We enjoyed the dinner and the location, with a couple of reservations. The service was exceptional and the ambience just as we like. The food, on balance was a little disappointing. The first courses were perfectly cooked but a return to nouveaux cuisine was unexpected. Tiny portions. The main courses were the principal disappointment. An excellent piece of well cooked John Dory was spoilt by a weird combination of trofie pasta and a very rich lobster sauce which combined to sabotage the flavour of the John Dory. The Belly of Pork was, in my view, undercooked, which combined with an under sharp knife made it near impossible to eat and led to a non-crispy crackling. £300 felt a bit rich given we went near the bottom of the wine list. The serving staff were excellent and looked after us very well on our wedding anniversary.

Already intend to purchase voucher for friends as it was so good. Set lunch menu was good value with several 'surprise' extra items. A la Carte looked expensive and drinks were too, but overall a memorable and delicious experience.

We came for my partners birthday and it was perfect! We had the tasting menu and classic wine pairing.. every single course was amazing! What really made it was the service! We had a booking for Ronnie Scott’s afterwards and so we had a time limit and they timed everything perfectly to accommodate that, without having to worry about it everything just appeared at exactly the right moment, they were incredibly attentive without being over the top and so knowledgable about the food and wine! All in all. Great night!

This was my 4th visit to PSS. The vegan tasting menu was superb and well executed.

What ruined my wife’s birthday dinner was sitting at the dessert bar and watching the dessert chef berate his sous chef twice for a mistake on the soufflé. It was unpleasant and uncomfortable. My drinks took ages to come and we’re wrong, and then we were charged for the mistake. Not what you expect for a 1 star michelin restaurant.

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.

This was an incredible experience. Dined with my spouse and our 12-year old daughter. We had the tasting menu, which was more courses than i can remember. Atmosphere was casual and relaxed. Every course was a new culinary experience. Creative food and superb presentation. Our 12-year old ate every course, including dishes she has never tried before. Staff was outstanding. We ate at multiple highly-rated restaurants while in London. This was our favorite. I strongly recommend this to anyone.

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.

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.
