Although I booked through open table when I got to the restaurant it was closed!

Unfortunately, despite booking through this website, the restaurant was closed when we arrived! Luckily there were lots of great restaurants close by in Exmouth Market!
So, I am unable to give a review other than to say that if anyone has a confirmed booking, surely the polite thing to do is to contact that person to let me know that the booking could not be honoured as the restaurant was going to be shut? Simple customer service.

Went with a date after ballet at Sadler's Wells. Front of house staff was a bit flustered as a colleague hadn't turned up, so the ambience was a bit Fawlty Towers like, with the ladies being out of order so interesting experience navigating the loos, very French. Nevertheless the food was utterly delicious and I would definitely go there again.

Great discovery. Super food and service with a stylistic French twist at great value. And just a hop from Sadler's Wells. Perfect.

This French bistro is a gem of a find near Sadler's Wells and Angel, a little apart from madding crowd near the tube. Perfect for pre-theatre with an ever-changing seasonal menu and fresh specials of the day. I love it for the fish dishes and my daughter loves it for the chicken dishes and the choices would suit all dietary dispositions, with the expected French classics thrown in. Reasonal prices, friendly service in a cosy little space, would highly recommend.

Interesting evening. The sole waiter manfully tried to stay on top of the work as he had been let down by a colleague. Food was ok

Fast service as we were going to the theatre for a matinee performance. Several others turned up without reservations and were turned away sowould recommend booking in advance to get in there before the pre theatre crowd book. Service was the best thing. I just had a main - the steak and it was delicious

A first time visit pre-theatre and we had a great meal. The staff were very friendly and helpful and extremely well-organised to serve and feed several pre-theatre goers so quickly. Will definitely go again.

This is a wonderful place to eat before going to Sadler's Wells - about a 5 minute walk away. It's cozy and friendly and the service is gated to get you to the performance on time. The menu offers a daily 2 or 3 course special (3 choices for each course) for a very reasonable price. Otherwise, the regular menu is nice as well. Everything is cooked properly (even boneless chicken breast was wonderfully juicy). Highly recommended.

Mize en Bouche is a cosy informal venue with delicious French cuisine. It offers a good value pre-theatre menu convenient for the nearby Sadlers Wells theatre. But make sure you check your Open Table online booking with the restaurant itself because it's a popular place and their reservation systems don't always match, as happened when I was trying to go there!

We had a very nice meal. The staff were friendly and attentive, and made a great effort to accommodate a dietary requirement.

Having booked the restaurant through top table and received an email to confirm the booking the restaurant called us 10 min before the booked time to tell there was no room. They said they had only just received the booking !! At the time we were walking from the Angel station to the restaurant having travelled up from Sussex. On our insistence they agreed to find us a table which turned out to be a small garden table put in a very small space. It was a shame as we were off to a show at Sadlers Wells which was a Christmas present

Went to Miz en Bouche pre Sadler's Wells. They had messed up the booking time but managed to give us a small table, which was very small and uncomfortable, but apart from that the food and service were really good and I would definitely go back.

Did not actually eat here as they put us on a table right next to the door which was very cold and although nobody else was there would not move us, so we left

Helpful staff in difficult circumstances as our booking did not arrive on the system until after our booked time so no table was available. They accommodated us and gave us a good meal
