Fantastic fish and chips. They were delicious, a light batter and succulent flaky fish.

Food was excellent except for the steak frites - steak a bit chewy. Very friendly staff. Good atmosphere.

Great food, well presented in a good environment. Couldn't fault it to be honest

The burger was amazing, as was the prawn Liguini :)

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.

Very tasty food and cocktails. Excellent service and menu & specials explained fully. Very attentive. Great conversation with our neighbouring table. Only criticism on our 3 course meal with house cocktail and house wine was the steak was a bit expensive compared to the rest of the menu.

It was my wife`s 80th birthday lunch, overall everything was good, but I was let down by cheese board, when it was served it came on the plate with 4 biscuits and the Chedder wedge was approximately 75mm long and 10mm thick, the Blue cheese was small than that, I paid £5.50 for the portion, which I feel was NOT value for money, I complained to the Manager when I paid my bill, his comment was that is how it comes in from the supplier and they were expensive, the reason I did not complain when it was served, was it was a special occasion and I did not want to spoil it for my wife and children, Would we come back, yes but avoid the cheese board, although it always rounds off my meals.

Had the before seven menu, so being a regular I knew what to expect. Always good value. Small criticism , my companion had the goats cheese and onion salad, and one of the onions was tough as it appeared to be the skin, this should’ve been thrown away

I have never had a bad meal in Lussmans. The menu is small but the food is done to an exeptional standard, my partner who is very fussy always finds something he likes. It's not cheap but isn't ridiculously expensive either. Perfect for special occasions. What makes Lussmans stand out is their staff, they are always really friendly and will go out of their way to make sure you are enjoying your meal and the experience. I will definitely keep going to this restaurant and can't recommend it enough.
