    Very thoughtful and elegant dining experience. The service was outstanding and it was such a joy to see each room decorated for Christmas.

    Overall my wife and myself had a fantastic time at Sketch. Amazing service and food. Unfortunately however the next day I came down with a rather nasty case of food poisoning. Which obviously put a bit of damper on the whole experience

    I booked Sketch with the highest of expectations and they were exceeded on EVERY level! I've never been anywhere that has been so highly reviewed, yet still managed to over deliver on my expectation. It was magical. The service, the dining, the ambiance took perfect to another level for me. In five words, delight, bewitch, dazzle, glow and tingle! It was a spectacular cacophony of elegance and extravagant cool. Things that shouldn't work, and you'd never dream of putting side by side, not only did but exploded into a never ending stream of sunshine and rainbows. I now believe in unicorns too! If you can only visit one place, this is it! Whatever your taste in food, drink or surroundings Sketch not only has it, it delivers it in a manner than cannot be equaled. Yeah! I was impressed. The staff could not have been more helpful from beginning to end, and I have more photos that you could ever imagine possible! Wow! Just wow! And finally..... my guest was vegan, and they adapted the tasting menu without hesitation or compromise. I'm very reluctant to recommend anywhere, but I'd not hesitate to recommend Sketch, the wonderland!

    Incredible truffle taglioni and lobster bisque. Faultless service, incredible ambience and theatre.

    Nice atmosphere and great, eclectic dining room. Wine list was super and service good. Both my wife and I thought the food was hit and miss - some of the dishes seemed to be over complicated (they all looked great though). Lamb was a particular disappointment - over cooked and limp, somehow at the same time. Deserts fantastic. All in all, worth it for the location, room and wine. Don’t expect Michelin quality in the food though. 4/5 stars.

    Nice surprise! Great tasting menu with surprising flavours. The venue is a spectacular mixture of different style - the very relaxed athmosphere contributes to a great experience. Definetely earned its rating

    A real culinary experience! We were lucky to have chosen this time of the year when they have the Mayfair flower show all over the restaurant. Bothe me and my husband had the tasting menu (meat and fish), and we absolutely loved it. Very artistic food presentation, and lots of flavors and varieries. Excellent services from our servers and sommelier (Maxime). Truly a fantastic and great experience.
