  • Good service and nice food.

    Food was delicious but we felt that having only 2 choices for starter and main isn't a great selection. Having at least 3 choices for them would really have helped. Good value overall and great service though it was a little quiet at 6pm on a Saturday. Prosecco was delicious.

    We felt the waitress was too attentive and she kept interrupting our conversation. She also poured the wine too much and I felt she was trying to get us to buy another bottle. She came to our table at least 15 times!

    They brought pink chicken for my friend and wasn't cooked properly. My risotto with prawns for £14.95 had only 4 prawns and tasted just like cheap curry. It was obvious because they are busy they just serve you any food and expect you to leave early as possible. Overall food was poor and not worth the price, we won't be going back ther again

    We went to Hush for my friends 30th for lunch - the waiters gave us the most wonderful table as we were a large group and paid particular attention to the birthday girl - making sure she had a drink as soon as she arrived. They also helped plan a cake with a candle and didn't charge us for this. The attention to detail and service made this meal. Thank you!

    We booked here purely for its proximity to the British Musuem. On arrival we received a friendly welcome. We had the set lunch menu which included a glass of prosecco which was lovely. The food was good but there were only two choices on the set menu. The a la carte menu sounded good but again didn't look to be too many choices. Nice ambience as there seemed to be a buzz about it as it filled up.

    First time at hush, there were 8 of us for a business lunch, the steaks looked lovely, I had duck salad and chips, very nice, bit too much food - but it was lovely, very reasonably priced, only criticism was it was very noisy in there, waitress really looked after us, two of the people on our table had deserts, they looked very delicious! Will definitely return, maybe in a smaller group

    The interior, particularly if you seat in a booth, is tasteful & very comfortable. If you order from the set menu, it is extremely good value; I had 3 courses & a drink for £20.50, however, there is only a choice of two so this is very limited. My friends ordered from the usual menu and paid a much higher price for small portions & sides are extra. The service wasn't very good & yet they still add 12.5% service charge!

    This restaurant was just perfect for a pre theatre dinner. The was lovely, service was spot on. The man who served us even reminded us of the time and showed us out of the restaurant and which way to head for the under ground. I couldn't fault this place at all.

  • Best burger in town

    I booked through opentable looking specifically for a deal but without compromising on quality. Heard they had the best burgers in town & they certainly lived up to that reputation, it's just a shame the service was a bit lacking & the deal that we booked - 30% off our food bill! was not recognised & we had to really fight to get! (We got it in the end) However food & ambiance good & service when we did get their attention was friendly, I would definitely go back for that burger though!

    We were greeted to the restaurant with slippers and our pick of tables. Our coffees were brought quickly and brunch was amazing. We were there for a few hours having a catch up and although they got quite busy they didn't bother us once to leave so they could have our table! Lovely staff and great food, will definitely be back again.

    Thursday night dinner with a friend. 4 dishes between us - not bad. Pulled pork burger was passable, the pork had too much sauce but the bun was very nice. Beef burger with pulled pork add-on was nice and fat but the pulled pork add on was tiny. Both came with a side salad - it was so small it looked mean. Roasted vegetables with quinoa were nice and nicely balanced with goats cheese. Squid starter was not nice. Very very oily and undercooked. With the opentable discount it was Ok, however I would never pay full price. Our waitress was not particularly friendly or nice. The house wine is good.

    I think this restaurant was quiet because of its location which is a shame as the food, ambience and service were all very good. I had the steak and lobster offer and they were both delicious. My friend had the half chicken and she cleared her plate. The service was efficient and friendly and smiley. Just as it should be. We sat outside and it was surprisingly pleasant as the restaurant is on a busy street. The bushes in pots provide a nice low level screen which almost made it feel like you were sitting in a garden. Inside there weren't too many table occupied but it was very nicely lit and laid ready. The facilities were also very clean and odour free! I would recommend this place.

    This is my second visit to the Hush,this little restaurant in Holborn very close my office is set to become a favorite place to eat, had a great meal this time. Service was excellent, we were served by an Asian guy with Spec, probably the best waiter EVER!!! No doubt, this guy will let you feel like a king or queen in that restaurant. Lobster Roll was really good and the Prawn Risotto was the best I have ever tasted: just the right degree of aroma and the right amount of curry sauce perfectly balanced. We will be back soon.

    Really enjoyed my Saturday lunch with friends at Hush with an opentable 50% discount off food. Restaurant wasn't very busy as not in the heart of the West End, however I imagine it would be busy during the week with city workers. A small menu but with some really good food and I enjoyed the interesting soft drinks they had (I had Jasmine tea with strawberry & elderflower). You could sit outside but it was quite hot so looked cooler inside. I thought we had fantastic service, we had a great meal but without the 50% discount it might have been a bit pricey. Interested to try the other branches at St Pauls & Mayfair.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
