Very rushed service - all courses served very quickly with no break between courses. Did not make it a good dining experience.

Staff were not friendly , and didn’t want to help accommodate.

I have been to this restaurant years back and really liked it but both food and service have gone down hill - I would not go back.

Service, good and ambience has really gone down hill. This used to be my favorite place when I lived here ten years ago. Now? Decor needs a refurb, service is sloppy and food uninspiring. Hard pass.

It’s been too long since my last visit (2004!), bank in the day when Ian Pengelley was chef. A lot has changed but it is still completely brilliant. Back sooner, I promise.

The E&O is always so consistently outstanding. The menu updates are terrific and Juan, our waiter on several recent occasions, is so professional and patient as we make our way through the new items on offer. The E&O is a regular stop for us and will continue to be!

Paper table-covers kind of didn't work at that price point and it didn't feel like it was part of a deliberate concept.

The food was OK but not exciting

Lighting too strong

£120 for two with one £35 bottle of wine excessive for all of the above reasons

Shocking attitude of the waitress. One in particular with the piercing in her face. How can you employ someone that has such an attitude. Disgusted by it. She’s dropped my food on the floor and still put in on my table. Just disgusting. So rude with a bad attitude.

So disappointed with our experience. Our meal for 2 was over £260 and for that I expected a lot lot more! Absolutely ruined our night with the attitude of this lady. Such a bad experience at E&O, thoroughly disappointing...... I’d love to hear the managers thoughts......

Felt like a fast food experience. For our 18:30 reservation they had us out of our seats by 19:31. Drink order was botched. Lights were turned off for a while then turned back on. Food was very good, but the entire experience felt rushed, at every turn. Would never return in person, but would definitely order the sushi for takeaway, which was excellent.

What has happened to E & O? Has it changed hands? We have been coming here for family celebrations for over 10 years but there was nothing celebratory about our visit on Thursday night. They were very keen to sell us a plate of Edamame Beans as soon as we arrived but really slow in taking our order for pre-dinner drinks. The remaining service was very poor. Also what has happened to the menu, not so much choice and some firm favourites taken off such as the wonderful belly pork dish and the ginger & ... gyoza. Really disappointed.

I couldn't believe such a pricey high end restaurant attracts so many kids on a Sunday afternoon. Beware! (I had 2 sprogs myself). The dim sum is not that authentic but it's ok and the ambience is chic

E&O is one of my "go to" restaurants for guest visiting London as well as for special occassions. It is trendy, buzzy, full of stylish people, and has a great bar. What's not to like? Oh, and the food is really good Asian fusion that is meant for sharing. Lots of small plates which makes dinner a cooperative affair. It's not cheap, of course, but these kind of places never are. And it has a decent wine list but the focus is clearly the cocktails.

It didn’t start very well as the staff had us sit for 15 minutes in the bar as they were busy with customers leaving and barely acknowledged us during the process. Very unfriendly hosts but lovely barmaid. Fortunately the table waitress was also great and friendly. The food is tasty, although a bit pricy for dim sum, and the selection should possibly omit the Japanese fare as it is not credible to efficiently and authentically serve sushi, dim sum and fusion (though a lot of places would want you to believe it is). Nevertheless, a great place for Sunday lunch which can expand to a little walk around Notting Hill.

We shared three starters: the spicy tuna roll was a bit quirky (not the standard rice around it) but excellent, and the fried squid and vegetable tempura were both very good. For the main, DW thought the prawn curry a little under spiced but then she's Thai so that applies to nearly everything. I had the spicy tofu and enjoyed it. Overall thought I thought the food was pretty good and would perhaps suit a small group sharing even better. Service was very good considering the place was packed. It was certainly lively, but the noise wasn't too bad. All things considered reasonable value for money too. I would recommend giving it a go.
