Hygge menu in January 2019 was great - the 'Smorgasbrod' gave a taster of all options and was great to share between two.

Attended Inox Dine for our daughter’s Masters Graduation and chose from the Winter Graduation menu. Service was very attentive but not in any way intrusive and the atmosphere was very relaxed. This is our second graduation meal at this restaurant and I was not disappointed in any way.

Overall, very impressed by the service, starters, and the majority of the mains. However, one of our party was not keen on the purple potatoes which was a shame because she really enjoyed the rest of the dish and felt that it ruined the taste of the salmon, sides, and sauce. Further, the two who had the dhaal dish (one with chicken, one vegetarian) found that the rice was inedible due to the amount of turmeric. Again, the rest of this dish was delicious so just a shame that the side couldn't be eaten with it.
Despite the above, we were really impressed by the service and appreciated the lovely gesture of bringing out a 'thank you' plate to complement the balloons that were brought. It was a special way to end the meal.
Unfortunately, the details mentioned were the reasons why we felt unable to raise the ratings but, should these be addressed, we would absolutely recommend Inox to others.

Delicious food and great service at this Sheffield Uni venue. Was a little quiet the evening we dined here - would be more atmospheric if busier and opened later.

Fabulous place for afternoon tea at exceptional value. Each item is beautifully presented and hand made. Especially good for those of us alumni nostalgically looking back to our university days and beautiful views of the city in a chic modern environment.
Quick note- it's even better to offer a second plate and knife with an afternoon tea (which I did get the first time), as savoury and sweet don't mix well!
A great experience for a friend's special birthday though. Thanks

Whilst the food was excellent and the ambience was comfortable, the service was exceptional. Our waitress/Deputy House Manager was warm and welcoming with an easy touch. One tiny niggle was that our desert was a long time coming which meant that I had to gobble it down as the meal was pre-concert (Firth Hall) - I couldn't do the desert justice.
Other good points are the complementary water (still or fizzy) which comes in refillable bottles. The set menu offers excellent value for money.
The tables are far enough apart to allow a degree of privacy.
The music is relaxing and at a volume that doesn't intrude into the conversation.
We are so impressed we're heading to Inox (less than a week later) to celebrate our daughter's birthday!

We booked for 6.30 (their latest usually) and were a bit late. They couldn't have been more welcoming. Only us there. Why hadn't more people booked? No idea, except that Inox Dine is aiming more at the lunch market. Delicious food. Several veggie or vegan options. Everything cooked beautifully. Nice wine. Very reasonable price: under £50 for 3 courses and glass of wine for 2. Perfect anniversary meal. Hope to go again soon.

The food is trying to be fancy but falls short in the execution. Goats cheese and lemon thyme parfait tasted only of goats cheese, was rock hard, straight out of the fridge and was very dense. The oatcakes were good, the orange and beetroot pleasant, though not enough for the amount of goats cheese. The beef was only moderately warm. Perhaps this was intentional, but if it is intentional, it's wrong. The 'INOX' potato skins were also not hot enough and were an unappealing brown. Apart from some visible beef and spring onion, it tasted of very little therefore we weren't sure what was in it. The highlight was the dessert, though it was rather heavy for an egg tart. Positives were that the nutmeg was generous and pear puree added a fresh element to the dish. The cinnamon donut was overdone but it was a relief to have something genuinely hot. The staff tried to be efficient and pleasant but we had our bread plates left until well past ordering dessert. Pleasant enough but needs refining.

Visited during Hygge week. We shared the smorgasbord...which was like Danish tapas. It was very tasty and great value for money. Well presented food and friendly staff. 2 for 1 cocktails during Happy Hour was an added bonus! Well worth a visit.

Eaten here twice and the food is always interesting and tasty. My last visit was not as good as my initial one. We were sat on a table tucked away in the corner which affected the service and twice had to seek out waiters to be served. However, it is a great view and nice ambience, so if the service was improved it would be a lovely place to eat.

A group of friends went for dinner on a Monday night. We were the only table all night. I have been to Inox on several occasions and found the food to be good value for money and well-prepared. We were let down on this occasion. Friends' comments about the food was that the pork belly and the salmon were both overcooked, the risotto was bland and tasted like baby food and the cheese board was disappointing as only one cheese, blue cheese, was served. It is probably better to name the cheese if only one is served than calling it a cheese board. Staff was friendly but could probably have been a little more attentive given we were the only table...

Needs more people in to give it atmosphere. Need to experiment with price and special offers to achieve this.
In terms of competition for business lunch look at Bistrot Pierre, Piccolinos, Vera Gusto and Nonnas.
Portion sizes could be reduced with no loss in value.

Very good food & service. Very, very good price. plenty of varied options on the menu.
if I was searching for any not so good points I would say the lack of other diners meant there was not much atmosphere, but take good company and its perfect, will definately go back.

It was our first visit and my husband and I had 2 courses with 2 drinks & wine. We had complimentary homemade bread with Hendersons relish butter, (gorgeous).
We had the risotto and the Yorkshire charcuterie, both were absolutely delicious. Then I had hake with samphire, fennel and a bean casserole, my husband had calves liver and bacon, served with individual accompaniments and both were really lovely.
I had 1/2 lager, £2.20 my husband a bottle of beer, £4.50, we then had a bottle of Malbec red wine, which was very nice, but also very overpriced at £22.
The food is very reasonably priced and of excellent quality, the staff are really friendly and knowledgeable.
We will definitely go again but with even the cheapest bottle of wine at almost £18, we will give that a miss, which is a shame as it is part of the pleasure of dining out.

The buckwheat pancake was tasty and good value for lunch. However, my first choice of filling (cheddar and spinach) was not available and the waiting staff - although friendly are not very knowledgeable about the menu. I feel like this happens every time I've been and for me is what let's the experience down.

Came for the special valetines afternoon tea, found out that the menu wasn't what was advertised online. Got told this was because of a miscommunication but didn't get told about this before i arrived even though I called to check the booking. Didn't enjoy the meal, the rhubarb panna cotta was too set so it was like plastic, the Halva was just not nice. Said at the time that I hadnt enjoyed it and got told that someone would get in touch, they didn't.

Very good food selected from 'event' theme menu. chose the meal for 2 which included a sample of all the mains available, on the event menu, also with 2 salad sides and some bread. the quality of the food was brilliant, what you expect from a notable restaurant, much better than a high street chain. the quantity was ample for 2.
the service was friendly and warm although a little slow at times.
the price was very reasonable for the quality of the food.
I would highly recommend, especially if a seasonal menu takes your fancy, you wont be disappointed.
