Awful, awful, awful. I have eaten here 6 times over the years and Ive just watch it get progressively worse. Not only that, its horrendously overpriced for what it is: £40 for 2 courses. My scallop starter (that I paid a £5 supplement for) which consisted of 2 measly scallops sliced into halves was dry and overcooked and none of the flavours worked. The main of halibut was perfectly cooked but the sauce with the intermiggling of artichokes marinaded in vinegar was just a mess with the vinegar from the artichokes overpowering everything! Only artichokes marinaded in olive oil should ever be used in a dish. Because I was a on a date and they were paying, I thought it would be impolite to complain but I really wish I had especially when I consider how expensive the meal was. The service, cocktails and views are the restaurants saving grace so if they could just work on the food, it could go back to being an impressive place to eat.
