Excellent food. Clearly just starting out and a fairly limited menu at the moment, but each dish was fantastic. Decent wine list. Top quality service. Dining room was a bit quiet (Tuesday night in half term) hence low score for atmosphere. Will definitely come back.

We went because of the hype - the newest Wimbledon restaurant was meant to be an answer to our wishes - modern, uncomplicated, good food etc. It was nothing like it. We found it very pretentious and disappointing. The food was very mediocre at best. The canapes are served in bowls full of stones: I am sure that some older folk would happily bite into them as the lighting was poor that you cannot see very well. The tasting menu left wanting to taste something of substance. The only redeeming feature was service, absolutely impeccable. We'll give it a miss from now on, not worth the money.

The food is well cooked and very tasty. It's a little left field and not overly fancy, which suited us fine. There's a good range of wines by the glass, if you're not up for a bottle. Also some unusual G&T's. A great addition to the Wimbledon culinary scene.

Had an excellent Saturday lunch at Black Radish. Excellent food. Excellent service. We really like the concept of a limited menu that features seasonally fresh food, more restaurants should do this to cut down on waste. Lunch set menu very good value for what you get.

Yes, we enjoyed our dinner for seven, though probably not the best restaurant to bring children, though we thank the staff for adjusting dishes for them.

We had dinner last night at your restaurant. It was lovely, the food great, the service attentive. Unfortunately we will not be back. We were kicked out of our table after 1:50. Less than a 2 hour booking for a £380 meal is just not acceptable. We did not linger over our meal. We at at the pace that the waiters set which was fast but not crazy. We were not able to have a coffee or an after dinner drink and therefor went somewhere else to do so. I so much want you to do well but unfortunately could not recommend you for this reason.

I thought the Cheeseboard was very unimpressive for £12.50. I thought that you would have provided a more interesting and diverse choice.

What a fabulous Sunday roast! In fact it’s more than a mere roast as you get 3 sharing starters, which are each exquisite, and a wonderful dessert, all for a great value set price. The roast itself is one fabulous meat of the day with perfectly cooked sides. Add in lovely service and you have the perfect way to spend a Sunday!

Superb lunch, so nice to go to a restaurant where the Chef is creative and only uses the best seasonal ingredients, which are top quality. Very much looking forward to the Spring menu. We will be back soon. Also looking forward to trying the Sunday lunch, and also The Chefs Table. Service was excellent.

I booked a table early in the week for dinner on Saturday. The only times available were 6:30 and 9pm. As there was no notification of a time restraint for the table I booked for 6:30. Two hours before the meal, I received a voicemail informing me that we had to return the table at 8:20. We arrived at the restaurant and the first thing we were greeted with was being told we had to return the table at 8:20. At 8pm the restaurant manager came over to our table and 2 others tables to instruct us all that we had 15 minutes to vacate the tables. One couple was in the middle of their main course. All three tables complained about the manner that we had been treated in. We were unable to have a coffee to finish our meal as we had to leave. This is not acceptable service in a restaurant of your price point. I expect to have a table to enjoy my evening and not to be hounded out before we were ready. Given you had no booking policy to indicate this, the way it was communicated by the staff was unacceptable. The manager was entirely unapologetic and simple stated it was the “rules”. There was no acknowledgement of the inconvenience or gesture of goodwill. The food was excellent but sadly I cannot say I would return or recommend the restaurant because of the experience.

Restaurant Response

Hi Kathryn Im very sorry you had a negative experience with us. Im very sorry you had to leave without finishing up how you would have liked. Unfortunately, Its very tricky for us to let bookings run over as we have no bar area so there is nowhere for the new tables to wait. I understand that our booking system has sent you an email requesting your opinion (as it does for all guests) but I would like to address a few points though as I think your review is misleading to anyone reading. 1. Terms and Conditions When you booked via Resdiary at 22:27 on the 8th of January you ticked that you had read and agreed to our Terms and Conditions. These clearly state; “As we are a small restaurant, we will need your table back 2 hours after your reservation if the time of your reservation is before 8pm, if you feel you might require longer please do let us know and, where possible, we will do our best to accommodate. We will call you in the week leading up to your booking to confirm the reservation. To hold your table we will require confirmation by 11am on the day of your reservation at the latest. If we cannot confirm the table with you, it may be released on the day or night of your booking.” We also reminded you of this on arrival and attempted to phone you multiple times beforehand to confirm. 2. Time Allocation at Tables/ Relay Policy Im sorry that we have to have this policy but its the only way to make the business work, This is standard in all levels of restaurants from Fast Food to Michelin Star. 2 Hours is more than long enough 99.9% of the time, even if guests choose to have an aperitif, 5 course tasting menu and Digestif/Coffee. We get more complaints about the food being too quick than anything else. The 2 hour limit is also standard for a restaurant operating in our style. 3. Other Tables Experiences The table next to you came to the restaurant and booked directly with me last Thursday afternoon. He requested a 7:00 table, I advised him that we could only squeeze him in if he would be able to vacate the table for the next booking at 8:30 unless there were any cancellations, he told me that he understood, When I heard that when the Restaurant Manager told him that he only had 15 minutes left he wasn’t happy I couldn’t believe it as I had been so clear with him and he had seemingly been so understanding. Our only other relay table that evening was the one over from them. They were 25 minutes late for their 6:30 Booking so were a little rushed too. They also ticked that they had read and understood our Terms and Conditions regarding time allocations. 4. The Restaurant Managers Dealings with you At 8:10pm He advised all of the relay tables that they had 10/15 minutes left, in reflection he should have been clearer that it was 15 minutes not 10(He would of course need 5 minutes to relay the table for the next group) , I really do apologise if this put you under extra pressure to finish. — Although I feel like we already do a lot to stop this situation arising we have taken more steps to not let this happen again; We’ve created an extra overflow table that is not open to bookings to counter the risk. Again Im really sorry to hear you’ve left dissatisfied, please contact me directly at [email protected] if you’d be willing to come again, I would love to change your feelings towards us and make sure you have a great evening! Thank you, Toby Cartwright Head Chef and Co-Owner
