Roganic first opened in 2011 in Marylebone as a two-year pop-up. Five years later Roganic returned to London, bringing elements of L’Enclume, Simon Rogan’s two Michelin star restaurant in The Lake District.

Forward-thinking and imaginative, expect only the freshest and most exceptional array of produce from the countries best suppliers, including Simon’s ‘Our Farm' in The Lake District.

Roganic holds four AA Rosettes and was awarded it’s first Michelin star in 2018, retaining it in 2019.

Running alongside Roganic is Aulis London, a development kitchen and eight seat chef’s table which opened in Soho in October 2017.

“We really enjoyed being there first time around and it feels so right to be back. We had so much fun last time Roganic was in London and I’m confident that the second time around will be no different”
Simon Rogan

Very charming (if not exciting) setting for a lunch menu in which a short - and seemingly simple - menu is realised to a very high quality.

This is our second visit. I was worried since I have seen a lots of bad reviews, but I am glad that I trust my instinct to give it a chance as we did enjoy it the first time round. And we didn’t disappoint it the second time round at all. The food was amazing except one dish which is not to mine fast bud ( dill yogurt ) the rest of the menu are great. The service is also very good just good amount of attention from staff they are really attentive but not in our face .

This was a fantastic dining experience.
We celebrated a birthday in style.
Every dish/mouthful of the tasting menu (they only do 2 dinner tasting menus, shorter available midweek) was a delight.
There were (I think) 7 starters and 5 mains.
The wine pairing was great, too.
Staff were fabulous, efficient but friendly.
Two little quirks: 1) they give you the menu in a sealed envelope to look at only afterwards and 2) we got some takeaway sticky toffee pudding to take home.
Absolutely right quantities of sublimely delicious food and drink.
Quite expensive, as per their website published prices, but 100% worth it.

Roganic is a taste of Simon Rogan's food in the style of L'Enclume up in Cartmel (one of the best restaurants I have been to). Roganic is excellent. Great food, friendly service. Good value too for a london restaurant of this quality. Definitely come for the food as your conversation will revolve around the 11 or so courses. The room itself could be a little cosier.

Superb food, showcasing the best ingredients, expertly prepared with simple complementary flavours. Proves that fantastic food doesn’t need to be complicated. All delivered with the highest level of service, by a team who clearly also believe in the restaurants core values.
A Great sommelier provided an equally considered wine pairing that followed the same ethos in responsible sourcing.
I’ve been lucky enough to also eat at Lenclume and Rogan & Co, and Roganic is absolutely on the same level....a very high level.

An excellent meal in a very cool and down to earth place. The service was exemplary as was the food; it's quite possibly one of the best meals I've ever had. The chap I dined with booked it again for a few weeks' time, that's how good it was.

Although a nice restaurant and relatively nice menu it did not live up to our expectation from Simon Rogans other restaurants. This is mostly down the experience rather than the food, the waiter was a little cold and did not often explain the dishes served. Also no cheese course was a disappointment.

First time to Roganic, a very good experience. Had the 3 course business lunch with wine flight which at £60 is excellent value for money in town (£35 without wine). There is a small amount of theatre brought into the service with the serving of a pre-starter on a piece of bark, which I am not sure it needed but the rest of the service passed more normally. The portions are on the small side but as there are 3 courses + 2 treats, I did not find this an issue. The starter was Salt baked celeriac which was incredible, main was a slow cooked beef dish which was nicely done but a little “average’ and then a dessert with Rhubarb, “custard’ and an earl grey ice cream. The ice cream for me was a little strong and overpowered the rest of the dish, but again faultlessly executed.

Overall a great experience, use of produce excellent and service impeccable. Perhaps I was expecting too much but the food (against this backdrop) was not the star of the show (with the exception of the celeriac) which was a shame. I will definitely go back and perhaps choose the full tasting menu next time.

Extremely good food served in very small portions in a very noisy atmosphere. The staff were very nice but it was almost impossible to follow their explanations of each dish served.

Been meaning to go since it opened but finally made it- lovely evening- has the wine flight with the meal and did not disappoint. Nor did the food. Did the 6 course and in hindsight the 10 would have been do able- you don't leave stuffed but you certainly don't leave hungry - plus a little goodie bag of breakfast treats!

A very fulfilling experience.
One thing I’d “complain” tho’ -
Since I do not eat beef, an alternative main course was offered - truffle pudding. Altho it still taste nice but as a main course it’s not quite up to scratch - the beef main course both looked and tasted (according to my companion) better than my truffle pudding.

A flavour sensation with every dish! Absolutely loved our meal at Roganic (we did the 6 course short tasting menu which we considered very fair value at £65). My husband had the regular menu while I had a vegetarian option, which didn’t compromise in the slightest on quality or flavour. As each dish centres around seasonal vegetables, it was perfect for adapting. Two excellent alcohol free drinks also for me and my husband did the wine flight which was very enjoyable. Superb service throughout and loved the thoughtful touch of a breakfast goody bag to go. Highly recommend

Tasting menus are meant to challenge and this one certainly did. It was a real exploration of tastes and combinations which we enjoyed. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable with just the right amount of humour.

The only thing that didn’t really gel was the decor and the ambiance; high-end food and wine of this quality deserve a modern and sophisticated setting; this was a bit too 1970s student flat for me. But definitely recommend it for everything else.

I agree with some of the earlier reviews that suggest this was a little disappointing.

Although the food was good, there were no ‘stand out’ dishes. The courses seemed relatively simple and the creativity of L’Enclume did not seem to be on show here.

I also felt the wine flight wasn’t great value. The wines were generally quite young and they lacked the finesse you’d expect at this price tag.

The staff were lovely however unfortunately I’m not sure we’d go back in a hurry.

We visited Roganic for dinner on Thursday following much excitement to be able to book a table there fairly easily. Sadly, the excitement was not justified.

Starting with the décor, it feels like the place is an unfinished flat, cold and industrial. I cannot say it felt relaxed or all too welcoming. Though my surroundings aren't always all that important in my eyes, this made an impression. It may have also been noticeable as the restaurant was about half-empty even at 9pm which I found odd considering its fame.

The staff are attentive and friendly though, so I cannot fault that. They had a really lovely approach and look after their guests very well. The presentation was very well executed and detailed each course as it came to the table. I did like the start when a sealed envelope containing the menu was presented - one can choose to be surprised or peek inside.

Unfortunately, the biggest disappointment for us was the food itself. Among all nine courses, there isn't one I would be in a hurry to have again. Often the key element of each course could not truly be tasted and the combinations were often nonsensical. The starter had an unfortunate plastic aftertaste. However, following it was the tongue with pea mousse - the taste of the meat was nowhere to be found, overpowered by the (lovely but dominating) pea mousse. A lovely tomato consommé with trout was oddly accompanied by a honeyed oat bread and cultured butter (the bread was good indeed though it lacked a little salt).

I am not sure if it was just this one particular menu that may be off, but for us, it was a rather disappointing experience.

If you have ever been to the Lake District and like food or fine dining, Simon Rogan is likely to be known to you but I had not eaten at one of his restaurants before. I wish I had not waited so long! This food truly is amazing and the service and everything that goes with it in a league of its own. I do not usually like the Michelin star type venues where the chef and the food is more important that the guest and you are made to feel grateful you got a table. This is not one of those venues. The staff were fantastic, casual whilst being efficient, descriptive and helpful whilst not being too in your face or over the top. I used it for a business lunch and we were able to have a proper chat without felling as though we were being disturbed but we were still both able to enjoy the food and the service.

I will be eating here again very soon as this is a new favourite!
