What Insiders Are Saying
Ottolenghi is a casual restaurant and deli that serves fresh Middle Eastern-influenced food, pastries and excellent salads.
Delicious food with a fabulous and casual ambience.A must do luncheon venue
Love it. Never disappoints. Love the Palestinian wine. Desserts are feast for eyes.
Another amazing meal at Ottolenghi, great and varied food, love the Mezze style of eating as then you get to try a bit of everything. Good wine list as well and a great atmosphere, service is always great.
a lovely and welcoming place for brunch. excellent staff and quite reasonable for an unusual menu. be brave and try something new.
Love Ottolenghi's food! Weren't in Spittalfields before. Great location!
We got the book “simple” at the end of last year , great book, great recipes! We wanted to try the real thing with our family & were not disappointed!!
We had breakfast here and it was really good. The Dutch baby pancakes were delicious.
We felt that the service was a little sharp in that both our drinks on separate occasions were removed from the table without being empty! Food was great!
I have visited the place 2 years ago, the food experience was much better that time. Manti dish was amazing this time, however the lamb shish was not as good and I have left almost all of it on the plate. Too much fat in meat, hard to cut and chew.
Good wine, friendly service, creative approach, desserts are inspiring and making a great finish for the evening.
We have not followed the advice by the waiter to pick 4-5 dishes for each guest, this is too much anyway and you would pay a lot for leaving food untouched. I recommend picking a starter/salad or hot dish to share for two, and just one hot dish for each guest to taste. Dessert in the end and you are fine and not hungry at all.
A bit expensive for the quality of food we have experienced this time.
White Chocolate & Berry Dessert is great!
Disappointed. Expensive and poor foods.
A really good evening. Staff very helpful and food excellent. Expensive and probably not "worth it" in terms of cold calculating value. But you don't go to this kind of place to count the cost, you go to enjoy it and we really enjoyed ourselves. Strongly recommend.
Perfect really enjoyed our lunch we were well looked after
Outstanding choice of delicious and creative food, great atmosphere and phantastic service.
Yet again, we have been blown away with all the flavours. This restaurant never fails to impress.
I loved the Baladi wine, very different. The service was excellent with knowledgeable staff.
The main courses (fish) were fantastic. We will visit this restaurant again.
really good food
quite expensive so it is or a treat
This is my third visit - the first time was very special in terms of food, service and ambience - if somewhat over-priced. On second and third visits the service was not good - the attitude of waiting staff was off-hand, not warm and friendly. Food-wise, my partner is gluten-free and was disappointed that no gluten-free bread was provided and most of the gluten-free savoury options had chilli which she also can’t eat. When she enquired if one dish could be prepared without chilli she was told that was not possible and she could take the chilli off the vegetables! She attempted to do this rather unsuccessfully and ended up eating some of the hidden chilli which created a stomach upset, clearly not the right restaurant for her and she won’t be eating with you again. Clearly not all restaurants suit everyone, but you guys suggest in your literature that it will be fine for someone with food allergies and in reality it’s not.
Cakes are great here. Lunch menu offers good choice of salads but meat options are also served cold. Service is very good
Highly recommend Ottolenghi. Great service and food.
Our waitress was not polite and quite rude in addressing the table. This was the only negative experience about dining here. Other than that, the food is exquisite!
Excellent food! A lot of vegetarian options and a very good service and hospitality.
Opentable let me book but the restaurant was closed
A buzzy atmosphere. Attentive and friendly service. Ideal menu for a light but filling lunch.
lovely friendly staff a lovely window table for two. excellent food, large portions
Outstanding food. Wish I lived closer to come more often!
As usual, the insurance of a truly innovative and tasty dinner!
Great breakfast. We’ve been here many times but on this occasion it was for breakfast with my brother and his 3 young children. The staff were very accommodating, preparing plain scrambled eggs with bacon rather than the advertised with smoked salmon, and frying eggs for another child. We loved the whipped tofu with harissa and fried halloumi- all gorgeous. Will def go again for breakfast and many thanks to the staff.
Food was outstanding, perfectly balanced flavours. All waiting staff really friendly and very helpful, cared about our every need! Went for a birthday meal and they made her feel very special!
We had an amazing time at Ottlolenghi Spitalfields.
The food was obivously awesome but the real ++++++++++ that made all the difference was the quality of the restaurant team !
We were 2 + 1 baby (11 months old) and when we arrived they booked us a table for 4 and already installed a super comby baby chair, they were super helpful and really baby friendly.
We did not feel like we were bothering them coming in at lunch time with a baby and that was really nice !
A big thank you to this great team (and to the chef, of course because we also enjoyed a lot what was in our plates ;)
My mum and I came here for a festive treat and we were not disappointed. I’ve been a fan of Ottolenghi for a long time and was absolutely delighted with everything at this restaurant. The food was amazing and the service was friendly and attentive.
Wonderful experience all around.
The breakfast is fantastic. Would recommend the shashuka and the rarebit. Great coffee and even better cakes.
An explosion on the taste buds! Fabulous food and service. Could do with some gluten free bread though!
The food was great but the portions that were served for two were small. The service was also slow and inconsistent. There is a £1 charge added to the bill for something (a charity I think) and although we were happy to pay for it, it would be good to let customers know upfront that this charge would be added to their bill.
Interesting food and lively atmosphere, I am happy to have visited here.
Fantastic as always, we love it!!! Always good food and service and great desserts!
Whilst the flavours were incredible it felt hugely overpriced for what was essentially salad and veg. I ordered a cauliflower steak and two salads as did my companion and was really disappointed when it arrived because of the size. I spent £80 for two people with one drink each and came away not feeling close to full. When it's a totally plant based meal you need to bulk it up
but to have the same effect. I know up market restaurants like this often have small portions but can't understand why when most people after a proper lunch wouldn't find the portion sizes satisfying. Positives: the cocktail I had was absolutely delicious and the service was also perfect. So, I wouldn't come back except for a cocktail.
Small sharing plates, perfect for a catch up and bottle of wine with the girls!
Great service, friendly staff, and very tasty food!
Food was exceptional and although they were simple products like aubergines and leeks the flavours were fantastic. Service was excellent too.
Really good atmosphere. Fresh food and a great service. Highly recommended.
