"A vengeful dark comedy that probes percolating class anxieties."
— Lovia Gyarkye, Hollywood Reporter
"Foodie culture is slayed, literally, in this expert black comedy."
— Max Weiss, Baltimore Magazine
"Satire of the darkest possible, hilarious kind, best served with plenty of popcorn."
— Bethany Jean Clement, Seattle Times
"The Menu not only has all the right ingredients — from the cast to the ominous cinematography and a wicked screenplay – but manages to deliver even more than what is promised."
— Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News
"The complexity, both tonally and visually, is there to tease out the film’s black genre heart, and it’s that heart that makes The Menu a delicious and deeply filling experience that will make you beg for a second helping."
— Matthew Jackson, Paste Magazine
"Bizarre, original and loaded with revelatory surprises with every turn of the page, The Menu uses the culture of haute cuisine as a metaphor for the spit-roasted values of high society, with results that are vicious, delicious, and horrifying."
— Rex Reed, Observer
"The Menu is the most entertaining ensemble film since Knives Out, and the most engaging horror-satire since Get Out. But no matter what comparisons and assumptions are made, The Menu will not be the movie you expect."
— Thom Ernst, Original-Cin
"Foodie culture gets hilariously torched as a celebrity chef, acted to pretentious perfection by Ralph Fiennes, holds his customers, except for a deliciously defiant Anya Taylor-Joy, to the fire at his restaurant from hell. It’s all delectably unhinged."
— Peter Travers, ABC News
"The Menu is a hilariously wicked thriller about the world of high-end restaurants, featuring a stellar cast led by a phenomenal Ralph Fiennes, some of the most gorgeous food shots in recent film history, and accompanied by a delicious hors d'oeuvres sampling of commentary on the service industry, class warfare, and consumerism."
