    Great location and good food but service somewhat haphazard.: perhaps just a bad day. Waiters/waitress were polite enough but we had to ask three times before securing a glass of wine. Nobody seemed to be organising anything.

    We have been going to Frederick's for more than 40 years. Times ands fashions do change and even though it wasn't a stuffy place back then I would suspect that the level of formality among both diners and staff has decreased a lot but the ambience is still great , the food lovely and in fact good value and the wine list superb. It is still and hopefully will remain my favourite place to eat in London.

    I have been eating here on and off for about 42 years but obviously less after moving out of London. There was confusion re the wine bottle number which the wine waiter tried to make out was my mistake saying the number given didn't exist. I corrected him. The main course I ordered was off but an alternative was offered. It was fairly busy and they did have a very large table but I got the impression that they were short on staff.

    Beautiful garden tables in the sun it preferred. Great food with excellent attentive but pleasantly low key service. Very stylish and open airy feeling and unstuffy and with some great items on the menu, particularly fish. Good veggie options too. Highly recommended!

    A return visit to an old haunt for a celebratory early evening dinner. Having strolled along Upper Street and stopped off at some of the great pubs on the way my friend and I caught up as we relaxed into the afternoon before arriving at the restaurant to be greeted by some familiar faces. Good restaurants retain their front of house teams. I used to live in Islington and Frederick’s was a firm favourite of mine for social and business lunches and dinner. I even once met a client for lunch that went on until late afternoon. Due to meet another client for dinner, and as the lunch had been so good, I simply moved to the bar area for a couple of hours before greeting my other client back at the same table. It is fair to say that when visiting this week, it was like I had never been away. Fabulous staff. Attentive but not overly so. Knowledgeable sommelier, and a menu that was so comforting. Nothing had changed. A sensible menu. Classic Frederick’s. A fine choice of in season dishes and ingredients with excellent wines to match. My friend had the crab and I had the squid. Both excellent. We then both considered the tantalising fish and meat dishes before settling on the Veal with cavolo nero and some sides of braised broccoli and french beans. That was perfect. A dish to remember. For wines we had a Corton Charlemagne, followed by the sommelier’s recommendation of a Moret St Denis Luis. Both were outstanding. Perfectly cellared, presented and served. We didn’t mange a dessert and yet we realised that having sat down at 6.30pm four hours had flown by whilst we chatted at our leisure. No hurry along or suggestion that we might like to head over to the bar area. Thank you to the team at Frederick’s. Still one of the best restaurants around. We will see you again very soon.

    We returned to Frederick's for our 10th wedding anniversary. Saturday afternoon - bright and airy feel to the place (now bigger than I remember it), attentive but not intrusive service. Great food. What Frederick's does well is combine high quality ingredients in reasonably simple combinations that don't need a science degree to work out what's going on. The overall food concept appears to be modern bistro with a nod to Italian-style excellence-with-simplicity. Frederick's may (rightfully) be an Islington institution, but is in no way stuffy.

    Love Fredericks but I do think the food could do with a bit of an improvement. The cod was overdone but somehow the skin wasn’t crisped, implying cooking for too long on too low a temp. The buerre blanc was insipid, with no vinegar or butter to speak of. I am perhaps being overly critical, but these are the basics of French cuisine and should be second nature for a professional chef. Having said that I am aware of the ongoing kitchen recruitment problems so that may have been part of the reason. Would still go back though, the good outweighs the bad.

    Good fish and meat options. My lamb was really nicely prepared. Wine list practical rather than super extensive - had a nice Rioja Reserva which was smooth with good oak, vanilla and cherry flavours. Ambience good - modern setting. Staff friendly though not quite at the excellent levels of service they delivered before covid. Overall, a good experience.
