Went to check out this place for the first time with our friends and honestly rather disappointed with the service. My friend is pregnant and requested bottled water but they kept bringing filtered water. The waiter then spilled a drink over one of our phones. They had run out of so many items on the menu and it was only 4pm. My fiancé ordered a fish which took 40 min and then we were told that another waiter had mistakenly given it to another table so we had already finished all our food by the time he got his meal. Also they had forgotten to explain the concept to us when we came in which is “sharing and food comes as it’s ready”. There are positives though! The place is lovely- so beautiful and doesn’t feel like you are in London. Very nice vibe. Food is good but not mind blowing if I’m honest.

The atmosphere and decor are it’s best features. But sadly service and management let it down. At 8pm on a Saturday night 5 items were sold out including the only vegetarian main. Service for drinks and clearing plates was painfully slow. In the end, after 40minutes if nobody checking on us, we asked for our mains plates to be cleared, some more water and the bill in one go! By which point we didn’t have the patience to consider dessert! Not great when you get just a two hour table slot.
The food is good, but not quite River Cafe amazing. And they just need to get that service smoothed out, the Nottinghill crowd has high standards! It looks fabulous so instagrammers will love it! We will give it a few months to iron out the kinks and try again.

Service was not great, the staff is not well trained apart from the manager. We asked for butter for the bread, didn’t come. We asked for serving cutleries, didn’t come. It’s a great cool place, need more experienced stuff though. The manager was great, gave us free shots and dessert because it’s my birthday.

I used to really love this place when it was a pub and restaurant and pleased to say I wasn’t disappointed with the new refurbished restaurant/bar! Relieved also that it wasn’t now over run with kids, pushchairs and pets as so many other restaurants are these days! Food and service were excellent! Not too noisy either so we could have a good conversation!

Everything about our afternoon and then evening here was perfect. We stumbled upon this gem while on a walk on a Saturday afternoon. It was packed, so we sent our two sons into the market and my husband and I had a drink or two at the bar. We chatted with the bartender and one of the amazing chefs (can't recall his name, but I believe he was from Cyprus), and after watching the food prep and enjoying the atmosphere, knew we had to have dinner here. The restaurant was booked solid. However, the hostess told us with a wink that if we returned at six on the dot she "might" be able to seat us. We returned at six, and had a delicious dinner. From the stuffed chicken, to the rabbit ravioli and the fish filet, everything was bryond excellent. The FOOD!!! But even more than the food, the staff was incredible. Cheers to the smiling hostess with the long black hair, the chef from Cyprus, the waitress with the long light brown hair that came to say good bye to us, the waitress with the "DeNiro mole" piercing, and all the others- you all made us feel so welcome, and gave us a terrific sendoff back to the States! To the owners of this establishment: you have something wonderful going on!

It was good food. However, charging £4 for two slices of sourdough bread is excessive. The steak was slightly cold.


That said, I will still come here again. The waiters are very attentive and full of smiles. The sharing concept works very well.

Beautiful interior. Worried all the plants will die when they don’t water them enough, many seemed too dry already. The food was bland. We tried a range of dishes and were not impressed. In London there are much better options. The wine list was wonderfully diverse but not organized. I would not return.

The food was exceptional. The ingredients fresh and very well prepared in such a creative and delicious way. It is very hot when the sun shines in through the glass ceiling especially since everything is made on a grill and can get very hot. It is more pleasant when they are able to slide the glass ceiling back.

It was fine, delicious food and great service but we really didn’t like our table - way too squashed and by chance I was sitting close to a colleague which was quite inhibiting. The staff were really not interested in moving us to one of the empty tables, otherwise it would have been a much better experience. Not sure if you can request tables on booking but I doubt it as we only got as far as requesting the garden area.

2nd night after opening, however, food was delicious and team were very knowledgeable. Prices also reasonable considering high standard of cooking, level of investment in the building and location.
