Beautiful building, tasty brunch.

A great selection of breakfast options. The refillable filter coffee is also really good. Service is friendly but not speedy.

So noisy that couldn’t converse with my friends
As reported previously, matzoh ball soup needs some vermicelli

I’ve enjoyed the Zoblers many many times and keep coming back for what I believe is the best burger in London.

Poor lobster bun which seemed to be mainly cucumber and mayonnaise and very little lobster.

We went to Zobler's for my husband's birthday breakfast. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. The avocado bagel may sound like a bit of a basic option, but it was super tasty and I really enjoyed it. It was much more luxurious than a bagel I'd make at home! My husband said his full English, with a Jewish twist, was superb. We then had blueberry pancakes, which arrived at our table with a birthday candle in and the lovely waiter sang happy birthday to my husband. I'd made a note on the booking that it was his birthday and could they write it on a plate or something, so the candle and the song was a really sweet touch! The pancakes themselves were so fluffy and light and I'd definitely go back for more. An extremely stylish venue with a laid back vibe. I can't wait to go again.

Did the bottomless brunch at Zoblers - the original lady that served us was incredibly helpful & helped me decorate the table for my friends birthday!
The food was okay - although mine was pretty cold when it arrived, which was a bit disappointing.

The main disappointment was the bottomless aspect - we had to wait quite a while to get our drinks topped up, often with us having to try & catch the eye of a member of staff to do it! The quality of the Mimosas also varied loads - we actually saw the bar man just pouring orange juice into the jug at one stage, to top up a tiny remainder of Mimosa, which was a little upsetting, compared to other bottomless brunches I've been to.

I would come to The Ned again - but wouldn't visit Zoblers restaurant again & wouldn't do the bottomless brunch option.

Great ambiance, we were seated straight away as soon as we got there. Fairly busy as expected for Friday lunch, but that means service was slower than usual and we had to grab the waiters attention a few times to get water and the bill and then to finally pay. Food were good, slightly more expensive than most places (even for City of London) but that’s almost expected in such 5-star hotel in the city.

I came here with my boyfriend as we decided to take our sisters out for a nice meal, we thought bottomless brunch would be a good idea, especially at the Ned as we heard good things about it. There were 5 of us altogether and the front of house put us on a table for 4 and put a chair on the end so it was very cramped. The service was very poor, waiters were not very attentive, this was a problem as we kept having to waive at the waiters in order to take our orders and top up our mimosas. When we finally ordered, the waiters kept bringing wrong orders to our table. The food was pretty decent, but not worth the £270 we paid.

I reserved a table online having eaten at the Ned twice befoe and had a pleasant experience.

When we got there we were greeted by a busy person who told us abruptly we need to wait for a table.

Sortly after we were unceremoniously ushered to our seating area. The staff were pleasnt but it looked like there were not enough for the number of customers meaning an excessive wait for food and drink orders to be taken.

The food was to a reasonable standard inline with the cost, available beers were limited to several ale drinks, not to my personal taste but there was an adequate wine list.

I felt i would have been happeir if my friend and I went to Nandos or Pizza express.

I had really been looking forward to the bottomless brunch, however we were seated next to the service pass so witnessed a few "discussions" between the chef and serving staff. The food was pretty average, the poached eggs were cooked through, not runny and everything was served lukewarm. The restaurant had also run out of 2 dishes on the menu and ice cream.
The bottomless mimosas varied in quality, some being almost pure orange juice.

Overall a very disappointing experience.

Food was decent enough but the main complaint it the seating, not a fan of eating at stools at all. Also, at nearly £50 for 2 sandwiches and 2 soft drinks, pretty steep even for the city.

I was very excited to go to Zoblers as I'm from New York. I thought I could get a taste of my home city here in London. Such a shame, the food is really bland and I was so disappointed. I ordered the Reuben and the Russian dressing had no taste whatsoever, the saukraut wasn't tangy at all, the pastrami underseasoned and fatty. As a side we had the mac and cheese with pastrami added, again - bland and no flavour, and had three strips of the fattiest pastrami laid on top. Where is the flavour in this place? My partner did order the lobster roll special for £16 and did enjoy that. Service is excellent, ambience is excellent, but that's about it.

