Almost shockingly elegant and calm after the buzz of the long-established Brasserie out front, 1776 is 1 Lombard Street’s fine-dining offer. A pale green room, dotted with dark-framed prints and chandeliers, provides the backdrop for decidedly high-end dishes with the option of some old-fashioned theatre; tartares of venison, Angus beef and tuna are all made tableside, and there’s a trolley for the statement roasts. As you might expect, prices are robust for luxe ideas such as red mullet with courgette tagliatelle and spiced brown shrimp beurre blanc, peppered fillet of fallow deer with crispy black cabbage, celeriac purée and cranberry sauce or herb-crusted rack of lamb with kale, oyster mushrooms and roasted figs. All of which makes the five-course set menu look very good value. On the wine side, seal that deal with something classy and French from the wine list: staff will provide discreet guidance, should you need it.

Enjoyable evening, with attentive service and cooking that was well-cooked and smartly presented. The head waiter was charming and efficiently professional.
Highlight was the tartare (available in both meat and fish versions) - beautiful both in flavour and texture; the fallow deer tartare is prepared at the table as an added treat.
The only criticism was the portion size of one of the mains - herb-crusted lamb which was well-received, but could have been more generous than the 2 tiny peices of lamb, which were barely larger than bite-sized.
The bistro area is a brighter and cheerier area, and would be good for a drink - but it was very noisy on the evening we visited, so the restaurant is a much better venue for a romantic evening.
Value for money was good, considering that it's located right in the heart of the City. We will be back!

Now and again in life one feels inspired to do something, and for me inspiration came from a lunch last week at 1776 at 1 Lombard Street leading me to write my first ever review.
Situated at the back of the bustling and well heeled restaurant that is 1 Lombard Street, 1776 exudes a city charm coupled with a hint of Nordic grace that immediately suggests to the diner that you are to be looked after on every level. The decor is sophisticated and smart yet maintaining a sense of comfortablity that one needs as when the food is produced it would be sacrilege to rush such a wonderful experience.
Our table of three chose a different dish for all courses allowing us to witness the full range of the chefs prowess as well as the incredibly capable front of house staff, the Tartar of fallow deer prepared at the table was declared exemplary and I myself had more than a touch of food envy for that dish! My Carppacio di Manzo with shavings of artichoke as well as the usual Parmesan rode rough shod over all other Carpaccios I have had before, the beef flattened to the tenderness it deserved without being too thin that ones feels youi need to scrape it off the plate rather than cut it. Cutlets of Fallow deer served with figs and seasonal vegetables was a masterclass in flavour and touch whilst the trolley that offers a different Roast on a daily basis was showcasing a Pork belly with some of the finest crackling that ones teeth can attest to.
Cheese followed by a biiter chocolate tart, fruit slice and Expresso Pannacotta and washed down with an excellent Tokai ended this culinary adventure on a very memorable note. The wine list presented on an i pad, which I am sure the City diners will love, was concise, well chosen and very good value.
Ratings are all very well and helpful in some cases, but all I would say is that now and again evryone deserves to have a lunch like this and 1776 can certainly provide it!
In the 1776 restaurant, the top notch Mayfair club (no membership required) has arrived in the City, discreetly positioned behind the establishment and recently upgraded brasserie 1 Lombard Street. The Neo Georgian Scandi Chic decor makes it equally suitable for a top date and top client dinner, which is a true achievement. The selection of tartars mixed at your table epitomizes the menu. Mine was fallow deer, a delectable, unique and surely soon to be classic signature dish. Perfectly chopped and, with the ability to determine very light seasoning, truly delicious. Very few places can both make a Martini that Montgomery would have approved of while presenting a wine list Jefferson would have recognized. No need to head to the West End any more.
