I finally made it here and wish that I had come sooner. This was one of the best meals I have had for a while in London. The cod and the second dessert were just average but everything else was great.

This was my second visit to Kitchen Table, which like the first, was just before Xmas, I really was hoping that this meal would be better than the one 2 years ago. Not that the meal I had then was not good, I really enjoyed it, but just thought that at times it was approaching greatness but never quite getting there.
Unfortunately I left with the same feeling this time; some of the dishes definitely deserved its, newly rewarded, Michelin star but some fell flat for me. If I had one general criticism it would be that a number of dishes were overly sweet.
Do not get me wrong I think everyone that is into food and lives in London should probably experience this place once, it is a very good overall package but the actual food is definitely surpassed elsewhere in the city.

The fish dishes here were superb, people were slightly disappointed by a couple of the meat mains but again the desserts were top class.
Somerset House is a lovely place to locate a restaurant and this is a lovely room to dine in, unfortunately the food was very average and expensive .
I was pretty disappointed with my dishes, the scallops were just okay and my guinea fowl was overcooked and came with too much of the beetroot and tomato sauce.
This place is quite good as it serves a lot of sushi but with some cooked and more complex dishes as well; so you get to try a lot of stuff.
The sushi is very good but not up there with the best. However, if you want to go to only one high end Japanese place and get a decent range of dishes then this would be a good shout. However, if you can go you to both, for example, and Sawada and RyuGin
These are just some of the dishes we got served:
The view from the New York Grill or Bar is just to die for, it is just worth going for a drink to experience it. The menu is basically an expanded steak house one. The Japanese beef here was very good but nothing on Dons. This place is very expensive.
