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.

Cool venue, fast and competent service. Tables can be a little close and with the tables being quite large one ends up being nearer the neighbour. The swarm of door staff seems a little needless, but perhaps they need that many... we were there early. Overall good.

We had the fixed price meal for £37 which consisted of 4 dishes from a wide ranging menu together with a dessert course which were all very tasty and quite adequate for the 2 of us. It’s a lovely restaurant situated right on Berkeley Square so should impress your fellow diners.

I understand there is a 2 hour limit for one table to dine and leave but asking 10.000 times to move the unfinished dishes off the table was a bit annoying. I believe your guests are already aware of the time limit, if not you could warn them close to the end, not periodic. Overall it was a great experience and I believe it was the best salmon I’ve ever had in my life.

We had a party of 6 adults and a 6-month old dine at Sexy Fish. To say our experience was awesome is an understatement ! The staff was exceptional and seated us at a perfect table that allowed us to accommodate our grand daughter.... (without inconveniencing other diners). They where gracious and the Somm was spectacular in his recommendations! My wife and I have dined before and we know that 6-month olds are not their “core demographic”... however, they accommodated and allowed us an exquisite dining experience, with our family ... thanks all... we will be back many times (doubtful with a neonate...😉) in the future and will also recommend to all!!! Well done!

Food excellent as usual but the service was outstanding!

My only reservation is I still object to being asked to sit for a drink at the Bar - when we arrived and "your table is not ready" is a crude way to get extra spend.

Having said that I was entertaining some guests and wanted something "very special" and that's exactly what we got - additionally the overall price was 25% less than I expected!

Incredible dining experience! The service was great, food was incredible, and the vibe was classy and chic but fun and not snooty at all. Cocktails were unique and tasty. We ordered probably 30 dishes to share with our group and were never disappointed by any of them. A few stand out faves were the duck and watermelon salad, octopus carpaccio, pork belly, chef sashimi selection and crab udon noodles. Fabulous experience worth every penny.

We booked the lunch deal. Dishes served with a flourish are small and unremarkable. Style over substance. The grilled prawn was raw. I called a waiter over who without asking what the issue was, looked at my dish, removed my plate and said he would bring fresh ones. Is this a regular occurrence? No apology was given and we were charged full cover and service charge. When I suggested that at least an acknowledgement of the issue would have been appreciated, I was told that it was fine as prawns are served raw as sashimi, so it was unlikely to have made me ill, although upon further discussion he accepted I hadn't ordered raw prawns. This is a place to be seen, not for foodies. The decor is amazing. Go for cocktails, then eat somewhere cheaper and more tasty.

Highly overrated. I’ve been wanting to visit for a while and went for my birthday. Food did not blow me away; much better restaurants to eat at in the area. What was REALLY ANNOYING, however, was the constant reminder that we only had the table for two hours. From the phone call to confirm my booking, to the reception desk on our arrival, to the waiters - any interaction with staff led to a “don’t forget the table is until 9.15”. To the point that when we ordered dessert, the waiter actually first checked his watch first before taking the order to make sure we still had enough time! Led to a very pressurised meal and a thoroughly unpleasant experience. Won’t be coming here again.

Enjoyed our visit to Sexy fish but a couple of things bothered us. We were asked if we’d like s drink at the bar which we did. Half way through the drink the waitress said our table was ready. We then decided to do the tasting menu which is a lot of food and felt like a conveyor belt the way the food was fired at us. Way too rushed for the money we spent .over £400 is way too expensive for a two hour dinner. 2 hours is not enough to enjoy this experience. Worth a visit to the restaurant to experience it, though just maybe have a main and desserts. Decor very nice. Our waiter was very pleasant too.

Booked for the lunch deal and were told we couldn't use this as we were 15 minutes late which was shame. The meal ended up being very expensive and while tasty wasn't the best meal I've had for £200. Great cocktails and waiter was wonderful.

The only think I would say is the music was quite loud so it was hard to hear my partner sometimes without leaning closer, the music was good though. All in all, an amazing evening.
