Our visit to Gordon Ramsey's at The London was a highlight of dining experiences. The food was outstanding, but the staff & service was equal in quality ... I felt that as a customer I was appreciated, which is becoming more rare in fine dining restaurants. I'm not a "foody" ... From the tasting menu I tried things I have not tried before ... & whatever it was it was outstanding.

Everyone should eat here at least once in their life. It is definitely worth the hefty price tag. We had the three course menu because we wanted the greater choice of entree. It was delicious. The butter poached lobster is a must and the meyer lemon served with it brought just the right amount of acid. My boyfriend opted for the diver scallops which had a nice sear on them. They were just this side of under done but still delicious. I couldn't help think of Gordon screaming on Hell"s kitchen, "Their Raw!" But these were fine. If they have the Kobe on the special you absolutely must get the Kobe. After tasting my boyfriend's I decided that everyone should only ever eat Kobe beef. It was absolutely the best thing I have every eaten and much better then the Kobe at Robuchon. It was truly divine. I had the Venison and although I thought it was fantastic before I tried the Kobe it simply didn't compare. Deserts are fantastic I had the pistachio souffle and the cheese course. If I won the lottery I would definitely go back.

After dining at two other "high-dollar" restaurants in town, we had our doubts that GR would be able to woo us - - but we were wrong. Our dining experience at GR was outstanding. All the wait staff were extra caring and helpful and we totally enjoyed all of our food. We will definitely return and look forward to some more of those delicious Truffles !!

Just returned from a wonderful dinner at Gordon Ramsay. Food was delicious. We had the "Menu Prestige" -- 5 great dishes that were generous portions. Wonderful seared foie gras, trout, scallops and lamb. We chose the cheese course instead of the chocolate course. They brought us both. Yummy bon-bon trolley. Everything was great especially the cotton candy and the honey comb. Also the caramels. They gave us more of the wrapped candy "to go". Service was very attentive. The sommelier is our dear friend formerly from the old Aureole. He did a brilliant job of picking a perfect German Riesling for us. The room was about 3/4 full, and tables were being refilled. I do hope the restaurant stays; it might become my Aureole replacement.

My daughter, a friend, and I went to Maze At The London for my birthday. I'm such a big fan of Gordon Ramsey that there's was no way I was flying from Atlanta to NYC in the middle of winter and not eat at one of his restaurants. We were seated immediately in a tastefully decorated room. Dress was casual so we were very comfortable. Any woman would agree that the lighting was perfect. Although my palate is not as sophisticated as my television viewing would like it to be, I was committed to trying a bit of everything. We ordered from the Ala Carte menu starting with Ramsey's amazing foie gras, a first for me. It was great. I never liked scallops because I found them to be too chewy for my taste but GR's were sublime. I had the Berkshire Pork Chop and the others had the Short Ribs. The ribs were so tender that they literally melted in your mouth. My only complaint - which probably came from watching too much TV - was that my chop a bit overcooked, although if I'd done it at home, it would have been so well-done! (I ordered a Berkshire Pork Chop the following night at Tom Colicchio's CraftSteak and it was perfectly cooked and more flavorful.) The Maitre'D, Ben, was very knowledgeable and personable. My friend is a well-known actor/comedian and he had both tables on either side of us rolling with laughter all night. Ben joined in while maintaining his dignity. I've eaten in more expensive restaurants around the world but Maze At The London was right on point with any one of them, while delivering bang for our buck. We paid approximately $75 per person including drinks and dessert but the meal could have easily cost 25% more with no complaints from me. Would I go again?! Yes!

We went here for my sisters 30th birthday it was a surprise for her and just seeing her face knowing she was eating at GR was worth it. We loved it so much we surprised our parents with this as gift for their 40th wedding aniversary. This dining room is not dingy it is seductively lit. It felt like we had a personal dining experience as there was such a quiet hush in the place. If you want noise and lively go to the bar or go somewhere else. We found service to be impecible, our waiters and maitredee very knowledgeable. They were not in our face and after explaining what were were eating and drinking disappeared with a hush. Do not go here if you do not want an experince and just want to eat. We found this to be unlike any other restuarant in NY and the unique was the quiet, seductiveness of the small, almost intimate dining room. Food out of this world and paring really worked fabulously you really could tell. They were also felxible and you could could pick any item from the menu to replace anything you did not like witht he 7 course tasting, a unique. That said some of us made some changes and actually preferred what was on the menu when we tasted our partners, it was all fabulous though and would recommend it be treat is as a very special occasion.

We were seated timely for our 6:30 reservation last night. Four hours later when the meal was finally finished that was the only thing that was timely. I've never experienced such service. Our table ordered the 7 course tasting menu. After every course, long after everyone at the table finished their food, our empty plates would linger in front of us for at least 10 minutes. Then we would wait in the depressing dark dining room for at least another 10 minutes for the next course to arrive. They routinely forgot to give some members of our party their sauces, breads, etc that accompanied the courses. Someone ordered a drink and she was told by our head waiter that he doesn't take drink orders. Instead of just giving the message to whoever deals with drinks he told her to wait for the person that took drink orders. When that person finally arrived the drink didn't come until 30 mins. later when she had to bring it up again to the head waiter. Four people at the table ordered the cheese plate for dessert. The person serving the cheese took 30 mins to cut and distribute the cheese to the 4 people. By now it was already approaching 10PM, 3.5 hours after being seated. I haven't even remarked about the food which was good, but who cares! To have to be subjected to this service no food is worth it. I feel like they should have paid me-instead of the $215 tab per man we had to pay to be tortured last night. We were sucker punched in the worst way.
