Fantastic evening and sublime food. We all had Sirloin steaks and they were cooked to perfection and the tastiest ones ever had. The staff were very helpful and attentive and surprised my mother with a cake and candle for her birthday. Every course was delicious and perfect.The second time we have come up from Brighton to eat at this specific restaurant. Can highly recommend it

Last year we chose Island Grill for our first date and returned as a married couple on the anniversary date this year. We let the staff know and they didn’t disappoint; the food was yummilicious, Sheville and Melissa made us feel extra special, and the chef added a little sweet something to our dessert which was just lovely..

Thank you Island Grill and congratulations to Sheville on his well deserved promotion - well done and stay fabulous!

We have visited this restaurant several times before and based on our most recent visit will not be coming again. Upon arrival, staff stood and stared at us for a good five minutes before we asked if we could be seated, and although our reservation had been confirmed they had no record of it. The food was average. I was told that a tuna steak could only be cooked "pink" or "well done" - there is no in between apparently. Several other issues throughout the night, very disappointing and overpriced given the quality of the service and food. Definitely won't be returning.

We had a great lunch here prior to attending one of the summer Hyde Park music events. The location is really good for Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and the Albert Hall. The choice was wide on the lunch menu, and the food quality was excellent. On our list to use again when in the area.

Our experience ended up being not so good. The food was good when we got it. We ordered cocktails to start and they arrived slowly but were good. We had a great smoked salmon starter, one of us had lamb and other had chicken. Both entrees were tasty and well presented. The service was reasonable to start with but deteriorated as the restaurant got busy. We were ignored for most of our meal, when our entrees arrived we were not asked for another wine, nobody came to ask us if we wished for wine with our meal. In the end I had to go up to the bar and ask the waiter who was washing glasses and putting them away. When we got the bill I noticed that there was a 12 1/2 % service charge added. I noticed from reading the menu that this was optional. I told the junior waiter who brought the credit machine over that I did not wish to pay this service fee due to poor service. After quite a bit of discussion between the waiters they brought the bill back less the service charge. When we left they were silent, did not apologize or respond. We will not be back or we can not recommend this restaurant to others.

Rated ££ - (lower cost) by Opentable but should be £££.
£61 bill for 2persons-2 courses, incl.12.5% grat.
You feel the difference between the two categories as you enter.
At 5:15pm there was one, junior waiter available.....senior waiters came soon after. He couldn’t find our reservation. Quickly provided drinks.
Limited menu. We chose soup (good) and watercress soufflé as starters, followed by super-berger and chips (I was not asked if I preferred the salad alternative to chips) and salmon.
Value for the money is very questionable though the food was tasty and the later service excellent.

We had a horrible experience with the fish and chips. The batter texture and appearance had the look of a corn dog from a fair.

errrrmmm having been here a couple of times, must say i enjoyed my previous visit better! the restaurant is what it sets out to be - a quick fast, casual diner for a simple lunch and the food was good, but the service could have been a lot better...firstly the maitre d (and waiter) sits at a table that is NOT in sightline of the guests! so whenever you want smtg you have go find him. the music was dire (jazz) so has to ask him to change that...no atmosphere at all, which is difficult with too few guests and the area is a bit of a building site right now (local tube Lancaster Gate - is shut...would have been nice if the restaurant or OT had told us that when we booked!) we need good restaurants in this area - devoid of anything decent

I used to eat at the Island Grill many years ago when I lived in the area and although it still holds a lovely ambiance, the food was a little on the disappointing side on this occasion. My colleague had a burger that he said was quite dried out and I had the fish and chips but unfortunately the fish was well over cooked and the batter was done to a crisp!
I will return in the hope that this was a one off experience.

The restaurant is well located and the service is great but is far too overpriced for what it is. Our starters were mediocre and overcooked and the wine list is extremely poor. The mains were very good.

My wife really enjoyed the mushroom and fig risotto. My duck salad was a bit sparse of actual duck, I expected more for 14.50, but it tasted ok. The happy hour mojitos were nice. The service was very good. We would definitely eat here again.
