My first trip to V&A will be Nov 30, but I hear they do not have a full bar in the restaurant but use the bar at another GF restaurant.

I'm sure you'll have a fantastic experience - will be third time to V&A's for my wife and I, first time for her brother/sister and their spouses.

They really do a good job with the wine pairings but you can certainly get a bottle of wine or pretty much any mixed drink and maybe a couple of decent beers (not many) instead...last visit about 2-3 years ago we finished off a half bottle of Penfold's Grange that the couple next to us left - we certainly lucked out on that.

One thing I've been wondering about...the wine pairings. I've tried for years to like wine with no success. Lots of wine-drinking friends have tried to bring me to the wine-o side of things and I just can't seem to make it. There's always something I don't like about all the different wines I've tried. In recent years I've given up on wine almost entirely. Sooooo, I'm wondering if V&A's pairings might be something I'd finally like if I tried again. I'm almost embarrassed to ask if I called V&A's, but I so wish there was a beer pairing. I know, I know. How tacky. Right? There's just such an array of wonderful beers/lagers/ales out there now I feel like it wouldn't be that much of a stretch for this alternative to work. Seriously. And I know I'm not the only person who would enjoy the experience of finer beers with fine cuisine.

**sigh** Hubby thinks I should book the dinner but not the wine. So if you don't have wine pairings, what beverages are offered? Standard sodas, tea, and water? ((Not that I'm a soda person...I'm not...but the hubby sure is!))
It's a lot of money (and a lot of wine!) for someone who doesn't like wine. I DO like wine, but the wine pairing was too much for me; I just ordered two glasses separately, taking the server's advice on which course I was eating at the time. That was more than enough!

But as noted above, you don't have to decide until you're seated.

Yes, they have standard sodas, a selection of teas, iced tea, coffee, water and sparkling water.

Since we are traveling from Australia my DBF doesn't want to lug a full suit with him. Will they lend him a jacket for the night?
I would also love to document the night, would it be very uncouth for me to take photos of all of the courses. Thanks for the advice.

There has been much debate about taking pictures at V&A. Some say it's OK, some say it's rude. Personally, I would never take flash photos in the dining room. I wouldn't want to bother anyone else who is dining next to me & paid a premium for enjoying a nice quiet romantic dinner. Now, back at the chef's table, I take all the photos I want. Taking pictures without flash is fine... and even taking just a couple with flash I guess is OK... just not several flash photos of each course! That adds up to quite a few!

I never use a flash in signature restaurants. I don't need to anyway!

Victoria & Albert's Very Romantic

It is a wonderful way to celebrate an anniversary or birthday. They have the market on making you feel special for any occasion and even though a bit pricey ... it is definitely worth it. I think that I might take my daugter there for her 16th birthday if we go to Disney that year. Just got back from celebrating her 13th so got a couple of years to plan.

Fear not. The wine and beer selections that they offer (especially in the wine pairings, which also, on occasion, utilizes select beers) are first rate!

We try to eat here every trip. This will be our fifth meal at V&A and the first for DS who is 12. I had to get him black pants and jacket and he looks very mature...
of course he's almost as tall as me already!
He's very excited for Kobe beef and we have the menu up on our fridge!
