Was a very nice meal with good service, cheerful staff etc. Prices were fair but don’t like paying extra for vegetables
Would visit Lussmanns again.

First time visit and we were not disappointed! Food was all of excellent quality, the wine (we had a bottle of Viognier) was lovely and the cocktails on offer for the aperitif were great as well. The restaurant itself is very smart, clean and everything looked well-maintained to make for a really lovely environment. Staff were, on the whole, very friendly and welcoming. A great restaurant we will definitely be coming back to at some point!

Waiter cant even accommodate our vegetarian request. All we want Aubergine in paela removed. She couldn't request it to Chef or give any other alternative.

Everything about Lussmanns in St. Albans is first class. The only reason I scored the ambiance
as 4 out of 5 was because of the annoying people at the table next to us kept playing loud videos on their phones and then had the audacity to complain about the 12.5% service charge. Well, I for one thought the service was exceptional! And deserved more than this.

I would highly recommend this restaurant to anybody. In fact I already have.

Local produce, turned into excellent food and served with grace and pride, what more can you want.

Not up to normal standard. My meal included a poached egg. It was served with an overcooked and broken yolk. I pointed out the egg and a freshly cooked egg was brought immediately.
The haddock was also a little on the salty side.
Everything else was very good.
The medioc wine was very (too) drinkable.

We could only get an early table and I was worried we might be rushed. Quite the opposite. We had plenty of time between courses and received just the right amount of attention. The food was perfect, my nephew said it was the best meal he had all year. The quality of food and experience plus the great ethos and values of Lussmanns make it one of our favorite places to eat.

We had a wonderful post graduation lunch for 6 people. Lovely food and stylish surroundings. Not bad value for money, mid range prices, but worth it. Only tiny criticism was the water was lukewarm,could have done with some ice in it ! Other than that it didn't disappoint.

This visit with a colleague was a test trip in readiness for taking a key client to Lussmans on 10th Oct 19. We loved the guys serving, they were to cool and confident. The food was very fresh and tasty, the courgette soup was particularly good. We have definitely selected the right restaurant to entertain our client.

I ordered sea bass - it was surprisingly good (it is easy to make bass boring) with lots of sweet peppers and tomatoes. Clearly, the chef knows his seafood. My wife ordered paella - which is tricky since she is a bit of a paella expert - but this was delicious. Dessert was great - small portion of pudding but just enough to hit the spot. Coffee afterwards was a bit strong and sharp, but it washed dessert down well. Entertainment was in the form of a young lady singing and playing piano - great voice and songs that made date night work well indeed.

Very nice, as usual. My only criticism is of the starter. 2 of us had the same thing but one was much bigger and better than the other with a tasty 'sauce'. The other one was swimming in oil and not as good as at the last meal a few weeks ago. The service was slow but it was a busy bank holiday with only 2 waiters, as far as I could see, so we forgave them that and I will probably go back again.

A pleasant and comfortable room. Service was attentive and just about the right level. As for the food, no complaints at all. I had a sea bass dish for main course that was as good as a sea bass dish I've had anywhere. No hesitation in recommending Lussmans.

My wife has a sensitive nose so she picked up on the fish smells as she walked in the door which is not ideal. Diners don’t want to smell food odours!
But apart from that negative the whole experience was very nice, the food flavoursome and the staff very attentive.
Definitely worth a visit.

We have been coming to Lussmanns for 10 years and have always enjoyed it so we were looking forward to a meal there after a year’s absence.
The service was exemplary and fast, but the drinks were expensive - almost £8 for a G&T? - and while the starters and mains were mostly very good, the puddings were disappointing (soggy Eton mess, bland orange and almond cake). I’m sure we will return at some point but there’s more competition now in St Albans and I think we will be giving them a try first ....

Met for lunch with two friends, had starter, mains, dessert and wine. All excellent, no complaints.
Visiting this restaurant over many years I now think it is on a high. What’s not to like?

My husband and I were amazed by the perfect presentation, taste combinations and textures of each dish. We tried each other's, and went for three irresistible courses. Our waitress was warm and helpful. I have a tomato allergy and she kindly checked my requests in the kitchen to make sure they contained none. The tables were tactfully spaced, so my husband and I could have a private conversation and not feel overheard. I wish we could come every day!
