Diner Reviews
  • "Second trip for dinner and just as good. The waiter did forget about my creamed spinach but atleast hadn't charged for it. Aside from that definitely worth going back."
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "I met a group of friends here for lunch and we all opted for the set menu which was good value. The food was tasty albeit not very exciting, I left feeling like I could have eaten more even though I had the 3 course set menu! It was a Saturday so not very busy, as it's near the City."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "Had a business lunch here last week, and overall it's a great option if you're in the Holborn area: attentive service, a decent lunch menu and drinks list. The only down-side was that if they had air-con it was either broken or inadequate, to the extent that my guests and I were uncomfortably warm by the end of the meal and left sooner than we otherwise would have. Still, it's a good venue with good food, and had it been a cooler day I'd have scored it 4 stars for ambience as well. Will return soon if they fix the air-con, not so soon otherwise."

  • "Service was friendly and attentive. Food was not so good. Crab starter did not taste of crab. Steaks were tough, overcooked and full of gristle. Very disappointing overall, but the 50% discount was some compensation."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "Went there for a quick business lunch, for the first time. Starter was an extremely salty calamari which I sent back to the chef and main course was a crispy duck salad which was spoilt by over use of sticky sweet hoisin sauce. I had to eat it as I was starving! The waitress was sweet and apologetic and I have to commend her patience..wish i knew her name. I won't be going back."

  • "Best chopped salad I've ever had. Loads of white meat chicken, crunchy fresh vegetables, perfect vinegarette...yum."
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "Had some character unlike other bland chains in the area. Good food too."
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "Rather disappointed overall with our visit to Hush Brasserie. Staff are pleasant, but the service is woeful - some serious training is needed here. Despite the restaurant being almost entirely empty, 3 of us were squeezed in a far corner at a table for 2. We moved eventually. Getting any attention from staff (to order, to get the bill etc) was difficult, though service was not unfriendly. Food was good but turned up within minutes of being ordered (i.e. had been sitting around) and was overpriced. Aspen Fries sounded nicer than they were - they just had a little grated parmesan on top & a tiny bit of black truffle. We were there for over 90 minutes and only had one course (after bread & olives). Excellent Tomato Juice though."

