The Greenhouse London Reviews


The ultimate food & wine experience - I’ve been deciding whether or not to write a review on The Greenhouse b/c it’s been a while since I’ve been although I have been twice which is a lot for this high, high, high end Michelin-star restaurant. Thank goodness for expense budgets and clients who enjoy a food experience as much as I do.

You enter an oasis of clean lines, green grass and teak wood off a tiny mews in Mayfair. Very contemporary entry. The experience just continues, with polite greeters taking your jacket and either offering you a drink in the sitting area/bar or taking you to your table.

The wine list is one of the most impressive I’ve seen in London and in fact, they’ve won the Wine Spectator Grand Award the past 3 years, which goes without saying. That’s the highest mark for a restaurant. The Sommeliers do their part extremely well, as you would expect with that kind of wine selection. They know exactly what to serve you depending on your taste, price range and meal.

The French inspired meal itself takes your palate to new places. It was the first time I tried sweetbreads and I actually liked them! All the dishes are masterminded to perfection and linger on your palate with enthusiasm. So they use some foam, which is over-rated, but it works. Everything from seared scallops with some kind of puree to fois gras to seared tuna for starters (among others that I can’t recall). For mains, they serve the typical meats and fish but all accompanied with seasonal veg/fruit. But if you’re going to do this do it right and opt for the Tasting Menu for £75 pp. You will not be disappointed and it forces you to step outside your comfort zone a bit.

I don’t recall the desserts but I do the cheese. You can’t go wrong by ordering a British cheese plate.

My mouth is watering now...
