    Had such a great evening! The som Peter was lovely. The food was excellent especially the onion and fermented lentils main dish was excellent, who knew an onion could taste so meaty with such a depth of flavour. The wine list is also great, so many delicious wines were drank! Will definitely be back

    I had lunch here with a friend yesterday. What a fantastic place! The service provided by extremely kind and knowledgeable staff was excellent. The wine list is vast and super good quality. The food menu is of ample size but not too much, and the dishes we ate were delicious. Great vibe going on too! Thanks to the whole team here who really do know what they are doing. I can't wait to return, even if it's just to drink some more of the fantastic wines.

    Wine is the speciality at Soif and the staff are very knowlegeable and helpful with recommendations. The food is excellent – small plates, but isn't everything now? – and the menu has lots of choice. It's popular and can be noisy, but I thoroughly recommend it.

    In the rush of the new and the hot, it is important to support some consistently great restaurants that have been around a long while and are still performing as well as ever. Soif is that, always lovely, satisfying, delicious food, great natural wine selection and great service. Prices creep up and up but no more than anywhere else. Definitely worth a new or return visit.

    As a man, I was given a simple remit; find me some good French food in London. This place doesn’t disappoint. I just wish I’d had time to sample the entire wine menu! Top place to try for that rustic French vibe. See you again soon! 😊

    This was my first visit to Soif and I was very impressed by the quality of the food, and the care and consideration that had obviously been taken in selecting the natural and biodyanmic wine list. We really enjoyed our sharing plate of Jerusalem artichoke and Goats Curd, followed by the two-course set menu which was generous in portion size, extremely tasty and very reasonably priced. I asked for a recommendation for a wine to accompany the desserts and was given some very interesting and unusual options. I went for the Austrian Blaufrankisch which did not disappoint. If you are looking for a neighbourhood French bistro, with excellent food and an interesting wine list, I would not hesitate to recommend.

    Over the years we loved Soif but yesterday's lunch was not so good. It was empty when we arrived apert from staff and visiting friends who were quite noisy. We had difficulty getting served despite being empty which was a shame. I hope they get their act together as it used to be such a good French restaurant

    We have been going to Soif for around 10 years We love it because the food never disappoints and the restaurant has a lovely cosy ambience. They have got the perfect balance of creating a relaxed atmosphere, but with attention to detail with the decor, music, service and most of all the food. The modern French menu is always delicious and cooked to perfection. It’s not the cheapest place to eat in the area, but the quality of food far outstrips the others restaurants. I would say is worth it for a special night out as we never leave disappointed. We would highly recommend Soif.

    Service was excellent when I arrived. But as Soif became busier it was less good. It’s a very popular restaurant and the tables are close together. The menu is really enticing-sharing plates,small plates and usual size main courses. We chose small plates-a terrine, heritage tomatoes and sardines, a gorgeous mushroom dish and something with red cabbage-rather less tasty! My friend drank Pinot noir and I drank Beaujolais-one glass only as I was driving. Soif specialises in wine and the maitre’ is knowledgeable. If you go there-walk!
