Thought this restaurant would be a great idea to break up a visit to the wonderful Wallace Collection. There is so much there to see that it is difficult to take it in without a break. The situation is lovely, in the light-well of the building and it looks nice and feels airy. However as a restaurant I'm afraid it just does not work.
Having been given our menus with no comment it was incredibly frustrating to be told on ordering that so-and-so main course was off. Why not tell us when handing out the menus? Then to compound the issue the bottle of wine we ordered was also off! Mind you, when we did get a bottle it was parked in its ice bucket yards away from the table so we had to chase the waiters when our glasses were empty.
The food was – well small! Tasted and looked good but just felt seriously poor value for money. My Italian friends were impressed with the coffee which really did not make up for the rest of the meal. With about 40 restaurants within a 5 minute walk there really is no reason to go to the Wallace for lunch – even if visiting the Collection
