Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Maybe we just had a bad experience but we really did not enjoy our meal. My boyfriend ordered the venison which he had to send back due to it being cold and raw in the centre. We understand that rare meat is common in fine...dining, but this was too far. Additionally, we ordered a number of the small plates. We ordered the sardine which came out practically raw. I assumed that this was the intended preparation and declined to eat it as it was not nice, but my boyfriend ate it regardless. He ended up unwell following this and we could not attribute this to anything other than the sardine. Service was excellent and otherwise we enjoyed the meal. However, overall not the best experience.More

Did a walk in on a Sat night and managed to get a cancellation. Very good service and some nice dishes. I would say the best thing is the quality of the ingredients. You can tell they are fresh. Chelsea and her team made us...feel welcome.More

What a find! Went here with a couple of friends and we all admired the food and service. We did a share thing so that we could try a range of dishes. Everything was first class. The prices are good too. Not Chelsea mad. Our...waitress was efficient and unassuming. There when we needed her and not there when we didn’t. Don’t really understand why this place isn’t heaving. If it were my local, I would be here all the time! Highly recommended.More

I've been for a quick lunch a couple of days ago. I definitely recommend the place. The ambience is nice and cosy. I like the decorations and the small open kitchen, where you can see the chef prepare your food. Food wise, the quality is...good, but I wasn't as impressed as I thought. Service fast professional and very nice. It's definitely not my last visit. There are plenty of options to give a try.More

Attended for tasting menu this evening. Had flagged beforehand this was for anniversary but no special mention was made at all. We were on a table so small I (a size 6 woman) could barely squeeze in and out of. It was a bit absurd....The food was good (I wouldn’t go further than that), but it would be stretch to say it was seasonal. We went to the sister restaurant The Shed last June and had *identical* courses. The pudding was the main difference. Service was poor. We went for the wine pairing with the tasting menu but, first, they brought out a pairing after we had finished the course, and then they got the pairing with the wrong course. They came over and explained they would give us a free dessert wine to compensate. We were happy with this. Except they never actually delivered on this promise. The main event took an absurdly long time to come out. 25 minutes is not exactly acceptable for a tasting menu course. No one bothered to apologise for the wait either. We were not offered teas or coffees to finish. Not exactly a memorable experience. We had fond memories of The Shed which is why we chose this for a memorable occasion. Was extremely disappointed to find everything out of balance. We did not pay the service charge because, ultimately, I was embarrassed they had put it on the bill. They were clearly trying to compensate with the offer of an extra glass, but that means nothing when they failure to deliver on it.More

Appalling. I had been to Rabbit twice before (last year) and had a lovely dinner with my partner. Cuisine had been on point - service was good - prices a little steep but - in all - a good experience. Last night, inspired by the...previous times, we had another couple join us. The night couldn't have gone worse. In charge of our table was a girl on her first day as a waitress. We ordered two Cigar Venison as starters for two (£10 each), and obviously were hoping to get back something plentiful. After 45 minutes, a plate arrived with two macaron sized 'cigars'. We looked at each other in disbelief - whas this supposed to be a starter for two? We laughed. They were ok - after 10 minutes, two other of these plates arrived, but then the waitress came back and - all confused - said she had made a mistake and took one away. The embarassement was just starting. We decided to relax and continue our dinner. Our mains were supposedly on the way. In fact, they were one hour away. In the meantime, several requests by us were made but the waiters would completely forget (we asked for a wine list and she never came back to ask us the wine we wanted). When the mains arrived, they arrived all at different times, whilst the two sides of potatoes arrived basically when we had finished the mains. The mains were ok - but the side of brussel sprouts was literally uneatable - something Gordon Ramsey would have quite probably spat out - too much garlic and too much mustard. We then ordered desserts - being the only table left along with another in the restaurant, we would have imagined that we'd get them right away. 20 minutes later, no desserts had come. I went up to the manager, who was probably in his early 20s, he was texting on his phone sitting on a table. I told him about the desserts and the team about the atrocious service - they got defensive. The chocolate cake was also quite terrible. In all, a poor experienced. Understaffed, on the defensive, unattentive. Rabbit, you need to step up!!More

Such a wonderful experience! It’s the cutest little spot with amazing food. The atmosphere is more than cozy! Staff are extremely knowledgeable and cares about your experience. Upon arrival we met the manager who made us feel at home from the moment we walked in....Thank you Tom! The food made by the Chef Domenico was absolutely amazing - every single thing we tried was beautiful. Attention to detail is extraordinary. Choose anything from mushroom eclair, scallops, fish or local meats, you will be surprised! Try their local Sussex wine as well. *Bonus - with an open kitchen where the magic is happening! You will be amazed how much love is put in every plate. ❤️ I wholeheartedly recommend this dining experience, a culinary journey that captivates the senses and surpasses expectations. An absolute must for people who love gooood fooood! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!More

Very disappointing. Tables crammed too close; domed base made ours uncomfortable to sit at. Service slow but friendly and did make attempts to deal with a food intolerance. We ate from the ‘Christmas’ menu: poor value of variable quality. My venison was mainly gristle, as...was the replacement sent when we complained. This didn’t merit any adjustment to the bill however. Wines pleasant but ridiculously expensive. What should have been a lovely evening with our family turned out a great let-down.More

My wife and I went to Rabbit on a Thursday evening without a reservation. We were shown two tables that they could seat us at. The one table was in front of the food preparation area the other table near the bar. We decided to...sit on the side near the bar. The table and the bench seating were the most uncomfortable I have ever sat at in a restaurant. The table was too high and the benches were offset to one another so I could not sit directly across from my wife. Our server was pleasant. She helped us with the menu and wine selection and also addressed my wife’s allergy concerns. I ordered the mushroom marmite éclair, Braised Venison and Brussel Sprouts. My wife ordered the Bread, Venison and Salt Baked Potatoes. We also ordered a carafe of Rabbit Red wine, which was a nice wine. The bread and the mushroom éclair came to the table quickly but we had to ask for the wine about 20 minutes later. The mushroom éclair was a taste treat. We then noticed that our table was next to the dish washer/cleaning station and then listened to the dishwasher. About one hour into not having our meals and our server never checking in on us to see how we were doing. We had to ask about our meal. She told us that she would check but the venison had been a popular order for the night and the kitchen was backed up. Ten minutes later out came the Brussel Sprouts and the Salt potatoes and another ten minutes after that our venison. The venison was cooked rare which was fine but my wife’s venison was actually cold on the inside and not even cooked rare. It was so tough she could not actually eat it. I ate her cold venison. The Brussel Sprouts were not very good and the best part of the meal were the salt potatoes. Go find another place to eat in Chelsea. Rabbit did not deliver a quality dining experience!More
