Beautiful afternoon for a family birthday. A little birthday suprise treat would have been a bonus but we had absolutely nothing to complain about.

Lovely meal at Lussmans this weekend. We arrived 5 mins early and our table wasn’t ready but we were quickly re-seated downstairs. The noise level was high and for our first two courses it was difficult to hear any conversation. Food was delicious! Chicken liver parfait was SO smooth and we each tried a variety of mains. Truffle polenta chips also yummy! Quite pricey but worth it for delicious food and a lovely atmosphere with friends. Looking forward returning!

Have been to Lussmanns on a number of occasions. The menu is always good and a welcome change from regular ‘chain’ restaurants. On this occasion we were running late and had to change booking but without difficulty. Service is friendly. Only downside is acoustics - restaurant gets noisy when full sometimes making it difficult to hear your guests.

Lovely food (had the Steak Frites) cooked perfectly. The Market Vegetables were delicious. A nice, quiet comfortable restaurant. Just wish they had a better Beer option, available in draught too!

We went new years eve and the service was brilliant even though it was packed. We got a great window table so great for people watching. Food was lovely, just right, not too rich or filling. A bit of a wait but absolutely didn't feel like it as the atmosphere was just right. In fact it was good to have digestive time between courses.

Another faultless meal at Lussmans on New Years eve. We had the set menu and it was delicious and great value for money not to mention good portions (not too much, not too little so you can fit in all 3 courses!)
Hertford wouldn't be the same without you, Lussmans

Personally, I think the whole experience with Lussmanns from beginning to end is wonderful. Where, at some places, the fancy decor and satisfying ambience can fool you into thinking that the food is going to be to a high standard, but does not deliver, this is certainly not the case with Lussmanns - you could be sitting on a pile of rubble and still taste their amazing food for what it really is!
This is now my third or fourth visit with my family and we love it every time!
The only criticism I would have is expense - but if this is the going rate of restaurants of this standard, then they're doing no wrong.
I would, without any hesitation, recommend Lussmanns Hertford to family, friends and anyone looking for an evening of dining to be fondly remembered!

My favourite restaurant in Hertford. Let down by my food this time. Management offered on a few occasions to re cook but didn’t want to have my partner waiting for me. Should have checked before cooking. Anyway didn’t spoil the evening. Staff excellent as always. Will definitely go back.

I was lucky enough to be invited to lunch by a supplier, and asked to book the restaurant !
I've had some great meals at Lussmans in the past, so booked a table.
The service at Lussmans is always very good, very welcoming on arrival, and knowledgeable about the menu - you could say this should be expected, but at other restaurants it so often doesn't happen.
This occasion was no exception, friendly, knowledgeable service, food arrived quickly, and beers replenished without having to request.
The Steak Frittes was excellent, I took the recommendation to have it cooked medium-rare, and it was delicious. Simple food you could say, but great quality and taste.

It's easy to see why Lussmans continues to thrive, as other restaurants in Hertford come and go.

Lovely meal. Shepherds pie exquisitely executed as was the honey thyme sponge dessert. And the best waiter I have had for years. Excellent with the kids, insightful and fun. The steak was also flavoursome and beautifully cooked.

Am excellent lunch venue with quiet attentive staff, cosy atmosphere without being too overcrowded with tables.
Excellent fish choices, recommend the House Fish Cake. Efficient service from ordering to table, the staff clearly understand the needs of their diners, nothing is hurried, no request too trivial which gives the whole experience an air of refinement.

Our pre-booked lunch table was ready for us and Norman, our server, greeted us like old friends. He was knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions. Attentive throughout, without pressing, he obviously delights in ensuring that customers get the very best out of their visit. It won't be long before we return.

We both chose the fish and chips and were not disappointed. The fish was moist, succulent and perfectly cooked. The accompanying mushy peas were delicious, with a hint of lemon and great homemade tartare sauce. The shared the poached pear with goats cheese after as we were pretty full and it was the perfect end to our meal.