Been here a few times and it is a bit of a mixed bag. The food is always good - typical American Deli. Ambiance is chilled but the service is a bit hit and miss. On this occasion it took someone 15 mins to take both our drinks and food order...and that was after me trying for 5 minutes to get someone! Once the order was taken the drinks were not forthcoming - neither water or the beers arrived. The food then arrived and we asked about the drinks. 2 Minutes later the drinks turn up...and then turn up again...they managed to dupe! When I say 'the drinks' they had also forgotten the water. So, overall, good food, chilled but the service: could do a lot better.

Excellent food. We had booked a table at Zoblers at 21:00. We were on time (We even arrived 5 minutes before time). But then the staff asked us to leave our table at 22:00 as the restaurant was closing at this time. We did not have the time to order a dessert and we had to rush to finish our bottle of wine. A bit early for a Saturday evening dinner!

The food was disappointing. We had coleslaw that was freezing cold and when asked the waiter he said it has been frozen as freshly prepared today which didnt make sense.
The chips were just re heated and were not nice. The chicken was cooked but luke warm. Would not recommend anyone to waste their money at the Zoblers. The actual hotel and live music was amazing and hoping the other resturants there are of a higher standard!!

Booked a table at Zoblers when we arrived the staff were disorganised. Eventually got shown to our table after 10 minute wait. We viewed the menu and after another 10 minutes we ordered drinks and some water for the table. The drinks arrived eventually but no water so we had to ask twice more to get the water. We ordered our mains, and when they came out there were no sides. We had to ask three times again to our side of chips and Mac and cheese by now the burgers etc were cold. We complained to no avail. We ordered deserts, which they made a mistake when bringing out the order, we waited and waited for our daughter's desert which arrived after we had finished our own so we sent it back.
We complained to the manager, and she said she was aware of the problems. She then deleted off all of the parts we had ordered which we had had problems with, which was a nice gesture but if she was aware of the issues why wasn't something done earlier.
People who had ordered after our table were getting there correct order before ours.
Down right awful service not going back.
Not recommend. Over priced for what it is.
Disorganised clientele just walking in an helping themselves to tables jumping queues etc. Needed more than one person at the main arrivals desk to book and take clients to there tables.
Beautiful building and the interior is wonderful.
Awful experience...
Don't waste your time at this place.
Thus was supposed to be a celebration dinner over Christmas as this was the first time our complete family were together in months.

I’ve been to the The Ned on many occasions. However on Friday 21st Dec the Ned seemed to have attracted a rather unique crowd. Firstly a very drunk, strange and uncomfortable young man approached my friend and I asked that we leave the restaurant. This was mid meal. He was rather aggressive too. We reported this to the manager and all she said was ‘sorry would you like to sit elsewhere’. We then moved to the front of the venue near the live band, and just as we took our seats a fight between two ‘gentleman’ broke out. Later we ordered a mimosa and Bloody Mary and rather annoyingly the Bloody Mary was watered down - so we paid £13 for tomato juice and black pepper. Shocking and disappointing night at the Ned!

Have always had a great time at Zobler's, however peak lunch time seems to be a bit touch and go, and on my latest visit had to wait 10/15 mins for a table after arriving in good time for my booking.


Despite his, had a great time and the food came promptly.

Great brunch, service can be scant at times so you have to strain to catch the eye of waiting staff. We had booked the table a long time in advance, so were not happy to be seated far away from the main section in a separate section (the french bar area) by the breezy back door on a freezing cold day, we told them we were not happy to sit there and we managed to get a table in the main section, but it didn't start off a celebration brunch very well. Overall it is a nice place to grab some uncomplicated new york deli inspired food, I would recommend it, just don't expect 5 star service.
