I dined here once years ago when it first opened as Cipriani and I was sufficiently put off by their failing standards to stay well clear of the restaurant again. Sadly for me on this occasion, I was invited by a client and had no alternative but to accept graciously. I think deep down I probably believed that a lot can change in 5 or so years, but oh how wrong I was.
Accustomed to dining in some of London's best restaurants, I expect service and food of the highest standard in obscenely priced celeb-magnet joints like this. I'm no celebrity, but I believe that in life, you should get what you paid for. The service was beyond incompetent, you'd find better food at ‘Spaghetti House’ and the whole pretentious vibe of this place was exhausting. My poor host was riddled with embarassment whilst I smiled and reassured him that it was ok. Needless to say, I cut the meal short and took him for a drink at Claridges instead, where we were treated with the kind of courtesy you would apply to paying customers.
All I can say for ‘C’ London is that the ‘C’ clearly stands for ‘CRAP’. So unless you are a page 3 / WAG wannabee trying to meet a famous face, there are far better places to meet, greet and eat in London. The experience here is so ridiculously bad, it is absolutely laughable.
