About The Gate Restaurant Islington
Adrian and Michael Daniel have been running London’s most successful vegetarian restaurant since 1989 and opened their third restaurant, The Gate Seymour Place in December 2016.
"The food we serve is the food of our childhood, modulated by French and Italian influences. When we opened the Gate, we had had no formal training, we were just a couple of guys who knew what we liked to eat, but we knew that food was sacred and should be celebrated.
At the restaurant, we try to do just that: celebrate the food. This means, amongst other things, that we source our ingredients with care; we intensify flavour by careful cooking and by combining ingredients in unexpected ways. We try to make our dishes as visually pleasing as possible; and we try and do this in a fun and relaxed way.
We started with passion and creativity and we maintain that passion and creativity today."
Loved the vegan cappuccino cheesecake
The atmosphere and the service was great. The sweet potato fries were under-cooked and without seasoning (one out of 5 big fries had spices on it). In general glad with experience, however wouldn't go there again - in my opinion food was lacking flavours.
Toilets need improving, otherwise very good (bordering on excellent in the truest sense).
Nice atmosphere, good food (even for a non-veggy), decent wine in welcome carafes
Fantastic meal. How do you pack so much flavour into your meals? Truely fabulous!
The food and drinks were brilliant! I don't think the staff expected as many people to arrive as did. Service was attentive when we arrived however, we were sat left with our empty dinner plates for about 20 minutes. We also had to call a member of staff over to ask for more drinks. However, it is hard to find good vegan and vegetarian food. We will be back but will know to expect slow service upon our return.
The food was delicious and the service prompt friendly. I will be returning.
As a none vegetarian I would strongly recommend the gate . Try something different you will be surprised but I guarantee not disappointed. Wonderful food amazing flavours we'll definitely be back. Thanks for a lovely evening. Nb our vegetarian friend was equally delighted.
