Friendly, knowledgeable staff; excellent menu and first rate wine list. It was good to be back!
Food was mostly good with a decent house wine on offer for the week. Lobster had great flavour but was slightly rubbery and possibly over-cooked.
A delightful place for lunch after a visit to the Royal Academy . Excellent value Daily Menu and very pleasant staff Will definitely visit again.
Always enjoy Fish works. It has a pleasant atmosphere and the service is good.
The Fish and chips is to be recommended as it is crunchy and a large portion.
It’s was horrible. The grilled food was served cold and literally without salt or any flavour for that matter. The Seafood was not fresh and lacked flavour immensely. Literally the chef and the team here need to learn to cook. Horrible experience will never recommend anyone to go here. It was a birthday lunch and also mentioned on the notes but sadly nothing was done or mentioned to us like a dessert with happy birthday. I was badly disappointed.
The Taramasalata is tamer than the Greek original. No Atlantic prawn on offer, which is a shame. Lobster is really good, but you have to order a whole one which can be a bit much for some people
A Restaurant That Leaves a Bad Taste in the Mouth
I booked for a Special Seafood Platter lunch for me and a client. Beforehand and on arrival nobody told me they didn't have the fish for the platter. After 15 minutes or so they announced we would have to choose other dishes. Lots of things on the rest of the menu were not available either. I chose whitebait as a starter but no rouille arrived with the dish. When I asked where it was I was told they didn't have any! Mayonnaise? None of that either!
I won't bore you with more, but it was a disaster of incompetence. No manager came to explain or apologise - we felt rather sorry for the very junior member of staff who waited table.
At last, when we asked for the bill, a sort of manager arrived with a card reader. I pointed out that there was supposed to be a £10 reduction off the bill and she said "Oh yes. If you don't ask you don't get"!
So in summary, despite a great-looking menu, they don't have much available. They can't be arsed to say that to the customers. What is left is bland and missing components. They happily overcharge and don't apologise.
An absolute shambles!
If you like fish this is one of the best places to go in London without it costing fortune.
Staff were friendly and efficient. The food was good but I felt the portions were on the small size for the money, eg a small dish of olives, bread on the menu as an extra but only one thin slice, coffee cups on the small side. I think they could have been more generous.
Excellent dinner out. Staff very attentive and did not rush us for the 10pm curfew. Will return
What a brilliant dinner night myself and my partner experienced at FishWorks in Swallow Street. We'll be heading there soon. Thank you for a memorable experience. The food was delightful and both desserts were exceptional.
Mediocre. Good eat
We are seafood lovers who have frequented Fishworks. Never disappointed
Very good seafood and kind staff.
We got fish and chips, grilled salmon and oysters with champagne offer.
Excellent food especially the sea bream and dover sole. Service unobtrusive.
Eaten here several times. Always excellent choice of fresh fish beautifully prepared.
Excellent dinner, the family really enjoyed the meal and the evening.
Very nice atmosphere, service excellent and food really good
Pleasant lunchtime spot very close to the Royal Academy
Took a while for someone to take our orders. Main courses felt very overpriced for the quality of the food.
The food was lovely but we were still a bit hungry when we left (no starter, only a main course with a side each) and no dessert on the menu so we went somewhere else for one
So nice to have the place open again and lovely to have a free welcoming glass of Prosecco. Service and food as good as ever.
Great place so sad for the staff regarding the virus
This restaurant has a calm and relaxed atmosphere. The service was friendly and relaxed and the food excellent. My only issue is the very high prices - £36 for a small Dover sole with no accompaniments. It was delicious and beautifully cooked but the price was a bit over the top
Service was poor, food was abhorrent and we will not return.
Really excellent fish soup, followed by blackened mackerel from the menu of the day, both delicious and good value; the waiter was helpful and knowledgeable.
Excellent fish choices always fresh, cooked to perfection. Friendly attentive staff!
If I am back in London soon will go back great seafood and service
Wine was great to
We had a very good lunch, the fish was delicious and really fresh.
Waiter and waitress attentive and friendly. Not too busy on a Friday at 1.00
Scottish salmon and yellowfin. Keeps me going back
Very good pre theatre menu and great service and the quality and presentation was very good.
Fishworks consistently offers the freshest fish I know of in London
Excellent value for the set menu and very good quality fresh fish and presentation. I am never disappointed when I go there.
Disappointed to receive prawns instead of calamari which we were told by the waitress that that was not on the menu, though it’s something we had ordered before. Perhaps the menus differ brach to branch. Other than that, great fresh food, lovely wine and overall great experience.
Excellent food, lovely location.
The pre-theatre set menu (available up to 6pm) was good value for money and the wine was reasonably priced. A good location, close to West End theatres.
The menu has provided good choice varieties. I asked for pan fried fish and was told this was not provided for. The grilled salmon is very good. No complaint.
We had the pre-theatre menu which worked perfectly
Service was just right and food was good if not fantastic
Very fresh oysters. Delicious grilled lobster. Very attentive service. And all reasonably priced, especially for Mayfair
Very nice. Been there many times. Food delicious but getting expensive. Nice friendly staff
