This cut is from the centre section of the short loin, which consistently produces great flavour and texture
With its high fat content, this cut is juicy, tender, with more marbling and an intense flavour from the eye of fat
Garlic King Prawns Cooked in Garlic Butter and Parsley
served on a toasted Bruschetta with Cherry Tomatoes
We had a party to get to and didn’t have as much time to relax as would usually like. The staff were really good and served our food in good time.
Lovely food, cooked perfectly, served by friendly staff.
We bought a groupon for this meal, which made it excellent value.
We have been to 1573 many times and are never disappointed.
Very rude staff- awkward atmosphere- such a shame as the food was lovely
Delicious food, nice atmosphere, friendly staff, highly recommend
Bought from the Lunch time set menu.
Quiet Saturday afternoon. Not sufficient staff on, service was very slow.
Food was lovely.
We sat outside which was lovely but unfortunately there were 8 of us and we could not sit together.
Service was excellent by Cameron in particular and George the manager .
Compliments to the chef as food was excellent.
The meat was tough to eat but not sure whether anything could be done about this.
Well done and keep up the great service.
Great food, great service very clean restaurant will book again
Lovely food and atmosphere. Definitely recommend.
What a great place. Lovely food and great value especially the lunchtime deal. Music was a little loud for a lunch time. 😂 but I’m old.
disappointing, half the menu wasn't available because of equipment failure in the kitchen......although the waiting staff were brilliant I felt they were put under pressure to hard sell anything....it was supposed to be a romantic meal and I counted 7 times they asked if I wanted anything else,,,,,kind of reputedly disturbed the moment....if I want anything I'll ask....I would have normally left a decent tip but this time couldn't really warrant giving one....
This is the fourth time that I have brought my team here and it has never disappointed me!. The service and food was excellent!
First visit food was so good definitely be returning
Have eaten here on several occasions great food great service one of my favourite restaurants
Food was very good. My wife’s steak was tough and when we complained the staff and manager could not have been more helpful. I think how a restaurant responds when there is a problem reflects much more accurately their professionalism than when things go well. Result, we will definitely go back and recommend it. All it cost the restaurant for this good will was an apology and an extra steak. They will make this back in spades from us in the future.
The food was lovely and the service was excellent. However, it's not cheap !
We dined on a sunday lunchtime and had a fabulous time. The food was lovely, priced as expected and all our meals were delicious. I had the seabass and it was gorgeous.
The only downfall is the price of the drinks, a bottle of estrelle is £4.25 meaning its £8.50 a pint. However overall the experience was great and I will be going back.
The music too loud otherwise a lovely evening and the food was very good. Staff helpful when asked questions.
1573 has always been my favourite restaurant, however this was our first visit since lockdown and we were quite disappointed. Even though we had booked a table felt like we were just given what was left. Prices appeared to have increased. My husband had the half rack of ribs to start and that’s literally what came on the plate, no dressing- feel for the price paid this was poor presentation. We were served by many different people which made it all feel a-bit chaotic. However the food did all taste lovely and was all really hot just feel your not getting as good value for money has we did previously and the presentation not up to it’s usually good standard- especially for the price your expected to pay!!!!
Have been to 1573 many times before and have found it to be good but unfortunately we didn’t have a very good experience on this occassion. It is a predominantly a steak restaurant and they didn’t have any fillet steak available at 5:30pm. They were good enough to take the red wine we ordered back since we couldn’t have steak. I think all restaurants are struggling with finding staff at the moment. We should have been told about the menu limitations and I prefer not to be called “mate”. Even though the restaurant was nearly empty, they sat us in a corner, squashed very close to a neighbouring table, who were drunk and loud. Probably won’t go back again, which is such a shame as it used to be our go to restaurant in the city centre. I hope they take on board this feedback and improve the service.
Lovely food we all really enjoyed our meals and good ambiance. Service generally good and attentive, but a little slow at the end getting the bill.
Hi bar 1573 has always been a favourite restaurant for me. I celebrated my 50th birthday there, enjoyed the food and atmosphere amongst probably 30 friends and family upstairs. So I’ve always recommend the place to friends and colleagues. I booked a table for myself, my wife and two close friend one Saturday 31st of July at 8:30 pm. The bar and grill was still lovely as i remembered.
After a short while we were asked what drinks we would l
Like. The ladies had a usual bottle of Prosecco, myself and my friend found a very limited choice in bottles of a nice ale / bitter . We then made our meal orders, which then took at least 40 plus minutes to arrive. The service did not seem very attentive, we had to practically wave to order a bottle of wine.
