Went to the restaurant expecting good things but felt a bit let down. The service was good but the food was very average. It's not cheap and the fillet steak was quite underwhelming. I'm not sure I'd recommend it.

Unable to get into The Ivy without a reservation and when asked, their staff recommended the Rustic Stone. What a great recommendation it turned out to be. Excellent meals - good wine list - great service!

Love this place. You can get drinks at the bar beforehand including Japanese cocktails. But the highlight for me is the steak cooked on the stone. Fantastic choice of wines and very friendly staff. You gotta eat here.

Lovely looking restaurant, great idea to cook your own steak, fantastic modern look, however, that’s where it ended. We waited half an hour for our table despite booking, staff did not communicate our orders, we were sat on top of nearby couples and the portions...More
