They have an ambiguous dress code. We were wearing normal black leggings with no sports logos etc. We were told that we were inappropriately dressed and will be accommodated this time. They need to be more clear about what is their dress code and they need to be more open minded if they want international clientele!

Hot food was good, I feel like the sushi wasn’t as good as expected for a fish speciality restaurant. Service was fast and accomodating even in the late hours.

It’s good but Nobu and hakkasan do those things better. Don’t think it excelled at anything but was a good standard. Wouldn’t go again as hakkasan and Nobu do a better job.

Sexy Fish is a great atmosphere, great ambiance! They have a wide selection of drinks and the food is amazing! My biggest issue is that we felt rushed. Super rushed- especially for a place that serves food as it comes and small sharing plates. If you serve food in that way- obviously, people will order some dishes and keep ordering over time. We were told to leave after 2ish hours because our table had another reservation. We were going to order more food, but because one of the servers told us they’d have to ask us to leave if we didn’t order more food, we didn’t. I wouldn’t go there again with friends for dinner. Maybe drinks, but from what I’ve heard the doormen don’t let people just go in for drinks without a reservation, so not sure I’ll ever go back.

The food was excellent but very small portions for the main courses. Desert a different matter esp for cheesecake - it was literally a whole cake - it was amazing.
It’s a shame about the wait staff or at least our lead waitress - we were acutely aware of our 2 hour time slot but it should 2.5 by as by the time you sit down the clock is ticking! At one point I was still chewing on at my plate was whipped away I said I was still eating but the waitress insisted - my friend’s plate was already taken away! I should be entitled to keep my dignity whilst on an evening out to dinner at a supposedly good restaurant. Such a shame about the emphasis on getting people out so quickly it definitely impact the pleasure of dining out at this restaurant.

Why does everybody at this restaurant think they are so better than the people they are serving? This was my 3rd time there and every time just gets worse. The waitress removed 2 dishes than were not finished from our table. She rushed us on our orders and was rude and very unprofessional. This is my last time We will be going there.

It was a pleasant birthday lunch and the staff tried to ensure that we had a good meal. The only annoyance was when making the reservation they placed an importance on dress code. When they called to confirm they also emphasised the dress code over phone and voicemail. The reality was that other diners were not entirely meeting the dress code. I could have done without the reminders since it seems like everything was an exception at lunchtime.

The most horrendous service in this place. I was there celebrating my sister’ passing her exams to graduate from her Masters and regret enormously having made the booking there. I did it because my company hires the room they have downstairs and decided to go as it is close to work, but never again.
I was rushed to leave in the most rude way as the waiter did not even allowed me to finish a cup of tea I was in the middle of having. I hardly understood his english when he was telling us off for not leaving. Awful experience, will never return, after paying £200 for an early dinner which also made me sick after leaving the place (booking was at 5:45) they delayed bringing the rice to have with the main, which delayed finishing the main course... a complete disaster of night. Awful is a too small adjective to describe how horrendous I felt tonight in this place.
In addition the restaurant overcharged for covers, me and my sister were 2 people, they charged for 4 people and they took their time to correct the overcharge, not massive amount but annoying nonetheless.

Buzzy atmosphere on a Saturday night. But, our table wasn't ready when we arrived on time, too much upselling from waiter and sommelier, food was good but very expensive. Tricky one, try it but you may not go back.

The food & the drinks are fantastic. Everything I ate was incredible. But the service is overbearing and makes you feel rushed. The tables for 2 are tiny and I had to juggle large menus and drinks and it made me feel rather clumsy and awkward. The tables themselves aren’t big enough to manage the pace at which they bring the sharing dishes. Our waiter was fine, but also pushy. You get the impression they’ve been trained in a militant way to get your order immediately. I was asked to order 3 times before I’d even had a chance to look (this is in under 10 minutes). When we tried to just order some things to get started so we could buy some time to look at the menu more thoughtfully we were advised that we had to order everything at once.
I hate being rushed, and given the price, you’d think they could treat you with more warmth and welcome than someone taking up a spot on their conveyor belt of tables.

Sexy Fish is a great venue, not only is it stylish and buzzy with great food but the service is outstanding. We started our evening at the bar where, although very busy the staff found us a couple of seats. Then when it was time to be seated at our table we were told it wasn't quite ready, but were immediately offered two drinks to soften the blow. When the table still wasn't ready 25 minutes later they discussed options with us and ordered us some food to either have at the bar or at the table if ready. As it turned out the table was ready and the food arrived as we sat down. Once seated the service was impeccable and to our delight the drinks at the bar and the appetisers were excluded from the bill. Sometimes things don't go according to plan but its how the restaurant deals with it that sets them apart - well done Sexy Fish.

Poor from the get go. Awkward bar arrangement. You’re shown to a bar where you can’t even get to the bar man/woman.

Seating area is very dark.

I notified the restaurant it was my wife’s birthday, they called to confirm, take down her name etc. However on the night nothing happened at all so I don’t know what the point of that was. Waste of time and a huge let down.

The food wasn’t too bad however there are better options in the local area. These options also offer a better and more attentive service.

First time at Sexy Fish and I am not impressed in the slightest.
