Amazing pasta. Amazing service. Perfect for a romantic meal or special occasion.
Good vibe and great food! The service was great...we were very well looked after. Will definitely return!
Great customer service, food was good but not amazing. Lovely experience, I would definitely recommend.
Good food, little waiting or delay, nice wine selection
Part of our order was forgotten but the waitress kindly brought us a pizza while waiting for it to arrive.
I had been looking forward to coming to Neds, I was super impressed by the building and how it had been refurbished. The staff were very polite and friendly. I had the lobster pasta which was nice but not £32.00 nice I have eaten better for less. My partner had pizza which he said was nice but but overly specials. We had two drinks each and I had a dessert which was nice. The bill came to £112.00 which I thought was very expensive even for London. I am happy to pay well for good food but I wasn’t blown away.
Fantastic buzz, great choice of food from both buffet and waiter service . Amazing live music . Thoroughly enjoyed our visit
The service was outstanding , thank you to our amazing waiter John in Cecconi. The food was delicious and you can order fresh pizzas and pasta to your table. Salads were delicious and lovely roast- lots to choose from. Really good for our twin toddlers too!
Very slow service and our drinks were forgotten.
great staff that know their job especially on the good value wine .
very comfortable ,nice surroundings .

Have used the Ned a lot for client meetings and the most recent visits have been poor. Cecconi's offers fairly simple Italian food that should be easy to replicate from one visit to the next. My starter was awful (barely edible) and risotto looked like a small plate of gruel (with the presentation skills to match). Bill for 3 people with a carafe of pleasant Gavi di Gavi £216. Ambience is great but food extremely poor and extremely overpriced. Not a great experience for me or the clients. Avoid.

Service was a average. We went for my partners birthday and on our receipt it mention a Birthday Cake plate, we were never given one which was a bit poor. Had to ask for drinks and cutlery several times when my food was at the table.

Excellent food with friendly yet professional service made this a memorable birthday treat. The choice of food was faultless with generous portions of freshly cooked dishes. The service was not rushed but was efficient. We will certainly return and highly recommend the restaurant.

The food here is really good, but what really makes it is the ambience - the live music was great and it feels like a real night out.

