“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

We were a table of 11 booked on a Saturday night before Christmas and I'm afraid it was not a good experience. After fairly decent starters the steaks themselves were a real let down. Only two of the 3 of the 11 of us got a decent steak (those who chose fillet or sirloin), everyone else's was chewy and though. The accompanying sauces were not good either, especially the green peppercorn sauce which tasted like chip shop curry sauce. When I pointed this out to the manageress she 'proved' it didn't by tasting it herself and saying "see?". The service was lacklustre at best. I asked for a chiller for the white wine to go woth pur starters - which had been put down on the table WITH IT'S SCREW TOP ON - and was told one was coming but it never materialised, there was no check back to see if everything was OK but worst of all, and this is just unforgiveable considering the Bountiful Cow charges high-end steak house prices - the meals all came with freezer chips. I don't know if there are different staff on at weekends to the ones who have merited all the previous good reviews here but frankly, they did not know what they were doing at all.

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

Been a few times now and this is definitely a top spot for a top steak in London. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed making it perfect for any situation. I've felt comfortable whilst entertaining clients and also able to really unwind with family and friends. Service has been impeccable each and every time - very attentive to our needs. Comfortable, clean and love the sparkly bountiful cow light :) Whilst the steak is great, it's well worth trying my favourite tasty prawns - go for it!
