    Initially had to send our first course back due to it being undercooked. But when the food did arrive or was excellent. Service was a bit hit or miss and the restaurant didn't have much atmosphere. Cocktails were excellent. But overall if dining on an offer, it was worth it.

    I have been to Smollenskys before on several occasions so knew more or less what to expect. I was disappointed however on arrival to be greeted by a large vase of very dead lilies in a vase on the desk and a smell of toilets. The staff were friendly and helpful as ever and the food ok. I had the kale salad with the addition of a chicken breast. The salad was very much just kale with exactly 3 small pieces of broccoli. The chicken breast was tough and rather dry. My companions all had fish & chips & enjoyed it. I won't be rushing back.

    Food awful. No one else in the restaurant - no atmosphere. Good service though.

    Really good cocktails

    We have used Smollensky's before for Pre-Theatre dinner. The atmosphere is very intimate, even with large groups nearby. The service was very good. Fast efficient and the staff very courteous.

    Just a really poor dining experience, I wouldn't recommend. Food was fast but incredibly average. The staff had numerous fights while we were there and definitely don't put the customer first.

    Food was ok but the service was very poor. Maybe the staff were out sick.

  • (((** 23 February 2017 by Ann Guyer from London

    Lovely staff with pleasant enough atmostphere - definitely half office workers and half pre-theatre goers. Food took a while to come and was rather on the dry side, generous enough portion size and as I said earlier helpful friendly staff.
