Ottolenghi has been my favourite brunch spot for a while now (and there are several places to go for brunch in the area!) My partner and I are vegetarian and the scrambled tofu is just delightful. There are a few separate tables, but be prepared...More

Been here several times over the years and the food is always visually stunning and a joy to eat. The tastes, textures and combinations of both are incredible and well considered. This night was no exception, although it would be good to get more comfortable...More

Went for a casual supper. Easy to book, had a place at a communal table. Amazing waiter, good atmosphere and perfect food. Good wine choices and knowledgable waiter advising on wine. A bit pricey but ok for London. Will definitely come again.

We are fans of the cookbooks so we were excited to go. The food is amazing. Everything we ordered was sensational. Restored our faith in London restaurants as we have been disappointed with most places.

Was dissapointed to find the dinner menu such poor value. I spent £40 and got a 2 inch square of celleriac, one beatroot cut up and half an aubergine. It may be flavoured well but simply felt hungry and ripped off. Each dish was £9/£11!!!!...More

Reservations are not accepted for lunch. Even without reservations as an option, it is worth waiting in a queue for a table! Opening times Monday to Saturday 8am-10:30pm Sunday 9am-7pm
