    My friend and I had lunch on the Star Deal arrangement, which was excellent value for money. The food was exceptionally good and well presented. The staff were pleasant and helpful. This is the second time that we have dined here and we can highly recommend this restaurant.

    This is a very classy restaurant. Nice decor, quiet surroundings with friendly and efficient staff - all the right ingredients for a great dining experience. I had booked one of the Star Deals which usually have limited choices for a 3 course menu but with this particular one we could choose from the a la carte menu. The food was excellent and was very reasonably priced. We were a party of 6 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The evening was very relaxed and we could take as long as we liked over each course. This made for a very pleasant and enjoyable evening.

    Large restaurant which was almost empty at lunch time. We had the three courses and a glass of champagne deal, all of which was very good and good value. Service was also good as should be expected with so few patrons.

    My girlfriend and I booked this restaurant on at the last minute for a Saturday night meal with another couple and were not sure what to expect. Hotel restaurants are a sometimes a risk but this is not so at the Petrichor, what a place!

    We were immediately reassured on arrival when we were greeted by a lovely staff and shown to our table and given a glass of nice champagne. From there on the meal proceeded to be the nicest best value dining experiences we've had in a long long time.

    The menu is varied and well thought out (very difficult to choose!), the deal gives you access to everything (not just a seperate menu leaving you feel like a second class customer as if often the case) and our waiter kindly explained the terms of the deal in a lovely no nonsense manner. There is simply no pretence here, the food is fantastic, the staff polite and attentive.

    Our starters, Mains and desserts were top class, perfectly cooked and full of taste present to us simultaneously by numerous waiting staff at once. Such careful coordination is very rare but to be commended.

    This is one of London's bargains, at £40 a head for champagne, three courses and (not included in the deal) an extra bottle of wine and 2 cocktails you can't go wrong. We wish we'd got the names of the head waiter/ manager that served us, he was brilliant. We will definitely be going back.

    We have dined, both for lunch and dinner, at the "Petrichor" several times over the last 2 years and have never been disappointed. We have been as a couple, as groups of four and as a birthday celebration for 12 people. On each occasion we have been very satisfied with the food, the value and the excellent service from the very pleasant staff.
