    My wife and I had the tasting menu. Good food, really. But way too pricey.

    £20 Sazerac. Expensive but a perfect version of this classic cocktail

    I don't know about this Michelin star tbh. Had the set lunch, which was quite fresh except the soft boiled egg and shrimp, which had a bucket of butter at the bottom that was bit heavy for me.

    The pea starter is good but went downhill from there. The space is industrial chic with so few sound buffers that my ears were bleeding from the ambient sound. Service satisfactory. Will not be back.

    "The fish course featured the most traditional dish, slow-cooked salmon in a lightly foamed white wine sauce spiked with buttermilk...just right in all its detail." -The Guardian on TripExpert Read more

    Start the journey with a cocktail at the bar downstairs and have a fun chat with the bartender. Then let this octopus tentacle melt in your mouth. This place is simply amazing.

    Good cocktails and bar downstairs. Tasting menu was very disappointing.

    Be sure to try the Sloe Gin Punch with homemade sloe gin, Bombay Sapphire, hawthorn syrup, ginger ale, fresh fruits, mint, and cucumber. Read more

    Just be aware: they wouldn't serve you silverwears for the English asparagus, virgin rapseed oil mayo, and toasted hazelnuts starter.

    Just north of Charlotte Street, this place had a waiting list for months when it first opened. Worth trying out

    Rent out the rock n roll style basement bar for banging cocktails. There is a Michelin star chef upstairs too! http://barchick.com/best-place-to-throw-a-party-in-london/

    Sometimes you need to try something a bit different, and if you love beer why not try a beer cocktail? http://barchick.com/find-a-bar/london/dabbous

    Downstairs bar has good lighting & an industrial romantic look: but needs a little more furniture to be a proper alternative bustly place out of the hustle of Soho. Or is it 'cos we can dance later ;)

    Well worth the half a year wait.

    Was it good? Yes. Was it incredible? No. The menu is at £59 without service, for 7 dishes. The fish plates were exceptional, the deserts disappointing. Bar downstairs is cool while waiting. 3,5/5

    The famous eeg is not included in the set lunch. but with a set lunch you get 4 courses to come with it.

    The industrial chic setting comprises an upstairs dining room serving modern European cuisine and stylish basement bar specializing in seasonal cocktails with a twist such as the tasty Sloe Gin Punch.

    One of the hottest restaurants in town. You can wait up to 2 months for a table, so it pays to book early (out of necessity!) but uts definitely worth it.

    Sit down at the bar and ask for any of the outstanding selection of our good friend Oskar. You won't regret any of them.

    Try booking a table for lunch rather than dinner. There's a great value set–menu deal and you're more likely to be able to get in. My full review: http://forkingknife.com/

    Candlelit cocktails & you can order snacks from the small bites menu; the crispy, boneless, chicken wings with garlic aioli, or the £90 caviar if you’re rolling in it / using the company card. Read more

    Upstairs they serve stripped back fancy British food (Michelin star chef we may add), but it's the bad-ass cocktails in the industrial, rock n roll style basement bar that you should go and check out. Read more
