Excellent food and service
I must say, this could quite possibly be the best dining experience I’ve ever had. Five of us had the tasting menu and every single one of the six courses was exquisite! The food is so delicately prepared and presented and each dish looked like a work of art, and tasted even better than it looked. The service was friendly, professional and honestly delightful. It was a special celebration dinner and this was the perfect pick for it - I certainly felt special in this wonderful restaurant with beautiful food. Could not recommend highly enough!
We've been here several times now and the food is always exceptional.
Perfect food and perfect service - could not have been bettered!
The finest dining with some of the best flavours I've ever tasted. Truly exceptional food with service to match.
Not our usual food choice, but the taste experience was wonderful. Flavours and foods I would not necessarily have opted for, but the tasting menu was wonderful. We will definitely be back!
Super food with delicious flavours. Very good value lunch as 2 for 1 offer.
First time customer for Birthday meal- quite exceptional. Had taster menu and was quite faultless.
Would thoroughly recommend for foodies, will definitely dine there again when next in Bath
Very attentive and friendly staff. Went for my wife’s birthday and they made her feel very special. Had the tasting menu which was excellent value for money. Interesting and tasty food
Great food in relaxing but luxurious surroundings. Attentive staff but not intrusive. And if course the food was excellent so good that we forgot to take a photo of our main course! Will definitely be back.
Excellent food, charming and efficient service, calm and pleasing ambience - what's not to like? It being my wife's birthday, a beautiful chocolate greeting emerged unexpectedly from the kitchen which was a peak taste experience in itself.
Excellent staff, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We had the six course tasting menu with paired wines. The food was delicious and delightfully presented and the wines matched perfectly. All served in a charming setting, would definitely visit again.
The food here was excellent, as was the service. The only negative was the mark up on the drinks, for example £17 for a gin and tonic, making it the most expensive place I’ve ever visited for drinks.
Fantastic first time to Dan Moon restaurant. We were there for the lunch menu. Although limited (like any lunch menu), it made us choose foods we wouldn't necessarily choose from a full menu. The food was exquisite. The lamb neck fillet for main with garlic risotto was delicious. What made the experience for us was the gentleman who was front of house. (Our visit was lunchtime 09.06.18). He was provided astounding service from start to finish. Very knowledgeable about wines and passionate about the food. Absolutely fantastic value for money.
Really enjoyed the tasting menu and service was excellent
Perfection! Stunning flavour & texture combinations. Friendly professional service.
We had a 6 course tasting menu with wine. We enjoyed the food a lot. All the dishes were very good. Although, none of them was exceptional. Unfortunately, the wine pairing was only decent. I didn't like that all dishes from the tasting menu were also available a la carte.
We were celebrating our anniversary in Dan Moon restaurant. We got complimentary chocolates with a "Happy anniversary" text written with chocolate mousse. It was a nice touch from the restaurant.
Went for the tasting menu, which is just right in terms of size. And the flavours is definitely quite exquisite. We thoroughly enjoy the dinner - food and service are really top notch.
lovely food and wine, great service, beautiful surroundings
Superb occasion as usual. Thank you service attentive but not intrusive and food elegantly presented. Flavours blended so well.
We had lunch once again and as usual the service, the food, the wine and the ambience were superb. Before leaving we booked to return the following week.
The meal was extremely good and my wife whose birthday it was had a great evening.
We had taken our 13 year old some and he enjoyed the fine dining as much as we did.
Will certainly return again
We started in the bar with champagne cocktails to celebrate my wife's birthday which were imaginative and delicious. The waiter gave us the lunch menu so that we had plenty of time to make our choices. We had a choice of where to sit in the dining room. The service was attentive but not 'over the top'. The food was delicious and very well presented. We had opted for the 2 for 1 lunch and it was very good value. Staff had a good balance of friendliness and professional.
Une serveuse d’une gentillesse inouïe et un sommelier passionné et expert dans son domaine. Merci à tous les deux pour ce moment magique que vous nous avez fait passer
Awesome experience, lovely staff, great food. We will definitely be returning 😬
A great dining experience which was perfect for us and our guests.
Our meal was sublime. I am always wary of tasting menus as the chef can be too self-indulgent and the food becomes over elaborate and the flavours confused. This was not the case here - everything was beautifully co-ordinated and the variety of textures and flavours harmonious. I thought the tasting menu was excellent value for money given the intricacy of the food and hours required to prepare it. Service was excellent.
We had lunch to celebrate my husbands birthday.The staff were amazing,nothing was too much trouble for them.The food was superb,we recommend taking coffee in the beautiful canvas room after lunch,where we were made to feel we could stay and relax as long as we wished.we will definitely visit again and highly recommend a visit .
Super surroundings and great food. The staff were excellent. We will come again
Never disappoints, food and service just outstanding!
The bread basket was amazing and all dishes were lovely - we did make one complaint about the main course, and this was professionally handled and well managed by the staff. Just goes to show it's sometimes not a case of never messing up, but handling it well when it happens. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Another wonderful meal. Lovely staff. A great way to enjoy excellent food with excellent service in a relaxing evening. Everything was perfect.
A true five star experience. Lunch was superb. Every course was exquisitely presented and tasted wonderful. Highly recommended.
Another much enjoyed lunch with an old friend. Really good to have plenty of time to enjoy three excellent courses and to catch up in a calm and pleasant environment. Customer service especially good. Thank you Gareth so much. I am just very sad that due to hotel policies we will be unable to celebrate our Golden Wedding lunch and our eldest granddaughter's 17th birthdayhere as well. As we are a party of over 8 (there are 9 of us) and therefore have to choose exactly the same starter, main, and desert (we have 2 coeliacs and 2 non red meat eaters plus 1 diabetic) it means we have to book elsewhere. So disappointing. It would have been for a Sunday lunch and it didn't occur to that this would be problematic. Luckily I have been able to find an alternative venue.
Really enjoyed the very attentive service by staff and excellent food. Very comfortable surroundings
Another lovely meal at The Gainsborough. Great staff who were friendly and professional.
Fabulous lunch menu, extras came out for my mum as we were celebrating her birthday.
Mr Moon certainly knows how to cook !
The best food I have eaten for 50 years a good choice to celebrate a Golden Wedding Anniversary
A fantastic dining experience. The food cooked to perfection with excellent attentive staff. Can’t wait to return.
This is the kind of meal where every dish looks stunning and each element to each dish is perfection. The bread is by far the best bread I've ever tried in any resturant I've eaten in. Even my own 😂😂😂
