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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was good however the service was very slow not very good for a business lunch as 2 course took exactly 2 hours"
    dined on 19/08/2014
  • "I took a client to The bread Street Kitchen for a lunch appointment. The restaurant ambience was great. The service was superb and attentive. The choice and quality of the food was also very good. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to others."

  • "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."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "Nice informal atmosphere. A lot of work groups during the week. I'd definitely come back..."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "Our first visit. Tables rather close and alot of ambient noise but the food was good and the service very attentive. A particularly good restaurant for business lunches not a special occasion option. Worth a return visit."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "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"
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "Main course took an age to arrive as did drinks. The drinks waitress was delivering the right drinks to the wrong tables throughout. I had the pork belly - previously it has been top notch, this time it was quite average."
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "Good venue and food but on the pricey side. Had mixture of starters (salmon ceviche and duck salad) and maccaroni and cheese - very nice and would recommend to try it."
    dined on 11/08/2014
  • "Very slow service (we went at lunchtime). Smallish portions. Spacious contemporary interior with plenty of light."
    dined on 11/08/2014
  • "A perfect start of a lazy brunch on Sunday. Loved the sparkling appetising treat from Kent and the well prepared dishes. Music, friendly staff and good atmosphere added to the experience. Cheers!"
    dined on 10/08/2014
  • "A great experience awaits you at BSK. Excellent service from the second you arrive and the best food in town!!!"
    dined on 10/08/2014
  • "Another very good meal at this fun restaurant. Food is of a very good standard, prawns and chicken wings to start were great followed by excellent burger. Only slight criticism is that despite prices seeming cheap, end bill is always quite pricey - £60 per head even with £12 main courses."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Good solid restaurant, dependable, good quality food, unlikely to disappoint"
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Arrived at 8pm and we were struck with how loud the room was. We had trouble hearing each other. And the food took a very long time. They forgot our main courses, when we asked the waiter he went to check and a 'manager' came to speak to us but and despite apologising profusely, didn't offer any kind of discount or refund which would have been the right thing to do. It was so late by the time we finished our mains that we didn't have time to eat desert... Don't think we'll be visiting this restaurant again..."
    dined on 06/08/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our lunch here. The atmosphere was really was lovely - very relaxed and easy going. The décor adds to this with light, airy and very stylish surroundings. I would recommend this for business or pleasure"
    dined on 05/08/2014
  • "Went to this restaurant with friends for my husbands 40th. When booking, I advised that I was coeliac, and also that it was a birthday celebration. Upon arrival we were all impressed with the decor and we had a lovely table by the window. I was given my own gluten free menu, which was a lovely surprise & gave me confidence in ordering, knowing that I was properly catered for - even my own gf bread! Without being asked, my husbands pudding came decorated with birthday wishes, which was a nice touch. All the food was delicious and the service was friendly. I will definitely I rely be back"
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "We had some friends visiting from Luxembourg and hong kong and wanted to disprove the myth that English food is bland and boring and thought Bread Street would do this. However, the food was too salty and didn't excite like I expected from a restaurant owned by Gordon Ramsey. Also, our waitress gave such a cold face and was very pushy for us to order and not patient at all. When I asked her how she would recommend the signature burger, her response was - we only do medium and well done! Interesting to see that gordon Ramsey on his shows is very critical of poor service, yet in his own restaurant doesn't do anything about it! Overall, I was highly disappointed with my experience and won't be going back."
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "Good food, crowded, loud and decent service. Not the best place for romantic dinners but solid food at standard prices."
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "This is an excellent place to come for a pre work breakfast. The eggs Benedict was a excellent as always, and the service was efficient. I never have any concerns about rushing off for work if I am having breakfast here because I know they're efficient and understand that for a weekday breakfast at 8:15. Most people need a reasonably efficient turn around."
    dined on 31/07/2014
  • "I decided to give my daughter a special gift for her 13th birthday, and that experience was one of the best she ever had. We are from Italy, and I made our reservation online. We arrived at the Bread Street Kitchen more than one hour before the right time and everyone was really kind and helpful. The menu was great and we had a superb dinner. Service and atmosphere were great. Just one thing, due to the architecture of the restaurant, music seems to resound a little bit too much, but this is absolutely secondary."
