    This was the second time I've been to Taylor & Clay, and I was right to go back. A thoroughly enjoyable and delicious meal with a great background atmosphere. Background dance music was a little loud for my liking but it didn't spoil anything. I might suggest lowering the volume a tad in the restaurant while keeping it loud in the adjacent bar area, where the dj was.

    The food was terrific. Desserts can always be a bit bigger. The price of the food was steep enough...our meal for three was over £160!!! But that includes some drinks, desserts and coffees. There were several large parties in, all seated very near to our table. One of our party was bumped by waiting staff on several occasions. Our table could have been sited away a bit more from the long table and this would have helped us enjoy our experience much more. Also, being so close to large groups meant that we were often having to shout to hear each other. When drinks were brought to the table, these were just set down and the waitress walked away without ensuring that the drinks were suitable or beside the right person. The espresso martini was disappointing...hardly any head on the drink and a very watery offering. My wine glass was slightly spilt on arrival and drops of red wine just missed my clothing on first sip. This could be improved and certainly we had noticed it to be less good than previous visits. The chefs are amazing and we thanked them for the fabulous food as we left. Shame that some of the other aspects of our expensive meal out were a let down.

    I heard brilliant reports about this restaurant, located in bullit just off church lane in Belfast. The ambience and food was spectacular. I had a sirloin steak and the jumper Sauvignon blanc was also really good quality. I will definitely be back! The staff were so attentive and made the evening even better. There was a girl with blonde hair who served us. I didn’t catch her name but made me and my fiancé feel very welcome. I had a great experience.

    One of the best steaks I have ever had, so glad I went. The service from the girl (she was blonde I didn’t catch her name) was great, she was very attentive and was clearly very happy which shown through. I throughly enjoyed my meal. Looking forward to my next trip to Belfast as I will be going back.

    Lovely meal at Taylor and Clay. Service was superb-didn’t catch their names but the female waitress and male front of house were both very pleasant and helpful. All 3 courses were beautiful but special mention to the gorgeous steaks-both cooked to perfection! Lovely bottle of house red wine at a very reasonable £25 too. Gorgeous meal, wine and cocktails. Great atmosphere too and very busy too. Highly Recommend

    Potatoes were obviously microwaved as they were chewy on the outside and really hot on the inside. The rest of the dish was cold. Ordered two desserts and only one arrived. To make it worse they tried to charge for the one that didn’t arrive.
