    Not a great experience. The food took 1 hour to arrive despite us telling Staff that One of our party needed to leave in 1 hour. So she left without any lunch. 3 meals arrived but mine did not until another 10 mins later and was slightly cold. There was some bickering over the bill re the missed meal.

    This latest visit was for lunch and the service at Paul's was excellent as always, the restaurant team were courteous and polite. We opted for a light lunch and had eggs benedict and also smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, both served on toast. The sauce on the eggs benedict was very good and the smoked salmon soft and very light so we were both pleased with our choices.

    As always, the service at Paul's was excellent when I dined there last week - my steak requested as medium was cooked perfectly pink and the cocktails remain the best I've had in the Square Mile by far. One slight down side was that the music seems to have changed from traditionally French to pop music and the volume has been turned up several notches which isn't good when you want to eat and have a conversation yet find yourself shouting at your friends........I'd like the traditional French music to return too, that added a lovely touch in such a cosy restaurant. So the ambience has been marked down for this point, loud music is fine for bars but not for restaurants.

    Food was great and as expected. Good evening although one of our table of 10 had an issue with desert which was rectified by a refund.

    We did not feel this Paul was up to the usual standard, the seating on the sofas was too low for the tables, the tables were too marked and sticky. And we were not shown the special lunch menu. The meal itself was average, with our choice being the hamburger which was rather small.

    Great food and cocktails again at Tower 42, this time I went with a friend who had not dined there before. We both had steak, perfectly cooked as ordered, the cocktails are always a winner and the staff friendly and professional.
