Really friendly atmosphere and plenty of choices on the menu - it was hard to decide! One of those places you could go back to time and again so you can try the other dishes you had to forego.

We’ve been to 21 many times. On Friday our visit was, as before, a very pleasant experience. Good food and good service within pleasant surroundings leading to a most enjoyable night. Thank you to all involved at the restaurant.

The vegan menu is poor and 2 mains are pasta!! There are 3 choices... not really inventive menu and too expensive for what we get!!

Thought the atmosphere was good, staff were very friendly and attentive. Cocktails were also great.

We ordered the steak for 2 and it was cooked beautifully. Also cooked fairly quickly from ordering. Only thing I would say is the side dishes are a bit bland and menu could include additional dishes.

Nice restaurant overall. Would go back.

We had a fabulous dining experience at 21 on Sat 7th April for my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary. We have always booked 21 for all our family special occasions , as you always reliably deliver exactly what we want in a restaurant. Congratulations on keeping your high standards solid over the years. I look forward to coming back next time! Many thanks to you all 😁

Great service but food was not as good as it should be at the price. Had two coffees each (very small cups) and were charged for both - wouldn’t have hurt them to do the second refills free when you see the ridiculous prices they charge for the food and wine. Also got charged for someone else’s drinks but luckily we checked the bill before paying. All in all I wouldn’t return unless they up the quality of the food or reduce the prices

Overall our food was great as usual however my mum had sea trout which was a tad under cooked, the waiter noticed mum was pushing food around the plate and came over to offer to cook another one however by this time other people in the party had finished and I think my mum was a little put off. The manager without any question deducted the meal from the total bill. We will be back.

The wine not being cold let’s this restaurant down. I actually rang earlier that day to check the wine would be cold as we came in October for my friends 50th celebration and the fridges were broken hence warm wine then. We were celebrating my daughters birthday. I would not return

We had a lovely mother's day late lunch. The food was excellent. Generous portions and reasonably priced for the quality. The staff were very pleasant, attentive and helpful.
One recommendation would be for more vegan choices. There is a vegetarian menu - it is quite eggy and milk/cream/cheese/butter focused.

Our favourite restaurant in Newcastle, infact in the NE! Consistently fabulous quality, presentation and more importantly great taste! Good for a special occasion, or for a more relaxed Sunday dinner.

Rushed to our table after sitting in bar area for 5 minutes. Didn't take order before sitting down.
Gave us 3x square tables for 2 pushed together when we were a 5 and should have been allocated a round table.

My wife and I occasionally visit 21 and always have the Cote de Boeuf, which, when is exceptionally well aged, tastes amazing. Though the previous time we weren't blown away, this time the meat was exceptional, as it should be.

Cocktails are great, their bloody Mary is great.

The only downside was the much smaller portion of Jamon Iberico compared to what it previously used to be, also it was cut like normal ham and not sliced like Iberico should be.

Nevertheless, a great place and we'll be back.
