This restaurant is well established and never fails to please. The food is of good quality and although not cheap it is worth the money.

Four of us went to Lussmanns in St Albans and had a great evening. The service from Carianne was top notch and the food excellent. Even the rain couldn't dampen our enjoyment of the evening, must go back soon.

I shared a meal with clients in the private room upstairs. The room itself was a lovely use of space, cosy yet airy, quaint with a modern feel. The food was fantastic and the service top notch. I will definitely go again.

We really enjoy our meal. The venue looks great even in the rain. They offer a menu of two courses for £12.95. The fish starter was superb and the fish cake as main was very tasty too. The service is excellent. Will recommend it.
