    Just walking in gave one a good feeling, with an understated Wow factor. The service was friendly and efficient. The food combined delectable combinations and was beautifully prepared with sensible portion sizes, and complimented by the wine. Came away feeling very satisfied with the whole experience which was infinitely repeatable. Well done to you all.

    We visited for lunch and had the Express Menu. All of the food for every course was excellent and the whole meal good value for money in lovely surroundings. It was a little quiet and not very "buzzy" but I guess a Monday lunch is not the liveliest session of the week! Well worth a visit.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my evening with my partner and friends, the ambience and food was good. However, I thought the service was poor,the waiter seemed to more interested in his own appearance than serving customers, in the end we had to ask another waiter to attend to our table, he was very helpful. Overall, my partner scored the evening 7/10 which is pretty good for him as he is very particular about eating out and customer service. This was my second time at this restaurant the atmosphere is very noisy and busy, it certainly not the place for quiet romantic evening or a place to take children. This a place to celebrate birthday etc...

    We gather with some friends for lunch and selected the 3 course menu during the week. The started was delicious. The main course that each of us ordered (2 of various options) wasn't good at all, bland and presentation wasn’t exciting. The sweet was good along with a nice coffee. The ambiance was fantastic, relax and fun. The people were friendly and polite and the service was perfect. Overall, it is a fantastic place to catch up with friends without the crowds.

    Went here on a lunch offer with an elderly person. Was buzzy with mainly tourists or shoppers dining there. The 3 course offer included wine & we were able to have a very decent champagne with the meal. The food was carefully presented & well thought out. It didn't try to be too adventurous. My fellow diner thoroughly enjoyed her meal & the atmosphere. Our main waiter was very attentive & helpful. However there were a few curt & officious members of the wait staff that really stood out as our main waiter was so professional & relaxed. They weren't rude, but abrupt & seemed rushed, so this was the only real dampner to the occasion. I would recommend it more for lunch as I think the room needs natural light to give it more ambience.

    This isn't the first time we've dined at this restaurant but it was the first time we've eaten since the new chef arrived in January. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and a good variety. Both my husband and I had the mushroom risotto to start which was the most flavoursome I've ever eaten. I had the duck for main course and my husband had the pork both were excellent. We both had lemon meringue for dessert. This was the nicest lunch I've had in a long time. The chef is excellent.

    A friend and I decided to go for a new experience..hence the 5th Floor of Harvey Nichols. As we approached the only real surprise of the evening was no other diners in the restaurant. The bar on the other hand was full! Not to worry we were greeted by lovely staff and the food was great. The deal we had included a glass of prosecco which was really nice. The restaurant is as impressive as all the pictures and I would definitely return again.

    Went there on a Thursday night for supper, it was surprisingly quiet. The reception was nice but the other staff was quite unfriendly. Anyway the food was nice, the place is quite spacious. Kinda modern style decorations, not really romantic, more like a place for friendly socials on a special day.

    Harvey Nichols Fifth Floor restaurant may be the venue of choice for ladies who shop and lunch but it is dead by the time the shop has closed. The menu sounds great, but is over-priced and tasteless in reality. Service was friendly and efficient, but staff resorted to ironing the tablecloths by 9 pm, with only 3 tables to serve! No wonder it was possible to book a table on Saturday night with only 24 hrs notice!

    Visited Harvey Nicks restaurant with my teenage daughter as a special treat. That's exactly what it was. Delicious beautifully presented food which was just mouthwatering. The service was just spot on. Gave us just the right time between courses. I have already told several people about this restaurant and will definitely be back myself. My first Top Table reservation will be hard to beat!

    I wanted a simple lunch with a girlfriend during a shopping jaunt. The restaurant was mostly empty, menu choices limited and overall feeling was a bit chilly and too pretentious. There is also a cafe and Burger & Lobster place on the 5th Floor or Harvey Nicholls which would probably have been a more enjoyable lunch for us.

