    Restaurant was very nice. Very expensive though. Probably not a place in would revisit. Service was good though. Should be seen as I paid 25 pounds for service alone.

    This place is always spot on - excellent steaks and burgers, and the cocktails are half the price of the silly kontiki bar down the road and twice as good ;-)

    Our steaks were all cooked to perfection and were fabulous. We loved the chips too. My boys had their burgers cooked to their taste. I had a lovely glass of Malbec Everyone was very happy. The service was friendly and attentive. It’s not the first time we have been to Comedor and it won’t be our last.

    On arrival we were told that their wifi didn't work so we would have to pay by cash. On learning that I did not have enough they directed me to a cashpoint close by. There were probably only about 6 tables occupied out of the numerous available. We just ordered one course - a fillet steak each. Mine was so tough and full of sinew making it impossible to cut and eat. It also lacked flavour. I was not going to complain as I felt the restaurant was clearly struggling but the waitress came up and caught me trying to hack my way through it and offered to get me a new one. The replacement was tender and delicious. Maybe they need to find a new meat supplier as a restaurant that holds itself out as a steakhouse needs to always serve top quality steaks? Sadly I do not see this restaurant lasting as all the others in Upper Street were buzzing! On a positive note the service was good!

    The steaks were really good and everyone at the table loved them. The waiter gave us very useful recommendations and was helpful and friendly throughout the dinner. On a less positive note the room is not the most inspiring for that type of meal. The music and lighting weren't improving the experience. Really quiet as well. An overall good experience, that I would recommend for the quality of the food, but probably won't repeat because it's not a 'go back to' kind of place.

    Quite expensive for what it is. Had a starter of prawns and asparagus. You didn’t get many of either for £9.95. Burger was decent. Iberico pork was overdone to the extent it could have come from a pig raised anyhow. When they came to ask me how are meal was I told them about the pork and they had no idea how to react. After that the service was frosty.

    Ate here before going to a concert at the Garage. Lovely warm welcome, great atmosphere and excellent food. Steaks are half price on a Monday which was lucky - it's a bit pricey because the prices are just for the steak - you have to pay extra for all the sides but it was worth it. Looking forward to going back.

    The place is very nice very good atmosphere, Monday they have 50% discount on meat that was perfect for new years eve... the only thing bad was the meat was served in a chopping board making the meat go cold very quick, we had a platter which had 4 different type of meat and it was too raw hardly cooked I say, we asked for medium-rare.

    We waited 25 minutes before the orders were taken then we had a fairly average starter (my crab had some inedible bits of shell) and steak (really fatty) with a bottle of basic Chardonnay and two glasses of Malbec for £55 each. Dreadful service and a less than average meal. Don’t believe the hype.

    Went for the Sunday brunch special with bottomless drinks option. Excellent food - my steak was particularly good - the concept of 3 small plates works well but the waiting staff could make more effort to ask in which order they are required. The ability to mix between bottomless drinks - bloody Marys, Prosecco, mimosas, sangria - was also a useful feature. Service could have been a bit quicker but we had plenty of time so it wasn't really an issue. Would thoroughly recommend for a leisurely weekend lunch.

    Decided to go here as their promotion of £10 steak seemed too good to be true! We were under the illusion that it included the steak on their menu- fillet, sirloin etc but when we sat down and ordered, the waiter informed us it was just for a flat iron steak (not even on the menu). This was rather disappointing as all day we had been looking forward to something else. When the food came out, it was delicious - flat iron tasted fantastic so not faults there! The sides and sauce is a bit pricey (£1.95 for a small peppercorn sauce) but did taste good. In total, the meal (including wine) came to £140 for 4 people. We were expecting a cheaper evening considering the steak was £10 so watch out for those additional extras. I would come back, but am more cautious that if it seems too good to be true price wise, it probably is! We all really enjoyed the food though!

    Celebrating our wedding anniversary, its been a few years since we last went and we are glad we came back! Service was excellent! Asado starter was melt in the mouth tasty and we shared a Porterhouse which was cooked perfectly. Sides and drink was very good quality. I will deffo not wait years to come back again. Thanks to the management for making this a memorable evening.

    Went here to celebrate a birthday. Friendly service and great meat options! Starters were tiny however, and wine was not great (although that was probably just our poor choice). The restaurant was almost empty despite a Friday night, which did actually suit us quite well. I would go back, definitely, but not for a special occasion but more for a casual meal.

    I will try to be concise - Food was really tasty as well as the drinks, but they did advertise pisco sour on opentable and on the billboards outside the restaurant.  when i asked for the pisco sour they said the menu had changed and was not on the bottomless menu anymore. I pointed to the sign outside that was advertising this. The guy there (I assume was the manager/waiter) added  that if i wanted the pisco sour would be a la carte. - After an hour an a half the same guy mentioned above came over to  say that our time for bottomless brunch was over,but other tables were offered a last round before they left. We didn't. -When we were still in the middle of our last drink...the bill arrived. We had not asked for it at any point. -We also overheard the manager asking the table behind us if they were sure about what they order because the dishes that were brought out were incorrect. - food and drinks were good but after paying almost £40 per person I would NOT recommend this place to anyone or come back.
