We go to Liverpool 2 or 3 times a year and, while my husband goes to a meeting, I enjoy the city sites and have lunch at The Side Door. The food has never disappointed, It is imaginative and tasty. This time I had Scallops with Chorizo and a pear and green leaf salad. It was lovely. The service is... More

We had 3 course pre-theatre menu, fantastic quality served with very nice wine at a reasonable price. Surroundings and ambience very well suited to area of Liverpool. Stayed on a bit but were not rushed out and the staff were very pleasant and professional. Highly recommended.

We dined here as a party of four on a Saturday lunchtime, all of us opting for the battered haddock and chips from the £5 lunch menu. The food was excellent and very homely. We also enjoyed the overall feel of restaurant and the service was very friendly. I would definitely return, and the a la carte menu is also... More

I've been to the side door many times and intend to go again and again. It is great quality food served well in an unpretentious manner and for a completely reasonable price (they have a five pound lunch menu!). The service is great, from what I can see they hold onto their staff as each time I go I recognise... More

The kitchen was closed at my first choice for the evening and the waitress/hostess recommended the Side Door Bistro. Great recommendation. The prix fixe menu was just right. A starter of shrimp (a little small) with wild rice (mainly white rice and a few grains of wild and I doubt it was Minnesota or Wisconsin wild) but the flavors mixed... More

I can't rate this restaurant highly enough. I have eaten here many times over the years. Food is always good. Place is nice.Try and book upstairs. Clientele is high quality. Another plus point is all the portions are large. None of this tiny portions you get in many restaurants and having to have a take out on the way home.... More

We had lunch, they have a special which is very limited but a great price (£5) and the choice although limited had a meat, fish and veggie option (1 of each). We both had burgers and although not exceptional in anyway were nice homemade burgers and good for the price. I think the reviews had set a bar that wasn't... More

Visited this week with my partner. Lovely atmosphere and set-up. Waiting on staff very very pleasant. The food was nice however very small portions for a calamari starter which normally was approx £7 but did have a fabulous teriyaki mayo and came with lovely warm bread to dip. Steak for main course was very average and small and thin. We... More
