    The food and service was impeccable at Searcys. We were well attended to, and the staff were excellent - we never felt rushed or ignored. Presentation of the food was amazing - every course had its little bit of detail to make it that bit more special. My girlfriend had the mussels with mini baguettes for her main, which was very flavoursome and the mussels tasted super-fresh. I had the battered haddock with triple-cooked fries and it was lovely - the tartare sauce was not quite as tart as standard tartare sauce, which was a good thing because it can often overwhelm the taste of the fish. When I originally made the reservation, I'd nominated it as a 'birthday' event (my girlfriend's birthday), but had forgotten it was asked when booking online - so when the waiter turned up at the end of the meal with a plate that had chocolate writing that said "Happy birthday", it finished off a lovely evening at the restaurant. Overall, a great experience - definitely somewhere I'd book again for a special event. The cost of the meal is out of my usual budget, so it's hard to recommend if you're looking for "a dinner with value". But Searcys can't be faulted in the slightest for its great service and tasty dishes.

    Excelllent service and delicious food. We had squid and mini burgers (the plate comes with 3 mini burgers) as weren't particularly hungry, and bot dishes were delicious coming in a genererous portion. Berry tart for desert was excellent too - not too sweet allowing to enjoy berry falovors.

    Hidden gem among the bustle of St Pancras. A classic elegant brasserie with comfortable seating for chatting and eating. Excellent food from a traditional menu cooked with care. The service team do their job well. Not a bargain but worth it.

    Just the place for a mother-daughter lunch. The food was yummy and the service was even better. We were very well looked after by a team of excellent waiters. It's a chic atmosphere that was warmed up with lovely holiday decorations. Fun to be at a train station.

    Went for a Xmas night out with a friend. The place is lovely, nice atmosphere, staff were friendly. The actual main course of Xmas dinner was surprisingly small and didn't have some of the usual trimmings - like pigs in blankets or parsnips. However what was there did taste very good. The wine was quite overpriced at £33 for a pinot grigio. The main thing that shocked us though was it closed up at 10.30pm on a Friday night. Then on leaving we found most of the surrounding places in the area close at that time too! Not my usual experience of London at all.

    Service wasn't great. Had to chase up our drink orders more than once and still a drink was forgotten but added to the bill. Also we had a mince pies included in our set menu which we also had to chase. Food was average.

    Comfortable brasseries setting, good amount of space between tables, attentive service but not obtrusive. Food is good value, wine a little expensive. On the upper concourse it's away from the hubbub of the station.

    Four of us had dinner here. We wanted somewhere stylish but not too expensive. It was a Thursday and many places were busy. This brasserie was an oasis of calm and sophistication despite being in a busy railway station. We had the set menu which at £29 for three courses was excellent value and delicious. Service could not have been better by a waiter who could easily have been singing opera on an insurance comparison site. Recommend.

    You would think a restaurant in a train station would be used to serving people efficiently and accurately. Unfortunately, the service here was abysmal, we were there for almost an hour and a half, our first round of coffees took nearly twenty minutes, our toasts were burnt, our eggs were overcooked - and all of this in a restaurant where only 5% of the tables were filled. I was surprised to see such a lovely restaurant with so many last-minute bookings available on OpenTable - now I see why.

    Food lovely. Service not great which was very different from previous visit. Unfortunately this time we were not asked once during or after food if everything was ok, we poured most of our own drinks, not asked if wanted anything else like sauces etc, almost felt like an inconvenience. Not what expected when paying these prices and automatic service charge. Bit disappointed really.
