Amazing experience at Pollen Street Social. Relaxed ambience with spectacularly delicious food, the oyster ice cream and fish’n’chips were highlights. Can’t wait to go again!!

Great food and service. We had the vegetarian tasting menu, was a bit too long for a date, we wanted to get out of there much earlier!

Food was fantastic, great portions (not huge but perfect size for fine dining and taste), service was on point. Can’t get over just how delectable the food was!! I was only in London for 2 days but well worth spending an hour and a half here eating the 3 course set menu.

Impeccable from start to finish! The set lunch is a great value and the service really makes this a special experience. The amuse bouches were great and an unexpected touch to the lunch. I was stuffed at the end and disappointed I didn’t get to devour everything!

Definitely a place for a special meal, we saw a couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary next to us.

Food experience not backed up by personalised care & attention. Air Con far too cool & didn’t enjoy the ice cream task. Service charge rightly removed after we were left in limbo at the the end of our meal, watching staff busy setting up for next day’s service.

The staff was very courteous and friendly 5star customer service.

Food was excellent, I love the idea of other food items provided, macaroons, mushroom soup(very nice).

I’ve been to a few Michelin star this is ranked amongst the top. A bit pricey but good.

Pollen Street Social is a wonderful dining experience. Service is excellent and the food is well worth it. Beautiful presentation. Nice wine list. My only criticism would be that we were a party of two women with a reservation made three weeks prior. We were offered the worst table in the place, next to the restroom doors, by the servers station and on the walkway to the bar and kitchen. There were many open tables and the hostess, reluctantly gave us a much quieter table. We noticed that particular table was not sat till much later in the evening.

I’ve been dining here frequently since it opened in 2011. Any opportunity I get to share the restaurant with friends and family I take it as they never disappoint on the quality of their food and overall service.

Amazing, as usual - both the set menu and a la carte dishes we had were perfectly cooked and delicious. In fact all the courses were excellent and the sommelier recommended some great accompaniments. Special mention about the pistachio soufflé - one of the best desserts I’ve tasted. Can’t wait to go again.

Food was very good but service for a top restaurant and attention to detail left something to be desired. A turbot was order with no shellfish or squid. When it arrived it a had squid sauce on the plate. This should never occur.
We noticed this and it had to be sent back. Expected better attention to detail and customers dietary requirements

The food was amazing and faultless.
As for service, we had a fantastic waitress, a lady with red hair and the barman was great. The Maitre d' seemed distracted by a famous diner and forget to send the sommelier to our table after we asked for his assistance. He also forgot to bring our bill after us asking twice and then asked another member of team to do so whcih felt a bit odd. I would recommend Pollen Street because of the food but I wouldn't rush back due to the service and general ambience, which wasn't to my taste.

This was my third or fourth visit and always a pleasure to be there. Food was great as usual.
On this occasion though service was a bit of a let down. It was a struggle to get the attention to order. In one instance when I did catch the ladies attention I was informed she wouldn't be the one to take my order and I was left to wait for another 10-15 minutes. Plus there was a significant wait for desert. I believe the order was misplaced/forgotten. So a let down to an otherwise pleasant afternoon.

So far my worst michelin visit. I went there to celebrate birthday and reminded them to give me a quiet table. But it was very noisy. I ordered tasting menu, and the starter dishes were alright and the main was nothing special at all. The service is not michelin level when they got busy. They did not even clean up my table in time and not asking me for breads. I spent almost 500 pound for two people, but this money really did not match with its value. If you have special event, please don't arrange here. You will not only get disappointed but also waste money.

Offered tasting menu, but subsequently informed it would be “very tight” given a private even afterwards. The tasting menu is an add in to the menu - why offer it?

Otherwise a lovely experience, with great service and birthday celebration.
