Description: Jamie Oliver's Fifteen is a 'non-profit' restaurant, bar and charity near Old Street in Islington, London. We cook elegant, rustic, honest food that flicks your senses from classic, nostalgic flavours to new, inspired dishes cooked by super-skilled young minds. With a buzzing cocktail bar and a kitchen led by Robbin Holmgren. The menu at Fifteen is the kind of food Jamie and Robbin want to eat when they're at their happiest. Taking inspiration from around the world, all the dishes on our menu are designed for sharing. Using incredible British produce, whole animals and fish are butchered and prepared on site every day, and paired with ingredients so good they really speak for themselves.

We visited London to celebrate our 7th year anniversary and we chose Fifteen for the occasion. The food was good and special. The service was amazing. Our waitress was so friendly and she even made us a small surprise when we mentioned where we come from and the occasion. Excellent atmosphere and gosh it was a nice place and a great evening!

Visited this restaurant today and my wife had bought two vouchers from Amazon. What a disappointment. Have been a big fan of Jamie's for many years having enjoyed his TV programs and cook books, so was really looking forward to tasting his food.
Arrived and the place was fully booked, lucky for us we had reservations. No brand named lager only local brewed stuff.... i can see what he has done to promote local business's but you do need to have some variety as well.
After a 15 minute wait at the bar we were seated, and it was a small two seater table next to the oven at the rear of the restaurant. The place was very noisy, and the tables too close to each other, could hear the other tables conversation the whole time i was there!
The menu was a joke infact here is the list:

Starters
Roast parsnip soup & chestnut
Middle white ham, fennel & dill
Brown crab on toast

Mains
Beer-battered whiting, purple sprouting broccoli & herb vinaigrette
Pheasant sausages, borlotti beans & cavolo nero
Pumpkin ravioli, almond cream & crispy garlic

Pudding
Vanilla ice cream
Chocolate & malt mousse
Salted caramel & hazelnut éclair

Now I enjoy a decent selection and choice when it comes to menus, but I felt that each course had two that sounded apauling and this only left one to choose. The selections i made were based on choosing something purely to eat and not because I had a real taste of that food.
The Middle white ham, fennel & dill was ok, nothing special and the portion size sub-standard.
The Pumpkin ravioli, almond cream & crispy garlic was 5 of the smallest ravioli I ever seen and i had them eaten in under 1 minute. I mentioned this to the waitress and that it was tasteless and within 3 minutes the manager came out. I explained that the portions were too small and very tasteless and all i got back was i will relay it back tothe chef, its a new menu so will give him the feedback. ..... No good to me when im still hungry.... although I have to give it to the waitress she did try and sell the side orders as much as she could.....probably as she could see that the main meal wouldnt pass for a starter!
I will say that the dessert was good, but unfortunately too little too late. We finished up and left as soon as possible.
I have been to marco pierre white and gordon ramsays restaurants and have only good things to say about them, this was by far the worst celebrity chef restaurant ive been to.

Overall good food The service was satisfactory. The only pressing negative about this restaurant is the bar stools are not comfortable and the metal seating when dining feels a little awkward. Too close to neighbouring tables -just a comfort issue :-). Try to get a booth if you eat here.

My fiance and me enjoyed a dinner at Fifteen as part of a trip to London. The food was outstanding, every meal had a nice twist to it. We ordered spontaneously and shared everything as we felt that the short menu offered many interesting combinations - from a more classical pairing of delicious homemade bread (the reviewer being German should give that some credibility) and baked mussels to a slightly more exciting combination of a cheese-truffle pizza with a side of char-grilled radicchio salad. The culinary highlight was the perfect malt custard cake at the end.

What made the evening perfect was the enjoyable atmosphere. It is clear that this is a matter of taste in the end, but the combination of stylish interior, warm and friendly service and an appealing young and relaxed touch felt like the perfect combination to prevent that tense official feel that always threatens to ruin high-class dinners.

I can only recommend the Fifteen, but it should be clear to anyone going there: this won't be a cheap evening.
