Was introduced to this restaurant during Meatopia 18, had an excellent discussion about the beef, time before slaughter, time hung, and associated merits. Chose a 1 kg ribeye with plenty of marbling and the flavour and taste did not disappoint. Fun and attentive staff and good ambience. Only criticism was the temperature of the meat serving plate.

While the food was tasty and of good quality we really felt that it was poor value for money. The 3 starters we had were overpriced for the quantity offered and the tuna and the pulpo that we had for main was also in our view overpriced. The meat was perhaps the only thing that was fairly priced. All in all £325 for a Sunday brunch for 5 was a bit excessive in our view.

It is a bit overpriced for what it was, and the service wasn't the best - they forgot to take our order and served the couples around us before us, even though we had been sat there for a while. During the whole evening it did feel a bit like the wait staff either forgot we were there, or weren't bothered about service us. It wasn't overly busy so that can't have been the excuse. It was fine, but am in no hurry to go back. What saved it was that the steak was good (though again a little overpriced considering how much of it we actually got).

Very disappointing experience overall. The photos didn’t really match the experience, the waitress who sat us down was very nice though, otherwise, we got the £64 5 course diner offer with the FT, the 4 plates all had exactly the same seasoning, olive oil and that s it, the food itself was good because it s fresh products, but it lacked flavors, yes the olive oil was nice but I expect to be experiencing something new and different which wasn’t the case. On of the waiters was trying to be nice and helpful but you could tell that we were annoying when we were really just asking some help with the wine and then we made the mistake to ask for bread to another waiter and he wasn’t very happy because the bread was supposed to be served with the next plate... I felt like I had to apologize and told them that I would be happy to pay for extra bread. So yes not a great service at all, really felt like we were annoying the waiters, when I asked if it was possible to have cheese instead of th dessert they had to escalate to their manager to know if it was possible which they btw kindly accepted but again felt like we were asking to move mountains. Wine was good enough and not terrible expensive for such a place. Long story short, not worth the expansive bill we thought.

Always a great dinner at Sagardi whether for date night or for a business dinner. Excellent meats, wine selection and friendly service. Fine cuts and great wine are not inexpensive. These guys get it right.

A super dinner with wonderful service. Staff were keen to talk about the food and the recommended wines were well-matched. As you would expect the beef was succulent and tender. We had the set menu and I was a little worried that the Cornish squid would not be to my taste, but it was delicious.

The food is Spanish but so is the service. I've been here 3 times and the lack of service has been pretty poor.
Even when only there were less than 8 diners, it takes several minutes to egt their attention and they seem quite unwilling to explain the menu when you have questions.

We asked for help 3 times regarding the menu and each time when he answered the question he just walked off. there was no checking if we were ready to order, wanted to order drinks before starting. everything was a lot of effort to get their attention to come over and help.

Twice was on a Sunday evening with basically no customers. The waiters just don't want to be left alone it seems ..good food, but frustarting experience

We went for a dinner with a party of 10. The food was outstanding. It is best if you are a proper carnivore as their beef cuts are out of this world. The best pieces are quite chunky (and meant to be shared), so - unless you're very, very hungry - may be too large for two.

They have a very extensive wine list with some rarer finds from the Basque region of Spain.

Cheap it ain't but worth it! I'll be back.

Excellent evening again at Sagardi, the quality of the food / cooking is superb to serve simple and authentic basque dishes - in particular the aged beef cooked on charcoal
The wine list is also extensive and I've not had a bad bottle to-date
Service as always is friendly , casual and genuine
In terms of atmosphere, whilst the restaurant is fine, it's the lack of customers at times that can make it feel less of an occasion but the points above always make up for that
Pricing wise, it's not a cheap night out but never less than enjoyable for the food and drink being served

This restaurant has got lots of potential, because both the food and the ambiance are really nice. However, despite this, it is not a restaurant I would recommend to anyone, simply because, as it happened with the friends I dragged there, I would feel too responsible for the extortionate prices that I would make them pay for food that does not have that value.

I was aware that it was not cheap (I had read previous reviews), but I don't mind paying, as long as I believe the value of what the restaurant is offering is fair. For example, the amount of work that goes in the kitchen of a Michelin star restaurant is enormous so neither me, nor my friends, are annoyed if we are charged high prices for a dish. Unfortunately, this was not the case here. The prices are extortionately high for things that have very little value. For example, a plate with two baby lettuce sliced in half (10 seconds of work), plus 4 anchovies on the top (another 10 seconds), with a bit of olive oil dressing, is priced at £14 (when service is added to that, it goes to £16!).

The BBQ meat, I agree, is fantastic, but be prepared to pay a fortune. We paid £70 (plus service) for the cheapest steak, which hardly fed two.

On the plus side: the mash potato is the best I ever had.

As a summary, if this restaurant wants to get it right, it should half the prices of virtually everything, except for, maybe, the meat.
