Great meals... Delicious restaurant.. It was the first time for us to dicover such delious food
Consistently good; great food, attentive, but not overbearing, service and stylish decor
This was food to savour-- every bite was a delight and the superb balance of flavours became more apparent with each mouthful. This was a meal to linger over.
The service was warm and welcoming. The knowledge and generosity of the staff was impressive, and they went out of their way to make our experience one to remember.
Thank you Ottolenghi Spitalfields!
Excellent experience. Tasty fresh interesting food. Very enjoyable dinner.
What a wonderful experience!
Nice atmosphere (a bit noisy), with excellent quality food.
amazing food, keenly priced, a bit too noisy. but overall I enjoyed the food a lot!
Ottolenghi never disappoints! The food was delicious as usual and the staff were very accommodating and friendly. I was happy with everything!
Delicious food, great atmosphere and lovely bar and waiting staff. We had a wonderful time.
we sat at bar and as well as enjoying great food had superb interaction with the bar staff who even gave us a mini wine tasting of the orange wines. Great
The food is fresh and look beautiful, and although we were a little late the staff were friendly and helpful.
Lovely food and staff. More choice would be nice 😊
A lovely breakfast and birthday request honoured which was much appreciated
We loved the food and the atmosphere. We had a very nice breakfast there and the staff was very helpful and friendly
Ok so, let's be honest, it is wonderfully tasty and not just another experience. There is so much passion and flavors in the plates, you should definitely go for it. Some might even say "Keep Calm & Go to Ottolenghi" ❤️
The staff makes an impressive job and everything for you to be at ease and have the very best time at their place, I'll come back as soon as I return to London!
I met a friend here for a meal. Food was fantastic. Service was good. On the surface it may appear expensive but it was good value for money.
Wonderful food. Dining space was a little loud.
Excellent food and service in a fantastic setting. Highly recommended
The food was outstanding. Service was also good. What let it down massively was the noise levels. There was no acoustic dampening so the chat got louder & louder.
Such a shame as it wasn’t like that when we last dined
The clever mix of flavours and textures is a delight. Each dish is s gem on it’s own and several of the tapas sized potions together create a wonderful meal. The service is always excellent, which is no mean feat in such s busy place. Recommended.
Great amazing tasty food to suit all palates. Would return.
Lovely evening - thoughtful menu, delicious food, interesting wine list (though pricey), excellent service.
We enjoyed our evening and the food was lovely. The salads are unusual and really tasty. We were sat at the bar which was really comfortable and was in many ways nicer than a table.
The staff were fine and service was good. The only thing is that it is a pricey meal for the size of portions especially the meat options. The kebab is over £17 and it is more like a starter. Tasty but a bit overpriced.
Absolutely loved the food and cannot fault . So much taste but not one dish over powered the other .
Ordered 5 dishes between two of us and a desert each and found this plenty.
Waiter was very friendly and helpful.
Will go back again
Delicious food. Everything is so tasty and researched thoughtfully. Loved it and will definitely come back
Wonderful food and amazing, friendly and attentive service in a bustling-but-not-too-loud dining room.
The food was everything I hoped it would be. We all loved the eggplant, beef short ribs, and roasted peppers with soft cheese. It was an evening to remember.
Whilst we thoroughly enjoyed most of our food I would not recommend the chicken - tough and tasteless. Visually it would have been better to have our salad accompaniments on separate dishes - not all lumped together on one dish.
If you have a problem with your hearing be warned it’s very noisy.
Overall though we enjoyed our lunch.
The food is amazing. Quality ingredients and full of flavour. Friendly staff, we really enjoyed our dinner.
We were carefully looked after! If I could give the restaurant even more stars, I certainly would!
Delicious food, friendly and knowledgeable service.
Great tastes & useful dessert suggestion from helpful staff
The food was simply outstanding - every bite lived up to the hype. We weren't lucky and the table next to us was particularly loud, but they left eventually and the atmosphere went back to what it must usually be like: softly animated. Splurged and had dessert although we really didn't have any room left: it was the night's third best idea (after coming, and ordering the marinated aubergine).
Ottolenghi Spitalfields was an amazing experience, the food was delicious and the service excellent.
Fantastic food, loved it! Would have benefitted if had vegan options available without having to tweek the existing menu options.
Absolutely delicious food, superb service - desserts to die for looking forward to returning
Delicious food from the salad counter. The restaurant was bright and beautiful on the inside. My meal was healthy, colorful and full of flavor. A great experience at Ottolenghi!
Always great food with great service. Only point of critique is that we had our baby with us and there wasn't any baby food option.
as usual the food was delicious and the service excellent. lunch time is better value than dinner time as you can get a plate of 3 or 4 salads rather than several dishes but it's still not cheap. the food makes it worth it though.
I love it here, the staff are amazing and the food is great. My only slight gripe is that I wish they'd change the breakfast menu a bit more often. But it's a tiny gripe in a sea of satisfaction.
