    I went for breakfast on a Sunday with family. It was quiet when we arrived at 10 and slowly got busier. It has a lovey stomp where and very stylish interiors. The food menu has a great choice and is very reasonably price compared to other places of the same ambience and location. Staff were helpful and pleasant too. Also, as someone with a nut allergy, it was very reassuring to be told they are a nut free venue. Would definitely recommend and hope to be back in the not to distant future!

    I don’t know where to begin. The experience was awful. I’ve visited Dean Street Townhouse many times but this was disastrous and I won’t return. The best thing about it was the warm greeting by the receptionist on arrival. She was lovely & welcoming. From being shown to our table it all went wrong. We’d not been seated for more than a minute when a breathless waiter pounced on us with menus asking if we wanted still or sparkling water. We immediately felt pressured. Next, another waiter asked us almost immediately if we’d chosen our meal. We’d hardly looked at the menu by that point. Told him to come back in 5 but we ordered Kir Royale cocktails. When the cocktails came, the champagne used was flat - they tasted awful. Sent them back. Replacement was better but not great. We placed our order but the food wasn’t good. Very salty. Now the ambience - which was palpable and very strange. Dark illumination. We felt we were sitting amongst a creepy religious cult! Nobody around us was laughing or seemingly enjoying themselves. Quite the opposite - the diners around us looked deeply depressed. But this was reflected in the staff too. They all looked unhappy and ‘dead’ behind their eyes. We ate and left speedily to find another place for dessert with a better upbeat vibe. And we did! Our night improved straightaway!

    The food is fine, the service is lovely the wine is okay but honestly I could while away many an evening at DST. The ambiance is second to none and it doesn’t have the veja trainer vibe of its next door neighbour soho house. If you want a comfy seat, a catch up with pals or a bit of candlelight for two, I couldn’t recommend it enough

    Lovely food, mediocre service. The host had forgotten how to smile, didn’t take our coats. The waiter forgot water, then pepper, then my coffee. Lovely place, tasty brunch, maybe an off-day for the staff?

    Lots to be admired, delicious mini cakes & very nice scones. Not expensive compared to some but not exactly generous with the cakes or sandwiches & the tea (English Breakfast) was too weak, even after an hour’s brewing. Fabulous setting & ambience & I would be happy to give it another go!

    If you want a lovely ambiance and consistently nice food, this is the place. You do sometimes feel you’re being ‘ushered along’ as staff are so busy but we were lucky to have waiters who spared a minute to answer questions and also make that bit extra effort which makes ALL the difference. I knock off 1 star for little things like the table rocking and the lack of variety in the menu, I like the classics but would welcome 1 or 2 new dishes every so often, especially vegetarian.

    I thought the standard of the food would be much higher. It wasn’t as nice as Granger, Cote or the Ivy and very overpriced. The service was lovely but I found the dinning room dark and depressing so low points for breakfast ambience. The food was average, the vegetarian breakfast was tragic!

    We had dinner with friends on a Wed night and it was buzzing - great atmosphere. Our table was lovely & cosy and the Waiters were efficient & pleasant. We all had mince & potatoes which was delicious, with two side vegetable dishes, broccoli & spinach. The side dishes were disappointingly small portions and wouldn’t have suited those with a healthy appetite!! However, We do enjoy Dean Street Townhouse as it’s location is ideal for when we’ve been to Ronnie’s!

    All day breakfast is great but I hate when I have to actively try and locate my server for every piece of my meal. Had to ask for our drinks, ask for our carafe of wine refill, ask for dessert menu, ask for bill. It just isn’t great. It felt like we were a lost table. Very loud din but nice candle light.
