I have a crush on Jamie Oliver. There is always a massive queue outside Jamie's. I got there at about 5pm and managed to only wait 15 minutes but my friends tell me that you should expect to wait an average of an hour.
To be honest, I thought the place was a bit hyped up for what it was. The food was still good. I'm just not sure it would be worth the wait. The pork belly was nice but not amazing. The pasta was different. I found it slightly oily and the scallops were ok. The polenta chips were crispy little cubes. I'll have to come back to try the different food if I have the patience to wait.
My waiter Daniel introduced himself to myself and a friend so I felt the need to tell him my name in return. I politely asked him to swap my dirty fork with a new one. The customer service was good ultimately. I asked him how the tip system worked wondering if Daniel would directly benefit. He said he did with a small cut for the chef/front of house staff which I thought was fair.
