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.

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.

One of my favourite restaurants! The steak is the best and I always recommend this place to my friends. The ambience is nice, dimly lit with banqueting style table setting. The menu is extensive albeit expensive - but this is expected given the calibre of this restaurant. The night I went, they had a special on the menu ‘lobster mac and cheese’. It was a HUGE portion and even for two people we struggled to finish it. The steak was beautiful and so were the drinks. I’d definitely recommend

Very cool setting but terribly overpriced and just not that good. The king crab was nice, the steak unremarkable. Great wine list and DJ, but the meal did not justify 600 pounds for 3. Wouldn’t return.

Food was and service was amazing! Only thing I didn’t like was the seating lay out. Would have been nice to sit at our own table, but they have huge long tables where you have to sit next to each other and strangers. (Can’t sit opposite your dinner partner as you can’t hear what they are saying) A bit intrusive.

From start to finish, the dining experience at Beast was amazing! The food was great, ambience very relaxing yet intriguing at the same time. Anxiously looked forward to every part of the meal, accompanied by stellar service. Can’t wait to go again

Fine dining with a relaxed, accessible feel. As for the steak, a (big) step up from the other top steak restaurants. Beast is in a league of its own.

From the start, a difficult time with our server.

Instead of advising us on what (quantity) to order, she haughtily ripped the menus out of our hands after we placed our orders, and almost never came back to our table to check on us throughout our dinner.

Also, the server was confused every time we ordered drinks. For example, she did not seem to understand what double oaked "on the rocks" meant even though Woodford Double Oaked is what is on the menu, and did not understand when I ordered Amaretto Disaronno (on their menu) and ordered it "neat," what that meant.

Even dessert turned out to be a trial. Because we were 5 people who ordered 4 deserts and said we would share, the sever was confused over what utensils to bring and how to place the desserts on the table, and was not good at hiding her displeasure.

We are sad to have had our last night in London take a negative turn. I think the restaurant' is, on whole, mediocre, with the food served with a healthy side of pretentiousness, delivered in haughty manner by the waitstaff.
