Respond to Review of The Gate Restaurant
Review: We came here for dinner on a recent trip to London for a gig. The person who greeted us was a little unfriendly when I asked for a table for 2, stating "you didn't book?" This, despite the fact that it was 5:30pm and the place had 3 customers! However, our servers were extremely friendly and the decor was fab, very modern/industrial and cool. It was a little pricey, but we had the set menu (2 courses for £12.50) which seemed very reasonable. The food was really tasty and service was quick (perhaps because it was so quiet!) This was my second experience of a London restaurant adding a service charge to the bill, which I think is extremely cheeky. Maybe it's a London thing, but it feels a bit like bullying! Overall, good food, nice atmosphere, and 80% of the staff were lovely!
