Food was very good, steak was just a bit cold but everything else was perfect especially the profiteroles, they were amazing! The restaurant wasn’t packed just a hand full of people, the service was too quick, as we only arrived and were asked to order without looking at the menu and after our dinner we ordered dessert and it came straight away, no time to relax in between courses.

But apart from that it was a very great meal and I would definitely go back!

Finally a restaurant in the heart of Belfast city centre selling superb quality food, that isn’t overpriced.
Go. You’ll love it.

My daughter and I had the most wonderful experience at Top Blade. We booked a table for 2 and were very fortunate to secure a table here for a Saturday night. We had Mojitos🍸FABULOUS!! We both had Flat Iron Steaks 🥩 which were both cooked to PERFECTION👌🏽(Med/Rare). The sweet potato fries were delicious and the Wine List offered a great selection. We both had Profiteroles...they were delicious and A MUST! I, unfortunately didn’t catch the lovely greeter’s name (she was cheerful, helpful and such a pleasant first point impression) Our server ‘Molly’ was so pleasant and made us feel special. Overall, Top Blade has left us with a positive impression of a young, vibrant and classy establishment! I look forward to returning here again.

The main course was lovely, steak cooked to perfection - I added the prawns to make it a surf'n'turf, which were also really tasty. If I were to be critical in anyway, the menu could have a few more options.
Would definitely go back.

Food was cold ! and when this was pointed out we got very little feed back or an answer to why.
Bill cam up over chargers by £40. which needed to pointed out as well.
All this when there were only 3 tables in use.

Food was tasty, I had the flat iron with fries, spinach and peppercorn sauce. Steak was cooked exactly as I asked, the sauce was beautiful and there was a lot of spinach but couldn’t have had more fries. My partner had a sirloin steak off the specials menu but was still hungry after that AND our profiteroles. Would return but not when super hungry. Service wasn’t great, we waiting forever for the bill after confirming we weren’t ordering any more drinks after desserts but I would still return probably for a quick lunch after shopping

Genuinely one of the most disgusting meals I’ve had in Belfast in a very long time. Bitterly disappointed. Have told at least 15 people today alone to avoid at all costs. Waste of money and ruined what should have been a great Christmas night out with friends.

Shown straight to table which was too close to the ones either side very cramped into corner. Menu simple and easy read, kids menu provided but table that came in after us order was taken first. Bit frustrating. Food ordered and had a long enough wait to then be let down when eating it. Steaks not cooked as asked, they had obviously been flashed under grill as one side cooked other side raw food also wasn’t overly warm. £3 for a side of creamed spinach and it hadn’t a bit of seasoning or flavour to it never mind cream. We have ate in flat iron restaurant in London and were so looking forward to the Belfast version as menu is the same food, dishes and even printed the same way but it doesn’t compare whatsoever definitely won’t recommend

The docor is lovely, quirky place and an interesting concept. We arrived and it was freezing and no sign of heating going on. The table opposite us where eating their mains with their coats on!! Theyve no starters which is really disappointing as I love to start with something, even breads or a soup would have been nice. They give out complimentary popcorn which was lovely but wasn't a great substitute for a lack of a starter. I opted for the 10oz sirloin special and my girlfriend had the top blade steak. Mine was tasty but could have definitely used more seasoning. The top blade was tough and chewy, but you can't expect more when it's only a tenner. The sides where nice but the spinach was horrible, couldn't eat it. It was a dark green goo, almost like mushy peas! The desserts where simple but tasty and ample size. The service was warm friendly and helpful but we got served by two different people at different stages which was a bit confused. Overall I've gave 3 because although this could be a lovely restaurant, it feels like they have just got lazy with the menu or else been too conservative and there is so little choice. The service was friendly but the restaurant was cold and lacked any atmosphere. Your product is a good start but needs expanded on. I would return again, but not in a hurry. I'm happy to spend £20-30 or even more for a good steak, so the price point doesn't really make me want to rush back.

Top Blade's vegan steak might just be the best thing I have eaten in my life! Cooked perfectly, seasoned well, and the garlic and chilli dip was SO fresh it was a delight!
We had a very lovely waiter and the ambience and surroundings were beautiful.
It's also very reasonably priced! For 3 vegan steaks, 3 sides, 3 dips, bottle of wine and two soft drinks, I couldn't believe it was only £67 for the quality of the food we received!
Can't wait to go back 😁

Great atmosphere, really attentive and friendly staff, fast service.
Love the concept with basically only one main, and they did it good. Even if I have had better steaks, never in that price range, so great value. Also above normal cocktails.
Only negative I can mention is; skip the dessert. Profiteroles was not up to par.

Simple menu - a steak (beef, or a decent vegan option available) with sides and sauce. Great price, and the food arrived quickly and cooked as ordered.
The portions are reasonable - good size but not excessive - and the service is excellent.

There is one steak option along with a steak sandwich. The choice was which sauce would accompany your flat iron steak. Don’t get me wrong, it was delicious. However; if you have a partner that doesn’t want steak, don’t go.

Great. Copies all of the good features from Flat Iron in London. Portions a smidge small however more than reflected in the price. Great value. Left sitting for the bill for too long but in no rush at least.
