Seven Park Place by William Drabble
Perfect combinationFriendly welcome, great decor, well chosen & interesting but not overwhelming menu, wonderful wine pairings, what more can you ask for? Of course, it's pricey, but not crazily expensive for what you get. Great choice for a memorable occasion.11/05/2013 00:00:003rd timeThis was my 3rd time dining here and each time was superb. This time was was evening meal with friends whom I took out to celebrate his birthday. The food was very good though as usual in fine dining the portions are small. The service was excellent with informed friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend to anyway, small place but it feels like dining at home with friends..11/05/2013 00:00:00This is my new favourite restaurantThis is my new favourite restaurant; not cheap but food, service, astmosphere, everything was superb.08/05/2013 00:00:00Exquisite food!We went on Sat night for my husband's birthday and had the gourmant tasting menu with wine matching. The food was out of this world! Each course was delicious - amazing flavours and left you wanting more! We would have like an extra scallop as you only get one in the tasting menu and they were so delicious! I mentioned when booking it was my husband's birthday but they either didn't remember or didn't have a record of it which was my only tiny gripe. Otherwise incredible!!04/05/2013 00:00:0010th anniversary mealGreat food, great service and great ambience. It was the ideal setting for out 10th anniversary and I would like to say that we were taken care of very well. We opted to the 3 course menu and each course was absolutely perfect in both presentation, quality and taste. The restaurant also laid on some hand made chocolates and champagne which was an extremely nice touch at the end of our meal. My wife and I would definitely recommend this establishment to anyone considering this for a special occasion.04/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely mealHad a lovely meal with my wife on our 10th anniversary. The restaurant itself was very intimate (OK - others could say "small"). The quality of the food (the menu gourmand) was great and the service was both efficient and friendly.
Compared to other similar tasting menus, I thought this was good value. My wife and I also appreciated the fact that we left feeling contentedly replete and "merry" rather than full to the gills and blotto from the wine pairings!
I'd certainly recommend this to friends in the future.03/05/2013 00:00:00Wonderful way to celebrate... our daughter's birthday. Very well looked after, good food, good wine and quiet. Lots of time to talk and laugh. Thank you.03/05/2013 00:00:00Just an amazing place withJust an amazing place with implacable food! Our Sunday lunch was faultless. Look forward to come back soon.27/04/2013 00:00:00LOVELYExcellent all round. Very good service, attentive yet not intrusive. Food superb.27/04/2013 00:00:00Cosy, lovely food, great day out.The staff members were courteous. Every single course was beautifully presented - we were captivated by the next table's souffle because it looked so tantalising even before we were halfway through our mains. If there's a souffle option on the menu for dessert, it's a must try. Portions were generous, the smaller eaters amongst us were half-full by the end of the smooth lobster gemini starter. Even the bread here is amazing. Decor matches the high quality of the food as well. Very cosy setting, with tables set for small group sizes. Beautifully comfy seats. All in all, pretty much as close to perfect as you can get. This was my second time here and I'll be heading back again for sure.26/04/2013 00:00:00Good but not magicalSpent a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon eating our way through the set 7 course menu. All lovely but no real surprises or anything magical. The service was excellent but lacked personality-maybe that was what was missing - Personality. It was all rather serious. Good nonetheless, but not "special". The food was good, each small plate utterly delicious but again unremarkable. The paired wines were excellent and good value with different ones served to the vegetarian and the meat eater. As i say - we had a great time but the staff were a little stiff and starchy and need to be a bit more open and friendlier with guests. A top up of my favourite wine would have been nice, an extra chocolate (without having to ask) and some more bread.26/04/2013 00:00:00Back for the second time!And just as amazing as the first!
The food is excellent and the service is impeccable.
This restaurant is my London-favourite, and I recommend it to those who want that little 'something extra'!25/04/2013 00:00:00Outstanding, took my girlfriendOutstanding, took my girlfriend to try and impress and hit the nail on the head.13/04/2013 00:00:00Fabulous food !Absolutely fabulous food, deco, service and value. Will definitely go back and one of my favourites ! Highly recommended.05/04/2013 00:00:00For a Special Evening outFor our 16th Anniversary we took in the the view from the Shard then for the most perfect meal headed here.
