Mediocre food, rushed service, lost reservation, and an £85 bill. Tom’s Kitchen is not what it once was.
It was a reasonably good meal but certainly not outstanding. if it was right on my doorstep I would consider going back but it is not a restaurant that I would go out of my way to return to
Very friendly staff and nice place.
The starters and risotto were delicious, but the steak was overcooked and a bit chewy.
Professional and passionate
Great food but it is always so cold in the restaurant!
Une épaule d’agneau cuite à la perfection avec une réduction de jus, vin et balsamique qu’on aurait mangée à la cuillère ! Tout cela dans une ambiance très sympathique ! On y reviendra !
On a adoré!
Really good food, very spicy Bloody Mary’s and indulgent desserts. Also, for a Saturday at peak time, very accommodating of us bringing along our pram and patient whilst we added more and more people to the booking.
We’ve been here before and love the place, though this was the first time with a group. Gets a bit noisy so we were shouting a bit to be heard, and the wait staff had difficulty hearing us, but everything came out as expected and there were not mistakes at least.
There were a lot of good vegetarian and vegan options for some of the group too.
Booked lunch for the set menu offer advertised on open table but when we were arrived told it wasn't available. No apologies or alternatives offered, brunch only (which is very expensive and limited).
The Open Table deal at Tom’s Kitchen is excellent value. Good food and a buzzy atmosphere
Great atmosphere and service. Food was delicious, great for groups or solo dining. Highly recommend!
Extremely flavoursome brunch in a relaxed setting
Excellent food and nice atmosphere.
Went on New Year’s Day with the kids. Food was okay, nothing special. Pancakes (days special) were more like a thick sponge cake rather than pancakes
Having been to Tom’s kitchen many times in the past, this was a hugely disappointing meal. We went for breakfast on a weekday. They’ve changed the menu in the last year, made it more expensive and poorer quality. The food was cold and certainly not worth what we pod. There was a single waiter serving the whole floor of the restaurant and he was clearly stretched. I doubt I’d go back having really enjoyed my previous experiences, you can see they are just trying to save money and cut corners
A great lunch with old friends on a good open table deal
I found the prices were expensive for what I was being served. £14 for a Eggs Benedict where the eggs, muffins and plates are arriving cold is definitely not value for money.
I just hope the other dishes on the menu were not like this as myself and my friends order both arrived cold.
We had the 3 course deal and it was quite good. Recommended
Food was very good, service was abysmal. Not bad enough to refuse to pay the service charge, but bad enough to have discussed that as an option. Will not be back
Really enjoyed the food here. And the service was friendly and professional. When there was a problem it was swiftly remedied.
Food worth the price we paid on open table. I wouldn't say it was worth the price on the regular menu. However they make their money back by hugely overcharging on wine
Service was slow and inattentive, but the kitchen staff were on top form which made up for it. The breakfast is second to none!
Great neighbourhood restaurant - we all ordered off the prix fixe menu and the food was delicious. I had the mushroom risotto, very good but my friends ordered the pork belly and it was even better. I also recommend the molten chocolate cake for desert - so good! Look forward to going back again soon.
Second time here and not as good service as the first time which was a little disappointing. We were sat upstairs which isn’t the nicest vibe, staff forgot about us, were confused, sent over drinks that we didn’t order. When I asked if there were any for any forms of potatoes served I was told no but there were chips on the menu......then told fries aren’t potatoes.....which was a worry.
This is a place I really wanted to see! I adore Tom’s cooking. But if you like to have a nice evening for two or four people, it might be a bit crowded.
This is the second or third time I have been to this location, this time on a Monday evening. Quiet neighborhood and not too many diners. It can be loud later in the week and on weekends, but my niece and I had the entire evening to talk and laugh and enjoy the fabulous food in the quiet, off hours, environment. Always a joy to go to Tom's Kitchen!
Kid-friendly with amazing service ... and the food is divine. Delicious comfort food classics done to a next-level standard and a few dishes with a twist! This is a place that will suit almost any occasion!
Incredibly noisy restaurant so felt like we were shouting across a table for two. Food was great, although the lamb was probably slightly overdone (medium rather than medium rare) and the venison underdone (served very rare). Service was fine but seemed disorganised with approx four different people involved in serving us and therefore asking the same questions repeatedly and still forgetting to bring the bread we ordered.
Good food, could be a fantastic experience with a bit more staff coordination and a setting that can absorb the noise a bit better.
We were sitted upstairs where we were completed forgotten by the staff. We had to ask the waiter for our juices and our mains. As regards our mains, the waiter seemed to have forgotten them completely and he came back later to tell us that there was an issue with the kitchen. They deducted the coffees from our bill. We have visited Tom’s Kitchen Chelsea several times but this time the servise was completely disappointing.
Lunch fixed price menu very good value. Cheese starter and fish main were pefect. House cocktail included the price. Personally I would have preferred a glass of wine. Coffee was so good, even the decaf. Pleasant staff.
Our meals, both the appetizers and entrees, were excellent but...there were too many service gaffes for a restaurant with this reputation. The kitchen and servers didn’t seem on the same page. Especially annoying we’re the loud and frequent cries (screams) of “Service please” from the kitchen. It’s a shame to say but this is a poorly managed restaurant.
Fantastic British food. Dishes were all beautiful and very good value. Staff and setting great too.
The lamb shoulder was fall off the bone, melt in your mouth lamb. Very tasty! Service was friendly but sharp. Would highly recommend
The food is excellent. This is why we returned for our second time, this time on a Saturday hoping for better service. There was a string of issues including missed and late orders, cold food, audible swearing from the kitchen and unfortunately poor attitude from our server which included abrupt interactions and condescension. The latter point was the most disappointing. There was an effort to compensate and that was appreciated, but I would have preferred a good meal that I would have happily paid for. I would definitely return and recommend this restaurant but I would hope for far better service next time.
Great service and delicious food. This place is consistently brilliant.
A nice buzzy feel and the food was good and not expensive
Service at first felt like they were trying to rush us, but it quickly relaxed. Waiter was great at suggesting dishes to share, we had the Côte de Boeuf and the 7 hour lamb, both were delicious.
Great food. Lovely atmosphere. We went there on a gloriously sunny day, Kate was funny and insightful. A lunch to remember.
Went for breakfast. I had a cappuccino which felt like it had come out of a cheap machine - the sort you might get at a petrol station. We then ordered eggs benedict, shakshouka, and baked turkish eggs.
My eggs benedict were not too bad, although the muffin they were served on was far too toasted making it quite dry. The portion was small for £14.
The worst was the shakshouka which resembled nothing of the sort. It was some tomato salsa, a slice of aubergine, and a poached egg all atop a muffin (same as my benedict) and topped with hollandaise sauce. Only a mad person would consider this a shakshouka, and the idea of the combination of hollandaise and spicy tomato makes my stomach turn.
Service was fine but a little incompetent.
Overall, I brought my friends here and to be honest, I felt pretty embarrassed to have done so.
My first time was very pleasant and I enjoyed a long lunch with a friend. Good food and very good service.
Poor food, awful service; too noisy you can’t hear what you are talking.
