We are currently closed due to the national coronavirus outbreak until further notice.

We have not experienced any cases throughout any of our restaurants however our staff and customers must be kept safe in line with government advice. This decision wasn’t taken lightly.

The government is currently advising everybody to avoid hospitality establishments so the demand for tables has become unsustainable.

I am deeply thankful and appreciative for your support since opening our first Lussmanns in 2002 and look forward to a world after covid19.

Should you need to make contact for any reason re Lussmanns I can be emailed here : andrei@lussmanns.com

Really nice early evening meal at Lussmanns highlights were the sprats and cod cheeks. Also great that you can order good value wine in a caraf. My only negative is that our waitress told us we needed to order an extra side dish when we didn’t. Brittle on the chocolate mousse was also crystallised and not hard. Apart from that, I’d be back!

We were greeted very nicely when we arrived and the service throughout was excellent. All three of us enjoyed our lunch. It was too noisy only because of a man at the next table who deafened all of us - not Lussmanns' fault at all.

Had a nice evening, the restaurant has a nice feel to it, a cosy atmosphere. Staff were helpful and friendly. Food tasted good, but I was disappointed with the small portion size of both the starter (goats cheese) and main (monkfish).

We had a lovely meal on Saturday night. The restaurant was fully booked, but the service was fast and with lovely cheerful staff.
The Monkfish was the most delicious meal I have had in many months. Well done to the chef.

Yet another brilliant meal at Lussman's! I think it might be my favourite restaurant ever - great for a date night, meal with friends or celebration dinner. The staff are always so lovely and welcoming, the restaurant decor is lovely and the food is always brilliant. Even better that it's sustainable dining!

Friendly service, tasty food, good value...what's not to like? We had the set lunch and loved the flavours and the freshness of ingredients. Unpretentious good food; just what we wanted. Some disturbance from a faulty alarm at the bank next door that was having work being done, but that wasn't the restaurant's falut, and the manager did his best to get them to sort it out. Nice unprompted gesture of a portion of ice-cream with a candle on it when we mentioned my 85 year old mum's birthday.

We had the set lunch which has several choices. The Shepherds Pie was particularly good on a cold day! Nice that they have a thick curtain at the door to stop draughts every time someone enters or leaves. Kept the water jug refreshed without having to ask. Service and food all excellent.

We ate at Lussmans to celebrate my partner's birthday. He went to school in Hertford and has been wanting to go to Lussmans ever since he was a teenager and walked past on his way to and from school every day over 20 years ago...he was not disappointed.
The service we received was fantastic, the atmosphere is relaxed and not too noisy, but even on a Thursday evening was still vibrant. The food was second to none (testament to this is the fact that my partner had a dessert- which he never does. His argument was that because the rest of the food had been so good, he wanted to try the desserts too). Staff were all very knowledgeable about the menu and offered my partner a great recommendation for his main course when asked.
Definitely recommend for anyone celebrating a special occasion.

Having dined at three other Lussmanns restaurants several times, I didn't feel the Hertford restaurant was quite up to the usually extremely high standard. As usual the food was very good, the service was good and attentive but the atmosphere was not quite there.

We ate here before going to the theatre. We opted for the set two course menu and had as our main course steak frites. We chose an additional vegetable of spring greens as it was only served with frites and also an additional sauce for the steak. It was all very very nice. For dessert I had the sticky toffee pudding and my husband had the apple crumble. Both were lovely and the service throughout was excellent.

I had been annoyed at being interrupted during a meeting by Lussmans to ask me to confirm my booking. When I called back there was a recorded message but no capacity to leave a confirmation. I gave up after two attempts and then was emailed to be asked to confirm my booking. The food was OK, the service was over-soliticitous except that when you actually wanted something you had to get up and find the staff. But our real objection was being charged 67p for two very small bits of bread. We had both ordered the mackerel pate which came with an inadequate amount of bread. It’s this greedy, mean-spirited attitude that has ensured we’ll go elsewhere when meeting for lunch again.

Very friendly .. the service was on point .. the food was amazing.. other drinks are available (that aren't on menu) so you will need to ask if they serve a drink you like. (They also have a House special menu that they will come round and tell you and show you what's available). We went on a Friday and one of the House Specials was fish and chips and it was amazing. Water and glasses are provided on the table, bread and olives we're also offered but we didn't have,

(You can hang your coat up in a small archive ..and they will bring your coat back to you when you leave).
The restaurant also opens up downstairs.
The toilets are also located down stairs too.

Four people dining with two starters four mains and a few drinks £120 including a 12.5% service charge
