I went because I thought that we would be able to have the pre theatre menu on the website but when I arrived I was advised that the restaurant didn't do the menu in December, I didn't see that anywhere on the website and I felt that I couldn't leave then.

Hix claim to be family friendly which is why we chose it for our family lunch. And their children’s menu and “under 10s eat free” offer are very good. But the service was terrible, especially for a family. It took an hour and a half before our main courses were served. Of course, our toddler was ready to melt down by then. And the gormless waitresses had no ideas about kids - kept putting lit candles and sharp knives within easy reach of our 2 year old! (Despite continued requests not to). Such a shame as the food was delicious when it eventually arrived. They did take something off the bill to compensate but still very disappointing given the effort they make with the kids menu and the prices they charge.

As usual the food was excellent, as it should be since it isn’t cheap, however on this occasion the service was downright poor. Furthermore I mentioned this early in the meal but they did not take the opportunity to make amends and improve it. As a result I asked for the optional service charge to be removed - something I rarely do - as I feared that otherwise they simply would not have got the point.
It didn’t spoil the evening but it was not comfortable either and would make me think twice about going back; which is a shame because I love the place.

Lovely evening spent celebrating some last minute good news. We booked pretty last minute but luckily as it was a Wednesday evening there were tables available. And we arrived in time for the set menu deal which was good value! The service was lovely and friendly. And the ambience was great for the occassion.

We were so looking forward to going to Hix Soho. I'd been to the Farringdon restaurant and loved it. Overall, we were disappointed. Service was slow and not very attentive. We were at the restaurant early and wondered if the kitchen weren't quite ready...
Bar snacks arrived late, main courses arrived cold (2 out of 4 dishes) and puddings arrived at different times. The manager took the price of two mains off the bill which was nice, but it still didn't really make up for a disappointing visit. Such a shame.

Very friendly welcoming by the receptionist, food was really great. Can recommend the fried oysters and the club steak was perfectly cooked according to our choice. The service unfortunately was not attentive. Waited a long time for the menus and drinks. But we’ll come back. Atmosphere and food convinced.

It’s the 3rd time I have been to HIX and was amazed by the difference to my 2 previous visits. It was empty (appreciate it was a Monday). Food was OK but not to the standard I was expecting. Had the Monkfish curry and it was bland. My guest left most of his starter and main. Took him there to impress but was completely underwhelmed. Maybe it was jut a bad day but with so much choice in London I won’t take the risk of booking again.

The food was good but not as good as we would have thought for the price. It was a pleasant meal over all. This may seem silly but none of their knives were sharp. I ordered the duck and my wife got the steak and none of the three knives we went through could cut either piece of meat. I might go back if I was in the area.
