On this occasion the restaurant appeared short staffed. Waiters and possibly kitchen staff. Service very slow and many had to rush their food or keep asking where it was as they had theatre tickets for 19.30. A lot of these were in the resturant and seated by 17.45. We arrived at 17.30 but had to forgo a coffee for my wife who ordered it at 18.50 but we gave up at 19.15 when it hadnt arrived. The food is excellent for the price but my steak which was of good quality was only cooked rare to medium when i requested medium to well done. It was still tender and didnt bother to return as wished to eat my meal along with my wife as it could have been quite a wait judging by others waiting for their food. One couple commented that it was thier first time, the food was excellent but their enjoyment was ruined by having to continually look at thier watches, ask for service and finally rush it down. They were in the restaurant at 18.00 and got served their main course at 19.05. Suggest if you are going to book for a pre theatre meal give yourself at least two hours before the show starts as they struggle to cope.
I can't complain because the food was nice. I had mussels for starters, the sauce was abit weak but the mussels themselves were beaut. I had salmon pasta for mains and it was delicious and a good size portion as well. The drinks were the only let down...we ordered a round of cocktails and they were very weak and not very well put together...basic cocktail tbh. Also, it had on the menu as well as website that there was an offer on and the reason we booked was to avail of this offer as we are all students so we try and be thrifty as possible. To find out the offer had been retracted was disappointing however, despite this, our waitress let us avail of a drinks offer despite the allowed timeframe having past (kind of needed it tho as the drinks were so weak). Overall, good, but don't think I'd return tbh unless I was stuck
We walked in with 1 extra person. This was a lunch for 7 to celebrate the recent retirements of two colleagues. We had a very attentive and charming waiter. Our food came fast and just as we had ordered. The food was good, nicely presented and appropriately proportioned. It wasn’t fine dining, but was tasty. The restaurant was a pleasant place to be. We each ate two courses, coffee and a beer or glass of wine for less than £20 each. We had a relaxing lunch over two hours. I would recommend this place to my to anyone.
Good food good service and good atmosphere a really lovely meal before heading to show at the philharmonic. Nice selection of dishes .My meal was delayed and waiter reduced bill and also gave us free drink. Service by friendly staff is always a plus will go back again. Fish dish, smoked haddock was really good!
The waitress was lovely and very helpful however the wine delivery hadn't turned up so there was none of the wine that we wanted to go with our meal. The sea bass came without the sauce it was supposed to be served with and was dry it also didnt taste very fresh. We didnt stay for dessert. The waitress was on her own and seemed to be apologising to all the customers. It was my 2nd time and I returned after a lovely faultless 1st visit but not to sure if we will be returning again
Excellent and friendly service. Food was really, really nice. Used to go to Bistro Jacques, which was there before this restaurant, and was disappointed to see it go. Delighted it’s been replaced with a place just as good, if not better. Definitely going back. Grazie Mille!
