Although booking a while back we still couldn't get a table until 9.45 and it was well worth the wait..four people have to sit on the long table as the single tables are for two, not a problem as everyone keeps to own space unless making a recommendation.which they did in our visit for a Georgain wine. The salads were... More

I love the salads here, flavours like never tasted anywhere else. It's a chain but it still feels quite unique. I would recommend going at lunch time as dinner can be quiet expensive as dishes are really small.

I love Yotam Ottolenghi food. I went there for lunch and we were told no reservation can be made and were asked to turn up. We turned up at 1pm and was served quite shortly after a table was available. While the table is a bit on small side, it is enough as we just want to have a plate... More

I ate here on 4 July 2014. Lovely sunny day in London. I ate sunny fresh salads and washed it down with an English Rose. I happen to be vegan so lots of restaurants don't cater for people who don't eat meat and dairy. Here they did but without consciously trying. My meat eating friend ate similar food and loved...

You can expect lots of great flavors at this well-known restaurant, especially in the vegetable dishes, such as the very delicious fried zucchini blossom. But the the food doesn't live up to the hype - the beets in the beet salad were underdone, to my taste, and the desserts, while beautiful, weren't anything special. Expect to eat at long tables...

I really like this place, we came here for lunch and the menu was great. Lots of different and interesting salads and the food was delicious. Unfortunately I couldn't manage a pudding but the cakes looked amazing. Would definitely come back, its a shame that not all veggie places are this interesting. Also sharing our table was Kimberley Walsh so... More
