My bf and i walked in to have a couple appetizers and drinks. we had the most amazing bit sized nibbles and they were absolutely mouth-watering. The manager served us and had so much detail about the wine we were drinking. He was amazing. i will definitely be returning.

Maître d’“Basil Fawlty”’ forgot to order half of our meal and seem surprised when we weren’t happy to pay for those items which had arrived. A long argument with the owner ensued. At one point the owner threatened the phone the police. Other superior Basque / Spanish is available in the local area at a better price and service quality for a similar food quality.

Restaurant forgot to provide side dishes in our order, so provided cooked beef and nothing else (i.e half of a meal). We waited a log time for more food. Then the manager argued with us over the bill. This was disappointing as the price point is high and we were a large group willing to pay top dollar (including a large wine order).

Poor service and poor attitude from staff including the manager.

Would not return.

Would advise others to try different Spanish restaurants in London, such as Drake’s Tabanco (which is utterly superb in food and service). This restaurant should NOT be doing business in London.

We always appreciate feedback from our customers so thank you for taking the time to write your review.

While we pride ourselves on attaining the highest possible standards in both our cuisine and service we understand that it is not possible to meet everyone’s expectations.

We apologise for the miscommunication between our waiter and your group regarding the 2 side dishes that you had ordered for the table. As a gesture of good will, the manager kindly offered complimentary dessert for the confusion but as you preferred a discounted bill, this was agreed.

After processing 25% off your final bill for the 2 missing side dishes, the discounted bill was only part-paid and left with an outstanding amount of £89+. After the manager gently brought this to your attention, you initially refused to pay whilst sadly explaining the negative reviews we would receive. We are pleased however that this was settled and resolved before departure.

We are always concerned when our customers are not entirely satisfied as every table is important to us at Sagardi. We catered for 90+ guests on Saturday evening and I am pleased to say we did not receive a single other complaint regarding our service or communication.

It’s clear however that you were disappointed and as we do not want this to be anyone´s memory of Sagardi, please feel free to contact us if you would like to enjoy a more positive experience.

The food was good...but sadly the service is woefully bad. Half the meal came and the manager had the nerve to argue that we had eaten some of it so should pay... I wouldn’t go back. Very poor.
