    It was the first time for us to dine at The Lanesborough. We were well received and the environment was very comfortable, with plenty of space between tables. We took the £39 menu . The choices for each course were excellent and the mis en bouche was very tasty. I took the perfect egg, which was indeed very good and the lamb was . delicious.. We all took the chocolate ball which, again was excellent. Together with the included glass of champagne the whole meal was excellent value.

    This was a second visit to Celeste, this time for an evening meal, previously for lunch. My earlier experience had been so outstanding, that a return visit was in order. We had booked a three course meal with a glass of fizz and on the evening decided to have the wine pairings. The setting was magical, service impeccable and wine, selected by the sommelier to match each course, was divine. The presentation of the food was splendid. Indeed, the whole evening was lovely. However, the food, flavours, we felt, could only be described as ‘fine’ - nothing actually wrong, but certainly looked prettier than they tasted, with a lack of ‘wow’ which had been present during an earlier visit. However, the staff, who reacted to our demeanour and showed a sense of humour, as well as professionalism, made the day. The ‘surprise’, after dinner, was welcome.

    This is one of my favourite restaurants. The food is always excellent here. There were 8 of us and we chose from the set menu. Everyone’s was very tasty and my mackerel starter was the most delicious thing I’ve eaten for a long time. The service this time was not so good. Our wine glasses remained empty for a while and I had to ask someone to pour more wine and at the end I had to go to the desk and ask for our bill. We had the set meal but we also had 8 cocktails and 3 bottles of wine. We probably would have had more wine if the service was better. I would still go again though. Perhaps s table of 8 were too many people for them.

    The service in this place is absolutely incredible. Food was delicious, but really the service made it amazing. The atmosphere and decor is gorgeous and we had a fantastic time. They brought us loads of extras as we were celebrating an anniversary and we really enjoyed the evening.
