SquareMeal Review of Kaspar's at The Savoy

Bronze Award

The Savoy’s star-studded history includes stories of Fred Astaire dancing on the rooftop and the entire courtyard being flooded to resemble a Venetian canal for a particularly fabulous party in 1905. It also features Kaspar the Cat, a three-foot-high sculpture created in 1926 to occupy the extra seat at unlucky tables of 13. Winston Churchill always reserved a spot for Kaspar whenever he ate here, and the sleek feline fits right in amid the glamorous art-deco surrounds of its riverside restaurant – all polished marble, silver leaf and Murano glass.

Seafood is the kitchen’s speciality (Kaspar would surely approve), with lots of luxury ingredients on offer and decadent fruits de mer platters available from the handsome seafood bar, which also serves up intricate sushi and sashimi. We love the reliable fixtures too: seafood pie and Dover sole with glossy brown butter, for example.

Carnivores will find steaks and grills among the fishy fare, while desserts are mostly modern takes on the classics – although our deconstructed peach Melba (a Savoy classic created here by legendary chef Escoffier) failed to hit our sweet spot. Wines perfectly complement the food and service is “excellent” – as you'd expect at The Savoy.

Good Pre Theatre Dinner
26 August 2016  
We went to celebrate my birthday before going to a show. Food is of a good standard and reasonable price,but mains come without anything, so price racks up when you add vegetables. Staff excellent, & thgey overheard my friends toasting me for my birthday, so my dessert plate was decorated with Happy Birthday written in chocolate - very nice touch

Good Set Menu

Had mackerel starter, nice, but difficult to eat as it was served in a deep dish sitting on what can only be described as cucumber soup. Main course of Rainbow trout excellent - just a shame you have to order a side dish to make it a proper meal - this of course adds £5 to the cost

Grand hotel so i was very excited about eating at Kaspar, menu looked interesting too. Unfortunately, on the whole it did not live up to my expectations. On the plus side – nice, clear, grand dining area with amazingly looking seafood bar with a massive chandelier. They bring you a little bread basket and the bread is very tasty. However, on the minus side I was sat down and the waiter came round after about 5 min to take my order, the problem is that i was not given the menu! Not a good start. I ordered my food and some wine. Food arrived pretty swiftly … but they forgot about the wine! And did not know what i ordered! Oh dear! Food itself – i had a smoked fish selection, maybe it was what happened before or maybe it is the food itself maybe smoked fish is not their strong point, either way i did not enjoy it. It lacked flavour and i struggled to make out the difference between the different types.

My dining comrades and I had been excited about a visit to Kaspar’s given its location in the beautifully refurbished Savoy hotel. Week-old restaurants inevitably have their teething problems and one should always read reviews (mine included) with a metaphorical pinch of salt, but the only one I had seen (Fay Maschler’s – a critic whom I generally respect) had lowered my expectations, given its relatively damning assessment. We found the atmosphere superb and the service highly attentive, but the food mostly unmemorable and the pricing inconsistent. There is no doubt that the Savoy’s dining room is a gem, large windows looking out onto the river, a high ceiling, sumptuous furnishing and an art deco finish. The tables were well-spaced and the chairs comfortable. It was also pleasing to hear the tinkle of the piano’s keys from the adjoining room. And, most people seemed to be enjoying themselves. However, it would be hard to say exactly what Kaspar’s is intending to achieve with its menu. Make no mistake, the restaurant positions itself as a “seafood bar and grill,” but if so, then why offer such pedestrian 1970’s-style mittel-Europa dishes such as Wiener schnitzel too? I struggle to imagine many of the same target dining market wanting to spend £80 on 30g of caviar, say, to start, and then £19 on a beef stew (‘Bourguignon’) and mash to follow. Two of our party began with the yellow fin tuna tartare. It was presented in a curiously shaped dish where it was impossible to place one’s cutlery conveniently, and the tartare itself was somewhat overwhelmed by the cream sauce. That my other comrade left half his Caesar salad spoke for itself. In terms of the mains, my monkfish kebab was ridiculously overpriced at £24 for just four small pieces of fish in a somewhat anaemic sauce. By contrast, its side of salad for just £3 (the price of all the sides) was a relative bargain, but scant compensation for the fish. My comrade’s Thai green seafood curry seemed a somewhat incongruous menu option in an ostensibly fine dining location, but was executed competently enough, although the waiter initially failed to bring the accompanying rice with it. The third member of our group bravely went for the schnitzel, commenting that he could not recall the last time he had eaten such a dish. The potato side looked, to my mind, tangibly more edible than the overly bread-crumbed veal main. At least our bottle of Gavi from Italy was a success, well-balanced and refreshing. It was not bad value either, at £45 for a bottle, but a note to more credit-constrained diners: the list starts at £32/bottle, so hardly what one could call good value in general. If you want a similar style of food, but executed much better, then go to the Wolseley or Scott’s. If you want a fun but none too consequential experience, then it is worth going here.
