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."

The reviews across all media sites stating that The Gate is a great vegan/veggie restaurant are all valid. The food and atmosphere was superb and was reasonable priced. The wine menu had a great selection also, The only thing that I would point out is that I thought the service could have been slightly better than what it was. Its not because of the staff being inept or rude, because they were lovely people. it was just the amount of time taken to order etc. The best example of this was wafting for a desert menu for quite a long time ad then no one coming back to take the order. In the end I asked for the bill and the waiter seem surprised that we were not having a desert. But all of that said, The Gate is a lovely place to eat and drink and we would go back without question.

The food was delicious! However service was quite slow, we got our starters before our drinks arrived and our waiter was quite curt. Our plates were left on our table after we finished our main course until we asked for the bill.

The meal was wonderful (I would highly recommend the Dragon Salad). The service was great, too. I was asked whether the reservation was for a celebration and I mentioned it was for a birthday. Because I was asked I assumed there would be a treat in store for my partner whose birthday it was, but there was nothing, leaving me asking why I was asked in the first place. Slightly disappointing feeling.
