Sunday brunch with Prosecco was really good value . Great service and no shortage of Prosecco. It was great to have a choice of 4 dishes on the 3 courses. Was never rushed and was great to relax with a nice brandy and cocktail after the meal. Will definitely be coming back.

The service was very mixed and the waitress found it difficult to understand our order. We ordered an alcohol free beer but a gluten free beer came, when we brought this to the attention of the waitress she said that they had no alcohol free beer although it was on the menu.
The food was poorly seasoned and generally uninteresting. However, the steaks were very good. I also thought it was very expensive for a below average meal.

Lovely meal, ambience and service! Food marked down only very very slightly due to the ‘alternative’ style dessert, cheesecake was a jade coloured dome 🤷‍♀️ but everything else was first class,

Food was not great. Service was good. Camembert came out twice not cooked through, sent back and still got charged for it. Place was loud and Leary.
Waiter was lovely though.

Service was poor, 4 at the table and starters came out with only 3 brought out. We were all having the same thing. Had to ask 5 times for the start ter to be brought out asking 2 staff twice. The toilets were filthy, for a luxury restaurant this was way below standards expected. Other tables seemed to get more attention from staff as though we were being discriminated against. Was our money not good enough?

The location and inside were wonderful. The staff who looked after taking your coats and taking and serving the drinks orders were very good and attentive. The food was lovely, and could not ask for anything more, but this was let down by the service of the waiting staff. We had to ask on at least two occasions throughout the night for the staff to come and take our orders, for mains and then again for starters. But apart from this the premises, setting, decor and food were lovely, we will go back again and hopefully the service will be a better.

Good location, and a really nice atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the food/menu. Enjoyed the food that we had, and can't wait to return and sample something different from the menu.

As a new/ trendy new addition to Birmingham I was shocked at the lack of choice of vegetarian/ vegan options. There was one thing on the menu labelled vegan, which was a side of potatoes. I hadn't checked this before I booked as I assumed that there would at least be one main I could eat - even if it meant taking something off it.

The place was fairly empty when we arrived at 9:30 which is completely fine, however we were seated at a tiny two table right next to the till/ waitress point so felt like we were constantly being interupted (not physically but the awareness of someone being behind me).

The service was good, they were attentive but not over bearing so I can't fault that at all.
The food we did have was lovely, just a shame we couldn't have had more - we ended up with 2 starters and a few sides.

Inside interior is lovely and finished to a high standard - location is also great as your right next to the mailbox and the cube so plenty of bars to move onto after eating.

Excellent restaurant where you can get hands down the best steak in Birmingham. The setting is decorated so elegantly and attention to detail is spot on, very kind and attentive staff from the minute you walk through the door. New place for me for sure

We waited for an hour and 10 mins for just our starters. I didn’t enjoy my mains, the chicken was under cooked and bland (maybe rushed due to knowing our starters were delayed.)
Can’t comment on dessert, we skipped it.
