I've had a brunch here and it was great. The service was impeccable, friendly, fast and not intrusive.
The food was just delicious, great selection for vegetarians (and options for vegans) and very good quality.
American coffee was maybe a bit small, but yeah, I'm used to drink buckets of it, so...

We ordered the sea bass but found it too salty. The pork chop was a bit overdone. The vegetable starters were nice and the truffle chips was the best thing we ordered. Overall we found the food to be overpriced and underwhelming.

Booked a table for 6pm, table wasn't ready so we were moved to the standing bar. 20 minutes later we were shown to the table after being ignored and no apology for the delay. It was a special occasion and requested a bottle of prosecco at the table upon arrival, needless to say it wasn't there. We had to keep asking for our order to be taken as we were off to the theatre, instead the waitresses prioritised remaking/dress the other tables.

After all this food came quick and was really good, if expensive for what it really is.

All in all really disappointed, it wasn't crazy busy and they had more than enough staff so there really wasn't an excuse for this service.

Well executed nice food - but feel like they’re not taking as much risk with the food as they used to, and the service felt a big perfunctory.

I am a huge ottolenghi fan. I was excited about the prospect of doni g at nopi, having eaten several times at the islington restaurant. Unfortunately I was terribly disappointed. My order of the potato pancakes were underseasoned and underwhelming. My partners dinner was marginally better but certainly nothing to rave about. So wanted to love the food but didn't

Fantastic food - everything was just that little bit different and so good! The staff were very attentive and went through the menu, discussing any food intolerance issues etc. It is quite expensive but worth every penny!

In all the years we have eaten at Ottolenghi we have never had a bad meal. However this was our first time at Nopi & it won't be our last. Food was absolutely delicious. Ambiance buzzing. Service impeccable.

Nice food, but nothing spectacular compared to other Ottolenghi restaurants. I am very disappointed by the service though, as not only we needed to wait 30 mins for our table (which we reserved) but the staff was very unfriendly with us and as they were near closing time they made sure we feel the urge to leave as soon as possible. I'd expect a much nicer service in a place like this.

Enjoyable lunch, food was innovative, different and extremely tasty - as expected. We shared and enjoyed everything that came from the kitchen. Service is a bit on a slow side but on this occasion this was not a problem. Staff are friendly and helpful.
The only comment is that the noise level is very high so no chance of having a nice quiet conversation! However, this will not put me off from going there soon again!

I’m a chef and Ottolenghi is literally like a god to me and his books are my bibles. I’ve never eaten in his restaurants before and NOPI didn’t disappoint. It was everything I’d dreamed of and more. An added fun extra was the toilets!

Nope is our favorite restaurant in England. The space is attractive and welcoming. The creativity of the dishes is unmatched. The ability to share many smaller plates makes it tasting experience. In this visit the orange wine and mutton illustrate what makes Nopi special

I was expecting much more from this restaurant. In the end food is a bit too complex, too many mixed flavours and it has dairy everywhere. Too expensive for what it is.

The waiter was friendly and helpful in discussing the menu with us. All of the dishes we ordered were beautifully presented, excellently seasoned, and delicious! We especially enjoyed the miso glazed hake, the burrata with coriander seeds, the roasted aubergine, and the beef with shiitake ketchup. The restaurant got a little noisy once it was full, so we enjoyed eating a little early when it was quieter. The mixed cocktails were also wonderful. Altogether a superb dining experience.

Great food. Eggplant was delicious as were most vegetarian dishes. Lamb was spiced differently but delicious. Boratta pears were awesome. Service was pore to middling. Food arrived before wine or even drinks. And then each plate felt rushed. Would go for the food but not a relaxing experience.

We were big fans of the cookbook of Yotam Ottolenghi so when we visited London we really wanted to pay a visit at Nopi. It certainly wasn't a disappointment! Great service, amazing food, perfect company. We had an amazing evening and would recommand this place to everyone.
