"Have been eating at the Ragam since it opened. More recently the quality of the food seems to be declining so have been going there less. A shame for such a longstanding consistent stalwart."
"Still outstanding. Fsa 544"
"Seems to have regained some of its vitality and the wine list still remains first class. FSA 443. "
"Almost empty, albeit on a Monday night, so after the main course our waitress told us she was leaving for the night. very average food, the compote of vegetables asamain course a disgrace, and the ricotta in the ravioli rancid. Others enjoyed the chestnut soup with mushrooms and the chicken. But at over £100 per head, without the wine, for three very small portions each, it would count as the worst value in London even if everything had been delicious"
"An impressively Quick and warm welcome. It continued well from there. Lucky enough to have the weather to sit outside in October. Lovely meal and exemplary service."
"On a busy Friday evening the service remained professional, attentive, friendly. Now well into their second year the quality of food and wines is, for this part of the kingdom, frankly stunning. We dinned with seasoned parents who have been used to the very best and they were not disappointed. The pigeon starter was exquisitely good and the duck breast main melted in the mouth. Perhaps the desert showed a little, but only a little, of Jahdre's American influence. Amanda was clearly knowledgeable and my father was delighted to find Nyetimber on the wine list. Inspiring and tempting menus means we shall have to return - and soon!"
"I had read good reviews but I was still surprised by this restaurant: - 3 course menu for 55£ isn't cheap, but the quality of the plates is such that makes it look a bargain - they have a vegetarian menu, so don't be put off by the menu on the website - service was excellent, huge attention to customer experience, the waiters love what they serve, they know every dish in depth - from the outside the resto looks much cosier than it actually is, hence my lower rating on ambience, but it's very elegant and intimate"
"Excellent value set lunch menu. Good food. Attentive service. Menus have improved to be more seasonal."
"Had a disappointing meal. Food sent back because it was cold, some of it twice. The staff were very good and we were not charged for the food and were given many apologies, but unusual for a restaurant of this quality. We will try it again before a final judgement on our part."
"Great neighbourhood restaurant with pleasant and consistent food. JC the owner is a pleasure and great at front of house. Hope this restaurant stays for the long term - love the steak frites."
