Can’t fault Fredericks. The food is always excellent and the ambience and the quality of the staff are exceptional. Fredericks deserve all the success it gets.
As always the food wad excellent and the staff attentive without being overbearing.
The perfect place for a lovely dinner with family and friends.
Frederick’s is always wonderful!
My husband’s birthday meal with friends was made even more special by delicious food in a relaxing atmosphere and friendly service.
Excellent staff ...helpful , efficient ...well done !
Great Business Luncheon .. staff incredibly attentive … Rioja lovely and lamb chops gorgeous
Lovely menu and accommodating staff. Everything was cooked to perfection and the wine list was fabulous.
My only comment is about the ambience. There is a very bright spotlight above each table. It's much too bright. It would be nice if those lights could be dimmed and candles added to the tables.
Frederick’s is fabulous. Good exceptional and service first class. The restaurant has a lovely ambience.
As ever a lovely experience eating at Frederick’s. Not cheap but wonderful food, attentive service and great wine list. Special occasion destination - it was our 20th wedding anniversary.
Underwhelmed, service slow, v noisy, overpriced and food not great.
Amazing food ! Great staff , beautiful to share my evening with. What now could a man ask for.
I've been going to Fredericks for over 25 years now on special occasions with my wife , and it has never let us down.
Service ,ambience ,and food (in particular) has always been first class
Excellent restaurant. The food was delicious as was the wine. Lovely staff and a wonderful ambience.
This is a charming restaurant and bar which is ideal for any occasion. The food is excellent, great atmosphere and wonderful service
Been a long standing anchor restaurant t for Islington for may years. Always guaranteed good food and service. A favourite "go to". Never going to be blown away by the food like a 3* michelin restauarant but that's not why you choose it.
Great place, good food and ambience and good value. Friendly staff
Fredericks is a very classy restaurant in all respects.
The menu is not interesting and varied - particularly impressed with their
Choice of seafood - had a delicious meal of sea bass !
Love the decor and ambience of the restaurant and also the charming garden
Service is high end - very professional and attentive.
Always book Fredericks for special celebration meals and it never disappoints!
Does what is has always done as well as it had ever done
lovely food in very relaxed surroundings with excellent service. Always fee special coming here.
First time to Fredericks. Recommended by a friend and it didn’t disappoint. Everything was great. Will definitely be going back again
Delicious food, excellent service and lovely wine. Always reliable
have loved and used fredericks for 40 years. but the food is now distinctly average which makes it very expensive. it was also served luke warm which is not acceptable to me.
The staff and ambience is still wonderful but it’s not enough to keep me going back so i really hope they up their game soon
We went to Frederick's for an Anniversary Dinner - and we sat outside in the garden area. Its really quite romantic out there and great for an early dinner. The Service was impeccable, and the food was good - with a few notable exceptions.
We ordered the Tempura prawns and veg sharing plate to start, this was excellent - except for the Asparagus which was almost raw (very very crunchy and hard to bite. Maybe this needs to be a little pre-cooked before frying?).
My wife then ordered 2 more starters, rather than a main - and went with the Scallops (Absolutely perfectly cooked and deliciously sweet) and the dressed crab - which again was perfectly prepared, if just a little on the small side even as an appetizer .
I ordered the Chateaubriand for one (hesitantly as I couldn't see how this would work). The meat arrived and was cooked well (rare as requested) - but definitely not the thick piece of meat I would have expected, and had already been carved (not prepared at table as I am used to). Whilst it was a good tender cut - it also lacked flavour. I think a little more seasoning the day before could have fixed that. Overall - it was underwhelming in size - I estimate about 4oz of meat in total (pre-cooked).
This dish was also served with 1 side and I chose the Sauteed potatoes. Sadly - I believe these were just deep fried rather than shallow and also in too cold oil. Whilst they were cooked - they were filled and covered with oil- so much so - that the mouth feel was just that - oil.
Finally - we shared the chocolate fondant. This came as expected (as good as any other I've had).
All in all - we thoroughly enjoyed the meal (partly just to be out) - but these small concerns did cause upset, and I was still hungry when we left (the portions are just a little too small - not quite 80's nouvelle cuisine - but close) given the cost was around £80 a head, we think the restaurant could have done better (at that price - shouldn't everything be just right? )
Can’t praise this place enough. Arrived late on my reservation after a show, and 3 minutes before the kitchen was about to close, the welcoming that I received from the manager and the sommelier was incredible…(I worked in hospitality for 20 years, I know what it feels like for the staff to welcome late comers).
I wish I could give you 10 stars Frederick’s, and can’t wait to come back again.
Good food,good atmosphere,good service,
What else do you need??????
Lovely food, lovely service. Would definitely go back!
Food was average all around the table. Veal cutlets arrived cold. Perhaps it was waiting for too long in the kitchen before serving to the table.
Service is good BUT our waiter was with no mask (mouth cover only is No cover).
After writing the review above I spoke to my friend. Apparently their food was so bad that I feel I had to change my marking. In totally paid £130 / couple which was very bad value for money.
Beautiful setting, delicious well prepared food... friendly and attentive staff.
Dishes were overpriced I thought and just ho hum in range and flavour.
Website promised a set menu but there wasnt one.
My feet were cold throughout and generally a bit too airy.
We have dined here many times and it never disappoints. I am coeliac and all my gluten free requests are dealt with no problems and I can eat most of the menu with no changes and they are always happy to help and suggest alternatives. Staff are happy and friendly and we love coming here. No pretentiousness just a lovely atmosphere, great food and a wonderful time.
Excellent food but it could have been served hotter, same for the cappuccinos
Attentive friendly staff. Food was very tasty and good value. Would definitely visit again.
Excellent dinner at Frederick's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Fabulous food: my husband had the scallops for first course which he said were superb. And for main course I had the veal and caponata - the veal was amazing, an enormous piece and fantastic flavour, the best veal I have tasted in my 70+ years. Dessert - summer pudding - first class too. As non-alki drinkers, we had the Mojito mocktail which is amazing too. A great evening and good value for the price.
Party of 3. Husband chose the beef, mum chicken and I had the cod. Cod beautifully cooked but found the sauce slightly disappointed (not a big cream type sauce person) but still very good. I had a taste of the beef and the chicken - both superb. Service was great as usual. Very helpful and attentive sommelier.
Really really special.
Lovely ambience, attentive and kind service, food was outstanding.
The service is excellent and the food very good. The dining room open to an inner garden with a few tables.
This is the perfect place for a family lunch, for an elegant dinner, for a convivium and / or any social event. This is just a perfect and perfectly run restaurant. Enjoy it!
Having looked at the dessert menu we decided to go straight to the mains. We all chose the cod and really cannot describe how delicious it was, such a delicate flavour. Desserts didn't disappoint either Summer Pudding and Cheesecake, our choices, worth any calories consumed! Staff attentive and courteous.
Will definitely return.
Fabulous food in a stylish environment, knowledgeable attentive and very efficient staff.
I love Fredericks food is consistently delicious, service impeccable
One of my favourite places to eat for the last 30 years
