Delicious food, fantastic cocktails, great service and even an unexpected yummy surprise to congratulate my husband on his birthday. Couldn't have chosen a better place for his birthday meal!

Very friendly and great value! The food may not be the most innovative but it is all very competently sourced, cooked and served. The staff are exceptionally friendly. The set price menus are an absolute bargain. Offset a little by the wine prices starting a little higher than elsewhere, but still great value overall. Ambience is good, noise is moderate. |We will definitely be back.

Good value set menu with large portions.
Sadly they do not allow a doggy bag to take home.
Seems like a bad idea to waste food like this

Food is overpriced for what it is and the servers always seem to disappear as soon as they deliver the food - you have to go find them to ask for the bill or get another drink

Total disapointment, so much wrong with it, will never return and have no idea how they have so many positive reviews. The whole experience was seriously below par, even the menu items when brought to the table lacked some elements of the description.

A lousy restaurant and worth a miss.

Amazing food and was very spoiled as it was my birthday. Busy and very noisy - so if you want a quiet meal it’s not for you. But great atmosphere and loved the live DJ

I ordered the baked eggs and they were so overcooked they were nearly inedible. Service was pleasant but slow, had to ask for our bill after sitting at a cleared table for 10 minutes. Way too expensive considering the quality of food but in that location I guess a restaurant doesn't really have to make a huge effort.

Food was amazing sadly a little mess up with the bill and we were overcharged but that was all sorted quickly. Lovely waiting staff. £5 extra on the set menu for cheese and biscuits for desert was a bit much

There were 4 different waitors that served us, which made the dining experience a little disordered. Our drinking preference was asked just before the dinner was served and we had to ask again for the bottle of wine we ordered mid-dinner. The food was good and dessert was excellent.

Food is good, but the service was really poor. We had to ask for a coke 3 times. We ordered white wine and it came to the table warm, so we asked if there were any bottles cold enough but no one paid us attention until one of the managers passed by our table and we complained. Overpriced.

We had an amazing time. Booked a table for a birthday and they gave us a great table. The host Max was excellent and provided a great welcome, was really attentive throughout the evening and had a fabulous energy! We loved him, and we loved our waiter on the top floor.

The service was so fab that even when we had two surprise guests (being a birthday celebration and all) the female receptionist originally said they couldn’t join us, but our waiter and another male host stepped in and welcomed them and brought extra chairs to accommodate. This was lovely as no one wants to turn friends away who come to celebrate a birthday, and it demonstrated how a positive and can-do spirit can make an evening so much nicer and special.

The food was stunning, the drinks were fab, and Max even arranged a little birthday treat. We had such a good time that as we were about to leave, a few decided to stay for extra drinks at the bar.

The only downside was when we tried to order at the bar, the waiter ignored us and wouldn’t serve us. Only after a while, we were told quite rudely unless we sat down somewhere he wouldn’t serve us. There were odd vacant seats down the bar, so he said if we wanted to sit together, we’d have to ask the other guests to move down ourselves, but he made no effort to guide us to the seats. I didn’t mind this as I’m comfortable approaching strangers, but felt it was a bit off being told to do this. Once we were seated he told us it was a licensing issue that meant we can only be served if seated, which is totally fine, but the situation could have been handled way better, so I told him that there and then. He didn’t seem impressed and left us alone pretty much after that.

Other than that blip, we went out intending to have a good evening, and it was a fabulous experience and totally exceeded our expectations. We would definitely go back again, so I’ve given full stars for everything. Thank you!

Good place for drinks before the Theatre, but the food was not amazing. Cocktails were lovely and so was the ambiance but couldn’t give top marks given the food.

The food was delicious, but the service was simply TERRIBLE. To the point that we asked for the service charge to be removed. Everything took so long that we missed the start of the show we were going to see.

The space has real potential, but the food is mediocre and while the waiters were polite enough, they weren’t very good. The meals came missing side items and by the time they arrived the mains were already finished, and we had to order a coffee three times before it came as well. This space has had a load of different occupancies over the last ten years and this one had the most promise, but despite some trendy decor to try and create character, the food and service mean it’s unlikely to last.

I didn’t realize it was a bar/club when I booked it, but it was so late that I didn’t have any other options anyway. There was a DJ near my table so I couldn’t hear any conversation but the food was decent and the service was as good as could be expected under the circumstances.

Vibrant and fun - clearly very trendy, but staff welcoming and friendly. Food delicious - we had booked the 3 courses with prosecco. Nice range of choice and a deliciously tall glass of prosecco. The beetroot cured salmon was beautiful and the seabass had a wonderfully crunchy skin on the bottom and was perfectly complimented with the ratatouille.

Lots going on but the waiter was attentive and helpful throughout.

Fantastic food. Samantha was our server and we loved her. Wonderful service and she was so nice! The 3 course menu was perfect before going to the theatre. Can’t recommend this restaurant enough. Get the old fashioned drink, the presentation is really special!

Easy to make the rez online and were seated promptly upon arrival. My hubby & I were seated towards the back dining room which had a cool vibe with cool artwork and lighting. It was quite busy & loud as it was a Saturday night. Fun, cool, hip place to be. The waiter was prompt & professional and the rest of the staff great too. The drinks were great and the food was delicious! I would definitely recommend a fun dining experience here!

Good food and friendly staff. Very well located for the theatres. For London on a theatre night, the prices aren’t bad. We were able to get a 530p reservation which was perfect for dining and then wandering for a 730 show.

I would go again.
