Judging by all the previous reviews, I must have had a bad experience. We started in the bar which was great, good cocktails and fantastic service. In the restaurant however, while the service was very good, the food was disappointing. My group have done a number of the tasting menus around London and this really lacked the wow factor. My crab starter hadn't been properly de-shelled and every other course seemed to have a serious lack of seasoning, barring my friend’s duck which appeared to have been seasoned for everyone and was ludicrously salty. I also tried the other main course option which was lamb, liberally sprinkled in cumin which was also underwhelming. The only reason I rated the service as 8 and not higher is because the waiter seemed totally unprepared for my “not good” response to his question of “how was it?” At £220 a head (we had some good wine) it was not a patch on Le Gavroche or Hibiscus – the 2 previous tasting menus we had.
