Our recent visit was very disappointing. We were kept waiting for at least 10 minutes as there was no one at the entrance desk. The service was very slow and unenthusiastic. We were given the drinks menu and then had to wait at least half an hour for someone to come and take our drinks order. The waiter asked if we would like more bread, we said we would but then never received any! Every request seemed like too much bother for the staff. The restaurant was not even busy!
We had relatives visiting from USA and quite frankly we were very disappointed and embarrassed.

We have been a couple times over the last 6 months and repeatedly we have had a lovely experience. The food is delicious and innovative without being radical for the sake of being radical. The chef discovers what makes sense beyond what is simply obvious. The service also really stands out. Friendly without being too familiar and incredibly gracious. Genuine service with a smile and a touch of sense of humour which makes it a joy to interact with the team. Since the location is not on a beaten path (unless a stroll along the canal between Primrose Hill and Camden is your norm)...it does need to be well known to succeed in the long term and I would gladly share my recommendation to anyone as I would like it to stay. Thank you for a wonderful evening out once again.

Great food. Great service which is rare in London and will continue to go back. When the server hand stuffs Olives with blue cheese for your martini you’ve found a great spot!

Had a fab time. We usually just pop in for a drink but had a date night. The service was great and the food was absolutely delicious.

We had the tasting menu for my daughter’s birthday celebration. The menu was amazing, the food was beautifully prepared and presented and the staff and service were amazing. We even got to meet Michael at the end of the meal! We will definitely be returning - as my daughter said if this is what birthdays are like she would like one every day!

The service was average, the food was OK

The manager was appallingly rude; one of the worst I’ve experienced. Absolutely shocking for any restaurant, never mind one priced toward the upper end at of the market.

I can see why the restaurant was barely half full. Avoid.

Went for a dinner (around 2000) on a Thursday night (June 27th) with my girlfriend. Only had starters and mains but the whole ordeal took us more than 2 hours. We had to wait very very long for everything (getting menus, someone to take our orders, for wine & food to arrive etc.). Even when we were paying (the restaurant was more or less empty by then) it took staff solid 10-15 minutes to show up with a card terminal. To me it's an indication of either gross incompetence or structural under-staffing (kitchen, waiters, bar etc.)

On a positive note, the food was really good but I cannot rate a place any more highly if it doesn't get simple service tablestakes right. A number of tables around us had the same issues (e.g. wine only arriving when people were already done w. their mains!). Not sure I'm coming back anytime soon

P.s. what also strikes me as surprising is the amount of effort the place puts into one-day-only menus (e.g. Cinco de Mayo, July 4th etc.). They always seems to be working on something special. However, I wonder if a higher priority should be getting the basics right first...

Average quality food and bad service. The waiter was annoyed from the very beginning and remainined slow and unpleasant for the reminder of the evening.

Another lovely lunch, as usual, a great experience, food light but packed full of flavour, service friendly and efficient. Go treat yourself for lunch on a weekday for a surprisingly affordable quality experience.

In a party of four eating three courses every dish was a success. Exemplary service. Pricey but not inappropriate for the performance delivered. Ordinary location but not claustrophobic.

Ordered tasting menu with wines, first time we got warm food and had to wait 5 minutes for wines. With deserts, wines were forgotten completely. One wrong dish also served. Food was ok, but as a tasting menu not really worth it - you are better off buying just one main course but 580 euro 6 course tasting dinner with matching wines for four persons, neither the service, nor the quality of the food lives at least up to our expectations.

5 people at £100 per head for the tasting menu. Absolutely disgusting, chewy scallops !! Not worth the money and will not return after many years of annually taking our client there.

Perfect place for a date, really warm and friendly service, it was a really beautiful building which was classy without being pretentious.
The gentleman that served us drinks was a proper host, felt very welcome. Great experience, little pricy for what you got though.

Unlike many of London's ubiquitous modern European restaurants, Michael Nadra's menu is refreshingly distinctive in both variety and taste.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food + service was very warm and welcoming.
Highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys great food in a nice setting - you'll feel you've had an evening out without any pretence or stuffiness :)
