    Decent enough food and wine but diabolical and amateur management and service. It was a bit like eating at Fawlty Towers...

    very good value for money and excellent location

    Lovely Evening at Toms Kitchen. Great offer through book a table. Fixed menu not big but we would have been happy to order any of the choices on the menu. We had a window table overlooking the Thames and great view of the eye lit up. The staff were very attentive and friendly. We were not rushed, and the bill was no different to one of the large chains, so to get food of this quality for the same price of a chain was great value. The bill came to a total £70 for the 3 courses, prosecco, coffee, an additional side order, 2additional drinks and tip. Would definitely recommend.

    Great place. We did the star deal menu & it was all delicious especially the plaice. Service was excellent.

    I went to Tom's kitchen in Canary Wharf a few weeks ago with the same star deal as Somerset House. We totally loved it so decided to try another location with the same menu. The plaice for main course in Canary Wharf was much bigger than Somerset House. I was disappointed as the same dish in different location were not the same portion.

    Other courses were all right.

    Booking on line really easy.
    Lovely view over the terrace and river. Friendly, helpful and Unrushed service. Chose Toms burger and roast of the day. Both delicious. Belly pork with all the trimmings was cooked to perfection. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thank you.

    Poor service. Average food. No drinks offered or drinks menu shown.
    Would recommend more for a light lunch than a dinner experience
