Was great trying out the new Gate in SJW. Was really pleased with the menu options across all parts of the meal (starters, mains and desserts). The food was exceptional and far beyond any expectations. Naturally being new and niche the atmosphere was not bustling but was fine for a decent catch up dinner. Service was also very good. Would highly recommend.

The best vegetarian fine dining in London - and excellent service! This new Gate venue has a super atmosphere - very light and airy. The food at Gate is now even better - and the staff couldn't do enough for us. I highly recommend this venue for his food, atmosphere and service.

I am happy to have this Vegan restaurant near I live. But, the menu is quite limited and always the same. Could be nice if they change the menu monthly or something.

As a meat eater I was concerned I may not enjoy the food but my fears were unfounded. The quality of food, service and portion size were all excellent.

First waiter we spoke with was courteous and helpful regarding the introductory offer at St John's Wood branch booked online, but once we were at the table and had menus it was 30 mins before we were asked what we'd like (drinks order should be taken quickly!). Anyway then the wine came at the same time as the cocktail apéritifs and the first course (not ideal timing). Second waiter's basic English not easy to understand and needed more training rather than just 'curry', 'tortillas' to find out who had ordered what. The food was excellent - good ingrédients well cooked and presented ! We have been to all of The Gate restaurants and it would be good to see a few additions to the menu - seems that vegan dishes are frequently replacing vegetarian dishes in many establishments. Décor relaxed if a little bland. Lovely group of ladies next to us ; shouty group further away behind us were intrusive.

Bit disappointed with the lack of flavour this time, having previously been very impressed with the food at another branch.

This was our second visit to The Gate in St. John's Wood. We had to wait 40 minutes for our main course and were told that our order 'had been lost'. We were offered a discount but we observed a panicky attitude amongst the staff and feel that there were too few staff on duty. Other tables also appeared to have to wait a long time. The food, when it arrived, was good and tasty.
