We particularly appreciated the quality of the ingredients, the accuracy and simplicity of the cooking, the cotes du rhone by the glass and the pleasant service. Not cheap and tables pretty close but we'll come back.

Brilliantly executed and presented food, cosy interior and lovely well informed staff. What every neighbourhood needs- not got pretensions, just inspired, seasonal cooking with great quality ingredients.

I loved this restaurant - it's the first time I've enjoyed healthy, fast food. It used to be a great option for pre-theatre meals but now that they've cut the early dinner specials menu it's a bit overpriced to visit regularly. A real shame.

The food is outstanding. The menu is varied and cleverly formulated. However, there are a number of places where this is the case. What sets the Season Kitchen apart is the fact that all of the staff really believe in providing an outstanding experience to the diner. Sometimes this will mean an individual going the extra mile - for us this meant serving us a sample of the Earl Grey ice cream that we had expressed an interest in, but was part of a dessert we didn't end up ordering, and then explaining to us how we might make it ourselves when we exclaimed in delight over how lovely it was. There are also however numerous touches that add to the experience but have clearly been thought out in advance - the bread served as an appetiser is beautiful and clearly homemade, and when we enquired about the ingredients they already had beautiful little recipe card made in advance that they gave us to take away. This place melds great food with wonderful service, and it comes together to result in a fantastic experience. Needless to say, we would recommend.

A cosy, intimate atmosphere with a brilliant host/owner. The chef took the time to come and chat to us about the gluten free options for my girlfriend who is coeliac, which shows how much not only the owner but the kitchen care about serving their guests to the highest standards. The owner was incredibly knowledgeable on the wine list, and his recommendation was great. The food also turned out to be incredibly tasty. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone who appreciates brilliant food and mid-upper level prices (this place is worth it).

Steak was cooked perfectly to order. Greens were delicious and perfectly cooked. Wine was delicious. However some of the food was over-seasoned (too salty) - the 'crinkle cut chips' were neither crinkle cut nor chips but deep fried potato chunks and very salty...there was even salt sprinkled ontop of the rosemary chocolate pot dessert - after the previous salt onslaught the chocolate pot was not sweet enough or chocolaty enough to warrant this. Portion sizes were variable - chocolate pot very small, poached pears were fine. We were also it appears charged for the tap water which is a restaurant first for me. Albiet only £3, but it was an unfortunate and rather miserly charge which instead of mentioning we just reduced the service charge we normally give. It doesn't exactly leave you with a warm glow.

Went to the Season Kitchen for Valentine's Day and it was great. We must have been one of the last booked tables at 9.30pm, and just about the last ones to leave, but never felt rushed. The set menu was expensive at £50 per head on that night, but the atmosphere, service and quality of food was high for us, so didn't mind this given the day that it was on. I'm a Finsbury Park local, and would go back again.

Wonderful meal - we had baby Squid and asparagus as starters, we both had the flat iron steaks with crinkle cut chips, hisp cabbage and chicory with blood orange and honeycomb. Shared a cheese board to finish. Only criticism would be it didn't seem to be blood orange, but that didn't detract from the meal. Definitely go again. Small menu but spoilt for choice - could've picked any of the starters or mains. Very small restaurant and tables for 2 very close together - couple next to us seemed to be arguing for most of the meal.

This is an interesting and eclectic if narrow menu even for a small establishment. Service was pleasant and helpful but the only fish was cod in sea food sauce, my partner didn't want the sauce and the chef showed zero imagination in adapting, which was poor indeed - she was disappointed, and the greens were tough. I chose the veg option which was well prepared but really a dish of different ways of preparing celeriac is a bit odd and without the excellent chips would have been boring. Our friends were well pleased with their ox cheaks. Very narrow choice of deserts. Nice to have Camden beers. We've been here several times before and had better choices, although always well cooked.

Our visit to Season Kitchen on 17th September, after the Park Theatre matinee, was a pleasurable experience. The restaurant is intimate, relaxed and friendly and the staff pleasantly efficient. We found the food excellent, particularly the pulled kid, and refreshingly different in some respects. On top of this you can gaze over the window box flowers on the passing street scene. We shall certainly return when attending the Park Theatre and, hopefully, at other times as well.

Every time we have been the food has been amazing, the staff wonderfully friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere just the right balance between buzzing yet allowing conversation. The frequent changes to the menu mean there is always something exciting on offer, especially in terms of vegetarian options which is all too rare. I would especially recommend the house red - a Tempranillo that I've found always goes wonderfully with whatever I've ordered!

The best Sunday lunch we have had. I would definitely recommend Season. I will definitely be back. The lamb was melt-in-your-mouth good, hey, and it actually tasted like lamb! Roast potatoes perfectly cooked, as were the other vegetables. The gravy was the perfect amount. And all was piping hot! Very pleased. Oh, and the service was also excellent. Well done, and thank you Season for taking your profession seriously.

