    Our party of five or six has regularly dined at this restaurant and it has always been excellent, but not so on this occasion. It was nearly 20 minutes before we were offered a drink and we asked for water and the wine list. That took a long time to arrive, then nobody asked what wine we’d like so we had to order that when we placed our food order and we had to summon a waiter before we could do that. They don’t serve Prosecco, they only offer English wines. Again we waited a long time before food arrived. The food was mediocre, apart from the risotto ordered by two of our party. My pork chop was so overcooked that I gave up half-way through eating it. There were very few other diners, which was unusual for Friday lunch-time at this restaurant. The staff seemed disorganised until a kindly waiter took over serving our table. We got the feeling the kitchen was short-staffed. Everything we experienced may be due to staff-shortages, holidays, or the current financial situation. However, apart from the one waiter mentioned above, the serving staff should have been alert and more attentive to diners within the restaurant, rather than those being served drinks on the terrace outside. The cost was staggeringly high, too. We will be hesitant to patronise the restaurant again.

    My 2nd time time at this Brasserie. A prefect place to catch up with friends at KX. Great decor, spacious seating so you can have a civilise conversation without having to raise your voice. My Cornish Cod fillet was cooked to perfection and well presented as before. My guest T Bone pork was juicy and he certainly enjoyed it !!!. With regard to the crab and prawn cocktail starters, I dont have issue as such that they were pre-made. But serving them when they are still a bit too cold from the fridges is not good. Overall a bit underwhelming. Might skip them next time. Overall we had a good dinner. Better starters would have made the evening perfect.....

    Service was great Prices did not include VAT so the burger is not 17.50 it’s 21 So misleading … So the meal was just under 70 but with VAT and service charge it came to 95

    DOES NOT ACCEPT OPENTABLE BOOKINGS!! Pricey, but we had a very good experience overall, and were thankful for the air conditioning on a very hot day. The only problem was that the restaurant didn't have our booking, explaining that they do not actually accept Open Table bookings, but Open Table will not stop taking the bookings. Bookings must be done through their website. Fortunately, they had availability and were able to seat us.

    Despite it was the last day of service due to major refurbishment, the staffs were on hands treating us attentively. Although I was concerned the food will not be at the expected standard, I can dismiss my worry as we have thoroughly enjoyed our food. Well presented and cooked. The crab starter and the prawn cocktail were on the small size for the price we paid. And will be much better if they were served at room temperature and not straight from the fridge.... Will certainly revisit and have another try when they re-open in Sept 2022

    Don't book this place! We arrived, were given a menu, no water offered on one of the hottest evenings. It took 10 mins to get a cocktail menu. About another 10 mins to order 2 cocktails. We waited and waited. ...no cocktails. We complained and then we were asked which cocktails we had ordered. Our order was not given in by the waiter. We were furious and left. The menu offers little choice and is expensive and drinks overpriced. Never again!!!

    Very disappointing, a special birthday but no special treatment. Booked because we wanted afternoon tea as a birthday treat. Quite briskly told we couldn’t have afternoon tea because we hadn’t booked it. I didn’t want to create a fuss on a special birthday, but attitude and treatment was poor. Maybe our mistake, but could have been communicated and handled much better!

    Really delicious breakfast, drinks and service from all floor staff but had a slightly underwhelming greeting at door. Was stood for about 3 mins completely ignored by all staff and then told we were in the champagne bar section despite booking specifically the brasserie for breakfast and also putting it in my notes as other diners have complained about this in their open table reviews. I think once the booking miscommunications between the brassiere and open table are sorted concerning where people want to be allocated it would be lovely to return. Though potentially will just call the restaurant going forward to book.

    Overall really happy! I was a bit dubious because I know kings cross station so well and thought it would be noisy but it wasn’t at all. Very lovely atmosphere and venue, great staff although I felt they could have been a bit more attentive (faster with taking orders but I was extremely hungry so that may have played a part), we were seated in a little booth, a bit closer to the table of 8 or so guests adjacent than I would have liked to be but no big issue. Ordered the mussel risotto, I’m not a huge mussel fan but it was lovely, would’ve happily eaten a huge bowl of that risotto without the mussels. Beef shorts ribs and a lemon tart, I’m a huge lemon tart fan and it didn’t disappoint. I will definitely be returning soon.

    Catching up with a cousin before she headed back north - thought this would be convenient. We both had the Smoked Chicken Caesar Salad which was nice. Few mouths from the end though I had a hard piece of something, which I left to one side. Waitress came back to say it was the chicken skin ... I'm afraid I don't agree. Shame, as the salad was nice. I did have to tell them we weren't in any hurry as they kept asking about us ordering and the place wasn't busy.

    I made a booking for 2 for the restaurant on Saturday night. When we went inside, we were told by a waiter that I hadn't booked a table in the restaurant but in the bar outside instead. I was surprised but thought I'd made a mistake when booking. Then today I received an email saying I didn't attend the booking in the restaurant. We went to the outside bar instead. Good job I had great company - poor organisation and customer service. Won't be back.

    Having booked the table a week and a half before 27th Match, I was only informed late afternoon of the 26th that the menu would be restricted. This provided no time to find another restaurant. The service was exceptional, however the restricted menu and the price was extremely unsatisfactory especially because the restriction was not clear at the time of booking.
