A word from Bread Street Kitchen
A lively and exciting new restaurant and bar from the team at Gordon Ramsay restaurants and the home to a relaxed dining experience set in a large warehouse style space, drawing inspiration from the East London aesthetic that surrounds it. At the heart of the Bread Street Kitchen offering is an informal approach to dining. Guests can meet, eat and drink from early morning until late at night. Underpinned by great service and a menu that includes a raw bar, a wood burning oven and dishes from the lively open kitchen. Guests will also be able to take in the incredible wine balcony which will stretch along the walls of the kitchen holding no less than 2000 bottles of wine. Open from breakfast the all day restaurant offers an extensive wine and bespoke cocktail list alongside a seasonal menu. Diners can enjoy a lazy sit down over a cider braised pork collar and king crab cocktail or grab a quick ceviche of salmon with grapefruit, jalapeño lime and coriander at the more relaxed Raw Bar.

    First visit and we all absolutely loved it. The service was excellent from the start and continued throughout. Food was lovely (although veggie options could be extended perhaps?) but everything ordered was superb, looked amazing and tasted delicious. Great wine, lovely ambience - friendly and busy - perfect. The live music was a tad too loud but we asked for it to be turned down a bit and it was - much better. Very impressed overall and would return.

    Food was amazing unfortunately the service was the worst we have had in a very long time! From the starters taking a long time to arrive. We ordered a second bottle of wine which never arrived. Glasses were taken from the table without staff asking if we were finished or if indeed we wanted another. It's a shame as I have been before and the whole experience was very different.

    This dinner was a test for a big event coming up next year, and both staff, restaurant and food passed all the tests. We will be back for sure. Sublime food, very warm and personal staff, that would do their absolute best to give you a wonderful visit. Menu had good variation. And specially the desserts were enjoyed and talked about at the table.

  • Food Good But Poor Service and 3x Incorrect Bills
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 14/11/2014
    I have enjoyed eating in all of GRH restaurants in London on numerous occasions and most in the US but I may just have lost my 'brand loyalty' Food was very good but when we received our bill we had been charged 8x cover charges when there were only 4 of us eating and the bill also contained around £60 drinks that were not ours. I marked the bill with the incorrect items and asked for it to be corrected. When the bill came back the waiter said that he had reduced it to 5x covers!!! and had removed the incorrect drinks. However half of the drinks were still on the bill, and after checking there were still only 4 of us! I asked for the bill to be corrected again and when it came back it appeared OK so I paid it. When I checked the next morning it still actually had 1 drink on it that wasn't ours (I had been drinking!) Although the staff apologised I got the distinct impression that it wasn't a one off occurrence An enjoyable evening spoilt by a charging 'error' - I hope the customers/staff who had £60 of free drinks enjoyed themselves more than we did Won't be back! - why would we with the huge number of London restaurants that clearly have much better customer service

    Dined on 11/11/2014
    Seems I am not the only one to notice the staff are not around & also do not notice you staring at them & trying to wave discreetly when they are. I was there hosting a business meal & only drinking water but after my first glass it took me more than 20mins to get the attention of a server to top up my glass. Food was slow to arrive & I think my burger sat on the side getting cold whilst my guests lamb chops were being cooked, we had been there nearly 45mins by then so I did not have time to send it back. Finally to top it off for me 2 mint teas & one espresso, again cold so must of sat on the side while tea was made. Not sure when I will chance my luck there again especially as there are now so many other great restaurants around St Pauls.

    I was very impressed with this restaurant, the food was incredible and the service was good. I think though it is slightly overpriced by 10 - 20% which will be because of the Gordon Ramsey name. Overall I would highly recommend this place for a special meal.

    Went here on Friday evening with a group of friends. Restaurant interior was nice and bustling, and the atmosphere was fun (if loud at times). Starters were good (beef brisket), and we found the mains/sides a bit hit and miss (though I highly recommend the mac & cheese - and I know my mac & cheese...). I was excited about ordering dessert, and waited... and waited... and waited for a full 15 minutes for the server to come take our dessert orders, which never happened. So finally we flagged her down for the bill and left. Overall a good experience but perhaps she should have had a smaller section to ensure better service?

