    Good food, shame that the service was so slow. It took ages to get anything other than a glass of tap water.

    Arrived on time. Took a while to be seated. Restaurant wasn’t busy but by the looks of things, it had been a lot busier earlier on, as there were a lot of glasses waiting to be washed up. Assigned a nice table and given menus but then had to wait ages to order and even get water. Ordered cocktails and some olives plus our mains. Another wait and a follow up and then everything pretty much arrived at once. Staff were pleasant and apologetic. Clearly overstretched - maybe they were short-staffed. As usual though, the mains were *outstanding*. The menu at The Gate is always exciting and I’d have been happy with any of the mains as they all sounded delicious. To sum up, the food was absolutely delicious but the restaurant either needs more staff or to employ someone to run the Front of House more efficiently. I do appreciate how difficult it is to recruit and retain good staff at the moment and hope my review is helpful. We love going to The Gate but our last two visits (one pre-COVID) have been slightly marred by the less-than-brilliant service we’ve experienced. But rest assured, we will be back.

    Great variety of vegan food, lovely open space with high ceilings. Staff super busy but very helpful. Worth trying out for sure and also only 4 mins walk from Hammersmith station.

    Bit of a shambles. Firstly, our confirmed reservation for two wasn't showing. Then took 30 minutes to order a drink and food. One drink arrived after an hour: the other was out of stock. The food arrived 10 minutes later. Ad it was very good. Felt very sorry for the two serving staff - it was the first day for one of them. They were overwhelmed and service to several tables was really poor. Perhaps some staff were sick but no excuse to ruin what was planned to be a relaxed pre-theatre dinner after a 100-mile drive.

    Went at 5.15 but the restaurant itself did not start filling up until after 6 so little atmosphere until then. The starters and maincourses were very good and tasty. I had the chocolate brownie which tasted like warmed up stale chocolate cake. Very disappointing and not at all like a chocolate brownie should be.

    We searched for restaurants near to the theatre we were heading for as we wanted a pre-theatre meal. This was the closest and well-rated so we chose it solely on that basis. Definitely hit the spot - was a great experience. Have mentioned it to a number of people since - some of whom knew it and who rated it highly, and even though it’s a little out of the way for us usually we will return.

    We aren’t vegetarian but we were very impressed with the variety of choice, overall service and warm welcome. The Gate is perfectly situated for Eventim Venue at Hammersmith and I would happily recommend 👍 Staff were great and so was the atmosphere. It’s not a large restaurant so book ahead .

    First time at this restaurant and really enjoyed the whole experience. I'm not a vegetarian but thought the food was lovely (particularly the Schnizel main course and the sticky toffee pudding was the best I've had!) and really good service. Would definitely go back.

    We are early diners so the restaurant was quiet only another 2 tables. The food was good with generous proportions. Service was good. The spacious restaurant place is nice but I think could be updated. My wife were saying the ceiling rafters looked unfinished and painted white were not a good look. Thought it should have been plaster border and painted dark greens greyish to make it more atmospheric with perhaps improved lighting.

    The Gate is really handy for The Hammersmith Eventim. It’s quite tucked away in a courtyard so take care not to walk past it! We are not vegetarian but we’re pleasantly surprised at the food on offer. The menu isn’t huge but it is all freshly prepared and very tasty. I started with the deep fried battered cauliflower with a sesame and lime dip followed by an aubergine schnitzel. These were both delicious and the portions very generous. I couldn’t manage pudding. The waiting staff were great- just the right amount of attention and happy to help with explaining what was in the menu.

    We have eaten at the Gate in Hammersmith several times over the years and I can honestly say that we have never had a bad experience or a bad meal. Quite the contrary in fact. I have been a vegetarian most of my life, my husband is a commited meat eater, so it is always nice to eat somewhere that I can taste from HIS plate! The menu was varied enough to make choosing difficult, and the when it arrived the food was beautifully presented and just the right amount (apart from the main course which I purposely didn't finish as I had already eyed up the pudding! Don't worry though, my husband polished it off ... nothing left on any of the plates!) This was the first time that my brother and his wife had been to the restaurant, and I am normally sceptical at going somewhere new with them as my brother is a bit of a 'food snob'. No worries here! I knew they'd love it. And they did - they didn't stop raving about it. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. All together one of my favourite meals this year. Wonderful!

    The restaurant cancelled our table 2 hours before we were booked for. They don’t check their top table bookings regularly so gave priority to bookings made direct.

    The food was good but service very slow and inside felt like a school hall with tables added. Took a long time for drinks and food to arrive. Had the tortilla for main with polenta chips that are to die for. Dessert was a chocolate snowball with a hot chocolate sauce that was supposed to melt the chocolate snowball-that didn't go quite to plan- still tasty though.

    The food was lovely- it always is. Unfortunately the service was incredibly slow and unhelpful. It took over an hour for entrees and the same for mains! Not normally so slow but this time was very disappointing in terms of service.
