Great atmosphere, excellent food and really good value for money.

Service was quick, however, all wiaters/waitresses seemed to be nervous as they had spilt both lemonade on the table and then also chips on the table and floor - it wasn't even busy with 6 guests having lunch (including myself and additional company)

On a good note, apologies were made, tablecloth changed and more fries brought over. Service charge was still stuck on though.

Wonderful lunch at Refuel which all of our party thoroughly enjoyed. The food choice was excellent and varied with plenty to choose for both meat eaters and vegetarians. Our waitress was delightful, knowing when to offer advice and assistance and being extremely knowledgeable about the food and wine. I think she was either Spanish or Italian. I also liked the fact that the tables were nicely spaced so you had an element of privacy and could talk without being heard by the neighbouring table. An excellent lunch option.

Two of us took advantage of the evening meal deal, which offers great value, given the location and venue.

Food was prompt and fresh, and there is a good choice on the daily deal.

There is a great buzz in the restaurant & bar (which share the same space).

Excellent service; attentive, friendly but not obtrusive.

My girlfriend and I normally go for Sunday breakfast together. This is nowhere near as good as Deanstreet Townhouse. The quality of the ingredients are so wildly different.

Refuel is a consistently great experience, and such great value. The set menu has some good options, and the staff are unobtrusive and friendly. The noise level can vary (it does have a large bar, and we did have a table of very loud diners next to us, but thankfully they went out for regular cigarettes!) but that doesn't detract much from the experience.

We had a lovely table and it was early enough so that it quiet and we could have a good conversation. We were looking for some good starters to share but the plates are really setup for individual portions. But we shared the broccoli, the gnocchi and the scallops amongst three people. We all had fish and the proportions were nice, not too much not too little. They had some lovely cocktails as well, but the bar menu was a bit tricky to navigate, focused more on the wines by the glass instead of the cocktails. Overall it was a fine evening but nothing super special that makes me feel like I’m dying to go back.

Had a wonderful evening at Refuel, setting was lovely, tables a decent distance from one another and no loud music. Service was impeccable, best I've experienced in a long time, slightly annoyed I didn't catch our waiter's name as he deserves a special mention for the perfect blend of discreet but always there when we needed him.

Food on the set menu was delicious and no one went home hungry. Admittedly drinks were expensive but balanced by the good value set menu overall I'm very happy with the price we paid.

Had afternoon tea here on Saturday 19th January 2018. I had Called prior and asked for a comfortable seat,which we got . Unfortunately the table was Very long with one at each end ! My daughter was by an open door and it was very cold! The staff were very nice and very helpful but when I said the desserts were not very nice they ignored me ! All in all I paid over £60 And had a couple of small sandwiches and one dessert, the desserts may be to someone else’s taste so I understand it maybe be a preference thing ... but all a bit disappointing

Lovely restaurant and decor, however, we asked the waitress where the Prosecco was from and she informed us that Prosecco is Champagne. First two courses were lovely, I then had cheese - Brie- it was extremely cold from the fridge, a few biscuits and a ramekin of what looked like Branston but no decoration (not in keeping with the first two courses). I ate half of it. The waitress then filled my friend’s wine glass (Chablis) with sparkling water.

We had Afternoon Tea at the Soho Hotel last Saturday and would definitely return. The food was delicious, plentiful and very reasonably priced. The staff were attentive but not intrusive and even took the trouble to box the last of the cakes we had been unable to eat, thanks to already being pretty stuffed! We enjoyed it so much we stayed on in the bar afterwards for cocktails. Highly recommended!

Great restaurant in the heart of London that is beautifully decorated. The food is quite pricey but tastes absolutely exquisite. I took foreign friends there and they loved every single dish we had. Service was a bit slow for my liking but the quality of the food and presentation (I had very specific requests for shared dishes) made up for it. I’d definitely be happy to back again!

Nice experience overall!

Excellent service with nicely prepared dishes but I think for the price you pay I would expect a little bit more flavour. The garnish for the fish was bland and the pork chop didn't have much taste of sage like it was described.

Nevertheless the place has an amazing ambience and playful decorations.

We went here for my wife Christmas celebration, and what an special moment it was! We ordered the afternoon tea and everything was delicious, but beside that the service was beyond our expectations... Mohammed was a fantastic host and all the rest of the crew made us feel like at home, my mother in law had a terrific time with the Spanish speakers of the crew, they were really nice!! Thanks a lot for a fantastic afternoon.

Refuel is one of those tucked away places in heart of Soho that nobody knows about! I am a regular visitor especially because of the quiet ambience - you can actually have a conversation without shouting, other diners are far enough away that you are not forced to listen to inane conversations. The clientele tends to be more mature, people are there for all reasons other than to have lots to drink. Can't recommend it highly enough. The staff are amazing and attentive without being intrusive. The food is modern, tasty and always very well presented
