Absolutely brilliant in every way - the food was delicious, as were the cocktails. Would 100% recommend to others and I'd love to go back and dine again soon.
The combination of flavours in all the dishes we tried was amazing. Attentive staff. Will be back.
Food was tasty, menu was unusual and exciting. Greeted by a welcoming host who was helpful and pleasant. Overall a good dining experience but my one complaint would be that we felt under pressure from our waiter to order quickly: he barely gave us time to look at the menu before he asked for our order and then came back less than 1 minute later to ask again; plates were whipped away as soon as the last mouthful was gone; we were handed the dessert menu and asked for our order before we had even looked properly, and so on. If the food hadn’t been so delicious it would definitely have spoiled the evening for us.
Best meal we have had in years. Some unusual flavour and texture combinations.
Echt lekker eten in een plezierige gastvrije sfeer.
Amazing as always! Great good, great service. If you haven’t been “ottolenghi-ed” by now, what are you waiting for? Get down there and have their amazing food!!!!
Fantastic place to dine in. Great food and exceptional service.
Food and flavours were beautiful, service was great
Very good lunch. The salads combine some lovely flavours as you would expect.
The highlight of our travels, thank you so much for your lovely food!
AMAZING FOOD and GREAT SERVICE.
Loved it! Loved it!
Food and service were excellent. Dishes and combinations you dont see elsewhere..I really recommend the goat.
Easily the best meal I've had in London. Go for dinner, not lunch.
The waiters weren't very polite and friendly. Not one smile during all the service, we had the impression to disturb. We hardly had some explanation about the menu and we had to ask. The food was good but nothing mind blowing.
Love having my own personal toaster. Also gave me a little cake for my birthday which was so sweet!
We went for brunch on our trip to London. Definitely a highlight!!
Really nice ! Amazing food and great service.
Try the pear and basilic juice it’s super nice
Great food and wine in a nice setting. Had a great lunch!
Excellent food, swift service and the most amazing flourless chocolate fondant
Beautiful food, full of flavour. Excellent service.
Really refreshing take on Israeli food and A innovative approach to using the flavours of the region.
We had a delightful lunch, had very attentive wait staff, food was top notch as per usual and there was a lovely atmosphere, spent a good 2 and a half to 3 hours never felt hurried along and stopped to buy some scrumptious things to take home.
Thoroughly enjoyable, thank you
First time to Ottolenghi, visiting from New Zealand, been excited to enjoy the varied dishes , the cookbooks are great but the restaurant is as you would expect better! Thank you !
Amazing food and very good service, very enjoyable and one of my favourite restaurants!
Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Ottolenghi Spitalfields. It was busy and noisy but a great vibe. The food was very tasty and didn't disappoint - the wine is usual London prices. What really made it was the front of house lady and the sommelier who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and special.
Nice atmosphere however the food was very salty (I prefer lunch at one of the other branches) and the wine we had was corked - the waitress said that there had been an issue with that batch of wine so I’m not sure why it was even offered to us. I love Ottolenghi but this wasn’t quite up to the usual standards and was quite expensive, sorry!
well organised, friendly service, not too cheap, a little bit loud
Excellent lunch with my husband. Service was great with a lovely waiter. Very attentive.
Food excellent with good size portions.
Will definitely recommend and return.
We had an amazing lunch at Ottolenghi and would definitely visit again!
From start to finish the service, staff and food were all wonderful. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was so filling but tasty and full of flavour.
Just perfect - amazing food and wonderful service. The staff were lovely with our kids too.
The service was very very slow but they realised this and gave us dessert on the house to compensate
We were booked to sit at the bar but they managed to find us a nice table ,
Fabulous food and lovely casual vibe. Service efficient but not pressurised.
Do not take the advice of the staff re how many dishes to order - we made this mistake and ended up with an over abundance of food - my wife and I were advised to order 3 dishes each, which we did, and when the meat dishes came (beef, goat, pork) they were the portion sizes for a large hungry bloke - the bill came to £126 (with 1 non alcoholic cocktail that was 70% ice and 30% drink, and 1 glass of red wine) - it was worth less than 1/2 of that, irrespective of the fact the food tasted nice - we wished we’d gone back to Pizza Union around the corner again
Never again will we step into an Ottolenghi
Never ever had a bad meal here and today was no different. First time having lunch and it did not disappoint! Everything was so tasty and the staff were really nice and helpful!
Everything is delicious and creative here. My favorite London restaurant.
I’m a huge fan of all things Ottolenghi & this visit certainly didn’t disappoint ... delicious
Food is delicious. Personal is super friendly! Highly recommended!
I was so excited to finally try ottolenghi because I have all the cook books but it was so disappointing. The food was really average (apart from the amazing goat dish) and our mains were room temperature... not even warm. Our waitress was okay, could’ve been a bit friendly & understood the menu and particularly the wine list better.
We took a look round the deli on our way out (I wanted to buy a book) but the staff were so rude & slagging off one of their colleagues I didn’t bother. It felt overpriced and I wouldn’t go back or recommend sadly.
fantastic food. friendly attentive staff and overall interesting dining experience.
