Explore Harden's - The restaurant guide created by you for you

survey result

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Summary

“Overpriced, overhyped”… and over here! This year-old outpost of the famous NYC steakhouse brand – part of the Adelphi, just off the Strand – inspires very mixed feedback. Its business appeal is evident: it’s “very spacious”, “very well furnished (if you like that ‘prestigious’ US steakhouse furnishings and decor thing)”, and provides “a 500+ bin wine list featuring some esoteric US vintages”. Service though is not only “American-Yank style” (“I’m your waiter this evening, etc”), but also surprisingly “hit and miss”; the interior can seem “loud and booming”; and though many reports acknowledge that this is some of the best meat in London, the price/quality trade-off is much better elsewhere.

Summary

With a reputed £10m spent on converting the ground floor of The Adelphi, just off The Strand, this hallowed US steakhouse brand’s first incursion into the UK market makes a bold statement, with 300 seats, endless leather and brass, and a menu packed with USDA cuts. It opened too late for survey feedback – early press reports suggest it may be heading down the same beserk over-pricing route pursued by other US imports like Palm (RIP) and Cut, but the business-friendly location here could prove a saving grace.
