Unfortunately it wasn't what we were expecting. Small restaurant room was packed with tables, each party sitting on each others back. Very noisy..
Staff unexperienced, they don't know how to open or serve champagne although place call themselves champagne restaurant, shame. Quarter of our champagne ended up on the floor due to poor skills by staff, our orders was forgotten or misunderstood possibly because of language barrier. But not all bad, food was nice . Thank you Chef you saved the evening

Disappointing visit after previous good visits. Seems to have lost some of it's identity and lacked character and mood.
No specific theme to the limited menu with relatively high prices (mains £15-£30 ish).
Food was cooked ok, but not fresh - accompanying sauces were not homemade and vegetables did not feel fresh but seemed reheated which is not ok given the prices.
Sadly the decor and service did not match the marketing of it being a champagne bar, and felt dated and old in comparison to newer venues in Newcastle.
Service was lack lustre and not that of a high end restaurant or luxury champagne bar - Disappointing to see Service charge included as standard on receipt based on this.
Feels a little bit lost in terms of personality and vision and was a disappointing experience, not helped by it being extremely quiet (2 tables including us!) and us being seated next to the only other table who were in, so no privacy or opportunity for quiet conversations and being seated in front of the bar meant the 2 staff who were in were stood directly behind the tables throughout our evening.
With all the new venues opening in Newcastle, Silk Room will need to find it's unique selling point again or will likely struggle after years as a firm favourite.

Late booking for a birthday just 2 of us on a trip to Newcastle. Distanced tables with see-through screens between, although the restaurant had emptied by the time we got there. Good service, reasonable wine list -choice and price. Focus on champagne cocktails also which were very nice.Food choice a bit limited to be honest, restricted I think due to Covid, and a bit unusual.I had ravioli which was lovely but the dressing had far too much going on with cherry tomatoes & loads of rocket just a bit too much and overpowered the porcini filling.It also had a pesto oil so too many flavours.Otherwise nice -scallops to start which were OK.

Everything here was top notch. The selection of champagnes was great, the cocktails were delicious & the food was out of this world. Came here for a 5th anniversary and we will definitely be back! We both had the fillet steak and its no joke to say that it is now the bar against which all future steaks will be measured! Our first meal out post-lockdowns and I think we definitely chose well!

Excellent all round. Could not be better. Perfectly cooked steak which was seasoned well. Normally people get this wrong.

Staff could not be better. Our taxi went missing and the staff refused to let us stand outside till it came.

Would highly recommend a visit and will certainly be back.

Our first visit but certainly wont be the last small but intimate restaurant. Great service and good menu. I had salmon and crayfish starter followed by the kangaroo steak served medium rare. It was amazing - melted in the mouth. Hubby had the scallop and chorizo starter followed by fillet steak. Great presentation and perfect portion sizes, all washed down with a couple of champagne cocktails and a lovely bottle of pinot noir. All Very reasonably priced great service from the waiters who were helpful and friendly without being intrusive or patronising. All in all a great dining experience.
