They were quiet late replenishing salad and chips - we practically finished our food - when they finally brought more out.

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.

Disappointed with our table service, who in their right mind will pay £5per person knowing there's 12 of us to cut our own birthday cake. Really????
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.

There was also great Service which was well-timed and friendly. the food was amazing, i would definitely recommend steak and lobster to friends and family. especially a waiter julius who treated me and my friends amazingly

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.

I made a reservation last night for 2 people at 8:30pm for a birthday celebration. Booking online gave me a choice of event and venue, to which I chose this destination as it seemed the most appealing.
Whilst booking, I made it known it was for a birthday occasion. Online I was asked for any special requests; in which I asked for a birthday plate for pudding. I also reminded one of the waiters when we arrived.
Our waitress throughout the evening was very attentive and polite. However when our pudding arrived, there was a normal pudding from the menu with no birthday addition to it....

Overall I am very disappointed as the restaurant was not busy, therefore the table of 8 behind us who were overly loud and evidently drunk seemed more noticeable. It disrupted the evening and I would have maybe expected someone in the restaurant to ask them to respect other paying customers evening by quietening it down a little.

In addition, I requested a sauce for my steak that never arrived. (This was rectified as our lovely waitress took it off the bill)

The food was lovely however overall, left disappointed.

My son and I went there to have a lunch after visiting British Museum. The receptionist gave us very warm welcome, and served by a lovely waitress. The food was gorgeous - I had a surf & turf, which beef steak was very tender and lobster meat was juicy and scrumptious. We would definitely like to come back again.

I was very disappointed with the restaurant, it was a special occasion for my family and I. I am a frequent visitor to this restaurant yet this time I was appalled and embarrassed by the way the dinner went . The food wasn’t cooked correctly , drinks didn’t come we had to ask 3/4 times before it was received. Some people’s food didn’t come until the rest of the party had almost finished. The manager came didn’t really care didn’t check if there was anything else they could do. Truely disappointing.

The service was good, my food was nice but my ribeye steak had a lot of hard fat through it that could not be chewed. This meant roughly 30% of my steak was wasted. I did mention this to a supervisor and I had a drink deducted from the bill. Luckily as it was a Thursday it wasn’t busy which meant we were seen too swiftly.

If you are expected a steakhouse experience, this is not it. Service is not good. Employees are friendly but not attentive. Drink service was impossible. Food was fair. It is trying to be trendy steakhouse but in reality it is no more than fast casual fare. It was disappointing.

The worst service I’ve ever experienced in any restaurant!!
Took a long time to get seated.
Far to long to get served.
Ordered drinks that never turned up.
Supposed to get unlimited fries, however, nobody asked if we wanted anything else!
Not asked if everything was ok with the meal.
To top things a service charge of 12.5% is automatically added to the bill. I had this removed!

Terrible service, we called ahead to notify them that we would be running late. When we arrived we were informed that our table had been cancelled and the next table wouldn't be available for over an hour. We were offered a table in the bar area which we declined because of the numerous dirty tables which had bottles and plates from finished meals surrounding the bar area. The entire experience was very poor and I will not be returning.
