I have to say the whole experience was underwhelming. Service was attentive although not particularly welcoming and just "matter of fact" throughout the evening. Now I understand some people prefer this and that's fine, but it's not what I expected from a place so hyped about. What's more important is that food was just bland and lacking punch. We had the 6 course tasting menu and, to my surprise, a restaurant serving a fixed set of courses has problems keeping a steady pace between them, so we were left waiting between them. The pre-desert and the desert could have been inverted and be equally disappointing - a peeled grapefruit with watery burned sugar and first, and elderflower ice-cream after. It all gets compounded by the decor, made to resemble an austere industrial complex (cheap pine tables and poor lighting included), which in the middle of central London is looks just ridiculous. In short, Dabbous lacks imagination and talent; it's a £250-a-couple cookie cutter restaurant for boring people.

Not convinced by this restaurant I've heard a lot about. £45 for a set menu without the drinks. The venue is ok but not amazing. I think it's much ado about nothing

Delicious cocktails. Amazing service. Unique blend of flavours. Perfect location for a special occasion.

I haven't been to the upstairs restaurant, but the bar downstairs is not pleasant if you have come, like most people, to have a social experience. The bar itself has a DJ despite the fact that there is no dancing so that outrageously loud music can be piped in to ruin any chance of conversation (even if you scream). Moreover, the entire place seems to have been acoustically designed to be as loud as possible - sure, it sounds like everyone is having fun, but you won't be. It's £10 a cocktail, which is standard London prices, but you can get better elsewhere with a chance in hell of actually talking to the people you came with. Would not recommend.

Have eaten here once when it first opened and also recently. The quality still remains - beautiful creative plates, delicate and interesting flavours. It's obviously not everyday food so it's best for that treat dinner or a foodie outing. The room can feel quite stark and cold so it's nicer to book later in the evening when it's in full service and buzzing (we were the first diners and initially the restaurant lacked atmosphere). The youthful staff are very passionate and cool, it's a hipster version of Michelin dining! The freshly baked bread served in a cute brown paper bag hand-stamped with the date is a nice touch.

Outstanding food - but good luck getting a table! With extraordinary food, presented breathtakingly, you'll be in for a real treat. Whether it's delectable, tender meat, foams and soups or rich, homely desserts with a twist, everything that Dabbous serves is delicious. The only problem: you'll find it next to impossible to get a table - they disappear immediately booking opens. Hit the website hourly, and something might appear if you're lucky!

Left feeling hungry! Poor wine list, and rather uncomfortable seats. Did not enjoy at all. The only positive was the staff, very friendly and polite.

Ads:Excellent customer service, ambience and a good wine list. Dis: What let Dabbous down was the food. The food was dull, unoriginal and unsatisfying. I have tried a lot of tasting menus in London (the Ledbury, chotto matte, Nobu for example) and this failed to come close to these. The two main courses were far too similar in taste. The desert was just glorified ice cream. One thing that really annoyed me was i had to eat again after the meal as i was still hungry. You expect the portions to be small at a place like this but Dabbous was at the extreme end of the scale. When you spend £250 for a meal for two the one thing you at least expect is to be comfortably full.
