As good as always, even with COVID procedures in place. Nice to be back!
Had a wonderful evening we'll definitely be returning!
Lovely food and friendly staff. Lussmanns have put some very good Covid measures in to place so eating a meal out almost felt like “normal”
Excellent food and service, as ever. Safe feeling whilst dining.
A belated anniversary dinner which was a little strange due to the new restrictions but well managed by the Lussmans team.
Food excellent and service was relaxed and refreshingly light hearted.
Not a rushed service like my previous Lussmans experience with my wife. Will be nice to get back to my regular visits again.
One big positive was the table space...
Great meal out, delicious food and service was great. Hope they can survive reduced capacity! Still a lovely atmosphere.
Lovely evening. Great food and great service. All staff wearing protective visors. Hand rails on stairs were, reassuringly, regularly wiped down during evening. Looking forward to returning again soon.
Great service. Excellent food.
We had our first dinner out under the new restrictions. Congratulations to Lussmanns for creating a lovely atmosphere. The waiting staff have got the right balance between safety and good service. Food was delicious. At no point did we feel that we were having anything but a great evening out. I personally enjoyed the evening even more because the restaurant noise level was reduced and we could chat to each other easily (we were a group of 5). Well done to all the staff. Will definitely book again.
Lovely food and pleasant service until a change of waiter suggested I download QR code to check allergens in desserts as I'm Coeliac! Not impressed and soured a lovely meal under restrictions.
The food was lovely and the service was excellent. Had a really good time and will definitely be going back
Our first dinner out since the beginning of lockdown and we were delighted with the care taken to make us comfortable. Food and service were excellent.
It was our first visit to a restaurant under the Covid-19 rules. The arrangements were thorough but proportionate, and did not detract in any way from the experience of dining at Lussmanns. It was great to be back and the food did not disappoint. The summer salads (one with chargrilled nectarines, the other with roasted beetroot) were fresh, light starters; both fish dishes (plaice and sea bass) were beautifully cooked, and the desserts (cheesecake and summer pudding) flavoursome without being overly sweet. The service was attentive and friendly, and we had a very enjoyable evening.
Beautiful and tasty food in pleasant surroundings with very courteous attentive staff.
Excellent meal, as always, social distancing was in place with hand sanitisers and Waiters wearing visors.
Our first covid 19 meal out. Chose Lussmanns as we have been there before and expected them to be well organised re covid. As expected they were, and the food as ever excellent. Go there with confidence. Importantly their precautions to do not dilute the social experience of dining out.
Top marks- Imaginative well thought out menu, everything was consistently delicious and the service was perfect. A great place. Deserves to do well.
Amazingly orchestrated to manage excellent and safe service.
It was our first venture out to a restaurant after the restrictions had been lifted in this pandemic. It was fantastic experience. Everything felt right. Excellent meal, great friendly service. You could also see the staff making a real and great effort to make it the best possible experience under government rules.
Good value set menu. The nectarine salad was very nice. Only negative was that one of the starters on the set menu was unavailable.
Staff observed social distancing to the highest level which is very reassuring. Great location right next to the cathedral.
As always had a lovely meal and thought they managed the whole ‘stay safe’ requirements well
Lovely meal post lockdown. Waiter was attentive, whilst adhering to guidelines.
Had an enjoyable meal, despite the altered conditions due to COVID-19. Ordered from fixed lunch menu, with starter and dessert being nice, but underwhelming. Main (steak frites) was delicious though.
Always enjoy Lussmanns and the changes made to accommodate the needs of Covid-19 did not detract in anyway from a relaxed evening with good food.
Excellent evening. Staff coped really well with new regime. Food delicious.
Great service and we were in a separate section which was good as we had a 92 year old with us! Plenty of hand sanitizer and staff all wearing masks so we felt comfortable.
The staff were helpful and our waitress was outstanding and really friendly.
The menu is very limited currently, so much so we skipped starters and went straight to mains. The food quality was good and service was very good but we did consider leaving after a few drinks as the menu wasn’t great unless you love steak dishes. Overall I’d recommend for drinks and a nice ambiance but that’s all.
A lovely evening and very safe and friendly. Thank you
The staff were Very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious with a good selection of gluten free food for my daughter. For a restaurant if this standard the pricing was fair. They remembered my daughters birthday which was a nice touch.
First meal out since lockdown. Always like it here. Warm and efficient welcome. Slightly let down to be shown to a private room as we lost a sense of being in a restaurant. But spacing rules rule. Food and drinks were great. Service friendly but trailed off towards the end of the meal creating quite long pauses. But undoubtedly a good experience overall
The sea bass was amazing! I was so impressed with how safe the place felt with all the measures they took to ensure safety during covid-19. The food was amazing as usual and the wait staff so so nice and professional.
We felt very secure at Lussmanns given the strange circumstances surrounding Covid-19. Everything seemed well organised with regard to hygiene and the staff were professional and friendly. Our Slovak waiter was really excellent, helpful and pleasant. The food was up to its usual standards and perhaps even better! Very generous portions of the chicken escalope mains and the poached pear dessert. This restaurant is the go-to place for a top meal.
We had a delightful lunch at Lussmanns. We chose to eat from the set menu and was pleasantly surprised with the variety which covered all food preferences including vegan. The staff were wonderful and we were very reassured at the measures introduced for these Covid times. We will definitely be going back again soon.
A joy to be able to return to restaurant-dining at this glorious place!
It's hard to do a review at this stage of the process of restaurants reopening, I'll try and cover it from the perspective of feeling safe eating out and for the typical review of a restaurant.
Firstly a lot of thought has gone into making us feel safe AND welcome. We were not crowded, contact was kept to a minimum but it was still very human - such an important point. While it can never be the experience pre COVID at this stage, Lussmans team did everything they could to give us a good experience. And we did enjoy being back.
The food was as good as we remembered it. A very generous and succulent chicken schnitzel for me and a perfectly cooked steak for my husband. There was certainly no drop in quality of the food we enjoyed.
Great to be back supporting Lussmans and we were delighted to see that others clearly felt the same.
Lussmann’s has been good during lockdown, delivering their excellent food, so when some friends were coming to St Albans on their way north, I suggested we go there for lunch. The arrangements with a one way system through the restaurant, tables more widely spaced, and serving staff leaving and collecting dishes from trays, worked well and seemed both polished and felt quite natural and appropriate. The set lunch menu was as good as ever and it was altogether good. I’ll be back.
First dinner out since lockdown, the staff handled it all very well. Food as always was delicious.
Very welcoming staff despite the Covid precautions. Felt busy. Food top notch as ever.
Tables were well spaced out and the staff wore visors . Food was good and staff were pleasant and friendly.
I have been eating at Lussmans since they opened. I was so pleased to be able to go back and eat with them again and see that despite the Covid modifications (which were easy to follow, hygienic and effective) the dining experience was of the exceptional standard I am used to. The staff did an excellent job in communicating the new measures despite having to wear the necessary visors. The food was incredible - I can’t wait to go back 😃
