Not my idea of a Michelin- starred restaurant. Food was good but not great, tables too close, uncomfortable wood chairs, and so noisy you have to shout. No tablecloths, wait staff in jeans, ugly black stoneware plates, food piled on with no finesse. Two forks and knives would be my rating.
Excellent tasting menu options, incredible dessert and great service - thank you for a lovely anniversary!
Great food with quality ingredients. Really pleasant atmosphere, spacious and helpful staff (I had to ask for the meaning of several words on the menu..)
Small restaurant, but nice vibe.
Started poorly, as they didn’t have our booking even though we’d had a text confirmation from them! Anyway, they found us a table.
Service was good and friendly, and the staff had good knowledge and recommended nice wines.
Loved the small tapas/sharing plates format.
Food was the star and the risotto and crispy rabbit were exceptional. Only complaint was the Turbot was on the bone and we weren’t warned. Taste Tatin was also good.
Will definitely return!
This French-inspired restaurant had it all. Central location in London, very stylish but also cosy interior. Food was excellent and the cuisine inventive but still classic. Meals can be shared among friends, but works also for those who want to order their own selection. Service was friendly and attentive.
It was a chance find when planning a get-together with a friend near work and it paid off. The quality of the food and service would be hard to beat. I will need to go back and try the menu options we did not order this time around.
I could go on and on about The Ninth all day as I do not think I will better this dining experience this year! I have given this restaurant top marks on everything as the food the service and everything else you would expect was delivered. The most satisfying and flavorable meal I have ever experienced. Many thanks The Ninth, I look forward to my next visit.
Delicious food and the prices reflect that!
Very tasty food
Absolutely brilliant in every regard.
Attentive, pleasant service.
Food a different level, in the top few I've ever had.
Above average in price, but tremendous value for how good it is.
Excellent wine choices to compliment the food.
Interesting flavour with great presentation along with impeccable service.
Good but overpriced restaurant!!!!!!!'nnnnnnnnnnnmnn
Excellent as always
Second time I've dined at The Ninth and it was as good as the first. Exceptional cooking and food. Service was also impreccable. The pain perdu is to die for. I would come back just for that.
We did a lot of research on restaurants in London for our weeklong vacation but hands down The Ninth was the best meal that we had the entire trip. The food is superbly prepared, the meal was paced very well, and the wait staff was knowledge and courteous. I feel like we could come back and order all different dishes and still be blown away by the quality of the food.
Excellent veg-heavy comforting shared dishes in a luxe bistro setting
Amazing menu - fresh, flavoursome, delicious food. Definitely a great place to bring a friend who is a foodie. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and good wine list to boot.
Beautiful honest food, banging flavour, generous portions and great service - Heavenly!
Food was Excellent .
Service was Excellent. Waitress was very friendly and informative. She made excellent recommendations.
Price was reasonable for the quality of food.
Location was nice
Ambiance was very nice.
I went there with my friends and enjoyed the dinner very much. We shared 7-8 differnt dishes with three of us and everything were tasty. Ambient of the location was fantactic.
I have been to The Ninth a few times and food was always great. Good vibe and friendly staffs at the restaurant. Lunch menu is a very good deal, £19/2dishes and £25/3dishes. The seabass carpaccio and duck breast are my favorite. Don't forget to save room for their French toast. It was heavenly!!
Love the food, portions a bit small but delicious.
great mix of things
This was an excellent dining experience in a relaxed and stylish environment. We were in celebration mood and so I'm really pleased to say that my party was thrilled with their experience (which came off the back of a recommendation from a friend).
Some really nice dishes and good service. They did do that annoying constant water filling however.
The food was really delicious especially the Scallops with Pumpkin Risotto. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent, food interesting and delicious. Staff lovely. Highly recommended
Fantastic, we had the lunch 2 set lunch deal and couldn't be happier. The duck was superb, and plentiful. We were full after it and was 19£ per person as a set meal, great value as a Michelin 1 star.
Outstanding food!! Excellent service - can't wait to be back!
Excellent food and good service. The only drawback is a rather limited menu and the acoustics. Although the restaurant was not particularly busy it was very noisy and so made relaxed dinning difficult
Amazing food, great value with BYO. Highly recommend the mackerel starter and sea bass carpaccio!
My husband and I enjoyed the Ninth experience very much. Food was really good and it was definitely value for money! Because the concept of the restaurant and its atmosphere are very casual, I didn't necessarily think it was one star quality - not to mention the service. Service is ok, but the waiter was not passionate at all when explaining food and he talk so fast and most of the time we couldn't understand him. On our way home, from upstairs to leaving the door, no service staff greeted us nor said thank you - I think that's quite outrageous.
So overall, food was one Michelin star quality but not the rest. If price goes up from the current level, I do not think I'll go back, but if it remains, I will go back for a taste.
The Ninth is an outstanding new restaurant, with excellent food at very reasonable prices. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday on the strength of critic reviews and we were not disappointed.
Definately no.1 on my London list! Beef cheeks are second to none! Amazing place, nice staff - can't recommend more! Definately nicer than the all old fashioned white cloth Michelin restaurants!
The food was really nice and the service was impeccable.
The concept was confusing - sharing concept was not clear, how large the portions were or whether they were suitable for sharing - staff were not able to explain this. Therefore it was difficult to know how much food to order.
Amazing food! Different to other restaurants in London and lots of interesting choice. One of the best meals I have had for a long time.
Fantastic food, excellent service.
Get a table downstairs or in the main room upstairs. The acoustics in the side room upstairs mean that it is difficult to hear anything above others' conversations.
Exquisite food - every dish hit the mark. Great service too. It is great value for money as normally you would pay much more for quality food like this.
Great romantic restaurant, lovely ambience, wonderfully varied dishes to share
