Something has gone very badly wrong here. When Richard Corrigan took this place over and revamped things, it was a roaring success and qucikly became our London fave, especially the downstairs grill/brasserie area. It had a great atmosphere, good value food and friendly efficient wait staff. However, our last 2 visits (once upstairs and once downstairs) have been disappointing in the extreme, and were marred by sloppy, disinterested and inattentive service on both occasions. The most recent visit (early October) my chosen dish was so oversalted as to be inedibble (both the Dover sole and the spinach) and had to be sent back. Our guests from abroad were not over impressed. The restaurant did not charge for the returned food, but by then the damage was done
It all smacks to me rather of complacency. Start off well, get the punters coming in and then relax. At these price levels there are certainly now better alternatives in London. Bentleys needs to either pull its socks up or drop its prices or else people will start going elsewhere Caveat emptor…
