In St Albans buying a bed and making a spontaneous decision to have a late lunch with Lussmans just around the corner. We weren't disappointed. This is a stylish modern restaurant with a brasserie style menu that inclines towards fish. It was a Friday with fish and chips the special. I had them despite always feeling there are limited things... More

Service was reasonably good when they were empty but got steadily worse as they got busy. Communication about seating mistakes was poor. Having to practically beg to let elderly or disabled people use the level locked level access door is poor at best and bordering on discriminatory. Food generally good.

12 of us enjoyed a birthday meal here, everyone really enjoyed the food. Nice friendly service. Slightly limited menu choices would have liked a bit more variety.

To celebrate my sons birthday we dined at Lussmanns St Albans, this was his choice as we have been there numerous times and always had excellent service and great food.

We were fortunate to be able to get a reservation here at very short notice - it is a busy restaurant so bookings are advisable. Good location in the centre of time very near to the cathedral. Public car park available a few minutes walk away. We had the set menu lunch - this was reasonable value. The desserts were... More

Glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your meal during the festive period. Unfortunately, on the odd occasion, we can get a steak delivered that is tougher than it should be. Please be sure to tell a member of staff who will happily replace. I do hope we can look after you again. Best wishes, Andrei Lussmann (andrei@lussmanns.com) More

My wife and I visited on a Wednesday evening based on the positive reviews of others on TripAdvisor. We live local and this was our first visit. The venue is stylish and has a relaxed and modern feel to it. The restaurant was fully booked and there were a couple of large groups situated on the top and bottom floors... More
