    We really enjoyed our first meal here. We have been meaning to dine with you for a while, and this was the perfect opportunity to come and visit you. Food was amazing, the staff were incredibly helpful and polite and the whole atmosphere and music was 10/10 for ambiance, great job. We hope to visit you again soon for a tasting menu. Thanks for the great hospitality 👍 Kind regards, Paula Hillis

    The food was alright but nothing exceptional - it was a bit underwhelming compared to what was advertised through social media. The flavours were not out of ordinary and under-seasoned: best dish of the day were the raw oysters. The crab on crab toast was stone cold, whilst the toast was luke warm with a shellfish sauce that could go really fishy and bad when it is served cold. I have no idea why you decided to put in a lot of minced carrots with the steak tartare (perhaps to cut cost) but it was too sweet for a starter. The service was poor : at first we got a really nice waiter and sommelier, but during the meal our waiter was changed to a Black waiter* who kept staring at me with such intensity it was uncomfortable. Then he didn't ask us how the food was , didn't say anything -simply took our dishes away and flung the dessert menu on our table. He looked seriously unhappy serving us. We were about to order mains however given his attitude our mood was killed and simply got a dessert and left. The funny thing is we did notice how different he treated our table and the table sat on our left and right. He was smiling, friendly, and having a conversation. The Asian girl* later who served us dessert was very nice to us and explained what was in our dessert and maintained professional service with a welcoming sense of warmth. *Please note that the mention of race was not here to discriminate but to help you identify your waiters and to improve on your service. Overall we felt neglected throughout our meal compared to other tables, especially with our late service of food compared to other tables, and that no attention was paid to our table at all. We also noticed that the restaurant was not very booked at all, and we found it quite awkward to be sat in between tables so close that we could hear every single conversation. I would not recommend this restaurant to our friends - it is definitely over-hyped and perhaps it is as rough as the location.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!! Place never disappoints. Each course was wonderful. Decided to have the oysters to start, got to say, probably the fattest oysters I've ever had. Gorgeous. Was slightly wary of the lamb offal, but it was basically a meatball and the gravy with it was delightful. The roast chicken was unreal as was the Peaches and plum dessert. The apple tart tatin was fab. Couldn't fault a thing. All washed down with a fantastic English Rosé Fizz expertly chosen by the superb sommelier. Donyour tastebuds a favour, get yourself booked in.

    This place doesn’t miss!!!! They are always very nice and welcoming to us. Staff are very kind and extremely knowledgeable about the restaurant and menu. The food is amazing every-time I visit , you can tell by the taste of the food that they use quality ingredients and it’s worth the price. They are regularly updating the menu so you get to try different things each time which is exciting. Also they are phenomenal with accommodations , whether that be leaving an ingredient out of a dish or moving you inside when the weather is looking back ( I didn’t even have to ask). Anytime I have the opportunity I visit and it’s become my favourite restaurant.

    I tried Allegra based on a recommendation from Nuno Mendes and I thought every aspect of the experience was first rate. What drew me to try the restaurant was an impeccably assembled wine list. What came as more of a pleasant surprise was that every single morsel of food was delicious. Lovely room, service both efficient and delightful and not your every day hotel restaurant which contributed to the happy surprise. Will i go again? Absolutely.

    Beautiful restaurant with lovely garden to relax in. Service was very attentive, staff knowledgeable and friendly. Food was outstanding, though to our taste the scallop and duck were slightly underdone. Otherwise inventive and tasty.Wine was delicious. We had a glass of Poiully-Fume and the Californian Pinot Noir. Excellent choice for a special occasion.

