Majoring in delicious fresh seafood but the steaks were equally good. Something for everyone.
I personally loved the Monk Fish Curry served with little pakoras and a flatbread. Save a space for the delicious little truffles at the end of the meal which were awesome.
Good wine list with a price point to suit most pockets.
Loved the strange artworks dotted around the main dining room. Definitely interesting.
And finally a real bonus we actually saw the chef as well.

Service was poor, had to search for service rather than them being attentive and on the call. Snacks and Starters were good, the cockal popcorn is amazing!! Steaks were very poor, temperature was wrong and were not tender or tasty. I love steaks and had never eaten in HIX before, heard great things so expectations were high, unfortunately felt overall it was poor. Sirloin on the bone was not on the bone there was a slither of a bone and it was cook rare rather than medium rare. The pichana was chewy and again under cooked. Wine saved the day, was very good but at £65 a bottle it should be.

Wouldn’t go back unless I wanted a beer and some cockal popcorn.

I love Marks Bar its always a vibrant place to be, we got to the table around 15 minutes later than planned and were told we literally had 1hr 15 mins till they wanted the table back, we should have gone elsewhere to be honest because the whole thing was so rushed, the food came before our drinks even arrived and it was literally heaped on us to the finish, will go to Marks Bar but will eat elsewhere in future !

Really good, but not as good as my super high expectations. Love the bar downstairs, the restaurant didn't have quite the same vibe. Monkgish curry was really good, but pram cocktail was very salady and too big for a starter plate for my tastes.

First time I have been back to Hicks Soho for a couple of years, the welcome from staff very friendly, professional and informative. The roast cod and cauliflower was divine and my guest's fish and chips was simply 'epic'..and she was Italian. The martini's in the down stairs bar were some of the best I've had - thoroughly recommend.

Great food - the cherry pie for dessert was amazing! Went with the kids and although child friendly - felt a bit awkward when we first went in. Children’s main courses were free because we booked before 6pm. It’s an ideal place to go if catching a show in the west end...

I like Hix. Food was delicious. Only complaint would be they advise that you have 1.5 hours for the table before 6.30pm so we felt very rushed until we realised the place was really quiet and we were not going to get asked to leave but nevertheless felt the waitress was very 'on' us to finish each course etc so I've marked it down for that.

Five of us went for a late Sunday lunch prior to a theatre trip. We had booked a table for five. All sunday lunches (beef and chicken), were sold out, as was the lobster. As two of us were non-fish eaters we had little choice. The chicken escalope was burnt on the underside, and dry and my child could have cooked better. Crab pasta were small portions. Restaurant was pretty empty but food too an eternity to come. My child could have cooked and presented better. Suspect Head chef had gone home? 4.15pm table? Very expensive and unimpressed.

Overall a decent restaurant, went here after the theatre on a Saturday for my girlfriend's 24th birthday.

Positives: food very enjoyable, interesting decor, good wine list separated via pricing brackets.

Negatives: service friendly but a bit disorganised; was offered champagne on arrival for my girlfriend's birthday that was insinuated as a gift, but had to pay for it. We couldn't finish our admittedly very tasty mains, so asked for both our steaks and a side to be put into a doggy bag to take home. Girlfriend's steak thrown away and not bagged up. £200 for two including service and one bottle of average priced wine. If you're paying that much, you expect excellence and this was merely good.

Service was great but the quality of the food and the ambience let this restaurant down. My friend ordered a medium rare Club Steak which was served very well done and resembled charcoal. The staff did ensure another steak was cooked but this took 25 minutes to arrive and by then I had already finished my main course. The cost of the Club Steak was taken off the bill which was a pleasant gesture. However, if HIX struggle with cooking a medium rare steak there is something very wrong in the kitchen. On the plus side the waiting staff and manager were very friendly and efficient. The ambience was let down by very low levels of lighting which meant I had to use the torch on my phone to read the menu. If you like eating in a cave, and you like over-cooked steak, then this is the place for you.

My fiance's 60th birthday dinner, just for the pair of us, we loved HIX at Browns, so wanted to try the Soho restaurant. Not quite the same ambience but service was just as excellent. Food was of an excellent quality, just as we had to come to expect from HIX. Great little touches like putting happy birthday in Chocolate on my fiance's dessert. Wine list was good, if slightly over-priced, but not ridiculously so. We had a very enjoyable evening and will be back.
