We had a charming and very attentive waiter who made our visit excellent - thank you x
Great location and ambiance! Food and service are superb. Easy to spend a nice evening with friends, cocktails and music.
Amazing location, excellent service but poor and unimaginative choice of vegetarian dishes plus the cost of pasta or risotto was the same as fish dishes
Amazing venue and gorgeous food. The service was a bit slow.
Food acceptable but nothing higher standard. Slow service and poor value for money.
Difficult to catch the eye of waiting staff.
Tasteless food, poor presentation, waiting 45 minutes for lunch
Sunday night at Cecconi's was really enjoyable as a whole, and nice to be in a buzzy space in the otherwise quiet City. My friend and I had been wanting to visit the NED for a while, to see the dining hall with its beautiful decor.
The service was good although could have been a bit more attentive and the live music was really fun and created a great atmosphere. We knew there would be live performers and that it would be louder than if there had been without.
My friend's rib-eye was great. Our sides of courgette fries and roast potatoes were well made too. Drinks were also nice. But the big let down was my beef tartare. I have this dish as a treat from time-to-time at nice restaurants and this time even opted for the +£10 truffle option! The tartare was bland / un-seasoned and the truffle didn't add anything at all so was a waste of money. It may have been a one-off so I wouldn't let that affect my overall opinion - but I was a little disappointed and would definitively choose differently next time!
I would recommend a drink at the bar and to listen to the jazz. However, the drinks are expensive but that's expected at a place like this in the City. What I, and our party, were very disappointed with was (a) no mention of a buffet on your website for a Sunday - we wouldn't have booked had we known; (b) the pasta was cold when it reached our table and the portion size was just ridiculous - two tiny meatballs in each bowl; and (c) the sharing pizza to start with - I'd take it or leave it. Cecconi's has a good name in Mayfair and we were bitterly disappointed with our experience with the quality, presentation and overall offer of the food.
We had breakfast here. We arrived a bit early, there were not many guests. Still it took some persuading to convince the girl from the reception desk to seat us at a table we liked. Se asked a waiter who of course complied with our wish. We were then served by Simona, who was lovely and cheerful. Little mishaps in the kitchen (miraculously losing an egg from my eggs benedict). And then serving the corrected version on a steel plate instead of a normal ceramic one). All in all this place seems to be a bit less flawless, compared to the Burlington Place branch.
Was nice bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbnbnbbbBbbbbbbbb
So incredibly noisy it’s not possible to enjoy! I love a party and good atmosphere.. but the music was so incredibly loud you can’t actually talk as a table, you can only speak singularly to the person next to you, and even then at a push. Don’t really get it.... it was awful.
We had a very nice evening at Cecconi’s. The food and service were excellent. The drinks were quite expensive.
average food in a nice atmosphere but service rather inadequate
Very good quality mains and dessert. Calamari could have been a touch less rubbery but the Mushroom pasta was lovely, the Pistachio Torte was equally as nice. Value is what you'd expect in London, £3.50 a bottle of still water etc but decent for a three course meal for two.
The setting and food was lovely. The music from the centre stage was deafening. It was a special occasion and we were needing to shout at each other to be heard. We hadn’t selected from the menu and asked for an extra 5 minutes, this turned into a 20 minute wait for a waiter to return. Waiting staff pleasant but don’t know how to serve and clear properly, leaning across us all the time.
Way to noisy which made our conversation very difficult to conduct. Our chicken was way too salty and the courgette frites much too greasy.
Poor service and food was average. Expected more, as the other restaurants at The Ned are nice and the staff were very attentive. It wasn’t particularly busy, so it was a shame.
Fantastic food and service with live music at the ned
Was ok - pizza nice and pleasant service but slow. Rather preoccupied with the corporate tables full of business men than a group of ladies having lunch. Wouldn’t go again to eat but perhaps for a drink
We have done in the past, however, this breakfast meeting we had was nothing short of poor. Cold eggs and congealed sauce on the eggs benedict. Not impressed.
Fantastic all round. The waiters at Cecconi were very nice, amusing, helpful with suggestions. They entertained our poor attempts of Italian! Sadly couldn't go to vault due to timing and that we weren't guests at the hotel, however experience was not tainted. The bar staff at Cecconi were great. I had a custom Cocktail made which I think she be on the menu and named Prima-Donna!!
Many thanks and see you again soon.
Amazing food and amazing service. Incredible ambience and vibe in both Cecconis and The Ned. Truly 5 star service from Sidorel who was attentive the entire night.
Great food and ambience!
Had an overnight stay at The Ned & we are in cecconis on sat evening . Great atmosphere with a super jazzy swing style band & singers . Lively but we were still able to hold a conversation . Food very tasty & plentiful but not Michelin style which we weren’t expecting . Very comfy seating & would return .
My only gripe is that there is only a small choice of cocktails in the restaurants although available in the bars .
Wonderful place, good food & wine, great service and nice music. GO!
Buono il cibo, e il servizio, locale molto frequentato e piacevole . Equilibrato rapporto qualità prezzo
Really disappointed with the whole experience. Starter could have been from a chain restaurant. Main meal well, I wouldn't expect to be served a charcoal steak. Potatoes were like aunt bessies....
Excellent menu of negroni to begin with. The barrel aged negroni was delicious! The food is very good and the overall experience is great. Nice bread selection too.
A great lunch with friends loved everything about it we will be back
Starting with the good. The waiting staff and management were excellent.
The food was very average, fish over cooked with food generally under seasoned.
However, what spoiled our experience was the music which was of very dubious quality and so loud that we couldn’t have a conversation or communicate with the waiting staff. We were meeting our daughter for a long overdue and much anticipated catch up which proved impossible so we left early to be able to have a conversation.
I talked to the waiting staff and management regarding this issue. They were understanding and sympathetic, offering to pass my comments onto their management.
Great venue... great food ... very popular... but very rushed.... starters and main served within 45 minutes of arrival and then offered desert menu as soon as plates were cleared... had to ask them to slow down. Waiter then had to check to see if we had enough time to have a break before we ordered dessert.
Food was really good-tasty and just the write amount. Desert were also really good. Service was hit and miss. The waiter started off being very attentive but as the meal went on we couldn’t get anyone’s attention to order deserts we waited 25 mins to order them and then also getting the bill was also more difficult than it should have been.
Nice food, wine, service and atmosphere but the music of some of the bands (especially the rock band) during the Monday New Music Night made it impossible too have a conversation with more than 3 people
We had an amazing anniversary! Complimentary prosecco & dessert was given. Food was great, right temperature & quantity. The service was impeccable & we will definitely be back. The manager I think made us feel great
nice food,great atmosphere
the cecconi'e restaurant at the ned is an experience, waiter Riccardo together all the team are spectaculars...we are very glad to know the Gm Matthias and FB manager Mariano
The Ned I think it is one of the best iconic hotel in London ...! compliments at the property
The food is amazing and totally worth the money but to charge £43 for a bottle of prosecco was very overpriced in my opinion. Service is very good and the atmosphere is great with the live band in the middle of The Ned.
I had to send my food back as it was a plate full of oil and grease
Great service, unrivalled Italian food. Perfect atmosphere
