Great setting and great food, just a little over priced for what it was, however, I would certainly stay and dine again here

Booked for our 1st wedding anniversary as we had our wedding reception in the rum warehouse! Lovely touched by the staff for our anniversary which made our evening that little bit more special! Waitress was really friendly and attentive! Food was amazing as always, will defiantly be returning.

Lovely restaurant but not so lovely food. Very over priced for what it is, I paid £20 for a main that was tiny and the taste was not worth the price at all. I was still very hungry afterwards so had to eat elsewhere too.

Beautiful venue but felt the menu let it down- very small selection so it felt like a hotel restaurant rather than one in its own right. Expected more and glad to have tried it but won’t be in a rush back

Great food in a lovely environment. Waiter was really lovely. Not Michelin starred cuisine but that’s not what we wanted or expected and you pay for what you get! Just good tasty food. Would definitely recommend.

Not enough staff, consequently too much waiting for service or attention. Also in my case, despite when ordering requesting that the salmon should not be be overcooked, it was indeed served so and was therefore tough. It was replaced, and the second attempt was significantly better, but the time taken was excessive meaning that I was left to eat my meal after my wife had finished hers. We ate on other nights in this restaurant, and on one evening had to return a steak as medium rare rump was served virtually raw. This was handled with professionalism from an attentive waiter called John, and I thank him for looking after us well on that night. We feel that although this restaurant appears capable of producing good food it is somewhat of a lottery, especially as it may well have waited a significantly long time after cooking before actually being served at the table. They have the potential to make this a very good restaurant but need especially to improve on their service attention at times.

We booked the table for our first anniversary but didn’t feel very romantic, not enough variety on the menu and bland food. Quite disappointed and we also had breakfast the next day which was very disappointing the bacon was rock hard the sausages were bland and mass produced, the mushrooms were slimy and the tomatoes were tasteless.

The staff made us feel very welcome and were very attentive. The food, whilst good, was not, we felt, outstanding for the price that we paid. I would say that the starters were better value than the main courses and desserts.

Love the dining room. Decor is really attractive, giving it a nice vibe. Derelict building next door isn’t pretty but doesn’t put you off eating.
Service was Goodish. Our young server was only into day 2 of her job but she started off well then got a bit mixed up later when the wine, sauces and mustard were a bit late coming.
Food, sadly, was typical pub food cooked alright but nothing special. My medium steak took some chewing! We had probably by the lunch we had elsewhere earlier that day.
Would I go again? Probably. I love the place and enjoy being there with a quality glass of rum. Would be more careful choosing what I had next time.

We stayed at the Titanic and booked here for our first night. The food was lovely but the service was very poor. We were left for 40 mins after our main course without even being asked if we wanted drinks. No one asked about tea or coffee etc. Hardly any staff and very poorly organised but the food was delicious

Quite hard to find and a bit off the beaten track. Staff not helpful,we’d never been here before but were unable to catch anyone’s eye for help even though it was very quiet. Service very slow. Food ok and reasonably good value but the staff definitely let it down

We had a fantastic 25th anniversary meal at Stanley’s bar & grill. Despite being relocated to the bar area for dinner - the Roma F.C. team trumped us! - our meal and overall experience was exceptional.
We both opted for the sirloin steak - stunning - followed by dessert recommendations by our waiter John.
All the staff were superb, special call out to John who was knowledgeable about the hotel, Liverpool and the menu. He made our meal fun.
Also to the overall manager Gerry. Thank you for looking after us so well.

I'm afraid the food didn't live up to the menu or the pricing. It was well presented but mostly tasteless. Almost £300 for a simple dinner for 6 I thought was expensive, especially when you are asked to pay for the car park when you leave!!! We eat out regularly and do have much better food for two thirds the price. Our waitress was nice and helpful though. I think this place is mostly catering for the corporate/business and overseas guest. In summary, a nice place but expensive for what it is.

The food at the restaurant was excellent and the staff were friendly. It’s about my fourth visit to the hotel but probably my last. The service was fast and intrusive. The waiter leaned over us to collect cutlery during the main course and interrupted us on too many occasions. By contrast it was impossible to get table service in the bar and the background music was too loud and echoey. The hotel is aspirational and the food lives up to this but the service let’s it down. A disappointing 50th birthday event.

Went here for a meal. Husband ordered the scallops but you only got two tiny ones and then he got the fillet steak which he said was ‘alright’ I expected more for £35quid to be honest. I got the sea bass as a main and it said it came with rice, it arrived with no rice but litterally a sprinkle of hard toasted grains of rice, it would have been nice to of been advised this when I asked if I needed any sides. It was alright basically, we had a gift card but I’d of been quite disappointed if we were to have paid the full bill

The staff we’re lovely and super helpful but considering this restaurant is in a luxury hotel the food wasn’t great at all for the price I was paying £15 for a burger that I could have got at Burger King.. the side salad was awful and limp lettuce, dry tomato and a dry limp piece of gherkin.. not impressed..

One of the worst dining experiences for a long time unfortunately.

Restaurant had a nice ambience and our waiter was lovely, but that's about it.

Food selection was poor and misrepresented . We had the tear and share bread which was rock hard, flavourless and really poor value for money.

My partner had the veal at £26 which came with a few chips and some grated parmesan, woefully presented and nothing worth the amount it cost. He said it was just ok.

I had the sea bass which said rice and sauce. I checked the the waiter who said yes and when it came the tiny overcooked sea bass was presented on a warm salad and veg concoction , with a few strands of very hard rice thrown over for decoration. One of the worst dining experiences for a long time.

To top it off we got ripped it to the tune of £80 and all I got for it was a very poorly tummy!

Would I go again, apsolutely not! Would I recommend, never!

What a shame as it has the potential to be so much more....

The table was booked for the Stanley Bar but due to a private function in there we were seated in the Rum bar where proper table seating had been set up. (The Rum bar is usually sofas and low tables not suitable for eating a hot meal - this we found out disappointingly last year). The staff are very friendly and attentive, nothing is too much trouble and it is service with a smile. The food is well presented and nice and hot when it arrives. Portions are very generous. The only niggle is the car park charge, don’t see why this is when we where spending the better part of £200 for 5 covers, (only one glass of wine included in that price by the way, 5 main meal, 4 desserts and 5 coffee) the car park fee should be refunded when you are spending in the hotel.

Stayed at the Titanic and dined with my 12 year old son for his first trip to Anfield. The food was excellent, great Steak and Fish dishes followed by the best Sticky Toffee Pudding EVER!!!!
Drinks menu extensive including any kids mock-tail you want. My son was made to feel special throughout and the staff are so attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Well worth the 4.5 hr drive and my son and is desperate to return the same time next year...
Highly recommended.

We had a lovely meal here for my birthday. The service was great, unfortunately our order didn’t reach the kitchen and we did have a 35minute wait but the manager was so kind and apologetic (we hadn’t even complained). Overall we had a lovely meal and had money knocked off the bill. We will definitely be returning. Thank you for great customer service.
