Atmosphere like a special place to be but not intimidating , just right and def a huge step up from the every day chain restaurants. Only down side is the wine is really a lot more expensive than else where and as you just don't want to leave this gorgeous restaurant but man that will bill will hurt at end. Still highly recommend.

This time however, the dish that my sister and I ordered was not up to the standard I have come to expect. We had the belly pork with chorizo couscous. My husband did enjoy his fish and chips and my son enjoyed his belly pork which he had chosen from the A La Carte menu. Unfortunately we were the only diners which resulted in a somewhat stilted atmosphere

For dessert I had chocolate cake. Both were a bit dry really but my guest had fish and lemon tart which were both good. Nice wine selection. Great restaurant but I did struggle with the background level of noise a bit.

I’m not a fan of artwork for sale , as artwork should be part of the decor so I’d love to see interesting art ( like your menu artwork ) rather than bland art for sale . But we still love LSB!

Little things like this need to be addressed.

Unfortunately our experience was marred by the table behind us FaceTiming friends in the US for over 15 mins on 2 separate occasions - which was both exceptionally noisy and inconsiderate to their fellow diners.

The noise at lunch time was very loud and it was difficult to have a conversation without raising my voice. Although the food was good it was no better than other, cheaper places. £10 for a glass of house white wine, which was OK but not a particularly nice one is a bit OTT. Reading needs the London Street Brasserie as it's one of very few non-chain places to eat, but it's not a place I will go to regularly.

We had a lovely welcome from the delightful staff and really enjoyed the ambience and decor of this charming space. We ate downstairs in the window with a view of the canal. The atmosphere was lovely - buzzing but not too noisy. We chose from the set menu - great choice of varied and tasty dishes. The service was perfect and food delicious. We will definitely return!

Staff all went out of there way to make us feel very special. I wish I had got the staff's names as they were superb. From the young lady at the front desk who took my balloons and order for special bottles of bubbles placed on the table and made me feel straight away like I was a valued customer, to the people who looked after us all night. Can't wait to get back.

The waiter serving us had horrific body odour and was more interested in chatting up the desserts girl than getting my wife her sides (took him 5+ minutes to get, was leaning all over the desserts counter chatting to her for most of it ) Then when he was paying attention, he kept leaning over my wife, with his body odour ridden armpits going pretty much on her face. He was hungover and clearly didn't shower that morning. I came to LSB to get away from the smelly people! I think LSB should look into their staff, because there's a few there that don't look like they can be bothered. Disgusting.
