Having made a reservation online, I was not acknowledged for nearly five minutes when I arrived. As it was half term, the restaurant was rather noisy with families with poorly supervised children. One child persisted on banging cutlery on the table behind me. I was also surprised that two children were not told to fold their scooters before entering the... More

Words fail me I'm trying to describe the complete ineptitude of this place! My daughter booked a table for 20 ( my granddaughters 6th birthday meal with her friends and their parents). Arrived on time 5pm and need to be at the Theatre at 6.45pm Hey we got our food at 6.25!!!! We had to cancel the desserts, rush the... More

Went here on a Sunday night, told there was a 30 wait for food, fair enough our decision to stay and eat, bad call. When our pizzas eventually arrived they were over cooked and going cold, been left on the pass too long. Would have made a fuss but with the in-laws and they don't like a scene. Tables around...

Waitress wasn't friendly at all. After ordering my pizza, it came without mushrooms so she took it back. Waited while my two companions ate and then the starter arrived. When asking why it's taking so long she explained that the Christmas parties (two large groups behind us) have pre-booked so it'll take long for our food to arrive. Finally got... More

Let me start by saying I haven't had a pizza express in a while but based on the memory of the Muswell hill branch and the Stratford Westfield branch I thought it would be fantastic. Boy was I wrong! Lets start at the beginning, myself and two friends arrived at the restaurant we were ignored. Not sure if we should... More

I am a big fan of Pizza Express, but certainly NOT this one. From the moment we entered, we were made to feel UNWELCOME. We asked for a table outside, the manager said there wasn't a table outside free. I pointed to the table for three (we were three people) directly in front of her... She wouldn’t win awards for...

Popped in because we have found an £5 offer.. Offer itself it's not bad but the customer service and atmosphere inside it's terrible. No smile or positive vibe whatsoever.. Waiters faces saying more than enough.. Looked like the've been forced to do any job. Manager lady wasn't even available. Chatting to chefs without any knowledge what is going on in... More

Monday 18th I was invited to a close friend of the family's birthday dinner at pizza express. Firstly the atmosphere created by the staff wasn't very friendly or welcoming. We were waiting for a couple guests to come before we ordered, it wasn't that busy so I was a little confused as to why we were made to feel like... More

After a really busy day we went for a relaxing meal with family and friends. The service was very friendly, if slightly disorganised, and the food was good. A range of shared starters (the doughballs were the highlight) and a very tasty pizza washed down by a chilled Peroni. A good meal with good company - even better as someone... More
