Lovely outside terrace with views of the canal and barges, food was good too, perfectly cooked steaks followed by a fantastic Bakewell tart. Good service from all the staff. Now we’ve found Rotunda we will definitely be visiting again next time we’re in London, so convenient for Kings Cross.

We had a lovely lunch and appreciated that we were never hurried along as can so often happen in London restaurants. It wasn't our first visit and it won't be our last.

As a small company of 6 celebrating its 10 year anniversary - the Rotunda was just perfect in every way. The food was excellent as was the service.The canal side location was very relaxing and the outside terrace seating area, which we adjourned to after our meal, was very comfortable and well laid out. Highly recommended.

Lovely meal, great relaxed atmosphere and excellent service - it got a bit chilly outside as the evening went on but it was great that we had some lovely cosy throws to keep us warm - and thank you for the free prosecco to celebrate our friends 60th birthday.

Staff were lovely, but barely spoke English, so communication was difficult and they did not know what various items on the menu were, which I think is a basic requirement of a waiter!

I was disappointed by the dining experience. Our choice of starter from (only 3) on the set menu was unavailable; the main course didn't come with any sides (which for £25 was ridiculous) and my mother's aubergine and tomato bake was burnt on top and very small.When the main courses did come they brought my mum the wrong dish; needless to say it didn't take long for the aubergine bake to appear (which clearly wasn't being cooked to order. £100 for two people should guarantee a very special evening meal; this was nothing of the sort. Although the staff were friendly, this was a very disappointing experience. I shall warn people off this restaurant when attending concerts at Kings Place and advise that they eat elsewhere.

We were not charged for anything which gives an indication of how much went wrong! Didn't have the wine or desserts we selected. No steaks or beef dishes - this was a Saturday night and spoiled our weekend break!

Being a regular visitor I find the food and service to be more than adequate. On this occasion the meat (lamb) and fish (cod) were excellent. However, the chef needs to know how to cook vegetables: these were almost raw (not al dente) and not very tasty. But as good as it gets if you need to get to a concert in Kings Place.

We were a party of 17 in the private room off the side of the main dining area. The waitress was very friendly and nice but perhaps inexperienced (?) and shouldn't have been left to deal with a large party on her own. There were a few issues during our meal - - We ordered 2 bottles of wine which we had to ask for twice before we actually got them. - our order for our starters was taken, we then ate our starts before our order for the main course was taken - the mains came out very slowly, there was a big delay between the plaice and the other options coming to the table - people who had ordered steak were given the wrong sauces - most of the steaks were ok when they finally arrived but the last ones to be brought out were a bit chewy. - people were given the wrong sides, one person ordered mixed green vegetables and got a tomato salad, someone else ordered a portion of chips and got a portion of sweet potato fries, which by the time they were brought to the table the person had actually finished eating their main. - I asked for matches or a lighter to light the candles on the cake, again this took a very long time, when I asked again they said they were looking but none of the staff smoked so they didn't have one to hand...yet all the tables had candles on them which had been lit (?) - it took a long time to get the bill, which we needed because people were having to leave to catch their trains (we had booked the table for 7pm so that there should have been plenty of time for people to eat dinner, have coffee etc and not rush for their trains. - all in all the service was very slow which meant that some of the group who had to catch the last train home had to run to the station - the restaurant wasn't that busy and we were given a reduced menu with only 3 options for each course so I'm not sure why everything was so slow The waiter and waitress apologised several times during the night for the mistakes and I don't think it was their fault but the overall experience would mean that I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone else or book a table here again in the future.

Attentive service, we were particularly impressed by the complimentary bubbles for our wedding anniversary - a nice touch. I think there was a shift change whilst we were there as our original waitress seemed to vanish, unfortunately this meant our water and wine were not kept replenished. We had the sharing joint - utterly delicious, and huge. Only comment for improvement is to provide a jug of gravy/jus as it was quite dry. Minor comments on what was a great experience. We will be back!
