Salt and Pepper Squid

Classic French chicken and garlic sausage cassoulet with white haricot beans
Crispy chicken breast, lettuce, tomatoes, house sauce
Second time I’ve been (after the first I thought ‘I’ve got to come back here!’) Staff are really friendly, but not over familiar. The manager is very present and attentive. The food is worth the price charged, (not cheap, but not madly expensive), and I love the live music.
Excellent service and the food was really tasty: had the salt and pepper squid and cassoulet, both delicious. Wines were expensive, possibly due to increase in import duties, but overall we were delighted with Cinquieme.
Very comfortable surroundings that complimented the fine food and drinks
A delicious meal with a good live band playing at a good sound level.
The service was very slow, which didn't matter as we were there supporting the band but would have been annoying if we were only out for a meal.
This was my first time visiting and there was only 2 of us. I'd be very hesitant to go back. Service was slow for our drinks and starters but it was a Saturday night so we were forgiving. We'd waited around 30-40mins for our mains which was a long time especially considering we'd only ordered a vegan burger and chicken wrap. The tables near us got their mains before us despite being more complex meals and arriving later. After another 10 mins or so I asked our waiter if our food was coming, he checked the kitchen then informed us and apologised saying our food would be another 10 minutes. I asked why it's taken so long for a burger and wrap and he said the kitchen had lost our ticket! He offered us a free drink. I understand this isn't the waiter fault but equally, he should've been more assertive and noticed we were sat there without main meals. Eventually we got our food and much to my disappoint, my top burger bun was rock solid on the outside and soggy in the middle so I couldn't eat it and it had tomatoes & onions in when I had asked for none when initially ordering. I showed the waiter the burger bun when we came to collect our plates but nothing was said. I appreciate the free drink but really, we should have been offered a discount or given our meals for free because half of mine was inedible and the other one certainly wasn't worth waiting nearly an hour for!
Amazing food. Beautiful restaurant and atmosphere. Attentive and friendly staff. The entertainment was 10/10 too.
Only stupid small thing, scatter cushions would be nice on the long bench seats / booths to make more comfortable when you’re there for the whole evening.
The first point to make is that this Restaurant is part of the Hollywood Bowl complex. Either I didn't notice this when looking through options in High Wycombe or it wasn't mentioned in the Open Table description, not ideal for a business meeting more a casual bite to eat.
On arrival, the place was empty so we had the full attention of the staff who were very helpful, turned the music volume down and did everything they could to make us comfortable.
The food selection was casual dining, although looked a lot more impressive in the photos. After a bit of mix up in ordering the food was acceptable for the price paid.
In future, I will do more research and not rely on just what is advertised in Opentable. I guess if you know the restaurant Opentable is good to book online. If you do not then always use other resources to research.
For a casual dining experience when in town, the restaurant was fair. Opentable needs improving.
Food was excellent. Freshly cooked, great portions and tasty.
Staff were friendly, helpful and the atmosphere and ambience was lovely. We visited as a family of 2 adults and 2 younger teenagers and they really enjoyed it.
Great looking place and a nice relaxed atmosphere. The choice of food and drinks is good and tastes amazing although a little pricey. But the staff are helpful, friendly and efficient.
The place is prettily decked out and in a good location. It’s been so not many people were there at a Tuesday lunchtime , so no ambiance . The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was quite slow to come but I had ordered something that required long cooking so maybe that was it. Teenagers had Crispy AF burgers and Piri-Piri fries which they liked. Also Orio milkshakes which were gorgeous but small. I ate lamb raging which was exceptionally good and had it with a really nice white burgundy. The staff explained that this is a new independent restaurant with High Wycombe being it’s current only location. A great new addition to High Wycombe’s eateries.
Hi Susy, Many thanks for your custom and a great in depth review. We are glad you enjoyed the food, drinks and the ambience. This definitely is becoming a great new addition to High Wycombe’s eateries especially in Eden Shopping Centre. We look forward to hosting you again. Regards, Cinquieme Management
The atmosphere was very welcoming.
The food was tasty.
Hi Hazel, Thanks for your custom the 5 star review of the restaurant. We are glad you enjoyed the food and the ambience. We look forward to serving you again. Regards, Cinquieme Management
Cinquieme is an amazing restaurant. Food is lovely the atmosphere is simply beautiful. The reason I knocked one star off is because the presence of the staff was a bit too much for me. I appreciate the attention but it was a bit too much for me. Having said that I will still go back as cannot fault anything else. Thank you very much for the lovely evening 😊
Many thanks for your custom and feedback. We are glad you enjoyed the food, drinks and the ambience. We have taken your feedback on board and we look forward to hosting you again. Regards, Cinquieme Management
We bailed out - noise level from live band just outlandishly deafening.
