I’d been wanting to visit Roast for a while so was pleased to now do so. Caught up with a friend for dinner. Food was very very tasty. Wine by the glass slightly on the expensive side. Will definitely be back though.
Great food and amazing service!
Clean and friendly environment little over priced but happy with meal.
specifically picked the resturant for my guest who is vegetarian as Roast website states it has a full vegetarian menu - it doesnt - really really dissapointed with that as i'd built it up with my partner and she was really excited - there was limited options for vegetarians - not good
Loved it. Thankyou very much
I would definitely go again
Perfect mothers day spent here the roast beef is one of the best i have ever had
Lovely restaurant, very good food and service despite it being a very busy Mothering Sunday! Had the 3 course Sunday lunch and all thoroughly enjoyed the different options. 2nd year in a row visiting for mother’s day and it didn’t disappoint
We had a good time at Roast but we were actually disappointed in what we thought would be their speciality and that was the roast! For 35 quid we got two slices of beef, an average Yorkshire pudding and a small bowl of potatoes. No other veggies at all and the gravy wasn't anything special either. It all tasted fine but you are just expecting something very impressive for that price. It was very busy but the service was still very good. We went for a birthday and the staff brought out a special birthday surprise which was lovely. So a good experience but expensive for what it is.
Front of House staff were the least friendly we have encountered in a while. Our waitress, however, was a genuinely friendly and lovely. Unlike the food, which was mediocre.
The chateaubriand was ordered rare but arrived medium. The quality of the meat wasn’t great, especially for a restraunt whose USP is meat. The rosemary roast potatoes didn’t have any rosemary on them, were bland and over cooked - powdery rather than fluffy in the middle.
We had two bottles of wine. The Chevanceau was not good - almost watery - but Roast’s own specialty Malbec was delicious, if a little on the expensive side at £55 a bottle for a house wine.
The bill came to just over £350 for four of us just for mains, without starters or dessert.
Overall the food was average - think Cafe Rouge - but four times the price.
Very good food. Lovely setting. Friendly staff. View to St Paul’s and The Shard, very impressive.
Had lunch with an old friend, great food and service and worth the price. The only downside, and I'm being picky, was the other clientele. Mostly business lunches and, due to the location, I'd say media and banker ws, so probably go for dinner or Sunday roast next time.
I stupidly chose the vegetarian breakfast - big mistake. Th sausages were pretty much inedible! The rest was ok but a bit under whelming especially for the price!
Great venue for a client breakfast. Still the best breakfast in London for me.
Service friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
Food is traditional and modern British with a focus on British sourced produce. Standard and presentation is fine dining but with generous portions.
We arrived early and took the chance to enjoy cocktails as an aperitif. Promptly and well presented my Caipirinha was the antidote to a cold winter's evening.
Scotch eggs starters tasty and with yolks perfectly runny.
My companions chose the beef rib roast and 48 day sirloin respectively. These came with fluffy Yorkshire pudding and toasties. A sprinkle of salt on the latter would have made them perfection.
I chose the lamb rump which was served beautifully pink. A side of winter greens was rich and unctuous with butter.
Generous portions meant we did not attempt dessert in spite of the temptation of rhubarb crumble.
This is great British food served with style. Perfect for Sunday lunch. But do book to avoid disappointment.
We love this place as we usually dine here for special occasions. We brought a friend along this time and he also loved it. The food was exceptional as always and the service is always fantastic. Thanks for a lovely Sunday feast!
This was a fantastic experience for a special occasion. The food was divine and a buzzing atmosphere. We waited a long time between starter and main course but think we were just unlucky. The service was excellent and they made up for the delay by extra giving extra food. Couldn't fault that. Would definitely recommend and in great location.
4 of us had Sunday lunch at Roast on 4 March 2018. The service was slow - two meals arrived at least 5-10 minutes before the other 2 meals. The vegetables were not "al dente" - they were nearly raw. The meat was warm - not hot.
We were very disappointed as we have eaten at Roast before, and loved it. I don't know if it was because they were busy, or because it was a Sunday - but we felt very let down. We did not leave a tip.
