We decided to have the 7 course set menu and we could not have made a better decision. Each dish was exquisitely put together and the flavour sensation on our palettes were nothing short of divine. There were so many dishes and each of them had their own unique flair and intricacy but the entire menu complimented each other beautifully. I cannot end this review without highlighting the impeccable service of all the staff. The meals were perfectly spaced out and the staff were very attentive and engaging from the time we walked in, throughout the evening till the very end when we left. The revamp of the venue looks amazing and the atmosphere and ambience of the restaurant is classy, elegant and perfect for a romantic evening. This has definitely been a memorable experience for us and we will definitely be returning. Bravo!

Glass of champagne was an embarrassment for the restaurant. Less than a third of a glass. This is not wine. Girl needs to be told and other staff understand how champagne should be poured.

It was our first visit and we were stunned by the innovation, service and magnificent food and wine. At St Crispin you can watch the head chef at work, an experience that I love. Seeing the perfectionism of preparations and superb knife skills is educational and adds to the dining experience. The sommelier has extraordinary knowledge of wine, it’s history and place in the world as well detailed knowledge of the taste and the suitability of the wine to particularly foods. We were happy with the food but thought the cost of the wine was a bit high. That said, we will certainly go again.

Food very tasty and well presented, but not enough at the price. Tables too close. Drinks reasonable. Service adequate. Parking in area difficult. Booking conditions and confirmation nags insulting. No reason to re-visit.

Amazing food, service and wine list. One of my favourites

Poor wine service and matching. Main course was a little burnt i.e. Over cooked wagyu rump. Finally the bill was placed down in front of everyone to see and not given to me to pay discretely.

We will not go back to this restaurant, food very ordinary and so expensive we had 5 course menu. I had lunch at a coffee shop yesterday and enjoyed that much more than last nights dinner.

The non welcoming 'book before 8pm and you only have your table for 2hrs' on a Tuesday evening in Winter when the restaurant was not even half full seemed ridiculous and unnecessary. Impacted on the atmosphere and may impact on the likelihood of people to book. The desserts were AMAZING!
