A superb outing and a lovely evening were both ruined by a very ignorant arrogant impolite indecent offensive maitre d' . Had dinner on Friday 13 December 2013, had a booking for 3 at 7:30 pm, 1- I arrived round 7:05 pm, found the table ready, that was nice 2- Second guest arrived on time. 3- Third guest was 40 minutes late. That I do admitt 4- The food arrived late. After about 15 minutes, a maitre came to our table to apologize for the delay, and that food will be served in about 4 minutes. The food arrived another 15 minutes later. 5- Another maitre d' came at 9:30 pm, asking us to leave. He said that there was another booking made for the same table at 9:30 pm, and that the customers were waiting. I told @ so you're asking us to leave?@ He said: "yes". I found that very rude and improper. I paid the bill, asked to speak to the manager. That same maitre d' came again ( I don't think he was the manager), claimed that it was mentioned that the table had to be returned by 9:30 pm, and that by making the booking means that we accept the terms and conditions. I reviewed the booking confirmation and found no mention that we had to return the table by 9:30 pm. (I think he was lying). Eventhough if there was another reservation at 9:30 pm, or even if there weren't and that we had only 2 hours, I believe we should had been aware from the beginning or at least an hour before, but not on the spot, and that we should leave immediately. I find this very rude, very improper, very impolite, and not professional at all.

Looked great, menu inspired, but the service was a major let down. Clumps of staff walking aimlessly, not seeking eye contact or even hand-waves. Three times I had to get up to approach one of these idle staffers in order to remind them of what had been ordered and was now more than a little late in coming. Steak was good but the chips accompanying it would have warranted money back at McDonalds.


Went there for a family dinner last night. The food was good, not exceptional, the veal was twice the size it needed to be. The service was good but the reception from the 'suits' hanging around the enterance was dreadfull. It put me off the whole evening but luckerley the service is optional, so I declined to leave any. I hope the wating staff complain about them letting the team down.


Terrible. One of the most over priced and underwhelming lunches i have experienced in London to date. Went with great expectations and was appallingly let down.

The Colbert, just a re-vamped Oriel's ? The staff are charming, thoughtful, we just came in for tea and cakes - The service was appropriate but the bill took ten minutes to arrive, and i had to get it....The suits cloggin up the entrance corridor made me think of Emperor penguins waiting for the big bonanza.! the trouble is there are too many chiefs, who do nothing, and a dysfunctional staff. No, Oriels was far superior and the service was short, snappy and excellent, true professionals.


Terrible terrible food! I cannot understand what they achieved by closing Oriel. Oriel had terrible food and Colbert has terrible food as well. Had dinner there on Monday, the opening day. Had a steak. Really awful. Will never eat there again!
