    I really love the decor of the place and the ambience feels great. That said, there were way to many tables and people that need servicing and definitely not enough staff. We booked a table for 7:45, we had to wait 25 min before we could get our table. We had to wait another 30 min for our order to be taken. We were hoping to have another drink but had to wait a long time. In the end, decided to go to the front desk and pay the bill as we couldn't get anyones attention. Again, if service could be faster and not having to spend so long having to order either drinks or food

    Sadly having been a fan of The Ivy Garden Covent Garden we were recommended to The Granary as it is close to St Pancras we have visited before without any problems but last nights visit wasn’t good. I would say the staff are under pressure and good not deliver a good service.

    For the first time in visiting your restaurant, we were very disappointed with the level of service and attention. With an abundance of staff available we were left waiting for food and wine to be served and when requested more than once was served very reluctantly We do find pleasure in informing you of this, but hope you can rectify this for the future

    I love the Granary Brasserie and have eaten/drunk her numerous times. Sadly yesterday it didn’t deliver. Reception was chaotic, service at the table wasn’t particularly attentive and things like asking for vinegar for the fish & chips took 10 minutes to arrive. Plates weren’t cleared. Nobody seemed to want to take a second drinks order. You get the idea… Usually fabulous. Yesterday was just average.

    Couldn't fault the food or the ambience. However.......we had booked and when we arrived the receptionist didn't listen when I informed her of this We were told in no uncertain terms that the kitchen was about to close. I again told her that we had booked and to be fair there was then an apology and we were ushered in. However not a good start to the evening. Other negatives were the sulky attitude of our waitress. And the cheese platter took almost half an hour and a reminder before it arrived. Such a pity that these marred what would otherwise have been a very enjoyable evening.

    Our booking was for 8.15pm. After a lot of persuasion and reminders we were eventually seated at just after 9pm. No-one then came to ask us for drinks or take our order till we complained at 9.30pm. They then forgot to serve our drinks and then after we pointed this out to them, they served the wrong drinks! When we ordered our dessert, they again forgot about it. No dessert came till we again pointed this out after a long wait. The food was excellent, the ambience and decor was superb. The service was appalling to say the least! I thought they might reduce the bill, in compensation, but no they did not think of doing that at all. The bill also had a service charge amount added for a service that was very disappointing. We nevertheless paid the whole amount. We had been to this restaurant about 4 weeks ago and everything was excellent then. It was very obvious the restaurant was very short-staffed. They do need to address that.

    Food was delicious but service was hit and miss. Three members of staff asked us for our order within the first 5 minutes of arriving and before we'd even picked up the menus. Once food was ordered they didn't come back even to fill wine glasses. I had to go in search of our wine to refill glasses as left in a cooler away from the table. Getting the bill took a long time too.

    We were very disappointed with where we were seated. Last table in the restaurant next to toilets and service area. We had pre booked with open table and would have hoed to be placed central in the restaurant. Not as outcasts on the worst table in the restaurant.

    I’ve been to most of the Ivy branches, and this has to be the worst one. Service was very slow. Had to ask for a glass of water 3 times. The food was ok however the fish and chips was quite soggy which was probably due to lots of excess water under my mushy peas pot. My partner and I were also squished into a tiny corner. I won’t be returning to this Ivy unfortunately.

    I booked the granary square brassiere because of trip advisor’s 10 best gluten-free restaurants near kings cross. My granddaughter is coeliac so it was vital to book somewhere to ensure she could have a decent meal. I had previously spoken to the restaurant who assured me that they had gluten-free options. When we arrived, the children’s menus contained nothing that was gluten free at all. The only option available was a chicken piece with jasmine rice. No gluten-free options on any meals. The service was dire with incorrect drinks arriving after being spilled all over the bar. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians came to mind with bad communication between the five different waiting staff coming to the table. Only good thing was the fountains outside in the square. 😞

    What started as a lovely brunch quickly deteriorated after a staff change and we were left in limbo. Actually had to go to the front to find a manager to help get our bill only to have a server, who she brought over, tell us it wasn’t their section. Finally a new waiter appeared and had no idea how bad things had been. He apologized but too little too late. There are so many options in this area so go somewhere else.

    Great food, lovely bar staff. However it took a long time for our order to be taken and we sat for at least 20 mins after our whole table had arrived to have our drinks and food order taken. The waiter was kind nonetheless. However we felt very rushed at the end when we were given a dessert menu, but we asked for more drinks instead. Then when the drinks order was placed we were then told that they would need our table back immediately as there was a reservation. Would this have happened if we had ordered a dessert too? It was a shame as it did tarnish the experience.

    Fantastic stylish spot to grab an upscale dinner without anything feeling too stuffy or old fashioned. Decor is really amazing - industrial meets 50's glam meets vintage parlour. The service was exceptional and the food was equally as good. We had the duck liver pate and tempura prawns to start, followed by the lobster linguine and monkfish curry. Incredible flavours. My parents just retired and I had noted that in the booking and they brought over a salted caramel profiterole with strawberries as a surprise - really nice touch which made a great evening all the more special.

    Loved our evening here. Friendly service but a little slow (which we expected, it was a busy evening and wasn't a problem for us as we weren't in a rush). Food was exceptional and great drinks selection. They also accommodated a last minute request to dine outside and the atmosphere, in the sunshine, was special. I'll definitely be returning!

    The ambience is great at the Granary Square Brasserie. Apart from the glass shards which flew in our direction when one of the staff dropped a glass, but it made a nice noise. It would have been good to sweep up the glass shards that remained on the floor beside us but we couldn’t get the server’s attention as they were focused on the main pile of glass. I love the range of vegetarian and vegan items and want to come back soon to try some of the other options. Initially, it would have been appreciated to have some cold water for the table without having to flag down a server and ask for it, particularly as it was a hot day. Aside from those issues, service was good and we never felt rushed. I liked that the food took time to appear as it meant my guest and I had plenty of time to chat. The food itself had some interesting flavours and textures that aren’t found in other restaurants. It is commendable that the restaurant celebrates this creativity and is unafraid to stand out. The food that I did have, however, I wouldn’t want to have again.
