The food was fine for the price - nice, but what you'd expect for the price. We were one of 3 tables in throughout the night and repeatedly had to call the staff over to clear plates / make orders. Disappointing.

Went for my birthday and asked for a good table (unfortunately it was Valentine's day). Table was fine but had a huge light over the table with a very bright bulb in it so it felt a bit like being in a canteen.
Then was told by the waiter how I could have my steak - I ordered rib eye and I know as I eat this often that they recommend medium rare, which is fine, however, i always ask that it's slightly more rare than medium rare as I often find it a bit over cooked. Anyway, i was told this was not possible, that they only cook it medium rare and no variations. Interesting way to talk to your customers.
Steak arrived, it was fine but nothing special. I'm not sure I understand all the great reviews on the food. Spinach was good, chips were very poor.
My Mum had called up ahead and asked them for a cake for my birthday as a surprise. Waited and waited, she had to remind them twice. Didn't end up being much of a surprise! To be fair to them, they didn't charge us for the slice of cheesecake.
All in all fine, but for the price (£50 a head with one of the cheaper wines) I would pay a bit extra and go to Hawksmoor or Omnino round the corner!

Yep. Been here before the rebrand. It’s as good if not slightly better. Steak great as ever. Love the salt. Portions aren’t huge and it’s on the expensive end of what it is. But it’s in the city so can’t really complain on that front. Def recommend

Some of the best steaks in London - without the formality of some steak restaurants. Suits business and personal meals out. Friendly service - we did have to wait 20 mins for our deserts but they were very apologetic. Wine list very good and matches the food well. Expensive but worth it.

I have visited Mingo half a dozen times since it re-opened as Mingo & have always enjoyed a very nice / value for money meal (Steak & Chips). However, on this occasion my friends and I were left extremely disappointed.
Not only had the prices increased for Xmas but the steak was of a smaller cut and wasn't of it's usual quality. The steak had a lot of gristle (usually none) and despite my request for a medium to well done steak it was very pink on the inside. I'm not one to complain in a restaurant especially as I can only take an hour for lunch so cannot deal with the hassle. Sadly after this experience, I won't be coming back again :-(

The food was very good. There were 3 of us in the group and we had different steaks. All very well cooked and tasty. I've marked the restaurant down on service as the service was very slow and our orders got mixed up at first. This may be due to the Christmas season, so I'll try again in the new year.

I’ve never written a review but this place deserves one. Went to Mingo on Friday 8th December to celebrate a friend’s engagement and had booked a table for 4 via opentable and chose the 2 for 1 cocktails offer as opposed to 1000 points.

As soon as we sat down we wanted to order cocktails and this is when the evening went downhill. We were told by the waiter the offer wasn’t available in December or after 7pm (our seating was at 7pm) We tried to explain that this wasn’t explained anywhere so the manager came to get involved. He explained that the Ts and Cs were on their website. Again we explained we booked via opentable so didn’t have to look on their website and nowhere on opentable were we advised to look up the Ts and Cs. We then all ordered steaks well done “borderline burnt”, these came back red, one of which wasn’t eaten. We tried to get attention for several things me water and after being fobbed off had to get up and go to the kitchen to ask. Ordered drinks which never came and on the whole it wasn’t a celebratory evening.

Although the manager did give us our 2 for 1 drinks offer after a tiresome conversation, this was the worst place we’ve eaten! I’m sure others have enjoyed eating here but we certainly won’t be returning as the basics were ignored.

We dined on 7th December to celebrate one of my girlfriends’ birthday. We booked the £24 Malbec offer but when we were about to order, we were told that the offer isn’t available during December. We questioned this as we didn’t receive a call or email from them letting us know that the offer isn’t available. They were defensive & didn’t even apologise about this. Service was extremely slow, god our orders mixed up, steak was over cooked, chicken was dry, veg were burnt. Seriously awful experience. We felt that there wasn’t enough staff to accommodate the number of diners during this busy festive period this the horrendous service. We will not go back.

Unfortunately a disappointing experience this time. I've met friends for a work-day lunch a few times before and everything has been fine so I confidently booked a table to meet my parents and sister who were visiting from out of town.
Two problems:
- I arrived a little later than the others, but they said it took an age and something of a campaign to attract someones attention to order some drinks. They very much felt ignored as staff passed by but didn't invite contact and they had to really collar someone to get served.
- Part of the attraction of this place are the great value offers which are advertised on the website. Particularly the steak and chips for £11.95 and daily lunch menus at the same price. Neither of these were made available on the day. When we enquired, we were told that those offers had been dropped in preference to a Christmas menu at something £23 . It was only 1st Dec and nobody had updated the website. It still shows those cheaper offers on the website today and makes no mention of the Christmas deal. The staff made no attempt at offering something similar despite our bringing it to their attention.

I can't invite people to eat with me there again if offers advertised as valid aren't going be honoured and it ends up costing way more than expected.

We tried the mixed meat menu with 4 types of stakes. each was superb and very well made. The 3 of us shared what looked like a massive quantity of meat, but we ended up enjoying every bit of it and not feeling too heavy after all. Very high quality for a great price.

Great value for money and as the venue is very large they always have a table on Friday lunchtime busy hours. Steak is decent, even the set menu one. Service could be improved, waiters often don't write orders down and inevitably the don't get food or steak cooking preference right.
