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.

    We are visiting from Canada and wanted to try a Ramseys restaurant. The service and knowledge of the staff/servers was excellent. Service speed and attention to customers was also excellent. Appetizers/starters were exceptional - loved the scallops! Main course dishes were prepared perfectly. We were expecting the menu to be more complicated but menu was more simple dishes with enough flair to make them upscale. Was a very good dining experience.

    Had team breakfast and was not as as good as expected (or prev visit). Tea was not hot enough, none of the 4 separate pots we ordered since only one small cup size in each! Food options were good though my colleague would have preferred to have the option of smoked / unsmoked bacon. Huge bowl of yoghurt came with tiny pot of granola. Little but important things. Previous visit everything just seemed better, whereas this time it did not meet my expectations.

  • I wonder what Gordon would say
    Anonymous
    Dined on 23/9/2014
    This was a business lunch and I was hoping to impress with my choice of restaurant. Our party of 7 were placed in direct sunlight (no blinds) by the window and I had to ask for butter with the bread twice and it took 20 minutes to arrive. I had to call the waitress to take our food order as nobody was paying us any attention at all. The food was average and my fish carpaccio starter was awful, stringy and too thick in places swimming in liquid with tasteless green dollops. My duck salad for main was no better, too much sticky sauce and hardly any green leaves. The waitress did not smile once and never asked if everything was ok. It just shows Gordon's name above the door means nothing, poor value for money at £47 per head without wine.

    The food was great. Perfectly cooked, tasted fabulous and fresh. Everything was served hot and perfectly seasoned. Only issue was the seat. It was next to a corner seat and I kept having to move my chair over for the wait staff to serve the corner table. They made every effort to not hit my chair which was appreciated. I would have preferred they move the tables further apart as there was plenty of room... Or they could have sat us at a different table. There was plenty of space.

    I am a fan of bread street kitchen having dined for breakfast lunch and dinner. Mainly for business due to proximity to my office however the food is really good. The servce needs improvement and is too slow and disjointed which problematic in a group. A set menu would attract more business users but overall I do recommend.

    The Alibi cocktail was amazing. We then sat for dinner, sommelier was great recommending a lovely bottle of red wine. We both had the lamb neck which was great, the portion was large. Sides of mash potato and vegetables. The dessert however was the only disappointment, the sticky toffee budding was more like a hard cold cake, which I did not like at all. It was overall £70 a head for two people and if I'm spending that much again I would probably go elsewhere.

    Great food, great service and great atmosphere! We were a group of seven people on our way to the theatre, and it was great that we could stop by for a quick meal. And the food was outstanding, so was the wine and the service was impecable. We never needed to ask for anything, the waiters were there already. And they were very polite. The interior of the restaurant was really cool! I will defenitely come back on my next trip to London.

    Good value for money, friendly staff and management. The sommelier was outstanding too. We wanted to change the table as the first one was too close to the kitchen. 2 minutes later they offered us a table at the window! As I am from abroad, I believe this is rather uncommon in a trendy London Restaurant. Thanks for a fantastic evening at Bread Street Restaurant!!

    Had a table booked for 10 people in September in Bread Street Kitchen. Other than sitting a little too close to the band that were playing, which meant having to talk quite loudly, for the most part this meal was good. The food was very good and can't fault anything that we were served on that day. The bit that let the meal down was the service. We waiting for long periods of time for orders to be taken, drinks to be served, desserts to be offered, etc. This for a restaurant that was only half full seems a little odd. One of our drinks we had to ask for 3 times before arrived and this was after all the other drinks had been delivered, horseradish seemed a problem to find and 30 min waits between courses was not good.

    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

    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.
