Best Service in London?

Prawn Cocktail Oct 19, 2006 02:50 PM

Which London restaurant do you think has the best service? And by service, I mean from staff at all levels, from telephone receptionists, greeters, waiters, managemers, busboys, etc. I'm looking for places that aren't just merely competent, but outstanding. And in London, that means people can actually speak and understand English.

I'll start. Any of the Caprice/ Ivy/ J Sheekey/ Daphne's places have always been very professional, in my opinion.

    I agree that the service at J. Sheekey is very good. It is professional in the very best sense of the word!

      The service at Le Gavroche is in a different league to anywhere else. If you're a bloke just don't try taking your jacket off.

        I've never been to Le Gavroche . . . well, I mean, I've BEEN there, just never eaten there. Good classic French food?

        Yes,but the service is better than the food, which tends to towards the conservative
