Great place, the service was a bit slow but other than that all great. Awesome food, good wines but could be a bit more choice.
Nice place for a quick snack, good location and the staff are quite nice as well
Really enjoyed the experience. The only minor point was the fact that people were put next to each other even though there were plenty of spaces elsewhere - could have given us a bit more privacy. If it was busy, then absolutely no issue, but not when it's not busy. Overall. Very very good experience.
The staff were absolutely lovely and some of the dishes were good. That’s sort of where the positives stop.
Most of the dishes lacked seasoning and were therefore fairly substandard to eat, some were not thought through (duck tongues were delicious but we gave up eating them because getting the bone out was such a challenge, de-bone them before serving and they would have been perfect), some were just not good (foie gras creme brûlée is a great concept but the texture of the creme brûlée is awful underneath the caramelised surface and isn’t reminiscent of foie gras in ANY way, the brioche accompaniment was burnt on top and just a nightmare to eat with odd crackling style pieces just stuck on top)
Most disappointingly, I only came here to try the duck doughnut, firstly they forgot about it and then when it came half was so burnt it was black and the other half was raw. In no way should it have been served but it was.
It’s cheap but if this is any reflection of the sister restaurant then I’m glad I didn’t pay their prices.
Amazing, great signature dish. Great view lovely oeople
Quite possibly one of the worst meals I’ve had in a long time. I’ve been looking forward to coming here for a while and to say it was disappointing is an understatement. The food and bill was served within 35 minutes at the cost of £2 a minute of my time. Food was cold and tasted awful. The combination of a rock hard duck doughnut that had clearly been over fried and sat all afternoon combined with a citrus purée was quite possible the worst dish I have ever eaten in my life. I hear you ask “why didn’t you complain” and that was down to the fact I didn’t have one good thing to say and felt embarrassed for them. At least the photos looked good.
Food excellent! Service not so efficient, not enough waiters .
Great alternative to the original Duck and Waffle. Not quite the same view as from top of the Heron Tower, but it is also cheaper for some excellent, creative food in the heart of London. Well worth a try.
Overall my experience was great, the food was amazing. Super delicious.
However, we got there 30mins before our booking to enjoy happy hour by the bar and they still gave us the table nearly 15mins late.
When we finally got the table the didn’t rush us so that slightly made up for the late table.
Felt welcomed upon entry.Lovely chilled atmosphere, staff friendly and efficient. I had no real idea what to expect with the food but was pleasantly surprised, i don't eat meat but really enjoyed the 'wild mushroom ravioli'(I will defo be sure to have that again)... reasonably priced for quality and presentation of food.
happy hour was good, very yummy dates wrap with bacon .
Very good experienced 😀
Interesting menu and lovely food
Love the cobcept, great food! Definitely would up over-eating because everything was so good!
The food is just okay. It’s very pricy for the food portion you are getting.e.g £15 for a duck leg with 1 fried egg and 2 quarter of waffle. And the taste is not special at all.
Food and coffee was good/not badly priced but atmosphere quite flat and service pretty poor - the front of house staff didn’t even say hello when welcoming us and or speak to us when we were being seated. Our waiter was better though. Fine for a quick bite in a relatively calm bit of Piccadilly but nothing remarkable.
Poor food & over priced. Can’t see the point of this place or believe it will still be around in 12 months time. Massively disappointed after hearing reviews of Duck & Waffle at Heron Tower.
Nothing special, food fair, service ok
Outstanding service. Great food. Very clean restaurant. Excellent drinks.
We wanted somewhere a bit quieter to eat after the theatre. The background music had too much base for us to hear each other across the table. The order was wrong, probably because no one could hear. My daughters food came when the rest of us had finished. The food was reasonable but nothing special. We all walked away disappointed.
Lovely experience. Excellent service and good food
We didn’t realise the happy hour only applied at the bar, this should have been made clear to us when we came in. Classic Duck and waffle was really good. Cocktails were good too.
