Granary Square Brasserie, a new restaurant brand from the team behind the Ivy Collection.

The brasserie buzz through breakfast, morning coffee, lunch and cream teas in the afternoon. Throughout the day the lounge area will be perfect to relax with a drink or for informal meetings with luxurious vintage leather chairs and low brass tables. As the sun sets and we get ready for dinner, the DJ set will begin, and cocktails will flow.

The restaurant is beautiful with cut glass pendant lights, banquettes upholstered in silk and velvet and exotic kilim rugs. The striking central bar, located in the heart of the room, is perfect to survey the scene and enjoy an aperitif cocktail.

    Such a shame that during the entire experience we were repeated reminded we only had the table for 2 hours and were made to feel like we needed to hurry up and leave.

    Some of the food was amazing 2 of our party had the duck curry which tasted amazing but was full of inedible grizzly duck. The service was poor to average. Was a real shame as it was supposed to be a special lunch

    A lovely place with a special atmosphere. Charming and attentive service. The dish I ordered didn’t “work” as well as others I’ve had here in past but it’s still a place I will return to for a special-feeling meal. Location is fantastic and outdoor dining area lovely - important in these times.

    I’ve been to this restaurant before for lunch and was impressed with the food and service and as such decided to return. However my second visit for dinner was a real let down. We had 4 different waiters throughout dinner who clearly were not communicating with each other, the food was served lukewarm with key parts of the dishes missing. Once we had finished our meal we had to wait 20 minutes before we could get the attention of someone to request the bill. Really let down by the second experience, it’s a shame.

    We had dinner outside. There were heaters but a little cold so dress up warmly. The waiters were so attentive. The food was amazing and there is a separate vegetarian menu and the ambience was lovely. I would defo recommend eating here to anyone. A little bit of sophistication but still the bistro vibe.

    The food was amazing, can’t complain! However, we were not happy with the service at all. We arrived at our table around 5.20pm and at 6.45pm we were told we had to give the table back at 7pm as the next guests had arrived. We had only just finished our starters and up to this prompt we were not told about the table needed at 7pm. We were told to move to the bar but we had a lady with us who was heavily pregnant and didn’t want to be around too many people due to COVID-19 virus. The service was not great at all and we all left with a sour taste of the restaurant.

    Food was good, but not excellent when considering the prices versus other places in the same bracket. Service was very poor. We didn't have a consistent waiter/waitress serving us, and aside from that no one ever checked on us to ask if we wanted more drinks, if food was good, to ask if we wanted dessert, etc. The Christmassy decoration is what makes the restaurant special, and the chocolate bomb dessert was excellent but aside from that wouldn't recommend visiting if you're looking for good service and great food. We didn't pay the full discretionary service charge, but we did pay part and when we didn't pay the full amount the waiter was over quite quickly (much faster than any other part of the evening when we had to struggle to get anyone's eye to be served!) and said we still needed to pay £11.54. Didn't ask what they could have done better, or for feedback, just said we owed money.

    So the booking was at 1.30 at the door I stood in front of the lady for 5 mins she didn’t acknowledge me once so I spoke to her , At the table we ordered our starter came before our drinks !! Then a waiter cleared the plates and one of us was still eating! It felt like a bit of a rush for them to get us out! The wait staff also leaning across to get things when people where eating.I was expecting a lot better service than this very disappointed.

    Service initially (as usual) excellent but then our waiter “lost us” just before the pudding course - after taking our order - so we had to leave for next appointment since no food arrived for 20+ minutes. Normally all is great here as we’re regulars, so maybe staffing problems at the moment?

    The food was alright, but my friend found a hair in her dish. I had to ask multiple times to bring me the tea I ordered the first thing when arrived. The tea was brought only when I asked for the bill an hour and a half later. Before that I asked not to include the tea in the bill and immediately it appeared on the table. Had to remind about five times about the bill. Despite many free tables the management sat all the guests in one area very close to each other. Not the best idea during the pandemic.

    It is unfair of me to judge GSB for lunch on the coldest day of the year so far (-1C)! We were seated outside for covid fears. The heaters were not very effective which is the main issue. Then again it was very cold. Service was attentive and excellent. Food was very good. I will go again but avoid outdoor seating in winter!

    We went for my boyfriends birthday, the booking was at 20:30 we got seated at 20:50 is fine is Saturday and busy , but we asked to have a drink at the bar the bar apparently was full so we had a drink outside and we let the receptionist know that in case there is an empty space at the bar for us to move , we had to check ourselves if the bar was empty and to move there anyway after a few minutes we got our table. The table was in the end of the restaurant close to the toilets and a breeze was coming from there so disappointed I asked from the floor manager (I guess) it was a gent with a suit he immediately tried to find us a better table and he moved us ! Our waitress was very nice the food was good but we didn’t get anything special for my birthday boy !! I will go back but definitely not on a Saturday!

    Nice looking restaurant and the food was good, would definitely go again. Only down side was fact that they set times you can have table (4 persons 1 hr 45 mins) which wasn't a problem as we only had 2 courses. If you have 3 courses or want to catch up with friends in more leisurely timings then this is tight.

    The Granary Square Brasserie is in a fabulous location in the new regenerated Granary Square/Coal Drops Yard area of King's Cross within a few minutes walk of King's Cross and St Pancras Stations and next to the Regent's Canal. The ambience and food was up to the usual high standards of the Ivy restaurant group. A very enjoyable meal shared with friends meeting together for the first time since Covid lockdown. So an absolute delight. We shared one of my favourites for starters (Zucchini Fritti) and Salt & Pepper Squid and I followed with the Aromatic Duck Curry and Tiramisu. All delicious!
