The place is really beautifully done. The Ground Floor and first-floor terrace are quite unique.
But in terms of food, it needs to be refined to be up to the standards of the venue.

Very very good food. Everything we had was of very high quality and very tasty BUT it was very pricey for the quantity of food on each plate. Definitely recommended but either order strategically or be prepared to pay quite a lot.

We came for the lunch and had a really great time. The place is very stylish and beautiful. Our waiter was very nice and helpfull to explain the menu. He was also opendminded and took time to speak with us. Merci 😊 and the food is very good. Special mention for the fish served in the 2 or 3 courses lunch menu : delicious.

The food is very good but the service can be a bit inattentive. They have a DJ on Fridays and Saturday evening which makes the place very loud.....

There are a few reviews online suggesting the service in not great, I am the biggest critique of restaurant that deliver poor service, and quiet a few of my reviews are critical. The Bar and restaurant staff were all amazing, I am sure they hire people based on their ink (tatoos) too, all very arty and lovely! The food was good - not quiet Michelin but up there, the sharing portions were quiet small, but if you ordered enough it would be sufficient. The decor and the ambience of the hotel, bar restaurant - you cant get better!!!

I thought we'd try out Yopo for a Friday night joint birthday with my sister and our partners. WOW. Fabulous welcome, and within moments of being in the funkiest of bars, were shown to our table. The decor is lush, and although the music is loud, it creates just the right relaxed vibe. THE FOOD IS TO DIE FOR. That's all I'm saying, go try it for yourself and see.

I have booked this restaurant for 4 people, the atmosphere and decoration are amazing, food it is good, tasty and very well cooked but the portions are extremely small.
Service disappointing, we would never imagine being treated like this in this kind of restaurant, to be fair only was one member of the staff which I don't know her position. Hopefully, they fix this problem otherwise it would be a good experience.

I took our office team for a lunch here and it was probably the best work dining experience we have had. The room and the courtyard beside it are beautiful, rich with tropical plants and artworks which enrich the whole feel of the place. We eat from the set menu at £29 per head for there courses and at that price the food is truly exceptional (a few dishes have supplements that push the price up but only two from a list of about ten dishes so still plenty to choose from). I had a cooling and delicious ceviche to start and octopus served with mole sauces, amazing tiny blue tortillas and a tomatillo salsa which is my favourite thing I've eaten all year.

I've booked again for another business lunch in a couple of weeks and will be using this restaurant again in the future.

I had a lovely experience at YOPO. I went there for lunch and chose the set menu. All the dishes were delicious, the price was a bargain for the offer. I could have easily ordered another set menu but thought I was a tad too greedy so didn’t!
The surroundings are gorgeous and service very friendly and attentive.

Simply amazing. Probably the best in the London scene at the moment. Delicious food and great vibe. It feels a Michelin star experience with really affordable prices. The duck and the dumplings are a must try.

Service seemed a bit disconnected, we got asked the same thing multiple times by many different servers - however all were very friendly. Music was too loud for a restaurant (table was large so we were far apart and found it difficult to hear each other at times) but the food was great and it was good value for the price.

Everything perfect, in my opinion small portion and really pricey. £150 for 3 dishes 1 dessert to share and the cheapest bottle of wine, let's say in London you will consider to go back in there.
Outstanding Service and Amazing location

After eating in the restaurant we then decided to go for drinks in the bar, a very tall female member of staff was stood at the entrance to bar and decided to question us, we mentioned we had just eaten in the restaurant and there were only 2 of us (myself and my girlfriend). She made out as though she was doing us a favour when she let us through, it was just gone 10pm and we were not very impressed with her at all. Apart from her it was a great night and all the other staff were very courteous, I enjoyed celebrating my birthday there.

This is a hidden gem within Fitzrovia, so much so that you may walk past it on the street, like I did. Once you discover Serge though it's a stunning hotel with restaurant and terrace.

I don’t normally write reviews but I felt Serge deserved one, the food was divine. Not huge portions, so be prepared to dig deep for a number of pricey dishes but not wild money for central London. The wine was delicious too, although I would recommend they have an aperitif menu, but the classive aperitifs we ordered (dirty gin martini, classic champagne cocktail, old fashioned and champagne by the glass) were prepared and brought to our table in a timely fashion and hit the right note. The restaurant itself has a lovely atmosphere and the staff were the correct balance of attentive but not in your face. I’d definitely recommend.

We booked Serge for my husbands birthday dinner. We had not been before and were rather excited at the prospect, as it looked amazing and unusual. Well, we were not disappointed. We were treated like royalty from start to finish and by staff who obviously enjoy and take pride in what they are doing. The food was off the clock and all beautifully presented in an unfussy way. Whether it was artichoke salad, yellow fin tuna or divine scallops it was all spot on and always with a little interesting twist. The cocktails were tempting and the wine list made up of wines which obviously were chosen specifically to match the food. A lot of thought has gone into this place and we cannot wait for our next treat there.

Vegetarian options were good however some dishes like the cauliflower was bland. Presentation should be better too especially for the price you pay.
Some waiters were not aware about all the dishes so better training should be provided.
All waiters not aware about the fins on offer.

Food was pretty good - french/italian/spanish-based small plates. However, service is pretty terrible - lot of waitsaff, but little coordination e.g. multiple waiters ask you the same question. Also, beware if you try and go off piste and order a traditional three courses - they don’t get this and are liable to bring everything at once. Wine list value is pretty terrible - London is bad, but this restaurant really goes for high markups. Alcase cremant probably best value. Oh, and the ambiance feels really dated 80’s loadsofmoney
