Offering communal dinning at its finest, you will seated at impressive six meters long tables custom made from air-dried English Benchmark oak.
Top food top service, bit overpriced
Food is incredible but be ready to pay for it. Would probably be best with a group so you can try more things!
I'm surprised at some of these reviews since we thought the food was outstanding. The steak from Australia and Germany were by far the best we have ever had- anywhere! They take extreme pride in their process and describing the different cuts of meat- why & how they will taste different. It was unlike any other steak house experience. The communal seating could make for an interesting conversation if it's really busy, but we dined about 7:00pm and it wasn't crowded. I loved the ambiance with the long tables and antique candelabras. Worth the expense! Will definitely be back!
Didn’t like the steak at all. The USDA bone-in rib eye had no flavor whatsoever. Felt as if it wasn’t dry-aged long enough. Tasted just like a raw warm meat. It has also happened to be under-cooked (ordered medium-plus, arrived medium-rare-ish), so I returned it. To be fair, on the positive side, the manager offered me another (Cumbrian) cut as a compensation, which I accepted because I was hungry ;-), but didn’t like it either :-( (PS. Goodman’s USDA bone-in rin eye is so, so much better!)
It’s rare I find steak this good, especially in London. Well priced and an excellent selection of meats.
You will not find better steak in London
Listed as one of the best surf and turf restaurants for a reason, brilliant food!!
Seating is annoying, as is club level 90s dance music. Food is really pretty good but overpriced for what’s “ok” level steak and seafood. It’s not bad as an experience but it’s sort of irritating
Awesome steak and king crab!
This is by far one of my favourite restaurants, the service and food is always amazing...
We booked the table at 9pm and we did come on time but they neglected us over 30 minutes at waiting area (I think they give away our table to someone else as no explanation why we have to wait that long.) Then they forget my wine order until I ask where is my wine although the somelier then said it was on her the drink. Food always good. King crab not cheap but you paid for what you get. Nice and fresh king crab.
I do not write reviews as a rule but I feel I need to share my experience. I have eaten with my family a couple of times at Beast so my daughter asked to have a dinner here to celebrate her 18th birthday. We arrived as normal, ordered our food and drinks. We told the waitress that my daughter has an allergy to nuts and cheese, as we do every resturant we go to from a harvester to Mc Donalds to somewhere like Beast. The waitress said that she needed to speak to the manager who promptly came over. Instantly I could tell that there was a problem. He asked if she was anaphylactic to nuts, to which we said yes but that we had eaten at their resturant before and as long as there were no nut or cheese on the dish it would be fine. His reply as astonishing. He said that even if there was a 0.0001% chance of her having an adverse reaction he could not serve us. I tried to explain that we had eaten at the resturant before and his reply was that it was a mistake to serve us then!!!
The upshot is that we asked to leave without food and go somewhere else!! ON MY DAUGHTERS 18TH BIRTHDAY!!!
For a resturant to do this disgraceful. There is nothing on their website that says that they are so unprofessional that they cannot handle anyone with allergies. If there are nuts all over the kitchen (in a resturant that grills steak!!) I question how clean their kitchen actually is!!!
I have eaten with my family in resturants all over the world and this is the only time I have every been asked to leave because of a food allergy. Needless to say I have reported them to the food standards agency.
So as a last word, if you have any food allergies DONT GO TO BEAST. GO TO SMITH WOLLENSKY, the food is as good and they don't victimise you because of your allergies.
Super Fresh - Juicy Meat - Crazy Alaska King Crab & The Best Truffle Chips!
The best gastronomic experience in town.
Great food and atmosphere.
Service was impeccable. our waitress explained and recommended dishes to us without us asking. king crab legs is superb!! im asking everyone to try that if they havent!! we took the 700g blue grey steak and shared with truffle chips and wild mushrooms. had vanilla cheesecake and creme brulee. we are stuffed, with happiness! bill obviously does not come cheap but it is very worth. 100/100 would come back again.
