Great food as always, great service too! Is sad that there isn’t any live music anymore but I guess is Covid fault. Also was very very dark in there for some reason.

Management vocally aggressive on the door.
We arrived 20 minutes early and stood in line, Management were upset that we were in line prior to 8pm booking.
However party in front of us, had a booking for 7.30pm and couldn't be seated . So it was all nonsensical booking arrangements.

Place is style over substance.

Food came cold and had to be sent back.
Brisket dry and tasteless like leather innersole.

Too noisy.

Terrible Tables next to bar - ice and water flicked on our backs all night from bar staff mixing drinks.

Too many dinners- its all about money making and no concern for diners.
Will never return!

We had booked a table for 4 at 8pm. Once we arrived the atmosphere was nice and the restaurant was clean. It did however take 25 minutes to get anyone to take a drink order, by which time we had chosen our food too. The staff were not very helpful and when our food arrived they practically threw it on the table as they walked past not even stopping. Same for when we asked for a jug of water. They didn’t seem like they wanted to be there at all. The food was very good and portion sizes were good and it came in a good time. About 2 minutes into eating our mains (at 9:13pm) we were asked to pay the bill so I had to pay before I had even started eating which seemed quite rude. Unsure if this is to do with COVID regulations and shutting at 10 but this was 45 mins before bare in mind. Overall the food was good but service was shocking and I wouldn’t be tempted to go back.

David and his team were friendly and fun. Their service was calm and efficient. The food was delicious and it was great value for money. Cocktails were delicious. The whole venue is full of soul and I would recommend this place to anyone. Wish I lived closer so I could go every month!

A great place to visit. The burger was quite nice, nothing amazing, but the cauliflower wings were delicious. Drinks were also great, but a tad expensive so I'd recommend going on wednesdays when they cost £5. The service and waiters were all very helpful and friendly. The ambience, music, lighting, and overall vibe was lovely, very fun experience.

Really nice food, but it annoys me when the service charge or tip is automatically added to the bill without asking. We had a 15% tip added to our bill of £72 automatically. I would have probably added this anyway as the service was efficient and friendly, but I prefer to be asked out of courtesy. To have this removed from the bill would have meant asking the server to take the bill away and recalculate it which would have been embarrassing and unnecessary. All it means is that I won’t visit Blues Kitchen again which is a shame.

Unfortunately despite many visits there during "normal" times. our visit was extremely uncomfortable as it was overcrowded, no social distancing was present and no tables were out of use. We felt squashed between other people with no opportunity to feel safe.

Contact tracing, hand sanitising etc was minimal also.

I will not be returning until COVID is under control as the rules are not being followed here
