What a great experience! The staff were amazing, the restaurant is set up well to deal with the current COVID restrictions.
The food was superb and well priced. Will definitely be going back when they are allowed to open.

As it was the last Friday before lockdown there was a queue at the door evening you had a booking. The reason was that they some people arrive late. We are kept waiting because inconsiderate people were allowed to keep their tables even though Lussmans policy is that you lose the table if you are 15 mins late!
The food was not as good as I have come to expect tbh. They seemed to be struggling to keep up with orders. My steak had too much grissle for the most expensive itemn on the menu and when I pointed this out the waiter simply shrugged his shoulders and took my dish away. I will think again for travelling the 30 mins it takes us to get there.

We enjoyed our visit to Lussmans. The table we were taken to was in a good location and the service was attentive.
The range on the menu was a bit limited but the food that was served was well presented and of good quality.
We understand that the current situation restricts many of the things that we enjoy, but we felt we were a bit rushed at the end of our meal - no time for coffee! It was also a bit of a struggle paying the bill as the restaurant did not want to accept cash.
That apart, this was a good experience and we enjoyed a pleasant afternoon.

The food was absolutely delicious and so was the service. We are so grateful we were able to spend our last meal out in your lovely restaurant.

We will continue to support you when we are in a position to do so.

All the best.

I live alone and missed the occasional lunch with friends, so I decided I would treat myself to lunch. I booked for Thursday 17th, the day before we went into Tier 3 and subsequently Tier 4. I had a really enjoyable lunch with great food and service and look forward to being able to lunch at Lussmann's again soon

Excellent food and great service. Venue itself is very nice, however its position amid a row of empty shops does it no favours, but of course the restaurant can not control that. I would happily return

It is a sad reflection on the times as it is meant to be a Fish (and Grill) restaurant and had 3 fish options, that's it, plus a 1 prawn cocktail. The rest of the options were not 'on the grill'. None of the fish could be grilled / pan fried, instead curried cod cheeks or smoked. As for the grill options...would you like steak & frites or steak and frites? On asking our delightful waiter if there were some specials he said 'well, if you don't like it...'
Personally, I would not visit at all until they actually get some fish and seafood in to cook. Could go anywhere for the same meal. A shame for the Restaurant and restaurant industry.

Lussmans advertises itself as a Fish restaurant, but to me there is not enough fish on the menu. We have been several times, and the food we have had has been good.

I wrote a full review on Trip Advisor so briefly, the quality of ingredients and taste of all dishes was beyond perfection - this restaurant is in a class of their own - outstanding in every respect. Staff were working so so hard and as a team - outstanding.

We enjoyed our visit, as usual, but did feel that the 'sprout tops' were really overpriced considering what they were (just the tops of Brussel plants) and the small quantity.
Lovely staff and attention as usual, thanks.

My wife gluten intolerant and the menu was very limited with regard to gluten food and the system for identifying what was ok was not very easy to use.
A separate list/ menu showing clearly what is gluten free would have improved our experience.

The restaurant has spaced out the tables since we have been there with the new distancing rules. Felt very safe. Felt the menu could have been a little more varied as we struggled to choose something. Once we did, food was very nice. Staff were attentive too.

They do a very good inexpensive set lunch together with a select a la cate with seasonal changes.
Service is excellent, sensible social distancing .
