    Food & service as expected was excellent. Only issue was the noise level which is out of the control of staff., Susan & staff very professional with their service. Highly recommend Graphite. Will be back soon.

    Perfection from start to finish. Staff are knowledgeable,pleasant and care about their food and customers. Menu explained in detail. Servers and bar staff are interested in what you serve and on hand without being fussy. You can choose any combination of courses so you can enjoy your favourites. Brill, venison & short tin and all creative accompaniments were of highest standard. Chicken parfait with chicken skin was a delight. Don't leave without trying Coconut tequila cocktail

    Food was lovely, lots of choice and variety. Would have preferred a later time slot but none available, however, restaurant wasn't busy and other tables were still not being used when we left.

    One of the best restaurants we have been to in a very long time. They were very accommodating to our two boys who have dairy allergies which we were extremely grateful for. The food, both taste and presentation were exceptional and I will highly recommend to everyone.

    Great food, my wife and I opted for small plates and starters, a tapas like meal. Our son had a starter and the venison on our recommendation from a previous visit. All the dishes were excellent and served promptly. The staff are all knowledgeable about the various dishes and their recommendations were good. We shall be back. Only slight downside for me is the music choice which I feel was a bit too upbeat but it didn't spoil our enjoyment.

    The food was great and the service was excellent. They had sold out of a few menu options but that wasn't too much of an issue for us. Only slight disappointment was that I had made a note on the booking that it was a special occasion for a family member. It would have been nice if that had been acknowledged in some way, even just to mention it when arriving, to make the experience perfect.

    The lunch menu choice was excellent and the food definitely lived up to our expectations. What we were hoping to get had sold out as we booked a later lunch sitting, the perfect excuse to go back. The staff were extremely friendly and professional.😀
