Gnocchi was perfection as was the steak dish. Ingredients are fresh and the menu has delicious and innovative items. Service is impeccable. Ambiance is upscale French bistro with subtle lighting...loved it.

We were delighted to eat at Little Social. Very friendly service, great menu and most importantly delicious food. My husband loves burgers and stated that it was the best burger he’d even eaten. The herb bread was amazing too. We will definitely visit again the next time we’re in London.

Husband and I went to Little Social whilst down in London for a special birthday. Booked dinner for the Friday evening after quite a bit of deliberation, but we were certainly not disappointed. Managed to book a table easily, although the restaurant was not quiet. Great setting, cosy and candle-lit, but with tunes and a good atmosphere. Staff were attentive and friendly, but not overbearing. The food was delicious, we had 3 courses each which were all fabulous. Standout dishes were the poached egg starter and our mains - the lamb and the poached halibut. Really lovely evening and well worth a visit, loved it!

A well-created fixed price menu for a reasonable price (3 courses for £25.00) considering the freshness of ingredients and how well prepared everything was. I would recommend this place to everyone who's looking for a quiet, local, and fine dining just by Regent Street as well as any special occasions and dates.

Disappointing. Dishes failed to match the menu. A warm salad was served cold, so had to be sent back. It was as if the kitchen thought we wouldn’t notice. Poor quality desserts.

So disappointing. Been there many times before and always happy with the food and service. This time booked for lunch. Arrived and the restaurant was almost empty. In fact three people plus us. The manager (chap in a suit) was engaged in a conversation with another staff member at the check in desk and made no attempt to acknowledge us as we arrived. After standing next to him for two or three minutes another member of staff came over to greet us as she could see we were being ignored. She then attempted to get the managers attention to check us in. No luck as he also ignored her and continued his conversation. Eventually she took us in to the restaurant and basically said we could sit where we wanted. I then asked the waiter for some assistance with the wine choice. He said he didn’t know anything about wine and would ask the sommelier to come over. 20 minutes later the ‘chap in the suit’ came over as he had clearly been extremely busy! His suggestion of wine was ok but he steered us towards an expensive selection. The food arrived and it was ok at best.
I have eaten at several Jason Atherton locations across London, Dubai an New York. This was by far the worst dining experience I have had.
I hate complaining and have never written a restaurant review before but for £110 for a main course for two and a 500 ml carafe of wine this was a dreadful experience.

Somewhat disjointed experience, which at this level and price point is not really acceptable. We waited a very long time for any service for an initial drinks order. Then we waited in excess of 30 minutes between starters and mains. On every occasion we had to work to flag a waiter. When we ordered a second bottle of wine with the mains, necessitated by the long wait, it wasn't cold enough so we didn't really get to enjoy it with food as it was away on ice for ages and we had to ask for it to be brought to the table. Despite flagging these issues, which I consider serious in a restaurant of this calibre, no real apology was made and nothing was done to reflect the very unsatisfactory nature of the evening on the bill. For a bill of in excess of £250 for two I expect much more and Little Social are complacent if they think this is good enough!

Excellent experience, per usual. On this occasion I dined alone and I enjoyed my evening thoroughly. The service was charming from start to finish and my meal perfectly delicious. I had a lovely glass of Krug and canapé to start, a warming and smooth Jerusalem artichoke veloute, and a lovely root vegetable salad. I look forward to my next visit!

I’ve had two delicious meals at this resto. Unfortunately this third one was not very good. Cold roast food, undercooked vegetables, stodgy pudding. ‘Chicken with pear’ doesn’t mean literally a piece of cold, raw pear on the plate by the chicken, next to some gravy. I don’t know whether the chef has changed or it was a bad night in the kitchen but it was disappointing. The staff tried to sort it out but not terribly well, although they are all nice people. At these prices you expect really quite good food of totally reliable quality. I’ll give this restaurant another chance because on two other occasions it was great - hence the third visit.

Disappointing actually. Been to pollen street social many times and always excellent, little social - not so much. Food was good but not excellent. Waiter was good but unfriendly. Toilets were surprisingly very dirty. Overall felt like poor value for money. Would go back to PSS but not this restaurant.

We ordered cocktails and then ordered our food and wine to go with it. The wine arrived before the cocktails, which we were not half way through when the food was brought. We had the feeling that everything was being rushed to get the table free again. Given the prices they really should get the service right. Won't be going back.
