    The food was good but pricey. Also, I had asked repeatedly for a window table for our party of 8 only to be given a table at the entrance; that is really unacceptable when the restaurant requires a guarantee for the booking. Also, I found the staff to be uncoordinated. Not impressed.

    The setting was lovely and the food really very good, but the service was terrible- we waited an hour between starters and main course and had to push for everything- water, menus, desserts etc.

    Good value set lunch with the add on of a wine pairing, well cooked and presented. Plenty of choice and lovely Thames Southbank views.

    Always a lovely experience and did not disappoint in this occasion. Service is tip top, stylish and fits the surroundings. The food is tasty and modest portions but good for lunch.

    We didn't receive our free glass of champagne. The food was average. Got a feeling it was pretending to be something it wasn't. Overly attentive staff breaking conversation but had to prompt sommelier for top up from our bottle.

    Good range of options on the set lunchtime menu. Exceptional service and wasn't rushed so we could enjoy our coffees without being pressured to leave.
