Our table was by the door so cold, the service is very poor. Forgotten drinks, over an hour wait for food. It's loud in there but I like that. My friend had the lobster ravioli and was shocked to see just one ravioli. Not sure I would return.

I have been here twice with my friend for bottomless brunch. The waitress who comes round and refills your Prosecco glasses is lovely, I don't know her name but she's been there both times and she is great. It's a beautiful setting, nice, interesting food with great ambience. Love coming here.

atmosphere very nice - lovely surroundings -

value - fair - portions on the measly side -

one of our party hasd the vegetarian breakfast - unfortunately it was disappointing.

Our vegan burgers were lovely but came with no Yorkshire puddings only came with sweet potato fries - not much else! - bit steep for price - my nephew went home and had another lunch!

Overall ambience and I have to say service was 5 stars just a bit mean on the portion size and also need to improve the veggie breakfast.

We were celebrating the 87th Birthday of a wheelchair dependent blind Guy plus my twin Grandchildren so we need a restaurant that is friendly to such a different group. Six handles this extremely well & everyone enjoyed themselves. Six staff kindly put a candle on our dessert & delivered it with a chorus of Happy Birthday! My friend & Grandchildren thoroughly appreciated that initiative.

Very nice setting and ambience. Was a loud party near to where we sat but this isn't something the restaurant can control. Food was flavoursome and well presented but was quite pricey in comparison to other fine dining restaurants i have visited.

This was my first visit to SIX and I had high expectations and they were definitely met! The service was excellent. I was having dinner with a friend so we had all the time to chat and catch up without being fussed or hurried. Food was delicious! The sharing platter to start was AMAZING!
The ambience is lovely...great music, fab foliage canopy and nice lighting. It’s not quiet so if you want that this maybe isn’t the place but if you want some atmosphere then I couldn’t recommend it more.

Won’t be long before I’m back! Brunch is on my list to try...

Venue was far too loud and couldn't hear my date across from me. Traffic from street made worse by very noisy guests that the staff made no effort to control. Other guests also appeared uncomfortable.
House rose tasted like vinegar and we sent it back for the much more costly rose which wasn't chilled and straight out of a box.
The staff were friendly but appeared disjointed and not cohesive.
For a place that is meant to represent fine dining, I do not think this measures well. Casual dining perhaps.
Overall, left feeling disappointed.

Food was good, service terrible. It wasn't the staff's fault they just have not been trained. I had to constantly flag down a server to get a drink and then to have the drink which sat on bar delivered and to finally pay. The manager was speeding around not doing alot and talking on his phone mostly. Restaurant empty on a Friday night this could be the cause.

Lovely setting/decor, polite and friendly staff. So many vegan options which sounded very tasty too. Defianately try the vegan carrot cake! Delicious! The roast dinner was tasty but swimming in watery gravy so ask for it on the side. If you want to tip the waiting staff directly, ask for the service charge to be excluded from the bill and leave money for them, they don't see any of it! I will be going back to try other options on the menu and telling friends!

Disappointing

We arrived at SIX to find it about half full. It was a friend's birthday so we were looking for good food and atmosphere.
We got menus and set about selecting cocktails, wine and food. We tried to put in an order but there were not many waiting staff, the next table had similar issues. Eventually we left the table to talk to the lady running front of house. We then got a lovely waitress who was rushed off her feet trying to cope with all her tables. She took our order for drinks and food.
After another fairly long wait - we got all the drinks - cocktails and wine - and most of the atarters all at once. One starter was missing and it took a while to get it - a mix up in the kitchen apparently. When it arrived it was very nice. We all enjoyed the food. However getting drinks and food all at once was not ideal or usual.
Then we had another lengthy wait and then the main courses arrived - or rather 3 out of 4 of them did. Again a meal was missing - another kitchen mix up. The waitress was very apologetic.
We ordered another drink but has to chase a number of times until it finally arrived. Then they brought a side dish we'd not ordered, we said it was not ours but they left it anyway. They did put it on the bill - which was a surprise.
The food was good and our waitress was great - but she was literally running between all her tables.
SIX promised a lot but sadly did not deliver on Saturday night. They need more staff and better systems in the kitchen. The food is good but the service needs serious attention.
Not sure we'll be back.

Selected this restaurant on the basis of the Opentable and Trip Advisor reviews as I don't know the area. Really enjoyed the food - had smoked salmon and crayfish tails to start and the duck confit as the main and all was excellent. Nice bistro environment and would definitely go back if I'm in town.

