1st time eating here so I definitely tried the Duck and Waffle. The duck was lovely and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The texture if the waffle was great too. For someone who doesn't like sweet with meat the syrup work reallt well with the duck and wasnt sickly. The 'Duck & Stormy' cocktail was very nice too.

The food was great, and it's a much more laid back atmosphere than the Duck and Waffle itself, both settings have their merits. My only complaint would be that when I asked for my reservation the woman who greeted us made fun of my name in the way kids did at primary school. You kind of expect more from adults, especially when you're paying for the privilege of dining. It was an uncomfortable start to the evening.

This was a great spot to get together with friends to celebrate! Food was delicious and the service was amazing!

I mentioned that we were celebrating a friends engagement and they were very accommodating and included a special message on dessert!

I’ve been to both the duck and waffle in the gherkin and local and can thoroughly recommend both!

An unusual twist on a casual eatery - had a slice of duck on the burger which was tasty, and the chips were divine! Great attentive service, nice and quiet at 7pm on Weds evening. Went for the 'Full Elvis' waffle for afters which was fantastic, and is highly recommended! Would prefer to try other places in the near future, but could see myself returning at some point...

We had a great meal at Duck & Waffle Local today. We didn't actually know about this local branch before coming across it on OpenTable but will now happily recommend it to others. Duck burger is recommended!

My friends and I decided to have brunch here on Saturday 12th May. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with a smile and professional service.

The food was amazing as were the drinks.

The staff were very attentive and the food quality was amazing.

I am already planning on a date to come back!

Food was great, service was bad. It wasn’t busy in there and there were plenty of staff working but they just didn’t really want to do any work. Whenever I asked if we could order more drinks the waitresses seemed annoyed.

Terrific restaurant- will definitely be back. Although Duck and Waffles are featured, there was something for everyone on the menu. The chips might be the best we’ve ever had and, unlike most places we’ve dined recently, they were served piping hot!

Very nice and innovative menu. Our lunch was lovely. The place itself is quite cool and modern. My only small concern is the seating was a bit cramped. We were effectively sharing with the couple next to us which may annoy some people

Check out the menu - it's not "health" food by any means, but it was really tasty. Standouts were the duck and waffle, the pork bao, the fries (duck fat fries!) and the Vietnamese salad. Good (but a little loud) music, and note that if you book a bigger party, you'll be seated at one of the huge tables in the middle, which might also involve others being seated at the same table. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the bill was super reasonable. Will definitely return.

I had been to Duck and Waffle in the city and wanted to try Duck and Waffle local. Food is good, not cheap I would say and I was a bit disappointed they didn't offer the happy hour at the tables as that could have been explained to us on arrival.
Service is friendly and duck and waffle is served

Not as interesting as their parent branch in heron towers. Food was okay. Plenty of seating. Service was much more laxed than I was expecting. If you can't get a reservation in the main branch but still want to try the duck and waffle it's not a bad shout. No pig ears though!

The food is very good and different. Loved the Chicken Satay and also the Wrapped Dates ‘bites’. The restaurant doesnt create a relaxed atmosphere - and I dont think its aims at that - more faster food. I would love restaurants to teach waiting staff how to pour wine - pour to the curve in the glass not fill up the glass as thought you ordered a glass in a pub.
A fun pre-theatre restaurant.

High really high hopes for this, but sadly really disappointed. Tough squid, watery fois gras, bland vegan options, a staff that didn't deal well with fair complaints... that was some of the main comments from this group testing this restaurant.

Doesn’t even come close to comparing to the real D&W. Food was rushed. Service not helpful. Food was over salted or flavorless. Too many good restaurants in London to go here.

After already enjoying Duck & Waffle I thought I’d give this a go. Whereas Heron Tower is great for an occasion this is a lot more laid back and perfect for a less formal occasion. As you walk in there is a really nice bar which we started the night at. Also because it was a warm day they open up all the bifolding doors, which made our dining experience kind of alfresco which added to the ambience.

Food was similar items to Duck & Waffle and similar standard. Really delicious and quite pricey but not to the extent that you feel ripped off. I’d rather pay for good food than have cheap rubbish food.

We liked every dish. Highlights were deep fried polenta with Parmesan and truffle, duck jam doughnut (this is huge), Vietnamese salad with crispy duck, manchego and ham wrapped dates. My favourite was definitely the pork bao though.

I asked for a bottle of tap water and the waitress gave this weird reason why I couldnt have it. So then I asked for a large glass of tap water, apparently still not possible. We could either pay £2 for unlimited filtered water which you could have a bottle of on the table or, the option I elected for, have the waitress regularly come and top you up. In fairness she did. But such a weird rule.

Service was largely ok but our waitress’ English wasn’t great. Something you’re used to in London, but maybe not when paying these prices. It also took us ages to get the bill even though they were stood around chatting.

Great food and service! I was in London for the weekend and having not made any reservation for Brunch Sunday, Duck and Waffle local was one of the only places with a table available. Not expecting much, I booked the table and whilst booking online, mentioned that it was my friend's birthday. We were very pleasantly surprised with the menu and adored the foie gras crème brulee. Once the food came out, the dish of waffles had a lit candle on the top and a few waitresses came to our table to sing happy birthday. This was such a nice surprise given that I had only made them aware of the birthday under an hour before we arrived. The staff were just so lovely and attentive, constantly topping up our water throughout the meal.
I was surprised at how reasonable and delicious the food was- would definitely be returning

This was a really nice little sister restaurant with a great menu. Food was amazing and cocktails tasty!
However some of the front of house staff were incredibly rude and unpleasant. That is something that should be worked on.
Also beware happy hour only applies at the bar not at a table.

Have now been to both Duck and Waffles in London and both as good as each other. Food was amazing and service was good.

Slight mix up over nibbles before small plates but didn’t spoil a thing. This was a great way to spend my birthday.

The breakfast beni and duck and waffle was really good. We also tried the banana waffle for dessert - which was great as well. The service was great - non intrusive but attentive. Will definitely be going back.
