Smollensky's Canary Wharf - London Restaurant Bar Review

More fool me for thinking that a Saturday night in Canary Wharf would be a ghost-town. The super sleek, modern business complex found on the Jubilee Line was buzzing on my visit at the weekend, and how could I ever have been surprised when...

Staff and food great. Only one disappointment, and it's the same one I had an issue with before with your Canary Wharf restaurant, your disabled toilet was AGAIN out or order. My sister has emphysema Breathing disorder and found the stairs an issue. Unfortunately the disabled toilet is always full of stuff that should be in a storage cupboard. It's such bad management not having the disabled facility available and I'm sure health and safety would have an issue with it too. So only 3 stars !! visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 24 Jun 2017

Great service and a great burger. I'm sure we will go again but I was very disappointed in the starter. I have to be gluten free and the only choice was chicken skewers without sauce which were dry and uninteresting. Surely there are lots of other possibilities!

Customer service could have been better & there were long waits between courses despite the restaurant having few diners. Being a frequent diner in the Canary Wharf area, there needs to be a lot of improvements to be bench marked with some of the other nearby restaurants.. visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 31 May 2017

There were several things on the Menu that my guests requested which were not available, this included Salmon, banoffee pie and ribs. In addition I had steak that was inedible and rubbery, some portions were frankly small - notably the Chicken Skewers and there was no beer on tap, only bottles. The menu itself was very limited. I had a great memory of Smolleskys from the past but this was a disappointment, I felt I let my guests down. We will not be returning sadly. visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 09 May 2017

Food was OK, but not as good as I thought it ought to have been given the concentration on quality that the very limited menu should allow. Tempura battered fish had what seemed to be ordinary batter, with a layer of uncooked white sludge on the inside: not at all how I think of tempura. Worst thing was the receptionist's incredibly noisy heels. Every time a customer arrived she walked across yards of marble and then yards of wood floor to show them to their table, and back again, every step sounding out like a pistol shot or a hammer blow. All the waiting staff wore soft and noiseless footwear; she apparently always wears noisy shoes. Really annoying, whether you're having a conversation or just quietly eating, to suffer 60-80 BANGs! as she walks between table and reception desk. Ludicrously inconsiderate. It's hard to believe that she isn't aware of it, and astonishing that management haven't noticed and addressed it. visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 24 Apr 2017

I made an on-line reservation for 11am on Sunday (yesterday) and when I arrived at 11am was told the kitchen wasnt open until 12pm and you also didnt have a license to serve drink until 12pm so felt completely let down. The reason I booked for 11am as we were going to the cup final and needed to leave by 1pm. I was very let down and we had to find somewhere else. You should have informed me of this when you accepted my 11am reservation. Very poor! visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 23 Apr 2017

We booked a table for our team lunch. It was our first time as a group in Smollenskys and we would definitely book again. The ribs were great with a wonderful marinade. Falafel burger, calamari and chicken salad looked amazing. It was my birthday so we were given a free bottle of prosecco nicely chilled! Great atmosphere and finally but not least our waitress took extra pains to make sure we had a great time. visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 18 Apr 2017

We arrived 45mins before our booking as we were finished what we had done earlier than we expected. Despite this our table was ready and we were able to eat then. The staff were friendly and polite and very efficient. There was a large party in the restaurant but this did not affect the service at all. We asked about allergy information and the staff knew which items had nuts in and also said that one or two could be done without the sauce so we could eat them. Overall we had a great meal the food was amazing and came out lovely and hot. We didn't have a long wait even though it was very busy in there. We will definitely be visiting again. visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 25 Feb 2017

The restaurant itself was very well looked after, clean, tidy and well kept. The food itself was very appealing and tasted amazing, however, it was slightly overpriced for what is was, but I was happy to pay because was beautiful. Staff was not very attentive to the customer's needs and customer service was not at all what I expected from a supposedly high-class restaurant. Our waiter did nothing exceptional to deserve an automatic 12.5% tip from the bill so when we had politely requested for it to be removed (we are students on minimum wage jobs and cannot afford to be tipping that excessively) the waiter questioned us why in a very belittling manner. Not the service I was expecting. 3/5 stars mostly for the food but otherwise possibly one of the worst meals out I've had. I doubt I will be returning at all. One of the ladies however on the front desk who took us to our table was very welcoming but other than that, staff was not up to scratch. visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 17 Feb 2017

