We had a great Sunday lunch. Location on canal at Little Venice was excellent and the ambiance of the restaurant very good. The food was excellent too in particular the chef's roast beef special.Service was efficient and friendly. We thought wine by the glass expensive. A very pleasant experience.

    The food at the Summerhouse is always good, but the service is very slow, even more so than the last time |i was there. The wait between courses was very long, and I'm not sure it can be explained away by claiming that the food is freshly cooked as this is the case in any decent restaurant.

    Saturday lunch with a friend. Service and food were of an excellent standard. Canal side view made the experience very relaxing. My only gripe is the lack of space between the tables. Fortunately, there were no loud parties or this could have been intrusive.

    The restaurant is tucked away from the mainstream foodie areas but we'll worth the trip.

    We dined on the London Restaurant Week menu with a good selection.
    The a la carte looked great and the food coming out to the surrounding tables suggested that we will come back for more.

    The waiting staff were friendly and provided a great service.

    Looking forward to dining there again... preferably in the summer.

    The food and service was excellent. The venue is really lovely, and the Sea Bass was really tasty.

    Lovely place full of atmosphere, what is a sham is that at 1.00 there was only one portion of haddock and chips left on the menu.......

    The food was up to it's usual standard although prepare for a shock when ordering the Eton Mess as it comes up pink with garish neon pink sauce drizzled over it. The staff need to up their game. We arrived twixt the end of brunch and beginning of lunch and the place was very quiet but each and every time we wanted a waiter or waitress we had to wait. Service was very slow and inattentive. The young waiter bringing the tea and coffee seemed confused by the items he was bringing offering the warm milk to me when I was having the tea. Weather wise we'd missed the good stuff by a couple of days and the plastic covers were down and it was cold. Thank God they provide shawls to keep warm.

    Lovely laid back atmosphere with a great location. How can you not be laid back when you are literally dining on the canal? The restaurant specialises in seafood - the whole lemon sole was delicious as was the sharing fish platter. Service was attentive and friendly. This is our second visit and it is without doubt my favourite London restaurant. The only thing I would mention, is check if there's a reservation window - we booked early, 6pm and were told we would need to leave our table at 8pm - they hadn't warned us of this BUT we got seats out on the back of the restaurant looking out over the canal, so had another couple of drinks there so it didn't matter at all on this occasion.
