Sample Tom Aikens restaurant favourites like Cornish trout with roast cauliflower & sea vegetables, or duck breast with chicory & carrot crush.

Dined during London Restaurant Festival pre-theatre. Good food and great service.

very slow service, had to ask for our drinks twice and then ask if we could order. Food was okay, but more like pub grub then what you would expect from Tom Aikens. I will not be returning.

The feel of the restaurant was very nice and fresh. Loved the pig starter.

Lovely setting and on the while well accomplished dishes. Particularly liked the pig cheek and black pudding croquettes and haddock with cheese risotto. The wait between mains and desserts was too long (to be fair the waiter apologised) and the chocolate fondant slightly undergone for my taste but overall a good dining experience.

Somerset House is such a handsome location for Tom's Kitchen which is small and noisy but with delicious food, beautifully presented.

We came here for dinner as part of the London Food Festival. The menu on offer was a great deal and as I had never been to a Tom's Restaurant before I thought we would give it a go. The service was patchy but friendly and the food was decent but not overwhelming. My cured fish for entree was tasty and the most interesting of the three dishes I had. The beef and guinness stew for mains was also a nice flavour but lacked any sort of interest. It seemed quite mass prepared and lacked love. I had been looking forward to my chocolate and peanut fondant for dessert and I can't say anything too negative about it, it certainly didn't wow me. It lacked richness and chocolate flavour.
The staff did, however, deliver a birthday dessert as I had requested and were very friendly. Although one waitress kept curtsying every time she served us which was lovely but a little excessive.
I enjoyed my meal but wouldn't necessarily rush back. The building was amazing but I found the lighting very bright. Some slightly more dimmed lights would have attached a touch of class.
