We dine frequently at Silk Room and the food and service is always of the highest quality. We enjoyed the sea bass and kangaroo steak dishes this time. Both cooked to perfection. Finished off with a delicious crème brulee. Excellent bottle of Marlborough sauvignon blanc too. We will be back again soon.

We went here for a birthday dinner. Arrived early but was able to be seated. Ample time to check out the menu. Nice selection of champagne and not too pricey. The staff were great, the food was good. I felt that the venison was a little tough for my liking but non the less tasty. Overall very enjoyable, would definitely go there again

We arrived a little early expecting to be able to get a drink in the bar area, however there really isn't a bar area so we were shown to a table.

The overall look of the restaurant is ok at best it certainly doesn't say top end dining! The tables were very close together and had it been busy this would have been awful but it wasn't, there were maybe three other table in the whole time we were there.

We were given menus and found the wine and drinks list on the table. The menu has some lovely dishes on although the choice was not overly extensive. The prices were what I would expect in a top end restaurant.

We ordered wine and water and both were brought to us and poured. We then ordered food, we both had Scallops with chorizo and pea puree to start which to be fair was delicious, the scallops were huge and cooked to perfection. Our main course was Steak, one sirloin and one fillet. They arrived and presentation was ok but not great, the vine tomatoes looked more like cheap cherry tomatoes and seemed as if they had been warned in the microwave and the one average size mushroom was hardly impressive and looked drenched in oil. Needless to say I did not eat mine! My sirloin was cooked nicely but could have done with more Garlic butter. My partner fillet looked as if it was cooked nicely but he said it was quite tough for a fillet and actually left some of it. We both agreed we have had better steaks and paid considerably less for them. We also ordered a portion of onion rings which were well just average onion rings.

The restaurant was so hot it made us rather uncomfortable and when we asked the waitress said she would turn on the air con which to be fair made little difference.

The service on a whole was not great and considering how quite it was I would have expected excellent service, it most certainly was not worth the 10% service charge automatically added to the bill.

So we paid our bill of £128.00 and walked away disappointed.

Took advantage of the early bird menu as we were seeing a show at the arena. Couldn’t fault the food and the brownie for dessert was the best I have ever tasted . The service was excellent. Will be going back when next in the area.

It's our favourite place to eat in Newcastle. Eating here never disappoints. We have been three times in the last month, bringing both business clients and family & all of them have been very impressed.
The early evening menu is fantastic value for money & the choice of food is really comprehensive. We love the ambience & the unobtrusive service. If you have never been definitely go along & try it out.

The restaurant was far far too hot. It seemed heating had been turned up and air conditioning off, on a warm August evening. It was very uncomfortable. Had to go outside several times to cool down and breathe. The table for two that we were given was less than 1 foot away from another table for two, albeit there was a small screen between the tables albeit not between the diners chairs. This meant that the man at the next table was sitting closer to me than my date, and I could hear him speak more clearly than my date, and we could hear every word of the conversation at the next table. This inhibited our conversation substantially, as we realised everything we said was audible to these strangers.
We ordered a bottle of champagne. Initially the wrong one was brought. This was remedied. However, the large icebucket was plonked down on our small table for two. It got in the way of our dining experience. Why the restaurant does not have an icebucket stand to put the champagne beside the table, or why the bottle was not kept on the bar nearby, I don't know.
There were a number of waiters in the restaurant, but they were not attentive and did not top up our champagne glasses at all, leaving us to do this ourselves, until they made a final attempt, when the bottle was virtually empty.
Had to look round for a waiter when we needed one, and struggled to catch their eyes as they seemed more engrossed in their own conversations at the bar.
Food was good. Decor is good. Experience could be so much better.

I took my girlfriend here for a romantic meal, and was not disappointed. The food is exceptional, and the menu is quite varied. Every dish that was brought out of the kitchen for the other patrons looked amazing, and when our food arrived it was presented beautifully, and tasted amazing.

The ambiance is lovely - quiet music that sets the mood, and with only a handful of tables the restaurant is quiet and romantic.

Perfect for a date or anniversary.

Dined here last night and had a really great time. Service was brilliant from the second we arrived with nice touches like taking my coat & pulling out my chair etc. The food was beautiful too. Ingredients were high quality and dishes had good rich flavours. Atmosphere was warm (boutique style feel to it) and intimate. Surprised when the bill came and excellent value as thought it would be a lot more. Will return and certainly recommend.

Silk Room restaurant was busy on the Friday evening we went there. The staff were friendly and attentive and there was a buzz about the restaurant. The food was ok - we had steak and also lamb shanks but they lacked some flavour which was a shame. Our other issue was it was very hot in the restaurant - maybe we were unlucky in this respect because we hit a hot weekend weather wise but they could do with installing a cooling system.
