Lasagne was great and the skinny fries with Parmesan were amazing. Only thing that let it down for us was we sat in the bar area before hand and there’s a very close outdoor balcony area for people to smoke and it stunk, this did put me off as when ever anyone came in or out of there this huge stench came in and the door would sometimes be left open a bit.

Great for pre-theatre, where 20% discount is given for theatre goers.

We shared the Rocket-Pear salad. It was tasty but the pear was not ripe..very very hard. We each had pizza. Mine was okay, not great, hardly had any sauce. My husband’s had no sauce and very little topping. When I wanted to take home my leftover pizza, I was told that the restaurant did not have a license to let me “take away” what I had ordered for table service. We were disappointed with our meals and would not recommend this restaurant.

Visited the restaurant on recommendation of a family member after their recent visit. Service was great, it was prompt and friendly. Perfect for the time we had as we were seeing a show near by. The food itself was a little lack luster. It wasn't horrible but not amazing either. We ordered a pizza among other things and this was dry and lacked flavor. The way we described the meal at the time was unsatisfying. In terms of service I would recommend but as we did not enjoy the meal I wont recommend this to friends.

The perfect pre-theatre restaurant for both Her Majesty's and the Comedy Club. Great food and good service time after time.

Very uninteresting meal presentation. Added colour from a vegetable would not have gone astray. Initial cocktails took far too long to arrive and only after waiter reminded of the order..
