The dining room had character, was clean and beautifully laid out, the service was friendly and efficient, the food was tasty and everything that one would expect from having read the menu. It was excellent value and will almost certainly be taking my staff there for Christmas lunch.

    Ideal location for pre theatre dining, staff attentive and efficient, food is good although modest portions and at the higher end of pricing

    Excellent food, discreet efficient service - perfect for supper before heading to the Royal Albert Hall.

    did not stay at hotel but ate at their restaurant - Bistro 190. To set context this was a pre theatre dinner. Bistro decor as per pictures on web site. On a positive note the broccoli soup and fish main course was good. My steak tartare was bland and lamb shank was very average. Truffle chips a tad soggy but cabbage good. Table service good but did forget to top up mayonnaise for chips. Margaritas - our cocktail of choice were "thin". Other Negatives included - [...] though coats taken from us it was disappointing to find one of them - £2000 Belstaff on floor by hangers. Would we go back again - no.

    Great location for the Albert Hall - we did late lunch prior to 5pm show - only slight disappointment was there was just the one set menu - a choice of three dishes each course which was quite limited once you took out the vegetarian options but that said the food was very good and great value for money - have used several times and will do again

    Dined Lunch-time on Sunday. A number of items on the menu were scored out and when we ordered dessert we were informed that particular item was also off. Food that was on was good but not outstanding.

    Poor welcome. Tiny portions. Some of menu not available. Overpriced. We were hosting two friends and found the whole experience embarrassing.

    My wife and I arrived at 4:45 pm for a 5:30pm meal prior to our visit to the RAH so we took advantage of the hotel bar for an aperitif. This was cosy and friendly and very relaxing. The waiter service for the meal was excellent. The waiters were aware that most people had booked as a pre theatre meal for the RAH but whilst they clearly had one eye on the clock the service wasn't rushed and we had plenty of time to relax over a coffee afterwards. The food was good. We both chose the pork fillet for main which was well cooked and tender but could have been perhaps a little hotter. We strolled to the RAH at just after 7pm which took all of 3 minutes. An ideal location. We would definitely eat here again.

    The Albert Hall is very near. We enjoyed a drink in a quiet corner before eating. We dined at 7pm after the preformance. The restaurant was very busy but our table was waiting for us. We were asked if we were in a hurry but as we had been to the show we said we were wanting a relaxing meal. The service was very good and at the speed we wanted. We would all go back again.

    We ate early, going to the Albert Hall for Messiah and the choice was good. I chose turkey, my two guests lamb and we were all pleased with those. Less pleasing was a minute individual Christmas pudding that tasted of fat and cardboard. But the coffee was excellent and the service friendly and efficient
