    Unfortunately incredibly slow service and there were only 4 other tables eating.... I had to ask 3 times a reminder to bring tap water that was offered ... on 3 separate occasions. Why not put some on the table? Slow to take order, drinks very slow to arrive, food also slow. Sides to main came out long after main dish and also cold. Order placed through wrong so didn't recieved what we wanted. Food was ok but nothing special. Quite dissapointed

    Nice venue and prices reasonable, but the service was slightly over zealous. They were asking what water we wanted before we even got our coats off or sat down. And we were asked the same questions by different staff members. The food was okay, but my crab which according to the menu was served with focaccia sadly never arrived. I found it very odd that they served a fish pie topped with a big shell on prawn and served nothing to clean your hands with and the menu said smoked fish, prawns and gratinated potato, which would, I suggest ,lead most people to think the prawns would be served in the pie and the gratinated potato was just all sauce and no potato. The broccoli was also over cooked and half the size portion of the winter greens. I expect more from a restaurant so sadly have no plans to return.

    Bit underwhelming to be honest. Wine was good seafood tagliatelle was superb but the rest was underwhelming and not great value. I’m sure what I would call undercooked prawn and scallops are probably the ‘correct’ way to serve them but I like my seafood cooked through. Lager left a chemical taste in the mouth. Sorry not for us again.

    Quite frankly I was very disappointed with our time at flute. We arrived a few minutes after our booking and our table still wasn’t ready and we ended waiting over 15 minute for the table which was not cleaned properly and incredibly sticky. The starters were okay but I’m not sure how you can mess up plain prawns with a Marie Rose sauce. Our mains came fairly quickly but were mediocre at best, what made things worse was that we were given no cutlery and had to wait over 10 minutes for someone to come over so our food was cold by the time we got to eat it. Desserts were again disappointing. Just chucked on a plate with no care. My lemon meringue pie had no meringue only cream so again not what I expected. And the house wine was practically undrinkable. I don’t think I will be returning which is such a shame because I had such high hopes for Flute

    Lovely lunch, enjoyed all our courses. Service was great, lovely atmosphere. We’d definitely go back again, so lovely to have another seafood restaurant open up in Bath 😊 My only comment was that we weren’t told about the specials of the day, but heard others being told about them. Would have liked the choice!

    Had lunch here on Friday last, using a 50% off voucher I’d bought on Boxing Day. The food was OK, but the service was terribly slow (and the restaurant was almost empty)! Cocktails were rather weak. Overpriced and rather lacking in warmth/atmosphere. Maybe relying on the passing trade on George St. but we won’t be rushing back, I’m afraid.

    This is a 2 star review when really it should be a 0. Our evening was only partially saved by the waiting staff who were gallantly trying to make amends for the kitchen who had clearly thought they could knock out a 100 covers of Valentine's 'specials' with only 1 chef + 1 kitchen porter. As it was we waited 2 hours for bland uncooked fish and chips/vegetables/everything over salted. Waiting staff did their best to ply us with free drinks, but it had the desperate air of a string quartet playing on the deck of the Titanic. By the end of the evening strangers were resorting to sharing bread between tables to stave off the hunger. If you're thinking of going to the Fawlty Towers stage show you could save yourself a ticket and get the fully immersive experience at Flute in Bath.

    Bit disappointing. Went for valentine dinner.. £55 a head set course menu each. Portions small.. service slow, unclear on menu that some of the courses were sharing plates? Which caused confusion, as staff didn’t inform us and not shown on menu. And other waiting staff showed us another menu?

    Unfortunately not a great experience. The fish was off. They replaced it with a different dish free of charge and that dish was good but it rather put us off. Service was slow and whilst the staff were very nice it did feel they lacked training. It took a while to get their attention. It also feels expensive for what you’re getting. Hopefully things will improve soon.

    The restaurant was really lovely and food was delicious. The staff were incredibly attentive. It is open until 2am for cocktails. We sadly couldn't stay late but it was a shame that it was quite quiet when we left at 11pm. Maybe more advertising is needed for the cocktail bar because it's lovely. Will definitely return.

    Generla lack of organisation between all non cooking staff. Missed starters, no discussion between maitre'ds on table locations or how to manage the rooms. Lack of knowledge of the menu and ingrediants. Incorrect bill. Menu too small and light on content. Suggests there is no training or experiances staff in place

    All our food was delicious and well presented but perhaps a little pricey for the portion sizes - especially the fries. Service was initially a tad slow, but picked up throughout the meal. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, and overall a lovely enjoyable lunch.

    For a lunch promotion deal of 2 courses for less than £18, you’d expect the portion would be reduced … nope! I was so stuffed! I ordered fish soup as starter, it was delirious; and had skate wing for my main, it was nicely cooked. Service was really good, we were very happy with the meal, will def go again.

    The food was really good, however the portion size of the boil (pot of sea food for 2) was really small, it should have been double that size. The prices were too high, for a piece of fish (you have to buy the side separately) you are looking at £30 for a plate, the service, although friendly, was slow especially the drinks. Nice food, if you aren’t hungry and you have plenty of money to throw at a night out, it is fine.

    We had been exited about a new seafood restaurant opening in bath after Loch Fyne an Fishworks closed but had read some negative reviews so were concerned it was not going to be good! However, my wife and I prefer to judge for ourselves so booked a table for a Saturday lunchtime for our anniversary just before New Years Eve. We found the service was brilliant with our waiter knowing about all the dishes. We had a nice table. Courses arrived promptly, (there weren’t many people in as it was 12.30pm), but ambience was still nice with great music playing in the background. Oysters were fine and mains delicious. I had some fab craft beer I’d never heard of! All in all we’re both had a lovely experience. We’ll come back and I hope everyone who had a disappointing time tries again.

    Delicious Aranchini starter followed by the Hake my wife had the Mackerel Pate and there was a very generous helping ... enough for me to have some as well, followed by the Linguini which was delicious and also a very generous serving, so I got to sample that as well. Lovely Grillo wine to accompany it. Really nice unstuffy and friendly atmosphere I'm sure it is going to be a great success.

    Extremely disappointing second time there. 40 mins waiting for drinks. Meant to be a birthday meal. Nothing. Stale bread. Mackerel starter tasty. Mussels very overpriced and not particularly tasty.Cod also very overpriced for size of dish.I starter,2 mains, 2 glasses of wine. No dessert £100! Not particularly busy but unacceptably slow. Had to go to the bar after half an hour to ask if our drinks were coming. No apology.
