Great vibe, nice staff, sadly underwhelming food. I was looking forward to it most, but it was just all a bit bland.

Loved the ambience. Great food, really huge portions. We over-ordered like mad. Reasonably priced.
We found it VERY noisy but overall great.

Sadly I have eaten at Gold three times. Twice before was amazing. This time it was really basic and not great food. Under seasoned, undercooked and basically a lack of love. Please improve Gold as you were great.

Great restaurant a bit show off though. The food is innovative and tasty, served in generous portions. Be ready to plan ahead as you will experience a month wait to get a table. Will recommend.

First time ever that we were asked to leave a restaurant after the 2-hour slot allocated to us. I do not think it's acceptable when you are paying these high prices for food, so i wouldn't go back. We didn't even have time to order a dessert.

From the moment I stepped into the restaurant I enjoyed the dining experience. Fun and energetic atmosphere at the bar whilst the restaurant was relaxed yet 'buzzy.' The wait staff were attentive and their knowledge of the menu was extensive and impressive. The food itself was incredibly flavoursome and of a generous portion size. This is now one of my favourite London restaurants.

Fabulous lunch at Gold. The venue is the hotspot of Notting Hill and worth the long wait to get a reservation. Food is inventive, fresh and generous. The wine list is probably on the pricier side and could do with thinning out but the variety is good. The service is amazing. Go!

We loved the decor, seating, vibe, food and staff.

We went as a family of four (not many other families in there) and we all loved it - although I think the adults appreciated the quality of food and attentive service a little bit more!

We loved the sharing plates and food coming as and when ready. It was all delicious and had great little touches to the presentation or texture which were big wins.

5 out 5 and looking forward to next time.

We had a lovely lunch at Gold. The food was very good quality & service was friendly and attentive. We sat near the bar and the fire made it a cosy and welcoming place. It’s relaxed yet smart.

This is one of my favourite restaurants in London, unfortunately we didn't get a table in the area we requested so ate in the bar instead.
But the service and food as always was very good.

Staff were fantastic, helpful when we nearly ordered far too much food! Decor and ambience is great, every dish we had was delicious and interesting and drinks were also very good. It’s quite expensive but as each dish is for sharing you get a lot for your money and quality is very good. It was full even on a Wednesday and noise/music was fairly loud but wasn’t a problem for us. We’ll be back!

I met a friend there for lunch on Monday which meant I only had to book a few days in advance, as opposed to the usual 3 - 4 weeks for a weekend. Gold is worth planning for. We loved it. Superb service, amazing food, and the decor and ambiance are gorgeous.
It's been reviewed as pricey but whereas it's not cheap, I think it's good value. The servings on each plate are generous and so you don't leave hungry. The wine list is really well balanced and doesn't have to throw your bill into orbit.
I will definitely be going back

Well this place was a surprise. Heard a good thing or two about it so thought would give it a go for a biz lunch. It was totally awesome! Staff engaged and upbeat, design arboreal, food fun and different. There seemed great energy in the place and myself and colleagues came out buzzing and feeling pretty good indeed. A nice antidote to February greyness!!! Chicken is great and the cured sardines and the burrata etc ... all good, really. Thank you ! Didn’t blow a whole in the wallet either ... not cheap but not dangerous either.

Excellent food as always. Particularly exceptional service on this occasion. Very bespoke suggestions around food and wine. Very accommodating to move us to larger table so friends could join us impromptu for dessert and coffee. Thx

We had Saturday lunch, for a birthday treat, at Gold in the conservatory area at the back. The Service was lovely, both efficient and very friendly, was wished happy birthday several times! varied menu and good to be warned not to over order - as we were very full at the end. Nice looking upstairs room as well.

The staff were enormously pretentious. And we waited 30 minutes for a table that was booked at least two weeks in advance. We were made to feel badly for not wanting to be seated at the bar - super dark - for lunch. Our main dishes arrived at different times and for a moment I thought I was at Wagamamas. I was even reprimanded by a member of the kitchen staff for using the men’s loo by mistake. I would never go back.

Overall it was a good experience. It didn’t start well as the team at the reception seemed a bit overwhelmed and Had a slightly passive aggressive ton of voice which didn’t make us feel very welcomed.
We had to wait for our table at the bar which was fine as it gave us time to enjoy some cocktails While waiting.

Amazing!!! Service great, atmosphere also, there’s a real Ibiza vibe in terms of the decor. The food was incredible - my new favourite restaurant. We were upstairs and it’s meant to be a bit quieter but it was still quite noisy
