I hadn't been to Crazy Bear for over a year when I recently returned. Already a year ago, I had been impressed by the different style, good atmosphere and the quality of the food. I must say that despite that, everything had improved. What pleased me the most was the excellent service which was shown, not only through timely delivery and discreetness, but also through the willingess to do something extra with the dessert since it was someone's birthday. It might sound like something you might and shoudl expect, but these expectations are so often unfulfilled.
The food itself is very good and well done. I can agree with some people I've spoken to who think that the kitchen is a bit too ambitious in its mixing between Asian and European, but I didn't mind much. The black cod was great, while the lamb was a bit greasy, but overall the food was in deed of very high quality.
After the dinner we spent some time trying the cocktails in the downstairs bar, which is an excellent place to finish or start your dinner experience. Also there, the service continued at its initial high standard. I'm not sure, however, how well the cocktails were made, by this time, it was late..
Overall, a great place that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. The only significant chink in the armor is the time slot system, but that seems to be unavoidable in London.
