The Piano was awesome! The music was incredible and the atmosphere was great, really good night out. The staff were so welcoming and went out of their way to accomodate us, even stopping the music, bringing out my Fiancee's birthday cake and singing happy birthday! Would definitely recommend a visit. visited Piano Kensington on 24 Jun 2017

Due to the bad acoustics in this bar, the music was far too loud and harsh sounding. Choice of material was predictable and not very interesting. Overall, the bar had a soulless feeling, lacking in warmth. The white walls and small framed photographs did not help. Not a good environment for jazz or even chatting with friends.

Great vibe and absolutely love the live piano performance. Piano gets extremely crowded. tables need to be booked way ahead in advance and even then you may get kicked off! Best thing to do is get in early @ 6pm find a spot by the piano or standing area on the left and camp there! We had 10 people and were able to squish in. Staff members try their best to accommodate but be warned this place gets hell busy so expect to be waiting around for a while... over all if you can cope with this you'll have a fab time as the music is fantastic and drinks are reasonably priced. They also do food! We ordered truffle infused chips, chicken skewers and arancini balls. Did see some people order cheese and charcuterie platters too! visited Piano Kensington on 18 Feb 2017

A highly enjoyable evening! Lovely atmosphere - the gentleman on the door for the most part of the evening needs a medal! He was constantly on the ball making sure everyone in the bar had a good evening and that any niggles were nipped in the bud, excellent work - made for a very safe environment and evening for all to enjoy. The gentleman on the piano was excellent. Highly entertaining, played none stop and kept everyone in a boyant spirit. Food was good but perhaps larger portions would have been more appropriate? but what we had did taste good. Thank you. visited Piano Kensington on 11 Feb 2017

We went on saturday for an early valentines day celebration. We had fun singing and dancing along in the first 30mins but it was soon spoiled by a group of girls that bumped our table while dancing in the narrow space between the tables - our cocktail glasses were tripped over and we were covered in cocktails. We were all so sticky and stinking of cocktail after that and could not stay on to enjoy the night. Considering the venue is very cosy, i think perhaps ppl should be reminded not to dance in the narrow space and risk causing this sort of accident which i can easily see happening a lot! It was such a shame we had to leave because of this, the rest of the night was spent washing off our clothes that we could wash, and the rest of course had to be dry cleaned which makes the half an hour at the bar very expensive now! visited Piano Kensington on 11 Feb 2017

Great location but not quite as expected. We arrived for pre-dinner drinks and the place was draughty and more of a University bar than Jazz bar. Table that I reserved several weeks before for special birthday was too close to Piano and when we questioned this,and asked to move to one of the several empty tables, this was not possible. Not impressed Piano Kensington, definitely will not be returning. visited Piano Kensington on 10 Feb 2017

I've been to the piano bar Kensington a few times and always enjoyed it. The pianist was excellent, the music was great and the staff were attentive. However, there were so many people there that I couldn't enjoy it properly. None of us could. Even going to the bar or the toilet was an effort. I think there should be a quota of how many people should be allowed in at any one time. Other than that, it was a great night, as always. visited Piano Kensington on 21 Jan 2017

this is a really nice piano bar on Kensington High Street opposite the station. On our last visit early January we arrived at about 6.15 pm and live piano music was being played, lovely music and friendly atmosphere. You can have wines and spirits, I like it because they serve champagne in small bottles with your own ice bucket - the service is first rate, friendly but not intrusive. Highly recommend and you can order nibbles to eat too. visited Piano Kensington on 04 Jan 2017

Whilst I've had enjoyable nights here in the past I was a little disappointed this time. You should not call yourself a 'restaurant' when all you really do is finger food for people squished round the smallest table imaginable but claiming it's '5 to a table'. I had booked for 11 people and we were given 2 tables but even after a couple of us couldn't make it due to Illness 2 tables for 9 people was a joke. A shame as the piano players were excellent. visited Piano Kensington on 17 Dec 2016

This is not a place for dinner and we should have been advised as such. Food we had was good, and experience was OK until about 7pm but then it was far too crowded with people clustered around our table and knocking into it constantly whilsrt we tried to eat! This also meant that the waiters stopped circulating so no more drinks/we had to go to the bar to get the bill visited Piano Kensington on 06 Dec 2016

We really enjoyed our night at Piano Kensington because the food was delicious and the music was very good. It was also a good party atmosphere. The only down side was that people stood over us around our table all night as it is so small in there and we had a couple of drinks knocked over from people squeezing by and knocking repeatedly into our table. I had a full drink knocked on to me at one point so we decided to leave after that. visited Piano Kensington on 25 Nov 2016

After reading reviews of Piano Kensington I made a reservation for a group of 11 for a retirement party. I asked when making the reservation if it was possible to have dinner and would there be any issue with 11 people. I was told that the table easily fit 10 and we could squeeze one in at the end. We ended up being 9 people and when we arrived we had no place to stand or sit and had to wait while they asked people to leave our 'table'. We were then pushed through a crowd to a bench. In front of it was two very small circular (and dirty) tables. There were two stools. The bench was not even big enough for 5 people to sit, we could not sit around a table and there was no way that drinks and food would fit on the two tiny tables for 9 people. The place is very small. There was a crowd of people standing up between our table and the piano players so we never once even saw the entertainment. We could only hear it and it was so loud that we were shouting to each other. As we could not fit at our reserved 'table', could not enjoy the entertainment, would not have been able to eat, we left. Luckily, I was able to quickly find another restaurant close by that could get us in on short notice so that the night was not ruined. Be warned! This is a place you go late at night to maybe dance and drink in a crowded tiny room, but certainly don't bother organizing a party type of event or dinner. visited Piano Kensington on 12 Nov 2016

