.

We found the two set menus, that is what you’re given, to be very limited. And why oh why is wagyu beef £75 supplement? Crazy.

Ordered a bottle of Chardonnay which when came was at room temperature, not chilled, and was told by a not particularly pleasant member of staff that it would take at least 10/15 minutes to chill in the ice bucket - great.

Whilst on the subject of the staff and I have to say this is the only way I can describe it, they all looked like they just attended a funeral.

Some of the courses were great some not so great. All in all it wasn’t hard to understand why on the Saturday evening the place was only 3/4 full.

Perhaps this was just an off-night but at these prices this type of restaurant should not be having off nights.

In short front of house was sadly lacking. We will not be returning.

We went there for my daughter‘s graduation dinner. We chose the 9 course starter dinner.

The service was extremely slow and inconsistent...there was more than a 60 minute wait before one course and then 3 courses within a very short period of time.

There were some hair in the truffle harp...when I pointed it out to the waitress she got flustered, mumbled “excuse me” and disappeared in the kitchen to come back a fair few minutes later with a new one...unfortunately the food over which the truffle shavings were supposed to go was cold by then...no question about replacing, no apologies.

We had to get the attention of a waiter several times during the evening to have our glasses refilled.

The food ranged from truly amazing (amuses bouches and desserts) to really bland (fish and seafood).

All in all a rather disappointing experience.

Slow and irritatingly confused service. Dishes meant to be high cuisine but flavors blend hardly with each other. There was not really a single “wow” dish out of the 9 course set menu. Overuse of mousses and vinaigrette sauces. Bread was good but definitely not for such presumed high standard restaurant. At GBP 400 for two people, with four glasses of Champagne, I have eaten far better.

All the dishes are very sophisticated and well presented. Outlooks of dishes are perfectly decorated. However those flavours, textures, makes superbly contrary of initial expectations. Service peoples are well educated. As the ambassador of grand chef, kindly explain upon requests or questions how to make the texture, what is the flavor of inside unseen. Everything are so delicious and delicate.

Probably one of the most faultless dining experiences I’ve ever had. Incredible attention to detail, knowledgeable servers offering inspired wine pairings in gorgeous settings that make you feel like you’ve been transported from central London to a lush green secret paradise. The private dining room looks amazing as well!

I had an early booking for a Saturday night. The restaurant is in a quiet side street and it's a surprise to find it in its garden location so close to Hyde Park. There was a choice of 3 x 4 course menus from which i chose mainly fish. I'm not generally a deserts person but the pistachio creme brulee with icecream was amazing. Even the brioche bun that came with the starter was the lightest and tastiest I'd ever eaten. The herring with multi coloured radish 'fin' garnish looked too good to eat. What a combination of spanish dance theatrics by the wait staff, artistic flair in the food presenation and scientific gastronomy: amazing. My personal taste would be less showmanship from the staff: the food is the star of the show and should be left to speak for itself. A wonderful dining experience.

The restaurant is very elegant. Food is delicious and I would give it 5 stars if the Wagyu beef wasn’t too fat and a little chewy than the another restaurant which I tried the night before. The food decor is an art and the wine specialist recommended good wines with a little bit history of the brand.

Last Friday, we had the pleasure to visit the Greenhouse for the very first time and on behalf of all of us present, we would like to say: thank you.

Long story short, thank you for a fantastic experience, to say that all of you made us travel is a clear understatement, from the food, to the wine, through the atmosphere and the flawless service, the meal we experienced last week went far beyond our expectations. We have had the privilege to live a number of gastronomical experiences over the years and it is safe to say that you belong right among the top of them all.

The service was very very good. Everyone were very kind and polite. It’s just that the food was really not tasty. We had the tasting menu, vegetarian and the normal one. The dishes were very pretty but not tasty at all. We don’t remember even one dish that we enjoyed. We paid 400 pounds for a meal we didn’t enjoy. Not good food unfortunately.
