Heddon Street Kitchen 1

Squaremeal Review of Heddon Street Kitchen ?

“Laid-back but fancy” is how one reader describes this Gordon Ramsay restaurant, although we think its sleek, sexy looks suggest a venue from his all-conquering protégé Jason Atherton. Everyone is welcome for food that’s “always of the highest standard” without demanding too much from the assembled company. Breakfast (home-baked raspberry and almond bread with vanilla butter, perhaps) kicks things off, and the globally influenced all-day carte knows how to please. Beef Wellington with truffle mash and red wine jus is “unbelievably good” according to one fan, although you can also get short rib or crispy chilli chicken burgers, fish pie and an accessible set option. An ice-cream bar menu, with build-your-own cones, sandwiches and wafer baskets, adds to the fun, as do staff who are “above friendly, and always very attentive”. A Coravin system keeps by-the-glass wines in good nick, while bottles are listed by style, grape and region.

Scrumptious Sticky Toffee Pudding

by   (2)

Sep 2017

A group of five of us had dinner here. We ordered from the set menu (which we had to ask for separately) but it contained a good range of dishes to satisfy all 5 of us. Some starters were better than others and the flatbread was a bit of a let down. I had the chicken wings which were very tasty. However main courses (which had to be supplemented by sides as none were included) were all very nice with good flavour. The best part was the sticky toffee pudding which I had for dessert. Scrumptious. All...

Expensive - won't be back

Jan 2016

I thought I had booked a 2 for 1 on main meals throughout January but was told not at 19:30 - yet it allowed me to book this time via square meal. Anyway, the house champagne, although lovely, was £54 a bottle, a tad expensive I think. My friend and I had a main course each and 1 side with a second bottle of this house champagne and were faced with a bill for £164. Now if my main had been delicious then I might not have been too upset but I literally had a very bad cannelloni that had...

Shame on Square Meal for giving it a star

by   platinum reviewer (51)

Jun 2015

Considering Ramsay has made a fortune from TV's "Kitchen Nightmares", he should really get off the box and back in the kitchen himself! We went on a Friday lunchtime to a largely empty restaurant, so it should have been efficient. I can only assume that Gordon ensured that the wait staff were all lobotomised before service. 3 times we asked for water (2 different people) and at the end of our starter my companion had to get up and find a waitress (!) to ask for the wine that we...

This is a shitty restaurant in a shitty street

Mar 2015

The worst moment of my evening was the man from the bar next door puking outside the window I was seated next to. The highlight of my evening was leaving this dreadful place. Gordon Ramsay should be ashamed of putting his name to such an anonymous establishment in such an awful street serving up such mediocre food. This man is an acclaimed Michelin starred chef but this level of food is noting to get excited about. A restaurant better to be avoided.

A nice lunch treat, but socks stayed firmly in place.

Jan 2015

Editor's pick We had a nice meal at the Heddon Street Kitchen today (mid January '15). Once I had gone in the correct door and styled out the original attempt to go in the glass emergency exit door, I was warmly welcomed and swiftly shown to my table. The actual restaurant decor is slightly bi-polar. It has the look of a basement bar (think Hawksmoor at Seven Dials) but it is at street level. This means there is a huge window which alters the feel slightly, to perhaps eating in a branch of All Saints rather...

A Curate's Egg ...

by   (1)

Jan 2015

On a mid-January Tuesday the place was empty at 6pm yet we had booked and were given the worst table - why? My guest was early and was already seated with a drink so it was a slight upheaval. We were moved with no problem to a much better table. An annoying start. We were surprised to see the menu was exactly the same as on a previous visit in early December. We did not want starters which did not seem to go down very well with the waiter. Just as well we didn't, the pork belly was very...

Excellant

Dec 2014

Had a fantastic meal on Saturday 6th Dec, we were a table of four diners and all had something different off the menu and none of us were dissapointed, one tip we ordered two sides of sprouts for two of us but one would of been plenty for two to share. The Staff were friendly, will go again and would highly recommend, do not be put off by the negative reviews as we could not fault this restaurant and throughly enjoyed our dinning experience.

Professional package

by   gold reviewer (32)

Dec 2014

Gordon Ramsay clearly knows a thing or two about restaurants as this new place proves. It ticks a lot of boxes. Good location. Check. Airy, contemporary surroundings. Check. Friendly, well drilled staff. Check. Varied bar and restaurant offerings. Check. Open kitchen adding to a fun atmosphere. Check. You can eat here for about £35 including a glass of wine or you can spend a whole lot more – our bill for four came to £280. A bottle of Nyetimber 09 at £70 didn’t seem a complete...

The best chips in London, but probably not enough else to bring you here

by   platinum reviewer (62)

Dec 2014

Heddon Street Kitchen is the latest venue from Gordon Ramsay (the man himself - sporting a magnificent quiff and leather jacket combo and looking like he was auditioning for Grease - was in having dinner the night we went, and the staff looked suitably tense) and if you’ve been to Union Street Café you’ll instantly spot the similarity in terms of décor: it’s all industrial chic with exposed pipework, dark wood, visible supporting columns etc. That alone largely summarises my overall...

    Memoirs Of A Metro Girl :: Memoirs Of A Metro Girl: Heddon Street Kitchen review: Ramsay cuisine at affordable prices in a modern, buzzy eaterie

    For all the years I’ve been dining out in London, I can’t believe I haven’t been to a Gordon Ramsay restaurant until now. In fact, Heddon Street Kitchen is one of the newest additions to the chef’s expanding empire, having opened in November 2014. Similar to Bread Street Kitchen in the city, the establishment is more relaxed and affordable than Ramsay’s other ventures.

    SilverSpoon London :: SilverSpoon London - A luxury lifestyle blog : A not-too-hedonistic lunch at Heddon Street Kitchen

    Back in the days of my misspent youth, before I was a sensible (!) married woman...my friends and I used to head to the rather appropriately named Heddon Street for a night out. The hedonistic night would often begin with cocktails at a bar called The Living Room, and once suitably inebriated (and I hang my head in shame) we'd head next door to Strawberry Moons to dance the night away to cheesy music. It was back in the heyday of Girls Aloud, Will Young was in the charts, Blue were huge and even the Crazy Frog had a single...

    Eating Covent Garden :: Heddon Street Kitchen: the new baby in Gordon Ramsay’s family | Eating Covent Garden

    I’m a big fan of Gordon Ramsay’s Union Street Cafe in Southwark, so when I heard of another new opening, I had to get in quick. Okay, so Gordon doesn’t actually work at these places (not that he’s pretending he is), but I have no issue with this as he does seem to have the knack of nurturing really good head chefs.

    At Heddon Street Kitchen it’s Maria Tampakis at the helm. She hails from Brooklyn in New York, is part of a large Greek family (so has spent a lot of time in Greece, lucky her) and she describes the offering as “seasonal modern European food spiked with Asian influences”. So far so good...

    Heddon Street Kitchen is part of the Gordon Ramsay group, and serves up modern European cuisine all day. Very conveniently located on pedestrianised Heddon Street, it’s right in the heart of the Regent Street Food Quarter

    I was meeting fellow foodies Angie and Catherine, and calling it a healthy lunch might be a slight misnomer as we wasted no time ordering a glass of Prosecco. To be fair, we were celebrating Catherine’s birthday and her trip to Australia, Angie’s recent visit to South Africa, and my new partnership. On the food front, we all went for virtuous starters. Angie and I both opted for the beautifully...