  • "Pancakes were dry. However waitress was abit miserable"
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Met for a business lunch, good atmosphere and busy. Service was friendly but could have been a bit quicker with bill as lunch time is limited. Food was lovely - recommend the roast cod. Prices ok - there are set menus that are very reasonable. Would go again."
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "It would be expensive without the offer, but all the food was well cooked and tasty and service was good. It's very busy in the day but the area is dead at night so there is little ambience, but would recommend."
    dined on 18/06/2014
  • "All I need to say is this is the best burger I have ever tasted !! After trying several of the new popular burger joints in London, Hush Hamburger still top of my list. Great quality meat, wonderfully simple and good burgers generally, combined with great service and atmosphere is a winner. will definitely come back.."
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "Lunch was quick but didn't taste that nice and it was expensive for what is offered"
    dined on 04/06/2014
  • "Took clients to Hush Brasserie for an informal lunch. The service was really good and the food also impressive: we nearly all had either the fish finger sandwich or the pulled pork brioche bun and they were both really good. Also the Jasmine Iced Tea was a popular choice and looked as impressive as it tasted! All in all it was a well paced (quick, but not rushed) lunch, we had a really good table too. Will definitely be back!"
    dined on 04/06/2014
  • "We catch up annually with friends who visit from Canada. Hush was a convenient place to meet up and chat. The wine and service was excellent, and the food pretty good. We were moved to a more cosy booth, which was thoughtful, and kept topped up with water. However the background music was quite loud, and at times made conversation difficult. We found the restaurant staff helpful and welcoming and appreciated their attention."
    dined on 03/06/2014
  • "We came early on a Saturday night for a pre comedy show meal. Service was outstanding and the food and cocktails were excellent. We had a Caesar salad, tiger prawn salad, burger and sorbet, Couple this with a 50% off food deal and you cannot go wrong. In fact, we agreed that if the offer wasn't on, we'd happily pay full price."
    dined on 31/05/2014
  • "Good food (try the aspen fries) and good experience in general. Would recommend."
    dined on 14/05/2014
  • "We have eaten here before so expected better. Firstly the menu advertised on here was not what we we offered, being told by a rather offhand waitress "that probably starts on Wednesday". I had the ham hock salad with pickled mushrooms. The mushrooms were nice but the ham was low quality and the salad inedible as it was so oily. My main, macaroni cheese with "crispy bacon" was bland and boring with a few tiny bits of bacon within... this used to be a gorgeous dish! My friends choices (fish fingers and burger) were better."
    dined on 10/05/2014
  • "Really enjoyed the burgers, just good all round grub."
    dined on 08/05/2014
  • "Exceptional service! Good food. Pleasant ambient. Central location. The only problem is that on Saturday, it's very quiet and the kitchen closes at 9pm. "
    dined on 03/05/2014
  • "I'd had afternoon tea at the Hush Brasserie in Mayfair before which was lovely. The Holborn Brasserie is beautifully decorated also but was rather quiet on a Friday night. The food was good quality however and enjoyed by myself and my friends, and the service was attentive also."
    dined on 02/05/2014
  • "The service was friendly and efficient. Food came within minutes of ordering. Everyone enjoyed what they ate. The only negative would be the price - £23 for half a chicken, some brocolli and an ice tea with 12.5% service is steep even in central London. "
    dined on 29/04/2014
  • "This is what I call an average restaurant - food is ok but nothing special. Service was very good."
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "I have been to this restaurant twice now and on both occasions the service has been bad. For ordering food the staff are reasonable paying enough attention to each table but once that is over and you try to order another drink or ask for the bill things become increasingly difficult. If you order a simple cocktail it arrives 10-15 mins later and trying to get the bill at the end of the night is near on impossible as the staff seem to do all they physically can to avoid eye contact and to stay out of sight. Nice food but after these two experiences I would never go back. "
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "Took dad for birthday lunch before trip to the British Museum. Great service, lovely food and all round very nice. Almost too quiet on a Saturday lunchtime though. Definitely visit again, excellent value with top table deal."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "Hush is a 2 minute walk from Holborn station, yet feels quite secluded. We visited on Saturday afternoon and although there were other diners, it felt very peaceful and relaxed. The staff are attentive - perhaps upselling a little too hard, but all very polite. Food arrived in good time and was to a high standard. Their burger is quite high on my list of favourites and the plaice meuniere was absolutely delicious. My only (weak) criticism is that the doors on the bathroom stalls are made of frosted glass which, aesthetically, look modern and stylish, yet from inside, can feel a little bit exposed. I will be visiting again - food, service and ambience were all impressive."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Ate here for a 'quick' business lunch and had to wait 40minutes for our food. Once it arrived, it was all very lovely. I have eaten here before 2 or 3 times before and never had such a delay, so hopefully a one off."
    dined on 27/03/2014
  • "Always struggling for somewhere to go for a working/business lunch around the Holborn area. This is a great find - convenient location, great food, excellent service. Will be back."
    dined on 19/03/2014
  • "Went on a Tuesday evening with my fiancee. It was steak and lobster night. We both had that and enjoyed it very much. Great value. Excellent service. Good wine selection."
    dined on 18/03/2014
  • "Had an enjoyable early dinner here on a Friday evening. It was fairly quiet, the staff were very attentive and the food was delicious. We would go back but there are other places we want to try in Holborn first..."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "... Now, you can't argue with that. Especially when the steak is so delicious and is cooked perfectly. My friend and I were catching up in London having not seen each other for a few weeks so it was important that I found just the right place that we'd both enjoy. Hush was perfect. The staff we're so helpful and attentive. We weren’t happy with the table we were given at first so the waiter moved us to a booth without a fuss. The food was delicious and the portions plentiful My friend had the burger and the pancake and I had the steak and lobster followed by the Neal’s Yard cheese. I would highly recommend this delightful little brasserie."
    dined on 11/03/2014
  • "My friends and I met here at 5:45 for an early dinner before going to a theatre show on Saturday. We told the wait staff we would need to leave by 7:15 and they seemed on board with the plan. Unfortunately our table was in the back corner of the restaurant behind a pillar and we just seemed to get forgotten about. We ordered a round of drinks which never came, we were offered condiments with our meal which never arrived and I had to get up to ask them to bring the second course as we were unable to get their attention. The same happened when it came time to pay the bill, I ended up having to go up to the counter to get any service. The venue itself was very nice in appearance but The food was nothing to write home about."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "This is a smart and inviting restaurant, the staff were very friendly. The main course menu seemed limited and I felt it was overpriced for what we got. The drinks orders were very slow; our choice of dessert wine was not in stock and the only other choice was significantly more expensive. These issues did not spoil an enjoyable evening but I do not expect to visit this restaurant again."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "Menu looked just like cafe rouge. Squid starter was bland & caked in batter-couldn't taste the salt and pepper seasoning. The macaroni cheese was average at a push. I was expecting something a little better than a ready-meal equivalent for £9.95. Well, that was when it finally arrived after an order mix-up but to be fair the staff were very good and took it off the bill. The only good thing about Hush was it was quiet on a Friday night so we got a last minute table. We wouldn't go there again."
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "I didn't even get 30 percent off that was mentioned on the website"
    dined on 06/03/2014
  • "Great little place - lots of variety and interesting dishes to try out"
    dined on 05/03/2014
  • "The food was good as ever, and it was nice to be in there when it was quieter. When I went at Christmas I did feel a bit cramped. The wine spritzers are nice, and the choice of soft drinks are better than most. Will be going back"
    dined on 05/03/2014
  • "My second visit here. Great if you want time to chat and catch up, plus the food is good and the cocktails are lovely. Service is good although as before a little bit slow, so don't visit if you're in a hurry, but fine for us as it gave us time to chat. I had the lemon sole goujons to start, these were lovely, and the sausage and mash is gorgeous. My partner had the burger and both said it was very good and a lot more filling than it looks. All in all a good visit and good value with the TT offer."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "went Pre Theatre on my sons 16th staff and food were excellent, its always difficult with teenagers to find the right balance of trendy but not stuffy, Hush is the perfect balance"
    dined on 27/02/2014
  • "Nice Venue, nice starters, mains were ok, perhaps over priced if paying full price, but on a deal worth a visit for the Fish Starters, especially the crab salad."
