The staff working here were lovely, it was slightly slow but under stable as it was very busy. Didn’t mind this either as the staff were so nice and friendly .
Food was great. Wine by the bottle a bit expensive .
Only negative was it was incredibly loud in there, had to almost shout to hear each other .
Overall, food great, staff great.

Pre-theatre dining at 6pm. The restaurant was not busy. Two mistakes were made with the order, firstly the side vegetables were forgotten and then a salad was brought out. There are obviously communication issues between the waitress who took the order and the kitchen/waiter who brought it.
The quality of the food was OK but nothing to write home about. I (unusually) had a burger but the menu description does not tell you exactly what it contains so if you don't want the full monty containing ketchup and mayonnaise etc I suggest you specify. The chocolate fondant was good.
It is dark for reading the menu but that's what the torch on a smart phone is for.

Despite having my reservation confirmed and travelling into London for a special meal we were told on arrival that they could not accommodate us. Why didn’t they inform us prior to leaving home ?
Appalling customer service.

Ingredients were of good quality, but the cooking leaves much to be desired. Food was not worth the price. The restaurant was so dark I could not read the menu and so noisy I had to shout to be heard over the din. Overall an unsatisfying evening out.

A nice breakfast place, not much natural light and the staff weren't the friendliest and had to be reminded several times about missing pieces from our order.

The service was not great and when I got home and looked at the bill, I had been charged for water - which as it was tap, I found unaccpetable, but my fault for not checking the bill at the time.

This is firmly established as an institution for us, and the food, drinks and service are excellent.

My only complaint is that it is really loud in there at peak times, so it is almost impossible to have a conversation over dinner. I used to come here for late night croque monsieur and don’t remember it being so hard to hear. Could just be my age!

It was really loud. And we felt a little cramped in as the restaurant puts tables close together. Service was excellent. Starters good. Mains were average and second choice as first choice not available. Booked through open table but we had to ask to be moved to the restaurant which I found perplexing. One time experience but good people.

I appreciate you want to create ambiance with the level of lighting but when one has to pick up the table candle in order to read the menu you may have gone a tad too far!!

The service was horrible. There were two waitresses for the whole place and they messed up the order, the bill reflected the mistake which we would’ve been overcharged for and thankfully I caught it. It took forever to even get the bill in the first place.

Arriving at 20.00 to find the only two restrooms for women without light and toilet paper is disturbing. When the waiters were told they said the new about it and apologized.
The restaurant is a Soho House establishment but the staff new little about the member ship credit, expiring yesterday

Excellent all round - went for Sunday brunch and it wasn't too busy but there was a nice atmosphere and the décor was lovely. Staff were friendly and efficient. There was a great choice of different breakfast/brunch/lunch dishes and the food was delicious. It would have been good if the waiting staff had mentioned when asking if I wanted toast with my omelette that there would be an extra charge for that, but can't blame them for upselling a bit after the last 18 months. I will definitely remember it for future trips to London.

Service was very slow and at times surly- which was a shame but we had come for the outdoors Soho vibe and the street scene made up for that. I wouldn't hurry back to be served indoors- which is saddening as I used to be a very regular visitor

Our waitress was lovely but the lady who sat us along with a few of the staff were more interested in saying hello to people they knew on the street, no welcome and a lack of basic customer service skills. Seating was hectic. Thankfully waitress and food were good.

Compact menu offers French bistro type meals and small plates like muscles and fry’s well cooked, fresh and very tasty. Atmosphere is excellent and relaxed in the heart of vibrant Soho. My favourite place for relaxed afternoon drinks and a late lunch, usually with live music wafting through the background chatte.

The staff members were welcoming, friendly and helpful.
The service was very good. The food was great.
At times, the piano music was too loud for me.
Otherwise, we had a wonderful time.
Thank you all.
