Just back from London....Kudos to Simon for the recommendation of the Capitol hotel. Was in our top 5 meals ever. Sublime food and service. From the moment we sat down it was a special evening. I should have listened to his advice on Criterion. Was a disaster from start to finish. The waitress "forgot" our kir order when we sat down and apps were brought out 5 minutes later. She then proceeded to not only have hysterical crying fit, but never apologized and was full of attitude. the food was cafeteria style at best and for the price, a total waste of time. Avoid at all costs. Thanks Simon on the rec of the Capitol. It was amazing. We never made it to Gavroche as my sidekick was exhausted first day and decided he wanted to hang in the pubs. The Capitol was enough of a serious meal for a 3 night stay.