    Fabulous as always.. took my children and parents this time and they all had an amazing time. My normally reserved parents had the tasting menu at my request (more insistence!) and they loved it! They particularly loved the deserts Aaron!! Thanks also for knocking up the special desert for the kids, they totally loved it! Amazing friendly service as always and Cherry looked after us incredibly well! Wine choice as ever by my new favourite man Sait the Sommelier was outstanding and even shut my fussy dad up! Amazing work team and keep it up.! Will be returning very very shortly

    Was excited to try Allegra on a recent short break to London given their inclusion in the National Restaurant Awards top 100 UK restaurants so booked in for their Wednesday evening tasting menu as the price seemed good value. We reserved the counter as also enjoy counter dining and watching chefs prepare. On arrival we enjoyed a lovely cocktail and lager on the terrace as the sun was setting. Service felt slow and the time between dishes that came from the kitchen (as opposed to the counter) felt too long and most arrived lukewarm. Nothing particularly memorable or standout or accomplished in the cooking. Snacks were nice, there was a fairly delicious scallop dish and the pre-dessert was tasty but the rest of the meal particularly the fish and meat courses were such a let-down. Felt like the FOH staff were mainly focusing on tables further round the restaurant. The chefs at the counter didn't really engage except to serve the snacks and dessert courses. I appreciate that were in service plus there seemed to be a very loud and chatty diner on his final courses when we arrived so perhaps they were trying to have a break from that! I hate to be critical in the current climate and appreciate that the kitchen could well have been short staffed but also want to be honest that both food and service left us cold.

    Sunday lunch. Fine service food and vine.Food not to inspiring and the portions was rather small and you have to pay if you like some “sides” and that’s sudden been necessary with the prices you charges. Coming back again? Think we will choose another alternative.

    Food and service were great. Lovely cocktails and the blood pudding mini burgers were awesome! We booked an outside table (terrace) and the only downside was the lack of ambience (no music, pretty quiet, views aren't amazing). Inside decor and ambience looked great so if you book, eat inside!

    Had their excellent 10 course tasting menu (inventive largely seafood-based menu, packed with oodles of umami flavour - the pistachio choux, crab, watercress veloute were highlights). Further discounted through a deal if you stay with the Stratford hotel downstairs (must register when booking the hotel). Staff were especially attentive and friendly. Great sommelier also suggested some fantastic wine pairings. Not to mention, laid back and stylish interiors (and lots of plants!). Also rather under advertised is their expansive rooftop wildflower gardens with beautiful views of East London was icing on the cake. Definitely recommend as a special night out or with small group of friends.

    Second visit Alelgra. Unfortunately the service was terrible this time. Despite eating early in the evening as the restaurant filled up the delay between courses for the Wednesday tasting menu got progressively worse. Staff did not acknowledge an issue with service. There was clearly not enough staff that night. We were not offered drinks as we finished them. When I did ask to speak to the manager and express my concerns it was not dealt with in a satisfactory way. Poor service ruined what was a nice meal, food was nice and all presented. Dessert was a bit of a let down though. There are plenty of other paces offering equally good food with much better service than this. We will not be going back anytime soon. Shame as this s a local restaurant for us. I did write to the restaurant directly afterwards to share my feedback, but have nothing back from them.

    The food was superb. Whilst it was perfectly understandable that outside dining was not possible because of the wind, why the inside was gloomy and almost funereal, because all the blinds were drawn , was harder to comprehend. We asked if the blind at our table could be raised, our request was declined.

    I booked this a little while ago for our Mum’s 60th birthday after some extensive research and much consideration, and we were not disappointed. I really wanted a fine dining experience without the pretension and that is exactly what we got. We arrived a little early and had an aperitif on the Terrace prior to our restaurant sitting, which I had mentioned in my booking was something we might like to do if they could accompany us, and they were more than happy to do this. The signature cocktails were fantastic and very well balanced. We opted for the Chef’s Selection tasting menu and every course was amazing. The attention to detail and precision of the cooking and plating was as good if not better than any Michelin star restaurant we have visited. The staff were attentive without being intrusive and very knowledgeable about the food being served. Polite and friendly so we felt relaxed and able to enjoy our meal. The sommelier took time to find out our wine preferences and helped us choose the best matches for the dishes on the menu, his choices were reasonably priced with no hint of him trying to push the most expensive bottles. I’m useless with names, so sorry I’m not able to individually praise the staff we interacted with as they really do deserve recognition. My Mum was presented with an additional dessert as a birthday treat which was a lovely touch. The decor inside and out is elegant without being stuffy, chic and contemporary, very well considered. I will definitely be looking to visit again in the future and I’ll be surprised if this restaurant doesn’t soon receive a Michelin star, as it certainly deserves it.
