What an amazing evening!!!! Exactly what me and my friends were looking for. The whole night was outstanding in general with uncountable choices of Gins at the Gillray's gin bar.The drink - Jubilee, which was introduced by the bartender Francesco and Cosmin. Celia warmly welcomed us and showed us our way to the table overlooking the Thames river. Our server, Tyrell went above and beyond answering all our questions from the food preparation to wine pairing suggestions. Staffs was patient, enthusiastic and professional. The T-Bone steak was perfectly prepared, as well as the scallop and what a PHENOMENALLLLLL night!!

I don't usually remember names but yea, it was THAT good. Highly recommended
We will be back soon.

The experience in a restaurant will always be something special, when the staff goes all the way, to give their guests a great experience. This was our experience at the Gillray's. The food tastes better, the decor is more attractive - yes you just get happy when you meet people who are proud of their job and enjoy taking care of their guests. Thank you for your hospitality.

Began on an off note. Why, in a completely empty room,does a host bring a person to the single worst table in the house, the only one by a service station? Sexism? Ageism? who knows. Unfortunately it happens a lot. However, having clearly pointed out that in an empty room I was not having the worst table in the house, things got better. Food good, service lovely, reasonable value. a nice touch was when they presented a box of various steak knives to choose from. Steak was perfect. Contrary to some people's attitude, they recognize that rare meat is not illegal so the steak was cooked to perfection. Nice location as well.
