    Hassle free dining; decent food although few options for the vegetarian in our party. Reasonable wine list at a variety of prices to suit all budgets.

    I had been to 86 when previously when the bar was downstairs but had not dined. This time, four of us booked for dinner and cocktails to celebrate a birthday. The menu is not overcomplicated but consists of quality ingredients cooked well. Even sides were seasoned and presented well. We had ribeye x 2 and fish x 2 and everyone was happy. This isn't fine dining but it is great food. The cocktail menu is extensive and Cucumber Martinis were the star of the show. The service was excellent. Overall, 86 walks a fine line that most SW3 restaurants choose to cross - great food rather than fine dining, civilised, fun and relaxing ambience rather than pretentious and prices that arent cheap but are worth the quality. Great night out.

    I love the menu at 86. The dishes are creative and well-presented. I had the "fish in a bag" - delicious! The service was great, but I think the ambience was slightly lacking.

    canuckfoodieVIP
    Dined on 11/5/2013
    The food was really good, but Eighty Six is more of a lounge than a restaurant or gastropub, with pictures of half-naked women on the walls, and clubby kind of lounge music playing. It looks like a cross between a gastropub and restaurant but totally feels like a lounge for people who want to impress other people. Not a place to go if you want a relaxing meal.

    Great place to pick up some ambience and look at people. Decent food. Impossible to talk since music is too loud. But it is good, the music...Nice to get moving for the nightlife. Bar looks like a nice stop too.

    The Tue lobster was fine as such however there was no salade/greens as entree or side dish. Also the dining room was COLD (speaking of March)! But your can find a seat on a lovely coach, the service was atttent and quick, so in the end we had a lovely dinner for two.

  • Lobster dinner
    Lovefood
    Dined on 12/2/2013
    Went there on a Tuesday which happened to be Lobster day so the menu was limited to lobster, steak or surf and turf. The normal menu wasn't available and that was a little bit annoying. Had the lobster which was nice, friends had surf and turf and steak, and they said the meat was good. Chips were good but a little bit too salty for some people. Nice decor and service was ok.

    86 is a great date location. Lowly lit and very chilled. Great food. Reviews regarding portion sizes are unfounded. The portions are perfectly satisfactory. Cocktails are obviously excellent. Staff very pleasant. £98 (including service charge) for two starters, two mains, 4 cocktails. Will be revisiting.

    Be aware: Tuesday = lobster night here! I went recently and got a steak (only non-lobster thing on the menu for mains) and found it was pretty average (quite chewy, not that flavoursome). However, I've eaten here previously with a normal menu and it was much better. I would say though that the main assets of this place are the ambience and buzz: it has a lovely warm, cozy feel in the restaurant, and a great bar downstairs. The restaurant is nice as well, but I wouldn't say you would come here for the food alone.

    I took my husband here for dinner on a Saturday night to celebrate his Birthday. I had a Living Social voucher for a 2 course meal with champagne, so it was excellent value. The door staff were very welcoming and the friendly lady at the door showed us to the very cool dining room above the bar. Our waiter was prompt and also very nice. We were surprised by a lovely amuse bouche before our starters. As we had a voucher our menu had 3 options per course rather than the normal a la carte menu which had perhaps 7/8, but all options sounded great. My husband had venison carpaccio and I had salmon fillet both of which were very good. The main courses we chose were the duck burger and skate wing. Again, they were creative dishes and tasted great.

    Whilst the food was of good quality and beautifully displayed, there was simply too little of it. Nice but limited winelist and limited choice by the glass. We were served a nice looking amuse of foie gras which I can not eat. The beef also came with foie grass which made me think it was all slightly pretentious. The octopus carpaccio (nice, but barely there) starter followed by a tiny piece of skate just didn't fill me up. It took forever for our (very nice) bread to arrive (eventually it came with our starter, the 2nd order of bread never arrived at all). When the rather substantial bill arrived, I was sure this just isn't the place for me. The food is good, but it is just not worth that much money if you have to have a burger afterwards.

    Eighty-Six had a fantastic menu, a wide choice of delicious foods. I had the pan-seared Sea Bass which was incredible. I also had one of the best puddings I have ever had. The service was great, a charming waiter and I was surprised at how reasonable the bill was bearing in mind how delicious the food was. The vibe is great in there and we all enjoyed some after dinner drinks in the very cool bar downstairs. I will be returning!

    Exotic - probably too exotic for some - food which many might find too much. A fun place. Would probably go back but to enjoy the bar scene rather than the restaurant alone. The restaurant does, though, provide a very interesting vantage point for the action below.

    Eighty-Six has a great restaurant but I think it is more noteable for it's bar which is loud and vibrant downstairs. The restaurant upstairs overlooks the bar so can be pretty noisy. The food was really good and the wine list had a good selection. The waiter was friendly too. I would recommend this place to a group of friends who wanted a lively night out and the decor is very cool and kitsch. I would thoroughly recommend the cocktails at the bar too and the place is full of 'beautiful' people...!!
