I've been to Topblade a few times now as the food and service is outstanding. My new favourite place to eat. Highly recommend it.

Nice and quite. Food is amazing. Table might be a bit small but not really an issue. Early bird menu available until 6.30pm

Absolutely delicious steak and fabulous service. Only negative point would be about the sides, notably the creamed spinach which was a little bit watery.

Sadly the steak was over cooked and not just for my order, but the three other carnivore and meat connoisseurs in my party. Restaurant wasn’t busy at all and waiting time I felt was somewhat unreasonable. Furthermore the marketing image of the the multiple ‘blade’ portions didn’t accurately reflect the reality either. Ended up going to Deanes Meatlocker next day to get a real hit of Irish beef. But all that being said the price point was ridiculously low which goes half way in explaining the portion size and overall quality. Steaks in most good restaurants are around £30...not a tenner so I’d happily pay more for a bit care and service.

Me and my boyfriend love Top Blade, with Saturday past being our 3rd time attending in a 6 month period. Our table was booked for 6 and our order was taken promptly, we didn’t even have to look at the menu because we get the same thing each time!

We watched 4 tables food arrive who sat down after us and 50 minutes after ordering I asked a server for an update on our food as we had tickets for a show starting at 7.15 close by and it was turning on 7pm!

Restaurant was relatively busy but all the other tables who sat down after were moving on to/finishing desert. One of the managers came over to tell us as my boyfriend is getting his stake well done that it would take longer to cook but I mean it would have been coal by this stage if they had it on that long! He gets the same thing each time and the lead time had never been that long before, the only plausible explanation is that our server forgot to put the order through.

Food came out at 7.05 finally.. 2 steaks and 3/4 sides we had ordered, half of my boyfriends chips had fell on to the servers tray leaving him with half the amount I had, thinking the server would have addressed the lack of chips nothing was said and the pile on her tray was ignored. I was too hungry at that point to care, thinking that was the last thing that was going to go wrong.. remembered when I was almost finished my meal the market veg still hadn’t came so just had to cancel it from the order as I was not paying £3 for veg to arrive after my meal.

They gave us to complementary drinks, a cocktail and a coke to compensate. However this really didn’t cut it as we ended up late to the show and out of pocket on a £58 meal which wasn’t up to scratch. I’m not one to complain and leave a review but I am just disappointed a restaurant we hold in such high regard and recommend to all our friends really let us down.

I understand Saturdays can be busy but we have never hard such poor service before..

Myself and my partner went on sat night the menu is small but what was on it or what we order was all cooked to perfection I would go as far to say it’s one of the nicest steaks I’ve had and the buttery mash was beautiful the only thing is the sauces could be doing with being abit bigger for the price, the cocktails were so nice actually tasted the alcohol in them. The staff were so nice and friendly and really attentive and I didn’t feel rushed to leave our table when we were finished like some other places! We will definitely be back such a good wee spot

The fillet steak was outstanding the best I have ever ate, the onion rings top of the ratings as well, but the chips, I do loathe "McDonald Chips" the one thing that let it down.
We were placed beside the fence with the prickly greenery not sure why as the restaurant wasn't busy and it was quite annoying.

On Saturday evening I ordered a burger. It looked very attractive when it arrived at the table. However, the quantity of salt in the burger was over whelming as was the level of fat. I spent the rest of the evening with heartburn as a result of the fat. I would not order a burger here again but perhaps would try a steak. The restaurant is well laid out and is conducive to a pleasant dining experience. Overall my advice is to cut the salt and the fat content of the burgers and give the burger clientele a healthier meal all round.

For a steak house not overly impressed for our 1st time there, asked for the topblade steak, cooked medium. Both steaks were borderline rare and extremely chewy. I put up with mine but my partner had to ask for it to be cooked again. Recieved £2 of the bill for this. Good points place is extremely clean and looks nice.

Overall good, portions could be improved but suspect it was more to do with the early bird menu which the staff don’t make you aware of. We would certainly try it again. Quality of food excellent, could improve sweet selection.

I am not a lover of steak usually but I was told by a family Member to try it.
I have to admit the way it was sliced up , presented , and cooked to perfection I really enjoyed it . We had a party of 4 and all had the offer that was on , great value for money.
Can’t wait to go back again .👍

Had a lovely night out, service was great. Steak was over cooked but still enjoyable, it does get expensive ordering everything separately and also the steak came with rocket anyway which wasn’t clear as I went and ordered rocket salad as a extra, I would have ordered something else if I knew

The only reason why I wouldnt recommend the restaurant is because the food was cold and I still felt hungry after having a starter and a fillet steak. The food quality was excellent though.

This was my second time dining at TopBlade and it’s simply fantastic, the menu, food quality, staff and setting are all exceptional. The whole experience is well thought out and really contends as one of the better places to eat in Belfast.
I would thoroughly recommend TopBlade to anyone who wants a high quality, yet affordable steak dinner in Belfast.

Well done Zara & Team

The filet was cooked to perfection I barely even touched any of the pepper sauce as I didn’t want to ruin the flavour of the meat. The ambiance of the small restaurant was brilliant and the staff very attentive. We will definitely be back
