My brother and I were there for dinner. We first set at the bar for a drink and the barman was really professional, very nice! We had him preparing a couple of gin and tonics to discover.
Then we were escorted to our table. The ambience is really nice, table and seats were comfortable.
The waiting staff really professional and attentive.
Food was good, I had grilled octopus and then a burger as for my brother he had a dish of green asparagus as a started which was really small like 5 small pieces. The waiter should tell the client about the small portion. Then he had a rib-eye, and the meat was really good.
Overall experience was good but not outstanding, apart the barman. Quite overpriced.
I would return but for drinks at the bar only.
Very impressed with this place, started in the bar and then moved into the dining room for a delightful fish dinner. Highly recommend.
One comment for the team to consider - the wine list escalates quite dramatically so only a couple around £40 then suddenly up to £70-80s, and you don’t want to pay that esp on a Rursday night! The £42 wine we had was delicious
The main thing to say about Holborn Dining Room is that the food is fantastic. Yes, the setting is great, the atmosphere is excellent, the wine list highly impressive and the service very good but those are all secondary to the sheer quality of the food. Will be going back again as I want to try everything on the menu (but may just having the same again as it was SO good).
We felt rushed as our orders were taken by an inept waiter who knew nothing about the dishes offered. Service was extremely slow, we waited 45 minutes for our main dish. We are not going back in a hurry.
As part of the beautiful hotel Rosewood Hotel, the food was delicious, service was great and ambience was delightful. Menu has all the English favourites. Our sticky toffee pudding was slightly burn on the top. When we brought it to their attention they didn't charge us for it. Will gladly go again.
Service très aimable, ambiance un peu bruyante sur la terrasse extérieure du fait du passage des voitures
Excellent food and service with no rushing between courses
Overpriced drinks and average food
We had a fantastic time and the food was delicious !
Lovely room. Service was a bit inattentive. Best Scotch egg with an amazing caper relish but the pies were just fine. Sticky toffee pudding tasted a bit too bitter for me.
;P great service, would highly recommend to anyone
Salade de poulet un peu fade mais pie et pâté en croûte délicieux!!!
Excellent all round from our experience in the bar with the superb staff, friendly and knowledgable to the great experience in the restaurant. Great food great service and again friendly efficient staff, we will return.
The location should deliver more than very a basic breakfast. Uninspired and rather ordinary, with zero flair.
The staff are all ‘dressed’ which gives a higher expectation.
First time here - and the last.
We had breakfast - waited 45 mins for Poached Eggs on toast and it turns out that you pay £7 for two eggs and an extra £1 for toast - a complete rip off.
To be fair the bill was reduced by 50% because of the delay but overall this was an experience to forget.
From first greeting to final farewell the service here was friendly and attentive. The ambience and appearance of the dining room was excellent and our banquette table was comfortable and well -spaced. The only thing I felt was that it was a little too low for the table height, but that is a very small issue. Everything about the food and drink service was slick and discreet. Moving on the food, our choices were excellent and we enjoyed each course. We were a little conscious of time, so the fast pace suited us, but if we were on a date we might, perhaps, have preferred a little longer between courses. The only slight, and unimportant issue we had with the food, was that we both felt that the truffle chips were a little under-cooked and hard, especially the large ones, but as there were so many, we were able to work round this without telling the waiting staff. Overall we had a great meal in lovely surroundings and would definitely pass this way again on another London visit.
I eat here quite often for business lunches and was very, very disappointed with the service on my last visit. I ordered a dish I hadn't had before - the Sweetcorn and Chickpea fritters and was quite surprised when the plate arrived to see almonds scattered over the top - as no nuts were listed on the menu as part of the dish description.
I am anaphylactic to nuts and am always very attentive to noticing whether or not nuts are listed as part of a dish, so this was a huge surprise. I asked the waiter to confirm they were only almonds, but he then told me there were also hazelnuts in the sauce.
I let him know I would be unable to eat the dish, and that I was disappointed that the menu doesn't alert the guest to these two nuts being featured as part of the dish and I simply asked for a new plate of plain fritters and broccoli.
This was naturally a very embarrassing thing to happen when on a business lunch, but what made it worse, was that the waiter told me off both when I sent back the plate and when he brought over my new plate - I do not expect to be scalded by staff when at a business lunch with a guest. He tried to claim the fault was mine and that I wasn't taking my own nut allergy seriously, however the fault actually lies with the restaurant for not disclosing this on the menu.
I would have happily overlooked it and am not one to make a fuss, but I was both shocked and embarrassed that the waiter felt it was okay to speak to a guest like that. If the almonds weren't on the plate, I wouldn't have known about hazelnuts being in the sauce and would have had an anaphylactic attack. It was fortunate I raised this, but to be spoke to like a naughty child by a member of staff in front of a guest was shocking.
I will return as the location suits well for press I meet with from a certain magazine, but would never want to be served by him again. I also recommend adapting the description of this dish on the menu to list the two nuts that are featured.
Lovely meal, excellent service and a beautiful setting!
Ambience and the gin bar is worth going to but the food was very standard unfortunately.
Awesome as always 😀 Great beef, the dining room makes me feel like i am in a movie and good service.
Fab decor. Smart yet casual. Great service - attentive and smart.
Having been before, we enjoyed it even more as the food selection is fantastic
Great food with good service. 5 of us for a birthday dinner. Lovely food and very good service. Thanks.
Great place for breakfast with refreshing tea, scrambled eggs, salmon and toast. Service and food excellent, although flat white was not hot enough.
Always enjoyable. Great breakfast selection and lovely venue. Service could have been slightly quicker as we were stuck in a corner, but minor
Daughters birthday meal with parents
Grand-yet-casual feel, accentuated by pleasantly welcoming and relaxed-yet-professional service. Food was good - English classics, done well. Really enjoyed the experience.
It is pricey but the food is delicious and they have great choice of wines and dessert wines! Staff very friendly which makes the overall experience worth it.
Never disappoints food is delicious, friendly helpful staff. Great venue. Expensive but tasty
A great British brasserie, supporting British cuisine and fine dining. Truly wonderful experience was had.
Food was wonderful, particularly the grilled octopus but service was a bit scattered at times. Overall positive experience though.
Beautiful grand room - outstanding service - excellent modern British cuisine and the most incredible traditional pie menu! Exquisite
Great service. Staff were really friendly and welcoming. The food was very good food, cooked well and extremely tasty. We all had pies which were delicious. The cocktails were really good and not too expensive. Would definitely go back.
Lovely atmosphere. Attentive but not over bearing staff. Food tasty. Wine extortionate even for London prices. Delauney better value.
The scotch eggs are the best!!!! Always enjoy the food here but the service can be a little over the top!
Amazing Lamb and Rib Eye. Sticky toffee pudding to die for
Just amazing... not much else to say. Fantastic food, loved the concept of the pie room! Great services
Not quite sure what to make of this place. Lots of business people in suits but also some families with children. And waiters all in fancy dress? They may be trying to evoke memories of the 'inner child' and schooldays. But the food was tasty, I was encouraged to try something new and the portion sizes just right for lunch. The only real let down was the service: our waiter vanished towards the end of the meal so it proved to be a very long wait for the bill. Not good when you have a business colleague with a meeting to get back to!
Good, tasty food and really well presented but portions were quite small and we had to wait a long time for drinks, they arrived after our food.
Food was great but not special. Very pricey. Not much atmosphere for an early lunch. Service was very attentive and fast.
