    We had a voucher for a 3 course bottomless brunch and had a lovely meal and plenty of drinks. The service was excellent and we didn't have to chase to get another drink in fact my wine glass was constantly being topped up for the whole 90 minutes. The ambience wasn't fantastic as it felt like we were sitting in the hotel foyer but I loved the music and decorations and the computerised waiter that delivered our meals was brilliant.
    SOUND CafeResponded 3 days ago
    Dear Tony, Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your bottomless brunch and that the service exceeded your expectations. We appreciate your feedback about the ambience and will take it into consideration for future improvements. We're glad you liked the music, decorations, and our innovative service. We hope to welcome you back soon for another enjoyable dining experience! Kind regards, Guest Services, SOUND Cafe @ The Cumberland

    The service was excellent; the table waiters and waitress were terrific and helpful, and they made our visit. The food is fantastic. I had the steak salad, which was to die for; my wife had the chicken salad, which she said was excellent. The bit we liked best was it was full of real people and not a plastic experience you get in some restaurants this size..... well-done, guys, keep it up; we will be back.
    SOUND CafeResponded 5 days ago
    Dear Greg, Thanks for the kind words on your recent visit to us at SOUND Cafe! We're thrilled you loved the service, the food (that steak salad sounds legendary!), and the rockin' atmosphere. Our amazing serving crew definitely deserve a standing ovation! Hearing they made your visit truly fantastic is the music to our ears. While we're bummed we didn't quite hit all the high notes for a perfect 5 stars, we appreciate your feedback. Is there anything we can do to crank things up to an 11 next time? We're so glad you'll be back! Perhaps you could try one of our other delicious American classics on our menu, or maybe explore our rockin' live music nights for a truly unforgettable experience. Kind regards, Guest Services SOUND @ The Cumberland

    Unfortunately this venue has lost the ambience it had as the Hard Rock Cafe. Entertainment is poor. Change to menu not great either. Won’t be returning again, such a pity as service was very good.
    SOUND CafeResponded 5 days ago
    Dear Dawn, Thank you for your feedback. We understand your disappointment that the atmosphere and menu don't quite capture the same vibe as previously. We're always striving to create a rockin' experience, and it sounds like we missed the mark for you this time. We take your comments about the entertainment and menu very seriously. We're constantly reviewing and evolving, and your feedback helps us ensure we're offering something truly special. While we're sad to hear you won't be returning right now, we'd love another chance to impress you. Perhaps you could check out our website for upcoming events or menu changes that might tickle your fancy? Of course, the fantastic service you mentioned is always a constant here! We hope to see you rock out with us again soon. Kind regards, Guest Services SOUND @ The Cumberland

    What a wonderful time we all had at the bottomless afternoon tea, our waiter Leo was helpful and attentive. Loved we could have wine, beers and soft drinks as well as standard prosecco. The food was lovely and a twist on traditional afternoon tea! Definitely will book again!

    Dear Kelly, We're hitting the high notes thanks to your rave review! Sounds like your Afternoon Tea experience here at SOUND Cafe was truly delightful. Thank you for the huge shout-out to Josh and Raf! Their attentiveness, making sure your glasses were constantly full are definitely part of the superstar service we strive for. We're also thrilled to hear the vegetarian options were "first class" - including special veggie labels is a detail we take pride in! It's fantastic that everyone in your party had a wonderful time. We couldn't agree more – afternoon tea with us is definitely worth a return visit! Or perhaps you'll try our Bottomless Brunch option next time, or explore some of our American classics with one of our live acts in the evening? Thanks again for the amazing review.
