Excellent staff and very tasty food

Just eaten here tonight on a voucher deal. We live locally but have never been to the electric bar. The bar had excellent pre dinner drinks deals on Thursdays and early Friday's. Menu had some lovely food, perhaps an additional vegetarian dish would have given the full 5 stars. Staff were... read more

Dined here recently just after the new menu change and they've got it right again. Beautifully presented dishes with great contrasting flavours. Finished off with the well named Financier cake. Service was polite and courteous, also great value.

From the sophisticated cocktails in the bar with views over Brayford Wharf to the relaxed dining experience in the modern restaurant, we had a wonderful evening here for my birthday. The food was well presented, and imaginatively cooked. Elly, the front of house made us feel very welcome and seemed to anticipate or needs, in fact all the staff we... More

Visited here for a sunday dinner and was pleasantly surprised. The staff were very helpful and the food was tasty. The bar and restaurant have a very nice feel to them and appear very modern with great views over the city and the Brayford.

Steak night £29.95 for x2 8oz rumps and a bottle of wine. Nicely cooked steak and the triple cooked chips were very tasty, I had mushroom sauce which was a great compliment to the meat. Was quiet tonight for a Wednesday which I was surprised about for the great value. Service was excellent. Will definitely return.

We went to the restaurant because it was recommended by a friend, we arrived out of the glass lift and was greeted straight away by a staff member who ordered our drinks and recommend the new dishes on the menu. We went through and sat at our table with a breath taking view of the cathedral. The food was also... More

I recently took my partner here for a treat as it was his birthday. The restaurant contacted us on the day to make sure we was still coming. We felt that was a nice touch that not many restaurants do. We arrived a little early but we had a drink in the bar area and the waitress came and got... More
