Food ok, not fabulous. Atmosphere good, especially the bar downstairs. Service friendly, if a little confused. We didn’t get the dessert we ordered, but what we did get was nice.

Pleasant atmosphere. Food good although all 3 main courses too heavy on the salt for our liking.

My experience was very good, however, my partner asked for 2 different types of beer that was on the menu and it was not available. Than we decided to go to a pub instead.

But I really liked the place, the service and the food.

Definitely will come back.

Really loved it. Fresh and delicious food and beautifully prepared. I chose the set menu which was great value. Kids were happy too and their main courses were free which was a bonus.

Have been in the evenings, but this time took the family pre-theatre. Nice not to be stuck with a chain restaurant. Great good for kids and adults, and the kids-eat-free deal was ace.

Despite being a Friday lunchtime the place was almost deserted (apart, alas, from a screaming baby on a nearby table). The staff were inattentive and didn’t seem to care about our experience. No one asked if the food was okay, no one said goodbye or thank you when we left, the waiter tried to remove our starter plates before we had finished...... all pretty poor, especially given the price point and supposed reputation of Hix. Maybe this is why the place was deserted.

Both wines we wanted were ‘off’ - the suspicious side of me thought this was a ploy to upsell (if so, we didn’t fall for it). The food was okay but the starter portion sizes small for the money.

I spend a lot in restaurants and had a higher expectation of Hix. Not a good customer experience. But I guess no one cares....

Good option for a chilled early evening meal (that doesn't require standing in a queue!). Steak was a bit chewy, good wine selection, crab starter was tasty.

Great service. Chateau steak was awesome as was the Fish and chips! HIX IPA top notch. Plus, our last name is also Hix! Maybe we can meet Mark next time!

Great set menu for £30 or so. Very reasonable. Food presented very well and good portions. Took about 10 mins for a waiter to come over and take order. Only complaint was grit in 2 of my clams. Apart from that was a great meal in such a lovely room.

One of our diners was coeliac. The manager spent a lot of time explaining the menu on what dishes would be suitable. She was so knowledgeable on all the dishes on the menu. This was really appreciated during a busy service.

Delicious food - everything. Super fresh and tasty oysters. Best fish bisque (with Pastis) I have EVER eaten. Succulent (and not overcooked) lobster. Home-made ice cream and chocolate sauce - impeccable! Faultless service. What else can I say?

Bar and staff are super. Food is good but not too notch. Had to ask for the air-con to be turned down as people kept coats on. A bit disappointed to be told at 9:50 pm we couldn’t have coffee, after our meal, as the machine had been turned off. To be fair that was remedied immediately but should not be even a consideration!

Consistent is the word I would use to describe Hix. Regardless of which day of the week you go, the time you eat and the food you eat, it's always excellent. One of my go to places for good food!

It was my second time at HIX, and it was lovely. Service is very prompt and attentive, friendly staff and good recommendations. I had the fish of the day and it was delicious, cooked just right and very tasty. My partner's steak was even better - very tender and juicy. We shared a chocolate tart for desert, washed down with port. The only negative point is the wine list - quite pricey by glass and any decent wine is not cheap. All in all, great restaurant.

VERY DISAPPOINTED. Only reason we booked brunch at this location was for the ‘famed’ kedgeree and we arrived to find it wasn’t being served this weekend.... service lame (waitress couldn’t understand half of what we said) bottles of water didn’t show, food mediocre and pricey. Hix clearly going down hill....

We went for a late lunch during the Pride celebrations in London. The restaurant was very quiet but we were able to watch the activities out of the window. The staff were ok and the food tasty. They were not particularly welcoming once they knew we had a timeout voucher and placed restrictions on our choices.

I was disappointed to find that the main courses were nearly all fish. I have used this restaurant in the past for good meat dishes. Originally I used to love their hamburgers, which stopped being served some time ago. The friend I introduced to Hix last week does not like fish so I was very apologetic at this new fishy menu.

The food and service is very good, but some of the prices were ridiculous. £5 for an iced coffee? Asparagus was highlighted as a seasonal special offering. While I knew that the large scallops and asparagus would be £29, I had no inkling that the dish would consist of a few scallops and. ONE or TWO stalks of asparagus, thinly shaved. Insulting diners like that is not a good idea.

Service was good yet the food was average - the beef that I had was a medium rare but it is very chewy. Honestly nothing special which I don’t expect from HIX.
