I’m a fairly regular at Frederick’s over the past 18 years but never get any recognition from front of house. Last night the service was slow, the food not up to standard and left me unexcited about ever returning to this once top of my list restaurant

This is an excellent restaurant for lunch. It serves good food, is great value and has well spaced tables. When I have eaten at Frederick’s previously and been seated in the main room which has a really good ambience. On this occasion I was seated in the adjoining room which was not quite as pleasant and the service not as attentive.

Ideal for pre theatre meal and by eating early a 2/3 course meal is a a reasonable price

Both of us chose from the table d'haut menu, which was excellent. As always, the service was attentive without being intrusive, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was warm and friendly - quite unlike the wind and rain outside.

As always a beautiful setting for a birthday celebration. Food is always excellent, staff friendly and helpful and they always make you feel special. My only adverse comment is I would like slightly more choice of wines at the bottom end. This still remains our first choice for a special celebration.

always reliably good. A welcoming atmosphere because of the friendly staff. I keep going back, and have done for about 40 years. The amazing thing is it still seems fresh and modern .

In an area where a restaurant lasting 3 years is seen as quite successful, Freds at 50 years shows how it should be done!

Slow to take order for drinks in bar, even when it was quiet.
Slightly cold in dining area. Pre theatre set menu was excellent. Staff very attentive.

We had the set menu and the food was great, really nice selection and good value for money. There were a couple of things unavailable on both the set and a la carte menus and it seems they forgot our main course at one point as we waited quite some time. Overall a really good experience with very attentive staff and an amusing sommelier!

It’s become a tradition for my children and I to eat here every 10th December, my late wife’s birthday. We had our wedding reception here in 1994! Wonderful food, great service and such a lovely space and ambience always leave us feeling uplifted on what can otherwise be a dark day...

I went here with friends as part of my 50th birthday celebrations. It was a magical experience all round. The parmigiana and vegetarian pie were outstanding; the wine servers provided us with excellent recommendations all night and the service and atmosphere were intimate, stylish and relaxing. Thank you to everyone at Frederick’s for making our whole evening sparkle. See you all again soon.

Service poor, food bland, and extremely overpriced for kale and a piece of tiny unseasoned fish. The meal felt rushed. I would not return.

Our favourite restaurant for many years (30?). We have never been let down either by the food or the staff. Frederick's has maintained a very high standard and is always a joy to visit. I will continue to visit with friends and family in the knowledge that I can always count on a very special experience.
