    very pleasant restaurant, mainstream gastropub type menu, friendly helpful staff. Maybe a couple more meat/fish options plus a couple more veggie ones (perhaps but not necessarily on the set menu) would have improved it even more

    Enjoyable meal. Slightly marred by ignorant people who had baby’s iPad entertainment turned up too loud. Baby’s grandfather (?) took business call on speakerphone!! Whole restaurant heard conversation. Staff dealt with complaints about this very promptly though. 👏

    Disappointing food. Had to send rhubarb back as impossible to cut. Was offered a knife and fork! Staff did replace with a sorbet, at cost.. Steak frites distinctly average. we did like chicory/ewes cheese starter and honey and thyme pudding, but nothing else, I'm afraid.

    This is the second time to Lussmanns - Hitchin and we thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service, It is just a pity that on both occasions there was an item on the menu that was not ready.

    Although I’m a local this was my first visit to Lussmanns in Hitchin and I wasn’t disappointed. We had a delicious meal with some chillled wine and the service was friendly and professional. Prices were not cheap but reasonable for a restaurant of this quality and I will certainly be returning.

    As always, everything about Lussmanns is very good. Food and service always first class in a relaxing atmosphere. Fortunately, we're locals so it's a short walk for us but it would be well worth the effort to make a trip from outside the area.

    We had an absolutely delicious meal. All five of us had fish main courses which were excellent. Service was good too. We did find the menu confusing - the Specials which are on the menu all the time so are not special (to me specials change weekly or daily). Plus some meals come with vegetables or chips, some don’t - it’s all very confusing.

    Absolutely wonderful place to eat. We live in in Canada now was an absolute breath of fresh air over the regular Prezzo / Pizza Express (which are all perfectly fine of course) fare. Lovely attentive service. I worry about recommending it too much in case we cannot get a table….

    Absolutely wonderful meal in a lovely quiet, airy restaurant. All the food was delicious and real care taken in the dishes. I have a few special dietary requirements and the restaurant was very good at accommodating for these. Though the restaurant was pretty full the noise level was low. A really enjoyable evening!!

    The friendly and efficient service was compromised by less than anticipated quality from the kitchen. It should be possible to prepare a Sole at the table or by the chef. Not all your guests are confident in doing this and in many restaurants it is the norm. The Cauliflower dish was too crusty and difficult to eat. The sauce was ambiguous in taste. The dessert with sorbet and rhubarb included pieces of rhubarb that were inedible.

    I think our waiter must have been new as he got one of the orders wrong, though the host/manager(?) quickly sorted it out. The glasses of wine my husband and sister had ordered did not appear until they had actually finished their main courses. What was quite annoying was our young waiter's constant attention to clearing tables around us, bashing into my brother in law's chair several times in so doing, and setting up for new customers who we felt were unlikely to make an appearance at that time in the evening. We also had to ask for our table to be wiped down before we ate our desserts and this was done by another waiter. The food was good as we have come to expect from Lussmanns in various Hertfordshire branches. Finally I really think you should find a way to screen off the loo corridor from the kitchen as it is not very pleasant to look into the kitchen en route to or from the facilities. I write this, not just as a customer of Lussmanns restaurants in several towns, but as someone who, before retirement, had responsibility (among other things) for five star conference facilities in London, so I do understand about delivering first class service. I also understand that, like all restaurants currently, you will have been having difficulties obtaining well trained staff in sufficient numbers. This review is written to inform and advise therefore, rather than to complain.

    Out with my husband for dinner in Hitchin. I love Lussmanns anyway and have had many lovely meals in Hitchin, Harpenden, St Albans and Hertford. I have yet to try Berkhamstead. Only down side was the annoying couple at the next table to us 🤣🤣

    We had a lovely meal. The menu offers a variety of dishes to excite the taste buds. We always have the early bird evening set meal as it's better value. The fish cake mains is absolutely delicious. Stuart our waiter was very welcoming & efficient and at no time did we feel rushed.

    The fish had loads of tiny bones - sole - which nearly got stuck in my friends throat. Coq au Vin was tasteless. Change the menu - been to you on many occasions and very disappointed.

    Lussmanns - HitchinResponded on May 28, 2022Hello Lorraine. The menu changes by 30% every two months with classic dishes remaining as very popular with our patrons. I am sorry that the coq au vin was below expectation as usually spot on being that it is made in our central production kitchen to spec, I will review. The sole has been such a popular dish and the bones are I am afraid to be expected. That said let me organise a little something on your return. Do let me have your email address and I will see to it. Thank you Andrei Lussmann

    Sauce on fish too overpowering my husband just took one bite & left the rest. Meal took too long to arrive & felt it was expensive as had to add extras such as salads which should have been part of the meal. Will not be going back to the restaurant.
