Service and decor were the only thing nice about Zobler. Food was really disappointing: no taste, not a nice presentation and it has nothing of an American deli!

I was disappointed that I booked a table two weeks' in advance but my friend and I were sat at the bar. We both had the delicious steak frites but eating a rib eye with a non-steak knife while sat on a swivel seat isn't ideal! Staff were unattentive - we had to ask to order, then they didn't check if our food was ok, I had to ask for extra bernaise as I was given a smaller pot than my friend - the extra bernaise never arrived so had to eat my steak without... they were out of ice-cream so couldn't order the sundae but it was a blessing in disguise because the carrot cake is AMAZING and such a generous portion. Overall, great food but let down by service (which is annoying when they add it on to your bill).

Food and service were great. The only criticism is that several items, on a small menu, were not available including vanilla ice cream! When suggested by us, the ice cream was borrowed from another restaurant in this vast hotel.

Excellent food at a reasonable price in lively surroundings. Let down only by the staff being more interested in chatting than returning to the table to take payment. When approached and asked if we could settle the bill, gave out a large helping of attitude.

One of my favourite places but second time experienced poor service, After asking twice still didn’t receive a side untill we had to get up to find a waiter for the third time, he then placed it on the table as we was finishing our meal. Still was charged for the side. Lack of urgency.

Booked Zoblers Friday afternoon for Friday night, as we were spending the weekend in London with friends.
Didn’t really know what to expect as only had it recommended that day, but what a treat. The whole atmosphere was fanstastic and the food was lovely.
The staff were friendly and attentative to add to the experience.
Would 100% recommend the whole of The Ned and will be going back.

Good food, good selection on offer, food came in good time, they were staffed sufficiently. Only frustrating thing that I had booked a table for 13.30 but we didn't actually get seated until 13.45 as there was no table available.

Service was extremely slow. We were a party of 04 ordering sandwiches and bagels and 03 of the meals came together after 35 minutes wait (for sandwiches and bagels) but we had to wait a further 10 minutes for the 4th meal .
The waitress was very friendly and lovely though, and the place is beautiful. If you have plenty of time to spare, it is a wonderful place. If you are in a hurry or need to eat within 01h, then stay clear.

The chicken wings I had were horrible, I did't end up eating much of it. Still at the Ned, love there cocktails, not ideal for a person intending to drink so was sensible enough to (intend to) eat beforehand.

Best,

The food came out cold it was two breakfasts they took it back reheated it. They had scraped off the ketchup but the eggs were now hard and the bite of sausage I had taken so I knew it was definitely the same. They apologised and I didn’t have to pay for the meal. However I was late for an appointment so had to leave. Extremely disgusting

Deli Styled food with a touch of sophistication. Food simple but nicely presented and a decent size. Staff always friendly and attentive. As at the rear of the building I find it a little less chaotic than the other restaurants in the centre which are a corridor to passing noise and people traffic. Still a brilliant venue to dine in.

Very disappointing after going to many Jewish New York delis. The latkes were terrible as was the tiny bits of pastrami which were dry.

Juices were not freshly squeezed except for the orange/carrot which ended up being orange only as they told me after they didn’t have carrot but not at the time I ordered it.

Booked the Ned for a business meeting. It was 28th August and first time I’ve seen the Ned so empty. The atmosphere was still top-class, great music as always!
Real shame about the food at Zoblers. They have a great selection of dishes and surprisingly well priced for this kind of venue, however the food was really poor. We ordered two classic sandwiches and a hot dog. Neither of us could eat the sandwiches properly as they were covered in sauce and the bread was too thick to hold the sandwich properly.
All of us left the meal half eaten and the side dish was really over cooked.
All in all we love the Ned, and the atmosphere thankfully made up for the poor quality of food. It’s unlikely I’ll book Zoblers again.

Came here with our daughter and her grandparents to have pancakes, maple syrup and bacon as we had promised her as on a recent visit to New York it was something we didn't do. It didn't disappoint it was good fun and great experience for her. My husband and I had been one evening to have dinner in one of other restuarants and was looking forward to returning.

Popped in for dinner to catch up with my best mate - thinking it would be like a slightly more upscale ‘Jackson & Rye’ i.e very good quality, hearty, American food in lovely surrounds... but sadly the food was average at best and the dining experience fell way below our (not very high) expectations.

I would definitely recommend other restaurants in The Ned... whilst avidly avoiding this place again.

Top marks for ambiance - wonderfully impressive conversion from Bank HQ to restaurant(s). Excellent service - friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Mixed food quality. Traditional chopped liver satisfactory, superb fries, but, regrettably, appalling pastrami - overcooked and tasteless.
