Covid restrictions do affect the ambience and clearly serving yourself from a side table keeps staff safe but it impacts on the enjoyment.
That said it was lovely to eat out safely with family members. Service was attentive and the food was delicious. Charging nearly £4 for each side dish is expensive as the portion only serves one person maybe that could be looked at.

Beautiful courtyard dining with plenty of shade out of the hot sun. Service was fantastic with all staff wearing face masks. When food was brought to the table it was placed at the side for guests to help themselves to avoid serving staff getting too close.
Even with a vulnerable person in our party we had a lovely Covid stress free Sunday lunch. The food was fantastic. I highly recommend a visit.

We enjoyed a magnificent dinner in the courtyard. It was our first restaurant experience since we emerged from lockdown and was up to Lussmanns’ usual high standard of excellence. The hygiene and service protocol was strictly adhered to in a friendly and unobtrusive manner. Nothing less than you’d expect from this popular, professionally run restaurant.

Love Lussmans. Lovely food, excellent value for the quality if you have the lunch set menu, only wish is that they would change the menu more frequently !

A fabulous first experience of eating out since lockdown started in March. Having not been out I was a little nervous, but there was no need to worry. The safety precautions put in place were excellent and I felt safe throughout. We took part in the “eat out to help out” scheme making the set menu very reasonable. The food was amazing quality and very tasty and the service impeccable. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our first visit since lockdown. The food and service were excellent and the restaurant has given a lot of thought how to manage with the new rules. We sat inside which was lovely and the outside was buzzing

It was a totally relaxing and enjoyable experience. Went with three friends and there was no anxiety about spacing and the food was delicious. They had come forty miles away and we decided there and then we would do it again in the next few weeks.

Every aspect of our lunch was outstandingly good, so good in fact that we easily forgot the crisis that we are all experiencing . The high quality of the food and wine was paralleled by our good fortune in being able to enjoy the meal al fresco - I feel sure that the management at Lussmans arranged this too for us! A thousand thanks to all concerned.

The set up is really good and the outside seating is lovely, but the portion sizes are really small and my fish was overcooked so in summary, I thought it was great service but not great value for money as the prices here are not cheap

Lovely to get back to eating out and Lussmanns was a great place to start. We were made to feel very welcome and safe with the Covid changes. The service was excellent and the food well presented and delicious. We ate outside in the delightful courtyard garden.

It was my anniversary meal with wife the service was different obviously because of covid I know we have to be careful but in all fairness think we should be paying less for this service and this restaurant is very expensive on drink

As usual a lovely dinner at Lussmans! We were early and seated in the courtyard! I went for set menu, goats cheese and nectarine salad and the steak, my other half fish and chips and a Jaffa cake our. Despite me having the set and him not, they still only charged for the pud under the set menu, nice! Service was great as always and the courtyard is so pretty! All perfectly fine with the self distancing measures!! Go and support a local restaurant!!

This was our first meal out since we went into lockdown on 14th March so, understandably, we were a little nervous. We decided to lunch at our favourite Lussmans restaurant and booked a table in the Courtyard where we sat in the sunshine. The Sanitiser was on a table at the entrance, all of the waiters wore visors and we were greeted outside. Tables were placed well apart and we felt very comfortable straight away. The cutlery, glasses and plates were placed at one end of the table. Then the wine, water and plated food were placed at one end and we served ourselves. We helped the waiter at the end of each course by stacking our plates. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and it was obvious just how much care and thought had gone into making everything safe for customers. Lussmans Harpenden is still one of our favourite restaurants and we will go back soon.

Having been in February and had a wonderful time, great food, service and atmosphere we decided to book again for my partners birthday. Menu choice wasn’t great with no flexibility on the dishes, waiters switched part way through service, no atmosphere. Over priced, service charge added but minimal service involved due to COVID. Fish was bland and steak was tough. No notice taken from the booking comment 40th birthday. Hugely disappointing

Service was excellent , my party’s food was excellent. I had a vegetarian paella stuffed pepper was a little tasteless with tofu that was not seasoned but crumbed well. Need a bit more taste in the veggie food please .
Wine was lovely .
Noise from pub next door , possibly football on.
Would return if veggie food was different , don’t want burgers It salads either , thanks .

Despite Covid, all the food is the same excellent quality. Staff were attentive, wore PPE face shields and left all food, drinks, menus (disposables) to the side of our table so no contact closer than 1.5m. Hand sanitizer on arrival and choice to sit outside or inside. Tables well spaced but the ambience was still there, perhaps a little less noise level than usual but we enjoyed that!
So glad they have managed to keep going through these uncertain times, we will not be hesitating coming back soon.
