Lovely food - first time we'd tried lunch here as we'd always previously gone for brunch. The valeron cheesecake was amazing. There was a bit of confusion with the bill but that was quickly taken care of. The setting is delightful and the service impeccable as always.

It was disappointing they wouldn’t make accommodations for common allergies so we only had a few options to choose from and they were very disappointing.

Always outstanding food, wine and service. We had a bit of a wait at lunch for the two starters we ordered. One arrived and the other was at least 30mins later. That really added to the time we were there. That was fine as we had much to discuss and we were not encouraged to leave after 2 hours. Always a great pleasure. Staff were perfect.

Rather bland food, I suspect poor ingredients and resting on their laurels now that this place is so well known. The peppers lacked any real flavour. The lamb was tasty but would have benefitted from more of the flat bread and more humous. The cheesecake contained blue cheese which the waitress hadn’t warned us about, pregnant wife was therefore unable to eat. The beef was absolutely delicious, cooked very rare which was perfect for me but I would have hoped the waitress would have warned us as it again meant my pregnant wife was unable to eat this. Polenta chips were pretty good. The wine recommendations were average/ok but not particularly impressive. Not a totally unpleasant experience but distinctly average and certainly not worth the price tag. We visited sister restaurant Rovi recently where every course was superb, leagues apart from Nopi.

I'm not in London very often so when I am I try and go to somewhere a little different, and NOPI definitely ticked that box.
We had a table in the seated area, rather than shared table, and ordered 6 small plates between three of us. The food is excellent, a great combination of flavours and textures perfectly cooked. But what really impressed me was the cocktails, of which there is a great variety.
Would recommend to anyone looking for flavourful food with a difference.

NOPI is great in many ways, with Ottolenghi's genuinely creative cuisine; however, it is hard to enjoy the food and the attentive service with the violently intrusive noise level we encountered, which effectively nixed any meaningful conversation with our friends ... six months ago, on our last visit, it didn't seem so noisy. But that's a real problem they have to attack. Also, the wine list should include more traditional old-world wines, leaving those who like "natural wines" to the rest of the list.

The service and the atmosphere are very good. It is a buzzy restaurant and the staff are very charming. The food however does not bowl me over. It feels like a mix of Mediterranean dishes that have been meddled with and titivated to be sold at a high price.
The mirrored loos are fascinating and prob used early in the evening before you've drunk too much.

An excellent meal. Knowledgeable, friendly and helpful staff. Interesting menu which was a delight to read and which excited our taste buds while we tried to choose which dishes to order. Choosing was difficult because everything on the menu sounded wonderful! The waiting staff took care to look after us without being overpowering. We were given some good advice about which dishes to choose and how many to order. All the dishes were delicious with excellent flavour combinations. All were perfectly cooked and were exactly as described on the menu. We are great fans of Yotam Ottolenghi’s recipe books and this is the first time we have eaten in one of his restaurants. We expected a great meal and we were not disappointed. The meal was a Christmas present from my daughter and we both agreed that it was one of the best, if not the best present we have ever received!
