SquareMeal Review of Gallery Restaurant

Surrounded by windows overlooking Jermyn Street and Duke Street on one side and Fortnum's famous Food Hall on the other, The Gallery makes an ideal pit stop and refuelling point between stints of shopping and browsing. The kitchen offers a ‘Taste of the Food Hall’, and the menu casts its net wide: mackerel fillet on a mound of potato and dill salad has gone down well, but you might also find anything from steak tartare or veal and bacon terrine with green peppercorn sauce to line-caught sea bass with braised fennel, tomato and saffron vierge or ox-cheek bourguignon with creamy mash. For afters, perhaps try pineapple carpaccio or flourless Valrhona chocolate pudding with vanilla mascarpone. The food passes muster, although “seriously embarrassing service” ruined the experience for one disgruntled visitor.

Adrian C. 06 April 2013

Popped in for a spot of lunch with my wife and had a rather nice window table overlooking Jermyn Street. She ordered a starter and main course and I did likewise. I had a mackerel fillet on a mound of dill potato salad and a spicy Gnocchi main dish. The food was ok. Simply that. Service however was a disaster. Spilled dishes, wrong dishes bought and all that when we finally were able to order. Seriously embarrassing. The waitress spoke virtually no English and we spend 4 or 5 minutes trying to explain what we wanted eventually having to ask another waiter to return the menu's that had been taken from us so we could show her (We were unable to even get her to bring the menu's back). She then copied from the menu to her order pad. Seriously … I get how everyone wants to lower costs but what's the point in hiring someone who is going to interface with your customers who can't speak English. Surely there are other jobs she could be helping with? Anyway the atmosphere was nice, the people around us were mainly tourists and despite keeping it simple with no wine as we were shopping that day the bill was still over £100. I guess when you have no end of tourists who are unlikely to complain then food can be average and you can make a killing.
