The weekend set menu is one of the best value deals in London. Top quality food in a relaxed environment at a very reasonable price
Incredible food, great representation of some of Sweden’s most popular dishes. The only letdown was the table cloths, which I still don’t understand
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Location is really good as well. Just little expensive so only for special occasion.
I’m so disappointed. I loved Aquavit. We even celebrated my 40th here in a private room.
I keep going back convinced that The one bad experience was a one off.
But the last 2 visits have been really poor compared to the high standards you set yourselves.
Amazing food, dog friendly, well knowledgeable staff.
Faultless service and wonderful food and ambiance.
Amazing food and service! Will come back soon
Excellent service, great value for money and wonderful decor!
excellent food one of the nicest monk fish dishes I have ever had but really quite pricey !
Very quick and easy service; delicious food; wonderful ambience; pre-theatre menu is value for money.
We had a pre theatre dinner but chose to eat a la carte and were not disappointed. All dishes were delightful and beautifully presented.
Excellent food and drinks in lovely surroundings with excellent service.
Excellent restaurant in St. James’s Market a few minutes from Piccadilly Circus. Delicious, beautifully presented dishes from the Nordic countries, in particular Sweden. The meatballs and Beef Rydberg never disappoint. Very helpful and professional service. As repeat guests we were offered a glass of Prosecco. Nice touch! Beautiful dining room with high quality Scandinavian tableware. Very reasonable prices for a Michelin starred restaurant in central London. I can highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent food, especially the herring. Lovely drinks too
Great service. Ordinary food. However the dessert of Bird nest is quite something! Very good!
Service started smoothly but soon hit a traffic jam that led to us arriving late to the theater.
The food is amazing but I was bothered endlessly by the staff cutting me off all the time asking 'is everything okay... or can I remove this plate or do this" This restaurant has always received 5 stars from me but please educate your staff on proper service etiquettes. I never managed to finish telling a story...
PS. its Christmas... it's in poor taste not to have any Christmas decorations inside your venue.
Food was lovely especially the meatballs and beef. The place is classy and well decorated. Only downsides are they got our starter order wrong (but rectified quickly) and the price which is in my opinion a little high. Would recommend though.
Great food, lovely atmosphere!
We were satisfied with our visit to the restaurant. We ordered the oyster and pre-theatre menu. It was one of the best oysters that I had in a while. The non-alcoholic cocktail was also exceptional. Most of the service had a Personal touch. Very attentive staff.
In terms of improvement, the bread basket was placed in front of us without much explanation to the types of bread so I had to enquire about it. I wish this could have been explained earlier. The Swedish meatball was slightly too salty.
Apart from these minor slips, I was satisfied with my experience at Aquavit.
I absolute loved this restaurant. Beautiful setting, amazing food and great service. I will definitely come back and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. It is pricey but well worth it.
Forgot about the birthday of my wife. Aside from that the food is delicious and the space is beautiful.
You have to like the venue and we were ready to go with the flow. Everything that was fish or seafood was very fresh and delicious - but not really elaborate. The venison was cooked perfectly, the sauce was nowhere near as refined as one would expect for a one Michelin star.
Service was nice but totally lacking for that class of a restaurant. Staff was more busy to chat and have fun than to worry about customers.
Top-tier international restaurant
Nice ambience and food was tasty but the portions were so small that I have to say it is not good value
We specifically requested for express lunch menu during reservation. But they claimed menu not available. Service was slow and unfriendly. Food was good. Lunch took more than an hour : mostly just waiting to be served.
This was our second time at this restaurant (the first time was amazing) but unfortunately the experience was very different. Food great. Service terrible. So many issues with the service, lack of attention. It was after a show and it felt that they couldn’t wait to close the restaurant. Terrible...terrible..terrible!
Go for the Herring and the Monkfish. Really good service during our dinner. Not cheap but good experience.
Really great Scandinavian food with excellent service to finish it off. Pre-theatre menu was fab and a really good price.
Be wary however that the cheapest wine on the menu is £42 so it’s only for special occasions!
Would go back for one though!!
Pre theatre meal. It was fab. Staff were excellent.
It is always very good.
The staff are very friendly but very inattentive. We had about four different waiters. Once The food order is placed they tend to forget about one altogether. Managed to muddle up our coffee order and forgot to bring milk. Not a big deal, it happens. But when I reminded the girl who served it and requested some, again, it never arrived. I’m only pointing this out because I think it is symptomatic of the way they run the front of house. Everything else is great.
enjoyed the meat balls/service/ambiance etc and exotic flavours. It was expensive though.
Bad service and okay food, wouldnt go back - was for a business lunch
Waiter was unbelievably rude over and over again.
Beautiful restaurant with great value pre theatre set menu. It was quiet when we arrived but busy by the time we headed to the theatre - 2mins walk away. Fab service and delicious Scandinavian food - highly recommend
I treated my mum to a lunch and we were both so impressed with the refreshing and interesting plates we ate. Aquavit is beautiful, modern and delicious with helpful and friendly staff in an easy location near to Piccadilly circus. I would recommend and return.
Amazing food, amazing wines, amazing service and of course an amazing dessert !!!
