    Food was extremely good, especially the sea bass, tho' I would prefer to have been offered the chance of a glass of prosecco or just a glass of wine rather than the rather strange-tasting cocktail. It was pretty good value for the location & general stylishness of the place. My only caveat is that when we arrived quite early -- 12.30 pm -- a couple of tables by the window were vacant but we were seated one row back. When I asked if we could have a window table the greeter smilingly declined but didn't say why. Since everyone who ate there could confidently have been predicted to have preferred a window seat it would seem only fair to allocate them on a first come first served basis.

    Very impressed with the venue, food and service. The gin cocktails were a lovely start, and The beef Wellington and chocolate tort were outstanding, We had a lovely window table with outstanding views, and the rabies were a good size and not too close together. It was a wonderful dining experience.

    Very nice restaurant in a fabulous location.

    Good food and nice service made the evening enjoyable. The restaurant catered well for my friend who is gluten and dairy intolerant.

    The only small issue I had was when ordering tea at the end of the meal ... no soya milk!

    That said the whole evening was lovely and I would go again.

    View is obviously really nice, but the part that cut it was the food!
