"The price has more to do with Claridge’s ego than the restaurant itself, it seems to me. This, inevitably, fills the atmosphere with the desire to be Seen in Claridge’s. But the food isn’t at fault: most of it, indeed, is faultless." READ REVIEW

"This is ornate, laboriously concocted food, but importantly it is still food. Actual dinner that one wants to eat. The following four courses whizzed past without a bum note. I am not the world’s biggest steak tartare disciple, but Rogan’s raw beef on smoked broccoli cream with a hint of apple made me a convert." READ REVIEW

"Simon Rogan is probably the best chef now cooking in Britain, but this is not the best restaurant, or anything close to it. Perhaps because it arrives at a moment of crisis in the history of eating out, a time when we just do not know what we want." READ REVIEW

"I had no idea who the people eating here are: hotel guests probably, foodie-blog tourists. There was less sense of occasion than you find at Nando’s; it’s not that it’s not interesting, tasteful and comfortable; it’s just that an old, venerable, mannered ambience has been replaced with a new disordered and confused one. This is a dinner of finely mixed messages." READ REVIEW

"There are several highlights to the tasting menu, including duck hearts in a bowl of pureed potato and Winslade cheese; and an even more unlikely-sounding dish, grilled salad with Isle of Mull cheese, truffle custard and cobnuts. Bread is served as a course in itself with a mushroom broth on the side. It works." READ REVIEW

"So yes, I was always going to enjoy Fera. I am a shameless Simon Rogan fan, loved all his other restaurants and I consider this to be, while not quite on the level of the peerless L'Enclume, which has time and location on its side, still one of the few genuinely innovative and idiosyncratic restaurants in London."

"But there is another problem, the one I whined about a few weeks ago. This is a tasting menu and none of the things you really want to eat – the duck hearts, the prawns, the brill, the pork – turn up in the portions you hope for. They are here and then gone." READ REVIEW

"These sort of grand hotel dining rooms are not my natural hunting ground. But Fera has restored my faith in ‘feen deening’. It even tempered my hatred of the Tasting Menu. Rogan sure can cook. Bring on the shiny stars." READ REVIEW

"Raphael Rodriguez giving us a genial deal on a replacement for suggested wine that wasn’t to our liking — stretches expenses to breaking point, and I wouldn’t pay my own money for this food. That is a judgment, is it not? My interest lies not in the idle weeds but in the sustaining corn." READ REVIEW
