Went here with my girlfriend for a casual Saturday dinner in December. We ate at the Grill, where they were offering a set course menu at a highly compelling price (especially considering its tier 1 London location!). What struck us upon entry was the service. Shockingly few restaurants in London seem to get the basics right, but Le Pont de... More

Christmas Eve 2016. Fine dining with a view. The food was excellent, their Christmas menu varied enough while still reasonably priced. The A la Carte menu, definitely priced for fine dining. The food was very good, and interesting without requiring a certain palate. The staff and service is exceptional, that is where my 5th star comes from, truly worth the... More

We were greeted with very friendly service and this wonderful restaurant. They had no problem with us wanting to have our drinks outside first. Our champagne was beautifully garnished with rose petals and we enjoyed a fabulous London sunset with Tower Bridge serenely lit (it even opened for a fab photo op). We had an early dinner in the more... More

We visited the restaurant after a recommendation, we started with a drink on the outdoor heated terrace with lovely views of Tower Bridge. We were told to take our time and the table was ready whenever we needed it. We chose from the 'menu of the day' which was exceptional value, and very tasty! The service we received throughout the...

Beautiful fine dining with views of Tower Bridge. Always a nice meal, but with associated price. I would be more inclined to rate the food 4 stars, however the friendliness of the staff and enjoyable frequent wine tastings with Peter in the wine shop, makes up for it. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed dinner here last night to celebrate my husbands 70th birthday. The food was excellent, delicious and well presented, the view from the table towards Tower Bridge was somewhat spoilt by the scaffolding, but the ambiance was perfect. The staff were extremely attentive in a quiet and unobtrusive way and very friendly. Truly a memorable evening and hopefully we will... More

Enjoyed a great Sunday with the girls at this restaurant enjoying the Sunday brunch menu just before Christmas. We have done a few of these around London but this is one of the best. You don't often find steak on a set menu without an extra charge but here you can enjoy a lovely steak along with choice of sauces.... More
