Nice setup and atmosphere, attentative and friendly service. Food was good but didn't stand out from other modern European small plates.

The food, drink and service was absolutely amazing. We were dining to say goodbye to some friends moving from Dalston to Hong Kong (!) and it really was such a perfect send off. Delicious, unusual wine list and some amazing British produce. Will be back.

Our meal at Sapling was a delight from start to end. The food was delicious, well proportioned and interesting. Staff were highly personable. incredibly knowledgeable and eager to help and make recommendations. The space is a delight- chic, contemporary while being warm and inclusive. We can't wait to return.

A really stunning place. The wines are just delicious and so interesting - and the food is on a different level! I had read the review in the Evening Standard and wondered if it would live up to it - but actually it surpassed my exceptions. Will definitely be going back.

Lovely independent new wine bar in Dalston with stylish decor. We really enjoyed the tapas style food from the menu that changes every four weeks and uses seasonal produce. Amazing selection of wines! And the staff is very helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back for more!

I had such a great time at Sapling, the food and drinks were outstanding. I was so happily surprised with the sheer quality of it all, from the dishes, charcuterie and cheeses to the wine and fizz. The service was excellent and I could tell that the whole staff from kitchen to floor was in tune with what they’re offering. There was a great atmosphere and I wouldn’t take anything from them... everything was pretty much perfect. Nice one, Sapling is a very nice addition to this street.

My wife and I had a great time. Really nice ambiance. Felt pleasantly relaxed despite being quite hip/fancy. Fantastic food; the beef tartare and smoked salmon were incredible and we loved that a lot of it was sourced locally, and from great causes. Lots of elements had a heart-warming story! The service was excellent. Had a lot of laughs with the chap serving us, who made us feel very welcome. 2 very small detractors; 1) The welcome was a bit slow/ we weren’t acknowledged for a while. I think because you’re either in the restaurant, or behind the curtain, it makes the whole entrance a bit awkward, particularly when staff are busy doing other things. 2) the food was a touch slow to come out but it was the first night and we were too busy enjoying ourselves to worry. Plus, it was made good with a dessert; which wasn’t expected. However, an all-round great experience. We already plan to go back. Definitely recommend Sapling!

Superbly interesting wine list backed by great knowledge. Rare wines available by the glass. Food is precise with some great local touches, such as the sublime secret -smokehouse salmon. The interior is unusually well designed and catches the eye of passers by. All this is available at more than reasonable prices. Hackney is blessed.
