Cosy restaurant with a great vibe. Was quite disappointed with the food if I’m honest, to me it was quite tasteless and our fries were undercooked. Definitely not worth the price.

The food was very disappointing, all the dishes had a similar flavour, nothing exciting or adventurous. The lamb chops were labelled as a main dish and cost £18 pound something, and when they came out it was 2 tiny pieces of lamb with some pomegranate seeds, i don't know how you could class that as a main dish?? and same with this dish, pretty uninspiring flavours. If the food was half the price my review would be much more positive but the food we got for the price we paid was unacceptable. The overall vibe of the restaurant was really nice, great decor and a nice atmosphere however the food really let the place down

Was very much unimpressed with Black Roe, been wanting to go for a long time and attended on NYE however four out of my eight dishes I picked were over cooked or burnt which was disappointing. The atmosphere wasn’t that great considering it was New Year’s Eve seemed very quiet didn’t feel like a special occasion the staff were the best thing as they had good service just the food wasn’t that great quality compared to the other restaurants I often go to in the Mayfair area

Dined here on New Years Eve. Absolutely delicious food and cocktails! Highly recommend the whole lobster mac n cheese. Good portions of food beautifully presented. Service was attentive and friendly with a fab atmosphere. Very much looking forward to dining at Black Roe again.

The ambience in the restaurant is great and the decor is very cool. The food however wasn’t as good as I had expected and prices were of course reflective of the area. Unsure whether i’d return...

I have been here for my birthday for the last 3 years and this year was disappointing. Food was not as good as previous years and service was pretty poor (food we ordered didn’t turn up, wasn’t offered a desert menu etc).

Delicious cocktails and food and friendly and knowledgeable service. Loved the asparagus tempura and bbq pork.
The music is too loud for a restaurant and the prices are a little steep (13.5% service charge for example) but overall we really enjoyed our evening.

This is our second visit and will definitely not be our last. We had one of the tasting menus (like last time) and it was out of this world. Every single dish (6 dishes plus 2 veg and desert) was exceptional.... and decent portions. The service was perfect, once again - everyone that works here has a passion for the place, and everything that they serve, whether you have a question about a dish or one of the exciting signature cocktails. Simply awesome food, service and ambience. Great value when you consider the quality of food.

Food is quite good but portion/dishes are so small that it makes the all experience very expensive for what it is.
2 small lamb chops for £18.50, sorry but I don't see how this kind of price can be justified.
Service is ok, but we were served the wrong food, we mentioned it after 2 min, then they took it away after 5 min without even asking if we touched it.

My first visit to Black Roe and it was lovely . The relaxed setting and cosy seating were a great start to the evening . Our favourite dish was the tempura prawns were amazing the best I’ve had anywhere . Other dishes were presented well and tasty. Would recommend highly .

Stunning food, with an elegant setting. If you want to be able to dine in luxury then this is the place! Pricing is on the expensive side, however, it is definitely good value for money.

We arrived a little early and so we went to the bar and had a fabulous cocktail each-both a little original and very enjoyable and the bar team were helpful in deciding.
The tasting menu was outstanding and each course was incredibly tasty and went well with a glass of white and then a glass of red wine.
We unusually returned to the bar after the meal and the second cocktail was just as impressive.

I have been to black roe once before and liked it but this time the food was ok and the service was terrible. We had to wait super long between dishes, kept chasing the waiters for water / orders / drinks as they wouldnt come to us. The overall experience was disappointing.

Lovely staff, not good food - overly greasy - chips / squid/ prawns broccoli over cooked.
Sweet and sour pork was quite boring and tasteless - there was nothing special about it which was disappointing :( it didn’t seem fresh or healthy but staff were nice

The only reason for 4 stars for ambience was because they sat our party of 6 at a high table. It’s difficult sitting on ‘bar high’ chairs comfortably. If you lean forward to move the chair you could topple over! Otherwise delicious food... lobster mac & cheese surprisingly good :))
