About

Recently listed as one of the top 10 Steakhouses in London (2019) by Steak Society, and last year as having one of the best Sunday Nut Roasts in London by Condé Nast Traveller, The Jones Family Project is an independently owned modern steak restaurant & cocktail bar that takes great care sourcing of the products it uses. Its extensive wine list of over 100 wines always has more than 28 by the glass & their cocktail list features in-house aged ingredients. Their main focus is meat, with steaks dry-aged for a minimum of 28 days & cooked on their Josper grill, but there are always atleast two vegetarian dishes on their a la carte menu and, as all dishes are prepared by their experienced chef team in house, they are able to adapt many of their dishes to meet requests by diners with food intolerances & allergies (a gluten free menu is listed on their website). In addition to fantastic steaks, house specialities include Pork Rib Eye, Truffled Mac n Cheese & Anna's Triple Chocolate Brownie.

It's hard to find words that can say how I like the steak. It was incredible and the perfect end for my birthday. When I'll come back to London, I definitely will come back to Jones Family

Our waitress was phenomenal. One of our party had some serious, and complex allergies that she spent time to understand properly, and worked seamlessly with the kitchen to manage them.
We all ate steak, which was extremely tasty, and beautifully cooked. The sides were great, and a good sizes too. I will definitely be back.

Unfortunately my views of this restaurant have changed since my first visit. I took my partner here for valentines and we ordered the lamb ribs, but there was NO lamb at all.. only fat! We complained to the manager and she was very rude (didn’t seem to care) and gave us a measly £1.80 off. The service was very bad, the waiter kept ignoring us (probably because we dared to complain) and was very unhelpful with any questions we’d ask (from wine to food recommendations) and didn’t seem bothered to try. We left and no one even said goodbye, never have we been treated so badly as paying customers.
The meal definitely wasn’t worth it and we didn’t have a good experience. Would not recommend again. There are a lot more friendly and enjoyable restaurants to choose from in Shoreditch.

Layout of the restaurant was a strange experience- felt like we were huddled together in a room with now option to sit elsewhere or line of sight.

Also, my seat was really low and soft- I folded up my coat and sat on that to be a little more raised.

This was the perfect place to eat after my son's graduation ceremony at the Barbican Centre. It felt special enough for a celebration, warm and cosy, with great low level lighting. We really enjoyed having a cocktail in the funky bar upstairs before going down to the cosy restaurant below. It was busy (even for a Tuesday night) but the service was good and the food was great. We all enjoyed our meals and I can recommend the duck starter which was lovely and my son enjoyed his steak.
Just one minor point: I had seen online that there was a separate vegan menu but that wasn't offered to us and I had to ask for it. Why not offer all menus to everyone? You don't have go be vegan or vegetarian to enjoy those dishes.
I had researched a few restaurants in the area as I really wanted everything to be right and I'm so pleased I made this choice. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Pleasant place. Good ambience. Table service was slow. The food was terrible. My daughter's steak was ordered medium to well. It arrived thoroughly pink throughout. My pork chop suffered the opposite fate. Badly charred on both sides and inedible on some levels. The flavour was definitely ruined. The kitchen seems to have problems. We didn't make a fuss with the waitress because that would have ruined our evening. I'll just vote with my wallet and never return.

Delicious birthday meal. We had prime rib steak with triple cooked chips and it was perfectly cooked and very tasty. On my reservation I had said it was my birthday and was welcomed with a card signed by all the staff which was a nice touch. Not cheap but worth every penny. Would definitely recommend.

Tasty meal, with great variety of menu options. Steak was cooked perfectly for medium rare. The truffle macaroni cheese was an unexpected delight. All staff were very friendly and prompt. We were seated in a booth in the restaurant which was great as it meant we could easily chat to each other. Noise levels were pleasant.

We were in London for a long weekend and staying in Shoreditch. Stumbled upon this restaurant on open table and liked the look and sound of it. We were a little early so had a drink in the bar area first. Staff were polite and friendly and the service overall was good. We shared the Chateaubriand which was lovely. Has a nice menu and fell about the place.

One of the better Sunday lunches in Islington. Fantastic duck fat roast potatoes, delicious gravy and sumptuous carrots and parsnips. The poussin was succulent, but tricky to eat off the bone and while I’m a big fan of mash on a roast it was a little too much ‘soft’, a 3rd or 4th roasty would have been much preferred. The addition of sprouts and cauliflower rounded out my five a day but they were a little bland and al dente and certainly didn’t compensate for my one piece of carrot. At two courses for £18 it’s a decent value roast compared with others in the area and the browny was delicious. Will probably return (the rest of the menu sounded tasty).

Had high expectations of restaurant to celebrate our Engagement the night before, however we were extremely disappointed with the service we received. Food was OK, but overpriced for what we got. Very inattentive staff on the night. We were sat in the corner of the room which we didn't mind, however we did not expect to be ignored for every round of service for example, once we sat down it was approx. 10 min's before we were asked if we wanted Water, then took 10 minutes to come and give some tap water, then another 10 minutes to ask if we want a drink, another 10 minutes for it to come and so on.... Our Main course was steak, I spilled sauce over the table so asked if I could get some more, this never came. When wanting the bill there was no one to ask the bill so we had to go up and pay ourselves. Not sure why Opentable (when booking) asks why we are visiting as when we put to celebrate engagement, you would half expect a mid range restaurant to acknowledge something like that. Very Disappointed overall.

The main reason for our disappointment at the restaurant was the wait for over half an hour from finishing our starter until our main arrived. We had already said we were under a little time pressure when we arrived, so this lengthy wait did not help. Unfortunately we were unable to enjoy our meal as a result.

Went for dinner here with two friends and was very impressed with the quality of the food here. It was far better than many much more expensive restaurants. The Atmosphere was nice and the staff were helpful (if a little
over-stretched; though it being Christmas time there were a few largish dinner parties there which might explain this).
Would definitely go here again and recommend the place to friends.

Excellent. Very good Sunday roast, though I will order an extra portion of roast potties next time - only got two each, which was# extra annoying considering how good they were. Three had beef, two of which enjoyed one found was a bit chewy and should have ordered it medium. One poussin which was lovely, very moist. Very good value too. Will go again for sure.

The food was terrible, what a waste of time and money.
The meat was average and the sides were bad, flavourless. Sincerely go somewhere else.
The environment doesn't exist, can't understand how this place still exists.