A fantastic steak restaurant with great ambience and original decor ... expensive but worth every penny !
Incredible staff. Although a high end establishment you get incredible, friendly service and fantastic food that makes it a very relaxed experience. I rate it very highly
The presentation of dishes were beautiful but the meat quality were so low.
We come again with friends ,still love that perfect king crab ,staff friendly ,drinks good ! Recommend!
Good quality of food and great service provided at the seating of the restaurant
Great atmosphere and seating
Service provided at the door ways (entry/exit) was not so good... slight disappointment but overall was a fabulous dinning experience.
Amazing steak as usual, great service and a great whisky list!
Everything was perfect. Antonio is the man 🙌🏻
Fabulous Scallops and Oysters but the Crab is the reason to dine at Beast!
As always was a great evening and the food was superb.
The food at Beast was delicious, oysters, steak and sides were very tasty. The truffle sauce was to die for :) The table layout (3 large long tables) was a let-down for us. We found it uncomfortable sitting directly next to / opposite people while eating our meal, we did get moved to a small high table and stools but this wasn't ideal and far from the luxury experience we were expecting for the price of the food and wine! Overall we will not be back, shame as the food is good.
Very nice place but Nebraska's steak wasn't good. I love the royal spy. It was really delicious cocktail!
Visited Beast for the first time as a late birthday meal for a friend.
The restaurant was very open plan, with long tables where everyone is served. This lent itself to a great atmosphere. We were sat next to another group who were happy to converse with us about what we’re ordering etc.
We were served by Shianne, she was brilliant to us. She recommended different cocktails and dishes for us to try. She also let me look at her bracelet 💀 and made sure we were looked after.
After the mains we saw the next group getting “the show”. i.e a demonstration of the different cuts of meat and their meat/fat ratio. This filled me with rage as we didn’t get this treatment (we ordered too quickly for her to do so) and after I jokingly raised this with her, she insisted on doing it for us even though we were on desserts by then.
The food was really good but perhaps a bit pricey for what we got. Starters were really good (Crab Tacos and Tempura Prawn), the mains were also really good, the sides and wine were good also but not sure they were value for money (£10 for Brocolli)
Deserts were also really nice, my friend ordered what I wanted (Salted Caramel tart) so I stamped my feet and got ice cream instead. He was very impressed with the tart and my cousin liked his cheesecake too.
Over friendly staff to disrespectful point and rude. For such prices The food is rushed and rushed prior to serving water and the wine.
Long tables and customer seated next to each other while the place can be setup with individual tables for privacy and romance.
Its the best steak in London
Food is good and the staff are welcoming.
Beautiful place. Excellent service. We didn’t want to leave.
It’s spacious, good to book even at the last minute
Staff were really attentive,food was absolutely delicious, atmosphere and decor was second to none. Wine recommendation was spot on. Made catching up with friends, such an enjoyable experience. My new favourite haunt
Very nice place, cool vibe!
However, the tables are very wide and so your friends/partner ends up sitting quite far away from you.
Also, make sure you save up, the place is damn expensive....insanely so!
We went there in a group of 4. We ordered ‘Whole Norwegian King Crab’ (about 2.8 kg) and 2 side dishes - truffle chips and summer salad. The crab was so delicious even without the sauce. For dessert, Chocolate tart and Cheesecake was really yummy - simply but delicious! However, we found it’s a bit pricey but worth to have an experience.
Would I go back to this restaurant? Yes - if someone buys me a meal or it’s from corporate card. But !! No - if I have to pay by myself.
Excellent service and outstanding food. Variety is limited, but if you like meat and crab, you get top quality
Food and service were excellent. It is very expensive (dinner for 4 including two kids under 12 was £475) but very tasty!!!
Very very good and great food and excellent atmosphere
Ordered the expensive crab and wagu - wagu wasn’t medium rare it was still cold and the crab was over cooked
