    Fantastic ambience. Authentic tasting pizza’s. Welcoming and friendly staff. Brilliant pianist taking requests. Service and atmosphere were above and beyond. The staff couldn’t do enough for us. Highly recommend a visit hear you listen to some lovely music at a great venue.

    Didnt have food so put 'moderate' to get to next stage of review. Piano is not the same now it's moved from it's previous location opposite the tube station. No atmosphere, completely different crowd and no vibe. Very disappointed. Also, tried to call several times to inform we would be 10 mins late and the phone was (eventually) answered by Housekeeping!

    Piano bar in Kensington! But it’s not the old piano bar in Kensington. It has improved on some aspects - service. Musicians did not compare. Played and solicited request after request. Had no plan for the evening, too much hard work for me.

    In its classy new venue, the Kensington Piano Bar remains one of the best nights out in London.

    Piano KensingtonResponded on 14 June 2022Hi Andy, Thanks for your review - we are so glad you like the new venue within the Royal Garden Hotel and did everything we could to maintain the good time vibes always associated with Piano Kensington. We will hope to see you again soon for another great night! Musical wishes Piano Bar Team

    The cocktails were sublime. The food was excellent. I had wished that the servers had offered food. Only when I saw other people ordering did I realize food was available and by then the kitchen was closing. They did make an effort for me though which was appreciated. The music was just fantastic. For me personally, I found the group of party goers ruined the atmosphere a little for those of us that really just wished to sit back and enjoy the piano. They danced and made a huge noise right in front of the piano - a little inconsiderate perhaps. The musician handled whatever was thrown at him. I thought him a very special talent .

    I booked for a group of us for my birthday so was in communication with the team beforehand and they were fantastic, super responsive, friendly and helpful. Service was great. We didn't eat so can't comment on that. Was a bit worried when we arrived at 20.00 as very quiet with just a few couples sitting around, but it got full and lively later. Pianist took requests so spent the night dancing and enjoying the fantastic music. Definitely recommend.

    Piano Bar Kensington is the most fun you can have in London! But you must go when Adam is playing (usually Weds and Fri). On April 1st there was a different pianist before Adam and he did not generate the same singalong piano bar vibe Adam did. Bar food was pretty good, ambience electric!

    We had an amazing time at piano kensington. The staff were super attentive and went out of their way to make the evening great. Pianists were out of the world too! We ordered food from uber eats and were even brought plates and cutlery. Can't wait to return!

    We met some friends here for drinks. The service was superb, with just a nod to the waiter more drinks arrived. The pianist was fantastic, extremely talented musician and singer with an extensive repertoire. We didn't eat, so can't comment on the food. We would come back again in a heartbeat and just spend all evening listening to the pianist and dancing. Fabulous place.

    I had not returned to Piano for almost 3 years, since the move to the new location. As always, a night to remember. I actually found the new location better, more space to dance. James Sayer was absolutely wonderful!!!! What a return to Piano, thank you!

    A lovely pre dinner cocktail with nice piano music. Would have liked some snacks to have with our drinks but there were none available. Was envious of the customer who had ordered his own takeout and ate it whilst sitting at the piano!

    Too loud and miss behaving young girls and screaming to the music. It’s nice to hear piano music with a lower tone. Is it a piano bar or a disco!

    The kitchens aren't open, so you could only buy in food via Uber Eats. You were prohibited from bringing your own bag of nuts or food from any other source. I would have thought that, at these prices for cocktails, there could have been complimentary nuts and seeds available, but apparently, covid restrictions meant that they could not manage this - cannot understand why! The pianist (from 6.30) was absolutely brilliant and we had a hugely enjoyable (£65 bottle) champagne-fuelled celebratory three hours there. The cocktails were mainly £13.50. We look forward to going again for a pre or post-supper drink and when there's something available to nibble! This is NOT a restaurant!
