What Insiders Are Saying
Ottolenghi is a casual restaurant and deli that serves fresh Middle Eastern-influenced food, pastries and excellent salads.
The coffee was under extracted
The desserts were really good
Fantastic meal - lives up to the hype
We received great service - very accommodating of our food preferences and access needs. Every dish was divine! A great place to have a relaxed Sunday afternoon meal - buzzing ambiance but quiet enough for a good conversation
The service was quite slow but the atmosphere was great, very relaxed. They missed off part of the order when they brought the food and we all ordered ‘hot meals’ of which mine wasn’t very hot.....the Dutch pancake was still good however.
It was ok overall, maybe a bit pricey all things considered ...
Such beautiful and tasty food! Such a great place
Didn’t quite live up to the hype. Don’t get me wrong, great food and service, but from many reviews it seems like folks gush more out of reputation than actual experience. Just my opinion!
The food was spectacular - healthy and tasty - had been looking forward to visiting for a long time. The place was a bit noisy, but the atmosphere great!
Futura the girls that taken care of us was really nice.
Unique and lovely flavours. High noise levels. Thoroughly worthwhile.
Fabulous food and great service. A little noisy at lunch time but otherwise couldn't ask for better.
we had been to NOPI recently and this place compared well with it. More casual and a bit less expensive, they allow you to put together a plate with an assortment of 3 or 4 salads--which is not possible at NOPI where you have to order each salad separately. So it's easy here to create a satisfyingly varied meal. The dessert display is distractingly varied and moreish; we had a dessert each and then took home another 4! Ottolenghi lives up to his reputation with this new branch.
Great Food and ambiance, but too pricey! Quality-Price ratio Not sufficient
It was very good, but i didn‘t like that we had to pay for getting some small bread. I think the bread should be for free.
As usual the salads were delicious. It was a special occasion lunch and slightly ruined by the continuous alarm that went off 4 or 5 times as we were trying to dine. The noise levels in general were quite hectic. The Persian Love Cake was disappointing and the service quite slow. Overall a less positive experience than my last visit last year
Fabulous selection of salads with lots of different flavours that went so well with each other. The houmous was wonderful.
Fabulous food and service
Fabulous. Love the food and wine. Quiet attentive service. Crisp, clean lines, and food and wine to match.
As expected, all the dishes were excellent and bursting with flavour. Relaxed ambience, great service.
Terrible, indifferent service. Won’t be going back.
The food was unusual and delicious. Two favourites were the aubergine and the short ribs. We had a coeliac in our party and the choices were so good we all had them!! The only thing we didn’t really like was the lettuce with aubergine purée. A great evening with a lovely buzz in the restaurant. Thank you!
Utterly delicous, every one of our choices was heaven. We had a great night, thank you!
Good food with a nice atmosphere. Not all dishes were great though. Asparagus very small ( even for tapas) and Manti was not very nice at all. Would recommend aubergine dishes and the harissa sardines. Service was also very good.
Interesting and unusual food with attractive presentation and intriguing flavours. We very much enjoyed our meal.
Excellent service. Staff professional and friendly. Food is a tsste sensation! The perfect atmosphere for eating! We will be back.
The food at Ottolenghi is always excellent. Went there on Saturday for breakfast and was not disappointed. Great food and very friendly star.
Ottolenghi staff need to pay better attention to their diners. One glass of wine was forgotten, once we finished eating a bill needed to be requested twice and still there was a ten minute wait for the bill to arrive after the second request. Then an additional 10 minutes and another server was needed to actually pay the bill.
Good service, excellent food, quiet location, good Palestinian wine
Superb dining experience with great choice andservice.
Absolutely superb. Enjoyed every bite and fantastic service.
What a magical lunch in every sense, the food the service, the ambience was second to none.
Holiday in London.
Fabulous food, stunning flavours, excellent service. Very noisy though!
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Food was exceptional.
Lovely relaxed and informal feeling for lunch. Food was delicious and filled us up without making us feel uncomfortable or sleepy.
The food was spectacular. It tasted fresh and not too unhealthy. The service was outstanding - wish I could remember our waitresses name but she provided some of the best service that I have ever experienced.
Wonderful from beginning to end. Each dish was beautiful and delicious. The staff were engaging but not overbearing.
I went there with my wife and we were both amazed by the things we had to eat. The flavours are incredible. The staff is very pleasant and the restaurant is nicely decorated. The only drawback is the level of noise, it's fine for a lunch, but not ideal if you're looking for a quiet meal
Great experience! However, it was extremely noisy in the restaurant.
Must eat! Food exceeds expectations, waiters not really customer focussed.
