Good not as good as last. The music was ridiculously loud, so loud we found it hard to have any conversation. Why the management feel it necessary to have a like a club at 2am is unsure. I won’t go back now based on music being too loud and food not as good. Our waiter was amazing tho .

Requested a special table at booking as an anniversary meal. Arrived 10 mins late due to transport to be told we should have phoned .. despite table still being held and there’s a 15 min grace period! Put on a table right opposite a door!
However food was delicious, waiter was very pleasant. It’s expensive for small plates but at least good quality dishes.

Great ambiance (LA vibes) and food (highly recommend the mushroom toast)!!!

I’ve taken off a star in service because our server was very nice but slow (as an example it took her ages to let us know that the kitchen said the dessert we want it out).

Very hard to get a table last minute so book in advance!

A wonderful culinary experience, made even better by our attentive and funny waiter, Paulo. Gold exceeded our expectations - we’d thought that, being so trendy (almost ludicrously so), the food would be sub par, but everything we ordered proved delicious; the flavours were well-balanced and each dish skilfully executed. Highly recommend.

A lovely restaurant and decor, but completely let down by the service, or lack there of.
Starter plates were never cleared away, we were never asked if we wanted another drink, our main courses arrived 20 minutes apart so we ended up eating one after the other and I had to stand up and get another waiter to even get some salt.
I had high expectations and was extremely disappointed.

I was quite disappointed by our visit to Gold.
I had heard great things and had booked a table for 2 people weeks in advance! The visit was to celebrate my birthday.

The overall experience was average, the food was really good ! But other elements let it down.

We were sitting at a table shoved against a wall and very squished with people right on top of us. Our table was unstable and rocked badly each time you leant on it, I tried to ask if we could move tables and the answer was no. Which was disappointing considering I had requested a nice table on my booking.
I tried to explain that I was feeling uncomfortable and claustrophobic and was just ignored which was not appreciated.

Our waiter was nice but couldn’t recommend any dishes and rushed us through our meal ordering, the whole evening felt rushed.

The hostesses at the door were not very friendly and ignored us when we left.

This is why I say the overall experience was not great and I would not say that it was worth the amount of money we paid for our dinner!

This was were I choose to celebrate a special night and we did not feel seen or cared and accommodated for, which is what you expect from a restaurant of that standard.

I think if we went in a bigger group and had a better table and more time, so we were not rushed, then it might have been better.

Love this place. The downstairs garden room is popular and clearly the staff expect all diners to want to sit in the garden room. I arrived early, lunch for 2, and was surprised to hear that we were getting a better table and both members of staff were gushing about how amazing this table would be. Went to the first floor which is bright and airy and lots of tables and we were the only ones there. Which quite frankly wasn’t an issue for me. People aren’t stupid, just be honest about the availability of the garden room. But it didn’t stop there ‘the garden room is very popular but it’s awful down there and really cold’. Enough already. Apart from that, the staff are very friendly, chatty and knowledgeable about the menu which I love. Ok so you also swapped out the nectarines for pears on burrata dish. This is fine but the pears were hard and charred. Not great and did not have enough dressing. However, the chicken and nduja…was great as always…I must try something else next time!

Food was so delicious. Certain dishes naturally better than others. The stratictella and cabbage dishes were insane. The cauliflower was average and the chicken was yummy. Portions are bigger than anticipated. Service waa good even though they were busy. The drinks were spectacular and the place and ambience were beautiful. Would definitely return.

Went for lunch with a friend. A beautiful setting but the tables in the back were placed way too tight, not much privacy and acoustic not great, rather noisy. The plants look great but some tables/seats were squeezed below low hanging branches.
The food was very tasty, enjoyed the ‘tapas’ style menu but the plates came out too fast so that the meal felt a bit rushed.
The staff felt a bit short fused, a little more patience and understanding for need of comfort would have made the experience a lot more enjoyable.
Overall a really nice venue but in my view it would benefit from reducing the number of tables and slowing down the pace a bit.
I will not be rushing back and didn’t think it would make for a nice lunch venue for a group as it’s hard to understand each other without having to raise your voice significantly.

Food was fresh and delicious but may have benefitted from at least one potato dish to accompany the steak.
Tables crammed in too tightly so it was tricky to navigate the other diners and the staff, without knocking into something or someone. Otherwise a pleasant evening.

The ambience, interiors, and food at Gold are all great, though the staff have such a noticeable urgency about them, I'm always so aware of them barging into conversations without any awareness or consideration to the diners. Every single time I've dined there, I've felt like 'a table number'. For the price, the service needs to be a lot less obvious about 'getting the table done'.

One of the best restaurants in London! Getting everything right- the food, the service and ambience. Its a sharing menu and its one of the only restaurants with this concept where the portions are big! Staff are all lovey and the food is delicious.

The restaurant and staff are lovely. The service was very good and overall our dining experience was positive. The reason the food only scored two was because the chicken was not thoroughly cooked and the meat was chewy and pink in places. This was off putting and unsatisfactory for the price paid.

Lively ambience.. indoor/ outdoor feel and sliding roof open for good weather. Lovely plants and open bar where you can see the chefs cooking the meal with the log pizza type fire. I had the sea bream which was delicious and carrots which were the best I’ve ever tasted. My hubby had the (honeymoon)melon and ham which was perfect. it would be nice if there was some soup on the menu but what we had was delicious.
