Gordon Ramsay at the London
Posted by Michelle Lynn on 01/31/2014
I really enjoyed my experience here. My sister took me for my 25th birthday. My dream was always to meet chef Ramsay. I admire him and his abilities in the kitchen. He works with great finesse and although he's hot headed, he's also very charming and sweet. Anyway, we got the 5 course meal. Everything was perfectly cooked and definately quite tastey. We didn't get to meet Ramsay himself but they did let us have a tour of the kitchen. I think my favorite dish was the beat salad and the mushroom and shrimp ravioli. The portions were small but with all the other courses it was quite enough to satisfy. This was almost 6 years ago. I've been dying ask my husband to take me again for one of our anniversarys. I would definitely recommend coming here at least once. It's worth the experience, the fine dining, the atmosphere is beautiful, and the money. If i had one thing to criticize...it would be that the server will get offended if you don't finish a course. I just thought it was improper to eat every last bite on my plate. But other than that i thought it was excellent.

Went to London for a late dinner. The Black Cod was purchased as an entree, and when served I thought there was some mistake, that I had received the appetizer portion. But no! In fact it was the smallest piece of cod every served for a price north of $30. Service was horrible, we had to hunt down the waiter.

My wife and I went here for her birthday. We did the tasting menu. Five years later we are still talking about our experience.

I ate here in October, and can't believe that some of these reviews could be for the same restaurant. From start to finish both the food and the service were top quality. The amuse bouche of butternut squash soup with crisps was so simple, yet with beautiful taste - the crisps were perfectly seasoned. I had the scallops to start, and they just melted under the weight of the knife - barely any pressure was needed, perfectly cooked. I had the monkfish as my main, which may have been a tad overcooked, but just barely. It was still delicious. For dessert I chose the mango parfait, which had the perfect balances of taste and texture. In between these dishes we were served mackerel and a dish of sweetcorn ice cream, both of which were tasty. Upon completion of our dessert we were served chocolates and sweets from a tiered trolley - we had one to pick from each tier and then instructed we could pick as many as we liked - the perfect finale to the meal. The wait staff throughout were attentive, filling drinks as soon as they began to resemble getting close to empty, sweeping crumbs so swiftly and quietly that we didn't even notice them, and able to answer any queries flawlessly. For a special night out, it was the perfect place for us, and the cost ($135 each + drinks) was more than worth the night we had. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Visited during Restaurant Week with great anticipation since fan of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares series, even watching re-runs. Service mediocre - mistakes in drink orders. Food portions tiny, tiny. Would not return nor recommend.

We were seated to lunch and only received drink menus. When we asked if we were in the right place to eat a meal. The waiter said yes, then 5 minutes later came back with a limited bar/appetizer menu. After asking for the full menu, we waited another 5 minutes with no sign of service. At this point, our timeline was being compressed and resigned ourselves to the bar menu. Unfortunately had to order burgers and tuna tartare. They were pretty good. The slow, inaccurate service continued through the entire meal. One of party had to leave before his entree even arrived. I can't say enough disappointing things about this place. Never again... I had better service at the Cheescake Factory.

Dining at The London is a real taste sensation. We have been dining there with three sisters and we all love food and love to make dinner for friends but also like to go out and eat in star restaurants, so we have got a little of reference (in Holland). It was great! I just have one remark to make. I think it is quite rude to take a glass of wine (even when it is empty) before I had finished the course. I thought it was strange. But we were there to have dinner and that was great. The new thing on the menu was this monkfish with chicken compose. Strange, maybe not a keeper, but good to have tasted.
