Everyone, front of house, servers, bartenders, knowledgeable, personable and engaging. The food was of course amazing but all the servers made it terribly entertaining and unforgettable

Everything here was a taste sensation, from the spiced nuts (free while we waited for our table, bonus), the crunchy lavosh with tzatziki to the twice roasted chicken and even my fun free Virgin Mary. The Courgette fritters are incredible but then so is the mutton padilla. Service was oustanding too. Go and enjoy it all.

NOPI's cuisine is consistently original and delicious. The wine list is limited, the decor is minimalist and the noise level a bit high, but the food can be downright stunning, with unusual but never bizarre combinations of flavors and textures.

Really good food and lovely staff. Only downfall is you have your table for 1 hour 30 at peak times so if service is a bit slow it can mean you may be rushed a bit at the end

This is the seond year I have treated my friend to a birthday lunch and we have never been disappointed. The food is quite an adventure and delicious also the service is excellent with staff more than happy to explain the dishes.
The only criticism I have is being kept to a time limit although I do understand you are extremely busy.

we love Ottolenghis food and cook regularly from his recipes. 2nd visit to Nopi and just as sublime and interesting flavours. we shared 5 starters between 2 which was perfect for a light lunch.
a nice happy birthday sorbet with candle for my wife’s birthday was the cherry on the cake
this is how good and eating out should be

Sunday lunch was our second visit to Nopi with friends, and all expectations were filled.
Cocktails and food were marvellous, we over ordered and the waiter suggested we cut it down a little, great advice. Not many places would do that, looking forward to returning soon.

This is the second time I have eat a NOPI and the food was absolutely delicious. The eggplant is to die for, the polenta sticks very tasty, the pork belly and baby quail amazing. We are both gluten free so dessert is always challenging but the roast pineapple with coconut cream was wonderful. All washed down with 2 glasses of prosecco each! Highly recommend it.

I have all of the Ottolenghi cook books and just love the recipes so was keen to go to one of the restaurants. The food did not disappoint. It looked delicious and tasted even better. Simple, fresh, healthy. Personally I don't like music being played when I am in a restaurant so might have preferred that to be a little quieter but the atmosphere was casual and relaxed. I am just hoping to try the other restaurants in the group now :)

I was at Nopi a gewoon yeats ago for a friends’ birthday .. we could zat quietly at a nice table and had a dessert with birthday wishes .. This Year I wanted to do the same for my boyfriend. We didn’t get a dessert with a special touch for the birthday. The warm shared dishes were served cold and we had to rush because of the 2 hours reservation. ... I was dissapointed about the service this time. Hope you will do extra efforts for the next clients .. you pay a lot for it though!

We really liked the food (we had a salad and a vegetable and a beef and a fish dish). The ambiance was rather noisy and the whole experience was rather business like. What I mean is that the story about Ottolenghi kitchen seams to me a bit exagerated. But the food is still good and some dishes were very good and prices are (for a London restaurant) not bad.

The food was excellent and exactly what we hoped for. There were some intersting options on the wine list. Especially the red from the Bethlehem area was an eye-opener. However, by chance I noticed that the barman responsible for the wines emptied one bottle of this excellent wine in a glass and topped it up with wine from another bottle. When I sent the glass back and asked for another glass, the staff was surprised. As we had to wait for the main course, the waitress advised us to take a starter. At the moment the starter arrived, we were however confronted with our main courses. We kindly asked the waitress to return the mains to the kitchen - which she did.
We were a bit disappointed that the serving staff in a restaurant with the reputation of NOPI make such basic mistakes.

NOPI is as always perfect: service is impeccable. Everyone is absolutely friendly and helpful. There are apologies for any delays, however, small, with a complimentary dish for a delayed main that really was only a few minutes later than it could have come. All questions are handled very kindly. Old and young are treated with the same energetic friendliness.
And the food is - as always - glorious.

NOPI (or one of the other Ottolenghi venues) has now become mandatory whenever we come to London.

THANK YOU

Liliane
