Beetroot Salad and Sour Cream
Staff were welcoming and trying very hard to make things work- cutlery arrives with a little napkin in servers hand. We were seated on the terrace so open air. Food was excellent including a great beetroot and yoghurt chlodnik soup. Nice fruit vodkas with pudding. Support your local restaurant and dine out!! Hurrah.
Wonderful setting and excellent service. Looking forward to our next visit already
Brilliant restaurant, having not tried much polish cuisine was a little unsure but as the reviews said it’s very good and amazing food. The frontage is like a house so look carefully for the address. Will definitely visit again
A very pleasant place in which to have lunch. The ambience is both sophisticated and welcoming. We were given a table at the window as requested with a pleasant view of green space outside. The staff were extremely pleasant and the portions were generous and reasonably priced.
Ognisko is consistently good and we particularly like the bar area.
Well, you mean experience about my date? Amazing!!! But it wasn’t due to the restaurant but the person i met 😀
I thought it was absolutely wonderful. I would not change a thing. The ambience is one of the very very best in London. The dining room is superb, I just loved it. I would go again and again and again. In fact I would go every week if I could. It was so refreshing and wonderful to go somewhere in London that wasn't the same similar everywhere type of bistro.
Pre-theatre menu is of good value. Food is so so, nothing really special. Dessert is really good, I like the white chocolate cheesecake so much.
Fantastic location, close to all the Museums, Royal Albert Hall and Kensington Gardens. The restaurant is in a beautiful house and has great ambience. Food was delicious, service impeccable. Thank you; we will be back with further family members and friends!
Nice and good food, good service.
Even when we was late we still got table.
It was wonderful. Bartender was skilled and bar selection was very good. Food was very tasty and we'll presented.
Great Polish food and prompt if somewhat brisk service in a very atmospheric dining room with a varied menu and drinks list
Great Polish cuisine and culture. Club like atmosphere
excellent, one of a kind..lovely dining room, reasonably priced for this part of town
Excellent food and good friendly service. Good lcation.
Awful! Please don’t ever think that this is what Polish or Russian food is like. The only nice thing was the bread. Smoked eel starter was nice but only had 3 small pieces of eel in it, covered by carrots to give it a more decent look. Potato pancakes were way over fried and gravladax salmon was so salty, almost inedible. When I made a comment to the waiter about salmon being unbearably salty he laughed it off and tried to bribe me with a vodka shot saying ‘have a shot of vodka to kill the saltiness in your mouth’. Not cool! Apology would have been better. My husband’s beef tartare and rabbit main were not that great either. Slow service in general, clearly understaffed for a Friday night. And if you are going to bother with white table cloths, at least find some time to iron them
Enjoyed an excellent lunch at Ognisko, though myself and my guest felt harried by the over-zealous staff.
Excellent! Surpassed my expectations.
Another lovely meal at Ognisko, my husband has Polish heritage and it always makes him happy to dine here and eat delicious and well prepared versions of classic Polish dishes.
Always a fun experience in a grand location. Our French friends were very impressed by the rooms and the food. The salad starters were excellent as were the various main courses. And we managed to squeeze in desserts of pavlova and honey cake which were all good.
We had to wait 30 mins for our soup and then another 30 for the mains. The soup was lovely and very tassty. |The mains were nice but arrived my partner's steak was cold, but the fries were super hot so i guess they just left it waiting. As we were in a hurry we just left without raising it.
Our favourite restaurant in the world. So special, so hidden away. Food fab, bar brilliant and no background music. Service excellent. A special gem
Everything was delicious, staff was friendly, accommodating and Attentive. The ambience and decor was really elegant. We enjoyed out dinner very much.
Amazing food, service and ambience, will definitely be returning
Beautiful relaxing atmosphere.
High quality food.
Hearty Polish food made elegant!
Had to wait long time to get served. Food was delivered after 40 min. Apart from that everything has been great. Nice atmosphere and delicious food, a bit overpriced though. Recommend!
Absolute gem of a place in London with incredible vodka choices and great food. Will definitely be returning.
Really enjoyed our meal, the bin-end wine was amazing and the service was just right. I’ve been 3 times before and will certainly be going again 😃
Elegent room...staff excellent...wine by bottle excellent
Downside..wine by glass impossible to find anything...has to go through three glasses before acceptable not great barolo seranlunga bin end...and it is not the price point we worry about ...just none!
We go ther probably twice a month post v@a frisay evening ..limited winelist by glass probably one reason why we dont go more often
Fantastic cocktail list. Truly classy and elegant style. Excellent menu. No rushing. You can stay as long as you like.
Awesome restaurant! The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The homemade cherry vodka is great!
Don't know where to start. Everything was exceptional. The food was tasty and delicious. The staff were amazing.
Our second visit to Ognisko and will definitely go back. Good food and service. Wine expensive but wouldn't stop us from visiting again.
We loved the food but I wasn't impressed with the service. We met friends in the bar for a drink, I eventually managed to ask for some menus. A waiter came to see if we wanted to go to our table and I asked if we could place our order or would he take it at the table - he said at the table, whereupon he disappeared! We had been in the restaurant an hour before we placed our order. The staff were very pleasant but not pro-active. On the plus side, no one hassled us out. Maybe this is the Polish way. We will go back but be aware of the service.
Had a wonderful evening. The restaurant was booked solid by 6.30 and the service was a tad slow but under the circumstances completely understandable. Alway such a pleasant experience eating at Ognisko - delicious food , lovely service and a lovely atmosphere.
Great food, amazing flavoured vodka drinks, quick and helpful service, convenient for pre-show dinner (e.g. at Royal Albert Hall). Absolutely top notch. Highly recommend.
I have lunched here several times.
Pleasant eaterie with a good bar. Good service.
Food is a welcome break from more pretentious offerings elsewhere.
It was the first time I had been to the restaurant but my friends and I will definitely be back. The food and the service was great.
Excellent menu, food very well presented, service was truly excellent ... a place my wife and I will be returning to very soon. A real gem.
Recommended by friends and well worth a visit. Lovely restaurant and friendly staff willing to explain if you’ve not eaten Polish food before. We thought potato dumplings great as starter, maybe bit boring as main. Portion size is excellent and although not cheap, great value for location, quality etc. Good choice for special meal out. Will definitely go again.
