Simply superb from start to finish. The staff were very accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. They quickly understood what was important to us and delivered in spades. It is a higher end restaurant from a cost perspective but absolutely worth it.

Delightful staff, great venue and ambience but the food is very disappointing.
Top end prices but quality of the food is not top end.
I ordered a grilled Dover sole at circa £32. It was small, dry and unimpressive.
I suppose I’m comparing it to the quality of the same dish I would be served at the likes of Sheekey’s for a comparable price- perhaps my expectations were too high but, then again, they shouldn’t be.

You can always rely on Ham Yard for a wonderful experience. The staff are always friendly and professional from the minute you walk in to the venue. The bar staff know their drinks and will advise you on cocktail choices. The restaurant staff all know the menu and will discuss dishes. Everyone wants you to have s good experience. No matter how busy it is the staff make you feel as if you are the most important people in the room. When they ask if everything is ok you feel as if they are genuine in their concern for you. Most importantly they all look really happy as if they are enjoying their work and service.

Pre-theatre dinner - couple with young son. Very helpful service throughout. Busy but comfortable with some live background music. Food was good if a little odd in places. Overall, a nice, welcoming experience so I expect we will return.

The evening was lovely. They were happy to accommodate us changing tables and more than prepared to slightly change dishes to suit dietry requirements. We were not rushed, the food was delicious and service very good. Would return without hesitation and happy to recommend.

Good food options for all courses which were fresh, tasty and different from the usual fare. Menu choices are refreshed with the seasons so always something different to try. Service was just the right level of friendly and attentive without being too much. Priced well for what you get although usually they have a set menu for those more value conscious but this appears unavailable for the Christmas period.

This was my second visit to Ham Yard, the first was for Afternoon tea which was fantastic. However was not sure what it would be like in the evening for drinks and dinner for my birthday . I needn’t have worried it was amazing , everything from the friendly staff who couldn’t do enough for us to the atmosphere to the food all fabulous. The most memorable bit was the staff , when we arrived and looked for space at bar to seat the staff quickly tried to find us some stools which was lovely touch . Thank you to all at Ham Yard

Food and service is great. Wine is good but a little on the pricey side when considering the fact that the wine glasses provided at table are not the real thing. This is simply not acceptable to anyone who wishes to enjoy a good bottle of wine with a great meal.
It is not easy to get to the bar for a pre-meal drink and almost impossible to get a seat in the bar area.

Second visit in a week as one of the few places doing a great deal on a Friday night. Great catch up with good friend. Again the terrine was divine, the beef was delish - she had the cod and almost licked the plate. Seriously good deal £20 inc a glass of fizz. I think we might be back LOL

Great meal at the go to stylish hotspot in Soho. This restaurant serves proper food in a chic and stylish setting. Servers are friendly and efficient and delivered everything promptly and with a smile.

Food all good, but not exceptional in creativity - just high quality and reliable.

Its a little loud in the restaurant when the bar is totally full, but otherwise very good.

The lounge area also looked very nice for a drink and a snack, so may try that one soon.

Small choice but lovely fixed price menu inc a glass of fizz; pork terrine is deivine; the rump was very rare and warm (we sent the first one back as literally only just not cold); coconut rice pudding was moreish. Picked a nice red at a reasonable price too! Kudos to the manager who comped the dessert due to the main course issue. Staff are VERY smiley - glad we left when we did, my friend was finding a bit too much! However, I liked the fact that they knew I'd been before :-)

Have been to Ham Yard several times for afternoon tea so thought we would try an early dinner prior to seeing a show in the West End. Service was a bit slow, the waiters seemed to be rushed off their feet with the end of the Tea Service. We ordered out main course only, my partners was fine - Schnitzel with egg. & a side of courgette fries. Mine was cold and very odd combination of pulled slow cooked lamb over pasta?!?1?! The pasta was cold and tasteless, the sauce was very wet and didnt stick/cover the pasta. I had to send it back. They brought me a replacement very quickly but although it was hot, the dish was just wrong. The lamb was smothered in peppercorns, the dish didnt work and I was really disappointed. We ordered cocktails but both were full of ice and this made them watered down.
I would go back to Ham Yard as I love the ambience of the restaurant but ONLY for AFTERNOON TEA

Table not ready at booked time so we had to wait at the bar, which was rammed and we couldn’t get served. Given a table in a couples’ corner even though we were clearly two friends, which was cringy. Main course took forever to arrive and waitress forgot our wine order... Pretty disappointing!

Our dinner to celebrate our daughter’s birthday was a huge disappointment. There were five of us so one of us had to sit out on a limb at the end of a rectangular table. A round table would have been better.
The noise from the neighbouring bar was deafening.
The service was diabolically slow both for the pre-dinner drinks and the food.
The food was lukewarm bordering on cold.
The portions were small.
The bill was high.

There was some confusion with our booking and we were initially not offered the set menu, but this was soon remedied. The beetroot and hazelnut starter was delicious, an interesting vegetarian option is always a delight. Very good service as always.
