    Booking hadn't come thru, but staff quickly organised alternative seating; eating options however very limited due to instant closure for a longer period directy afterwards.

    A very nice place close to Liverpool St station, only recommendation is that, when the weather is hot and sunny perhaps they could have a few umbrellas to provide some shade when sitting outside.

    This place is good, as a result it gets busy. Don’t expect a quiet evening. Very enjoyable if you like lively.

    Great location, tucked away in Liverpool Street. Lively bar scene, with a great outdoor area. There was an initial mix up with the booking as Open Table was listing table availability that did not match with actual availability at the venue; I would recommend calling ahead to confirm your OT booking with the restaurant itself to avoid confusion. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly despite this, working to accommodate our booking request anyway. We received prompt service throughout the evening, despite how busy it was on the Bank Holiday. Food and drinks were great quality at a fair price. Would recommend and would return.

    Cosy and comfortable, like all Davy's pub/restaurants. Excellent small plates - perfect as we didn't fancy a full meal. Sharing platters had a good variety. Great location - very convenient for Liverpool Street arrival.

    Booked a table online, walked with suitcases only to find that the online booking system was wrong and no food being served at 9pm that evening. Very disappointed.

    On arriving at The Steak Exchange, I was surprised to see that the business had been sold and this was now a Davy's Winebar. The staff were extremely helpful and explained the business had changed over a few weeks' earlier but could offer nothing but Bar Snacks. Amazingly, when I was looking for an alternative restaurant nearby, I found that Open Table were still offering bookings for "The Steak Exchange" at the same address even for that night! I don't think I will risk making any further bookings through Open Table until your systems are improved. You had even sent me a confirmation e-mail stating that my booking had been accepted. Not professional.

    Have been to this restauarant several times before, and using the 2 for 1 offer on food , the bill is fairy reasonable. Restaurant was fairly quiet - as it was a wet Thursday night, and we had booked an early sitting, due to train problems at Liv St. Quality of steak was superb - we had chateubraind between us. You do need to order a few sides, as portions are not that big. Service was very good - our waitress was really freindly Would definitely recommend

    Another visit to steak exchange for a group booking and another set of happy diners. Been here numerous times for our monthly steak Night and the sharing steaks always go down really well. I shared the bone in rib of beef and it was excellent. Shall be visiting again soon.
