Loverly little lunch spot with my husband. we both had speciality salads and a glass of wine. We sat in the alley with the other restaurants surrounding. This was december in london so not normally the time for sitting outside! great little impromptu stop thoroughly enjoyed will not hesitate to go back or seek out other Rockets.

Attended a work Christmas Party at Rocket and had a really great time. The staff were not only efficient and tentative but they also managed our party incredibly well. The food was absolutely delicious and served in good time. Rocket is set in a little courtyard off New Bond Street and its such a lovely oasis - I will definitely be returning with friends. Thoroughly recommend to all.

Visited with my girlfriend on New Years Eve for dinner. Whilst the resturant was quiet due to it being early in the evening. The staff were more than happy for us to sit outside which was brilliant. Set in a quiet backstreet the atmosphere was really nice. The Pizza's we had were fantastic and so were the cocktails. Overall a great experience and we will definately be visiting again!

I went to the rocket with a team from work for a Christmas Lunch and was very disappointed with the quality and service. We arrived a little bit early so were left in the bar with a feeling that we were causing them a great inconvenience (based on that experience I would never dream of going to that bar just for a drink).
When we got to the restaurant the serving staff were pleasant enough but the food was pretty terrible and the vegetables were under cooked. We were even charged full price for somebody who couldn't make it because of illness. That would be understandable if the food was bought in especially but that was clearly not the case.
We complained about the food and got a free bottle of wine thrown in but were still charged £60/head including drinks, excluding the price of drinks bought in the bar. That was simply outrageous for the experienced offered.

Loved Rocket, found it in a tiny street while looking for Victoria Secret - had a wonderful spinach calzone. Very, very busy, yet the service was great.
