Food was without doubt very good but still overpriced. The staff are all lovely and I would definitely go back if it was not so overpriced.
We were 4 people, we had 3 starters between us, a main course of steak each and a side order each. We had 2 bottle of wine and the bill was 600 pound! We had no desserts or any other extras.
We did have expensive wine which was overpriced for the quality and taste they delivered, so I’m aware this increased the price by quite a bit. But I still feel overall the place is overpriced.

Well, food is good. Overall ambience is different and worthwhile. BUT, service is bad. Our waiter had a severe attitude issue and honestly made the overall experience just bad. So yeah overall, too commercial and somewhat tacky. Wouldnt go again.

Great food just watch the pricing as a lot of it is by weight.
The bill was £340 for 2 people (inc an £85 bottle of wine)
before you know it you've had £90 of crab as an "in-between" (starters and main) course....it all adds up!!
Not a romantic venue as they have long tables so you could be sat next/close to others. Good fun otherwise if not.

Gorgeous banquette style setting with candles...lovley steaks... wish the waiter would have given better advice as to the weight of the meat we needed to order- turns out the quantity was too much (and thus the price went exponentially up). Also, truffle chips are way too thick cut. Should have a skinnier fries option. Overall excellent though, will return and will recommend!

My family was celebrating my graduation on the Thursday we enjoyed our evening at BEAST. It was hands down one of the best dining experiences we have had. A member of our party came with a number of food allergies. Paolo, one of our servers, was amazingly attentive - courteously asking for specifics and discussing the individual options on the menu. He is worthy of all lauding I can provide. While the bill was quite pricey, they even threw in a specialty sorbet deserve to help celebrate my graduation.

Overall, if you’re willing to foot a hefty bill, I would say the ambiance, service, and cuisine is very good. I was thoroughly pleased.

Great Steak and Seafood restaurant with an unusual seating set up which encourages socialising with strangers but would also be good for larger parties.

The Chateaubriand was excellent and could not be faulted. The Wine list is extensive but even the cheaper bottles are a little pricey.

We did not try the seafood but as it was still alive in tanks it was clearly very fresh.

The service was first class as well - highly recommend it.

First time visit here after hearing good things and the odd negative comment, went here as a booking of 6 for a department lunch.

First things first.... as has been mentioned; its expensive; very expensive! Some of the prices quite eye watering and I’m not sure I’d rush back due to that. Maybe this high price point reinforces a bit of a snooty attitude from one or two staff.

But the core reason for attending is obviously the food and this is good, really good. I went for the steaks but left having been far more impressed with the seafood
We opted for starters of two seafood platters and a load of crabs legs.... shame we couldn’t stretch to a whole Norwegian King Crab but at £120/kg (plus 12.5%) and the smallest available being 3.10Kg we left that!!! What I would say though is that what we had was lovely, the crab legs especially.
Main course was a selection of bone in rib eye, a porterhouse, chateaubriaund and wagyu. Must confess the wagyu was tasteless and very disappointing but everything else absolutely fantastic and very tasty.
Deserts nearly passed us by as they wanted us out for a private function and to be honest what we had was average but still perfectly nice.
Good wine consumed

I’ve still not found a place to rival Kew Grill !!!

We got our table half an hour early which was good since the introduction of the concept of fixed meat volumes took some time. We decided on 1 kg/4 persons and chateubriand which was excellent. We could divide this 50/50 as regarding the preparation time of the meat. The red Malbes from Argentina was fantastic and among the best I've tried. The starter (shrimp) and dessert (creme brulee) were also excellent.

Honestly, just not worth the price. Walked in and there was a dead crab floating upside down in the tanks. Too loud to hear each other, slow service but the steak was terrible. Wasn’t cooked properly and practically all fat. Amazing truffle fries but overall, this restaurant is over-rated. Huge disappointment for a celebration.