This is the third time I've been to this restaurant and every time I've been I've had amazing food and great service. I have to admit it's my favourite restaurant in brighton as it really caters for people that have intolerants to food like me. They do a wide range of Gluten free & Vegan. All of their produce is Organic I'm not sure if that is why it tastes so good as being organic it's much better quality. I highly recommend this place for either breakfast lunch or dinner as every course I've tried has been fantastic. Also I love the interior of the restaurant it's very Hove but still comfortable.

2nd time going there, 1st time was weekday evening with a friend, it was great, this time Sunday lunch with family, not so good. Children next to us left by parents, while they went to bar having eaten, being very noisy indulging in smart phone antics, service was poor, too attentive when not required, then the opposite, had to wait an eternity for main meal....deserts were screwed up, in that we received someone else's order, then the bill, with 10% service included, bloody cheek. Not the cheapest restaurant in town either.

The food was reasonably tasty but quite a few ingredients ran out, so where 2 people had ordered the same meal they were missing key ingredients and were replaced with cheaper versions. It felt a bit like it was trying to be high-end but failing. And we were suspicious that a so called vegan meal was not vegan (not the end of the world, but don't advertise a vegan meal if it's not one).

The meals didn't arrive at the same time and one of the starters was forgotten. When we asked about the missing meals the response was "what are you, time-keepers?". Potentially the worst response to a complaint I've ever received. It was actually comical!

After getting the bill wrong twice they did take the service off. The prosecco was nice and some of the waiting staff very friendly. I would maybe go back for brunch or a coffee if in the area, but don't waste your money on lunch/dinner.

All our party were extremely disappointed. The food had an excessive amount of chilli so you couldn't taste the actual meat you were eating. We request non dairy for one of our group who has an allergy - we chose this restaurant as the menu expressly stated which meals could be adapted for vegan, vegetarian and gluten free diets - rather than providing an option or mentioning if there was an issue the waiter returned with chips! And not even homemade chips, mass produced chips similar to thin MacDonalds chips.

So, if you state non dairy they will give you chips. Hardly what you expect for £16.00

On Friday 9th September, we got to a very empty restaurant around 9.30pm. As It wasn't very busy we chose our own table, but soon had to move as it was so wobbly. After the (pretty awful) waitress gave us our menus, we ordered cocktails, but were then told that we couldn't have them because the person that makes them wasn't there. But we swallowed this and asked for a bottle of red wine and ordered two starters and two steaks for main. 10 minutes AFTER we had ordered and brought over our wine, our waitress comes back over and tells us that we can't have steak because they had run out. Not only was this ridiculous because we had to wait until after we'd ordered something TWICE before we were told we couldn't have anything, this was a Friday night that wasn't busy at all and we couldn't have two things on the menu.

So we asked if we could just pay for the two glasses of wine we had poured - not the whole bottle because we definitely were not staying to drink it - and were charged £13.20 for the tiny amount of wine we had. And charged a service charge, which I think was totally unacceptable because we didn't receive any service. Your entire staff were behind the bar chatting the whole time we were there, except our waitress who seemed oblivious to absolutely everything.

I think it is absolutely awful thing to put up with, and totally unacceptable. I have been to SIX three times now and every time I have had appalling and rude service from a number of your staff – not even mentioning the awful dance music they had on full volume. It has just become more and more disappointing every time, and after this topped it off, I won’t be returning.

I thought you should also know that as we were walking out, we heard another customer complain about her tasteless and cold dinner.

The cocktail - trained barman didnt show up on the night we attended. (August bank holiday.. surely the busiest night of the year? Surely they should have more than one cocktail -trained barman?) So the espresso martini we had was.... ok. Just OK. I didnt finish mine.

My dinner date said his steak was excellent but I had the seabass. It was covered - & I mean COVERED - in a rich creamy sauce which in my opinion absolutely ruined it. Plus it had obviously been sitting under the hot lamps for a while on the pass as the sauce had a crust on it (YUCK!) & the veg was limp & crusted over from the heatlamp

On the plus side the place looks nice & has good ambiance & lighting.. And the wine was nice. Served in proper large ultra clean goblets which was good.

In summary... it was OK. Not amazing though.

Catalogue of disappointment! Arrived to find our online reservation hadn't been recognised then waited 45 minutes before we even got a jug of water or our drinks let alone order our food. We ordered bread and olives but weren't given plates. When our food arrived one order was wrong (tofu instead of chicken!) however was taken off the bill.
We decided not to pay the service which had been added to the bill. The waiter then turned nasty and said we were 'punishing the staff' , 'if you don't like us , we don't like you!' And 'we will remember you for next time'. We walked out assuring him - we would NOT be back!
