We arrived early but were fitted in. However they wanted the table back after 1 hour- not a relaxing start. We were then given only the Xmas menu and had to ask for the other. Drinks took 15 mins to arrive (out of our precious 1 hour dining allocation), and then we had to ask for a wine cooler for the bottle. Food arrived reasonably promptly and was ok but the bread we were served was tough. We were really hungry so we ate as much as we could. Expensive for what it is. £79 including service for 2 mains and a bottle of wine.

Really strange food. Chicken was a Nando's for £34! Heavily overpriced. No room to eat. Service haughty and disinterested

Our assigned waiter started well then disappeared to look after other tables. I almost gave a 2 stars rating but the booking office bar was saved by one of your waiter who took over and looked after us for the rest of the evening.

What an awful place. Please just don’t waste your time or money. They had run out of Sunday lunch. The waiter couldn’t speak English and super slow. The chairs were all torn and tatty. The food they did have was horrid and sloppy. I would never go back.

Our food was served relatively cold and when paying £38 for a small steak it needs to be served hot or at the very least warm. Very poor value for money. Fantastic building and surroundings though.

Excellent level of service - greeted by a charming man who made sure we got a nice table for drinks before we sat down to eat. All bar and waiting staff were so welcoming.
There was a live band and singer which was lovely playing some great classic songs.

I enjoy meeting guests here for informal business meetings but disappointed with what appears to be a more limited lunch menu trying to offer perhaps more sophisticated choices but missing some popular essentials that used to be offered as options feeling let down a little especially with so many alternatives close by continue to enjoy the ambiance and heritage

We had a nice lunch here before departing on the Eurostar. The food service was a bit slow and there were next to no salads on the menu for lunch. It’s sort of “business lunch-y” but the space is very interesting, architecturally/historically. The cafe/bar next door might be nice too - much lighter and airier.

Whilst the Booking Hall is a lovely place the lunchtime menu was a little limited.

Myself and my guest both had the Sea Bass which wasn't very nice.

The fries and vegetable were good but at £90 for lunch with only water it was very pricy for what it was.

This is a lovely location which is great for a special occasion. The restaurant has high vaulted ceilings and is hugely impressive as a setting. The food is very nice, made and presented with care. There was just the right level of service - attentive but not overly intrusive.

A must for the wine and cocktails. The ambience is top notch as it’s check full of history and the tallest ceilings you’ll ever see. The steaks were good but a bit over cooked for medium and the sides were tasty.

The service was absolutely excellent, I could not fault it. However the food was not particularly good. My meat was tough, I was served apple sauce instead of horseradish and the side dishes were only lukewarm.

Had a great luncheon meeting at the Booking Office in late 2018. Made dinner reservations for 6:00 p.m. on October 31, 2019. We were sat at a table very close to the bar with very low seats that would be suitable for drinks were it not for the cacophonous noise level which forced us to lean forward in an uncomfortable and ergonomically poor manner. Had we been sat at a proper table we might have stayed but we left after one round of drinks. Booking Office seems good for lunch, OK for drinks dependent on your noise tolerance, poor for dinner.

Mixed experience here.
Overall though, disappointing. The food (steak) did not arrive as ordered...so one of us ate while the other waited for their meal to be correctly cooked.
Once the main course was over we had intended to have dessert - but the waiter took so long to return for our order that we decided...after all...to forego the pudding.
Definitely overpriced for what was on offer.

Overall nice experience . Although table we sat at really wobbly ( did men to on this to our server who couldn’t really be Bothered about our dining experience ) so no alternative offered . Wine starts at £32 per bottle plus the service charge which takes it up to £36 ! And it was warm ... GREAT venue ... but the other points let it down and a tad expensive for what you get

Lovely place to visit but would not say its top of the list. Food was lovely, the mussel starter was exceptionally lovely, the cocktails were nice, wine (we had the Barolo) was very nice. Service was of a very good standard although a little slow with drinks. Price wise I would say quite expensive.

We had fish and chips and sole with truffle chips. Chocolate caramel tart with sorbet was very tasty.
The young waiter was a friendly and attentive young Polish chap.

The food at Booking Office was decent enough but overpriced. £10 for one beef croquette. Main of fish and chips £22, beef cheeks & mash £24. Having said that everything was tasty, we had a great reasonably priced bottle of English Brut, and they provided a plate of birthday macaroons with a candle for the birthday boy. The restaurant is beautiful and part of the fantastically stunning St Pancras building.

Have eaten here twice before - great food, service and ambience. On this occasion, the service was very slow, two mistakes were made with our order, my (£22) risotto was undercooked/chewy and if you ask the server what is on the menu for vegetarians you will get a very sheepish look (one starter and one main only). I am not vegetarian but one of my guests is and it was very embarrasing for me. I won't return in a hurry.
