We were visiting the city of Naples and I prearranged a dinner reservation for my husband’s birthday and chose The London Club because of the Jazz and reviews of fine dining. Upon entering the resort the hostess greeted us and preceded to take us upstairs. She was very polite and engaged in conversation about where we lived and when we arrived upstairs she asked where we wanted to sit and stated booths weren’t available. After we were seated at a table for a few minutes a server gave us water. We sat for a few more minutes and saw someone passing our table and presumed it was our waiter however he didn’t stop. The young man finally came to our table and asked did we want something to drink and I asked “Who are you?” since he didn’t introduce himself. He stated, “Lewis”. We ordered a drink and selected a menu item. When Lewis brought our food he crossed his arms in front of us instead of serving from either side. Having traveled around the world and experienced fine dining this was something we had never encountered. He seemed to be uncomfortable serving us and wasn’t attentive to us throughout the evening. At one point we had to ask the waiter to get him. As African Americans, who travel extensively we are use to stares and awkward behaviors from others but on my husband’s special day I didn’t appreciate it. And I wonder why do we feel less welcome in our own country than abroad. On our next visit to Naples, The London Club will not have dinner although the greeter, the hostess and band was great due to how our server treated us. I really hate my husband’s special day wasn’t that special at all.
This is the place we've been looking for. It's a bit pricey but worth it on special occasions. The food was delicious, although the portions were on the small side. I got blackened shrimp and grits. Really good. The drinks were packed with ice so you end up with about 1/3 of a drink. (I just asked for no ice on the next one.) The service was good. The entertainment was what we liked the best. We went for the later seating and a band played with a female singer. She was very good. It had a Nora Jones, Diana Krall vibe. The atmosphere was cozy and dark with candles on each table. We sat in a booth right in front of the band. The music wasn't super loud either. We could still carry on a conversation. I'd say if the portions (of food and drink) were a little more generous, it would've been perfect. We'll definitely go back.
Great venue for dinner and music. Nice cozy club feel.
We didn't get to order anything to eat or drink but the live entertainment was great and it's just a nice, chill atmosphere. Great place for an informal date. The night we went the music was more like soft rock and not jazz at all. The band and singer were great but I'm guessing they have various genres on different nights- I went on a Thursday night.The building is absolutely GORGEOUS! The decor is high end and the art is fascinating! I enjoyed the vibe here and will definitely return.
So spectacular!! The ambience. The music. The meal (sea bass), the service etc. Spectacular