    I took my boss for a business lunch - despite the obvious need for brisk service, the waiting staff could repeatedly not be found - ordering food, drinks and paying the bill were all slowed down excessively due to lack of presence. For a restaurant in the centre of the City this wasn't good enough. Otherwise food was good and it appeared quickly once the order was placed.

    The service was good on delivery of food, however, I did have to ask for some bread and for the water to be left on the table. There was no salt and pepper on the table and the pasta was just warm, otherwise the attention by staff was excellent. My biggest issue, however, was being charged £1 for something I knew nothing about plus cover charge AND service charge. I think that this is an unacceptable way of topping up the bill. I appreciate this restaurant caters for a lot of tourists and they can get away with it with them but charging all this to the business community who are a constant is not on.

    We attended for brunch on Sunday, service was brilliant food came quick and it tasted amazing, we also had dessert which was even more amazing! Best sundae I've had! It was pricey, £65 for 2 English breakfast 2 dessert and a drink each, they do add a cover charge and 12.5% service which I think is a bit ridiculous having both, I don't particularly get what the cover charge is for beside gaining more money, I would visit again and I would recommend it but I was unhappy with the extras added on

    I was looking for a trendy place to enjoy a lovely meal with a friend I hadn't met in over a year. I was a bit concerned that there was a time limit on our table-1.5hrs to catch up on almost everything, luckily they didn't throw us out - even though it was quite busy AND a Saturday! Very friendly staff Super location, so you can visit the Millennium Bridge and St. Paul's too! It wasn't super value for money, but it didn't break the bank. Also, my friend is a vegetarian and didn't have any choice really- there was only 1 main meal!

    4th time here and most disappointing. 3 good meals ie burgers ( they were great). Surf and turf was awful. Skinny steak sent back as overl-cooked, tiniest piece of crab. One good wine and one to be avoided (macon loche). Staff were very good and quick. 1st time we came here was when it had just opened and the head chef was super, came out and spoke to people and food was super. Not in a hurry to go back again.

    We were in London for a few days and wanted to do a few good restaurants, so I check out the menu before booking and we were happy with the choice. Nice menu, great value and easy to book a table through the website. When we arrived our table was ready and the buzz was just amazing. This place is certainly successful. the staff were excellent. the food was excellent and the atmosphere was fantastic. 2 adults, 2 kids, and the best juiciest burger ever, succulent chicken, great chips, and OMG the chocolate fondant was worth the wait, the waiter said 10-15 minutes for it and it arrived on minute 13. excellent. Have to say I'd be very happy to recommend this restaurant and I will definitely return on our next trip to London.

    We visited during a short break in London. We were on a bit of a tight schedule, but it was nothing too pressing. We ordered and the help from the Sommellier on choosing a white wine was great. We ordered mains and sat back and chatted. We didn't noticed it took a little bit for meals to arrive, as it was no problem. The food was great and we really enjoyed it all. The waitress asked if we could wait five minutes so they could apologise for the delay. It wasn't too log anyway though! They then delivered a desert platter for us. What a great service from the restaurant and in particular our waitress. She was great and I would have given a great review even wthout the desert platter. Thank you, we will be back when next in London.

    Dined on 26/10/2014
    Food, ambiance, location all great. Portions were filling and beautiful. Staff - Diabolical. What should have been a thoroughly enjoyable evening with friends was spoilt by our rude and unprofessional waitress. Despite several items being off the menu, she struggled then to input the items into the iPad/tablet, requiring us to tell her again. Inbetween courses we were left unattended for 35 minutes before we then asked for a dessert menu, followed by a further 20 minute wait for her to come back. IT WASNT BUSY??? The bill arrived to find items added to the bill we didn't order - it took 4 attempts for her to get the bill correct. We removed the 12.5% tip. Won't go back or recommend until Gordan apologies!!!

    The quality of ingredients was obvious and my starter of crispy duck salad was fabulous, for a non salad eater that is saying something. However, my veggie friend was disappointed with her main course which was somewhat dry and crisp cannelloni . Live music on Sunday was great and added to the atmosphere. Service was a little slow and at time we felt we had been forgotten but overall we still had a great time.
