    Super impressed by this place. At first impression it looks like an old bar, all tarted up to look cool; it succeeds in a non imposing way. Go in a group and get the 1kg steak. Fish was perfect too

    Good steak tartare, very tasty rock oysters. I had scallops for main and it tasted rather nice. Not a proper foodie venue per se but cool place where to enjoy your friends company with nice food.

    "We started with a dozen oysters that were served on a bed of ice. These were delicious and not a trace of norovirus in sight. For main course, we ordered the hanger steak with baked bone marrow." Read more

    Food was just so so...not worth the price or noisy atmosphere. We did how ever share the dining room with Conan OBrian! He ordered the whole chicken for 4 and he and his wife finished it!

    The bread is amazing. We ordered rare steak that put me in a coma. My friends are now eating the dessert that will ultimately kill them.

    Served till 1am their “snax” menu is the perfect midnight feast. Make like you’re skiing with a fondue, or shoot some quails eggs – legendary. Plus love ‘em or hate ‘em the free twiglets rock! Read more

    The basement bar is a welcome respite from the tourist carnage outside on the street. Great cocktail selection and friendly service.

    Mark Hix has played a leading role in the use of foraged ingredients. Here you may find chickweed, sea beets, rowan jelly — and, yes, sea buckthorn. Read more

    My choice was Burger which turned out to be dry.Price range for such food is a bit high.Nevertheless,apple tart was to die for!

    Lovely environment, food isn't spectacular but is served so. Great cocktails. As overpriced as any Soho venue. Would try again.

    Went for the brasserie. Beautiful burger and the steak was divine. Service lacked a bit sadly. The cocktail bar downstairs looked pretty impressive though.

    Steak is very good here. Perfectly cooked. However, feel this place is overpriced, we didn't order a starter and had to wait 45 minutes for our main dish. No sign of a bread roll or a olive!

    Though i liked the downstairs bar,restaurant is not the best place to have dinner.'Ambience' is pleasant but food is weird.I suffered a problem of choice simply because I didnt like anything.

    The food is amazing, and all it is cracked up to be. This is stylish, understated dining - not cheap but worth it. Mark's Bar, downstairs also worth checking out.

    The food ranges from ordinary to, well, grim. And the restaurant may look good, but it's impossibly loud, the would-be hipsters all attempting to out-bellow each other. Plus, of course, it's expensive Read more

    The restaurant (a gastro pub) seems to be good. The bar downstairs (the mark's) is cosy but the cocktails are expensive and really bad. We were all very disappointed

    Not the best food. Super salty, kinda overpriced and not very many healthy or veggie options. Nice restaurant tho. Avoid downstairs, noisy and pretentious.

    Disappointed with the Monks tail curry. Lacked any depth of flavour, reminded me of the boil in the bag vestas I used to eat as a student.
