Great food but avoid the wine list.
Seems all Atherton restaurants have the same problem. Wine very overpriced.
Food and service excellent and not too noisy! Fortunately no head banging loud music so common in London.
Great meal as always. The food here is exceptional and always delivers. The dishes are never as you would expect them to be, making what appears on the plate even more exciting to eat.
For once the service was actually quite slow and less attentive. I frequently found myself looking around to try to get the attention of a waiter which is unusual.
Wow! Pollen Street Social blew my mind. Truly an amazing dining experience; the staff were incredible and attentive, the food was fresh and imaginative, the atmosphere was relaxed and fun.
Special mention goes to; the chef that baked THAT incredibly bread (I had about 5 pieces), the waiters who were humble and kind beyond belief, and the pastry chef, who truly made our evening- he made us laugh, and blew us away with his creations. The Yuzu mousse was the highlight of the night.
I can’t wait to return here! Thank you again for a memorable dining experience, I’ll never forget it.
We went for lunch to celebrate a friend's special birthday. The food was imaginative, without being too challenging, and delicious. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, helping to make the experience fun and relaxing. I will definitely recommend the restaurant to friends and family for special occasions.
I was hunting around for a nice meal near the office of a friend who I had not seen in 10 years.
TripAdvisor and OpenTable don't make it easy to "find a really highly-regarded restaurant NEAR me" -- but hunting and pecking in TripAdvisor, I stumbled upon PSS (#351 of 20,567 on TripAdvisor).
The dishes were inventive, carefully prepared, and quite tasty.
The bottle of 2010 Giuseppe Quintarelli Valpolicella Classico Superiore was excellent and a relative bargain.
Overall a pleasant surprise!
we had another fantastic faultless evening at The pollen Street Social
Outstanding food, fabulous service. It was my 4th time at Pollen Street and it didn't disappoint. It was my birthday and the waiting team made me feel very special.
Exceptional food, exceptional staff, wonderful experience.
As good as it gets in London.
So disappointed. Fatty lamb was awful at every mouthful. Oyster ice cream we couldn’t eat. Be n to outstanding Michelin star restaurants before but this was so disappointing for the price. Wine flight overpriced for the small taster you get.
We had an amazing evening celebrating our a Wedding Anniversary. Cool vibe, attentive staff, fantastic food and being invited to the dessert bar was fabulous. Thanks to everyone at PSS
The food was amazing, the service was terrible. We sat for 35 minutes before having a drink order taken and it was just not organised at all well. The food was not able to be explained to us properly and the somelier recommended us wines that were not at all what we asked for.
I would say go for the food it’s fantastic but don’t be expecting anything special in terms of service.
Perfect for a celebration. Food was surprising by on point, with great quality ingredients and none were overpowering. Cadence was good and made overall experience very enjoyable
Fantastic experience. Excellent tasting menu and wine flight. Lovely ambience.
I had high hope for Pollen Street social and was keen to try the tasting menu which we booked for 1pm on a Friday.
The restaurant was fairly busy, well decorated and with buzzing atmosphere.
The tasting menu courses were surprisingly average considering the price tag. Out of the 7-8 courses, there were only two that was enjoyable and memorable, the fish and chips and a scallop korabi dish.
The service was slow, and at times the waiter forgot to bring part of the dish (eg, a Parmesan and mushroom foam topped up with soup, but the waiter completely forgot to bring the soup). There was long gap between dishes, which means we only finish the last dish at 4:15, over 3hrs for a lunch meal.
It is a pity that the experience and the food was not as I expected. Although the waiters were forgetful, they worked hard and were very friendly.
This is a fantastic restaurant just of the main road, and a great location. The food is excellent with a very good set lunch which is great value.
Took a friend for her big birthday , we were not disappointed ,courteous and friendly staff, food was nicely presented, very flavoursome , although small portions but after a very nice amused bouche , a starter and mains we were full. Herbal tea trolley was a nice touch with pots of different herbs and petit fours to go with it were enough to suffice for a pudding . Would definitely go back
Great, tasty food. Very inventive presentation and attentive service.
Our wait staff were short tempered and unfriendly...food was excellent. Shame the waitress wasn’t cool.
We dined on a Monday evening, and treated ourselves to the Tasting Menu. The restaurant started off empty (and quiet) but soon filled up with a lively crowd, creating a buzzy atmosphere yet still at a level where it was comfortable enough to talk across the table.
