Outstanding in every way. Great atmosphere - tasteful, relaxed and elegant. The food was excellent. The lobster in hazelnut sauce with avocado and artichoke hearts was a delightful mix of flavors . The halibut with beurre blanc was moist and delicious. The lamb chop was perfectly cooked. This ranks as one of the very best casual yet refined restaurants in London.

Originally, we were very disappointed to learn that Little Social has undergone a big change and had recently become No. 5. So much so in fact, that we were considering cancelling our reservation. We’re so glad we didn’t!
Loved the new restaurant! They managed to keep the best of the old, while introducing new improvements. The food is as good as ever. The decor is absolutely beautiful. The service is still friendly, welcoming and professional. Overall, a great dining experience. We love No. 5, and would recommend it highly.

We loved our recent visit to No 5 Social! It exceeded our expectations - we had a Set Price menu but the restaurant treated us with a pre-appetiser and pre- and after-dessert on top of our meal. The food was special and delicious. Also best espresso martini I’ve had in London - the foam had to be about 1.5 cm.

We were a party of 3 for lunch on a Friday. We were allocated the semi-private booth which provided the requisite degree of rivalry whilst not feeling stifled. Sliding doors can be closed if needed.
The service was prompt, informative, and friendly without being overbearing. A small amuse bouche started the proceedings which was a nice touch.
We mostly ordered off the a la carte menu, starting with the lobster dish and the poached egg dishes, both of which were outstanding, particularly the modest but exquisite lobster dish. The one other in our party ordered Gazpacho soup which was cleverly presented and which he claimed was delicious.
We then followed up with very pleasant cod and halibut dishes, the latter being poached and delicate with a beautiful separately poured sauce. The final main course was a sea bream dish, again with a separately prepared and poured sauce, deliver in person by the Head Chef.
There was a good selection of wine by the glass, and generous petit fours to go with our espresso.

This is not the cheapest place in London but it must surely rate as one of the biggest secrets.
The service was prompt without being intrusive, the ambience relaxed and the food was simply amazing. Definitely one worth trying!

So so pleased to be in the new, beautifully decorated space. The service is warmer than ever, including the enthusiastic and knowledgeable sommelier, and the food is marvelous. All of it. The lobster and avocado is so delicate! Thoroughly memorable dessert of choice strawberries, meringue, and English breakfast ice cream.

A truly excellent dining experience - a warm welcome by helpful staff, really good ambience, superb value and a top class meal (I had the fixed daily menu), beautifully presented and delicious. The chef Kostas Papathanasiou really deserves an accolade for his creativity, adaptabliity and willingness to engage charmingly with customers. I sense that one day he could well inherit the title of best Greek chef from my all time favourite Greek chef - Nico Ladenis who made such a major culinary impact on London. I made another booking immediately!

Everything totally amateur and food quite forgettable. Feels like they’ve opened too soon and couldn’t cope with a Friday night. Too many excellent choices in a London at this price point to recommend No 5 Social.

We went on opening weekend after the refurbishment from Little Social. Food was excellent. There were a couple of teething problems with timing and we were under a cold vent that couldn’t be corrected otherwise it would have been five stars all round.
