Normally I really enjoy eating at BSK, however noted their Vegetarian selection was very poor to non-existent this time. Could be down to a change in the menu due to the pandemic of course.

Hence deducted a star from a 4-star rating for Food. Recommended but not for Vegetarians or Vegans.

Really disappointed to be honest, the service was slow and inattentive. The waiter got two things wrong, firstly he orders a whole bottle of wine instead of just a single glass. Then he hadn't checked whether my friend wanted beef or chicken roast, which meant after 20 minutes he still hadn't put the order in. Finally arrived, my chicken and quinoa salad was almost in edible. It was completely dry, and basically just a bowl of kale with a few squeezes of cold avocado purée in it and a desiccated piece of chicken. Luckily my friends meal was better, but I was quite embarrassed to have invited her to the restaurant. I remember the Bread Street Kitchen being so much better in previous years. £26 for roast beef dinner (a very small portion also) is just obscene, I won't be coming back.

Super disappointed. We went to celebrate a birthday. The waitress was throwing the plates and cutlery on the table. Service was extremely slow, when we arrived it was super quiet, and took them so long to bring a glass of wine. With dessert don’t get me started. I know some desserts take long time to prepare but 40 mins really? When we got there my husband pop on to the loo to wash his hands and I used the opportunity to ask the waitress for dessert with a candle, she didn’t even approach to take dessert order I had to ask another kind lady (not our waitress she was wearing black top and jacket) and she took dessert order. And that’s how it arrived 😳🥺

Really I’m extremely disappointed, I love Gordon Ramsey’s restaurants but this time was not the quality that you expect at all.

Wanted a nice restaurant but child friendly, chose this place as seemed like it ticked all the boxes for us. We like a nice restaurant, not bothered on price as long as good food and service. What a letdown, would not visit again, shame really.

Excellent given the circumstances. Very attentive and incredibly good service. My only reason for not giving 5 stars all round is the food was lukewarm not piping hot. But an excellent experience nonetheless.

My first ever visit to Bread Street. I have no idea why I have never been. We chose the Beef Wellington Experience. What an experience. It was probably one of the best meals I have ever had.

The staff were absolutely brilliant and gave a real personal touch and had time to talk.

In a terrible year this was an absolute highlight! Thank you Bread Street. We went home very happy.

First of all I love BSK but this time was a bit disappointing. The food was great but the experience felt rushed. I get it, there’s a 10 pm curfew but we didn’t even get any breadbasket or were asked about dessert. It was our last dinner before lockdown and we were expecting more as they are usually super attentive and super nice and warm.

I'd heard mixed reviews, but gave it a go anyway. Overall, I was pretty underwhelmed, and left feeling 'meh' about the experience, if not slightly resentful as it ended up so expensive.

We all ordered the potted beef to start. Portion size was fab but oh my god, the mustard noted on the menu was actually the whole basis of the potted beef. The mustard was SO overpowering for 3 of 5 of us, we couldn't finish it which was a shame as the beef portion was decent... if we could have tasted the beef. On noting this to one waiter, he just told us 'it's the recipe' and walked off.

The mains. 2 F it's pretty small (400g). One member of our group wanted the whole thing to himself, but that would have been nearly £100. Him & myself decided to give it a go anyway. It was ok. Most of the meat was rare as asked, but was cold inside (understandable I guess?) The mash side was v. small but tasty. We were both left hungry at nearly £50 each.

F&C was reported to be nice and a decent portion by one, average by another.

Pork belly reported to be nice, but small portion.

Desserts were 1 STP and 1 molten chocolate cake. Both were nice to finish the meal but didn't taste homemade/anything special/no presentation.

Wine sadly one really nice guy AFTER we'd paid said we should have told him about the bad starters and he would have sorted it - alas the person we did tell didn't seem to care.

When the bill came we were completely shocked to see there was a 15% service charge! I have eaten in many Michelin star restaurants in London and I've never once been asked to pay 15% service, let alone for 'standard' food. We reluctantly paid it but really, we should have just paid less.

All in all, just very average and now we're so much out of pocket I do feel slightly resentful, and therefore don't think I'll come back.

Lamb cutlets were most gristle, weren’t very nice, and luke warm, so left most of my meal. Burger was average, but not worth the price.
Service was great and we did explain to our server the issue with the lamb, so our 2 drinks were removed from the bill. Staff were friendly and warm.

Bread Street Kitchen is one of my favourite restaurants and as always service , food and welcome was amazing! Raphael the manager is a true asset to the Gordon Ramsay restaurants. Raphael takes the time to make everyone welcomed and relax. Despite the Covid restrictions, the Bread Street team maintain the rules perfectly, but still manage to create a lovely relaxing atmosphere. Honestly can’t wait to go back

The service was excellent and they all adhered to social distancing guidelines.
The food was absolutely gorgeous, tasty and flavoursome however i did find that the tortelloni had more mushroom than it had tortelloni but it was still so delicious. The surf and turf was delicious and the steak was perfect.

The view on our table was not great as i was facing a scaffolding but that was obviously outside of the restaurants remit but it was a shame as i would wanted to have documented the experience as a food blogger and also being my partners birthday.

We went for the beef Wellington experience, the shared starters of crackers and piccalilli, chicken wings and it at tartare were great and the portion was huge, we couldn’t finish it.m as don’t want to spoil our main. The beef Wellington was delicious! The dessert was a mixture of small delights. Great cocktail included too. Overall a lovely evening but quite expensive.

Celebrated our friend’s belated birthday. Asked if we could have a little something to celebrate and even if they got the wrong girl (thought the birthday girl was our vegan friend, but wasn’t), the whole meal was special and amazing. The staff were so attentive and the food was really good! Highly recommend and I’ll definitely be back.
