Restaurant Diner Reviews
"great place, well priced lunch deal suitable for business lunches, mums, pushchairs etc, fantastic terrace that gets very busy and cute private room for the wine class we did there today on New South African Wines. Huge wines by the glass selection"
"Our party of three visited this restaurant on 22nd September. The first course foie gras terrine (Â£14) was insipid. The Pappardelle Rabbit (Â£17 main course size) consisted of a small bowl of pasta with a scintilla of sauce. My duck confit (Â£17) was bland and had clearly not been made in the traditional Gallic way by curing, slow cooking in fat for several hours and reheating. The first course Burrata Salad and the main course Grilled Octopus were correct. Wines: the Hungarian Furmint was good as was the Carignan, both wines chosen from the cheapest on the list."
"Visiting for a pre opera dinner once again it is difficult to fault Cote in Covent Garden. This is a large restaurant that is always packed from about 5.45 until 7.15 when everyone disappears to the shows. Yet the staff are observant and make that special effort to ensure you are going to get all your food on time and the food if not the highest gastronomic experience is always predictable and reliable."
"Superb dim-sum! Delicate, balanced and obviously hand/home made. Good enough to rival the best that Queensway has to offer. Terrible service, but isn't that part of the package with good dim-sum?"
"Remember to duck under the ridiculously low ceiling beams in this ancient former farmhouse and you will enjoy a delicious meal here, served by very enthusiastic staff. Otherwise you are going to have a headache compounded by the hefty mark up on ordinary wines! However, their set lunch remains good value."
"Competent all-round, with the added advantage of a largish terrace (i.e. pavement) just off Fulham Road, which is great for al fresco dining on a hot summer evening."
"This place is always busy; its popularity is a testament to the great food and affordable prices. Dining here is casual but not rushed, you can linger over one of the many cocktails on offer. There's a good selection of dishes, including noodles and rice or lighter options such as salads. Many dishes have a kick to them with spicy sauces. Food is cooked in an open kitchen which makes for constant entertainment. Service was mixed- a bit too attentive at first and later on we struggled to get noticed. Overall, I'd recommend this place for a mid-week dinner, although an alternative Korean restaurant, Ippudo, down the road provides stiff competition."
"Visited for lunch and was shocked by the prices for what really looks like a pub rather than a restaurant. Having already sat down we perused and chose from the incredibly limited menu. Service was good and when food arrived it was well prepared and ok in presentation. However there were only a few diners at 1.00pm which I think spoke volumes and we should have realised there are other and significantly cheaper options elsewhere Indeed on leaving we walked by several other more elegant looking places all of which offered a lunchtime prix fixe menu which in the circumstances would have been better. Will not be returning."
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.
