Lovely food

This was very tasty food and the waitress was friendly. Steak was perfectly cooked. I would go again but probably not order a cocktail again as it was too sour for me .

After having ate at the Steak and Lobster in London (Radisson Bloomsbury), I did not think it could get any better. However, I was sadly mistaken, this is the best steak I have had in YEARS. cooked to perfection, I did have a Stilton and wine sauce, but think REALLY it does not need anything. It was PERFECTION.

Went to celebrate with friends. We had 2 lobsters & 2 steaks, the steaks were cooked as requested and the lobsters were both grilled as requested. All 4 meals were really good. The endless salad was lovely with a delicious dressing. The fries were also endless which was nice as they too were lovely. The waitress brought finger bowls which... More

Absolutely terrible! My friends ordered the steak and didn't like how it was cooked.whereas two of us ordered the veg option and the rissoto was horrible. The leafy green things inside the rissoto tasted so bad. After that meal we both left with a stomach ache that left us sick all night. Never going back!

Couples dinner: I had lobster, he had steak. Was cooked very well and tasted lovely. Service very good, friendly waiter. However a few small niggles that don't quite give it 5/5: dirty wine glass on the table, unlimited fries were pretty small and measly and mayo, ketchup etc was served in a big pot that had already been dipped into...

I had been looking forward to a visit to this restaurant ever since it opened, what was there not to like? Steak and lobster are my two favourite things! The restaurant was completely empty so we already assumed we were in for a good visit as the chef would only have our food to focus on! Firstly we ordered a... More

Had the rib eye steak with unlimited fries and salad! Can't complain it was lovely, but ran out of chips, as only a small portion! Asked for some more, but had actually finished our meal before they arrived!!
