This was the second visit to this restaurant, the previous one was Christmas. It was too busy to really enjoy the meal then.
On this occasion the restaurant has enough people in to give it a nice atmosphere, but not too many people so that the staff could not give you extra care.
The food was delicious as we had the chateaubriand for the main course, this was cooked to perfection.
The fact that it was my 50th birthday was mentioned to the waiter and at the end of the meal the staff brought a surprise birthday treat for me.
I would definitely go back to this place

A very decent and cosy dining place located in Borough Market. Staff are very friendly. Food was delicious. We waited for a bit for the main and dessert though. Overall experience was excellent. Highly recommend and will come back again.

Out of the 4 of us, 1 had beef which was only average, the other 3 found their meals to be excellent.
Had to wait some time to get a drink before being seated, and when having our orders taken, were not asked if/what sides we would like. Main course followed starters almost as the starters were being cleared.
Would recommend Roast and go again but being aware of the above, as overall we enjoyed the food and venue.

We had a wonderful Sunday lunch recently to celebrate a birthday at Roast. It’s hard to please everyone as 3 generations of family dining together but everyone loved it, and our toddler was incredibly catered for. We will be back!

Whilst being very pricey, the service and quality of food as well as the speed of preparation was absolutely fantastic.

We had the aged roast beef and it was out of this world, tender, tasty and beautifully complimented by a horse radish paste ( I presume home made with locally sourced ingredients) and a massive fantasy-world looking Yorkshire pudding; this is as British as it gets folks.

Very extensive alcohol selection also, anything you could want or imagine which is always a plus.

I will definitely be returning with a larger party in the future.

Compliments to the chef and waitress that assisted me, hats off to you.

We had a mixtures of servers which made it confusing when you wanted something. Food came out in two seperate deliveries by one person, which meant a gap and food getting cold. Quiet time with plenty of staff around should have had two people bring the food all together.Nice but not an inexpensive meal.

Calm and very pleasant. Food was excellent and the staff very polite and attentive. Venue was great surrounded by Borough Market. The glazed style of the restaurant brought u in to the market environment whilst dining.

Food was lovely and reasonably priced but the price of wine and the amount of service charge added on made the final bill ridiculous, food which was advertised at £39.50 per head ended up with a final bill of £170 for two, we were even chadevice charged device charge on cocktails we had in the bar after the meal.

Was really looking forward to trying Roast but didn’t meet expectations. We had the Sunday menu... each roast didn’t include any greens, there was no roast option for vegetarians I.e a nut roast, the only option was pasta!
The service was slow, probably due to how busy the restaurant was. The table was cleared when guests were still eating!
The food was average, we had a mix of fish, and meet dishes. Cheese board for dessert was terrible.
Very over priced for value.
Such a shame, it seems like more of a tourist spot than a high end dining experience.

My roast lamb was salty, and there was a small piece of aluminium foil in my crumble. Didn’t make a fuss as I just couldn’t be bothered and didn’t want to spoil my afternoon with a friend who’s visiting from abroad.

One of my favorite restaurants in London. The food is a fresh, delicious and modern take to some classic meals. Love the Yorkshire served with the roasts and the pork belly is amazing. I always try to come when I have a trip to London and was pleased to bring my son and daughter along this time.

We arrived for our 7pm booking which was made ages ago to discover our table was literally right by the bar and at the end of a group of 40 tourists. We asked for another table and were told the only other table for 5 people (bizarre they only have two) the people were on coffee so would be about 20 mins. We had a drink at the bar and actually waited 48 minutes for our table by which stage we were fed up and just wanted to go home. Especially when you know the bill is going to be huge as well it just makes it worse to wait 48 minutes. Once we were seated the staff were very attentive and my Fillet steak which asked for rare as I know from experience that they always overcook the meat. My rare steak however was medium and very dry but I couldn't be bothered to complain and potentially wait for another one. They gave us free drinks from our bar tab. It was full of tourists and another table of 17 tourists was seated near us.

Excellent food, brilliant service, perfect birthday treat for my wife, they even lite a cancel for her dessert. Amazing window view of market below. One draw back I think I didn't see any beer on the drinks menu, maybe I missed it. I would highly recommend Roast to our friends, we've tried several restaurants in Mayfair, but I must say the food is top Michelin star grade.

I have been here numerous timed before. This was my second time dining here in 3 days, once for breakfast and once for Sunday lunch. As always the food was good and the dining room is really nice, if you're seated in the raised area. The service however, is just OK. Not very attentive and not very cheery. On Sunday lunch it took half an hour to get somebody to take our drinks order.

We are always looking for a good place to have Sunday roast lunch and given the name Roast, we figured it was a good bet. Service was excellent, as was the food. Our server was pleasant and attentive in spite of the restaurant being quite busy. We would definitely return.

Food was fine. For the money it wasn’t great. Also, a shop famous for Sunday roast, called roast.. distinct lack of veg sides on offer. No carrot, cauliflower, parsnip, gravy side on the menu. It was brocolli or seasoned greens. I attend a lot of restaurants through work and appreciate menu management and alignment with the target audience, but a shop called ROAST should cater for people that want an old fashioned roast.

Overpriced, eggs cold and poorly cooked on arrival at table, which is not ideal for brunch! Size of portion poorly described on menu as small dishes were priced at being more expensive than much more generous meals. Toilets filthy and poorly equipped, no hot water in taps.

Lovely place and food was great - though we didn’t realise it was a set menu on Sunday and were looking forward to the famous beef wellington (which wasn’t available!)

They were busy so the service wasn’t that great - our waitress was serving so many tables but instead of dealing with one at a time she was trying to multi task across many tables so quite often we were left waiting for menus or (worse) for our wine to be topped up.

Other than the above I’d recommend this place!

In terms of the dishes the “main events” were all great but the sides were rather a disappointing afterthought.
The waiter was friendly but the service was too casual for the price point the restaurant has set. Didn’t seem well briefed about the content of some of the dishes.
Overall a pleasant meal and venue.

The Market Menu in the restaurant are is fantastic value for money with 3 courses for £35. Dishes are selected from the main menu. My guest had the ham terrine to start, I had asparagus with a poached egg, we followed with the Barnsley Chop and Belly pork all were delicious and large portions too! We didn't have any room for the 3rd course although the selection was mouthwatering too. I'd thoroughly recommend Roast, our table upstairs had a fantastic view of St Paul's Cathedral. This is not the first time I've dined here and will certainly not be the last.

Having eaten here before but not for around 5 years it was a pleasure to experience Roast once again. Nothing had changed and it was still as good as I'd remembered. It's definitely one if my favourite places to eat in London!

Have been to roast many a times fr Breakfast and whilst it was enjoyable, it just seemed to be missing something.... I enjoyed the hot sandwich I had last week off their takeaway counter more than the sit down breakfast
