Possibly my favorite place in London; I have been coming here for years.
The service is faultless – ensure on booking however you distingusih between the bistro, the main restaraunt and the more intimate restaraunt and where you would like to be seated.
The menu is really imaginative – without being overly fussy. Flavours are not drowned and too complex – but all the same some superb dishes. The chef used to be at the Bleeding Hart, Hatton garden – and moving here has really established it as a great place to dine.
The wine list – as part of the Bleeding Hart sisterhood – is fantastic. And you can be assured of a sip of a few before you make a tough choice. On the other hand – if you just want a glass of house, it's going to great wine, which has been breathing, is at the right temperature, rather than thinly disguised paint thinner as is so othen the case.
Finally the Maitre De – A great man. A perfect choice, knows his wine impeccably, he and the chef work perfectly, and the place runs like clockwork as a result.
In a word – go.
