Well you wouldn't expect anything else than a top score for one of Gordon Ramsey's restaurants would you?
We opted for the Taster menu complete with wine, to start with we had Chilled Melon soup with salt water prawns, followed by Salmon and Crab with Chili, Lime, coriander and grapefruit these where complimented by the excellent choice of wines made by the wine waiter.
The next course of Asparagus, pea and broad bean salad with feta cheese was again as expected excellent. Next course was seared Loin of Tuna, fennel, red onion and quail's egg in a black pepper sauce, followed by Braised Cornish Lamb again we were not disappointed.
After these five courses we wondered if we should opt for the British Cheeses (hey in for a penny) so succumbed to these, followed by the hot chocolate fondue with marshmallows, biscotti and fruit Kebabs.
All in all an excellent evening and meal served by professional knowledgeable staff. If I had to make one criticism it would be nicer to have a bit more space between the tables as I did feel a bit on top of each other.
Having previously eaten at one of Ramsey’s other restaurants the Maze I would say the Maze did have an extra edge to this one but don't worry I would be surprised if you are disappointed after visiting here.
So if you want to spoil someone put this on your list.
Had very high hopes for this place as you can imagine!
We went for lunch, I had off the set menu and my partner had off the normal menu. The difference in quality was incredible! The set menu was nice but by no means anywhere near the quality and impressiveness of the standard menu so I would advise spending a little bit more and going for that.
The service wasn’t fantastic, the waiter was excellent but the somilier and guy who cleared the tables etc. were a bit rude.
The setting is lovely and it was a ncie experience but I would recommend the set menu.
It is much easier to get a table here than Claridge’s or 68 Royal Hospital Road and the reason for that is quite simply - it is no way near as good. In fact the restaurant often has special promotional offers on london-eating and toptable so people obviously aren’t queuing up to eat here. Despite this, we had an enjoyable dinner here (though I can’t remember what I had - therefore it wasn’t very memorable) and would eat here again perhaps with a special offer. Would recommend to those who want the “Gordon Ramsay experience” perhaps to take friends from out of town but that can’t get into the two mentioned above.
Came here for my last birthday. Was very excited and managed to book quite late considering it was a Friday we went. Was looking forward to tasting some of Gordan Ramsey’s highlights. I had a scallop starter, a little on the small side but great presentation! Each scallop must have been cut into thirds and placed on shells with a cut of apple on top. Then I opted for the lamb and potatoes, it was surprisingly big and o so tender. My friend chose the rib eye steak and it must have been the biggest rib-eye we had both seen. We were both pleasantly surprised at the size as we were expecting a big plate with a tiny portion in the middle! We finished off with a dessert and coffee. It was a delightful evening with friendly staff! Great for an anniversary!
