I shall miss the genial, welcoming charm of Steak+'s erstwhile proprietor, who has vanished like a puff of smoke to pastures unknown. He had a splendid, rather eccentric old-world presence. So you don't feel as if you've wandered into the exotic realms of a Lawrence Durrell or Olivia Manning novel any more. Shame. The good news is that the food at Steak+ still represents sound value. The new regime's two-course £7 set lunch was splendid at the second try (the first go suffered from oversalting.) Try the Minute Steak, which was generously sized, and decorated with a competent dijonnais sauce. The decor has been standardised a bit so the furniture is more orthodox and less interesting, but that's a minor detail. This place is still a great place to retreat for a tasty, inexpensive lunch or dinner. Watch that salt though!

After reading the reviews on here and View London I was expecting great things and so was a little disappointed.

Firstly it was cheap very cheap, everything was half price so steaks between £9-13. The steaks were also really tasty and well cooked. Starters were free, A salad which had been pre prepared as it came out in seconds. I know it was free so I shouldn’t complain but it just didn’t match up to the steak and I would rather have paid for something better. The wine was quite good and again inexpensive. The restaurant was very quiet which I found a little odd as it was valentine’s day and the atmosphere was quite formal but if you like formal then it’s not a problem.

The Desert, tiramisu, was above average but not spectacular, coffee was pretty good

Overall great Steak around average for everything else and cheap.

As Louis Walsh would say "I loved everything about it!"

The moment you walk through the door you are made to feel special and the feeling stays with you long after you've departed. Wonderful staff create a relaxing atmosphere. Lovely food! What a find!!

Visited Steak+ on Gray's Inn road, they've only recently opened so weren't busy and are still doing their promotional offer to get people in. But more people should! Lovely array of salads and cakes for dessert. We had Christmas turkey dinner for our main which was really yummy! It's unpretentious, friendly, might recommend they make it a bit warmer and change the music. But well worth a visit and the service was briliant, so kind, attentive and generous. Was chuffed with the extra piece of cake too...

If there is a better burger in London than that which is served at Steak+, then I have never tasted it. Thick, juicy, and bursting with flavour, their cheeseburger certainly tastes as though it's made from prime beef mince, so one feels perfectly happy to ask for it on the pink side of medium: which is exactly how I have asked for it to be served on the several occasions I've been to this new restaurant on Grays Inn Road; and each time I've gone away licking my lips with pleasure. I also like a restaurant that's not afraid to depart from the boring norm and Steak+ is nothing if not quirky. Sultry jazz and 40s cabaret classics pulse away discreetly in the background. Immediately inside the entrance are tables laden with salads, cold cuts, cakes, pastries and sweetmeats in a display that looks faintly Roman in its studied opulence - briefly, you look around for a toga or an imperial guard. The seating is a harlequinade of antique sofas and carvers in different styles. The proprietor beams with pleasure as he walks forward, hand proffered to shake yours, to welcome you in his Balkan-accented English. You could be in a Lawrence Durrell novel. But you're not, you're in grey old Grays Inn Road WC2, and thankful that this dash of pizazz has arrived here and at very affordable prices too. The burger comes with good thick chips and is preceded by a salad from the copious and interesting salad bar (selected for you, not by you, so say if you do or don't want something.) Also on the menu are steaks (fillet or sirloin) and poussin. There's a decent little wine list too.
The dessert cakes and pastries are somewhat variable in my experience. But this thoroughly enjoyable new place deserves support. Recommended.
