Booked for lunch and was very exited to go. The menu looked clean, inspiring, and fresh. Was walking past, trying to find the restaurant, when I saw a member of staff remove the signs from the window (she looked less than happy). A few moments...later my phone went with a member of staff apologising that our lunch reservation was cancelled due to members of the kitchen staff being pinged to isolate. One can't be angry under these circumstances. I had intended to ask the gentleman whether he could recommend somewhere else, presuming that the chance of Michelin dining had gone. Instead, before I could ask, he said he had secured a reservation for us at another one star restaurant very near and would we like it. We accepted and had a fab meal (I won't say where here!) If they are this passionate about their customer service then this is clearly a superb restaurant. One feels for all those in the hospitality industry at current and this was a real example of superb service. I look forward to coming and eating with you in the future.More

We came here to celebrate a combination of things- our engagement, a birthday, finishing exams! The food was incredible, and our waiters made us feel so comfortable. We loved hearing all about the food and the wine, and especially loved how much they clearly love...what they do . The lovely sommelier generously topped up our wine making sure we we were never short of a drop, and we finally rolled ourselves home after a top date night.More

Just perfect! From the food to the staff to the overall experience! We stopped here for lunch & my partner and I ordered 4 dishes to share, all exquisite, all very complimentary of each other. Their lunch menu design of small dishes to share works...perfectly & means you get a bit of everything, the portions are really good sizes and you leave feeling extremely satisfied (I don’t think we could’ve managed another dish)! The staff were attentive and really helpful with wine choices (and ideas on where to go for a cocktail afterwards). The pricing is extremely fair. You definitely get what you pay for & the bill was actually less than I imagined. Would definitely come back, and can’t wait to visit again!More

Relaxed ambience combined with good food! It is a nice choice for dinner, has many choices for vegetarians, service is polite but the wine list needs improvement. Value for money

My debut in tripadvisor is writing about my favorite place in London, in my neighborhood, Shoreditch. I've seen some people write bad free reviews and it's unfair that people get a wrong opinion about Lyle´s. Sometimes it is difficult to realize that the seemingly simple...is the most complex. The menu costs 65 pounds and it's hard to get more for less. Highly recommended.More

Atmosphere and staff were lovely and the food was amazing. Great wine list, attentive staff and a classically simple menu that focuses on great product. The menus changes daily so you never know what you’ll get, but we lucked out with a wonderful menu full...of fresh and perfectly cooked ingredients. Would definitely go back and eat there again.More

Well we booked the Lyle’s because it´s not so easy to get a table on a Saturday evening in London on short notice. In my mind, if a tasting menu has one dish that’s astonished me, it´s a perfect evening and the Lyle’s had two...on this evening: The Calcots (spring onions) with egg yolk and wild garlic was to die for and the backed cream and Harbinger rhubarb as dessert the best dessert of our 4 day foodie tour through London We definitely will come back - if Boris let us in!More
