Lively place with good service. Food was tasty but not very refined. Thought it would be better given it's the sister of the main Duck and Waffle, plus it's not cheap.
Food was very average and service appallingly poor - shame as it’s a fun venue otherwise
the food was good, the service also, but the store manager (pregnant) was very unfriendly
Booked to go there before the theatre, and one of us was late. They still managed to get the food to us really quickly after ordering, and the food was very well done. I'm pretty sure that it's cheaper than the one at Bishopsgate as well. Staff were friendly and efficient. It's not incredibly smart, but it was definitely worth it.
Visited for weekday brunch. Duck and waffles and home made granola yogurt was excellent. If being overly critical the duck was just slightly dry, but in reality it was still very good. They even brought over a nice complimentary birthday treat which was unexpected. Ambience was really nice and not too busy but had a good level of people. Overall very good.
Good food, prompt delivery. Very confusing signage with regards to happy hour specials, not well signed that it only applies to sitting at the bar. Staff seemed indifferent to this.
We really enjoy the food and the atmosphere but the service wasn’t really good. Our waitress wasn’t friendly and the service really slow. The all staff forgot about us and we have to case them for desert menu and the bill
Recently went to Duck & Waffle Local, having been to the Duck & Waffle in Bishopsgate twice previously. Each visit has been faultless - there's no compromise on food at this restaurant, despite the different location/ambience - great value for money, excellent service & fit for any occasion.
Poor service. Small portions. Over priced. And really boring food. Sounds interesting but when it arrives it’s small and not amazing in any way. Really awful.
Everything was delicious and the staff were exceptional. My date and I were very pleased and quite full
Newly opened was very quite for breakfast. Duck and waffle dish was as good here as in the main city resteraunt. Duck egg cocette also very good and rich, if slightly strong for breakfast.
Food wasn’t amazing, service very slow. They sat us at the back of the restaurant in a corner. Over priced for what it was.
Overpriced for what it is. Would not recommend for any occasion.
With the exception of a gentleman who appeared to be a manager overseeing everything, customer service is non existent. Probably the 1st time I've eaten an entire meal without being asked how it was. My duck and waffle was served with a broken egg pouring over my duck and waffle. The waitress was more concerned with the next table to listen. The rosemary seasoned fries were so over seasoned, I only tasted rosemary. Disappointing for a one time experience and I wouldn't refer a friend.
There is nothing wrong with it. Food is ok but I don't get why duckandwaffle is such a hip place. For some time, I wanted to book breakfast/brunch at the luxury place high up in the City and am now glad I first tried the simple place on Haymarket. It was all fair but nothing special and quite expensive. Simple food prepared by people on minimum wage, friendly service. It works and was quite nice but for the money there are much better food options around in Soho and elsewhere .
Overall it was a good lunch.
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.
