Our first night out as a group since lockdown for our Best Mates birthday.
Very well organised, temperature taken on arrival. Shown to table outside for drinks whilst waiting for friends to arrive. It was a surprise and they even changed the booking name so he wouldn’t know when he arrived. Drinks ordered and served to the table.
Great atmosphere, great food, great drinks, great service 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 as always. They really went above and beyond to make it a special night!
Such a great place to social with friends and enjoy their company after all these months with superb atmosphere, food, drinks but the 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 have to go to all the hardworking staff who make this possible.
Thank You All
Great night! Lovely food and lovely lady serving us!
A hidden gem! Food was fantastic with a lovely atmosphere and the open air bar with a retractable roof is a fab place to sit and drink. Def recommend.
Atmosphere was amazing! The gentleman walking around with the saxophone added much more class. The food was lovely and the cocktails were even better. Would definitely recommend, and look forward to going back with friends :)
If you’re looking for a place that doesn’t feel like Epsom but has amazing food service and atmosphere I 100% recommend lava Lounge! From the amazing drinks to the great service of all the staff including the manager Imran I can’t praise it highly enough! After my fifth time off going here I still can’t fault it and it gets better every single time!
Food was mediocre but drinks and atmosphere amazing would come back and try something different for sure
Food very good don’t see why you have to pay service charge on drinks at the bar
Fantastic food - spoiled.
I get that the Lava Lounge is looking to create a certain image but the excessive noise more than overpowered what is excellent food. The live music is blasted straight into the dining area - the speaker is in one corner directed at all the diners. Indeed it was quieter in the bar area, the lounge and even standing next to the guitarist!
The volume was such that everyone had to shout to have a conversation, my wife left with a headache - not bad for a birthday surprise! When the guitarist stopped the volume noticeably dropped. Indeed as we were paying our bill it was between songs (thankfully something that often lasted at least a minute every time). The waiter took on board my comments but the truth was apparent that when the guitarist started again he simply put his thumb up in agreement, nodded and we left - even the waiters gave up trying to talk when the music overpowered
I would love to go there again but sadly will not because of the noisy atmosphere that overpowers everything else. A shame. Food this good does not need gimmicks to sell, it should focus on that.
Definitely recommend the Tomahawk steak.Delicious. Staff attentive but a little unsmiley!
From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the manager, Imran, who kindly showed us to our outside table, in a fantastic oasis and informed us that our waiter for the night would be James. James was extremely friendly and helpful, in fact he couldn't do enough for us, even down to making sure the heater was on all the time we were there, (we had said we were chilly). He ran back and forth on many occasions to turn it on, just to ensure we were warm and comfortable. Table service was excellent. My favourite wine is the house white, which is one of the best wines I have tasted! Food was excellent, we shared our main courses and loved both of them. The creme brulee was out of this world. Then to top it all, we received 20% NHS discount, absolute bargain!
Overall, an excellent experience, can't fault it at all and I would highly recommend it.
Imran, see you very soon and thank you.
The vegetarian option was a cauliflower steak - a singed half a cauliflower head with some quinoa and 2 tiny corn on the cob for £18. Totally overpriced - surely there’s a better vegetarian option that isn’t a veggie burger !
Having said that, my friends had a great steak and the ambience is nice but I wk t return unless the veggie option is revised
Was looking forward to this place after hearing good things but what a disappointment.
Service staff member was so rude- not sure if it’s because none of us were drinking. So he thought we were cheap skates!
Veggie burger arrived not as described- no prior warning and just told it must have run out when we questioned.
Music was too loud.
Glad we ate there on a offer as it would be a complete waste of money otherwise.
Won’t be heading back!
I never write reviews but I couldn't not after my first visit to Lava Lounge, temperature check and hand sanitizer at the door which was reassuring, we was welcomed into nice chilled vibes, all staff were friendly and chatty and delivered a quick service, however we was not rushed to leave the table once we had finsihed eating which is rare, a real nice relaxed atmosphere.
Would definitely recommend and cannot wait to return for the yummy food and cocktails 🤤
Lovely evening, good service, and great food
Very nice steak and meat in there, and cooked precisely to how you would like it cooked. Drinks were lovely, and the ambience was busy but not crowded
Nice food but ridiculously overpriced even with the 50% discount. Wouldn’t return :(
Lovely food as always; not particularly cheap but good quality. Menu has changed slightly; was looking forward to what I had last time but no matter, what I had was great! Love the decor and environment.
