While I have been going to Bread Street Kitchen for a number of years, there has been a steady decline in both the service and food quality in the last few visits. After this last visit, I will not be back. A few examples of why: (1) the hand cut chips - a favorite in the past - were double-fried, pale in color and tasteless. Chips should never be colorless. Clearly below par. (2) while there were numerous staff in a not very busy restaurant, the service was horrible. There was no one at the host desk for several minutes after arriving (on time for a pre-reserved booking). One of the line cooks tried to get someone’s attention to no avail. Once seated, there were no less than 3 people who came by the table, and still terrible service. This is a sad review to write for a formerly favorite restaurant. Perhaps Gordon Ramsay should begin to focus on his own restaurants?

Arrived for a friends dinner on Friday evening at 8pm to be told that the only cuts of steak they had were the Porterhouse... of course the most expensive. Seems like very bad kitchen stock planning for a Friday night. We would understand if we had arrived at 10pm, but not at 8pm. Otherwise a satisfactory meal. Although some cheaper red wine options would be good to see, with the cheapest full bodied red wine at 59 pounds a bottle, that is a high starting point!

Visiting from U.S. and husband desperate to try beef wellington. All I can say is rubbish. Meat was tough, sides were cold. Definitely not what we expected for over 300 pounds. Take my advice and take your money to the Oxo Tower where you get true value for money.

The Sunday Roast was excellent as always so was the Austrian wine. Agnieshka ensured that the service was outstanding. We all thoroughly enjoyed the occasion. Personally my favourite among the City's restaurants both young and old love it.

Went there for my birthday dinner. Unfortunately didn’t have a good experience. Firstly they forgot our order. So after the starters we were left for minimum 45 min waiting for the mains. After we checked in they rushed the food and fries were not cooked properly and meat was not as ordered. However, I appreciate they gave us free dessert and offered to change the mains.

Menu does not have that much variety and is overpriced, £21 for fish and chips and £48 for a bottle of wine, nothing special! Service was poor so we decided not to pay the service charge of £32 and said we would tip in cash, after the waitress took the payment from our cards and realising that we weren’t paying the service charge, even though we explained what we were doing, she said “and the rest?” So explained to her again but after that decided not to leave a tip. Don’t understand how a restaurant that charges such high prices for basic food then thinks it’s okay to charge 15% service charge when there was no real service, they should be paying and training their staff better.

I'm a big fan if BSK and have been a fair few times and have never been disappointed by the food or service. My slight gripe, and it was a guest of mine who pointed it out, is the room is very 'live' acoustically due to the hard surfaces, and it can be difficult to talk and hear. Other than that, it is fine and dandy

Banging music when entering - the host was not able to hear me. Walked up stairs to the restaurant which was nearly as loud with thumping music. Ask the manager to turn down the music which he duly ignored and then changed subject. The food was ok, but not exceptional. Left quickly to get away from the noise. Ruined the night. If this is supposed to be a good restaurant where people talk and have dinner, then why are they ruining it for diners ???

Duck was almost raw. The staff did not ask us why we left the food - or if we enjoyed the meal 0/10 on service there

Nice space but very ordinary food. The California Rolls fell apart, the Wagu burger was so finely ground it was like paste & totally lacking in texture. Triple cooked chips were hard and dry. My companion said roast Cod was excellent tho
Service was very friendly & efficient but main course arrived before starter had been cleared
£160 for two (no dessert, one bottle of wine £40) was extortionate

Food was average eg. Vegan risotto was very salty, not just my taste as my friend thought the same. Also, the service wasn't great - had to ask for things twice and wait rather long for simple things like extra butter. Ambience wise the place is lovely, shame about the food and service - definitely felt overpriced...

Went for brunch and I had the full English with extra bacon (as recommended by staff) and avocado on the side... the breakfast was meh... it only had one sausage, so that's what I would have had extra of as there was plenty of bacon. The avocado was unripe and I could only eat a small amount of it.

It's very busy and noisy, a good atmosphere for a larger group I would say. The service is good, but a bit sullen and the food took quite a long time to arrive. Other members of the group had cocktails, which they enjoyed very much! The Sunday roast as ordered by my wife looked very good indeed and she enjoyed it. I've had good food here before, but I probably won't rush back, it's expensive for food you'd find in many pubs cheaper and better quality.

Third visit so have enjoyed in the past. This time: not so good I’m afraid. Service was pleasant but soooo slow. Took over 3 hours to get to the end of the meal. Had pork belly which was delicious but another in the party had lamb chops which were fatty and yuck. He didn’t send them back because it was so long coming for one and it wasn’t worth spoiling a good chat with friends. However he said it was as if they’d whipped a couple of value chops off the shelf at Tesco. At £80 a head (and half of us didn’t have a pudding), I expect quicker service and unfailingly good food. Shame because I liked this place - not sure I’d go back now.

I have always enjoyed eating here. Sunday lunches have been pleasant in the past. I would not visit again on a Sunday because the emphasis is on entertaining children rather than providing a calm and relaxing atmosphere. We had to wait over fifteen minutes for our pre-booked table with no apology and the usually excellent service was lacklustre at best. The food did not seem up to usual standards which was disappointing.
