Had a lovely time on a quiet Monday morning.

Booked this place last minute when looking for a place to have a business meal over breakfast. 28-50 did not disappoint!! I had the smashed avocado with poached eggs on sourdough and it was simply amazing. My guest had the eggs Benedict and also enjoyed it. The presentation was lovely but we were too hungry and overwhelmed by the smell that we didn't thought of taking any pictures. There wasn't many guests when we arrived, which was perfect as we were able to have our meeting but it quickly picked up and had a nice buzz by the time we left. Service was also very good, attentive but not intrusive and always making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.

Thank you everyone, We shall be back!!

My friend was visiting me from Denmark and because he told me beforehand he was craving oysters, I did my research and booked a table at 28-50 couple weeks in advance. When we arrived, we were told that they had no oysters at all and there were a couple others changes from what they were offering in their menu. This was very disappointing as oysters were the sole reason we chose this place. We picked something to eat out of the pretty uninspiring menu (burger for him, tuna for me). They tasted good but nothing special, considering the price we paid. On a positive note, the staff were lovely and very polite and the atmosphere cosy. It was a very unmemorable night and I don’t see us returning.

Not really sure where to start with this one. To begin with it’s much smaller than it looks and was half empty.
Pretty looking bar area. Despite the half empty we had to wait for 5 minutes for a table. There seemed to be many staff but we waited another 10 minutes for our drinks order.
We then waited nearly 30 minutes for our starter - all fine however, everyone was pleasant. We then waited another 30 mins for our main. Here is where it gets weird. We ordered steaks as a treat and my friend asked for rare (she likes it bloody). Her steak arrives and looks exactly like my well done so we politely return it to the kitchen (35 quid on a steak etc)…. I continue eating which isn’t ideal but hey ho.
Suddenly the chef appears from the kitchen and begins to shout at my friend for returning the steak, saying it was rare and she doesn’t know what she’s talking about. I mean standing at our table shouting in her face, while she is close to tears. I have never seen the like.
Luckily the MD was there and escorted the chef back into the kitchen. The steak re emerged about 20 mins later so my friend ate it alone (I had obviously finished long before) reactions from the staff ranged from ‘he really cares about his cooking’ to ‘are you sure it wasn’t rare’ until the MD and deputy manager stepped in to apologise. They kindly gave us our drinks and her steak for free which was much appreciated but kind of necessary!
We had travelled to London for a festive day and this kind of took the shine off (we were laughing in absolute shock). So I cannot in good faith recommend but I will say my steak was well cooked if a
Little tainted by the screaming that came with it.
Thanks to the MD and assistant manager who were both good.

When we made the reservation we chose the a la carte menu but we learned we had to do the Christmas pre-fix menu when we arrived. We also had to ask several times for water and bread.
But, the food and ambiance was good.

An utterly, disappointing experience on every level. From conversations we had with other diners we were not alone in feeling that overall the food was awful. The turkey choice looked like a processed meal, It was cold & unappealing, the fish choice was dry & the desserts overly sweet & not long out of a microwave.

The service was painfully slow, despite a full team of staff , who seemed unable to answer queries & the whole thing judt felt inefficient . My daughter sent her meal back & was not offered an alternative or apology nor were we given a credit on the bill.

The only redeeming feature of the entire meal was the recommended wine.

We have eaten here before but based on yesterdays experience We will not return agsin.

We apologize. Christmas day was very tough for our group. Despite record staff sickness and self-isolations, transport and supplies challenges, we made the decision to open on Christmas day anyway. Maybe we should not have done. We know that the vast majority of our customers had a wonderful day, but we are aware that some did not - they have been quite explicit about it in reviews. We are very sad about that. If/when things get back to normal, we will contact you to offer a meal on the house.

