    As usual, excellent time at Blues (shoreditch branch). The service is always a wonderful experience, drinks come out fast so shoutout to the bartenders. Food is 4/5 for me - i would give 5/5 but I doooo think some items need some seasoning. The mac and cheese, for example, is perfectly saucy/cheesy - but can be very bland! Overall though, Blues Kitchen is 5/5 for me. The live bands are dope too.

    Outstanding service (Veronica was looking after us), lively atmosphere and great food at really good prices. Such a great venue, we’ll keep coming back. Also, love that there are great seafood, veggie and vegan options despite the ribs, wings and brisket being the star of the show!

    Brilliant as always!! I will be back again!! My only slight criticism is that one of my friends had to wait 30 minutes for her drink and had nearly finished her dinner by the time her drink arrived despite us asking twice for it. Otherwise, can't complain!

    Love this place, and as a regular who has typically a group of 8-12 people spending over £750, I was somewhat upset to be asked to vacate two tables because they wanted to turn the tables. Understandable if we were not drinking and still had food on the table. However, they were very quick to clear and move us on, which I found not only a poor experience but unexpected. I love this place and can't normally fault it, however, would ask that they spend some time understanding their audience more and treating them accordingly.

    I arrived and waited to be sat. Lovely table and my friends arrived. Many people that work in the place just hanging around the back till. There weren’t many tables sat and service was really slow. Drinks took long to arrive. Food arrived quick. The buffalo cauliflower was cold and the sauce was cold and lumpy. The other dishes were good. We were then served by Elliott! What a breath of fresh air from the elusive service we were receiving!

    What a fabulous meal for our anniversary. The restaurant was very accommodating as we went to the wrong branch to start with so had to push our booking back half an hour! They couldn’t have been more friendly and really made our anniversary special. The food was delicious as always and there is such a great atmosphere there. Massive thank-you to the staff.

    The music/live band is way too loud to have a conversation but good vibes if you just want to chill and catch a vibe with friends. The food was very tasty. Arrived around 10pm and was served at 10.22pm. Nice drinks too.

    Lovely food, great service and strong cocktails. Forced to use a smoking area made for a prison is not the one for me. Also the toilets stunk. Band didn’t start till 10pm and the bar served drinks in a plastic cup! But I’d recommend for the tasty food!

    Food was superb and service was initially really good, until we were pressured to leave our table as soon as we'd finished eating despite still drinking and only being at the table for an hour (when the table was reserved for 2hrs). Left a really sour taste.

    Went for my mums birthday and everyone at the venue was extremely accommodating. Hostess Stephanie was absolutely amazing and made sure my mum had an amazing time. They where more than happy to store our birthday cake and bring it out after we finished eating. Atmosphere, live music, good drinks and food at reasonable prices. Will definitely be coming back here more regularly as this was our first time.

    The blues kitchen is a great venue. Loved the decor. The food didn’t wow me but it was nice. We went for a bottomless brunch and were disappointed to find its was only 90 minutes instead of two hours. The service was a little slow but the staff were very friendly.
