Me and my friend had reserved seats and we had been placed next to the live band which wasn't ideal but luckily they didn't play for that long, waited about 10 minutes for my lobster and shrimp roll which by the way was absolutely delicious, their lobster is so tender, with a bit of sweetness to it, just perfect. Would go every week if I could afford it. 20 stars they get from me.

The lobster. Yum. Had to wait awhile to order. Don't get why you have a terrace and you don't allow smoking or you don't serve food there, only self service drinks though. Annoying.

Have been looking forward to eating here for a number of years as I am not local and decided to book as I had tickets to Rita Ora at the O2. Service was great and really speedy. However my friend and I were both very poorly within a couple of hours and had to be sick we both had stomach cramps and generally felt very ill which obviously affected our evening! We both shared mussels and the shrimp so unsure if that was the cause but it has really put me off goin back or recommending I’m so disappointed having wanted to visit here for such a long time to have had this experience.

We generally like this place. It was very quiet and the manager was really friendly and helpful. Waht we did not like was the long wait with no assihned waiter. You would have wanted a drink at a bar diner right? No chance! So after a wait to get served, we did get our drinks. Then once food came, one dish lacked the side order until we got up to look for a waiter. That was almost after all our mains were eaten. Not easy to spot who is a waiter here. Not many customers Monday evening either. So sadly, it could have been great. We could have had more food and wine, but alas, no service! Luckily, we said something to the final person who asked the manager to come. Not sure the waitress knew what we were complaining about as she had not served us either. In fact, then we asked for water which did not come until we complained and had decided to leave asap. Shame. The food is awesome. Would go again, as the manager gave us a £10 discount for the poor service. Much appreciated gesture.

Background music is good. Not too loud as per multiple previous visits. Waiting staff we’re friendly and polite. Food was as expected from Big Easy although I thought my Bbq chicken wings and my prawns were a bit too over cooked. The wood charred taste was great on the other dishes.

Really lovely food but compared to a couple of weeks before the service was a bit off. We had to wait for our mojitos then the starters arrived before our drinks.

There was barely any gap then our main arrived. We struggled to finish as it felt too rushed ☹️

I ordered the popcorn shrimp to start and the prawns were rock hard and tasteless. Service was very slow, and I had asked to be seated away from small children and were shown to a table of 10 with 4 small children next to us, clearly nobody reads the notes that I added when making the reservation online, why bother having this feature. Was shocked to see a service charge had been added of 12.5%....could understand this charge being applied if it were for a large party dining, but for a family of 4 thought this was extreme and should be given the option for gratuity or not. Considering the service was poor, felt the 12.5% was not deserving in any way.

Hi. The food was delicious, service was good. But the only thing i was disappointed, it was my birthday and the lady who call to confirm the reservation knew about that and said when you order the dessert we will put birthday candle there and will sing happy birthday, but nothing happened. I was quite sad as you forget about that or just ignore. But in general was very good.

Ive been here 2times but the last time i went, lobster was just empty no worthy it at all. I paid £30 for lobster and felt like i had just a starter.
Portion is too small, food is good tho.
Even though i booked a table, i had to wait 25mins as well as another 25mins for food.
I understand that kitchen was busy but they could have managed table for reservations better so that people who booked will not wait that much.
Overall, i would definitely come back only if they improver the portion.

Absolutely love big easy, however the food was 7.5/10 this time around in my honest opinion.
My steak was very gristly and when asked for medium rare, was served medium/well done. But after 5mins or so waiting for someone to come over. Hunger took over and I eat it anyway.

Always will return, these things happen and my first time with not a great steak.

First time going to Big Easy and it’s safe to say I won’t be going again. Once I arrived at Big Easy we were seated by a women waiter who was wearing a checkered shirt. Our night consisted of ordering starters, main course, sides and drinks. The first issue occurred when we was ordering our food, we were met with hostility and coldness from our waitress. I asked for my steak to be cooked well-done and received it pink in the middle (I’ve taken a photo). She never checked back with us to see how our food was so the chance to amend the mistakes never came. We decided to get our bill and saw a 12.5% service charge, which I chose not to pay and have every right to – I didn’t believe she earned the service charge. So she then started to interrogate me, to which I responded with “I ordered my steak well done and it was bloody in the middle” and she replied with “We both know that isn’t true, but ok.” Insinuating that I’m lying so I didn’t know how to respond to such hostility and rudeness from a waitress in a place like Big Easy, which I had such high expectations of. I’d appreciate if I could speak to someone about this as I took my partner out for our anniversary meal and this experience ruined the night. Thank you.

Service was very helpful and attentive but not overbearing. Food was first class, If you like MEAT then this is the place for you. I highly recommend the Taste-o-rama, full flavoured tender meat and sides were great the slaw was lovely and fresh and the pit smoked beans were amazing. Be careful though you need to make sure you can eat as even i walked out stuffed

We had a really disappointing trip to The Big Easy. We came on a Weds and it wasn’t very busy (many empty tables round us). We’d barely sat down and the waiter was trying to get us to order food. We said we’d like a bit of time and he came back 1 minute later.
Once we’d ordered, our food came out pretty quickly but my friend had barely finished her starter and they were already there taking away the plate (there was even some food left on it!).
After our mains we were brought the dessert menu and after 30 secs we were being asked to order. The waiter then told us we had 10 mins to leave the table (even though we had 20 mins before our 2 hours was up). I told him it should have been 20 mins and he said another group would be sitting down at 8:30 on the dot so we had to be off by 20 past. I’ve never had this before. It was especially frustrating as there were empty tables of the same size around us. My friends wanted dessert but weren’t able to order as they didn’t want to have to rush it.

We all agreed that we won’t be eating there again as the whole experience left a sour taste in our mouths. Rude staff and no warmth at all.

Lobster just was not up to scratch, had several green bits in it.. I’ve never tasted a lobster so bad, I think you guys need to grill these instead of just only steaming.

The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and when my wife picked two courses off of the main menu the waitress pointed out she could have the same from the express menu which was cheaper.
Our food came out hot, plentiful and very tasty.
We will be back as my nephew has given us a dinner voucher which we will use next time.

Great place to bring friends for either lunch or dinner or happy hours to spent with. Foodies are excellent, services great too. My friend she is very happy that we could bonding quietly together and she does enjoy our quality time though. She’s coming back again to visit London and love to be back and try something else in big easy.
Keep up the great services and smiley faces however busy you are! Welcome to all of you 😀

Ideal for gatherings and small parties, the restaurant is massive, with great views around. The menu has so many things to choose from you could be there all day trying to decide what to order. The food was good but not great, but the price is pretty good value for lunch so I can't complain. Left the restaurant happy and feeling full!
