What Insiders Are Saying
Rawduck should be on your shortlist of places to hit for brunch or a casual dinner with mates in Hackney. They also do nice wines, too.
Everything from the food to the service to the atmosphere was perfect! Would definitely go back!!!!
As always lovely dining experience, food very good and service excellent.
My table was listed at the wrong time at their end - so they thought i was late. Quite disorganised and a disproportionate amount of new staff? Asked for some butter and it took about 15 mins to arrive
One of the best meals I have ever had. Everything was delicious. The service was knowledgeable and lovely. The wine was great and reasonably priced. Genuinely excellent.
Interesting choices of food -- love the smaller portions. Fried chicken fabulous and cheesecake outstanding. Friendly service and pleasant ambience.
The dishes were hit and miss and so was the service. We had a dish of skate which appeared to be off - a bad taste. We told the waitress and she just smirked, which felt extremely rude. Overall: quite average.
We had the loveliest time -great vibe with wonderful music, kind souls and smiles for staff, and excellent food. The pickles and bread were great starters, we loved the blood orange starter as well as the mozzarella and artichoke, followed by excellent veal and lamb. Great dessert selection too. Everything is easy to share...and is so much more than just food. Thanks very much!
We waited over an hour for our food - with a toddler who got more and more annoyed. By the time the food arrived our daughter was so impatient we had to eat as quickly as humanly possible. We won't be going back.
Love the place – the food is great and we're always having a good time. 5 STARS!
Loved it! They just got it right. Amazing food. Only comment would be the noise level. Otherwise it’s fantastic.
Interior was cool. Service was poor. Food was mediocre.
Delicious food and nice staff but OMFG SO EXPENSIVE
Always a lovely supper, pickles are a must. Our first Sunday Roast there, and it was perfect.
The food is excellent here but, as always, the service is appalling. Every time I have come here I have had to wait a long time for coffees and food, and often have to remind waiters of my orders. It's such a shame -- this would be such a good place if they could just get their service right.
I love Raw Duck -- delicious food and wine and a friendly atmosphere. Great for dinner on a Friday night.
Food was really lovely and was recommended here by a friend, took my girlfriend there for her birthday, and another booking brought quite a noisy dog, throughout the evening the dinner for two lost its wow factor.
Food and service was great! Music was way too loud though.
We had a brilliant breakfast. Great options menu-wise and they all tasted delicious (we all tried a bit of each others food and it was all super tasty). The staff were lovely and friendly.
Amazing service from the lovely Canadian man. Food perfect as always! More offers though please, can't make it to Hackney in the week much!
Amazing space. Amazing service. Amazing food. Thank you!!!
I absolutely love this place having been twice now already, food is exceptional as is the wine selection. Our waitress was fabulous too 👍🏽
One of my favourite restaurants in London! Beautiful food and wine and the loveliest setting! Always a treat!
Unfortunately, by midday on a Sunday they had run out of the two things my friend and I both wanted to order. It was such a shame, as my friend was vegetarian so left a very minimal choice for breakfast/brunch after that other. They were the two most interesting dishes which seems that they would not stock better for this.
Great food, fantastic offering on the menu and good wine selection
Delicious and inspired sharing plates.
The food was fantastic and I was impressed by the restaurant’s cosy but cool atmosphere. I loved that they play records. There was a bit of a wait for our drinks but it didn’t detract from our positive experience. Will be back!
Food was amazing, service was great and very attentive! I recommend the veal ragu and the kombucha cocktails!
Muy agradable. Platos con ingredientes frescos y organicos. Ideal para quedar con un grupo de amigos a un brunch.
Over all our meal was good, it had been our lust to try and we did. Service was very good and staff helpful and accommodating. Wines ver good.
The service was one of the best - genuine, friendly, caring, knowledgable, unobtrusive. As with Ducksoup & little picklery the food is fabulous.
Lovely place with yummy food but we had pretty crappy service, none of our starters arrived, a few other things were super slow to arrive and we had to remind the waiter. We waited about half an hr for the bill to arrive and when it did the waiter rolled his eyes because our table of 7 wanted to pay separate which isn’t uncommon. We should have asked for the service charge to be removed, we did not complain when things didn’t show up and when the bill arrived so late so for him to roll his eyes at us is very rude, so now I have taken time out to give my first ever bad review.
Amazing food, the Dahl was delicious. Highly recommend
Fantastic restaurant, staff and overall experience.
The Raw Duck is always a good spot to eat with friends.
Pickles and ferments! Nouveau beaujolais! Best cheesecake in london!
The food was absolutely AMAZING! I had the sunny side eggs with Tuscan sausage ragù- made my Sunday brunch perfect. Lovely staff, cute gem in hackney.
popped in for late lunch, had the pollock special, which with a glass of wine, came to £10!
great neighbourhood restaurant, always have a great meal there.
Some well put together dishes. Executed very well. Bone marrow butter was a let down as was the gnocchiette. The rage isn’t a ragun. The pappardelle too hard and thick. No finesse. Similar for all the other desserts,except for the baked cheesecake which was fantastic. So beautiful.
The fried chicken and the accompanying sauce was fantastic so was the anchovy toastie. We will be back to taste the rest of the menu. The beetroot gin was a beautiful revelation. Overall a good experience.
Last week we visited RawDuck for the second time having had a wonderful experience earlier this year, expecting the same when bringing other family along to join for a celebratory meal. We were disheartened to have had a totally different and very much disappointing time, which will no doubt put us off from returning.
Though we appreciate Friday evenings are a busy time for any restaurant, waiting 90 minutes for three small plates to arrive at the table is something we have never encountered elsewhere. Having the blame for that delay shifted onto us by the waiter for the 'way it was ordered' upon asking for an update on the food however, is totally unacceptable. If by simply asking to order mains after finishing starters makes any difference to the serving time of said starters, we would be happy to hear how. Regardless, wrongly being blamed for delays as paying - and returning - customers is totally unwarranted, when the request simply should not (and clearly does not) make any difference to the way the food is served.
We had set our expectations high for a special occasion - it is truly a shame that we left feeling like we were the restaurant's burden.
My brother and I met for a casual meal and thought we would try RawDuck, as we live very nearby and haven’t yet given it a go. We arrived and got sat quickly, drinks and starter orders were taken. My brother ordered a negroni, which was half the size you would expect for a cocktail - he was disappointed to say the least and had finished it within 5 minutes. The starters we ordered arrived in good time however, and were very tasty.
However, our main orders were taken and after half an hour, without anyone coming to take another drinks order or bring our mains, we mentioned to a waitress that we still hadn’t received our food. She said she went to check with the kitchen but no update was given. 15 minutes after this we asked the same waitress - she went to the kitchen but once again, did not update. After one hour of waiting for our main courses we flagged down the manager, who checked with the kitchen and then returned to say our order was not there at all. He asked what we’d ordered and then after checking in with the chefs returned to tell us they had run out of ingredients to make said orders.
Needless to say, we left unsatisfied, and went to a local Vietnamese for a takeaway, which was ready in 5 minutes!
