Simpson's In The Strand calificaciones y reseñas
Fabulous dinner. The food was excellent. The service was aloof and not helpful with suggestions. The combination of foreigners serving foreigners made communication frustrating.
I was there solo and the large dining hall ambience wasn't great for me who prefers eating solo at a bar but I'd still go back for a taste of the excellent English cuisine.
I love places like this and would definitely recommend it. Just research what you'd like before you go because the staff is not helpful.
Loved the piano.
Everything about Simpsons on the Strand says something. If you are within the Strand early for the reservation I would recommend going to there up stairs bar, the selection of cocktails and drinks are wonderful. I would definitely recommend one of there cocktails.
The grandeur of the restaurant , attentiveness of staff and food says quality. I have definitely added the address and phone number of this restaurant to my phone book.
Our visit to Simpsons on this occasion was to thank friends for helping organise a family celebration. Simpsons menu, service and general ambiance did not disappoint and our friends throughly enjoyed the whole experience.
The Dover sole was cooked to perfection , the beef was excellent and the partridge was very tasty. All in all a resounding success.
Thank you Simpsons.
My wife and I dined at Simpsons on Thursday night last, 16th February. We had the most wonderful experience in every way. I had left a note on the online booking saying that we were on a flying visit to our favourite city and would appreciate the best available table. Boy did everybody at Simpsons push the boat out for us - and all the staff seemed to be aware of our request. From the reception at the front door to the most wonderfully situated table, to the attention we received all evening - it was a perfect occasion. The food and wine were superb. My only regret is that I do not recall the names of everybody who looked after us that evening - I would be obliged if this message could be conveyed to all staff at Simpsons - there is obviously a great culture of a very high level of service, and it shows. Again many thanks to all for greatly exceeding our expectations and making it an exceptional evening.
A nice venue, impressive entrance and really good cocktail bar upstairs that we could enjoy before our meal. I went with my wife for Valentine's Day and was delighted to see they had listened to my request for a booth seat, even though they are clearly meant for at least 4!
However I was really disappointed to see that they had gone down the route of providing a vastly slimmed down menu. Very frustrating when restaurants do this, I had in fact cancelled a previous booking when that restaurant called to confirm I was happy with the use of such a menu.
As such there was very little choice. One of the starters brought out was incorrect; the waiter was more than happy to change but we decided to stick with it (it was one we were considering anyway and it would mean eating starters separately or else wasting two plates of food). Both were good.
For main we had the Chateaubriand, which was very much medium rather than the medium-rare requested. It was served with roast potatoes that would have been much more at home in a school canteen! Overdone, tough and dry.
We wouldn't usually order dessert, but it was a set menu so no choice. Decent fayre, but nothing to write home about.
I'm sure this isn't representative of their usual food, but it seemed like they just had total disdain for anyone dining on Valentine's Day and shoved out some leftovers.
Cocktails were great, the service was excellent - friendly and attentive (if you like the more aloof style you might find it a little too fussy). There was an occasional bit of piano playing, which was nice, but did highlight the lack of background music when not playing.
It is a nice, classy venue, great staff, just completely let down by the special menu and subsequent food on the day (main course mainly). £85 per person (excl. drinks) when there's limited choice and you don't actually want dessert is a bit steep.
The food was generally good, and the beef was excellent. There is an attractive "tiredness" to the decor which seems is unchanged since it was built. We sat in one of the cosy cabins which created a lovely Valentines ambience! One glass of Prosecco was "off" but they happily replaced and did not charge. The service was very good and attentive. Quite expensive at £85 a head but nevertheless an enjoyable evening
This place is quite interesting, it's got so much history that it's almost left in the past. When comparing with other restaurants in this price bracket (The shard, city social, sky garden) it doesn't really compete. It's nice to go to, the service was okay, definitely get the beef or lamb from the trolley service as that was the highlight. The ambience was strange, people in hoodies and then people in very fancy suits, a pianist that would only play on and off, so you have a lot of time where it's pretty quiet. If you have family visiting and want a very traditional British meal this place is perfect.
It was our second visit and our 4 friends first. We all agreed it was a lovely choice of venue and the food was delicious if obviously quite expensive. Our only gripe was with the very small vegetable portions at very high prices which seemed a little unnecessary in such a lovely top end establishment.
A disappointing evening overall. The carpet and chairs in the "grand entrance" were dirty and what we expected to be iconic was shabby and unwelcoming. The service was slow and sloppy - our amuse bouche china was only removed to make way for our main courses as they arrived. Calves liver was partially inedible since the sinew had not been removed and blue cheese dumplings were cold and stodgy. I was offered meat from the carvery but it was too late. Other meals were adequate. Mashed potato was delicious not unexpectedly for £9.00 per portion. We ordered a second bottle of wine which was forgotten until we chased it. in short, what we expected to be a first class birthday dinner was little short of mediocre. We will not be returning.
Impeccable service and great food and drink. The character of the restaurant is brilliant has a lovely relaxed feel. The steak and kidney pudding would have fed a family of four! My wife always has the lobster soup which never fails. Followed by monkfish which was tasty. The wine selection is extensive which a mix of premier and affordable ones.
My friend and I went for a leisurely lunch at Simpsons to celebrate her 60th birthday. We wanted somewhere with an old-fashioned, traditionally English menu and atmosphere. Simpsons fitted the bill perfectly with its historic decorated ceilings and picture covered wood panelled walls. The staff were courteous and charming, making us feel welcome, and lunch was served in an unhurried way with seemingly effortless understated efficiency. Delicious classic English fare - I had beef wellington and my friend steak and kidney pudding. We started with a glass of very good English sparkling wine to celebrate and then had a very good half bottle of red recommended by our waiter. Although the portions were generous we couldn't resist the treacle pudding and the apple tart for dessert. The restaurant is large and quite busy yet seemed to maintain a quiet, relaxed atmosphere making conversation easy and relaxed. It's not the cheapest but you get what you pay for and it was great for a special occasion.
Simpsons is always good for lunch, still doing beef and lamb from the trolley which is excellent. Once again like most central London restaurants they advertise a fixed lunch menu and then don't give it so you have to ask. It's great value and by far the best way to lunch here but the staple a la carte menu is always great.
The service Is terrible at the restaurant - this is not a silver service experience. The food is just plonked on the table as if they are in a rush and want to get rid of you. we ordered the roast beef and lamb dinner which is supposed to be their speciality - it was like being in Macdonalds as fast as we ordered it the food arrived obviously all waiting in the back to be bought straight out so not very fresh or warm. The dinner is the same as any Sunday dinner except you pay £30 instead of £10 in a nice pub on a Sunday where food is prepared on an individual basis.
I would not recommend this to anyone and it is sad that the Savoy hotel associate themselves with this restaurant.
When you paying the prices they advertise you should get good service and also value for your money not a fast food take away experience.
We went to celebrate a family birthday. The restaurant in beautiful but it is a shame that Simpson's do not enforce their dress code, I know it sounds snobbish but you go to a place like this for the ambiance as well as the food. The service was excellent with good wine recommendations. We stuck to dishes that Simpson's is famous for, roast beef and lamb and steak and kidney pie all were delicious and were served with sensible side dishes which meant we had room for dessert!! We can highly recommend the Quidditch Pudding.
Sunday roast beef with all the trimmings was excellent, served in style. Lovely welcome from the staff, and nice to chat with the cloakroom gentleman. Service was super, and the surroundings full of character. Would love to return and sample more of the tempting menu.
