 (London)·Dined on 20 May 2017

At our visit the venue was under staffed therefore service slow and having to wait a couple of times with no drinks. The staff were friendly and polite and and it was not the individuals fault for poor waitress service. Food all came out at different times and one starter was forgotten as was one of the sides with the main course.

I requested a quiet area and we were seated upstairs, the decor and ambience was top notch as was the Service. Early bird drinks offer would have made it more appealing to stay after the meal but overall a very nice experience.

 (Lancashire)·Dined on 15 April 2017

The resteraunt is upstairs which has recently been renovated to a really high standard . The food is good we ordered steaks which were vert nice the only gripe I had there was I asked for the steak to be medium well just slightly pink but it wasnt it was overkooked . The main complaint though was it being my husbands birthday when we arrived one of the waiters said at the end of the meal they were going to bring a small cake out with sparklers on which would have been really nice. But sadly no cake arrived. I was very disappointed because the resteraunt was not that busy so you really couldn't say they had an excuse just other than forgetting. Would I visit here again? Probably not

The Living Room is great in the evening if you are with a group of friends, we went at 9:30 on a Saturday night and although we were upstairs away from the bar it was still very loud, to be fair we knew what it would be like. Eaten at lunchtime many times which is more relaxed. The food was good and service alright, depends what you're looking for really. Good venue for reasonably priced food in a vibrant bar/restaurant.

We were sat basically on top of the speakers, my friends and I like music but if we were eating it wouldn't have been a good table chat on as we couldn't her each other and the seat actually vibrated!!!!
It was good to have table service but the girls asked us repeatedly what we wanted presumably because they couldn't hear us either!
I wouldn't eat there after this experience, it's a good bar for a drink but that table is terribly positioned with regards to the speaker.

Lovely elegant decor. Service friendly and efficient. Food was lovely. We were a party of 5 having a pre MENA meal. To enhance the ambiance there was s fabulous pianist/singer playing while we ate. We all chose burgers which were delicious. Would definitely return. Would be nice to have drinks at the very spacious and elegant bar downstairs.

I came in on Valentine's day with my partner, when I booked the table I was asked if I wanted the ala carte menu or the Valentine's day set menu; I chose the Valentine's set menu. When we arrived we were given the ala carte menu and not even the choice of the set menu. The tables were not set up for Valentines either. Anyway, the food was gorgeous, the staff were lovely (although they seemed a bit pre-occupied at times with setting up for other valentines tables). I just started to feel like we were a hindrance for dining whilst the staff were setting up. If I knew that I had my first Valentines booking at a certain time, I would make sure that all the tables were ready for that first arrival. Sorry for sounding super negative; I still had a nice time.

Great food and cocktails (as always), fast and efficient service from polite, attentive staff, Francesca in particular. We dined in the upstairs dining room and really enjoyed the pianist, however the music from the lower bar area was a little loud for the time of night 9 O'clock.

One minor criticism is the low height of the seats at our table. I am five foot five but had to sit at the edge of my seat to enjoy food and drinks, it did get a little uncomfortable at times. Other than that I definitely recommend the restaurant.
