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.

    I thought the food was very poor for a gordon Ramsey restaurant. I have breen to maze aswell which was excellent. Gordon should take a look at this restaurant instead of making tv programmes about the state of other peoples

    Gordon Ramsay has a restaurant for every occasion but the common element is quality and service. Bread Street Kitchen is a casual restaurant with a sophisticated menu in a hip industrial like space. Great food and great service. Soup and salad were fresh and delicious. Carpaccio was superb. Our server was efficient, professional, and attentive. This was not my first visit and will not be the last.

    Your let down is the service. Drinks take too long to arrive, there does not seem to be any communication between your staff. I ordered a drink, waited 10 minutes just to be asked what I would like to drink again - when I repeat my order the waiter goes "oh yeah, I see that now, have you not received that yet?" - yeah sure, I hid it under the table! Food outstanding, nice selection on the menu, there is something for all tastes.

    Attended the restaurant on a Saturday night and it was lively with a very good atmosphere. The service was also excellent. Would have given an even better review had we been sat deeper in the restaurant. It felt a bit as though we were out on a limb closer to the entrance whereas it seemed better the further in you are seated. That would be my only complaint, otherwise I couldn't fault it and would definitely visit again. I attended with a friend but there were couples and groups so it does cater for all party types.

    It's always a good sign when the owner is eating in house and we were pleasantly surprised to see gordon ramsay and his family eating a few tables away from us. Celebrity spotting aside, food was very good from an extensive menu and wine also excellent if somewhat overpriced. The dining room definitely is great for groups or even a cheeky date. My only gripe is the slightly inconsistent service (dishes coming out at different times, the table next to is being told about specials whilst we weren't) and the fact that they charge you £2 per cover? Would go again but maybe not in a rush

    Dined on 31/8/2014
    We had really been looking forward to our visit to Bread Street Kitchen and it was a complete disappointment. We were given a good window table and because it was a celebration, ordered champagne. As we sat and looked around the vast, pastiche interior we questioned why the designers had gone this rather cliched 'themed pub' route. When we came to order, the dish I really wanted was unavailable... so why was it on the menu? The alternative I chose, a 'Pizzetta' was unacceptable as In reality it was a pizza, which I could have anywhere! Even my starter, a Salmon Ceviche was rather bland. My partner's plaice was overwhelmed by the way it was cooked and the presentation of all our dishes was really poor. Sadly this was a bad experience.

    We didn't like it. We couldn't read the menu as there was not enough light. The service was very long and the room was cold. The food had nothing to be remembered for. On the other side the staff was very kind and tried to find us a warmer place with more light. Unfortunately it didn't make any difference.

    Food was all fairly good. Rigatoni appetizer was tasty but way under cooked. Bread served was almost impossible to chew. This is our second visit in a few years. Pretty sure Gordon wouldn't have been thrilled with that night's meal either.

    Went here on a dry run with one client. Was very good. It can be a foodie menu, but there is a burger choice. It can be expensive depending on what you have, but you can get some great cheaper options. So I LOVE the fact there is finally a place with CHOICE. The waiters, when they get hired, have to try all the various foods. So the guy we had, 2 weeks on the job, was excited to tell us his favourites. And he wasn't wrong... Scallops for starter - top notch. bacon and thinly sliced apple. Awesome. Then I had duck breast, excellent. My client didn't pick so well but all in all great. Desert also was perfect. But went there a second time, group of 6, the food was still excellent, BUT WHATS WITH THE FRUIT FLIES. They had an issue here

    This restaurant is very average. The food is not of the standard that one might expect at a Gordon Ramsay establishment. It is more fast food, and the quality nothing compared to many eateries in the vicinity. The big issue is the noise. For a venue in the business district, the noise levels were terrible and it was difficult to hear your co-diner speak.

    Went here while on holidays in London. Was counting down the weeks with excitement of getting to experience food from one of my favourite chefs restaurants. I must say I have next been so disappointed in my life. So much so that I left most of my main. Over cooked roast potatoes (literally rock hard). The beef was mainly fat which couldn't be eaten and so little gravy they may as well have not bothered with it. £2.50 for water as well as £2 power person table charge and 12.5% service charge. Basically I feel completely robbed. Would not recommend and definitely would not go back. Paid a total of £120 and got same meal the following night for £30 in a local pub. Way nicer, tastier and more enjoyable.

    A friend of mine highly recommended Bread Street Kitchen and I must say he was really right. Having made online dinner reservations we were well-received. We are a family of two adults and three children and we were well looked after. The staff was very friendly and professional and the food was delicious, from starter to dessert. The restaurant has a beautiful setting and a great buzz and atmosphere. It is a place to come back to!

    When I go to a Ramsay restaurant I already know I'll be paying through the nose. I also know service will be slick food will be good. Fair enough so far. However to see a £2 cover charger per person, plus 2.50 for bottled water and then add an "optional" 12.5% service charge has me leaving the place thinking about the rip off prices, rather than the dining experience.

    Good to experience once... We weren't happy with the cover charge of £2/person plus 12.5% gratuity (didn't really understand why the cover charge?) and £8 fee for water which clearly came out of a tap after we were asked if we wanted water. Food was good, but not many vegetarian options for part of our party who felt that for the value, it wasn't really worth the vegetarian dishes available. Felt that something like duck (for the non-veggies) was too expensive at £25. Staff were really nice. Loved the vibe/decor of the place. Would return just to visit downstairs bar as the location was great and it was a beautiful bar area.

    Went here for a team lunch on Friday. Burgers went down well with colleagues. Grey mullet also tasty. Attitude of the (very rushed) serving staff was not always as we would expect - snapping at a colleague who requested bread - but improved as the meal went on. Chocolate fondant is a definite favourite. The restaurant is very busy at lunchtimes and can be extremely noisy, so probably not the place if you want to relax.

    The best thing about this restaurant was the ambiance. I liked the exposed brick, high ceilings, and dim lights. The tables are also very spread out, giving you and your party a lot of privacy. It was not very noisy upstairs in the main restaurant either. The food was good, but for a Gordon Ramsay restaurant I would have expected better. It was also slightly pricey for the average food (around £50 per head with appetizer, main meal and wine). It wasn't spectacular but I would still recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner with friends. Another note: The servers were nice and attentive, but no one welcomes you to your table from downstairs. The card machine also broke during our visit, which was very inconvenient.

    Having enjoyed various 'top' restaurants in London this is the best - the quality of the food is as you would expect (excellent) and the service was superb (attentive but not over the top, excellent timing) therefore making this my new favourite venue. Starters are slightly more expensive than expected but the mains were good value. Six adults with starters, mains, coffees and two bottles of wine worked out at c£60 per head which for the standards I thought was spot on. Only two criticisms - firstly there was an additional £2 per person to eat in the evening on top of the service charge (why - just irritating) and two, the wine list was almost too extensive with limited choices at the medium/bottom end of pricing. Overall, excellent
