The Blues Kitchen - Shoreditch
Our waiter was fantastic very attentive it was very busy being near Christmas. The atmosphere was great and the bar downstairs was good to have a drink in after our meal.
Great place with great lunch deals, good atmosphere and great service
Very disappointed on this visit. After a great meal, we were pretty much rushed out of the door. The 2hr timeslots are understandable for a place as busy as this. However, when service is slow (waited almost half an hour for drinks) you can't then harass customers to vacate a table!
Not for dinner though. Only for the live music event
Amazing atmosphere, food is nice and the waiters are really amazing! Thank you so much to all of them.
Unfortunately the service was terrible. We booked a table but was pointless as we was seated 35 minutes late & told to wait at bar having drinks which was packed & crowded took forever to be served & then left standing around with our coats. Burger was extremely raw but all other food ordered was lovely. We did complain & was offered a free drink each which softened the disappointment but still won’t be returning in a hurry.
Menus not great, not many options. Soon as you get in they’re trying to rush you out...
Great space a few issues with service but great staff just forget something quite important made amends for this though. Food was very average but you don’t really come here for great food.
Amazing food, great vibes and great live music to top it all off. Only negative is the mediocre cocktails
Great, fast service despite being super busy. Attentive staff and great food.
Great food great atmosphere
Defo visiting again.
Really enjoyed the night
I am disappointed in the change to the Sharing platter ... it’s not as meaty 🍖 🥩
I also miss Free Wongs Fridays 🐥
But the £5 cocktails was a hit 🍹 🍸
Oh and start the music earlier 🎶
Great as always!
Great food and awesome vibe! Went on a Sunday night and it still had a good atmosphere.
Great venue, great value, great service! Flawless experience!
Music too loud for people having dinner but good one, great for dancing all night long
Food was great so were the staff, bar is huge with wide selection of drinks
We had a great meal on Saturday the food was amazing the best ribs I've ever tasted and great value.
The only disappointing thing was that the band let you down so we didn't experience the live music.
Will definitely be back
- Lovely, helpful and attentive staff
- Speedy service
- Best meat ever
- Good variety including vegan options
- If you’re looking for a casual meal, it’s best to go mid-week as weekends are SUPER noisy
- Meals come with fries or salad. If you order fries, you get a decent portion. Side salads are a few measly leafs with tomato DRENCHED in creamy dressing. Side salads should be bigger with dressing on side.
Made us move table once we had already ordered and settled. But food ad regular refills were great.
Great music, great vibe, great service. The food arrived quickly and our wait staff were diligent and checked up on us consistently. I felt well taken care of. The food was good, not the best ever but very delicious. My only criticism is because the "hot" chicken I ordered was basically smothered in some sort of Tabasco- based hot sauce. Not so much spicy, but vinegary and tangy. It was hard to finish. Apart from that everything was great! The cocktails were delicious and the type of crowd this place attracts is wonderful.
Tutto molto buono, cibo e servizio di ottima qualità
Food is great every time! Real American pig-out , get your hands dirty kind-of of meal
Great service smashing grub
You can’t go wrong
Only downside is that you have certain period of time to dine in before another dinner is allocated your table
Am a semi regular at the Blues Kitchen so I am a fan of their venues but on this occasion I felt a bit rushed to leave my table. They seated my party 30mins earlier (which was great) but pressure was on us to clear out as we were eating dessert.
Been here so many times and it’s always really good, however the food quality this time wasn’t like it usually is, hopefully just a one off
Loved the venue, the service was great and the vegan burger really tasty! The only thing I would say I wasn't totally happy with was the pre-gig music volume coming out from the speakers in the restaurant area, pretty hard to communicate with eachother. Apart from that, amazing venue.
I really enjoyed my meal at the Blues kitchen. It was busy and had a great atmosphere. The food was wonderful and were very generous portions. Overall it was lovely. The only issue I had was that they brought the bill over and asked us to pay and leave because they needed the table. Me and my friend was halfway through a drink and so at the end we felt really rushed and outed.
Busy with twenty-something’s all having a relaxed Saturday lunch with friends. Loved the food and drinks.
We had our 1yo baby with us and I guess they aren’t really prepared for children. The (apparently) new disabled toilet with baby-changing table had no bin at all, no hand wash, no toilet paper and the door didn’t lock... felt like an afterthought to say the least. Would go again for sure without child!
The atmosphere in this restaurant and bar is excellent - especially if you enjoy live music! Our server was incredibly helpful and all of her recommendations were great.
Had an excellent night at Blues Kitchen. The only downside was that we had to give our table up at 10pm. To be fair, we did have the table from 8pm, and it did advise on the booking we only had 2 hours, however I feel like if you have a table from 8pm, you should be allowed to keep it for the evening. If we were allowed the table for the rest of the night we would definitely stayed longer for drinks... possibly desert.
The Blues Kitchen venue, staff, food and band were all amazing!
Great food and great service would definitely return
Loved it! They made our birthday special. The vibe and food is lovely there.
One of my fave places in London. Great for meet up with friends!
It was a perfect way to celebrate my birthday and the food, staff and setting was fantastic. Thank you.
Amazing dinner, lovely staff and great food. The local is super cool, you want to spend there hours! We will come back for sure!
My only criticism is that the majority of the vegetarian and seafood food is very spicy, luckily the waitress pointed this out, and I chose the vegan burger. But if different spice levels could be chosen, or at least this highlighted in the menu it’d be less disappointing.
