"The full-on Frenchness of all this is a welcome reminder of how good French cooking can be. This is, though, one of those places where à la carte isn't the best way to go; you can tell the rhythm of the restaurant is more geared to the set menu." READ REVIEW

"Morgan M has the hallmarks of a potentially great restaurant. The chef is a rare talent, the menu is mostly well-crafted and affordable to City types, and the location should guarantee regular, well-heeled visitors." READ REVIEW

"It’s not that, with the exception of the main course we (unfortunately) both chose, there was very much wrong with our meal, just that there was at no point any tune you might – to use a West End analogy – want to go out of the theatre humming." READ REVIEW
