Housed in a former Grade II-listed bank, 1 Lombard Street was opened in 1998 by former banker Soren Jessen and comprises a restaurant, brasserie, private dining and events rooms.
One of the best Dover Soles I've ever had.....filleted by the waiter and smothered with shrimps in butter
In general the food is good. There are a few meals that are a hit and miss. Many of the patrons are quite pretentious due to it being in the Banking District.
Poshest breakfast in town, awesome coffee, and very friendly staff. Highly recommended.
B etween Cornhill and Lombard Street there is a maze of narrow passageways and alleys created so that messengers could flit to and fro between all the different businesses that were based around here
Great brasserie in heart of City of London. Service was top
Well known, well located, city lunch spot for bankers, lawyers and such having business lunches. Not discreet except for big booths in back. Cooking is competent and traditional.
Bangers and mash was poor.
Coconut mouse and natural joghurt is a sensation.
Great for breakfast - the Muesli looked like dessert!
Ordered latte macchiato and the waiter asked if that's a latte or macchiato?! Then he decided to bring me a macchiato which is 4x stronger than a latte macchiato - not exactly what I wanted at 10pm!
Spiced pineapple, chilli and coriander sauce and coconut sorbet.. Combination tastes incredible.. An absolutely brilliant explosion of flavours.
The scallops are truly delicious!
Overpriced banker hangout, but a nice skylight nonetheless
Lombard Street is the banking centre of the city, it is named after the goldsmiths of Lombardy who settled here after being granted the land by King Edward I in the 12th century.
Loved the domed skylight over the bar; in contrast, the event room downstairs was not particularly special and can hear kitchen noise when the door gets opened (eg, when the server brings food)
Nice degustation menu...excellent surroundings
