Very nice food for my daughter's 18th Birthday brunch. We were very well looked after by Annalisa.

We were really disappointed with the duck and waffle dish. The duck was hard and had little actual duck. We had high expectations but they weren't met.

Good service which was great as we had a theatre booking. Duck burger and fries were great. The date and bacon wraps as well as the duck wings were very sweet and didn’t taste particularly great, which was disappointing.

I was quite disappointed probably because my expectations were high after what I’d heard about it.
There were a lot of staff with very few tables occupied but only one member seemed able to take orders. Having said that, the waiter was lovely and knowledgeable.
Our first courses were good but the second courses were a bit flavourless and I found myself having to add as much seasoning as possible to bring out some flavours.

The duck shawarma was great but I’d probably share it next time with few starters as it was way too large a portion for me - and I’m a greedy guts 😉

Good food. When we walked in, the hostess said there were no tables (although I could clearly see some empty ones). 5 seconds later I made a booking for that time slot on open table and told her I did. She gave me a look of disdain but lo and behold, suddenly a table was available within 1 minute because I’d booked on the app. Service was terribly slow. Food was a little cold

Perfect choice for a Sunday brunch between Xmas and New Year. The restaurant is open and spacious, and everything was very clean.
Great choice of food and everything nicely presented, tasty, good portion sizes, served quickly and everything prepared fresh.
No pressure to leave, so brunch over a couple of cocktails with friends was a wonderful start to the day.

Food was great and looked amazing. The only thing I would improve is that I asked for a window seat but wasn’t offered/given one when I arrived.

By accident I booked the local Duck&waffle not the Heron tower one. When we stepped in the service was prompt and we were shown to our table. Our server was very nice and helpful + fast, considering that the place was pretty much at full capacity. The food was excellent, cocktails had happy hour prices, what else does one need? To begin with I was hoping for a romantic, quiet date night but that was going to be impossible so we had a lovely + lively dinner instead.

I chose Duck and Waffle Local for a meal after going to a show because I'd been to the one at Heron Tower and found it to be good. Unfortunately "Local" doesn't meet those standards. A limited menu (not necessarily a bad thing) disappointed with our choices of duck wings (messy and fatty) and Duck Shawarma which was dominated by mayonnaise. Wouldn't return.

Great location, busy enough to have a good atmosphere but not heaving, fabulous food and cocktails, perfect for a relaxed Sunday brunch. Big portions of tasty food. Mac n cheese, crispy duck tenders, spicy cauliflower and duck waffle and the caramel apple brioche dessert were all excellent.
