My wife and I went for lunch for her birthday on the 11/10/18 at Hertford, as my wife does not eat any type of meat and it seemed to have a good choice of fish Lussmanns seamed suitable. Unfortunately Pollock, Cod or shell fish is not a fish either of us would choose so the only suitable fish was Plaice. As it comes with Prawns we asked for the plaice without Prawns and I believe it was baked. Regret the fish was unseasoned and quite tastes as well as floating in brown greasy liquid which left an unpleasant taste.
I had the soup that had to be returned as it was cold, once heated it was good. Main course I had chicken leg which was well cooked & tasty but was hardly a meal on its own, fortunately I ordered mashed potato with it that helped soak up the liquid the chicken was floating in.
The bread was excellent & waitress was very pleasant. Regret we are very unlikely to go back or recommend to friends or family.

Whilst the a la carte is very good, we generally choose from the £17.50 2 course menu for value. The deep fried sprat, the fish cakes and shepards pie are all delicious.

Attracted by new Autumn Menu, especially the Honey & Thyme pudding, which had sold out.
The poached pear was fantastic (but I'm definitely going back for the Honey Pudding!)

Went for a romantic meal and found the first seating, upstairs, a bit loud and right by the door and walk way. We were moved without fuss, and found downstairs so much more comfortable. The waitress was really good, recommended the wine and must say it was a great choice.
The food was awesome, would definitely go again and yes, would definitely recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

As always Lussman's comes up trumps - friendly and knowledgeable staff who know when to intervene and when to leave you alone. The food is excellent - unfussy, tasty and good value. The fixed price menu available between noon and 7pm is even better value for money if you want a lunch or early evening meal. The drinks menu also has some interesting alcoholic and non-alcoholic listings. The early part of the day can be quieter whilst later on it can be very busy indeed - it's all about what type of occasion suits. It's very sociable and welcoming even at the busiest of times.

Disappointed with menu. One of our party found a hair in her chic mouse! Yes it was replaced but not what you want to experience.
Had an irritating fly all evening around the table too! We’re seated downstairs which isn’t very ambient.
Not a very inspiring visit. Has gone down since it opened.

Great flavoursome dishes. I love Lussmann’s for its constant high quality of food. The menu is not huge but every dish seems excellent. It is really nice to have such a great independent restaurant in Hertford. The service was fantastic with the waiter being very helpful and attentive. He also made our children (and us!) laugh. Keep up the great work!

Lussmans is simply a great restaurant, the food tastes great, the service is brilliant and if I could go once or twice a week then I would.

Highly reccommend the Cod cheeks for starter and the Plaice in caper butter with brown shrimp,

Never had a bad meal here. Although we were seated downstairs when we wanted to be upstairs the manager explained situation. Downstairs soon filled up and was as atmospheric as upstairs. Great air con by the way. Food was delicious and they take as much care with desserts as they do with mains. Staff are friendly but not in a forced way. Such a great place.

We went with friends whom we hadn't seen for a while. I had asked for a table on ground floor level and that was what we were given. Two of us had the set menu, two chose from the other menu. The food was delicious. Service was good. Prices were good for the set menu, a bit more for the a la carte, but no more than one would expect. My only complaint - if you go before a certain time, you are expected to be out in 2 hours so the restaurant can use the table for other diners. This is a bit of a pain - we were actually there 2 and 1/2 hours because we had 3 courses, and they didn't try and make us leave, but maybe they would have done if another group had booked our table for later. That's the only reason I haven't given them 5 stars.

We visited Lussmans for a business lunch and were very impressed with the quality of food, notably the Hunter's Linguine and Steak and Frites. All excellently cooked, simple and very flavoursome. The service was personal and friendly throughout and there was a very good and concise wine list which was reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and it is consistantly the best eatery in Hertford.

The kitchen is open to the dining area which is fine but it contained staff who appeared to have a personal dislike for the plates etc. that they were clattering.
