The dining experience at the Oval was superb. All the dishes were excellent. A really nice touch was the waiter heard us toasting our anniversary and surprised us with a little cake towards the end of our meal.
The staff were welcoming and both food and service was excellent
As you walk in you get a lot of Cigar smell. This was off putting.
Nothing really to shout about in terms of food
Beautiful surroundings, wonderful food and fantastic service- will definitely go again.
Fantastic experience . Booked the star deal 3 courses , a glass of Bellini and tea/coffee . From the minute we walked through the doors of the hotel , we were greeted warmly at every stage ( atvtge door , concierge , reception then finally the restaurant reception . It was a Monday evening and we were the only three in the restaurant but the restaurant only seats about 20 so it didn’t feel odd at all .The service was fantastic . Michaela and Jessica were excellent servers; Efficient, Friendly and smiley and ensured that our friend with allergies was very well catered for . The food was delicious and beautifully presented . We were given assorted freshly baked bread and olive oil .We all had the salad with mozzarella for starters and sea bass for our main course . For dessert two of us had the Crete brûlée and the other artisan ice cream . All absolutely delicious .
Food was exceptional. The hotel is very welcoming and the Oval Room is a room that has a lovely ambiance.
Very enjoyable lunch in fabulous surroundings. Service was friendly and attentive.
The restaurant is small (seats 22 people), but is beautifully designed with an intimate but decadent feeling. The staff were so kind and attentive. We weren't that impressed with the starters or main's, but the dessert's were lovely. They also did a congratulations plate with macaroons which was lovely. The fish starter didn't seem to go well with everything on the plate, and the seasonal salad starter, just looked like a large salad placed on a plate with some dressing, so wasn't very exciting. I had the veal tagliatelle for main, and the colour for both the meat and pasta, was a uniform pinky brown colour which was not appealing. The staff were lovely to offer another dish. I think the restaurant could importantly be improved by making some changes to the menu, as everything else made for a lovely experience.
We enjoyed our first visit enormously. Amazing staff nothing too much trouble escorting us to the bus stop and looking up the time of the next 22 bus. We enjoyed the delicious food enormously and the setbmenu including drinks and coffee exceptional value.
Very nice restaurant with attentive staff. This is an upscale place, great for special occasions (a birthday in our case).
The food from the set 3-course menu tasted nice and was well-presented. The place is rather small, but nicely decorated.
