Restaurant Diner Reviews
"A thoroughly disappointing experience. No attention was paid to the booking notes requested of guests when making their booking. The food was mediocre. There was shell in the crab, the steak which was supposed to medium was, in fact, blue in the middle, the cod was swimming in a pool of water at the bottom of the plate and the dessert was so salty it was unpleasant. No one enquired if the meals were satisfactory. The cod was sent back which was simply transferred to a dry plate. It still had the cut in it from when it was taken away, only difference was that they took half the fish away and it was nearly cold when I got it back. The whole meal was accompanied by the smell from the disabled toilet which opens directly into the restaurant as there's no interconnecting door. It certainly didn't meet my expectations."
"So far and away the most exciting Indian food in London. Eight small courses and six larger courses on the tasting menu. Absolutely worth the price - a really fun and exciting experience. We went once and immediately returned with five people two days later."
"Tiny restaurant but impressive food and service. It is intimate but very good, very sophisticated and great to have a view into the kitchen."
"There are endless numbers of large, pre-theatre-aimed restaurants in the immediate vicinity so what made this one better? Fundamentally, the food, and the ambience felt more genuinely Italian instead of professional-restaurateur-doing Italian. Waiters plentiful and they really wanted to help. The food was delicious - lobster taglianini."
"this has to be one of the most overpriced restaurants in London. There is nothing to justify the high prices for either the food or the outrageously priced wine list"
"Busy Italian with a great atmosphere. Quiet enough for a business lunch, loud enough for a lively dinner"
"Great food in a romantic and relaxed atmosphere"
"Slick and automated. Ordering is fast and simple; service is quick. The food is not at all bad - I had the SaltBeef, which was cooked well (perhaps a tad too well) and came with a number of pickles and some spinach leaves. The pickles and horseradish were somewhat over-whelming. My main issue for me is that while we liked the food overall, neither me to my colleague felt satisfied (three thin slices of salt beef) and went to Pret afterwards to get some more food. For Â£7 a portion, this is not a good outcome and I believe this restaurant will struggle because of this"
Harden's review of the reviews
The Observer's critic-in-chief heads to Manchester to try out the new Hawksmoor and stumbles across a veggie dining room, 1847, serving great food â€“ well, apart from the desserts. Read our roundup of restaurant news in Manchester and enter our Hawksmoor Manchester competition.
Meanwhile the Guardian's Marina O'Laughlin pays a visit to the much gushed about Kitty Fisher's
Everyone else love, love, loves it but Marina can't help but feel she's ended up at a house party she wasn't quite invited to, particularly as the restaurant staff seem allergic to answering the phone. We can attest to that having called them on at least 10 occasions without success.
The award for most ferocious review this week has to go to The Sunday Times's A A Gill
The critic has a thing or two to say about Mayfair's 'ridiculously overpriced' Mexican, Peyote, including: â€œ...fiddly, neurotic preparation with pale, polite taste and silly, parsimonious sharing plates that arenâ€™t bounteous or fun and are more like eating the catering pitch for a drug cartelâ€™s wedding.â€
Over at The Times, Giles Coren gives his opinion on Russian-imported pizza chain Bocconcino
â€œBocconcino isnâ€™t a bad restaurant. It just isnâ€™t a necessary restaurant.â€ At Â£202 for pizza and pasta it's not hard to see why Mr Coren might feel that way â€“ mind you, a Â£46 bottle of wine probably helped nudge the bill up.
And last but not least, Ms Maschler reviews Brindisa's new Morada Asador
The Standard's long-standing critic heads to the latest outpost of this tapas chain (in Soho) and finds the meats are the reason to flock here â€“ from the 'delectable' milk-fed lamb to theÂ Secreto Iberico.