We were a group of 11 and arrived first on that day. 7 meals were brought out together. We had to wait for the next 2, then further wait for the next 1, then there was a further delay for the last 1. By this time everyone else was halfway through theirs (they had to start as the meals were getting cold) When I mentioned to the waitress, she just said it was busy. Surely you are used to serving large groups? I would not book again or recommend for a group. visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 09 Feb 2017

Hello, To be honest I was very disappointed with my experience at Smollensky's in Canary Wharf last night. Firstly, when we arrived we were sat at a very wobbly table and although one of the waiters did have a look at this, the issue was unresolved. I could have understood this if all the other tables were booked for the whole evening but there were actually several other free tables around us for the majority of the evening. Secondly, I had ordered the duck from the three course Valentine's menu, which was one of the reasons I booked this package as that is a favourite dish of mine. I was then told that there had been an error in the kitchen and this was now unavailable. I was offered the menu to choose again but I was disappointed not to get the main dish I had chosen, particularly as I had taken the time to order this in advance. It's also worth noting that the spreadsheet order form I was sent to do this had other tabs to different menus which could be confusing to some people. I felt the food was mediocre at best and both my partner and I noted the steaks were a bit stringy. It was also not particularly hot when it arrived. We waited a very long time for our cheese board, which seemed odd as it was a very simple dish to put together and I wouldn't say that warranted a 25 minute wait, not least because the restaurant was particularly quiet by this point. It took my partner a long time to get the attention of anyone for us to pay as well and additionally we weren't asked whether we had enjoyed our meal at this point which I felt was an oversight. I paid close to £100 for what I consider to have been one of my poorer restaurant experiences. As a local in the area, I was hoping that the experience would lead to regular visits. However, based on last night, we won't be returning again. Many Thanks, Claire Kenning visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 14 Feb 2017

We enjoyed a lovely Valentines evening meal! We both had mains and desserts and were thoroughly impressed. The staff were friendly and relaxed and made you feel at ease. We were not rushed through the evening and we really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere. The food was of a good standard (the first time I have ever finished a whole burger!) so was very impressed and the Mississippi Mud Pie was AMAZING! Will definitely go back soon :) visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 14 Feb 2017

Thought the heaters and lights would make the outside space warmer but it was definitely too cold for an outside event. Everyone enjoyed food and service was very good. Thanks for having us! visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 08 Feb 2017

We were a table of 7 and have no criticisms at all, staff were attentative, service was great and food was really good! Shame we were too full for puddings as they looked pretty impressive! Would definately return if in Canary Wharf again and will certainly visit the Strand restaurant when I'm back in London next month! visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 09 Feb 2017

We were a party of 12 and the staff really looked after us, the food was great and we got a great deal on price as we had a birthday in our party. it's very quiet compared with the busy bar next door, I'd suggest they merge the two to create more of a buzzing atmosphere visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 03 Feb 2017

Thank you for requesting my feedback as due to pressure of time I did not say anything on the day. The wait to take my order was unacceptable particularly as I was the first person to arrive for lunch. Having ordered the the wait for my starter (beef carpaccio) was also unacceptable. When I was then approached by the bearded gentleman he informed me it was not available. I was asked what I would like instead so chose the goats cheese tartlet only to be told that was unavailable too. At this point I suggested it might be an idea to tell me what was available rather than continuing to ask me what I wanted and then telling me it wasn't available. I was advised only two of the eight (possibly six) starters were available which suggests woeful levels of organization so all in all very frustrating. It would have been much better if the waitress who gave me the menu had told me what was unavailable at the start. In the end I chose satay chicken skewers which were only luke warm, dry and tasteless with no quality in the satay sauce at all. The side order of green salad lacked any imagination. The Eton mess was delicious. I liked the decor and staff were generally friendly but I am afraid this did not make up for the problems with the availability and quality of the starter and slow service. visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 31 Jan 2017

Ordered and then was told what was ordered wasn't in stock, which for a Friday evening shouldn't be the case. Service was ok with one good waitress other wasn't very professional or well presented. Food was nice. Shocking compared to central London smollenskys visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 27 Jan 2017

