The food and service is very good, but some of the prices were ridiculous. £5 for an iced coffee? Asparagus was highlighted as a seasonal special offering. While I knew that the large scallops and asparagus would be £29, I had no inkling that the dish would consist of a few scallops and. ONE or TWO stalks of asparagus, thinly shaved. Insulting diners like that is not a good idea.

Service was good yet the food was average - the beef that I had was a medium rare but it is very chewy. Honestly nothing special which I don’t expect from HIX.

Disappointing. I had booked (party of 5) into HIX for a pre-theatre dinner (recommended by one of the party), we arrived early at 5.15pm (table booked for 5.30) to ensure we were away by 6.45 pm to see a play. We all went for the simple set menu and the restaurant was very quiet, well staffed but obviously had a single large party that the kitchen was catering for. We had simple snacks (brought quickly) but the starters were much slower. We warned the staff (3 different members) that we had to leave by 6.45pm, they listened, went to the kitchen but did not update us. Eventually at 6.30pm I told one of the staff that we would be leaving in 5 minutes with or without our main courses... they promptly arrived and we bolted down our food (or left half of it) and we rushed out of the HIX at 6.55pm - just making the play. The play Lehmann Trilogy was excellent, sadly the service at HIX was not!

Our favourite restaurant when in London. We love the ambience, and most importantly the food! The pork scratchings are the best I have ever had in a restaurant and the popcorn cockles are just delicious! Always a good choice on the menu, using interesting and locally sourced ingredients. The Credit Crunch Ice cream is a brilliant idea- and the closest thing to my mother’s chocolate sauce I have ever had!

We were shown to our table very efficiently. But unfortunately we were seated right next to the toilet! I find this rather odd because the restaurant was very quiet. I did ask to be moved and the staff happy obliged. The service was quite slow, the food was very tasty and made with good quality produce. Portion sizes were small, but I guess it’s what’s to be expected when you order from the set menu. The price was pretty reasonable, but the drinks were very expensive!

The food is always very good here. Based on British ingredients, with a strong seafood selection, the food has interesting ingredients to lift the food from good food to something much more interesting.
The ‘nibbles’ available prior to the food include the best pork crackling I have tasted, and th eco kale popcorn is delicious.
I always have difficulty in deciding what to eat, there are so many things I would like to try!
I love the fact that one of the puddings is the ‘credit crunch ice cream’, cheap, but the nearest thing I have ever had to our family homemade hot chocolate sauce - delicious!

We were assisted by three staff, all of whom were bright, attentive and confident. The recommendation and endorsement of our choice was perfect. Service was clean and unobtrusive, with no pressure to finish fast but at the same time no delays. The food was well presented and very tasty. I would recommend HIX to anyone looking for good food in a relaxed atmosphere.

Excellent food, good service - a treat as expensive for Sunday lunch but worth the effort and money. Delicious tasty food, roast beef a must, big portions, huge Yorkshire pudding. Ordered Prawn cocktail, didn't realise cucumber would be chopped through lettuce so couldn't eat as allergic but apart from that will be back.

Food was excellent and even a great choice for vegetarians. An interesting place and a nice and secluded despite the central Soho location. However, service was somewhat slow. Still a great choice but not one if you’re in a rush!

Generally really like HIX Soho - but was very, very quite (school hols?) and food didn't seem quite up to usual standards - fine, rather than great.

Welcoming staff, very well cooked and presented food, creative wine list with 500ml carafe option, great cocktails and they acknowledged out birthday with a truffle treat at the end of the meal. Beautiful interior, comfortable and stylish seating and overall a great experience. Would definitely recommend to others. The pre-theatre menu was great.

Mother’s day Sunday lunch was lovely. Great food & service only slightly let down by the over-priced Pouilly Fume which didn’t live up to the name. Better off choosing the more modestly priced Muscadet or Sauvignon. Will be back tho.

Very noisy, warm & dark in the dining area.
However, the food was delicious & well-executed, plus waiting staff were excellent.
We were not served the cockle popcorn, but they did not charge for this.
However, I’ve been advised that I missed a real treat - so will come back & head to the bar area downstairs (for more moreish cocktails & those yummy bar snacks)!
We used a 50% off discount card from TimeOut, which made it exceptional value for money.
