With many years of experience both in the kitchen cooking and at the table eating we have come to understand the importance of one in relation to the other. Our aim in the kitchen, as always, is to deliver great pleasure in the dining room – and at Elystan Street we aim to achieve this through serving pure, seasonal, ingredient led, gimmick free dishes which are full of vitality and flavour.
For many people a truly epic dining experience is simply not complete without a glass or two of wine. We have compiled a savvy list of both crowd pleasers and niche wines alike – with wonderful bottles from some of the world’s finest wine makers. Without pomp or ceremony our wine waiters will do all they can to find a gem to lift your day – whatever your mood or budget. We make some mean cocktails too and have some fine London beers to offer.
Very attentive service in a lovely restaurant environment. Food was delicious and very well done, but wasn’t mind blowing.
Lovely setting - beautiful dining room. Food was wonderfully presented and tasted delicious but we missed a bit of the theatre - there was very limited description of the dishes when served and the cheese selection retained anonymity throughout. However would definitely return
We had the FT menu it was outstanding
Fantastic flavors in the food - the almond soup was out of this world - the cod perfectly cooked - my guest had the artichoke salad with the truffle it was a delight ! And the duck 😍😍😍😍 service was smooth , staff knowledgeable and helpful. Modern and trendy interior . Definitely worth the price
Good food with somewhat slow service at time. Very noisy too
We'd visited this restaurant when it was owned by Tom Aikens but it now looks a lot different. Lighter & brighter but it was a sunny summer's evening this time and it was a dull and rainy evening last time. We had also been to the chef's previous restaurant (The Square) a few times so were very much looking forward to the menu and food at Elystan Street. The food was good but we were slightly underwhelmed by the menu. Perhaps we were expecting too much given our previous experiences? It was also my partner's birthday that day and I had let the restaurant know via OpenTable. I trust they got the message because no-one acknowledged it at all - nothing special arrived not even a petit four with our coffee. Having said that, the service overall was excellent and attentive without being intrusive. It was also almost fully booked for a Monday evening.
Excellent restaurant and well deserving a Michelin star! We wanted something that was going to be very good for a business dinner but not too formal. This restaurant fit the bill and everyone was very happy with the dinner. The dining room is very open and nice without being stuffy. Also great location in London. Will go again.
The restaurant is calm and relaxing. Service is efficient and friendly. Food is very good.
A very enjoyable meal
