Description: Located in the heart of Soho, an area which is quickly moving towards fast casual, to visit HIX Soho is to experience true hospitality and the subtle elegance of service-craft. With an unrivalled dedication to seasonality HIX Soho brings fish and shellfish to the forefront, offering a premium seafood experience serving carefully sourced produce from the British Isles. The leather banquettes lend themselves to intimate corner tables for two or larger dining parties of up to 12, a rare find in this part of London. The oak paneled private dining room is the perfect setting for discreet meals and meetings for up to 10. Open all day every day, HIX Soho is the perfect spot for pre-theatre dining. A set menu is also available until 6.30pm every weekday for only £19.50 for 2 courses. Join us for Bottomless Brunch on a Saturday or the best British roast every Sunday. Downstairs is the iconic Mark’s Bar with its apothecary bar and an eccentric seasonal cocktail list. The bar is open from 12noon - 1am for drinks and bar snacks. Mark's bar does not take reservations for drinks as it operates on first in first served basis.

On a day out, our group of 12 had a booking here - on arrival they'd lost our booking and couldn't accommodate immediately, so we had an hour downstairs in the bar until a table could be made available for us.

The bar is (as others have commented) dark and loud - and expensive - and we eventually went upstairs to get dinner.

The wine list was extensive and had a number of very good wines available, but I found the food to be rather average and bland. And when I ordered the breaded spatchcock chicken, it came only with rocket salad and nothing else - if you need any vegetables or any sides you have to order separately whacking the price up.

It's a name and overall we had a good time, but expensive and lacking in the real "wow" factor on the food. Table service was very average and lacking in flair. We'd have to really consider whether we'd head back to Hix.

We really enjoyed our trip to HIX. The kids menu was excellent with a good choice at good prices.

Everything we ordered was hot, fresh, crisp, delicious and perfectly seasoned.

Had the filthy black cow martini which was amazing. Also has the cockle popcorn and pork crackling which was equally amazing.
Highly recommended!

My wife and I had Dinner here during our stay in London.
Welcome was friendly. It was too dark for us to read the menu properly, So we asked for a candle. Every table had one except ours. The answer was there weren't any left. We also asked for some bread. Without success though.
The Food was nice, quite anbitious for such a loud, dark and squeezed Restaurant.
