The Blues Kitchen - Shoreditch
Amazing as always, great service and atmosphere. Live music spot on. The veggie platter for sharing was great! Would recommend booking in advance as it fills up very quickly.
I adore this restaurant so much, however I would suggest not going to it in its early lunch time, as it felt like their “B-team” was working, as the food wasn’t as great as it normally is.
Dinner however is amazing, and so are their cocktails.
Great live music, tasty food (especially the ribs), prompt and helpful service with lots of ambience. Definitively worth a visit. Reservation during weekends is recommended. Due to license constraints kids are only allowed until 8pm.
Shame it is so expensive, venue excellent, service very good food doesn’t rate the price.
Terrible restaurant. The service was poor, and the staff are very unhygienic. They had climbed onto where we were eating to close the blind, and told us to move. All ustensils and cups were filthy and I had to clean it myself before eating. The value for food is bad and everything literally tastes the same - potion sizes are very small. I had ordered and the waiter forgot some of the order so some people had no food on the table for ages. Do not go if you want to enjoy your night. Worst service ever
Went on a Saturday night was not expecting it to be so packed! We usually go to Brixton which is much calmer. Seating was nice and we were seated on time. Drinks were expensive £17 for a vodka and a whiskey. Food was ok but burger was dry. Mac N cheese and burnt ends n brisket was the best part. Live music good. Asked for mayonnaise and nobody came with any, it’s so loud it’s hard to get waiter attention. Would prob prefer this midweek.
Fab music, great cocktails, lovely food, staff were very friendly, definitely make a return visit.😁
Very friendly staff.. good food a little pricey very loud as it is a big venue but enjoyable
I've visited the Shoreditch branch of The Blues Kitchen on several occasions and I'm never disappointed. Quick service, excellent food and a great place to catch up with friends, you really can't go wrong. Although it can get a little loud at times, it's all part of the vibrant ambience so very little complaints. I recently visited for brunch with my boyfriend who had never been before and we both loved it. Our server was very attentive and was constantly topping our prosecco glasses up immediately after seeing they were low. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!
Really good service, bottomless prosecco/cocktails were regularly topped up (meaning you have no clue how much you have had - which isn’t a bad thing..!) food choice was varied and really tasty.
Vibrant atmosphere, good music, really good table service, only let down by mediocre food.
I had the squid - more like damp squib
Brisket and burnt ends - my 1 slice of brisket looked a bit lost on the plate. Not sure if they were running out as I'm sure I've had served up more than 1 slice on previous visits.
Overall - had a good time and would return - at least 2 slices please in future!!
It was alright
Honestly a sensational place. Such good funk music, great vibe, decor on point, service wonderful, never had a bad time here. Food isn’t AMAZING but it’s bloody good
Freaking amazing, we loved it. The burgers where the best!
Went with friends to have lunch good setting, very good service, food was good avocado on toast and crab cakes very good, and we had bottomless brunch, people very friendly and good background music would definitely go again
Fab service for my sisters 30th birthday staff went above and beyond and bought out a dessert which was delicious Oreo doughnuts with candles the food was really nice. Had a fab night with a great live band and a good atmosphere.
Such a fab evening, the staff were wonderful, the music was great and the food was amazing. No faults at all.
A delicious dinner and excellent evening out! The Blues has become a favourite of ours for two years now.
Great lively venue for a friend get-together! Live music and great atmosphere. Food delicious.
Had a very bad experience on my first visit to this branch of Blues Kitchen.(However fortunately the evening was adjusted massively by the intervention of the Manager ( Fazid) ; who made us both feel a bit better by the time we left but that experience will remain with us forever.
Amazing live music. I love this place. Pork ribs delicious. We came for dinner and stayed late. Its very nice that you can have dinner and drinks/live music/ dancing all at one place, with out moving around. Amazing Friday night.
Terrible quality food laced with outrageous quantities of sugar.
Have visited before and is a fantastic place to meet friends for weekend brunch. Staff are always friendly and fast with incredible service. Would highly recommend.
Great service! Joni was great ! Very hospitable! Drinks too expensive!
Loved it! Regular here and food and atmosphere always great! Service was w bit slowe than the norm... staff hadn’t had their tequilas yet haha! But all the same it didn’t matter— great place to come for a night out if your not a “clubber” like me
Had great food & a great night, entertainment was really good! Very lively!
VERY slow service.
our food arrived before our drinks.
£7.31 for service charge was overkill!
Really loved the soul music playing in the background it had such a great atmosphere! Food was really tasty, we had two burgers, cornbread and deep fried Oreo donuts for dessert... would definitely return
Had a terrible service experience before when I booked this venue for a Christmas party for work. It was so bad I received a voucher for £50 which I decided to use for a second visit, not expecting the same experience twice. Things started off well but after our mains were served the service seemed to vanish. It wasn’t busy at all for a Sunday afternoon. Flagged down one of the waiters eventually to get the bill. He then vanished with our voucher and we then spent the next 40 minutes trying to get the bill from various other waiters who disappeared. If we walked out no one would have noticed. We approached the girl on the front door and told her the situation. She called the manager over who then took care of the bill but put service charge on. I then had to ask for the hefty service charge to be taken off. All in all it took an hour to sort out the bill in a very quiet restaurant, with about 8 waiters walking around rather gormlessly. It’s my last visit to this Blues Kitchen. It’s awful.
We booked the blues due to us having been before, this was a very special 21 st surprise for our daughters best friend , we travelled 4hours to come here from Cleethorpes , The atmosphere was great but the service and food was appalling, I don’t no what has changed since last November but it was awful . We ordered 2 big platter sides 2 mains with sides drinks , the meals were bland , cold and very uninviting in appearance. We challenged this only to get no replacement , the corn was cooked cold and tastes powdery we left it our mains the chicken was cold greasy undercooked and had pink flesh, the bean burger was crumbed and I was gluten free which I stressed , allergic to cheese and dairy , I had no offer to replace anything so. I left it? The lobster was so small with next to no meat at all and the meat plater was so spicy they actually couldn’t tolerate it! We told them it was a special 21 st and nothing was offered or no mention or fuss etc safe to say we were made to pay a lot no discount ? The food was so bad most of all was left on our plates for over £150 it was appalling ! We also challenged a service charge that was added still !
Food is always brilliant here you can't go wrong with it
One of the best brunches ever!!!! Sweet place awesome staff tasty food too much mimosas INCREDIBLE VALUE ;) ohh noooo
Burgers are very average.
Great looking place.
Good service and friendly staff.
Our table wasn’t available when we arrived and had to wait ten minutes.
The service and food was excellent but it was spoiled by DJ music being too loud. Was very tough hearing each other and the staff, having to order by pointing is not very civilised.
Also, staff were automatically serving doubles without asking and I was charged for a drink I didn’t want.
My friends burger was medium rare but wasn’t asked how she wanted it; when we told the server she said she automatically picked and did not offer a replacement so it was wasted and my friend did not eat.
Live music was great.
I would go back though.
The Blues Kitchen was so lovely, Food was amazing! So delicious, The platters to share were a great deal,
Me & my colleagues really enjoyed the meal. Staff were very friendly. Will definitely go again & recommend to my friends.
Portions have got a lot smaller since the menu change, but of a shame.
Always been a Fan Of Blues Kitchen, dune there nearly every week!
Good food nice waitresses lovely ambience good price for money! Love this place
Awesome venue, good food, fab music and service was brilliant- thank you