    dined on 30/07/2014
  • "Had high expectations for this having been to Jamie Olivers restaurant Barbacoa, which was superb. The restaurant itself is very nice, with pleasant decor and a good ambience. However the food was pretty awful if truth be known. The use of salt is taken to an extreme, and I felt like I was eating onboard an 18th Century merchant ship. The scallops were perfectly cooked, but all I could taste was salt. The Lamb, and sides, were again drowned in salt. The waitress did feed this back and the chef acknowledged the issue. But essentially a reasonably expensive meal ruined. My tip if you go there, request on ordering that you want less salt, and I am sure you will have a great meal"
    dined on 30/07/2014
  • "Unfortunately, this time I had a very badly cooked steak. Too chewy and overcooked. When I told waiter about it, he promised to tell the manager about it but when the bill came out it was still there for the full price. I've been there many times before and never have had such poor experience (especially for the price you pay)."
    dined on 30/07/2014
  • "I object to paying a cover charge but otherwise it was a very nice evening. It's a great setting and the food and service was lovely and the bill was just the wrong side of good value without being offensive.....exactly as expected."
    dined on 29/07/2014
  • "We had a great experience with our 3 kids at the Bread Street Kitchen. The atmosphere, good and service was great."
    dined on 27/07/2014
  • "As per usual the service from the team at Breat Street was great. Nice choices on the menu for brunch and the food up to its usual fantastic standard."
    dined on 27/07/2014
  • "I thought it would be interesting to try a Gordon Ramsey restaurant. The restaurant looks nice enough but there is no one to greet you at the door. You have to ask the bar tender or walk upstairs to find your table. The staff aren't what you would expect at a quality restaurant either, they couldn't be bothered taking our orders and at the end didn't even ask if we wanted to see a dessert menu! The food was decent but not as good as I expected and definitely overpriced. They even charge you a 'cover charge' per person for sitting in the restaurant! It was never explained when I booked that there would be a charge and to me it's insane when the restaurant is empty on a Saturday night at 9pm. Overall would not return and would not recommend."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "Visited on Friday night for my sister's birthday, she had previously had a good experience but this time service was poor. We had no complaints with the food although I wouldn't say the food was anything special. However, we waited a long time to place our order and had to try desperately catch a waiter's eye every time we wanted something. it was a very frustrating experience trying to get any sort of service and we felt largely ignored which was odd considering the amount of staff. I had put on the booking that it was my sister's birthday which the maitre'd acknowledged when she showed us to the table but that was the only acknowledgement."
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "Great venue, food and service. An unforgettable memory, in a great atmosphere!"
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "Bread Street Kitchen offered me the chance to experience a world class chef menu at affordable (ish) prices, but beyond that, it was a waste of £70. We ordered the burger which sounded delicious and fries (chips). The fries were well seasoned but the burger meat was bland and it was a mess to eat. The service is what I take most issue with. Once our food was in front of us no one came to our table for another 35 minutes. No one asked how our meal was, no one asked if we needed anything else, no one cleared our dirty dishes. Our waitress made eye contact with me numerous times but never came over. It took my signaling the maître'd to get our plates taken. I would have had dessert but I was too annoyed to stay. Disappointing overall."
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "Food quality and service was really good. Had been there for lunch before, but this was the first time I went for breakfast Menu was really nice but overall the place was a bit too noisy - we had to lean in a few times to hear each other so not ideal for a business meal. However it might just have been a busy morning"
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "Having booked this of the back of a recommendation, i was apprehensive about it! But when we arrived till the moment we left, we could not fault it. Outstanding service, outstanding food and an ambience to match. A good meal was had by all!"
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "Good service and atmosphere. Just felt the food was a bit more Cafe Rouge than Gordon Ramsay. I did mention that to the staff without wanting to cause a fuss and they kindly insisted on taking the cost of my main off the meal."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "The restaurant is a lot bigger than I expected. I loved the open kitchen and the decor. The burger was outstanding and the waiting staff attentive. Good value considering the quality of the restaurant. I definitely recommend."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "Went for brunch. Amazing building, attentive staff. Usual Ramsey quality"
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "Food barely average although service good. There are better options close by."
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "Great food, wonderful ambience, I'm a big fan of this kind of place anyway, especially the décor. Plenty of friendly staff on hand, so someone was always able to spot if something was needed, or a drink topped up."
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "There is something about a cover charge which I object to. What is it for? It is the two rolls of bread which are put in front of you or to have the privilege of being given cutlery and crockery to eat with. Bread St Kitchen is not a cheap place so why do they have to apply a cover charge? Also, I know the name is becuase it is on Bread St, but why not use it to your advantage and have some amazing breads on the menu! Just a suggestion.... Moan over. The best thing about this place is that the service is super quick. Perfect if you want to have lunch within an hour. Avoid the wine. Poor selection. Screw top wine quality (ok, as you asked, I am referring to the Chapel Down Reserve)"
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "Fantastic ambience - lovely food - superb service - awful acoustics - but we will return some day."