We felt like the evening came to an abrupt ending, as we felt we were being pushed out.
Personally, would i now recommend bar 1587, unfortunately the answer would be no. Will i be returning any time soon, no.
I apologise I don’t usually complain, life’s short
Brilliant food. Great service. Very reasonable prices for the quality of the food that is presented
Booked through open table due to staying at the Villare Hotel. The food and service was professional, friendly staff to ask about the best mixers with certain drinks etc. Would deffo recommend!
Birthday weekend and was given a glass of Prosecco on the house
Waited ages for the food, Steak was well over cooked, chewy and tough. Not expected from a fillet.
Presentation of food wasn't great.
Completely different level of food to when I have previously been... has this changed hands in the last 2 years ?
Waitress was attentive and provide a good service
Had a few random people come up to the table which wasn't ideal.
Really good steak! Service was great, professional and friendly
Had ran out of Sunday dinners, salmon and one of the starters we had wanted this was only at 5.30pm so not late and had already ran out of a lot of choice on the limited menu. Ordered the filet steak which was average. Service ok, but not great for saying it wasn’t that busy. Staff didn’t come over to see if we wanted more drinks etc. Not really any atmosphere in there. Would not rush back.
Sunday lunch had sold out at 1700 when it is advertised from 1200-1800 - we were not advised of this until seated. The portions from the a la carte menu were very much on the small side and a lot of options were not available. The cost is high for the offering.
Lovely restaurant. We had visited before so looked forward to returning. Service however was terrible. Very slow. Nobody checking if we needed anything or if our meals were ok. Ordered drinks during the meal which never arrived. Small portions of average. Such a shame.
Lovely food - one of our favourite restaurants. Slightly disappointed in the dessert selection and no cheeseboard on offer, but overall 9/10
We went for a special occasions and ordered our regular meals. The sauce tasted completely differently to previous visits and when I asked the waitress she said the chef had informed her that the sauce was the same. She said the sauce had not been changed for the past two years but clearly it had. I asked my husband to taste it and he agreed with me. His steak was disappointing. It’s a shame as it’s one of our favorite restaurants.
Having been here before 2 years ago we were looking forward to going back. Unfortunately it did not live up to expectations. The steak was unfortunately a massive let down. The flame grill char was all you could taste (i was aware that there would be a little taste as per the web disclaimer but it wasn't an issue last time), to the point that some of the thinner parts were un-edible. Sadly I don't think we would return again because for the price of it, inside is really quite a let down.
I must add the staff were great though, very welcoming. They just need a make-over inside and to either clean the grill or use a different technique.
Food, location was outstanding. Food took a while to come which isn’t a problem however servers could advise customers about delays.
Used to be my favourite restaurant for service and top food. Last night it was bad from start to finish we waited 1hr40 for our mains, they forgot about us, other tables coming in after us was served before us. We had our 2 year old with us so by the time we got our mains she was very upset and bored so it ruined the experience and we ended up leaving with most our dinner not ate. The roast looked good but my fillet steak wasn’t cooked to how I wanted, and wasn’t worth the price. I couldn’t be bothered to complain anymore. Although we received an laim apology, I was still not happy with how we was treated. We was offered a free drink whilst we waited. I wouldn’t go back here it seems their may be new management and chef as we are regulars and didn’t recognise any of the usual staff, and the food was a 2/10. Much better places for a steak in Leicester now.
Very friendly polite helpful staff, nothing was any trouble. The food was amazing.
We had a good night out but the menu was quite limited (Yes this could be down to Covid) but felt that there could've been a better selection. the dessert menu had 3x choices + ice cream but plenty of hot drinks!!!
At £75 for me & my partner which was for 2 courses + 2x alcoholic drinks, its a pricey place, when the selection is limited
With that, the service was very good.
the food was beautiful- couldn't fault it but it took an hour for our main to come out and because we didn't choose starters, it seemed like an eternity. The waitress was lovely and attentive it was just the speed from the kitchen.
Dined at lunchtime. I had one of the very best sirloin steaks I have ever had. My wife had a cheese burger which was, sadly, rather dry.
I would recommend dining as early in a sitting as possible as the food takes a bit long to appear. They probably need more staff to give the service levels that the quality of the food justifies.
We will be returning and I would recommend that people try this venue.
A lovely welcome on arrival and acknowledged the special occasion mentioned on the online booking. Friendly, courteous and prompt service without being OTT. Never needed to ask for anything as everything was pre-emptied.
Birthday meal for other half
