The restaurant closed so I don't have an experience to share, as my booking was cancelled.

First visit, great looking restaurant, very spacious and well designed. It’s a big place to fill and I’m sure would have a better atmosphere when full. We dined Thursday evening and wasn’t busy so felt a little drab. Specific lighting for / directed at the tables would make a difference. Enjoyed the food but wasn’t incredible. Service was good and attentive. £90 a head on a Thursday evening didn’t feel value for money, but we had a lovely evening and would give VIVI another whirl.

Amazing place and food was also very good.
Portion are not huge though. I had a large caesar salad, which for £19, came a bit small.
Drinks were tasty and service was efficient and friendly.

Beautiful restaurant with exemplary attentive service. The menu is interestingly eclectic British.. The only downside to our meal was that the chef appeared to be overly generous with salt. This was apparent in the crab meat starters all three of us ordered and also the tuna steak main course, which two of us orderd. The tuna steak was perfectly cooked, but the amount of salt was overpowering almost to the point of ruining an otherwise well executed dish.

Took my daughters there for a 20th birthday celebration on a Friday night. The venue is absolutely stunning and close to the tube which makes it an ideal location. The venue decor will blow your mind and the atmosphere is buzzing but not uncomfortable. Perfect for family gatherings, work gatherings, lads night out and girls nights out. Equally perfect for a romantic date or for just drinks. Very instagramable place. Servers we lovely and friendly .. food was lovely ....only very small let down was the dessert menu was not very extensive .. but didn’t spoil our night at all

What a beautiful space. We had the set menu as we're heading to the theatre and sadly for us we're tight for time. The food was delicious. Beautifully presented and very tasty. The staff were utterly charming! Will be back fir sure as we missed dessert!

We went for the 3 course meal deal and was very impressed with the quality and the presentation of the food. The baba rum might be a bit big for a dessert but everything else was perfect.

Really nice venue, very open, airy and stylish. The service was friendly. Not at all busy for a Saturday night. The food was good, although not amazing which it really should be for the prices. Ended up paying £180 for a meal for two. That included wine and two glasses of bubbly, but was still pricey. I would definitely go back, but probably more to enjoy the bar. Cocktails looked great.

Lovely food, and excellent service. Very friendly staff who cannot do enough for you. I fear this may because it's still relatively unknown and is quite quiet. I wonder whether the same level of service will remain when it becomes undoubtedly busier as words spreads.

New restaurant, beautiful decor. It was not too busy even on Friday. Live DJ session playing on Friday nights. A starter, Cornish Crab was really good.
We had to wait for a waiter approx 20 mins when we wanted to pay, we couldn't get their attention at all.

We thought that it would be a nice evening with our friends but unfortunately, the food was nothing to rave about and the portions were very small. The Chef will have to rethink the menu. The beetroot salad (as a main) was incredibly small. I believe that the waiter was also surprised.

Great location, decor and ambience. However it's early days and front of house are still finding their feet. That said there was a new manager in who had only been there for a week. He did his best to look after us and so the overall experience was great.

We booked a table for a birthday, we wrote on the reservation and we said to two waiters that it was birthday. We didn’t receive anything for it. For the refill tea we were charged for the second tea we asked for. We think it really ridiculous when you go for afternoon tea. Otherwise the waiter were really nice and friendly.

Service a bit chaotic. We were not offered the glass of Prosecco that was included in the pre theatre set menu. They made up for it by crediting the two coffees that we had. Had I not brought it to their attention they would certainly have not done that. Small choice of food on the set menu but settled for the Gnocchi which was tasty. The Apple Crumble dessert was delicious. Interestingly Giles Coren visited last week and reviewed it. Alas he was not over impressed.

I loved this place from the moment I stepped in. The restaurant had a 60s vibe and the decor tastefully reflected this. The staff were really friendly and attentive and were on hand the whole time, without being obtrusive. The menu was a deal and for under £25 for 3 courses offered excellent value for money. The music had a retro vibe and the place was big with huge windows stretching the length of the restaurant. (The view of the bank opposite may not have been the best, but I'm sure the city skyline will change over time.) We were left to chat and catch up even after the place emptied out. The toilets were great too with the inspirational artwork on the walls of the cubicles.

Delicious and different food, beautifully served. Waldorf salad and pate starters good; Risotto, chicken tikka and fishcake with mushy oeas and tartare sauce all excellent and treacle tart with cream mouth-watering. Great complimentary prosecco as part if special offer menu. Lovely light and sparkling area. Excellent service from Melissa. Only downside was too loud thumpy "music". Something smooth and quiet would have added a luxurious feeling. However certainly will return

Beautiful setting with so much light in the dining room. Food was very tasty and their breakfast juices and smoothies are delicious. However service was slow; it took 15 minutes for someone to come take payment for our bill, which made me late.

The place has a very pretty nice 1960 vibes with a modern twist . Cocktails, food and wine selection is nice. However as soon as we arrived we’ve been told to order drinks within few minutes as bar was closing and we’ve got kicked out by 11:30 without even being offered dessert or coffee , only the bill. Half way through main course they turned on the high lights which killed the overall experience. Do not offer table for 10pm and 10:30pm if you gonna close within an hour.
The place has however a nice design , quite big but with an intimate atmosphere.