Great main course and having the singer made it even better!
Wonderful performers, great service, incredible ambience and delicious food. For a lovely night, where you have all the care and attention of the staff, and get to feel elegant and relaxed throughout the night.
Came with a friend for a meal before a film next door and the food and drinks were lovely! Would 100% recommend if you are thinking about going! Also was informed about the live music on Friday and Saturday nights
The team there were amazing and checked in with us on the food and drink, will be returning as it was a very pleasant evening :)
Hi Abigail, Thanks for your custom and we greatly appreciate your kind review. Cinquieme offers a unique and vibrant dining experience compared to the national operators. Additionally we have live music performances scheduled on every Fri/Sat evenings. À Bientôt. Cinquieme Management
Not too bad improvement on food and service could be made
Hi Sarah, Thanks for your custom and review. Cinquieme offers a unique and vibrant dining experience compared to the national operators and is constantly improving the offering. Look forward to serving you again. Cinquieme Management
Great service, loved the ambience of the place and the food was amazing - the pricing is a tad weird as some starters are more expensive than some mains but I would gladly order the same things again! (Sweet Tempura Prawns and Jerk Chicken Wrap)
Hi Peter, Thanks for your custom and we greatly appreciate your sterling review. Our mission is to offer unique and vibrant dining experience compared to the national operators. We have live music performances scheduled on every Fri/Sat evenings. À Bientôt. Cinquieme Management
Delicious food. Nice atmosphere. Overall really good value.
Hi Frances, Many thanks for your custom and excellent feedback. We have live music every Fri/Sat evening through July-August 2021. Look forward to serving you again. Cinquieme Management
Took 40 mins to take our order and then a following 2 hours for our meals.
We ordered a 2nd glass of coke and never recieved it. The waiter did appologise about the wait and removed the service charge from the bill but overall extremly slow and incompetent
Hi Lewis, Thanks for your custom and taking the time out to leave the feedback. We are sorry that your experience was not up to your expectations. Most of our customers tend to relax and enjoy the entertainment and meal but some do request express service as they have bookings for theatre or are in a hurry. Please do request an express service next time and we'll endeavour to serve you much quicker. Hope you will revisit us and we look forward to serving you again. Cinquieme Management.
ame here for a Father’s Day meal with my family and I must say the service was appalling to say the least. From being seated and our drinks being taken, to then wait another 15mins or so for our food orders to be taken because apparently both could not be done together!
Ordered nachos as one of our starters and it had to be sent straight back because it was absolutely inedible, I’m sorry I forgot to take a picture of it! It was swimming in liquid! When the waiter took it back to the kitchen, you can hear the chef inside swearing saying what the f&@k is wrong with it! Definitely made me feel uncomfortable and I thought about leaving from that point! But decided to still stay as everyone else on the table wanted to give it another chance!
It then took another hour or so for our mains to arrive or should I say have it to come out.
The 2 hours we were there for was the worst, from the service to the food being OK! I will most definitely be not returning.
They need more STAFF, cause clearly that was an issue with only 2 people trying to serve between at least 8-10 tables and most customers having to also wait ages for their meals.
The manager also needs to speak his staff better because from we’re we was seated next to the kitchen, you can hear him having a go at them for ringing the bell more than once to come for the food!
Thanks for visiting us and leaving the feedback. We apologize for your experience Nichelle. There was an unplanned staffing issue on Sunday which created pressure on kitchen and front of house staff. We have put contingency measures in place to ensure this doesn't happen again and the staff members involved have been disciplined. Why not visit us on Fri-Sat evenings when we have live music performances. Cinquieme Management
The menu is completely different when you get to the restaurant from what we see ONLINE advertised . I went there because of the menu presented here and on their website. A bit of a disappointment to be honest. They said they are aware of that , but why it has been actioned ?????????????? I cannot say we got robbed because the food we had was really nice and shamelessly the staff were truly friendly and their managers .
Thanks for visiting us and taking the time to leave the feedback. We apologize for any inconvenience caused due to the multiple menu offerings. Put simply, we have an all day menu and an evening special menu (Wed-Sunday). We provide an amazing customer service and experience especially over the weekend. We highly recommend you to visit us on Fri-Sat nights when the live music performances are on. Hope to serve you again. Cinquieme Management
This place is great! The food is delicious (you can order the standard menu from JustEat as well so give it a try) BUT I encourage you to eat at the restaurant and try their daily specials menu as well. The atmosphere and staff are lovely. This is my new favourite place to eat!