Had such a good time at lava lounge food was really good would definitely go back for the food alone! The vibe in the restaurant is great good music and live sax but not so loud you can’t hear! Service was good in the restaurant! But have to say when we sat in the cocktail lounge service was pretty slow we ended leaving to get drinks else where. All in all I’d go back and I will recommend and already have.
One extra wish the cocktail lounge had dimmed lights! Was a bit bright and it was late.
Food and cocktails are amazing lovely saxophone playing in the background, would highly recommend
First time at lava lounge, me and my friends had a great time. Service was great,food was lovely will defo be returning and recommending to others
Food was lovely
Services was lovely
All nice people who work there would 100% recommended
Great atmosphere. Lovely food and delicious cocktails.
The food was ok, although not being able to order 2 starters instead of a main was a bit frustrating! Lovely decor, but the music was extremely loud in the dining area (The speaker is at the entrance!) and you had to shout to be heard. Our whole meal felt very rushed. We hardly finished our starter when the main arrived. For the price you pay I would expect more.
Wonderful service and a very pleasant experience. Food was of a very high standard and the cocktails are wonderful. Staff were very friendly and the live music was a great addition. Will definitely return.
Great atmosphere, good for a treat as not the cheapest
Hi I just wanted to give some feedback following my visit tonight,
Food was lovely and drinks great too!
We booked for 6pm and were told when we arrived that we could only have our table until 7:45 because they had another booking! We felt very rushed and when you’re spending that amount of money on food and drink you do not expect to be rushed! They told us if we wanted pudding we would have to sit in the bar because the next people needed the table! I couldn’t believe it!!! If I had known that they were going to rush us like they did I may booked somewhere else. It was a lot of money to end up moving half way through and having to eat your pudding in the bar! In future I think you should let people know that the tables have a time limit so that then we can decide whether we are ok with that or whether we want to go somewhere else. Slightly disappointed that we had to move tables half way through the meal.
Fantastic food of great quality ingredients and was delicious. Highly recommend to anyone! You cannot go wrong!
Fantastic restaurant. Food was very tasty and the cocktails are amazing. Great atmosphere
Food was really tasty but it's not cheap. Atmosphere is so good and the staff are really friendly.
Nice relaxed “lounge” vibe although music is just a notch too loud for relaxed conversation at the table. Delicious food & good value when get a reduction. Staff could be a little more attentive but overall very welcoming. Will definitely go there again.
Thank you for taking the time to share your review! We always appreciate honest feedback, and it does indeed get pretty lively at Lava Lounge. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your food and we sincerely apologise that our service did not satisfy your expectations on this occasion. Hope to welcome you again soon.
Highly recommend this place, feels like your on holiday. the only downside & this is not the restaurant fault, we had a table outside, people came out & smoked beside us. can there be a smoking area away from diners?
Thank you for your review! We are delighted that you enjoyed the Lava atmosphere. We are sorry that to hear that other guests smoked near you. No smoking is permitted in the outdoor lounge from next month. Hope to see you back soon!
Lovely food and staff for sure! Great place to go to for date night or just a fun night out with family and friends. The gentlemen at the door are very welcoming and helpful. The drinks/cocktails are definitely different compared to other places. We’ve been there twice already this week. Big thumbs up from me and my partner. Will be back for sure :)

First time visiting Lava Lounge and would definitely recommend... Food was absolutely fantastic and I'm a very fussy water.
The only disappointment was that when you go and sit in the outside area people are aloud to smoke when it's covered... The smell become a little over powerful and off putting.
Thank you for your review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your evening with us. We are sorry to hear that other guests smoked near you. No smoking will be permitted in the outdoor lounge in the colder months. Hope to see you back soon!
Nothing I write will do the place justice. The staff are friendly and the food was delicious. The cocktails were amazing!! 10/10. Thank you for having us and I will come back. Was good night with friends but would also make a good date night.
Wow thank you so much for your amazing review! We are so happy to see that you enjoyed your time with us. Hope to see you back soon for another dose of Lava! All the best.