We had reservations, were seated right away. Friendly waitress, and nice atmosphere. The food was tasty and well presented. The steak and mashed potatoes were a hit one of my boys the other boy had steak frites also good and tasty. I had the fish and chips which were very well done, and the husband had steak frites as well. Beverages were good! No complaints. visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 21 Jan 2017

Hi. our booking and slight time change request was handled efficiently. Unfortunately, all those who requested the asparagus starter received cold eggs and asparagus. The waiter did offer to replace them but we asked for bread for the table instead. On the other hand, all of the steaks were cooked to perfection. many thanks visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 17 Jan 2017

Extremely thankful that we booked with Smollensky's for our Christmas Dinner. From the minute we contacted the team, we were provided with excellent customer support and attention. On the evening, the service was faultless and we all enjoyed a fantastic night that flowed well with our team.

Some of the most gorgeous food we have ever tasted! I can safely say it was the best sea bass I have ever tasted, on a bed of the lightest creamiest mashed potato! My partners steak was out of this world with the black and blue sauce. The staff were very welcoming and always smiled. We will 100% be returning!!!! visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 31 Dec 2016

My friend wanted to take me out and asked where I wanted to go so I suggested Smollenskys because after the first time I came here I loved the BBQ ribs rack and wanted to have it again but when I came around 6 I was told they were finished and they weren't making anymore, so I had to be stuck with a burger visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 22 Dec 2016

Hi I have sent the email below directly to the restaurant : - Hi Maria, We would just like to say what a wonderful host we had in Anna, she was warm and welcoming, and very attentive. I don’t often feel the need to write to a restaurant to congratulate them on their staff however she is a great ambassador for your brand and an asset to your team. Dealing with a table of 17 and ensuring that all the requests are met is not always easy however she managed it smoothly and we were all singing her praises this morning. Please would you forward our thanks to Anna and ensure that the management team are notified of how happy we were with her hosting Just on her hospitality alone we will definitely be coming back! visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 22 Dec 2016

However, the team were marvellous, clearing the tables, offering more drinks and even asked if we wanted a short break between the main meal and the dessert.

Hello We attended on 8 December 2016 and were a party of 57 for our Christmas Party. I arrived at the venue and it was clear that there were numerous parties going on as well as ours. The venue was extremely busy which was to be expected for the time of year but I would have expected a few more members of staff to cater for everyone's needs. The food on a whole was good however there was well over an hour's wait in between the starter and main course. This didn't go down well and never a good idea when people are drinking alcohol as well. As I said, I appreciate that we were a large party and the venue was packed but I would expect a venue in canary wharf to cater for their customers and make sure they have enough staff to deal with the amount of bookings they took. Also, the staff wouldn't let us go to the bar to purchase drinks and stated we weren't allowed more than four tabs. I don't understand why this was the case or what problems it would have caused the venue by having a few more tabs. I have also been advised that people were charged for drinks that had already been paid for at the bar when it had taken so long to sort out how drinks were going to be ordered. Lastly, as the outside area was reserved, we only had a very small walk through for people to go outside and smoke which appeared to upset the door staff somewhat. As I am sure you can appreciate, people wanted to stand and talk together but there was no where really to do this. I organise the work Christmas party every year but was disappointed overall. I don't think this is a reflection of the staff or the venue who all appeared to be working extremely hard, there just needed to be a few more people working and a little more planning in how the events were going to go. visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 08 Dec 2016

I was very happy with the approach of the restaurant. The team I organized the logistics with was really great - Zita, Maria. I really appreciate their flexibility and approach to me. We were nicely welcomed upon our arrival and well looked after by the whole operations team too, you have very positive and smiley team. The only thing I would like to point out is long waiting time in between each course but for sure I understand that it is not easy to serve 60 people in once. The food was tastefull and I think the whole group enjoyed as well. I will share the outcome with you once I receive their feedback. For sure we would like to use your restaurant again in 2017. A big thanks to the whole Smollenkys team, Happy Christmas and all the Best in 2017!. Veronika visited Smollensky's Canary Wharf Restaurant on 07 Dec 2016
