Nice place, not easy to find if you dont know Stratford.
Friendly staff, average food, was quite.
Was giving a complimentary cake for our anniversary which was a nice gesture, but it was rock hard ! so really didnt touch it
Place was a bit cold as it was near a door to where the transport station.
Not sure if I would return.

Went for a Thursday afternoon birthday lunch with a friend.
Had the vegan options which were super delicious! Was really pleased with how tasty they were. Slightly pricey I would say, esp for the meat options on a lunch menu.
Staff were lovely and polite and attentive.
Very nice experience all in all so, thank you!

In the end we had a wonderful meal, the food was really delicious and the staff lovely, but initially we were disappointed to be told that we were unable to order pizza for my son, despite it being served in other areas of the hotel.
We would have appreciated a little more flexibility, but despite this, I would thoroughly recommend it and am looking forward to going back again.

Had prebooked a table for 2 and arrived on time. We let a waitress know we had a booking and she took us round par empty tables to the very back table by the kitchen! It was dark and secluded. Not impressed. There were untidy tables around us and we asked to be moved. We watched as she quickly cleaned a table for us nearer everyone else. When asked I was told that they were fully booked..yeah I had booked too! Anyway the food itself was lovely and well worth it. Asked if wanted anything else twice which we said no to and next thing you know we had our bill dropped on our table with the guy standing there with the card machine!
Not impressed! Literally just had our plates taken. My partner doesn't want to return.

The restaurant is lovely and we sat on the terrace, which is beautifully decorated. However the service we received was appalling. We had to ask three times to be sat down and once sat down we were asked to order before we had even been given menus. Wait staff were abrupt and seemed to have no idea what they were doing - perhaps it was quite a few people’s first day! Food was lovely and well presented, such a shame about the staff.

Very disappointing drink and meal at The Stratford. I had specifically booked on a Thursday to enjoy the DJs that would be playing and even called up on the day to double check and was told there would definitely be DJs. When we arrived it was very quiet, no DJs, just background music. We sat down on the sofas for a drink from 6 - 7pm which were perfectly pleasant but certainly not worth the £12 price tag. We then moved to Kitchen E20 for dinner which was a wholly disappointing experience. The food was extremely average and massively over priced. I ordered the lamb, which was overcooked, and my boyfriend ordered the wagyu beef burger, which was also overcooked but they also didn't even ask how he'd like it. The Mac 'n' Cheese had a weird flavour I couldn't put my finger on and the chicken starter just tasted like a smokey fire. To top it all off the music in the restaurant was bizarre and didn't create an enjoyable ambience. All in all it was very disappointing but expensive experience and I wouldn't recommend going.

An early dinner in The Kitchen. Tired-looking food, plated indifferently and dull to the taste. In particular, dessert at £7.50 (red velvet cheesecake brownie) looked all of 75p and was served on a side plate. Looked awful - tasted only average (the standard good-quality/mid-priced restaurant in central London will do this so much better as a matter of course!). Staff were pleasant, but robotic and interaction was decidedly inauthentic. At nearly £80 (and that includes just one glass of wine) an exorbitant price for a very mediocre experience. No excuses really for such shoddiness. Very poor.

The menu is a lovely selection and overall quality of the food was high but there were a couple of less good elements. The casesar salad had a very overwhelming garlic taste, possibly the garlic in the dressing hadn't been cooked first - we were still tasting it days later! And there was a mistake with our creme brulee, they had covered it in salt instead of sugar so it was revolting!
When we pointed out the mistake, the staff were apologetic and brought a new one. But it didn't give us the greatest confidence in the chef! Also they didn't remove the creme brulee from our bill until we pointed it out, which I thought was poor service. Considering the restaurant is not cheap, I would expect better.

Our first visit. I was a little disappointed with the grilled aubergine but my friends who had a couple of different fish choices said the chef was outstanding. Their food certainly looked and smelled appetising. Portions were small and next time would definitely order sides. One of our group wanted a herbal tea that they didn't have and was really pleased that they made her one with fresh ginger and mint.

Outside seating was comfortable and well spaced and at lunch time was quiet and relaxing apart from the music on the speakers which was just a bit too loud for easy conversation but we moved tables and much better. The indoor area was also spacious and very attractive and the Ladies was spotless, large and provided individual towels. Once we realised that the sensors for the tap required you to hold your hands lower in the basin than just under the tap, all was great.

Staff were helpful when we were ordering . Daniela was friendly and helpful when American payment card didn't work with 1st machine and she went and got another one, but as we were outside we felt that staff could have checked on what we needed more frequently.

Overall, food was of a really good quality, place stylish, airy, spacious and comfortable and we would definitely meet up there again.

The menu on the website is different to that in the restaurant which was slightly misleading, also pricing is different for certain courses. There was also no mention that the “Evening Set Menu” is only until 7pm on the website so again felt slightly misled. Not much choice for those with dietary requirements.
