Squaremeal Review of Rivington Grill Shoreditch ?

Like its younger sibling in Greenwich, this slick and elegant eatery is exactly what you'd expect from Caprice Holdings, with crisp white tablecloths, a generous helping of Brit art and a mixed clientele (cool young locals and more mature professionals). The kitchen continues to deliver "very British food to a high standard", taking in everything from comfort classics (steamed chicken, bacon and leek pie) to upbeat contemporary ideas (seared Cornish scallops with broad beans and chorizo) via ever-popular Scotch duck eggs, dry-aged steaks, fish and chips, and puds such as spotted dick with custard. We're also excited about their new weekend brunch, which offers the obligatory avocado on toast and full English alongside the likes of spatchcock poussin with fries. To drink, go for a signature Rivington Mary or a slushy frozen cocktail. Service hits all the right notes.

The food here continues to be very British and of a high standard. The scotch duck egg is recommended and the venison and kidney pudding was well received by the guests who ordered this hearty main course. Service was very good and helped to make an excellent meal.

Great Food on the Edge of the City!

Jul 2015

I picked this restaurant for the annual get together lunch with some very dear friends that my husband and I met on holiday a few years ago. The menu offered a good selection of meat, fish and vegetarian options, which appealed to us all. We ate our way through scallops (perfectly cooked), Dover Sole, Sea Bass, Lamb Cutlets and Pork Tenderloin and enjoyed every mouthful. The desserts were equally delicious, with a nice mixture of the traditional (Gooseberry Crumble) and more decadent (luxurious...

Very solid performance

by   bronze reviewer (13)

May 2013

I rather enjoyed Rivington Grill. It is spring – so I had asparagus, which was fresh and properly treated (if not excellent as one gets in Munich, for example) and a lumb cutlet, which was perfectly cooked and full of flavour. Menu is well constructed and it is not difficult to choose a meal. There are even ‘bragging rights’ items, for instance gull eggs and Brazilian wine (which turned out quite drinkable and a good match for lamb). Tracey Emin's ‘artwork’ was less intrusive then I feared, so –...

I was hungry for a steak and Gaucho was fully booked, so ended up here. A reasonably basic and maybe uninspiring menu but does what it says well, the best English. I had the Bannockburn rib steak with chips, which was cooked as ordered and very tender and tasty. Service was good and attentive, and didn’t mind as we dawdled over the courses in no rush to get back to the office. Nice, but for a steak I’d still call Gaucho first, but this is a great second choice.

I took some Spanish clients here for dinner and they were impressed, both by the airy, bright space (they immediately noted that the tables were not crammed together as they usually are in London) buzzy atmosphere and the British classic cuisine. Salad starters were well dressed and well balanced and the mains, we went for fish fingers and chips, roast chicken and bangers and mash, were simply, hearty and well executed. Our only complaint was that the portions of chicken were too large for anyone...

Our party of 4 had a very mixed experience at the Rivington. The atmosphere was sadly lacking something and the décor a little stark. As to the food …….Our starters : Smoked trout and black pudding was good, Eggs Benedict ok, nothing special, but looked very lonely served on a big white plate, smoked anchovies, served from a tin, quirky but good and the Manx kipper pate very good. Our mains was where we had the real difference between the good and the bad, the Cornish lamb was delicious and cooked...

Underwhelming experience, The Cornish crab with toast and mayonaise had as much skill in its execution as a Marks and Spencers crab sandwich (thank God for the slice of lemon). The Game faggots with yellow split peas and chanterelles as a main should have been branded as offal balls with sickly sweet wine sauce and beans. The only redeaming meal was the Wild rabbit, bacon and mustard pie, but this was only because it happened to be better than everything else (nothing special). The service was adequate,...
