Service was a bit slow at times - music was too loud at times too but that’s down to the DJs really not checking levels. Not keen on the new menu. Last winter there was a lovely pie you did - please bring it back :)

Very cool place, but the music can get incredibly loud and makes it almost impossible to speak to anyone, plus the waiters are not trained very well. Food is great and the music is very good as well.

I loved Spiritland. The environment was very cool and chic. The occasion was a business meeting so I'd say it was a little too busy for this sort of thing, but still good fun. Impressive cocktails and good finger food.

first visit, service wasn’t great!
Bill arrived showing a service charge which is obviously ok, card machine then asks for more gratuity! waitress explains that they don’t receive the service it’s for building services etc and they’re paid sh*t. Probably why service was so bad and wouldn’t hurry back

Beautiful and sophisticated bar with food in a vibrant area of London. We had a lovely evening with good cocktails and great atmosphere. Only downside was that they forgot two of our dishes. As soon as we let the waiter know he made sure both got to us asap and on the house, so great service.

Great venue and sound system, live djs and speakers in the individual toilets. I had booked this for a date as had previously been here for brunch and we had noted that it was lovely to be able to talk and hear the music but not shout. By 8pm however ( arrived at 8.45) the level had been cranked up and we were shouting across the table to converse.

The place must be great in the evening but for weekend brunch it is a rather poor choice, even though they do advertise themselves as a brunch place.

The food was tasty but portions quite ridiculously small and definitely overpriced.

They also seem to be short on sugar because one of the waiters kept on snatching it from our table without asking and was almost shocked when we asked him to put it back (twice as well).

On overall, I’d only visit the place again if I ran out of other options.

Always love coming here, but never really visited in the summer, as they never had an outside seated area... which they do now, so I'm really happy!

Great service as always, and it was good to see the menu get a bit of refresh, with the come of the classic dishes still remaining. The Marguez Sausage Roll, is amazing!

Drinks are still on point.

Music as ever is always awesome.

One of my fave spots in London, and on this occasion, I would definitely recommend for a date.

Hello, I LOVE your bar and i come regurarly. The djs are amazing, the music, the environment, thecocktails. However, the music is way too loud sometimes. I love this place so i come a lot but my friends cannot bare the volume of the music and don't want to come back.. They are in their early thirties so it is not that they are too old for loud music. I believe if the volume was a little lower everyone would enjoy it even more. Many thanks!

Utterly fabulous as usual, I have never had a disappointing evening at Spiritland. The service was impeccable, the food and wine delicious and the music fantastic. Sadly too late for that evenings playing of a whole album as that is always a treat. Don’t go expecting a massive theee course meal but the food that is served is excellent and perfect to share alongside a drink.

Awesome as usual.

One of our bartenders was pretty forgetful with our orders on a number of occasions,but his
colleagues made up for him plenty.

It would be nice to see some new additions to the food menu.

Great place and sound system - recommend dipping in and out in small groups as if you go with a large group and are unlucky with the dj you may feel stuck there. Djs are generally great but the noise levels vary a lot (I have been many times) from enjoyable to too loud to talk / eat dinner!

I absolutely love this place. The ambience is great, loved having the DJ (Ben Gomori) play live next to us while we ate. It's different, and the food is absolutely fantastic. My only criticism is that I think the venue was let down heavily by it's wine list, which is just not nearly as good as the food. I thought £6.50 for a very small glass of sub-standard wine was a bit of a let-down. Stick to the cocktails.

I had a reservation at 8:30 pm yesterday.
My friend went there on time, though he had difficulty entering, he managed to get to our table.
I was 15 mins late.
The guy waiting at the door did not let me in!!!
I told him that I had a reservation and my date was inside waiting for me. He did not let me in saying that it was full and it would take at least an hour for him to accept people inside. He didn't even let me talk to any manager.
My friend had already ordered while waiting for me. He had to pay for the drinks he couldn't even finish and come out. I really thought this was a joke! never happened to me before!!
How can they be disorganized and The guy didn't even apologize! He acted like this was a normal thing.
Why do you take reservations then?? Or tell us beforehand that you might not be able to let us inside even though we have a reservation.
How unprofessional, poor and disrespectful of them! They ruined our night!

We had a great time. We got what we considered to be the best seats in the room, centre of the speakers and far enough to enjoy conversation.
We had the company of a Steely Dan anorak whose enthusiasm for the band helped us enjoy the evening even more.
Highly recommended.
