We look vet this restraint, particularly the cheese soufflé, roasted, spiced nut salad and John Dory. The only disappointment was the stale tasting pancakes which may be because they are gluten free.

Amazing food in a lovely setting with the friendliest staff from the door man, to the waiters and chef. Can't wait to go back!

Great food and atmosphere, and excellent service. The bouncer on the door kindly walked us to the corner to our car as we were a group of tourists, and would not accept a tip. I would highly recommend a visit here.

Tip-top service crew, with good wine knowledge. Quality grills for dining in the area. Great place with ambience. Too dim for my aged companions, okay for me. Desserts average.

I recently enjoyed a delicious three course meal at Savoy Cabbage. The space itself is a conversation-starter -- a converted loft with exposed brick and cabbage-shaped lights hanging overhead! The ambiance is warm and cosy - you could spend the better half of an evening...More
