    Absolutely brilliant in every way - the food was delicious, as were the cocktails. Would 100% recommend to others and I'd love to go back and dine again soon.

    Food was tasty, menu was unusual and exciting. Greeted by a welcoming host who was helpful and pleasant. Overall a good dining experience but my one complaint would be that we felt under pressure from our waiter to order quickly: he barely gave us time to look at the menu before he asked for our order and then came back less than 1 minute later to ask again; plates were whipped away as soon as the last mouthful was gone; we were handed the dessert menu and asked for our order before we had even looked properly, and so on. If the food hadn’t been so delicious it would definitely have spoiled the evening for us.

    The waiters weren't very polite and friendly. Not one smile during all the service, we had the impression to disturb. We hardly had some explanation about the menu and we had to ask. The food was good but nothing mind blowing.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Ottolenghi Spitalfields. It was busy and noisy but a great vibe. The food was very tasty and didn't disappoint - the wine is usual London prices. What really made it was the front of house lady and the sommelier who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and special.

    Nice atmosphere however the food was very salty (I prefer lunch at one of the other branches) and the wine we had was corked - the waitress said that there had been an issue with that batch of wine so I’m not sure why it was even offered to us. I love Ottolenghi but this wasn’t quite up to the usual standards and was quite expensive, sorry!

    Do not take the advice of the staff re how many dishes to order - we made this mistake and ended up with an over abundance of food - my wife and I were advised to order 3 dishes each, which we did, and when the meat dishes came (beef, goat, pork) they were the portion sizes for a large hungry bloke - the bill came to £126 (with 1 non alcoholic cocktail that was 70% ice and 30% drink, and 1 glass of red wine) - it was worth less than 1/2 of that, irrespective of the fact the food tasted nice - we wished we’d gone back to Pizza Union around the corner again Never again will we step into an Ottolenghi YorkieIlkley

    I was so excited to finally try ottolenghi because I have all the cook books but it was so disappointing. The food was really average (apart from the amazing goat dish) and our mains were room temperature... not even warm. Our waitress was okay, could’ve been a bit friendly & understood the menu and particularly the wine list better. We took a look round the deli on our way out (I wanted to buy a book) but the staff were so rude & slagging off one of their colleagues I didn’t bother. It felt overpriced and I wouldn’t go back or recommend sadly.
