    Food was fine but service was shocking. An hour for main courses and then one missing and a cheek to add on 10% service charge. Reality check needed….

    Abbiamo iniziato ad ordinare ma l’antipasto richiesto non era più disponibile , a quel punto abbiamo chiesto se altre cose non fossero più disponibili ed il cameriere un po’ imbarazzato ci ha fatto una lista tra cui: il filetto, la burrata , gli gnocchi e gamberoni . Ho chiesto steak and lobster ma anche la bistecca era finita . Ho chiesto solo l’aragosta ma anche quella era finita !!!! Ci siamo alzati e siamo andati via

    Last night was the first time I actually didn't enjoy my evening. Due to the Easter weekend and dining there on a bank holiday Monday, it was understandable that there would be food items not available. However we were never informed of what was out of stock straight away, which has usually been the case in the past. So after 3 occasions of choosing something and the waiter/s going to and from to find out if something was in stock, started to grind on me. Our waiters swapped out 3 times which was concerning and made me feel like perhaps we were the problem and they didn't want to serve us. Being on table 32 in the corner may have also contributed to the poor table service frequency, however the restaurant wasn't busy at all and we felt seriously neglected by having to look around for long periods of time for a waiter. Empty glasses were not removed when new rounds of drinks were brought to us and overall I got the impression they didn't actually care. The staff were always huddling around the kitchen pass and being loud and joking around (which has never been a problem in the past as that adds to the atmosphere), however last night was at the expense of service and customer neglect set in. We always order courgette fries and last night they were obnoxiously salty, along with the calamari. The rest of the food was fine, however my partners was well below standard in terms of taste and expectations. I've never been one to complain and do my best to give benefit of the doubt as running a restaurant I imagine is no easy task, but last night was by far the worst experience we've had in many years eating there. Whichever manager was duty didn't keep staff in check and we truly felt neglected. As mentioned, it was a bank holiday after Easter weekend so completely understandable that deliveries couldn't be made for food items etc, but we should have been informed at the start instead of constant back and forth with the kitchen.

    Really dissatisfied with the quality of the food last night. It’s not often we go out to treat ourselves to a meal and I was thoroughly disappointed. I had the penne pasta Bolognese and it was taste less.

    I was down visiting my son for the weekend and treating family for a meal. This restaurant was a perfect choice however unfortunately i did have a few issues ... 1/ The tables are too close together 2/ The chateaubriand was not presented or cooked correctly - this was quickly sorted without question and changed to two fillet steaks 3/ Another steak was not cooked as requested. The staff were fabulous, service impeccable and i would definitely go back

    We booked a meal ahead of watching Michael McIntyre at The Arena … hoping to make it a very special evening. We arrived at 5.45 and our order for drinks and food was taken promptly … Gameroni Salmoriglio for me and because they had run out of Filetto al Pepe, a medium fillet for my sister. About 45 minutes later and because our neighbouring diners to either side had received and eaten both their starters and their mains (they placed their orders at the same time as ours), we politely asked about ours. It arrived about 15 mins later … my prawns were luke warm and her steak was rare (I have photos, which I hope to attach) They took hers away, leaving me picking with my prawns which were not enjoyable. They brought a new steak 10 minutes later which was again rare. Finally, they took the latter one back to the kitchen … my sister said it would be okay for them to slice it in half so that they could cook it sufficiently. They brought it back with nothing done to it. As this point, we left most of my prawns and her meal untouched and told the gentleman on reception what had happened and offered to pay for our non alcoholic cocktails, which he said wasn’t necessary. I have never needed to complain about a meal but this was the worst meal we have ever had and as much as we enjoyed the show, the experience really marred the evening out. Shelley Tune PS For some reason, it won’t allow me to update photos. I’ll happily email them if you would like proof of the rareity of the steak

    Everything was perfect, lovely staff, ambiance was great. The food however… calamari was too oily very small portion compared to the portion I had a year ago, filled with deep fried bell peppers. The pizza was extremely oily and the crust was biscuit like, burnt on some parts making it hard, this was the same with the mozzarella garlic bread. Maybe they have better items on the menu but so far it was very disappointing. No value for money. If anything you are paying for the service not the food…

    Oysters were completely tasteless. Prawn linguine was tasteless. It was just cooked linguine with one prawn cut up into small pieces. There was no sauce and it just tasted of nothing. Spaghetti bolognaise virtually had no meat and sauce. The bread and butter pudding was very nice though.
