Service was great and the live music wasn’t too loud and added a good atmosphere to the place. The food was decent, highly recommend the spinach tortilla dip. I always enjoy my time in any of the Blues Kitchens but Brixton is the best.

Dining at Blues Kitchen Brixton is a must! Impeccable service, great atmostphere, banging cocktails and sexy food , what more couold you ask for? The manager Joey (who bares a striking resemblance to Ruby Rose btw) is an absolute rockstar! She really made the night a memorable one. The floor staff were more than accomodating and full of banter, we had a lovely girl (from Barcelona I believe) who made sure we were kept well fed and hydrated. The food, drinks and music were 10/10! Seriously, those ribs were just mouth watering!

One of the best spots in London, no doubt!

We had a great time, hugely well stocked bar, great food and plenty of it. Servers were friendly and knowledgeable. If anything, I would have liked to have heard more live music. One performance began at 8.45pm, by this time we had been here nearly 2 hours already. Apparently there was something else happening upstairs which we missed as no one explained how it all works, which would have been useful and added to the enjoyment.

Went for dinner on a Wednesday, had a real nice vibe to it on arrival which continued in to the evening. We found out there was a jam upstairs so when we finished our food we head up to watch some music whilst finishing our drink.

From we stepped into the restaurant we felt a good vibe, the waitresses were very quick and so friendly. Offering great advice on food and drinks. The noise level was a bit high but it did not take away anything from our experience. Will definitely be going again and will certainly recommend to my family & friends.

Despite being a busy Friday night, service was really quick and friendly. Waiter and waitresses were able to answer our questions and give us recommendations.

They also gave us information about bands and entertainment that evening without asking which was great. We ended up having an amazing night!

Everybody was very enthused with the menu but the actual food was very disappointing.

Starters were good and we all liked them.

I had brisket with burnt ends. The brisket was very fatty and not that good quality meat. The burnt ends came in a small pot but were very oily and so I did not finish either of these items.

When I have had this before the burnt ends elsewhere they were not so oily at all.

Another guest in our group had the same dish and also complained that the brisket was very fatty.

Another guest had the Southern Fried Chicken and compained that this was rather tastless and also oily. It was her birthday. I tried some and the meat was not very good quality with little chicken meat and more grissle and stringy sinew.

All agreed in future to just have starters but to be honest I don't thnk I would at Brixton again. Also we were going to watch the band upstairs afterwards so it made sense. I remember the jambalaya in the Camden branch was very nice, which is why I chose this place again but made a mistake as guests were unhappy. It cost quite a lot for food of this quality,

I thought that the food was delicious (had the pancakes), and a really good portion size. I also had the bottomless mimosas and felt that the staff were very eagle eyed and made sure you didn’t have an empty glass for long ;) I would recommend this place.

Very nice place to spend the evening, I would also say it is slightly overprice to make it your regular watering hole, but the live Bands and vibe makes it a worthwhile treat.

We all had a great time.

It is a pleasure to have a burger cooked as I requested, so many restaurants are way behind the standard of the Blues Kitchen.

Although busy the service was friendly and fast.

Thanks,

It's a beautiful venue and you are always made to feel very special by the staff. Tables and booths are always clean. Staff are extremely welcoming and you are never hurried away . The food is good but sometimes tends to be over seasoned.

Really enjoyed the evening as I have always at the BK Brixton. Margret was very understanding with me and my partner regards ordering food. Top marks for her. However the two ladies behind the bar could have been a bit more friendly and one her English was not the best, but its a minor mention, always a good night.

We came to see Mud Morgansfield play. The food was delicious. An English restaurant unusually being able to serve American food as if you really are in the states. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Because my husband is disabled and not able to stand for long periods I’d asked if it was possible to provide a seat for him to see the show. Otherwise he would have not been able to attend. This was organised for us with no fuss and we were made to feel most welcome. A terrific place to go to either just for a meal or a meal and to see a show.
