Live music at 100 Wardour St Restaurant and Bar, London
100 Wardour St, Soho, London - Restaurant Review
Style Points: 4/5
100 Wardour Street is located right in the heart of London’s Soho, and due to this ideal location there’s always a lively buzz inside.
The venue is known for its live music line-up five days a week in the downstairs restaurant and bar, and there is also a glitzy lounge area upstairs too.
We ate in the downstairs restaurant and club, which is a large space with a massive well-stocked bar. The stage for the musicians is in the centre of the room allowing views for all diners.
We dined from the set menu and tried the soup with basil oil and brioche croutons and venison and pork terrine.
The set menu was quite limited on choices so for our main course we settled for the mozzarella risotto with tomato and basil and the crispy confit duck. Although the duck was well-cooked the risotto was disappointing despite being made with fresh San Marzano tomatoes.
The desserts looked very appealing and we tried the cheesecake with meringue and dried cranberries and a warm pudding with ice cream and toasted nuts.
The set menu is £35 for three courses and on available at certain times, usually before the live music begins.
100 Wardour Street is luxurious, classy venue full of potential. When the live music starts it fills the space and enlivens it and the crowd. However the music does start very late and tables can only be reserved for a few hours before the next sitting, so you can be at risk of missing the music if you don’t arrive late enough.
It is the music that is the appeal of this venue, as the food from the set menu didn’t live up to the expectations set by the beautiful surrounding. However the a la carte menu promises some delightful dishes, though it is more expensive.
