Coal office is now my favourite restaurant in London! We ordered pretty much every thing on the menu and there wasn’t 1 dish that we didn’t like....not even 1 mediocre dish! The service is also great all of the staff are super friendly. It’s a gorgeous restaurant in a great location. I can’t wait to go back!

Lovely lunch, very good COVID processes. Lots of extra treats from the kitchen. Our waitress was delightful. The food was really delicious and sitting outside in the sunshine was great.
We cycled there and had a really lovely lunch.
We will be coming back.
Thank you.

Coal office has done a fantastic job re-opening. My friend and I sat upstairs and the tables were spaced and the service was attentive. And whilst the menu was smaller the food was delicious. A great way to return to eating out!

Service was really great, our waitress was friendly and went the extra mile by bringing us a dish to try, smiling lots and letting me know what is/isn’t suitable for pregnant women.
The food was lovely and beautifully presented, especially loved the octopus, the ravioli and the brioche bread. Wasn’t a big fan of the kebab as it was like meatballs but that’s a personal preference. Decor was lovely and music was authentic. Overall, really enjoyed our anniversary dinner here!

Excellent food as usual and exceptional customer service. We arrived 5 minutes after 10, when the kitchen was meant to be closed already because we were stuck in traffic for over an hour (our reservation was at 9.30). They waited for us and served us with a smile (behind masks).
Tables were spaced out and everyone was covered, felt very safe and planned with a lot of care.
And the food was superb as usual. Best octopus we have ever had!
Couldnt have been better!!

I had the most incredible evening at the Coal Office. The food was exquisite, and the chefs took the utmost care with every single detail. Staff are amazing, fun and lively vibe. I recommend sitting on the high seats so you can be close to the action.

Great environment, we were in the restaurant and had more space than those in the bar. Loved the food - light, tapas type food. The bread was gorgeous and warm.
Wine is expensive but we got the cheapest and it was lovely

Excellent service. Greeted very warmly, sat at the bar and given Complimentary Arak and a Broccoli dish. Both delicious. Sat in a lovely spot on the water side. The restaurant is gorgeous and has a lovely atmosphere. Amazing service from Andreas, who practically ordered all our food, on our request. He made exceptional choices and is just so nice! The food was flavourful, plentiful and beautifully presented. I particularly enjoyed the octopus, aubergine tartar and Tahini ice cream but everything was delicious!
Thankyou again for a lovely evening!

This place is amazing. The food and flavours knock your socks off. Nice varied menu to suit all tastes.
The service is also very good - professional, friendly, and they ensure you don't order too much.
Sitting near the open kitchen is also very interesting.
We were there for lunch but will definitely go back in the evening, when the place is a bit more lively and possibly there is an even wider selection on the menu.
Highly recommended.
