I recently dined here for a corporate dinner, and overall, it was a pleasant experience. We were seated in the private dining room a few floors up, which was equipped with a projector screen and necessary IT equipment for a presentation. Prior to dinner, we were offered a selection of white/red wine which were both quite nice. The appetizers were... More

Wonderful meal every time I eat here. I especially look forward to the maki rolls. The staff are top notch and really go the extra mile. I highly recommend it. The only thing I don't care for is the brownie. It's a little dry not moist and chewy like you'd expect.

Went for dinner in March on a cold night. Got a nice table by the fireplace! Caesar salad was great and we got a nice Rhone wine. I had the elk chop which was fantastic and my wife ordered the beef tenderloin which was prepared perfectly. Waitstaff was friendly and very professional. Would definitely visit again.

Service was inattentive; staff need training in wine service. Upending the bottle to half-fill the last glass of the table, second bottle opened and poured into glasses without tasting. Just because the wine is the same doesn't mean that the bottles should be mixed (in fact, second bottle tasted completely different from first - that's not unusual, the wine was... More

I had a business dinner booked for 6 pm on a Thursday evening. We were seated upon arrival and the drink orders and subsequent dinner orders occurred in a reasonable timeframe. The appetizers arrived - salads and wontons which were very nicely plated and were very tasty but after that dinner went off the rails. We waited a full hour... More

I had dined here previously so I was excited to see this restaurant on the londonlicious list when I was planning my father-in-laws birthday dinner. The resteraunt is beautifully decorated and we were seated at a table beside a gorgeous fireplace. The server was fantastic and very efficient. My father-in-law loved his bucket of muscles. I had the calamari which... More

I've been to The Black Trumpet once before and remembered it being fantastic. Perhaps it was an off night, but my husband and I had a horrible experience. I had the Londonlicious menu. I had the squash soup, mushroom pasta and the creme brulee. The creme brulee was fantastic, but the soup was awful and the mushroom pasta was average.... More

Went to The Black Trumpet for my birthday dinner and had a great time. Our food was amazing, our drinks were good, and our waitress was very knowledgeable. We'll definitely be coming back!

Had lunch at the Black Trumpet during Londonlicious. I had the mussels which were very good but my main course was so delish! I enjoyed the chicken on a bun with Brie cheese and cranberry chutney and FRESH CUT fries! Yum

Have had several opportunities to dine here. Great outdoor patio, best kept patio secret in London! Food is always great and filling. Good for couples, families and larger groups.
