We decided to have a Father's day meal here following a good meal a year or so ago. Needless to say the quality of the food served has gone downhill rendering the prices ambitious. The steak tartare portion was surprisingly small, scallops average at best....More

I've been there a couple of times and each time it's fantastic. Great venue, awesome food, perfect for special occasions or just for people wanting to go to a more upmarket restaurant.

This place is in the heart of Crystal Palace and looks the part. Unfortunately eating experience was a major let down. There's a great cocktail menu and the gin cocktail is the best. Shame it took 30 minutes for the cocktail to arrive at our...More

Unfortunately he still owes me £15,000. He broke the contract telling me The Exhibition Rooms was failing. Anyone living in SE22 know if this is just his usual behaviour
Has anyone visited here recently? Ie Sept 2015. Keen to book but not if the service hasn't improved from the last couple of reviews
