I am truly amazed that this restaurant is related to PG's place in Paris. The food was fine, but unexciting except the cheese course. The service was the worst of any Michelin starred restaurant I have been to. We were there on New Years Eve and nothing was as it should have been. We were served the hot canapes without being given a chance to order champagne or wine, which took 30 minutes and while we waited to eat them, they were not replaced.

Our wine was clearly premoxed, but they tried to sell it as fine before replacing it. Everyone in the room was having to get up to serve themselves wine and no one in the room was poured champagne before midnight. We had to ask for our dirty plates to be cleared after every course. The live entertainment was great, but played only 15 minutes in between 1 hour breaks. Repeated complaints to management brought no results. This was a thousand pound meal and for the first time in my life, I asked to have the service charge removed.

    That sounded nasty. You were right in asking for the service charge to be removed.