Thanks for visiting us and leaving the great feedback. We have an all day menu and an evening special menu (Wed-Sunday). We are glad you loved the ambience and additionally we have live music performances on most Fri-Sat evenings. Hope to see you then. Cinquieme Management
Waiter dropped the food before serving us. Then it took extra time to bring food for one person, whilst others had to wait. Then they charged us 12.5% if service charge too. It could have been a nice evening out but it went disaster.
Thanks for visiting us and leaving the feedback. We have an all day menu and an evening special menu (Wednesday-Sunday). We are sorry for the delay in service but it stems from some guests in a party ordering from special menu and others choosing the all day menu. We have passed on your comments to the kitchen team who have worked on a solution to this. Hope to serve you again. Cinquieme Management
The all day menu items tasted okay and were reasonably priced but the three of us that orders from the other menu were left disappointed. Very very small portions, one small stuffed chicken bread with half a potato for £14.99!!! The steak was poor quality for 19.99. Then the added service charge of 12.5 percent was added which was on the menu but the place didn’t offer a particular great service to receive it.
Thanks for visiting us and leaving the feedback Sazeem. We have an all day menu and an evening special menu (Wed-Sunday) which is designed over 3 courses. The special menu focuses on quality and the quantity is based on serving the 3 course option. We provide an amazing customer service and experience especially over the weekend. Nevertheless we have passed on your comments to the chef. Hope to serve you again. Cinquieme Management
I went to this restaurant with three of my friends for the first time last night and there were a few things that unimpressed us. Starting with probably the most important - the food. The starters met our standards and we were happy with them. However the main course was not amazing. Three of us ordered a steak which was a very affordable price so we were not expecting anything astonishing. However none of the three were cooked properly. I requested for my steak to be cooked medium and it came out a light shade of grey, and looked very similar to how you would want a beef burger cooked. The other two steaks were requested to be rare and medium rare. The rare one came out medium and the medium rare and looked well done. As I said I cannot complain about the quality of the meet as it was very affordable (£20) but none of them were cooked how we requested. The other person in our party ordered the nachos and they had quite obviously just been heated in the microwave so understandably she was not impressed with her meal. Most of our drinks came out perfect, however, staff need more training on how much they should fill up a glass. My friend ordered two glasses of Prosecco, one glass was 1/4 full and the second one was 3/4 full but she paid the same price for both of them. The two waitresses were really lovely and we enjoyed their company. However the waiter, who I think could have been the manager? Was very full on and kept interrupting our conversations with random facts or just random conversation. One positive thing I can mention is the atmosphere. The singer was impressive and the general vibe of the restaurant was lovely - really pretty and a massive upgrade from frankie and bennies.
Top tier service, brilliant cocktails, nice ambience, good food.
For me it's just a shame that most of the menu is burgers and wraps.
I had the special which was a chicken ballotine with lyonnaise potatoes, and very nice it was. I'd like to see more of this 'proper food' to match the service level so I don't have to chance what the special is and fall back on a burger I could eat anywhere.
Didn't know this was here until I searched on OpenTable for somewhere for lunch today. Think they need to do more to publicise themselves. Think it could be fun with more people in there to create an atmosphere. Food was good. I'd describe it was an upmarket TGI's.
Hi DeeDee, Many thanks for your feedback and we're glad you enjoyed it! We had unfortunate timing - opening just before the December lockdown, with some great coverage in the Bucks Free Press and Marlow FM, sadly the timing of the reports meant they were just after we were all told we couldn't eat out anymore! We have a lot planned, with signage throughout the Eden centre, many special events coming and live music on Friday and Saturday evenings - we are looking forward to more guests too!
Very good food and the music was amazing, had a lovely time and would recommend
Had a date with the missus… it was great, amazing visuals and great jazz music playing in the background creating a wonderful ambience.
Service was great and very professional.
Thank you so much for your feedback, we are really excited to now be offering live music on Friday and Saturday evenings, and look forward to having many great nights with our guests!
The atmosphere was great, food was superb and will definitely return when restrictions allow! Also have recommended to all friends!
Entertainment was top notch. Food good. Staff need more experience, will return when lockdown 4 has finished.
The Frank Sinatra singer was great. The food was also good, if a little expensive.
The staff need a little longer to get themselves organised. They need to have a wine list
and the food list being double A4 size and the tall wine glasses cause a problem.
But with time this restaurant will improve.
