We visited Ham Yard restaurant on Saturday for pre theatre. It was our first visit.
From the moment we walked in we lived the ambience of the place. The staff were very attentive and we had a lovely corner table.

We both went off the set menu which included a glass of Prosecco and was very good value £25 for 3 courses.

I had chicken escalope and my husband had sea bass for main course, but all our courses were delicious. Will definitely be visiting again.

Went with friends for dinner on Saturday to celebrate my birthday and we had the 3 course set menu with Prosecco. The food was delicious and we all chose the pistachio tiramisu for dessert which was amazing. Service was very attentive and the restaurant surprised me with a mini cake with candle. This was our first visit and we will definitely be visiting again.

Valentines dinner at Ham Yard was a lovely experience. Tables discreetly positioned apart for privacy. Great set menu for the evening. Started with pink champagne - a lovely touch. Starter of scallops and celeriac cream was divine. My beef wellington was excellently cooked and delicious to taste. The place was busy but service was still attentive. Well done and thank you!

On the surface this looked like a great restaurant, the menu looked good, the pictures of the restaurant itself looked really nice and of course the reviews were overwhelmingly positive. But that wasn't quite the experience I had.

It wasn't terrible, the service was good, maybe even very good, the overall look, including the court yard on the approach was nice. But the food was straight out of the 80's. Again not terrible, but dated and really quite poor.

For starter we had the mackerel, which was the highlight of the meal, and the chicken terrine, which had almost no flavour at all and was served with a thin piece of very crisp bread (both a little stale and over toasted). For main we had the seabass and the dover sole. The seabass was ok (just), although it was an error to have it with beurre blanc. The dover sole was awful. Again zero flavour and is just presented on it's own on a plate. We had sides of truffle chips (ok), and tomato and basil salad, which was just a bowl of tomatoes in oil. The side salad that came with the dover sole was so over dressed it was overpowering and quite soggy. The Meunière sauce was also terrible, just a bowl of oil.

Perhaps we made terrible choices, but I couldn't recommend going here. Far from the worst dining experience, but very disappointing.

I've been back to Ham Yard a few times, and never had a bad experience there. The food is excellent, the service is courteous, attentive, and efficient - and I'd recommend that you make use of the sommelier; she's a treasure! And what's great for a central London restaurant is that you're not squeezed into a confined space, cheek-by-jowl with other diners; this restaurant feels spacious.

It was my wife’s birthday. The food, service and ambience was spectacular. The vegan food which we ordered was really good. I mean really good. We will definitely be back again.

Our waitress was charming but unintelligible with a very strong accent.

The rolls were baked hard like bricks and inedible; we told the head waiter.

We both had sole - and both were overcooked; we were also served with green salads which I had specifically asked NOT to have. Neither of us finished our desserts which were frankly not very good.

It was an expensive lunch and very bad value for money; I shall not be back. Shame, because the room is so pleasant.

Booked the Ham Yard to eat at for my mums birthday before seeing Madonna as it was located near the London Palladium. Food was superb 10/10, waiter was very pleasant and helpful and couldn't do enough. Made my mums day very special. Thanks again.

The food was fantastic value for money. However, the waiter was incredibly rude. When asked for the house white, he said 'We don't have a house white - you mean the cheap white?' At almost £9 per glass, this was neither cheap nor a necessary comment! When we asked if we could have our steaks a certain way, as you usually do when ordering steak, he claimed the kitchen was unable to do this but really rudely.

Such a shame considering how fab the food was!

The bar is buzzy and fun. A great place to hang out. The staff looked after us extremely well, finding our group of 5 stools in the bar and then moving us to a table as soon as one become available. This may well have been because we had a table booked for dinner, but none the less very much appreciated. Dinner was also excellent. Fantastic service and very good food. (Would have been excellent but the puddings were not quite up to the level of the rest of our meal.). Expensive restaurant, but undoubtably top notch and worth the expense. I feel you can pay almost as much as a very mediocre restaurant.

Service was not good. We were left for ages before anyone took our order. It was a Saturday lunch service and it was packed but none the less I got the feeling that we were merely on a conveyor belt of diners. The food was expensive and not of the standard I would expect for the price. I would not return.

This was our first time dining at Ham Yard (although we have used other Firmdale restaurants in the past).

Everything about our visit was top notch from our arrival to departure. Service was attentive without being intrusive and the food excellent, especially the impromptu “birthday cake with candle” which was presented at the end of the lunch. Very thoughtful and appreciated.

Thank you to all the staff who made it such a fun and enjoyable lunch. We will certainly be coming back.
