We've been fans of Lamberts for a long time. Absolutely outstanding food. In many visits, they've never failed to either very-much satisfy or to impress. Even when convincing us to push the boat out on some choices (Oysters Rockefeller were fantastic). The service is very friendly and personable. There is not a whiff of attitude, which can't be said for other restaurants of this caliber. If there's any criticism, it would be that this intimately-small place add another person for service to keep things clicking along a little faster at points.

We visited Lamberts yesterday for the first time after reading about it in the Time Out Top 100 dishes. The meal was outstanding on every level - stunning grilled mackerel with dill cakes starter, roast beef that melted in the mouth (with outstanding creamed horseradish) and a knockout chocolate desert - Dark Chocolate Crema, Espresso Granita, Praline. Friendly service and fantastic value for money. We can't wait to return next weekend


Four of us tried Lamberts for the first time on a saturday night. The food is fantastic (pigeon to start followed by lamb) and of a distinctly better quality and higher complexity than what they charge. Excellent wine list: varied and very good value. BUT - service could be better. Whilst nicely relaxed, there was a lack of warmth and interest in our dining experience and lack of enthusiasm in the food that was being served. This was a shame as this is cooking to be really proud of - they just need to create the atmosphere to go with it.


Had a great meal last saturday - certainly the best place in balham we've eaten. Really good food BUT most important - friendly, attentive but relaxed service!


Had dinner here last Friday evening. Found the food to be fantastic, service excellent (available when needed but not constantly hovering) and overall ambience just right for a very smart neighbourhood restaurant! will be back...

This is our favorite restaurant around here in Balham. The food is exquisite, the staff are informative and attentive (though not intrusive) and the wine list covers a wide price range and is helpfully arranged according to wine style. Joe Lambert has created a real gem!
