Totally oversold and completely underwhelmed by this supposed Basque restaurant, it’s nothing of the sought as going to a real one in Donostia wouldn’t leave you feeling hungry a couple of hours after a 2 course Sunday meal.

No bread, no complimentary olives nothing, just ridiculously overpriced food in tiny portions. Most bizarre was the pouring of a minuscule amount soup out of a small china vessel into my bowl at my table - I mean what is all that about?

Lastly, we waited an eternity for our mains after our starter and when it did come, the vegetables were cold.

The restaurant itself was nice looking but it was uncomfortably silent - no atmosphere at all. The staff were good.

I was so looking forward to eating here hence the strong review.

Second time I have been to Sagardi and the first time (pre-pandemic and a Saturday evening) was excellent. Some of the best steak in town.
But Sunday lunch last week was much less successful. The main course beef took time because they had run out and then it arrived cold. Accompanying vegetables were also cold and tasteless. They had also run out of the pumpkin soup starter and offered thistle soup instead. It was inedible, as you might expect.
Service is tricky with face masks, etc, but felt particularly uninspiring this time round.
This used to be a place I would recommend to anybody in the Shoreditch area, but now I am not so sure.

Great meal in a great restaurant, we loved it and will definitely eat there again. The only things that let it down was the intermittent service, our waitress was lovely but it was pretty difficult to get hold of her to order more drinks and ultimately pay.

2nd visit. Rather disappointing and very overpriced food. Nasty aggressive pickles as an amuse bouche. Clams (£22!) were in a claggy and unpleasant sauce. Salad (at £5) was just basic iceberg swimming in oil. They upsell the expensive steaks very heavily. Very friendly and efficient service and a nice dining room.

Hi there,
I really enjoyed our time at your restaurant. However, I'd like to make one comment about your testing menu: it was 52 GBP and we were sure that would be for the whole menu for 2 people and not for each of us.
If I had known or if your staff had explained it we would have never chosen it as it wasn't worth it.
The rest was fine.
Thank you

Waiters and kitchen staff were just hanging around and chatting, there were only about 5 tables that needed to be served, but took time to get the waiters attention, I had to leave my table and go to the bar just to order, The food itself was not good, that may be just down to ordering a Spanish Sunday roast, I’ll come back again and try the Tapas.

Really great food. Had pretty good service with the manager explaining the steaks and where they came from and how they cooked them. Was a little annoyed when we order our tomato and bread(£3.50) and our waiter asked if we wanted a little ham with it, which we said yes to, and the ham turned out to be £24!! A rather large upsell and probably should have let us know how much it was. Other than that, delicious food and wine.
