Service was great however food wasn't the standard I was expecting! Just certain things like the amount of sauces served with a dish and the attention to detail from the chef. Hopefully they were just having a bad day... would like to try again as it came highly recommended but I was a little disappointed.
excellent service . food was disappointing . the cocktails were really bad considering the bar set up
Very good food and very nice place.
Just music was too loud!
But food interesting and truly amazing
The food was exquisite, the cocktails and sake shots were incredible and topped off with a superb atmosphere. You must go and try the Pulpo, the Pollo Picante, the Lamb Chops, BBQ Chicken Karaage (the dipping sauce is unbelievable), and the magical ball for dessert was mouthwatering!! Loved the meal and it is great for a date, just dinner or a group setting. Highly recommend this place
Yellow tail ceviche and the black cod is a must!
Fantastic waiter - gentleman with trimmed beard.
Forgotten his name but fantastic
Food was phenomenal! - veggie options out of this world
Wow - will be coming back (post covid lockdown...)
Fave restaurant in London
Fabulous restaurant! Everything from the service to the music choice was en pointe!!! Ambience was perfect. Will be coming back soon. Shoutout to Miguel for the awesome service :-)
While the food was absolutely stunning I wish I could say the same about the service. We attended the brunch and arrived late, our booking was not held until we arrived we did not get the full 90 mins of brunch (we did call ahead to let them know). Our food arrived to the table at all different times, not normally and issue with sushi however we picked mains and sides and these didn’t come out together. One of our mains arrived after our bottomless had ended. We had to chase the servers for top ups on drinks.
The staff were amazingly attentive at first but after the first hour I was actively ignored with staff continually Gesturing/saying they would come right back. They didn’t and I found that really poor!
Fantastic service, amazing food and cocktails. We had a brilliant time - thank you!
Please improve the service
Amazing food and upbeat ambiance. Always recommended.
Food quality wasn't as good as last time I visited. Lamb chops mega chewy, and Black cod was cold. Disappointing
very noisy and super expensive for quite normal food. food is japanese, spanish and peruvian....interesting mixture but not good value
Without a doubt incredible service and all staff are very attentive. Food never disappoints! Thank you for making our anniversary special.
We really enjoyed the food, every dish which we had was special and atmosphere was lovely!
Our waiter was exceptional,he does very good job.
Exceptions was much more. The food was cold and the mocktail was very watery
I had a great time with my girls
Amazing atmosphere, Adam and Gabriela were very friendly and helpful.
Amazing food as always and great vibes. It’s great to be back!
Spend my 25th birthday with close friends at the restaurant. We all enjoyed our stay and will definitely return!
We frequently visit chottomate so that in itself explains how great the place is, constantly new dishes are added to the menu, waiters that know exactly what they are serving, buzzy atmosphere, top 5 favourite restaurants in London!
Nice food on the brunch but just not enough of it, very small portions.
We paid for the bottomless champagne and cocktails package but service was slow, so we don't feel we really got our moneys worth. Not enough staff to keep your glass topped up! Wouldn't recommend
Food and service were extremely excellent. Cocktails as also innovative and tasty! They do play very loud music to inform diners that prefer a quieter ambience! Will definitely be visiting again.
Overhyped and overpriced. Food was ok, lots of sauces to cover the actual taste of the dishes. Super fast service - almost feels like they want to rush you out of the restaurant, making the dining experience not very enjoyable. Definitely not worth the fame!
