Really nice food, but it annoys me when the service charge or tip is automatically added to the bill without asking. We had a 15% tip added to our bill of £72 automatically. I would have probably added this anyway as the service was efficient and friendly, but I prefer to be asked out of courtesy. To have this removed from the bill would have meant asking the server to take the bill away and recalculate it which would have been embarrassing and unnecessary. All it means is that I won’t visit Blues Kitchen again which is a shame.

The place was stunning as per usual. Had way more expectations by the band playing though.

Great venue with a great theme and lots of design and creative ideas gone into this place. The staff are what makes this place though with happy professional service. Best bar/restaurant in Camden.

Unfortunately despite many visits there during "normal" times. our visit was extremely uncomfortable as it was overcrowded, no social distancing was present and no tables were out of use. We felt squashed between other people with no opportunity to feel safe.

Contact tracing, hand sanitising etc was minimal also.

I will not be returning until COVID is under control as the rules are not being followed here

AWESOME experience, loved our waitress - a 21 year old Italian lady (please give her a raise!) she was so lovely and attentive throughout our time. Will be back. My fave BK site in London by a milestone

This was my first visit to Blues Kitchen and especially since COVID it was nice to go somewhere with such a great ambience
Staff were so helpful and friendly and kept checking we was okay or needed anything
I had a Popeye burger and it was so nice

We had excellent servers and maitre D, the food was reasonably priced, it was very tasty and the food came quickly. We loved the decor and really really love the cool music. Even the toilets are decorated with very cool Blues artists. The servers were outstandingly nice people. Thank you for making our night! Gotta return as soon as we can, but next time we'll bring friends too!

Probably way too busy for Covid, they have put lot's more tables in there including all along the bar which is really stupid but also even on the stage! We got sat at one right next to the bar, we asked to move after 2 minutes as the bar tenders were all making cocktails and smashing the shakers on the bar non stop right next to us, once we moved though it was great, staff super helpful and food as god as always.

Great food and service, however, is not adapted for covid rules.

No social distancing and even though they have the QR code for the NHS track and trace, no one asked us to sign in.

Food was okay, had the brunch menu at 2pm but would have proffered the lunch/dinner option which started at 4pm. Our mistake. Thanks to the very load cackling from a bunch of middle aged women who were downing prosecco like it was water, we ended our meal early. Portuguese waiter was good

We shared Wings&Things platter between 2: really nice food and came quite quick. Portions are substantial. Ambiance is nice but dark so a little difficult to see your food. Service was good but a little slow. Overall really enjoyed our dinner!

Booked for our 5 year anniversary, table was booked for 8pm and on arrival the lady told us our table was being used and had no where to sit us. We stood in the very busy area by the door where we were told to stay, tables were too close together and no social distancing. We stood for 15 mins until we were taken to a small table at the bar and asked to order some drinks while we waited. We saw the drinks come out and they pasted us 3 times until we could get their attention to say the drinks were ours. Our table was still not ready at 8:30pm. Shortly after we were told to follow the waitress with our drinks to a table, when we got to the table it was dirty and not wiped. She did apologise and said we would have to wait to go to a different table. Finally we were placed at a table, food came out quick and we were out just before 10pm.
Food was great, customer service and attention to detail was appalling. None of the staff knew what they were doing which lead to a really bad experience and upsetting end to our anniversary.
Thank you