We went for the MENU GOURMAND paired with wines as selected Marco Feraldi. A 4 hour relaxing and wonderful experience.30/03/2013 00:00:00A precious breathe of peaceA precious breathe of peace and restfulness from the heart of London rush.29/03/2013 00:00:00Great...Great food, great service and great experience overall. Recommended!29/03/2013 00:00:00Delightful dinnerVery elegant setting, with sophisticated food and service. All of my party could have happily ordered any of the dishes on offer. The venue was every bit as good as we remembered from previous visits.28/03/2013 00:00:00Degustion MenuWent for the six course degustion menu for £72.
Service was outstanding.
The bar had a good selection of cocktails, with monthly specials.
Complimentary truffle chocolate box at the end of meal.28/03/2013 00:00:00Seven Park Place always delivers!We have been to Seven Park Place a few times and we always go for a special occasion. This time it was our London anniversary and we enjoyed every minute of it! The food is of high quality, everything is brilliant and well balanced. I started with scallops which cooked perfectly, followed by a lamb dish which again delivered and provided this excellent foodie experience. Before dessert, we were so pleasantly surprised by the little dessert/palate cleanser - it had such clean flavours and so clean, I actually wanted more of that! I really enjoy dessert and again, the caramelized banana was so good, I really wanted to eat all of it quickly! It was so delicious and well executed that every mouthful was an experience. What an experience!22/03/2013 00:00:00RETURN TO SEVEN PARK PLACEAnother excellent meal with first class service. My guest was previously Chairman of a City firm and is well used to fine dining. He was very impressed by the choice of venue, service, food and wine. I have a slight issue with the positioning of the table which was adjacent to the bar area and as a result my guest was slightly discomforted by guests and staff pushing by his chair. The lesson I suppose is to request a table away from the bar when booking.20/03/2013 00:00:00Birthday LunchMy mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Seven Park Place. The scallop mousse was exceptional - a rich amalgam of wonderful tastes and presentation.19/03/2013 00:00:00Good time had by allWe had a lovely time. Tasting menu was out of this world. Really exciting & delicious. Foie Gras was incredible, as was the scallops and the lamb too - well thought out, well balanced. Staff attentive & knowledgeable. Would really recommend this restaurant.14/03/2013 00:00:00A hidden gemThe outside of the hotel didn't look anything special but inside it was wonderfully decorated with a lovely golden and black dining room with comfy booths. The service was outstanding they couldn't do enough for you. Although the offer menu was limited to 2 choices for each course all the food was wonderful with additional amuse bouche and petit fours. The scallop mousse was amazing as was the raspberry fondant!
The glass of wine that was included in the offer was also delicious. All round a great experience and the offer made it very reasonable. Would definitely go back again.12/03/2013 00:00:00We love this little gem ofWe love this little gem of a restaurant. The service is always genuinely charming. The food this time was a little dissapointing as the set menu for Mother's day included a beef dish. 2 of my guests prefer not eat beef and so this took the egde off the meal for them. My mother however, was charmed by the staff and told them that she had thoroughly enjoyed herself.10/03/2013 00:00:00Just fabulousWe had a Sat night dinner at Seven Park Place. It's a cozy place with only a few tables. The ambiance was quite nice and the food was outstanding. The service was over the top. They offered us a table in the cozy lounge when we had completed our meals but still had wine. While we were there, they brought us several little treats. It was a very nice touch.09/03/2013 00:00:00FantasticFoie gras as starter was delightful.
