Granary Square Brasserie, a new restaurant brand from the team behind the Ivy Collection.

The brasserie buzz through breakfast, morning coffee, lunch and cream teas in the afternoon. Throughout the day the lounge area will be perfect to relax with a drink or for informal meetings with luxurious vintage leather chairs and low brass tables. As the sun sets and we get ready for dinner, the DJ set will begin, and cocktails will flow.

The restaurant is beautiful with cut glass pendant lights, banquettes upholstered in silk and velvet and exotic kilim rugs. The striking central bar, located in the heart of the room, is perfect to survey the scene and enjoy an aperitif cocktail.

    I enjoyed the shepherd's pie and broccoli. I would have had the Keralan curry as I've had it before but didn't want it with duck. My friend had this but agreed it's much nicer with fish. We had olives but £3.75 for 5 olives is overpriced. The decor and music made it feel like a good night out rather than just a restaurant.

    Good food, good location, service adequate. Worst was the pumping disco music from the DJ which completely spoiled the occasion. Far too loud, and judging by who was there for a meal, mostly inappropriate for the clientele. Pity but the over loud pumping disco music will put me off from going there again, shame because good really good value.

    The food was good but my “pot” of coffee was tiny and the service was pretty bad. We had to wait a while to be asked for our order but then they rushed us with the check.

    I’ve eaten with my family here on a number of occasions and have always enjoyed the experiences. Normally I would give it a high rating, sadly on this occasion I walked away disappointed. I’d specifically arranged brunch for my daughters birthday and asked if they could do a little birthday surprise at the end of the meal, candle in a cake, the usual but nice kind of thing to mark the occasion. However, despite asking at the time of booking and again when we arrived at the restaurant, they failed to do anything. The food was good, as usual, but this time I felt let down by the service, and though it didn’t spoil the meal and my daughter was none the wiser, it did leave me feeling disappointed and crossing it off my list of special occasion places to go. But hey, in the grand scheme of things it’s a first world problem!

    50th birthday celebration. Paid £55 per head for a table of 7 which is double the amount I would typically pay for a meal out. Did we get twice the value - I would say not. The best things were the location in Granary Square and the food (although still not twice the quality you’d expect). Other aspects were below par: ambiance inside the restaurant was cramped, noisy and too hot so we asked to move outside as we’d been given the option when we arrived. The staff happily obliged which was great. That said the table was clearly suited to and laid for six people. No effort was made to make our table ready for 7 of us: we had to add an extra chair ourselves and ask for additional glass and cutlery (not a big deal, but certainly not the extra service you think you’re paying for.) Service was prompt and efficient (mainly to turn the table for next cover which we were prewarned about) - but I’ve experienced far friendlier in far cheaper establishments. Overall, I had been hoping for something “special” to remember my partner’s 50th but I cannot say there was much about the experience that fell into that category (in fact I will unfortunately remember it for the things I felt led to a less than value for money experience)

    A perfect evening. The Maitre D on the night was incredibly accommodating about moving to a different table. The service at our table was gracious and just right. The food was delicious and service for drinks and food was very efficient. No long waits. When our time was up on our table, we were reserved two seats at the bar to continue our evening over a final drink or two. The barman was amazing and offered advice about what to try. His ideas for vodka martinis are spot on! The atmosphere was lively and warm and really took me back to pre lockdown memories of what it is like to go out to dinner in a great restaurant and have a perfect time!

    Not a great experience. It was busy and noisy. Our starter arrived quickly and was very nice. However we waited 40 mins for our main course of fish and chips. When it arrived it tasted like it had been sitting on the hot plate. Soggy and not crispy. Our wine was placed in a bucket by another table. We ended up getting it and pouring our own as this was not done for us.We complained and the manager dealt with the situation nicely and removed the cost of the main course from our bill. He also gave us coffee on the house. Overall very poor standard and not what I would expect from the Ivy group.

    It was lovely to return to the Brasserie: we have been there before Covid and it was good to go back! The food was excellent, with good size portions and very tasty. The brasserie itself is beautiful inside marrying industrial design with an Art Deco bar and furniture. The staff were all very friendly. However, it seemed that the place was understaffed. We had to wait for a very long time for our drinks to arrive, even though our order was taken promptly. Then, once we ate, the empty and dirty plates were left at our table for over 15 minutes with no one collecting them. We had to ask twice for them to be collected and we had to ask twice for a dessert menu. The staff were obliging and kind but we should not have been asking for plates to be cleared again and again or for dessert menus. Also, the Brasserie was very full and the noise levels were high. We would love to go again but maybe not on a Saturday afternoon.

    Lovely location, decor and food. Very busy on the Saturday lunch time we visited although this didn't affect the service. We enjoyed our meal - the only one criticism would be that our main courses arrived minutes after ordering. Luckily we had taken our time ordering so this didn't affect our experience. Overall a lovely lively restaurant in a great location. Would recommend.

    Went there for breakfast yesterday morning and it was one of the best breakfasts I’ve had. I ALWAYS eat out so I’ve seen my fair share of restaurants and this has honestly become one of my favourites from a just one meal. From the food to every single staff that served us, they were genuinely so nice and helpful. Definitely a place I’d come to again and recommend, wish I lived close by.

    From start to finish, the service was excellent. The food and cocktails were amazing and good value. A lovely ambience in this area of Kings X which was new to us as “Midlanders”. The scallops, sea bass and accompaniments were perfection and I’d highly recommend. Will definitely call again on my next visit to London.

    Good choice of food, lovely polite service. Lovely NZ Sauvignon blanc. Fairly quiet, probably because this was a late lunch. Polite request to the kitchen. Do not mess with my favourite dessert. I do not want chocolate shavings and honeycomb crunch sprinkled on my fine apple tart, thank you very much! I was very suprised that members of staff are not wearing masks. We cannot protect ourselves because we are eating and drinking and therefore felt vulnerable.

    We had a nice dinner but it was totally spoilt by the quite aggressive style in which we were asked to leave the table as our 2.5 hours was nearly up. I don’t think 2.5 hrs is long enough for a slot when there’s a group of you and you are spending nearly £300 on the experience. We didn’t even have time for coffee. Very disappointing and will think again before booking this restaurant for another occasion. Horrible money grabbing tactics - if the slot had been 3 hours there would have been no problem.