Although the food was average - which didn't matter to me too much as I was more interested in your cocktail selection - an excellent evening was had. I'd love to be able to provide further feedback for you, but quite frankly i don't remember much other than the pianist was a true crowd pleaser - as was my guest, you may have noticed on the night. We will be returning in December for more merriment. Matt visited Piano Kensington on 02 Sep 2016

Went for my best friend's birthday. We had a night to remember thanks to The Piano Bar! The food and cocktails were EXCELLENT! Not ridiculously over-priced, or too stingy on the chips, and the staff could not have been more efficient or attentive. The piano man played some fabulous classics, which we could not help but get up and dance to. A chilled, classy night out with as much excitement and buzz as you want to create! Every staff member knows their stuff, and they genuinely want you to have a great evening. Thank you Piano Bar and Tom - the best bar tender in London!! I would highly recommend this quirky hide away... (make sure you book a table in advance if you want a seat.) X

The best fun. Had such a mad night here with friends. The only negative is that my legs throbbed from dancing and my voice disappeared from singing. The Bellinis are very good as well ( a little too good in fact !!) Lamby visited Piano Kensington on 20 Dec 2014

Fantastic fun evening. Great atmosphere and the pianist Nick was truly amazing. He ended up getting everyone singing and dancing along to a very well chosen set list. Highly recommended. loopylou visited Piano Kensington on 07 Oct 2015

After being invited to come down by the very talented Matt Ganim (Piano Man), we made it a girls night out. Despite being faced with a double-sided list of songs from the girls, Matt made us all feel very welcome, we were throughly entertained and had a great night!

Recently held a work’s cocktail night at Piano in Kensington and have to say it was a truly fantastic evening! The bar staff were lovely and very accommodating, we had 2 piano players who were both very entertaining (!), lots of drinking, dancing and great location! Would definitely recommend :-) 

Loved it. First visit, would love to return. Great atmosphere, very, very friendly people. We went on a Sunday and the snack menu exactly what we wanted, with great music.

This venue is sensational! Fun and relaxed with great music, talented entertainers and the best truffle fries in London :) It gets a bit crowded later in the night which makes it very hard to move, but if you have a table you're fine. I have been here several times, most recently with 14 international guests, all of whom are raving about how enjoyable it was...

I last went to Piano almost 4 years ago and always loved going. When I decided to celebrate my birthday there this year, it failed to disappoint. Everyone commented on how much fun they had. Music was great, crowd was a lot of fun and the drinks were flowing. Only slight criticism was that table service was a bit slow at the beginning of the night. Also it would have been good to have had more food platters on the menu for sharing. But I still give it 5 stars because it remains my all-time fave place on a Friday night.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Only *slight* complaint was that the pianist didn't play Uptown Funk... hardly a big deal! Loved everything. Thanks so much for having us! Lots of friends will be coming back for sure

Lovely intimate atmosphere. Not too loud. Romantic but not OTT. Easy access to the tube also and v convenient location. Will Definteky return for a date night although I reckon it would be good for private hire also.

Very nice venue with good food and even better entertainment. Brilliant Jazz trio - Paul French and his band gave us a great evening with superb musicianship, Would definitely go again.

Brilliant Sunday evening jazz night. The service from friendly staff and great musicians who knew how to entertain made this a special night out for my wife and I. We want to come back again soon.

In short: No attention to the customer, crowded, pianaomusic was (due to the crowd) poor. If you look for a nice and cosy place don't go here. The amount of public allowed couses a very loud crowd, where even talking to your own partner or collegue is almost impossible. We left after 50 minutes and whre glad we where out. A disaster !

Really bad experience, there was nobody to great you or manage the bookings so we had to que for over 10 minutes at the bar just to find out which table had been reserved for us. We arrived at 7:20pm to find the venue completely over crowded as it had also been booked for a private function. The volume was so loud we couldn't even hear each other talk. During the early stages of the night we don't think it was unreasonable to expect to be able to have a quiet conversation over food rather than having to shout at each other whilst being continuously knocked into as the private function kept spilling in to our table. We ended up having to leave after 40 minutes, it was a really disappointing experience and embarrassing as we had asked friends to travel to join us.

Had a great night , food was tasty, the atmosphere was brilliant and the pianists just got everyone singing and dancing. Eric is a remarkable host and remembers names even after 2 years. would recommend this to anyone looking for a good night out.

Awesome as usual and as expected. Took my girlfriend there on Thursday night (the night we got together a year and a half ago) - the live piano music was exhilarating and set the great atmosphere and energy all around the place. By far, my favourite bottle of wine (which i only find at piano) served by the nicest and friendliest staff.

Never never have I failed to have a good night here at Piano bar. Arrive before 9pm or expect to queue, once inside its brimming, if you dont like tight spaces and being pushed past then this bar is not for you, but if you can get over that then you will never stop singing or smiling! The guy on the piano plays covers of all the best pop and sing-a-long tracks, every gets up and dances along, one of the best party bars in London for me. Just needs to be a bit bigger!
