“Great steak, great environment, dodgy service”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

I thought the food was excellent, but the poor service (slow, confusion over orders etc) was poor. Stylish, but somehow misses the mark.

“Best cocktails ever in the coolest art deco bar”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

First time here and it took my breath away. A lover of all things art deco I have been to many places but this was one of the classiest without being over the top like some visited. Once part of the Regent Palace Hotel built in 1915 and then the largest Hotel in Europe it has been many things over the years and now transformed back in part to its formar glory. The cocktails are reasonably priced ranging from £9 - 25 and they are worth every penny. I started with the waiters signature cocktails Guns and Roses an infusion of liqueurs but with a twist using various herbs like sage and rosemary to give an excotic bite. One cocktail had liquorish powder on the top that just exploded in the mouth. Staff bent over backwards to please and the bar nibbles are well priced and plentiful. We didn't eat in the restaurant but have booked to go back. Aged hung meat and an extensive range of world cheeses, just my kinda place. Purrrrrrrfect

“Fabulous setting, great steaks but...”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is an uber cool restaurant with real style, the steaks are very special, service is friendly but perhaps and I hate to say this, it just misses the mark. On a Friday there was a fair few empty tables so the cavernous space didn't really have that much of a buzzy atmosphere. The cost is quite eye-watering, a round of cocktails, two courses for four and a couple of bottles of Pinot Noir and a bottle of Pinot Grigio came to £386. And those prices you can consider almost any restaurant in London. If you are looking for a great steak then go, if you are looking for a really memorable dining experience then maybe go...

“Stunning Setting, Average Steak”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

After 30 or so days away from Texas, we decided it was time for a good steak. I searched TA for a steak restaurant near the theatre district for a meal before an evening performance of Les Mis....I was pleased to discover Mash, one of the top rated steak houses in all of London and one of the top 100 overall. was a mere 10 minute walk to the theatre.


The restaurant is visually stunning. The service was friendly, though uneven (I think our server was new. She frequently asked others to assist her with menu options, wine choice and so forth).

I ordered Uruguayan beef from the range of options. I have been to Uruguay and experienced some of the best free range, grass fed beef on the planet. I expected the same at a top London steak house. Um, no. Not a bad steak, lacking the flavor of a great Uruguayan steak.

The highlight of the evening was a reasonably priced (by London standards) Catena Malbec from Argentina. That and the ambiance of the restaurant.

Our experience reminded me of another post about seafood in Omaha, Nebraska--"you can get it, but that's not their specialty." For a great steak, save for a holiday in Montevideo. Or come on out to West Texas. There are at least five steak houses in Abilene (population 100,000) better than Mash.
