We have booked No Fifty Cheyne for the dinner after Chelsea Flower Show. The restaurant has launched the special Chelsea Flower menu which were happy to try. Beautiful atmosphere and new interior design were very special. Have finished our dinner by sitting in the lounge upstairs with the panoramic view and with champagne kindly presented by the restaurant. Definitely will come back!

This was a first visit to Fifty Cheyne since its metamorphosis from rather a good gastro pub. We went for lunch after a tiring visit to Chelsea Flower Show.
The restaurant is attractive, bright and well laid out. We asked for and got a corner table. Service was professional and charming from an all-male team. We shared a main course of John Dory for two people and a bottle of very potable Gavi di Gavi at an amicable price. A more frugal use of the salt pot would have earned the food five stars.

I would put our issues down to teething problems. The decoration and feel is good, in particular the drinks area upstairs I can not fault. Sadly, downstairs the service was confused and slow. Our main course came to us before our starters (an hour after we had arrived).
Maitre D’ kindly discounted our meal so we might go back in six months to see if they have turned things around.

Always loved Cheyne Brasserie and we feel the restaurant has only improved. We had a fabulous evening , food was divine and our waitor Decio was attentive and outstanding. We liked the new decor and layout . Eating at the bar is a great option. Perhaps the tables could be a little further apart. Cant wait wait to eat there again

Really salty veg, dry cold mash potatoes, over cooked steak which had to be sent back and meant my boyfriend ate alone whist I watched him. When my steak finally arrived all the sides were stone cold. No attempt to bring anything fresh
The service was so off too. No one poured our wine once the main dishes arrived and none of the waiter staff seemed to be focused on a select few tables. They were all over the place.
Such a shame as the restaurant was recommended to me by a well know chef. Disappointing.

It was pleasant. But the waitress was trying too hard. Didn’t have great English. She interrupted our conversation twice to ask if everything ok. She should have waited or said excuse me. Only ribeye and sirloin steaks on me u. My husband asked ‘is it possible to get a fillet?’ Her reply ‘yes. Would u like a ribeye Or sirloin ‘!! I asked if any bones in the fish. She said yes to both fish choices. As I was about to choose something else she says ‘no bones. No bones.’. Staff trying too hard to be more experienced than they were. Annoyingly so.

Sadly disappointed as this has been recommended by a friend who knew the chef so we came with high hopes to celebrate my mother’s birthday.

There were some highs and some lows and some really basic mistakes like 3/6 pieces of bread in the bread basket visibly burnt and wine spilled as it was poured.

Wine list was in the probably the smallest font I have ever seen in a restaurant and really needed a magnifying glass for all but the youngest of eyes at our table.

The biggest low was the catch of the day which was a tuna steak, sold as medium rare but pretty well done and topped with a disaster of sweet fruit chutney and some unidentifiable vegetable overpowered by the chutney and some past their best tomato slices - badly cooked and badly balanced.

The steaks were highs for those that had them while the other fish dishes were pleasant but plain.

Starters were similarly a mixed bag, smoked salmon with warm potatoes was another confused dish with no clear direction and the scallops and squid dish was destabilised by a cheesy champagne sauce.

Dessert wise the posset was a high while the chocolate cake was average and the pear crumble disappointed both of us that had it.

Sadly no gesture to either the celebration (mentioned when I booked and when I arrived) nor to the sent back fish dish when the bill came.

Overall a bit of a disappointing visit and not sure I would recommend at the price point of over £100 a head.

Whilst I loved the old bluey Tiffany coloured banquets of cheyne walk Brasserie they have created a truly beautiful decor (clearly someone dropped some doe). Upstairs bar very sexy

Mr Chef clearly knows what he’s doing - food was very good.

The fire alarm went off a couple of time (by mistake I believe) but I’ll give them a mulligan - teething with a new building I guess

We will revisit for sure

From the moment we stepped inside the newly renovated No. Fifty Cheyne we were not disappointed. The service was fantastic, the staff were attentive and helpful. It makes such a difference to the whole experience when the staff are jolly and fun without being too intrusive. We look forward to returning for another dining experience soon.....most importantly the food was amazing.

We had a family lunch for Mother's Day at the new re-opened No. Fifty Cheyne. I have been a regular for the last 15 years and was not disappointed! The new layout is modern and airy while maintaining the unique atmosphere of the restaurant, the food from the new menu was excellent, and the service was outstanding. Bravo!

Same lovely venue, pretty similar and very nice food, excellent service. Not sure why they needed to change it. Decor still very pleasant but far less distinctive. Just inoffensive style rather than the old stand out distinctiveness. Silly new name. What was wrong with the old one? Music improved albeit 10% too loud. Excellent evening and there will be many more.

Not quite . The food is OK and may not be worth the value if you pay full price. We were there for the soft launch. The only thing I would recommend about the place is the ambiance. Definitely have the wow factor but the food is way too pricey for its value. The waiters need to be better trained to ensure they serve properly. Won't go there again
