Worst restaurant management I have ever encountered. I rang in the morning to change the booking from 6 people to 9. This was confirmed on the phone, but when we arrived they hadnt sorted a table for 9. When we asked about this they said, they could add another chair...? We had had the menus for half an hour and then were told that they had to check whether they were serving the brunch or lunch menu. This should have been clarified before we had menus. We ordered olives for the table which never arrived and when we asked they said they didnt have any. 6 of the 9 meals arrived, (despite the fact we all ordered the same two meals). We had to prompt the manager that we had 3 meals missing, and he then asked us what we had ordered and they didnt arrive for another 25 minutes. As a table of 9, sat for an hour and half, we were only asked about one round of drinks. One of the drinks was forgotten and when finally made was left sat on the bar so long that my friend went to go pick it up for himself. The staff could not have cared less about the service, and all seemed to be a little spaced out, and the manager in particular is way out of his depth. I would not return if you paid me and would strongly advise anyone else to avoid this place.

A friend and I travelled from outside of London to come here. I booked a week in advance. When we turned up, there was a private event going on and it was heaving with people, we weren’t allowed in. Thus, a wasted journey which ruined our day. Rude waitress who did not even offer us a table and just went back to the event. Would not recommend to anyone!!!

We booked a table but when we arrived was told an event was taking place, so we have to sit outside - the website said nothing of any event on the day which was a bit annoying. The food was very average, my friend's food had hollandaise sauce on it (allegedly) but it resembled something close to melted butter. Another friend had the French toast but honestly it was something closer to fried cake. I had the salmon on brioche but it was actually regular bread, definitely not brioche. It's a pretty place and perfect for an insta but everything else is sub-par.

Disappointing visit. Went for a birthday event, service was poor/non existant. Only time we saw a waiter is when we called one over, no checking if wanted more drinks, if the food was ok etc. Starters came out so late it was served with the main course. The only waiter we had was actually a bartender so credit to him, unfortunately he was lost with the whole evenings processes. Food is overpriced for what was served. Atmosphere is ruined by “influencers” taking pictures with a cocktail and salad

We attended for a friend’s get together brunch. The food was good, price is quite standard for a brunch place and the service was very good. The waiter was very accommodating to substitutions such as whipped cream for ice cream.

Would recommend!

Lovely new restaurant in Heddon Street. We liked the vibes and the ambience. The decor is amazing.
Could do with a quicker service though, as the food and drinks took a while before they came.
But staff nice and polite. Would definitely go again.

A bit meh, expensive and seems you are paying more for the decor than anything else. One person's food came out after everyone else had finished with very little concern from the restaurant.

It’s a cute place for a drink but the food is way overpriced for the quality and quantity you’re getting. Moreover, they should separate the smokers from the non-smokers.

Outstanding service
Food was presented well and delicious.
I love the pink colour and the flowers inside really made this venue a perfect addition to Heddon Street.

Will definitely come back again and again

This seems like the new hot spot in London. Food was delish.
