The food and service were excellent. I had the T-bone steak, medium rare, cooked just right. The side salad and unlimited fries were quite good as well. My wife loved her lobster, salad and fries. We also got drinks -- a wine and a gin & tonic and a postmeal coffee -- and the bill came to 89 pounds. Really not a bad deal considering the quality and quantity of the food. Our server was very nice, attentive and efficient. There is a nice hotel lounge right next door for drinks beforehand, and the restaurant is located very near a tube station. I definitely highly recommend this place.

The service was great and food was delicious but the main restaurant was being used for a private group so the atmosphere wasn’t the best.

Lobster was really fab but salads very poor. Pay more attention to veggie options: a bowl of spinach with four slices of apple and a few walnuts is not acceptable as a main course.

Had high expectations but was left underwhelmed by the average quality of the food. My steak was not succulent & tender enough. The paucity of my lobster portion left me yearning for more. Strangely enough the best part of my dinner was the eat as much as you like lemon salad!! Will sadly not be returning in a rush.

The dessert « Cheesecake Caramel » not light.. I think the dessert must be light after a tasty meal. And not choice of dessert, not dessert with fruits. That’s a shame...

We spotted this place en route to Covent Garden from our hotel and went there as an easy choice for the evening after a full day. Didn’t try the lobster, but can 100% recommend the fillet steak - perfectly cooked for each of us. Service superb - best I’ve experienced in many a restaurant. Unpretentious, unobtrusive, yet attentive. And very busy. If you get James as your waiter, lucky you. He knows his stuff!

I had the lobster and my son had steak. He enjoyed the steak a lot. My lobster was a little dry and next time I will have it steamed. I had to wait a little while for my lemon garlic sauce but overall the food was good.
When we sat we were offered water which turned out to be bottle at just shy of a fiver but there was fresh tap water availble as I saw it bought to other tables. There is a discretionary 12.5% added to the bill.
The restaurant was busy and therefore quite loud, next time i will come at a less crowded time of day.

We enjoyed our meal but the lobster was a little chewy - should have asked for steamed instead of grilled - and the ribeye steak was quite fatty and sinewy but tasty and cooked well. Could not fault the service and the ambience of the restaurant.

Comfortable, friendly, stylish but not overly stylised, excellent value for fairly simple food done very well. The Children's menu especially is outstanding value as are the free flowing fries and salad (which is delicious). Highly recommended as a pre-theatre dinner, or any time at all really!

Yes if the service was a bit better. Long wait to be asked if we would like food or a drink. Missing onion rings off of the order for 2 at the table Had read and coffees after the meal and had to ask for milk 5 times! By which time the teas and coffees were cold. Also had workmen doing something to the floor 3-4 meters from our table and staff moving tables and chairs around at the time. So whilst the food was very good the whole experience was ruined by poor table service and a lack of consideration for those eating by works taking place at the time of our meal

Found this to be one of the worst restaurant experiences I have had. Given the price - the steak was clearly fatty cheap cuts of meat. My partner ended up leaving most of hers and the lobster roll was a joke. Hardly any Pieces of lobster in there and covered in mayo. considering its pricing the value for meal was disappointing and to be frank quite cheeky. This meal was celebratory for a new job and we ending up leaving dissapointed. The seating was also poor with people constantly squeezing walking past the back of my partners chair. Would never eat here again and wish we had chosen somewhere else to celebrate.

The dining experience was incredible. The service was spot on and recommendations were perfectly suited for us. And the food was absolutely amazing. The crispy flat smoked beef tacos were heavenly and the steak in the surf n turf literally melted in your mouth. I highly recommend this restaurant for date nights or special occasions. I will definitely be back!

It's difficult to review this restaurant properly because we didn't actually get to eat here! My husband and I were in town for the weekend and, because we don't know London that well, my daughter booked Steak & Lobster for us. We were going to see a musical, so she booked a table for 10.30pm (after the show). We arrived at the restaurant at around 10.20pm, were seated at our table and given menus. When the wait staff came over to take our drinks order, they told us that the kitchen closed at 10.30pm so we had to order straight away. We hadn't even had time to look at the starters or mains. I asked them why they had a table available at 10.30pm if they stopped serving food then. The wait staff were really nice, but it was very frustrating. We ended up walking around London, trying to find somewhere else to eat. This wouldn't have been a problem had we known our way around, it wasn't so late and we weren't completely starving. My top tip would be don't offer tables when you can't actually serve food! Such a shame as the reviews were good and we were looking forward to eating here.

I've never heard so much bs after spending £400 a mediocre meal.

Vibe was 80s yuppie power wag wannabe. Steak was decent, lobster was good standard. Their ‘famous’ mason jar full of chocolate etc had no honeycomb and far too much fudge, and serving it in a jar made it a bit of a faff to get at but I guess the reasoning here is that if you’re happy to mess about getting edible bits out of a lobster you’re alright with a pudding in a wrong vessel. Service was good, Stella our waitress was kind and polite.

The food was great, although the steak could benefit from a garlic butter or some type of seasoning on it. Never got asked if I’d like a steak sauce to accompany my steak only minor but I’d forgotten to order it and you nearly are always asked that question. Would be great to get a few more cocktails on the drinks menu also. Definitely will be returning though next time for the lobster!

I treated my dad to this restaurant as be loves sea food. I bought him the lobster and i bought the steak. My dad really enjoyed the lobster as it tasted really good and was prepared well, although he thought the portion could have been larger for the price. I really enjoyed my steak and it was done medium well. I also agree that the portion could have been larger especially how you are entitled to an unlimited amount of fries throughout the meal.

Staff was really nice and really friendly. They made us feel welcome and catered too. We would come back one day for sure. Definitely recommend to friends and family.

The steaks were great we were a party of 6 people celebrating my wife’s 50th birthday the only
negative which seems to be the norm in a lot of places now was the service charge added the the bill and I think £25 is a little excessive, I know you don’t have to pay but you just feel obliged and I prefer to leave the tip based on the service received and knowing the people who serve you get the money.

I went here for my birthday on Saturday 2nd March. I was with 4 others. We ordered drinks and was waiting over 30 mins. We then got our drinks & ordered our starters & mains which we asked to come together. Our mains came 1 hour later with only 2 of our starters. Two of my party finished their mains before their starters even came, we asked our waitress to see where they were and she informed us that they were coming. When they came they didn’t look nice they were burnt and looked raw. One of my party sent hers back and the other two didn’t eat them. Our waitress noticed and removed all 3 from the bill kindly. We then ordered 2 lemonades only 1 came and we waited 30 mins for the other lemonade. My main was cold and over cooked. I ordered ‘bring it together’. My steak was over cooked I ordered medium/ well & it was extremely well done. My lobster was dry and cold to the point where the garlic buttter dried out and I had to order more from the waitress. I didn’t want to send the food back because we was all so hungry. The cocktails were lovely though. I am extremely disappointed. I contacted the restaurant and I’ve had no reply.

Pretty awful experience. The service here is the worst service I’ve ever experienced. Drinks took half an hour to come and the waiter forgot almost everything we asked for. If you want nicer food and much better service, go to Burger & Lobster!
