Having had an exquisite evening at twotwentytwo, we can personally assure you that The Landmark London provides a perfect fine-dining experience. The staff are friendly, professional, and highly-competent, and the ambience is relaxed and classy; smooth jazz plays in the background. The décor corresponds with that of the hotel, in that it is romantic, luxurious, and reminiscent of a past era. The restaurant and bar are elegantly upholstered, whilst grand chandeliers hang from the ceiling. The food and drink menus were impressive, with a carefully considered wine list, titillating cocktails, and a vast mixture of innovative and classic European dishes. It was difficult to choose from such a gorgeous selection but staff were incredibly helpful, and it was obvious that any choice would be delightful. Eventually, our choices included fabulous dishes such as the beef carpaccio with black truffle-oil and shaved Parmesan, the seabass with crab & chilli risotto and the vanilla crème-brulée. All dishes were fresh, delicately prepared and exquisite to taste. The mouth-watering Velvetini cocktail was perfectly made by an expert mixologist, and staff also helped us pick the perfect wine to accompany our meal.
Whether you’re situated near to or far from London, and even if you’re a Londoner – The Landmark London is most certainly one of the ‘gems’ of this bustling city. It is conspicuously and uniquely elegant, and guests are sure to have a superb experience. This amazing hotel, evocative of a glamorous bygone era, will always have a timeless and amazing charm.
