    Attention to detail was unbelievable ! Service was at its best and each and every person was helpful, polite, efficient and professional . I cannot pick a favourite as every course was amazing. This will, from now on,bea birthday tradition. I have dined in many five star and Michelin restaurants but dining at Sketch is top notch

    My husband took me to Sketch for my birthday and overall we enjoyed the experience. Food was really good, not just the presentation but also everything tasted delicious. They bring canapes before any starters- I think if I knew this, I wouldn't have ordered any starter as it was quite a nice experience on its own and also filling before the main course. The waiter asked whether we had any allergies etc. and when I told them I was pregnant, they were very careful with the ingredients and changed some bits for me. Everyone was very polite, friendly and it was in no way pretentious. It is of course expensive (we paid 240 with only 1 glass of wine, 1 starter, 2 main and a dessert) but it really is justified. Few constructive feedback for the restaurant and the team though- The table we were sitting, was next to the entrance and cheese stand. It was so peaceful in the beginning but at the end of the dinner, the restaurant got busy and all waiters were walking quite fast and heavily, which caused the floor shaking. Some guests asked for the cheese selection, so there were constantly waiters around us coming and going- which actually ruined the experience a little bit at the end and I just wanted to leave. I appreciate everyone needs to be quick, but we noticed some waiters were walking quiet heavily compared to others, one of them even hit our chair by mistake. For everyday restaurants, not a problem but this is probably once in a while for most people so it's important that you have a nice peaceful meal. I was also disappointed by the chocolate souffle- it was too big compared to the orange sorbet (which melted and finished in literally 5 minutes) and not necessarily as amazing as the other food we tasted. We also had to ask twice for drink orders and the bill. As everyone has a task, not all waiters can help you with your request- it might be best if you could have few people who could be responsible for an area. Thank you

    Great food that's improved over the years. We love many small intricate dishes, rather than 3 large courses, so this place is ideal. Innovative dishes, beautifully presented. Staff are warm and friendly, yet highly efficient. We had a time limit as we had an appointment after lunch, which was smoothly met with little fuss and urgency. Quirky interior, really fun art pieces that change regularly. A wonderful blend of a good restaurant and a good gallery!

    Absolutely superb with excellent service, outstanding food and beautiful presentation. Extra compliments to the chef for originality of methods of preparation and combinations of textures, temperatures and flavours. Outstanding!
