Square Meal Review of Kaspar's Seafood Bar & Grill ?

Replacing the Savoy’s distinguished River Restaurant, this new incarnation ought to have it all – lavish art-deco styling, sleek marble floors, chandeliers, gorgeous waterside views and an ‘amazing’ seafood bar that pays homage to Kaspar (a famous three-foot-high cat sculpture originally wheeled out to occupy the extra seat at unlucky tables of 13 diners). However, critics and diners alike have been generally underwhelmed, citing ‘unmemorable’ food, ‘inconsistent’ pricing, off-key service and a haphazard menu that takes in everything from tuna tartare to ‘pedestrian 1970s dishes’ such as wiener schnitzel. Given the Savoy’s auspicious culinary heritage (Escoffier once manned the stoves here), it’s disappointing that simpler items have become the safest bets: try the generous lobster club or opt for garlicky snails followed by salmon fillet with mash and seafood nage from the varied theatre menu.

    SilverSpoon London :: Kaspar's

    Our ladies lunch would be at Kaspar's, The Savoy's gorgeous art deco seafood restaurant. It's all mirrors, glass and twinkles, with a gorgeous marble floor and a silver ceiling. You definitely know you're in one of London's five star plus hotels. The Savoy is old-fashioned glamour at its best; a string of pearls, a flapper dress and a cloche hat and I could be transported back to the roaring twenties... Poor Caroline had transport problems but in this gorgeous setting with champagne and fresh bread I definitely didn't mind waiting!...

Occupying the space that was formerly home to the River Restaurant, the restaurant is split into a large bar and grill area, and a smaller restaurant area, with large windows providing panoramic views over the Thames. The look of the place is glitzy brasserie style, with a touch of the theatrical (in keeping with the hotel’s neighbourhood.)...
