We tried out the Hoxton Grill during our stay at the attached hotel, and we were really pleased we stopped in. The restaurant shares the off-beat, hip feel that the Hoxton Hotel pulls off so well, with two distinct areas - an 'outdoor' area with a retractable roof which opens to let the sunshine in, and a more traditional 'grill' area with booths, tables and beautiful red leather seating.

Seated in the latter, we were soon attended to by efficient, polite and attentive staff who couldn't do enough to help. The menu is brief but focused on good quality, well cooked grill style fare. The kitchen is open, and it's possible to watch the chefs at work preparing food - so it's clear that this is freshly cooked to order. Steak lovers are very well catered for, with an excellent range of meats - my wife selected a sirloin which was prepared exactly as requested, tasted wonderful and was soft and buttery. I opted for the whole bream with rosemary, which was presented beautifully and cooked to perfection. Our side order of jersey royal potatoes tasted wonderful too - strange to say perhaps, but it's so rare that you can actually taste potatoes in restaurants these days, where often bland, flavourless varieties dominate.

The wine list is extensive, and not exactly cheap - but we found a reasonably priced bottle of unoaked Chardonnay which was very good indeed. The supply of bottled water is also plentiful, and when we'd finished our main course a desert menu was swiftly offered. I wasn't going to indulge on this occasion, but the idea of Peanut Butter filled Choux Buns was too much to resist.

This is a busy, buzzy spot which completely lives up to the spirit and hype of the adjoining hotel - but the cleverly designed interior means it retains an intimate feel too. We had a great meal, loved the experience and couldn't fault the food or the service at all.

Went for dinner on a Friday night and breakfast on Saturday morning (stayed in the hotel). Friday night - very busy, buzzy, noisy - noise meant it was a party atmosphere not a conversational or romantic atmosphere, but because of the noise, as a group you wouldn't be able to talk to most of your party (just whoever was next to you). Somewhat boring semi-American themed menu, although there were a few vegetarian options and they were really nice. Wait staff were very good both for dinner and breakfast (full veggie English was excellent). This is a very trendy hotel/bar/restaurant.

Came in after a long day of traveling and the food was incredible. The burger had a seasoned bun and the cheese was mixed with jalapeños which made for a nice flavor. The apple slaw atop the pulled pork sandwich completed this flavorful, yet messy meal. We finished up dinner with key lime pie and a to die for milkshake. Service was top notch!

The restaurant is in the Hoxton hotel which by any measure if uber-cool. We were there for a client business lunch. All the food was pretty good; grilled salmon, burgers and coffee. However the service was teetering between profunctory and rude. The waitress made no attempt at small talk when we arrived or asking how we were. She did not have the skill to ask whether we were ready to order but barged in, interrupting a conversaton, a couple of times. It was not like the restaurant was busy, possibly 1/4 full. Pretty disappointing & a big miss for the restaurant in a really excellent hotel.
