    It was our first visit. We got the sense that the venue is bouncing back succesfully from the impact of the pandemic.

    I met a friend one night after work. We used to go here all the time when we worked just around the corner. Having not been for so many years, we were looking forward to a bit of nostalgia but were bitterly disappointed from start to finish. It took at least 15 minutes to get anyone's attention just to order a drink. We ordered a side of the Artisan Bread and butter for the table which turned out to be lightly toasted sliced bread, with no explanation. After waiting another 5 minutes with no luck to get someone's attention, I went up to our waiter to ask why we had toast rather than the advertised bread. I was then told they had ran out of the Artisan Bread. When I asked if we could just have normal bread (rather than toasted), I was told the toast on our table was the last they had! The main course, it has to be said was delicious! Bangers and mash - a classic! Moving on to dessert! We shared a Treacle Tart with Clotted Cream. The amount of cream that was presented was a joke! Barely a teaspoon full. My friend asked about the portion of cream and asked if we could have a little more. He went to investigate. He came back about 10 minutes later with 2 bowls of coconut ice cream!! We then learnt that the cream already served was just double cream and not the advertised Dorset Clotted Cream as they had run out of that... and now had run out of the standard double cream!! It seemed that the kitchen just wasn't updating their waiters of what was being served or what was available to order. They also seemed way under staffed so sadly, on this occasion, I have to give a negative review. I will still go back to our other favourite Davy's Wine Bars, namely The Mug House in London Bridge, Davy's at St James and The Crusting Pipe in Covent Garden. We've not been put off completely :-)

    We went on a week day for lunch, so a quiet time which was just what we wanted. It was perfect for us. The staff stand out - they are discreet, polite, cheerful and super efficient. Great place.

    When entering the cellar by Davy’s wine, it’s not immediately clear where the restaurant is. It was also incredibly busy as there is a wine bar downstairs too. Once shown to the dining area, the service was pretty good. Food was well priced for the Holborn area, and arrived piping hot. Overall an inexpensive dining experience.

    First off the name of this venue is not as advertised. It is Davy's. It made the venue hard to locate. Service was slow and overall the food ok but not out of this world. A little disappointing!

    This is one of the chain of Davy's wine bars which in various locations I have visited for over 30 years. Seen one, generally seen them all-and that is a positive-in terms of decor and offering. The menu has grown over the years and though not long should give enough choice for most tastes. The wine list is good but I have actually never ventured far since Davy's Number 1 claret is always so acceptable.

    Booked on line and as they were quiet they decided to close the kitchen early! I booked after the kitchen was closed and they notified me when I was on the way Glad I didn't eat there. If they don't even know how to book a table who knows what the in restaurant service must be like

    I made an online booking for lunch for large group . I contacted the restaurant in advance and explained the lunch was a baby shower for a co-worker, and they were able to provide us with a private room and allowed us to come in early to "decorate" (a balloon and table confetti) for the shower. The service was great. Our waitress was attentive and kept popping back into the room to give us updates on our food. Because it was Friday lunch time, the restaurant was busy and we had quite a delay in getting our food. But when the food arrived there were no complaints. The food was delicious, hot and generous portion sizes. And when we received the bill, we'd received a 20% discount on the food, as Davy's apology for the long wait. We couldn't have asked for more. We had a lovely celebration, great food, loads of time to chit chat and a discount at the end of it. We made a mum-to-be very happy. Because of its proximity to work and the quality of food, Davy's is a favorite for team lunches. After this experience it still is and we will continue coming back. The ambiance, food and service is consistently great.

    I know Davy's of old and it's always a most enjoyable restaurant for lunch or dinner. The staff are excellent and always on hand to serve or advise about the excellent food and wine.

    EPIC FAIL opentables.co.uk. You "confirm" reservations for a restaurant which doesn't exist. Congratulations!
