I cannot fault the service or food.
It was our first time there and i took my wife as a treat. The staff are very accomodating, knowledgeable and pleaseant. once you are seated the only thing you pick up is your cutlery when they see your glass almost empty it is full again before you know it.
I cannot wait for this to re-open after the refit.
Thanks Marcus

Food RatingHated the food! Service RatingThe service was okay Ambience RatingDidn't like the ambience

I went with a group of friends and we were all very disappointed.

Firstly the restaurant is so dark. Small lights are scattered along the walls but even so you can hardly see. Due to this we couldn’t actually make out the color of our food and I managed to knock a glass of wine over.

The staff are all polite and very attentive. I found it slightly over staffed. Many of the staff had nothing to do and stood on the side lines watching you eat, which was slightly off putting. It worked out at about £90 per head after we had wine with our meal etc. None of us were very impressed with the food. We all agreed the food was all pretty tasteless. We expected to be blown away by the flavors but found most of the starters and mains to be really bland and as it was so dark we couldn’t really distinguish what some of the food was. The meat was cooked to perfection but the meat was so preened and prepped it seemed as though you were eating a specimen from a lab. The portions were absolutely minsiscule and all of us felt as though we hadn’t even eaten by the end. The brown bread rolls that we were offered between courses were awful. They were so tough to cut into, so much so that the table shook and once inside they were still doughy. Marcus Wareing was there and wandering around the restaurant. His food at the restaurant doesn’t seem to emulate the lovely food that he has been cooking on the Great British Menu. Quite a shame as my friends and I were really looking forward to the meal. We all felt a bit foulish paying the bill. I wouldn’t return or recommend anyone to go in a hurry.

The food was good, but not as good as I would have expected from the price tag and the michelin star. The sauces for both my fish and meat course were overseasoned and the Perigord truffle sauce was also lacking flavour. The service personnel were efficent and unobtrusive and generally met my expectations for this price bracket.

In summary I would say it was fine as far as restaurants go, but not really a foodie's restaurant; I've eaten at restaurants with much better food for much less. It's more about a restaurant of form, rather than substance.

Having stayed at The Savoy numerous times and waited for my car in front of this restaurant but never having eaten there I promised myself I would have to try it. I was glad I did. Our meals were great, as was the service and atmosphere. I will certainly eat there on future trips to London. Oh, by the way, the Martini was invented in Martinez, California by a bartender for a gold miner on his way up to the Gold Rush in the 1850's....read the book- The Martini by Barnaby Conrad III for the details of this story and other great martini stories.

The River Restaurant provides a marvelous riverside setting for a special occasion.

I have often treated family to Afternoon Tea in The Foyer.

Did you know the American Bar was where the Martini was invented? Neither did I!
