    The food was great and so was the ambience but the rude waiter absolutely ruined the whole package. He only took drink orders for half the table before walking off, we quite often had to get up to get him and even then he would take a good 5 minutes to walk over even though he was just standing doing nothing.

    My husband and I upgraded to the twelve course tasting menu with matching wines which was the mistake. The ambience was a little flat for a Thursday night and although not very busy, we were rushed through each course with no explanation on the wines complimenting each dish. I have had better experiences here but in truth, lack lustre of late - last time my friend and I were pushed into a corner and forgotten about to make way for a group of gaggling models so maybe it's time to draw a line and find a place that treats it's customers better.

    We booked dinner here as a birthday treat. When we didn't order wine straight away (we had a glass of champagne as part of our deal) but asked to maybe have one later the waiter sulked & never throughout the whole dinner checked whether we wanted another drink (wine, water or even coffee). Mid-meal I noticed that chewing gum left on the underside of the chair had ruined my new jeans - no apology was made, the chair not exchanged, no offer to pay for the cleaner or even a free coffee. The food was nice especially the sea bass& the pudding, other were courses good but not exciting. We had to ask twice for the bill but still had to wait 20min before we received it despite it not being that busy. Shame as previous reviews looked so promising.

    Friday night girlie gathering at DTRTKT was perfect! We are all 30-something and know what we like, and this was it! The place was cool without being pretentious, the service was enthusiastic and food delicious. Opentable's 12 course menu for £40 inc champers was a great deal, although we struggled to eat it all! It would have been great to check out the club afterwards but it was still picking up when we left at 10:45 so maybe next time. We will definitely be back!

    Two of us had a 12 course taster menu which was quite filling and enjoyable. While not everything in the menu was to my taste I could not fault it. The staff were attentive while one waiter was overly attentive and I had to stop plates and glasses being taken before we finished. He was young and maybe new but did not spoil the night. I would definitely go back again.

    Wild sea bass is a rarity, its almost always farmed nowadays. The wild is more flavoursome and slightly pink in colour. Asparagus was perfectly cooked and went well with a warm cheesy dip. The pulled pork dish was very tender meat. Wines were quite refined even at the starter level. The fruit dessert contained an unusual surprise.

  • Tour de force of a Taster Menu
    ACDCVIP
    Dined on 22/5/2014
    We came here for pre-theatre dining and opted for the Taster Menu which in retrospect was ambitious given the time constraint. One not only needs the time to do it justice but also the appetite because it possibly has the most food content of any Taster menu we've come across with something like 15 courses (including two desserts). The ingredients are fresh and most are prepared simply to enhance their natural flavour. The standout item is the Talisker Steak which is melt in the mouth tender. Ambience is dark & funky so depends upon your taste and we think that the servers should ask about allergies etc because there is a lot of seafood in the menu. We'll definitely try this place again and come with more time and appetite.

    I went last year just after the restaurant had launched......it had rave reviews and decided to go with a friend - the experience was outstanding. Decided to rebook again this year - It was terrible to say the least! My friend and I suffered terrible stomach pains from the Tuna steak, the quality of the food was not to standard and the atmosphere in the restaurant was somewhat lacking. Certainly never going back....shame as you don't get many upmarket restaurants / club venues in London

    Great food, great venue, great location, great service, great value! Beautifully designed, my one tiny grumble was that there's nowhere to put your handbag when you wash your hands, except the floor. Service was friendly, efficient and informative. Food was surprisingly generous for the price and on the whole it was very flavoursome and balanced. My favourite dishes were the beef cheeks and gnocchi and the dessert which was to die for although possibly too sweet for some peoples taste. I'd definitely return to this trendy venue but would like to try the club as well next time.

    Great food. Service aaas ok - we had to move our table along the side of the wall three times to accommodate a group booking. Me and my partner went for pre-theatre and was really good. I would go again but next time with a group of us and probably dining a bit later so to truly get the experience.

