Amazing food and service!
We had dinner at St. John’s Wood Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the evening. The food was excellent in quality, presentation and inventiveness. The service was very good and we felt Steve,the manager, took interest to ensure we had a good experience. It’s a lovely restaurant - light, open, airy and welcoming. We look forward to dining there more frequently.
Service was extremely slow, no one came to check on us, it took a long time for one of our diner’s dishes to be served (after the other three had been served) even though we saw the dish clearly in view by the serving station. Finally, one of our diners had to go and get the dish herself from the serving station. It also took forever to be asked for dessert/coffee and to be given the bill.
I love The Gate. Was so good I forgot to check that the promised 25% discount was applied :)
Attentive staff and good food choice for vegans
Really disappointing experience. We have visited before and really enjoyed our visit but retuning six weeks later we had appalling service and cold meals that didn’t all arrive at the same time. The evening was made even more uncomfortable due to the people on the next table who were drunk and very loud. I hope that this was a one off as the food and venue are great.
Very enjoyable experience, good food and service.
I had an extremely awful experience with the service and management. I had a booking for 7pm to 9pm and would therefore expected to leave at 9pm. I came for a special occasion being my husband's birthday and mine and we came with my 8 year old daughter. We arrived on time, ordered our food promptly. My daughter's food came in good time but we did not get our starters until about 8.15pm so we were wait approx nearly an hour for our starters. I mentioned this to the manager and said we would not be asked to leave but we then had to wait another hour for our mains which arrived cold so had to send this back to be remade/reheated. We complained to the manager and his response was that he had 200 people that evening but this is not a customers problem. Either the restaurant should not take on so many bookings if it is unable to cope with it or have additional staff - clearly this is not something you mention to a customer. Extremely disappointed. We ordered dessert and again we were made to wait and therefore left the dessert as by this time my daughter was tired and needed to get home. In addition, I had to ask 2 different waiters for a 2nd drink and this took over half hour to finally get another drink.
Waited over two hours for the main. Place was really warm. Staff largely ignored us.
I found the service was rather slow but the food when arrived was hot and fresh.
Delicious food and staff make it so enjoyable. Evren the kids love going. Thank you
The food was good, especially the starters. Our server was eager but seemed inexperienced. Also, the meal I wanted to order was sold out and she didn’t mention this until we were ordering. I read other reviews where this had happened. I’d recommend having it be a regular practice to inform guests of dishes what are not available immediately upon being seated.
Overall a good experience. Good food, nice setting. Freshly squeezed orange juice, good selection of food. However we had to wait over 30 mins once we finished our starter to wait for the main course. Rather annoying.
Excellent veggie meal, would recommend and visit again.
Excellent service. Pleasant surroundings. Food was excellent. Will go again
We had a fantastic meal, very tasty and beautifully presented
Staff very friendly but when questioned about the dishes ingredients (because of allergies) staff were not sure.
Booked a surprise lunch for my wifes birthday in November at st johns wood. Great experience from the start, the person i was emailing was lovely & helpful, and in the restaurant the the staff were kind & pleasant. Everything was so much & more than i expected. The food was excellent and could not fault it, perfect amount as well. we both had starters plus main & i requested a desert with happy birthday written on the plate with a candle, which made it that extra bit special for my wifes birthday. We were recommended by a friend and we cant recommend you enough now so thank you. looking forward to our next visit :)
Had run out of two of the main courses. Long wait for the food to be served.
Awesome food. Bit pricey for small amounts of food. Not enough waiters.
Everything was on point, food, drink, service, facilities. Highly recommend the courgette flower and the Tagine. Willdefinitely be back.

The food was delicious, staff are friendly. Definitely will visit again.
