Service was terrible. We were waited by a blond foreign waitress who was unapologetically rude throughout the service. The peak was when she agressivelky removed the dessert and forks from our hands whilst we were eating it, and dropped the bill on the table telling us know we had come to 1h and 30min of reservation, and that we must leave for others to come.
Besides the service, everything was great and food was delicious as per usual.

I was forced to be seated downstairs because they didn’t have a table for us that could accommodate a stroller and then they refused to let me keep the stroller as my son is only months old and can’t sit in a the babies chair. I had to hold my son while dining the entire time. The food was below average. The only good thing was the dessert. I will not go back again for sure.

Definitely up there in my favourite places to eat in London. The food and the ambience is amazing. No words for the truffle burger and cookie dessert - to die for! Love everything about this place!

horrible noise level which totally ruined the experience, I get it that you need some ambiance but on a Monday night wen you can barely talk to your friend it is just nuisance not ambiance. Service and food great though even if a bit pricy for the size of the portions....

Lovely looking place. The food took an hour, while we sat watching all other tables that arrived after us be served and the service team didn’t seem too bothered about it. Some food was very delicious, some food was very bland and unmemorable. Server and host were welcoming and nice upon out arrival.

Really delicious diverse food, great portions for sharing a bunch of small plates, and always delightful service. I come back here everytime I'm in London and have never been close to disappointed. Shrimp tacos, torched cauliflower, miso aubergine and milk chocolate cookies.

I asked the waitress whether the chicken was on the bone or chicken breast. She replied by saying it was halal. I found this offensive, I'm not a Muslim and didn't ask that question.

Absolutely loved the food and cocktails, it was delicious and inventive. Staff was sweet and attentive! My only "complaint" was that the music was a little too loud for conversation, but the food surely made up for it.

I have used NAC several times in the past and been satisfied. However this time the main dishes were awful. A steak requested to be rare was seriously overdone, and the pulled lamb had a sauce that was horrid. The response to complaints was very grudging.

Noise levels remain high making conversation difficult.

Been there already, the food is always great, only this time I took the poached eggs with bacon and bernaise(?) and bacon was hard and sauce looked like it has been waiting so air dried it a bit. The rest of the food was nice as usual. Italian waitress looked confused all the time and took a bit to notice us when we needed help or wanted to pay.

Seated next to the kitchen in the basement. Constant back and forth by staff with large trays in hand. The lady serving us was new and had no idea about menu or items or what items on menu meant. I don’t see how my experience of the venue being seated in the basement should be to the same value as someone sat upstairs.. issue with bill.. not sure how the inflated value came to the amount charged.. need to take this up with venue... overall crap

Dear Tamoor, Thank you for your recent visit and taking the time to write a review. We expect all our staff to know the food and drink offer menu fully and while your server was new, she had an experienced waitress on hand to train her at the time. Apologies if you didn't get all the help you wanted - work in progress. Also, a shame you didn't like the basement area, it has a very strong style which isn't to everyone's tastes and we do appreciate that. We hope to welcome you back soon!

Been here a few times and really enjoyed it but seems to have gone downhill. Our cauliflower was watery and pretty cold, chicken was overdone and most of the dishes were fairly bland. Highlight was definitely the cookie and soft serve desert that was still great. And with no warning or time to finish our drinks or order coffee, we were told our table was needed immediately and were handed our bill. There were other free tables in the restaurant but we were not even offered to sit there to have coffee.

Thank you very much for your recent visit and taking the time to write a review. Such a shame the food didn't hit the mark this time. We have taken your feedback and are closely monitoring our dishes to ensure they are of the usual standard. We offer tables up to 4 guests for 1.5hrs at lunch and 2hrs at dinner, but we do try to let you stay longer if possible. You should have had a polite request made at the 2hr point, so please accept our apologies there. I hope to welcome you back soon! NAC

I booked a table for 2 people and also put a note that I needed a table with a pram space. When I arrived I was told that “oh I thought it was two you and baby????? “ I was then put in a table squeezing my pram which was not a good experience because the other table next to me was sitting over my pram 🙄

NAC (North Audley Cantine)
Responded on September 17, 2019

Dear guest, Sorry for the misunderstanding of your booking. While babies might not eat the same amount as adults, they usually take up the same space or often more with the pram included. For this reason, we would count a child as a person and take your booking for 3 persons. Best wishes, NAC

Currently my favourite casual option in London. Everything is perfect and the menu changes often enough for it not to get repetitive.
