Me and my boyfriend went to London the weekend before Valentine's, and came across this lovely restaurant. The service was brilliant and food came very quickly! Very fussy with my food but enjoyed it very much. I hope to return soon, thank you!!

The staff were amazing with my 3 children. Books and crayons were provided to keep them entertained. Food was great, good choices for the kids. Best of all the kids ate free and unlimited drinks bonus. During our stay we visited every night. It was very central to our stay by trafulgar square.

I have not eaten at a Garfunkels restaurant for many years. However on a visit to London last Friday with my wife and seven year old grand daughter we decided to give it a try. What a great experience it was. An uncomplicated wide range of food and more than adequate options for a child. The service was attentive, waiting... More

Visited on an early Thursday evening. We were seated immediately at a centre table. The whole restaurant is slightly cramped but that doesn't detract from the eating or comfort. After about 10 minutes drinks and food orders were taken.... and we waited. And waited. And waited. And waited. You get the idea. The food arrived before our drinks order, after... More

On a cold, busy Saturday night there was a reasonable waiting time for a table. Our order was taken straight away & meals arrived soon after. Very pleasant meal, friendly atmosphere & Karolina was superb. She entertained our toddler & made us all feel very welcome. We felt like we were really being looked after by her & look forward...

As we had visited this restaurant before we sort of knew what to expect. The service could be improved but it was very busy. The food took some time to arrive but when it did it was piping hot. Mine was the spinach and ricotta cannelloni, the outside was very hot but the inside didn't seem to be fully cooked.... More

We came here for a quick breakfast while staying in a hotel across the road. The service was poor, and the waiters spend the whole time we were there arguing about something. The food buzzer from the kitchen kept going off, food was obviously being cooked and left out on the side for a long time before a waiter went... More

Today my friend and I went to London for the day to visit our friend. Bearing in mind time we were on a limited time frame and had much to do, we entered the restaurant for a 'quick lunch' that was advertised on the menu. I was shocked to see such small spaces between the (also small) tables, and throughout... More

Myself and two friends waited for over an hour for three very simple dishes. The waiting staff did not offer so much as an apology, and were extremely unhelpful when we asked to see the manager and later, to pay separately. The average quality food was not worth the exceedingly long wait - especially since the restaurant is advertised as... More
