Sat upstairs for the first time and I have to say it was a little bit cramped and noisy. The staff were fantastic as always and the mains were amazing. We were a little disappointed with the size of the starters and the brownie for dessert. When booking next time, I would specify that I would like a seat downstairs.

Wondcrful warm welcome when we arrived at Reggina's on Sunday. Coats all taken to the cloakroom by one of the friendly waiters. Delicious roast lunches with plenty of fresh veg and crispy roast potatoes. Full range of condiments offered. Extra boat of gravy brought on request. Excellent meal all round!

Far to noisy could not have a conversation with people we were with. Tables to close together.

Our favourite spot and go-to every time we get the chance to have a meal out together. Food that gives you the fizz, every time. Unrivalled for me, and at outstanding value or money. The only part I don't particularly like is the way they now appear to direct you towards the bar upstairs prior to seating, as our table "would be ten minutes" when our table was empty and set all along. Not a major, but as drinks from the bar cannot be put on the bill, it is just an awkward intervention and just feels a bit awkward.

We went on a very quiet night after Christmas, with very modest hopes but it was really good. The food was really excellent, lovely fun service and quite a few other diners, so a nice atmosphere. It's a very good place.

Booking system took my booking for a party of six at 2 pm, arrived at 2 pm and we didn't seem to be expected, I was told they closed at 3 pm, we were allowed to stay. Waited half an hour for our main course as the kitchen was obviously winding down, there was no time for a second course as we felt under pressure to leave, staff were clearing all the other tables and resetting for the evening.

Don't take bookings if there isn't time to serve guests properly before closing, service was disappointing food was mediocre and expensive. I wont be going again

Love this restaurant. Service and food is always very good. The only draw back is that it can be drafty and a bit cold - depending on where you sit.

This is such a lovely restaurant. There is a lot of choice in the menu and it never disappoints from the pasta to the steak! We were sat upstairs and had a lovely big table. The lighting is a bit bright which the only thing I would change.

I come here with my wife every 6-8 weeks and am never disappointed.
The figs are amazing and the steak with the Bistecca Reggina a must have.

This was not our first time at the restaurant but on this occasion we were seated at the top of the stairs next to the ladies toilet and directly opposite the bar/disco. We had the restaurant music playing but also the different music from the bar, which wasn’t too bad until the disco started then all chance of conversation was destroyed at our table of seven. It caused us to cut short our evening which was birthday celebrations for our daughter, son and his girlfriend. The only saving grace was the lovely staff and the food as four of the party have to have a gluten free diet!

Have visited here a few times and it never fails to impress. The food is of a high standard yet not overpriced, the staff are attentive without being in your face and the ambiance of the restaurant is welcoming and relaxing, yet lively.

We turned up slightly late but the staff showed us right to our table.

Although they were very busy service was quick and personal and the food was excellent. Will most definitely be returning soon!

We were disappointed, despite arriving on time for our booking, to be told our table was not ready and to have a drink at the bar beforehand. We were seated a few moments later at a table which had been empty and set when we walked in. Otherwise, service was a little slow, but we put this down to it being a very busy night.

I not only highly recommend, but will definitely be returning here again.

On my last visit, my party were late arriving and so understanbly lost our original table, despite it being a very busy evening both the kitchen and front of house put great effort into accommodating us and despite a little wait for us, we all had a fantastic evening with the best food imaginable; they're the best!

It is a good restaurant. The food was good but not worth the price. The service was ok but all server’s attitude was like they would rather be at home with their feet up. I would not go again. Can get better service and food for price at Frankie And Bennys.

A lovely place to spend an evening with good food, atmosphere and service. The only criticism I have, I ordered a rib eye steak with peppercorn sauce, this sauce very often comes in a little jug so that the customer can add as much as is required. Mine came drowned in peppercorn sauce which was very strong tasting and overpowered the flavour of the steak.

Amazing food, very quick service, was busy even for a Tuesday night so would recommend booking even if mid week. The food looked like something from Masterchef and tasted amazing. Loved it and will definitely return.

Our dining experience was made all the better by our lovely waitress whose name if I remember correctly was Ana. She was very friendly, cheerful and accommodating. We took guests with us and they were similarly impressed which pleased us enormously. Thank you.

We went for my wifes birthday, it was a party of 5, three teens/20's and 2 older. We had a drink in the upstairs bar first, good selection of wines at reasonable prices. Our table had lots of room, not cramped in at all. Service was excellent, sadley I didn't get our two waiters names, but they were both excellent. The specials board was explained in detail and the knowledge of both food and drinks was very good. Waiting times were good, food was excellent, good size portions for all courses. The bil was actually pretty good, it's not a cheap restaurant, but I came away thinking we had got really good value for the money we spent. Atmosphere was lovely, the staff clearly enjoy spending time with the guests to explain the menus, drinks and the "ethos" if the service there...a brilliant meal out, well done .

Table for 2 was on first floor next to stairs so was always busy with staff and other diners walking past and up and down the stairs which was a bit distracting however I guess as we booked late could not complain about that.

Lovely friendly restaurant, reasonably expensive but worth it. Portion size just right. Table are quite close together and can be a bit noisy but no more than most restaurants. Would definitely recommend this place and will be making a return visit.

Me and my boyfriend recently went here on a date night and it exceeded our expectations. Love the bar and strawberry daiquiris were the best! Starter and mains were good and a decent portion (no room left for dessert). Will definitely be returning soon, thank you for a very relaxing and pleasant evening!
