"Visited for the Hamburger this time and it is one of the best Hamburgers in London, but no longer the best. That is S & W. Cooked perfectly; my only reservation which is a continuing one at Hawksmoor is the chips. They are OK rather than excellent."
"One of the best restaurants I've been to. Superb food, excellent service, a first class sommelier. Memorable. Expensive, but worth every penny."
"We had high hopes of Green's, given its local reputation and the chef patron's status as a former Seafood Chef of the Year (2009, I think). Unfortunately I found the experience underwhelming. The staff were friendly but not desperately efficient, and the young man who seated us may have been new (not quite certain about anything). My salt & pepper squid starter was lacking salt & had more bounce than I would have expected. My wife's ham hock terrine was pronounced delicious, but with a vinegar-laden accompanying piccalilli that she couldn't eat. Mains were a seafood linguine with some great prawns and mussels, but rubbery clams. My steak burger was cooked well, but I nearly missed the bacon for which I'd paid a supplement under the cheese. The bun was insipid & could have come from the co-op. Fries were plentiful, but why is it necessary to put them in a wire basket & to stick the whole shebang on a much-scarred wood board, guaranteed to make everything go cold. My dark & white chocolate iced parfait was lacking in flavour, and my wife's strawberries 4 ways (recommended by the waitress) was "nice"... I wonder what Green's was like in it's heyday or when Mr Green himself is there? 3 for food is being generous and because my wife liked it more than I did."
"Stunning flavours from 10 varied tapas plates.Enthusiastic friendly service and discussion as the food was prepared in front of us. Just as good as the other locations, possibly more room to stand and wait for a seat."
"As a faux French bistro, it's not bad, but it's all a bit limited and lacking in atmosphere. They had run out of beer when we arrived at 7 15 pm, and had to go round the corner to buy some Peroni! Food OK, but very limited. Wine list even more limited. Not worth going back to."
"Very good food and service. Very busy at lunch time a bit like the Wolsey without the posers"
"Friendly service. Friendly french owner. Nicest restaurant in the area"
"The whole experience on a nice sunny day was most enjoyable but on reflection the food was a bit of a disappointment. We took the menu du jour which at £82 (+ service) ought to be exceptional. It was not. Only two courses excelled. The starter was a salad consisting largely of tired lettuce leaves (yet the fresh leaves were out there in the kitchen garden!)with a small lump of potato at the bottom (why?). Fish was excellent lamb perfectly OK, dessert delicious. Wines by the glass were absurdly expensive but I guess they have to pay for all the staff and surroundings somehow. And they should get rid of many of the silly sculptures in the beautiful gardens which spoil the setting.But it is wonderful. But if you were going just for the food, many places do it better. And I thought the conservatory is beginning to look a little tired."
"Extremely competent Italian restaurant. Food very good, but wine list unexciting."
"Have been a number of times and it is a great old fashioned restaurant. If you want a cheap meal drink tap water because a modest few drinks can triple the bill."
