Kew Grill restaurant is a splendid eatery on the Kew Green in London's Richmond that's right opposite Kew Gardens. This charming spot oozes relaxed glamour and confidence. Kew Grill belongs to celebrity chef Antony Worrall-Thompson, who has created an irresistible British menu that uses the best and freshest ingredients. With a rustic earth-toned dining room kitted out with exposed brick wall, blond wooden floor and comfortable leather chairs, the Kew Grill is a place chic carnivores come to relax and enjoy simple, unpretentious food. Star dishes include the crisp-spiced soft shelled crab on a Thai red curry sauce; the fillet steak with skinny chips and Roquefort butter; and the famous AWT burger made with 35-day hung Scottish beef. Kew Grill is perfect for business lunches, cocktails and unfussy dates as it's built an enviable reputation for excellent food that's beautifully presented. It's no surprise that 'Real food for real people' is the motto here.

Anniversary. Had a great evening! The restaurant was buzzing. Only downside was no choice of tonics to go with gin and was added before it came to the table 😕

We all ate the best steak at the weekend the meat was cooked to perfection and the sides of creamed spinach were amazing I could eat a bowl of that on its own! My 4 year old enjoyed her meal too which is rare as she is quite fussy, she had sausage and mash with peas and ate the lot. We will definitely go back in fact I think this is my new favourite place to eat. We usually to The Ivy in Richmond not this is much better and the staff are so attentive. I love it!

I hadn't been to the Kew Grill in a number of years in which time I think its changed hands. I'm pleased to say that it still is an excellent choice with great food & service. Its not a large restaurant so its a pretty lively but not to the extent it interferes with anything. Great wine list. Excellent steaks.

On arrival, greeted warmly by all staff. Service throughout our meal was attentive, helpful, friendly and caring. Menu choice is extensive and our starters were excellent. Goats cheese and beetroot salad was delicious and the chicken wings were superb. Steaks cooked perfectly to order served with fresh salads and perfectly cooked chips. Fabulous evening and will be returning again soon. One of our favourite local restaurants.

We live in Fulham and usually go more central when we dine out. A friend recommended this place and I’m very pleased they did. Nice place, great steak and good service... and half the price of Chelsea.

Such a little gem tucked in the corner of Kew Green!
The staff could not have been more accommodating - every effort was made to ensure we had the best time and nothing was too much trouble.
There was a lovely laid back ambience to the place.
Lovely varied menu and I was not disappointed!
The Scallops cooked 3 ways in particular was gorgeous - as was the duck breast!
Look forward to returning soon!

Good food, fun atmosphere. Just a bit disappointed that a request for a bottle of house red was taken as an opportunity to push an expensive red wine. I had to pluck up the courage to say I really wanted something from the cheaper end of the wine list. A bit awkward and seemed to be relying on me being too polite to refuse what was offered.

Although lovely, it is extremely overpriced for what it is. The service and wine of course can not be faulted but I personally can't stand having to pay for every side as an extra. At least include one with your choice of steak.

Glad I went, but would not return.

We went on valentine's day, so there was a special menu for the day which I guess was different to their normal a la carte options. Anyway, the food was fantastic - really good steak and excellent starters as well.

It has a nice ambience and quite a low level of noise, despite the full tables. We were the last to be seated for the evening and one of the last to leave as well. At no point were we hurried or did the staff stop paying attention. A very good service and excellent food.

Lovely restaurant, good staff, and our steaks were not medium rare. Feel disappointed as this place was highly recommended to me. Will probably go again but will not have steak. I have become exceedingly hawkish with my opinion of steak restaurants.

Yet again Kew Grill maintain their high standards - I have never ever had a bad night here and hope I never do.

The steaks are simply amazing and everything else that goes along wonderful.

Never going to be a bargain but you get what you pay for sometimes in life

Very expensive for an average meal. We used to enjoy the Kew Grill a great deal and it was our go-to restaurant for great steak. However having not been for a few years, we were very disappointed this time. Whilst the steaks are still nice, the rest of the food was very average/poor. Standards, service and decor have all slipped. There are too many other good steak restaurants around to warrant a visit back.

This was a nice, quaint bistro style place with generally nice food but nothing I would rate as particularly special.
My main complaint would be that the place is very cold (I assume esp in winter) which does ruin a cozy meal.
I would also say that the fries were over-cooked and feel like they were re-heated/fried - I complaint I read from a previous review.
Overall, nice food, quite expensive, but not somewhere I would rush to go back to.

Visited Kew Grill for an early sitting (5.30pm) last Saturday before attending Christmas at Kew. The restaurant was quiet but soon filled up. Food was very good - started with scallops and then ordered the fillet steak. Steak was cooked to my liking and was very good- comparable to other big name steak restaurants. Overall, I hope to visit again.
