    Great location. Quiet bar that you can have a conversation in. A few more food choices would be nice especially for vegetarians. Service ok.

    We had delicious cocktails but no food. Really lovely ambience though the music felt a little intense for a Wednesday night! Some more chilled music/jazz rather than a thumping bass would really suit the venue

    Two negative comments: first it was incredibly hot in the cocktail bar. Way too warm to be comfortable. Cocktails- we had 4 in tota in 2 roundsl. The first two were superb. One of the second round was a repeat drink from the first but had way more whisky in it so overpowered the flavour of all the other components and was disappointing as a result. The 4th cocktail was very good. Snacks were delicious.

    Pretty poor and slow service. One woman (who seemed to be in charge) obsessively stuck to serving the other half of the room. It was unclear if the other staff were waiting staff or only clearing tables, as our half didnt seem to get the same attention One in particular had a face like thunder all evening. The woman that served us initially was very pleasant however. Also, the menus were quickly collected, making it harder to order a new round

    Great spot for drinks - we had champagne cocktails (Lille) but no food so ignore the score on that. Good service and lovely interior and I very much appreciated being able to book a table for drinks without having to give my credit card details. Will be back.

    We did not have food - only cocktails. Great quality cocktails, and close to the theatre where we were due - so much better than going to a rowdy, crowded bar. Second time we've been here, its a very nice bar.

    I didn't try the food. I did see that they had nibble food which I think is good (saves you from getting too typsy or having to eat before you get there). Ambiance is great, nice lighting, good music, not too loud. Comfortable seating. Nice, friendly and attentive staff. Good array of drinks (both alcoholic and non alcohol). Wait time to receive drink orders wasn't long. Price wasn't bad either. I would definitely go again and will be.

    Our first experience at Blind Spot won’t be our last. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the service was excellent. It was my partner’s birthday and he was brought a cake with a candle which was a very sweet touch. We will definitely recommend this bar to our friends!

    Liked the hidden aspect of the bar. The place was a bit quiet and lacked atmosphere but looked very nice. The big factor was we ordered 4 cocktails and 3 were just undrinkable. Never had this before with a cocktail ever. Worse cocktails I’ve ever had. Will not be back because of this. We did say this and the manager said they were free which was very nice of them.

    A little souless. Cocktails were nice and service was swift but atmosphere was lacking on a Tuesday after Christmas. It's not cheap - average £14 for a cocktail and nibbles were relatively pricey - £8 for small plate of whitebait, plus 12.5% service. Happy to pay that for a buzzing place, but it isn't that.

    No food partaken off BUT this is an oasis in Covent Garden for a freshly made vibrant very dry as the gobi desert martini plus a grapefruit twist was recommended and that just made all the refreshing difference. Lovely staff whom know their cocktail stuff......

    We arrived at 5.15 when it was still very quiet and was seated, we then had to wait an exceptionally long time to be served considering how busy it was. When the drinks arrived a drink fell off the tray and onto the table and all over a dress of one of my guest. her drink was replaced and we was not charged but no offer was made to pay for the cleaning on the dress, another drink was also knocked over in the process and was half full but we had to request for that to be made fresh. I personally would have expected a senior member of staff to come over to apologies. We had a reservation for 2 hours but left after these drinks was finished.

    Amazing hidden gem near Covent Garden! The location is beautiful and the atmosphere is cosy. We shared a bottle of wine and some nibbles, food is delicious and service is great. As all spot in London prices are a bit high, but definitely recommended!
