Kitchen at Holmes
I have to admit that the experience was not what I had expected being in the location that it is. Normally at the time we had arrived I would have expected a busier and vibrant atmosphere, but for most of the sitting our table was the only one used. In my opinion the quality of the food in comparison to the price was not great, but that might be considered being biased as I am not from the "high society" community however, I do appreciate that the prices are comparable to the locality, but still with this in mind I didn't consider this experience value for money. I had requested a birthday cake for my mother as a surprise to match the occasion and the staff did deliver however, the quality of the cake was very bad which resulted in two of the four guests at the table not eating their slices at all ( after the first bite) we then concluded that it may have become stodgy due to it just coming out of the fridge but some hours after we had brought it home we realised it was still of the same texture. Again, in my view £25 is not to be shunned at and was somewhat angered by what was served. I guess the first question will be why did I not complain and the answer is that I am not of the complaining type hence the reason for "letting it go" but looking back at the while experience I do think it was very disappointing especially when the total bill came to £310. In conclusion, I will not be recommending this establishment to anyone that would be thinking of dinning there. In my view the team needs to go back to the drawing board by providing a more extensive and value for money menu, this is my view would encourage more dinners to enjoy their evenings there.
Very nice spot, food and deco great, Staff wonderful just need a few more customers to make it more buzzy
Dear Nicole, Thank you so much for reviewing your experience at Kitchen at Holmes. We recently opened and are getting busier and busier which creates a fantastic atmosphere. We hope to welcome you back very soon.
Excellent food and service. A hidden Gem. Good place for quiet business lunch where you have lots to discuss.

The cocktails were amazing and the service was extremely prompt. Highly recommend !
Dear Brandie, Thank you so much for your review! We are so proud of our cocktail list and delighted to hear you enjoyed them. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Kitchen at Holmes very soon.
Just OK, very empty for a Sunday evening, so flat atmosphere. No Sherlock Holmes memorabilia, unlike the hotel it is in. Overall, blah.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our newly opened bar and restaurant. We are glad to see that you enjoyed the food offering and had a delicious meal. I would like to apologise if we didn't meet your expectations regarding the atmosphere within the restaurant on Sunday night. We would love if you would give us another chance and would like to invite you to try out our special Sherlock's Pipe cocktail on a more lively Thursday or Friday night perhaps.
So delighted to have this new beauty on our doorstep.
Dear Elaine, Thank you for sharing you kind review! We look forward to welcome you back very soon.
Excellent food and perfect service! A great new restaurant to have on Baker Street - a step up from most places nearby. Highly recommended.
Good afternoon and thank you for sharing such excellent review! I am delighted to hear you had a pleasant time when visiting Kitchen at Holmes and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you again soon. Kindest regards, Caroline Reception Manager
Great place, nice vibe.
We met there for lunch before a business meeting. The Bar Lunch menu is VERY limited. Don't expect hotel bar food. We wanted a salad or a sandwich - no such luck. We told that they serve sandwiches on the evening menu, not lunch (confusingly).
Maybe our expectations were out of line with the place....or maybe they didn't have a great menu. Who knows. The place was empty, though....
Thank you for taking the time in reviewing our newly opened Restaurant & Bar. I am glad to hear you have enjoyed the venue and the atmosphere but I would also like to apologise if we didn't meet your expectations on the Lunch menu options. Since the very first opening both Restaurant and Bar menus has been completely revised and carefully adapted to please every sort of palate. We would love you to give us another chance and we are looking forward to welcoming you again soon! Best, Caroline
Great service, a diverse and inventive menu, lovely setting, and delicious cocktails!
Dear Carla, Thank you so much for taking the time to review our newly opened bar and restaurant. We are delighted to hear you had a wonderful experience and look forward to hopefully welcome you back very soon.
Overall a good experience with very friendly staff. Clearly some teething issues as it had only been open for a couple of days but we would return. The menu does not really flow - no need for a stir fry section at all.
Will return in the future.
Thank you so much for your feedback and we are delighted to hear you enjoyed your experience at Kitchen at Holmes! We appreciate all the feedback we can get and are finetuning our menu and service to perfection. We look forward to hopefully welcome you back soon!
