The service was fair at best. Staff were polite but disorganized and seemed overwhelmed, which impacted the quality of our interactions. I won't avoid the place in the future but won't go out of my way to dinner again.

The food and the atmosphere was quite good (the only downside was the steak, the sauce it came is was brilliant but the meat itself wasn't that great).
What kept bugging me and my date is how many times servers came to our table, interrupted our conversation with peeking their head between us just to ask if everything was okay. I'm happy if they ask once or even once per course, but it was way too much.
I found that the price was quite high for the quality of the food as well. The deserts and the starters were very tasty, but the mains didn't blow us away.

I was so pleased with my experience with NAC that I made 3 reservations for the following week directly after. I most enjoyed the truffle burger and fries. They were simple and delicious. My friend and I also split the truffle Mac and Cheese. I loved how creamy it was. Great for splitting. In another visit I got the Eggs Benedict, which I enjoyed. But the real winner of the breakfast were the pancakes. So delicious and a must have!!! The atmosphere was simple and adorable. There is no bad seat in the house. Lastly, I enjoy how kind all of the wait staff were. It really added to the over all experience.

I had brunch here today with 5 of my friends, and I have to say that I am very disappointed with the service we experienced from such a highly rated restaurant. Our waitress, was extremely condescending which made the atmosphere very awkward and tense. One of my friends is a vegan, and when asking the waitress what plates were vegan and if they had a vegan menu, we were given a very abrupt no. If you are vegan this really isn’t the place for you, there’s scarcely anything vegan on the brunch menu besides the salad. To make matters worse our drinks actually came after we had finished our food, because the waitress forgot we had ordered it; this should have been the first things to arrive at the table. The waitress was very inattentive, and patronising when we enquired about things on the menu. The food is very nice, however I don’t think I’ll ever return to NAC Mayfair, as the service was subpar. For the same price range and quality of food, we were better off going to Granger & Co. for instance, as they know how to properly treat their customers. Additionally, if you do decide to go here just know that when the waiter/waitress offers you still water in a bottle the moment you are seated, it is literally £5 a bottle. I felt that the waitress was very sneaky in offering it to us, as she made it seem that the water was complimentary. Lastly, despite the food being very nice, there are other restaurants in the same area that will give you the same good quality food, but with better atmosphere and better service for the same price as NAC Mayfair. I do not know the name of the waitress who served us, as she failed to introduce herself to us, otherwise I would have stated it, as I think she should be spoken to about this, however i know that she had blonde hair.

I dined here with my boyfriend and I have to say it was lovely. The staff allowed me to move our booking half an hour as my partner was running late from work, but they were very accommodating.

I do think the menu is bit overpriced for the amount of food you get, and I would have preferred the waiter to suggest buying a bottle of wine instead of topping up our glasses several times and charging per glass. Other than that, a great evening and great food, very very tasty and good vegetarian options!

I had heard lots of great reviews at NAC and it was on my list of must have places to visit in London. I booked for brunch on a Saturday for myself and a friend. The atmosphere was very lively as there were many people queuing and within the restaurant, however it did not feel too overcrowded and noisy/loud. Our food and drinks came out at a reasonable time and the food was delicious! I ordered the french toast which came out in a honey dome and had a centre of Speculoos with cream and raspberries on the side. My only criticism would be about the service and whilst the staff were very friendly I did find them slightly un-attentive. When arriving I requested some water for the table by the woman who showed me to my table. I then had to request water again from the water who took my drinks order (when bringing our drinks over however he had forgotten about it). I then had to ask a third time, and on this time (because I had made a point about asking for the third time) a waiter bought out some water for the table. Something similar happened when asking for the bill; I had to request it three times before I actually received it. There was a female member of staff in a yellow dress who eventually stepped in to help.

