During our ten day stay at the Lancaster London we ate at the Island Grill and Bar four times. Each time the food and service were impeccable. At our last dinner there on April 25th, our server was Francisco. In addition to doing everything right he also recommended one of the best Pinot Noirs we have ever had. Bravo. Ray... More

I try to visit Island Grill when in London on business because it's so consistent and good. I am especially excited when I see that Francisco is working because he is an incredible server. It's been probably 6 months since my last visit and true to form, Francisco remembered my favorite cocktail, that I prefer to have anchovies on the... More

This is a very good restaurant. The staff are pleasant and helpful, the food and drinks are well prepared and tasteful, and all at a reasonable cost. There is a varied menu, and everything is good quality.

Service here is excellent. Our waitress was knowledgeable and highly attentive but never intrusive. Food v good if a bit bland. Fish well cooked, Steak good, fois gras terrine rich and dense, risotto bland but nicely cooked chocolate trio excellent. Bread basket interesting. Prosecco overpriced. Overall recommended.

Warm welcome, cozy atmosphere, a great menu choice and couldn't fault the food or service. Head Chef, Adam also came out to our table and was clearly exceptional at what he does. Glad we booked as it filled up pretty quickly. Perfect way to end our evening in London, would highly recommend.

We rocked up an hour late on Sunday night and they couldn't have been anymore accommodating. Our show had run over and then getting a taxi was near to impossible so we ended up arriving as they were clearing up after a busy service.

A relaxed buzz completes the atmosphere of friendly sophistication.
