To be “blown away by the decor” – with its “beautiful high ceiling and sense of spaciousness” – is still the dominant reaction to Jason Atherton’s glam dining room inside Ian Shrager’s Edition hotel, north of Oxford Street. “Wish the food could be at the same level as the interior” is another common theme, however, as is ever-more “arrogant” or “haphazard” service, and there’s a general feeling that, on current form, the place is “serving a transient market with its glorious setting rather than focussing on the product and delivery”.

The “awesome” setting of its “beautiful” interior provides one of London’s most impressive backdrops for a meal at this grand dining room, north of Oxford Street (recommended for romance, but especially for business). Most reports give a thumbs-up to the “pricey-but-solid” cuisine overseen by Jason Atherton, but – especially at the price – results can be “rather forgettable” (and there were a couple of disastrous meals reported this year). Afternoon teas and Sunday roasts are a recent innovation.

“The magnificent room”“not an intimate affair, but a breathtaking and fun showpiece” that “makes you feel glamorous and special” – underpins the appeal of this “impressively grand” chamber, north of Oxford Street. The modern British cuisine (overseen by Jason Atherton) is “OK”, but “unduly expensive”“you’re there for the ambience”. Top Tip – “brunch here makes for a perfect Sunday morning”.

“A wow of a space” (“formerly a vast, voluminous banking hall”) provides “a sunning backdrop” to a meal at what fans say is “London’s chicest dining room”, north of Oxford Street. It can seem like a case of “style over substance” though – the food (overseen by Jason Atherton) is “good but not amazing”, and at the punishing price can seem “a huge let down”.