Whilst the restaurant was busy with lots of people, it wasn’t full to the brim and in my opinion didn’t warrant having to repeatedly ask for something as simple as water. Having said that I had a good time and would definitely recommend the restaurant to my friends :)

We were a group of 5 in comfortable booths downstairs - upstairs is noisier / buzzier, but being able to speak to each other actually suited us. Service was excellent - very enthusiastic and charming for a 10pm table without being intrusive. Food is great - modern European ultimately, interestingly eclectic without trying too hard, good ingredients and - ultimately - pretty tasty, small plates are a generous size.

I booked NAC for my birthday. Besides my lovely company the evening was a disaster. We ordered 2 starters, 3 mains and specified food restrictions (no mayonnaise, no excessive amount of dairy) . After 25 min the waitress brought us the starters and a third one which we didn't order. We mentioned it shortly, no further reaction from the waitress, she only said "complementary" . Unfortunately, I didn't even have cutlery at that point, making it hard to enjoy the starters. But,well. Still OK, that happens. After our starters we waited 1 hour (!) for our mains. We were promised several times that our mains would be ready every second. After one hour without being offered any snack/drink to bridge the long waiting time, the dishes finally came. Unfortunately, my dish contained loads of mayonnaise, so I had to return it. However, the experience of eating together was ruined, as my friends had to eat theirs before it was cold. In addition, we ordered 3 coffees- after 25 Min still no coffee. We asked about it and rudely, our waitress said we never ordered! How dare she? instead of apologizing, she just said we didn't order them. We talked to her again and she said "ah yes right, I remember, you ordered 3 x espresso“. We were offered desserts on the house and took the churros. We received the churros and a cookie icecream dish with a candle (very sweet move of the manager, however, due to my intolerance I couldn’t eat it). After the coffee eventually arrived, we asked for the bill. We were charged for the 3rd starter (we never ordered), for my main (that in total took 1h 25min) & for the churros (although offered for free, we had to pay for the churros- the uneatable cookies/icecream dish was for free + coffee). I was utterly disappointed by the way I was treated. I planned to go there for breakfast for an entire month, but never had the time for it, which is why I decided to go for a birthday dinner instead. Idk if I give it another try for breakfast? we shall see.

We’ve always had a positive experience at Nac.. except yesterday. We waited 45 minutes for our food to arrive. We then discovered we got the wrong food order. We had ordered the truffle burger and the mushroom toast. Instead, we received the tuna poke bowl and a chicken dish. The food was taken back and we got our “correct”order 25 minutes later. To make matters worse, the cooked well done burger I had ordered arrived rare.. Unfortunately, it was a very surprising negative experience.

The service was so awful that they offered free dessert to make up for it. Food was good, nothing extraordinary. However, portions were bad: one of us ordered a salad witg salmon, which ended up being a bowl of quinoa and a tiny piece of salmon.

The interiors at NAC are so beautiful, and the general vibe is so lovely, however the food didn't quite meet my expectations, I found the portion sizes very small for the price and very basic, my friend had the eggs Benedict and the poached eggs were over cooked. I had the french toast, which was very small, leaving me still hungry. However, I cannot fault the service, the staff were very friendly.

We had a nice meal. The service was polite but incredibly slow. There was also mistakes made with our order (it happens) this in turn added to the very long wait which was unfortunate because we needed to catch a train to the airport. One course took 45 minutes to arrive. This was hard to understand as they were all simple dishes one being a cold plate of food and a house salad.
But the main concern and criticism for us was the diabolical state of the toilets. There really is no excuse to have that sort of mess, especially as it was only lunchtime so it was clear the toilets had not been cleaned that day with dirty tissue papers all over the floor and unclean toilets etc. It was a real shame and a bit of a let down for an otherwise very smart establishment.

That was horible. NAC is well known to me as a place for deserts/drinks. However, once we ordered the manager came and ask us to order a main course as mentioned in the website policy. That was a scam, it should be mentioned before I book a table for “6”!. The main course was thrown away because of that hidden policy.

I’m definitely not going to recommend booking through this website as there no obvious sentence to state that we can’t order sweets and drinks.
