    This is the third time my wife and I have been to Core. As usual, everything was outstanding. Pricey, yes. But it's a wonderful experience to visit a restaurant where everyone is at the top of their game. Thanks to all.

    The food was really lovely but sadly the whole thing felt a bit rushed. I personally like to take my time when having a tasting menu but as soon as one dish was finished the next one was there, it’s like they needed the table back. At the end we asked for cheese and were encouraged to sit in the bar for the cheese and further drinks, which we did do, but no one else sat at our table, so we could have stayed there. All in all we had a lovely time but I don’t see how it was any better than 1 star restaurants I’ve been to.

    From the start our experience at Core was nothing but fantastic. From the cocktails in the extremely beautiful bar area, then we were taken to the chef's table for my wife's and our friend's 50th birthday celebrations. The food was nothing but exquisite and at each course a new member of the team came to explain the dish and wine pairings. The staff were professional, well versed and charming with the correct balance of interaction. We have been fortunate enough to dine in many Michelin star restaurants over the years including Thomas Keller's French 3 Michelin star French Laundry and I would honestly say that this surpassed all our previous experiences. Thank you so much to Claire Smyth and her phenomenal team for such a wonderful memory.
