Every time I go to the Waitrose Steak and Oyster bar, the quality of the food is 100%. I don't eat steak or oysters, so I always opt for the 'Fish of the day'. The food is simple and freshly prepared in front of your eyes. The atmosphere is calm and the service is always good. Typical of Waitrose in... More

Came here today for lunch. Steaks and seafood were perfect, we liked everything. In the beginning we got embarrassed with location in supermarket, but as recommendations in TripAdvisor were good we have decided to stay. So for sure we'll be back soon

OK, so you wouldn't take your wife here for a romantic dinner, but for an informal dinner with a couple of friends or a non-special couples dinner you can't beat it - I have even heard of clients being taken to dinner here. I am particularly fussy about my steak and every time, without fail, my black and blue fillet... More

Placed an order which was just left on the side & forgotten about . Ridiculous given the fact there were only 4 customers at the time .

Great steak and burger, but constantly disturbed on the high stools by clueless shoppers jamming their trolleys into the backrests. That branch truly has a different breed of customer - and that's not a positive. Staff were very pleasant and professional and credit to them for keeping their composure in the face of numerous rude diners.

This is the best for value and quality in Canary Wharf. Unfortunately you are in a shop so no atmosphere. But you cant beat the food

This is a great place, surprisingly at the rear of Waitrose , Canary Wharf. It has always been good, with a good choice of food, if they run out of something, off they go to the shop floor and grab some more! This is food you could do at home, but never to the same quality. We were there last... More

In search for a good quick steak at Canary Wharf I discovered this place on TripAdvisor. I feel sorry for the previous reviewers who rave about the steak here - obviously they haven't sampled truly good steak before. The ribeye was ok. Very small, but we'll cooked. Meat passable quality (only just). The oysters were fresh but fairly tasteless. Service... More

Utterly unpretentious counter at back of Canary Wharf Waitrose but I challenge anyone to find a better steak, fries and salad anywhere on the Wharf. If u can find it, I'll buy it for you. But you won't. This Waitrose steak was generously thick cut, succulent, full of flavour. But tender. Chips satisfyingly chunky. Salad so fresh it could have... More

Just discovered this place after work. It is kind hide at the back of the supermarket. Not many counter seats so get there early! The menu is quite simple - have oyster, all kinds grilled fish, mixed fish platter, steak etc. Try 6 oyster for £8.75 - such a bargain! All bubbles start at amazing £3.95! Definitely a great place...