I asked the Sommelier for a light, white wine - dry - almost clear in colour - and I got a yellow, oaked wine which was nothing like what I wanted. After sending it back, I then got offered a taste of 2 different wines which were much more like I had requested.
It felt to us as if they were struggling with the amount of diners - perhaps they should reduce the numbers a bit and concentrate on the service and quality of food
I had a delicious birthday meal. The beef wellington special was outstanding.
I had been to Roast last year while visiting London and loved it. This time, the salad was too salty and Ribeye steaks unremarkable. The sticky toffee pudding remains delicious.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meals. 4 of us - all had something different. All cleared the plates! The oysters were delicious!
Food was fine as was the hospitality but the waiting staff were not familiar with the menu and dishes - unusual for a upscale restaurant. Rib eye and fish were fantastic and the staff were very welcoming and kid friendly. The atmosphere of the restaurant is great as it strides above an empty Borough market below. Will be back
Good atmosphere, great service and excellent food. It was a special occasion and our waitress sang happy birthday
There's always a great buzzy atmosphere at Roast and the food is really tasty - there's an excellent vegetarian and vegan menu too, which is brilliant. Staff are friendly and helpful and they serve very nice cocktails. Great place to celebrate a special occasion, whether it's just for two of you or a group.
Great food. I had the set lunch which was excellent and good value. Had a lovely table by the window. Others had beef wellington which they said was excellent.
Our first visit and it was great. One of our group is both dairy and gluten intolerant and I vegetarian. The waiting staff were really helpful and everyone had a lovely meal.
The food was nice, but not mind-blowing for the prices. The service was variable - a few of the team were really friendly and helpful and attentive. I've always wanted to go and I am glad I went.
I booked Roast for a colleague who was taking out someone for a business lunch (i have eaten there before) and he thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Good food, good service and excellent selection of dishes that are good for vegetarians/vegans!
My second time there and just as excellent. Thanks!
Roast always delivers. Went with a friend on a Monday night, and still busy. Had the great chicken livers and barley for a starter - and then a fantastic veal suet pudding for main. Yes, there's plenty of fantastic roast or grilled meat on offer (my friend had an excellent ribeye), but that veal suet pudding was just glorious!
The food wine and service were all great but I cannot give a higher review as it appeared all diners were crowded into part of the restaurant with other parts completely empty so you could have your conversation or the one on the table next door.
This was our fourth visit to the restaurant and, as usual, the food was outstanding. However, the service this time was very substandard; the wine was served to our guests at a different time than when our wine was brought to the table, it was extremely difficult to get any waiter's attention after the initial serving, the waiter attempted to take my plate away before I and two others were finished eating. When the bill arrived I stated I did not want to accept the tip automatically included in the bill as I thought the service was poor. The waiter did not ask for any details, did not apologise and in fact said nothing. It was very clear that the waiter was not trained properly and if The Roast wants to keep its Michelin Guide status it is going to have to give a lot more attention to its service.
Lovely family brunch - great views and atmosphere.
Great meal and were very accommodating managing to fit an additional 2 seats last minute.
Fantastic place to enjoy quintessential British care and with enthusiastic service
Good buzz, decent staff especially at the bar, food choices not the best (fiddly sea bass on the bone, ox cheek flavourless, tiny oysters, dried out truffle chips, not a £120 per head experience sadly.
My first visit to Roast. My friends have been before. We indulged a little and went for the tasting menu - I've never had Oysters before, and to be honest I can't see why people rave about them. I did though really enjoy the tasting menu and accompanying wines. Living in Kent I visit Chapel Down a couple of times a year and so the wine was familiar. The food was great, the ambiance was great and the service showed great attention to detail without being fussy. Thanks for a very enjoyable experience.
My first visit following huge amount of glowing recommendations and already planning my next - this time with the family instead of business meeting. Just fabulous - thank you
Relaxed and enjoyable breakfast
Excellent restaurant in Borough Market - good food & service.
Excellent food and drink with professional service
