The place to go for well heeled shoppers, ladies who lunch, business meetings – in other words the Fifth Floor is an all rounder. Having been to the restaurant for lunch a few times now, both menu choice and service have left me feeling hopeful about the future of dining in department store restaurants. As its Harvey Nics, I knew better than to expect the usual stodgy microwaved ‘meals’ but quite how fresh the ingredients are and the seasonal nature of the menu's still amazes me. Fifth Floor serves up a market menu of seasonal goodies and a more rounded a la carte menu with innovative and flavour-balanced dishes such as gunard with caramelised onions and mushroom jus and a well cooked seabass with buttered leeks and asparagus. The wine list is extensive and serves up some refreshing new world wines as well as the old classics. Service is impeccable even when the going gets tough – and believe me the lunchtime rush can get pretty busy. For those that complain about the lack of complimentary bread available these a days – you want to head here – they can't get rid of the stuff and I had about three offers for a bread top up and its not ordinary bread – there's raisin, olive, rosemary… All in all a pleasant experience in nicely designed surroundings.
