Great experience, met with a business colleague /friend for lunch, only people dining on the top floor so very personal service . Filippo was very knowledgeable about the wines and the service staff were fantastic.
Will return.

We had a special family occasion we wanted to celebrate and the meal and pairings were perfect. The food was beautifully presented and imaginative. We had the wine/cocktail pairing which was enjoyable and unusual.

Impressed by the level of service (albeit the sommelier was a little bit pushy), cuisines are good standard and definitely aiming towards avant garde and there is still room for positive improvement (as well as the music playlist). Desserts are absolutely generous, amazed by fizzy grapes.

Good value menu but desserts too sweet. Most of them had fruits inside - I think is too much sweetness. Expected something like classic italian desserts but revised by too chef.

Unfortunately due to a service accident at the beginning (a staff dropped a cocktail glass, shuttered into pieces, got soaked wet, service stopped and so on...), our experience was ruined. Wine was served with a miserably little quantity clearly less than 125cl stated in the menu, so felt expensive. Staff not well trained to use Coravin either, making our table messy. No apologies at check out. Shame, as the food was very refined, well executed and beautifully plated...

I have been to many Michelin star restaurants and this is better than most. I can't wait to watch them receive at least one star this autumn. But if you ask me they deserve at least two. Happily catered a gluten free menu for my guest and were super helpful with everything else. Not to be missed!!!

We had the 10-course tasting menu at Xier - it was delicious and innovative. Staff were super attentive and friendly. I think they could improve their decor and evening lighting though as that didn't seem to match the quality of the food presented.

New Year’s Eve and where to go? Well we knew nothing about Xier so thought why not give it a try. We chose the early dining and were impressed by the food and service. We also chose the ‘fine wine ‘ pairing. Whilst the wines were of top quality (and scoring 3/5 according to the sommelier) we did think the price for the wines was a bit ‘toppy ‘ Never mind, we had a great night and thanks to the sommelier for joining in the fun.

Excellent food and service with amazing flavours and presentation of the dishes. Wine pairing was good, but it included 3 cocktails which me and my partner thought were too much, 1 cocktail would have sufficed and thought wine would be more appropriate for such a venue

My 70th birthday celebration was most memorable. The restaurant, staff, food and drink was first class. I will also compliment Filipo, the sommelier, for his edgy wine and drink choices as well as his sense of humour which helped the evening flow smoothly. All in all a top class evening which will be remembered for some time.

Thank you all at Xeir.

One of the best wine pairings I've had, the sommelier certainly knows his food and wine. We had the tasting menu, overall very good, the only disappointment was the goyza, the cream cheese filling didn't really work.

By far the best restaurant I’ve ever been to. The food is absolutely flawless with new exciting flavours and combinations that hasn’t been done before. The service was very attentive but not too in your face. The sommelier is great and very charming. The room is gorgeous and atmosphere amazing.

The tasting menu was superb. Every course was beautifully presented and seemed to be inspired by both the seasonal ingredients and world cuisines. It was adventurous without being excessive. I especially liked the fish dishes. The pigeon was perfectly cooked and each dish was accompanied by sauces or reductions that complemented the main flavours. Overall it was a gastronomic experience to be treasured and very good value for the price. I also enjoyed the desserts at the end. The service was attentive and courteous throughout.

Words can’t describe how amazing this dinner was - probably the best we have had in our lives. Each course was an explosion of amazing flavor, there was so much attention to detail and the team made us feel like we were the only guests despite the restaurant being fully booked.
Can’t wait to go back and see what other amazing creations chef Carlo Scotto has up his sleeve - certainly set the bar extremely high. Thank you again for a truly special dining experience!

Xier seems to have lost out on the 2020 Michelin star list, which is a complete mystery to me. Even though it should never be the sole signifier, or even the most important one, the food ranks among the best of what London has to offer; I'd rank it above Clove Club for example. While I enjoy fine dining I'm not professionally qualified enough to judge the execution of cooking techniques, but the dishes simply came together extremely harmoniously, which can't always be said for their peers. Every ingredient served a purpose, which wasn't just to show off on Instagram (although no doubt most of them end up there...).
I can only hope the team gets past the initial disappointment of being left out by the Guide; carrying on with what they've been doing is a noble enough cause that will hopefully find them the deserved loyal following.

A new star on the London dining landscape. Clearly has aspirations of some serious awards (think Michelin) and based on our meal on Saturday evening, it will be awarded them. £90 per person for the 10 course tasting menu is currently a relative bargain. Go now before they win those awards and the prices increase to match their competition (Ledbury et.al).

Wonderful food, fabulous service at a good pace. We came here for our wedding anniversary meal and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the wine and cocktails flight and these were wonderfully matched. Perhaps a little expensive for what we had (specifically the wine flight) but otherwise a really fabulous meal and experience. Would definitely recommend. The vegetarian tasting menu was stunning

Xier is the real deal, stunning food and great service. The food is a solid two Michelin standard and at least one star is inevitable later this year. Get in now whilst you still can at this price. Had the wine and cocktails match which was delicious and perfect for the food, cocktails added lots of fun and are a unique experience. Best meal I’ve had in London.
