    Servers were lovely when first entering, they asked us to move about 5 minutes in so a larger group could fit but no bother as they were friendly and apologetic. Food arrived fast and tasted good, however when it came to the bill and they asked if we were splitting it the customer service was lost a bit. The server seemed agitated and added a servicing charge on top of our order without asking or acknowledging, which as students would have been helpful to know as we were budgeting. The server was stressed and didn’t seem to know how to use the till and when a colleague tried to assist, got angry at them. Apart from that one person, the overall experience was good and got us through a busy day .

    Food 1/5: Pancake was burnt and too dry American burger was dry and did not have much flavour Red velvet pancake tower had dry pancakes Red velvet cake was too crumbly Service 3/5: Servers were very kind however food took 45mins to 1 hour to arrive Once food received, order was messed up and had to wait additional time for missing food Although the ambience was nice, and the servers were kind, definitely will not be returning. The food was very bad, none of us finished our meals. Barely ate any of it and left hungry. However, the poor quality could be due to the restaurant being busy and food was rushed. Nonetheless it doesn’t excuse anything since customers are paying a lot of money

    Just the spot for a quick bite coming into Liverpool Street Station before a visit to theatre. Good food (no problems with vegan options), lively atmosphere, busy, but we were seated and attended too very promptly (a special mention to our server, Summer).

    Visited on the evening of 18th. My booking had not been looked at. Initially sat in a very small, noisy area then I asked to move as per my booking request as I have an autistic daughter. The blender was broken so we couldn't have milkshakes. The burgers came without onion rings and cheese. When I asked, I was told they had run out so had given me a different burger. The waitress did not advise of this when ordering and was quite dismissive when we raised it. The hotdogs come premade so children can't have one without onions and mustard. For £68 for 4, when we didn't get what we wanted, it didn't feel like good value for money at all!

    In an area where the prices in restaurants are high, this cafe is reasonably priced. There are many choices for English and American breakfast dishes and the plates come out heaped. It's a place where you see a waitress deliver to another table and you wonder what they are having because it looks so good. We paid £38 for two enormous meals which we couldn't manage to finish. It might not look too impressive from the outside, but wow - try the food. you might want to book because it was busy.

    Was pancake week and told no pancakes even though there was a pancake week flyer on our table. Waiters either very rude or just unbothered. Really cramped inside as well. The food was alright though my breakfast wasn’t supposed to come with beans and somehow a few ended up mixed in with my mushrooms - clearly used the same spoon to dish up or something. Probably wouldn’t come again unless I’m desperate at 3am.

    Really bad experience. Tables and chair greasy. Good not nice and cold. Asking if we were ready to order 2 seconds after we sat down even we said we were waiting for another person. Asked 4 more times if we were ready. When asked for tap water, the waitress showed “that” face. They offered us to pay the bill when some of us still eating! Poor quality sausage, cold pancake, warm coke.. I could keep saying but none good things. It was our third visit but never again

    As soon as we stepped through the door we were greeted by Milly and made to feel very welcome and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly, the service was quick, and yet the food was freshly prepared and delicious. The portions were generous and the coffee was excellent. It was a really good experience all round.

    I do enjoy dining at polo, food and drinks are really good… but on this occasion the foot wasn’t hitting like it usually does. I ordered the American burger with some fries and a side of mac n cheese balls. The mac n cheese balls weren't fully cooked or heated up enough as some parts in the inside were really cold like it was defrosting, and other parts were warm. Usually they come out piping hot. No problem I sent them back to warm up some more, but they still were cold in some parts which was a shame, but I didn’t want to be a fuss so I got them boxed up so I could bring them home and whack them in the air fryer lol. The fries were also warm and not hot enough. My daughter had a Philly cheese steak baguette and really enjoyed it. The service was really good, the team of servers are really polite and attentive. I also had a nice chat with someone I met on another table. But I still love this place regardless and will be back in the near future. Happy new year to the polo bar team.

    I booked a table for two. The one we were allocated was very cramped and one of us was actually blocking the only way other clientele could exit the cafe. Luckily we were able to move before our food arrived. Food was great. Service very efficient. It’s good value considering it’s in central London.

    The food wasn’t the best, pancakes were just drowned in cream. The hot dog tasted like the can sausages you warm up in hot water. The onions made it taste abit better. Lemonade wasn’t fizzy which was strange, we thought it was going to be fizzy. Wasn’t the greatest experience.

    Staff were very unhelpful. Made reservation but 3 people out of 11 arrived late. 2 out of the 3/4 meal options were not available despite us rebooking. Staff were unwilling to offer any replacements. As it was a Christmas party for work we didn’t want to make a scene but asked for manager Rose who again was very reluctant to offer any help or assistance. Staff explained it was unacceptable to pay £40 for beans toast and avocado but staff here thought it was.

    Food was great! We had the bottomless brunch, and they were slow to top us up at the beginning, but got much better towards the end. The place is very very cramped, so they should utilise the second floor more. I’d definitely return though, as the staff were friendly, and overall worth the value. Thank you.

    Great vegetarian breakfast for me and my Prosecco glass never remained empty!!! Great fun and I’ll certainly return again but maybe pace myself more professionally over the 1.5 hrs run time!!! Totally recommend.

    Milly was our waitress and let me tell you I’ve never come across someone so happy and bubbly and happy help and answer all our questions. A credit to your restaurant as you don’t see that very often. Five stars for her. Great place and food was lovely and you get very big portions.
