    We were all impressed. Our waiter Dionysus was one of the best waiters I’ve ever had. Absolutely brilliant in himself and with unbelievable efficiency. The food was perfectly cooked from my delicate cod to the tenderest of lamb. We all said we’d come back.

    Very busy, good service, menu choices are simple, it will be better if they offer more items to celebrate their culinary style, otherwise tend to be on pricey side for simple menu

    It was my first visit to this restaurant. My daughter, who accompanied me on this occasion - to celebrate Father's Day - had been here previously with friends. The restaurant has a lively atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff. The menu, whilst limited, was exactly what I was after - traditional English fare accompanied with nice bottle of French wine. The meal was finished with a delicate pot of fresh green mint tea. Overall, an enjoyable experience.

    A delicious brunch at Dean Street Townhose. A lovely relaxed atmosphere but with a touch of elegance. We had to wait a while for our order to be taken and disappointingly we had to get the waiters attention as we felt we had been waiting for too long. This has never happened before so hopefully a one off. Usually the service is good. Food is always delicious.

    This is a lovely venue which I've eaten at before - but while the food was very good, the service was not up to previous standards. Initial drinks (gin & tonic) were served without tonic which we had to call someone over to bring; our wine was left in a cooler about 12ft away and it wasn't until we asked where it was (over mid-way through the main course) that our glasses started being topped up. Dessert menu was left with us for 20 minutes so, in the end, I had to get up and find someone to take our order; when I told this person that I didn't like being left to wait so long, he brushed over this and did not offer any form of apology. All this was highly unprofessional and not a little embarrassing - and I state this as someone who has run a professional chef and front of house training school. That I was hosting a previous Lord Mayor of Westminster just made it all the more embarrassing.

    I chose Dean Street Townhouse to celebrate my niece's birthday and wanted it to feel like a special experience for her. When I arrived, I unknowingly used the wrong entrance - there was an open door with "Dean Street Townhouse" sign immediately above, hence why I made the mistake - but was greeted very rudely by a male member of staff. He greeted me without looking at me, and language was short and snappy with emphasis on me being at the wrong entrance, then turned to me and looked me up and down. When I was escorted 15 feet to the correct side of the restaurant, two front of house ladies greeted me with very similar energy. By this point I felt like I was inconveniencing the whole staff force just by breathing. The food was excellent and I have no complaints regarding food. Our waiters were much more friendly but still seemed rushed and maybe understaffed? The restaurant did also bring out a plate of chocolates with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate, which was a nice touch. Food was the highlight, customer service was disappointing and I really expected more from Dean Street Townhouse. It was not the brasserie fantasy I was hoping for at all, but my niece got a video for tiktok so I suppose it was a success.

    Usually had really good service and great value for money here. Just lots of issues with ordering. Some food arrived luke warm, our glasses were empty most the meal with no ability to top up ourselves (absent waitor) and then having to get up and find staff to get the bill because we were ignored so often. Don't know if yesterday was a one-off, but extremely disappointed. Oh, and coming home to find out we were overcharged wasn't great, the staff forgot to bring the drink but charged us for it!

    Space and ambience as good as ever, and whilst the food is good, there are better places to eat in Soho. But my main complaint was the intrusive waiters continually interrupting our meal to upsell, be it more water, more wine or more food. It felt very touristy and not the cool place it used to be . Will go elsewhere in future.

    They handled a very busy service very professionally. The soup was initially served luke warm but without a moments pause, apologised and brought a new, piping hot bowl of deliciousness! Let’s face it mistakes happen but it’s how staff deal with them that marks out a good restaurant.
