The food was faultless, however the staff were so miserable and rude! Maybe the waiting staff should be paid a little more and the manager, or whoever the girl in the suit was, should definitely go on a customer service course for about 2 years!!! People obviously go there to be seen, they are not interested in a lovely evening! Want to Gino’s the following evening, different story all together.

Three of us had dinner on a Saturday evening, the food was amazing we had the antipasto misto which was a great selection of meats, cheeses and vegetables which was perfect for the three of us.
For mains we have the chateaubriand and a pasta dish, these were hot and nicely presented.
The desserts of profiteroles and a chocolate dome were just fabulous!

Really disappointed very small portions with no potato or vegetable served with main meals nor was this advised at time of placing order.

Left the restaurant still hungry with my 15 year old son asking if he could get something else to eat!

Not good

Always find it an excellent spot for lunch. Great service, super food and wine and a lovely ambience.
Prices not bad either. It always maintains its standards of service, whether busy or quiet and the food and drink are great.

I booked this for my daughters 18th birthday ( i ticked birthday on the reservation form).
We were seated , in a virtually empty restaurant ( 4 other tables occupied), next to a pillar, facing the fire escape and with a till point ?behind us. We were not offered a choice of tables. This was used by staff walking to and fro behind us. On the reservation it states there will be a (small) birthday cake for the occasion, this did not happen.
Disappointing all round to be honest, and the privilege of paying over a £100 pounds and not informed that the service charge was already on the bill.

Food was lovely, full of flavour and good size portions! However, prices are too high. Cost around £150 just for 3 people having 2 courses...Although nice place for a meal on a special occasion if you don't mind having a very expensive meal!

Lovely decor food was delicious and staff very friendly , the nicest pornstar cocktail I have ever had and I’ve had a few they also brought out a cake for my friends birthday free of charge which I thought was lovely , highly recommended, only thing I would say spoilt it a bit was we were sat right near the kitchen and all the waiters were lined up in a queue and I felt a bit rushed as if I was being watched but at least the service was quick !

I have been a few times before and have always had a pleasurable time. This time round I wasn’t as impressed. I found my lamb was over cooked although asked for it medium-rare. I also had to remind the staff to bring out the complimentary birthday dessert I was told I would receive.
I expected a little better considering the style of restaurant and the price.

Although at first the waitress was slow to come and take our drinks order. She did then take our drinks and food order at once, to compensate for the wait. Apart from that the service was very good.

We've dined at Rosso many times and it never fails to deliver. We had the lunch menu and a bottle of wine which is a good quality, especially for the price of£9.95 the service was excellent and the food delicious. The only small negative was the chicken breast for the main course did not come with any vegetables or potatoes so you had no choice other than to order a side dish. Other than that it was an excellent experience as always

Since the restaurant was refurbished a year or two ago it has really lost its atmosphere and charm - Even the staff don't seem particularly happy to be there! They were all very polite and helpful and lovely, it all just felt a little flat.
The tables were far too close together... maybe just take out one table per row and space the rest out - this would be perfect. Bring the old soul back that Rosso used to be so renowned for ...and get the old photos all the way down the staircase again!
Food wise: Lamb was amazing, desserts were really disappointing :(
I've not written Rosso off, I am just hoping it comes back to life.

We visited for lunch. Service was great and the food was fresh and tasty. However, the venison meatballs were extremely gristly which was extremely off putting and my partner could not eat the rest of the meal. Having said that, all other items we ordered were absolutely delicious. Based on this, though we would not be in a rush to come back.

Had a lovely afternoon. Service is spot-on. Went for the 2 course lunch deal menu with a bottle of wine for £9.99, big mistake. Food was lovely, service was spot-on, value was just OK but the side dishes were all an added extra AND the £9.99 bottle of wine was pretty bad. We couldn’t drink it and ended up buying another bottle for £27 which bumped up the bill. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return (been quite a few times and never been disappointed - this restaurant is so tastefully decorated) but please don’t be fooled by the “good value” lunch menu. It turned out to be more expensive than we thought. Great afternoon though.

Whilst the food is oustanding as per previous visits. On this occasion service was poor. Didn't get asked for a drink until food order then starters arrived 20 mins later & still no drink then waiter said he had to pour them himself behind bar, it wasnt busy. Mains timing & food very good. We asked for dessert menus they didnt arrive waiter kept referring as if someone else was responsible to bring it over. Got menus with a poor choice of xmas desserts of which non of us liked. Id emailed 3 weeks before asking if normal dessert menu was on but had no reply. We then waited 15 to 20 mins for waiter to come over & ask if we wanted anything, which we didnt. All in all without normal service waiting time this was extended by another 45 mins. Its poor given price & a low number of 10 tables in our area which was being serviced by 2 waiters & a head waiter guiding them. The waiter seemed unhappy & gping through the motions not helping us experience our pre new year date with any exctitement, rapport or pace.
