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 :))

Sadly, it did not meet my expectations.
Service was shady, lots of silly mistakes, served in different side, messy, overcrowded table, banging tray to my head... food was ok, but I was expecting better, poke bowl was fresh but the rice was inconsistent and it lack flavours. A lamb dish came in which was not on the menu ordered...the creme brulee was overcooked and sugar was too much.
The wine and cocktails were very good.

Restaurant festival menu was superb. Throwing in a free taster as a means of guest testing a new dish was an excellent touch. Cocktails were top class. Service warm and attentive. We will be back asap!

Definitely recommend the tasting menus, great variety, quality and plenty of food. Seating is quite intimate, so can be quite loud depending on neighbouring tables.

Amazing service and excellent food. However, the music was uptempo house music. Not a perfect fit and spoiled what would have been a perfect evening. Oh well

We got the lunchtime Bento boxes along with some tempura, prawn tacos and garlic fries.
All the food we had here tasted unbelievably good. In hindsight we should have got the taster menu to try more items as it's quite rare to enjoy everything that you're served!
Will definitely come back.

This is the 2nd time I've been and sadly it wasnt as good as the 1st...
Food the both my wife and I ordered was not particularly great...maybe bad ordering...
It seemed that service was super slow too - it wasnt particularly busy.
I did get a nice birthday treat with dessert (when it eventually came).
A bit of a shame really as my 1st experience was a lot better

Had the tasting menu
Enjoyed all the items except the beef. Not that it wasn't splendid but it wasn't to our liking.

Chef was pleasant and stopped by to say hello.
Overall i liked it. I dont think it would be a repeat dining experience though...but it's more because it's London, there's lots tp explore

This was for my birthday and it was so good - the tacos were inhaled, the lamb was perfectly cooked. My friend said that the octopus was the best she had ever tasted...nice and tender. The only disappointments I had was the fact that the fries came with butter - lactose intolerance is a cross I have to bear - and that the wine was keenly priced, especially when it goes from a glass straight to a bottle. Maybe a carafe to lessen the blow a bit in between. We are definitely coming back - in December for our Christmas soiree, I might even try and get our team over there. The waiter was lovely - apologies I don't know his name but he's from Spain - and took my threats to kidnap the chef and keep him for myself in good humour!

Was never given our cutlery to eat our food after asking a number of times. Drinks arrived after we had finished our meals even though we asked for our drinks numerous times. Mains arrived without the sides, by the time the sides arrived our mains were cold or finished. Really terrible service.

Rushed to bring us every dish of the tasting menu. No explanation as to what dish was what. Just thrown down on the table. Once we had all the food - most of which went cold whilst we ate it as all brought closely together, the service then stopped and plates remained on the table for nearly an hour. Unimpressed by food and service. Won’t be returning

Most of us chose the very extensive set menu 1 - food was a mix : some things like the Poke style bowl and the desserts were excellent whereas things like the gyoza were overwhelmed by the cherry sauce. Overall, a good experience - unobtrusive service and a wide range of things to try.

The staff were fantastic - very friendly and helpful. But... either the kitchen is way understaffed or it is very poorly organised.
We ordered 6 sharing dishes between 2. Each dish came out one at a time with a long long wait between courses... we were literally twiddling our thumbs between courses. I asked to cancel the last 2 courses as it was getting late but was told they were on their way....
