Poached eggs were disappointing, when I cut into one and water burst out and flooded the plate - and then tried the other one and exactly the same thing happened...

Very relaxed. We shared small and medium vegetarian plates, with exciting flavour combinations, but could have chosen a more conventional starter/main if we’d wanted to. Fresh, delicious food and friendly, helpful staff. Looking forward to going back.

Blown away. The food was delicious, good sized portions. We ordered 2 small, 2 medium and 3 large between 3 and it was spot on. The design is beautiful, simple but really well considered. Can't wait to come back and bring other friends.

Food was not nearly on par with the level of restaurant it is purporting to be. No flavor. Over salted. Trying to be overly innovative rather than put out quality great tasting good. Ambiance is great. Decor is fantastic. Service was very spotty. Lot of people running around but not much getting done.

We booked our table in advance. Part way through our coffee, we were approached by Yunus Tuncbilek (the manager) and told that we needed to move table as he needed our table for other customers. Mr Tuncbilek has poor customer service skills; he could not understand why giving customers no advance notice, moving them to a table by an open door and not even offering a complementary drink was an issue. This guy needs some training!

Service started a bit patchy but got better as the evening progressed. Loved the look and ambience of the space. Felt modern and interactive with different dining spaces and the open kitchen. Best of all , though, the food was really exceptional. We shared the chicken platter and were transported to the south of France with the jammy juice and succulent fragrant meat.

What a superb restaurant! The food was top notch, the iberico ham, beef and truffle carpaccio and the tomato salad were standout.

The steak were very well prepared and the pasta dishes to a very high standard.

Buzzy atmosphere for a Monday lunchtime - acoustics meant it was a bit noisy. We had halloumi and cucumber salad - v nice but sparse halloumi - charcoal cauli which was v ordinary and £15 for a bowl of tomatoes and mozzarella which really was too much. Service was v pleasant but would recommend going if someone else paying.

Have been here a few times now, and the food seems to have gone downhill. The atmosphere is lovely, and staff were good, but the food is unimpressive, poorly cooked, poorly presented, and unrepresentative of the price. The bread and tahini starter is lovely though.

A lovely place with a great menu. Waiting staff varied - some where delightful and others a little bit more dour. Food was pretty good. I’m glad I went and it’s a solid place for an evening out.

Ambience was great. Loved the aesthetic.
Food was good! Soft sheel crab was excellent and the burnt carrots. The homemade pasta was very good. The dessert was a blueberrt tart which was also very good. I think slightly overpriced but it was a good meal

The steak was cooked well done, twice... I asked for medium-rare. It got send back to the kitchen and then cooked well done again. Since I am not a fan of food waste, I decided to not complain again and eat it anyways. I did tell the waiter, who looked terrified of the fact he needed to tell his manager again. He acted friendly and respectful, which I cannot say about his manager. Her eyes said everything and I felt judged from the moment I sat down. Maybe it wasn't her day, but do not take it out on your customers.

Love the vibe at Mortimer House, you can have an intimate conversation and not be overheard by the next table. A rare occurrence in restaurants these days. I love the spaciousness, interestingly mouth watering menu and delicious dishes.

Loved the size and brightness and decor of this restaurant. Perfect for a lunch /brunch with friends. Informal spacious layout and relaxed vibe. Magazines and papers for reading and no pressure to order. Service was a little too relaxed maybe but once we ordered it improved. Loved the bread and tomato tahini side order they brought us and food was generally good although my chicken salad used rather slimy bits of grey thigh or leg meat which was surprising. Not lacking in taste but I didn’t like the texture. Would go back ! Priced inline with the area and quality.
