The food was delicious, the restaurant was full to capacity but this did not delay the speed or the quality of the food that was served.

I think the restaurant has perhaps tried to squeeze in far too many tables. I came as a pre booked party of six and sat at 3 different tables to try and find one we could all all comfortably sit around, unfortunately the table was situated right next to where the two singers sat so we couldn’t hear each other when we were talking as it was far to loud.

Aside from the noise and the cramped tables... the cocktails were awesome.... and the food superb, I highly recommend the mojitos and the whole lobster! The staff couldn’t all understand English but did their very best to make sure we had everything we needed

I loved big easy. I've always thought food is a lot better than in hard rock and other similar restaurants. But this time, the food was very average, the ribs was too dry, it was not edible...and the lobster not tasting as fresh. I was looking forward to their usual gorgeous coleslaw but this time, it was a normal watery coleslaw. I dont know if they've had a change of chef or recipe... what has happened to your food

The lobster mac came out cold then they reheated and it tasted awful had to change to lobster. And we was crammed in to a really awkward area, not a good space for children. And the cocktails were weak and portly made.

No. Not in a million years. The service was really slow. She give us a meal but not a drinks meal. When asked for a drinks meal we had to wait another 10 mins. Once she give us the menu we had to wait another 20 mins to wait to get served

But the live music was not good for a Saturday night. Would be good to have something to sing along too..more of a party vibe like it used to be years ago. The music really let it down. Food was amazing though

Birthday party

Food was great as usual!

Service was great although it took a while for our drinks to come (Boozy Brunch sitting) but the staff made up for it by extending our seating time a little

Great venue!

The burger was over cooked charred so I couldnt eat it but they did remove it from the bill but I would have preferred to have been able to eat it
That was the only negative of the night
Thank you

Sunday night was very busy, felt like they didn’t have enough waiting staff as I had to call a waiter to get him to take our order, clear our plates, bring a dessert menu etc. Also £20 for a rack of ribs with 2 small sides seemed quite expensive given that it feels a bit like a Nandos in there!

Great service by the server but food took forever. Ribs didn't have much meat on them. As ambience was good. Live music is a
plus.

A great night but the toilets were unacceptablely dirty. Smelly, stains on the floor and toilet paper filled toilet. Not what you expect from Big Easy or the Kings Road!

We used to go there and enjoyed it but since the new chef has arrived the BBC sauce is different, the spareribs meat was very dr and we had to sent it back to the kitchen. We then ended up paying more than 20 pounds for a very small lobster roll and a tiny salad with just leaves in. The burger my partner ended up having was good.

Even though I had booked a table well in advance, we still needed to wait for the table to be arranged, which was quite confined and could barely fit 5 people.
The food was very tasty and the staff were really friendly, so all in all a good experience.

I have visited Big Easy on a number of occasions in the last 10 years. A favorite of mine was baby back ribs. I was always impressed with the food and ambiance .. However, this time I was horrified with the food that had been served to me and my two companions. The baby back ribs was cold, hard and chewy as though it was taken from the fridge and warmed up for a short while in a microwave!. I wanted to complain, but found the service team very uninterested .. The cesear salad was equally disastrous with old limp lettuce drenched in sauce. Overall it was very disappointing indeed .. I had seen some bad reviews on Big Easy but I didn't want to believe it (as I was a loyal customer) but I was proved wrong. When it came to paying they had added 12.5% to the bill as service charge but the waiter seemed to expect more tips which when he failed to get, did not bother to even say goodbye. I also took the opportunity to have quick peek inside their kitchen. It was a chaotic and somewhat disgusting sight with they way they prepared food and had trays and containers stacked on the floor. I will never visit the place again. And I suggest and expect that the place will soon close down..

The staff were lovely. Service quick. Food was average and served too quickly to be freshly cooked. The toilets were terrible. Both ladies were blocked, full and smelt. They also needed painting and generally cleaning

I love Big Easy and go there often but recently they’ve changed the menu, they’ve removed chips from the bundle offer and started sprinkling coriander to Lobsters. I’m allergic to both parsley and coriander and had to spend 5-10min removing it yet could still taste it. Not great, next time need to remember to ask them not to and they must remember to tell us that chips are not included rather than leave us waiting for chips to arrive.

Everything was amazing especially the food! But staff took way too long to approach and we asked for drinks several times with nothing coming for a long time. When we ordered dessert of two strawberry waffles wwe had asked if the butter was poured on, waiter said we can have that served on the side separately, when it arrived by someone who looked like management as he wasn't wearing uniform I had asked which one doesn't have butter and he proceeded to state he didn't know i'm not your waiter but didn't proceed to find who our waiter was. He then started to become argumentative which was uncalled for. You would think choosing a restaurant and spending £600 this one person had put a spanner in the night after we had a great evening. Service let it down but we would go back and now we all know who this person is, if we saw him as we are locals we would just ask to be served by someone else. Such a shame especially as it has just been renovated and looks great. Or maybe try the Covent Garden branch

Very happy with the food and the choice of food. We were a table of 6 and the table was crammed in and with the quantity of food plus drinks it was a little uncomfortable.

I want to say a big thank to the tall mix raced lady with exceptional beautiful eyebrows. I didn’t get her name who made my Mum feel so special on her birthday. She was personable warm loving and friendly and you don’t get service like that these days. She deserves a promotion because I genuinely she is lovely person
