    Pre booked a table for a birthday meal for 2. Very loud, had to shout across the table. Definitely for big groups of people only. Food service was slow and the waiter kept bringing other people’s orders. We ordered the small plates, not so great both the aubergine parmigiana and croquettes were barely warm by the time they arrived at our table. Plates weren’t cleared for 20 minutes. Wouldn’t go back.

    Portions of tapas style servings were too small, so it didn’t work out not great value. The mains food wasn’t hugely tasty, desserts were disappointing. The service was lovely. The ambience was lovely but the music was a tad too loud, even after we asked it to be lowered a little bit.

    Went to celebrate my birthday on a sunny Saturday evening. The atmosphere was brilliant both outside and inside. We were seated on the 3rd floor and enjoyed every moment of it. Wings, tacos, ribs and steak and sliders were our dishes of choice which were all so tasty. Cocktails and wine went down a treat too.

    Service was friendly, food arrived very/ nearly too quickly after ordering (before the wine had been poured). Overall a pleasant meal, but not sure the standard of food matches the price point.

    Very busy Saturday afternoon, quite loud as we were sitting in the area as you walk in the door with people who were just there for drinks too which meant it was a struggle to hear each other at times. The food was a little disappointing this time, I have eaten here before and the food was delicious but this time not so good. The foccacia bread was delicious, other than that the others were not so good and alot of food went uneaten. Service was extremely slow at times. We were waiting so long for someone to take our order that we went to the bar and purchased drinks while waiting for service. The food did come quite quickly but some of it was cold. Wouldn't be rushing back for food.

    I have often eaten in Drury buildings and have enjoyed the ambience and food.This time though I enjoyed my salad and fries my friends weren't happy with their dinner particularly the chicken sliders.The dessert baklava and turksih delight was sparse and not very appetising.This was a pity as service was very good and the atmosphere lovely and lively.

    Drury BuildingsResponded on 25 March 2024
    We're happy that you enjoyed your experience with us, but we’re sorry to hear it wasn't spot on. Unfortunately, the vibe of the place and the volume of the music are down to the area where you are seated, we will make sure next time to place you in a quieter area and we will look after you with extra care. Our team is constantly striving to improve, so we'd love to know what we could do differently the next time.

    Food was ready 1 min after ordering. Almost like it was just heated up and served. Fries were bland and cold. Wings were hard and not prepared well. Olive ribs were like chewing gum. Picanha steak no words for it

    Food, although expensive is very flavourful and delicious. If you have a big appetite then you need at least 6 dishes but worth splashing out once in a while. There's a great atmosphere and staff are very friendly.

    Food was only warm, we had a lovely waiter at the start, there was a different guy serving the dessert who literally fired the plates on the table & ran, no cutlery provided.i went to the bar man who was extremely helpful & went to get the cutlery for us...I wouldn't be in a rush back.

    I recently dined at Drury Buildings and was thoroughly impressed. The salmon potato cake and mushroom arancini were standout dishes. The ambiance was charming, and our waiter was attentive and friendly. Prices were reasonable, making it accessible to all. Overall, I highly recommend Drury Buildings for an exceptional dining experience.

    The food wasn’t up to their prices, the cocktails were basically water, and at the end I almost pay more for a mistake in the bill, and when I said that my dish wasn’t good they told me “if you are Italian you can’t appreciate Italian food outside your house”. I’m really disappointed I had good expectations since the building is really beautiful, but it seems it’s only appearances.

    Nice buzzy vibe when we arrived at 645.. food was overall average- nothing special But service was abysmal Waitress forgot to take the order of one diner Another waiter forgot to bring a glass of wine that was ordered And a third waiter when we asked for their help, indicated they’d be over to us in a minute , but never came. The stinger is that service was automatically included in the billl. Don’t think I’d be back again- maybe for drinks but not food.

    We had a wonderful time at this restaurant! The food and drinks were delicious, and we had a lovely semi-private room on the side of the bar, which made us feel very special. I would recommend this place to friends and family; it was a wonderful experience.
