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.
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.
I went for breakfast and the food was really nice, it’s a come back for sure.
Worst Brunch ever had! The apple mint juice never arrived. The pancake was like a rubber and so hard to cut. Returned it once and the restaurant was gracious enough to offer another one but the next one was no better than the first one. Decided not to even try anything.
We had a great family dinner here whilst visiting London. Great food and service and lots of options to make the kids feel special too
Tom Aitkens is an expert in sustainable fishing as well as responsible restauranteur habits .. and. his gorgeous restaurant exemplifies this general philosophy. Quality rules always
What happened to Tom’s!!!! It used to be great. Now the food is mediocre and the staff are confused. All our dishes ( mains and appetisers) arrived at different times, the waiter/ waitress didn’t know the names of everything, my steak with bernaise sauce on the side arrived as a fairly poor cut of meat with peppercorn sauce all over it, appetisers quite small. On the basis of what used to be a solid neighbourhood restaurant, this is now a fairly poor experience. Very disappointing
Coming off a recent refurbishment this long term favourite has lost its charm and quality. The new menu is lackluster and over priced, the portions are very small and the value and quality is just not what it used to be.
Menu presented at the restaurant didn’t match what was listed on OpenTable. Rude waiter, had to repeat order twice and they still got it wrong. Female manager was rude asking me to move our buggy when it wasn’t even in the way. Wasn’t offered water when other patrons around us where. Just shocking service overall, I’ve been dozens of times to this restaurant but today was the last. A really bad Father’s Day breakfast indeed. Shocking!
Inspired menu, late table so restaurant quiet but enjoyed food and service
Great staff, great food! Really enjoyable evening at Tom's Kitchen! We will be back!
Very good restaurant overall on a visit after RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Good ambience & decor. Enjoyed drinks at the bar (wife’s Aperol Spritz best she’s ever had) and cocktail & wine later.
Bread tasty & starters (mushrooms) unusual but delicious as were the mains and desserts). Daughter loved her jumbo prawns & for fish/chips
Excellent friendly and prompt service without being intrusive. Nice little touch for anniversary at end (free prosecco & a sorbet/ice cream).
My only criticism which prevented 5 stars was that the chateaubriand (400gm @£50) for two could’ve been a bit bigger. It was beautifully cooked and delicious (as was the veg, etc) but we wanted a little bit more!
Change that and 5 state easily.
The food was excellent but the order of serving dishes to share needs a little thought. Also plates should be hot!
Staff were helpful and cheerful house wine was good quality and value
Would definitely recommend for a casual lunch. Buzzy / noisy ambience and an interesting menu.
Food was overall good.
Starters excellent. Disappointed with quail main. Would have more starters to share next time.
Service was good. Wine choice was good. Atmosphere was good. Prices are fair.
I have been to Toms kitchen many times and would return.
This time was a treat for my 15year old’s birthday. A tiny recognition or mention would have been a nice touch but alas did not occur. -shame.
The white wine was warm which the waiter said was because London could not cope with the hot weather..
I have been to the restaurant several times prior to the new menu and the food was great. Now the portion sizes for what you pay are very ( very ) small. The waiter did mention when we ordered something about tapas .. but if it is a tapas menu then its a very (very )expensive one for what you get ..
Lovely, interesting, very good quality food and amazing service! Was just a bit loud
Nice welcome but after that service was slow and disjointed.
Food was too detailed with not enough flavour, too many different kitchens at play in one menu. Service was very slow. Took us an hour to receive dessert and to pay.
Acoustics were also bad for a table of 5
