    What a great evening, and meal. The staff were very attentive, without being over the top. We were seated in the private dining area, which was lucky for us, so we could see what was going on in the main restaurant. Food was good. All in all, a lovely experience and treat. It was more expensive than we would normally go for, but good if you want a pampered experience.

    We used to visit when this restaurant was Little Social and loved it. The restaurant has now had a makeover and a new menu which we didn’t like as much. Having said that the meal we ate was lovely - no complaints and the staff were friendly.

    Some staff were not very friendly or attentive e.g. filling up water and wine glasses was very slow. I had originally opted for the set menu but than changed to the a la carte. I wish I had not changed my mind. The starter of the pork croquet was like a small brick in size, generous portion but not a croquet. It was very fatty and oily, which I did mention to the waiter but was told thats how it was. The main was fish, cod which was slightly underdone and the portion size was smaller than expected. It was good but not great. The dessert was the best, creme caramel, tastey and I could not fault it. Overall I was disappointed by the food and service.

    A very impressive first visit. We shared a starter of duck egg on mushrooms but I wished I had had it all myself. It was new to the menu ...scrumptious...we complimented the chef. Main was a burger which was delicious. The only down side was the wine was very expensive.

    Terrible! The system booked my reservation at the restaurant in Soho so I had to wait an hour to be seated.

    My daughters and I have been going for 3 years but last week we see that the standard had dropped not enough to warrant a complaint but a very very average meal, sorry but will not re visit