Seasons is just great - the perfect neighbourhood restaurant if you're lucky enough to live close by, and well worth making the effort to get to if you're further afield. The food is amazing, the service professional but friendly, and after more than a dozen visits over the last couple of years I've yet to find anything negative to say about the place. It's lovely. Just go.

The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was great. It was very quiet when we went abut that still didn't stop us from feeling relaxed. On Sundays the kitchen stops serving at 8pm but the staff were happy for us to stay and finish our drinks until we'd finished. We didn't feel rushed at all. A lovely local place!

If you love steak, then you need to visit this lovely intimate restaurant in Finsbury Park. I opted for the flat iron steak, crinkle cut chips and braised peas and lettuce and it was cooked to perfection! The atmosphere was really warm and the staff were very welcoming. A good option for larger groups or just for two. I will definitely be going back soon!

All round excellent food. The lamb was cooked to perfection and the house wines were smooth and enjoyable. I had the whitebait to start with, which I hadn't had for some time and was delighted by the taste. The chocolate and rosemary dessert was out of this world according to my friend who had it - she's still swooning!

It was fine, nothing disastrous but I was expecting more. Negative points include a protruding nails sticking out of the seat of my chair that I was concerned was going to rip my trousers, the mussels were in a kind of lukewarm dirty dish water and I had hoped they would be in a creamy white wine sauce, the chocolate and rosemary pot had been overstated. Positive points include a really intimate and attractive 'front room' style setting. The chargrilled onion skins were delicious as was the wine.

Excellent food using locally sourced ingredients. The ribeye steak was the best we have eaten. Service was friendly and very efficient with staff taking the time to answer our questions about the menu and the ingredients. One of our party even got a free lesson on how to use a waiters friend to uncork wine.

Fine wine at really low prices accompanied by straightforward and reasonably priced food. The cooking here is simple whilst being well executed and the restaurant has a cute relaxing ambience about it. Its not pretentious and not a big deal either, which is exactly what I want most of the time. Wine list 6/6.

Possibly unfair for me to rate them because I have only been for Sunday lunch, but that is very good. Small and unassuming, but the staff are very pleasant and the food hits the spot. The Sunday roast is as good as anything I have had in much more expensive places.

Season's Kitchen has a great menu with very well thought through mains and side dishes to create delightful meals. The waiting staff were very thoughtful and helped with suggestions and gave insight into the ingredients and techniques in order to help us order the perfect meal. A very good experience.

Really fabulous food. Attentive and relaxed service, with almost all dishes gluten free friendly - including the (extremely good) chips! The flavour and texture combinations of the dishes were spectacular, and well worth the prices. All round good experience and would go again in a heartbeat.

cutest place with an epic little selection of exquisite dishes...all seasonal (name doesn't let you down) and dainty! granary bread to die for. if not for the baby monkfish and pork, just go for the quirky collection of vintage pictures and cutlery. absolutely loved it.

Season is a gem of a restaurant. A local friendly feel with a great seasonal menu. A good wine list excellently prices (they pride themselves on this). I never tire of going and would highly recommend it for both food and experience.

Third visit here, service initially good as usual. Starter of sardines nice. Main course of flat iron steak bit chewy, had to leave some. Mentioned to waiter who said he would tell chef. Nothing came back and bill arrived as normal. Mentioned issue to another waitress and she arranged steak to be taken off bill. Pleasant surprise but felt had to push issue.

By far the best steak I've ever had! The staff is extremely friendly and vibes of the restaurant are very cute and low-key. Every time I go I enjoy it better than the last. They also have a pretty solid Sunday Roast!

A small well thought-out menu results in some imaginative dishes served with great charm in a slightly funky little dining room. Somebody here really cares about food and taking care of customers. Interesting selection of wines too. I loved it.

We are becoming somewhat regular here. That's because it is always very, very good. Cheapsteak Tuesdays are a great midweek treat and the house wine very reasonable. Cosy and buzzing and the people running it love what they do.

We visited on cheap steak Tuesday, and enjoying a rare rump and a rare flat iron with crinkle chips and buttered spinach. All were cooked with care, quality ingredients well handled. We finished with rhubarb and custard donuts, which I recommend everyone does.

Our first visit to this resturant ,we were disappointed . My first course was baby squid which was tasteless I'm afraid to say no seasoning ie salt pepper even the chilli didn't have a kick. Our main course was very nice but wasn't advised to have sides with my dish which was needed . our bill came to over a £100 for two quite pricey for a local resturant.

Visited for a pre-theatre meal and took advantage of their early special deal on steak (or mussels) and chips. Starters were particularly tasty (a burrata with mint and a white gazpacho). Interesting choice of wine by the glass too.
