Not easy to find as signage is very discrete. Table booked for 5:30pm due to travelling arrangements but very quiet even at 8pm. Service was not as attentive as it could have been but acceptable. Food excellent and well presemted. I do not like a standard tip of 12.5% being added as I like to choose the appropriate level. Overall we would dine here again.

Firstly it is centrally locates and easy to travel to and locate. The food was good, a little nouvelle cuisine, so well presented but also with some interesting combinations of flavours. The fact it is at an International station gives a varied and interesting clientele if you like people watching. The wine selection was OK, but perhaps a tad expensive.
I was impressed with the service. It was professional in the true meaning... thourough watchful and attentive. So in short I had a very pleasant lunch.

It was very good! Surprisingly good, outstanding food and a very well thought and cheap wine menu, friendly stuff and nicely decorated venue. Best discovery in open table year-to-date.

The worst customer service I’ve ever experienced. We were there for breakfast and had to wait 40 minutes for the wrong coffee. Eventually the correct coffee turned up but was cold. Rude unhelpful staff. Everyone blamed everyone else for the issues. Walked out as couldn’t bear to prolong the experience any longer so never did get to eat my breakfast - which was nearly an hour after I’d ordered it. Avoid, avoid, avoid!

We had a great lunch - fantastic location and a nicely decorated restaurant. We had a table at the side which was perfect as it was relatively private and quiet. We all had the fixed price menu and the food was very tasty. Would recommend for lunch.

Amazing food, drinks and service. We did the bottomless champagne brunch inside first and our glasses were never empty! The food was delicious and the waiters were very attentive and smily, they spoke to us lots and we had a few laughs with them. Loved it and will definitely go back. We ended up finishing our brunch and moving to bar outside as we just didn’t want to leave! Nice and cosy sitting under the heaters watching the world go by for a few hours!

Large place pleasant surroundings but half empty at 5:30pm so lacking in ambience. Despite lack of many other diners our party of 3 were shown to a table for 2 and an extra place was laid on the side. Then another couple were seated right next to us. We chose dishes from a set menu of 2 courses for £19.50. They were all very tasty but tiny portions so we went away still hungry and feeling that the food was poor value. The wine was nothing to write home about. The service was efficient and friendly.

The food was great. I had a charcuterie starter that was delicious, followed by the Rib Eye steak which was cooked to perfection.

The service was great, apart from it taking a fairly long time to get someones attention for drinks etc. When the staff did arrive, they were fantastic. Would definitely go back.

We had the two-course set menu and the starters were fantastic, especially the soup. However the main was disappointing; I couldn’t have the lentils because I’m gluten intolerant so ended up with a piece of chicken and some chips. Good wine selection and waiting staff are very attentive.

Searcy’s at St Pancras is conveniently situated near 2 of the major London train stations, so it is a great place to have a meal when arriving into, or departing from, central London. The a la carte menu has excellent choices of starters, main and dessert, catering for diners who have allergies. There is a more limited selection on the 2/3 course set meal, with a good price deal. There is also a good bar area where one can have drinks before or after the meal. Good seating arrangements with adequate spacing between the tables. Would highly recommend the restaurant. We have been there many times and we have never been disappointed.

We previously had drinks at the bar outside and found it delightful, so booked a table for Valentine's at the brasserie. The restaurant is classy, with an art deco, mid-european ambiance. The service was extremely poor - despite not being busy, it felt like the staff resented our presence. The whole mood was unwelcoming, and we felt a little uncomfortable.

The food was good - I had guinea fowl and the presentation was great, good flavour, perhaps a little under seasoned for my taste but certainly of a high standard. Portions were okay, though by no means generous.

Value for money was pretty poor - over £90 for 2 courses each and a bottle of water.

Great atmosphere and service. Food was very good and tasty but the portions were very small and could have done with more food for the price. Misleading on the website about the option to have a reduced a la cart menu instead of the valentines menu. But on the day turns out it was the same one.

Lovely art deco restaurant and the food on the set menu is great. However, I agree with other reviewers that the service is somewhat lacking. We had to ask for items twice and lead times were slow. Attracting the attention of waiting staff required concerted effort.

Unfortunately -although the location and ambiente is really nice - this time the service let us down. It was very hard to get the attention of the waiters, our first drink reorder was forgotten - and one starter was missing (one out of three). The food overall was nice, and it‘s a great venue - but I am not sure I will come back, especially as we had a business partner with us. Another negative: The bathrooms were not in a clean state - lots of dirt in the corners of the floor, maybe I am overreacting, but somehow I would have xpected more. Such a shame... I had been to this brasserie a couple of times over the last years - maybe it is just my standards changed...

We had the Rib of beef on the bone 600g (for two) and would definitely recommend! .. and would definitely go back and try this again either for dinner or cocktails at the bar.
The food was cooked beautifully and very well presented.
The waiter was courteous, professional and respectfully fun.
Clearly this is a popular place with travellers who drop in for cocktails before their onward journey, however this didn't distract from the upmarket ambiance (and was great for people watching.
Also, we noticed that there were a number of private booths, which would be perfect for small groups with something special to celebrate.

Lovely spot, great menu but the service was awful. We waited 90 mins by the time we had received our second dish. Still lovely and good value but just sorting out the service would make it brilliant. It wasn't busy so no excuse there.

The staff were friendly, we had a mix of people having bottomless brunch, and they were on it in terms of topping up our Champagne glasses. The burgers were great, and the breakfast plates were good too, the roasts were not what you would probably expect for a traditional roast. There was lots of meat, but only two roast potatoes and a few green veggies, so some people might be disappointed. Desserts were good too.

Service was very poor even though the restaurant was only at about 50% capacity. It was very slow, staff were not attentive, even the manager was rather dismissive and somewhat uninterested.

The butternut squash in the starter was charred on the outside but uncooked and hard inside. I requested no onions in the replacement main course and was served a dish which had onions! We kept trying to get the attention of the waiters and manager to have our wine replenished, and eventually I had to walk over to the serving counter to get service!

When I spoke to the manager about our experience, he did not seem very interested in listening and was more keen just to take our plates away!

Overall, a rather unpleasant experience and felt let down by poor service and sub-standard food in a beautiful setting.
