Business lunch for two. Started well, food and service great. They put all the customers in one area which meant that a chat turned into a shout.. Only issue I have, the rest was great .. And will go again, but insist on a corner table....

This restaurant is in a very beautiful part of the city of London.
We had drinks at Fortnam and Mason in The Royal Exchange first which is wonderful.
Number One is s beautiful restaurant. The staff are seriously good. The menu is typical Brasserie and does not disappoint
It’s not silly money especially given the setting and quality of both food and service.
I’ve been a long standing customer and look forward to my next visit. A delight.

My friend & I came for the £19.50 for 2 courses meal, and to be honest it was all a little disappointing. My friend was disappointed with both his dishes, he went for the salt cod & chick pea salad which was very bland and lacked in seasoning, I ordered the beef carpaccio which was actually really nice with lovely olive oil. My friend then ordered the chicken which came out unaccompanied by any sides so he had to order additional, which now meant the meal was no longer £19.50 which I found a little on the deceptive side. I ordered the trout & ratatouille which again was pleasant but not much to write home about. You could definitely tell these dishes were not served with love.
As we were having an inexpensive meal we decided to buy a £40 bottle of wine, which was very nice but again slightly overpriced. The atmosphere was pleasant and had a nice buzz for a Thursday night. The staff were attentive although we ended up with 2 waiters serving us, which became a tad confusing as we were being asked the same questions twice. In conclusion we both came away a little deflated from the whole experience and with so many choices in the city, I don’t think I’ll be going back any time some.

I have been here a number of times over the years and it is a City staple. Really disappointed on this visit. The tables were all crammed together, making any kind of personal or discreet conversation impossible. We had to flag down waiters in order to progress all stages of the meal and payment. The food was cold and deeply ordinary. There was absolutely nothing about the experience that would make me want to return.

The set menu is very nice and a bargain for £19.50 pp. my only criticism is that if you fancy the steak or salmon there are supplements which is a shame they cannot put some more cheaper protein on. All in all though we had a very good steak and salmon dish each. I’d definitely go again

Beautiful room, in the morning very bustling but it can be noisy depending on who sits next to you. Prices geared towards bankers who can charge back or prices decent and sizes a bit small.

The place gets scarily empty after 10am when the good looking breakfast menu stops. So be early or go somewhere else.

Menu choice was good and the food delivered on flavour and presentation - we all had different dishes and each one was excellent. The service was impeccable , we were short of time and the staff responded accordingly. Restaurant atmosphere was good as very busy. Our restaurant of choice when in the city for lunch

Food was excellent, service was no less than should be expected for the price point - service charge was a bit toppy - £21 being 12.5%, but is what it is - know its optional, but who ever takes it off. Quite a noisy environment due to high ceilings, so not one for a private meeting over lunch, but nonetheless a very nice meal

I came back here because of the great service, great food and lovely ambience - a year to the day actually. This time, unfortunately, the service was very average, both very slow and we felt we weren't looked after. As the night went on things got slightly better but virtually no attention to us, most staff pre-occupied with setting up for the next day (I hate this, do it once we're gone!) and we didn't even get offered a complimentary, end of meal valentines drink! Is this mandatory, no but to make it special and to distinguish Lombard from others it would have been nice. It's a shame, as these inexpensive fundamentals are exactly that. Shame really and the problem is, next time I eat out in the City Lombard may not be my top 3 choice.

Awful service from start to finish. Had to wait a long time before making any order and after we ordered a bottle they left it on another table. Waiter took our order and was rude before walking off. 15 minutes later we found our order slip on the floor. Shocking and there are sooo many better restaurants in the city. I would not go back.

The food was lovely and the ambience good. However we were very disappointed that we were not able to dine on the set menu (2 courses for £19.50). The OpenTable website was very clear that it was available from 2 Jan to 28 Feb, and the only excluded date was 25 Jan (Burns Night). We were there on 13 Feb but were told this deal was not available and the only set menu was the Valentine's Day menu (£48) which was running from 13-15 Feb. We had a nice meal but spent much more than we had been led to believe we would. The waiter did give us a bottle of Prosecco to apologise, and blamed OpenTable for getting it wrong....I see the OpenTable website has now been changed to say "not available on 14th and 15th Feb" - but we were there on 13th.... Disappointing.

A great find for Central London. This was my second visit with friends. On a Friday (compared to mid-week) it was bustling rather than quiet, and the lively atmosphere was delightful. The set menu is great value at £23.50 for 3 courses, and all excellent quality. The drinks however are expensive, so it will still come to £50 per head in all likelihood. Service was great with friendly, charming staff. A lovely evening out and I would highly recommend overall!
