I love what used to be little social, and the food was very tasty indeed, but the portions were remarkably small, but the prices have stated hi (and we didn’t even have any wine). Will still come, this really meant to be constructive feedback.

good food, well presented plates and 3 courses are more than enough to have on one evening. cosy atmosphere. well educated staff, I would only recommend to serve the g&t seperately and not already serve together in the glass

As an old fan of Little Social, I was initially quite disappointed with the new menu but the food was exceptionally tasty and good and we enjoyed the food very much. The service was a little slow but all the staff we interacted with with knowledgeable and very eager to serve.

Definitely would come back but really would like the music volume to be a little lower

Had booked for a pre theatre meal and was amazed at the quality of the food and the excellent service. Our booking was for 6 which is when the restaurant opens so it was very quiet but I will definitely be returning and next time hope to spend longer eating and drinking. Thank you.

The food is really very nice and well presented. The staff are very engaged with their customers and service time is really spot on. No hanging around waiting for the food to appear. I have eaten in two other JA restaurants and all are to a very good standard. This was my third visit to 5 Social and I will be back and have already recommended to friends

Lovely meal here again and I would highly recommend this restaurant. We ordered from the a la carte and given the calibre of food/technical skill; really very good value for money. Only downside was our main waitress, though not rude, pretty stern and unfriendly which was disappointing as all other staff encountered were on point.

Opted for the lunch prix fixe for a weekday lunch date. Main course took 45mins to arrive, which on top of the 15 minutes to place the order meant that my dining companion had to leave within minutes of his food arriving, as I did shortly thereafter. My complaint was met with a polite but rather disinterested shrug. Good to know that other diners have unlimited time for lunch.

We went for a pre theatre meal and loved it. Great price fixed menu. I ordered the gazpacho and fish, my husband ordered the pork chop. Both were delicious. Very convenient to the theatre.

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.