    Maybe we picked the wrong night 30 Dec but with only 2 other tables it was dead. That said staff were great and so was the food! I think it is a better venue for a late lunch when all the shoppers are around and it has a buzz. Also maybe on a day which died not preceed New Year's Eve.

    Was really surprised at how nice this restaurant was, well decorated, really good service and food, all well executed. The appetizers were delicious and well balanced, and the entrees were also great. Nothing to complain about except that it took a LONG time to get the coffee (hence a star deduction on the service) after the meal but otherwise all well. And very kid friendly too - my kids were happy with the food options too.

    My husband, 3 year old and I thought we would celebrate my birthday with an afternoon tea at Harvey Nichols. Unfortunately is was not as lovely as we hoped. The room was half empty and yet we had to wait until they had re laid a table for us. The tea was incorrectly poured and the food was lovely, but it was more akin to a chocolate sweet trolley rather than a cream tea. They served a chocolate martini as well, but neither of us drink, so it was a little lost on us. The staff were friendly when they stopped to serve us, but considering the restaurant wasn't busy, they seemed to be in a rush!

    The fifth floor is a great restaurant, but it's proximity to the cocktail bar can spoil the ambiance rather as noise invades making it less relaxing than it otherwise might be. The food was of a high standard, but the service a little slow and my partner's main course (actually a second starter) initially was not what was ordered and had to go back.

    Having lost the charm and visual uniqueness with the brown beige make over...probably a few changes in the kitchen team...they may finally be on their way back... Getting rid of the over priced boring menus amongst some "can't be bothered" set menus with what seemed like every online website...of the last year ....with something more reasonable and different.. Had octopus & soft shell crab to start! Yum... Great after shopping ... Staff friendly and prompts... When I complained about the stingy portion of deliciously creamy coconut ice cream, another was presented! Not bad... Good to see some niceness back!

  • Good food, really poor service
    S100
    Dined on 16/11/2013
    Great food and interior design, but poor service. I made a reservation for 16-17 people, but we managed to be 21-22. The Restaurant manager and receptionist behaved terribly. The extra 5 friends turned up one by one. Each of them had to wait for a long time, before they were ALLOWED to sit down. Every time I had to ask the permission of the restaurant manager to have them sited like she was the customer and I was their servant. Such an attitude, I’ve never seen before. Maybe I would understand a bit more their behaviour, if they were really busy, but there were so many free tables. The service at the table was slow, not really used with big groups.

    Harvey Nichols has the cachet, a decent venue and an excellent French lady manager. But some of the food is not of a standard that you would find on HN's own shelves. The wines are excellent. Service is friendly but not classy; the UK problem, we do not respect the profession sufficiently.

    Enjoyed the food and the speedy service. A large table with drunken people close by spoiled the atmosphere. Not the restaurants fault, but perhaps they should try and organise big groups in a slightly more separate area so everyone can have the dinner they want.

    You would expect Harvey Nicks to be bustling with fashionistas and atmosphere. All sadly lacking and the scruffy, short wearing tourists did not help. The lunch menu was poor in its selection and the house wine terrible. So all in all not good, which is a shame as it used to be such fun.

    Had high expectations of Season, Harvey Nics new restaurant - I was not disappointed. We kicked started our lunch with beautiful summer cocktails, which were refreshing and perfect for the summer heat. For starter I opted for a mackeral veloute and caviar, the way it was presented was amazing and the flavours blended so well. For the mains I had cod, which just melted in my mouth, my partner had the seabream and saffron rice, which was equally esquisite in texture and flavour. Beautiful! The restaurant was decorated with summer trees, which was interesting, but worked well and made the room have a fresh feel. The staff were great too. Highly recommend!

    The lunch menu surprisingly affordable and pretty good value for money. Wines superb as was service. We had a lovely afternoon with friends to celebrate a little, and it did feel special. I only wish other patrons would think it as special and not turn up scruffy and eat their burgers with coats on! I wonder if the staff could gently do something about it.
