We had a lovely evening, great value, great food and attentive service from staff.
The service were great and the staff were always happy to help, big up Richard(I think)with the pink ish tinted hair, he needs a pay rise
Great service, delicious meal and excellent cocktails. Staff are extremely friendly and attentive. We will definitely visit again.
Food was great. Service team were struggling. The lady serving us seemed somewhat stressed when there were very few people in the restaurant. After we had been waiting a while for drinks, we found someone else and then found out that she had gone home and they’d had to get someone else in due to only having one guy working alone. They tried to fix the issue but sadly it was incredibly slow both during and after cover arrived, it made spending money difficult - not good for them or us.
The service was a bit slow to start, the mains came out first followed by our drinks and then the nibbles we wanted to start.
Odd ordering to the food and drinks but the quality was really good and the people were nice.
The safety and efficiency of the Covid checks was very smooth.
Very friendly service and food was nice. Good ambience.
The food was very good quality and despite being in a pandemic we were able to enjoy a sense of normality and have a lovely meal
Hi Tracy, Thank you for your lovely review. We hope to see you back soon. Regards, VBBV Team
Our waiter was great, however food let the place down! Food was cold just like the restaurant, didn’t complain as didn’t want to wait longer for my food. Can’t say I’d go back
Great atmosphere and deals and value for money. Steaks are very good but also the chicken and burgers - something for everyone with great canal street service
Dear SueS, It is always great to see our guest leaving such a nice review. Thank you SueS! Regards, VBBV Team
Great food, service and ambience as always.
Expected less due to covid 19 but not at all, a perfect location and food for a perfect date.
Hi Vicky, Thank you for you review. We are try to be always be on the top of our game to ensure our guest experience the best, and to have such feed back like yours is always heart warming. We hope to see you soon again at Village Brasserie by Velvet. Kind Regards, VBBV Team
Considering it was the first night of opening after COVID-19, I felt that all of the staff were brilliant and really friendly. It was a shame that they had to stop making cocktails, it would maybe have been better if they had pre-made them, because there was a 30 minute wait due the demand of them! Myself and my friend had a great time though :-) thank you!
Dear EdenR, Thank you for your lovely review. I will pass on to my bar staff your review and we will make sure that on your next visit you will looked after well. Hopefully see you soon. Regrads, VBBV Team
I had a booking for two, we arrived on time and were told by a lady we are full, she conferred with the manager anhe said the same. We were seated outside, then two other females were seated outside. We then saw three men allowed to be seated inside. It felt very selective and not a good start to the night. Cancelled and went VIA instead.
Booked a table for drinks on Saturday and was impressed with the organisation in regards to the new COVID 19 process. Great drinks and very professional service.
Great job guys !
Dear richardP, Thank you for your lovely review. We worked hard the past weeks and to hear this from our guest is beyond heart warming. We hope to welcome you back soon. Best wishes, VBBV Team
Really speedy and friendly service. Food was so good, I had fillet steak and fries, I opted for truffle oil and Parmesan on my fries and honestly, they were the best fries I’ve had in months. Felt really safe with the social distancing, sanitising and stringent temperature checks. Really happy and would recommend.
Dear KelsieH, Thank you for your review! I will pass on your review to the kitchen. Safety now more that before is a Priority. We are proud that you felt safe under your visit. We hope to see you soon. regards, VBBV Team
Loud house/trance music at lunch time. Food mediocre. Smell from smoking outside coming down through window from pavement.
This was a special evening and it was excellent. Lovely food, nice service and good atmosphere. We will come again
Food was lovely, service very good and quality for the price
We loved it here - everything about it from he location to the decor to the gorgeous food!
Absolutely fantastic!!! Food was gorgeous but the service was even better!! Yan the waiter was fabulous, lovely man, couldn't do enough for us! Thankyou so much to Yan and the others for a great birthday meal and night. Xxxxxx defo be back, can't recommend enough.
Delicious food and friendly staff, highly recommended
Restaurant empty and lacking conviviality.
Great Sunday Lunch, couldn’t fault the service either.
Had the offer, Sunday lunch for 2 with a bottle of wine for £30. Excellent value .
Was our second time there, & will be returning .
Thank you for your lovely review. Hope to welcome you back soon.
Food amazing, had BOGOF main meal, really good value. Fabulous cocktails
We used to eat in Velvet 2 to 3 times a month but when it became Macro Pierre White, we stopped going in as the food was terrible and over priced. It is great to see it is back how it used to be . We will be eating there again. The service was great (friendly and attentive) and the food was nice albeit the new menu is not as good as the old Velvet Restaurant menu (bring back the pizzas!). Great wine selection. Looking forward to seeing you get your mojo back.
Thank you for your lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Outstanding food, amazing atmosphere nice and quiet. Lovely informative staff team. Offering recommendations for drinks and food. Definitely will be going again. Well done Velvet x
Thank you for your lovely review. Hope to welcome you back soon.
Mood was quiet but that was great as I hate eating in a noisy venue. Staff very helpful and food great ,> Huge portions and good value. Would recommend
It looked very nice and vibey but sadly lacking in atmosphere. Pretty decor and one server very friendly but other one a bit brash and rushed. Food was ok but nothing special.
We came to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable from the very second we walked in. The restaurant was beautiful and the tables laid out perfectly. The food was outstanding, delicious and perfectly portioned. It was excellent value for money £40 for 3 courses and a bottle of wine for 2. I would highly recommend this as somewhere to eat, especially for a special occasion. The staff were really attentive and we had an amazing time
Lovely service, relaxed atmosphere, great tasting food. Enjoyed a Saturday evening meal with 4 friends and would definitely go back.
Great venue and great food!! Would visit again without doubt!!
Went there for my graduation party, the staff were really friendly, the food was a little late but it was amazing, the owner of the place gave us free drinks. I will defo go back.
After I made my booking, I received an email telling me that my booking had been cancelled by the restaurant with no explanation as to why. I rebooked with Richmond tea rooms instead, and will not book online with your restaurant again.
Table not ready upon arrival, had to push tables together. No crackers on table. Not aware of desert choices even though we’d pre booked. Audacity to add service charge on.
Great food and excellent value for money
Lovely restaurant, good value, well cooked food, service from all the staff was excellent.
This was a great find. Food reasonable and my brother in law said the scallops were the best he ever tasted !
The maitre d and waiter were both friendly and attentive and our food was excellent. Back to your best velvet! Well done. Lovely to get a card with a complimentary starter on our next visit too and what gorgeous food. Well worth it, thanks! We'll be back.
Hi MarkN Thank you for the review and for taking the time to feedback. We look forward to welcoming you again soon
We chose Velvet for a small reunion as we had been students together 50 years ago. We travelled in from all corners of the country. The food was great and the noise level was perfect as we really wanted to talk and catch up. The table was the perfect size for conversation too. Thank you- it was a memorable day.
Hi Jude Wow, what a great reason to be meeting up and thank you for choosing our venue to do it. We were thrilled to read that it was perfect for your occasion and we wish you all the best.
The waiter was a joy,funny but professional. The food was very good. the steaks cooked to perfection.
Hi ChristineL Thank you for the feedback and glowing review. I will pass the comments on to the team who will be thrilled. Thanks Again
