What a swish and glamorous entrance! A dimly lit entrance hallway where you are greeted by a host and then whisked up in a lift to the top floor where we exited into another secondary reception and led into the dimly lit bar. Lovely atmosphere populated by what is undoubtedly a ‘beautiful’ crowd with guys in suits and girls all dressed up for a night of cocktails, food and maybe a little debauchery later on!
I was with a group of six girls and we were definitely out on a mission to have a night to remember. The drinks were lovely with a long list of cocktails and champagne although the house champagne of Louis Roederer was not to my taste. The staff at the bar were really friendly and accommodated us well (might have been the dresses though!)
Dinner was almost as good. Sushi was really fresh and delicate and the scallops were heavenly, being fat, juicy, balanced with the stickiest of sticky rice. Crab rolls were also great. A shame then the miso soup was quite insipid, the miso cod way over cooked even for us girls and the beef fillet chewy. Some great, some average then. However the biggest disappointment was the staff who were just horrid. Not only did they not care, they practically threw our dishes onto the table, they left empty glasses cluttering up all the space and looked down their noses at us when we raised a complaint. Really wasn't what any of us were expecting and one of our party just wanted to leave.
The receptionist on the way out was very nice though and had the decency to listen to our comments and said she would pass it on to a senior manager. Whether or not it will happen I don't know, but it makes me pause for thought when I think about going back again. Maybe just for the drinks at the bar. Oh, and the view over Oxford Street is such a wow factor it's worth going just for that.
