I love soft launches, it means I can eat double the amount as everything is half the price :) You could tell it was very new, the decor is contemporary and modern as you would expect from most restaurants which are part of a hotel. As a wheelchair user, there was a step at the entrance, but staff were more than willing to help if required.  I liked that the menu was on one page so you're not overwhelmed with choices.  The bite size tacos were really good. My only complaint was that there should be more of it!  The lobster and salmon ceviche also good, as well as the melt in the mouth beef tenderloin.  The only dish I didn't like were the mini burgers as they were a bit dry. Our waitress was so sweet and nice, she kept checking up on us without being intrusive. Another member of staff (who I assumed was the manager) later came and spoke to us, giving us recommendations on the dessert, which we went for and they were pretty amazing too, especially the coffee creme brulee. We gave him feedback on which dishes we enjoyed and ones which we didn't.  I liked that they made an effort and it felt more personal. Every member of staff greeted us and was accommodating by making more space for me to get past in my wheelchair.  I appreciate a place which has great service as well as good food.  Portions are a bit on the small side considering the price, so I'm not sure if I would come back again and pay full price unless it was a treat... then again I do treat myself a lot so probably would be back :)

Very crisp and clean large 'open' restaurant - big tables and lots of space which makes a change from the squash-them-in attitude all too prevalent these days. Staff are attentive but not intrusive and food is excellent, Portions are a little on the small side but food is of a high standard and presented well. Desserts seemed massive in comparison and very sweet, rich and delicious.

Had a very disappointing dinner at Scoff and Banter in Covent Garden last night, (18/2/14). Mess up with the order taking meant that our meal was almost an hour getting out of the kitchen. When it arrived, it was wrong. We were going to the Theatre so did not have a lot of spare time to play with. I appreciate the managers efforts to reduce the bill and give some free drinks - he tried bless him - but the reality was that it was a pretty dreadful experience. Do not recommend the place.
