We had the sharing porterhouse steak, the meat was exceptional, sadly to be let down with the potato dish. the staff were friendly, my dessert was nice but too rich for me, the chocolate mousse. The credit crunch ice-cream my partner had was superb, I wish I had chosen this! Location not easy to find as was down a side... More

My wife & I and a friend visited this restaurant on 12 April, having seen various positive recommendations. On the whole, we found it pretty disappointing and overpriced. There were several issues. First, our main courses - some of which were priced at £30+ - were poor on the whole. Two of our party had beef (hanger steak and rib... More

Food fine, although not on a par with comparable restaurants - any Hawksmoor, Goodman. Service poor.

I went to Hix for a family dinner. We had debated several restaurants for weeks and eventually settled on Hix largely due to location and proximity to my fathers hotel. The service was incredible! The waiter was always one step ahead of us in predicting our needs and we were perfectly looked after, but in a really nice fun way... More

Tucked away it feels as though its a place only for those in the know, and the simple functional interior remains the yardstick for bistro dinning. Have eatern here many times and went again last week for a quick lunch. As always excellent and attentive service from the off, coupled with exquisite food. The steaks really are phenomenal- easily on... More

We were early for our reservation, but were able to have a table anyway - sadly, from there, it was a terrible experience. Waiter was really poor, didn't listen to our order, so we only received one of our starter dishes, not the 2 we ordered. When we sent it back (there was human hair on it!), he just grabbed... More

Busy restaurant. Heavy on meat (as you would expect) well cooked and tasty. Chocolate mousse was fab, blood orange posset under whelmed. Why do restaurants serve potato as wallpaper paste? Or the Friday special was thin slices of potato in batter and fried! No please just let a good potato speak for itself. Mistake in bill, quickly sorted.

Fantastic restaurant, from the attentive service, perhaps some of the tastiest steaks I've come across and a great selection of wines to with it. I love this restaurant, it's charming and cute, yet super on the ball. Do yourself a favour and visit this restaurant.

I took a client to Hix for lunch and, sadly, came away rather disappointed with the overall experience. Whilst relatively polite, there was no real warmth throughout our lunch – great service can make for such a great experience but, sadly, Hix was lacking in this. We kicked off the lunch with beer served in silver tankards – a nice... More
