Good food from a limited selection for the theatre express set menu. Loved the live music, very quirky and memorable meal

It may have been the fact it was a wednesday but it was very quiet, no ambiance and the service was poor. Go to the Farringdon one.

Fun night out with super friendly staff. Good for big groups. Piano were slightly on the Digital side which meant that the sound was not as authentic.

Absolutely amazing time and the performers are incredibly talented! The only slight criticism would be limited food options but the food was lovely and completely a non issue compared with the whole experience!

Hey AshleighF. Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your visit and concept. We are sorry you felt limited by the choice of food. We are a high volume venue and have designed 2 set menus and a bar food menu to cater for this. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Nicola

Music is good and fun, food was ok, service was poor!
I'd suggest skipping the brunch/dinner and just go for the music.

Also be aware - apparently they have a 'no show' policy. If one of your party members cancels on you and you don't tell them 48 hours before, they may try to charge you the money for their meal! We wasn't told this, we made the manager aware as soon as we got in the door and he said 'that's fine' then they tried to charge us for it. All was sorted in the end though.

Hi CW15. Thank you for taking the time to leave you feedback. We do take card details to secure all of our reservations and ask customers to give us 48 hours notice of cancellations. Our tables are in demand so we like to be able to offer these spaces to other guests. We don't charge on every occasion and it is at the discretion of the team so i'm glad this was sorted for you. If you would like to discuss in more detail please get in touch on hello@pianoworks-westend.bar. Nicola

Waiter was brilliant constantly checking on us and filling up our bottomless Prosecco glasses! The band were amazing and it felt like going to a live gig! The whole atmosphere and ambience was wonderful! It was my birthday and the staff even brought me out a cake which was so lovely of them! The food was delicious and we waited no time at all! Thankyou Studio 88 we will be back 😍

I booked studio 88 for a friends birthday and picked a 7.15 slot for dinner - It was a mistake! If you are keen to try this place I would recommend you book a bar table only and for a later time - around 9pm when there will be a better atmosphere. Main courses were average and starters disappointing so eat elsewhere first. Musicians were okay and versatile but you need drinks and a crowd to enjoy it!!

Great atmosphere in there, could have done with a better table as we couldn’t see all of the action. Service was a bit slow but it didn’t deter from the great atmosphere. Don’t expect to be blown away by the food however it is fine for what you pay for !

It’s fun and the musicians are great. Service was v friendly and fun. Food is v indifferent, cocktails terrible and wine list poor. I would go for music and drinks ( but not cocktails) - though on a Thursday it was fairly empty.
