Excellent food enjoyed the tapas concept best dishes included the sea bass and duck. Only gripe really was our table was situated very close to a DJ booth who we felt had no choice but to watch us eat, felt strange to have it so close to tables otherwise excellent food and desserts

The service is good, staff kind and friendly, presentation of the food amazing but the bill??? We paid nearly 50£ each for really small portions! We were all starving at the end. I was the organizer and, at the end, I was very imbarazed with the 11 friends. Nobody expected to pay that bill for really small portions. For instance asparagus are 4 little pieces maybe for a bird? Sorry but I will not come back anymore. Thank you

I wasn't aware it was a hotel restaurant when I booked, had I know I may well have booked elsewhere. The food was delicious, however it was extremely overpriced for what you received. Two bite sized tacos for £7!! Is just one example, when we left we were still hungry. The service was so good it was bordering on intrusive. I nearly asked the waitress if she'd like to sit with us, she was at our table so often!

Overall and enjoyable lunch. Food is delicious.

We opted for the set menu which is ok but I do not think all the dishes lend them selves to be shared. Oddly there are carbs on the set menu at all which is a bit odd especially for a sharing menu.

If indeed it is tapas then bring all the food at once not a course at a time.

Note they expect you to order your dessert at the same time as the other courses without knowing whether you want dessert!

Service is very good, fast efficient and very friendly.

We were recommended by our helpful server Mario on number of plates and good variations of dishes, we went for all his suggestions and it was great. We would have struggled to make choices otherwise! Right level of attention (we never had to wave to get the server’s attention, in busy restaurants this usually annoys me) was given, leaving us to chat and dine. Cocktails were also superb.

The only minor downside was that there was a big party in the same area and they were quite noisy. Luckily didn’t last throughout the whole meal. Other than that, the ambience and food were fantastic. We had a lovely time and hope to be back again.

We opted for afternoon tea at Leicester Square Kitchen for myself, my husband and two teenage children. It was OK but cost £120 for the 4 of us and, based on the sandwiches and cakes on offer, didn't feel like particularly good value for money. The staff were excellent, very accommodating, they brought out a little cake with a candle for my birthday. The restaurant is beautifully designed has a very nice atmosphere. We would consider going back for lunch or dinner but not for afternoon tea.

In the heart of Leicester Square this restaurant is no tourist trap. Food is refined, tasty and had that something special. If you love spicy food this is your place. Great selection of small plates, portions good sized. service was swift and staff attentive despite the restaurant being busy. In and out in an hour in time for show, but never felt rushed.

2nd visit and still just as good. Service is excellent-attentive and knowledgeable staff and fabulous food and cocktails. The portions are small but not overpriced and if you order a few each they are filling. The flavours are amazing too and just so different. This will be our place for a special treat whenever we are in London!

Lorna was our server for a business dinner. She was able to choose items for the table for all the courses. Not only was she amazing, the service was spot on! The entire experience was truly incredible. I will definitely go back when hosting a small gathering in Leicester's Square.

Briefed the staff we were going to the Theatre and we had an hour and half. Courses for the 4 of us arrived in a jumble with some members having nothing on their plate for 20 mins. The last course for someone arrived as we were paying the Bill. Margaritas arrived with no ice. The whole experience was chaotic with no communication between staff and kitchen. Constantly chasing staff to where individual course selections were. Would not recommend this experience to anyone who wishes a calming experience. Staff were eager to remove items from the table rather than to deliver food. Overall well overpriced for drinks and food.

Service was excellent but the food wasn't anything especial for me. I mean the ingredients were nice and fresh but the overall taste was OK nothing really wowed me.The taco portions were tiny but the other plates were a good size. We had a nice little surprise at the end as it was a special day for us which was a nice touch!

As a group of 11 women celebrating a Hen Do meal the LSK was a great venue. Everybody enjoyed the selection of tapas and small dishes that were served, the staff were very friendly and attentive. We were shocked at how reasonably priced it all was and will certainly be back again.

Intrusive service, we were not served all of the food we had ordered on time even though we were clear about what time we must leave from the start, and we were still charged for all the food and "discreationary" service charge despite our protests and no response to my follow up complaint. She we asked to put the food we did not get in a doggy bad we got a snappy response that they were not a take-away. Food was decent but I can see why the place was basically empty.

Great food with a good variety of options available on the pre theatre menu. We particularly enjoyed the starters and dessert. The restaurant ambiance is good too - very stylish and service was friendly and attentive. Much more classy than you would usually find in leicester Square. Not the best value pre theatre menu but the food was so good, would still recommend

Really lemony food, everything tasted of lemon from the chicken, to the vegetables to the lamb!
Had to send the lamb back as it was ridiculously expensive but begrudgingly didn’t send the other food back as that would have been rude. Having been to various of their sister restaurants, I was shocked!

They even brought my daughter a birthday desert which was a lovely touch.
