    Service was very slow. We had to wait 45 minutes for main course. As we had arrived an hour early for cocktails it would have been better if they had taken our order then. Food was good when it arrived though

    We come along to Rules 2-3 times per year and we are never discounted with the level of service

    What can you say, the restaurant is a delight. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is delicious. One could spend hours just looking in all the nooks and crannies. I’d mentioned on booking that it was a special birthday for my husband and at the end of the meal they presented a dessert with a candle which was just a lovely touch.

    As always, Rules is absolutely first-class in every sense - the service perfect and unobtrusive, the quality of the presentation excellent and of course the food always delicious. Everything I’ve ever had at Rules has been delicious, and you can taste the care in every dish.

    We had a wonderful experience at Rules. The night starts with the doorman’s formal welcome and then you get taken into the beautiful dining room, which is full of character. We felt like we had stepped back in time. The menu is traditional English dishes, which were all freshly prepared and really tasty. Everyone loved their meals. Cocktails were also great. The service was professional and allowed us time to enjoy our evening.

    Very nice decorated old restaurant. The waiters have been very friendly and attentively. Our beef (entrecote) was on the point. The selection of wines was good and delicious.

    As ever, the food was delicious. We had a fairly long wait for the meal to arrive but as it is freshly cooked it was worth waiting for. It was, perhaps, a while longer than we have experienced before. The restaurant was almost full and the staff who are friendly and helpful were kept busy. The delay has not deterred us from returning at a future date.

    Once again Rules delivered an outstanding experience. From the moment the friendly doorman greeted us to the moment he said “goodbye” everyone and everything was excellent. A both relaxing and decadent experience. I would recommend getting there early and treating yourselves to a cocktail upstairs.
