Excellent food and service. Really covid savvy too. Could not fault other than no NZ sauvignon blanc and mussels had sold out, but can't be easy judging stock levels in the current environment especially with the Eat Out to help Out deal! Would highly recommend here.

The restaurant had very good Covid-19 measures and we felt protected. Food was great as usual, limited choice but there is always something to satisfy my appetite.

On the occasion we went it was 33 degrees and the air conditioning had broken so it was a bit warm !

Not too happy with the on line booking process. We were on the fixed menu with three choices for each course and they turned out to be excellent.

Kasia is the most wonderful server we always have her when we come in and she is perfect so kind very attentive and just enough attention to the table. As we work in 5* hotels we know how hard this is to achieve. Top marks!

The St Albans Lussmanns has done wonderful things in opening up at this time. Well-spaced tables, efficient kitchen to table service with minimum staff contact, excellent menu as always, small but very well chosen wine list and very well trained staff. We dined in complete confidence and had a most enjoyable meal.

We really enjoyed our first meal out since March.
The ambience was excellent and the food was good. I felt that the waiters wearing the face shields were a bit of a waste of time as they were tilted up a little so they did not prevent the passage nof germs. They needed to be pulled down or a mask should be worn.
The samphire was excessively salty but otherwise we had a great time and would not hesitate to go back, The socially distanced table kept the noise level down to a tolerable level. Thank you.

Having advertised the set menu, we were disappointed to be told it wasn't available after 7pm.
My partner ordered a Steak at £28.50, probably the most expensive item on the menu and it was not brilliantly cooked. Both fatty and chewy.
For two starters, two mains (I had a fishcake), one glass of wine and a soft drink, the bill was nearly £60, that after a govt incentive scheme discount of £20.
The waiters are friendly, but seem to think they are working in a top London venue.
We like Lussmans, hence why we return and try to support our locals, but this was far from our best dining experience there.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.
