It was very apparent that having booked through open table we would not be served promptly or in time for our theatre performance. It was made very clear that we would have to wait for our food and wait we did. For well over an hour and a half in a barely half full restaurant. Others who came in after us had been served and left by the time our starters arrived. It was only when when we threatened to leave that our food arrived at the table. We didn’t order anything extravagant just lasagne and pizza. Contrast the very poor service with delivery of our food to arrival of the bill a mere 10 seconds after we asked for it and yes I did time it. There are other places to eat in this city that have much better service and respect for their patrons. If you’re happy to wait to be served at the discretion of the staff the food isn’t bad but actually isn’t anything special not special enough for the way we were treated. we will not be revisiting or booking through open table again. I’m really happy to pay for good food and good service but I prefer to eat where I’m treated with a modicum of respect.

My opentable reservation hadn’t been received but they managed to fit 5 of us in dinner on a busy Saturday evening. Service was lovely, friendly, helpful and gave great advice. Would definitely go back.

Staff outstanding, friendly, helpful and efficient. Unfortunately food was a let down. Pasta was over cooked and under seasoned with a distinct lack of chicken. An alternative was offered but as both dishes had same issue we didn't see the point of having anything else. Lactation suited our purpose and staff salvaged the visit. Have eaten in many branches of this chain and it's the only one where the food let us down. Once again a big thanks to all table staff.

Nice bright, light, buzzy restaurant. Was booked for a birthday celebration, asked for a particular seat and got it so was pleased about that. It did take a long time between being seated and our food orders being taken (almost half an hour) but when it arrived the food was good. Would return but at a less busy time probably.