    My husband and I went for the £25 - 8 course + Bellini pre-theatre menu. Even at 6pm sitting, you do have to get through menu at quite a pace to make it in time for a 7.30pm show, so, although courses are brought together, you do not have time to languish over a glass of wine with them too. The top table deal was extraordinarily good value. We ate charcuterie, king prawns, fish cake, gnocchi in truffle oil, yellow fin tuna, the softest, richest beef cheek I have ever had. It just flaked off the fork. Everything we ate was delicious and the portion size very generous. The pasta in truffle oil was one of best tasting foods have had in life! The venue is very stylish, more of a club than a restaurant though.

  • Good food, poor concept
    rationaldiner
    Dined on 29/3/2014
    We went for an early dinner last Saturday night. Cocktails were really good beforehand at the bar (had the option of a "dirty" martini, haven't been asked that even at the American Bar at the Savoy). The food we had was good but the dining concept is all wrong. What they serve is tapas of varying sizes which they want to knock out to the customer at their convenience without the inconvenience of having to serve courses at the same time to each table. So if you don't want the tasting menu (£80 + £34 for wine, which is reasonable), and you hadn't anticipated tapas, then your dining experience will be very disjointed. We told our waiter that only two of us were able to eat at a time, he replied "I don't cook the food" which was unhelpful.

    Went here for a meal midweek and was impressed with the place. I thought it may be a little pretentious but actually the staff were so friendly and attentive - which is quite rare for somewhere so central where a lot of places you just feel like they don't pay you any attention and you are just another customer to deal with but we didn't feel that way at all. We had the 8 course taster menu which was really delicious and great value and the dessert at the end was one of the best I've had on a night out! Would definitely recommend it for a good night out and will be going back again.

    Trendy restaurant reflecting that of a hip boutique hotel restaurant. Slick setting with chilled house music playing (with a little dj spin table in the corner) - but was not to loud at all. Service from every staff was great (very well trained and professional) from the moment we steeped in upstairs at the door to our waiters at our dinner table. It could be that we were dining early and were one of the only few tables there but I'm under the impression that they still operate well when busy. Food was delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had the 8 course pre theatre menu toptable deal for £25, which was incredibly worth every penny. Food was Fancy but not too pretentious and surprisingly bigger portions than expected. Overall highly recommended.

    Had the excellent Toptable Set menu deal for £25 ph. Superb service throughout, very attentive and not pushy, making us feel relaxed. Nice ambience, although music a little full on at times as a minor grumble. Not rushed throughout and food really nice. Avoid the upgrades available on the menu as they arent worth the cost, keep to the deal and you'll be fine. Set menu includes 2 Bellini cocktails so you could save cash by not buying the £10+ cocktails at the bar. Will be going back.

    The place feels like a nightclub that has had a kitchen installed in it as it was not only decorated as such but was too dark, with elaborate chandeliers and incessant dance music throughout our dinner. The tables were far too close to each other and the waiter was far too chatty and intent on being involved in our dining "experience" (call me old fashioned but I like my waiters to be as efficient and as little in the way as possible). The food itself however was quite good. We opted for the £25 pre theatre 8 course meal which was had an excellent variety. The tuna was cooked to perfection, the beef cheeks were excellent and the truffle gnocchi was possibly the best I've had yet. Great selection of wines too.

    Had a meal out with the girls to celebrate some birthdays using a TopTable deal which matched wine with each course. One friend doesn't drink wine, which the restaurant were kind to accommodate with a couple of replacement cocktails. Cocktails were great, wine was gorgeous, food delicious & great service. Our waitress even picked up on the birthday theme and brought over our puddings complete with birthday music over the sound system and sparklers in hand. Great touch!

    I visited Yaneff at DSTRKT on a Friday evening with a friend and took advantage of a Toptable special offer. We also spent an extra £10 each to add lobster to one of the courses on the special Toptable menu, although I later discovered that on the main menu its just £3 to add it! I found this really disappointing. Some of the waiting staff were very attentive, some not at all, but the food was absolutely delicious and other than feeling robbed over the lobster, we did have a great evening and I would visit again.

    If dining in a nightclub is your thing then this could be for you. Although the cocktails were amazing it felt like style over substance. The waiting team all had a very similar, sculptured and skinny look. We were tucked away in a corner and the service was somewhat lacking, with us having to get out of our chairs to pour our own wine. When we were served is was efficient and friendly, but overall not nearly attentive enough for the price point. Disappointing
