Even though we arrived much earlier than our booking time, the staff was very kind and friendly and we have been settled in a few minutes. The service was very good, as well as the creative food. Excellent wine list. A good spot for a lovely dinner with friends

We went for Valentine’s meal at this old favourite of ours. The room is always the restaurant’s greatest asset which was looking very pretty with a rear wall of fairy lights in front of material.

The food is good but is always surpassed by its surroundings.

Ravioli in stock soup followed by venison was tasty but the chocolate fondant with ice cream & a Pedro ximenez sherry was totally awesome!

This meal was for my sons 19th birthday. I was taken to Fredericks by my father from a very young age. Although this was my first return in 10+ years it still excludes the long-standing charm and ambience it has always had. Service excellent, food delicious and an eclectic mix of diners. Just loved it

The staff were very attentive without being intrusive from the moment we entered the restaurant. The meal was delightful from start to finish, the wine (pinot grigio) was lovely on the palate. Our cocktails finished off the evening perfectly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Fredericks to anyone, a pure pleasure, thank you to everyone for making our experience so enjoyable. Well done.

Hidden gem in Islington! We love this place. The food is consistently excellent, the ambience is lovely - natural light, high ceilings, garden view - and the service is outstanding. Great for dinner with friends, business brunch or a date night. They also looked after my gluten-allergy really well without drawing lots of attention to it

Frederick's is one of my favourite places to eat in London. I usually eat from the a la carte but this lunchtime I was so tempted by the set lunch I went for that. Amazing value for money for the choice and quality. The service, as usual, was excellent. I can't recommend this restaurant enough.

Very expensive for terrible food. We ordered the parpadelle pasta which was so over cooked it was like eating mush. Also a very small portion. Not worth the amount you have to pay.

Always excellent. Relaxed atmosphere, good food and sensibly priced. In the summer dine in the garden if you can. The rest of the time the main restaurant in the 'conservatory' is delightful. Food is reliably good if not all that adventurous. The wine list is comprehensive and sensibly (for a restaurant) priced. Staff are welcoming and friendly and attentive. An excellent place to go with a group of friends, or just for a diner-a-deux with someone special. I have been a guest here, on and off, for about 20 years and have never had a less than outstandingly good experience. Highly recommended.

I really like Fredericks. I feel like the staff look after me yet leave me alone. The food is all tempting and always as good as you hope.
I really really like the excellent sommelier who has an expert mode of interrogation to ensure you drive exactly what you fancy. Genius.
Set in gorgeous rooms. Busy but never crowded.
I can’t wait to go again.

The online menu bears little relation to the actual menu, particularly the prices, so check your bank balance before booking, this is not a quick, cheap, bite and go. The food, however, will not disappoint. The service is attentive and friendly. We had a big family birthday party with kids next to us so the noise was an issue. It's a big, noisy place so it all depends on where you are seated if you're looking for intimacy. Overall, for a special occasion, you probably won't be disappointed.

Very good food. Can be a little difficult to get service when you want it, but overall the food is excellent, the people extraordinarily nice, and the ambience attractive and relaxing. Provided you ask for a quiet table, the noise level is not too high, but when the restaurant is full, it can be a bit overwhelming. Fredericks remains one of my favourite restaurants

The set menu is excellent value and by choosing one meal from that and a second from the a la carte we nanaged to find a 3 course meal to suit our tastes for reasonable cost. Wine list reasonable. Polite unobtrusive service. Vegetarian options of mainly pasta lack imagination though.

I've not been here for a while. As always the service was faultless and the restaurant itself is beautiful. Perfect for the pre theatre catch up with a friend I haven't seen for a while. My fish and vegetables were perfectly cooked. Our wine was delicious but my dirty martini was far too salty and I only managed to drink half of it. I didn't tell anyone though and I'm sure they would have made me a new one.