Very limited menu and small portions, however the quality was pretty good and the service great.
Had high expectations and left very disappointed after our meal.
Great food and great atmosphere. The waiter came around to check on us regularly to ensure everything is good.
This location does not have the full Duck and Waffle menu, the staff however is friendly and careful as well as extremely accommodating. We were planning on ordering from the original Duck and Waffle location so we had to leave because there is next to nothing left that is not duck.
Good, interesting food, friendly service, and convenient. But can’t help compare to the original Duck & Waffle and it doesn’t feel as special. But it is well worth a visit if you crave the signature dish but can’t get a table at Heron Tower.
The food was good, with some interesting options for small plates, but the service was very slow which was disappointing as the restaurant was not full.
Average and a bit expensive for brunch. Food was too salty.
Go for breakfast and have the Full Elvis. Crazy good.
The duck that came with the duck and waffle dish itself was pretty disappointing. It was quite dry and that was the second time I’d had that dish at duck and waffle local. I thought that perhaps the first time was an exception and maybe the chef was having a bad day so I returned again but the duck was no different. I much prefer the duck at the original branch at Heron Tower. It was far more tender and juicy.
The waffles were average and the portion was small. Duck tongue was an interesting dish although slightly chewy on the inside, and the foie gras creme brûlée is acceptable if you like pate.
Good location. Was a hot day and all doors opened - no air con. Food was reasonably good but portion was small.
I had a leisurely lunch with my friend on Sunday, the food was good and service ok. My only gripe was that I had booked in advance but got moved from a nice table near the front of the restaurant right to the back of the room next to one of the tills which was a shame.
I was very spetical and thought it would be just hype but I was so pleasantly suprised. I really enjoyed the meal and the service was great!
I will definitely be back and will be recommending Duck and Waffle to others.
We were greeted by a friendly gent who seated us immediately. The waitress, however, changed her attitude towards us as soon as we opened our mouths and she figured out we are Americans. The menu is fairly small with few choices. I ordered two eggs any style and toast and I asked for the eggs over easy. When she acted puzzled, I changed the style to fried. She continued to act puzzled and asked me if I wanted them fried or poached. I repeated fried and she asked the same question again. I then told her that they could poach them. She then repeated to me poached and proceeded to make a face as though I was crazy. We were hardly attended to the entire meal and after 4 ignored attempts over the time of 15 minutes to flag her down to get our check, we were finally able to pay and leave. Needless to say, we did not add any additional service tip like we normally do and I’m quite sure that she believes Americans are stingy. The highlight of the meal was the duck and waffle that my husband ordered. Everything else was just par and not spectacular.
Nice atmosphere but overpriced for the size of the portions. We were told not to take our bar deinks to the table which I found unusual
Food was very nice as was our waiter. Would recommend the duck burger and the fois gras creme brûlée. We were disappointed though as we booked at table for 10pm post an evening at the Comedy Store through Open Table. We ordered starters and mains which all came out together which was irritating as the mains were cold by the time we got to them. Then we were told at 10.30pm that it was last orders and did we want anything more: we assumed this was for the kitchen, but after our meal we tried to order a coffee and were told that the machine was shut down and that we had known that it had been last orders. At 10.45pm the bright lights all came on and we were made to feel very unwelcome as we were trying to finish our bottle of wine. Utterly rushed evening in Central London. They shouldn’t take bookings after 9pm if they are so desperate to be completely shut down and closed by 11pm. I don’t think we would return and would rather try the main Duck and Waffle restaurant which is open 24 hours!
Attentive staff great food what more could you wish for...
The score would be 5stars, if only an unpleasant event with one of the staff members accidentally drooping a dirty fork on my sister’s dress didn’t ruin the overall experience.
I would also expect to be asked before topping up everyone’s glasses with (chargeable) still water over and over again, eventhough we had more drinks at the table.
Duck and waffle dish is still a winner. Fantastic service. Will be back.
Went for brunch with family and it was delicious- the bloody Mary’s were great too!
