I’m so sorry to complain but the steak was so tough neither of us even ate it. We did get the meal deal but it was actually inedible, we both just gave up.
The chips and sauce were nice.
The staff were lovely but started hoovering right near our table - maybe as we were the only people in there.

Had the large prime rib steak. It was promised at 1kg although it didn't seem quite that big. The taste was excellent and most of the meat was tender. The veg sides were superb, especially the mushroom and spinach plates - wish they were a bit more generous in their portions of veg. The only big disappointment was the ill-conceived fried bone marrow which was served breaded and fried. The marrow was lost in the breading and the loaf of bread that came with it (without butter) was pointless since the fried marrow wouldn't spread on it. Nice Merlot at a reasonable price. Service was very good and the waitress was knowledgable. I would go again.

Gillray's Steakhouse is my regular choice when I have guests visiting, - It's an impressive venue (with great views) in a convenient location, and the service is always excellent. I'm intolerant to wheat, and the staff are always understanding and I'm never disappointed with the food. Highly recommended!

Sunday roast was reasonable. We chose the strip loin which was unfortunately hard to cut due to high sided plates. The most frustrating part of the lunch was the spoon orchestra. A waiter was sorting the cutlery constantly which created a cafeteria atmosphere in a restaurant that charges £22 for lunch, not smart.

What a find! I met family and friends for an early dinner at Gillrays and we were very happy with the service and quality of food we received. The location is beautiful. Within extremely elegant surrounds of the Marriott, and our table overlooked the Thames. Just lovely.

What a lovely, lovely experience. My husband and I were there for a pre-theatre meal and our only wish is that we would have given ourselves more time to enjoy it. To begin we were lucky enough to have a table by the window which overlooked the Thames. The ambiance was relaxed and comfortable. We were impressed by the originality of the starter menu which did not disappoint - the bacon rashers were so good! Our mains were delicious as well - my steak was seasoned deliciously and my husband enjoyed the Yorkshire pudding meal. Our late arrival and misjudgment of the time it would take us to get to the theatre meant we needed to eat as quickly as possible and let our server know. She made sure to keep checking on our food and got her manager involved as well. Everything came out perfect and with enough time to quickly eat and make our show on time.

What a great place to meet friends and enjoy a Friday evening meal together. Food was excellent however the special T-bone arrived more cooked than the rare we ordered. Service was superb, attentive but not overstated.

I have dined here several times. It is a consistent establishment when it comes to service and food. I chose them for proximity to the South Bank Center. The wait staff did an excellent job of providing me a full service meal that got me out of the restaurant with plenty of time to comfortably make curtain call.

I've hosted many dinners at Gillray's Steakhouse, and myself and my guests have always been been impressed. On this occasion however, the restaurant didn't quite meet it's usual high standards... The filet steaks that we wanted were unavailable (fair enough - they'd sold out), so we ordered rump steaks instead. However, a while after ordering the waiter returned sheepishly, to announce that the chef wasn't happy with the quality of the meat, so could we order something else (again, unfortunate, but I appreciated the chef's honesty - we went for sirloin as our third choice). The food when it arrived was as delicious as ever (although the wrong sauces were paired with the wrong steaks). The service was very slow - I was happy that the restaurant was quiet and we were not being rushed through our meal, - but one of my guests complained that he was frustrated that there was no waiter to call over, and made a small scene when a waiter eventually appeared. The restaurant was good at catering for the wheat-intolerance of one diner. The bill was £281.19 for the five of us - which was more than I felt was fair bearing in mind the difficulties (and on checking the receipt after I'd returned home, I noted that I'd been charged a random £1.50 for a bread roll (we hadn't ordered or received any bread rolls).

The food honestly was average. It was good but not great. It took a while for our meals to come out. I have been in town for almost a week and had better meals.

We ended up choosing this spot since we are staying at the Marriott and have an early flight out the next day. We wanted to grab something close by so we chose Gillray’s.

Took the wife for our anniversary having had a good meal here before on my own.the ribeye was probably, if not the worst steak I,ve ever been served in a restaurant,nearly cold and mainly fat.the sides and desserts were fine.the manager was very apologetic and took the steaks off the bill and gave us complimentary drinks so I have no issue with that or the staff who were lovely,polite and friendly.it did,nt completely ruin the afternoon as we still had a nice time.i would visit again,but that meat,they can and should have served better.

Starter of squid was a little cold and broccoli was had some darken marks on them.

Steak was nice, maybe a little overdone for medium.

Service was not very attentive and had to ask for bill twice even though the restaurant was not very busy.

Beautiful restaurant but needs improvement.

The food was excellent but the occasion was spoiled by a waiter who was snotty about me asking for the Theatre menu without specifying that when I booked the table. We both went a la carte but not because of him

Went for breakfast with 3 other firms, they all had omelettes and said it was okay, I ordered eggs royals,, the muffin tasted stale, the salmon was not the best quality and my hollandaise sauce, when it arrived I thought they had accidentally given me scrambled eggs, so it wasn’t good. We were pushed for time as the restaurant loses for breakfast so I just ate through what I could. I was disappointed.
I wouldn’t recommend for breakfast,but perhaps their steaks are much better quality.

I am amazed with the quality of this restaurant and in a Marriott. We had steaks that maybe where the worst we ever had. Not just one but 6 different ones. This is our 4th dinner in London, and I can't believe how terrible this meal was. The price would have made sense IF the meal was the quality advertised. I would avoid this place.
