This was a great restaurant to pop into with no prior reservation. The staff were friendly and welcoming & the food was very good value. A nice experience all round.

We went in for breakfast because once you factored in the fact that drinks appeared to be included - it was cheaper. Sadly once we had sat down and started ordering food we realised that this was not the case, there was fine print on the menu - only the tops ups were free. Pretty average on the whole -... More

Me and my boyfriend visited garfunkels outside of Paddington on a Monday night. The place was fairly busy for a Monday. We were seated quickly and got drinks fast. We ordered starters and mains and our starters came out with reasonable speed. However, my potatoe skins were warm not hot. The meatball start was fantastic on the other hand. We... More

Well this place is a shambles!!!! My daughter and I ordered and when my husband arrived he ordered. He got his food within minutes!!! Twenty minutes later we where still waiting!!!! When it arrived the burger was overcooked and dry and the meatballs should be called golf balls!!!! Will not return. Such a shame as years ago Garfunkels served quality!!!!

I've been here last saturday with my partner. After waiting outside in the cold for 30 minutes we finally got a table next to a big table of 20 noisy teenagers. We had to wait about 20 minutes before a waiter came up to us to take our order (understanding that it was a busy day). Our drinks came after... More

We turned up late on a Saturday night so weren't surprised when we had to wait fifteen minutes but we were ok with this. Service was good with Piero making us laugh and checking everything was well with us. Our starters of potato skins was nice but slightly bland. Would recommend maybe a pot of butter also? The steak and... More

We had pre-booked a table qat this restaurant; however we arrived early and was immediately shown to our table. The staff were really friendly and we felt as if we were really special. Our order was quickly taken, and the meals were served in a reasonable time. The dishes were well presented with good size helpings. Next time in London... More
