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.

"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"

"This was a birthday celebration. The prior arrangements were carried out faultlessly. Service was friendly and timing impeccable. The ten course tasting menu was outstanding and the matching wine flight excellent. Why the restaurant only has 1 Michelin tar is beyond belief."

"Another outstanding meal! What made it special this time was the service which was brilliantly friendly without going too far! Yes the food was up to the standards we have come to expect here - portions are not large, especially the starters but they give you plenty of extras (many in our case) with make it more than enough. Lunch is still really good value for this class of restaurant and you do not feel you are there on the cheap. Lets hope it stays up there."
