Steakhouse

The Meat Co. restaurant at London’s Westfield Shopping Centre is the UK’s first branch of an international steakhouse chain. We always knew Westfield Shopping Centre was going to be popular with fashionistas, but who would have guessed it would become a firm favourite with London’s foodies too? Designed by New York’s Jorge Castillo, the interior is a vibrant mix of leather, wood and stone, while the impressive ‘wine wall’ displays nearly 2000 bottles, almost all from award-winning vintners. Carnivores can feast on prime cuts of perfectly aged and grilled beef, tender ribs, burgers, flame-grilled skewers, and exotic specials like kangaroo fillet. There’s a halal menu and salads and seafood dishes on offer too - don’t miss the delicious pan-fried prawns with shallots, garlic and peri peri sauce!

    Food was lovely I had oxtail and mash which was delicious and my friend had a rib burger both were cooked well and served beautifully. I would go there again although the waiters could be a little less rushed and wait for me to say my whole order before rushing off

    First we were seated and given the menu but no drinks menu even though guys asking us for what drinks we want to order. When we asked for the menu he assumed we already know what to order considering we only got the menu. We ordered wings which were burnt. The prawns were nice. Then we got the skewers. The skewers were set on our table and we were left to it. As we were trying to cut it off another waiter came and said we ain't supposed to do that and the other waiters should have taken the meat off for us. So the service was not great, the Asian guy with glasses really wasn't great at service. The skewers were tasty though. But found better service in a less priced restaurant

    Went to Meat & Co for my anniversary. There was a hair in my steak. I'm not so much annoyed about this but was more frustrated at the attitude from the Manager. Firstly, she denied that there was a hair making me feel as if I was lying about it. Secondly, they expected my boyfriend to eat his food whilst i watched him for 30 minutes whilst a new steak was cooked. Had to keep pushing for our food to come together, rolled her eyes took all the food and brought back the food altogether. Bad experience on this occasion but have previously had a good experience at this restaurant.

    Very overpriced for the quality of steak. Also not keen on the glaze they put on all the steaks. Had I been told about the glaze I would have asked to have my steak without it.

    Food was delicious. Something for everyone ! The only downfall was the waiting time. Took too long both good and dessert. Not practical with children who are hungry and tired.

    Food was great. Location was fine. The greeting when we first entered could have been a lot better. First we had to wait for the two ladies to finish their conversation... and then there was confusion - they didn’t know if we had a booking but sent us upstairs anyway.

    Even though I have been here several times before and I've loved the food and service. This time around it was not the same. I ordered the 300g Wagyu beef and they served me dry aged beef, which I didn't complain at the time due to it being very busy as it was valentines day. I told them to remove the service charge and give me my bill. I was shocked to be served dry aged beef, as I was paying £60 for a 300g portion of Wagyu. I am not happy with being fobbed off. My partner ordered the basic beef that they have and it was a lot more softer and nicer than my supposedly Wagyu beef. Not happy. Service was rushed, very noisy, and staff did not seem to care and were running around hectically.

    I came her back in 2015, I really enjoyed my meal. I don’t think they do the same thing anymore. Anyway I tried the rib eye steak, it was okay but I have had much better steak for the same price. Seeing as they serve halal only meat I was surprised they didn’t have a corner for me to pray.

    Negative Service (we arrived while it was fairly quiet) after nearly half an hour of waiting I had to go to the front desk to ask for someone to introduce themselves and take our order. Our waitress was extremely moody and should quite honestly find herself another profession as she wasn’t the the right fit for our bubbly table. This put a downer on the night. Having not visited in a few years I was really excited to come back but it isn’t acceptable to have servers looking after one section and neglecting the other. The starters arrived before our drinks due to ‘the bartender being new’ but after waiting for half an hour in the first instance, you can understand why this was disappointing. Lifts were out of order - not an issue for me personally but one of my friends recently had surgery and it took her a while to get up the stairs. Guests should be informed! We had another tables order added to our bill so yet again we were let down. We didn’t pay the service charge and there was only 1 member of staff who apologised and he wasn’t serving our table. Positive Receptionist downstairs was lovely and polite. The food and drinks were outstanding - go for the Zombie cocktail and Moscato for dessert wine. I ordered the boneless whole chicken with mash and it was divine! The music was great whilst it was quiet. It’s rare that you go to a restaurant and hear R&B - Summer Walker, H.E.R., et al. It really was refreshing. Once an older crowd came in, the music was changed but we had enjoyed the previous selection so much that we didn’t really notice! The toilets were very clean. They are unisex but they’re very well maintained! Bravo! Overall This restaurant has the potential to blow your mind away but a few things let us down. The service made me question the value for my money. I won’t hurry back which is a shame.

    The food was great. However, some of the staff were so miserable it was unbelievable. Ruins the whole experience, it’s a shame as the food itself was delicious and portion size was good too. They did get my order wrong too.

    Very disappointed with this place. Service was poor; felt unwelcomed. Was given microwaved rice: this dish was labelled as 'the house special for a decade'. The slow cooked beef ribs had the membrane left on it. £60 steak - had to spit out sinew. Would not recommed to other, whens there are other places out there who give a better food and service at a fraction of the price without promising the world.

    Although the food is always on point, the service on this occasion was not great. The waiters were not attentive and it wasn’t busy. What really let me down was that this was a birthday meal where I requested a cake topped with a candle be bought out at the end of the mains for my husband - this didn’t happen. If they couldn’t accommodate this they should have told me when I booked the table. I’ve always requested this before and they have delivered - so disappointed on this occasion.

    Can’t fault the food it was such a high quality. Only reason I didn’t give five stars was because I felt the waiters could’ve been a bit more attentive and vocal. Toilets weren’t at a quality you’d expect at such an establishment either.
