Service was off the scale good. The hosts were friendly and proactive, accommodating our party of indeterminate size due to drop outs without fuss. Food very tasty, music excellent.

Good restaurant and nice atmosphere but the online menu doesn't match their in-restaurant menu!

We had a fantastic time, from lovely and funny staff to the music and food! Only thing was that the music (before the live bands started) was too loud so it was difficult to speak to each other. Would definitely come back another time!

I've gone to blues many times before and would usually recommend but I was a bit disappointed this time, they've cut back their menu quite a bit and it was all the things that set it apart from other places, so now they're just offering what you can find in similarly styled restaurants but a tad overpriced and getting someone's attention was a bit of a struggle.

I would come for drinks, however our party were seated at a different table to ourselves for 15 minutes. Our starters were taken early, we were asked in the middle of the main if we wanted a free pudding to make up for the mistakes but we were still eating mains. Our drinks weren't ordered in the first place so we had to order again.
We were offered 50% off the bill which was a good gesture, but the overall experience wasn't great. I would probably still go for drinks/events but not for just food.

I love this place! Atmosphere, service and food is great. However on my last visit it felt like we were being rushed and had to stick to a schedule, so we could be asked to free (felt more like being kicked out to be honest) the table 2 hours after arriving. Made the experience feel a bit stressful and not as relaxed as i would have liked for a Friday night. I understand that the restaurant needs to leave room for other customers but thats the case for every other restaurant and i’ve never felt like been part pf a chain organisation that strongly anywhere else. Would return for a quick meal only, not to enjoy a good time with friends.

Food was good.
Our waiter Hugo was great! Always available, kind and smiley. I told him it was my boyfriends birthday and he brought us our dessert with candles (which was also on the house).
In also, the person who sat us was very nice and let us move to a booth when it got available after I asked.
Thank you to all the team, great vibes, very good customer service.

Will definitely be back. The restaurant is gorgeous, and the music is excellent (as you'd expect). I had the best cheeseburger I've had in years, accompanied by delicious bourbon. All for a very reasonable price.

Initially apprehensive as I’m older, but young at heart! Great decor and ambience. Relaxed, good food, service better than average and coped with our cheeky requests. Stayed there 6 hours so must have been good. They have live music in the evening, initially wanted to go to the Shoreditch venue for brunch/music but overground was down so couldn’t get there.
Very cool vibe in the evening. I’d go back.

Cannot fault the food and the service was amazing ..the only fault I could find was the amount of people they let in so so busy couldn’t move in there think it was too overcrowded for the size of the venue I was with family of 12 for birthday ..but again the service was amazing with the stafffinding us two tables together with no hesitation nothing seemed to be a bother for them and considering the amount of people in there they done so well ..hope they get paid well 👍😄..they deserve it !!!!

The serving staff was helpful and knowledgable. The noise a bit too much and it was hard to hear the person next to me as we were eating. The food was lush. I would recommend.

I go to Blues Kitchen very often. However this time wasn't great.
We ordered 2 cocktails and they brought us only one. When we reminded to the waitor that we ordered 2, he brought us the second one in a bigger drink but with no straw - the Hurricane cocktail wasn't that great.
My friend ordered chicken with salad and the waitor brought him chicken with fries.
At the end, when we asked to pay, the waitor insisted to give him a tip. My friend told him that he can have a tip of £2 but he added £2 more when I paid too.
It was the first time I've been to Blues Kitchen and I was shocked by the poor service.
However, I really love the place and I will continue going there.
