    Service is spotty and the food not the best I’ve had. We stayed at the hotel and found service very slow. The food for dinner was not very tasty. Very close to Royal Albert Hall

    As a hotel owner I was a bit concerned about the reviews I had seen. However, I couldn’t have been more pleased with the service and the quality of food and ultimately as it was a pre-theatre menu the value. Everything was excellent. We went to see Robbie Williams at the Royal Albert Hall which was absolutely amazing and I must say the food and service we had prior added to what was a great evening. The staff were exceptional

    The bread rolls did not taste fresh and we a bit stale. The service was not great and staff could have been a bit more attentive. The the price of the afternoon tea was not valid for money.

    Chaotic service, sloppy and slow. Messy, unclean outdoor dining area, tiny portions that wouldn't feed a 5-year-old. Cold food. Overrated, overpriced, and a shambolic badly managed experience. Go elsewhere in the area.

    Terrible service specially from the restaurant staff. My and my wife came for dinner as we haven’t been there for over 10 years and we are looking forward to going there. As we live walking distance from the actual venue itself I could definitely say I would never ever come there again since staff and the service was absolutely terrible. I would remind the staff that the fact they work there for the London minimum wage and if they are not happy serving other people besides people of Caucasian descent I would highly recommend not to work in London as London is a vibrant and diverse city unlike Italy where I assume they were from.

    Brunello Bar and RestaurantResponded on July 6, 2022Dear Jooo, Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear that our restaurant didn't meet your expectations, and I am surprised that you felt some differences in the service received. I can assure you that one of our Company main value is to provide the same level of attention and care to all our guests, and we never received any similar complaints. If you would like to discuss any further, please, do not hesitate to contact us. Kind regards, Andrea Signanini Food and Beverage Manager

    I had a buness breakfast at Brunello Bar and Restaurant we ordered eggs royals and Omelette whicn we had to wait over 45 minutes. In the meantime we asked the waiter Claudio what happened to our breakfast! with a bad attitude he said we had to be patient as the kitchen was busy and short of staff. the staff who didn't smile and there was also a horrible atmosphere 👎👎👎

    Nice place, but very small portion for the amount that you pay. Even at comparable restaurants with similar quality, the amount is far too little.

    a good afternoon tea with a twist to some ingredients (i.e. sandwiches are rather made in choux pastry), perhaps not as filling as in some other of the hotels, but staff was very polite and attentive.

    Super recommended!! I loved the appetizers, we took the burrata and il Tonno and both were super tasty. The gazpacho of the burrata is very refreshing and the Tonno is just amazing...is a MUST HAVE. What I liked is also that the menu has many choices.. we took long to decide what to order .. and I will for sure be back to try other plates. Staff and service were top class. Nice background music and vibe. I'll be back soon :)

    I have been going to this restaurant for a number of years. I have noticed that over the past year the quality and taste of food have gone down. The portion size is also a joke. Yesterday I got 6 scallops that were not very well cooked with a thin smear of mash for £35.00. I doubt I'll got there again or will recommend it to anyone.

    Brunello Bar and RestaurantResponded on April 8, 2022Dear Martini, Thank you for review. I am deeply sorry to hear that you find that the food quality has gone down over the past year.

    Living close by, I have always wondered as to why the restaurant is near empty most days. Now I know. Food was average and somewhat overpriced. The heaters in the outside seating area did not work and the excuses were feeble. Service was very good and the waiter actually brought a blanket to keep warm. A nice gesture indeed. Not sure if I will return.

    Brunello Bar and RestaurantResponded on April 8, 2022Dear Simonius, Thank you for review. I would like to apologies about the heaters and I am sorry to read that you did not enjoy the food.
