However the worst thing was to put a table of mothers and babies right next to us - and the babies were very loud! Total insanity - if you want to attract people for business lunches, don't put screaming babies next to them . It was irritating and distracting. Third time I've been to this normally excellent restaurant in a few months and, whilst I still like it, I am puzzled by the lack of attention to detail in this last visit.

Food was very nice, good wine list, but receptionist was impatient and irritable when we asked to move us to another table. I didn't want to sit in a dark corner where the wall was covered in a massive piece of animal fur. Don't even understand why this is necessary? Anyway when we went back to reception it was handled very unprofessionally but then they found us another table.

I also know they have great options for vegetarians/vegans and true to form, the food was everything I hoped it would be. Beetroot ravioli for starters, mushrooms in a vegan XO sauce with herbed tofu and chocolate delice for dessert. Everything was fresh, flavourful and a reminder of how good they are at this kind of food. So sad they will be closing. They're short staffed as people try to find other jobs by the end of the month and so can't book to capacity but go if you get the chance.

We knew the restaurant was a bit on the fancy side, and as such the prices reflected this. But the service was very good and the food was spot on, so you definitely got what you paid for. A very good restaurant, such a shame it's closing soon!

It will be greatly missed as the most interesting and novel menu in Camden: not vegetarian but light on the meat and with excellent and adventurous options for vegetarians. I'd always expected Bruno Loubet to end up with a successful chain of such restaurants, but not to be. Go soon, try the Tricolor gazpacho and the pea mousse tart as clues to what his food is all about.

Not great! Starter was fantastic and both mains were ok, promised more than they delivered. My friend had duck dish, I had mushroom and herb tofu, not up to much really, may have sat on the pass too long. Inside was certainly more buzzy, so that would be my preferred option in future. Would give it another try, but on this occasion, it didn't wow! Sorry.

I've seen more inspiring pasta & lamb dishes on set menus for under £20. Food was very average. Not inspiring at all. Love the ambience & service. But I don't think I will be visiting Grain Store again.

We like the fact we were given a taste of the wine before we chose what we wanted. I had a dish which included baked peaches which were hard. It was lively with a pleasant ambience - a lot of echo though. Service was good We did consider it to be overpriced though for what we had, so can't really recommend it as value for money.

However, after breakfast the other day I'm left feeling disappointed. The food we ordered wasn't specific to the menu, and for the price of the plate it made us feel annoyed that we were paying for food that we could have made at home. The staff and chef tried to explain themselves out of the issue. Back for dinner and drinks, but perhaps not for a while...

We should have had plenty of time but had to skip our coffees as one of us had to catch a train from KGX.

I love the vibe, the creativity of the menu, the use of fresh and seasonal ingredients and also the location is great, Granary Square is a very funky spot, of late. They are amazing with catering for vegetarians with imaginative and delicious dishes. No boring risotto here! :)

The duck was a very flavoursome, robust dish which was hearty. My friend had the hake which was lighter and very delicately seasoned. I got the impression that it would probably do with a little bit more seasoning. I had a lovely cocktail and we were way too stuffed for dessert so settled for a coffee. The last time I came the coffees came with a little slither of brownie which was delightful. The waiter told us it was something they have on the dessert menu but we were too full to even look. It's not the cheapest restaurant around but the food is lovely. I would definitely recommend.

I often get limited choices on menu's when we eat out- consequently this restaurant was chosen for us due to it's wide and varied vegetarian/vegan options. It was a delight to find that I had as much of the menu (if not more so) to choose from as my husband! We both loved our meals, very fresh and tasty. A tip for visitors - ensure you have cash for a tip. They couldn't take a tip from us on card and there were no cash points in the near vicinity, so we sadly had to leave without providing a tip - which was humiliating. We've asked friends of ours, to drop in a tip next time they pass the Grain Store.
