Great atmosphere and food. We had three people with gluten allergies and the staff and chef were amazing.

Good food (especially the dessert choices, the Oreo cheesecake was superb) and nice selection of cocktails. Service was just ok on a busy Friday evening, the staff could have being a bit more attentive. Unfortunately the place was quite noisy. We literally have to shout over each other to be heard. There is no physical separation between the bar and the restaurant. Meaning the DJ playing music filtered through into the restaurant completely. Feels like you’re eating in a nightclub which kind of ruins the atmosphere of a nice chilled out Friday night dinner.

That's a shame because it's an excellent place...

Great restaurant, really classy vibe, and great food. I went for my birthday and the service was brilliant- I was even given a surprise marshmallow brownie with a candle. Would recommend coming here for occasions or general catch ups.

Would recommend the sharing meat box, all very good.
Service was very attentive and the cheesecake was divine.
Asked for sweet potato fries and got normal but not a big deal

We’re not sure what happened with the service but wondered if the wait staff who took our order then finished her shift and we were forgotten about! Starters came fairly quickly (very mediocre) but then we waited a full hour for our mains! We also ordered more drinks which took about 45 minutes. The place was only half full so no excuse really and once other tables who arrived well after us were getting served, we finally asked about our mains and cocktails. Still nothing happened so we asked again. At this stage one of the wait staff decided to explain to us how restaurants work: the starters come first, then the mains come after...wow, thank you, we had no idea! Anyway, eventually the mains came, we were hungry and annoyed at this point. My salmon was actually very nice. My friend’s bass was extremely dry and overcooked. Overall a very disappointing experience and supremely overpriced for an American-style diner with blah food and slow service.

The milk that came with our tea had gone off. We asked if we could have fresh milk. They then bought back new hot milk. We asked if we could then have cold fresh milk and it took a long time for them to bring this new milk.

The food itself was very nice.

Some of the menu items had changed. Hash browns have got smaller and some of the juices in particular the 'Green' Juice recipe had changed. I prefer the old version.

Whilst the service wasn't bad it was a busy night and they definitely should have had more servers available. It's a busy place with a loud, vibrant atmosphere. A good night but nothing special if I'm being honest.

Lovely place and staff. Good food. The only negative point was the noise, almost impossible for us to have a conversation due to large groups having professional christmas dinners

I read a review of top breakfast restaurants in Shoreditch and Based on the review, thought this would be a small, independent American-style diner. In fact it’s the restaurant section of a vaguely boutique hotel.

My pancakes tasted rather hard and stale, not soft and fresh (I did ask our waiter if they were fresh rather than from the buffet and she said they were freshly cooked). Having had pancakes, syrup and bacon all over the world these were some of the most average.

My smoothie was very good, my wife’s not fresh, but from a bottle.
Coffees were small, but good.

Overall nothing awful, but this is not a top Shoreditch breakfast destination in my opinion.

Hoxton Grill is and always will be my go-to.

The greeting is always warm and welcoming and the meal is always good; never had a bad meal there. My friend went for the Sunday lunch which was a decent size and looked delicious.

I highly recommend The Hoxton Grill any time and any day of the week.

The Sunday roast is excellent. Delicious rib eye beef and cauliflower cheese. However desserts (brownie and chocolate torte) were quite average. Buzzy atmosphere means the main dining area can get very noisy. The atrium is much quieter, providing there aren’t any large groups.

I’m not someone to write reviews often, but I felt compelled to do so, because my meal was just that terrible. I Had arguably the worst steak in my life in this restaurant. It was so tough I could not even finish 1/4 of it and felt terrible afterwards. Barely any seasoning. I would pick school dinners over it any day. The service for the most part was poor. Grabbing a waiters attention was a task in itself. A positive would be that they were very attentive with allergies, but that is a given in most restaurants today and it looks like a good place for work drinks. For the price I certainly wouldn’t recommend, Blacklock restaurant is just down the road and it is infinitely better! In hindsight I truly regret paying for my meal, because after I left I did not have the feeling of being satisfied but that I had been robbed.

I went there three times and it has always been just perfect. The service, food, location, everything is amazing. The first time I went there for a cocktail with a friend. Cocktails are wonderful! Then I went there for a Sunday Roast and the third time for breakfast with my boyfriend. They also have lots of gluten free amazing cakes!! I recommend the polenta cake, the brownie and the carrot cake. I absolutely love this place!

Best spot for dinner before partying, but not for a quiet dinner (at least Friday and Saturday evening)

We had lunch with my husband and 85 year old Mum on Saturday for lunch. As soon as we stepped into the Hotel and Restaurant there was a buzz about the place. The whole experience was excellent - the staff were very courteous, friendly and attentive and the food was delicious, we would definitely return to The Hoxton Grill.

HOXTON GRILL REVIEW

I was not quite sure what to expect as I had previously read mixed reviews. However, I was pleasantly surprised. My companion and I had chosen to eat a late lunch (4pm) and therefore I expected the restaurant to be empty. As it was a Friday, I can only assume that traditional eating patterns have changed for many guests as it was fairly busy in the bar area. The private dining area didn’t have any customers until much later. The ambience was warm and friendly. The meals were quite substantial in size. I had roast salmon with baby beets and a side order of coleslaw (which was not smothered in thick mayonnaise – therefore light and crunchy). My companion had ribs. The choice of wines by the glass, carafe and bottle was extensive. The staff were very attentive without being overpowering. We were served with water almost immediately which is always a welcome indication of good service. My companion asked me if I would dine there again and to repeat my words “yes….in a heartbeat”. It really was an enjoyably pleasant experience and environment.

A fab spot for brunch.
Great menu.
Not overly busy at 11am but the Hoxton still has a buzz about it.
A wonderful female restaurant manager who was so helpful and friendly.
Will definitely be back soon.

Enjoyed the ambience and food really good. We had an issue with 2 very badly behaved children near us and had to move table but this was dealt with brilliantly by the staff. Apparently the restaurant gets a lot of families with small children for Sunday brunch - I would definitely return but not on a Sunday!

I was disappointed with my evening, it feels like you have placed tables in the middle of a club for a number of reasons.
On arrival there were drunk guests sitting in our booth that had to be removed. There were countless times drinks were spilt on our table as people were going through the middle of the restaurant to the toilet.
The noise level at 8pm was so loud we couldn’t have a conversation across the table without shouting.

The service we received was terrible, they paid no attention to our table and we had to get up and look for our wine bottles after waiting for 20 minutes for our glasses to be refilled. There were 2-3 staff attending to one table of roughly 12 guests which took over the focus from the rest of the tables.
