The Gate Marylebone
I have been to Islington and Hammersmith many times but this was the first time at Marylebone. Service was ok. Ambience ok .....always felt more welcomed at the other two. This was a bit clinical, considering it was empty.
The food however, was excellent as always
Top notch vegetarian and vegan dishes in a simple, charming space and excellent service.
A good restaurant especially in the vegetarian space. Enjoyed the food, but I do think it was on the expensive side (but that could be my snobbery with regards to veggie food).
Service was disjointed. They couldn't find my booking but squeezed us in. Service was friendly but unfocused. We sat down 10 minutes before the couple next to us and despite being ready to order, their order was taken before ours which irked me. Funnily our food came out before theirs so I shouldn't really complain.
I would go again with vegetarian friends but not sure they did enough for me to make me go back as repeat customer. In saying that - I would recommend a visit for the food alone.
Delightful Vegan food, lovely wine and a very pleasant evening.
Excellent food at very competitive prices. Service also faultless.
Hi Tony, We're glad to hear that you enjoy our food and service :) We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
I had been to The gate in Hammersmith years ago but was really impressed by how tasty the food was at The Gate Marylebone (not a vegetarian). Every dish was full of flavour and excellent. We will visit again.
The service wasn't great. We ordered the chunky chips and it arrived at the same time as our dessert. Also we were put at the small table by the toilets so not the best either.
Hi, Thank you for your review. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your food but we're sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with the service that you received. I hope you can join us in the near future so we can redeem ourselves in your opinion.
Good menu. Very good tastes and presentation. Good value and should maintain at it that.
Could introduce a few new dishes so that the regular person has something new to try. Perhaps specials for the week/month.
Marylebone staff are well informed on the food and help in making the right decisions.
Hi, Thank you for your lovely feedback. We change our menus seasonally and we often have special tasting menus, so please keep a look out on our website/social networking for our new menu. We hope you are able to join us in the near future :)
the food at the Gate is just so good. Great spot for a getaway from the office lunch as it's all served in good time and the staff are very attentive.
Hi, Thank you for such wonderful feed back. I hope you are able to join us in the near future.
Exceptionally creative and tasty food. The Aubergine Schnitzel was exceptional.
Food was deliciously fresh, took a while to get to the table but we thought it was because the food was not pre-prepared, including the gorgeous honey and thyme sponge pudding - not a microwave in sight! Flavours were great and portion sizes very generous. We ordered 2 sides between 3 of us and couldn't finish them.
Service was pleasant enough - I tend to mark hard here - it was the note of insincerity that jarred with me.
Will definitely be back to try all the things I wanted to order.
Good vegetarian food. Soup was just okay. Tortilla and pad Thai everyone loved
Had a great anniversary at The Gate Marylebone on Christmas Eve. A fantastic meal with great wine and service to match. A special shout out to our waiter in particular who made our anniversary very memorable.
food was nice when we eventually got it, the food was luke warm and our sides came out half way into eating our mains when they should be brought out together. they forgot to bring our wine out, one waiter did apologise and said 2 glasses were on the house but the wine he served us was disgusting and when we told the manager we didnt want to pay the discretionary 12.5% service charge he asked why but didnt apologise, just shrugged and held his hands open and said ok
Poor. Everything is pre-prepared and was given the wrong menu. Small portions.
really good vegetarian and vegan restaurant. Inventive dishes. Did we miss the meat? Not at all!
Excellent vegan food.
I made a late booking via Open Table, about two hours before. When we got to the restaurant we were told that our booking did not exist. I understand these things happen but the staff seemed unwilling to help. We were eventually seated and handed some menus. It took a while to have our orders taken but a lady eventually came to serve us. Ten minutes after she took our order, she came back in a fluster and very abruptly told us she would need us to repeat our order again. Not a word of apology and you could almost hear her eyes roll despite it not being our mistake. The food was alright though the rotolo was very cold inside (like it had been taken out of the fridge—not sure if it was meant to be this way) but we could not be bothered sending it back at this point. It wasn’t a horrible experience but I’m certainly not in a hurry to return.
Food is always delicious and creative and staff well intentioned (if a little slow at times).
Food is fresh but the salad we ordered lacked seasoning and flavor. My friends like the aubergine miso but there aren't many options that are not tofu based.
Food was fantastic but the service was a little slow and my reservation wasn’t sent through so were sat down in the basement.
To be honest,i was disappointed. The gate in Hammersmith was always indeed of my favourite restaurants in London even though i am not a vegetarian ( although i have not visited for several years as i moved away) so i was looking forward to the one in Marylebone. I thought the menu was very non inventive and standard, good quality but nothing special. Service was sporadic and a bit chaotic.
Lovely evening. Great menu, polite staff, excellent wine and atmosphere.
Anniversary dinner, didn’t have a table ready, ordered bread and olives but starters came first. Asked for olives and bread afterwards as olives came after starters, was questioned why I asked for a bottle instead of a glass of wine. Is hat because I’m wearing Alexander McQueen suit and have tattoos and I’m an influencer?
The main course and desert were excellent but the first course let the whole meal down. The crispy marinated tofu tasted neither crispy nor marinated and instead had the consistency and taste of a potato croquette. Sadly disappointing.
Love the food at The Gate - always so delicious and well presented.
Nice atmosphere and very friendly staff too.
Lovely vegetarian food that a meat eater would enjoy
Food very average. Service slow
50 minutes to get 2 bowls of children’s pasta and 2 main for adults!!!
My daughter is vegan so she was very happy with the food. My only criticism is that £60 for a two-course lunch for two with one drink seems a little steep.
Great place - friendly service, lovely food. I also much preferred this venue to The Gate in Angel which I have found to be rather unfriendly whenever I’ve been and now avoid. I would recommend and go back to The Gate Marylebone anytime!
The most delicious vegan desserts. Brilliant menu with lots of gluten free options aswell.
This will be my new regular restaurant to take my friends to.
Disapointed that they only offer a set menue for lunch. With 6 of us it lacked variety, otherwise, a wonderful experience.
As ever, The Gate offers an inventive menu which is beautifully presented. It is also surprisingly filling.
Innovative tasty dishes and attractive comfortable restaurant
Excellent food but disappointing service (30 min wait for main course & no checking as to whether we would like to order further drinks).
I was looking for a Vegan restaurant that looked like a regular (non wooden bench/hippy) place with great food and a bar, for a birthday treat for a family member. This was perfect. It has a lovely ambiance. One of my carnivorous group at the first mouthful of the Miso Glazed Aubergine looked up and said "wow! this is really nice"..and he wasn't wrong. The Red Thai Curry was gorgeous too. We were too full to sample the dessert menu. Will have to be next time. It's a really great place. I highly recommend.
Both me and my girlfriend has several digestion problems throughout the night. It is extremely likely that our malaise was caused by the food at the restaurant.
I've been a Gate fan for 25 years [ over its 3 locations and even the Belsize Park one that closed ] its always been in my view the best restaurant in London, I've spent birthdays, weddings and many other occasions there, we visited last Saturday and i have to say it was very poor, first of all the menu which is small no problem there but with two Thai dishes and two raw salads [ it was 2 degrees outside and why two Thai dishes ] i ended up with the Mexican option not something i would of picked but with the knowledge that these guys work magic in the taste dept. well they certainly didn't this time first dish in 25 years that was just ok my partner said the same about her dish i have to say the starter we shared was the same just lacked taste ...over the years The Gate has always amazed me taste wise and service wise ...we spent £55 hard earned money on a average meal. we left very deflated
Yummy & Delicious - well worth a visit. The accoustics were a little clattery for me, but otherwise very good.