In einer alten Bank. Unfreundlicher Ober, Essen war gut, aber zu teuer für Pasta Bolognese. Preis/ Leistung steht in keinem Verhältnis.
Ziemlich leer heute( Samstag)
The food was delicious, however, we felt that the service was a bit rushed and we were asked to vacate the table before we had been seated for 2 hours. Perhaps to be expected on a Friday evening.
We were the first people to be seated and the last ones to be served. Our booking was for a quick lunch and were advised the kitchen would be open at 12pm, which was fine however it took the waitress 30 minutes to take our order. We tried to make contact with her and she had a bad attitudes. I highlight we were aware of this but it did not prevent her from taking our drink orders or bringing us the menus.
We chose this restaurant for a very rare date night. Whilst the food was fine, all 3 courses were served up within an hour and 15 mins. I’ve never been rushed through a meal so much in my life. £170 for a meal that took a similar time to a fast food restaurant did not feel worth it.
I really enjoyed my evening. The Ned was very busy. There was a band playing and the female singer was excellent. Food was amazing if a little over priced. Pinot Grigio wine was really nice. Good they did carafes. Only criticism was we felt rushed and thought the staff were over attentive.
Met with clients and a colleague.
Ladies on reception clearly didn’t get on with ea b other - all a bit tetchy - and we were shown to the table by a sultry young lady who could hardly crack a smile.
We asked to move table as ours was sited in the middle of the room (a little busy with people coming and going), and this was denied although the same sultry person did say she would see what she could do - she didn’t come back, not even to advise ‘no.’ Lacked any service skills.
Table service slow and erratic.
Starters arrived - all ok. 3 mains then arrive and the 4th...... apparently a problem in the kitchen and would be another 5 mins.
This was well handled by the manager in a satisfactory manner. He also apologised for the lack of quality re service.
Overall, the food was ok (nothing special), but service probably better at TGI’s.
Would I book again? The NED is a fantastic, iconic venue, so probably yes, but I would most definitely downgrade and manage my expectation the next time.
Excellent evening ! food was lovely! great service - would 100% recommend it!!
A great venue, wonderful service and good food, but too noisy and too dark
Service was slow
Wonderful food and service. A bit on the noisy side, though, and the side table and chairs (one side is a bench) are not very comfortable.
The Sunday brunch is excellent been before and will definitely go again
Dear Sue, thank you for taking the time to rate us highly. We are delighted that you enjoyed your experience with us and we look forward to seeing you back at Cecconi's soon. Cecconi's The Ned
V good. Enjoyed it a lot. Price and quality of food do not meet up.
Wonderful evening. Very busy and the lights dimmed a little early but that’s about it xx
Great service and good food in a lively City environment.
Dear Melanie, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your time with us recently. We are all very pleased that you enjoyed the experience. Cecconi's The Ned
Please congratulate Alessandra for her outstanding service.
Thank you for writing your review on Cecconi's recently. We’re pleased that our attention to service was acknowledged. Cecconi's The Ned
My favourite place in London right now.
Pasta is amazing
Dear Chobbsy, Thank you ever so much for your kind review. We are thrilled that Cecconi's surpassed your expectations and that you found the food delicious. We have passed along your comments to the kitchen team and I am sure they appreciate those kind words. Kindest regards, Cecconi's The Ned
Always a good environment for a chat with friends or business associates, tables are not "Crowded" service is, as always unobtrusive and efficient, and the overall ambience is soothing.
Yes I would. My friends & myself had a lovely evening there , great place to catch up & have great food.
I wish I was made aware in advance that on Sunday we can ONLY get the Sunday buffet and that we cannot order anything else than what’s offered on the plates out.
It was my birthday and we got to have simply a buffet food and we hoped for fine dining..., I wouldn’t offer my guests buffet food if only knew that’s the option for the day.
In addition the food wasn’t versatile, wasn’t best quality, not hot enough and really wouldn’t even value it for the money.
I have also requested a candle stick I never got it ...
Really wasn’t the place and the menu to celebrate bday I’d imagine.
If their food a la cart is the same quality as the buffet they offered, that would be huge disappointment!
Dear AlexS, Thank you for sharing your comments. Please accept our sincerest apologies that several areas from your experience were below your expectations. We aim to deliver and outstanding service and experience to all guests and have not succeeded on this occasion. Could I please ask you to contact me personally on mathias.turco@thened so we may discuss this matter in more detail and ensure that your concerns are addressed? With kindest regards.

Wonderful ambiance, energy and environment. Although dressing up isn't a must, it's a nice opportunity to do so and the with the live band and singing it felt like a Gatsby scene. I didn't feel like I received as much proactive attention from waiters upon being seated. Also, some other staff interactions were questionable but perhaps I'm being picky. Overall this is a great venue to bring anyone to, especially if planning to leave an impression and at the very least you'll leave with warm memories. A+
Beautiful place to go for a meal and further drinks. Expensive but very much worth for an amazing evening. Live band and staff were both incredible and a credit to the Ned.
Poor, food was cold😞
My partner and i went to celebrate our first valentines....9.30 pm on Friday 14th. To start i went for the Tuna tartare, my partner opted for the crab. The food wasn’t bad but i just expected a little bit more......the tuna was bordering on bland and presentation was ordinary. For mains we opted for a joint Tomahawk steak, this was cooked as per our request and a nice dish. The overall ambience was lively as opposed to romantic, instead of some nice background music in the Ned i found the live singer overpowering and really going for it, as a result i actually moved across table and sat side by side with my partner in between courses so i could hear what she was saying. Finally, the lighting wasn’t right......it would be been lovely to have mood lighting, i get that idea but Cecconis was dark, the only way to read the menu was to hold the one tea light on the table next to the menu to see it. Service was great. Atmosphere wonderful. Setting and ambience delightful, the old bank hall is a gorgeous building. I’d definitely frequent the Ned again but maybe more for cocktails and in a group rather than romance.
The venue was very noisy and the food was overpriced
