    Everything was perfect. Delightful decor, friendly, efficient, and unobtrusive staff, and a delicious meal. The mushroom soup was scrumptious, and whole plaice/pannacotta delicious.

    The restaurant setting was gorgeous and the staff so lovely and helpful. They even had a live singer in the bar next door we could hear. Unfortunately, despire it being the week before Christmas the place was dead and except for when the singer was on the music did not suit the venue at all. The food was not of sufficient quality to justify the price but the wine was fab, we’ll recommend, generous serves and well priced. In addition, I booked a deal at £30/35 which showed on my confirmation emails, but was only offered a £45/50 deal which made me want to leave straight away.

    Really amazing dining experience. Specific waiters for different parts (wine,food) super friendly, great decore, great price and fab location. Had the pre theatre set menu and every course was delicious. I’d recommend the set menu over the al a carte strangely.

    A nice dining room, location chosen for its proximity to Buckingham Palace for our visit later. Great value carvery lunch for £24 for two courses. Nice atmosphere and very attentive staff. I have also had afternoon tea there on a previous visit which was also very good.

    I am going to sound odd but I didn't realise that this restaurant was in the Reuben's hotel (first mistake was we kept walking past it not realising!) once inside the service was amazing and the food was lovely with your standard carvary set up. We did feel a little underdressed as wasn't prepared for such an extravagant setting. The staff were polite and friendly, and had a wonderful time!
