We weren’t able to go to Nest this time due to the coronavirus but we have been many times before and it’s absolutely the best restaurant in London. I’m sure it would have been very special as it always is. Wishing the team the best of luck through this difficult time.
I reserved my table at Nest online on the morning of the 18th March to eat there in the evening with my girlfriend. Though they weren’t open at time of reservation, they automatically accepted my booking. We arrived at the restaurant in the evening to find it was completely shut! I realise these are uncertain times but a courtesy phone call or even a reservation rejection would have been the right thing to do. I will be expecting an appropriate form to f compensation for this complete lack of an experience.
We were astonished by the genuine warmth and charisma of the tall waiter with the beard. So rare these days! a transformative experience for our evening
Second time I have been to the Nest and can't fault it
Perfect every time
Could not fault anything. Exquisite food, relaxing atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff. Looking forward to the next visit
Best meal I’ve ever had in London. Same standards at La Manoir in Oxfordshire but a fraction of the price. P
I had such an amazing experience here. Staff were genuine, I found it was un pretentious and the team clearly cared a lot about the provenance of their ingredients. Each dish was absolutely delicious and they make the most incredible sourdough. Very impressive considering how tiny the kitchen is. The atmosphere is intimate and relaxed. Will definitely be back
The best food in London. Lovely atmosphere. Thanks for great evening.
Absolutely fantastic meal and very reasonable. Would definitely come again and highly recommend.
We had a fabulous time, the food was outstanding as was the service. We couldn't fault anything. The guys explained the dishes well and it was obvious that they were all passionate about not only the food but the wine pairings and their origins. We will definitely be back - we say it is up there with the best! Great little find and lovely atmosphere, cosy and intimate.
It was my second time at Nest and I hope it won’t be my last! The food was delicious, great value for money, wonderful service. Crockery great. Just like eating in a torest - and in a really good way!!
If anything it was a big disappointment for me. I had been looking to visit the restaurant for a long time. For the present 4 weeks they are cooking kid goat so I prepared myself to have loads of goat cooked in many different ways. Dishes are 1 or at most 2 bites size. Some of them were tasty but most of them were not memorable at all. We had several dishes were goat was not present (I really don't understand why). Service was correct but extremely slow: 2 hours and 45 minutes. Initially dishes were coming out at a good pace but someway halfway it all got very slow. In my opinion the best dish was the ricotta ice cream and that says a lot of a menu that is supposed to be based on kid goat.... I would suggest to focus more on taste then presentation
My partner and I went for the lunch tasting menu. The food was incredible and each course was brought to the table and described in detail the flavours, preparation techniques, and the story behind the products used. As we had the drinks pairing as well, the wine was presented as well with wonderful descriptions about the regions, the wineries, and the flavours to note. It was definitely a full dining experience and would very much recommend it to anything wanting a fine dining experience. It was quite pricey, so probably more for a special occasion, but I would say its worth the money!
Fabulous food, amazing service, excellent wine.
Luke, you and your team were amazing. Thanks for a delicious and wonderful evening. Last tasting menu my wife and I had was Clove Club and your's was just as good (+ without the guilt of wondering how we could justify spending so much on a meal!!!)
Absolutely fantastic food, service and ambience.
Simple yet sophisticated!
Food was delicious! The thought of a set menu and inability to choose (or even view) your meal may be a bit unsettling but the choices were well balanced. Salmon tartare with seaweed was my favourite! Rustic décor really suits this rather intimate establishment. The stuff was really friendly. They were happy to answer any queries we had and threw in a joke every now and then which made the experience really enjoyable. We would definitely come again.
Can’t believe it’s taken us so long to discover this place. We will be back. Every plate was superb!
Great service, excellent prepared dishes,
We love you guys! Every time we come it’s a great food experience and a treat. Your creativity, service and thoughtful and sustainable approach is so refreshing. Thank you!
Inventive and delicious food. The restaurant is small with great ambience and feels like terrific value for money considering the number of courses and high quality. Go!
Absolutely incredible! The food was amazing, the staff were warm & knowledgable, the wine was fantastic. I cannot recommend Nest enough.
Amazing food! And very friendly and attentive service.
