totally false and pretentious
The only redeeming thing about the place is the house special Bloody Mary. The rest is simply a pathetic British take on food. The Russian food is simply laughable. And by the way you are not supposed to freeze good fod JJ a to absolute zero, only the bad vodka that they serve in the place, so at least one thing they got right. For Gods sake avoid the expensive caviar.
Went here with my Dad, his girlfriend and my boyfriend and we had a wonderful time. Everything was delicious, the service was great, the interior was interesting and felt like it had been there for absolutely ages.
My father went 'mmm' with every single bite to the point where it was kind of hilarious, especially the horse-radish mash which he had one bite of, went "mm!" and rapidly spooned it out for us all to try
The menu is pretty strange, ox tongue with aspic, veal holstein, and on the slightly creamy side, but huge amounts of choice and the option to have cold vokda with your meal is nice touch!
I had the beetroot and goatscheese salad to start, and when it came out it looked like it was made from glass, gorgeous - we all took pictures.
If you go, at least one person on your table must order the Chocolate Glory - a gold easter-egg type creation, filled with brownies and jelly and other goodies, which is delivered to your table and an immaculately suited (in bright pink or blue, none the less) waiter will pour over steaming chocolate sauce until it caves in.
Brilliant meal, would recommend to all, although on the pricey side so better for one of those special occasions (when someone else is paying, haha)
I like it, a lot!
Since going here, I've recommended this brasserie to many friends (especially girls) who I know will love the button which you press for champagne - a fantastic idea and I will be going back for more.
The food was also great, I love the fact that the menu seems so random and it doesn't matter whether you order desert followed by starter - you can do what you like and late at night it's the ideal place to relax and unwind.
