The Botanist has already fallen on hard times.
Once a fan of the Botanist, having gone to the restaurant during opening week for a mid-week dinner, then the following week for Sunday lunch, and then subsequently on several other occasions since its opening, I have regrettably witnessed a slip in both the quality of food and standards of service.
The quality and execution of dishes has deteriorated over the last couple of months. Staple dishes on the menu such as the botanist seasonal salad, has gone from a contemporary delicious mix of seasonal ingredients, to a dreary sludge caused by over-enthusiastic pouring of dressing. Other dishes such as the sunday roast beef have also slipped in standards.
Service is the Botanists' main weakness though, with rude and inept waiting staff.
These negative points made, there is one very positive point to made about the Botanist, and that is in the cocktails. They are fantastic, and the venue is a great place to enjoy a drink and watch the hustle and bustle around sloane square.
