    It was their experimental taster menu…some dishes good, some poor. Every time been before it’s been amazing so guess that’s the risk with experimental Wednesdays! Service & venue great though

    Sunday lunch. Fine service food and vine.Food not to inspiring and the portions was rather small and you have to pay if you like some “sides” and that’s sudden been necessary with the prices you charges. Coming back again? Think we will choose another alternative.

    Food and service were great. Lovely cocktails and the blood pudding mini burgers were awesome! We booked an outside table (terrace) and the only downside was the lack of ambience (no music, pretty quiet, views aren't amazing). Inside decor and ambience looked great so if you book, eat inside!

    Had their excellent 10 course tasting menu (inventive largely seafood-based menu, packed with oodles of umami flavour - the pistachio choux, crab, watercress veloute were highlights). Further discounted through a deal if you stay with the Stratford hotel downstairs (must register when booking the hotel). Staff were especially attentive and friendly. Great sommelier also suggested some fantastic wine pairings. Not to mention, laid back and stylish interiors (and lots of plants!). Also rather under advertised is their expansive rooftop wildflower gardens with beautiful views of East London was icing on the cake. Definitely recommend as a special night out or with small group of friends.

    Second visit Alelgra. Unfortunately the service was terrible this time. Despite eating early in the evening as the restaurant filled up the delay between courses for the Wednesday tasting menu got progressively worse. Staff did not acknowledge an issue with service. There was clearly not enough staff that night. We were not offered drinks as we finished them. When I did ask to speak to the manager and express my concerns it was not dealt with in a satisfactory way. Poor service ruined what was a nice meal, food was nice and all presented. Dessert was a bit of a let down though. There are plenty of other paces offering equally good food with much better service than this. We will not be going back anytime soon. Shame as this s a local restaurant for us. I did write to the restaurant directly afterwards to share my feedback, but have nothing back from them.

    The food was superb. Whilst it was perfectly understandable that outside dining was not possible because of the wind, why the inside was gloomy and almost funereal, because all the blinds were drawn , was harder to comprehend. We asked if the blind at our table could be raised, our request was declined.

    I booked this a little while ago for our Mum’s 60th birthday after some extensive research and much consideration, and we were not disappointed. I really wanted a fine dining experience without the pretension and that is exactly what we got. We arrived a little early and had an aperitif on the Terrace prior to our restaurant sitting, which I had mentioned in my booking was something we might like to do if they could accompany us, and they were more than happy to do this. The signature cocktails were fantastic and very well balanced. We opted for the Chef’s Selection tasting menu and every course was amazing. The attention to detail and precision of the cooking and plating was as good if not better than any Michelin star restaurant we have visited. The staff were attentive without being intrusive and very knowledgeable about the food being served. Polite and friendly so we felt relaxed and able to enjoy our meal. The sommelier took time to find out our wine preferences and helped us choose the best matches for the dishes on the menu, his choices were reasonably priced with no hint of him trying to push the most expensive bottles. I’m useless with names, so sorry I’m not able to individually praise the staff we interacted with as they really do deserve recognition. My Mum was presented with an additional dessert as a birthday treat which was a lovely touch. The decor inside and out is elegant without being stuffy, chic and contemporary, very well considered. I will definitely be looking to visit again in the future and I’ll be surprised if this restaurant doesn’t soon receive a Michelin star, as it certainly deserves it.

    Having become quite a regular at Allegra and having eaten in some of London’s best restaurants, I have to say that they are absolutely smashing it.. By far this is currently some of the best food being served up in london. The tasting menu last evening was amazing. The sommelier’s recommendations were top notch, superb! My all round opinion on hospitality, service, food and drink, hard to find better in and around London!! Will be back very soon. Ps. Would give 6 stars if possible.!

    Allegra has to be one of the best new restaurants in London, we’re lucky to have it on our doorstep in Stratford. We had the Chef’s tasting menu and my goodness, every single dish was delicious. We were even served a number of courses by head chef Patrick Powell. I wish I could remember our sommelier’s name as he was wonderful. I can’t wait to go back.

    Outstanding tasting menu at Allegra which was helped by the wine choice recommendation. The service was was excellent and staff friendly and professional. The only negative feedback is that it took over 20 minutes for our terrace drink order to be taken and longer if we hadn’t forced attention. Their didn’t appear to be staff shortage. However we could not fault the outstanding service once we were in the restaurant. Amazing food amazing staff!

    We had a lovely lunch celebrating my husband’s birthday. The staff are just lovely and so helpful, and we are the best chicken I’ve ever eaten in my life. It wasn’t too busy on Friday lunchtime, possibly due to the heat so we had our choice of the lovely spots on the roof terrace. Will definitely return

    Very nice and aesthetically pleasing restaurant however the food was not as I expected. The portions were very very small and not really value for money. I attended with my girlfriend who did not like her drink and was given a new one. The peach honey was not sweet but quite strong and not to her liking. As the drink was taken away I assumed it was taken off the bill but we were still charged for it.

    Food and wine were excellent. Only gripe was the misleading menu in terms of the ‘duck sharing platter’. You expect the whole duck (£75) to arrive at your table sliced up for you to enjoy, especially when the chef brings up the duck to your table to show you before carving … but then the two of us only received two slices each on our plates and a couple of duck sausage pieces. Feels a bit dishonest and I think they need to clarify that on the menu wording.

    Lovely lunch and very attentive staff. We were very grateful they could accommodate us after arriving quite late due to horrendous traffic. Food was really good but, for the life of me, I cannot understand why a cooked duck's head was served on the plate with the duck sausage salad. Unnecessary and rather off putting. Cocktails were nice and the outside terrace is beautiful.