Decided on 28-50 for a first date, waited 15mins by the door to attract attention of staff to be seated.
Eventually was seated on a table with barely enough room for one person.
Managed to get moved after 30mins to another table which was worse, sat in a walk way where I kept being knocked by staff and guests walking past.
I have been to the place previously and clearly it was crammed with more covers than it has capacity.
Main course arrived before drinks and olives. Had to request waitress twice to bring drinks, which took sometime to arrive and the food got cold.
Was charged for olives which I ordered but didn't recieve despite requesting again.
Ordered red wine by the glass 250ml (×2) which was listed at £10 per glass but billed at £14.20.
Effectively I over paid; Olives 4.50, 2 x 4.20 for the red wine and 8.95 for poor service which was optional but added to final bill without question. So overpaid £21.85.
I was not in a position to dispute the bill and create a scene in front of my date, so paid and left.

Lovely atmosphere! Staff could have been more attentive - we had to keep calling them over when we wanted something and had to ask for the bill 3 times. We started with the cheese and charcuterie board which was delicious. There was a lot of miscommunication with the mains. I wanted a chicken supreme but without truffle. I mentioned if it wasn’t possible to remove the truffle, if I could substitute the potatoes with chips or another side. The chips, firstly, came before the sharing board (they were meant to go with the main). Then when the main arrived, the chicken itself looked miserable on a huge bowl, which the chips arrived in its own pot separately. My friend also ordered the chicken supreme (with truffle) and hers was presented in such a lovely manner. I didn’t expect a side substitution to cause so much trouble - next time I’ll order something completely different in the hope to not have to substitute an ingredient that I do not like. Then when the bill arrived, they charged for the chips… despite it again being a substitute for the truffle potatoes! This whole experience definitely made me feel like I’d asked for something extremely complicated, when in reality, it was meant to be easy and simple.

Dear Lobi, Many thanks for taking the time to review us, despite it being disappointing for us. It seems that much of your experience has come down to miscommunication, which the industry sees a lot of (of so many people who work in restaurants, English isn't their first language), however, I am sorry that this led to leaving a bitter taste in your mouth.

We had a lovely late meal at 28-50. It has a triangular shaped dining area with the bar in the middle. Three of us sat in the far corner at the top of the stairs, but it was not a cramped or busy location. The 3 main courses we ate were hake, risotto and celeriac bake together with a shared salad - the food was very good, well plated and good portion size. We shared a bottle of Malbec which was lovely.
The service was very good.
The venue was chosen for to its proximity to the Wigmore Hall and its vegetarian and vegan options. We were not disappointed and would dine there again.

My husband and I came to 28-50 when we first got married and it's stuck with us as one of our favorite restaurants that we would reminisce about.

Last night I took my husband here for his 31st birthday.

For 2 courses and 2 glasses of wine we paid £135. We drove to hours to get to the restaurant and I had saved up money over a course of months for the evening.
Sadly it was not a meal to match the occasion.
We had just finished our starters when a waiter asked us if we wanted tea or coffee before he bought us the bill.

My husbands main was hard for him to stomach. He had the Hake, which was cooked well...but the sauce it sat on tasted as he described like 'toilet cleaner'.
My steak came well done when I had asked for medium rare.

We just didn't feel like we got the service or experience we have had years before and certainly not the experience we would hope to have on the night of a loved ones birthday.

We felt uncomfortable making a scene or a fuss and so we skipped dessert and set off back home.
I felt embarrassed that my husband hadn't got the birthday meal he probably wanted. After all this was my gift to him this year.

It is a very small restaurant with LOTS of customers. We were struggling to hear each other. Our table for 6 was in fact two tables for two stuck together and it was so close to the window, that I have banged my head twice on their frame. It is really nothing special. I probably wouldn't have minded, if I just have popped in, but I relied on the reviews here and made a reservation a week in advance. Really isn't worth it. The so called "great choice of wines" is in fact around 10 cheap ones and around 5 more expensive ones. They charge you 12.5% service charge and when you leave, there is not anyone even to look your way.
Food was ok, we found it was very bland. My husband's lamb only had 3 tiny slices of meat. It was also barely warm.
The overall experience- it is not for a special occasion. Maybe for a quick drink with friends and a chat.
And they did not have any baby changing facilities.
