Wagyu beef steak, topped with prawns. Cooked medium (could have gone medium-rare). Perfect.
4 stars because the other steak wasn't as good.
Food and service was awesome. Decor great. Seemed a bit overpriced but didn't detract from the overall enjoyment.
If you want North American Black Angus in London, this is the place to go!
Yum. I have never been able to eat a halal steak of this caliber anywhere else in the world, so I was pretty blown away. Wagyu beef? Whaaat. All I can say is listening to opera makes cows delicious! Yum! I also loved the Boerewo (African beef sausage with a tomato-based sauce and polenta). The ambience was also quite nice. I will go back to London in a heartbeat just to eat a halal cow that listens to opera. Or whatever it is that makes wagyu wagyu.
We visited Meat and Wine in White City shopping centre as the name appealled to us, we love steak and wine so why not?
sadly we found the overall experience disappointing, the ambience was very muted and service wasnt attentive at all.
The wine was mediocre and there was no advice in this area the name however would suggest the matching of wine to the meal would be an area of speciality.
The meat was dry and chewy and my prawn and steak kebab was quite vulgar as it was so large it was taller than me and it all felt a little tacy and over the top, i would have prepared quality over quantity.
The vaue for money was not great either due to all of the above points, such a shame as the concept has such potential.
The food was atrocious. I got the cheeseburger, "medium", which was so tough that I was able to push on it quite hard with my finger without breaking the surface. Meanwhile, the "onion rings" were more like fried batter strips, without anything to really identify them as onions ("oh look, a bit of red!"). My companions got steaks that they thought were awful, though they assured me that on previous occasions (on all-you-can-eat rib night) the food was better. I'll give it one more shot for the ribs, but I won't be going back otherwise.
To its benefit, the restaurant is a very large, and interestingly decorated space. The toilets are individual rooms that share a massive sink space cunningly hidden behind a massive glass wine rack, which looked like an impressive selection (though my teetotaller status means I cannot comment on its quality).
I was walking through westfield mall trying to decide on a place to eat. Just as my friend and I were about to give up we stumbled upon The meat & wine Co. We were VERY surprised to learn that they offer a full halal menu! This is a big deal considering the name alone, but they offered background info on how they've paired up with The Meat Co, Middle East/Africa, to offer a Halal selection.
We were seated upstairs promptly. Atmosphere was beautiful and chic. Service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive and kind. To start we ordered the bruschetta which was delicious! For my main course I ordered a 200gm filet and it was cooked exactly to my liking. I ordered a side of peppercorn sauce which was out of this world. The steak itself was robust! I can't stop raving about how great this experience was, especially for a halal steakhouse.
If you are on a halal diet I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.
A lovely restaurant and something that adds glamour to the Souther Terrace Restaurants in Westfield.
Went with a friend for Sunday afternoon get your belly full meal and pleased that this place did not disappoint.
As soon as you enter there is a larger than life bar. I did not get the chance to try the cocktails as I wanted my MEAT.
Had a beer and ordered the RIBS and being a RIB CONNOISSEUR around London I have found the place that does the best RIBS in London. The Beef Ribs were to die for. The meat was falling of the bone, tender and full of flavour. They had been so slow cooked and was chewing on the bone.
I had the Vodka and Blue Cheese Dressing that was strong. Perfect.
My friend had the Waygu Beef Burger which he ate without talking to me. Watching him eat and stay quiet was hilarious as he was clearly enjoying it.
The service was good and the staff did explain the dishes very well and did not disappoint with their choices and had them spot on. I advised that I thought I knew RIBS and clearly did not till I visited here.
If you love your meat and wine the the name of the restaurant clearly explains itself.
You can chill and watch the latest London craze of Westfield buzz around you.
The meat choice were very good and different cuts of Beef were on offer. Chicken, Ribs, Fish and a Daily Changed Veggie option is also available.
Money well spent.
I am celebrating my birthday here next week with 20 other foodies and will be interested in their opinions.
Now I am looking forward to my birthday :-)
Firstly a great looking place wherever your sat! Very helpful staff who are keen to explain the menu if required.
Starter was great although more like a main course and steak for the main was one of the nicest I've ever had. Sadly no room for desert!
Ok - a work dinner, a client taking myself and 4 colleagues out. Drinks in the downstairs bar area were brought to us by friendly good looking staff. A selection of African and European beers on offer were interesting with decor a cosy orange glow. very warm and welcoming start.
Led up to a private room for our main meal.
My calamari starter was reminiscent of onion rings, that's not a problem i quite like onion ring, served with a small amount of leaves and a simple dressing. Next up the star of the set menu - the SUPER AGED Australian Steak and Chips. My Steak was a well seasoned gristle & fat ridden spaniels ear with a side of chips. Our wine was average and i was not provided with a glass having to ask for one 3 times and waiting 25 minutes to receive one.
I wouldn't go back here. the food was average. the staff were obviously busy with other people.
