Great service but rubbish steaks

The waiter was brilliant but the food was a lack down. Most of us had rib eye steak. requested medium but got rare. Waiter was great about it and put it back on the grill.

Had dinner here last Saturday and was delighted with everything: food is gorgeous, staff is friendly & knowledgeable, view over the water is delightful, and all only a short walk away from Kings Cross station.

Visited with my husband and brother and had a lovely lunch. The boys steaks were tender, juicy and perfectly cooked. My vegetable dish was lovely too. Brilliant location! Will definitely be back!

We were invited to dinner at I'd looked at the menu and reviews and was really looking forward to it. We were in the private dining room in a group and had a sharing menu. The 4 starters were uninspiring, a terrine we had was bland, there was a grilled cheese pastry which was leathery, the other two starters were... More

Dear Jan, Thank you very much for reviewing Rotunda following your recent visit which I felt compelled to share straight away with Jake our head chef and his team. The sharing starters obviously haven’t hit the mark on this occasion and it’s very disappointing they have slipped through the net under the normally very attentive kitchen team. Thanks to your...

I'm really amazed to hear some of the bad reviews on here. I can honestly say I have never experienced anything but excellent service, fresh, good quality food and generous portions. I am more than happy to pay good money for good food - and this place never lets us down.

Horrible overpriced burgers in a noisy characterless bar with no atmosphere - saved by the the kind attention of a waiter called Nico, who prioritised our food order (after we'd been told it was a 30-minute wait for bar meals) so we could get to the theatre in time. Glad he did because I wouldn't have liked to spend a... More

Hi Jackie, I’m sorry to hear that on this occasion we haven’t lived up to our usual standards, especially on a product that so regularly gets a lot of praise from customers, and is a real favourite here at Rotunda. I hope that next time you’re in the area or coming to Kings Place you’ll give us a second chance... More

Everything was unsatisfactory. A table by the door (the place was only half full,) slow service, incorrect service, cold overcooked food, missing items, incorrect bill, warm white wine, table cleared whilst some still eating - then table NOT cleared when everyone had finished. Over priced. Waiter was more concerned about his hair than his customers. Very very disappointing. Restaurants should... More

Dear Phil G, I profusely apologise for your recent experience you had to endure at Rotunda and I have no excuse to make up for the disappointing service you received. It looks like we failed miserably on what I would call basic catering and hospitality errors. I can assure you it is not the standard I want our guests to... More

The food was average and the portion size (especially the vegetarian options) was tiny. We did eat from the set menu but at £20 for 2 courses and £25 for 3 courses we expected to, at least, feel full after eating! We were all still hungry and had to eat after the show. The grilled food was often on the... More

Hi there, It's with great disappointment to hear about your recent visit to Rotunda. The set menu is designed to give every diner value for money and at the same time facilitate speed of service for those attending the concerts throughout the day. I can only apologise that you weren’t satisfied with the latter and still felt hungry. I would... More

The restaurant has a nice modern decor with a great view of the canal. The service was good. The steak was great. What's not to like?