Service is far above average
Quiet place05/03/2013 00:00:00A hidden gem!I took my fiance for his 30th birthday meal. We had the tasting menu, which was heavenly! Gorgeous dining room, friendly staff and delicious food! 10/10! :)02/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent LunchThe toptable deal of a 3 course lunch plus a glass of wine for £29.50 was excellent value particularly as the food was outstanding and the service so attentive. As well as the 3 courses there were also little extras which made the meal even more special. Ideal setting for a special occasion at a very reasonable price. Will definately be going again.01/03/2013 00:00:00had the toptable special offerhad the toptable special offer of 3 courses and wine for 29.50. Food was amazing. Had lots of little extra likes amuse bouche and choice of sweeets at end and special breads. the service was fanastic too. Loved the decor - had such a nice day out.28/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent Set LunchA friend and I went for the set lunch (3 courses plus a glass of wine) at Seven Park Place a few days ago. It was really excellent - delicious food including an amuse bouche, and very good service. We will definitely try and do this again as it was extremely high quality food at a very reasonable price.27/02/2013 00:00:00Really good.Really nice restaurant. The staff were about as god as you get - made us feel really welcome and their service was great. The food was excellent as well. The only slight drawback is we were a bit too close to the table on either side - they really packed us in. All in, a great restaurant and i'd definitely go back.23/02/2013 00:00:00Great Service and FoodA excellemnt night all round. Would hugley recomment, even though quite pricy @ around £45023/02/2013 00:00:00We spent a very enjoyableWe spent a very enjoyable 3 hours on Saturday afternoon tasting divine food and drinking wonderful cocktails and wine. The service was friendly,efficient and unobtrusive . The 3 courses plus a glass of wine for 29 pounds was exceptional value. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.23/02/2013 00:00:00I definitely recommend Seven ParkExcellent food with service. I think this place is one of the French restaurant in London. However, the place of the restaurant quite small so if you are booking at least five people then request them for bigger space.22/02/2013 00:00:00Investiture LunchSeven Park Place will provide a superb dining experience in the most opulent, but friendly of settings. The set lunch is a great and affordable way to sample a Michelin restaurant, and I would thoroughly recommend it for any special occasion.20/02/2013 00:00:00WOW!From the moment we arrived here we were made to feel special. We dined from the three course lunch menu with wine. Once shown to our seats in the plush dining room we were given a 'special treat from the chef', a tiger prawn hors d'ouvere before our starters. From start to finish the meal was delicious ( including the wine). We were then treated to two more treats before the end of our dining experience- deliciously sweet petit fours and homemade raspberry marshmallows. A fantastic dinig experience made even more special by the attentive waiting staff and the phenomenal food. When I come to London next I will definately be revisiting this place!16/02/2013 00:00:00Great food, excellent service.We dined here on Valentine's Day. We were seated in the bar area but at a very nice table. The staff were very welcoming. The set menu was excellent - quail salad, scallops, fillet of beef and passion fruit souffle. The accompanying wines were unusual but well chosen. We were tempted to try a malt whisky with our coffee and petits fours. All in all a very very nice evening and I would definitely recommend this place for a special evening or for a romantic dinner. The a la carte menu is good value.14/02/2013 00:00:00Thought food was good valueThought food was good value although limited choice but wine expensive14/02/2013 00:00:00Valentine LunchWe enjoyed a really high quality meal of scallop soufflé with wild mushroom sauce followed by beautifully cooked roasted cod with a hot soufflé as dessert at seven park Place.
we will return.13/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent food, excellent valueWent here for a Friday lunch to celebrate a birthday. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Very good service.

Both of the main courses in particular, namely the venison and lamb were first class. The service was very attentive without being over fussy. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will have no hesitation in eating there again!25/01/2013 16:00:00Friends and foodWe booked Seven Park Place for a catch up with friends and it was an amazing surprise!

Food really delicious, with good proportions.22/01/2013 16:00:00FantasticExcellent food and relaxed setting. Although a hotel restaurant, it managed to let you forget that.05/01/2013 00:00:00Just greatAnother great meal at Seven Park Place. 6 course menu on this occasion, all top class but as always fantastic lamb. Also particularly impressed that, as non-porky product eaters, we were advised which desserts contained gelatine. That's a rare occurrence (and rather different to being served crackling at a nearby 2 star!).04/01/2013 16:00:00We took family here as a specialWe took family here as a special Christmas treat and it did not disappoint. The food and service was very good and the wine delicious. The ambience was a little strange as the dining area in very small but we were able to make it our own. I would recommend to anyone looking for a little bit of luxury at a decent price.04/01/2013 16:00:00Second visit to Seven Park PlaceSecond visits to restaurants are often made with some trepidation as to whether they will live up to one's impressions on first visit and in this case it certainly did so. I went with an old friend who has visited most restaurants in the vicinity of St James's and he was extremely impressed not only with the excellent food/good service but the Pinot Blanc from Alsace. Once again we received a friendly welcome at the the St James's Hotel entrance folowing which we were shown to our table in the restaurant where again we were pleasantly received by smiling staff including the excellent sommelier. Good food, good wine and pleasant surroundings at reasonable prices. Can't ask for more.03/01/2013 00:00:00The food was outstanding andThe food was outstanding and the level of service impeccable. A real culinary treat!02/01/2013 16:00:00
