Pity it was so quiet - almost empty, and the maintenance people were hanging around (surveying?!) but otherwise good.

What a beautiful venue with fabulous friendly staff. Any queries we had were answered and recommendations were also suggested. Only two minor downsides, we were too late for breakfast so if that is why you want check the timings and the toilets were all out of service so we had to go trooping through the store to find alternative toilets

Having tried the food here before and loving it decided to take my friend for his birthday. We were kept waiting twenty minutes without explanation as to why the table we had booked two weeks in advance wasn’t ready. Furthermore there was hardly any apologies. Must say beautiful decor, good food but the service needs to work hard to be real “Selfridge standards”! Plus a note to the lady working on the front desk really would be lovely to be greeted with a smile!

Third great meal here. Two lunches and one dinner.
Lunch was a better experience as the background music was at a low level and gave a great ambience.
The evening meal music was far too loud and we had to shout throughout the meal, even though I'd asked for the music level to be lowered so that we could hear each other.
Overall, recommended!

Very noisy, had to ask for volume to be turned down despite three of us being on a table sized for 1.5. No point in moving as told other tables noisier. Either bad waiting staff or music too loud for them to hear orders as drink and food wrong. Food OK, but you are paying for something else. Great if you want to admire the decor and enjoy cool music.

The picture on the advert doesn’t do this restaurant justice, the restaurant was elegantly designed.
Food was very nice and service. For some of us that don’t know the meaning of barrata (it’s cheese) which I don’t eat but was put together nicely on the menu, tempting to order until it my dish arrived. Maybe be best to ask the waiter to explain a dish before you order..my starter was replaced with a nice scallop dish..
Overall, a nice experience and my friends fancy going back for brunch..👍😊

It was my second time in the Brasserie.
Everything was great apart from loud music ( really difficult to have a conversation ) , if it was a little quieter it would be perfect !
I hope you can take this remark on board as I would like to come more often

Shocking service from start to finish with staff who did not seem to understand how to work in a restaurant or have any concept of how a restaurant makes money

Had to wait for ages for our table. We could have been seated at the bar drinking (and earning the restaurant money) while we waited but instead were abandoned at the entrance for around 10 minutes.

After being seated it took around 15-20 minutes to have a drinks order taken. I ended up having to make ‘gasping’ expressions at the waiter to get him to serve us.

Food arrived semi warm. Despite being asked how I wanted my salmon cooked and requesting rare, it was over cooked suggesting it has been sitting on the pass for a while.

Sat with our dirty plates on the table for ages. The ladies at the table next to us actually called over the staff to get them to remove the plates from our starters.

Asked for coffees but were then told they were cleaning the machine and we couldn’t have them. They offered us tea instead which I accepted, only for them to charge us for both tea and coffee on our bill.

This is a beautiful restaurant with so much potential. But it is unacceptable for a restaurant from a group like Caprice to even contemplate opening with such appalling service or training. The experience was more like the opening night of a restaurant launched by a bunch of complete novices.

Gorgeous ambience and spectacular environment - art deco and pegasus!! Food was very interesting but our starter portions were so generous, was really hard to do justice to the main.

Service was super-swift and charming BUT there was hardly a break between first and second course I think it could have been managed in a slightly less frenetic way which would have helped with our digestion!

We would, nevertheless return, and soon, as was a really great all round experience.

Beautiful restaurant, excellent menu with a lot of choice and the food was good. The only down side is the front of house. I found them to be quite snobby and rude. They need some attitude adjustment. I hope that happens soon. Would love to go back but will think twice about it due to that.

Serviced rushed
Tables crammed
Mixed our orders
Couldn't remember what each of us were heaving
Asked us 3 times if we wish to order wine. We understood first time and said no we are non drinkers.
Very loud so difficult to have a comfortable conversation
Staff polite and professional but a bit nonchalant and not very warm

We arrived and was seated promptly, our waiter was very helpful but I do have to say another waiter came over to pour our champagne, he didn't ask us if we would like to try it and he poured it so quickly that there was a lot of overspill. he walked away and our waiter had to hunt the bottle, it felt like I was in a Bond movie and he was not really the waiter ( weird ) The table we're placed vey close together and I'm not a big person but even I had to move the table to get out.

Doorman- very lovely and made conversation each time we came in and out
Hostess ( two women greeting on entry, very endearing
General waitress who spent much time walking the floor - very rude and obnoxious and completely brought down the level of service other staff were try to maintain,
Other waiting staff, excellent and chatty


Only reason for fault was one member of staff
