I don't know why I expected less of Harvey Nick's restaurant, but it does the job very well. Service is polished and attentive, but not at all snooty as you'd expect from the ponciest department store around dahling. Their Sunday lunch has to be one of the best deals around – £19.50 for two courses (with loads of choice) plus a Bellini or Bloody Mary. A starter of baby artichokes with aioli and manchego was an unusual but appetite-whetting start to a meal. My husband's roast ribeye of beef with humoungous Yorkshire pud and exemplary vegetables was an elegant version of trad sunday lunch, while my rack of lamb with lentils was perfect. Portions are on the small side to it's a good idea to pay the extra £5 for 3 courses, although the puds dont match up to the quality of the other courses, and all seem pretty juvenile (e.g. waffles with ice cream & bananas). The all white decor is showing its age, especially the white leather chairs which are getting scruffy. Better at night when the weird (but cool) lighting disguises the wear & tear.
Great for a wander round the food hall afterwards.
