Lovely food but service let the place down.
The food was very good. At the beginning was a bit slow because the restaurant was full, but in general the service was good as well. Definitely I would comeback next time in London.
Terrible, patronising and slow service. 40mins to get drinks. Waiter repeatedly told off the female members of the party, shouting ‘ladies’ at them intermittently. Charred, flavourless, inedible steaks. Most of the meat was leftover, on a table of steak lovers. The only positive was the oysters, which were delicious. But the whole experience was a complete let down. Won’t be trying another Hix after this awful visit.
Robust flavours in dishes hot and cold that were very well executed. Relaxed but efficient service. Terrific design touches all add to the feeling of being in an authentic, customer-centred restaurant.
If you want a good steak in a more relaxed atmosphere than a stuffy businessman's restaurant then I can recommend Hix. The staff were friendly, engaged and knowledgeable and the steak was very good and expertly cooked. I don't write many reviews but I was impressed enough to bother writing a review.
Super food - loved the crayfish and also the steak tartare. Bar staff very helpful and efficient - super evening all round.
Great food and great service! Been to HIX several times and never fails to deliver. Not the cheapest but don't mind paying up for high quality ingredients and excellent customer service
The food was great, the service was good and the overall experience was really good
Hix has gone to close to the top of my list I 2 experiences. It’s a great restaurant with first class food and service.
Excellent food, good, non-intrusive service able to answer questions when asked. Cocktails to die for. My favourite restaurant actually.
Service was abominable. It over half an hour to take our order, even for drinks. An hour and 20 minutes later, we had finished our drinks and still no food. When my main arrived it was wrong. They took mine away to fix but not that of my friend who then had the choice of eating her food before me or waiting for it to go cold. The front of house manager did take my main off the bill but that didn't a difference to the overall experience.
Very good steak and overall one of our favourite restaurants in London.
Early dinner oysters and fizz before another event. Sat at the bar, and had a selection of amazing oysters, with a really nice English sparkling wine. Service was attentive and very professional. Was only going to stay for 1 glass, but so nice decided to stay longer.
Slow service, oysters and steak were good. Lamb a little overdone.
Fantastic steaks. Really helpful waiting staff and if the restaurant had been full, no doubt a great atmosphere.
Brilliant food and service. We went on a Saturday which meant the restaurant was quiet and meant we could ask the brilliant manager about the produce and menu design. This was one of the best restaurant experiences I have had in London.
Amazing service, very attentive restaurant manager,
The service was excellent. Was my partners birthday and they really looked after us. Food was excellent, great steak and I had delicious lemon sole. Highly recommended.
Just awful (or no) service throughout. Has been better at lunch sometimes, but has been indifferent in the past as well. Don’t know why I kept bringing people, and will now stop. Shame, there’s not much near our office for clients, but we’ll find something else.
Great Place, food and service. Wonderful afternoon business lunch.
Too warm. Paper tablecloths. Amateurish staff. Undercooked bloody chicken. Manager said he would show the chicken to the chef but then allowed a waiter to put it in the bin. Then was evasive. Had to demand it was removed from bill. Extremely disappointing.
Excellent service and a really nice venue.
The food was very good although a touch pricey. But would definitely return for a special occasion
Alex and Ardin were magnificent!!!
We had the set lunch which is extremely good value. Both had asparagus followed by fish & chips. Very satisfied. An excellent venue for lunch. Thoroughly recommended.
Really enjoyed our visit, great food, attentive friendly service and good wine
Fabulous! We particularly enjoyed the fresh oysters, the deep fried oysters, the Hix Fix cocktail, the lobster and steak salad, and the cherry pie. Excellent, friendly and attentive service. Thank you!
a lovely experience and fantastic staff, food hit the spot
Firstly, the service is phenomenal! We were helped through the menu & all the steak cuts by a waiter & waitress who clearly knew what they were doing.
The food was cooked to perfection; pork cracklings were tasty and well portioned, both steaks were cooked to our likings and practically melted in the mouth. Even the coffee afterwards was perfect!
Staff went above and beyond to make our anniversary a special one by sending over congratulatory chocolates without prompt!
Id definitely be dining here again. Thank you HIX
First of all the steak we had was perfect, the staff were lovely and diligent it was just a rather unfortunate combination of events that led to a 3 star on the food and ambience. I had made a request beforehand for an Old fashioned to be served with dessert for my fiancées birthday which was well made and delivered as a surprise as requested. Unfortunately While we were there an event was on, which would in fairness to Hix meant automatically it was noisier than usual, not a problem in itself but combined with a photographer taking flash pictures regularly a bit irritating and disruptive to what was otherwise a nice evening. The second thing was the oysters, I am a big fan and Mersea natives and rock are a favourite. The way they were served was still in the full shell, unfortunately this meant they were still attached to the top of the lid and not loosened from the bottom shell. Not something I have come across in any other restaurant serving oysters. It made the job that much more fiddly and messy and left some waste on both sides of the shell. If that could be addressed I would only have positive things to say.
Great food and service. Highly recommended.
This restaurant is conveniently located near Farringdon Station on a quiet side road. The decor and ambiance is very nice. The food was nice and there was a varied menu, although you would struggle for choice if vegetarian (we are pescatarian fortunately!). We felt the service let down the whole experience however and not what we expected for the price. The staff were not rude, but also not friendly and we waited a long time for drinks etc, and gave up waiting for our desert order to be taken.
Great place for a lively relaxed evening meal out. Limited menu but what they serve is good
Excellent food, relaxed atmosphere and great service.
Unfortunately they run out of oysters so we had to leave as we went to this restaurant for the oysters specifically. It was quite a disappointing customer experience although the staff was very kind.
A great place for a late lunch. Starters were great, but my husband's main course chop was rather overdone. Desserts were fab!
Although the wine was delicious, we felt it was rather expensive.
The service was friendly and excellent
The food was fantastic but what made the night was the people, fantastic cocktails and chat behind the bar and a brilliant server for dinner. A gem of a place that I will definitely be heading back to
Very good seasonal food at a good price, we particurly enjoyed the oysters and steak pie
Having eaten at this branch of Hix many times before I was deeply disappointed with the experience on this occasion. The service was close to non-existent, to the extent that a bottle of wine remained unopened on the table for wont of a member of staff to uncork it. The food was acceptable but not great, and the noise level unconducive to normal conversation. Overall far below the standard I’d come to expect.
Good food as you expect at Hix and with their prices-smoked salmon excellent and huge shared steaks.Heritage tomato salad rather uninspired compared to elsewhere.Sadly a very very noisy big table with a very shouty woman spoiled the evening but that can happen anywhere although management should probably have intervened.
We've eaten here many times. Great for a business dinner, a celebration, a 'can't-be-bothered-to-do-the-washing-up' slap-up Sunday lunch, and a family treat. Friendly, well-informed staff, great cocktails, good wine list that is sensibly organised by price and delicious seasonal food. Good deals as well, including a BYOB on a Monday with no corkage.
