Summary

David Moore’s “perennially excellent!” foodie temple in Fitzrovia remains one of London’s prime gastronomic ‘heavy hitters’ – service is “outstanding”, the “very clever” cuisine is “a joy”, and a friendly sommelier oversees a “treasure trove” of wine. Stop Press – chef Marcus Eaves left in early September 2015, but David Moore has a good track record of attracting the best talent here.

Summary

Marcus Eaves’s “fabulous food, beautifully presented” maintains David Moore’s “plush” Fitzrovia fixture as one of the capital’s foremost foodie temples; the ambience can seem “stuffy” though (going on “dull”, if you sit at the front).

"Another fine meal! We were greeted by a now familiar team who treat everyone as an important client whether they really remember them or not. Exquisite squid linguini - no pasta, just fish; reasonable but less exciting white asparagus, outstanding roast pollock -best ever version of this fish and lamb in two types for main courses and a light refreshing rhubarb desert. Bread varieties to keep us from being hungry as the portions, particularly the starters, are modest. Wine glasses are also 175m but of course the range here is awesome and if you can run to a bottle, you will have one of the best cellars in London to choose from. We were lured to come earlier than our usual 2 trips a year by an April Fool offer which made lunch a snip at £70 for two. Normally expect £100 for a 3 course lunch - much more for the longer menus. This can be a serious dinner venue. Still in our top 3 places to eat!"

"What a superb experience. The welcome is warm and the service first class. Despite the departure of Marcus Eaves the food is top notch with many extras. The sommellier orchestrates the matching wines to great effect. Overall the best restaurant this year"

"Somehow the cheapo set menu multiplied itself several times over in price - but it was worth it"
