Lovely food and nice to try something new. Staff could do with relaxing a little though. Enjoyed our experience and will return! Lovely wines too

Food is great. Service is second to none. Love coming here for breakfast! The scrambled tofu is to die for. The cakes are all incredible too. I love the chocolate tart with the mascarpone cream + the vegan yuzu and pistachio the best. Would recommend!

The food and the service during our evening meal was of excellent quality and good flavours. However, for an average of two little dishes each, one glass of wine, and half a desert each, the bill came to £50 (inclusive of service) per person £200...for 4)and we left peckish. The prices have clearly escalated significantly and for banquette dining on a shared table this is considerably more than a private members club. I guess they are cashing in on our Covid savings. I would limit the food to takeaway in the day.More

Does what it says on the tin really - all dishes were very tasty and exquisitely presented with great complimentary flavours. The attention to detail and effort put into the vegetable dishes was particularly noteworthy. The Cod dish was delicious, we could have, and nearly...did, order it again. You must have the flourless chocolate tart. You must. Service was very friendly, helpful and quick - shout out to Gio, thanks for making our evening great in all aspects!More

Really delicious food, excellent staff who made sure that one of my guests’ allergies were accommodated, lovely laidback ambiance during dinner. My only criticism - dishes are recommended to be shared; I think the portion sizes served should be a bit more generous to reflect...this.More

We had the best experience at Ottolenghi. Went before seeing our favorite band, Dawes, at the Islington Assembly Hall. we were visiting from the states and Ottolenghi came highly recommended. The cold and warm dishes were great and we really enjoyed the wine that our...server recommended. The staff was awesome and extremely hospitable!More

Casual - but upmarket service. Great food - but not over priced. Well done to the waiting staff and kitchen crew for making us so welcome. We were so pleasantly surprised and our tastebuds were surprised. Then at the end we were offered a gift...of a surprise cake in a lovely box to take a way. So good - we have already told all our friends and cannot wait to come back. BIG THANK YOUMore

Looked forward to this but, sadly, immensely disappointed. We love Ottolenghi's food/recipes...all packed with flavour. However, this meal was certainly not packed with flavour, nor was the ambience! Will never return, nor recommend.

We arrived on time but still waited a short while....no problem. It was packed for good reasons. The plates are a bit small especially the starters. For the two of us, we ordered aubergine with tahini and a lemon ricotta that was great and the...beef capriccio with sour cream and shallots. The aubergine was better although...we did enjoy the capriccio. Glad we didn't order more before the mains came. Our next dish was roasted quail that was OK as it could have been done just a bit more. It had a peanut sambal and marinated radish covered in a plum sauce...would have better if cooked a bit more. We then had the pumpkin with pine nuts and whipped goat cheese that was excellent...why can't I do that at home? Actually, I can and will sometime. Very simple but very good. The service was medium I thought but certainly good.More

It can be as formal or relaxed as you wish. It really is a "no pressure" type place. Have a lovely meal!

Sorry don't know, suggest just phone them up or drop them a note. We like it here and by London prices it isn't too outrageous. The flavours are interesting mixes and we have never been disappointed. If Theodoros reckons it... More
