This was expensive but good. The mains came with no vegetables at all, so everyone had to have sides, but the food was well presented and had good flavour. Thanks to coronavirus there was virtually no one else there, but it didn't matter. We were beautifully looked after and the meat was cooked to perfection. Wines were in keeping with the area (Old Park Lane) but the choice was reasonable. Would recommend.

Visited whilst staying close by for a special birthday meal. Wasn't disappointed. The food was great and nicely presented. Staff were very welcoming and attentive. Only drawbacks were the expensive wine price and the time waiting for the main course.

The main reason why i did not give a better review was that i discovered Gridiron via an add that appeared on instagram and i clicked on the link and checked out the menus and i noticed that you have a set menu available until 7:30 mon-sat, we attended on a friday at 5:30 but was told that the set menu was not available which was very disappointing as this is what first attracted me in the first place. I have looked at your website since that visit and noticed that it still has the set menu. Can you tell me if this set menu is still available and why i was not offered it on my visit. Thanks.. Scott Richardson

Dear Mr Richardson, Thank you for your feedback regarding your experience at Gridiron. Indeed we do normally offer a 3 course set menu for 29 pounds. However, this menu is not available on certain special days of the year that includes Valentine's Day, which is why you were unable to book it. We do apologise for any inconvenience caused, however, I am pleased to tell you it is available to be booked through the website and we hope to welcome you to Gridiron again. Warm regards, Gridiron Team

Loved our evening at Gridiron! It was a relaxed atmosphere yet very attentive and professional staff. We went there with 2 smaller children and it was very friendly and we were looked after perfectly.
The food was absolutely fantastic from starters to dessert!

I was not eating particularly late, especially for a weekend & I was the only guest. It would have been better if they had not seated me. The team obviously wanted to go home, the whole experience was very rushed & uncomfortable.

Place was almost empty on the Tuesday night I went. The waiter was very nice and basically saved the dinner. But the food was just so so and a bit pricy. I wouldn’t recommend.

The service was very attentive without being overbearing. We all loved our food-the lobster with pasta was a great starter and I loved the tomato salad. Steaks and fish were perfect. It is definitely worth a try!

The food was delicious, the service lovely, but the price to quality ratio was not adequate. there are better value places in London with equal quality. so if you are in the area and need a place to eat, fine, but i wouldn't go out of my way to go there again.

We booked the Gridiron based upon previous reviews and we weren’t disappointed. We had the scallops and the pigs head and black pudding croquets to start. I had the sirloin steak and my friend had the venison, served with the beef dripping potatoes, golden carrots and the garlic squash. The food was incredible. I would highly recommend this place.

After seeing some of the early reviews on here I was skeptical, however I’m not sure if these reviewers went to a different restaurant because the Gridiron I experienced was faultless.

Impeccable service, unbelievable food, excellent value for money.

Top recommendations would be Short Rib Kiev, Black Pudding and Pigs Head Croquettes, Crab on Toast, Braised Beef Shin and Smoked Eel and then the Venison (so perfect it absolutely does not need a sauce) accompanied with the Beef Dripping Potatoes which will be the best potatoes you have ever had in your life

I can’t wait to come again!

Great food and service but very expensive for what you get. We found £38 for a very small piece of turbot (ex sides) to be particularly disappointing even for restaurants in this price range

We had a great dinner at Gridiron last night. It is a wonderful steakhouse with a great bar. We had fun at the bar (Alex, excellent bartender!) trying different concoctions. Then the meal was excellent: The steaks, and fish, the starters and the desserts were all excellent, for an all-around wonderful evening!

Just not good enough for the money. Great menu that disappointed. First course scallop, shell served, quickly ended up in pool of its own water, washing off what caramelisation was there to start with. Crab toast though was competent and delicious. Dover Sole at £40 was half size and visually overcooked, it’s mush evident from a distance. We overheard the table behind us deflate in disappointment at theirs. We cancelled ours in favour of Dexter rib for two which at nearly £90 could have been spectacular but badly let down by everything around it; the clarified fat with fish chunks masquerading as anchovy butter, the creamed spinach with too much nutmeg in watery milk and the burnt then over stewed fondant onion. Weird ‘complimentary’ quartered spicy corn on the cob later interrupted the main course and was utterly tasteless as well as being a pointless gesture. Where was the amuse bouche or even bread to start? Service however was charming and accommodating. But at +£250 for two it’s got to be brilliant even in deepest Mayfair. No wonder it was only half full on a Saturday night. Go to Scott’s. Same postcode, same money, different planet.

Highly original menu and excellent food. However there is a lot of upselling which is great for P/L, not so great for encouraging returning custom. We left feeling it was very expensive (£91 each with only two drinks each). Also the constant, and I mean Constant ‘how is it’ - even before the food has been tried, was beyond irritating. So overall mixed feelings.
