Food is excellent.

Service is nice, but very, very slow. It took nearly an hour to take our order, and when you're outside and in the rain, having to reminding the staff to take your order, it makes the experience less enjoyable.

The outside area isn't set up adequately for eating outside in the cold and rain, which unfortunately is the requirement during these Covid times. I'd recommending eating here, but only when eating inside is permissible.

As we have been out so little this year we decided to make this our Christmas treat and push the boat out so we both had three courses and boy were they good, We particularly enjoyed the octopus which is actually the most expensive thing o nth ,end but so tender and with a fantastic truffle sauce. The desserts were very large and so although it was quite expensive we thought it was still excellent. The waitress was delightful although with her accent through the mask not always easy to understand.

I love this restaurant! I've been twice before for brunch, it's my first time going for dinner and I will be back again. Amazing food! We shared a few small plates and two middle size plates, everything was as good as the next. Super friendly staff. Cool down-to-earth vibe. Reasonable price for a wonderful experience.

Coal office provides the real elevated Israeli food experience I've come to know and love from back home. I feel at home there and the chef always treats us with a little something extra. The food is divine, service excellent. Can't get any better than this

By far my favourite restaurant in London. The service and staff is impeccable, the food delicious and value for money is really fair. The ambience is fun and upbeat. I often try and walk in just to have the black tahini ice cream - it’s to die for. Highly recommend.

Friendly & attentive staff. Lovely decor and ambience. Clean & COVID-19 distanced. The food was outstanding, bursting with flavour. A taster starter arrived as a special from the chef and it was absolutely delicious, an unexpected treat. Every dish was a culinary delight tbh but the Tuna Dak Dak was outstanding. Will definitely come again in the future. Thank you :)

The food at Coal Office is a delight; interesting, provocative combinations of flavours and textures. Has lifted Middle Eastern cuisine to new heights. The design of the restaurant is the most tasteful kind of modern industrial with gorgeous lighting. Staff are charming
