About Senate Room
The Senate Room restaurant and cocktail bar located at the Royal Academy of Arts - Burlington Gardens.
Open everyday to enjoy our Italian deli style lunch and crafted cocktails. Happy hour 2-4-1 on cocktails from 5-7PM
The food encompasses all the best that Italy has to offer, from Piedmont in the north to Sicilia in the south. We recommend two or three plates per person, plates come from the kitchen when they are ready.
Enjoy some delicious crafted cocktails with authentic spirits from Italy and Sicily and a short, yet, balanced wine list from Italy and Latin countries.
A delicious lunch (£25 menu) and well priced - my only feedback would be that the starter was small and there were not many vegan options. We had a vegan guest and the £25 menu was not suitable for her. I am sure if she had asked though, this could have been adapted. Service was impeccable, it was just a shame that there wasn't anyone else eating in the restaurant too! Sundays are very quiet which is a shame for ambience. Would certainly go again though. Friday night cocktails are also a must - especially the one with sorbet!
What we had was lovely - but overpriced - including the wine prices. The music was jarring - but maybe because I don’t like jazz! Service was excellent.
A lovely restaurant to have lunch away from the crowds. Service and food excellent and can recommend the set lunch which both myself and guest really enjoyed.
Spacious and blessedly quiet.
I would suggest the peppers and artichokes etc which are preserved in oil are drained before including in the antipasto mixes ... the oil was dripping off my board and at the bottom of my wife's bowl and the meat, salad and cheese saturated in oil .... prepared more carefully it would have been an excellent lunch
Had a lovely lunch from the summer menu after the Tacita Dean exhibition. Crostini flight was delightful. Wine was cool, crisp. Staff were helpful, friendly. Setting is grand, spacious, though on a summer day - it would be better to be outdoors. Lovely to have such a gem of a eatery at RA. Recommend it to anyone seeing an exhibition there.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch yesterday. Excellent service and ambience.
