Pollen Street Social Ratings and Reviews
Pollen Street Social certainly lived up to its reputation. The staff were charming and service out of this world. The food was creative, delicious and just right for the tasting menu “9 courses”. We would definitely recommend the wine pairing with the taster menu. Hope to be back again soon.
I took my daughter to Pollen st Social to celebrate her 21st birthday -for once we were going to be" ladies who lunch"
It lived up to all expectations-the food was the best that those ingredients could be -(I'm a good cook but I couldn't produce food of that quality) Thank you
What a fantastic restaurant! It is rare to find a menu where everything appeals (my own taste and preference of course) and everything tastes delicious.
The small extras that came out before and after courses coupled with the tremendous service (not overly ‘friendly’ but you do not really want that anyway) is what sets this venue apart. I have to say the sharing Cote de Boeuf that comes with truffle and fois gras salad, mac and cheese, and the most wonderful carrots was an explosion of flavour and took up the whole table!
We will be back to try the taster menu next time (and there definitely will be a next time!).
Lovely surprise and nice food. We had the tasting menu, but because we were pretty full by desert, we had to skip the cheese, which we would have loved to taste. Interesting desert and nice wine list, the sommelier recommendations were wonderful. Excellent sellection of wines by the glass.
The restaurant itself is beautiful, good lighting, ambience & atmosphere. Service was impeccable, staff were lovely, knowledgeable and just first class.
The food however I was not as impressed by, having eaten at many other similar level restaurants. I had the lamb dish from the a la Carte menu & I found it very powerful. There were no vegetables at all to cut through the meaty lamb and the hot pot I actually found very greasy. I then had the pistachio soufflé which looked incredibly impressive, but had the overwhelming flavour of almond extract rather than any pistachio flavour. It tasted like marzipan and I unfortunately really do not like marzipan!
So overall a great place but I was slightly disappointed by the food.
Words cannot describe what is truly a magnificent dining experience. From the extensive wine list, to the exquisite food made from locally-sourced ingredients, to the care and creativity with which the items are presented...one cannot do justice with the written word. It is the extraordinary service and attention to detail that is not easily replicated and created a lasting memory for our family. We can heartily recommend Pollen Street Social as a must-experience and will most definitely return when in London.
Excellent food and service. We always choose from the set lunch menu and enjoy every time. However, we would like a few more changes to the main course selection. Also missed one of the little extras usually served between courses which looked like a little afternoon tea. Will return to enjoy again
Pollen Street Social was amazing. Beautifully prepared, well thought out dishes that were perfectly delivered every time. The 8 course tasting menu over 4 hours was a marathon worth achieving and the matching classic wine flight was exceptional. If only we could afford it we would be back again and again.
Fabulous food and dining experience! Don’t get me wrong, overall the service was great, our female waitress could have cracked a smile and we did have to wait 35 minutes for our deserts which made us slightly late for our matinee, but we will definitely be back!
Great value lunch with the set menu. You also get lots of extras such as canapés and petit fours which were far better than I’ve had at other similar restaurants. Service was a little slow which is great if you’re not in a rush but could have been a little more attentive at times. Overall a great meal but service could have been slicker.
