    Was excited to go here, we were seated and we ordered drinks. 30 mins later no drinks and we asked to order food but they said they weren't serving food anymore despite us booking for dinner and being asked if we were here for dinner which we said yes - never mentioned we wouldn't be able to. Had to get 2 staff to chase drinks and they said they'd forgot. So after 1 hr no drinks no food and watching other people be served food we left.

    Cocktails were great as was the atmosphere, the service was a bit slow however Maria was very accommodating as we were quite late for our booking. The menu was a bit basic but still tasted good, definitely would just go for the drinks next time. Great place for girlfriends and very aesthetically pleasing!! Had a lovely time.

    Place was pretty dead but took ages to get a drinks order taken. Staff were all just standing around conversing. Drinks were ok, but not worth the price - mojito had no sweetness just severely bitter. One plate of chips took ages to come because of a “queue in the kitchen,” but once queried about turned up right away. Weird atmosphere.

    202 Kitchen was absolutely freezing cold to the point that I felt I needed to put my jacket on. The music was unbelievably loud so much so that myself and my friend could barely hear eachother speak. The food was nice albeit a little overpriced however the service was great.

    Food was okay same as mcdonals but triple the price never met such rude staff / waiters in my life didn’t have anything in stock and incredibly over priced for the quality. They really need to change the staff & food quality

    Awful service, waited ages to be seen too, over priced drink that just tasted like juice. Had to ask for knife and fork about 3 times, forgot to bring some of our food, forgot to bring out our drink. Won’t be returning. Lobster tail so rock hard also so don’t bother ordering- it’s definitely tastes nothing like lobster.

    1 word to describe the experience: terrible. We was 4 minutes late due to traffic, we called 3 times (no answer) and upon arrival the women at the door told us within that 4 minutes of lateness she give our table away. After arguing with the women about the situation as it was my birthday, she said she would try and find us a table. When placed at a table it was clearly our table to start off with that she told was given away, very rude women. The service was ok; but everything took forever. Food was ok and drives were average. Good for Instagram photos and the music was good but very loud. Ordered more drinks after food then was given our bill straight away when no one asked for it? So basically wanted us to leave, would not recommend or go again.

    Horrendous service, food wasn’t great, needed an iPhone torch in the toilets (and there was no toilet paper), they tried to charge us £50 over our bill & insisted there was no mistake made (there was) & it’s quite tatty inside. I also wasn’t allowed candles on my cake due to cheap cladding (which is fair enough but get better cladding!) Good points would be the cocktails & the decor.

    Very poor, slow service. We waited 40 minutes to even have our drinks order taken. The food was average at best. We were then asked straight away if we’d be ordering anything else or did we want our bill. Will not be back.

    Tried to phone numerous of times to tell them we were going to be late (taxi cancelled) no answer, we arrive to be told our table was given away, explained our situation, was given the table we had booked, sat waiting for over 30mins until the table next to us told us to just leave, food was raw, some cold dishes, food orders missing… they had all eaten bar one of the group who’s food came an hour later. Totally ignored by the staff, went on to have an amazing meal at Australasia. Wouldn’t waste your time going!

    Very aesthetically pleasing, great for a new insta pic. All staff I spoke to were nice. However in general not the most attentive. Ordered our food and it wasn’t until about 10-15minutes later that we were told there wasn’t any chicken burgers left which we both ordered so we had to pick something else. The menu only had 4 large plates so there wasn’t much else to choose from. I might add a few minutes later 2 ladies did get burgers and about an hour later I saw another leave the kitchen. Anyways, the online menu is not the same as in the restaurant so forget trying to plan your meal. Once we got round to reordering and actually eating we had waited an hour and a half for food in total. Not ideal when we had a show to go to after eating. Cocktails were not good. Very watered down. Salmon was very over cooked. The 202 fries, prawns and mac and cheese were quite nice actually which brought the overall experience up. The acting manager on the night (lady with blonde braids) was really sweet and handled things as best she could. Her service did make up for things a bit. However the general organisation/ management of the place was poor. If the night had gone smoother my rating would be much higher because as I said the food wasn’t actually bad other than the salmon.

    Overall a bad experience. Told they had stopped serving food, for them to take out chicken burgers to a bigger table spending more money 45 mins later. Argumentative staff. Very limited drink and food menu. Decor is dirty and tatty. Won’t be going back

    Placed looked lovely but some stuff looked like it had been there for ages and was worn. Service at the start was terrible had to ask twice to get served and then waited over 30mins to get drinks as we had to ask twice where they were only to be told after 30mins the bar are on them now. Didn’t stay long as we were moving onto another bar but it has more of a hype than it’s worth
