Restaurant description

An edgy urban restaurant from one of the world’s most famous chefs, Gordon Ramsay Restaurant's Union Street Café in Southwark, London, showcases refreshingly simple Italian cuisine. In this converted warehouse-style space, the main attraction is incredible Italian cuisine served from a theatre-style open kitchen.

Sourcing from artisan Italian producers as well as those closer to home, head chef Davide Degiovanni presents a selection of time-honoured recipes, served with a modern twist. Wholesome recipes from the daily-changing Union Street Café menu might include chicken breast with spinach and pecorino mousse, or smoked aubergine and burrata risotto. Only the freshest ingredients are used.

At the restaurant’s very own Olive Grove, bar bartenders muddle creative and classic cocktail mixes that take inspiration from the flavours of the Mediterranean and the humble olive.

Styled to resemble a cool, New York-style loft space, Union Street in London is a 3-minute walk from Southwark Tube Station and close to the Southbank, Shakespeare’s Globe, Borough Market, and Tate Modern.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    The staff were lovely. The food really was quite underwhelming. Sadly won’t return, despite lovely staff. Was all quite tasteless sadly, despite the big name.

    Thoroughly enjoyable experience, excellent food and friendly staff - all a real pleasure! Sure in ‘normal’ times the ambience would be 5* too!

    This is somewhere we meet with family and friends every time we visit London. We all love the food and the atmosphere - this is one of our favourite happy places.

    Excellent food & service. Roberto the GM gave us a tour of the kitchen and Andre the waiter was great. Would highly recommend.

    Very disappointing. Our booking was for a 4-course meal with pre-dinner signature cocktail, Italian dolcetti and a kitchen tour, all for £30 per person. The receptionist upon on our arrival (bang on 7pm as it happens) was very vague and did not appear to know too much about our booking. That said we were ushered to the bar where we clarified the position with the bartender and duly received our cocktails. Some 20 mins+ passed before I decided to find out when we might be seated as I thought we might be left at the bar indefinitely. A few minutes later we did get shown to our table __ next to a big dividing wall between us and the main part of the restaurant (building design I guess). The £30 “special” menu duly arrived but choices were limited to 3 items for each course (incl 1 veggie). Food itself was average, and we never did get the 4th course nor a tour of the kitchen. I suppose I could have asked but quite frankly I do not expect to go out of my way to prompt the restaurant staff, nor be treated as some kind of pariah just because we were utilising a "bookatable" offer. We’ve recently dined at the Ritz, the Paternoster Chop House, and the Oxo Tower. I’m sorry Gordon but this was by far the worst. TV.