Not usually into eating in Shopping Centers, but this place was recommended by a nearby Hotel Concierge as a good place for a steak and he was not wrong. Has a sidewalk patio for people watching, but if you go upstairs it also has a nice outside balcony overlooking the walkway below also for people watching.
Tried Kangaroo steak which was very nice and different. Good service with wine by the glass.
I recently had to meet with a potential client based in Shepherd's Bush and she suggested we go here. It was particularly convenient for me coming from the Tube and would make an ideal pit stop for shopping expeditions to Westfield. I can't comment on the menu as I only had a Diet Coke but it looked worth trying (with a bit of a South African and Moroccan slant as far as I could tell). As the name makes clear, this isn't an ideal destination for vegetarians but they still will find decent options. What I really liked about this place was the spacious outdoor seating. It was an ideal setting for my meeting, and I'll be sure to keep it in mind for future occasions.
Went with a group of 8, and was a lovely experience. Bar downstairs is inviting, and table was well set. Very nice selection of wines to choose from - we had 3 or 4 bottles by the time it was all said and done. I imagine this helped our service, as our waiter was very attentive to our needs, but I doubt we would have had the same service if we would have been splitting a side salad and water. Starters were nice if a bit small, and everyone enjoyed their main course (the ribs were very nice), and the dessert sampler was especially delightful.
I came here for my 24th Birthday last year.
Although that day was quite frankly a disappointment the food and drink served was fantastic. I will say it is on the pricey side of things but then good meat and wine will never be cheap (and if you do know where it is both good and cheap - let me know!)
I totally recommend this for groups, the service is good and the staff are very knowledgeable. It would be a great place for celebratory occasions!
I had the misfortune to chance upon this eatery at the Westfield shopping centre last Friday evening. From the outside it looked promising, but as the old adage goes, never just a restaurant by its snazzy decor. We were lead upstairs to our table to check out the menu, and at a first glance it was clear this was an expensive joint. So expensive in fact that I held back on ordering a cocktail. This is essentially a steak restaurant, selling top quality meat at eye watering prices. Some of the steaks were £50 each (even more expensive than Gaucho!). We ordered chicken wings to share as a starter and some new york strips with chips for mains. There were only 4 chicken wings in the starter (which cost £9!). The steak was delicious I have to admit, tender juicy and lovely. But that's the only reason I'm giving this place 2 stars. The chips were something I'd expect from an Aberdeen Steakhouse, and the peppercorn sauce tasted revolting. The side of vegetables were as limp as my wrist when I held the bill at the end of the night. We paid £120 for a meal that was just ok when we could have paid half that for something much MUCH better elsewhere. Avoid this place at all costs.
For the first time, I tried Meat & Wine Co and can't believe I haven't been there before. Went with family for a mother's day celebration and we were very well looked after and had the best service and very relaxing time there. We tried a bit of everything steak, ribs, kalahari lamb along with the sides and soup of the day everything was just beautiful and scrumptious. Will definetly be going back there.
I ate here with a friend fully expecting to have a good meal. Instead what we got was that we found our waitress a bit too familiar, too chatty when what we really wanted was a chance to catch up with each other as we don't often get the chance to meet up. Still, that was something we could have overlooked but possibly as a result of her being hell bent on telling us her life story she managed to get our order wrong.
Instead of offering to correct this, (it was I think your mixed starter), and getting us the right food, this was ignored by her when we pointed it out.
From that moment she became decidedly less chatty - she seemed to take particular umbrage with me as she wouldn't even look me in the eye - and the service was to say the least intermittent. When, after we had finished our main course and found ourselves at a table with no food or drink on it for several minutes we took the hint and ended our meal early.
As for the quality of the food, we found the mixed starter to be, well of mixed quality and the main we had was the Springbok. Diners ordering it that like venison will be disappointed.
over all an extremely bad experience and as there are so many restaurants at that location I would strongly suggest you try one of them instead.
I love this place. Great atmosphere, the staff are well knowledgable on the menu and wine list (which is great if you don't know what wine compliments which dish) Some of the dishes are a bit deer but all in all a great restaraunt and am looking forward to returning again very soon indeed!
In view of the fact you are announced to upstairs by radio one would think they would be prepared for you.
(No cutlery when we came to eat.)
When the waiter showed up We gave him an order for Breads and Olives.
He returned to take our drinks order as one of our party were away.
Breads came but no drinks. Eventually they showed up but in the case of two of the drinks they came with ice.
They were taken away and returned minus the ice leaving a watery concoction.
At the time we ordered another bottle of water which took 25 minutes more to materialise, only to have a further bottle arrive 5 minutes after that that we had not ordered.
No condiments offered and my wires order was without the Signature fries.
Waiter finally showed up and asked if all was OK and was told no. Told us He was here for us after returning with wife's fries and then promptly disappeared.
Overall this place has gone downhill since it opened.
Not the best Birthday dinner I have eaten.
Left without desert as all in my party felt deflated.
