The NoMad London is set inside a soaring three-storey atrium evocative of a lush Edwardian greenhouse. Built around an open wood-burning grill, the Executive Chef Ashley Abodeely and the NoMad culinary team have created a world for dining that is grand yet intimate; classical yet full of playful spirit, and known for what the Michelin Guide has called, "an ability to turn the ordinary into the sublime.” The menu is eclectic with a focus on local and regional bounty from farm, field and coast, and offers both easy meals to comfort the spirit and moments of decadence and whimsy for nights to remember. During the weekend we offer a set menu of £45 per person for Brunch. An extensive wine list curated by Bella Babbit and drinks programme created by Bar Director Liana Oster and the celebrated NoMad Bar team complement the menu and are a destination unto themselves.

    Expensive but amazing. The lunch menu is a set two course menu, not a la carte. Some of the best food ever

    Always wanted to eat here. Worse eggs Benedict ever served in a restaurant. Eggs cold, teaspoon of sauce and muffin unable to cut through even with the steak knife provided. Waiter said muffin American style so steak knife provided. First time for me to be served with a muffin that just will not cut through even with a steak knife. My wife waited at least 5mins after ordering another coffee. Service worse ever experienced in a hotel in London and internationally. Staff seemed to always to be absent and never once asked How is the meal? Can I get you anything? Not on my must visit list anymore.

    It was an emotional roller coaster. I immediately ordered what I wanted, but they didn't realize they hadn't entered it into the system until 25 minutes later. When I mentioned that I wanted the "Pre-theater" menu and that I had an hour to finish it, they took it too literally and all three dishes arrived at the same time. These factors contributed to an unsettling experience, but when I paid the bill, I was charged a different (higher) price than what was on the menu. After I mentioned it, it was corrected. So, in one hour of dining, they made three mistakes, which is far below their reputation. The sommelier's recommendation and presentation were adequate, but he seemed uninterested in discussing it with a fellow wine connoisseur.

    Reeally gutted as i had been looking forward to eating here for some time. The service was terrible. We had to keep asking if we could order our food [it was an 8.45am mid-week breakfast meeting]. Tea and coffee took ages to come out. Salt and pepper were not offered or provided - we had to ask twice, and it finally came when we'd almost finished eating. It was very quiet with only a few other tables in use, so the service staff were definitely not in any way stretched. The muffins for the Eggs Benedict seemed a bit stale. It was a real shame as the decor is beautiful, but the food and service did not match up to the hype and the prettiness of the restaurant.

    I’ve been to the Nomad 5 times and love it so I decided to go again yesterday to meet a family member to celebrate my engagement last week, we left a note on the booking and we were given two glasses of complementary champagne which was a lovely surprise! We had incredible food, the service was amazing, the atmosphere incredible and when we were finished with our food we were taken to the library area to have some more drinks and dessert which was lovely! Can’t thank the team enough - such attentive service!

    Had a girls brunch. Both location and environment are top notch, the food however compared to everything else was not that impressive but still good. They also have a very good barista.

    I love the Nomad & go for drinks & food often. We had divine cocktails & lovely food in a beautiful environment. However last night we had a horrid experience with the female sommelier who argued with us regarding sending a bottle of wine back. She aggressively insisted we tell her what the problem was with the wine & was really unpleasant, marring the experience I had carefully planned for my dearest friend’s birthday. We were then asked to vacate the table at the end of the meal which has never happened to me before, despite how busy the restaurant had become. The people at the next table, with whom we’d been chatting, noticed it & offered to vacate their table, as they’d arrived earlier this us. Of course we declined, paid & left. I’d think again before dropping several hundred pounds on dinner & drinks here in future. I feel really embarrassed & upset about it today. 😒

    Staff went above and beyond, had a theatre show to attend at 7 and was very accommodating. Also it was my partners birthday and they gave her a adorable hand written card and a dessert on the house. The lady who was serving our wine was very knowledgable and gave us a great option that we will be buying again (can’t remember her name but had a nose ring). Overall great experience start to finish even though we was in a rush.

    We waited 45-60 minutes for our table that was reserved for 8:30, but they did give us complimentary drinks for waiting. The fish on the main menu was not good at all, tasted like rubber. Did not taste fresh and the sauce was an odd combination. The burrata starter was very good. The restaurant is quite noisy, which is fine but we could not understand or hear the person that set the food on the table. They tried to give a detailed description of each course but we could not hear them.

    The atmosphere and the actual place itself is fantastic and very stunning. Service was fast and the staff are very accommodating and helpful BUT; the food personally was not it. Some items on the menu were a little dry/bland - whilst others had tastes that felt like they were thrown together. It wasn’t an overly impressive menu in terms of offering - and especially considering the cost - more should be spent on the menu instead of the fit out

    After several delays because of my date job. The restaurant managed to change the dinner time 3 times. When we arrived, they kept us the special table requested. Dinner was excellent, I loved the oysters and the lobster tagliatelle. Service was impeccable, my date was happy too. We will come back.

    We went to Nomad restaurant to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. The place looks amazing and unique. Is very different from most of London restaurants. Service was excellent with very helpful staff. Food outstanding and very tasty. I highly recommend lamp and sea bream crudo. Perfect place for a romantic dinner and excellent drinks.

    Stunning setting. Service was very slow, forgetful, and unhelpful. Had to rush of after 2.5 hours by rushing our mains down and paying before we'd finished them. No remorse or offer of a dish removed from the bill to compensate us. Food was OK but some dishes weren't seasoned. Far too expensive for what it is. Overall really disappointed and won't be going back or recommending to anyone.
