    The food and service were great. My steak was a bit tough and they have changed it without any issues. We will definitely be back.

    Warmly greeted as one enters the door and the kind attentive service continues from there. The steak was cooked to perfection, the fish hot and moist, the grilled salad was exactly what we hoped it would be and the wines suggested were perfect. Will definitely go back.

    Shocking… everything about this venue was abysmal - rude inattentive staff & forget the appalling tiramisu! Tiny wine portions, just completely lacking everything it shouldnt….. dont waste your money, eat elsewhere. They do not give a fig about their customers. FACT

    Nothing special about the food; the steaks were mediocre at best; the steak arrived blue rare despite ordering a medium also make note this establishment does not have any sauces for it's steaks. The wine selection is reasonable and fairly priced. Service was incompetent at times. Overall decoration of the place was very good. Overall as I prioritise the culinary aspect of a restaurant when choosing where to eat, I will not be revisiting this establishment anytime soon.

    Did not enjoy the food , too pricey, restaurant was too Smokey, fire alarm went off, steak grill had water leak from the hood fan, lots of commotion, asked for medium well steak and it came out medium rare, sent it back but steak was still not cooked well. Will not return , absolutely disappointed (this restaurant was recommended) but we were very disappointed. Service was very very very slow. Many other restaurants to choose from. Don’t waste your money!

    This is a nice steakhouse in Soho and has a great buzzy atmosphere - in-line with most other steakhouses it can be a bit pricey, but the quality of the meat is very good so worth it for a special occasion.

    Good food albeit quite expensive for what it is. I had taken a client there expecting something amazing, but the vibe/ambience really wasn't very good. There was elevator music playing and the lighting felt quite harsh.

    We were really looking forward to this valentines pre theatre dinner. The ambience and theatre of butcher chopping meat as you walk in . Unfortunately that’s where the good experience ends. Else had the bruschetta to start, which was served on old bread. Whilst the tomatoes did have flavour Thame presentation was poor and very overpriced for what you got. Most disappointing was the beef cheek and mash. Not only was it served with water round the plate but the meat was totally tasteless. It looked like they had opened a can off meat and heated it up and served it on a plate. It was edible and tender but totally lacking in flavour. The mash was also flavourless and poorly presented. I don’t like giving poor reviews but this wasn’t cheap and was just pretty awful. Certainly can’t recommend anything about this restaurant.

    The table, service and food were all fantastic. We were in a rush so just ordered mains. I had the hanger steak and it was amazing. The flavour was incredible. My partner had the rump steak and a side of potatoes. The steak was melt in the mouth and a decent sized side. Would definitely recommend.

    Service was slow. All portions were small and the quality of the food was average at best. The cherry on the cake was the bill - completely overpriced for what it was. We either caught this place on a bad day, or they are over-relying in their prime location and do not bother much about quality.

    THE MOST OVERPRICED RESTAURANT. We went for a meal here for NYE 2021. The restaurant design and atmosphere was lovely and the staff on the whole were friendly and very good (although I questioned why, despite being a steak restaurant, the waiter didn’t ask my partner how he would like his steak cooked. However, I have never seen a more overpriced restaurant in my life. The food is nice, but is nowhere near worth what you are charged. If you want a stake, the minimum is £54, which is ridiculous as you can get it for around £30 elsewhere and just as good. I had a pasta, for £25, and I am not joking when I say it had about 5 tubes to make up the full dish. Will not be coming back here again. Such a shame as so much potential.

    What a shame. The service was very poor.They forgot to show us the meat before to cook it. The chef was keep calling waitresses when the food was ready on the pass….but no one cares🤷🏼‍♂️ At some point the owner/manager dressed with a dirty jumper decided to walk in the kitchen and start to cook some spaghetti, that’s unacceptable that someone without chef uniform cAn walk in the kitchen and start to cook.what about hygiene?health & safety???? Shame because the food is good.

    Good friendly service in an excellently positioned restaurant. The interior is well laid out with a central firepit/bbq & display of aged beef cuts on the ground floor that is spectacular. Good value pre & post theatre menu plus an excellent a la carte. We had a selection of 3 course meals from both. All starters & mains were very good but in every case the desert was a big disappointment, tiramisu beig the worst. The wine list is Italian, extensive, very good but rather expensive. However there are a couple of decent bottles at less than £30. Overall, very good but next time I'll go for 2 course meals!

    Overrated - I’m very fortunate to eat out in London most nights so have a very good idea of what restaurants are worth the money you pay. This is simply bog standard and you have probably cooked better meals at home - Flavourless meals across all three courses nobody on our table was happy at all. Positives are very good service and great wine selection.

    We came for dinner after a theatre show. We were very impressed with the restaurant at first glance and felt really excited to try their food. The menu is quite varied although a little tricky to understand due to language and special terms. However the waiter was really helpful and gave us some great ideas. We ended up sharing a steak with sides and it was extremely tasty. No flaws at all. The price is on the premium end but rightly so as it’s a high quality restaurant. Really pleased we tried this restaurant and would recommend.

    Food was good, although , the steak we ordered was inconsistent - somewhere it was well done, somewhere medium well, although, we ordered it medium, I expected better for steak which cost £100. The waiter brought us another dish which was cooked beautifully. But it wasn’t T-bone steak which we initially wanted. Another criticism is that we weren’t offered to taste wine. We ordered 2 glasses of wine which were quite expensive, and it was brought in the glasses. We didn’t see the bottle, we didn’t have a chance to try if it’s good, and if we like it. It’s dissapointing. The bones for starter were wow! Service was great.

    Highly overpriced - the meat is not as good as they make out and certainly not aged for the length of time they state. Yes, there are show meats but what we had was tough with a lot of gristle. Waiting staff were pleasant though stressed as overworked - as a consequence service was all over the place. Restaurant was very loud and hot, which the low ceiling didn't help - not a pleasant atmosphere. Overall a poor experience. It's not about the money - I am happy to pay for good quality; and =know good quality. I will stay with Hawksmoor and Goodman's - much better.

    Chose this restaurant because of its situation between two theatres. The food - we had lamb chops - was superb (just one course for us before the performance). Loved the restaurant set up and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will certainly return