We had an absolutely fantastic evening where nothing could be faulted. Very attentive, informed, and friendly staff who ensured everything was perfect. The food was playful, creative, and full of flavour, and perfectly paired to a great selection of wines.
Cannot wait for a return visit.
I went to Pollen Street Social with my husband ,as a birthday treat. We have a lot of restaurant experience, having been in the business for over 30 years. We thoroughly enjoyed the overall experience and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others. We took the set lunch with wine and we enjoyed it from beginning to end. The staff were very welcoming too.
The best meal I have had I London for a very long time. Just superb.
I have been lucky enough to visit Pollen Street Social many times but this was my first experience of the lunchtime set menu.
What incredible value for money! £37 per person and every bit the Michelin star experience you receive with a full tasting menu.
Amazing produce prepared expertly every time. Our waitress was the perfect and challenging to master balance of attentive but not overbearing and hugely knowledgable of the product.
We will just keep coming back to this absolute London Gem again and again.
Couldn’t recommend highly enough to anyone...
Perfect from the moment we entered! We had a tight turnaround as had theatre seats and every member of staff aware and acted accordingly.
Beautiful food which was wonderfully presented & introduced.
Obviously the dessert bar is an added privilege and not to be missed.
This was our second visit, the previous being a couple of years ago, and while it lived up to the high standard set on that first occasion it was disappointing that the menu, the vegetarian one at least, had not moved on in that time. The food was delicious, but almost exactly the same as we had last time (puds notwithstanding, I had the cheese, which was immense, so cant comment). My other niggle, is that my partner particularly wanted the tasting menu, but as I am not at all fond of sweet things, I asked if I could switch the pudding for cheese. Other, similar, restaurants have been only too happy to allow this, however I was not allowed, and so we went à la carte. Apart form that we had a lovely evening, and would definitely recommend.
The food is excellent, plus the food and the staff make you feel special. Highly recommend
Always great food and attentive, professional service.
My husband took me for lunch for our wedding anniversary. The staff were really friendly & very efficient - but the food was stunning both on the eye & palate!! It also had a really nice vibe & wasn’t too snobby!! Tried to book it again for an evening meal but it was fully booked on the date we wanted!! My advice is book well in advance so you’re not disappointed!!
Lovely setting and rather adventurous experience - one never knew what was coming next! Mid-week lunch I wasn't quite ready for a full on dining experience - a starter and main would've been perfectly sufficient, so I did find the additional bits of "afternoon tea" to start and dessert selection (even though we did not ask for dessert, but has arrived anyway) a bit excessive. Food was lovely however and presentation really fabulous. Restaurant much bigger than expected for such establishments and did get a bit loud at one point over lunch, but nonetheless a lovely modern space.
This was a fabulous dining experience from start to finish. The service was prompt, cordial and classy. The cuisine is inventive and delicious. Never had a seafood tower quite like the one that I had here - it included oyster ice cream which sounds weird but was delicious. It was a special and memorable evening.
We arrived at 10pm for a post theatre meal. The sea bass was undercooked, they had run out of quail and the waitress simply didn’t care. Perhaps it was because we were dining late but this was not the meal I expected. Awful
Amazing tasting menu dinner! Couldn’t fault it! Great dessert bar - could see the food being prepared and talk with the chef! Fabulous! Can’t wait to return!!
The food looked amazing it was presented really well. I had lamb which was delicious but was not piping hot. I loved the soufflé for dessert and the crab as a starter was nice. I have been to quite few Michelin-starred restaurants I would say this is a bit overpriced,
Some great food, Cote de Boeuf was superb, somelier Agniewska has put together a really interesting list and Lorenzo was wonderfully attentive as we tested him and his patience. Love the desert bar ... really quirky good idea.
I had a delicious birthday lunch at Pollen Street Social. The service was excellent and unobtrusive. The food was amazing, every little thing on the plate tasted wonderful. The obvious attention to detail of th chefs gave each dish wonderful flavours.
Excellent service that ensured we were in time for the theatre. Food and wine matches were sublime. I would thoroughly reccomend this restaurant
Relaxed and friendly ambience. Efficient and attractive service and creative, delicious cooking. The complimentary birthday desert and card were a lovely surprise
Lighten up on the salt shaker!!!😝
Went on a recommendation and had the buisness lunch . Excellent will definitely be revisiting
